1) I'm generally fine with any level, whatever the level though i feel if we start at a low level, the focus of teh RP will be more social than combat, which is perfectly fine.
2)it would be pretty neat if the group started off in separate pairs and whatnot and eventually met up and formed one big guild
3)I plan to play a male who was in the beta [which will only really matter if we start at low levels]. his advance class would be in dual wielding [sword and axe]. He will happily help people choose combat and profession roles to whatever seems like most fun for them. He would insist that despite their being trapped, they still need to have fun, and live, and since those abilities and professions become your life in the world, its important to make those first few choices wisely.
4) m/f mostly for this character, I enjoy smut, but some story and character development with it is best. any bondage involved on the smut side of things should be consensual. I enjoy combat scenes, as long as they're not all over the place. the fights that take place should mean something.
