So I'm just spitballing here... but are the Advanced Class Guide Playtest classes available for use? I was thinking Brawler or Investigator.

Do you mean the Brawler archetype for the Fighter from Ultimate Combat and the Investigator archetype for the Rogue from the Advanced Player's Guide?  If so, those are fine.  If not (if they are full 3rd party classes) they wouldn't be allowed.

Aww, just noticed that another Rogue's been added, guess I was too late in getting my Ninja built and a background made for her. Ah well, that's just how things go, I guess.

Nope, neither. The Brawler and Investigator are two new 'hybrid' classes from the Advanced Class Guide, which is not yet published. Brawler is a sort of  Monk-Fighter hybrid, unarmed combat wearing armor and a pool of 'floating' bonus feats with limited-duration use. Investigator is a Rogue-Alchemist blend, who plays a lot like the old 3.5 Factotum (down to and including a Grit-like resource called Inspiration).

Ah, sorry.  I wasn't sure if you were still interested, my mistake.  :-(

I'm fine with you still joining if you'd like, though I don't know how much overlap there is between a Ninja and the other Rogues.  Either way, I'm not opposed to having some duplicate abilities.

Ah, thanks.  If it is from paizo and is free I guess it is alright.

One of the good things about rogues is that each individual one can be different.

We're level 1, anyways. The differentiation available to us between characters of the same class is almost nonexistent, assuming you're not deliberately building off-type.

There is still room for one if you'd like to join.  After that it will be full.

Nah, Glyphstone is right, at lower levels it's hard to see any differences between two rogue like classes - especially at level one.  It takes a few levels to notice any real difference at all unless the Ninja dives fully into their Poison Use ability (which I wasn't really planning to as I'd been considering taking the Cats Claws alternate racial ability to use natural weapons and I don't think poisoning myself would have been a smart thing to do) as at level one both classes are otherwise defined by Sneak Attack.
It's not really until the Ninja gets its own versions of the Rogue tricks or its ki abilities that it begins to stand out from its parent class.

While I'm still interested... I no longer have any idea what to play, haha.

Why not have two rogues? or ninjas? I dont see any problem of multiple "same classes" in group. It can be more of an joining thing, that dividing.

Group of rogues, forming an gang.. group of ninjas form clan... without taking anything away, instead adding to the mix. Character personality is the factor that makes the diffrence.

But if you think of addding something new to the mix, some divine caster might do wonders. Oracle for example (if feeling that religion is now your forte). Or pure fighter type. (Iwe been reading the alternative character classes, and Hunter seems pretty intresting)

Just play whatever you like. Don't worry about the system or the math. It's not a computer game where abilitier overlap too much, we have a GM. Roll whatever you want to play and stuff will take care of itself. :)

Given the stated need for something more martial minded, I'm thinking an Elven Slayer might do quite nicely. Ranger/Rogue hybrid, focused on tracking targets, and doing nasty things to them with a bow.

Hi,

Is this all filled up?  If not what classes are you light on? 

If so, no problem.  Maybe I'll catch it next time around or can fill-in later if someone drops.   :-)

Healer is a role I don't usually take, but I can look into cooking one up.

Also, I know it was preferred, but are all the PCs female?

Thank you for being so patient with me, but I've recently been accepted into a couple of other games and likely wouldn't have time for this one now - I apologise for taking up your time, and thank you for being so accomodating.
