Well, this whole thing will likely slow down to a crawl once I'm on my way to Camp Horizon in a few days, but I'll hopefully have this at least started before then.  But a bard tiefling sounds good.  We already have a tiefling, but as I said before, there's nothing wrong with having two of something lol.

Lol it's cool.  Basically, the world you're in now is centuries after heroes have gone the way of the dinosaurs, but with ever increasing threats on the rise, they'll be needed again.  Even if the Valorian Empire and their remaining heroes hadn't been destroyed and their defenders disappearing in disgrace, the rest of Eden'Dal would have risen up against the Empire for allowing what occurred with the fallen paladin and her army to happen in the first place once she was defeated.  The few long lived people from various elven and other long lived races that survived that dark time all agree, they'd rather deal with unscrupulous mercenaries than run the risk of heroes going bad again, a mindset that has filtered down to the rest of the world to varying degrees.  I'll include a more detailed accounting of the Age of Heroes and its aftermath, but that's the gist of it.

I have a character prepared for this but is it too late to jump in with a profile?

I don't see a problem, especially since someone said they'd be doing a cleric but has yet to carry through, and I was also promised a human shapeshifter that also never made an appearance that I can recall, so yeah, knock yourself out Honk.

Name: Hiro Sabreheim
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Appearance: Hiro is 6'4" and 210 lbs with medium-length, messy dark brown hair and steel-blue eyes.  He was someone that didn't give two-shakes of a rat's ass what people thought of the way he dressed; prefering comfortable, casual clothing without a care for popular fashion.  He wasn't fat, but wasn't overly muscular either, somewhere comfortably in the middle  with some muscle tone but little-to-no-definition.

Personality:  Introverted with slight sociopathic tendencies, a belief that "everyone is an idiot. even me sometimes."; Has a strong reverence for nature; prefers to have a small, trusted group of friends rather than lots of fair-weather "buddies".  However, he exemplifies altruism and loyalty toward those he does sincerely call friends.  Suffers from a form of "social disconnection" in dealing with others initially.

Hobbies: Playing Video games- namely RPGs, Writing, Backpacking, Hunting.
Skills: Survival training, The ability to mentally multitask and think creatively, some basic skill with firearms and archery equipment. Horse-riding
Background:  Hiro was what was in the clique of "oneself" and often considered himself to to be a "lonely ghost" a person that people often didn't realize was there unless they did something that grabbed attention.  Formerly a victim of severe bullying in his youth; he didn't even start making serious friends until high-school and the rest of the group is likely the people he played with or was invited to play with.  He came from a broken home with a drug-using mother that'd nearly forced family into being bankrupt; a father that was forced to work long-hours to compensate- he had to learn to be self-sufficient. 

His mother, Sabrina; was a nurse that got access to medical pot and decided to give it a shot. Bad idea.

He considers his small circle of friends to be more of a family than anyone he's related to by blood. As they often prove to be more reliable to him than his family is half the time.  They, to him, are worth going out his way to do favors for or to simply try and help them through their own problems- it lets him forget his own for a little while. 

He's also been to various summer camps and spent time with family in the great outdoors before discovering the joy of gaming and as a result still retains experienced knowledge of such things.  This mostly happened before his mother ran into her drug habit and when they weren't movin around so much as a result of his father's work taking him to different places to find the best jobs.  There really isn't much else to say about his history; he wants to forget most of it and move on anyway.

Ons: Large Breasts, Milfs, Being the guy doing an NTR (and not the victim of it.), "Strong" Women, Mild Femdom (Oh the Irony, like what he likes played into what his avatar looks like. haha)
Offs: Watersports, Guro, Scat, BDSM (he doesn't see the point in it.)

Avatar/Player Character Information

Name: Kagero Mitofugi
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Race: Human 
Racial Traits: Gain +1 Feat, has exchanged the "+1 Skill rank/Lvl" for Immunity to Sleep and Paralysis to reflect her bloodline more strongly and has inherited the ability to climb stone/rock faces easily (gaining a climb speed of 20 and a +8 to the skill) (This information is found in the Pathfinder "Advanced Races Guide, Pg 214" and "Bastards of Golarion" on the "back cover")

Link for Class: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/core-classes/sorcerer
Deities worshipped: Undecided, Family worshipped Torag (dwarven god of the forge and battle)
Appearance: Kagero is 5'11"  and about 157lbs with an athletic, physically fit build. In fact; she looks almost as muscular as a man does due to her natural gift of almost superhuman strength and the fact that working as a blacksmith's apprentice tends to make people far stronger than they look, tougher as well. 

She has Onyx-black hair with oddly copper-colored eyes with a skintone similar to that of a new penny.  What alot of people do not see because she covers it with her bangs is the fact she has small copper-scales along her hairline and forehead and along the backs of her fingers as well as the upper lopes of her ears.

Her dragon-heritage, from which her sorcerous powers derive, runs particularly strong in her. This gives her minor physical traits that become more pronounced as she uses her magical powers.
Figure wise she sports a somewhat top-heavy build; with her measurements being approx 39F-26-36.

Personality: Kagero tends more brash and hot-blooded as well as more combative.  Prefering to act first, think later.  She's keenly aware of the fact she defies the norm for mages; being both physically gifted as well as magically empowered.  While she isn't a leader-type personality, she does have the intuition and personal magnetism needed to at least get-by in terms of social graces.  Having tried to downplay her sorcerous powers when they manifested far earlier than normal; she developed a keen abilty to lie and bluff her way past suspicion.

Oddly, she also has a wonderful sense of humor; able to laugh and joke around with the best of them.  As of late; she's using her magical talents for the sake of minor pranks and the like.  She loves the idea of personal freedom and does NOT take well to being ordered around by someone thinking themselves superior to her.  (which usually results in a faceful of acid!). 
Hobbies: She enjoys rock-climbing since she has a natural talent for it and the physique to have little trouble.   She also enjoys outdoorsy stuff like travel and exploration.  Kagero also likes to gamble and play games of chance.
Skills: As stated: Kagero is good at climbing, as a result of her own innate abilities she also knows enough about magic and it's lore as well at it's applications to get by. She can also generally sense when she's being lied  and knows how to lie (quite well for her age).  Kagero also possesses keen senses and is generally aware of her environment as well as able to pick out variations.

Background: Kagero was born in a small mountain village where the primary trade was metalwork, stonemasonry and mining to a normal human family. She has two half-siblings, a brother and a sister; as she was born out of wedlock and as a result is a bastard child. Sired by a smooth-talking adventurer when her mother took a fancy to him while treating the man in the local church.  He has since perished for unknown reasons (to her); leaving her to deal with a half-father that didn't want her around and siblings  that made her feel very uncomfortable.

Despite all that; she had as much of a normal life as she possibly could- trying not to "shame" her step-father and siblings since they were of the "upper"middle-class in their village (as close to nobiity as one could be without an actual title.)  She took to exploring the cliffsides and mountains that the village sat between since it was in a virtual box-canyon in an effort to "stay out of the way." That was until she came across the abandoned lair of a dragon of some sort; which caused her innate magical powers to awaken; blasting the cavern with a wave of magically created acid.  After that point, she regularly snuck up to that cavern after her daily chores and smithing training was completed for the day to practice. 

Up until that point she'd felt powerless to alter the course of life; shunned by her family except her mother and viewed dimly in the eyes of the villagers.   The only bright spot had been when her mother prevailed upon the local blacksmith to accept the girl as an apprentice so that she could at least learn some form of trade. 

However, when she'd grown and matured; Kagero began to attract the attention of the young men of the village and soon grew tired of it.  One day she challenged the so-called "Golden boy" (Named Nathan) of the lot to a game of chance in which she cheated him out of quite a bit of wealth as well as the young man's dignity.  Literally taking the shirt off his back as well as the ornate sword off his belt!  Soon after, she'd heard that the young man was plotting revenge of some sort and decided to take her ill-gotten bounty and flee.  Taking off in the cover of night, climbing up and out of her village and camping in her training cavern before setting off the next day.

She had no real destination in mind; she just wanted to get away from the rumors of a brewing revenge for the humiliation she'd wrought as a result of her underhanded cheating durin the game. 

Ons: Exhibitionism, Sexual Sadism (she likes the idea of inflicting pain in partners)

Offs: No changes from previous entry

Well, you're off to a good start for Hiro, but you're gonna need to add a fair bit more to his history.  I already sent a PM with what I think should help with that.

So....Captain Jack Sparrow without the insanity, I can deal with Fen lol.  I love the idea honestly LS, so welcome aboard.  ;D

I'm torn between Zakar and Raywyn for a starting point for everyone here.  I might go with Raywyn, only because that's where I figure most everyone would have gravitated towards given it's the largest place on the main continent.  Zakar though is more free and loose on its rules and boundaries, and not so....rigid in certain regards.  Hmm.  I'll give it some thought, but I am truly loving everything I've seen already from everyone thus far.  For those that need to add more to your profiles and stuff though, do that and you should be good to go as well.  In any event, I'll be getting the OOC and Character Threads going momentarily, just gonna add someone to the World Building thread.

And yes, before you ask, your Dungeon Master, or Mistress, haven't decided if your DM was a guy or not lol, was a Marvel fan.  :P  Cheers!

Oh! Oh! we get a physical Dungeon Master/Mistress like from the cartoon? Sweeeeeet!

I have a number of the threads up and linked in the first post of this.  I went NC Exotic just to be on the safe side, although I'm not expecting a lot of NC stuff to happen.  It's more just to keep our options open and stuff like that, but this won't be rape happy or anything lol.  Anyway, if you're approved, post your characters in the character thread first and foremost.  I'll get the IC going before too long here, just gotta give my brain a chance to churn out something halfway decent lol.

As of right now, from what I could see at a glance, Landshark is the only one that's really got a fully fleshed out character sheet.  All the rest of you either need to try and add more to your backgrounds in some way, or you're still in the process of creating your characters from scratch.  That's fine, since we're not ready to begin just yet anyway, but as I've said before, I'm gonna be gone come Sunday, and I wanted to get this started before Saturday night at the very least.

Silk will be in charge with minor stuff such as getting people fighting the occasional monsters in the sewers and things like that.  Just to get the acclimated to the world at large as it stands now, if all goes well.  I'll do my best to get things set up for her with the time I got left to do so.  But don't let us do all the work.  :P  Anyway, just wanted to let ya know how things stood at the moment.

Hmm... Barkeep says he has a problem with rats in the root cellar OR we can wonder around outside the gates fighting little jelly monsters....which will level us up faster? :P

Far as I know, we don't have a wizard or sorceress period, so having one of those, (so long as it's not a metagaming annoyance like Orion and his Tiberius Stomrwind from Critical Role,) would be most appreciated.

And to answer your question LS, I love slimes if it's from a game like Dragon Quest or something cutesy like that, but this is more Final Fantasy X or Dragon Age, not cutesy fantasy you'd find from a JRPG lol.  Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance would be another good example of what to expect monster wise, although with a fair bit more humor thrown into the mix than any of them put together.  So while there won't be any cute faced slimes running around, monsters harassing the country side like kobolds, wolves, lizardmen, etc, those will be easy to find for the most part.  Rats in a cellar or basement are also something you can expect to find in the early stages, but later on?  Well....you'll have to wait and see lol.

If you don't hate your overlord Dungeon Master, then we're not doing our jobs right.   >:)

Well borrowing from your analogy.. being a tiefling is like being a mutant.. makes for an interesting teen age experience at the school of magic.

Stealing the story from my PFS Venture Captain.. she hit 16 and got.. demonic.. :D

And I figure Kyle will be more the 'creating type' than the 'abusing type.'. Figure he'd be happy to have his hands back and making things. Working out the backstory.. Star Athlete, blew out his knee.. dad pretty much gives up on him.. he joins the navy.. flight deck accident truly cripples him.. he gets into gaming while in recovery/physical therapy.. makes a good living selling short stories and such..

Treats each character as a 'character building' exercise /

Don't get me wrong, I loved Orion and his Dragonborn sorcerer, but the guy's constant meta-gaming was a truly annoying aspect that turned me off of his character before he finally left the cast for good.  So that's a nice reassurance, to say the least Callie.  ;D  I like your concept though, especially since I'm physically disabled due to a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy, but I live a pretty good life overall.  That's not a defining trait, but just something I deal with.  That said, I can relate is all I'm saying, so I might be a bit more lenient to your flight deck military guy lol.

Lol no worries on that.  Magically created zombies from evil necromancers will be the extent of anything even remotely related to darkspawn, and that'll be without the whole bite you become a zombie yourself nonsense lol.  So no, no darkspawn, but I WILL say that there might be vampires and stuff like that, and if a necromancer can find your body before your allies do, they could bring you back as a soulless corpse to add to their army of undead.  Just thought I'd throw that out there.   >:)
