If this is a SYSTEM game, I'm game I love DnD.

Hummm, Half-Goddess tends to have a diety made at them so nope. So I will go for a human, hailing from Lesvos after being at Sapphos Academy, a bard likely wouldn't exist so go for a rogue that focuses on performing and fighting. As a rogue with the dropping of the backstab skills for fighter bonus ranks. She will be Spartan or perhaps Minoan, both had strong roles for women the latter might be more fitting.

So since I asked cleric, I'd be the high priestess in training thing you spoke of, Sir?

Classes:  The classes in this setting are somewhat same with the DnD classes but with many differences. For example, the ranger has the same abilities as the typical, DnD ranger but in Greek mythology is more like a hunter. Anyways i will explain further, saying about each class that has differences from the DnD ones.

Ranger: As stated above, the ranger is a hunter, adept on survival and hunting animals. Unlike the DnD ranger, the hunter, as i’m about to call the class from now on, cannot cast spells on plants or based on nature spells but only spells on animals and animal based spells. The weapon experties are, short sword, spear, bow and daggers.

Druid: The Druid is about the same with the DnD druid, same spells, same attributes  and same abilities. The Druid draws spells directly from Gaia, the Mother Earth and not from the Gods, although he must be humble towards them and respect them, since the Gods are above all beings.

Priest: The most respectfull class and highest state in ancient Greece, the priest can be the cornerstone in a play. Advisor, warrior, spellcaster, healer, based on the God he/she chooses to worship, the priest is the most helpfull class. Priests in ancient mythical Greece are the most common spellcasters, since mages were worshiping Hecate, an evil deity of magic. The spells a priest can cast are based on the God he/she worships and prieches, meaning that every god offers the spells, based on His/Her portfolio.

Mages: Mages are mostly withes. Potion, alchemy, hexes and reading signs on dead animals are the common things that mages can do. To be more specific a mage, is like a medium with curses and reading scrolls. Like stated above, mages worship Hecate, the evil underwold deity of magic, so most of them were evil. But that doesn’t mean a character must be evil to play a mage.

Rogues: Rogues believe to the god Hermes and have the same abilities as the DnD rogue. Rogues dwel mostly in large cities and fairs to find more victims to steal from. But also beware a priest of Hermes because is like having a rogue with spells. :)

Defiler: A custom class that was created by us. A defiler is a person that swears to kill a god by any means. It's like a prestige class in DnD so a character must fullfill some requierments to seek revenge and  being a defiler has its goods and bads. Good is because the enemy god of your enemy god is your friend so he/she will help you to your quest, the bad is that the god that you want to kill will make your life miserable.

Anyways....i hope this will help you to create your characters. They were taken from the old RP i created about Greek Mythology although it was a freeform.

And has someone else decided they want to play the 'basher' role? Or does it really matter?

Can someone give me a rundown of what we have so far? I'm considering a Druid, though if I can help balance us in any way...

Only you that I remember. Anyway, I don't see the GM asking us to fill all roles with precisely one character, so...
And equipment is going to be bought with money, but no magical items unless you persuade the GM it's logical to have them - it was somewhere in the thread.

this will be an epic journey actually. start out with the PCs already knowing each other from their childhood. they're going to each have their own destiny, but interwoven with each others. we'll at least need someone to play a female of royal blood, a heroic warrior, and a high priestess in training.

I was thinking that maybe I'd be game to play a female of royal blood? If it's not taken.... or mayhaps if it is, then sisters? Twin sisters would be entertaining.

As for a class, well, the one class that I'd love to play from 3.5 that would fit into just about any possible setting would be Psion, likely Psion(Telepath) or Psion(Egoist). But then, that's still up to the DM? Patriot?

the DMG has a table of relative wealth based on level. I can't remember the page though.

I'm not sure how you'd go about half-gods, but my thought/idea was to go with an Aasimar, or half celestial servant.... which feels possible, given that the gods themselves were pretty damned promiscuous with mortal women?

Not to mention, I'm sure half-gods would most assuredly have an ECL adjustment of far more than +3(which would make a level 1 character). An Aasimar has an ECL adjustment of +1.

*whimpers* 

So this has been quite an exercise in futility.  First, I made a character unsuited to Greek myth. 

Then, I was unable to get either Devil strike or Blaze to tell me some interpersonal dynamic that i might at least try to fulfill ahead of time.  (perhaps that's only fair since they've never gamed with me before.) 

I guess it's time to do things the old fashioned way and trust in the dice and the power gaming.  Is there a party roll we still need filled?  .

It's on p.135.
Relative wealth level for 4th level 5,400 gp, average.

I'm thinking of playing daughter of a nymph. I believe that in D&D terms, I could just use the half-elf racial package. But if the GM has a more suitable suggestion, I'd be glad to hear it.

There is probably a reason for that...
I usually coordinate with the whole team. It makes the game more logical, in my opinion. For now we don't know who will be playing what, so let's first see what kind of a group will come out of this, and then we can coordinate interpersonal dynamics.

Yeah, it's generally the best idea.

Just felt i should mention that the Pm didn't go to every player because I'm incompetent with pms, not because i was deliberately excluding people.  Sorry.

In order to have s little bit of structure and coordination, I've made a list of everyone that has shown interest in the game, and the ideas that they have for a personal character.

Sonja - the princess role if no one has taken it, probably roll it as a Cleric
Lavender - I'd be the high priestess in training thing
Scriptophile - female warrior-type, maybe a temple servant to Athena.
Pyro – hasn't decided
Devilstrike - a 'basher' type
schnookums - hasn't decided
Muse - Female Warrior.   *Raises hand, sort of"  Huntress of Artmeis here.
RubySlippers - I will go for a human, hailing from Lesvos after being at Sapphos Academy, a bard likely wouldn't exist so go for a rogue that focuses on performing and fighting. As a rogue with the dropping of the backstab skills for fighter bonus ranks. She will be Spartan or perhaps Minoan, both had strong roles for women the latter might be more fitting.
Akiko - female of royal blood, half-gods, but my thought/idea was to go with an Aasimar, or half celestial servant
bluejay - hasn't decided
Blaze - daughter of a nymph
