Would you be able to give me a quick run-down of how exactly a forum based system-game works? I cannot really grasp it, to be honest.

It really is no different then playing at a table top game.     Not for the over all mechanics. 

Play by post in a forum based system is slower then sitting around a table with friends.   Instead of describing scenes verbally or drawing details on a map.   More description is needed.    Especially with detail, such as place in party.  By writing out ones actions.  Over all it is the slowness that does take time to get use to.  However,  the benefit of a forum based game unlike playing at a java chat or IRC channel or just at table at home.  Is allows people to play together at different times.   To create a on going adventure.

Oh and instead of using dice,  a dice roller is used to generate dice rolls for the core mechanics of the game play.     

Anyways hope this clears it up some.   Perhaps should have waited when not so tired to try and explain.

Would you handle all the rolls? One of the games I observed had the players stating their intended action, and the DM actually punching in the numbers in to the dice roller and posting the results.

For the most part players will roll there own dice.    With such exceptions as looking for as merely passing a secret door  (an elf)  or disarming a trap as examples.   Of course I will make such known in game as we go along. 

So far the cast;

dnd3edm1  -  Elven bard,   human side down in luck burger flipper individual.

Callie Del Noire -  Aasimar bloodline sorceress,  a gambler as human.

Partial tentative commitment;

slavenumber689 -  a bard

lorcan -  half orc 

Phantasmatical -  brainstorming a concept

Ryuka Tana  -  ?

Marlow -   ?

~~~~

Also with the question of  cross gender playing.  That is fine,  and ultimately in the hands of the entire cast.    Which  if taken a step farther in concepts.   A player could have a dude in the real world,  example some delivery truck driver.  But crossing over he becomes a she a fair elven maiden or perhaps just a human damsel.  Which could lead to some interesting role play situations and events.

Do you allow alternate core class builds, for specific instance I have in mind Monk of The Lotus. If so I would do an elven monk of the lotus, toying with the human idea that she used to get into a lot of fights when she was in high school and as a teenager until something finally showed her violence wasn't the answer to everything.

I wasn't expecting to be the only guy with two (three for the DM) girls... what's with that?  The setting, I find, is rife with possibility...

If talking about eventually going into the prestige class then yes.    If it is a class writeup.   Do you have a link.

Should you need another able body and somebody quite familiar with pathfinder. I Have been dying to play an Inquisitor. Perhaps in the real world he is a private investigator...or a forensic scientist.

Thanks for some reason the link I had kept giving me 3rd party prestige classes,  been removed.    I didn't bother to go back to monk and look lol.   A blonde moment for me.   

So the monk is a go.

An as for your character idea.  Sure on the base class of an inquisitor, sounds interesting with the concept.

Here is a basic sheet will be updating it when I wake up to include name picture and a few other things.

http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=263239

So as for a few of the starting things we would normal get like gold and language. I know it said at beginning starting gold but will we actually have anything coming newly into the world. Also will we even know our racial languages as we change or will we have to learn them.

Thank you Shadowfox,  character looks good. 

I like the questions and they raise some interesting possibilities.   I can go either way with how the group deals with the questions posed.   At first thought,  I was going to offer up the option.   But then in thinking it over.    I have decided to go with this;

The inherent magic of the land of Never never land  imparts the character with their respective knowledge of racial languages.   An some even know more then their own racial languages.     As well when the characters cross the barrier.   At first time the characters gain those items purchased in character build.  And each new item acquired  in adventuring will appear when they cross back over in going back and forth between the two worlds.   Likewise in returning to the mundane world of the real world  the characters gear disappears.   Although the racial knowledge of the various languages magically gifted when first cross over, the individual does not lose That knowledge remains when returning to the real world.   

The reason for going with this option.   Is simply I want to keep the party favor and not have the campaign break down into  five or six separate individual threads as the players go about learning languages and such.

Notes on crossing between worlds.    There are two ways to cross over  between worlds.    One is a fairy leads you across the barrier.   For they are the only known ones that can cross over between worlds.      The other way is there will be artifacts in both worlds that the party will learn about.   That allow characters to cross between the two worlds.   

On such skills as Knowledges Geography,   Nobility.   Can only be taken after character creation.    Knowledges skills such as arcane, religion  are allowed at creation as the magic of the realm imparts this with crossing over the first time.  If the character was predisposed to have such knowledges.

Ok another question does appearance have to be tied in with charisma, or can charisma just be social skills and bearing. With a buy in system instead of rolls sometimes charisma is not going to be the priority but I hope that dosen't mean we have to sacrifice character beauty for it.

I have never tied charisma to beauty alone.   A low charisma character can be breath taking beautiful.    Yet her or his personality could make him an absolute boor.   Or perhaps that person has a general bad body odor that just makes people shy away from them.   

So  to answer your question  a low charisma is not tied to looks.

Hello my friend Shadowfox show this to me and I am very much interested, here is my sheet so far. I went with a drow hopefully they are ok to play if not let me know. But since I saw an Aasimar I didn't think it would be a problem. i didn't go Noble not sure if that would be allowed. Anyway she is a Rogue going for shadow dancer, working up a story and such for her as I go. Hopefully she is ok so far, i will check back in a bit. Looking forward to this.

If I had a little more time in life, I'd play a pimply-faced teenage social reject with some anger management issues.  Once he crossed over into the alternate world, he would see it as a place he could live out his fantasies.  He would end up trending toward evil as he sought revenge for those years of being called nerd, geek, four-eyes, etc.
