Ok, so Giuseppe here. I reworked this character. He's now a swashbuckler, but will take all the following levels in investigator. I'm in the process of writing down his background now (being a non native speaker, that takes me a little more than normal, I suppose).
I'm in the same spot as Giuseppe, character is done; still need to finish the background (as switch to cleric changes what I was planning). Another day or two and I should be done and ready to go with that.
I'm just waiting to know what people are playing and who I'm going to be guarding/related to so I can write up the fluff and decide between unchained monk and the flowing monk.
Do we need more damage output or defensive ability? If whoever I'm guarding puts out good damage then I'll go with the flowing monk, otherwise I'll go with the unchained for the balance.
Sejiri won't be doing much damage at first level unless he is flanking, but his AC will be good and eventually his saves will be as well. I'm starting to think he isn't going to be able to remain useful unless I optimize his ability scores more, although I'm hoping I don't have to do that. Them high level adventures can be pretty deadly, though.
I tend to optimize my characters, but I do so less in online play and try to always explain the deficiency for the sake of roleplaying, so it isn't just simple min-maxing.
The cleric is healing and fire domain. So while I'll ranged touch attack or DC save the baddies till the cows come home, she won't be getting the scimitar out much if at all.
Any updates? If I don't have an appropriate charge to defend I'll just rework my monk to be a bit different. He'll still be a front liner monk but I'll adjust my feats and traits and skills somewhat I guess.
Iuni Al-Ahdal was raise as a slave girl with her family of slaves in the Windswept Wastes of Casmaron. Her lord owner to one of the few settled keeps in the Wastes, the young Iuni became so mad at the cruel lord, that she burned him alive in his bed one night. So scared and ashamed she ran away into the desert for a couple of days. When she realized, she would not be able to survive the harsh terrain much longer she returned to face her doom. When she arrived at the keep, she found no one alive, it seems a nearby nomadic horse tribe hear of the death of the lord and took advantage of the situation by sacking the keep; taking any survivors along as slaves for themselves. She spent several months making due alone in the ruin of the keep when a traveling cleric of Sarenrae, happened upon the ruin, Zeshkitan Pllumm, also a Pathfinder, found the now half-wild child, and began to show her the way of the Dawnflower.
• Why did you join the Society?
Iuni joined the Pathfinder Society as a way to bring the message of the Dawnflower to world as Pathfinders are sent all over the world, following in the footsteps of her mentor Zeshkitan Pllumm.
• What is your life like outside of adventuring?
Iuni has a passion proselytizing to anyone that will hear, loud and pushy would best describe her approach, she rarely takes a break from this calling even when not on an official mission from the PFS.
• List two prejudices that you have.
Iuni has a disdain for slavers naturally. But also has little tolerance for anyone who runs away from danger, at times driving her to reckless behavior.
• Describe a memory that you still regret.
Iuni has never regret killing the slaver lord, but regrets the outcome that came from it; and also deeply regrets running away. She somehow feels like if she had stayed it would have all been okay.
• Tell two stories about people you have wronged in the past, but in one of them you thought you were in the right.
Well one was the slaver lord, obviously killing him was wrong, but he was so cruel and dreadful that he deserved it.
The other is her former mentor Pllumm, over the years all he had seen had lead him to take up the drink, and as the years went on he only increased his drinking until he basically did nothing but get drunk and wallow in misery; seeming to have lost the hope of the Dawnflower. Iuni had joined the PFS by now, and although she feels she should have done more to help the man that gave her so much; she abandoned him. She feels the guilt of it everyday.
Overall, Iuni is a zealot for Sarenrae; but her ifrit nature causes her to be unpredictable at times. Her faith in the Dawnflower is demonstrated in her flowers, even if her action are sometimes contrary to the teaching she whole-heartily believes in.

Ok, so I managed to finally write down a small background for Arthur, answering the questions asked from the GM in the first page of this Discussion Thread. I plan to add more information in the future, but for now I wanted to keep the pace with the others.
How set are we all on the higher tier scenarios?
I've got an opportunity to play one of them :-)
Even if we get through one scenario a month (which is possible, but unlikely), it's going to be like almost two years before we touch level 7, and there will be a host of new high level content open up in that time.
Okay, I finally found my planning sheet for Sejiri I made a while ago and it turns out he starts as a paladin and then branches into ninja. Shouldn't change his build much, especially at this level, but will rework him and enter Chronicle info shortly. Just less skills to start.
Edit: Some time ago a session was incorrectly reported in saying Sejiri played it and not the character that did. Just in case it says he has a scenario under his belt, he actually does not.
