You know, I'd never heard of Night of the Lepus until a coworker at the library mentioned it a few months back.
I think several adventuring companies in Forgotten Realms (Knights of Eveningstar/Myth Drannor and Company of Crazed Venturers) are former PCs. The way I understand it, several of the Paizo staff's characters made it into APs, and I think include a couple of iconics. So in theory your PC could end up in a written supplement (probably not a novel though).
I agree though, R.A. Salvatore's novels have been crap for at least a decade. The last ones I enjoyed were Siege of Darkness and its post-Dark Elf Trilogy sequels.
In our tabletop mythic game, one player is playing a drow female on the surface of Golarion. I partially blame Salvatore for making non-evil drow PCs "cool"--I hate Drizzt so much.
Honestly I love high-level campaigns, even in PFRPG. It just requires more thought, and often the focus of the campaign shifts away from combat.
I really want to use the Mythic rules as PFRPG's 'epic' rules, but so far my tabletop GM seems convinced that they are best used before then. Mind you, so far the mythic campaign (currently level 4/tier 2) we're in feels incredibly overpowered to me...which is probably a great deal why I think it's better to use the mythic tiers as tacked-on ad hoc levels 21-30.

It's said that the US is only 50 years behind England, so give it a few decades and you'll see it in the US too. (Actually, I'm sure that happens at some US festivals anyway...and the 50-year stat is primarily related to religious affiliation/attendance, but still.)
Hey, when Ansha gets it in her head to do something, she's so single-minded (and tunnel-visioned) it's scary!
he issue here is the implications behind the inverted comma'd 'professionals' (which implies that the party is not)
Jakob has indicated that if it were not being driven by meta-game concerns, IC he would prefer to leave it to Morvius' experts--pretty sure that's what Akirra was referencing by "professionals." If anyone implied that the party was not...well, Akirra wasn't the first one to do it. ;P
Ansha does what she can get away with without obviously harming her Umkhaya, more or less. ;P As I recall, she was the one who primarily interacted with the ceustodaemon upstairs too...and it was kind of blocking their way.
Similarly, Akirra and the fountain are the two points of interest in the area now that the Umkhaya are trapped in here. She's leery of magical fountains, so she'll try that after she awakens the dude who has been sleeping for millenia.
I think mostly we've learned that arguing with Ansha avails nothing. What Ansha wants, Ansha gets.
Now that we've established this, I want a pony. And I like to think that Ansha has absolved you all of OOC responsibility for acting out-of-character by throwing the switch before anyone can stop her. ;P
Occasional drama aside, I'm still loving this campaign. Even the IC drama is often fun, though we need to probably keep in mind OOC that our characters have been through a lot together, and thus there should be more camaraderie than we sometimes show IC.
Also, I think it was perfectly IC for Ansha to experiment on Akirra, and then impulsively throw the switch to awaken him when her first idea didn't work.
