Due to lack of posts, both through my group (with myself to blame as well) and through the other groups, I will unfortunately have to consider the closing of the Siege of the Society.
For those of you still interested, look to the Recruitment boards for I may very well have a new idea in mind (with a different and quicker paced scenario in mind).

Put simply, yes. Up to what you can do is determined by your GM
Just want to make sure everything's clear on the choices allowed here. You are allowing her to purchase the Pickpocket's Outfit from the Adventurer's Armory and allowing her a Ninja-To. This weapon is to have the exact same stats as a short sword and have secret compartments in the scabbard. However, this scabbard already exists here. Simply add the price of a normal blowgun to it and I'd say it's fair. In the end though, this decision lies with your GM.
As well, what's with the +2 to 2 stats?
As a homemade campaign situated in a small location, deities have not exactly been specified.
Instead, clerics gain domains from their beliefs.
Your heretic inquisitor could be on the run from the Society's dark master though it would make more sense for him to be against the common deities of the realm (unnamed as of now). Nevertheless, it would likely make Bishop Alivanda see you in a not so brilliant light. Caseen would probably take your side though.
Nevertheless, be sure to check with your GM (Chimera) when you make these choices.
Actually you're not that far off. While a complete description of God's Throne is for the moment impossible as Onslaught scouts, both land and air have yet to make it past the major defenses.
What you know of God's Throne so far
By way of magic and who knows what else, walls, fortresses, former towns and pretty much every part of the region was changed to be of use to the Society. Forests began being harvested. Caverns and mountains mined. Settlements turned into walled fortresses. Armed ships began patrolling the waterways and lakes. In short, an entire country became a war machine.
And the former capital of the region is now known as the Crucible, the Society's innermost sanctum. No Onslaught soldier has ever even made it close to reaching it yet, let alone infiltrate its darkened walls and barricades.
Onslaught Harbor rests just at the mouth of God's Throne, bordered by the sea on one side, and God's Throne on the other. With nowhere to run, the Onslaught has nowhere else to go but forward into enemy territory.
As for geographical features, the region is of temperate climate and is a fair mixture of forests, hills, plains, mountain ranges surrounding the region and a few marshes. Some of the peaks of the mountains are almost arctic in climate however, while a high level of geothermic activity heats many of the caverns below.
Who's in charge?
What's our organization?
Why are we fighting against the society?
What can we expect?
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PLAYERS
Finally, the time has come to join the ranks of the Siege! Applications are now closed for all places and all characters are invited to join their respective campaign threads.
For: Mihajlo Velickovic, Alex Martin and Gundahar Brandt, you have been assigned one each to the seperate battalions. See Below please.
As we have 15 potential characters, each battalion will have 5 players instead of the aforementioned 4.
The 3 GMs are Chimera Squadron GM, Phoenix Squadron GM and myself who will finally be in charge of Dragon Squadron GM as well as taking care of the Core Hub.
At the bottom of this post you will find your battalion assignments as well as the link to the discussion page of that campaign thread. As soon as all 5 players have signed in, completed their characters and gotten the approval of their respective GMs, each GM will begin their Campaign.
Rules and Regulations
As well, each GM plays a certain way and not every way is the same. Be advised that your assigned GM will give you the rundown on how he will run his part of the campaign as well as any requests and forms he wishes you to follow.
Nevertheless, I highly recommend that all players return to the first post of this thread to read the rules again there.
All three GMs can answer questions to the best of their ability, but as the creator and lead GM, some questions may best be answered by myself.
Final Battalion Assignations
I wish you all the best and good luck! The Society stands resolute behind their captured region's walls and fortresses. Who knows what vile plots boil and brew? What armies do they amass? Which evil deity assists them in their task? Which battalion will lead the final charge to the innermost sanctum of God's Throne? Play, and we will see!
Matt Limoges, Master of the Society

Everything looks in order for now. I do believe that that image may already be used by another player. If it is, I will ask one of you to change it later on.
For now, welcome to the Siege! We will let you know when everything begins.
EDIT: You've also been tentatively placed in Dragon Battalion.

Would you mind if my character's noble house had some connection to the Society, and the Society's betrayal is what led to their destruction? I think it would be an interesting way to give my character strong motivation for striking against the Society.
Many noble families of Saravelle (the region now controlled by the Society) joined the Society when they formed and some refused and were destroyed. You are free to imagine your backstory.

Perfect, you've been added to the register. Welcome to the Siege!

I would like to apply, but will not have time to write my background until for several more hours.
Unfortunately, all 12 of our character slots are currently occupied. 2 of them are unconfirmed yet so if you wish, you may create your character and if any slots open up, I'll let you know.
We are still missing a GM slot though.
Looks great so far. I believe you've already been added to the register so that's it then.
currently in the process of hiring on our second Assistant (Jarred Henninger)
- Xzaral's Gunslinger
- imimrtl (unconfirmed character)
That leaves one open GM slot, and one open Player slot.

While an Oracle has already been enlisted, an oracle of a different focus than life would be fine as are magi and witches. Let me know when you make your decision.
I believe I accidentally skipped your post my friend. My apologies. The Google Document will be finalized when everyone is chosen and the campaign begins at it is only the basic homebrew rules and posting policies as well as the gazetteer of discovered locations.
On the other hand, your character concept is great, so welcome to the register!
I don't want to spoil too much but we're also all GMs here who can fit in player characters into the storyline. And yes, there are most definitely siege weapons. Though the degree of how often you'll be using them is to be determined, there's plenty of ways to include them.
Green light and welcome to the register.
