Level: 1d3 ⇒ 2
Stat: 4d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 2, 5) = 12
As for a concept, I am really in a piratey mood at the moment and I feel it might fit the location. Are you familiar with the Freebooter Ranger Archetype? I think that is where I'll start as I develop this idea.
We have a rather nice but limited spell list so we may need to split up who takes what spells so we all don't end up with the same 4 spells. Mage Armor of course is nice but hardly necessary for us all for example. Enlarge person and Infernal healing are both nice but have full round casting times and probally should be divided between two people(limited spells per day and all.)
1d4 - 1 ⇒ (3) - 1 = 2
Yep a little late to grab em but I'll pick them up too.
I changed my mind and decided to go Heel.
Name: Xem, The Cursed One
Move up to the opponent, Sweep the legs(Trip), finish with a painful attack to their face(Unarmed Strike, usually with stunning or other ability on it).
He wears simply a ripped and torn black gi with a black bandana covering his head. His body shows signs of heavy scarring from both combat and self infliction.
Xem murdered his brother when they were children when he grew jealous of the attention their father showed to the elder sibling. He lured his brother to a graveyard on a dare and clubbed him to death with a human leg bone. He covered the body with grave dirt to hide it but his actions had been witnessed by Fumeiyoshi, the Lord of Envy. He whispered to the boy promises of great glory and things to come if he would sacrifice more to him, and Xem having not even cleaned the blood of his brother from his hands swore himself to the evil god.
His brothers disappearance saddened his family greatly but Xem waited and grew into a young man before he finally could wait no more. The whispers had made him strong, told him how to draw on the 'blessing' of the god and his own sociopathic nature had made him a skilled martial artist over the years. Murdering his parents and burying them in the graveyard was the final step in his path to the darkness. He left his home and joined a band of bandits and rebels, the only company a cursed and dishonored person as himself felt at home among.
However it was only a matter of time before they were captured by the army and the most promising sold as fighters in the grand arena, with any hope of reclaiming their freedom. For even a monster such as himself could become a god in the arena...
Here is the current party makeup:
However due to the high difficulty of the game the person we lost was a fighter as well and was truly a lifesaver in many encounters where we were heavily outnumbered by enemies. Some of the submissions so far have been magus, fighter, cavalier, etc. But whatever you bring to the table make sure you can back it up with a lot of knowledge about how your character will grow over 20+ levels. Also the strong character builds are not something to be ashamed of, we do RP of course but having a strong build that keeps the party alive is much appreciated(and necessary!).
This is a HARD game. I thought I'd throw that out first to weed out anyone looking for just a casual game. The DM is very good at his job of entertaining and running combats that challenge the group of 7 PCs. We recently lost a player due to the lateness of the game(11:30 pm EST start) and have been seeking someone able to fill the large shoes he left behind(a frontline fighter). This game has been running for over a year now and please only respond if you can commit long term.
The party just reached level 10 but in the last battle 6/7 PCs(including self) were killed fighting a nasty boss slightly above our level nearly leading to a tpk. The group however prevailed and PC death does happen when fighting Boss monsters or high challenge quests. There is a lot of information to give about the campaign itself but I'd rather give it to serious candidates.
Its a 30 PB, Paizo only(3rd party material by request but often no) Character creation. Since it is a campaign in progress you'd replace the PC that left rather then join the group(story reasons). Thus 400 gp mundane equipment the rest randomly rolled or given from the party treasury for starting equipment. You will also gain 2 special abilities story related based on your class that increase as you level but only the DM has that list, we all picked our legacies blind at 1st level. They unlocked at level 7 then at level 10. (Legacy left by the player is named Legacy of Justice)
Please let me know if you are interested and your character you'd play and I will answer questions before the DM reviews the recruits for the best fits. (He may have other groups needing replacements as well as he runs this campaign through the week with many other groups.)
The AP Does not allow Good or Chaotic alignments. All else is fair game however you need to make a character who is willing to work with an evil organization as the entire game depends on your character accepting said organization at a point. DM tells you this upfront so you know what sort of characters will work and which will not.

I'm very sorry, I know I said I'd give it a try but writing my own character's novel is a little more work then I realized. I sat trying to put together an opening post for a while, thinking of doing a flashback or just some exciting adventure scenario with my character being involved, but it still feels like I'm trying to write a book which I don't have ideas for making. I must respectfully to Dogblade withdraw from the game and hope that it is enjoyable for the others.

I look at it as the players are getting a powerful bonus for no levels traded in and vampire requires no gold, crafting feat, or 5th level spells. In my campaign I will probably wave the feats if the players perform the special quest in book III for the Prince. The story quest will effectively reward them with the template if they so choose. I'm sure they'll be spending plenty of other feats on some of the general undead feats anyways.
However I could see a DM using the 5 feat chain if the PCs start off all vampires from the start, basically being bitten and slowly transforming as their powers blossomed.

I have to agree with Korin. Its kinda overwhelming being my own DM, and basicly my sheet I spent all that time making doesn't matter if its just a freeform story based game. I am not sure this is what I was expecting.
I don't know Faerun well enough to make myself a specific narrative/DM my story.
