So, my Council of Thieves PbP is off and running successfully, and I find that I have the time and interest to launch a second Adventure Path game. But I'm having a hard time choosing which of the other four completed paths I'd like to run. So, I thought I'd open a discussion and see if there's a strong concensus to play in one more than the others.
Rise of the Runelords
Curse of the Crimson Throne
Legacy of Fire
Prospective players: Would you be interested in playing in a game based on one of these APs? Make your voice heard! If interested, you could rank them in order of preference, or vote only for one (or more than one). Consider this an informal survey of interest. (Or, if you'd be interested in playing in any of the above, feel free to say that too!)
In anticipation of likely questions, let me add that the game would be played using PFRPG rules, and that player selection would be based on submission of a character concept, not on a first-come first-served basis.
All right, let's hear from you.
I'd be interested in playing any of the above. These two characters are outlines for the PCs I'd like to play.
Bors No-Name, Human Fighter
Bors is a human lowlife, which grew up in the slums of Absolom, together with his three little sisters and mother. After his father, a small shop owner, got involved in a feud and was killed, the shop was burnt and the family had no money for repairs. In order to help his family, Bors had to work for whoever paid well, and he wasn't picky. Gang fights and violence were his life as a teenager, which he managed to pass alive due to his strength and street-savvy skills. The heavy fighting wasn't without a price though- Bors is heavily scarred, both physically and psychologically - he's a rough type of fellow. Changing sides came easily to him so long as the coin kept flowing in. As time went by, he earned enough for dowries for his sisters, so they could marry decent men around him, while his mother died of sickness. In the past few months, Bors is searching for himself and for a greater ideal or something he could feel a part of. The Pathfinder Society could be such a thing, which is why he decided to join and try one of these so called missions.
Triss Valenastranna, Elven Wizard
Most of Triss' early years were ones of rich, spoiled, elvish children. Although she could have had anything she would ask for, from the day she started learning to read, she always asked for books, especially the fairy-tale books, which she loved best. As time passed, she developed a keen interest in magic, which her parents did their best to foster. Triss received the best tutoring in the area, learning for whole days at her parents' estate.
Although learning, experimenting and magic delighted her, it wasn't enough to hold her attention for long, and an urge for exploration rose up in her. Her father's connections with the Pathfinder Society helped her get her first mission, which she was very excited to begin.
Triss was never one to mingle with "ordinary people", and she never really thought about it. Her world is still one based mainly on the fairy-tales of her childhood, which aren't exactly close to reality. Other than that she has a sense of humor, which doesn't seem to be appreciated by others.
I'd actually love to have a chance to play in another AP.
My personal preference in order would be:
1) Rise of the Runelords
2) Legacy of Fire
3) Curse of the Crimson Throne
4) Second Darkness
Of course, 1-3 are all fairly neck and neck and would probably come in a different order based on day of the week, and SD a distant 4th. SD seemed to start strong, but the story fell apart later IMO.

I'm partial to any of them, but in order:
1) Rise of the Runelords - tried this PBP and haven't finished it yet.
2) Second Darkness - Very curious about this one, but never played it.
3) Curse of the Crimson Throne - Tried this one, haven't finished it; not necessarily a fan of the back half.
4) Legacy of Fire - This one starts interesting to me.
Good luck in making a decision.
I would love to play in any of these. If I had to pick an order, it would be:
1)Legacy of Fire - Never played this one
2)Second Darkness - Started this one, but then GM disappeared
3)Curse of the Crimson Throne - Same as SD
4)Rise of the Ruinlords - Got part way through Book 1, then GM had to stop GMing due to lack of time.
I'd like to play in any of those, but Rise of the Runelords or Legacy of Fire would rank slightly higher than the other two.
My character would depend on the AP, but I've got a character left over from a Legacy of Fire game that fell through. (needs updating from the beta rules though.)
When you've made your choice about which AP, can you let us know more about the context so we can post character concepts accordingly ?
I absolutely will! In fact, I'll set up a separate recruitment thread in a few days. When that happens, I'll be sure to post a link here, so no one misses it.
Not sure if I'm interested in joining another game at the moment, but disregarding that, I would vote primarily for Curse of the Crimson Throne, given that it's just awesome. I have admittedly read that one, and RotRL, so that colors my perceptions somewhat. If Second Darkness is somehow chosen, I'd be more interested in playing. I'm already in a Legacy of Fire game, so I'd be less likely to offer a concept should that be chosen.
