I will be running the Starfinder Society scenario The First Mandate as part of Play by Post Game Day VII as part of Session 2.
I will be taking players in the order they sign up provided they create a profile within a few days of signing up. If you are using one of the pre-generated characters, there are already BB Code copies you can just cut and paste into your profile.
I generally expect players to check in a few days before the game starts. This gives me time to find a replacement if someone doesn’t show.
Once I have a Google Slide document up, I will ask you to request edit permissions. I do not like allowing open edit permissions.
I would like to put my name into the hat. I am new to SFS and I have made 2 characters to play , both are 1st level.
And I am newer to PBP, so what are you talking about: "Once I have a Google Slide document up, I will ask you to request edit permissions. I do not like allowing open edit permissions." ? I am not sure what this is.
I use Google Slides for all of the maps. In order to be able to move your avatar on the map, you need permission to edit the maps. This basically consists of following the link to the Google Slide, and once there you request edit permission.
Google Slides can run in a web browser. If you use a tablet or smart phone, there may also be an applet you can use. I do many of my posts from my iPad, but for creating the original slides and some other tasks I will use my laptop.
Since you are new to Play by Post, you may want to read some of the various guides that talk about the basics of Play by Post. One that many people find useful is Painlord’s Guide to Play by Post. It will introduce many of the conventions used in Play by Post.
I don’t mind helping people new to the game or Play by Post.
I would encourage you to ask when you have questions. I will do my best to answer them.

As an Operative(Explorer) you get skill focus in Survival and Culture, not Stealth. You could take Skill Focus in Stealth as one of your regular feats, but your Operative’s Specialization just gives it in the two skills listed under Explorer.
You don’t get Ever vigilant until 5th level.
Armor has everything a space suit has, you may want to dump the space suit in favor of Stationwear, flight suit since that can withstand combat.
Your numbers for the skills don’t look right. To pick three:
Survival 1 rank +3 class +0 Wis +3 Skill Focus = +7 or +11 for Trick Attack
Acrobatics 0 ranks? +4 Dex +1 Operatives Edge = +5
Physical Science can’t be used untrained.
Note that since Operative’s Edge and Skill Focus are both Insight bonuses, they don’t add together— you take the highest one.
On Seven of Eleven,
You don’t have enough skills, you should have 8. This may be part of not being done yet.
You don’t make it clear if your are an Exo-Cortex or Drone mechanic. Since you don’t have any mention of a drone, I would guess Exo-Cortex.
Custom Rig says:
While using this rig, you always count as having the appropriate tool or basic kit for any Computers or Engineering skill check you attempt.
That means you don’t need to buy either of Toolkit- Engineering or Toolkit- Hacking (computer).
On the other hand, you may want to buy trapsmith's tools (provides a +4 bonus to Engineering or Mysticism checks to arm or disarm traps). The Custom Rig wouldn’t give you the +4 bonus.
Let me know if you need any help. I’ve built both an Operative and a Drone Mechanic, plus read through Exo-Cortex a number of times while trying to decide on my mechanic.

@Clive & Seven,
Go ahead and dot & delete in gameplay.
Since you aren’t that familiar with PbP Buckshot Bob, here is a quick explanation of what that means and why it is done.
Creating a post in gameplay (dotting) and then deleting it will cause the game to show up in your campaigns whichout having each campaign start with what is basically several empty posts. It will also cause the alias you posted with to show up under the campaign name. Having the campaign show up on your campaigns list makes it a lot easier to see when there are new posts.
You might want to buy some equipment. :)
I will contact you later via PM about some of the details on your character.
So far in the group we have:
- Vandor Draak, human Envoy 2.
- Chikasa “Chik-Chik”, ysoki Technomancer
- Elektra Globes, human Envoy
- Clive Doles, human Mechanic with drone
- Seven of Eleven, android Mechanic with Exo-Cortex
I believe that is everyone who has applied so far. We still have room for one more.
