I am re-opening recruitment for this game, we've had a couple of dropouts so I'd like two or three more people.
Warning it advance: as it turns out, the pace for this game has been very slow. On my end it's been first finishing up school then moving to start a new job means that I usually try to post twice a week, sometimes only once a week. If you're okay with that, then I welcome your apps.
Current cast of characters is: Wayland Egorious, a human Diviner from Sargava, a researcher of Thassilon who wishes to join the Pathfinder Society; Trig Fanabarellalisa, a gnome Shaman who has spent much of her life working as a physician for the Sczarni and now seeks her own path in life after meeting her spirit animal, a cockroach named Cal; and Edamm Osvett, a human Hunter from Ustalav and other places, adopted into a Varisian tribe and making her keep as a scout, alongside her animal companion, a black leopard named Ponok.
Players just got to level 2 and have completed the events in the Glassworks. I'll put a soft deadline for application on Sunday, August 11th.

Dotting!Are there any limitations on materials, classes and races?
Is there anything you don't want to be submitted?
First party materials only, I'm going to say no monstrous races and no kasathas.
I see you have a hunter. My character here is a Storm Druid. Would that be OK?
I'll take the character into consideration, but bear in mind that not only is there the hunter, who is more rogueish, but there is also both our Shaman who gets all the best spells on the Druid list as well as the Wizard, which doesn't leave a lot of room in the party makeup for a primarily casting Druid. You'll need to have a very good writeup for character history, etc.
Characters don't have to be already at 2nd level, if you're picked you can level your character up then.
Okay -- it's going to be Friday or Saturday before I have an alias ready to go. That said, though, I do have a very solid idea of what I'll be submitting. I hope this sounds like a fun character for the group:
I'd like to play a Syrus Terrigan alias, actually -- a dual-gladius-wielding slayer who has a deep-seated hatred of all things goblinoid, lately departed from the Nirmathas-Molthune (am I recalling that name properly?) border skirmishes. He was recently outed as a double agent, serving as a freelance scout/informant for both sides of that conflict, and now has a price on his head with both groups. I want to take the Outlander (Exile), Bruising Intellect, and Light Sleeper traits with the Impatient drawback. I'll probably aim to do a bit of multiclassing to get sneak attack high enough to go for Dastardly Finish at some point, but mostly I'll be aiming for fast-attack effectiveness -- not *quite* a front-liner, but more than willing to mix it up in combat.

I'm working on a half-orc ranger fortune finder/trapper who was raised by Humans, traveled to Magnimar and got involved in Serpent racing. Word began to trickle in about giants threatening the fringes of society so he decided to travel north and see if he could lend a hand against the brutes.
The build is a two weapon fighter. The archetypes provide half favored enemy bonuses against other creatures, gives trapfinding and disable device as a class skill. Replaces spells with traps. My intent is to try and cover some of the rogue niche while providing decent offense.
For your consideration
Half-orc Ranger Fortune Finder/Trapper 2
Kul'Moran was of course the result of an orc raid on a border town. Luckily, the people did not hold the assault against the growing child and so he was born to a human family. They treated him like their other children. He grew up knowing his share of bullying and mistreatment by some but all in all his was a good life. He worked with his father and brothers as trappers and occasional bounty hunters. The only things missing for Kul were fortune and glory, something his brothers and he dreamed of. Then the giants came.
Were they then as skilled at fighting giants as they had grown in taking down men or beaver. Alas, they were not. The rest of the town faired little better. In the fight, his little brother, Garen, was killed. They began to train to fight giants after that but things were never the same. Garen was the life of the family and everyone was on edge. This so disrupted the family harmony that Kul decided he needed to get away. He chose life on the road and headed for Magnimar.
In Magnimar he leaned of Serpent Running and began training and competing. When rumors started coming in of giants on the move in the hinterlands, Kul packed up. The next morning he caught a ride with a small caravan headed north to Sandpoint, nearly a frontier town itself. Perhaps he'd have a chance to remove a few giants from the land while he was there.

Since it turns out I'm going to be quite busy this weekend with family coming in from out of town, I will be extending the recruitment period by a day in case there are any other questions. It now ends Monday August 12th at 11:59 PM.
If recruitment is extended, would love to try my hand at a Warpriest of Desna/Knife Master Rogue (no traps).
Focus on short ranged starknife attacks, 20-30 feet. And, flanking starknife melee (+1d8 sneak stab).
Weapon damage starts at 1d6 and increases with Warpriest levels.
Would also like to go with Way of the Shooting Star (Desnan divine Fighting technique) and Startoss style tree...
