If you have any questions I'm willing to awnser, and I'm ready to alter most of my stats Apon request
I do this a lot also. A lot of my favorite character quirks I made up on the spot in the middle of playing a character. Sometimes I even discover a major emotion or motivation they have that way.

I remember a character a while back that initially was supposed to be a highly charismatic cleric/wizard Mystic Thurge who was going to be a seductress with alot of charm spells... But she turned more twards the Revenge side of her deity(she was a cleric of Calistra) I remember there was a point where a dragon insulted her, So she blasted the *explitive* with A fireball/flamestrike maximized with a rod of metamagic... It was a white dragon, So a lvl 15 wizard/cleric dropped two flame spells for around 30*6 fire damage on its head and it takes more damage at that point... It can be safely said that Somtimes high level characters are stupidly overpowered
I made this guy for an Iron Gods campaign back when the AP had just come out, but had to leave after we got started for work reasons. Would like to get another opportunity to finish it. Human brawler, Combat roll is frontline fighter. Grapples and punches things. If it can't be grappled and/or punched he might be in trouble. Out of combat, he's good at serving beers and has intimidate, perception, and know Local. You can look at post history for his personality. He's very loud and plays the lout, but also caring and good-hearted.
I try to post twice a day, but I travel for work so the time of day I post tends to vary quite a bit.
I've got an idea to do a human alchemist for the campaign.

At 1st level, an alchemist discovers how to create a mutagen that he can imbibe in order to heighten his physical prowess at the cost of his personality. It takes 1 hour to brew a dose of mutagen, and once brewed, it remains potent until used. An alchemist can only maintain one dose of mutagen at a time—if he brews a second dose, any existing mutagen becomes inert. As with an extract or bomb, a mutagen that is not in an alchemist’s possession becomes inert until an alchemist picks it up again.
When an alchemist brews a mutagen, he selects one physical ability score—either Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. It’s a standard action to drink a mutagen. Upon being imbibed, the mutagen causes the alchemist to grow bulkier and more bestial, granting him a +2 natural armor bonus and a +4 alchemical bonus to the selected ability score for 10 minutes per alchemist level. In addition, while the mutagen is in effect, the alchemist takes a –2 penalty to one of his mental ability scores. If the mutagen enhances his Strength, it applies a penalty to his Intelligence. If it enhances his Dexterity, it applies a penalty to his Wisdom. If it enhances his Constitution, it applies a penalty to his Charisma.
A non-alchemist who drinks a mutagen must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the alchemist’s level + the alchemist’s Intelligence modifier) or become nauseated for 1 hour—a non-alchemist can never gain the benefit of a mutagen, but an alchemist can gain the effects of another alchemist’s mutagen if he drinks it. (Although if the other alchemist creates a different mutagen, the effects of the “stolen” mutagen immediately cease.) The effects of a mutagen do not stack. Whenever an alchemist drinks a mutagen, the effects of any previous mutagen immediately end.
My character will focus on throwing bombs and buffs to her accuracy and ability scores. from afar while being comfortable with close combat if needed. Her mutagen will be based on Strength as a result. Will get Greater and Grand Mutagen along the way.
Unable to hid from such a scandal, her parents placed her in exile, placing her in Numeria. She is given enough money to live comfortably, but that is all the love she received. Wallowing in self-hate, she was met by a man named Khonnir Blaine. The wizard claimed he had a way to help her out. Desperate for any help, she accepted. Through some alchemy, she managed to suppress the worst of her afflictions. The one thing that remains is a streak of pink hair that runs down to the end.
With his guidance, she became rather skilled in the art of alchemy. It was a partnership that continued for a number of years... up until his disappearance. She now hopes to find adventurers willing to felt save her mentor, even if she will have to go out herself to do so.
I have two submissions I would like to make. The first is probably going to be passably similar to a couple of others. I've already seen one. He is still in development as well. As of right now he is a gunslinger (siege engineer) and will progress from level two on up as a Magus (elritch archer, staff magus, hexcrafter) I still may change him from gunslinger to spellslinger. If selected, I will create a profile for Durn. This would also only be my third pbp, one of which I am still a part of, so please forgive any blunders I may make.

You were found in the wilds as a child.
Prerequisites: You may only select this feat at 1st level.
Benefit: Whenever you receive magical healing, you heal an additional 2 points per die rolled. You gain a +2 bonus on all saving throws against death effects. Unfortunately, you also suffer +1 point of damage from cold iron weapons (although you can wield cold iron weapons without significant discomfort).
Blessed Touch +1 healed when using Lay on Hands/Channeling/Cure spells
• Illusion Resistance: Gnomes gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against illusion spells and effects.
• Obsessive: Gnomes receive a +2 racial bonus on a Craft or Profession skill of their choice.
• Weapon Familiarity: Gnomes treat any weapon with the word “gnome” in its name as a martial weapon.
• Low-Light Vision: Gnomes can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
• Master Tinker Gnomes experiment with all manner of mechanical devices. Gnomes with this racial trait gain a +1 bonus on Disable Device and Knowledge (engineering) checks. They are treated as proficient with any weapon they have personally crafted. This racial trait replaces defensive training and hatred.
Vivacious: Some gnomes recover 50% more hit points (minimum 1) whenever they recover hit points from rest. Whenever they are healed of hit point damage by a spell, they heal an additional amount equal to 1/2 the spell’s caster level (minimum 0). The extra healing does not apply to spells that grant fast healing or similar effects. This racial trait replaces gnome magic and keen senses.
Mwk Artisan tools
Donkey w/saddle bags

Zeenquist liked interacting and learning from these priests, but he found even greater joy in speaking to a traveling peddler.
This peddler happened to also be a gnome and he sold all manner of things from all manner of places. His most prized possessions were not of this world he insisted. They are of an alien race that landed in Numeria. This peddler, Aundar, and Zeenquist would spend many an hour tinkering away on these things. When Zeenquist felt himself old enough, he left the priests and traveled with Aundar. They both decided to head to Numeria together. While Aundar would continue to peddle the area, Zeenquist would delve deep to find hidden treasures. The rumor the the happenings in Torch naturally attracted him to that spot.
Not to be a spoil sport but isnt multiple submissions from one player a big nono?
I really have no idea. I've only got into pbp the past month or two. I do see how it could be a no no, however, so I will ask for Durn Gunnit, the gunslinger, to be removed from the running since I've already seen a similar build. Sorry if I have overstepped my bounds. Thank you for keeping me in line.

I'm not certain that this is universal yet. There are times I've seen folks get all crazy about players making a single submission only, but I've also seen many occasions of people making multiple submissions.
In fact, while single submissions is the most common, I actually see multiple submissions come up more often than explicit mentions of limiting to a single submission, and only twice have I seen a gm state in the recruitment op to limit to a single submission.
Therefore, I'd say the overall pbp community is split in this regard.

Please consider Aemin Whitespark to join this AP.
Full mechanics, personality & backstory can be found in his profile (I've also included the backstory spoiler below for easy access).
Looking to fill the support/healer role in the group with a heavy focus on crafting the myriad of magical and technological wonders available in Iron Gods. Potentially, this build can also evolve into arcane boom/support. Ideally, I'd like to see this character become a Mystic Theurge with levels in Wizard (Spellslinger) but I'm willing to adapt as the story and/or party develop.
In the year 4604, Aemin Whitespark’s parents, Igmar and Agna Whitespark, travelled hundreds of miles north of the Five Kings Mountains with a cadre of dwarven artisans and forgemasters to investigate the rumors of a mysterious purple “Torch” blackening the hills of Numeria. Shortly therafter, a small village of not only dwarves but other curious locals arose surrounding the site with the intent of discovering the potential benefits of such an unusual heat source. With the power to melt adamantine and any other metal with ease, this flame could prove to have nearly unlimited crafting applications. Though a highly skilled forgemaster, Igmar was no match for the sudden and unexpected flares that destroyed his family’s newly constructed forge and sent him to an early grave, only months before Aemin was born.
In the decades that followed, Aemin was raised by his surviving mother, Agna and the other dwarven craftsmen that inhabited the burgeoning town now called “Torch”. He became a cleric of Torag just like his mother and learned well the combat strategies and faith of his kin over the years. He also highly excelled in creating quality armor, weapons and mundane goods yet his mother instilled in him a great fear and respect for the powers of the purple flame nearby. She seemed cold-hearted and very strict at times but every now and then a glimmer of kindness shone though. Aemin did his best to obey her and toiled diligently in the forges but he yearned to discover the secrets of the strange skymetals scavenged into town day in and day out.
A full century passed and much remained the same in Torch except for Agna’s failing health. The oppressive influence and heavy taxation of the Technic League did little to improve the quality of life in town either. In 4704, Agna could no longer bear the sight of the violet fires that had stolen her love and decided that it was at long last time to return to her home, to Highhelm. She made little effort in persuading Aemin to come with her and their parting was nearly devoid of sentiment save for the gifting of a Forgemaster’s ring. It belonged to Igmar, perhaps it was the Great Forgefather’s will that he remain to do what his own father could not.
Reinvigorated with purpose, Aemin began to embrace the new technology within his grasp that was once forbidden to him. He tinkered with devices rarely seen in any other part of Golarion and frequented the Foundry Tavern to hear tales of the latest “never before seen” inventions. Every new year brought new discoveries and in 4714, Aemin dared to face his father’s bane, he would finally test his skills against the mighty Torch. The initial results were… passable. The object resembling a gear of sorts was finely forged but non-functional. Regardless, it held great sentiment to Aemin as a token of his first steps beyond his father’s trail and he would undoubtedly have to try again. Unfortunately, when he awoke the next morning, he discovered that the flame that had burned his entire life had suddenly disappeared and things were about to change.

Tarkhital Yevoy, resident of torch and driver would love the chance to find his missing friend Khonnir Baine.
This brawler build is focused on adaptability in melee, using the items and gear found in the AP. Improvised weapons are one aspect but also being able to switch up different feats as needed. Eventually taking levels in the Student of War prestige class. Hopefully others will see it as interesting as I do.
I added a little bit to Kraig's backstory. Nothing amazing, he's a simple man. I do have a couple questions. I apologize for the lateness of them.
1: A chaotic good fighter can take Cayden Cailean's Divine Fighting Technique at level one in exchange for their shield proficiency. Would I be able to give up Kraig's shield proficiency to take the Divine Fighting Technique, since Brawlers count as fighters for feats? If no, not a big deal. If yes, I'll do that and change the Bred for War trait for the Fortified Drinker trait and work towards taking the Drunken Brawler feat at level 5.
1A: How would you run alcohol consumption? Per Paizo's rules for drugs and addiction, three bottles of beer would literally kill the average person. I won't do the drunken brawler thing if that's the case since it's kinda pointless to put a bunch of resources towards something you could only do a couple times a day before dying or falling into a coma.
Hello! I'm submitting a character into the recruitment pool for this AP. I'll put up a link here to the character profile, but I'll include the backstory here. If you have any questions about my character, feel free to ask.
As Fryle grew up, he began to slowly draw away from his pursuit of sorcery and began to focus his studies on Numeria’s history. In his study of the different cultures and species of Numeria, the studious teenager’s fascination was drawn to the strange archaeological discoveries throughout the country, but was frustrated at the lack of knowledge at what futuristic wonders might lie within these places, as exploration, publication, or both was stymied by either barbarian tribes who looked disfavorably upon encroachment within their territories or censorship of such wonders by the Technic League.
The lack of access to such knowledge on served to fuel Fryle’s obsession for the knowledge of inaccessible ruins throughout Numeria and the secrets they kept. He read every significant book or document that he could access or find and kept his ears open for news of rare but illegal displays or demonstrations of the rare technological items discovered, developing an aptitude for understanding how those devices worked. In his last two years at the university, Fryle became a student clerk to an esteemed professor and scholar of history and linguistics. During this time, the young sorcerer discovered the professor’s research thesis on the origins of the town of Torch and the ruins underneath it and a copy of the linguistic notes of the translation of the strange alien language associated with those inaccessible archaeological sites. In those last two years of education, Fryle managed to make a copy of both thesis and book, only doing so in the instructor’s absence while smuggling his copied notes out of the university with his own papers related to his studies.
After graduation, Fryle made plans to leave Starfall for the town of Torch, the closest location of technological ruins he was curious to explore. He committed his dubiously gained writings to memory before burning them, used what little money he’d managed to save along with money he’d received from his parents for his graduation to buy some travelling equipment and set out for Torch, eager to explore the ruins there and plumb their secrets.

In before the deadline aaaaaaah
Here's an online sheet for Yanet, Kellid Numerian scavenger unrogue VMC nanite sorcerer - I'll hold off on making an alias for now. The background stuff is not as detailed as I'd have preferred (given how our PM conversation went) but hopefully it's enough to work with. Thanks!
One day, though, Khonnir made a startling discovery about Yanet. After seeing her interface with a piece of technology in a strange, unexpected way, the old wizard realized that there was something off with the girl. Further observation and study led him to conclude that she had somehow become the host of a swarm of nanites, much like the androids that emerged from the ruins. Whether they had been there since birth or entered her afterwards, they weren't sure, but the evidence of their existence quickly became clear. While Khonnir and Yanet were both concerned for some time, the nanites haven't seemed to affect her much so far, so they decided to just let them be.
Over the years, Yanet has grown up and refined her skills in everything from skymetal smithing to robot destrucion. Though the nanites still haven't shown any powers they may have just yet, she recently has been starting to feel strange, as if they're powering up in anticipation for some sort of event. Perhaps whatever it is could be related to the extinguishing of the Torch, and the caves below that her tutor has disappeared into? Either way, Yanet's skills would be well put to the test in finding out exactly what has happened - and she's got a far more personal stake as well.
As a child, Yanet was constantly brash and mischievous, but her time studying has matured her somewhat into a hardworking adult. She is confident in her ability and eager to use it to help those in need, as long as it's not too inconvenient for her. She tends to be deferential to her elders and those of higher station, though not to the point of subservience.
Small-framed for a Kellid, Yanet nevertheless commands a physical presence through her other traits. While for most of her life, she seemed like a completely ordinary person, her nanites have begun to manifest in strange ways recently, occasionally glowing in her veins. She is quick on her feet and moves in somewhat unexpected ways at times, perhaps on the influence of the little machines in her.
If posting on the cutoff date counts, I'd like to apply with Eyve.
Her details are in profile, but her's her description and background. She's a bit unique in that instead of the typical regeneration of an Andriod, with a ner personality after the body has been inert for a while all indications are that she's never been online before. She's a practically perfect physical specimen, but due to minimal personal experience has pretty low mental scores, not really due to low intelligence so much as an utter lack of general information.
Tattoos (like this but everywhere) Only glow when she uses her surge (technically NSFW-ish)
While appearing human at a cursory glance, Evye is definitely exotic in appearance. The first thing an observant person notices about her is that she embodies the athletic side of physical perfection. Were an idealized statue of a human female warrior to come to life, it would look very much like Evye does, sleek powerful lines and flowing curves that highlight both form and function.
Her silvery hair stands out in sharp contrast to her flawless coppery skin, a complex pattern of intricate tattoos lining her entire body, her grey eyes glittering with an odd metallic shimmer in a certain light. Tall for a woman, she stands at just under six feet in height, her frame a perfect balance between power and gracefulness, her movements effortless in nature.
Evye has no idea where she initially came from, though she has come to learn that is something many of her kind share. Found wandering naked and confused in the wilderness of Numeria, she was taken in by a small band of android travelers, given shelter and guidance on what live as an android in the land of the Technic League meant. who to be wary of, how to avoid drawing undue attention to oneself, lessons they hoped would stick for her sake.
She stayed with them for a few years, but her wide eyed innocence of so many things coupled with a curiosity to learn and experience things lead her to forge out on her own, something met with little resistance since the girl also seemed to possess another unique feature. Unlike those who had wandered centuries, being reborn time and time again, Evye appeared to be not only a newly minted android, but one gifted with exceptional physical ability and a knack for adapting to situation in a way that seemed to belie her otherwise limited knowledge.

Thanks for the update. I like to make this offer and occasionally it helps the process. If you have any questions about the build, the direction character, backstory, posting history etc. feel free to dm me. My past experience has been that almost everyone in the tread is also okay with answering questions if it will make the process easier.
Good luck all.
First I would like to acknowledge everyone for the awesome job they put into their characters. It was not easy picking a party. You gave me a run for my money. I have decided to go with a party of five. Would the following characters please report to the discussion thread and introduce yourselves.
Once again everyone made my job difficult. The worst part is having to eliminate characters. Thank you for trying.
