As an example, here is a post in my PbP (playing Hell's Rebels)
(I had to translate it, as I play in Spanish, but I hope it showcases our narrative style.)
I guess that makes sense. We have pictures of our characters next to every post we make, so seeing who "I is" has never been an issue.
It's interesting to hear from your perspective/experience.
In our case we have the discussion of our stuff (non-roleplay) through Telegram (messaging app) so in that case, I always talk about my character in the third person. So then I would indeed say something like "Serena is taking this spell for her new level"
The actual PbP though is kept exclusively in the first person (even when making notes to the GM normally).
I am a player of a PbP campaign (although not hosted on this website). After a while, it felt weird to me saying stuff like "Serena (my character) does this or that". So I informed the GM and the other two players that I wanted to experiment writing in the first person. They all loved it and that's what we (except the GM) have been doing for months.
Aside from this one PbP campaign, I mostly roleplay in person, which is why I think it felt odd to talk about my character in the third person. I "am" the character, and role-play as the character. Writing in the third person was "blocking" me from effectively feeling like I was in character.
Has anyone else ever had this issue/feeling?
How do you prefer to post: in the third or first person? (or something else)
For anyone with the same question, I have now found this specific rule, it's on page 8 (and not on the Bestiary section like I was looking for).
I have a question I have not managed to find in the books. The First World has prototype versions of the plants and animals of the Material Plane. Are they also considered plants and animals? Are they magical plants (?) and magical beasts?. Are they fey/something else?
What creature type/subtype should I consider creatures I create in the First World?

Thanks in advance!
Playing Pathfinder 1E in two groups, and we have no plans to ever switch to 2E honestly.
In one campaign we are playing Kingmaker and I play a half-orc druid. In the other campaign (this one a play by post), we are playing Hells Rebels, and I am playing a Milani human inquisitor, with a bit of harrowing on the side...
Aside from that, I'm working on a homebrew campaign using Pathfinder 1E rules & content :D
Root leshys are mentioned on page 86 of Blood for Blood (Kingmaker 4).
"Among the best known are superstitious gourd leshys, clever root leshys, and wary leaf leshys, though others are rumored to exist."
However, to my knowledge, this is the only mention of root leshys, despite them being one of the "best known" types of leshys. Have their stats been released somewhere?
Thanks in advance!
I am a tad confused about badger attacks.
The confusion comes from the badger (bestiary 2). The badger has 0 BAB, yet both of the badger's natural attacks have a +1 to hit:
Are these attacks assuming the badger has already entered into a blood rage, thus gaining a +2 strength, which would add a +1 to their attacks? If not, is this an errata?
Thanks for your help!
Thanks for your responses Omelas & PCScipio.
I wrote a new thread a day and a half ago in the Recruitment forum, but for some reason, it has not been "accepted/published". My post count in my profile shows 3 messages, meaning it has been "received" so maybe looking for a game that way is not allowed after all.
I had a look at your game Omelas, and I think I'll submit one of the characters I've had in mind for your game. Thank you very much for bringing your game into attention (and for making a space for PbB newbies).
In regards to PFS, I'm not quite into the idea, but I may do it if I don't manage to get in any other group. Thanks for the suggestion though.
That's awesome, thanks for your reply. I am glad to know I wouldn't be breaking any rules :D
I did have a look at the "open applications" thread, but I have several ideas for characters, which may fit different campaigns better or worse, so, for the time being, I think I prefer to advertise "myself" rather than a specific character.
I'm off to posting about myself, the characters I like to play, and the stuff I would love to be part of.
I've been playing Pathfinder (and D&D) for a few years, but I've never done PbP. I prefer Pathfinder over D&D, but unfortunately, I only know one Pathfinder GM, and our game is scheduled once every four months on average... So I have decided to take this matter into my own hands and seek a PbP game.
I have been looking for suitable games, but the one I was keen to join doesn't seem to be recruiting anymore (in the last post the GM said the decision was being made). I thought about making a "player seeking Pathfinder 1E adventure". However, in this thread someone mentioned that it may not be the place to do it, so I figured I would ask :)
So: can I make a "looking for game" post if there's nothing available?
