2001 -- (undifferentiated GM credit marker, was leaning towards half-elf barbarian, but not sold on it, still waiting for a lot more replayable content.)

2002 -- Tengu (Also undifferentiated GM credit marker)

2001 - Unbreakable Goblin
2002 - Sensate Gnome

Thus far, I'm content with what I have. Since I want to take a more relaxed and sedate pace with making characters for PFS2 vs. PFS1, I probably won't make 2003+ until leshies and some other options are green-lighted :)

2001 - Fey-Touched Gnome
2002 - Half-Elf
2003 - Elf (Ancient, if available: still a GM credit blob)
2004 - Versatile Human
2005 - Still unclear: likely human or elf

I've only played -2001; the others all only have GM or Pregen credit.
And sure, I've got a lot of elf, as they are all reimagined versions of older characters I had in previous campaigns. The gnome is really my baby, though.

I figure Goblin will skew high since they weren't (generally) available in 1st Edition.

Looks like I'm the only Bigbelly. It's mechanically the weakest of the heritages, but my character is a recreation of one I played in D&D that ate everything he came across, so thematically it was the best match.

Unbreakable is the most popular goblin by far, probably for the HP. Versatile is the most popular human - hard to beat an extra general feat.

Don't ask where 03 & 05 are, 'cause I don't know. I had a problem with 03 and deleted it, meaning to start over. But the system cranked out 04 as my next character. Next I time I called for a new character out came 06...
