I believe that it has to be completed in the same round, so anything requireing more than 10 cubic feet would not work for this idea.

An exercise in hubris, eh? I think I know just what archetype to take ...

Here are the bare bones of my concept. Please let me know if this start seems like a good fit or if anything should be tweaked.

Someone who wants to spy on the gods themselves? Can't possibly see the hubris in that at all!

Definetly a good idea, can't wait to see what you come up with

Mechanics: Since Delphyna's goal is quite broad and nebulous, I don't have a specific plan of attack. Certainly she will research the most powerful divination spells and seek to expand her network of informants and spies across the planes. She also wants to collect bits of everyone for scrying spells. Secrets are her currency, so she acts as an information broker to pay the bills. But I really don't have any more details on how she'll achieve her goal.

Role: Spymaster and illusionist. Queen of truth and fiction. She can uncover the enemy's darkest secrets, mollify the masses with illusory delights, and intimidate an army with a dragon from her mind's eye. Her primary role is likely chief of intelligence—you can't fix problems until you know what they are.
I see somewhat of an overlap between Llordaeron and Del. He doesn't focus as much on illusions but is heavily divination oriented and may undercut you. Llordaeron sees the deities as potential obstacles but his method involves intimidation to push them aside.
Where we differ may lie in his compulsion to practice certain sciences and medicine, involving mostly astronomy (beginning with the development of next generation telescopes and proceeding to colonization of other planets) and psychology (finding out the desires of the population and determing the best course after while subtly manipulating his enemies). Also early on I intend to harness the power of radiation to power our kingdom and can use it in combat if needed (there will be a research period and a public opinion poll during this time).
Could we coexist? I think so, but it's a lot of divination going on. My class is oracle and some of my feats revolve around divination. We could coordinate our divinings in some way and get more accurate and elaborate results on the plus side of things.
Give my description on page one a gander and see what you think. My name is Llordaeron Yaeru. And don't be afraid to friend me if you're interested in some teamwork Del.

Sorry for being so slow, but I have been thinking really hard about my concept. It is a bit late now, but Hopefully I will have finished writing it tomorrow.

My girfriend and I are running off to the family farmhouse for a couple of days; I'll complete my application when I return!

OK, I've held off as long as I could. Expressing interest, because I want to own the world.

A quick private question for PW.

@taleteller for langauges, there isn't any regional or country dialects that you need to worry about. Just what stated under the lingusitics skill

I'd also like to say that I am now terrifed of the deadline, none of you are making it easy on me to decide here. I love all of these plans, keep them coming!
