Posting interest now, wanted to put more into it, but realized I'm running late for a tutoring session, so I'll probably have an app up either later tonight or at some point tomorrow. It would be my first time with Starfinder, would that be a problem?

Hey Mighty! I am currently creating a character to apply and I was a bit confused by the trait selection. You said we can pick two, one from ROTRL so where can I choose the other trait? Are 2 traits optional? Thanks, bud.

Also, just so you are aware this would be my first game of Starfinder and my first game on this platform in a pretty long time.

WIP FilthName: Filth

Species: Ysoki

Class: Mechanic

Theme: Outlaw

Description: Standing at 2'10", Filth is short, even for a Ysoki, though he does seems to gain a foot or two when someone begins complimenting his work. His sable brown fur is kept sleek and shiny, as obvious care is put into his appearance, and is only marred by a criss-crossing of scars that begin on his snout, and cross all the way down his back. His beady eyes can occasionally catch a glint of red in them, when caught under the wrong circumstances, but are usually just a regular black. His tail is split right at the tip which, in conjunction with his scars, is very indicative of some former abuse, though he is reticent to go into any details with anyone he does not trust utterly yet. Luckily for most, he can be a very trusting person, almost immediately.

Personality:

Background:

Not a problem. We all have to have a first game sometime.

For the second trait, you have to convert it from Pathfinder 1E. The link I included will tell you if a skill name was changed like Knowledge Local to Culture for example. If you need more help figuring out how to convert it let me know and I can look at it.

But here is a list of what is probably close to every trait ever published for Pathfinder. Some are probably more useful than others, but again let me know if need help converting one or ideas.

Name: R-T4K5 (Artaks)
Species: Android
Class: Soldier
Theme: Mercenary


Description: Mixing traditional samurai apparel and style with futuristic armor plating, Artaks looks like what happens when the Old World crash lands into the new. Heavy weight fabrics under heavier armor, every move he makes is deliberate and precise. On the outside he looks completely human. His only physical feature betraying his secret lack of DNA is that his eyes and the circuits under his skin glow green when he is angry or extremely focused. This is something he can not control.


Personality: Artaks is perceived by most to be very dry, and emotionless. Although he does not consider himself to be. His sense of humor (if you could call it that) is very short and sarcastic. He can be quite cynical and has been known to be called a pessimist. He tends to see the obstacles of a situation before anything else. He would say that makes him a realist not a pessimist. Though his general demeanor is quite serious most of the time, he does appreciate a good laugh when someone can rouse it out of him.


Background: Artaks was created by a merchant and master weaponsmith to be the ultimate weapon. His creator Hattori Hanzo was not only a legendary maker of weapons but a devout swordsman himself descended from a long line of masters of the martial arts. Hattori spent years engineering the one and only R-T4K5 unit, and decades afterwards training him to be not only a great swordsman, but an honorable man. As time passed Artaks showed no signs of aging, while his father and mother withered before him. When they passed away they left him the family business which he ran with pride and success until a group of thugs threatened his weapon shop, his father’s weapon shop. After he refused to pay for protection and broke the nose of the mouthy one, they locked him inside the building and burned it to the ground. Rising from the rubble and smoldering ashes, his skin melted off revealing the steel and circuitry underneath, Artaks swore revenge and went on a bloody rampage spanning seven star systems. What should have been a simple journey of revenge ended up being a much more extensive endeavor as the thug whose nose Artaks broke ended up being the son of one of the biggest crime bosses in the western edge of the galaxy.
Artaks wiped out the entire gang except for the son, whose father smuggled him away as his final act before meeting the steel of the lone swordsman. As persuasive as Artaks can be, he was not able to get the crime boss to reveal his son’s destination and thus Artaks has spent years tracking him down. During that time, he has worked for various organizations as a mercenary, only taking jobs he considered honorable. He learned much and more about the inner workings of the different mercenary gangs in the sector and with his earnings he was finally able to afford a new skinjob. Artaks slowly began to fit in to his new life and even began to forget about the son of the gang boss that burnt down his father’s shop. Until fate intervened and revealed that the young man Artaks had been hunting this whole time had escaped to a small backwater space station called Starpoint and made a small fortune for himself by building and operating a secret casino hidden to all but the most dastardly of Starpoint residents. With Starpoint being as small as it is, Artaks wanted to take his revenge as quietly as possible. So he waited outside the casino until his target came out to leave for the evening. From the shadows he emerged and quickly cut down more than a dozen bodyguards before challenging the arsonist to one on one combat. The two combatants fought aggressively, trading blows and parries for what felt like hours. But when Artaks began to overtake his target, the man pulled a blaster from his boot and shot Artaks in the stomach. With the last bits of his strength Artaks harnessed the memories of his father’s teachings and slayed his enemy with lightning fast fury. Leaking several important fluids, Artaks escaped the scene and rented a room nearby to heal. Over the next few weeks, he meditated long and hard about the purpose of his life. Had he wasted the decades on revenge? Was it a worthwhile pursuit? He did not have the answers, but after so much thinking he finally knew his path forward. The best possible way of honoring his father’s legacy. So, he set his sights on opening a new weapon shop on Starpoint. Something his father would be proud of. But opening a shop from scratch is no easy feat. So, for the past few months he has taken mercenary work on and around Starpoint, saving up in the hopes of finally opening the dream shop. Hanzo’s Martial Weapons.

Ellie-5
left-aligned image

Name: Ellie-5
Species: Android
Class: Biohacker
Theme: Scholar

Description: Ellie could almost pass for an attractive young human woman- if it weren’t for the obviously artificial lines on her skin, and the LEDs on her neck and eyes clearly marking her as an android. She’s on the petite side, standing just over five feet tall, and has light brown hair that just brushes her shoulders. She almost always wears a pair of large circular eyeglasses, a necessity brought on by a slight defect in her ocular processors.

Personality: Ellie could easily be described as “perky”, although the reality is closer to “endlessly optimistic and a bit naive”. She was built a mere six years ago, and has only been out on her own for around two of those six years, so she hasn’t had a lot of first-hand experience to learn from. Like many androids, she struggles with her own emotions, and more often than not her curiosity gets the better of her and she defaults to excitement. She is extremely inquisitive, particularly about unusual creatures, and once something catches her interest, she will keep on investigating… until she’s distracted by something else interesting, anyway.

In contrast to her childishness in certain aspects, Ellie is not at all squeamish, particularly when it comes to cutting creatures open to find out how they tick. Her general preference is to observe her specimens alive, but occasionally she feels it necessary to (humanely) terminate a specimen so she can study its biology more closely. She does, however, mark a stark difference between the beasts she studies and sapient people. Not that she isn't just as interested in sapient creatures' biology, but she will not perform dissections and the like on a person's corpse unless that have willingly donated their body to science, or there is a greater need (such as a potential cure for a deadly illness, for example). Likewise, she dislikes using violence against sapients, but will do so if it is necessary to defend herself or others. She may he somewhat naively optimistic, but the conditions of her creation also made her aware of the darker side of humans and other races.

Background:

Ellie-5 (originally “Laboratory/Experimental unit, model Five) was created to be a lab assistant in a small biological research station run by a somewhat less than reputable corporation. Ignoring the ban on android slave labor in favor of a cheap, expendable worker, the corporation created her to perform the tasks deemed too dangerous or simply too tedious to bother the researchers with. It wasn’t long before L/E-5 realized that she was smarter than most of the scientists she was supposed to be working for. It was also clear that her safety was not exactly a priority (she often wondered what had happened to models one through four). Seeing no other reasonable option, she decided to leave.

It was a simple matter for her to sneak aboard and stow away on a cargo ship leaving the station. A staged explosion in the lab to fake her death ensured she wouldn’t be looked for; while also drawing enough attention to the facility that the authorities would almost certainly discover what they had been up to. Taking the name Ellie, she set off to see the galaxy for herself.

Leaving the lab did not mean that her scientific curiosity was lessened at all, or course. It simply meant she could now pursue her own projects on her own terms. She had always been fascinated by the exotic specimens brought into the lab for testing, and was eager to see more. She’s been to a few planets and seen some interesting creatures, and after hearing about the variety on unique beasts found throughout the Rukbat sector, she has come to Starpoint to find out more details about what can be found in the area.

Icarus, will you right align or left align your photo. Will help reduce the wall of text .

[IMGr}a[/IMGr] or l instead of r for left.

Fear, try to give me more details. Curious about what? Himself, other races, history, war, gangs, music, religion, cultures? Does he dress richly, poorly, menacingly? Tell me about his clothes, scars, jewelry, or anything else to visualize him. For his background, what company? Where did he grow up? Was he born here or just here for the mission? Why did it go wrong? What was he asked to do that he didn't have resources? Was it just him or was he part of a creature capture group? Is he going to show the company how terrible they are, try to rejoin, burn it down for firing him?

It is all good. Looks much better now. Just so you guys know, I sorta scanned the apps. Haven't done an indepth review yet but I will try to do one with some more specific feedback than picture alignment tips. But that last app puts us at 5. Hoping to get another 5 to 10 over the next week and closing this out and starting the game by March. But depending on how much traffic we get, we will see.

I am looking for a solid set of players. The adventure paths are not necessarily the most deadly/challenging scenarios out there so I don't need perfect min/maxed party, so we may end up with multiple soldiers and such.

He too enjoys traveling with fellow adventurers. A self trained Solarian. He hopes that a soul searching journey into the stars will strengthen his connection to his powers to the cosmos further. As he begins his journey of exploration.

CharacterName: Krom
Species: Damya Lashuntas
Class: Envoy
Theme: Scholar

Description: A scrawny tall man with long hair tied in a ponytail mainly to keep his antennae all tangled up. His light brown skin is emphasizes his blue eyes which show curiosity and intelligence. A pair of glasses sit on the brim of his nose and a lab coat covers his light armor, both still torn in places. A single scar runs across his chest as a reminder of the team he lost.

Personality: Krom has a curious mind specifically about the creatures of the universe. He gets along with other well enough but prefers to observe the world around him. His attempt to lead the team he was assigned instilled in the urge to lead others as well a pain to make up for his failure, And his distrust of corporations.

Background: Born in the eastern galactic edge and from a young age had an interest all of the strange creatures. He became a field scientist that was tasked with studying a magical beast and then leading a team to capture it. The plan went south due to lack of resources, mainly tranquilizers and enough men. The team was quickly wiped out with krom being the only survivor. The Umbrella company fired krom for his failure to capture it. He soon discovered that they were doing horrible experiments on the creatures they capture. Now seeking some credit to continue exploring the universe and find a way to get back at the horrible company. Recently arrived in starpoint, arriving on a trade ship that gave him passage for a few credits. with some hope he will find some work to earn some more money.
