Recruitment is Closed

Thanks to all who applied! You've definitely given me some tough decisions to make.

At some point in the next 24 hours (probably won't be that long) I'll post selections.

Good luck to everyone! I'm excited about the possibility of getting into this game, and all the really cool character apps. Even if I don't get in, I'm really glad it's introduced me to the Starfinder rules and the Pact Worlds setting. Awesome stuff.

Good luck all! I am pretty excited as well. More importantly and hopefully we'll get more community members wanting to get into Starfinder!

...and then maybe we'll get our character sheets!

Selection time
Selections

Well, as I've said, you guys didn't make this very easy for me. There isn't a character or player in this thread that I wouldn't be happy to have in the game. But I can't take more than six, so let's get this over with... In deliberately randomized order, I'm selecting Runetide's half-orc space pirate soldier Vette
Unko Talok's shirren scholar mystic T'aro
Blackfyre's ysoki ace pilot operative Grix
Nevynxxx's lashunta mercenary soldier Matsu Soryn
Khalil's human bounty hunter envoy Mendev Malone
Lord99's vesk mercenary soldier Kurskedeva
these guys.

Thanks to everyone who showed an interest--I truly enjoyed all of your apps and I really hate having to say no to some of them. I hope to have a chance to play with each of you in the future.

The Reach of Empire
The Sunrise Maiden Needs a New Pilot!

I am opening up recruitment for ONE new player for my Dead Suns game. The game is currently about to enter the second stage of the third of six modules in the AP. It was inducted to the Hall of Fame last year and is a game I have reasonable hopes for running it to completion.

Typically, I encourage applicants to come up with any kind of character they want, but in this case, we have a significant need that must be filled. I am looking for a character who can serve as the team's pilot in Starship combat. High Dexterity, piloting as a class skill, and the ace pilot theme are all features that would make a character excel in this capacity, though you don't have to have all three to qualify.

This game has been going on for several years, and has some outstanding players involved. We have resources in place to bring new players quickly up to speed on the story and the relevant quests and plot points. You may want to look at the thread on the game forum called "The Opening Crawl" if you're interested in applying.

Guidelines:
  • Character starts out at level 6
  • Character will be a member of the A secret-ish society of explorers and adventurers based on Absalom StationStarfinder organization currently tracking down a A renegade and exiled military force of powerful undead bent on taking over Eox and the rest of the Pact Worlds systemCorpsefleet spy ring on Eox.
  • Character should be a pilot and have at least one of the character traits mentioned above for a good pilot.
  • Because my timeline is short, you have the option of skipping one or two of the three written sections in the application form (Description, Background, RP Sample); you won't be penalized for this.
  • Otherwise, follow the guidelines below.

I would like to make a selection by this coming weekend because we are getting close to the end of the current section, so please try to get applications in by Saturday. If you can't get one ready by then, at least post interest and I'll consider extending the deadline.


Game SpecificsGame Name: Dead Suns
Game System: Starfinder
Themes: Solving ancient mysteries to defeat elusive enemies
Flavor: Science Fantasy, emphasis on fantasy
Scope and ExpectationsDead Suns is a 6-module adventure path that I have pared down for PbP. Minimum expectation will be 1 post/week. If players post faster than that, I'll gladly pick up the pace as I am able.

I will consider applicants with any level of experience with Starfinder (including none)--I am more concerned with writing talent and dedication as a PbP player. However, all players will need access to the Starfinder Core Rulebook and a willingness to Those with Pathfinder experience should pick it up quicklylearn the game.

Other Rulebooks: The Pact Worlds Campaign Guide might be helpful in writing an application, but the setting is described adequately enough in the Core Rulebook for a good character background. Archetypes, class options, and equipment from the Pact Worlds Campaign Guide and The Armory are allowed, but the use of these books by players is entirely optional. Players who only own the Core Rulebook will not be at any disadvantage.
Character Parameters
  • I am looking for 1 character from the official Pact Worlds setting--specifically a PILOT
  • All characters start at Level 6
  • Core Classes only; Core Races and Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Halfling, Half-Elf, and Half-OrcPathfinder legacy races are permitted
  • Themes from the Core Rulebook and Pact Worlds Campaign Guide permitted
  • Archetypes from the Core Rulebook, the Pact Worlds Campaign Guide, and The Armory will be permitted starting at level 2
  • Any alignment, so long as the way you play it does not preclude your effectively working with others
  • Standard 10-point buy for ability scores
  • Hold off on ability scores, I will provide an in-post template for character sheetscharacter sheets, and equipment purchasing until selections are made

Applying for this game
Recruitment is open until Saturday January 28th at Midnight, but only for pilot characters.

Applications should include the following basic information about your character (bold black) and the three written sections (bold blue). Please read these instructions carefully and use the same bold black and bold blue formatting for the headings in your application (unparsed code is provided in this spoilerbutton for your convenience).

 

Name: Provide pronunciation if you think it necessary
Race: Any from the Core Rulebook, including the Pathfinder legacy races from Chapter 13
Class: Any from the Core Rulebook
Theme: Any from the Core Rulebook or the Pact Worlds Campaign Guide
Age: As per the rules
Alignment: Anything that allows you to work with a group
Home World: Any Pact Worlds system planet, moon, asteroid, ship, sun, or station (including Absalom Station) are permitted.

Description – Describe your character physically, and give a general sense of their personality. For now, please no pictures. One paragraph.

Background – Make this as long or as short as you like, but length for length's sake will not be rewarded and good, concise writing will not be penalized. Note that your character is a member of the Starfinder organization and is on a mission to find out about a possible Corpsefleet spy ring on Eox. This is what will bring them into contact with the main party so they can join the game. You may give them any backstory for this mission and personal history that you like.

Roleplaying Style – In one sentence, establish an in-game situation and write your character’s response post. An example of establishing a situation in one sentence: “The character rounds a corner with an armload of stolen valuables and crashes headfirst into a security patrol.” Extra credit if you tie this situation into your background. Put your post within its own fieldset. It must be written for the character you are applying with--don't use posts from other games. EDIT: Please include at least a line or two of dialogue for your character. It can be spoken (bold) or internal (italic).

QUESTIONS & FEEDBACK - When in doubt, ask. I am open to any questions about the Starfinder game in general, the setting/AP in particular, and anything else relating to the game. Please post questions in this thread in case others are wondering the same thing. Feedback on applications prior to selections will always be secret to the applicant. Mainly feedback will be seeking clarification where needed, possibly asking for more detail, and pointing out if you've gone outside the parameters established above.

I can tweak her skills and profession to pilot or rework her if needed.

Am I too late already? Are any of these options a no-no?


This is a work in progress for now...

Application Form
Name: Ciandria Sol
Race: Kasatha
Class Mystic / I thinkTechnomancer
Theme: Xenoarchaeologist
Age: 39 years
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Home World: Idari

Description: Ciandria stands just over two meters tall but the most notable thing about her is her solid black eyes which seem to draw in the ambient light. Her skin is a pale bluish grey and the woman is slender for her race. Her clothing is predominately form fitting leather in various pastel colors. Nothing too bold for her tastes. Her jacket has a high collar and behind the collar she wears a scarf across her mouth for decorum and the sake of polite society.

Background: In Ciandria's family and clan there is a long history of strong willed women being chosen as Doyen. Ciandria's mother and aunt are both Doyen and her grandmother was also Doyen as well as her great grandmother. Ciandria really has never had any desire to become Doyen but her mother is certain she will be called to serve at some point in her career. The truth of the matter is that Ciandria simply wants to study history. The history of her own people as well as that of other worlds and races.

The woman often spends most of her days in study on Idari. The records are elaborate on the station ship and there are plenty of materials from which to draw. With her family history as Doyen many of her evenings are spent attending functions hosted to honor visiting dignitaries. The various dignitaries are generally from across the pact worlds looking to engender trade with the Kasathan's. It was at one of these events that Ciandria met the Dwarven man Duravor Kreel. He struck up a conversation with her after her mother Kajair introduced them. Kajaria mentioned offhandedly that she had an interest in foreign worlds, peoples and cultures. Mister Kreel had been engaging and interesting and not nearly as offensive to her Kasathan sense of decorum as many others had been.

Ciandria had just returned from a visit to Verces when she received the private communique from Kreel. It had been over two months since she had first met the dwarven man. The message was pre-recorded and not interactive so it was a bit vague. He asked her to come to Absolm station and meet up with him and several others. He thought she may be interested in joining the Starfinder's Society. After just a bit of research Ciandria thought that she might indeed be interested in joining the Strarfinders. She couldn't be certain because the rumors about the Starfinders varied widely according to whom you were to ask.


Roleplaying Sample: Walking the common corridors of Absalom station Ciandria's mind was a whirl. So many questions remained about these Starfinders. Foremost in her mind was, what did they want with her? Are their intentions honorable? Is Kreel trustworthy? She got the impression that he was, but one was never certain until you really got to know someone. Ciandria supposed it was a question of putting a bit of faith in someone to earn their trust. For her that faith was in Eloritu the keeper of secrets.

As the woman made her way to the meeting place she scanned the vid screens that were ever present. Some with general information others with wanted criminals and other more useful screens with maps and directions. From a quick study she could tell that she was on the right path. She had plenty of time to make the meeting place at the appointed hour. Ciandria was hungry and thirsty after her flight and the food on those flights never live up to her personal preference or expectations.

The Kasathan woman stopped at a cafe and ordered an iced java and a sweetmeat pie. When the android waiter brought her order he sat it on the small table. She had to ask; "Do you have a straw for my drink please?" A few moments later he returned with her straw. Then, as is her way Ciandria said a prayer of thanksgiving to Eloritu. She lifted the straw beneath her veil and took a sip from her iced java. She set it back to the right side of her plate. Turned the plate one-hundred-eighty degrees and took a single bite from the meat pie. She turned her glass the same and took another sip. Ciandria was always careful not to expose the lower part of her face while she ate or drank anything.

After she finished her breakfast Ciandria made her way to meet up with Kreel and several others....
