Hello! Very interested! I've run a Starfinder Society game on the Paizo boards before, but never had the chance to play as a player.

About MeI've been playing play by post games for a good 8-10 years now, I check games at least once per day (except during holidays) and a couple of times over the weekend. I'm running and playing in other games on the Paizo site, so will check in here when I check those.

I'm in the UK, so currently on GMT+1 and going GMT soon time wise.


Initial application below. Feedback Welcomed! I haven't done the Sample bit just yet, but I'll get that in the ext day or two. Please consider this a WIP for the moment.
ApplicationName: Matsu Soryn
Race: Korasha Lashunta
Class: Soldier
Theme: Mercenary
Age: 35
Alignment: LN
Home World: Castrovel

Description: Matsu Soryn is quite obviously male Lashunta. His short, squat frame stands at around 5ft, with his antenna adding another foot to that when fully erect. His sun-browned skin has three lines of raised markings, two flowing around his head from his cheeks. The third lines swirls up his temples and around where humans would have eye brows. Neon green markings form a geometric pattern over his bald head, mirroring the colour of his eyes and the tips of his antennae.

Armoured and strong, he carries enough weapons that it takes a minute to count them, but the most obvious is a Vesk reaction cannon, slung over one shoulder.

Matsu is quiet, determined. He is a forced to be reckoned with when riled. He pursues no goal other than perfection of his skills, and takes any work offered that will aid in that.

Background: Born and raised in Qabarat, Matsu was one of the minority of Lashunta not given the choice over his destiny. Through a mixture of telepathy and hormone secretion, his parents ensured he would end up Korasha. His sister, likewise was tuned to be Damaya. Unhappy that he was given no choice in this, irreversible, and highly personal decision, Matsu left his family home early and joined the military.

Praised through his basic training for this determination (even for a Lashunta) and commitment to learning new skills he quickly progressed. During an afternoon shifting ore crates shipped in by Duravor Kreel, the barracks was attacked, and Matsu's life was saved by the sniping shot of the dwarf. After serving his first term has taken his leave in order to pursue a more lucrative career, and to pay his debts.



Roleplaying Sample: Matsu and another Lashunta guard are unloading crates in the barracks loading bay, using an old grav-assist. Supervised by a dwarf.
Roleplaying Sample

Matsu grunted under the weight of the crate, the old grav-assist not doing the job he would hope of it. Sweat glistened of his muscles. A glint of sun on polished metal caught his eye. A man coming through the open yard gate. The man was followed by an android, and a Vesk, all with weapons out. "Guards! Intruders!" Matsu shouted, immediately dropping the crate and moving forward. He grabbed his side arm, and snapped off a shot. The laser pulse missed the man by inches, and scored a hole in the stone wall behind him. His second shot found it's mark though and the man staggered.

As Riyshin, the other guard, took the fight to the man, Matsu focused on the android. Slamming into his target with his shoulder, and snapping another shot at point blank range. The android went down easily, with a burning hole through it's skull. Panting, Matsu stood back up, and felt something heavy knock him back down. He turned as he fell, looking up into the face of the Vesk, huge muscles tensing under the stock of a huge projectile weapon.

The sun was eclipsed by the Vesk's reptilian head, and then the grin on it's face went from earnest, to dead in an instant. A flash of projectile erasing it's nose hole, and splattering gore over the ground behind it. As the huge body fell, Matsu heard a voice. "You were doing well, lad. But I had to help." The dwarf trotted over from his ship, and offered Matsu a hand up. "Duravor Kreel" he said offering his name "I could use someone with reactions and courage like that." Matsu nodded. "I owe you a debt." he said and he stepped over the Vesk, picking up it's weapon. "Two, for my life, and for my new friend here." he said, as he stroked the stock that had hammered his skull.

I haven't actually played any Starfinder yet, but I'm definitely interested. I'll put together a character and have an application up in the next day or so.

@Kapera
I usually don't do this, but I saw that you have a Star Frontiers game going in your sig and I just have to mention that I love that game. I used to play it with my brother and nephews way back when for years. Kudos

GMT is not a problem, Nevynxxx. I have a 1/week posting rate on this game. That certainly can speed up if all the players are up for it, but even with daily posting, time zones don't really matter. Also I have listed your ap complete because if you didn't change another thing, it has fulfilled all the requirements. You are welcome to change it right up until the deadline, just PM me and let me know what changed so I can review the new material.

And count me as another 1980s Star Frontiers veteran. When I'm ready to branch out beyond Core Races for Starfinder, Yazirians and Dralasites will definitely be a thing in my campaign. The Vrusk? Eh... Shirren's close enough.

I am interested but I've never played this system before and I will be using AONPRD. I was hoping to play a Mystic type character, possibly Kasatha or maybe even Lashunta, either race will probably work for what I have in mind.

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
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.

Towards that end, Ciandria went to study on Absalom station with the Starfinder Society. They hired her on as a student xenoarchaeologist. With their training under her belt which included hours upon hours of self defense classes, Ciandria knew she was ready for her first job. She heard of a ship headed for a newly discovered planet outside of the pact worlds.

*Time to do some field work/exploration

@Ricktur63

You have plenty of time to put together an application--deadline is October 9. I may cut things short if it's late September and the aps have stopped rolling in with nobody else having expressed interest, but you have time.

As for what type of character you want to play, I really don't want to exert any control over your creative choices. That said, at a certain point, party balance is a thing and we already have three strong applications for Soldiers. If the six strongest applications are for Soldier, well... then we move ahead with six Soldiers... and all the disadvantages to the party that lack of balance would entail. That's the only caution I'll offer on the issue.

From your answer I'm assuming that the options I listed are all okay for use. I will not be putting in an application for a soldier. I'm thinking the four armed Mystic is in order here. I'll start putting something together for your perusal most likely this weekend.
