Oops, fixed your race.

Half dragon, why not? Remember, if you're unhappy with one choice, the mortality rate will likely be high enough you can try something else in short order!

So, I'm posting my app below this post (bad solars, double posting!), but I decided to make a separate post for questions.

1) LA's-how are they being handled given we're at level 1?

2) Are tweaks to material allowed to be discussed with you if we feel things were applied inconsistently/stupidly in the original material? (Note; I'm only asking about the possibility of discussion ^.^)

3) What rolling system are we using, apologies if I missed it being listed earlier in the thread

4) Are we allowed to reconsider characters if rolls are not very useful for the given character? (MAD classes that get spiked rolls, specialised classes that get pure 13's, etc)

No LA. If I remember correctly Pathfinder doesn't do LA, it has race points for the various creatures. As long as you're within the 9 - 12 RP range of the base races, you should be good. If not, perhaps there's some other avenue to achieve your goals with the vast content available when 3rd party stuff is included.

Please be more specific. Something's already on your mind, so don't be shy.

4d6 reroll ones, drop lowest, seven times, keep highest six.

Sure, or just roll in secret/spoilertext on your app.

Umm. I think I want to change my character. Something more fighty. I want to play someone more heroic. And as we have been given acces to 3rd party stuff, it seems a bit dull not to have a look in there.

Hang on...

Halflings are quite underrepresented in the paladin world. Good show.

Alright finally settled on what I want. This will be a consumate magic user with access to Arcane and Divine magic and spells and words of power...it should be a good time!

Name: Ator Izulin
Race: Half-Umbral Dragon
Age: 79
Class: Mythic Eldritch Godling (Archmage Path)

Personality: Power, that is the focus of Ator's life. He is neither kind nor cruel, most would describe him as selfish and self-centered, and to an extant they are correct. Ator is intent on expanding his budding power and gathering more and he is willing to go through whomever he must. Because Ator changed when he was young he has been viewed as a freak, so he doesn't grow attached easily. Ator also has little understanding of "social norms" due to his guardians keeping him sheltered as much of his life as they could. Because of this he can tend to say offensive things is an offhand manner and not realize they might bother others.

Background: Ator has had a strange life so far. He started as a normal human child, with blond hair, chestnut brown eyes, and fair skin. In all aspects, Ator was a normal little boy, except for the dreams. As far back as he could remember he had the dream of the creature made of shadows whispering to him. The creature had no features and was only vaguely man-shaped, but despite it's strangeness, Ator never felt malice from it in the dream. The words the thing of shadows spoke were never intelligible, and for many years he would fall into the dream, only to be lulled into a deeper slumber shortly after it's beginning. But all of that changed when Ator turned 12. From the day of his 12th birthday, Ator began to hear the words more clearly. He still couldn't decipher what was said, but the cadence of the words was clear. Every night they grew a little more clear. After three months, he could count the words, after seven he could diagram them based solely on length, and after eleven he was sure they were in another language. But on the eve of his 13th birthday, the dream changed. The creature moved from the foot of his bed, to looming over Ator, the words it spoke became intelligible to Ator although he still didn't understand their meaning, and the creature touched him, resulting in wracking pain spreading throughout his body.

Ator woke with a start and was sweating from the dream, feeling it was somehow more real than the others, but the creature was nowhere to be seen and he could feel no wounds, so he laid back down and went to sleep. In the morning, Ator went down stairs and his mother immediately noticed a black mark on Ator's forehead. After trying to clean it, his parents made him hide it with bandages and eventually took him to a healer in another city. The whole time the spot slowly grew and when they finally made it to the healer, she declared there was nothing to be healed. His parents were mystified and within a month his whole body had become black as the night. After four his skin had grown tough and scaled, nine months saw his bulk increase and he became much stronger and on his fourteenth birthday two black wings sprouted from his back, his fingers elongated slightly and grew claws and his mouth and nose elongated slightly and filled with sharpened teeth, but none of that was the strangest part. The strangest part were the words, the words that popped into Ator's mind. When he stoke them, he felt his muscles spasm slightly and something would happen. Sometimes things would float around Ator, sometimes a creature would suddenly spasm in pain, barely able to walk, and twice, he nearly set things aflame with the energy that pulsed from his hand.

His parents scolded him and forbid him from "using his sorceries" as they called it, and began keeping him at home. more and more until they couldn't let him leave the house for fear someone would see him. But being a child still, Ator didn't understand everything and grew frustrated and sullen until the purges a few years later. Stories had spread through the city about a black beast that flew through the night and stole children from their beds. When the rumor reached his parents, they rounded on him in a fury, but were unable to do much more than scold him. Ator had fully come into his physical maturity and was easily stronger than both his parents, he had to work hard not to break things around the house regularly. But the rumors didn't stop and soon the whispers were than there was more than one, and the black beast actually lead a band of shapechangers in their very town. The story grew and changed until the entire city was in a panic and the city guard was dispatched to search every house for the "Black Creature" and put an end to the wild stories. Unfortunately, the guards burst into Ator's house just when he was coming downstairs for the evening meal and saw him straight away. Two guardsmen ran off to gather the others sounding shrill whistles and the lead guardsman lunged at Ator in fear. Ator reacted instinctively and swiped at the man's arm with his claw, making him drop his sword. Both advanced on him this time, one with sword the other with dagger, and a new word sprang to Ator's mind, and not caring what it did, Ator spoke it with confidence and light arced between the two men, and in moments they feel down dead. His parents screamed and in that moment, Ator realized he could not stay. Three powerful strides carried him out of the house and he spread his wings and took to the skies. With no real destination in mind, Ator flew, a storm of emotions, but one stronger than the rest, anger.

Skills/Feats:
 

Player Bio: I am Scimmy. I play Pathfinder twice a month with a group in real life. I am running a Pathfinder campaign on this site and have participated in numerous games that didn't last on this site. I started playing D&D 3.5 8 years ago and when pathfinder came out we hesitantly made the switch and have loved it.

We currently have five applications, two work in progress and three complete. I'm going to be closing down applications on Wednesday and making a decision then.

Finished for now, may or may not add to the background later. Also, do we know each other before the dungeon?
