Well, guess I start. Halfling rogue. Former slave, will probably be taking advanage of the situation to free other slaves if he gets the chance. Very good at the social and sneaky skills, not so much good in a straight up fight, although there's always shanking people while they're distracted. Might be working with someone more established/upper-class-y, posing as their slave to let him move around without as much attention on him than if he was walking around obviously free.

I'm working on a vigilante, so I'll be filling one of three yet-to-be-determined roles: stabbity death, sorta-arcane-support (sorc/wiz list, but really limited spells/day), or sorta-divine-support (inquisitor list).

Hey,
I'm looking at two possibilities for my character.
Monk - on a pilgrimage and discovering the corruption and oppression of Kintargo and determines that he will give aid to those that are oppressed because it is right.
Rogue - A former socialite and scoundrel this character would have been caught in the wrong bed, imprisoned and tortured. Either released or escaped with a thirst for revenge on those in power that had been thought of as friends but did nothing to aid them.

Monk would be a Lawful Good character, probably a strong Sentinel for the party. The Rogue would likely be Chaotic either Neutral or Evil depending, and either a good Recruiter or Spymaster.

I'm pretty set on making an Elan Dread. I'm still hammering out details/going through the player guide, but the basics are that she belonged to a coven (cult, sect, whatever) of Calistra that was disbanded/killed when her worship was outlawed. Her schtick is that she's attempting to become a sort of folklore figure so that her name itself carries a sort of anxiety and fear. A mystery wrapped in an enigma that leaves you wondering why you just wet yourself. But I promise she's kind of a good guy. ;)

She's likely going to be wielding a whip and will be focused on really messing with the mind using fear and nightmares. She'll be good at intimidating others and sewing deceit and confusion (hopefully among enemy ranks).

As for alignment/officerness of my halfling social rogue, I'm thinking CG/CN and Demagogue or Spymaster would make the most sense.

As a vigilante I get two alignments, so i'll probably go True Neutral for Social Identity and Chaotic Neutral for Vigilante Identity.

Alright you got me. I'm thinking Cavalier, though dunno about archetype. Probably going with one of Drew's custom Orders, likely Order of the Rose.

I'm thinking Strategist as primary character concept (though I may need some OOC help with that). Current thoughts are to have an Axebeak(chocobo) mount, so Partisan could also make some sense. I was planning some kind of merchant background, and competence managing our trade/supply routes.

Current thoughts on officers:

Demagogue: Elan Dread
Partisan: Vigilante?/ Occult?
Recruiter: human rogue?/ Occult?
Sentinel: human monk? / vigilante?
Spymaster: Halfling Rogue
Strategist: Cavalier

Updated the approximate lineup.

Recall also that you do not necessarily need one of each officer. I wanted six players because I thought that would be neat, but, this is your organization, and if you decided to, say, not take a Partisan at all and have multiple Spymasters for a Secrecy-heavy organization, that would be your prerogative.

Also, while I think that Tasia would make a good Demagogue, I'm not sure her Dread would. Unless you're going more for a Terrorist Cell than a Rebellion. Again, your prerogative.

A valid criticism. Perhaps I should have said, "an organization with a larger focus on militancy and fear tactics".

I saw it more as she would be good at reminding our supporters of what scared them into joining us in the first place. "Remember the future you saw with THEM in charge? Let me show you again. This is what we're fighting against."
