I'd be interested.  Dimensional travel sounds convenient as a way to scratch my shadow-pouncing itch.

I'll see if I can track down the book (I work in a library, with luck we've got it).

Another Fine Myth arrived today btw, been reading it on the tram to/from work.  Enjoying it so far - I'm definitely interested!

I've read almost every book in the Myth series (are there any that came out after Sweet Myth-ery of Life?), and I would love to play in that universe.  Can I be a Gargoyle, and have a salamander familiar?  Pretty please?

Yeah, it took him seven years to get back to the series, but he wrote about eight more after Sweet Myth-tery.

Finished the book myself. I am really glad to have read it. I'm interested to see what kind of plot could come from Caelic's mind using this setting. :D
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

I'm definately interested as well, my father got me interested in the series and bought me the first book(or two?) and I loved them. Would it be possible to play a Deveel?

Yeah, 4 books down now, just waiting for #5 in the post.

I'm envisaging a Changeling Wizard / Recaster / War Weaver, with shapechanging improved familiar.  I think the Disguises and multiple identites would fit the dimension-hopping, and be great fun.

Likewise, I'm still incredibly interested in this.

Even if I don't get to play, this is the sort of game I wouldn't mind watching.

Hey, da Boss-man sez for me ta tell ya that he's innerested too. While he ain't neva played in one a' them Play-by-posta things, he sez that he'd 'love ta give it a go'. So, if youse knows what's good for ya, you'll let him join yer game.

(Heh. I very much echo what Skeeve there said; while I'd much prefer to play, I can also be content to watch. That sounds...dirty...I like it)

Preliminary prep-work is just about finished.  It would be helpful if folks interested in non-standard races could let me know which ones, so I can make sure I have them statted.  Klahds are humans; I have stats for Pervects, Trolls/Trollops, Imps, Deveels, and a few other races.  There are a lot of races in the books, though.

I think I'd like to be that archer race from Archiah. And yes, I'll take the LA to be able to half of what Ajax could do.
Maybe Far Shot or Precise Shot as a racial bonus feat?

I'm interested in being from Zoorik. Lookin at Shadowcraft Cheezer...er Mage. That or perhaps a were-somethingorother (bogeyman, perhaps?) from Limbo. Any special rules on magic? What would be the starting level?

I haven't quite decided what I want to play yet, but I'm 99% certain it's going to be a race from that list.  I *might* want to play a Cupy (the race that Markie is), but I'm not sold on that, so if you don't have stats for it, don't stress out about it.

Ignore Skeeve - stat up the Cupy please :D

Well, I'm not 100% sure it's what I want to play, but it's definitely a candidate.

Just as an addendum to this - I'm definitely leaning towards a Cupy.

A Cupy spellcaster of some sort, enchantment focused naturally.

A Cupy Spellcaster who take Improved Familiar for a Blink Dog.

A Blink Dog Puppy.

Ain't he cute? :D[/spoiler]

Having finally gotten my computer virus-free, I'll be posting general background about the game in the next few days.

A few things to know:

1. A number of races will probably feature racial progressions or paragon classes.  For a race like Archer, I simply can't see any other way to do it and have it make sense.

2. The campaign will probably start at level 7.

3. No firm decision has been made on who's "in."  Character concepts will have a lot to do with that decision.
