So... I had the misfortune to find the PFRPG Right here, and a copy of the Bestiary, which means it has taken up more than a little of my thinking away from other topics. That and my prior enjoyment of the setting, Golarion, used in the APs and adventure books... well, yeah.
I like it because it feels like I'm in a folk tale. If that's what interests you, I'd like to try running a game for you.
You, like so many creatures in this world, are fairly low-powered. Well, you're strong and brave and all that, and perhaps wise in the ways of the world, or magic, or both; enough that you've won the odd scuffle or three; but so many things out there are just as strong as you are that it's so often a toss up. Tooth and nail every day. Not to say that a group of determined souls couldn't take on an Efreet with enough spears, (were they not creatures out of fireside stories), but for the most part you and the odd pack of wolves circling your camp are roughly even.
It's a cold night, in fact, and the steam from your campfire is thick as smoke in this air. The grass on either side of the road is frozen, and as the wolves circle among the trees you can hear it crunch beneath their paws.
The scholar you were travelling with stumbled off the log he'd been sitting on at the first howl, but gathered his wits quickly, and now waves a torch back and forth to ward off the wolves. Blasted beasts! What do they want with us? Isn't there game in these woods enough for them? He held the brand without shaking hands, though beneath his thick layers of robes he may have shuddered. He looked up to you. Well? What do you normally do when this happens?

Keep in mind I will be working out of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting book, the one that came out before the Beta playtest, and way before the PFRPG came out. That said, I'm not entirely sure where it'll be, though certainly in a "humanocentric" area.
DM rant starting with Characters
Character Creation: level 6, please. PFRPG core book, and the playtest classes of Oracle, Cavalier, Summoner and Witch are okay. No eeeeevil characters, thanks (so skip the baby-eating options), but an interesting dynamic is good.
Races should generally be human nationalities, but I encourage one or two non-human characters, but that's all. Human is the setting, with other stuff as add-ons to it.
PFSRD only, really, excepting the human races and setting information. I don't think anyone can manage a PrC, yet, though if you're gunning for it I want to know now (so I can know if we're going to level up or what you're hoping to be exactly).
No Emo characters, if you could, or destructive/pointless characters. And please give me character, as best you can, both in terms of living characters and in terms of entertaining to watch.
Also: how are you lot with folk tales? folk music? historical drama?
Stats: Hmmm... Invisible Castle only roll 4d6, drop the lowest; AND if you want to use the same numbers as another player, you can (example: everyone rolls 1s, except marty, who rolls three 18s; everyone can take his rolls). NO RE-ROLLS and I WILL BE CHECKING!!!
I'm more interested in good RP than stats, and it bugs me when people just keep rolling and rolling until they get "magic". If everyone hates their stats (and honestly), we as a group will trash the last batch and start from scratch ACROSS THE BOARD.
Equipment: Let's start with basic stuff. I'll distribute magic later, and if you kids can find it, and survive to claim it, that's great. Keep it simple. Standard gold for 6th level, roll for it.
Where: I don't know yet. It's going to be mainland, somewhere cold at night but not snowy, and likely not too far from the western side of the continent. There's wolves, and the folk have white skin, but it's not the land of the Linnorm Kings either.
However, I'm hoping you lot get into the Realms and human nations. Create a character, then pick a nation and decide how that nation would have formed them for several levels. I don't care where you come from, but there's a story behind how you got to where you are; likely banal, but there you have it.

How about a dragon disciple with the following stats?

Interested, but would like to know your preferred posting frequency. Pbp is slow enough and I'm not interested if the rate is once a week. I'll start considering ideas, though, as I love folklore and mythology.

I would definitely be interested in playing in this game. I've run the Rise of the Runelords AP for my group and loved the setting. We switched to the pfrpg rules when they came out and have been running ever since. I've got a few character ideas churning around inside my head, but as soon as I settle on one I'll post it here for your consideration.
