Thanks! Although I think I'll stick to the Core Rulebook only. That's plenty of new stuff for now as I only ever made one other PF2 character before, and never got to play.The APG has a Mastermind rogue subclass. Or straight up Investigator class if you'd like more optiins on that front.
You are in good company. I played PF2 a few times during its playtest, but I have never, not once, played PF1. I think Paizo generally writes good material, though. I just don't know much about the world.Yeah I need to work on my background. I also did not play much of Pathfinders official setting so my understanding of Golarion is limited.
It looks pretty good to me. If anyone else wants to look it over as well, feel free. See if I missed anything. Character auditing is my least favorite GM task LOLTry now, I didn't set the permissions properly at first. Let me know if it is still not accessible.
The basic gist of things was that the PCs had been hired as extra security on a caravan, so you could be one of those, just haven't been named or important to the story yet. Otherwise maybe you were in Etran's Folly and staying at the Feedmill just passing through and you see an opportunity to offer your legal services to the party, as well as other skills. They will be having a trial in about a month, if they don't figure things out before then.It's a lot more work to make a character than I expected. But I have the bare bones for my LN human rogue Mortimer (working title) now!
Mortimer has a background as a barrister. I thought that appropriate for a party somehow suspected of a crime. I'm thinking he is not exactly working as a lawyer now (perhaps leaving his profession due to... circumstances, or perhaps not being from around here so having no jurisdiction?). Any thoughts how to write my bio in such a way so I can easily fit into the story?

Oh yeah, research is how I manage to make it look like I know stuff about published works. Until 5e came out, I only ever played in homebrew worlds. In my own PBP games, I only fake knowing stuff about the Forgotten Realms. (I mean, I guess by this point I know the Sword Coast pretty well, but I'm no expert on Realmslore. I'm just not adverse to research!)There is a Pathfinder/Golarian wiki, and I know a bit about the world. Let me know what you need if you can't find it. I can also lend you Share to the Inner Sea World Guide (1e) and World of Lost Omens (2e), though most of that info should also be in the wiki.
