There's adventure to be had on the high seas when a group of press-ganged strangers seizes a ship and becomes embroiled in the plots and politics of the Shackles—an infamous island chain dominated by pirate warlords. But as these new swashbucklers make names for themselves, rival scalawags, enemy navies, legendary sea monsters, and the infamous Hurricane King himself seek to see them walk the plank. Who will survive when there's glory to plunder?
This will be my first foray into running a full Adventure Path and as such I'll probably run it pretty much by the book.
Post your application in the following format:
Physical/Personality Description: A paragraph or more (2 max please) describing your character's physical appearance and personality. If you want to put secrets into your characters personality you can "private tag" them in this area. Include how your character reacts to stress/danger, how your character dresses while adventuring, during down-time, etc and how he/she generally deals with others socially.
Background/Writing Sample: This doesn't need to be anything crazy in terms of background (you're level 1 adventurers!) but at least a couple paragraphs. More important is the writing sample. Please discuss, in-character, how your applicant managed to get captured by the crew of Captain Harrigan. Don't worry about having knowledge of specific members of Harrigan's crew (or the Captain himself for that matter) or the Wormwood (his ship). Just discuss how you got yourself vamboozled and captured (important information like where you were, what you were doing, etc.).
PLEASE POST APPLICATIONS IN THE APPLICATION FOLDER ON THE GAME FORUM, NOT IN THIS THREAD PLEASE

Creation will be standard for a character starting level 1 using an 18 point buy as per the point buy rules in the PFRPG Core Rulebook. Average gold by class. Yes create your character with starting gear as it will be returned within the first adventure. One trait is acceptable as well.
As of now I believe I have access to all of the character-creation applicable books to go crazy. Please realize though that I'm a little old school with regard to characters I'll like so don't come up with things that aren't well-grounded in Golarion's background (I realize that still allows a lot of craziness, but try to make them feel real!). Also guns are perfectly acceptable as long as you are ok with their relative sparseness within the Shackles.
Feel free to PM with any questions but know that I will likely post the answer here for all to see (it cuts down on repeating myself).
I will close the advertisement thread on August 12th at midnight or with at least three days notice if interest seems to be drying up.
