I think Mechtaur was sorta volunteering, but he hasn't explicitly said he'll be the first DM, so I don't want to just dump everything on him.

I'm not ready to DM yet, I still have a lot to learn.

Yeah, it was a terrible idea anyway.

I guess if absolutely nobody else feels up to it, I could DM. It's just that I've only ever been successful when DMing beginners who knew even less about the game than I did. My knowledge of 3.5 is mostly limited to basic core stuff, and when I've run Pathfinder I've had even less to go on. Even with just the core material, I didn't do very well at keeping track of the value of treasure items and figuring out basic economics in the campaign world (rarity of magic items, gp limit of towns).

Add to that the difficulty of figuring out how to run a game online, and that's what I'm up against. But if there's no other choice, I could still do it. Just don't expect it to be perfect or even comparable to someone with more knowledge of the system.

Why not consult the PRD whenever a problem comes up? After all, it's not like it's a tome of Eldritch Lore.

Alright, I'm going to be going for a Dwarven Monk. So, that would be +4 Intelligence to these scores I've decided to use my points on. In addition, the racial modifiers mean I get -2 charisma.

Strength: 10
Constitution: 5
Intelligence: 4
Dexterity: 5
Wisdom: 7
Charisma: 2

As you see, Charisma gets the shaft which leaves me with 3 points left. Those 3 go into Strength, and are added to the racial modifiers to come out to 10 strength. Thankfully, I'm not playing Paladin or I would be pretty shitty.

I'm willing to DM for Pathfinder, but as I stated before I haven't touched the subject in a while. So, don't be too surprised if things aren't exactly the smoothest for a bit.

If everyone is fine with that, just say so and we can look into getting started.

I'm game as soon as I find out what races are availible.

Ironbite-also Madman's scores are the worst I've ever seen in a 25 point buy

Works for me. I'll get my elf druid written up shortly.

@Madman: A dwarf, huh? I foresee some intra-party arguing.

Edit: I meant Madman, not Ironbite. Sorry.

I'm... not familiar with a buy system... can someone explain?

I was thinking a Human Cleric, and I've got an idea for their backstory and aims that will hopefully be interesting enough, but I'm having a bit of a problem. Namely, what are Pathfinder's gods? Are they the same as 3.5's gods, or are they different? Who's the dominant "good" god? Basically, who's the Pelor equivalent?
