I've got the basic planar structure and outsiders set up, but I need three more prospective players and I need to know what those players want from the campaign.

I've left it open-ended so I can work with it, but the gist is this:

Heat is associated with evil/chaos, and cold with good. The planes are shaped something like a honey dipper, danging over the Sea of Flame-an endless plain of fire and molten rock interrupted only by crackling islands of ash, obsidian, and pumice.

Of course, as a mortal, you don't know this-only that there is a mountain at the center of the world where holy men live, and that there is an edge to the world, far in the distance. The edge of the world is a tropical paradise, and islands are common, making sailing ships popular.

Tech level overall is similar to the Renaissance; there are firearms, but they are inefficient, expensive, and owned largely by governments. Ballistae and various catapults are the norm on privately-owned ships.

Aesthetic can go anywhere. Oriental, Indonesian, European closer to the Roof of the World when it gets colder. The {static} (there are a bunch of them) vary wildly, and are dependent on their biome.

All I need are requests and signs of interest.

Okay.

D&D 3.5 is Dungeons and Dragons, 3rd Edition Revised. 3.0 was broken as {static}, so they made 3.5, which was slightly less broken.

Then, various folks across the internet found out how to break D&D 3.5 worse, so when Wizards of the Coast threw up their hands and made D&D-Flavored MMO: The Tabletop Game (4th Edition) they sold the rights and system from 3.5 to Paizo, who fixed a bunch of problems and sold the remade system plus a few classes and a new setting as Pathfinder.

Planes are like alternate universes, except attached to the Prime Material (i.e. the real world.) They can be {static}, heavens, purgatories, places of a single Classical Element (fire, water, earth, air) but in this case Water is associated with Good, every plane is considered Earth-aligned (and therefore neutral), Fire is associated with evil due to the Sea of Flame below reality, and Air is in all places around reality itself.

Outsiders are anything not native to the Prime Material Plane-angels, devils, some elementals, and weird things like Rasts.

That somewhat clearer?

Offhand? Alchemists and Inquisitors.

I'd need to have a look at my PDF.

Also, Spot/Listen have been rolled together into Perception.

This was all done under the OGL, so it's all available online.
