All I ask is that you play well with others (no rules lawyering, treat each other decently and help each other out), and give me a 24 hour notice if you plan on canceling so I can tell the others. I try really hard to be helpful in between games, but during a game I try to be dramatic (rarely fudging the rules both for and against the players) and fair. I even crack stupid Dad jokes, and I love it when my players back each other up during the game; heroic behavior. I don’t allow real world issues, like politics, whatever. One of us is gay, but nobody cares. All the PC’s are designed to cover for what the group lacks so that the group can handle anything. I have TONS of prewritten campaigns that I sometimes alter a tiny bit so as to make more sense.
I do have attribute adjustments for male and female characters, and they’ve resulted in more female PC’s. There are a few races that are not subject to the attribute adjustments. I even have a large list of official races. If you give me parameters for what you want, I will make suggestions accordingly based on what I know. There are brief house rules pertinent to each class, so we normally make characters with me present. I am not gonna use a vtt. I do sometimes draw out a map if there are lots of enemies or the terrain is varied.
Summoner (and Unchained version), Gunslinger, Arcanist, Bloodrager, Brawler, Hunter, Investigator, Shaman, Skald, Slayer, Swashbuckler, Warpriest (this is all of the Advanced Class Guide), Vigilante, Shifter, all mythic paths are banned permanently.
Half-elves, Half-orcs are banned permanently; they are too mechanically similar to humans and don’t make sense genetically.
Note that I never allow 3rd party (non Paizo) material (unless I honestly think they are balanced and appropriate but you gotta ask first), and I do not allow material that I don’t have access to personally.
The various animal-people races are banned unless the setting allows for it, just like the Ninja, Samurai, Antipaladin (evil aligned only), Assassin (evil aligned only) classes.
Kitsune might be workable, but their human form only lasts a minute per level, and it takes a standard action to activate, although you can use this as often as you wish. Unless you use a hell of a high Disguise check, or the rest of the party is just fine with you being an animal and you have limited contact with human society, you are screwed.
List of all the classes I regularly use:
Warriors: Unchained Barbarian, Unchained Monk, Paladin, Fighter, Ranger (and possibly Samurai if the setting is right), Cavalier
Skill Monkeys: Bard, Ranger, Unchained Rogue
Divine casters: Druid, Cleric, Oracle, Inquisitor
Arcane casters: Sorcerer, Wizard, Witch, Alchemist, Magus
Psychics: Kineticist, Medium, Mesmerist, Occultist, Psychic, Spiritualist
We already have a Rogue, Wizard, Bard, and melee Fighter in the group, and we need a Cleric, having darkvision, as well as a very good Stealth skill. I can handle up to 2 more players. Perhaps a good 6th would be a bowyer Fighter, or a Sorcerer that does distance damage. Currently we are 9th level as of 11/15/23
No severe emotional problems, this is meant to be escapist fun, not therapy.
