I'm interested but my time availability tends to be inconsistent. Creating the character is the hard bit for me and I have great difficulty getting that part done. (One of the reasons I am so disappointed about the loss of Eclipse, because I was really pleased with Mouse, his character and backstory were awesome and it looks like nobody will ever know it now).
I think if the game is going to be combat-focused I should probably go with something in the Monk direction, because that's what I'm most familiar with. Probably not a gnome, this time - the size penalties are only worth the RP benefits if the RP is a core part of the campaign!
