As with any new "system", Brom, I think I might need a bit more information. For instance, it would probably be helpful for me to know roughly how "experienced" our characters are. Will we have a lot of ranks in which to buy skills? Or are we fairly inexperienced?
Also, I think I would find it helpful to have the list of skills with a brief description of what each one does. A bit of information on how the various magic forms work would be good too.
Finally, a little more information on what you are hoping to see as far as the "party" is concerned would be good. Are we just getting together for the first time, and we've somehow randomly been called together? Have we been adventuring together for a long time? Or are we "friends" like the adventuring group from the Dragonlance Books (maybe we haven't all adventured together recently, but we have in the past) and we've come together again after a time at the call of someone?
I know you said that you're not really planning on getting this game going until after CP, but the information requested above would be very helpful to me. I've got lots of "ideas" of characters I'd love to play... I'm just not sure I can create them in this system.

Check the Q&A thread folks. You'll find answers there.
I'd be interested in taking on a mage-type character. Either human or sylvari.
If the character is human, I imagine a male, low-key-ish type wizard. Ayrn gave me an idea of run his namesake character, the owner of the Tavern at the Edge of Bayris and a wizard of some renown.
I'm not sure I really want to play someone else's namesake character... but something similiar to what Ayrn has suggested sounds cool to me!
If the mage were a sylvari, I'd probably go with a female, and make the concept closer to the Beguiler class in 3.5 PHB2. She'd be a roguish enchanter/ illusionist, probably with some nobility about her. I also have Arwen, from LotR, in my mind.
There's a few of my ideas. The main theme is that I'm looking at creating an arcane magic-user.
