The first boss battle in the old-school RPG Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is the character creation menu. It is as intimidating as any multi-limbed demon you will face.

There are 25 categories to choose from, some of which are subdivided into six prototypes. You cannot choose certain prestige professions until you level up and meet certain requirements, anyway, these will appear during the character creation process in case you want to build around one of them. You can also choose race, ethnic tradition, background, religion, skills, expertise, and perhaps an animal companion with its own profession, skills, and expertise.

At the end of this process, you will most likely end up with a character who is completely unsuitable for getting what you want from Righteous Fury, and will want to restart or readjust a few hours later. Maybe they are too weak to deal with the challenge of core difficulty. If you are enthusiastic enough about it, maybe they partnered with their early peers and feel redundant, maybe their ability is not as good as you imagined and it is a bit bad. In contrast, it seems easy to deal with some big water elements or shadow demons.
