Character Restrictions

The following are the restrictions for creating characters in this campaign:

  1. No content from Eberron, Forgotten Realms, or Dark Sun. 
  2. No Wizards.  You will find Wizards to be too unpopular to play.  Other arcane classes can be used, but your background cannot have you prominent in society.
  3. If you wish to play an Elf or Eladrin ... let's talk.  Elves are very unpopular in this campaign.  Half-Elves are playable, but will be treated as second-class citizens and outcasts.
  4. Half-Orcs, Shifters, Githzerai, Minotaurs, Shardminds, Wildens, Bladelings, Bugbears, Bullywugs, Drow, Duergar, Githyanki, Gnolls, Goblins, Hobgoblins, Kenkus, Kobolds, Orcs, Revenants, and Shadar-kai will be treated as Monsters, and therefore will be virtually unplayable in this campaign setting.  Excluded unless you can make a compelling argument.
  5. Dragonborn, Tieflings, Devas, Gnomes, Goliaths, and Shifters can be played, but will have a harder time being trusted than Dwarves, Halflings, and Humans.  Your background will not overlap with Dwarves, Halflings, or Humans.
  6. Choose 1 "General" background for a benefit.  More backgrounds for flair if you like, but "General" only.  Only one background will give you an attribute benefit.
  7. Ability scores from "Auto Pick" or "Use and Array".  No "Roll Dice" ... sorry, Charlie.
  8. Choose Skills as you like.  Your society though is likely to be one with very little amassed knowledge.
  9. Choose any legal feats, powers.
  10. Level your character to 2nd.  Update feats, powers, etc as required.
  11. Reset gold to "level appropriate".  You get up to 5 "Adventuring Gear" items for free.  But you can never sell them back for gold or trade them.  Sorry Chuck.  Just grab what would make sense for someone going on a long journey.  No mounts, unless you took Mounted feats.  And if you took Mounted feats … seriously?
  12. Add magic items: 1 each of level 2 max, level 1 max.  You can use your Level-Appropriate gold to buy additional magical items.
  13. No Wonderous Items.  No Artifacts.  No Intelligent items.  No Boons.
  14. Please use a fantasy-themed name for your character.
  15. Save with YourName_CharacterName_level in the file name and either send me a copy to have on file or bring game day.
  16. It will make leveling quicker if you have planned out a couple of levels in advance.  You can save them as separate files if you wish.
  17. Make a backup character, one level lower than your main.  Magic items are Level+1, Level, Level-1 max, and Level-appropriate gold.
  18. I reserve the right to drop a very, very big rock on your min-maxed character.
