Character Creation Rules

  1. Pathfinder Rules – Core Rule Book Only.
  2. Medium experience point progression.
  3. No evil Characters.
  4. The game will start in the country of Grinadier.
  5. All characters will need to be from Grinadier or have lived in Grinadier for the last 2 years prior to starting. Further, all characters will have spent the last year in the Grinadier army, a requirement for all who live in Grinadier.
  6. Players will start at level 1, but will advance quickly, despite the medium point progression.
  7. All variable rolls will be rolled with the group (hit points, etc.)
  8. Hit points will be calculated as follows: Roll once with a minimum of ½ the class hit die rounded down.
  9. Pathfinder point buy system: 20 points
  10. Each character gets an additional 2 points for the point buy system if they provide a written background for their character. Due to the lack of time, if you promise me a background by the next game day, you can go ahead and add the additional 2 points for your point buy.
  11. Requirements for background:
  • I am not expecting riveting, well written stories (although that would be appreciated)
  • I need at least three names in the background: a mentor-type (could be a parent, a trainer, etc…..someone who has influenced your character and who your character looks up to); a friend (if you wish, you could join with one of the other players and the character could be your friend – additionally, a sibling would work as well); an enemy (this does not have to be a villain – could just be a person you didn’t get along with, someone who vied for the same girl/guy, etc).
  • A description of your family unit and what they do for a living, with names.
  • I would appreciate some sort of hook in the background, preferably something you don’t completely understand (e.g. your dad left one day and never returned – you have no idea what happened).
  • No length requirements, but I want to know who your character is before we start so what you provide must achieve that goal.
  • If you are not a writer, then the story can be given in bullet-points.
  • The more non-player characters you incorporate into the story, the more information I have to flesh out the world with your character being an integral part of that world.
  • If you provide no or little information, do not get upset when the story tends to revolve around those characters who provided me with a rich, detailed background and several plot hooks.
