Rise of the Runelords AE
Rise of the Runelords
Characters will be made using any of the core Pathfinder books, excluding the Advanced Race Guide. Materials from the Core Rulebook, Advanced Players Guide, Ultimate Combat, and Ultimate Magic are acceptable sources.
This means the only races available are Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Half Elf, Half Orc, Halfling, and Human. If you really want to be a race outside of this list and you can make a compelling case for it it will be allowed.
Ability scores will be generated by using a 15 point buy. Here you can find a useful calculator that will calculate your point buy for you. You cannot have more than 1 ability score with a negative modifier (the exception being a negative that occurs after racial modifiers are applied). If you really want to play a character who has excessive negative modifiers speak with me first and we can see what can be arranged.
Characters will be created with two starting traits. These traits are meant to act as minor feats and as a way to give your character a more flavorful background. There are traits found in the Advanced Players Guide and in the Players Guide to RotRl that I previously distributed. A useful online compilation of traits can be found here. Check the source of the traits you choose, as they must come from the sources previously mentioned. Any traits that you select much be explained and incorporated into your background.
It is required to have a background/history for your character. Plenty of information is described in the Players Guide to RotRl, but I can help fit your character fit nice and snug into this campaign and the town of Sandpoint.
