Character Creation Guidelines

  • This will be a Pathfinder game. You can use the guidelines here for making a character (you’ll also find starting gold and HP info, and character sheets). Please also create a sheet here on Obsidian Portal as well.
  • Make a 1st level character using any of the core, base, or alternate classes EXCEPT for Gunslinger and Antipaladin.
    • Please avoid content from 3rd party publishers (3PP), modules, or other non-core resources.
    • If you MUST use something you made or found elsewhere, run it by me first and we can hammer something out.
  • You may use any core race.
    • I may be open to characters using the “Other Races” column, run it by me and we can see if it fits.
  • Take full starting hit points.
    • HP advancement will be either half of the hit die or by a roll.
    • If rolling, do so in the presence of the DM. You may spend 1 hero point to reroll.
  • Take two traits.
    • You must pick from two different categories. You cannot select campaign traits.
  • Take one hero point
    • Additional hero points will be earned once per level, or for exceptionally heroic acts (facing near-certain death to save a comrade, buying the DM a sandwich, etc.).
    • If you write roughly half a page of backstory for your character to connect him to the world, I will give you an additional hero point.
    • If you write roughly half a page detailing an organization, culture, city, country, or something else interesting about the setting, I will give you an additional hero point.
  • Provide how and why you joined the group, and why you will STAY with the group. You may use the forum to discuss your characters’ shared histories in-depth.
