I usually have a separate thread about rules and character creation and blah blah blah. I'm going to try a thing, though, and not do that.

The rules are simple: be generous and understanding with your peers. Don't be uncouth. I have no hesitations about righting the course of a game by removing a bad actor, but I have not had to do so. I doubt I will need to this time, either.

Build your characters at level 3. Post a link to them when you're done.

Re-post your application as the top post in a character thread, in the Characters folder. I prefer these threads be public, so use secret tags if there's stuff you would like to keep private.

Let me know if you have questions!

Splendid! Thanks for selecting me!


Let's start with the gritty details for character building.

Point-buy or rolling? Do you want us to roll hitpoints for level 2 and 3 or take an average?

Will you allow custom backgrounds? Rhessa is a Sailor (Pirate), but I'm not sure the others' background are as defined.



Hi everyone! Looking forward to playing with you all!

Hey good questions! Let's do point-buy because it keeps the power level balanced; I'll let you choose whether you roll or take an average on your level 2 and 3 hit points.

I'm amenable to custom backgrounds but I might require convincing.

One other note: in general, if you've not posted and we're waiting on just you, I'll make sure you've had a couple days before I advance the battle. I'll try to do you proud, but I'll try to keep the game moving, also. It would be fantastic if we could never have an argument about that.

Working on sheet now. For equipment, are we just using starting equipment for class/background from PHB, or are we going to buy equipment with a set GP amount, (or some other system)?

Note on my character sheet: I treat the "Spells Per Day" column as "known", and the "spells known" column as "Spell slots per day", because it makes more sense that way in 5th edition - Rhessa knows 4 spells, regardless of which levels. Plus a few spells from her origin.

Elemental Evil spells are marked with (ee). Bonus spells known are marked with a *.

Huh, I dunno about the starting gold thing. How's that usually work? PF has a nice system for it, this would be a place where my D&D knowledge is not stellar. Let me consult the tomes....

Aha, the DMG says "normal starting equipment" for characters between levels 1-4. So, take what you get from your backgrounds. If you are looking for something specific in addition to that, we can talk about it, but I guess 5e is kind of skimpy with the magic items?

Ok. Optional rule for starting gold is at the start of the equipment section of the PHB. Else wise you get what your class and chosen background give. Usually most people do that but for starting at Lvl 3, you could adjust what is given to account fit the experience already gained. I think there is a section in the DMG that has a table with various values depending on the starting level and magic level in your campaign but I don't remember where it is off the top of my head.

Ninjad me there. Yea, in general magical items are rarerer than in part editions. Though creating then say compared to 2nd ed can be done at much lower levels.

Seems like a suspect decision to me. Thankfully I'm mature enough now that "winning" isn't the point of the game. Ten-year old me is disappointed, though.

Lol. 10 year old me figured out that winning wasn't always as fun as just screwing with all the other players.

Anyway, I am excited to see how this game turns out!
