Maztica, the new world (classic material adapted to 5e)

Game NameMaztica, the new world (classic material adapted to 5e)
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeA distant new discovered land in Faerun.
FlavourLow fantasy with historical elements from precolonial Central America.
Plot SummaryIn the AD&D era, TSR published the campaign expansion boxed set Maztica which probably is an anagram for Mayas and Aztecas two of the main precolonial cultures in the lands today are Mexico and Guatemala.
Same than our world, Maztica had been an unknown land for many years in the Forgotten Realms but finally discovered and explored by the people from the mainland.
This campaign follows the adventurers of a group of explorers in their attempt to find gold and glory in the lands of the new world as they also try to learn a new culture and tame a new territory.
This campaign is based exclusively in the 2nd edition boxed set and the published modules adapted to 5e rules while disregard any lore from the novels.
Rules:
1. You must post at least once a day (weekends is optional but story will move though).
2. Dungeon Master plays with a character.
3. All combat "theater of the mind", maps will be provided though for spacial positioning and exploration.
4. GM needs time and space to develop the story so you are responsible for tracking your own character sheet, character's progression, your equipment, your ammunition, your coins and I will trust you will do it correctly.
5. Races allowed: human, human variant, dwarf, elf, half-elf, halfling and gnome. Classes allowed: All core classes except for Warlock.

Sounds interesting. Just a couple questions:

- What will you require in our applications?
- Any restrictions on what sources we use for creating characters?
- Starting level/wealth, etc.

First than all thanks for the interest and secondly I want to state that it is my first game on this site so I am in a learning curve regarding interface so I hope you have the patience to wait until I get acquainted with the site.
I run pbp games in other site and have experience DMing pbp games but I like fast paced games and that is why I am testing this community (which seems very solid) to see whether here I find a better response as for posting regularity. My job allows me a lot of spare time so I am very attentive of my games so no post be unnecessary but the story moves. People who post every other day will find my games overwhelming as they log in and find too much material to read so I invite people committed, who can chech the game at least twice a day and post at least once a day.
Perhaps someone could explain me if there is a way to add rules to a game.
As for the game, adventurers travel from the mainland of Faerun to Maztica, any class race combination is allowed except for warlock and tiefling, they are banned in all my games.
Any other question let me know.

Wait, so is this any published material for sources or core only and no warlocks or tieflings?

Posting interest either way, since I was not thinking warlock or tiefling but I would like clarification as two of your posts seem to conflict.

The DM posted races are core so that would be any race from PHB but the Tiefling.
The other published material I believe refers to the various sub-classes, spells, etc posted in other official material.
So, unless I'm wrong, all Unearthed Arcana is out as it isn't 'official'.

Elemental Evil was published, to my knowledge, and has some races. As is Volo's Guide to Monsters.

Yup, they have races as does the various Planeshift...which are all official.

But usually when a person writes Core in DND, they mean PHB/DMG/MM as that is what TSR and later WoTC meant by the word.

Of course, I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.


side note: the races I'm not sure if they are official or not is the Tortle and the Grung... I believe they are but both were released thru DMsGuild.

As for races only core races except for tiefling. Choose dragon born at your risk, they were not playable races in AD&D so I don't know how natives of Maztica will react
