Character Creation

Ability Scores

Ability scores will be rolled. – roll 2 sets with 2d6+6 for each ability. Stats that are too high or to low maybe adjusted by the DM. I want balanced stats with a random feel.

Races

All Characters must be human

Origins

Pick you place of birth Origins. You character can come for the streets, the church, merchant background, military, or minor nobility. If noble he should not have any titles himself though or in line to claim any. If military he needs to be no longer in the military. If you wish to give your character wealth it should be tied up in such a way that you don’t have any real access to it though. He should exhibit some characteristics of the Byronic hero.

  • a strong sense of arrogance
