Character Creation Guidlines

All Characters are to be stored and logged on:

Any clarification required on a particular topic can either be messaged to me or:
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/basics-ability-scores/character-creation

All builds are subject to DM approval and if something is found to be unbalanced will be rebalanced immediately following game (circumstances or power levels may result in complete removal of said broken issue until end of session if to unbalanced).

Heroic Character Creation/ Recreation

Step 1.) Determine starting level/ Mythic level. This will be the average party level -1 and mythic level -1. Note you will be boosted back to party average at the end of your second game with this PC. However if you are making your first PC then starting level is 3 with 0 mythic. Exception to this is if the PC is retired with DM assistance ahead of time.

Step 2.) Ability Scores: 30 point Buy or 4d6 drop the lowest rolled 7 times dropping the lowest again. If you choose to roll you must do so on the Roll20 page, or in some other format I can directly observe

Step 3.) Choose a race: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/races
Choose Traits: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/traits/tools/traits-filter
If your race rp is less then 10 choose 3
If your race rp is 10 to 13 choose 2
If your race rp is 14 to 17 choose 1 trait
If your race rp is 18+ then you get no traits and could face a level adjustment
Custom Races are not permitted. However modifications to an existing race may circumstantially be permitted.

Step 4.) Choose a Class: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes
Check House Rules for modifications, restrictions, or other variables from PF standard.
Additionally I strongly suggest planning ahead for any Prestige Classes you may be interested in taking

Step 5.) Allocate appropriate skill points, choose feats, and Calculate HP (Maximum for roll):
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/feats
Due to the length of the feat list it is strongly advised that you consider coming up with a concept and asking either myself or the assistant DM for something to help you.

Step 6.) Equipment: You get a few things for free!
So to start with you get an appropriate adventuring kit, next you get 1 free masterwork weapon (this is the weapon you where first trained with and that you became and adventurer with you may enchant it or you can just keep it for sentimental value or as soon as the game starts you can sell it your choice), last you get gold base upon level.

You also get a free kit based upon your base class: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment—-final/goods-and-services/tools-kits#table-tools-kits

Don’t forget it is masterwork for free: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment—-final/weapons

Step 7.) Calculate values in appropriate locations. Myself or the assistant DM can help with this if necessary. Including leveling as appropriate

Step 8.) Calculate Mythic Bonuses: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/mythic/mythic-heroes

Step 9.) This step is half optional half non-optional. the non optional portion is as follows: I require you to fill out and submit an answer to a few basic including
1.) What does your character fear most?
2.) Who does your character care most about?
3.) What makes your character unique (two quirks and a flaw)?
4.) What is your characters motivation for becoming an adventures?
5.) Who was your characters mentor, teacher, instructor, or family member that initially linked them into the life of an adventurer instead of taking levels in commoner?

Now before you say oh my character doesn’t have a flaw, or my character cares for no one because they where all killed. The answer is no. Everyone has flaws sometimes it’s pride, sometimes it’s timidness. Your 2 quirks and a flaw are meant to help you roleplay and me indetinfy you most readily. As for caring about someone this doesn’t have to be anything convoluted it could be your pet, a family member. These however are the non-optional background parts, come up with something for each of these questions feel free to make entirely new NPC’s, link other PC’s even dead ones (as long as they wheren’t your own), or use already made NPC’s ie the ones listed on the wiki/ mentioned in passing.

The optional portion is well optional and that consists of a character background, a picture hand drawn or otherwise, making a home for your PC including floor plan description location etc, and possibly even expanding on the wiki. If you do this optional step you will be given free things such as a business, a ship, a legacy weapon, XP, or even mythic points. Now if you get an business or other expensive item then likely you will have to share ownership of it with an NPC, or even another PC because you don’t have the money to outright purchase it yourself (now if you wish to write into your back story that you have in fact purchased it and the gold has been removed from your character that is fine as well but generally businesses, ships, and guilds are exceedingly expensive to build and maintain so this will allow you to start with something normally well beyond your price range.) if it’s a legacy weapon or armor then its power unlocks as you level (no you will not be starting with that +5 vorpal sword but it can turn into it eventually), as for XP this may only put you 1 level above average party level (do not forget generally speaking you will be starting 1 below due to character death ie more pages more xp, as for mythic points don’t ask me to explain it. There is a method behind this madness but the gist is you will be closer to the next mythic level it is unlikely you will ever reach a whole level above everyone else in mythic points unless you go off adventuring without the party. Note what I mean by additions to the wiki, is coming up with an awesome new location and adding it, or adding more details to a location already made. I would prefer is these additions pertained to your characters background but if you have a crazy cool idea for this kick ass dungeon that you want added to the game clear it by me first and you’ll likely get the go ahead but what I will likely ask you to do is come up with an NPC that related to it, link it to a location that i present on the Golarion map as far as plot hooks, and come up with something awesome using GM Notes to add any particular major details that can not be left out.

Monsterous Character Creation/Recreation
Starting Note this character creation process is almost identical to the Heroic one with minor changes.

Step 1.) Determine starting level. This will be the average party level -1. Note you will be boosted back to party average at the end of your second game with this PC.Exception to this is if the PC is retired with DM assistance ahead of time.

Step 2.) Ability Scores: 25 point buy

Step 3.) Choose a race: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/races
advanced and monsterous races are encouraged. Note as more powerful races enter the game less powerful races will be granted Racial Bonuses to keep them on the same power level. Acceptable level adjustments and Racial HD will b determined based upon Heroic Mythic Level (ie as the Heros become mythic the monsters become worse and the bonuses stack up) Racial HD is briefly covered under Step 8.

Step 4.) Choose a Class: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes
Check House Rules for modifications, restrictions, or other variables from PF standard.
Additionally I strongly suggest planning ahead for any Prestige Classes you may be interested in taking

Step 5.) Allocate appropriate skill points, choose feats, and Calculate HP (Roll on D20 or half round up which ever is higher):
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/feats
Due to the length of the feat list it is strongly advised that you consider coming up with a concept and asking either myself or the assistant DM for something to help you.

Step 6.) Equipment: You get nothing for free. Deal with it you damn dirty monster. Your GP is based upon character level + Maximum Starting GP for class divided by 4 round down.

Use this chart to calculate gold: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering#Table-Character-Wealth-by-Level

Step 7.) Calculate values in appropriate locations. Myself or the assistant DM can help with this if necessary. Including leveling as appropriate

Step 8.) You’ll never be mythic however circumstantially to make a goblin comparable with a beholder you may be granted racial HD this is similair to how mythic HD are treated, They don’t qualify you for feats based upon level, they don’t increase caster level, and the bonuses are solely to ensure that the person playing a full vampire doesn’t completely eclipse the person who has kept their goblin alive since game 1.

Step 9.) Any pages of background you write for your goblin will be presented as rewards to your normal PC. The monsters aren’t meant to have individual power levels or really excel as the PC’s do. But rewards will be presented for background, pictures, and additions to the wiki. Note what I mean by additions to the wiki, is coming up with an awesome new location and adding it, or adding more details to a location already made. I would prefer is these additions pertained to your characters background but if you have a crazy cool idea for this kick ass dungeon that you want added to the game clear it by me first and you’ll likely get the go ahead but what I will likely ask you to do is come up with an NPC that related to it, link it to a location that i present on the Golarion map as far as plot hooks, and come up with something awesome using GM Notes to add any particular major details that can not be left out. An additional idea specifically for monsters, is making a lair for your PC. I love the concept and would be happy to incorporate it into the game for you.
