You may use any 5th edition book as a resource for race/ class/ gear/ spells, etc. BUT you MUST own a physical copy of that book, and bring it with you to sessions. (1 book per couple is fine). The campaign will start in Waterdeep, in Faerun, but extra-planar characters are ok for this campaign.
Use the point-buy or starting array method of stat generation
Take starting gear from your class and background
1st level characters at the moment.
We use the alternate encumbrance system
Feats are allowed but do not work when you have disadvantage (some exceptions exist)
Plan on being part of a team. Loners, iconoclasts, renegades, etc. might seem fun on paper but do not work well in a group setting.
Characters have to be submitted to me prior to campaign start.
Feel free to discuss character ideas in the forum. We should be able to communicate here, rather than dedicate a session 0 to character creation.
Stuck for an idea and want a pre-gen? Just let me know.
You will receive coin notes and gear cards. What you have at the table is what your character has on them. Stored items will be held by me.
Certain Unearthed Arcana options are no longer open, so please check with me.
