This reminds me. I need to tell y'all some things that need to be put in your backstory:
•How you acquired your current equipment
•Some vague or detailed description of testing your mettle against the world from the Level Adjustment (what happened that caused you to gain levels of whatever class you had in your LA?)
•For each feat/ability you have, be able to describe what your character does to have that ability or did to figure out it was possible (For example, a swashbuckler with Acrobatic Charge could say years of climbing, parcour to runaway from those he stole from, and so on let him figure out how to charge over difficult terrain). I don't want some unexplained, optimized character running around. I consider choosing feats/abilities based on what would be the most beneficial for future quests that would be unrealistic for the PC to suddenly level up and just have with no explanation.
•A personality. Make your character fun and/or interesting to RP with. As long as everybody doesn't do this, I don't see anything wrong with being a stereotype of your race.
1.) No, they already get their own stuff. It's not really magic or anything, but it's still something more. If anything, monk is about using as little as possible other than the body you were born with to rise against challenges and concentrate on philosophies and stuff. In this campaign setting, monks are most likely becoming monks to get away from all the magic hocus pocus going on.
2.) No, you don't start with that gold. I said you don't start with gold, but you get to start with 3d6x1000 gp worth of items.
3.) That really just depends on the character you have. Id have to see what you want to do, bla bla bla. Depending on the item, I may or may not require you to craft it. I honestly want to avoid crafting items so there won't be conflicts in this XP system, but if they really want to craft items, then I guess they can have one or two, depending on what they're crafting, if they meet the prerequisites, etc.
4.) That would be OR. I don't want any 18 sextuple juggernauts running around just yet.
5.) No, I'm not putting a house rule in a game unless if it's in the list. I'm probably not going to use ELS again until I see how it goes in Relistan 1.
6.) If you mean classes like the Templar, then no, probably not. That requires too much discipline. Hence the name "Discipline". If you can give me a solid argument that your class fits in this setting, then I'll OK it.
7.) Yeah, those races are fine as long as their LA doesn't exceed +7. I'd like everyone to have at least 1 level of an actual class before starting the game.
Are you guys full, or do you have some space that's available? I'm interested in joining up for a game. If there's space, I'll read up on everything, and be able to fire questions to get everything set.
Your Recruitment Requirement is for Active Players, so I am informing you to go ahead and replace my Character with another Player who will be Active in Posting!
Some things have come up this week that require my attention for the foreseeable future, so I have to let this game go before I get started, as I only have room in my schedule to play in one game at the present time!
Hey, I'm just wondering how active this is, as I don't want to invest too much time making a character backstory if it's not allowed because of book restriction. Is there a list of books, or no? Tried to ask a while ago (I'm looking in Book of Exalted Deeds) and didn't get an answer. I have the character made up, but I haven't made a story yet, just in case it's not allowed.
