Character Creation

Player Creation Rules

(For any level) Starting players must have an effective character level of 5. Starting gold for Equipment is 15,750gp as per below.

Allowed Sources: Any Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (PRG) book. Pathfinder SRD. Some 3.5/3.0 material (show me what you have in mind and I may approve it with or without modification.)

Stats: 4d6 re-roll 1’s. Choose the highest 3 dice. This means at absolute worst, you can end up with an unmodified stat at 6. This tends to have an average of 13.4336.

Race: Any from the Pathfinder Core Book/SRD, The Pathfinder Bestiaries, The D&D 3.5 Monster Manuals(MM) 1-5, The Races series of books, Libris Mortis, & Unearthed Arcana. The Race must have a level adjustment (CR) lower than starting level. I want players to possess character level(s). Undead are valid choices. Undead characters gain an intelligence score if they otherwise didn’t have one. If the undead race doesn’t normally have an intelligence score roll stats as normal then modify it by -8. Undead characters always earn 1d12 for hit points for their racial Hit Dice (HD).

Templates: If you so desire, I invite you to get creative with this. Templates must be approved.

Classes: Any from Pathfinder. Other sources are allowed, but must be approved on a case by case basis. Any odd choices will be shared with the group.

Hitpoints: Starting HP will not be the normal maximum of the class HP die(d?) + constitution(CON) mod. Starting hit points will be (CON + the maximum die value for that class(d?)). each level gained after first will add the normal (d? + CON mod) To the character’s HP total. Instead of rolling, players have the option to take 1/2 of their hit die instead of rolling. This half will be rounded up every other level gained. First level undead characters will receive(Max(1d12) + CHA) if they lack a constitution score (almost all undead do).

Feats: Any from Pathfinder. Others are allowed, but again, must be approved on a case by case basis. If a feat appears in some other source and in the Pathfinder Core book, we will only be using the Pathfinder core book’s version of the feat.

Alignment: Any. Please coordinate with other players.

Deity: Any. Picking a deity not on the list usually means that your Deity is neither as powerful nor as prevalent as the ones on the list. This can cause consequences in game. In case it needs to be said, deities are not required by any means…

Equipment: If starting level is above first, then you have gold equal to the wealth by player level wealth table in the Pathfinder Core book times 1.50. The most expensive single item you may have is equal to half of that amount. This is more of a guideline. I am willing to ignore this stipulation this if you’re set on a specific item and fit it into your backstory well. Again, this will be dealt with on a case by case basis. I’ll be looking over everyone’s inventory before play begins. Non-standard magic items are available, but tend to be harder to come by unless they are specifically commissioned (which is definitely doable).


Here’s a link to The Pathfinder SRD Equipment.


Item creation is allowed and there will be some downtime for creation. Alternate Creation systems possible, we can talk through this if need be. Black powder weapons are available. They are very rare/expensive.


In addition, if you would like recommendations as to equipment or anything else, just ask. I will be happy to help.
