Thread for all character creation questions.

Campaign/Character Creation Guide.
1. Characters start at Level 1 using the standard point buy.

2. You can use any of the Core 4e Books:
PH 1,2,3, Races
Powers:Arcane, Divine, Martial 1&2, Primal, Psionic
Eberron Players Guide (I would recommend reading some of this so you get the feeling for the campaign.
Forgotten Realms & Dark Sun Players Guides: Race & Class stuff, Nothing that is specific to the setting like spellscars and the like.
Essentials

3. Using Skype for voice

4. Tokens: DN5/Veggie 2.3

The one this that I caution you on is that I do not own all these books. I can look stuff up, but thats it. Please understand your character because I might not be able to help you. Also, keep in mind that I haven't even looked at any of the Essentials stuff yet so I might have a learning curve on rules changes and such.

As for house rules. I can't think of any right now but if you have any ideas throw them out and we can take a look at them.

The only real changes made that effect non-essentials characters IMO is the new human racial power (they can choose between a third at will or adding a +4 to an attack or skill roll that they failed once a turn), all the races eventually being updated to the pb3 format (a primary and a choice of two secondary stats), magic items based on rarity, and rogues getting sneak attack multiple times a round (but not in the same turn).

The human power is an encounter power, but otherwise, yeah thats pretty much it. Rogues can do SA once per turn, rather than 1/round now. And some new feats. There havent been that many changes (and most of them are in the errata doc anyhow, for a more digest version)

Just a note as I'm sitting here configuring all the travel stuff. I know this is a little diffrent from the way other campaigns are run, so dont worry. I'm not going to blind side you on anything. If there is an obvious weekness in the party, we will work together to get around it. I don't plan on running you guys into a buzzsaw, but you still need to be ready. Also, (little hint) when it comes to your equipment, consentrate on your personal stuff. Obviously before you are sent out you will have time to equip yourself for a specific mission. House Deneith equips their mercenaries before hand (for a modest price of course). Anyone have any questions on anything that I can answer?

I'm assuming from this and other stuff you've posted that you're into resource management then? I'm totally cool with it as a player, but as a DM... God bless you. I never have the patience to manage details. :D

I was planning on using Nature to live off the land for myself, seeing my Ranger as a rather woodsy sort. I'm not sure I can feed a whole party, though.

Looks like it is a hunting time. :D

If you want I have no trouble keeping management of my resources (I have my ammunition built into my token to keep track of how much I have left). Sunrods and such should be relatively easy to keep track of.... food though.... I've never done.... could be interesting.

Food is actually easier then you think. Its not like your breaking it down by meals, you just break it down per day. Even hunting awards per day, and if you hit high enough, for up to five. Like I said, I know alot of it is new to the way most people play, do I'm going to guide you through it at first. I do hope that it doesn't get boring. I did just break it down into skill challenges to speed it up, so heres hopeing.

Plus it gives you a little XP for doing things that you should be doing.
