Character Creation

Character Statistics
As we have decided on a slightly higher power base, please use the following stat line, distributed how you wish among attributes:
18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 10

No evil alignments.

Character Level
Characters will start at level 5.
Maximum hit points can be rolled, or you can use the following calculation:
((Max HD+ Con modifier) X 1) + ((Avg. HD + Con modifier) X 4)
ie. Max hit points 1st level, half hit dice (round-up) every level after 1st

Inherent Magical Ability
All players start with the Magic Initiate feat for free.
In addition, users gain a 2nd level spell from the same list at 5th level, which follows the same criteria for the 1st level spell.
Note: These spells must be learned separately if they are to be part of your normal spell list – the inherent spells cannot be cast using normal spell slots, but do not require material components, though all somatic and verbal requirements are instinctual.

Alternate use – some people have managed to internalized their magic use – this is common among cultures or societies that believe magic is abhorrent. By giving up the Magic Initiate feat can be traded in for a +1 stat modifier at 1st level, and +1 stat modifier at 5th level.

Ability Score Progression
Per normal, ability score improvement through levels can be traded for a feat.

All races will be allowed.
Gith and standard races with Shattered variants are not from the Shattered Islands, and can be played, but will not have include the Inherent Magical Ability. They have arrived either through divine intervention or planar travel.

Starting Equipment
You start with 500 gold, plus the following:
Starting equipment of your class.
A horse (or pony)
5 healing potions
