What official content is specifically available?

My intent was to keep things fairly basic. Core races/classes, basically limited to the PHB and that is taking into account that while there may not be a great deal of supplemental books out there at the moment, they will inevitably come and I do not want to have to sift through it all or have to research other classes or class options.

Are there any cultural restrictions on magic aside from "Don't let others think you are a warlock"?

The use of magic is heavily regulated in more populated areas like cities or towns but less so in frontier regions where the Akashic Order has less of a presence. For the most part magic is not commonplace and is not heavily involved in the lives of commoners.

Most wizards are formally trained at arcane colleges in major cities. Not every city has an arcane college though most will have some form of arcane preparatory school (Akin to a community college) for those who show some arcane talent. In game terms those coming out of preparatory schools are level 1-3 Wizards while those coming out of the arcane colleges are usually level 5-6 (Usually arcane colleges will not accept students lower than level 3). The majority of wizards coming out of these schools wind up working for nobles or wealthy merchants (Who also tend to fund their education as it is fairly expensive)

Wizards are generally looked upon by the common folk with a mixture of respect and fear while those who obtain magic through natural ability or some other source are looked on with mostly fear as they are concerned that Sorcerers and the like lack the discipline that wizards usually learn as part of their training.

It's a pretty broad topic though so if you have more specific questions regarding magic and culture I will answer as best I can.

-A Paladin (Not an inquisitor) is among the characters I'm considering. I noticed that they're apparently all functionaries of the church. Does this come with any restrictions on the choice of oath? Also, what would a Paladin's role likely be in a frontier town like clearwater?

There is no restriction on the choice of oath for Paladins. A paladin may be sent to a frontier region like Clear Creek to further advance the presence or goals of the Imperial Church, to protect and guard the church and the priests/religious there, to eliminate a perceived threat to the faith or a combination of these things.

Attached Image QUOTE
Do you allow for tweaks to existing backgrounds and/or the creation of new ones?

I don't necessarily have an issue with this as long as it is reasonable and doesn't lead to an overpowered character somehow. In fact there are some features associated with backgrounds that I don't care for as they may not apply in all settings.

Attached Image QUOTE
-Also speaking of backgrounds, another character being considered would be a soldier who (Honorably) left the army to pursue another life. Any setting specific details of particular import there?


Nothing that comes to mind off the top of my head.

I think I've settled on a paladin, and as I flesh out the details I'm leaning towards him having been raised as a "Child of the church", with previous history unknown.

As you are between chapters, it occurs to me that his bond or reason to come to Clearwater could easily be tied up in the next threat the party has to deal with. I'd be happy to serve as part of the initial plot hook if you are so inclined. Let me know if you want to do something of the sort, if not I'll just come up with something suitable.

Hi again yeah I didn't see a response for a few days so I assumed you weren't looking for new people. OK well looks like you have another so if someone drops out keep me in mind please. But yes all wizards should be feared and respected at the same time!

Prospective character, awaiting approval before punching into forum tool. I did make one tweak to the stuff provided by Acolyte, swapping one language prof out for proficiency in Smith's Tools, thinking that learning to make/maintain his gear would be of more import to a crusader in training than another language learned (Besides, knowing lots of languages as a low Int character just feels wrong) Forgot to ask, but I'm assuming I'm starting at L1 with base starting gear and will need to play catch up.

Character history and personality are in flux, but as I'm currently envisioning him a slightly naive protector of the living. Both inspiring to others and kind, but badly lacking in the rationality needed to be a true leader. While he willingly serves the church, he is more interested in spreading the goodwill of the Maker than the authority of church officials (Though he's particularly eager when those interests at least appear to align) Likewise, while he's sworn to oppose the destroyer, and will zealously fight the servants of the same, by comparison to his peers he rarely levels accusations of such without direct proof.

The Maker says...

You can start at Lv 2; I do not track XP characters level up when appropriate based on the game. The character looks good although if you wouldn't mind breaking down for me which two ability scores you increased by 1 per the variant rule and which skill you gain proficiency from in as well using the variant. I assume the Polearm Master feat came from this variant rule.

Also, if your Constitution modifier is +1 I think you should have 11hp rather than 12 at level one (But I have been wrong on this once before so…). For your HP when you level up roll the hit dice but if you roll below average (In this case below a five) then take the average instead. If you roll above average then keep that roll. In other words you shouldn't gain less than 6hp based on your constitution modifier but you could gain 11hp if you roll the max.

You are otherwise accepted and free to generate your character. Check in at the support thread for discussion on the next adventure.

I think I will start working on a character in case you get another opening. That's part of the fun.

There is one player that I have not received definite verification from that he plans on continuing; either way you are free to post a character here and keep an eye on the game to see if something opens up down the road.

I boosted Strength and Charisma via the human bonuses. Perception was from VarHuman, religion and insight were from acolyte background, athletics and persuasion chosen from paladin list. PM feat was indeed gained via VarHuman bonus.

And yes, I should have 11 HP, good catch there. I made a last second change to stats (Dropping Con for a little more Wisdom), and forgot to adjust that particular number while messing with the skills Wisdom affects. By the time I noticed, I was no longer able to make edits.
