Gun & Roses
I only have a few rules
when it comes to character creation and these evolve with time and my
mood. These are the rules I currently use but do not be surprised if you
see them change from time to time.
1. Attributes are rolled
used the 4D6 Drop Lowest method (the standard D&D 3E method).
2. I allow anything that
is found in any product published by Wizards of the Coast although I do
ask for prior approval on some things.
3. I allow anything that
is found in any product published by one of the many companies producing
D20 products, however, everything that comes from a non-WOTC source 'must'
be approved by me prior to character creation.
4. All characters begin
at Level 1.
5. Any monster race may
be used as a player character race but it must be approved by me prior to
6. I do allow the
optional Level 0 Multi-Classing rule found in the Dungeon Master's Guide
(in fact, Tyro Redwood began as a Level 0 Fighter/Level 0 Wizard).
7. Templates are
permitted but they must be approved by me prior to character creation.
8. Every player character
must spend at least one skill point in either a Craft or a Profession. No
one emerged from their mother's womb ready to battle dragons and I assume
that everyone spent some time doing something else before setting out on
the open road.
