Please let me have details of your character's name, race and class (only) initially. This will allow me to set up your character sheet, which I will then share with you so you can complete the rest of the details.

In reply to DM (msg # 2):

Character A:
Ah, with those rolls . . . I'm only good to be a fighter.  Race and Name depend on whether you utilize level limits for non humans with a single class.

If yes, I'm Human and my name will be Ralph.

If no, I'm elven (in order to soften that dex penalty) and my name will be Alar.


My aim is to play the game as closely to rules-as-written as is sensible. Therefore non-human level limits do apply. However, my advice would be to not let that overly deter you from playing a non-human character for two reasons:

1. Play-by-post games are much slower than face-to-face games. It is likely to be a long, long time (years) before anyone is troubling the non-human level limits.

2. Realistically, it is more likely than not that 1st level starting characters will die before reaching level limits!

Anyway, for now I have set up your character sheet as Ralph the Human. Under the "Character Details" menu you should be able to link to his character sheet (which is a Google Sheet). You should also be able to edit this sheet. Let me know if you have any difficulties in this regard. If everything is OK, please go ahead and complete your character.

At the moment, anyone with the link to the Sheet can edit it. If you would like me to lock it down so that only you (and I) can edit it (which I would recommend), please send me an email address that I can tie it to via a Private Message.

Now that we know your race and class, I have also rolled for the following:

- Starting age: 16
- Description: Normal
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 182 lbs
- Starting money: 130 gp

OK, that should be all set-up as per the instructions in msg #4 above.

Again, if you would like me to lock down your Google Sheet so that only you can edit it, please PM me an email address I can tie it to.

Also, please let me have the details of Brother Solomon's deity. At this stage there is no existing pantheon in the game, so feel free to create a god or goddess for Solomon to serve.

Finally, your remaining rolls:

- Starting age: 24
- Description: Tall
- Height: 6'3"
- Weight: 189 lbs
- Starting money: 100 gp

Alizain, Sun God. He may have several facets worshiped under different names, acknowledged by some to be parts of a whole and recognized by others as completely different deities. Solomon's sect sees Alizain as the Brilliant Source -- of Truth, of Justice, of Light. Solomon himself is less certain. To him, Alizain's Brilliant Light is harsh, a scorching fire the consumes the unworthy and blinds mortal eyes. Although Solomon serves Alizain, he does so with trepidation and faltering faith that any living thing can survive the Sun God's unrelenting Justice.

My character sheet is completed. I still have a bit of gold which I might like to spend, depending on circumstances, after learning a bit about the nature of the first adventure.
