Not necessary but you might find it useful.

Might I ask, are we starting with the basic 40xp, fresh out of gempukku?  Or are we slightly more experienced than that?

Another question worth asking, is there an Advantage limit?  Some folks say 15, others don't care as long as they're not super power game-y and make sense for the character.  Just figured I'd ask!

Also, are we allowed to roll on the Heritage Table?  Always a fun little way to add some flavor to a character.  Mainly because I always seem to get fun disadvantages ;)

I'm going to say no. While it would be fun to see what would happen I have no way of knowing if everyone has access to The Great Clans book and, more importantly, if they'd want to use the heritage tables.

If you want you can roll on the heritage tables for the flavor text, not taking any advantages or disadvantages but the flavor text that comes with it. For example: “Oh my character comes from a shameful family!” Maybe your character wants to restore their family’s honor or separate themselves from their family as much as possible.

Basic forty experience points characters are what I want. And while I would like for the characters to be young I do have one who already has a wife and three kids so I'm not going to force age you are.

Not an issue at all!  Yeah, I think I'm going to roll on the thing purely for fluff reasons.  I mean why not add another layer of complexity to the character eh?

Edit: Oh this is perfect!

While researching powerful new magics, your ancestor disappeared in a fl ash of light, taking his notes with him. The Kitsu have determined his soul never made it to Meido. No one has been able to duplicate his work or determine where he has gone. Your family is obsessed with hunting for him; you gain the Consumed by Knowledge Disadvantage

Are we restricted on any books allowed for usage in character creation?

In reply to Isawa Kazan (msg # 6):

You can use options from other books, just not something that could help or hinder you randomly like the heritage tables.

The reason I'm not using the heritage tables is because of the benefits characters could gain from using it that other characters don't because they don't have access to it.

This site has a bunch of resources, mostly character sheets and things to help. The Heritage Table is down near the very bottom. Still understand if you don't want to use it though, Your call.
