Character Discussion & Creation
This thread is to discussion characters and start creation on your character. All players are asked to help with any new player joining us. Players should not discuss the setting in detail or the current campaign unless its directly part of the creation process.

Once a firm decision is made on a character it should be moved to the character sheet. I will need the name chosen so I can give you the rest of the access of RPoL's wonderful hosting tools available to us here.

I have a HTML sheet that will be used. If you are not familiar with this I can simply do this for you (when done with your creation) and also help show you how to use HTML. Once this is done it will become finial for the duration of the character.

Once you have chosen a Region, House and Character Name your Discussions will be moved to that Group and you will be able to discuss more about your ideas in the House Planning thread, - So that the information can stay within your chosen group.

YOU CAN NOT PLAY EVIL CHARCTERS

 The character you create most be able to join the group as a whole or in some way. At some point players may choice to venture off for a solo or separate into more then one group. This is completely OK.

 Evil for now will be defined as characters with social disorders that they can not control their actions or loyal servants of some type to darkness or the underworld.

 I understand this is a tuff topic so we can use the open discuss thread to work on this more and I will change this post to reflex the same.

So far one player has picked a Hoplite - Imperial Warrior
This is one of three home brew classes for the Kalamar game and players can pick from

https://sites.google.com/site/.../alt-classes/hoplite

Also if a player would like to be nobility they can take feat Noble Born free
just remember that you can not be the first born with rights to take over a house or thorne.
Also you can not pick the imperial house.

I'm leaning towards a Barbarian Beserker, probably of Fhokki or Dejy ancestry.

dejy are a mix or indian/desert people
very cool lands can be an interesting character

Fhokki are your northern style and very fit for the barbarian. and beserker.

Im sure both can be played well in the class. and very different in RPing style

In KoK players are heroes and their stats reflect the same. This means that a player is better than average and there stat should reflect that, normally a player character will have a stat no lower than 10, but to keep the game from becoming high fantasy no higher than 20.
The player has a few chooses for stats, they can use the 17 down format or roll 4d6 keeping 3 anything lower than total 10 becomes a 10. In all cases a 2 for 1 rule applies. 2 for 1 rule applies to all form of character creation to allow the PC to mold his or her character into the vision that he or she wants without mega-gaming.

What is the 2 for 1 rule?
After placing a number (regardless of which form used) to a stat, you may subtract 2 points form a stat to add 1 point to another, all racial and character creation modification cannot total greater than 20. Or go lower than 10 without OK form the GM. Racial adjustment are done last, and still follow the Min of 10 and max of 20 for any stat.

17 down format? Never heard that before. I'd hazard to guess start with a 17 and then each stat is 1 less?

Some more info on the 17 down format.
You can also use the 2 for 1 rule.

You can place the numbers on any stat (17,16,15,14,13,12) you can make your intelligence 17 or charisma. Also you if you want an 18 just take one stat and lower by 2 and increased a different stat by 1. (This is the 2 for 1 rule).

My choice is for a human druid, a gnarly-looking fellow with questionable hygiene.
