Setting/Character Creation
The setting starts in Forgotten Realms and will progress to Barovia.
Character Advancement by Milestones

All Characters start at Level 1

For Character Creation. the following options are available:

Race: all official races and variants

Class: all classes in the PHB are available, as well as their variants in supplemental books and the Unearthed Arcana

Backgrounds: all official backgrounds approved (As this is supposed to be a gothic horror themed game, I would like to see at least one character use the Haunted One background though this is not a requirement)

Alignment: all non-evil alignments are available.

Ability scores: players may choose any one of the following options:

Standard array — distribute the following scores: 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8.

Point buy — distribute scores as described under “Variant: Customizing Ability Scores” on PHB pg. 13.

Roll — roll 4d6 and record the sum of the three highest rolls. Generate six scores this way and distribute as desired. You may reroll if you meet either of the following conditions: the sum of your ability modifiers is 0 or less, or your highest ability score is 13 or less.

Feats: players may take a feat in lieu of an Ability Score Improvement when they level up, as described on PHB pg. 165.

NOTE: All descriptive fields (name, physical characteristics, traits, ideals, bonds, and flaws) are REQUIRED.

If an option being used is not from the PHB, please provide me with book name and page number or a link to the website it is on so I can make sure I have the information.

Character Creation other than the choice of stat generation is as per PHB. In additon to the trinket it allows you to roll for I will be adding one additional random trinket to each character rolled from the Gothic Trinkets table in the adventure guide for this game.
