House Rules and Character Creation
All characters start with a bonus 20 Hit Points, as early level games can be quite deadly.

All characters get an additional 4 skill points per level (multiplied by 4 for first level).

Characters gain a Feat at every character level, this replaces the standard 1st, 3rd, 6th, etc... progression.

Gestalt Campaign : Meaning you get the best of two classes at each level!

Attack Rolls, Saves, Skill Checks you will roll 2d20 and take the higher roll (drop the lower die).  This is due to RPOLs dice roller being most unfriendly.

Races are going to adjusted from their standard variants, see Orcs Thread.

Prestige Classes will be altered in this campaign, specifically it does not replace your classes, but supplements them. There is no multiclassing, so what happens is at the appropriate levels, you gain the abilities of the prestige classes you have confirmed with the GM about.

Also, as a gift to the players, you may take one -2 penalty to a stat and say goodbye to it.
