Character Creation Guidelines
Rule Creation Guidelines (As Player's Handbook):

1. Choose Race. Decide the race of your character. Your choice of race offers several racial advantages to your character. Chapter 3.

2. Choose Class. Your class represents your training or profession, and it is the most important part of your character’s capabilities. Chapter 4.

3. Determine Ability Scores. Generate your ability scores. Your ability scores describe the fundamental strengths of your body and mind. Your race adjusts the scores you generate, and different classes rely on different ability scores. Chapter 2.

4. Choose Skills. Skills measure your ability to perform tasks such as jumping across chasms, hiding from observers, and identifying monsters. Chapter 5.

5. Select Feats. Feats are natural advantages or special training you possess. Chapter 6.

6. Choose Powers. Each character class offers a different selection of powers to choose from. Chapter 4.

7. Choose Equipment. Pick your character’s armor, weapons, implements, and basic adventuring gear. At higher levels, you’ll be able to find and create magic items. Chapter 7.

8. Fill in the Numbers. Calculate your hit points, Armor Class and other defenses, initiative, attack bonuses, damage bonuses, and skill check bonuses. Chapter 2.

9. Roleplaying Character Details. Flesh out your character with details about your personality, appearance, and beliefs. Chapter 2.

Character Creation Guidelines
Your Stats may be assigned as follows:

Method 1: Standard Array:
Take these six numbers and assign them to your abilities any way you like: 16, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10.

Apply your racial ability adjustments (see Chapter 3) after you assign the scores to your abilities.

Method 2: Customizing Scores:
This method is a little more complicated than the standard array, but it gives comparable results. With this method, you can build a character who’s really good in one ability score, but at the cost of having average scores in the other five.

Start with these six scores: 8, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10.

You have 22 points to spend on improving them. The cost of raising a score from one number to a higher number is shown on the table below.

The Slaying Stone - Backgrounds
CITIZEN OF KIRIS DAHN:
You were born in the waning town of Kiris Dahn and spent your early years there. The citizens abandoned the already dilapidated town eight years ago, but you remember how it once was. Was your family wealthy or poor? Did you know about the town's magical defenses? Have you seen the town since it was overrun and renamed Gorizbadd?

ASSOCIATED SKILLS

QUEST: FIND YOUR BELONGINGS
1st-Level Minor Quest (100 XP)

item from the ruins of Kiris Dahn.


DEFENDER OF THE OPPRESSED:
Though the great empires of the world have fallen, tyranny still reigns on a small scale in many places. You swore to bring down tyrants both powerful and petty. Did you grow up under a tyrannical regime? Does it matter who is being oppressed? Would you rather fight for the victims or empower them to fight for themselves?

QUEST: FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
1 st-Level Minor Quest (100 XP)
You complete this quest if you meet some people that

overpower their tyrants.


GOBLIN FOE:
The disgusting creatures of the goblin family (goblins, hobgoblins, and bugbears) have earned your unending enmity. Did someone close to you get hurt or killed by goblins? Was a place you once lived looted or attacked? Do you abhor goblins for their cowardice? How about their awful smell?

1 st-Level Minor Quest (1 00 XP)
You complete this quest if you remove the goblins from
power in Gorizbadd/Kiris Dahn.

Holy sites deserve respect and require protection. Across the world, especially amid ruins and in the lairs of monsters, divine shrines to good gods have been pol· luted by the presence ofevil. You have taken it upon yourself to purify these places. Do you also hunt down those who desecrate shrines? What equipment do you carry to reconsecrate shrines?

QUEST: RECLAIM THE SHRINES
1st-Level Minor Quest (100 XP)
You complete this quest if you consecrate anew a holy
place the goblins have desecrated or destroyed.



TREASURE HUNTER:
Fascinated by antiquity and the magical arts, you've long dreamed offinding and collecting ancient enchanted items.
