Session #0 – Character Creation and Setting Overview

Character Creation Rules for Aestas Campaign.

The campaign will be starting at level 2 or 3 (undecided yet), and will be using the creation rules found in the player handbook.

The setting is Andy’s Aestas Campaign Setting, you don’t need to read the entire thing, its long, both he and I can help with determing where your characters are from etc.

We’ll also be experimenting with milestone experience, meaning that characters would level after significant events, or every couple of sessions to keep things moving along at a pretty even pace.

Stats are either point buy with a max of 15 points in a stat and total of 27 points, or standard array found in the players handbook, (15,14,13,12,10,8, your choice what goes where), then your racial bonuses.

Hit points can be rolled for after character creation. At the time of character creation, use the hit point max for your class at level 1 to determine your starting hit points, and then following the rules for your class for second level.

Racial options from below, with the following exceptions (No Aarakocra, Kenku, Firbolg, Taxabi, or Yuan-ti Pureblood). If you need a copy of any of these books, let me know and I will provide one.

  • Player Handbook
  • Volo’s Guide to Monsters

Class Options from the following. If you need a copy of any of these books, let me know and I will provide one.

Backgrounds can be from anywhere, though they may need to be massaged to fit into the setting, which is fine.
