The nitty gritty...
Create a 3rd level character
Allowed books, PHB1, PHB2, Adventurers vault. However, you will find that I am a very leinent DM, if you want to use a book beyond the allowed books I will usually allow it however, I will need you to find a way to show me info on the race etc you want to use, perhaps via a web site. I hope to add more books to my collection soon.
Stats: Roll 4d6 (this method is detailed in the PHB), since this is a play by post all rolls are on the honor system.
Money: We are going to do something a little bit different, Roll a d6.... this will determine your wealth level.. once you message me your roll I will tell you your starting gold.
The fun stuff! please create a back story!
three things you need to include in your back story...
1. a long held fear
2. a life long dream
3. a vice
I will not share these with other players but it will help me come up with some fun scenarios, that could result in extra XP :-)
