Remember this posting from back in April?
[yes, yes...I realize some folks took the month off from reading my blog due to the whole A-Z bandwagon thing...your loss]
Well, I took my own words to heart and worked up a list of starting gear based on character class and Social Status (that super-cool 7th ability score we used to call "starting gold"). Last week, I had the chance to try it out and it made chargen even faster and simpler than normal. And so I've got it up as a downloadable .pdf for anyone that wants to use it:
Get It Here
Here's how it works:
1. Roll 3D6 in order (or arranged to taste, I don't care!) for each of seven attributes:
- Social Status
2. Choose a class; adjust Prime Requisite to taste. As with Constitution and Charisma, Social Status cannot be adjusted upwards or down!
3. Cross-reference your character class with your Social Status to find your starting gear at 1st level. Demi-humans should use the fighter table, but elves add "spell book."
4. Pick a name and alignment, roll for hit points, and go!
How easy is that? Come on!
