Character Creation

Characters are built using 3d6 and my Character Generation Wheel.

There are no absolute restrictions on character race or class selection (as long as you have the stats for it) but be prepared to accept the social ramifications of certain choices.

You can download a character sheet here. It is designed to be printed double-sided on A4 paper, and fold to an A5 booklet format.

This is an A5 booklet-fold Spell Book, in the same format as the character sheet above.

This link leads to a double-sided A4 character sheet — an old design, updated for my current campaign.

Replacing the Dead and Departed

New characters entering the campaign will arive at the average of the current party level (rounded down), minus one. For example, if the average of all the current characters' levels is 5, a new character will start at mid-way through level four.

XP Distribution

XP are distributed as equal shares between all players who are actually involved in an encounter — this will mean that players who choose to play more than one character will have to split their XP between them. Characters who are absent from the party at the time, or who are being NPC'd, get nothing.

Note that taking an active role in planning for an encounter does count as being present, even if circumstances mean that your character has to be NPC'd for the actual confrontation.

Enigmatic. Reclusive. Powerful. Grumpy. Rich. Very rich.

The Household

The team is housed at Eyeless' expense in a house of their own in the township of Skrær, on Bucket Lane. It is a reasonably respectable address, though not overly luxurious.

The house comes with four servants:

Basina (the housekeeper, ♀)

Basina has the virtues of rigid honesty and chastity, and is patient with her staff and guests, but she is overly proud of her status as the mistress of the household, and she is very easily moved to envy of others, whereupon she can be quite poisonous in her spitefulness. Best to stay on the ood side of her if at all possible.

Turpin (the cook, ♂)

Turpin is not an amiable or attractive man. His only outstanding virtue is his honesty; apart from that, he is spiteful, gluttonous, lazy, and has a vicious temper. Eyeless provides only the basics as far as food goes, but plenty of it, and Turpin is a decent enough cook. But the table at the house would never be said to be of the haute cuisine.

Rothilde (the housemaid, ♀)

Rothilde is a self-effacing thing: unswervingly honest, generous and abstemious too — though not to excess. She does her work and keeps herself largely to herself, and if she has a fault it is that she has a very sharp tongue if provoked.

Sicho (the Boy, ♂)

Sicho lives for the moment. He is kind and generous, a little lazy perhaps. His great failing is that he is ever at the mercy of his importunate prick — given the opportunity, he will screw any one, any time. It's going to get him into real trouble one of these days.
