     G1 Deities in Norrath 

(Standard deities still apply though you should also choose a norrath deity your character worships for roleplay purposes)

Character Build:

     C1 Character Creation Process

  1. (Characters start at level 6 with 5d1000+3000 Gold Pieces)

  2. All ability scores start at 8.

  3.  You then apply racial bonuses.  See C4 for races.

  4. You then may roll up to 8d4 TOTAL dice to add to ability scores. 

  5. You can roll up to 3d4 for a single ability score. 

  6. You may add 1 extra d4 to to a single ability score if you take a flaw from the following table (Rolling d13 to determine). These amounts are applied based on what you declare your d4s on BEFORE rolling them. 

  7. You are allowed 1 reroll on a single ability score(this involves rerolling any of the dice associated with that ability score taking the second result. 

  8. Special guidelines on intelligence in Realm of Norrath. 

  9. If you are not sure how any of this works ASK. Do not make assumptions because it may not be as bad as it seems.

  10. (A GM or trusted player must be present for all rolls made, though you may fill everything else out in advance).

     C2 Hitpoints:

  You roll hitpoints and may reroll your level 1 hitpoints once. You may not reroll for any levels past first level

     C3 Classes:

      No classes are banned except those in the listed books under B3 and B1.

Class List for Norrath.

     C4 Races:

      Most races are allowed but I would prefer if you stay within the lines of a race from everquest(most of which are on this list)

       Most of the standard base races(humans, elves, dwarves, etc) that are canon 3.5 are remade in the following list to fit closer to the lore but are not that much different to the base 3.5 versions. I prefer if you use the Norrath version.

     C5 Item Effects:

      Anything that allows you to wield a weapon more than 1 size category than your own natural size category(AKA you cannot strongarm bracer and then giant growth yourself to use a huge weapon, you would still be limited to large sized weapons)
