- Free Excel-based sheet
- Purchasable Excel based sheet
Paizo Rise of the Runelords Player’s Guide
Before you do anything else, read the Paizo-published Rise of the Runelords Players Guide. It contains great information about the region of Golarion that the campaign is based in, the city of Sandpoint (where the campaign starts out), races and classes in the region, religions, equipment, weapons, etc.
Characters and Classes
Please add your characters to the Characters page.
We’re using a high fantasy point by system. This means you’ll have 20 points to blow on ability scores. Before you start jumping up and down, ability scores cost a little different in Pathfinder:
The good news is that you can get some additional points above the 20 by taking negative scores!
Below is the table for rolling your starting wealth. Roll for what you start with – if you roll below the average, just take the average. You should purchase any normal equipment you need as a starting adventurer.
Traits are an interesting way of adding flavor to PCs without overpowering them. You receive two traits. See the SRD Traits page for further details on traits that are available to you.
We will be using the optional Pathfinder rules for Hero Points – please take a look at them as they differ slightly from those used in our other 3.5 campaigns.
