For Glory, For Empire
All characters begin with a story. Your character must begin with one also. It can be as simple as “A modern day wizard turned private eye” (Harry Dresden), or as complicated as “the representative of a peaceful planet is dismayed at the encroaching militant fascism of the galactic empire that has replaced the republic her father loved. she decides to help out the rebellion against the empire, putting at risk her life, and those of her planet.” (Princess Leia)
Characters begin at 2nd level and with 1000 gp of wealth and 20 point buy for Ability Scores.
Consider all Paizo-published material (with errata) safe, unless I say otherwise, and I will consider 3rd party material inclusion. It matters less, where that material comes from, but whether the character concept and mechanics work for the flavor of the campaign and rest of the group. 3/3.5e material is out.
All Paizo-published classes allowed, except Summoners must use the Pathfinder Unchained version.
Playable races can be found in People of Toreen.
2 Traits are allowed, plus 1 Drawback to gain a third Trait. One Trait must be left blank when submitting the character, then the other players will suggest Traits based on your background.
