The Age of Reason
The main change here is how we are doing the ability scores. Rather than roll for ability scores or using a point-buy system, each character is to choose their ability scores according to the following array:
11 – 13 – 14 – 14 – 16 – 17
Assign these to your various ability scores as you see fit, and then adjust them according to racial modifiers.
The purpose behind this is to help balance everyone else. It really sucks to have an underpowered character because the dice really hated you.
Also, each character gets two traits. However, campaign specific traits from the SRD are not available, and I may put up some traits specific to this campaign as well.
