All races and classes from official Paizo materials are allowed.
Starting hit points are maximum.
No evil alignments (too much potential for inner party conflict).
You must choose at least one trait from the Shattered Star campaign traits (listed in the Shattered Star Player’s Guide).
Stats are created using a 20 point buy. All ability scores start at a base value of 10. You may increase or decrease any score based on a point cost. No score may be lowered below 7 or raised above 18. This does not include racial modifiers, this is just the base ability score.
Pick a Race
Pick a Class
The number of skills you get to start are determined by race and class. Skills can be used trained or untrained. If you are untrained in a skill, then the only bonus to your roll is the associated ability score bonus and any racial mods. Specific class skills get a +3 bonus if you put a skill rank in them.
For instance, Humans get an additional skill rank or point for each level, so 1 extra rank at level 1. Paladins get 2 + Intelligence modifier skill ranks per level, so with a base intelligence of 10 they would get 2 skill ranks at level 1. Total for this Human Paladin at level 1 would be 3 skill ranks.
You then spend these skill ranks as you like to purchase any listed skill. There is no additional cost for training a non-class skill, but you only get the +3 bonus for specific class skills.
You cannot have more ranks than your level in any one skill. So a level 1 character can have a maximum of 1 rank in any skill.
All characters start with 1 feat. Humans get 1 additional feat. Fighters get 1 bonus feat. Watch for prerequisites when choosing feats.
Everyone starts with a basic outfit worth up to 10gp.
Each player gets addtional starting gold based on their class.
