This is where to post the characters! Ask question in the chit chat thread.

Most of these are in the Field Guide, except the catfolk.

EXP and HP:

Roll 4d6, drop lowest, arrange in any order
Max HP at first level. Please roll all others.

Spellcasters get to cast additional 1st level spells based on their primary stat.

Spells known - 3 per character level, of any level, for magic users.

Yuan-Cheng doesn't say much. He is on a mission of penance to destroy those who mistreat others and give to those who have been mistreated. He does this as he used to be one of those who mistreated others. He was a gang boss in southern China, ruthless and cruel. One day, a rival gang took him by surprise and left him for dead. He was found by a local monk and brought to the monastery where he rested and healed. In hiding from the gang that had left him for dead and had taken over the area, he stayed in the monastery and became a monk. Eventually, his thoughts of revenge changed to righting wrongs that he had once committed. Starting locally, he overthrew the local gang. Now he wanders the world fighting injustice.

Exp Tally:
XP: 44,687
Next level: 80,000

Rostam is a Zoroastrian paladin from Persia.
He is a small man with dark, piercing eyes, and - usually - a well groomed mustache and goatee.
Under normal conditions, he dresses neatly and appears rather non-threatening.
After his escape from the pirates, he looks rather shabby but still keeps an unperturbed poise.

Rostam was sent by the elders of his faith as a messenger to their brethren in Fark Athay.
The elders were hoping to obtain a copy of a sacred text that has been lost in Persia for generations.
As it turned out, the priest who might have known about the text had died a few years ago.
His only son and heir, who might have a clue to the whereabouts of the text, is a spice merchant who is currently beleived to be staying at Salaya.
Thus, Rostam took passage on the Ark-ari and was captured by the mutineers.
