- Create a new 1st level character (or reskin your old one). For the lazy, a long list of pregens are here: http://community.wizards.com/forum/player-help/threads/4109696
- Use the point buy system in the PHB (same as the League rules).
- Allowed races: The core four (Human, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling) plus half-elves.
- Allowed alignments: Good alignments.
- General Theme: You are heroic, noble characters. Model characters from The Fellowship of the Ring (but not Boromir!).
- You all know each other; we can figure out how at the game table, but feel free to start the discussion via email if you want.
