Here are the guidelines for creating a character in Phoenix Rise
Your characters were born towards the end of the Age of Heroes, and rose to fame and might during the Dragon Wars. After Aesur shut everything down, the Great Heroes of the world began disappearing one by one. Suddenly you became a fugitive, trying to outrun whatever it was that was hunting you. Old enemies became allies in the desperate struggle to survive.
In the end it was futile. Your stalker turned out to be a Solar Angel, armed with the power to imprison you in a timeless cage. 500 years later, you’ve been awakened.
I’m trying something new. Roll 1d6+12 for all of your stats. 6 rolls, per usual. I’ve tried this with a couple of NPC’s and gotten pretty impressive results. However if you roll more than 3 18’s, or more than 3 13’s, I’m going to make you do it again
This game begins at Effective Character Level 16.
The standard DnD races exist in Avarda, although their roles may change significantly.
- Dwarves: The Lost Ones, as they are often called. No one knows how they came into the world, or where they went. A few relics of their existence are all the evidence we have that they ever lived outside of legend, but some believe that they still exist, so deep in their mines that they are all but invisible.
- Elves: Exiles from the Faerie Court. For some reason or another, you have had your immortality and birthright dismissed and were sent to live among the filthy mortals of the world.
- Halflings: Often called the children of Aevisa, the Halflings were originally denizens of the Fae who chose to remain on Avarda than travel to Faerie with the rest of their kin. Aeons have passed, and Halflings have more or less homoginized with Humanity.
- Half-Elves: Changeling children, left from an illicit affair with a mortal. Reguardless of which parent was fae, Changelings are usually left with their mortal parent to care for them (the Fae have little conception of how to raise a child).
- Half-Orcs: The Orcs of Avarda aren’t quite the brooding thugs of most fantasy settings, however Humans and Orcs have had little understanding of one another throughout their history and Half-Orcs are rarely born under happy circumstance.
- Humans: Humans are the children of Aesur and the dominant species of Avarda.
- Others: Other races exist on Avarda, and still more used to exist during the Age of Heroes.
Before you were imprisoned, you had access to an enormous amount of resources. However you’re now restricted to what you can carry on your back. You can’t select any resources that you can’t personally keep on you at any time; it would have been scavanged centuries ago.
Based on your character’s history, I will give you powers or artefacts that will make you awesome
