House Rules

House rules go in this section. Rules are subject to change and whatnot.

  1. Wildshape is not so clearly cheese. Desert animals suck, don’t be a druid. Or be one. But know that your wildshape choices are under my control.
  2. Gnomes suck, don’t be one. They don’t, and have never existed in Ashen Sands.
  3. Sorcerers don’t have to use material components and get bonus feats like a Wizard. At first level a Sorcerer gets one bonus metamagic feat so long as that feat does not adjust the spell level by greater than 1 and that the Sorcerer otherwise qualifies for the feat.
  4. Losing a familiar does not carry the one year downtime before a new one can be obtained. The other penalties are subject to adjustment.
  5. In many games food and water don’t matter. You’ll be in a desert, Water matters and I expect you to keep track of it. Try to have enough that you won’t die of thirst if your divine caster is unable to Create Water for you.
  6. Some skills have been combined, let me know if you have any questions about synergy.
    1. A lock is a device. Use your Disable Device modifier for opening locks.
    2. Balance and Tumble are the same skill, call it Acrobatics
    3. Climb and Jump are the same skill, call it Athletics (your size modifier applies still!)
    4. Spot and Listen are the same skill, call it Perception
    5. Hide and Move Silently are the same skill, call it Stealth (your size modifier applies still!)
  7. Racial Favored Classes are BS, just don’t do stupid stuff with multiclassing ok?
  8. Just to be clear on this; Layered defenses apply in the say most advantageous for the targeted creature. For example, a wizard with Fire Shield(Fire) and Resist Energy(Fire 10) hit with a Scorching Ray would first halve the damage because the Fire Shield and then subtract 10 from the remaining damage because of the Resist Energy.
  9. Play nice with the other PCs.
