>Okay,  here's the set up.
>I need six players for a PBEM campaign I am starting up. The campaign is
>set in the Realms,  1367 DR. I will choose players who send a well thought
>out,  detailed character background.  Munchkins shouldn't waste their
>time.  The six characters will serve as officers in a merc unit forming
>for a specific,  as yet unknown, action.  Mages,  thieves,  and priests
>are needed as well as fighters.The commander of the merc unit is a player
>from my regular gaming sessions,  he will be the seventh player.  There
>will be no web page associated with this game, so if you want to play be
>sure to save all messages.
>Okay,  a few guidelines on characters:
>_NO_ "Option" garbage.
>Levels-1 to 6  Be sure to give me a background.  PCs from previous
>campaigns are welcome,  provided they have a detailed background.
>Classes- any standard class from the PHB,  and psionicists. Multiclass
>must follow the guidelines in the PHB.  Dual class must be human.
>Races-No dragons,  beholders,  _drow_,  illithids.  Most from the Complete
>Book of Humanoids wil get through. If you look wierd expect npcs to treat
>you wierd.  Waterdeep is a spelljammer port,  and a cosmopolitan city-
>Planescape races may be allowed.
>Kits-Complete thieves, fighters,  priests,  mage,  psionicists,  Will and
>the way,  City of Splendors,  elves,  dwarves,  humanoids,  Runecasters
>from the Vikings book,  possibly some from dragon or other sources-try me.
>Alignments-Choose carefully,  I'll hold you to it.  If your actions are
>severe enough to warrent a drastic change,  characters above fourth level
>_lose_ a level,  dropping to the min xp needed for the next level down.
>I'll warn you if I feel you are slipping.
>Equipment-beginning PCs start with standard gp for their class and kit,
>they can purchase items from auroura's whole realms catalogue,  arms and
>equipment guide,  thieves'handbook,  PHB.  None of the players should be
>rich,  otherwise why would they want a merc job?
>Ability Scores-  I recomand using 4d6,  dropping the lowest,  roll six
>times and then arrange to fit.  Honestly,  I don't care how you do it,
>but overwhelmingly high scores will get your PC rejected as Munchkiny.  18
>is the highest score allowed,  and all racial limits apply.  PCs of some
>races _might_ exceed the 18 limit,  I reserve the right to make a
>judgement call based on the PCs other stats.
>Be sure to send a complete list of Stats,  abilities,  spells,  eqiupment,
>and especially background explaining why you are in Waterdeep.

>Good Gaming!!!
