|Female race lineup from 3.5 Player's Handbook by Todd Lockwood|
Flood is part I of An Age of Endless Storms, an Eberron campaign using the playtest version of the Next iteration of Dungeons and Dragons. Aside from playesting the mechanics side of things, our gaming group has wants to see how well the system handles established campaign settings. Note that, as part of the Online Playtest Agreement, I will refrain from posting specific homebrew stuff such as new statblocks, races, and maybe even dragonmarked specialties that I may decide to include in order to preserve the feel of the Eberron campaign setting. However, I may allude to them from time to time, describing such homebrew content in descriptive rather than completely technical terms. Hopefully, that would be enough for readers to follow the progress of our playtest.
With the rules for rolling stats fully understood by the players, they began to work on their characters. In this iteration of the playtest, many of the players gravitated toward human as a race. Was it because of my character generation method, or is human just too strong as a race right now? Currently, I believe they are attractive as a beginner race. (I mentioned that before, haven't I?) I think I will need a second group to adequately judge the strength of humans.
So, here are the characters that my players have come up with. I would like to thank them for taking their time to write down short descriptions of their characters.
