The Rebuilding of Hiltmarch
Simple rules to character creation for this game. Since we’re starting at level 1, every race without a level adjustment is allowable. Anything from any source without a level adjustment or racial hit die is just fine. So yes, you can play as any of the normally monstrous races, so long as they don’t have adjustments.
Every class is also allowable, with the exception of psionics.
For character creation, foll 4d6 7 times. For each roll, drop the lowest number. At the end, drop the lowest value and you have your stats. When it comes to stat bonuses, reroll if you have a total bonus of less than +6, before any racial adjustments.
