IMPORTANT: DO NOT POST A CHARACTER SHEET UNTIL YOU'RE SURE YOU'VE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE FOLLOWING HOUSERULES. I WILL TOLERATE ZERO BITCHING AFTERWARDS IF IT RESULTS FROM A FAILURE TO DO SO.

Note: Probably not the final version yet, proceed with caution.

All characters will start with 102 000 XP and 33 000 GP, placing single-classed characters at level 8 and multiclassed characters at level 6.

The following experience chart will be used instead of the standard one
  1. 0
  2. 3000
  3. 9000
  4. 18000
  5. 30000
  6. 48000
  7. 72000
  8. 102000
  9. 141000
  10. 189000
  11. 249000
  12. 324000
  13. 420000
  14. 546000
  15. 714000
  16. 939000
  17. 1239000
  18. 1635000
  19. 2151000
  20. 2814000

Multiclassing: Multiclassing is handled via gestalt, BUT if you multiclass, both sides of the gestalt receive XP separately. Also, if you want multiple PrCs, they use the same side of the gestalt, BUT you must take each PrC in its entirety before starting on a new PrC. Tristalt is allowed following the same logic, but it's not recommended and only one side can be PrCs.

Ability scores: 20 point-buy

Allowed classes: Paizo(-Kineticist, ask about warlock instead or use one of the DSP classes) + All DSP, but anything not on the SRD must be cleared with me first and I must be provided with a source for said material, be it the playtest document or a PDF. Rite Publishing Occultist is also allowed. Other 3rd party on a case by case basis.

Allowed races: Core races except half-orcs and anything with orcish blood, because orcs aren't a thing in Ravenloft. If someone wants to play Caliban or half-vistani or other Ravenloft native things, poke me first. Anything else that's obviously exotic is discouraged as the people of Ravenloft are suspicious and that will have severe implications for interacting with them. Further, Outsiders as a whole are extremely rare in Ravenloft and having the outsider type has special implications, so aasimar/tiefling/etc. are discouraged as well, unless they come from outside Ravenloft.

Languages: The starting location hasn't been set in stone yet, so you might leave this part of your sheet at least partly open for now.

Hit Points: Max HP for the first dice, average rounded up after that

Skills: All classes except full casters get a minimum of 4+int skill points per level. Archetypes such as lore warden which trade something for more skillpoints still get the same amount of extra skillpoints compared to the baseclass.

Classes: Core Rogue is not a thing, use Unchained Rogue instead. Fighters get all good saves. Monks get extra ki-powers as per qinggong monk archetype at 4th level and every four levels thereafter in addition to getting twice as much ki; this does not apply to Unchained Monks. Other T5 classes may get buffs should anyone insist on playing one.

Feats: The following feat chains are folded into a single feat. When you take the first feat in the chain, you automatically gain the other feats when you meet their prerequisites(note: more may be added later, as I'm not entirely up to date on all the feats on the SRD):
Weapon Focus - Weapon Wpecialization - Greater Weapon Focus - Greater Weapon Wpecialization
Vital Strike - Improved Vital Strike - Greater Vital Strike
Improved x - Greater x where x = combat maneuver of your choice or feint
Blind Fight - Improved Blind Fight - Greater Blind Fight
Dimensional Assault - Dimensional Dervish
Disruptive - Spellbreaker
Endurance - Die Hard
Point-Blank Shot - Disrupting Shot
Precise Shot - Improved Precise Shot - Pinpoint targeting
Snap Shot - Improved Snap Shot - Greater Snap Shot
Rapid Shot - Manyshot
Cleave - Great Cleave
Cleaving Finish - Improved Cleaving Finish
Shield Focus - Shield Specialization - Greater Shield Focus - Greater Shield Specialization
Two-Weapon Fighting - Improved Two-Weapon Fighting - Greater Two-Weapon Fighting
Mounted Combat - Trick Riding - Mounted Skirnisher
Shot on the Run - Parting Shot
Spider Step - Cloud Step
Weapon Finesse - Deadly Agility

Shields Shall be Splintered: A character who is proficient with shields and wielding a shield can once per round when he is not flat-footed or grappled choose to block an attack he is aware of that would otherwise hit him. The character takes no damage. A non-magical shield made of common materials is destroyed. A shield that is enchanted or made of special material of exceptional durability such as adamantine isn't automatically destroyed, but instead takes double damage from the attack(minimum 1 point after hardness is taken into account). If a magical shield is used to block a spell, it takes either full effects of the spell(no save) or, if the spell wouldn't normally affect the shield, 1 point of damage per spell level ignoring hardness.

Crossbows: Heavy crossbows, like composite bows, have strength rating that's added to their damage. If the wielder has strength bonus at least equal to the rating, they treat the crossbow as a light crossbow for the purpose determining how long it takes to reload it. For every 4 points the crossbow's strength rating exceeds the wielder's strength rating, the reloading time for the crossbow doubles(this makes free actions into swift actions, swift actions into move actions, move actions into standard action and standard actions into full-round actions when applicable). Having strength rating higher than 0 costs 75 gp per +1 for heavy crossbows and 150 gp per +1 for repeating heavy crossbows.
