Secondary Player-Character (5000 PP)
This will be a secondary player character for the player. The player will maintain full control of the character at all times. The character will start out at the level of the player’s primary character at the time of purchase -2, and will gain experience awarded per game session equal to what is awarded to the primary character (this will not subtract from the experience earned by the primary character or other players). The character will be generated by the DM, however the player may select the primary class of the secondary character. The gender, race, appearance, and back story will be defined by the DM, and the secondary character will be worked into the campaign as soon as is logical to the storyline. Also, the secondary character will come equipped with five minor magical items, and three medium magical items that will all be relevant for his or her class to have in possession. The secondary character will also come with the equipment included in the related class starter package as per the DMG with x100 GP generated.
Divine Blessing (7000 PP)
The Gods have smiled upon your character. There are four scenarios from which the player may choose one when this option is purchased. These gaining of these effects is considered a divine blessing, and cannot be removed or “lost” in any way (though if a magical effect is selected, they are subject to the same limitations as their spell equivalents, such as anti-magic fields, spell resistance, etc.).
- Scenario 1: The character gains the ability to “cast” once per day, as a free action three first level wizard spells, cleric spells or psionic powers (if you have a power point pool) as spell-like or psi-like abilities. The three spells or powers must be defined at the time the option is purchased and cannot be changed later. The caster/manifester level for these effects will be calculated as the character’s level.
- Scenario 2: The character gains the ability to “cast” once per day each, as a free action, two second level wizard spells, cleric spells or psionic powers with the same provisos as Scenario 1.
- Scenario 3: The character gains the ability to “cast” once per day, as a free action, one third level wizard spell, cleric spell or psionic power with the same provisos as Scenario 1.
- Scenario 4: (Extra Life!) Functioning as the stereotypical “extra life” if this scenario is chosen, the next time the character dies (-10 HP or lower) the Gods will grant the character a second chance. This effect is instantaneous upon death, returns the character to life with full hit points, all status restored, and with a divine shield effect that will add 10 to the characters armor class for 3d8 rounds. Once the “extra life” is used, it’s gone.
- Scenerio 5: (Back From the Dead!) One of your former characters makes a miraculous return, becoming your new primary character.
Special Note: Scenarios 1-3 may only be purchased once each. However Scenarios 4 and 5 can be purchased multiple times.
Character Overhaul (10,000)
The player can completely rewrite the character only retaining background and personality. Items would be gone and new items would be selected using rules from the DMG for starting character wealth. New feats, skills, abilities, and even a new race and class can be selected.
More options may become available in the future…
