Character Creation Rules

You may take only 1 prestige class.

Certain multiclass combinations require that you spend at least 3 levels in each class:

  • Bard/Blackguard
  • Monk/Any
  • Sorcerer/Blackguard
  • Sorcerer/Paladin
  • Shadowdancer/Any

If it becomes clear that you will fail to meet the above requirement by the point of reaching level 10 (for base classes) or level 15 (for prestige classes), you will be deleveled.

The following combinations are not permitted at all.

  • Bard/Sorcerer
  • Bard/Wizard
  • Paladin/Blackguard

Finally, remember that we are a roleplay server; a basic expectation is that you combine classes in a way appropriate to your character's story, and incorporate their theme or flavor into your roleplay.

Clerics must worship a Forgotten Realms deity as their patron deity. A cleric must remain within one step of their deity's alignment.

Clerics must have appropriate domains for their patron deity's faith. These are listed on each [deities:main|deity]]'s page.

If two of a deity's preferred domains are available on Cormanthor, the cleric must choose them.

Where only one appropriate domain, or none, currently exist, clerics should choose something thematically similar. In this case, the cleric will be expected to switch domains if appropriate domains are added in the future.

Druids must worship a designated 'nature deity'. Refer to the wiki for a list of Nature deities.

Druids take a sacred oath forbidding them from wearing metal armour or carrying metal shields. Doing so prevents them from casting spells or using other druid abilities for 24 hours. We do not currently enforce this restriction, but please incorporate it into the look of your character and your roleplay.

Monks do not have to choose a patron deity (though most do), however, they must belong to a monk order as long as they continue to take monk levels.

Monks are encouraged to choose a named monk order from FR canon. Refer to the wiki for a list of some canon Monk orders. If your monk character belongs to a different monastic group, you should at least name it and consider its relation to the canon groups.

Paladins must worship a Forgotten Realms deity who sponsors paladins. These are usually Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral, or Neutral Good, with the exception of Sune (Chaotic Good), who also canonically sponsors Paladins. (Note: In FR, Corellon Larethian does not sponsor paladins.)

Paladins are encouraged to belong to a named paladin order from FR canon. Refer to the wiki for a list Paladin orders. If your paladin character belongs to a different order, you should at least name it and consider its relation to the canon orders of their deity and others.

Rangers may worship and be granted spells by any deity - there is no 'nature only' restriction.

Character names must be pronounceable and setting appropriate.

Characters must be, at minimum, adult age for their (sub)race. When in doubt, use the default age or refer to the age tables on our wiki: Human, Half-elf, Half-orc, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling, Gnome.

Characters must be of an appropriate appearance for their race.

Wings, tails, glowing eyes, and monstrous head models are not permitted without an accompanying class feature.

Characters may start as members of any canon faction. No prior approval is necessary. See our wiki for a list of factions relevant to the area. Please choose a rank (where applicable) appropriate for a new character of limited experience and resources.

Characters may be of noble lineage. No prior approval is necessary. Like canon factions, this confers no in-game benefit.

Characters may not be members of past or present Royal families of the realms. This includes the Moonflowers, Irithyls, and Obarskyrs, etc.
