Amicas: house Rules, Character Creation and Leveling Up


Spellcasting:  See Spellcasting in Amicas for custom rules.

Hero Points:  See Hero Points for custom rules and use.

Fumble: Whenever an attacker rolls a natural 1 on the die, the attack misses and there is the threat of a fumble. The attacker must immediately make a confirmation roll, using their full base attack bonus (and accompanying modifiers). If the attack roll would miss the target, the attacker fumbles. The attacker will then roll a d10 which will determine the result of the fumble. An attacker can only fumble once per combat.

Death: When a character dies they roll for a chance of Divine Intervention from their Deity. A d100 will be rolled and if the result is 95 (90 for clerics) or above the character comes back to life with 0 HP. If they fail others in the party may also attempt the same roll. There may be additional effects from coming back from the dead for the character as determined by the GM, especially if a character is saved by a deity other than the one they originally followed.


 All characters start without a class and will essentially be a level 0 character.  Use the rules below to build your starting character.  Class levels will then be applied on top of this starting character base.  All characters will start from one of the small agrarian villages they live in.
