3. 5. Choose Equipment Purchase starting equipment (p. 143) (consider Equipment Packs if desired, p 151, and tools p 154). Remember clothing for various weather, rope, light sources, food, waterskins, containers to carry equipment, etc. Armor (calculate armor class) Weapon(s) (melee and/or missile/thrown). Everyone gets 1 free roll on the Trinkets table (pp. 160-161), and then you create a background story as to why you have it, and relevant significance. 6. Gather Together • Establish location. • Establish duration. • Establish start and end schedule. • Plan on a physical get up and move around break for 5 minutes every hour. • If session duration exceeds 3-4 hours, consider a mid-session longer 15-30 minute break. Hawkes-Robinson House Rules: • Pick a Felllowship Focus (TOR/AiMe). Tie in with PC background and story. • Allow alternate rules of “Multiclassing” beginning on p. 163, and Feats beginning on p.165 (instead of an attribute gain at certain levels, there must be a story-related reason for how/why that feat fits your character’s story and background). 7. Equipment Checklist for Players • Location to be seated. • PC Sheet • Set of dice • Players Handbook • Player handouts (from DM) • Additional dynamic and static data storage tool (pencil/paper/post-its) and writing surface (if needed, like clipboard if using more relaxed seating such as sofas).
