  • You start at 5th level with $5000 (1 gp = $10, 1 sp = $1) and 50 downtime days in addition to your standard starting wealth (either the equipment granted by your class and background, or the starting gold from the Equipment section of the Players Handbook).  This downtime can be used to craft consumables or modify equipment if your character is capable of such things.

  • Enrichment and Traits: If you send me a paragraph or so of backstory for your character, you will receive 10 Enrichment.  Enrichment can be spent and bought by taking positive and negative Traits.  Traits can only be taken at character creation.  Enrichment will also have further uses in the campaign proper, and will be awarded at my discretion.

  • You gain Skill Ranks at every even numbered level (2, 4, 6, etc.) for use with the skills described on the Crafting Rules page.
