Character Creation Rules

  • Player Characters for Wicked Wilds start at 3rd level with 900 XP and all available starting equipment
  • Any backgrounds that provide free feats are excluded
  • This campaign requires the use of the latest version of any published material

  • Allowed Stat generation includes Standard Array, Point Buy, and rolling 4d6 (as per PHB pg 13).
  • No child characters.

Player Character Advancement

  • Characters will be rewarded with XP upon the completion of a game session. XP will be tracked on the Player Tracker spreadsheet and shared through the wiki.
  • XP will be awarded on a sliding scale to help balance the disparity of character levels that may find themselves at the same session. Average character level of the party will be used to determine base XP for the session.
  • XP will be rewarded for player contributions to the Quelmar Wiki. Thresholds will be established that will create diminished returns as players continue to write but the DMs do not, at this time, see a reason to put a cap on XP earned from Wiki contributions.
    • An example of diminished returns would be as follows:
      • 1XP per word, up to a total of 5,000 words.
      • 1XP per 2 words from 5,001 words to 10,000 words
      • 1XP per 3 words from 10,001 words to 15,000 words
      • And so on…
      • Once you have made a contribution to the wiki, fill out the following google form to fill out your information so when can update your XP.
  • Should the level deviation in the player base begin to hinder the ability of the DMs or the general fun and challenge of sessions, the DM team reserves the right to increase starting level and bump all existing characters still at the starting level.

A Slow Walker's Guide to the Land of the Lost

House Rules

  • All directions of movement, including diagonals, are 5 feet.
  • Taking a critical hit while making death saving throws is 1 automatic fail, not 2.
  • Ammunition and Carrying Capacity are not tracked. Though it may be determined on a case by case basis if you are carrying too much of something.
  • It's assumed players are supplied basic components for spells at camp between sessions. Very expensive components (like diamonds) are still tracked and necessary.
  • An inspiration point can be used to "De-Inspire" an enemy's check, save, or attack.
  • Allies and Enemies in a line of fire do not provide half-cover (unless they actively choose to provide cover for someone else)
  • The Flanking variant rule is in play, allowing players to get advantage if they attack an enemy from two opposing sides.
  • Players can cast 2 spells on their turn as long as one is a bonus action, and is not limited to Cantrip actions only.
  • Critical Hit Variant Rule:
    • When a critical attack is rolled, gather the entire dice pool as per the standard rule.
    • Remove one of the dice representing the weapons base damage and set it aside with its highest value facing up.
    • Roll the rest of the dice pool.
    • Total the rolled dice pool and then add the highest value of the die that was set aside.
    • Then add any relevant modifiers.

    • No Rolls Required.
  • Religious Practice

Well spend your downtime going on a company scouting mission. This allows you to travel to locations in between sessions and discover secrets that may have been missed before or find clarification on some recently discovered information. It also allows you to become more knowledgeable about a certain location, making it easier for the company to send an official expedition out to the site in the future.”
