    • Cannot select a class that requires any Good alignment
      • Exception: A paladin who has fallen and is taking levels of Blackguard
    • Cannot select a class that does not allow Evil aligned characters, such as ‘Neutral only’.
    • If you can plead your case, I will be open to reverse this judgment and remove the alignment restriction from the class.
    • Consult DM for any 3rd party class found on the SRD or otherwise

      • (There might be an Advanced Adventuring Gear Backpack, if I can find the time to bang it out, with better equipment but this will require a small donation from your starting gold.)
    • If a character wants a particular item but cannot presently afford it, consult DM. With some negotiation, you might be able to receive this item….for a price.
