From the backstreet-backstabber to the archmage's favorite pupil, everyone in the world has a class. This should be no different in Ilyon. This page is devoted to making your Heroes and Heroines of Ilyon. Obviously, all SRD material is open for use.

Abilites[edit]

In the Island of Ilyon, the DM has to decide how to allow the players to gain their ability scores.
The 26 point buy is recommended for adventuring parties that don't wish to venture into the depths of Ezotos, or wish to further the cause of their faction with knowledge and engineering.
The 28 point buy system and the 4d6 (minus smallest) systems are recommended for any party that wants to infiltrate the perimeter of Ezotos, but not go in to deep. This is also recommended for the groups that want to focus on diplomatic and esponiange (sp) missions.
The 32 point buy and 4d6 (plus floating reroll) is well suited for the characters that want to just run into Ezotos or other dungeons, grab the treasure, and book it. And by book it, I, of course, mean run.
Anything stronger that the 32 point buy just means that the Campaign is going to turn into a dungeon crawl with almost no sense of forboding, or mystery, because the PCs can smash through anything in their path. LIke the walls. Which could be funny if they run into a cyst of Ilthadians.

Alignments[edit]

Good[edit]

Being good in Ilyon, pretty much means the same as it always has meant. You kill the evil dragon, defeat the corrupt bishop, save the town, and do not kick the children. That being said, in Ilyon specifically being good involves following the laws and honor (Detailed Below), and is most of the time somewhat difficult. If you just do what a mentally stable person would do in normal life, you should be fine.

Evil[edit]

Being Evil in Ilyon pretty much means the same as it always has meant. You kill the townspeople, become the corrupt bishop, assassinate the king, and kick the children through field goal posts. That being said, in Ilyon specifically, being evil involves disobeying the laws and honor (Detailed Below), and can be achived by just a few serious crimes.

Lawful[edit]

Note on Lawful/Chaotic: Lawfullness usually involves following laws, and chaotic-ness involves not following them. While this is true, some other things also apply to the lawful/chaotic spectrum of alignnment.

Lawfullness in Ilyon can range from following the laws, and having a mostly unstructred lifestyle (like the Paladin). To the other side, that is, not following the laws to the fullest degree, but have a strictly regimented lifestyle (like the Monk).

Chaotic[edit]

Note on Lawful/Chaotic: Lawfullness usually involves following laws, and chaotic-ness involves not following them. While this is true, some other things also apply to the lawful/chaotic spectrum of alignnment.

Chaoticy in Ilyon is the act of being as free as the wind blows, going on the spur of the moment, and running full speed down a muddy 60o slope in the winter. Maybe not the last one. Being chaotic is not randomly doing things that might get you arrested or cause you bodily harm, such as walking one way across the street, then turning around and walking back endlessly. Even the wind blows with some restrictions.

Neutral[edit]

Being neutral on any axis in Ilyon doesn't mean not doing anything to put you to either side, but it means doing things for both of the ways that cause the scale to even out.


Laws and Honor[edit]

This is a quick run-down of the laws in Ilyon for all of you who think that streetside murder is a national sport. In Ilyon this will probably get you killed or arrested.

Well, here it is:

Translated exerpts from Stilus Foederis:

Murder
If you are witnessed in the act of taking the life from another being inside of the city limits of any occupied city on the Island of Ilyon you will be tried by jury and judge. If the witness does not step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] kill [Dead Guy's Name]", the offender will be set free without charge. If the witness does step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] kill [Dead Guy's Name]", then the offender will be tried by the jury and decided to be convicted or set free, depending upon the verdict of the jury.
If convicted, the defendant will be sentenced to their choice of life-long imprisonment, random teleportation to a different plane, or death. If the defendant is not convicted, then her or she is released freely, but will be watched closly be the town gaurd until they feel he or she is able to be trusted.
Theft
If you are witnessed in the act of taking an object of value from another being or area inside of the city limits of any occupied city on the Island of Ilyon you will be tried by jury and judge. If the witness does not step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] steal [Item]", the offender will be set free without charge. If the witness does step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] steal [Item]", then the offender will be tried by the jury and decided to be convicted or set free, depending upon the verdict of the jury.
If convicted, the defendant has different choices dependent upon how valuable the item stolen was:
If the item was of nearly negligilbe value, the defendant will face a night at the jail.
If the item was of some value (10-60gp) the defendant will spend a night at the jail, and give fair compensation to the family he stole from.
If the item is of minor value (60-200gp) the defendant will be kept at the jail for three days, branded, and give fair compensation to the family from which the item was taken.
If the item was of major value (200-1000gp), the defendant will be kept at the jail for 2 weeks, branded, given two weeks of community service, and give fair compensation to the family from which the item was taken.
If the item was of great value (1000-5000gp) the defendant will be kept at the jail for five weeks, branded, given three weeks of community service, held in a public stockade, and must give fair compensation to the family from which the item was taken.
Anything higher than that, and the defendant is prosecuted as the judge sees fit.
Arsonry
If you are witnessed in the act setting fire to a house or other residential structure inside of the city limits of any occupied city on the Island of Ilyon you will be tried by jury and judge. If the witness does not step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] set fire to [Place]", the offender will be set free without charge. If the witness does step forward and say "I witnessed [Defendant's Name] set fire to [Place]", then the offender will be tried by the jury and decided to be convicted or set free, depending upon the verdict of the jury.
If convicted, the defendent will be senctenced to helping rebiuld the structure, and paying for as much of the materials as he of she can, and 2 to 7 weeks of jail time (more jail time means less time helping rebiuld the damaged property).

More is being translated, and will be added at a later date.
