World of Origin's Age of Renewal
Don't get overwhelmed!
Please do not get overwhelmed with the following rules! You DO NOT need to read every word of my house rules to get started (It would be appreciated, though.).
To start making your character you really only need to read the following:
1.All of the Basic Information Everyone Needs to Read section.
2.The parts of the Race Changes section which relates to the race you want to play. First skim over the Races specific changes subsection to see if any changes have been made to the race you want to play. Secondly skim over the Favored Class changes subsection to see if a change has been made to the race you want to play.
3.The parts of the Class & Prestige Class Changes section which relates to the class you want to play. First see if there are any changes to the class you want under the Class Specific Changes subsection. Only read Classes, Prestige Classes & Multiclassing if you are interested in multiclassing or a prestige class, only read Prestige Class Prerequisites if you are interested in a prestige class, and only read Gaining a familiar, animal companion, mount, etc. if your class relates to one of those creatures or if you want to take the Handle Animal skill for your character.
4.In the Other Changes section the only subsection you need to read in it’s entirety is the Combat Mechanics (Don’t worry, it is not necessary to memorize it word for word. You’ll get used to it during play). Then simply skim over Feat Changes and Skill Changes to see if any feats or skills you want to take for your characters are mentioned there.
5.Everything else is for the most part optional, and/or for you to read at your leisure. Even the Magic Changes section is not necessary to read unless you are really determined to play a caster. However, be warned that eventually all of this will come up in-game.
