-Build your character using the Players Option: Skills and Powers system, then continue with the Players Option: Spells and Magic, then High Level Campaigns.
Or, if you want to use a Core Rules build and kit, you will need to use a stricter set of rules during your build. No split sub-stats. No custom race or class abilities, and any excess CPs from race and class are dropped. You get the bonuses that your kit recommends, then you buy proficiencies as per the Players Handbook. You won’t use the CP builds from Spells and Magic, but starting at Lv2, you will earn CPs and buy proficiencies as per the Skills and Powers and High Level Campaigns rules.
-Dragons are of any alignment, and not restricted by color
-Human Terminology does not match game terms when describing the Races, Humans use the term “elves” to describe Dwarves, Gnomes, Elves, Halflings, Pixie and Fairy folk, and Brownies and their ilk.
-there are lots of new races, spells, classes, kits, proficiencies and more, but it’s not all available to every player character. If you can’t find a way to express your character, talk to the DM.
