Let's talk sources! First off, my #1 rule when gaming is that everyone have fun. Rules exist as a framework for that, but at the end of the day if they are getting in the way, something is wrong.
As far as what I want to see, I'm super flexible - my main rule is nothing too goofy. That's a subjective thing, obviously, but I would rather say that than give a specific list of books that you can't use. If you have your heart set on a particular concept, as long as it's not OP and you can justify it and make it fun, it's all good!
Post any specific questions here.
P.S. No psionics
I am interested
okay, so beyond book sources-- should I choose a background/theme, or do you want to not use those?
beyond that, I was planning on rolling a sorcerer, but can go with something else if needed.
I'm happy to play any role once we've got a better sense of the shape of the party and what other people are looking to do.
