Updated the following sections of the rules to add support for templates:

Section 1: Character Story & Creation

Quote
- Hair, skin and eye color must be natural for the character's race, origin and template.

- Characters must not have (or have had) any traits, powers or abilities upon creation that a regular character of the same class, level, race and template would not have.

- Characters must represent the setting of origin for their subrace and template and cannot have experiences beyond this setting with the exception of their arrival within Ravenloft.

- Characters from unsupported settings and homebrew worlds can only choose the standard supported D&D races and must adhere to the standard D&D appearance and traits for that race (eg. no gelflings, no witcher, no dark elves from WoW, no snow elves from The Elder Scrolls). They cannot start with a template.

Section 4: Interacting and Roleplaying

Quote
- No "Cheesing": "Cheesing" is the act of playing your character as if they have an ability or feat which the NWN engine would not otherwise allow them to have. "Cheesing" could also mean playing your character as being a race, template, class or otherwise that isn't applied to your character through the game. An example could be playing out a character as a vampire even if the character is not setup to be that.

Added a new section to the rules, section 7, to cover live streaming on Prisoners of the Mist. Read the following announcement for further context.

Quote
- Players should have informed consent about being livestreamed at all times. If that is in doubt or not practical, streamers must stop broadcasting.

- When broadcasting, streamers should activate streamer mode using @streaming. Using @streaming list will show all players currently streaming.

- Streaming of public roleplay taking place in open areas such as the Western Outskirts, Keep of the Dyad - Arrival, open taverns, etc., is always allowed - consent is assumed in these places. If in doubt, consult a DM.

- Streaming of semi-private roleplay such as whispered conversations, dungeon runs, encounters with monstrous player characters, etc., should only be done with the consent of those present.

- Streaming of scheduled DM and player-run events can be done only with the consent of the event organizer, consent which must be announced publicly ahead of time.

- Streaming of private or secretive roleplay and high-stakes conflict is not allowed.

- Failure to follow the live streaming rules constitutes a rulebreak under General Neglect of the Rules.

Updated Section 1: Character Story & Creation to add support to favored souls with no favored weapon following the hak update:

Quote
- Favored souls must worship a deity from their setting of origin. They are required to select the favored weapon of their chosen deity, as listed on the forums. If the chosen deity has no favored weapon, they cannot have one and must select the Favored Weapon (None) feat.

Updated Section 1: Character Story & Creation to add support for healers:

Quote
- If required by the setting of origin, druids, healers, paladins and rangers must also possess a deity, or they will be unable to level up.

- Generally, paladins and healers may not follow evil deities. However if the setting of origin explicitly supports such a concept, an application for an exception may be submitted to the DM Team for review.
