Class Restrictions
Druids and Metal
Monks cannot multiclass with other base classes. Paladins who do so will be unable to progress further as paladins, and will lose all paladin abilities.
When multiclassing, at no time can a character's classes be more than 10 levels apart.
All prestige classes require a minimum investment of 5 levels by level 20

Subraces are restricted by setting of origin - when choosing your background you can see a list of allowed subraces.
   -Subraces are not supported for homebrew or non D&D settings - base race characters only.
Some ECL subraces require an application.

Character Customization

Deletions, Relevels and Remakes
Spoiler: show
Characters cannot be deleted from the server vault. You may make new player accounts in order to manage your character lists if desired.
You can use the @relevel command to re-take your last level up at any time, but you will lose all experience points gained since then.
      -Works once per level.
The Relevel Crystal can be used to fix mistakes you made earlier on. It offers a full relevel from level 2 up to 5 times, or 31 days since first use, whichever comes first.
      -The Relevel Crystal is intended to be used to fix mistakes or bad choices, not to 're-spec' your character, drastically alter them, nor to retroactively take levels in a PrC you have been approved for.

Systems and Mechanics
Spoiler: show
The Current Year
   -Time flows at the same rate as in the real world (1:1), even though the day/night cycle as well as the seasons follow the in-game clock. In other words, for every year in real life that passes, one year has passed in the game world.

Overview of Environmental and Immersion Systems
   -Weather affects many things, including Stealth and Detection skills.

Exhaustion System

Using Placable Spawn command in Rentals

Outcast Rating (OCR) System

Partying and Experience Points
Soloing is allowed, but the module is balanced for group play. Solo at your own risk, but we encourage you to adventure in groups.
The 'Join Party' function has been disabled. Experience Points are distributed based on proximity to a kill.
