Tier A PCs must be of Prime Material Plane origin, except with DM approval. Because the planar societies of these races live in the realm of their deities, there must be a compelling reason for planar elves, etc. to leave their version of heaven!

Tier B characters may be prime or planar with no restrictions other than listed planes of origin.

Tieflings have the option to randomly generate special appearance characteristics by rolling 1d4 times on the Tiefling Appearance chart.

Githyanki (Astral Plane origin) are also permitted in this campaign. Please confer with the DM beforehand, as choosing this PC will require more extensive planning and RP.
