Character Generation

Character races are limited to the core races only. Gnomes are not allowed as they do not fit the campaign concept. These races may be fleshed out with Pathfinder appropriate supplementary material such as the Dwarves of Golarion supplement, etc.

  • Allowed PC classes are listed below.
  • One Archetype per class, two Traits per character and one Drawback (optional) may be taken at the time of character creation.
  • Prestige Classes are not allowed.
  • Character concepts which focus on necromantic, Undead, Demonic, or Devil themed character builds and backgrounds are not appropriate for the campaign.
  • LCM Campaigns begin at level 1 to better allow players to get used to the variant rules found in LCM settings.

Starting Character points: 20

Characters gain an additional stat point every even level, with feats every odd level. NOTE: Character base Stats may never be pushed higher than 18 + / – racial adjustment without some form of magical or alchemical assistance (Bull Strength, Barbarian Rage, Alchemical Mutagen, etc).

Hit points: max HP at first level, following which roll twice (reroll any 1’s) and take the best result at each new level gain.

Bonus Spells from High Stats: All bonus spells are available at 1st level.

Skills: Due to a higher reliance on skills over magic in LCM campaigns, all classes gain a bonus of + 2 skills points at first level, and + 2 skill points per level there after.


  • Characters may have a max of 2 classes, with a level difference not greater than a 2:1 ratio.
  • Only one spell casting class allowed in a multi-class IE; Cleric 8 / Barbarian 4.

Note: The multi-class restrictions were specifically put into place to avoid “splashing” or “dipping” into another class for meta-gaming purposes.

  • Languages & Literacy Common is the only language frequently spoken in the campaign, and illiteracy is so common as to be the norm. Mages, Clerics and classes with a similar “academic” background are literate as a class feature. (Refer to Skills and Feats for more information.)


The following classes are allowed in an LCM campaign. NOTE: all spells are hard capped at 6th level, zero level spells / cantrips / orisons are banned, and max character level is 13th (NPC’s are capped at 10th).

Within LCM campaigns the class are broken down into 4 categories:

Paladin – Non-spell casters with divine blessings
Templars – Fighters, monks, etc dedicated to the Temple.

Alchemist – represent fully 1/2 of all casters in the campaign
Wizard – Based on the Arcanist Base Class

Barbarian – Unchained

Martial / Skill based
Rogue – Unchained

Prestige Classes are not allowed under the LCM Ruleset. Use traits, and archetypes instead.
