Hi guys,

Here is the building of a character using the freebooter class from the Freeport book.

Keeping the number of supplements down sounds sensible. I saw someone, somewhere, who was talking about "core rules" + "special guest book". I thought that was an interesting way to restrict the game down and make everyone use rules that were designed to be used together.

So I guess the bio of the PC wouldn't really change from before they were reincarnated.

I hadn't heard of that approach until D&D 5e started releasing supplements. It's a good idea. I'm a little surprised I'd never heard of it prior to around 2015. I think it appeals to a certain type of player/GM, though. Some people truly get the most fun out of mixing and matching to make precisely the PC they've envision in their mind's eye. Others want to eek every mechanical benefit they can (which is likely the group the rule is intended to curtail, but it can still cut into their fun).
