Skull and Shackles
New Character options
New characters (created to replace fallen heroes) have the option of being of a different race. Here you can find a list of the possible creatures you can choose from.
The rules for creating such characters have changed since 3.5 seeing as how there no longer are level adjustments. To create a character simply copy the creatures stat-block from the monster manual. Than substract it’s CR from the current level and add that many class levels.
Do not change the creatures ability scores to the ones I gave at 1st level. The CR in the monster manual is based on the stats as mentioned there so you will have to take those.
example: you want to play the erinyes while at level 12:
she is a CR8 creature so you copy the stat block from the book and add 4 class-levels.
