Geas of the Gods
Generating Ability Scores
For this campaign, please use the Purchase method of ability score generation from the Pathfinder Core Rulebook p. 15. You may spend 20 points on Ability Scores, using Table 1-1 on p. 16.
The mythological setting of this campaign means that, in many cases, adventurers and heroes may hail from unique backgrounds. Players may opt to create such a character using the rules for playing a monstrous character found on p. 314 of the Pathfinder Bestiary. The recommended level structure found in that rulebook entry will also be used, though players should note that they will gain additional levels through the course of play, and at the GMs discretion, not at character creation.
Standard character races, both new and familiar, that are not unusual for this campaign setting are as follows. Please see the Wiki entry linked below for more information, as the racial traits or setting notes may vary from those in typical Pathfinder RPG settings.
|Brownie||Nearly every forested region has colonies of these diminutive, enigmatic people.|
|Caballaur||These smaller cousins of centaurs deal often with Man, whether through cooperation or conflict.|
|God-touched||Due to the mingling of demigods and Man, those with divine heritage are not rare.|
|Human||The common race of Men inhabit much of the temperate, pastoral regions of the world.|
|Hobgoblin||Fecundity personified, hobgoblins are a potent force during the Bronze Age.|
|Lizardfolk||The sandy-scaled folk are known for the temples they build in desolate regions.|
|Willowing||Willowings are hardy and clever tree-folk with mythical origins as a communal wood.|
Please note that the standard races found in the Pathfinder RPG are not commonplace in Kosm, and as such, their use by players will be considered in the same vein as monster races as above.

Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: Linking with different text
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, the easiest thing is to use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a wiki link, just with a colon at the start.
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
