Humans are the only starting race in Peranorn. While other races do exist, or have existed, most have a level adjustment or beyond the reach of this campaign.
Backgrounds can be selected in lieu of a human bonus feat and skill.
Classes are limited to these options.
Feats are gained at every odd level.
Flaws are available, with story.
Skills are gained as 3.5, with three exceptions: some skills are combined together, and all classes can select two skills that are normally not class skills, and all classes gain two additional skill points. Note that Magic is also skill-based.
Traits are available from the list.
Stats are 20 point buy, 3.5 values.
