I will be running a group of four characters through I1 Dwellers of the Forbidden City, an old TSR module for the first edition of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. We will be using house-ruled Labyrinth Lord and the Advanced Edition Companion for this game which should emulate 1st ed. Rules pretty well. As the game was requested by SCARY WIZARD, he has already taken one of the slots. The other three will be competitively selected from applications. Check out the house rule PDF here

, roll stats for a character here
, and post the character in this thread
Create the character you want don't worry about what the party needs! I am much more concerned that the players have fun and create a character that they want to play than that the party be balanced.
Start with 5001xp
Alignments allowed are LG, NG, CG, LN and druids only TN

Pre-Adventuring career background
Character Description, this can be worked into the background.
Max HP+4 at first level only! Roll for subsequent levels.
Equip as a first level character. Roll for gold and purchase equipment.
Selected players will take some time before the adventure to work together to describe their adventuring career thus far; One or two adventures with some accomplishments (Vohg skewered that bugbear that was about to take Mishka’s head off with his cudgel.) This is to get the players to know the other character and to get into the mindset of them already being a group.
Selected characters will divide the following loot from their previous adventures (less cost of living and training.)
Gold necklace made to look like it is made of oak leaves 500gp
Statue; elven woman carved of maple wood inlaid with gold and platinum 500gp
