I've made some pretty substantial changes to the alpha sheets behind the scenes, and to the Pathfinder [Legacy] sheet in particular. Please try clearing your browser cache, or post in the Experimental Features forum if there are any issues!
At this point, we highly recommend that all new Pathfinder sheets be created in the alpha and that existing Pathfinder sheets be copied into it via the 'Copy to Sheets Alpha' link in your regular sheet list
How much do our characters know of the quest ahead of time? Would it be bad form to already be on a quest to find the Rod?
I'm surprised no one was creating a Genasi, with the Wind Dukes of the legend being Air Genasi. It would have fit nicely to play some sort of one.
At the start, you aren't even aware that the rod exists. You are just starting out with your adventuring career, but will gain knowledge of the rod, its use, and how to go about looking for it in due time.
