Rules for E6

Character progression from level 1 to level 6 is as per D&D. Upon attaining 6th level, for each 5000 experience a character gains, they earn a new feat. A diverse selection of feats should be made available in any E6 campaign, however, feats with unattainable prerequisites under this system remain unattainable.

Creating a Character

Creating a character for E6 follows all the same rules as D&D 3.5e. When choosing a race follow the table presented below for determining the number of ability points you use at character creation:

LA Point buy
+0 32
+1 25
+2 18
+3 10
+4 00

Remember that LA and Racial HD are separate. A good example is the Gnoll race, which is LA +1 and has 2 Racial Hit Dice. If you wanted to make a 3rd level Gnoll for E6, you would take 25 point buy, this reduces your LA to 0. Then you would take the 2 Racial Hit Dice and 1 Class Level in a class of your choice.

Additional Feats for E6

As these feats are all homebrew, double-check with your DM to make sure he is using these for his E6 game.
