Timmy's Leveling Checklist

Here’s a list of steps to follow when advancing a character.

  • Hit Points
    The DM will roll the dice, and add that to the characters CON modifier.
  • Base Attack Bonus
    Check your class entry to see if your base attack bonus increases when you level up. Some classes, such as barbarian, fighter, paladin, and ranger, have a base attack bonus that increases at every level. Others advance slower
  • Saving Throws
    Make sure you update your saving throws to match your class entry, and don’t forget any bonuses from feats (Great Fortitude / Iron Will / Lightning Reflexes) or from special class features (like the paladin’s Divine Grace).
  • Class Features
    Check your class entry to see what cool new class features you get at a particular level. These are very important, so make sure you read and understand what your new class features do, as they give you more options and make you better at what you already do!
  • Skill Ranks
    Your class entry tells you how many skill points you gain at each level up. Remember to add your Intelligence modifier and whatever other bonus skill points you gain, such as the bonus skill for being human or from his favored class bonus. Remember that your number of ranks in a given skill cannot exceed your character level, and that you gain a +3 bonus on class skills you put ranks in.
  • Feats
    Some classes gain bonus feats from class-specific lists as they level up, and all characters gain bonus feats at levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19. Make sure you meet a feat’s prerequisite before you add it to your sheet!
  • Favored Class Bonus
    Your favored class was chosen by you when you first made your character, and this selection doesn’t change. If you gained a level in your favored class, you get to choose between +1 bonus HP or +1 skill rank.
  • Spells
    Your class entry will tell you how many spells per day your character has, and if you’re a bard or sorcerer, how many spells you know. Remember to keep track of bonus spells due to having a high casting ability score, as well as domain and bloodline spells.
  • Ability Score Increase
    At levels 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20, characters choose one ability score to permanently increase by 1.
  • Double Check
    Make sure you didn’t miss anything, and contact the DM if you need any assistance whatsoever! That’s what hes there for!
