Player Guide: Playing previous characters from other servers

Sometimes people like playing characters they played elsewhere. They like the concept, the memories, they know the character well, whatever the reason. While we don't prevent people from playing previous characters, we do ask players to make a few careful considerations before attempting to do so:

1. No characters will be imported.
Level and equipment and such will not be given to the character. This leads us to the second point.

2. The servers rules for races, classes and such always apply.
No special races or powers will be given (like Drow, werecreatures or extraplanar powers/origins). You are limited in the same way as any other character. This also has implications on roleplaying the character. Which brings us to our third point.

3. Roleplay your character as they are on the server properly.
All characters start at level 1 and will be at that level of power. While your character may have wrestled dragons in the past, no one in their right mind would believe them after seeing the trouble a goblin provides. What's more, for consistency's sake you'd need both a good reason to be level 1 again and a good reason for your character to be in Impiltur, away from their friends and power base. For that reason we'd strongly recommend that if you really love a character, you let it go. Or at least play an alternate incarnation with a similar personality but none of the memories and experiences.
