    Just a quick question. How does everyone want character information displayed in the Atlas. With the changes wrought by the revision to the BRCS, this will mean I'll need to go through all the current Atlas information to rewrite the info from the various NPCs.

    Currently, a character is listed with their old 2E information.
    e.g. Darien Avan (MA; F9; An, great, 70; LN)

    What I'm considering is the following, which matches up with what is used in various published Settings (FR, Eberron, etc).
    e.g. Prince Darien Avan (LN male anuirean, fighter 9/scion 2; Scion of Anduiras, great, 70)

    Everyone happy with that? If not please provide an alternative or suggestion, and please don't comment on Avan's levels or class, you'll get an opportunity to do that in a shortly

    Oh, and this may seem like a minor issue, but I'd like to have it finalised before I go through the Atlas material changing a hundred or so regent's and other NPC's info. I'll also be posting a topic shortly where you will get the chance to discuss the current levels and classes of all regents in Anuire and make necessary changes.

    I would prefer:

    Prince Darien Avan (LN male Anuirean, Ftr 9/Sci 2 [Anduiras, Great, 70])

    This layout makes the listing much more condensed, and still gets all of the appropriate information across.

    For those characters who do not have Scion levels, I would list them as:

    Joe Blow (NG male Anuirean, Rgr 3 [Brenna, Minor, 22])

    -Mike

    I like it, much neater.

    And for unblooded?

    Jonny Commoner (CE male Vos, Ftr 4 [Unblooded])
    or
    Jonny Commoner (CE male Vos, Ftr 4)

    And what about clerics? Do we list their deity, something like Clr[Haelyn] 13, or leave as Clr 13 and talk about deity in NPC description.

    Unblooded characters don't even need the Unblooded note -- the absence of information indicated an absence of Bloodline.

    As to Clerics, I'd use Clr 13 [Haelyn]

    I like Athos's suggestions, I'll second them as good additions. Definitely list the cleric's deity, since it is A BR rule that all clerics must have a patron deity.

    I agree, good suggestions. The only thing I didn't like was shortening Scion to Sci, although it makes sense for the other classes as it is done that way in most D&D products (including Dungeon, etc).
