like in the games there will be special quests that are crucial for certain characters to advance, for example i plan to have my character have a deep hatred for the Teostra and Lunastra so when a quest to hunt the mated pair that took out his small mining village in the volcanic region comes up, he will be one of the four hunters there.
as far as weapons are concerned i will be using the weapons list from freedom 2 and unite as the idea of the switch axe seems pointless to me however if you have a weapon type you would like to use then post it in the ooc thread and if everyone approves then its all yours.
and lastly, if we do have an odd amount of characters then we can either say we don't have to have four hunters on each quest or if you really think we need to then some players may bring in a second character to even everything out.
also a few more things to add, i'll be using the benifits of the feline battle buddies from freedom 3 so as long as there are at least two hunters on a quest then they can have two felines, i'll be limiting everyone to have only one feline commrade throughout the whole game though. i'll also be trusting everyone to be responcible and not overpower there characters with weapons and armor they shouldn't have yet.
