Okay, I'm in trouble. I admit that I don't know much about D&D, but there's a wiki and a bunch of campaign comics so I figured I would be fine. I'm lost now.

I was figuring out feats for the PCs, and I noticed that one feat I wanted needs another feat first, and that got me thinking: how many feats can a 1st level PC have? Can they take a reasonable feat outside of their class that fits their play style? I would like help please. :(

And here's the "-X" HP that I was referring to last page.

Life Points
Odd: 10 HP

Transcript

Taylor: Moving on. Now that Odd’s in Lyoko, Jeremie can communicate with him.
Andy: Do I see him?
Taylor: No, you just hear his voice.
Andy (Odd): Jeremie? Are you with that dognapper?
Stein (Jeremie): Err. . . I had no knowledge of what he was doing.
Eric: He’s lying! He knew! His character knew!
Andy: It’s cool. I know.
Andy (Odd): So, where the hell am I? In a video game?
Stein (Jeremie): Actually, I don’t really know. It’s a virtual world; that much I’m sure of.
Taylor: Roll perception.
<ROLL>
Andy: Aw, man.
Taylor: You look around in wonder before. . .
<WHAM!>
[Odd is shot in the back by a laser. -10 HP.]
Andy: Really?! By those roaches?
Taylor: Blame the dice, not me.

for D&D, 1 feat for a 1st level character. Humans get a second feat for free. Fighters also get a free feat at 1st level, but they are considered one of the weakest classes due to having no class abilities other than free feats. Odd should have two feats at first level. What class is Odd? I assume either a Ranger or Rogue.

Okay, thank you. That was what the wiki said, but I'd figure I'd get it confirmed. Odd is actually neither a ranger or a rogue. I found something outside the base classes that seemed fitting to me. Can you wait until next week to find out?

I'll admit, I think I tweaked what Odd can do with first level class-wise, but I will strive for accuracy for everything else.

Slightly wrong terminology there. Base classes are classes you can take at character level 1. Wizard, Barbarian, Fighter, Monk, Swashbuckler, Ninja, Psion, Wilder, Hexblade, Knight, and Samurai are just a few options.

Core classes on the otherhand are the base classes described in the Player's Handbook.

Prestige Classes are classes that you can't take at level 1 and have to fulfill requirements for. Eldritch Knight, Arcane Archer, Cerebremencaer, Animal Lord, Daggerspell Mage, Temple Raider of Olidammara, and Blackguard just to name a few.

So what are advanced classes? In between base class and prestige class?

What are you talking about? There's no such thing.

I was looking at MSRD for some of the classes. http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/MSRD:Classes
Sorry for the confusion.

Ask the GM. That's the best advice I have. A GM/DM runs the game, the rules are secondary to what they say goes. Meaning a GM might decide yeah, sure, it fits your character so go for it. Of course they could also say no way.

The strict rules only matter so long as the GM adheres strictly to them, when they choose.

Hmm, okay, thank you. That helps if I want to tweak some rules.
