From the ground up.

Starting at 1st level (to get a feel for the system) and continuing through Paragon levels.

This is primarily a game for role playing…there will of course be roll playing as well. The world is being created around the PCs as we go. Each of them submitted a back story to help flesh out the world, and to create hooks for further adventures. It is important to me as a DM that there be a significant connection between the players and the quests they will embark on. They are not mercenaries for hire (well, not all of the time)...there is a compelling reason for them to venture forth, and hopefully an equally compelling reward for them at the end.
