Creating a 1st-level character

Start by getting the mechanics down. Then decide where your character fits in the world.

Mechanics

The easy way:

The slightly more labor-intensive way:

  • Decide race and class. Check out the Races and Classes page for detailed information.

  • Generate your ability scores. Couple of options here:
  • Pick background, skill proficiencies, and starting spells (if any).
  • Fill in all the ability score dependent values (skills, HP, saves, initiative, etc.).
  • Add your starting equipment.

Character sheets are here [.zip archive]: http://media.wizards.com/2014/downloads/dnd/5E_CHARACTERSHEETSV3.ZIP

Role-playing

  • Decide the region your character is from, and where they are now. (Check out the map!)

  • Consider what relationship your character has with the Cincture, the Church of the Three, and the Beacon.
  • Feel free to create a faction that your character belongs to or seeks entry to.
  • Walk through the questions in this guide, inventing as much or as little backstory for your character as you need or wish.

  • Email SteveKillen what you have, or pop on the discord to chat about it.
