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.

  • Decide the region your character is from, and where they are now.
  • 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.
