D&D 5E Character Creation
Be civil to one another - Unacceptable behavior includes name calling, taunting, baiting, flaming, etc. The intent is for everyone to act as civil adults. Respect the opinions of others - Each table is unique; just because someone plays differently to you it does not make them wrong. You don't have to agree with them, but you also don't have to argue or harass them about it. Do not suggest ways for such material to be obtained. Use clear, concise title names - Titles must be clear, concise, and not worded in a misleading fashion.
Dungeons and Dragons is a pen and paper role-playing game published by Wizards of the Coast. Prior to playing a game of Dungeons and Dragons, you need to create a character. This task can be daunting, especially for new players. Below you will find a step by step process that will help you get ready for your first game. While all of the information included in this set of instructions can be found by reading the Player Handbook, they have been grouped together in a manner to efficiently fill out your character sheet. NOTE - Throughout these instructions, page numbers are listed with the various steps where applicable.
Updated: May It may seem daunting, but unlike 4th edition character sheets, which are super complicated, 5th edition forms are a lot easier to manage. New players, however, may still find it difficult to visually understand what each field represents without asking a more experienced player or referencing the Player's Handbook or the internet. So in an effort to encourage curious players to play, I have created what I believe to be a decent guide defining what the common elements on the page mean, so you are able to fill it out with fewer complications. You will need to reference the Player's Handbook PHB for your specific character's details in order to properly create a character.
Need a few quick pre-gens for a game convention or organized play group at your local game store? Your cousin from out of town wants to sit in and join this week's game? The party insists on hiring that NPC to join them for the adventure? That failed stealth check got half the party killed and now the fallen are playing back-up reinforcements? Fast Character gets you playing fast.
