D&D: Character Creation

Your Character

D&D is about Roleplaying, getting creative. When you are creating your character you must consider a few things. 

  • Who do you want to play?
  • Which Class will you play?
  • Which Race are you? 
  • What is your back story?
  • What is it that motivates your Character?
  • Are you good or evil?

You can choose to create a character from scratch or you may choose a pre-generated character.

It is easier to choose a pregenerated character because the stats (your character's skills and abilities) are already assigned and worked out for you. 

Even with these characters, it's important that you still get creative about who you are and where you came from? And most importantly where you are going!

Characters are created using Character sheets. These sheets record details about your character including:

  • Your skills and abilities
  • Weapons, items or money 
  • Languages and talents 
  • Your race and class
  • Your Health Points

Many of aspects of your character your decide. However, the Players Handbook decides on your characters STATS.
