Dungeons and Dragons: Character Creation

Dungeons and Dragons: Character Creation Walkthrough


So,

I started out by telling you I love Dungeons and Dragons, so why not do some tutorials and other stuff about it like I do with video games, so this time it is tabletop games.

First off you need to build your character, I’m going to provide two types of character sheets and act as the DM (Dungeon Master) for this scenario.

One you need to look up on Google, “Forged Anvil 5e Character Generator Ver. 1.64” this is the one I’m using and I’ll show you how to use it with screenshots, later on.

Second, Character Sheet is this PDF:
Character Sheet

If you use Forged Anvil, it does modifiers, darkvision for your class and everything that you need for you. It can be hard at first but it does make an excellent character sheet in the end.

Okay first off your stats,
You can roll for them: Roll 3 d6 (6 sided die) 6 times, twice then choose between the best one, for example:
10
14
17
12
11
11

or

9
11
13
17
10
10

You can tell which one I would choose, the first one. You would choose where to put what like; Dexterity, Intelligence, Strength, etc.

Then you build your character, you decide what race and what class. I choose Dragonborn and Bard, I choose Dragonborn because Bard’s don’t get spells very fast but Dragonborn’s get a spell right off the bat, you also can choose Entertainer as your background then choose Fire Eater or roll for it if you want to. My highest stat should go toward charisma (Bard Spells go off of Charisma), then probably dexterity and intelligence.

If you were a Druid, Elf or Druid, Gnome (like I have played) you should head toward intelligence and dexterity and ditch charisma (maybe strength too). If you rely on spells (like a druid does) you usually don’t need strength and if you don’t need a high charisma or not being lead of your party, then ditch charisma as well, for the background of these two, the elf I choose Outlander (due to her backstory) and Sage for the gnome (again due to the backstory), it all depends how you character is built.

What you need to choose all this is The Players Handbook, 5e. I cannot provide it for you, you may be able to find a pdf online, if it’s available or on Amazon for less than the selling price of $50, you may be able to get it used between $20-25 or check local book shops that sell used books, you could get lucky.

Well, I hope this was helpful in some way. I kinda rambled more than helped haha but I hope you guys enjoyed.
