Character Creation

Create your character using the most current D&D Next playtest packet (March 20). For ability scores, use “Optional Rule: Customizing Ability Scores,” or use the standard stat array [15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 08]. Once you create your character, bring him to 3rd level.

  • +1 Melee OR Ranged Weapon [Human, Dwarven, or Elven make]
