DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS 5TH EDITION CHARACTER CREATOR

Post by White Mage Slave on Wed 10 Dec 2014, 9:51 pm

D&D 5E is out in all of its glory, and thankfully, the system is far, FAR simpler to play than 3.5! This thread is here to walk you through the creation of a character in the system. 

As for being able to view all of the options yourself, it is unfortunately not quite as simple as heading to the nearest wiki and perusing it like it was with 3.5. If you're willing, the following link will take you to a full download of the player's handbook.

mediafire.com folder/z7zgas8lm1cw2/Gaming#wxs6efp8ymhc2 

Alternatively, the following link gives you the "basic rules" which are probably a lot easier for new players to peruse. They just also happen to have far more restricted player options (lack of races and classes). They also have character sheets you can use if you want to keep better track of all your stuff!

http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/trpg-resources

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO CREATE A CHARACTER

1st, choose your stats. Roll 4d6 (four six-sided dice), and drop the lowest number from each one. This is a single ability. Do this five more times for six total ability scores to use. Personally, I allow making three such sets and choosing your favorite. The six stats these can be assigned to are Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma.

The "average" ability set is 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, and 8. You may choose to use this set instead of rolling; however, rolling provides a decent chance of gaining a very powerful set of stats.

Next, pick what type of character you want. Do you want a spellcaster, supporting from the back? A knight, defending from the front? An archer, sniping from the shadows? After you have the idea of your character in mind, choose a suitable class for your character. Each class has multiple ways to play it, so don't be discouraged if your character concept is not immediately obvious.

Different from 3.5e are skill proficiencies. Rather than investing skills into skill ranks to perform skills, you have a proficiency bonus you can apply to all skills you are proficient in.

After selecting a class, or perhaps before that depending on the person, you pick a race for your character. A race has ability score bonuses that can make your character better at their job, as well as miscellaneous bonuses, such as languages, nightvision, and proficiencies.

Backgrounds are a new feature of 5th edition. They give you ideas of how to roleplay as your character, as well as additional proficiencies and equipment. An example Background would be a Sailor; sailors would gain skill proficiences such as navigation and sailing, and start the game with extra rope. Each background also as a roleplaying feature, which often allow you to find services or plot hooks. A sailor's allows them to call in favors so they can get passage on a ship. Backgrounds are the easiest part of the system to just make up; if you can't find one you like, just make one along the same guidelines (Two Skills, Two Tools and/or languages, equipment, roleplaying feature, etc.)

If your character would gain a skill proficiency from their background that their race or class already gave them, just pick a new one of your choice.

Backgrounds are also a source of personality traits; you may choose the ones on the lists provided, or just make them up yourself as appropriate. Typically, you have two Personality Traits, one Ideal you aspire to, one Bond you hold yourself to, and one Flaw that haunts you.

I will post a sample character shortly!

CHARACTER OPTIONS FROM THE PLAYER'S HANDBOOK

RACES 

Humans: Duh. The advantage of humans is that they can start with a feat if you want.
Halflings: Little people, good at sneaking. Braver than they look.
Dwarves: Short but strong and good with crafting.
Elves: Beautiful people deadly with spells and bows.
Dragonborn: Strong and powerful lizardmen with breath as bad as it sounds.
Tieflings: Half-demons striving to be good people in a world that hates them.
Gnomes: Big hearts, small bodies, and a love of having fun.
Half-Elves: Half human, half elf, hated by both, but accepted by everyone else.
Half-Orcs: Half-humans who either reject or embrace their orcish heritage.

Classes: 
Barbarians: Savage warriors who either go completely berserk or enhance themselves with totemic spirits.

Bards: Entertainers who either try to learn history or become a part of it.

Clerics: Priests of the Divine, these casters can range from effective healers to front-line warriors.

Druids: One with nature, these casters either learn to manipulate nature to their whims, or become one with it by adopting a beastly form.

Fighters: The average warrior is no weaker for choosing simply to trust their sword and their shield. Fighters may become solo champions, leaders and tacticians, or choose magic to enhance their swordplay.

Monks: Warriors who studied martial arts and self-control to an extreme. Monks can focus on hand-to-hand combat, assassinations, or bending the elements to their will.

Paladins: Warriors who swear an oath to the gods, to nature, or an oath of vengeance upon those who have wronged them, and gain power from it.

Rangers: Warriors who specialize in surviving in the wilderness. Rangers can specialize in hunting a special foe, or in taming an animal to do it for them.

Rogues: Stealthy characters, Rogues would rather end a fight before it starts, or avoid them altogether. They can specialize in theft, assassination, or using magic to do their dirty work for them.

Sorcerers: Casters born with magic power in their blood, these casters channel magic to explosive ends.

Warlocks: Casters who made a pact with a higher power to obtain power and knowledge of their own in exchange for their services, for good or ill.

Wizards: Casters that studied magic extensively and cast using their spellbooks rather than any natural power of their own.

Backgrounds: Acolytes, Charlatans, Criminals, Entertainers, Folk Heroes, Gladiators, Guild Artisans/Merchants,  Hermits, Knights, Nobles, Outlanders, Pirates, Sages, Sailors, Soldiers, Urchins

Favored Terrain: Coastal. 
*Difficult terrain doesn't slow your group's travel. 
*Your group can't become lost except by magical means. 
*Even when you are engaged in another activity while traveling (foraging, navigating, tracking, etc.), you remain alert to danger.
*If you are traveling alone, you can move steathily at a normal pace.
*When you forage, you find twice as much food as normal.
*While tracking other creatures, you also learn their exact number, their sizes, and how long ago they passed through the area.

You might sail on the ship you served on, or another ship you have good relations with. You can't be certain of the schedule or route, or that every need will be met. In return for passage, you have to work.

Personality: Resourceful and skilled on a ship, Quills likes her some efficiency. She prefers to get things done quickly and hates when someone takes too long for her tastes. This isn't impatience, but an understanding of the minimum amount of time necessary for things to get done- or so she says. She HATES pirates, always taking their treasures through illegitimate means and such, so she personally makes it a goal that she takes THEIR treasure from them, and then usually just keeps it. She also prefers to not be associated with her original clans, personal problems.

Re: DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS 5TH EDITION CHARACTER CREATOR

Post by White Mage Slave on Sat 13 Dec 2014, 10:07 pm

Here's your other character, David. Needs spells.
DAVID IS HIGHJACKING THIS ONE AS WELL FROM NOW ON!

LEVEL 5 Dragonborn Evocation Wizard
Name: Biri --- Childhood Name: Swim Runner
Appearance: http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1612&d=1249252847

STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA
14  14  12  16  15  14

HIT DICE: 1d6 + 1
TOTAL HP: 26

Proficiency Bonus: +3
Armor: None
Weapons: Daggers, darts, slings, quarterstaffs, light crossbows
Tools: None
Saves: Intelligence, Wisdom
Skills:  Arcana, History, Religion, Investigation
Languages: Common, Draconic, Elvish, Deep Speech

STARTING EQUIPMENT
A quarterstaff, an arcane focus, a scholar's pack, a spellbook, a book that "Can not" be written in,

RACIAL FEATS
Draconic Ancestry: Bronze dragon
Breath Weapon: DC 12 (8 + Prof + Con) Dex Save.  5 by 30 ft line. 2d6 lightning damage on a 

failed save, 1d6 on a success.
Damage Resistance: Lightning
Amphibious: You can breathe underwater.

FEATS
Arcane Recovery: Once per day, when you finish a short rest, you may recover spell slots 

equal to or less than half of your level, rounded up. (5th level wizard = 3. 3 level 1 

slots, 1 level 2 and 1 level 1, or 1 level 3.)

Evocation Savant: Time and gold cost to copy evocation spells into your spellbook is 

halved.

Sculpt Spells: When you cast an evocation spell that affects other creatures that you can 

see, you can choose a number of them equal to 1 + the spell's level. These creatures avoid 

damage entirely.

BACKGROUND CHOICES
Sage
Wizard's Apprentice
Researcher: If you attempt to learn or fail to recall a piece of lore, you know where you 
can obtain it. Usually, this is in a library, scriptorium, university, or a sage. This may 
require a separate adventure or even campaign to obtain.

Personality: Due to not knowing his own clan despite being a Dragonborn, she has spent his life deep in learning. Her obsession with knowledge is one that is barely rivaled by the amount of knowledge she already possesses after a lifetime of reading. While she may keep her nose in the books most of the time, she is no stranger to communicating with others. She comes off as socially awkward due to a combination of being a Dragonborn and being an intellectual, making it hard for some to really get to know her. She can overcome this at times however simply with communication, for those who are willing to listen. She gets excited when meeting new Dragonborn for the first time, trying to find out as much about their clan as possible, although many remain tight-lipped when speaking to one who is without a clan herself. The reason she is on the crew is to discover as much as she can about the world by experiencing it herself.
Ideal: Attaining Knowledge
Bond: Discovery of her Clan
Flaw: Destruction of Books, artifacts, or things from history

ACTIONS
Quarterstaff: +5 to hit, 1d6+2 or 1d8+2 bludgeoning damage

SPELLS
Cantrips known: 4
Spells known: 14 spells total
Spell slots: 4 1st level spells, 3 2nd level spells, 2 3rd level spells
Spells Prepared: 8 (Level + Int)

Starting Spells Must Be: 8 spells must be 1st level. 4 may be 2nd level or lower. 2 may be 3rd level or lower. 
Spell Save: DC 14 (8 + Prof + Int)

Spells:

Cantrips: Mending, Fire Bolt, Ray of Frost, Light
1st Level: Feather Fall, Magic Missile, Witch Bolt, Chromatic Orb, Unseen Servant, Burning Hands, Thunderwave, Shield
2nd Level: Shatter, Misty Step, See Invisibility, Invisibility
3rd Level: Fireball, Fly

At Will


1/rest

Lightning Breath Weapon: Once every time Biri rests, she can breathe lightning in a 5x30 ft. line. The DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your Constitution modifier + your proficiency bonus. A creature takes 2d6 damage on a failed save and half as much damage on a successful one. The damage increases to 3d6 at 6th level. 4d6 at 11th level, and 5d6 at 16th level.
