Building Character: Starting Your Character in Dungeons and Dragons

Building Character: Starting Your Character in Dungeons and Dragons cover

You are a newbie to Dungeons and Dragons. And you got no idea on how to build and start your character. Cardkingpro will guide and help you to create one!

Probably in mind, you’ve already made your awesome new character’s backstory approved by your Dungeon Master (DM). Now you have to figure out their stats. Through stats, you will be able to determine the technical side of the character- whether you’re good at something or not. Stats are what you’ll be using to do the actual rolling in the game. Exciting, right?!

Various DMs handle the base stat creation of stats differently. Ask your Dungeon Master (DM) what they would have you do to create that.

Many DMs do point buy. This is a system where you have a set amount of points you can allocate to make a fairly balanced character. You can find a calculator that can help in calculating stats according to the standard point buy method here.

Other DMs do it differently and allow players to roll 4 six-sided dice and drop the lowest die amount wherein it allow the luck of the die to have some aspect in the creation of a character. The roleplay can be very interesting too as this allows players to potentially roll really fantastically for their stats, or perhaps end up with really low stats.

After the base stats are assigned to whichever ability scores you think is appropriate for your character, make sure you add the relevant racial bonuses. Check in the Player’s Handbook for your ability modifiers, and voila! You have your stats!

For sure, every game night would be fun as you are now set for a new adventure.
