How will character creation work

Character creation will take place as part of Session 0 (or a one-to-one character creation before your first session if joining later in the campaign) so there’s no pressure to know how to create a character beforehand! And if you like, there are ✨pre-made characters available✨ for you to use if you don't want to have to worry about character creation. Characters will start at level 5 and, due to this being a continuation of our the beginner friendly campaign, will be created using the basic and/or core rules (character options from the Players Handbook shared with you via D&D Beyond).
