    How will character creation work

    In session 0, we will create characters on D&D Beyond using the books and materials I have access to, which will be shared for the game. All you need to focus on is creating a backstory that fits neatly into the setting. If you wish to create your own character without running it past me first, we will be using the point buy system. All races are allowed, and all official WotC classes and subclasses are permitted. If you have a special fantasy about a character that is not within the official rules or items, please talk to me, and we can work something out.
