Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

This is for the folks who find themselves stuck during character creation. I'll ask you directed questions to help you find the minute information about your character. At your request, we can handle simple touch-ups to finish fleshing out a character, or we can even design this person together from a blank page to completion. I ask that you bring any setting information delivered to you by your GM, so that we can be sure you won't run into continuity issues down the line. This is less of a game and more of a service.

Additional Details

How to prepare

The only thing you need to have on hand for one of these sessions is a character sheet via whichever medium you choose(digital, pencil & paper, etc.), and any pertinent information your GM has given you to facilitate the creation process. No knowledge of the rules is required, I'll be happy to explain anything you'd like.

What I provide

When we come out the other side of one of these, you will walk away with a character fleshed out to the depth that you desire. That can take the form of a bulleted list of relevant backstory events, ideals, flaws, bonds, spells: whatever the case may be. If there's a spot on your sheet that is blank and it shouldn't be, I can help you fill it out.

Gameplay details

No gameplay here, just consulting. If you'd like, the directed questions can be asked in interview format, to allow you to test out voices and tones in character.

How will character creation work

This will be information you'll have to bring yourself. Any setting information(ex. maps, city names), stat methods(ex. point buy, 4d6 drop 1, etc.), and/or character limitations(ex. banned races, classes, alignments, etc.).
