Character Creation

Back to the Main Wiki Page

To create a character in this game the following books can (and SHOULD be used):

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Rulebook

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Unearthed Arcana

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon Master’s Guide

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Dungeoneers Survival Guide

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Wilderness Survival Guide

Any other source must be vetted first by the Dungeon Master


  • Statistic Generation Method V (five) found on page 74 of the Unearthed Arcana is only for use by Human Characters. Demi-Human characters may only use Methods I (one) through IV (four) on page 11 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide…player’s choice of which method is used.
  • Each player starts the game with the maximum allowed funds for their character class (multi-classed Demi-Humans get the largest for a single class, not the combined totals for more than one class).
  • Barbarian Player Characters are at this time discouraged. While not outright denied access to play as a PC, the class does not interact well with spell casting classes, and so would not adventure with PCs who are Magic-Users or Illusionists…or even Clerics early on.
