Session 8: Character Creation 101
This week Gabe and Orion take a step back from class analysis, and enter the new player seat to go through the process of creating a character. Listen as we go over some character races, choosing classes, generating ability scores, backgrounds and basic backstory, equipment, and some basic level up processes. We used D&D Beyond to organize our characters, however it's just as easy to use purely the PHB races, classes, and their recommended process in creating a character. This episode is definitely less organized than previous episodes, so hopefully it is helpful in your character creation.
