Character Creation and Advancement
Characters start off at 1st level. You can use either the standard ability array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) or point-buy for your character’s ability scores (as listed in the first chapter of the Player’s Handbook). You don’t roll for hit points – simply take the maximum for your class at 1st level, and the average+1 for subsequent levels (modified by Constitution, as normal). Take your class and background gear as listed; you may swap out the weapons listed for other similarly priced weapons if you choose (pay the difference from your small amount of starting money).
You can use the following resources for character creation:
