Original post here.

I will be rChris Hawesunning another tabletop RPG game at GAX. This time I am going to be running a D&D 5e game. Like last time, I’ll probably run short 1 – 2 hour games to allow for as many people to play as possible. Each game will have 5 spots for players. These are going to be more open though as I’m not running any pre-made modules.

If you don’t have the PHB you can either head on down to Game On and see if they have any copies available for purchase, or you can download the PDF of the D&D 5e Basic Rules provided by Wizards of the Coast. The link is below. All the necessary information for character creation is detailed in the PDF.

We will be using a point buy system for character creation. You have 27 points to use to create your character. The rules are all listed in the link below on page 8 of the PDF under “4. Describe Your Character”. To save time you can use the scores of 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8 instead and create your character from that. I am aware that other races have been released in recent content releases, however for simplicity we are going to stick to the races/classes found in the PHB only.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
