As a player, you’ll need a character. Start by looking up information on races and classes. There are no restrictions for which races can be which classes, though some races and subraces suit certain classes better. Consult the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Player’s Handbook for complete explanations. Remember if character creation is overwhelming that there are Premade Characters (PDF) available.
MPMB character sheet generator (Eric owned)
E-mail Eric your stats or, better, yet, get with him on Facebook (our group page is a great way to do this) to either message him your stats or have him walk you through character creation. He’ll create a sheet for you as you go, as well as updating them after every session if you send him updates promptly. You may also opt to buy your own copy and do it on your own – whichever you prefer. If you don’t have time (or access to FB), or prefer to do it in person, we usually have at least one GM at our meetings for 10AM (an hour early) in order to help people create their characters, and to answer any questions you may have.
