  1. So You Rolled 1

    You rolled a 1? Dude, you're so fucked. You fall in the hole and die.

    "I DIE? It's only 4 feet! I'm 6 foot tall, how the hell do I DIE?"

    I don't know. Your deranged 2 Intelligence brain decides to do a flip but decides against it halfway? Don't make me narrate your broken 1 Constitution neck

    "You are the worst Dungeon Master ever. Like why would you make me keep those shit stat rolls if you knew I was just going to break my neck, or critically stub my toe and lose a fucking leg?"

    To be fair, that was hilarious

    "Yeah, fuck you. Jeez, I can't believe I wasted so much time with this."

    Ok, ok. because I am a merciful god, I'll ALLOW you to make a new character. No rolling dice, just make it balanced...ish.

    Make a DND character. Nothing too OP (like no giving yourself 20 of each stat or some such bullshit). And try to make it playable. Whatever level you like.

    So, uh, making RPG characters is actually kind of a hobby of mine. I've got a handful of them done up for a variety of systems, with varying degrees of backstory detail (leaving that open makes it easier to adapt them to the campaign after all). I chose this one in particular because 5E is quite simplistic in terms of character creation compared to most, and because Wizard is the class that I feel represents me best. Ability scores are generated using the default point-buy method.

    Forest Gnome Wizard/Rogue Background: Guild Artisan

    STR 8 DEX 14 CON 14 INT 17 WIS 10 CHA 12

    Proficiencies: Wizard weapons, (Light Armor), (Rogue Weapons), Alchemist's Lab, (Thieves' Tools)

    Skills: Insight, Persuasion, Arcana, Investigation, (Perception)

    Saving Throws: Intelligence, Wisdom

    Languages: Common, Gnomish, Draconic, (Thieves' Cant)

    Progression: 1st level Wizard, 2nd level Rogue, 3rd-20th level Wizard (Brackets indicate something learned from Rogue multiclass). Expertise Skills from Rogue: Investigation, Perception. Specialty School: Illusion. 5th-level: Feat (Tough). 9th-level: Feat (Linguist). 13th-level: Feat (Observant - ability score point in INT). 17th-level: Feat (Keen Mind). 20th-level: +2 DEX.

    This character is meant to be a resourceful kind of caster, the type who tries to have a solution to the miscellaneous obstacles that bar the party's progress in ways the other members might not be well-equipped to deal with. In practice, much like a bard, but operating off of guile and discretion rather than flair. I don't have any roleplaying info done on any of my 5E premades, so this is more of a "character plan" than an actual full-fledged character, but I often have trouble coming up with those details without a world and a party for the character to exist in.

    I didn't detail all the class abilities that would be unlocked, because that would make this incredibly long and tedious, but I did lay out any mechanical choices that would have to be made.
