    okay, how do i determine stats and stuff for a character? I was going to do either a wood elf druid, or a very huggy and physically affectionate 8' tall tiefling, of undetermined class (maybe monk?)

    [Edit:] Would one of those be more useful in the party than the other?

    we have neither a druid nor a monk, so either ought to look. the party already has a tiefling and possibly a wood elf, so those'd be equal, pretty much. (also keep in mind that your 8' tall tiefling could be a druid if you wanted.) as far as generating stats:
    if you need help figuring out to do with those die rolls, the Player's Handbook will take you through the whole process step-by-step. :)

    would you like me to PM it to you? I have the whole file, but I'd rather not post it in the thread.

    This is one of those things about online gaming. IRL, people could just pass each other the physical copy. With distant friends, you gotta resort to the occasional black flag hoisting. Esp. since I don't think they ever did official pdfs for 5th edition?

    I'm not sure? I haven't seen them for sale or anything, but someone did a dang good job scanning the one I have if it's not official. looks pretty professional and all.

    yeah! also I have a physical copy that I got as a gift and don't really need, so if someone wants it and is willing to pay postage, I can totally mail it to them. :)

    If I hadn't just ordered a player manual on amazon for 23 dollars I would have taken you up on that.

    you know that feeling when it's a struggle to choose between CN and LN with a code that looks CN from some points of view?

    (not like I've put the personal code into words yet, but I can feel it)

    Do you have/know the variant options for them? I think I posted them earlier in the thread, can dig them up if you're interested and haven't looked at 'em, some might be useful/interesting to you.

    I didn't see the tiefling variants, but I saw the woodelf variants. I'm just going off my players guide for now though. Thanks for the offer! I don't wanna get too complicated since this is my first character.

    so i'm thinking about switching to human in order to get rid of those negative modifiers. i'm definitely not going to do variant human because i can't handle the choices that would require.

    but man

    humans get the jack-of-all-stats treatment and then get nothing else if you don't go variant human (aside from an extra language of your choice). hrmm.

    dark lavender skin with red eyes. Horns are adorned with simple wood decorations tied on with rope. He wears a hood most of the time. His leather armor is decorated some with patterns of vines painted on. his armor and clothes are otherwise fairly simple.

    Quiet and reserved, most assume Vitae is completely oblivious to those around him. In reality, he just doesn't know how to act around others, and prefers to observe them for a time before attempting to interact.

    Vitae's parents were murdered in the woods by a dragon cult when they and Vitae were travelling when he was 7 or so. A druid passing through the area killed the cultists, and then raised Vitae when nobody else would take him. His adopted father was killed attempting to protect the forest from the cultists a year ago, prompting Vitae to learn draconic and research on ways to protect other forests from the dragon. He's been travelling to try and find out more about the cult, and possibly eliminate them.

    @esotericPrognosticator Does that look good to you? Its late here and i'm tired, i'll probably mess with the background a bit at some point. Let me know if anything seems off or needs to be changed.
    [Edit:] Fixed up again!

    Yeaaah. Basic human is pretty rough. Variant human is crazy-good, but hell for indecision.

    EDIT: Rough isn't totally bad, just weirdly limited given the broadness of their skill boosts and how everything else works out.

    Thing I'm noticing that looks odd is your skills. They should generally just be "stat modifier (the number in parentheses after the stat) + proficiency modifier (+2 right now)". Not sure where the 20s and such came from, possibly rolling for them as well? Same for the saving throws, and the attack bonus.

    @NevermorePoe I'm working on character sheet feedback for you, but in the meantime, could you please edit your first character sheet instead of posting a new one every time? it might get confusing re: which one is your official sheet.
