    This is a simplified, comedy-based Dungeons and Dragons campaign based on another actually serious campaign I'm playing. Nothing here will make sense. I am not sorry.
    I say simplified because I'm too small brain to do normal DnD and I will get everything wrong. Please correct me if you've played and I'm doing things wrong.
    If anyone wants to join but does not know how to create a character, that's what this thread is for! I'll guide you through character creation. Badly.

    Character Sheet (I will walk you through this)
    Name: Please look up the rules for your race. But then again this is crack so I don't really care. Sure, go ahead and name your dwark Bobella Bobertson XIV. I'll let it slide.
    Age:
    Personality:
    Race: Look at official races. Unless you're fine being a human.
    Class: Choose from my horrible descriptions below and Internet searchings.
    Alignment (Lawful to Chaotic, Good to Evil):

    Artificer: Magical Item Craft
    Barbarian: Scream and hit things
    Fighter: Hit things
    Monk: Punch things
    Cleric: Heal things in the name of your god
    Paladin: Smite things in the name of whatever you swore your oath to (which can be anything)
    Rogue: Sneaky stabby stealy extreme edgy
    Wizard: Yer a wizard harry now go to school
    Sorcerer: Yer a wizard harry, it's in yer blood (usually comes with epic backstory)
    Druid: Nature is cool
    Warlock: Eldritch Demon Worship
    Ranger: A fighter but also wild survival
    Bard: Singing

    If you want to know more about the class and precisely what you can choose, search it up on the Internet.

    Things I will do:
    - Follow the 5e rules.
    - Explain everything if you need help.
    - If you are struggling with choosing a race, I can make this a human-only party.
    - Stats will be personally rolled by me and bent a little so they should be well-rounded. I don't want someone flapping around having rolled 6s on everything and be sad while everyone else gets to have the fun. You get to choose where you allocate them.
    - This thread begins WITHOUT backgrounds. If you want to use backgrounds, we will discuss with the other members and decide whether or not we will use them.
    - Nothing 18+. I am a minor. Most of us are minors.

    @Barandofl
    All right, that's accepted to me!
    Rolling your stats got:
    12, 14, 16, 18, 10, 14
    how'd you get that nat 18 i'm very slightly jealous
    You also get a natural +2 to CHA, being a Half-Elf, so please keep that in mind. You can also add +1 to any two other stats of your choice.

    There are several sub-classes of half-elf according to each type of elf. I'll paste them below and you can select one.
    General: 2 skill proficiencies
    High/Wood Elf: Proficiency with longsword, shortsword, longbow, and shortbow.
    High Elf: You can have one wizard spell cantrip, using INT.
    Wood Elf: You can move 35 feet instead of 30 (except I never choose this.)
    Wood Elf: You can hide with only lightly obscured by natural phenomena.
    Dark Elf: You know Dancing Light cantrip, get Faerie Fire at level 3, and Darkness at level 5. These use Charisma to cast, and the latter two require a long rest in between (8 hours).
    Sea Elf: You can swim 30 feet.
    How much about the game do you know, or is there anything you want help with? I'm... actually quite new, I should clarify... if I do anything wrong, please tell me!

    I just realized I forgot to explain the 6 stats oops
    Strength (STR): Physical strength
    Dexterity (DEX): Stealth, acrobatics, speed, that thing
    Constitution (CON): HP
    Intelligence (INT): Academic/Studial knowledge
    Wisdom (WIS): Common sense
    Charisma (CHA): Getting people to do what you want

    @Jupjami
    Looks perfect!
    Seeing as you're new, I'll help you through the ropes with this one.
    You're going to have to pick a sub-class of Dragonborn, which basically determinds what element your breath attack (dragonborn quirk) will be, its range, and what element you have resistance to. There's also what save your opponents will have to make in order to lessen the damage.
    There are two types of breath attack: Line (5 x 30 inch^2) and Cone (15 inch)
    Black: Acid vomit, line, DEX save
    Blue: Lightning, line, DEX save
    Brass: Fire, line, DEX save
    Bronze: Lightning, line, DEX save
    Copper: Acid, line, DEX save
    Gold: Fire, cone, DEX save
    Green: Poison, cone, CON save
    Red: Fire, cone, DEX save
    Silver: Cold, cone, CON save
    White: Cold, cone, CON save

    Next thing you'll have to do is put down your stats. Assign them to STR, CON, DEX, WIS, INT, and CHA. Please note that Dragonborn will automatically add +2 to your STR and +1 to your CHA.
    Here are your numbers, without modifiers!
    15, 14, 10, 11, 15, 10

    That's a good question. I've already finished making my character sheet, so I guess I can take a screenshot of it, and post that here. (I can't do that's right now though, since I have to go to work in about half an hour, and I don't have the time to mess around with the internet. Guess who's working from 11 pm till 4 in the morning!? I wanna die.) But tomorrow, I'll post the image.

    Ayy! It's technically tomorrow, so here's the image. I've been awake for about 23 hours, and I'm surprised by the fact that I'm not very tired. Anyway, here's my character sheet. There are a few things missing (Like passive perception [No idea how to get that number], and background [Cause you said no backgrounds].), but nothing that can't be edited in later.

    Thank you so much for making this!
    @Jupjami You still have yet to choose a breath attack and assign your stats. Sorry if I'm being rude.

    All right, so I'll roll up your stats... and you get to choose your spells. I hope you like pain. :D
    Stats:
    14, 13, 14, 14, 13, 11
    Assign one of these numbers to each stat. As a wizard, you want high INT, and then DEX and CON, but you can put them as you wish.

    You get 3 Cantrips and 6 spells. Every morning when you wake up, you can choose two spells you want to have around for the day. Cantrips can be cast at any time.



    @Jupjami
    Just a quick tip - Monks want high DEX and WIS, and CON under those, so you probably want to lean towards those as well.

    All right, that's good! Sorry I forgot to say, you're also accepted!
    You still have a little bit more to go through. I'm sorry. Namely, choosing equipment and skills.
    From these skills, choose two:
    Arcana (magic), History, Insight (understanding intentions), Investigation (mysteries woot woot), Medicine, Religion

    And your equipment, which is a bunch of choices.
    Quarterstaff or Dagger
    Component Pouch or Arcane Focus
    Scholar's Pack or Explorer's Pack
    and a spellbook
    Also, your HP is 8, by the way. Wizards are very squishy.

    From here I'm just gonna run a quick poll - please quote and vote for whether or not we should have backgrounds or if I should just toss items at y'all

    Ahh sorry, I was still deciding then...

    15 goes to DEX and WIS, 14 goes to CON, 11 to INT and 10 to CHA and STR~

    and red dragons are awesome~! totally not biased with Igneel

    I kind of like the idea of each of us having a background. (For skill reasons, and the fact that I have a back story for my character but it's not really important, unless y'all are interested.)

    Backgrounds are fun, but in my opinion it's up to you, since this is your RP~

    anyway, since everyone already gave most of their stats I guess I'll add mine...

    STR: 12 (+2 from race)
    DEX: 15
    INT: 11
    CON: 14
    WIS: 15
    CHA: 11 (+1 from race)
    Skills: stealth, insight
    Equipment: explorer's pack, darts(10), unarmed strike (does this even count?)

    as I have no prior experience of actually playing DnD (I've only watched/heard of it), I'm just basing these on what I have read about monks...

    Ah, thanks! I'll put that down on the Notes.
    As for background, the way they work is that you choose an existing "background" from Dungeons and Dragons. They decide your equipment. Here's the full list:
