Creating Your 4th Edition Character

Character Sheet. There's one in the back of the Player's Handbook you can photocopy or use the PDF here.

Here are the basic guidelines:

  • Use the 4E Player's Handbook
  • Ability Scores. Use Method 1 or 2
  • Alignment. It's up to you. You can be Good, Lawful Good or Unaligned. You cannot be Evil or Chaotic Evil.
  • Gods. The standard gods are fine. A few of the D&D gods map to the Phoenician gods:
  1. Baal is Pelor. Baal is the patron god of Baal-gad.
  2. Melqart maps to the Raven Queen (you can call him Raven King). Melqart is the patron god of Zor.
  3. Most of the others can be mapped to Phoenciain gods. Ask me if you want to use them.
  • Personality. Please go through the various matrices for coming up with your character background. Please make backgrounds short and concise, 1-2 paragraphs at the longest.
  • What I'll provide you. Once you have a basic background in place, the last thing you should write, I'll provide you with a basic contact in town, or if you chose something more exotic, potentially farther away.
Everything else is fine!
