Session 0 Scheduled, Guidelines for Character Creation

Session 0 Scheduled


I’ve scheduled Session 0 for Monday, July 31st at 7:00 pm.  The game will be played at Caffeinated Gaming, in Zieglerville, PA.  After posting a game teaser and asking if any would-be players were interested in forming a game, I’ve had what I’d call an enthusiastic response.  It looks like there could be anywhere from 3-8 possible players, with the likelihood that if too many players show up for S0, another DM will form a second table running another game.  I’m going to have to go with a first contacted/first in rule for letting players into the game.  Ideally, I’d like to have no more than 5 players.

I hope to do character generation in full during S0, along with some discussion of house rules, and both DM and player wants for the game – with time left over to run a little quick “prologue” adventure if possible.

Character Creation Guidelines

While I want to do the actual character creation as a group, I encourage would-be players to be thinking about their possible characters in advance.  Have an idea of race, class, and likely build options before we sit down on the 31st – it’ll help speed up the process.  For reference, please see my Quelas Reference Document (QRD) for inspiration and guidance.


I know that various 5e books open up race options significantly (I’m looking at you Volo’s Guide to Monsters), but I’d like to keep the race list a little tighter.  If it’s in the QRD, I’ll allow it.  If it’s not, we can talk about it, but don’t get your hopes up too high.


Classes haven’t been expounded on as much as races have thus far in 5e’s lifecycle, but again, if it’s in the QRD, it’s good.  If not, let’s talk.

Builds, Subclasses, Etc.

This is where I get significantly more liberal in what I’ll allow. If it’s in published Wizard’s D&D material, I’ll allow it.  This includes Unearthed Arcana optional material. If I can find it, or you can point me to it, it’s allowable.

Ability Score Generation

Unless we get unanimous agreement to rolling for stats on the 31st, count on using Point Buy or score arrays for ability scores.

If you have any questions or issues, you can reach me via Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ (links at the top-right of the site) or by using the contact form, as well as by reaching out to me on Caffeinated Gaming’s LFG Facebook page.
