Premade Characters

Character creation can be a lot of fun, but it can also be time consuming. Premade characters are an option that allows players to jump into playing the game more quickly. These characters can be used as they are, or they can serve as a starting point for building a new character. Premade characters are also here to serve as an accessibility option for those people who find character creation to be a bit overwhelming. In addition, game managers might find these characters to be a useful tool for creating a diverse cast of nonplayer characters.



List of Premade Characters

Because each character class is a thematic grouping of abilities, premade characters are organized by character class. There are three premade character options for each class. Effort was made to ensure that each class has three distinct premade characters with unique personalities, identities, and ability sets.
