Character Creation

Choose Race

Characters can be dwarf (hill), elf (desert, high), halfling (desert), or human.

Desert Elf
Ability Score Adjustment: Your Constitution score increases by 1.
Heat Endurance: Members of desert races gain a advantage on saves made to resist the effects of hot weather.
Extra Language: You can speak, read, and write one extra language of your choice.

Desert Halfling
Ability Score Adjustment: Your Charisma score increases by 1.
Heat Endurance: Members of desert races gain a advantage on saves made to resist the effects of hot weather.
Naturally Stealthy: You can attempt to hide even when you are obscured only by a creature that is one size larger than you.

Exotic Races
Characters can also be dwarf (mountain), half-elf, tiefling, and warforged, although these races are particularly scarce in surface world civilization. Selecting an exotic race is considered ‘hard mode’ in the Wasteland campaign as it may lead to you or your party being persecuted, enslaved, killed on sight, or face other difficult challenges.

Choose Class

Available classes are barbarian, cleric, druid, fighter, monk, paladin, ranger, rogue, and wizard.

Bards do not exist in in the Wasteland campaign.

Wizard can be used as analogue to Psion until Psionic rules become available.

Wasteland is a low magic campaign. Spells and supernatural activities are not commonplace and draw significant attention from mundane folk.

Determine and Assign Ability Scores

Players use the Customizing Ability Scores variant presented in the Basic Rules, with 20 points available to spend on ability scores. Wasteland is considered somewhere between a challenging and low-powered campaign.

Choose a Background

All Backgrounds from Player’s Handbook, Basic Rules, and Latest Playtest are available for use. Personality trait, ideal, bond, and flaw must be selected from the provided tables, or created by the player.

Level Up and Fill in Numbers

We’ll be starting at 4th-level.

Select and Purchase Equipment

You may select any equipment from your class and background selections. You also begin play with assorted gems worth 800gp, which you can use to purchase non-magical equipment from any allowed sources.

Describe your Character

Name, hair, eyes, skin color, height, weight, age, and alignment.
