Quick 5e Character Generation Reference Thingy

I can't be the only one who wished, during character creation, these were all in one place for reference. So here you go, in the approximate order you need them…

All the 5e Races (p17)
Hill Dwarf
Mountain Dwarf
High Elf
Wood Elf
Drow
Lightfoot Halfling
Stout Halfling
Human
Dragonborn
Forest gnome
Rock gnome
Half-elf
Half-orc
Tiefling

All the 5e Backgrounds (p125) (it helps to pick background before class because then when you move to class and pick skills you don't pick skills you already have)
(Variants backgrounds in parenthesis)
Acolyte
Charlatan
Criminal
(Spy)
Entertainer
(Gladiator)
Folk Hero
Guild Artisan
(Guild Merchant)
Hermit
Noble
(Noble Knight)
Outlander
Sage
Sailor
(Pirate)
Soldier
Urchin

All the 5e Classes (p45)
Barbarian
Bard
Cleric
Druid
Fighter
Monk
Paladin
Ranger
Rogue
Sorcerer
Warlock
Wizard

All the 5e skills (p 174)

STRENGTH                WISDOM
Athletics                       Animal Handling
                                     Insight
DEXTERITY              Medicine
Acrobatics                    Perception
Sleight of Hand            Survival
Stealth

INTELLIGENCE       CHARISMA
Arcana                         Deception
History                         Intimidation
Investigation                 Performance
Nature                          Persuasion
Religion

Trinket table: p 159
Starting money: p 143
Armor: p 144
Weapons: p 146
Other gear: p 148
Spells: p 207
XP Table: p15


And here's a Random 5e PC Generator it doesn't roll and crunch the numbers but it does pick race, class, background, etc. The race and class has two versions--one that leaves out bards and gnomes because they suck and one that leaves them in because I am merciful.

  1. On my first try of the random character generator: Chaotic-Evil Half-Orc Witch.

    I feel so stereotyped.
    But still like a badass.

  2. Thanks for compiling this index. If I ever can afford the book I'm pasting it inside the cover.

    2. Yes, and we do share books when necessary. I'll print up a copy for them too.

  4. I also made one of these, though mine's a good bit longer, since I included more detail.

  5. Aviva rolled her first 5E character last night with this, and it helped a lot. Thanks!

  6. Wouldn't it make more sense if Barbarian was a background rather than a class?

    1. Linguistically--maybe.

      "Outlander" is the barbarian background so to double down on barbarian you choose that.

      As a 5e class the barbarian is basically about Rage and raging and damage. They saved the nature stuff for the druid and the ranger.

  7. I grabbed (stole) all this and plunked it onto Abulafia for the heck of it.
