When creating a D&D character it's recommended the Game Master sets up a Pre-Session where players can discuss who they are playing, and how the characters know in each other. This is important for two reasons:
- This allows characters to have more depth and chemistry when interacting, as it won't feel like they just met, even if they've only heard rumors about a name
- Ensures that players don't pick too much of the same class, for example making sure there is a Cleric to heal the group during battle.
Think about the following
- What background did my character grow up in
- Does the character have any traumatic memories or regrets
- What are the character's fears
- What does the character enjoy as a hobby, might tell something about their personality
- What is their demeanor about kids and adults, do they differ and how
After thinking about the type of character you want to play, even some basic one-word notes to get an idea, you're ready to start building.
