Reverse Dungeoneering #7 Expanding Roleplaying


Improving your D&D experience. For Dungeons and Dragons Players and DMs.

This is the second article in a series of D&D roleplaying articles. Check out part one here:

Many moons ago, a group I was DMing for had asked for assistance on creating a more developed character for roleplaying. To help them out, I created this character template sheet. Essentially, it asks the types of questions you should be asking yourself when making your own D&D character. It's designed to simply direct you in constructing a fleshed out character. You don't have to fill it out to completion but being able to answer these questions about your character can help spark ideas you may not have thought about or guide you through things you may have overlooked.
