Announcing the Pre-Generated Character Library

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on January 6, 2012

Today Dungeon’s Master launched a new permanent resource page on our blog, the Pre-Generated Character Library. We’ve collected all the pre-gens that Wizards put together for the first four seasons of D&D Encounters along with the home made PCs created by the blogging community. Now all the pre-gens are available in one easy to find place and each season’s pre-gens are available for download in PDF format.

Although 6 pre-generated characters are provided with every D&D Encounters kit, Wizards has confirmed that they have no intention of providing new pre-gens moving forward. They want players to create their own characters and not just keep reusing the pre-gens season after season. However, there are always new players who will need a pre-generated character so it’s always a good idea to have a few on hand. Our library gives you more than the stock six that we’ve come to love and hate.

The characters in the Pre-Generated Character Library can be used for D&D Encounters or at any home game. They provide DMs with complete, ready-made stock characters that they can easily use as PCs or NPCs in low level adventures.

The Pre-Generated Character Library will be permanently accessible in our left navigation below the Staff Picks. We’ll continue to add new pre-generated characters to the library as we acquire or create them.

Great resource, much appreciated.

Had to hunt for those posts once, this makes things much easier.

Its also quite useful for one-shots, as well.

This is awesome! Ironically my DM for Crystal Cave is allowing us to use any of the PreGens we want for this adventure. Some are pretty cool. Thanks for providing all of them!

Thanks for providing these.

Belgos the Drow Hunter certainly created my love of drow. I’m certainly looking forward to Dungeon’s Master’s article on Drow coming up soon!

Excellent resource! Perfect for when someone wants to try out the game and you don’t want to spend a few hours on the character builder bewildering them with choices.

Do you think *dungeons and donuts* would let you archive his *Lost Crown of Neverwinter* pregens:

or his custom *eberron*-ish pregens:

This is sad news one of the parts of the adventures were the half page pregen characters. They may not have been very good, but they were awesome to look at. Thanks for sharing. I will keep these in mind if I run Encounters again
