Pre-Generated Character Library – D&D Next

dndnext-1Wizards of the Coast wants you to help shape the future of D&D by playtesting D&D Next. All you have to do to join in the playtesting is visit DnDNext.com, agree to the playtest terms & conditions, download the latest playtest packet, and then you’re ready to start.

Every week at D&D Encounters many Friendly Local Gaming Shops (FLGS) are running tables using the new D&D Next rules. If you’d like to join a D&D Next table all you have to do is sign an NDA, create a character, and you’re good to go.

All of these pre-gens are the property of Wizards of the Coast and the information on these characters fall under the umbrella of the D&D Next NDA.

@matthew
I’ll be adding them later this week.

6 Ryan November 4, 2014 at 4:12 pm

can you level up the pregenerated characters in the starter set for each level. at least 2 -10

7 Ameron (Derek Myers) November 4, 2014 at 7:41 pm

@Ryan
We generally try to just post the pre-gens Wizards of the Coast created. If they put out higher level 5e pre-gens we’ll certainly post them.

That being said if you’d like to create some pre-gens using the free Basic Rules for higher levels, send them to me and we’ll see about posting them. Email me to discuss.
