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.

Wizards has provided six pre-generated characters with the July 7, 2013 playtest packets. These six characters are each available at levels 1, 3, and 4. For your convenience we’ve provided links to the PDFs below.

Wizards provided nine new pre-generated characters with the August 2, 2013 playtest packets. These nine characters are each available at levels 1 and 2. For your convenience we’ve provided links to the PDFs below.

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.
