How to Play D&D 5E: Character Creation

How to Play D&D 5E: Character Creation

Ever taken a look at Dungeons and Dragons and thought: “That looks like a ton of fun but super confusing.”? Well you are not alone! I, Darth Mexican, also went through the same thing in 2008 when I wanted to get into Dungeons and Dragons but had absolutely no idea how to break into it! The rules were confusing, the idea of improving wrecked me, and then explaining how to play to new players was a nightmare.

I ended up not only learning how to play Dungeons and Dragons but also how to Dungeon Master and have full length campaigns that even spanned up to five groups! I don’t ever recommend having multiple groups, let alone more than two unless you have an intense amount of time on your hands! I want to help other geeks learn how to play without having to bang your head against the wall trying to understand how everything works.

So this is my very first video on character creation! Unfortunately it is almost an hour long but I try my best to explain what you are doing and why. I am going to roll out with various other videos from combat to role playing so I hope you enjoy!
