Are there any rules for changing one’s character? I’m thinking of using a different character but I don’t want to lose my stamp progress. Do I pretend my current character died and just roll up a new character following character death rules?August 24, 2019 at 9:40 pm #1180Steve ReedModerator
What level is your character now?
Officially, yes. We have rules for starting at level 1 and gaining bonus stats from existing stamps, but its pretty steep. Unoffiially though, you’re new and within the first level or two, I’d probably be fine with just a straight change if you’re not happy with what you have, especially if you’re new to DND because you had no idea what you were getting into!August 26, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1181kirpiParticipant
Currently my character is level 2 (I’ve got 2 stamps so far). Mostly I want to change because I feel like my character concept would work better in a long-term campaign with a stable DM rather than a series of one-shot adventures. Right now I feel like I’m missing a lot of RP opportunity, and I don’t know if that will change as I reach higher levels.August 26, 2019 at 8:37 pm #1182Clay ToombsKeymaster
Hi Kirpi – I agree with Steve. When I do the “noobs” table, I always tell folks that they can transfer their 1st stamp to a new character. No big deal to go ahead and transfer your 2 stamps to a new character. We want you to play a character that you have fun playing. You are exactly right about the Tuesday games not having lots of opportunity for role-playing, so we totally get why folks might want to run a different character.
Now, if your character dies, we want to make that hurt a little, so you wouldn’t be able to transfer all your stamps. But in this case, you just want to have more fun and that’s what we want, too.
Bottom line: go ahead and make up a new character with 2 stamps. Hope to see you on September 3rd for our next game!
