Here we are again with another update; you may have noticed that this update includes the material (Vital Statistics) from the last update. That’s because I want my readers to have one file that will help them generate the core of their character quickly and easily. Thus, I combined the Vital Statistics file with the Character Creation file that I’ve been working on. I’ve actually been using this method in various 3.x campaigns that I have been running, and I find that it works quite well; I’m very happy with it. I hope that you will like it as well.
You might be asking yourself, why would you (i.e., me, the blog owner) want to waste a whole blog post, on something as simple as vital statistics? After all, you just state what you want your height and weight to be, and you move on. Simple, right? Well, I started thinking about all the times that I had to correct players in my campaign, when they would say, “I want to play an Elf who is 6’5″ and very intimidating, just like Legolas!” and then I would have to reply, “That’s a Tolkien Elf; D&D Elves are different. They aren’t that tall.”
