For Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

The Drums of War, Thunder Once Again

Four years after the Battle of Mount Hyjal, tensions between the Alliance and the Horde begin to arise once
Intent on settling the arid region of Durotar, Thrall's new Horde expanded its ranks, inviting the
undead Forsaken to join Orcs, Tauren, and Trolls.
Meanwhile, Dwarves, Gnomes and the ancient Night Elves pledged their loyalties to a reinvigorated Alliance,
guided by the human kingdom of Stormwind.

The Faction War

The world of Azeroth is being split in two, because of this you must pick a side, all of the party must be playing
races of the same faction.

Ability Score Generation

Each ability score starts at 10, representing the average, but as you make character choices, you’ll adjust these
scores by applying ability boosts, which increase a score, and ability flaws, which decrease a score. As you build
your character, remember to apply ability score adjustments when making the following decisions.
Race: Each race provides ability boosts, and sometimes an ability flaw.
Background: Your character’s background provides two ability boosts.
Class: Your character’s class provides an ability boost to the ability score most important to your class
Determine Scores: After the other steps, you apply four more ability boosts of your choice (Each must be on a
separate stat. Then, determine your ability modifiers based on those scores
Ability Boosts & Flaws: An Boost or a Flaw either increases or decreases the ability score by 2. However, if an
ability score your boosting is already 18 or higher its value only increases by 1
When your character receives an ability boost, the rules indicate whether it must be applied to a specific ability
score or to one of two specific ability scores, or whether it is a “free” ability boost that can be applied to any ability
score of your choice. However, when you gain multiple ability boosts at the same time, you must apply each one
to a different score. Dwarves, for example, receive an ability boost to their Strength score and their Constitution
score, as well as one free ability boost, which can be applied to any score other than Strength or Constitution.
