Level 0 Adventures

Heroes are not born, they are made. Before your characters were fighters, barbarians, sorcerers or warlocks, they probably had much more in common with the average person on the street. Your wizard was not born with a spellbook in their hands and they did not master the arcane overnight, there was a point before they could even really call themselves a wizard, what was that like?

You can have the whole group play as level 0 characters together, if part of their backstory is a shared origin. Or you can run individual prequel sessions for each character or pairs of characters one-on-one before the campaign proper, and learn how those elements interact in a session zero.

Level 0 characters can also be used for quick and simple one-shots. For flashback adventures to learn more about the character’s past, for side stories about the NPCs of your world, or to tell ‘what if?’ stories about other would be adventuring groups. Playing at level 0 is a great way to ease into the mechanics of D&D, and learn about your characters more as concepts and personalities than a list of mechanics. With relatively few mechanical bells and whistles, these proto-adventurers can get their first taste of the dangerous world without already being a significant cut above the rest. Starting at level 0, also gives every charact

So some things deserve a waiting period before a review. Some things don't. This is three pages long. The first page is a picture. The second page is a lot of author credit and links, plus the general idea of why "level 0" matters. The third page is advice on how to reduce stats for level 0. That's it. Ok, thanks. I can read the PHB and apply racial and background elements to a freshly rolled character. I can take away proficiencies if that seems too powerful. I don't really need a lot of "variant options" to add in more half-baked half-features if the DM feels like it.

The title should be punctuated "Level 0 Aventures: Play your backstory", because it literally doesn't do anything but tell you to do stuff at level 0.

Having "Adventures," in the title is a misnomer. There are no adventures in this short document. There are recommendations for generating a level 0 character. That's it.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
