Goodmorning,

The two of you really this new player- thread the most engaging one! Cool to read you are adventuring together this way. Jealous, lol, all my kids have abandoned the NPSG I DM-ed them #cry. Have fun and feel free to ask questions if you have them and surprised to NOT have read Admin Dirk's famous words: a family that D&D's together stays together. (or something, wasn't really paying attention ;-)

I hope I can get the hang of character creation. The stats and spells are giving me some serious headaches. I just don't know enough about the different methods of coming up with character stats.
I think I got the hang of the dice rolling mechanic more or less, but I hope I can explain it all to my son in a way that makes sense... once I figure it all out myself that is.

Thanks for the welcoming messages again folks. Really lovely. I already know I'll be spending a fair amount of time here.
I've been drifting around for a long time, but this is the kind of environment I like.

You’ll get the hang of it quickly. The New Players Solo Game is designed specifically for this!

Well, it takes a lot of reading up. Most of the things you need to know are in those 4 ebooks I sent you, but getting the hang of the whole mechanics thing is not something you pick up instantaneously.
Stick with it though, you'll have a great character soon.

ninja, if you find it too complex to roll your first character, consider this:
  1. There are many, many classes, but you just need to know one to begin. Choose your favorite based on your preference and focus on that.
  2. There are a lot of pregens (pre-generated characters) on the web, in published modules etc. I'm not saying to use one of those, but just reading a few of them will give you a pretty good idea of the standard builds.
  3. If you want to muck around with the many options offered by the system, there's D&D Beyond which can give you a huge help, since it streamlines the various phases and presents you all the (thousands of) legal options as simple menus. In practice, it walks you through the process. It costs a bit lot if you want all the bells, but I believe the free version is already more than enough to get started. Personally, it had such an impact on me to change my perception of 5e itself -- I didn't really like the system, but Beyond it's such an helper than made me appreciate its strength (ie, the huge amount of options it offers to any player -- which is also the reason why it's so overwhelming at first!)
The above (esp. point 3) assumes that we're talking about 5e. If we're not, the first 2 points still stand. In fact, I can add a 4th point:
4. There's not just 5e. 13th Age, for example, is in many aspects much more streamlined. Check out the SRD if you want to get a quick overview!
