Player characters level up or bad-ass beginner? Angela Murray inspired us to discuss the topic. Do you start out a wimp where your wizard has 1d4+Con Mod hit points to only die from a pin prick or do you have max hit points and want to be an effective bad ass at first level? There is something to both sides. The former may build character, we’re not talking rpg character but personal character within the player character part of a roleplaying game. However, being a hero means you are somewhat formidable. We talk about it!
