Tyranny of Dragons
Character creation will follow standard Player’s Handbook rules with one exception: you may choose to use the Bonds from the appendix in Hoard of the Dragon Queen rather than those specified for your Background if you wish. For now, no third-party or online supplements will be permitted for us during character creation (i.e. use only the Player’s Handbook).
Thematically, drow and dragonborn are not the most appropriate characters for this campaign, so I encourage you to avoid those races.
Regardless of your background, think about ways your characters are tied to one another and to Greenest.
