Yet another character generator?

Well yes!

Colin (Evan and Colin Games) this one is for you! =)

This character generator is standard old school D&D Basic/Expert except for the ascending armor class (AAC). Some would say that this feature could have been build into the existing one – and they would be totally right, but time is money and this was way faster =)

Don’t know what B/X or Basic Dungeons & Dragons is?

Basic Dungeons & Dragons (B/X) refers to an early edition of the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) roleplaying game, which was first released in 1981 by TSR, Inc. Basic D&D was designed as an introductory version of the game, intended to be accessible to new players and gamemasters while still offering a robust and engaging gameplay experience.

The “B/X” designation specifically refers to the Basic/Expert set, which was a revised edition of the original Basic D&D rules. This edition of the game was split into two rulebooks: the Basic Set and the Expert Set. The Basic Set provided the core rules for character creation, combat, and exploration, while the Expert Set expanded upon these rules with additional options for character advancement, magic, and world-building.

Basic D&D (B/X) was known for its simplicity and accessibility, making it a popular choice for beginners and casual players. The rules emphasized streamlined mechanics and fast-paced gameplay, with a focus on exploration, dungeon-crawling, and storytelling.

Character creation in Basic D&D (B/X) was relatively straightforward, with players choosing from a selection of classic fantasy races (such as humans, elves, dwarves, and halflings) and classes (such as fighters, magic-users, clerics, and thieves). Characters advanced through levels by accumulating experience points, gaining new abilities and spells as they progressed.

The B/X edition of Basic D&D was followed by several other iterations of the game, including the Rules Cyclopedia, which compiled and revised the rules from the Basic, Expert, Companion, and Master sets into a single volume. While subsequent editions of D&D introduced more complex rules and mechanics, Basic D&D (B/X) remains beloved by many players for its simplicity, nostalgia, and timeless appeal.
