What is a 32 point build in D&D?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I just found out I am going to be in a 3.5 D&D party again. I was told we have to use 32pt. Builds for the character. The thing is I have no idea what it means and I do not see anyhting about it in the PH. Could some one explain so I can create my character.

Sure instead of rolling dice you use points to by your statistics...

 

Str, int, Wis, Dex, con Chr

 

All abilities start at 8

 

1 point per point up to 14

2 points for 15-16

3 points per point at 17-18

 

 

So

8 -- 0

9 -- 1

10 -- 2

11 -- 3

12 -- 4

13 -- 5

14 -- 6

15 -- 8

16 --10

17 -- 13

18 -- 16

 

You can't buy above 18

Remember to buy first and then apply your racial bonus'

 

A human character example

 

Str 14 6

Con 14 6

Dex 14 6

Int 10 2

Wis 10 2

Chr 16 10

 

Total 32 pts

I've found 32 points a good, solid middle for chargen. You can build a character with pretty much decent stats all around. More than that you start to drift into the realm of munchkinism, less than that you really can't build a good character (JMO).

32 points could be classified as high fantasy.....

 

The game is designed around 25 points being slightly above average.

28 points allows for a slightly more gritty game...

 

 

But I find it really depends upon your preference.. High fantasy or low...
