First things first, in Dungeons and Dragons, at it’s core it’s always the same game. In the regard that, no matter who you are playing it with, it’s usually going to function similarly.
There are five main rule sets, called the additions, that came out in order. For example, in the 80s they had D&D 1, and then it was followed up with 2 and then 3 and so on.
We’re playing 3.5, and in this article we are providing pre made D&D 3.5 character sheet this isn’t the most recent edition so if you want to play a more up to date one, you have to look for a 5th edition guide.

Defining your Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Character Sheet
So at the top block, you will find details that will mostly define who you are.
You have your character name first, where you enter anything like Rob Blackblade for example.
Following this is player name, this is where you enter your real name.
Class and Level, You will mostly start level 1 unless you’re doing a sort of a one-shot campaign in which case you’ll probably start at around 5 or 6. For classes, you will have to refer to the player’s handbook on page 21, there’s around 10 of them.
ECL is going to be 1 almost always, there’s no need of an explanation for it either since it depends on your Dungeon Master DM and your race.
Race, is like humans, dwarves, orcs, elves etc. You can either pick out of the player’s handbook, there’s some in the monster manual as well.
Size is going to be small, medium or large. It’s mostly going to be small or medium, so just put a S or M there. When you read the documentation about your race, it will tell you what size you are. For example, gnomes and half-lings are small and there are a very few large character races especially at level 1.
Gender, pick either one you want your character to be.
Alignment – There are nine alignments to choose from, they are- Lawful Good, Neutral Good,
Chaotic Good, Lawful Neutral, True Neutral, Chaotic Neutral, Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil, Chaotic Evil. The Chaotic and Lawful Spectrum is about whether you follow a code and are true to your word. The Good and Evil scale is basically the morals of your Grand Master and how this world functions with those morals. Neutral is almost like a motivation, suppose if you’re lawful neutral you follow the law not bothering about whether it is good or evil.
Religion, most races have a racial god, but every race has a giant pantheon of around ten gods. You can talk to your Dungeon Master DM about this and he will fill you in with what suits you best.
Height, Weight, Looks – You can find these on a table in the players handbook at the ends of the race section which is chapter six. There is a table which tells you what is the suitable height and weight for your race. It’s not super important but just to help you visualize your your character and help your DM.
