How to create your Player Character

Use these steps to create a character for your RPG campaign. If you want to create a character article (i.e. a character that’s part of your own worldbuilding), check out how to create an article.


  1. From anywhere on the site, open the world switcher on the top middle of your screen.
  2. Select the tab Characters. If you don’t see it, make sure to enable RPG features in your account.
  3. You will see all your created characters, click the New Character+ at the end of the list of your characters.
  4. On the next screen, type the name of your character. You can also add a description and a profile picture. If you want to play in a campaign, make sure to select the RPG system in the dropdown menu.

After you save changes, you’ll be redirected to your new character profile! If you want to add a character sheet now, follow these steps:

  1. Click the “Edit” button in the character profile.
  2. Scroll down until the “Create/Choose character sheet” button. Click it.
  3. On the next screen, select a system to create a character sheet for your PC. If you already created a character sheet separately, use the other drop-down to select it. Then, click the button.
  4. Fill in the character sheet and save your changes using the button on the top right when you’re done.

And that’s it! Your character now has a sheet and you’ll be able to edit it again from their profile.
