Bonus: Tomb of Horrors Character Sheets - Sam, Ryan and Sarah

In preparation for our 'Tomb of Horrors', I asked Sam, Ryan and Sarah to prepare level 12 characters, using any of the Wizards of the Coast 5th edition published materials. Specifically, I asked them to make characters which were 'D&D versions of themselves'. The reason for this is because this particular dungeon isn’t your usual hack/slash and run adventure. I didn’t want any of players to get stuck in debating about what they wanted to do vs what their character thought they to do.

In addition to the starter equipment they had, I also allowed each player the following:

  • 400gp to spend on additional supplies (if they wanted any)

  • 2 common healing potions

  • 1 greater healing potions

  • 3 magic items (2 uncommon and rare) which they could pick from the any of the official Wizards of the Coast 5th edition published materials.

Check out their character sheets in full below. Please note, these character sheets were for our own personal use during the one-shot and are only displayed here to show the characters stats in full for those interested.
