TT Turns Two: Free PDF on Group Character Creation

Today’s is TT’s second birthday — the first post went up on July 8th, 2005 (Every Campaign is an Experiment [1]), but I didn’t start publicizing the site until July 11th, with Running a Campaign Website [2]. Capped off by Monday’s ENnie nomination for Best Fan Site [3], it’s been a great year.

Last year, I celebrated TT’s first birthday by giving away a free PDF, How to Take Simple (Yet Badass) GM Notes [4], and I figured I’d go ahead and make that a tradition.

This year’s free PDF is now available for download: More is Better: Group Character Creation [5]. (Eight other free GMing PDFs are available in our downloads [6] section.)

Over the years I’ve found that creating characters as a group is by far the best way to lay a solid foundation for a fun campaign. I thought it would be helpful to lay out a versatile, straightforward step-by-step system for creating a great party — hopefully this PDF will be useful to new and veteran GMs alike.

Many thanks for making TT’s second year even more of a blast than the first — you rock!

I may be mistaken but I think it was already posted before.

Congrats on 2 years Martin! Group character creation is one of the best ways to go now that I’ve tried it. I’m glad to see you covering it in-depth.

Happy birthday!

Your site is exactly one year older than my son 😀

I’m so glad I found this place. As a beginning GM, the info here has been a great inspiration.

Happy birthday TT!

Why when I was just a boy there was no such thing as a friendly web site dedicated to making life easier for the GM. There was just the Dungeon Master’s Guide prototype version which had nothing but Gygax’s phone number in it and that was disconnected. So you would call Gary and there would be no answer, and you would cry and say “Boo hoo! No one wants to help me GM!” But that’s the way it was and we liked it!!!

Apologies to TT’s readers and Dana Carvey. 🙂

Happy belated birthday Treasure Tables… and solid PDF Martin. I know the topic has come up many times in the forums and on the wiki, but this is a solid treatment that I’d be happy to hand to my fellow players… as a “here’s something we should try”.

Thank you for the Happy Birthdays, and I’m glad the PDF has been well-received so far. It’s not revolutionary or anything like that, but it was fun to write and it’s an approach that works well.
