Time To Pick A Class

Your done, your survived learning the basics of how to play D&D. It is between you and the DM weather this character returns to the farm they came from OR carries on. I encourage at this stage when you pick you real first class for the DM to allow you to keep what you have earned above as a bonus. Noting you already have all your race features for level 1.
