Playing Younger Characters – D&D 5e

This week on the Campaign Trail I’m looking at player characters (PCs) that are younger than what is assumed by the player’s handbook. There are many reasons players ask to play a child character, such as my kids who want to play PCs that match their age in real life.  There are great examples of younger characters out there that might inspire a player such as Alice In Wonderland, Peter Pan, Harry Potter, Arya Stark, Arthur “Wart” Pendragon or Laurana Kanan (a young 75 year old elf). This article provides you and your players with some ideas for taking on this character building and roleplaying challenge.
