It’s the beginning of a campaign and you have players coming to your table.
Do you use pre-gens or not?
Here are a couple quick & dirty tips to keep in mind:
Brand new players who just want to see what the fuss is about? Yes, pre-gens can be a great idea.
Campaign where backgrounds & motivations matter a lot? Maybe at least pre-generated backgrounds to ensure the players feel connected to the world.
Players really invested in the game, or who are super enthusiastic about learning? Let them roll up their own.
