Tiefling Race Builder: Level One

Tiefling Race Basics:

Tieflings are SO COOL. They’re descended from devils and they can cast magic. Many people in the D&D world are afraid of Tieflings (perhaps the horns?) but that doesn’t mean they’re bad creatures. I feel like every party should have at least one Tiefling to scare off the commoners.


This guide should make it easy-peasy for you to fill out your first character sheet for the Tiefling race! Consult your player’s handbook for more detailed information.
