The mechanical rules for character building are as follows
No Dragonborn Gnomes, Minotaurs, Aarakocra, Aasimar, Eladrin, Goliaths, or Genasi.
Stats are rolled 5d6 drop 2
Any alternate class options published officially are fair game.
I would recommend (not mandate) that between the four or so players that you collectively have a full set of skills. All will be needed.
Please post your filled out Character Questionnaire and your character blurb in your PC’s character page.
