The world is not yet ready for you, but I know it's fun to think ahead about the characters you may create for future games.
A "by the book" standard D&D 5e character will not work for this campaign. There are things you will need to know to create your character. In fact, your character is from a very restrictive place that may define them very much, indeed. As it turns out, I have already put togehter the information you will need to begin the process of character creation.
