I have a question I want to ask and would like to run it by the community before I actually ask it so I can obtain feedback.
Here is my question:
Should I allow a Player to use a premade character?
In my 5th edition campaign based in the Eberron world we’ve recently obtained a new player. The player in question would like to play a premade rogue character. (I have no clue where he got the character from)
Character name: Bjorn Lightfoot
(STR: 15) (DEX: 17) (CON:16) (INT: 14) (WIS: 14) (CHA: 16)
Everyone in the campaign is playing a character they made themselves and fleshed out the backstory to. The new player just has to level up their character to level 4. I want to deny the character he is proposing because it seems like a pretty overpowered ability score setup despite the fact that most premade characters that are official are quite balanced. The highest score among any of the other players is a 15 which is only slightly higher than his lowest score. When I asked the 3 veteran players it was very undecided with one agreeing with me and one against me while the other was not really supplying their opinion.
I really don’t want to be jumping to conclusions so should I allow this person to use his character regardless of the unfair advantage I believe it gives him?
Is there anything I should add or change to make this question actually answerable?
