What does 5d4 x 10 gp mean?
I’m creating an Eladrin Ranger/Bard and I’m trying to figure out my starting wealth.
It means that if you are creating a Ranger or Bard, if you choose not to take the standard equipment packages from your Class and Background, you instead roll five four-sided dice (5d4), add them together, then multiply the result by 10 to determine the number of gold pieces you start with, which you then use to buy your equipment during character creation.
Note that this is not allowed in Adventurer's League play, to ensure fairness between all players; instead, you must choose your standard equipment packages from your Class and Background.
Roll five 4-sided dice. Then multiply the result by 10. That is your starting wealth.
