First of all, Hello.

I am very very very very new to D&D.

I want to create a character from a monster race. I have read the books but I can't understand them. I will use Drow elf as an example

the questions are:

1)what is the level adjustment and how do I use it?

2)what are those?

enter image description here

3)how to add the proper level adjustment to a race that I have created?

Well I hope it doesn't sound complicated. Thanks for your time

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you clean up this question to be a single question? It's very hard to tell what specific problem you're having here. Start by articulating your specific intention and what work you've completed so far. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 1, 2015 at 4:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ When you say "race you have created" do you mean "apply the drow level adjustment to a character?" \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 1, 2015 at 5:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @BrianBallsun-Stanton Pretty sure, being new to D&D, the latter is meant but the language isn't there yet. This nonetheless appears answerable in its current form. (Although I dread explaining D&D 3.5's mad concoction of character levels, Hit Dice, LA, and ECL to a newcomer.) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 1, 2015 at 7:08

    \$\begingroup\$ VTCing until which sub-question this is about is sorted out. Otherwise, answers to one or some of these questions might be wasted once it's fixed. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 1, 2015 at 20:40

    \$\begingroup\$ @Ruut this has already been explained in the questions I linked in a previous comment (where I also explain which are the multiple closing reasons). I'd edit the question to have only question number 2 here but I fear the querent could lose track of where to find the replies to his ither questions. \$\endgroup\$
