Not to hijack, but I was wondering how character creation is handled? Can I sign up for a level 1-5 event and roll my character there, or do I need to create a character beforehand?
Not 100% sure it will be available again this year, but there is usually a herolab station set up for making and printing characters, staffed with people who can help make it happen very quickly. If you can get there early or between slots and already have an idea what you want to make you can probably get it done.
Be careful to only chose options for books you own and have with you, the herolab stations have every book unlocked. Just because herolab has it available that doesn't make it legal for you without the books/pdfs to back it up.
And remember you can always play a pregen to try out new classes and apply the credit to your own level 1 character later. Even in between slots, during gencon is not the time to figure out how occultists or vigilantes work (love `em but they're complicated)
