Beginning "Dungeons and Dragons" players should be aware of their characters' weaknesses and know how to minimize them, according to Dungeon's Master. The game's character creation system means that some character traits are inevitably lower than others, but new players can take steps to work around this issue.

Characters with low strength can be difficult for novice players, as they often struggle with combat. A low-strength character should never be on the front lines of battle. Consider using ranged attacks, such as archery or magic, that allow the character to stay out of harm's way. Similarly, characters with low constitution should pick skills that allow them to stay out of combat and also wear solid armor to protect themselves.
