Official Response to Character Creation--Can We Use 4d6 Method

Thank you very much for your patience while this was escalated to my attention. To answer your question, the D&D Adventurer's League has specific character generation rules that ensure fairness and equality in character generation. The system allows you to generate your character’s ability scores using only the following methods:

• Standard set (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8)
• Customizing ability scores variant (Player’s Handbook chapter 1)

Notice that the "Standard set" is an array of numbers that you can get with the "Customizing ability scores variant", so they are indeed balanced with one another.

To be clear, it is not allowed to roll random ability scores in the D&D Adventurer's League.

Please let us know if you ever have any further questions or concerns. We'll be happy to help as best we can.
