A player made a 4th-level character for our new game and didn’t tell me. Now what?

I started to GM 5th edition D&D a few weeks back; I am running them through the Lost Mine of Phandelver adventure.

After a few games I’ve almost already killed two new level 1 characters but I was intrigued about how the 3rd player’s character didn’t seem to be fazed. I mentioned in passing, “Wow, you should be pretty close to dying!” (having been hit by three goblin-arrows), to which he replied: “No, I am at 44 health.”

Then I asked his level and he replied, “Four.”

He never mentioned at all that his character was level 4. He helped everyone else (including me before I decided to GM) make a new level 1 character. The module is for level 1 characters. He wanted to play this particular module because the specific character he is playing has never completed the module.

I am at a loss for what I should do. I considered a few options:

  • Find a way to activate a spell that curses him to level 1.
    • Since I am so new to GMing and 5e, I am unsure if that is a viable option.
  • I also considered just making everyone else level 4 and having him help level everyone else up for the session.
  • Raise the monsters levels for the rest of the adventure.

    • But, I’m sure the level 1 characters would die from the extra damage and I would have to pore over the DMG, which I haven’t bought yet. (I’m using the DMing info in the Starter Set.)
  • What if anything can I do here?

  • Should I raise the monsters’ levels to keep it fair and challenging, or just overlook the ‘oversight’?
  • Should I require the person to stop what we are doing (in the middle of the goblin cave), and force him to make a new level 1 character and reintroduce his character to the group?

Any help would be appreciated.

I am also going to ask other GMs I have played with in the past for any ideas. I will look over any answers I get here after the game session. Thank you all for your help.

(For reference, I started playing D&D in 2nd edition, up to and including Pathfinder, 3e, 3.5, and various other games. I did not play D&D 4e.)

To answer a few questions that your various responses left for me:

  • It was his idea to start running a game.
  • There are 4 of us [originally 6 but one had to drop out and the 5th had been stuck in a ‘working on Friday’ loop, leaving 4 [3 plus GM]. He [lets call him 4B] gave the idea of everyone making 1st level characters [where my assumption that he was level one to begin with]
  • I do not believe 4B was trying to pull a fast one on me, or trying to cheat. I have not been able to get a copy of his character sheet to look over anything. We used just the core book, no other books [PHB]. We used backgrounds [there may be some bonuses coming from there].

As for solution options, I have strongly considered either leaving things as they lie and have the goblins target the big buff fighter type that cant see in the dark, or asking him to revert his character to level one. Since 4B is hosting D&D at his house, I worry about how he may react to this. I have considered hosting the games at my house. I like the idea that he gets a visit from a Godly source, but i am unable to get an answer from him on his characters beliefs.

I have already taken steps to possibly avoid any version of him using player knowledge through his character. [Mind you, I am not saying that he is doing this in any way; he has told me he would not do that and has so far shown it through his character’s actions that he ‘doesn’t know’ anything.]

One step was to change some of the details of the rooms:

How can I tell if I have the best graphics drivers installed

I am a Ubuntu/Linux noob and trying to get back into using it as my main OS. I have installed version 18.04 on a 10 year old machine to give it ago. It installed fine and during installation I allowed it to connect to the Internet to get latest updates as well as using third party proprietary software. Everything went fine and I’m up and running but I want to be sure that the drivers it automatically installed for my graphics card are the correct official ones that doesn’t need any installing from me. How can I check this? The graphics card is a Radeon HD 4870 X2

32-bit and 64-bit Android: how to tell before buying a phone

I have been looking into 32-bit or 64-bit Android versions for phones. It seems to me that the information on the number of bits of the installed Android version is always missing from phones’ specs, unlike what happens for the CPU. Googling around, the ways I have found to understand whether a phone is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit OS all include actually doing something with the phone, like looking up the kernel version or downloading some app, like AIDA64.

How do I know if a phone I want to buy will come with a 32-bit or a 64-bit Android before I buy it? It would be interesting to find a layman-friendly criterion or resource that allows me to know this in advance, especially to be able to look into the cheapest phones running a 64-bit Android.

How to tell which app added a photo to my library

Today I noticed some photos in my iCloud Photo Library which I did not put there. I’m not talking about any shared album, this is my library. This is alarming since I have never shared my iCloud account or password with anyone and I use 2FA for security. My best guess is that these photos were added by a bug in an iOS application which I have previously granted access to the photos library. So how can I tell which application created a particular photo?

Can my location services tell me where my iPhone was this morning?

Sounds like a weird question, but since my boss requires timesheets, it’d help for me to know exactly what time I got to the office in the morning since I’m woefully bad at keeping track of this on my own.

I can’t seem to find any info on google (most results involve “good morning” and otherwise led me this community). Was hoping someone here could shed some light for me.

[ Maintenance & Repairs ] Open Question : How can you tell if a used car should have originally come with a key fob?

There are no locks on the outside of my used 2003 Ford Escape other than the one on the driver’s side door. Should I just be able to buy and program a new key fob? It’s kind of a pain especially when you have groceries, etc. that need to go in the back.
