Five the barbarian ranger.
I think most DM’s have characters prepared they maybe one day want to play. I certainly do. For more than a year I have a character sitting on the shelf waiting to be played. Five.
Favorite PC you’d like to play
Five is an orc who’s parents deemed unfitting and to weak to be part of there family. Instead of giving him a name the just called him five because he was their fifth child. The shunned him from the tribe keeping him in their tent to do small and unimportant tasks like washing their clothes.
When he got to old and big and they had to provide food for their failure of a son they abandoned Five in the woods and said to never come back.
Now 20 years of being mainly by himself and surviving in the wilds he has found a civilized land where he can life. He is now looking to prove his worth to the world and maybe find some a parent figure or mentor to hone his skill as a ranger/barbarian.
My favorite class is Paladin and it should be yours too!
After talking about favorite race it was inevitable that favorite class had to be discussed. Enjoy!
Favorite Player Character Class
I find it really hard to choose a favorite class I honestly enjoy them all. Often if I need to roll up a character I just roll a d12 to decide what to play. But there is one class I really love.
Knights in shining armor, devoted to do the right thing. In my eyes this class comes the closest to being a real hero and for me Dungeons and Dragons is all about being hero’s.
They will stand against evil and against all odds they will succeed and make the world a better place, they are just freaking awesome.
If feel a lot of people think that to play a paladin you need to be Mr. Lawful Good, never do anything wrong or fun. That is just plainly wrong, there is so much room for nuance. In early editions you had to be LG but 5E has thrown that out of the window, for the better I think. Look at any superhero movie (or awesome anime like boku no hero) they all want to do the right thing but all have different reasons and motivations.
Paladins are great and we should all play them a bit more often!
