First (and Last)


Back in August (5th to be exact), I managed to snag the first public copy of the Player’s Handbookin the whole world. It was an awesome feeling to call “FIRST”. Of course, that meant for the next week I was answering questions on EN World as people wanted info on the new edition of D&D. I hope that was not my 15 minutes of fame, but I will accept that it was great fun reading the book before anyone else could.

Yesterday, my friend held a session to start a new campaign. We rolled ability scores (18, 18, 17, 17, 15, 6 or 17, 17, 15, 14, 14, 12) and everyone else delved into their concepts and fleshed out their character sheets. Today, I still have not decided what to play. I know the PHB pretty well, but now I am last to build a character.

Funny how that happens.

Only characters concept I can think of are: Salvo, dual-hand-crossbow-wielding swashbuckler-type; Naught, a naive and literal warforged or half-orc that has the qualities of Baymax from Big Hero 6; or a low Charisma sociopath akin to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock.

What do you think I should play? 

But… what do I know…?
