The First Thursday of every month, I like to try my hand at creating a cool character or another, This month, we have a Spell-based Druid that really turns up the heat! I wanted to make, essentially a nature-wizard, something a bit more offensive and less toolboxy than the normal druid.
In this series, I’m talking character idea’s, some that I came up with ages ago, and some that I’ve found through poking at the D&D 5e books looking for cool combos and abilities. I lay them out in fair detail in the hopes that someone else can take up the reigns of these characters. While I would love to, it is highly unlikely that I can play all of them, or even many, before my days expire.
Today, we have Eias the Penniless, a Human Fighter Monk with but a stick to his name but who is also as deadly as any other warrior wandering the kingdoms.

Today, we have Aelowynd, The Sin Hunter, an Elven War Priest/Ranger who hunts those who have wronged her god and her people.
There are a lot of characters that my brain comes up with, and often it is a single line of inspiration that leads to a character that is fun, sometimes strange, and a little bit off the beaten path. Today, that character comes from another guide to Sorcerers, here. That line is: “Probably something you’d take with Subtle Spell to be a master infiltrator/doppleganger.” Let us see what happened!
This second character was actually one of the first that occurred to me as I was starting to build backup characters for Clovis. Its a pretty simple concept, and doesn’t take as many twists and turns as Brox did, so this one might be a bit simpler. Lets see where he goes, then. Lets get to Varuun, the Zealot.
I enjoy creating characters, perhaps more than I should, for D&D, 5e in particular, but I also like creating characters in pretty much every system known. 3.5/Pathfinder are especially crunchy characters to make, but they tend to lack a lot of the soul of the characters in 5e, I find. I dunno what it is – nothing wrong with a d20 system, but its a very different character creation process.
Well. Lets go then! Today, my first of – Hopefullly – many Character concepts that I want to play in D&D – Brox, the Dragonborn Javelineer
