This adventure goes on for years, perks of roleplaying per post, so I want to encourage you to create what you want to play :-)
SO any class, race, feature, background is available while it is official, right?

Anything, I like to play support roles as mush a front line one, SO it is more than I like but to sum to the team in my case too!:P

I like to play mixed classes that have support or skill monkey features so other can do what they enjoy the most. I like too the spellcaster classes but leaned to support or scout abilities!;O

Maybe I can Play that HUman Variant Bard(lore) with magic initiate that I want. I think It will fit in this adventure quite well!:P

Mostly yes and a bit of no . I would prefer to own the books myself so shoot me a PM if you go for the newer books features/races and stuff. I am kinda flexible but not accepting homebrew, playtest or DnD-wiki material

I decided to play an artificer, but I want to play a character that lost his right arm in his childhood and how he struggle to become a former adventurer as his predecessor. I was reading about how at level 2 they can choose infusions and that there is one of magic item that can be a common magic item, in this case, I am interested in the prosthetic limb. So was wondering If he can choose that as an infusion magic item instead?

I have a couple of question too about the difficulty of casting magic with only one hand thought I read that artificer does not cast magic in a normal way. Does he can use his tools and cast for example fire bolt?, what about if I choose the spell from magic initiate feat (I choose the human variant) can he cast it like a artificer? I want to get in what kind Of limitation a spellcaster would have if he only have one hand

Intriguing questions and I have to confess I am not having my artificer knowledge updated right now. At this point, without doing any research I do not see a problem with a prosthetic arm being infused with magic, nor with casting without the use of (both) arms. If I remember correctly the Infusion comes at 2nd level?

- going to allow a firebolt to be cast because it also has a somatic element of casting
- Magic initiate spell cast as a artificer feature, may I boomerang this question to you? Who would/could this be a problem?

My knowledge is a bit on this level (three years ago)

Well, speaking about how artificer cast magic, they don't do like a normal spellcaster does. They found a scientific way to do magic, so they might not need that kind of extreme somatic movement, because they use artifact to emulate the intricate part of the spells. For example, An artificer might use a thief tools that transform in some kind of a device like a futuristic gun to thrown a fire bolt, or the spare dying cantrip can be a device you attach in the body of the incapacitated person and it does all kind the first aid like a electroshock, and so on. That is why I think that getting magic initiate force you learn spells and use it on the same way the class you learned. But I would like my character to adapt it himself using his class skills. Like I was thinking a technology way to summon a familiar and I was getting fun!XDD

I want to take find familiar to help in scout abilities, maybe firebolt and another utility spell. and from Artificer cantrip I would like to get maybe another useful cantrips like guidance, spare the dying or mending.

P.D. I think I got it, maybe my character designed a device to summon other world being and the device like a pokeball or a neckless to getting out and in of the real world!XDDD

Maybe the pokeball stuff sound so awesome. LIke my charaacter says, go Ferilus nd throw the device!!!!XDDD

P.D. 2: About the infusions, yes! Artificers got it at lvl 2 so that give me a good chance to develop my character, playing with one limb and putting his great effort to overcome that disability, struggling until it will become in a magic tool called prosthetic limb!:P

I am new to this site and RPG in general but I have always wanted to try it out and this PbP format seems ideal for me. I have read the Starter Set Rules and Basic Rules 5e and would like to start a character at level 1 and watch them grow. Because of my lack of experience I would probably create a standard fighter character. Is this too mundane for your setting or is my inexperience not suitable?

Second attempt at a picture



Frequency of posting is no problem I can post at least every other day throughout the year apart from a couple of holidays. I was hoping for a long campaign to develop both my character and my knowledge of the system.

Do I dare try to join a group again? I did have a lot of fun last time. Maybe it was just the character I was playing that was giving me bad luck haha.

Kaine Strongblade is up for a new game if you need a spot filler somewhere.

Name: Hektor
Class: Barbarian
Race: Simic Hybrid
Appearance: Hektor appears to be a young human man, but he is abnormally tall, has mottled skin, and has an additional pair of arms.
Background: Athlete
 

Hook: Shush
 

* What kind of a player are you? Do you think you can commit to posting twice a week for about a year? Or even more if we continue this AP into 'the Rise of Tiamat'? With my night shift job, I have a lot of free time, so posting twice a week would be easy.
* Who can you recommend to me to learn DM skills from? Who do you admire, respect and are you secretly hoping I will be just like him/her? And 'what' is it you like about that DM? I hate to say it, but Brendan Lee Mulligan is my favorite DM; his show has a lot of production value, but I feel like he's a genuinely knowledgeable and adept storyteller, and is quick on his feet in terms of adaptability.

@FatherDondo First time I heard of the Simic Hybrid and at this point I am not sure if I feel very confident to guide it within a setting beyond the Ravnica setting after reading this. I think Tasha did not add or change anything except the CON stat modifier. It's definitely not a 'no' against the Simic Hybrid but needs more getting into the material before saying yes :-) (if that makes sense ;-)
