One of the campaigns I’m a part of is drawing to a close in the next session, so we’re all getting our next characters put together.
New one’s going to be an Eberron campaign set in Sharn, a city of towers.
This is an intrigue-heavy game. Gangs, crime, heists, espionage, grifts, all that good shit.
We will start at level 1 and only go as high as level 6.
I have this congested Froppy voice I’ve been wanting to use with the group, so I made my character a 4 ft tall grung librarian wearing a Velma sweater, with glasses.
Only character design for a frog I could find that looked any good was this tree frog grung, so she’ll probably look like this with glasses and a stack of books in her hands:
Thinking of calling her Harriet? That or Cricket.
For the class, I have no idea what to choose. The fact that we will only go as high as level 6 makes it a bit weirder.
Maybe Arcane Trickster? Never tried it before, but it would let me sneak in and out of buildings using my small size and slippery skin. Only problem there is that a librarian nerd character doesn’t strike me as the type to directly attack anyone with a weapon. But, this is D&D, so I guess it’s believable that everyone carries a dagger.
Also Grungs have poison skin, and I could probably convince the DM to let me use my skin poison as a hallucinogenic, if I wanted to use that for some kind of illusory magic.
Only other thing is that I kinda want it to be a thing that if I take enough damage, there’s a chance I lose my glasses, and take like a -4 to aim or something like that. I don’t really know what I could do to offset that with a benefit though. Maybe the glasses let me see in the dark?
