So, the 5e Core Book is now out (or shortly will, depending on DriveThruRPG). With that being said, what is the first character you plan to build?

I am tempted to make a val'Mordane Holy Champion of Neroth, but my wife has informed me I seem to gravitate towards vals and should branch out. I could go Kelekene Barbarian/Fury, but I am somewhat torn there.

I have so many character ideas, but I playtested it and I think I will stick with Sama Magi (Mage?
Magus?). Too much fun.

The more I look at it, the more tempting that Elder Sorcerer-Conjourer is looking. But so is that Human War Mage and a Ss'ressen Shaman of Jeggal Sag.

I have a fair chunk of DM Chronicle Sheet exp banked. Some is going to go towards my Ibon. Ive yet to decide what is going to happen with him, but Im tempted to go against type.. possibly a spellcaster!

Im also partial to Gnomes and Dark-kin, but not decided on that yet either!.

Either way Ive been jotting down ideas.

I would be tempted to make a Sarishan Sorcerer-Priest, but since I've already played characters like that in two prior rules sets, I'm going for something different.

  • Fighter (Tactician) multiclassed with Rogue (Bard) to represent a Coryani patrician imperialis going through the steps of the cursus honorum
  • Psion with primary discipline of psychometabolism as a val'Abebi in the monastic Order of Althares
  • Rogue turned Shaman (Ehtzara) to represent . . . something odd -- and since I've long wanted to play an Ehtzara

I’ve been considering two things that might be neat with a reborn background.

1. A human, possibly Skohir bard-Barbarian skald who has a piece of a kio soul so he speaks all the languages from the hinterlands in one accent, and all the languages from the western lands in another - including speaking kion like a kio.

2. A gnome sorcerer with a piece of soul from a celestial giant who died pre-curse

In the playtest I was running Oozejumper as a shaman spirit etzara.. I really liked the mechanics of the shaman. But one thing that I really like about the new 5e book is the flavor given to each of the classes. The flavor text carries over to the mechanics of the class. It gives a real grounding for how a given PC fits into Arcanis.

Based on that, I'm now very strongly leaning to running Oozejumper as a Fury with a Spirit of Hate. Not nearly the spell casting of a shaman, but enough for continuity of concept. But as the object of Hate is the Mother Church, there is a slight risk of suicide by inquisitor.

I really like the Shamans. Very nice. I find the Fury hard to wrap my head around.

trying to figure out what cheestastic and fun thing to do with my Ss'ressen.

Myrmidon looks like fun, but then HC looks good as well. I need to figure out a way to stay a caster so I keep being the Snakelord, but other than that kinda open...
