You don't have to limit yourself in your selections, however having a warrior/(ranger or rogue)/magic-user/healer is a good set - the warrior making a good meat shield and a good hitter, the rogue/ranger making a good spotter (finding traps and other things key for survival), the magic-user being good for all things magical, and the healer for the essential clean-up from the after math of a fight.

Start thinking about races/classes. Going with the team dynamics thing, LM would be a fighter and I would be a mage (and a fighter). Still, be whatever you want.

Question- clerics: offensive, defensive, or both?
Posted 17 November 2007 - 02:40 PM
Which I'm sure is as bog-standard as you can get, but that's fine too. I'm sure those sites only list the most bog-standard classes and races anyway, so that no-one gets confused.

Clerics are awesome.
If anyone wants something strange or out-of -the-ordinary, just ask. Warforged Battle Sorcerer is pretty non-standard.

On that note... I think I'll make a visual table about D&D basics for beginners. It'll help me too, heh.

At this point, there are 6 possible people, so having multiples of fighters/casters/whatever wouldn't be a bad thing.
I think so far we have a fighter, a magic-user (two if DP wants to be an illusionist), and a rogue. If we want to classify them:
Fighters: Barbarian, Fighter, Paladin, Ranger, Cleric, Monk
Tactician: Ranger, Rogue, Bard
Magic-User: Wizard, Sorcerer, Bard
Healer: Cleric, Druid
It would be great to have at least one healer and another fighter. And I agree - Clerics are awesome. I'm usually a Cleric, but I want to try a Paladin this time.
Phaeon and I have a lot of books with other classes - I'll post a list of them up as soon as I make one.

Anyways, for all of us that are new to D&D (even those that are experienced), I'm going to make a quick, visual tutorial on character creation. I find pictures work better than words, and it'll help me remember things too.
I'll be getting to that in a brief moment or so.
