I've never played a druid before, so it could be interesting. I'd really like to be able to play it from 1st level though, to get accustomed to the class' abilities and powers gradually.

You will be playing the Druid from Level 1, but by virtue of your background you'll also have a compliment of Rogue attributes in addition to that.


Do you want us to roll for stats or use point buy?

Go ahead and use point buy.

If you plan on switching to another class eventually, then give yourself +2 on dexterity, only choose 2 initial skills instead of 4, and only apply double proficiency to one skill. Also, please let me know which class you plan on taking up.

Start a group and let us know the name. I downloaded a character sheet and started filling it out.

I meant an urban Druid, not an Urban Druid, which as far as I know in 5th Edition isn't a separate thing. I don't keep up with Unearthed Arcana - most of what I like is in the published books.

How about a Keith Urban druid?

I've joined. I can't hang around and chat but I'll make a character and migrate it into Roll20 as soon as I can. I'm still confused - did you want me to make a L1 Druid or a L1 Rogue?

Start off with a L1 Rogue, following the guidelines I put down above.

Okay. L1 Rogue with an eye to becoming a Druid coming up.

I have posted a thing on the game's forum on Roll20, which raises a few questions I was wondering about, and which will make you realize I am already way too invested in this for a person who might not even actually get to play in said game.
Aujourd'hui j'ai vu un facteur joyeux.

I also spent way too long trying to find out how to make a character on Roll20, before realizing I have to wait for the DM to make the blank character sheets available.

Will this be skill heavy or mainly combat.  That will affect my build.  I like to make skill monkeys but a) with all rogues it may be that I am stepping on toes where I would not in other groups and b) I have played games where you only use perception, and I feel ripped off for building a skill monkey.

At the start of the game (at least) there will be a number of NPCs to help guide you along, teach you the ins and outs of the city, etc. There will be a lot of social interactions, some involving NPCs which may get a little violent but not necessarily deadly. Remember, you're basically a bunch of kids running around a populated urban center.

There will also be combat, both inside the city (down in the sewers and also in the streets) and out in the surrounding countryside.

Don't worry too much about the skill set. Just make a character that you will have fun playing. Whatever skills you choose will undoubtedly come in handy at some point.

I've made a couple of posts over on the game forum. I'd suggest we take most of the nitty-gritty over there and reserve this thread as a peanut gallery.
