Rob is a middle-aged peasant who got caught in the crossfire of a wizard's duel and, rather than being incinerated, became infected with magic. He's trying to learn to control it because it's potentially the only good thing to have ever happened to him.
I have a Levistus Tiefling Shadow Sorcerer named Morticia. She created an Undertaker background for her. Rolled great. She is a level 3 with a 20 CHA, 17 CON and 16 DEX. The rest are 10 or 11. Her appearance is a pale colored skin (since from the icy hell), black hair with is done up in kind of Princess Leia type buns to mostly cover her curly horns. If you have ever seen the show Gentleman Jack... that is how she dresses. Her arcane focus is a 2" crystal skull. I really have the skull and it sits at the edge of the battle map in front of me. She was not born with her sorcerer powers, she was 39 and acquired them will preparing a body and some inky black shadow emerged from it knocking her out, and killing the others in the mortuary, which was her wife and step-child. She seeks to know what happened, why she was spared, how the powers came to be. Chromatic Orb is so far her favorite spell.
I'm currently playing a Half-Elf Sorcerer named Dylian, he's been pretty fun. Dylian is a guy with plans, just, not great plans, his ideas often backfire or end up causing a fight cause he's not the brightest. Example of a plan of his: The party woke up on a ship and saw a large group of people leaving the ship, the problem was that there were 16 customs officers blocking the way to the mainland, and none of the party members had IDs or Passports on them, that's when Dylian noticed that above the customs officers was a fabric canopy, so Dylian did what he thought was a great idea, shooting the canopy with 3 Firebolts, causing a panic. The only problem, there was people under the canopy and it was weaker than he thought, so many people died in the ensuing fire, causing a panic and also causing the customs officers to start shooting everyone with sleep darts to calm them down, then, as it turns out, there was a group of orcs in the cluster of people leaving the ship, so they all started attacking everyone, then a giant monster showed up from seemingly nowhere and also started attacking everyone. So many people died... More about Dylian himself, unlike most Half-Elves, Dylian wasn't born from a Human and Elf being together, or even a Half-Elf and Human, or any other usual combination, instead, Dylian was born from an Elf father, and a Fey mother, which is how he got his magic (Wild), from living in the Feywild for the first 20 odd years of his life, at which point he left the Feywild, but not from a portal, oh no no, that would be too simple, instead, he was shot down into the material plane from orbit, all he had was a feather falling spell to slow his descent. He ended up landing on a ship in the middle of the ocean where he spent the next year or so of his life before finally returning to the mainland. His stats are pretty good, at level one, his stats were 20 in Cha, 18 in Con, and 16 in Dex though he did have a 6 in Int and an 8 in Str.
I play a high elf wild magic sorceror. My father was a wizard, but decided to settle down and forget the adventure. When I was born, I shot a firebolt into his face, and he threw me into a river. I was swept away and dropped into a cave that was flooded. As I was drowning, a tornado picked me up and tossed me all around. I was dropped into the same cave and struck by lightning. An elemental shield guardian saved me. Its homebrew. It looks like a shield guardian, but the plate armor is rock with fire frills, the legs are a miniature tornado, and the joints are water. It left me at the orphanage in Waterdeep. I left when I was 64, so about 15 in maturity. I joined an adventuring party to free a town from a bunch of kobold raiders and a young red dragon. I am trying to find out more about my magic. I also have a weird ability to cast plane shift into any of the major elemental planes, and when I do, I turn into the appropriate myrmidion for that plane(ie water plane water myrmidion), and its super useful. My go-to spell/spell combo is fireball with empowered spell and twinned spell. When my party is in the radius, I use it with lightning bolt instead. I also have an amulet of blasting, which casts scorching ray, and I can cast firebolt, so I am practically Iron Man. My party has a healer WITH NO HEAL SPELLS, so my entire party has to buy an enormous amount of heal potions in town. I have an entire bank vault of gold, because I never buy a lot of stuff, I only get loot. I also have a homebrew weapon, an arrow of banishment, which has a portable hole that, when it strikes a surface or object, goes inside a bag of devouring and tears open a portal into the astral plane, sucking everything within 10 ft. It doesnt need aiming, and as long as the monster is large or smaller and not a spell caster, it is practically an insta kill. I have a young gold dragon that imprinted on me once, so I can ride it. I also have a hand crossbow planted on my gauntlet. I have my staff as a double sided halberd/trident, so im kind of op. I once challenged a demon to a flyting to escape dying. A flyting is pretty much a rap battle. My name is Zargorth Dakzonar. I am level 14. I am planning to multiclass to wizard. I as a player have a pretty great philosophy: if you die, just rename your character. If you have homebrew stuff, just make it your child.
