What is the most unusual race/class/alignment/patron deity combination you ever played in D&D /tg/? And did you enjoy playing the character? Pathfinder players also welcome.
Awakened Lesser Black Pudding/Monk/True Neutral/faithless.
(Homebrewed weak version of black puddings.)
Punchy slime. Not a slime-man. Just a slime. Tendrils would just fly out of the goo and bop things to death.
I'm DMing this group where one of my players has rolled a Dwarf Paladin of Moradin, standard as they come. And he decided that the best oath for his character would be the oath of the ancients. Now, I like to let my players do their thing so I allowed it, but every time we play it just feels wrong.
A demon of curiosity.
Not that horrible demon, just had disregard for humans and a boner for secrets.
Chaotic/neutral half human half dragon apocalypse shield mage. Are group has been playing the same characters for a year now. My appetite for lesser creatures that crawl slither and scutle get me into trouble alot.
LE Agent of the Grave/Blight Druid Samsaran.
Started as a protector of the sanctity of life, death, and rebirth, killing all those that broke nature's sacred cycle. Realized he inherently couldn't outlast his immortal undead foes. Decided to become that which he hunted, breaking his own cycle of reincarnation in the process, as it was the only way he could see to even the playing field, and continue to right the balance as long as saw necessary. A theoretically temporary degeneracy, to hopefully reach a much loftier permanent goal.
It's an easy thing, especially in religion, to fully dedicate yourself to a crusade so much you lose yourself and your integrity to the core values of the calling in the first place.
Is there a story-time where he met his goddess? I can see it going several distinct ways depending on the flavor of DM.
More than half of those are black paths.
I had a character in a heavily homebrewed 3.5 who started out as a human thief shadowstepper who worshiped the god of stealth and ended as a warforge (cyborg) assassin/duelist/gunslinger/shadowstepper with implanted weapons and devices who worshiped no one after his god literally told him to fuck off and die. (He decided not to.)
Grippli cleric who worshipped Groetus.
Crazy reach for touch attacks + spring attack + Protean Subdomain and Madness Domain = enemies that are nerfed to heck and back weak to nearly everything, and most turns do nothing.
The end is nigh ribbit! Glory to the end of all, the eternal janitor that is to come, who will sweep away the chaff and bring about the new world to come!
Not D&D, but I had fun in a GURPS game where my character had both the Sense of Duty (Humanity) and Callous disadvantages. While "Callous" doesn't sound so bad, the effects of that disadvantage lands more in sociopath territory.
It was fun playing an "ends justify the means" protector of humanity.
Drows represent nigga
I once played a chaotic good drow gunslinger cross classed into cleric of Cayden Calien. My group surprisingly loved the character, but then again, she was the exact opposite of a certain other chaotic good drow what with the alcoholism and short temper and total belief that she is probably the only drow people will ever meet who is upfront about what she is going to do to someone.
Drow, eh? Strange character ideas, eh? This reminds me of a thing I came across.
There's not, sadly.
I'll play it in another campaign and try for that, if I ever get the chance.
The character isn't really that fleshed out.
He's in a High level campaign and Mina liked him [spoiler or hated him, depending on how you look at it[/spoiler] enough to send him into the nine hells in order to stop an invasion of demons from another universe that would fuckup the balance of... basically everything.
I cast Forbiddence (instantly by accident but apparently it was reconnected later as multiple gods working through my) in the ninth level of hell.
>10000 meters of holy damage in every direction
>it doesn't stop for a long, long time
>I have antilife shell on
>I didn't even roll the character thinking of combat
it feels good.
Chaotic Good Human Sword-Wizard
He used all of his spells and powers to make them based around swords, No casting icicles or something, it was frozen ice swords.
This wasn't actually mine, it was a friends.
