    tentacles could be used to shoot even more crossbows

    also, I've been dinking around with heroforge for various characters, and I figure I'd share a take on Auraj

    while I'm at it, let's do my take on the rest of ya' (except for our necromancer friend, I'll make something for him when I have a better impression)

    Angus

    Elidana

    Tusk

    Based off your token pictures

    I had fun with all of them, but I had to take some guesses with Elidana because I didn't find a readily accessible character sheet (plus she gets a dragon friend because she likes dragons, maybe it's a future dragon lovechild or something I dunno dragon genetics are weird)

    oh, and I couldn't remember what race Tusk is so I guessed half-orc

    He is half orc, but all party!

    And that's pretty darn close to how I built him in Hero Forge myself!

    Only difference I can see is that I made him barefoot. Shoes are for people who don't have an enhanced unarmored AC and comprehensive damage resistance!

    Though, as discussed last night he DOES own shoes. They were a gift and he doesn't want them to get dirty.

    Tusk's mom worries that he'll catch a cold. She thinks that being possessed and thereby empowered by the Great Mad Boar Spirit is "just a phase".

    pretty dang close, though she doesn't have a familiar. just General Sparks, The Arsonist Dog.

    so how much of a priority should I put in getting my dexterity score to 16?

    because there's a lot of feats I want to take


    Sharpshooter, Alert, Skulker, and Gourmand are all things I REALLY want

    but I have to chooooooooose (let's not forget that intelligence score at 11)

    Honestly, getting your Dex up is pretty darn important. Your accuracy and damage both depend on it. I'd suggest planning long term to push it to 20, and taking feats with the leftover attribute bumps. I only took a feat at 4 myself because I set myself up with an odd numbered Strength score to start and planned to get a feat that included another +1 Strength. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't be messing with feats until much higher level, unless they looked game changing (like Great Weapon Master will at level 8).

    Also, the only ways to get more feats in 5e are to start as a Human, or to dip into the Fighter class, whose progression gives them 7 attribute bonuses/feat opportunities instead of the 5 everybody else gets. But that would be a super long-term solution, since they get the two that other classes don't get at 6th and 14th level.

    The other option is to lay hands on a pair of Gloves of Dexterity, which set your Dex to 19.

    worth considering!

    by the time I need that extra magic item slot, I could probably get that 16 dex

    so I could take a feat with a dex bonus at level 8

    then go with +2 dex at level 12 to put me at 18 dex

    from there I can go for sharpshooter or another +2 dex

    I like that more than half the party can Speak with Animals, and we're all like "do you want to talk to the dog? No? Me neither. Just gonna wind up on a witness list if you try to communicate with him."

    it's a city that worships an evil god and half their guards are dead. it's like it's begging to be robbed.

    At that point, it'd be evil not to rob it.
