    "DM can adjust" sounds about as bad an idea as "healers adjust".

    Sure, piss off someone that has control over whether your character lives or not.

    I dislike those players who make a character that's difficult for a DM to deal with...on porpoise.

    "The party are gratefully sheltering in the shade of the cantina. The desert sun beats down mercilessly outside. There is no open water for over a hundred leagues. Jim, you're flopping helplessly on the floor, suffocating as your lungs collapse under the weight of your body. What do you want to do?"

    Ok, bear with me now. Dolphin artificer using the body of a dead Warforged as a reverse scuba combat mech.

    I have a character concept like this, I made up a Dolphin Warrior of the Elements Monk. He'd walk on his fins.

    There's a D20 RPG called 13th Age that explicitly puts this into the game. Every PC has One Unique Thing that they decide in concert with the GM. Can be as small as 'I'm the only survivor of the Battle of Tubelchek', or as crazy as 'I am a dolphin using a Warforge corpse as a magical EV suit'.

    For me, it is the 5th Edition of D&D, because it's mechanically mostly the same, but absolutely awesome.

    As someone in the Webcomics thread noted, it's probably more accurate to describe dolphins as jerkasses of the sea.

    so yeah, that's Jim 100%.
