There are HUNDREDS of combinations that you can stumble across – different species from animals to humans and fantastic creatures in between. You could get a character who’s a cat, a dog, a mysterious purple elf, a heavyset green orc, or a sly scaly dragonborn. Oh, and a human of course.
When it comes to professions, you might find your calling as a powerful wizard or a ponderous monk, perhaps a fearsome shiny knight or a cunning ranger. If all else fails, pick up your fanciest outfit and sing for your supper as a bard – or, pull on the cape of a rogue and try and steal it instead!
No fantastic questing character would be without a magical item, imbued with mystical powers! Will you get given a classic fantasy favourite? Red potions, long strings bows, or tomes filled with spells? Or maybe something a bit more unexpected – like, a pet snake or a set of pan pipes?
Finally, what will your character be called, and what great achievement will they have a reputation for? Some heroes have slayed dragons and saved burning villages, others have tiptoed on the dark side and caused chaos across the land. Some just have a burning desire to collect wheels of cheese, and curse themselves for the ill effects it brings on their windy botty – hey, lactose intolerant heroes exist too, okay?
