Finally sitting down and trying to decide what I'm gonna do for level 3 in my d&d game: pick a Rogue subclass? Which one, if so? Or do I start the magic-user multiclassing I've been threatening to do? And which kind of magic-user, if so?

So many choices.


After much thought, my kobold rogue is putting her third level into Sorcery rather than into a third level of rogue. She now possesses Wild Magic, which she is using almost entirely for illusions.

There are lots of attack spells I passed up. She's not a pacifist or anything, she's just... I dunno. Illusions feel right for someone who prefers to present herself as a musician.

Next level she'll probably become a Swashbuckling Rogue.

Also the GM told me she's playing a lizard lady in another campaign who is (a) a fountain of lewd and (b) protective of others, which she realized is basically playing ME

and I am like

when did I gain a reputation of being protective of other people, omg, I think of myself as super antisocial and spiky

but people call me "dragonmom" sometimes so

@egypturnash You think of the little baby trans folk! The weak, the downtrodden!

@Filene I just think about how few role models I had for being A Trans and, well, shit happens I guess.

@egypturnash I don't have a sufficient compliment for your role modelhood. Ideally I'll be as well-recognized and have some accolades to feel inspiring enough (outside of existence)

@egypturnash Illusions are the best though! You don't have to fight someone if you trick them into thinking they've already lost.

@Eyeless EXACTLY. I will have to start thinking about clever ways to use the illusions I have.

@egypturnash A classic, if you have an illusion-making cantrip: The Chair That Isn't There. I mean it won't win a fight, but...
