Archetype/Kit Ideas

  • Storyteller [DM]

    So i am lazy and I like making my player base do my thinking for me, so I am going to give you a few examples of what I want to see, and you do the rest.

    Some ground rules:

    1. Do not comment on each others ideas.
    2. Do not comment on each others ideas.
    3. Do not comment on each other ideas.

    I don't care if they are unbalanced, broken, or ridiculous. Something might give me an idea to submit to our script team to make and I do not want balance- just let your creativity flow.
