Showdown in the Stolen Lands
Go for a Wild West Fantasy theme. Not necessarily six shooters and all that, but it can be. Cowboy hats, rodeos, and train heists in Sword & Sorcery! The PCs’ are going to be convicted of crimes, either guilty or not, and released on a mission to tame the Stolen Lands. Think Excalibur meets Suicide Squad meets Magnificent Seven.
Using D&D 5th edition rules
Use either the provided array 15 14 13 12 10 8 or the 27 point buy from page 13 of the Player’s Handbook.
Classes and Backgrounds
Anything from official WotC books is fine. If you find something in the DM’s Guild please show me first. If there is a Pathfinder class that you’d like to play, we’ll first check the D&D classes to see if one fits the concept and if not, we will work on a conversion.
Definitely any PH race. You can be a half orcs or a full blooded orc.. Half-elves are “Fey-blooded” and not necessarily part elf.
Anything else, if it looks good in a cowboy hat, we can work out the mechanics on that as well.
