Episode 7: The Changing of the Dice

So, I swapped out my dice for a different set of D6. Will it make a difference?

Character #31:
Str 7
Int 11
Wis 13
Dex 9
Con 7
Cha 8
Class selected: Cleric
HP 4
AC 6
Proficiencies: Divine Blessing, Theology
Gear: Holy Symbol, Mace, Wooden Shield, Banded Plate, Small Sack, 1 week’s rations
Notes: Nope.

Character #32:
Str 12
Int 5
Wis 8
Dex 9
Con 11
Cha 17
Class selected: Bard
HP 5
AC 2
Proficiencies: Magical Engineering, Knowledge (History), Performance (epic poetry)
Gear: Crossbow, Case with 20 Bolts, Short Sword, Dagger, Leather Armor, Backpack, Journal, Quill & Ink, 1 week’s rations, 20 gp
Notes: A low intelligence historian. Dropping Str to 10 to raise Cha to 18 is a (sorry) no-brainer.

Character #33:
Str 11
Int 12
Wis 4
Dex 12
Con 12
Cha 8
Class selected: Assassin
HP 6
AC 2
Proficiencies: Fighting Style (two weapon), Intimidation
Gear: Crossbow, Case with 20 Bolts, Sword, Dagger, Leather Armor, Backpack, 2 weeks’ rations, 6 gp
Notes: This really isn’t going well.

Character #34:
Str 16
Int 6
Wis 12
Dex 12
Con 10
Cha 13
Class selected: Fighter
HP 5
AC 5
Proficiencies: Alertness, Signaling
Gear: Pole Arm, Mace, Wooden Shield, Chain Armor, Backpack, Lantern, 2 Flasks Military Oil, 1 week’s rations, 10 gp
Notes: Not horrible. If exchanging stats, I would have considered Barbarian and dropping Wis, Dex, and Cha to boost Con.

Character #35:
Str 11
Int 12
Wis 9
Dex 11
Con 11
Cha 12
Class selected: Thrassian Gladiator
HP 6
AC 8
Proficiencies: Fighting Style (Weapon & Shield), Manual of Arms
Gear: Whip, Pole Arm, Net, 2 Swords, Steel Shield, Chain Armor, Backpack, Amphora of Oil, 2 weeks’ rations, 42 gp
Notes: How very average. Not a single stat modifier. Dropping two stats to get Str to 13 would be worthwhile, but there aren’t enough points there to get to 16.

The Cleric is an obvious toss, and I think the Gladiator and Fighter are keeps. The Bard is probably the third keeper, for that Charisma bonus with NPCs. Just don’t put the Bard in charge of anything.
