Hey, guys, Professor Bill of Comic Book University and I guess I’m up next to talk about my character for the Open Legend RPG game on Fridays at noon Eastern on the Nerdarchy YouTube channel. I think that, by now, it’s pretty obvious that I have an affinity for comic books, so I took my inspiration from the comics to get in my character’s head. Open Legend RPG is an open source roleplaying game designed by Brian Feister, who sponsors our weekly live game. The core rules for the game are available for free online here.
Open Legend character build from concept to gameplay
As a relatively new staff writer for Nerdarchy.com the opportunity to join my colleagues William C. (aka Professor Bill from Comic Book University), Megan R. Miller, Nerdarchy.com editor-in-chief Ty Johnston and Nerdarchist Ted in a weekly live stream game run by Nerdarchist Dave is phenomenal.
This time we delve into a 5E D&D character build suggestion from a viewer for this episode of the podcast.
D&D 5e Archer Builds Hitting the Mark | Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition
5e D&D Archer Builds Hitting the Mark | 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Nerdarchy tackles the viewer question of the best archer builds for D&D 5e.
We look at the Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, and even the spell caster classes from the player’s handbook to determine who is the best archer in all of the fantasy lands. We also talk about the college of valor Bard, Sorcerer, and Warlock as arcane archers.
We look at the armor, skill, and weapon proficiencies for each of the classes to determine their role as an archer. Then delve into class features and spells to determine the all around effectiveness a class would have with archery.
Hello and welcome Nerdarchist Dave here. Today we are doing a character build for an archer character using the seven steps I had laid out previously. Those seven steps are- race, class, background, ability scores, weapon, archetype, and feats.
1st Level Character Build-
We start with human because this build is going to be dependent on feats. I’ve got my eye on three at the moment.
Next we select our class. This is going to be fighter for the fighting style at 1st level. Then we are going to want pick our background. Here we will have a lot more leave way.
I thought the Domain selection added such versatile to clerics that I went with the Tempest domain since I wanted to have some control over my enemies.
What started out as a simple cleric concept for getting me through all of the terrors that will be thrown my way ended up as a really fleshed out cleric character build with personality and depth. I sat there scratching my head.
