    Mythological Figures: Queen Penthesilea (5E)

    Possibly of interest to some folks: a Greek-inspired D&D 5E adventure path I wrote two modules for just launched on Kickstarter! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zagoragames/mother-of-monsters-the-awakening-of-naehurdamia/

    Mythological Figures: Queen Penthesilea (5E)

    Again these are built Rules-As Written so our options are limited--if I could dip into Book of Exalted Darkness, Book of Celestial Heroes, Mists of Akuma, or EN5ider I am certain there'd be a good choice other than Lucky but as it is, we're looking at either that or Magic Initiate for signifying...

    Mythological Figures: Queen Penthesilea (5E)

    I have been quietly dreading the time I can no longer procrastinate building him. ~.~ If it becomes a signifier for demigods though, it becomes a blanket thing (which means going back through the series and making room for the Lucky feat for everyone who's a demigod but doesn't have it yet)...

    Mythological Figures: Queen Penthesilea (5E)

    Reskinning her as a half-orc isn't a bad route but it's got some drawbacks--namely that we'd have to shunt down her ability scores because the half-orc doesn't give us as much to play with at the start (she has 4 feats two of which come with +1s, then +4 spent normally from the other two ABIs)...

    Mythological Figures: Queen Penthesilea (5E)

    What would you suggest? Mind you that the characters in this series are all built Rules-As-Written (albeit with renamed and reworded feats or archetypes for material that does not appear on the 5ESRD). Soooo the Lucky feat instead of Mobility, perhaps?
