I'm going for CHR 14.

Would have been nice to grab that WIS 14, but I need to lock in a good CHR and with the snake draft it will be forever before it gets back to me.

Something I was thinking about. Even with a snake draft, there's a bit of a bonus to going early to get the highest picks because D&D 5e encourages specialization.

With 7 picks, that means there's going to be 4 "forward" and only 3 "backward" picks - which also favors going early.

When doing this for real it might be worth it to give those going late some small boon. Perhaps an extra floating +1 to your lowest, or something similar.

Yea, I think that's definitely a consideration. @el-remmen's system countered that by having the order go in from lowest to highest value pick in the previous round, but that's tough to do with mine since there a lot of non-numerical picks.

+1 to some of the lower stats makes sense.

It's time to go beyond Galaxy Brained.

... let's see. That's right. We're talking Multiple-universe STRING THEORY BRAINED!

That means there can only be two valid picks for me-
1. Intelligence of 14.

And then ... wait for it. WAIT FOR IT!

2. 2 bonus feats, Final Con no higher than 10.

Mic. Dropped. /snarf out

Oh, and that puts @Swarmkeeper up at #30, with a tough act to follow.

Ah, you guys got my #1, #2 and #3 picks. Ooof. Well, that's why it's an auction.

@TwoSix, the "one random feat, +1 ability score". How random is random? Could it be "Spell Sniper" or "Heavy Armor Mastery" and it's up to us to make sure we fulfill the requirements? Or is it picked after the character is done and one that the character can legally take (even if not particularly useful).

Also, when will we know what it is? You mention trading is possible,would what feat it is be known early enough to potentially trade with another?
