Something someone posted in another thread got me thinking about the make up of adventuring parties at various tables (or virtual tables) and was curious what people's groups look like in terms of class/lineage/level. So that's what this thread is about, very simple. . . If you are running the game, feel free to include anything you've noticed about running for such a combination of character types.

Group One: Alston & His Big Folk
  • Alston Turin: Forest Gnome Bard 5 (College of Valor)/Wizard 2 (Diviner)
  • Nora Darhk: Tiefling Ranger 3 / Sorcerer 4 (Wild Magic)
  • Rollo Snow: Orc-blood* Barbarian 5 (Berserker) / Fighter 2
  • Thron Greenman: Human Druid 7 (Circle of the Land: Swamp)
Group Two: Revenants of Saltmarsh
  • Grandinar the Exile: Mountain Dwarf Eldritch Knight 3 / Wizard 1
  • Lamech ben Nabal: Fey-Touched* Bard 4 (College of Lore)
  • Yaakov ibn Saruuma abu Dhana al-Deera: Human Paladin 4 (Oath of Charity)**
Group two also has an NPC ranger that travels with them - Moishe Pipik: Forest Gnome Ranger 3

* Orc-Blood and Fey-Touched are basically "half-orc" and "half-elf" respectively, except since orcs are extinct and elves are reclusive/disappeared, these are born to any human family that has that lineage in their past.

** A homebrewed variation on Oath of Devotion.

WOW!! That's a lot of gaming. Do you play weekly in each game, or is it a mixture over the course of a month?

We're playing a 5E Midnight campaign and we have a human rogue and human paladin, both 1st level.

I played yesterday as DM for the first time in over 2 months for a little under 3 hours and that seemed like a lot to me. The hour and a half I spent putting together the adventure was more effort than I was expecting. Had to knock the rust off. Since the pandemic and having been on permanent disability since January of 2019, you'd be surprised how much the brain atrophies when you have no set schedule or nowhere to be and nothing to do on any regular basis. Hard to maintain concentration for more than more than a few minutes, but I'm looking forward to getting back into playing more often now.

No rule is inviolate
Kingmaker 5E adaptation

Baron Cormac - Human Bard 11 (college of lore)
"Daisy" - Human Barbarian 11 (wild magic)
Brycen - Human Wizard 11 (divination)
Eugene - Half-elf Paladin 11 (vengeance)
Ulfar - Human Druid 11 (circle of land)

The players wanted a heavy dose of kingdom building and campaign politics, war, subterfuge, etc., and most opted for human to invest in that style of RP based on the setting itself being human-dominant. We started this around 1 1/2 years ago (slow advancement on purpose to enjoy our lower levels), and "Baron Cormac" is the only original character from level 1. Some died, some retired (roleplay reasons, e.g. to get married to an NPC and settle down). It's been the most RP heavy and complex campaign I've run in roughly 30 years of DMing. There hasn't been any real chatter about "optimizing" the group. They figure it out.

Craziest part is that these are folks I met when I moved states in 2019, and despite being mostly strangers who met in a game store, some who'd never played D&D before, we've clicked into something special. It's been a blast.

Every group expect group 3 is roughly every other week. Group 3 is about once a month.

I've got three games running, 2 have been active, the 3rd which I DM is only just getting back up and running after a long hiatus.

Group 1 from the game I run, all level 6.
  • A hungry hungry halfling storm barbarian
  • A fire loving dragonborn draconic sorcerer of the local town watch
  • A mushroom loving lizardfolk moon druid
  • An emotionless, always introducing himself, warforged unit serial number 8008, artificer (that psychic one from a while back)
  • A lovable half-elf lore bard, though may soon be a cleric of some description.

Group 2, run by the player of the warforged unit in my campaign. All level 7.
  • An entertainer tabaxi arcane trickster that I keep thinking is a bard
  • An air genasi tempest cleric
  • A fire genasi eldritch knight with a cool radiant damage dealing morningstar, arguably the best in the group on account of it being my PC
  • An annoying halfling drunken style monk (player is great, but man can his monk be annoying)
  • A bird-person (starts with A) land druid. DM once forgot she was a bird-person and when she wanted to fly up somewhere mentioned she wasn't high enough level for that wildshape
  • A tabaxi lore bard, now deceased after a disastrous run in with an undead draco-hydra. Player is now running the tempest cleric
Group 3. Run by the tempest cleric player from my friend's game. Playing the phandelver adventure, we've recently hit level 3.
  • Aasimar vengeance paladin, possibly the main healer
  • Human moon druid, possibly the main tank
  • Human Fighter, might be a champion, might still be being decided. Would like to be the main damage dealer but can't roll higher than a 5
  • Halfling rogue, can't recall the subclass, spent a large amount of time going through the options. Probably thief or assassin, maybe soul knife. Has a creepy voice which accounts for why he's so intimidating
  • Then there's me, the greatest dwarven war mage evar! Now have a staff of defence so no longer have to worry so much about getting hit due to an AC of 10. I often somehow ended up in the front lines, not the best.
Bonus Group. When we were last locked down I DMed some thunder rift adventure modules for my friends, turning them into a very loose mini campaign. They finished at level 4 having run 4 or 5 of them.
  • A pixie rune knight, based on the wee free men.
  • The plainest, most average human ranger a friend could make, named Bob.
  • A loxodon, 5 dex, swashbuckling rogue. Hid by hoping that no one would want to talk about the elephant in the room.
  • A dwarf war cleric, basically Dougal from father Ted.
  • A tiefling hexblade warlock known as Stupid Sexy Flanders.

He / Him
I just recently ended a campaign (and moved cross country), and don't have a current game. Here's the group as it ended:

The Starborn
Vimak: Goliath Barbarian (Path of the Totem Warrior) 10
Moira: Tiefling Warlock (Fiend) 9 / Bard 1
Quiet: Kenku Rogue (Thief) 10
Gazu: Gnome Artificer (Artillerist) 5 / Wizard (War Mage) 5
Cabbage: Aasimar Cleric (Grave) 10
