So in my D&D game, I have a character, which I absolutely love. He has made a large impact on the plot, which has helped move the storyline along. There is one problem though. My character is a bit overpowered. He is a Tiefling Fighter, and has a large connection to the storyline. My DM is fine with whatever decision I make. What should I do?
So, first, make it fun. If you're going to ask for advice here ... you need to set up a new thread, provide all the details, and make it a poll for people to vote! That's right- you can have the (lack of) wisdom of crowd.
Next, ignore the poll. If you're asking this question, you know the answer. Your character MUST DIE. And this isn't some sort of "DM May I" scenario. No, you don't ask the DM to die.
You. Demand. It.
That's right. You need to start charging into situations with a ferocity and stupidity that would make Leeroy Jenkins go- "Dude, maybe you should wait a second and think about this?"
You need to start thinking of outrageous actions at all time in order to chew through whatever plot armor the DM is trying to provide you. "The King is saying that if I bow, he won't have his 5000 Tarrasques kill us all? YOU AREN'T THE KING OF ME!!!!!"
Anyone can live in 5e; but to die, and to die spectacularly? That's special.
