Characters I would rather have in the party than a kender:
  • evil PC (potentially less disruptive, definitely less annoying);
  • one-note “comic relief” PC (with his own catchphrase!) (equally annoying, less disruptive)
  • the bard with a lute that spends all his time hitting on NPCs (equally as cliche and hacky, equally as annoying and disruptive, but if they only hit on NPCs, at least you get a break once you leave the town);
  • a character cursed that during every long rest they must make a Wis save. If they fail, they are compelled to steal an item belonging to another character (equally as disruptive and annoying, but at least it is somewhat original and offers an adventure hook).

Have a PC kenku (either played by me or someone else in the group) who can only speak dialogue by repeating phrases she would have likely heard. I thought this sounded like a horrible idea until someone in a group I DM did it and was fantastic at it.

My only experience with kenders was as NPCs the DM used to 'undo' mistakes he made and/or frustrate the party. I've had paladins who would have committed genocide after a few encounters with kenders.

Did you ever see Dreamscarred Press's April Augmented 2017 for Pathfinder 1E? It had several variant subraces for, among others, the tengu. You could play a dodo tengu, emu tengu, shoebill tengu, or even a potoo tengu!

Replay Wrath of the Righteous with the same horrific group I had back in 2013/2014 (holy crap the final session was 6 years ago to the day). And not just play it again with the same bootyholes, but actually relive every session that whole year again exactly how they played out.

That crap was so horrible it made me quit Pathfinder. So glad 5e came out when it did.

Title? I don't need no stinkin' title.
Play or DM epic level 4E ever again. Played in the same epic campaign for LFR twice (different PCs, my wife wanted to play and DM) and DMed a home campaign while working insane hours.
