Half-dragons, as many types as possible but primarily Radiant Dragon, Oceanus Dragon and Battle Dragon.

Same for playing actual Dragons :)

Question for the community

What would YOU like to see as a 5% option. Don't worry too much about stats and such, just neat concepts that you would like to play, that you would choose from.

Before you answer - DO NOT read other posts, or if you do don't let them effect your own. Don't read and go 'Oh, such-and-such has already posted 'A Harpy.' So I'd best not say 'Harpy' even though I would want one. Instead I'll post this other neat thing...'

Answer for yourself and only yourself. That way if I see ten people on this posting 'A Harpy' for example, I know that they're a much desired race and (if feasable) should definatly go on the list.

GO!
  • Helmed Horror or animated armor. Incapable of speech, also does not need rest, sleep or food.
  • Death Knight or sentient corporeal undead (that are not vampires).
  • Magical Beasts (awakened animals: https://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/awaken.htm). With correct stats and sizes (meaning if it has 3 str, then it has 3 str).

Using "It is pointless", "It is irrelevant", "I can't believe people think this way" too often gives impression that you want to make people shut up and not talk to them.

I'd like to see a Lich with a phylactery fixture that has to be set down somewhere. It could act like a MoD and have so many 'times' it could be destroyed before the PC dies. I don't know how this would work and it obviously isn't practical but the Lich is one of the more interesting creatures in D&D.

[*]Cambion
These are a thing? What are the stats?
+2 STR
+4 CHA
Darkvision
Infernal Language
+3 ECL

Three specific shapes dependent on level:
1 - 9: Imp Form (5 DR, SR 10, Regen 1, Fire Damage Immunity 25%)
10 - 19: Osyluth (10 DR, SR 20, Regen 3, Fire Damage Immunity 50%)
20 - 30: Pit Fiend (15 DR, SR 32, Regen 5, Fire Damage Immunity 100%)
Do the forms act as -polymorph, with regards to gear merging, spell casting etc?

Personally I’d like to play a shade (shadovar). It would open up a lot of interesting ambassador RP and make the shadow plane an even more interesting place, and a place to have a racial specific faction.

Its been said a few times in this thread. Probably more than a few; But Lich

For that matter, any sentient undead would be great and could add flavor. 3.5 Has had a ton of sentient undead with varying alignments, but all come accross the same shortfall - they are obviously undead and have those societal deficiencies.

Sentient Skeleton
Ghast
Wight
Ghost?

Another fun option is a Death Knight.

The trouble is, it is supposed to be a "mighty warrior", so it wouldn't be fitting to become one at level 1. Maybe some sort of transformative rite?

Mind Flayer
Dragon
Kesa Hillside
Emilia Sabine von Brandt - Killed with Vampire Daughter Elizabeth
Michaela Quinn - Killed by fallen Paladin
Naomi - Returned to Mainland
Annalisa Bradford - Sacrificed to Dark Gods
Vaen Xyvil'kor - Killed in The Xyvil'kor War

A human warrior and his cat familiar

Catch is that the cat is psychic and he is mind controlling the human warrior. So when he speaks, it's the cat mind controlling him and so on. No one would know the cat is really in charge.

So I'd play a cat wizard with a human familiar.

Ability to level to level 32

I know itll never happen, but with the amount of power from other 5% rewards, I dont feel like its too far out there from the realm of possibility.

For my 5% dream.. If I could do anything.. I'd use the 5% rolls to add features to an existing character. I'd love to see Alenai Tarska be able to continue growing in power, to gain more levels, more feats, more stat increases, for the journey not to end because she hit the level cap over 10 years ago.

I hate to burst bubbles, but this will never happen. 5% will only ever be used on new characters, not existing ones.
This too shall pass.

(I now have a DM Discord (I hope) It's DM GrumpyCat#7185 but please keep in mind I'm very busy IRL so I can't promise how quick I'll get back to you.)

Off the top of my head I'd like to see some of the following:

One or two of the half breeds like Half-Fey, Half Celestial, Half Demon/Devil or Half (Orc) Ogre.
A shade or one of the shadovar.
Were curses: Wolves, Rats, Bears, Ravens etc.

Specific class abilities like animal companion or a familiar, maybe turn undead or smite good/evil.

Half-Giant

Might be redundant with Firbolg being an option but the Firbolg lore doesn't really suit what I'd want in a character.

Otherwise Half-Troll or full Troll.
