Upcoming Dungeons and Dragons Game

Playing a Wood Elf Druid

My brother’s going to be running an online Dungeons and Dragons: Fifth Edition (5E 🔍) game. I’ll be playing with my son, and two of our mutual friends; Who are also brothers.

I’m playing a wood elf druid named Carric Caerdonel. We’re starting out at 4th level.

Carric Caerdonel's stat block…

For Carric, I’m loading up with spells. By default, I’m preparing several ritual spells, which means given time, the character can cast those spells without expending slots. Which leaves healing, control spells, and those from the Circle of the Land.

As with all druids, he’s positioned to be a spy, albeit one for the resistance.

update: I spent a bit more time thinking, and chose to go with the Circle of the Land: Mountain archetype. This felt a bit more correct for the character. I also found that Goodberry and Beast Sense are not listed on 5esrd.com.

update: After this evenings session, we updated our characters to 5th level. Those changes are inline. I also added checkboxes to allow for my to track my character during the session.

Personality Trait
I know a story relevant to almost every situation.
When I perform, I make the world better than it was.
My flock are those with whom I share my tales.
I once satirized a noble who still wants my head. It was a mistake that I will likely repeat.

We’re starting in a small town. The region is oppressed by wood elf patrols. Carric has taken up residence in one of the inns in a town oppressed by the wood elves. For the last several years, he’s exchanged an evening of poetic recitations for a humble place to stay. This last year, he’s been reciting an epic elven poem which he’s been translating into common.
