Day 9 of the 30-day D&D Challenge asks an interesting question: what’s the favorite character you’ve never played? I guess some will answer this in terms of characters they’d rolled up but never got to use, but I’m going to answer this in terms of character class.
I’d always wanted to play a swashbuckling merchant-adventurer, a fusion of Sindbad from the original Arabian Nights and the Sindbad of Ray Harryhausen’s Hollywood. I’ve always liked the idea of exploring faraway, exotic locations, so a class that’s made to travel like this would’ve really been up my alley.
