You Might Need a New Pair of Everything

Posted on February 21, 2018

This is a tale of woe indeed, as the life of my first ever D&D character ended with a splat.

Our party, consisting of me as a Drow Bard, my brother as an Elven Rogue, and our other two friends as a Dragonborn Paladin, and an Elven Sorceress. Oh yeah, we also had a Wizard with us.

Being new to D&D 5e, my friend had helped me decide upon Cleric, so I ended up making a Half-Elf, Life Domain Cleric of Selune named Alura. I found out after the fact that, prior to me bringing her in, the party hadn't really had much in the way of a healer beyond a Ranger who had a few uses of Cure Wounds.

While creating Alura I was also introduced to a house rule system our DM occasionally used called ‘destiny points.’ It was a system of inspiration-like points used to provide balance in gam…
