Play the Heroes

In "Play the Heroes" we look at adapting characters from books, movies, and other popular culture to player characters for Dungeons & Dragons 5e. Because many classes in D&D become much more customizable by third level (Paladin's Oath, Cleric's Domain, Monk's Tradition, etc.), we're going to create a character at third level. This lets us get much closer to the character in fiction as the character on the sheet. A couple other ground rules: we're using the standard array for stat generation and most characters will follow their fictional race (usually Human). It's worth noting that while these characters will be "legal" as far as the rules, concessions may be made while selecting skills, abilities, or features to keep them true to the fictional character that could prevent them being ideal in-game.
