I am playing a DnD-5e campaign with some coworkers; It's my first role play in, oh, decades and something like my fourth character. I know when to ask for help. Help!
I have instructions to create a level 4 character to join an existing party, and I had in mind to create a very, very old gnome witch of the forest; something like a withered female healer. I am using the PHB as a reference, as well as roll20 and other online resources and the Android application "Fight Club 5".
I feel that this character is quite powerful for his level, so please tell me all the mistakes I made when interpreting the building rules.
Looking at cantrips, a gnome from the forest pulls two out of the door; Minor illusion Y Talk to little beasts (which refers to Beast Speech, which refers to Talking with animals; if necessary, I will still limit it to small creatures). As for the sorcerer, at level 4 he would have 3 cantrip slots; adding Volume Pact It is said to produce three additional slots for cantrip. The total reaches 2 + 3 + 3 = 8 cantrips for a gnome sorcerer of 4th level forest. Really?
Looking at spellsOn the 4th level, a sorcerer would have two spaces for 2nd level spells and five spaces for "known spells" (which, as I understand it, can only be changed when you win a level).
Looking at invocations, on the 4th level, a sorcerer would have two invocation spaces. I'm not sure about the difference between invocations Y cantrips; For my character I have chosen Agonizing Blast (which works as a permanent reinforcement for a separate cantrip) and Mask of Many Faces (which, apparently, could be a cantrip?).
Then statistics. My basic statistics are:
but then I can add:
- +1 DEX of the Forest Gnome race,
- +2 INT of the Gnome race,
- +2 from Warlock Level 4, which I have divided between CON and CHA,
Then my last block of statistics becomes:
DEX: 10+1 = 11
CON: 12+1 = 13
INT: 14+2 = 16
CHA: 15+1 = 16
and to Hit points that should give me 8 (base) +2 (modifier CON) + 3×5 (fixed increase of each level above the 1st) = 25 HP.
Does all this seem reasonable, or is it me? road off base here? I really don't intend to be a munchkin; I had this person in mind before analyzing its construction.
That is the core of my question. For additional information, here are the spells that I thought I could choose:
- Blade ward
- Eldritch Explosion (with Agonizing Explosion)
- Wizard's hand
- Minor illusion (comes with Forest Gnome)
- Talk to small animals (comes with Forest Gnome)
- Message (free with volume)
- Heal wounds (free with volume)
- Spare the Dying (free with Tome)
- Infernal Reprimand (as a second level, you would gain an additional 1d10)
- Foggy step
- Known spells:
- Eldritch explosion
- Infernal Reprimand
- Invisible servant
- Foggy step
- Spider climb
- Dying explosion
- Mask of many faces
I give you the most humble and sincere thanks.
