I know I haven't been active lately, but hopefully that will change since I got a tablet for Christmas and it is less cumbersome than my phone.
Anyways, to the topic at hand. I will be starting a D&D 5e campaign with two of my friends Sunday evening. I am one of the 2 PCs. We are starting at level 3, and I am starting as a level 5 Rogue (Assassin). My race will be Dhampir.
For a back story rundown, she was born a few weeks after her elven mother was bitten by a vampire, and while her husband died defending her, she remained alive to raise my character until age 5, when she was killed in her sleep by the same vampire. Until age 10, she was raised in an orphanage with terrible people (think Grelod from Skyrim). After making plans with other children, she helped murder their caretakers and escaped to a different town, where she lived on the streets for 3 years before being found and taken in by a member of an assassins' guild. Now at age 20, she seeks to find her father so she can get revenge. She also has a debt for the 7 years of asassins' training and general care owed to the guild that she must repay. Her most recent clues of her father's whereabouts will take her to the city of Neverwinter (yes, it is a Forgotten Realms campaign).
Does this seem like a clichéd idea at all, or something that may get stale quickly? More importantly, can an assassin character work well with a Ranger (most likely what the other player will be)? The main issue I see is that I am Lawful Evil and the DM mentioned that they were leaning towards Chaotic Good (yikes). Can this work, since the lawful aspect is merely my personal code of conduct? I also only kill contracts or those who cause me grief or large amounts of trouble.
Any and all feedback is appreciated!
