If you are still looking for players I would be very much interested in rolling a character for 5e

That's a total of 11 people. Well there's 2 groups right there. I'm going to limit it to 1 more person at the most, but we'll see who stays for the whole thing.

Muse, I will allow your staff of the war mage, so it's a +1 quarterstaff, and acts as a +1 arcane focus and counts as a rare item.

Andy, I do not have my books with me this night, so I will approve tomorrow.

No worries ^_^

One thing I wanted to go over with you as an errata suggestion.

The Great Weapon fighting style says that any roll of 1 or 2 on a damage die lets you reroll.  That works great for Greataxes, but I recommend only rerolling 1s if there are two dice.  Otherwise you're looking at a minimum damage of 6 before any modifers are added.

That is possible, except that no matter what your second roll is, even if it's another 1 or 2, you have to take the second result. So if I hit with a Greatsword and roll 3 damage(1 and 2) I can choose to reroll. But if I get a 3 and a 1 then I have to accept the 4 that I got.

Never thought of that.

Well, it's not an advantage to me to suggest the rule (more a disadvantage, honestly), but I still think it's something that the developers overlooked.

In 4e (yes, I liked 4e, at least before Essentials) they gave some 2-dice weapons like maul-equivalent exotic weapons a reroll on 1 ability but some 1-die weapons like greataxe-equivalent exotic weapons a reroll on either 1 or 2, so I know it balances better that way.

Although, come to think of it, maybe I'll just go with Dueling.  That picture does look more like a longsword than a greatsword...

Edit: Dueling seems cool also and will fit the concept.  I made a few changes and added in some minor tweaks to the artifact's, with minor properties and all that I missed initially.  Hope that's cool.

A Cloak of Invisibility is Legendary, not Rare.

So, I want one anyway.  :P

Faeli, i intend to run 2 different games with the two groups. By limiting to one more (of which you are already one) it keeps the groups manageable. Both groups will start relatively the same. However as players make choices, fail/succeed at checks, the adventure will break off.

Ruby, you may not have a cloak of invisibility. If you want something like it you can use at your level I reccomend a Cloak of Elvenkind. It wont make you invisible but enemies will have disadvantage when trying to spot you visually.

Also, just a quickie note. Please, PLEASE, if you have divine powers of any kind, list your God/Goddess. If your character is religious in any way, do this as well. If you have questions regarding particular gods/goddesses, you may ask, and I will be more than happy to answer you. Not all of the Forgotten Realms gods are listed in the book, sadly, so some of the ones around are not listed there.

Ruby, your items are approved.

Muse, you do not need components to copy spells into your spellbound at the start of the game. And at every level you get 2 spells to add to your book from existing levels. You basically discover them as you research your magic.

Sorrow when you say 18/8 are you giving us a modifier? Because if you are, they're off.

18/+4
10/0
16/+3
12/+1
13/+1
8/-1

Also, how did you get your stats that high? You only had 4 points to play with. 2 for being human and 2 for your 1 ability score increase. It looks like you used 5 points.
