I have been spending all my free time playing Dungeons and Dragons lately and I’ve been building a lot of characters based on operas and opera singers. I thought I’d spend the next couple weeks showing you guys some of my character concepts.

For Siegfried, I used the Celestial-Blooded Aasimar race from Volo’s Guide to Monsters and the Barbarian Class from the Player’s Hand Book.  He’s strong, charismatic, and dumb as bricks. I gave him the Folk Hero background for obvious reasons, and proficiency in Smith’s Tools because he was the only one strong enough to forge Nothung, the dragon slayer great sword he uses to slay Fafner. He’s Totem of the bear because not only is he super tough, Siegfried’s pet bear is my favourite part of the story!

  1. Hi Lauren,

    I was walking by St. John’s yesterday and I was reminded of how we ran into each other over the summer. I realized that we should have exchanged contact information and don’t know why I didn’t think of anything other than Facebook at the time! It looks like my email gets sent to you with this comment, so feel free to get in touch through that!
