So in a campaign I am currently a lv 4 Sorcerer/lv 1 Bard. Between sessions I tend to think about my character filling in gaps and in his backstory so to figure out how to play the character. He was orphaned and adopted by a significant figure in a church, he grew up in the church and was trained as a fighter from a very young age(flavor reason for why my sorcerer is proficient in the longsword), his background is acolyte for he is a fully ordained priest in his church although not a cleric. His natural abilities were in sorcerery, and while his adopted parents didn't like it they were supportive.
I gave him a level in bard for 2 reasons, our cleric likes to play tank and not healer and my wisdom sucks so cleric was out.
I feel I have 7 valid points here in summary why he should have been a sorcerer/paladin;
- He was raised by the church
- He was trained as a warrior
- He is a full fledged priest of his church
- He holds his church in great respect
- He matches his god's alignment
- He even prays to his god during breaks
- I only choose bard for healing as a meta gaming decision
However I do not want to just ask my GM to retcon this decision, it'd set a bad example if nothing else. But he has said that he is open to homebrew(within reason) and requests for items we want to be added to the pool of randomly generated treasure he has.
Is there a way I can swap that bard level for paladin in the RAW or any known non-gamebreaking homebrew?
