I'm new to D&D and I just got my hands on a few of the books. I need help in understanding this one issue.
When multiclassing, your character level is the total of the individual class levels they have. I was reading about drawbacks to multi-classing and read that you cannot go beyond a total character level of 20.
Is that true?
If that's true, and you can't go beyond a total level of 20, then would it hurt to set a limit of 2 or three classes you can multiclass into that can be maxed out to level 20 each.
I'm trying to avoid becoming over powered.
