So I'm going into a new campaign in D&D 5e as twins who were caught at a young age by mind flayers. Instead of being assimilated, they were found to be immune of the Illithids powers. Long story short, twins play as one character, does anyone have any tips for playing two characters as one in D&D? Advice on character creation is mostly what I need, I have an idea on how to play.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to RPGSE. The tour and the help center provide guidance on how to get the most out of an SE site. There isn't enough detail in this question to provide an answer that fits the SE format. You have not indicated, for example, what class and how many other PCs are in the party. The bit about "starting as triplets" playing as twins - as a premise - is more confusing than clear. If you just want to discuss this idea, a discussion forum would be a better format for this inquiry. To fit this format, detail on character goals is needed. \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Dec 1 at 13:32

    \$\begingroup\$ Also, the question is rather ambiguous; do you want roleplaying advice or advice for how certain rules might work? \$\endgroup\$ – MrHiTech Dec 1 at 13:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ I hope I've clarified this question enough for posting, please get back to me if I should still fix it up. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – Mr Mystery Dec 1 at 14:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you talked to your DM about this? What did they say? \$\endgroup\$ – Someone_Evil Dec 1 at 14:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ They said as long as I'm not going to make this character OP I'm allowed to do this, also I've been given some leeway as the Triplet is the Big Bad Guy, or at least one of them \$\endgroup\$ – Mr Mystery Dec 1 at 14:59
