I've been debating this for a couple weeks now and I was wondering if this is a doable build, and if a DM would even be likely to allow this considering it is almost entirely home brewed.
I am want to try a Chaotic Neutral Fullangr with a few levels in Barbarian and a few levels in Smithing.
For reference this is the page my brother in law found for me.
I am hoping that with this and a two weapon style and exotic weapon proficiency. I'll be able to dual wield siege axes. Can't figure out how to get a link for that one.
1 the axes are two handed not giant sized. (1 Figured that the character having the str and racial trait of counting as one size larger would make it a one handed for him.
Since I also like playing where the DM has everyone choose one melee and one ranged weapon I was wanting to wrap chains around the forearms to use as improvised gauntlets and whips if necessary for this character.
With the main special things about them being that they have a silencing rune on them from the father, and other runes to allow each one to have an end that is free hanging or can reattach to the rest on command. that way they wind back onto the arms and stay there i thought acting as either gauntlets or improvised bucklers.
Or can unwind to be used like whips or grapple hooks when needed. Semi inspired by both Ghost Rider and God of War. This way he has worn them for so long that they no longer effect him as merely cumbersome and only have the natural weight problem but no extra penalties that many like to throw out as a heavy cumbersome weapon causes for nearly any roll at all. Also since when retracted they would attach to themselves they still allow for full mobility and use of hands for grasping and holding other objects and weapons. 2 The chains are not connected to the axes they are actually fused to his arms and when needing them out of the way they wrap around the arms and secure themselves. Or when needed they unravel and can be used for binding or whips or something similar. I had the thought of doing it like God of Wars chains on the weapons. Most of the time they are there but dont hinder the grip and only attach to the weapons when needed for a last resort hail mary pass ( because of the massive possible penalties for such a manouvre. Was thinking maybe he learned to fight like a barbarian from the mother while she was able and smithing from the father for the same reason. Figured if he'd been trained since an early age to wear the chains and how to use them and the same for the siege axes that would help backstory wise on why he can walk around with such heavy cumbersome equipment without many of the drawbacks.
I mean I have been repeatedly told that backstories are what allow many characters to do things they shouldnt be allowed to do if you follow the wording of RAW to a precise detail, right?
The next thing I wanted to do is a mount or companion.
In a dark cave, what he found was a dark warlock or sorcerer or whatevers abandoned experiment lab where through use of both chemicals and dark magics had been creating their own chimeras or hybrids. Almost everything in the lab had been butchered or already was. The state of the place and stench makes it hard to determine. So he decides to be merciful and move through the horrors of this place one cell at a time and check everything while quickly and painlessly as he can putting down anything that seems to be suffering which is pretty much everything. When suddenly he hears a small whimpering that seems even more out of place. He looked around until he found the source. Surrounded by the corpses of several of the butchers are a large black male Dire Wolf already dead and an equally large silver coloref female Warg. Between them are several different colored pups who are obviously their litter.
Some looked healthy some not so much is a single pup still alive nuzzling the mother and whimpering. It is coal black like the father but has the spotted pattern like the mother in a definite silver color making it resemble what he names it on the spot. "Night Sky" he kept it, nursed it to full heath, and raised it until one day it decided he was its new packmate and it would stay and keep its pack safe.
Can I make this work in D&D 5e, or do I need to stick with D&D 3.5e ?
With the information provided in this situation is this a workable character build for 5e? Or should I stick with 3.5 which is really all I have any experience with at this point. I ask because my little sister and brother in law are trying to wrangle me into a 5e game but I have absolutely no experience with this system and what is or isnt allowed anymore.
