At the moment there are 5 of us that will be playing this campaign, and it's only the first time playing for one of us.
The party at the moment is:
Bard (College of Lore) - Me
Rogue (Arcane Trickster)
Sorcerer (A homebrew that will effectively turn him into an earth bender)
Ranger (Hunter) - First timer.
I know that I'm the obvious choice to be the party healer, but honestly, I'm tired of it. In the last couple of campaigns we've played I've been both Druids and Clerics, and I want to experience something else. It's the ranger's first time playing, and I'm happy for him to play as a ranger (because all of us have pretty low wisdom otherwise). The order above is also the order that we decided our characters in.
We're playing Strahd by the way.
My questions are:
Are we all going to die quickly?
Do you consider this party in any way balanced?
