Mostly this post is inspired by a kickstarter I saw for a D&D setting called Warrior Princesses in the Realm of Everafter. I missed the kickstarter, but I hope he is going to sell them publicly soon. I think this would be a great way to introduce my nieces into D&D.
But then, I thought, we could probably introduce elements of Disney into D&D. You may think this is a silly idea, but really, there are some fun character possibilities here. Especially if you go with the versions that have appeared on Once Upon a Time.
So, besides the fact that Warrior Princess should totally be a D&D class, here are some fun ideas for Disney inspired D&D characters:
Tarzan – Barbarian, Totem Warrior: Ape
True, the Disney Tarzan isn’t exactly a berserk type of fighter, but if any of his loved ones were in danger he would throw himself into the fray in their defense.
Hercules – Cleric, Tempest Domain
He could channel his father’s storm powers, while striving to be the wise hero he knows he can be.
Pocahontas – Druid, Circle of the Moon
She was a fierce protector of the wilds and of nature, and if she had had the chance to become a wolf, pretty sure she would have taken it.
Mulan – Monk, Way of the Open Hand
Either from the cartoon or from Once Upon a Time, this girl is very clearly warrior material, but would totally understand the way of ki.
Merida – Ranger, Beast Master
I think she might have been built on a ranger template. Really.
Flynn Rider – Rogue, Thief
Bonus points if you get to fight with a frying pan.
Elsa – Wild Magic Sorcerer
She would also have an elemental companion that looks like a snowman.
I’m going to be playing an Elsa like character in an upcoming campaign. I’m hoping it comes across as fun as I think it will. I will let you know.
