@ChrisPerkinsDnD 2/2 Is there anything in the works to give game stats to icons of the D&D worlds such as Drizzt, Elminster, Raistlin, etc?

@gasolinemoth @ChrisPerkinsDnD 2/2 interpreted under the 'canon' rules. Drizzt is not a typical Ranger. Raistlin is not an average wizard.

Drizzt is really more of a fighter. https://t.co/u6zmQ1KZY8

@ChrisPerkinsDnD so he isn't a Ranger anymore, or was this artistic license to fit the story?

Although he's called a ranger in-world, he's not really a ranger in game terms. https://t.co/DDx4nrP6mZ

One thought on “Drizzt is not a Ranger”
This a good example that needs to explained better. Classes are not characters, classes are only mechanical description of a character capabilities. A rogue/ fighter might make a better ranger, than a ranger but lack spells that might not be in an Aragorn like character.
