Earlier in the week we bought some new furniture and had it delivered. While the delivery guy was here, he noticed our D&D books and it turns out he was also a gamer. We got to talking about games for a while when he said that he'd been looking for years for a game where someone would let him be a dragon, but no one would do it.
It got me wondering what other types of characters are out there that people would like to play, but for whatever reason can't find a game - or don't have one available at the moment - to do it in.
So what character do you want to play but can't?
I'm honestly not sure what my own answer to this would be. I mean, on one hand: I want to play everything, and I'm not in enough games to do that. On the other hand, I've never had super strong feelings about types of characters I want to play that I haven't been able to fulfill. I've never had a particularly strong desire to be a dragon, or some other monster race in a game. I am generally happy to build in the confines of the game, because what I am looking for is the game itself.
Still, I am curious about others. What would you like to play? Why can't you?
