Guardians of the Galaxy – D&D 5e Character Builds

Guardians of the Galaxy grossed $774 million worldwide at the box office, a sequel is on the way in 2017 and they even have a cartoon series on Disney XD. While Guardians of the Galaxy takes place in a science fiction setting, this crew of rogues and misfits figuring out how to work together to save the galaxy, felt like a great RPG campaign unfolding. Trying to create super hero player characters for D&D has its flaws (but they’re still fun to build like these Avengers). Quill and his crew have few traditional “super” powers and are actually much closer to a bunch of mid level D&D characters running around creating trouble before saving the day. Don’t forget magic is just advanced technology in the Marvel cinematic universe, so bring on the magic in a sci-fi setting too.

This week on the Campaign Trail I thought I’d offer DMs some premade characters to use or for players to look at for ideas when creating their next PC.
