D&D 

Deciding what to play for a D&D session, and er...
Is it okay that I want to just play a human fighter?
Just be a dude with a sword, a shield, and who just happens be there when the team sets off for an adventure...

Turns out fighters are super badass

Actually all of the classes are super badass

What's the "wrong place, wrong time" class in D&D?

@gaeel my friend rolled a folk hero fighter who'd actually never adventured before - he'd just made up all these badass stories about himself. Put all his stats into charisma. I couldn't have stood playing more than a session with the character in the party but it was great for a oneshot!

@gaeel probably the closest I've gotten to your "wrong place wrong time" archetype is Kevin the Tortle Wizarding Tech Support - his job is to go out and fix basic magical mishaps. He doesn't expect a lich to qualify as a "magical mishap" but
...whoops, guess he's an adventurer now!

@aszecsei
Ahahaha, that's actually really funny

Playing that character for multiple sessions you'd need to grow their character a bit, have them be confronted with their incompetence, maybe have to take responsibility for something bad happening, and then learning to actually live up to all the tales they've been spinning

@gaeel oh yes, it's entirely possible from a character perspective. The real downside was that his stats made him almost entirely useless in any combat encounters, which put some pressure on the group dynamic IRL.
