Every time I'm asked to make a character, I make 12.

You can roll a d12 to figure out which character to use.
You could play a Barbarian Leonin
Get out of here brain.
Or a Way of Mercy Human who makes herbal tea with the chef feat
Then multiclass into a Draconic Sorcerer and become Uncle Iroh.
Would Iroh be a fire focused 4 elements monk?
I guess but Iroh doesn't suck so might not work
I think monk/sorcerer multiclass make for better Avatar benders than the 4 elements monk. If the character is like Toph who doesn't really go hand to hand unlike Zuko or Aang, I think a full sorcerer would work better.
I feel called out
But see me already making a character for strixhaven 4 months before it's even released let alone before my group decides to play it
Play a DM, then you can play all the characters you want
Creating npcs and pcs is very different. When building npcs you're thinking about balance and ease of use, but the possibilities are almost limitless. When building pcs, you have a limited mechanical frame to work with and you're mostly thinking about whats fun to play. I love making both types, but one definitely doesn't replace the other.
I actually do like to DM more than I like to play a PC, but that's mostly an actively playing thing. I don't use PC stuff for NPCs because I find the idea of a DM PC to be... Really cringe.
Actually that horizon walker idea is brilliant, cheers for that
Me but with campaign ideas: we got fantasy Ireland, Ebberon Steel Ball Run, and 4 Ravenloft Domains (Hazlan, Kartakass, Valachan, and Bluetspur
The theorycrafting has always been the best part.
You have to be asked to make a (dozen) character(s)?
You could play a Wizard Tortle
Lizardfolk Barbarian/Druid. Don't need anything else
