Critical Hit! Picking your Ideal Class in Dungeons and Dragons

How do you pick your class in D’n’D? When I created my first character, I thought about what he would be like first and then picked the race and class backwards.

Tons of Japanese Snacks and A Whole World of Cute!

So I don’t normally write posts about stuff I’ve bought because often, well, I don’t buy things in bulk for no reason in a “haul” fashion.
