Rangers/Hunters. I mean, I've played plenty of them. I just haven't had the chance to play more of them.

But for real, there are a handful, a mix of 5e classes (since that's what my groups play) and roleplaying/background things. I haven't quite been the "forever GM" in my groups to this point, but it's been damn close. They're starting to realize I don't have the bandwidth to do that anymore, so both are mobilizing to have me not GM for a while.

In particular, I've had a dwarven bard rap artist modeled after the Beastie Boys in mind for a while. And a monk/wizard hybrid that's as close to Spider-Man as D&D will allow. Once those itches are scratched, I'll probably want to go running back to Rangers, my one true (class) love across multiple games and mediums.

I have a deep-seated mistrust of casters, harkening back to old-school video games where casters were perpetually underpowered. You can always run out of mana or spells (and usually did). It's far, far harder to run out of "smack you in the face with this warhammer/fist/etc." To this day, I don't really want to play casters, and even things like the monk/wizard multiclass I mentioned above are solely for RP purposes.

Having GM'ed a little and running through some OSR games, I've covered most of the spectrum, but I don't think I've truly role played anything in the Paladin/Cleric vein.

I've given myself the challenge of playing every core race and class for 5e, since that's my main game.

Something I'd really like to try is running an evil character. My main game/character, I'm running a gnome wizard who went from illusionist to being increasingly more necromantic (using the spellbook as the source of the darkness/originating point of the spells learned). It's been fun to play creepy, but well-intentioned. I'd like to jump fully into something dark and evil. Or super good. I guess I generally play very neutral characters...

I just realized that Rangers are the only 5e class I haven't GM'd for in a campaign (though Cleric only via multiclass). Don't they know that they'd instantly become my favorite and get all the best loot?!

Wow, good luck! That's a tall order for many, but would be fun to say you did it.

So many games, so little time.

There's all kinds of stuff I'd like to play, but haven't had a chance. I'd love to get into a good sci-fi military game and play a platoon commander. I'd love to play a merchant, either in a fantasy setting or in a Firefly-type small trader campaign. I've always wanted to do a kingdom-building game, kind of like the kind that you get into at higher levels of AD&D 1e and 2e, where you build a stronghold and start collecting taxes.

So much to do, and so little time to do it.

A sorcerer class in D&D or Dungeon World.
A detective, especially in A Dirty World.
A special agent in a pulp story
The Governor and in Durance
A swashbuckler

Added:


I forgot - Anthropomorphic animals (I always wanted to play The Secret of Nimmh)

I also just yesterday saw a 2 page rpg yesterday where you play familiars on a different plane when they disappear from the storyline (e.g. The Bag of Tricks in D&D 5e.)It sounds like the play "Rodencranz and Gildenstern are Dead" except with fantasy familiars...so esoteric and likely terrible with my typical group but sounds so awesome!

It could be awesome to play a game where all but one of the party have familiars and I play all of their familiars...

Self-aware cartoon characters...

Magician or hunter neaderthal in Wolf-packs and Winter Snow

Captain, Collector, Mechanic, Lantern, or Survivor in Dungeon World (from Inverse World)

An intrepid reporter in a supers or anime game

A rage mage. AKA Someone who's powers are emotionally powered and increase based on how truly pissed of they are.
I could see it having interesting role playing potential if done correctly, especially as characters are often annoyed, but rarely truly deeply pissed of to their core. The problem comes in balancing such a character and finding a suitable group/GM to put it in.

Honestly, a simple farmer type. My characters tend to have more complex, religion-influenced backstories that drive them to go out into the world and questions things, which is a reflection of how my own life developed. I want to play somebody simple with a very black and white sort of reason for being an adventurer.

I just recently played as a Fire Newt using a homebrew race found on reddit for 5e. Playing non-standard races is SUPER fun and lets you really pour on the flavor.

Me neither, at least in a campaign that last more than a couple of sessions. I've played mostly some flavor D&D. I've played a Cleric, a Thief, and Fighters, but not an MU.
