    Do what I did my first time. Halfing Fighter. BTW you can guess how well that worked out.

    Bards are great my partner has a Drow Bard he gets up to all kinds of trouble impersonating people and forging documents, we still haven't gotten into combat (about 12 hrs in) because he weasles his way out of everything.

    I was thinking I'd try to play as "non traditional" as I could and specializing in fencing and dueling instead of songs and stories. Because, frankly, my character couldn't sing, and fencing is very elegant and beautiful. Just a thought. Not sure how I'd distribute points or anything though.

    College of Swords Bards are a thing. X'D... If you want to be Non-Traditional, Variant Human Sorcerer/Wizard with Weapon Master and Martial Weapons. It's everything but traditional.

    We're playing 5E with no supplemental material ^_^ All I got is the PHB to go with, ha ha. Aside from not knowing how to make my character's personality yet or how I'm going to play him, it's going to be fun to see how a guy who has never told stories in his whole life DM's a game for the first time. :D And he wanted to do it after only a week of planning.

    Well, that sucks if you're only using the Player's Handbook... All of the Supplemental Material is great, especially Xanathar's Guide to Everything. (I might be overusing it in my campaign, but screw the rules, I have Xanathar. X'D...)

    All I can suggest then is, do what feels natural to you. Especially if it is to play your instrument. X'D
