We’re all about to get a superb stretch on the rack as a result of our favourite Addams uncle is becoming a member of us on our subsequent journey.
The brand new Netflix collection, Wednesday, received a lot proper about the Addams household. Together with Wednesday’s (and our) favourite Addams uncle, Fester. And also you all know the drill by now. Generally after we love a personality, we work out find out how to add them to our subsequent D&D journey to allow them to get in on the enjoyable too. So this week we’re enjoying D&D with…
Uncle Fester is a grade-A weirdo, even by Addams requirements. Which is an efficient factor. Who and what he offers us a lot freedom to essentially have enjoyable with a personality sheet that may not be preferrred for many video games, however offers us the chance to dip into some pots we don’t normally go close to.
For instance, Human Revenant is an ideal race for Fester. He’s human…. type of. However he’s additionally very near being one thing else and he’s nigh unkillable. The man performs with explosives and electrical energy for enjoyable. Human Revenant offers him the flexibility to get knocked out, go down, and are available again later as if nothing occurred. Plus it’s a simple and efficient strategy to write off his odd look inside the narrative of your journey.
For his class I needed to do some extra buying round. Uncle Fester looks as if he can be a stable selection for warlock, however after I seemed via the subclass choices, nothing actually caught out for him. Warlockery appeared too severe and typically in service of their patron. Fester doesn’t serve something however chaos and no matter will make his relations completely satisfied. Which is commonly additionally fairly chaotic.
I even thought of having him duel class to maintain the warlock choices open, however ultimately, I made a decision that Uncle Fester must be a one-hundred-percent enjoyable type of character and made him an Arcane Trickster Rogue.
This works on a couple of ranges for me. Gomez might be a minimum of partially a rogue of some variety along with his roguish and swashbuckling tendencies, so it will make sense for the 2 brothers to be two very completely different features of the widespread class. Arcane Trickster additionally lets us lean into Fester as a goofy and fun-loving uncle who’s at all times keen to goof round along with his niece and nephew.
In contrast to most roguish archetypes, Arcane Trickster comes with a couple of spell slots. I principally spent these on spells that might remind us of Uncle Fester’s relationship with electrical energy via thunder and lightning, or simply in any other case felt enjoyable and possibly just a little spooky.

Lastly, one among my greatest objectives with Fester was to make a personality who simply will get more durable and more durable to kill. His Revenant standing permits him to come back again from the lifeless (type of), he has an absurdly excessive structure, and I gave him feats that might enable him to have extra HP, or stroll away from assaults with a fortunate reroll.
