I’m new to this, and I’m still looking for a group to play with, but I have it set in my mind that the first D&D character I’d like to play as is secretly animated armor.
Would this be possible and accepted? I’ve tried looking up information about animated armor but I can hardly find anything about it. I’m not talking about haunted armor, just enchanted armor with a will of its own.
Then if I’m allowed, how would I level my character?
In short these are my questions:
Am I allowed to play as Animated Armor?
And if “yes” how would I go about making such a character stronger?
I don’t have any particular D&D edition to choose from yet, as I have yet to find a group, but let’s just say the latest edition (5th) if we must pick one. But if this is more easily possible in a different edition, I would rather know that.
The only information I could find on Animated Armor is here.
