The other day i was thinking how cool it would be for a dnd party of 4 to based off the four horsemen of the apocalypse
they could be tasked with either destroying the world or different civilizations, they wouldn't even have to be evil because they could destroy evil worlds/civilations
This would put some limits on what classes the players could use so it may only be good for a one shot or a quick series of adventures.
Here is what i was thinking class wise for each horsemen
War: Fighter, Barbarian, or Warlord
Famine: Druid or Shaman
Pestilince: Invoker or Warlock
Death: Assassin or Warlock possible Wizard or Sorcerer
Okay so War is fairly obvious, Barbarians would be the wild side of war where as a Warlord could be more tactical and Fighter could easilly be either one.
Famine is a bit more difficult but since Druids and Shamans have nature powers I could easily see them wither crops, ruin livestock, and poison food
Pestilince is a little easier, since Invoker and Warlocks both have powers that simulate plagues and curses that could be similiar to Pestilince
Death could really be anyone since every class has options to kill people, but Assassin and Warlock have a lot of dark powers, Wizard and Sorcerer I could also see because of their wide amount of AoE powers they can take out a lot of people at once
I also think Bard could be a good option for any horsemen because they could easily be messengers of destruction, It would also be a good option for a fifth party member as like a herald of apocolypse
Anyway, I think this would be a really fun party concept or adventure to try, It would take a lot of party planning so that all the roles would be filled out, and Im not sure what to do for parties too small or consiberably larger.
It would be great to hear what you guys think especially the different class options for each horsemen, otherwise i think this has a lot of potential
