For the first time ever, I'm a PC in a campaign instead of a DM for it. I'm very excited but very inexperienced. I know little or nothing about the different types of races, let alone the classes, and this is making it difficult for me to choose something that I'd like!
The class role doesn't matter much to me, nor is raw power (though I'd like to be competent). What I'm more concerned with is picking a class with a great deal of options and active abilities. I would like to avoid a class that has one "best" ability that I'll spam forever or is mostly passive, offering flat buffs/debuffs without doing things. It's also a perk if the class has abilities that have multiple uses or can be used creatively.
Could you guys recommend a class to me with those things in mind?
I apologize if this question is in the wrong forum!
