Alright, so as the title says, I'mma run a game for my sister tomorrow. This will be her first time playing, and she's actually pretty excited. I asked her to describe her character, and she said, "She's a pretty adventerous girl, and she's an archer like I would be.". I also asked her how she fought, and her response was, "She can be pretty tricksy, but also very deadly when she has to be."
That being said, I statted up the following character. My sister's an incredibly smart girl, but I also don't want to overload her with new information so I tried to pick the simplest to understand powers, whilest still being fun. I opted out of a theme and backround just because there'll be plenty for her to learn as it is. Magic items were picked arbitrarily and probably won't even come into play. And the reason I built it for her instead of letting her do so is because I only have a couple of hours with her tomorrow and want to make the most of the time. Unfortunately the only other player will be my girlfriend, most likely playing some sort of tanky leader or something. Cleric, Paladin, Artificer, etc. So it'll just be two people, maybe 3 if I decide to run a DMPC so I can keep things from dogpiling the archer. Anyway, I digress. The character:

As I said before, do you think this will be too complicated for her, or do you think she'll be able to grasp it with a little handholding?
