Page 3 Daishain’s 5e D&D RPG Character Creation The Sage says...
@Thomaslee and Brandonfett, The system is versatile enough that an Arcane Trickster has a fair amount to gain by tacking on a few levels of Wizard. And a Wizard has a fair amount to gain by tacking on a few levels of Rogue. The penalty for multiclassing a caster is not nearly as harsh in this edition.
I do suggest using some caution in that regard, how had you planned this setup?
As for the cantrip, are you talking about the "Bonus Magical Ability" I mentioned? That is for anyone who wants the extra flavor, both magic users and mundane, but to be clear, it is only an extra cantrip in the sense of it being an at will ability. It should deliberately be quite weak compared to the cantrip choices normally available.
@Falrun and anyone else locked out of character edits, you should all be aware that they made editing difficult with the recent system. When ready for review, please post character details in here so I can take a look prior to activating the character.
