Ghostbusters as D&D Characters

I'm kludging up a 5E system bash to migrate my Ghostbusters game over to, since we keep forgetting the rules in Savage Worlds and 5E is rules-light enough that it will work well. But that led me to mentally map the Ghostbusters to their D&D archetypal equivalents. Whattya think of...

  • Peter Venkman: Half-elf Bard. Cutting remarks one minute, rousing speeches that inspire the team the next, jack of all trades but master of none. Not exactly the brains of the outfit, but the one they all look to when action is needed. Doubles as a rogue when required.

  • Ray Stantz: Halfling Cleric. The affable team player who's always got your back and is ready with a comforting word. Has lots of ranks in Religion and can figure out what's going on, if not what to do about it. Ironically, Wisdom is his dump stat but luck and lovability pull him through.

  • Egon Spengler: Elf Wizard. Pretty obvious.

  • Winston Zeddemore: Human Fighter. The dependable working joe who'll get the job done, but isn't the one being brilliant or showy.

I think it's a pretty good correlation, actually. :)

I love Babs like whoa, but she and I have very differing views on the nature of Peter Venkman. ;)
