Controller & Leader

When you are playing with less than four players, your party obviously cannot cover all character roles. If you have three players, you can refer to Chapter 1 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide for some advice on how to cope with that. If you play with only two players, there are six possible combinations of roles.

Your party could for example consist of a Controller and a Leader. As you have no Defender, the Leader has to protect the Controller. So you might want to choose a Leader with Defender as his secondary role. Additionally you should make sure that the Controller himself is not too vulnerable, for example by choosing a class, which grants many hitpoints.
So what about the combination of a Seeker and a Shaman? What do you think?
And what about the other five possible combinations of roles? If you have any suggestions, feel free to discuss them in the comments.

This is a first sketch of a part of the guide to playing D&D with only two or three players, that I’m currently working on. Please tell me what you think about it in the comments.
