    Founded over a thousand years ago, the kingdom of Cormyr benefits from an enligntened monarchy, hard-working citizens, and an advantageous location. Cormyr is a civilised land surrouded by mountains, forest, and settlements of evil humanoids. Known for its well-trained military and its active group of government-sanctioned spellcasters, Cormyr boast fine food, honest people, strange mysteries, and abundant contacts with other parts of the world.

    Recently challenged by treacherous noble families, armies of orcs and goblins, famine, a marauding ancient red dragon, and the death of its beloved monarch, Cormyr is now struggling to maintain it's holdings. With one of cities in ruin and great numbers of evil humanoids still roaming the countryside, this nation is in need of resourceful individuals willing to defend the crown and confront its enemies.

    Notable Figures

    General Cormyrean Laws
    Weapons: When entering any city or villiage all armed persons are required to report to the local Purple Dragon HQ or Sherriff's office, weapons larger than a dining knife will either be confiscated or peace bound for the duration of the stay. Patrols of Purple Dragons and War Wizards are a common sight throughtout Cormyr, anyone caught bearing arms will face stiff fines and possible imprisionment.
    Adventuring: All those wishing to 'adventure' within Cormyr must first registed their adventuring group with the local authorites, a Charter will then be issued to the adventuring group at a cost of 1000 gold lions, adventuring groups are required to notify the local authorities regarding any changes within their group. Also an annual fee of 300 gold lions is required to keep the Charter up-to-date. Those who's charter has expired are considered as actively opposed to Cormyrean law and the Crown, and will be dealt with accordingly.

    Charted adventuring companies are generally allowed to retain the arms and armour, as long as they remain on their best behaviour.

    Information on Eveningstar
    Eveningstar(Small Town, 954):
    Eveningstar is a crossroads settlement. It serves the nearby farms, a small number of craftsfolk who rely on the farmers goods, and the adventurers who travel this way. Lord Tessaril Winter is a quick and efficient ruler. The villiage maintains a temple to Lathader but is mainly known for its proximity to many ruins, notably the Haunted Halls of Eveningstar. The winged cats known as tressym are common in this area, making Eveningstar a popular place for anyone who would have one as a familiar.

    The six foot tall man that stands before you looks like a soldier from any army. His Armor and Weapon seem nothing more than hand-me-down army gear on first look. When you actually get a good look at his equipment you notice an ensign that you do not recognize. Whatever unit he was a part of must have been small maybe rogue but you don’t you know. The picture of a lone white wolf more abstract than realistic appears on his chest and shoulder. He is slender and looks quite agile for a human. His strong eyes and stern demeanor seem to contradict his otherwise jovial behavior. His brown hair is short almost buzzed, and his gray eyes seem to be taking everything in all at once. His cloak and boots are a dark-green, while his leather armor and even his bow are dark black.

    Joining the military at age 18 he trained to be a swordsman, but his abilities lied in other areas. Actually he couldn’t hit even the easiest of targets. It was on the Archery range that he excelled he seemed to be able to see farther and better than his fellow soldiers. So he was drafted into the scout core. He was trained as a scout for the next 2 years until he was ready. He went on many short recon missions very rarely entering combat. If anything he was asked to snipe targets, he was good at shooting on the run. He found that the standard equipment that he was given, the bow and the armor, seemed to be under-protective and under-effective in combat, so he had them reworked as he got enough funds to do so, against standard military orders. So as the missions went by he was better than he thought. Then during a mission when he was 21, something went wrong. He was caught by an enemy team, after a month of questioning and torture he was let go. His scars have never healed, not that anyone could ever see them but him. There is a scar that runs from the center of his chest to the bottom right corner of his stomach, in a c type pattern. Since his release he was taken back into the army’s folds but on more of a consolation basis until he could get over his fright of getting caught. He has been working for another captain since his return and he now, usually he runs recon missions about once a month, works as a mercenary for the city locals. (For working for the city he usually just takes housing and a few gold nothing more. They have since given him a small house on the out skirts of town, 2 rooms small. He does these favors to help the guard captain keep the monsters at bay, both human and animal alike.) He has worked with and teamed with many individuals over the years and usually can be found at the lake fishing during the day and the bar at night when he is not training. He usually sets up a bell about 300 yards from his fishing spot to signal their approach (DC 20 spot) but at the bar he is friendly but quick to defuse any trouble that may start brewing generally by buying a song and a drink (and maybe a few ladies if it will help the situation).

    He now works as a specialized scout leader for the military, but as such he is the first one to shot and hide. Due to his imprisonment he won’t leave a man in the field but he knows his talents lie in stealth and silence. So if he runs he is just looking for a good place to counterattack from. Because you don’t leave a man behind, you get him back at all costs.

    He is lawful in the effect that he will follow orders only if they do not contradict his strict moral code. Everyone deserves a chance at freedom, when you have had your freedoms revoked you try to give them to others. He also expects others to follow his orders especially as far as tactics are concerned. He doesn’t do anything to harm anyone unless they have shown hostility toward him. On the first hint of aggression he reacts with a swiftness that can not be matched.

    To qualify for Dread Commando
    1 Sudden strike 1d6, Team Initiative Bonus
    2 Armored ease 2
    3 Sudden Strike 2d6
    4 Armored ease 4, stealthy movement
    5 Sudden Strike 3d6

    Team Initiative Bonus – For every level of the class that you gain you get a competence bonus to initiative (+5 at fifth level) every ally who can see the dread commando (with in 30ft.) gains the bonus as well.

    Sudden strike – Essentially sneak attack but no way to do non-lethal to the flatfooted target

    Armored ease – Reduce armor check penalty by number given at the levels given

    Stealthy movement – No penalty for moving up to your full speed while hiding or moving silently, you only take a -10 penalty on these skills while charging or running instead of the normal -20


    Thodan was born in the small village of Orbesh, in the Fields of Nun. The youngest son of a poor farmer, his early life consisted of hard work and little in the way of luxury. At an age of ten, Thodan’s father gave him over to the priesthood of Tempus, hoping the boy would find a better life amongst the clergy.

    Thodan entered the clergy, and became an acolyte of the cleric Theodoric, a patriarch of Tempus who presided over an ancient Chessentan citadel turned shrine within the Chondalwood forest. Thodan served Theodoric for several years, performing his duties well, strengthening into a man and learning the ways of combat. And the something happened that changed all that. Theodoric received a visitor by the name of Lord Yrkhetep, and shortly after that visit began to act strangely. When the patriarch began to practice necromancy, raising the bodies of honorable warriors from their well-deserved sleep, Thodan prayed to Tempus for guidance.

    In what could only be described as a vision, the spirit of an ancient Chessentan numeri peditatae appeared to him, and warned him to flee the shrine. Explaining to him that his life was in danger, the spirit told him to travel north, that the Lord of Battles had need of him in the lands of the purple dragon.

    Believing the vision to be a message from his god, Thodan fled the shrine and traveled north to Hlath and then caught ship to Hlondeth. From there he traveled overland to Teziir, and then caught ship across The Dragonmere to the Cormyrian capital of Suzail.

    Thodan has now been in Cormyr for nearly a decade, trying to find what need the Lord of Battles has for him within this land. Although the young cleric still receives the occasional vision or dream hinting at his purpose within these lands, he still wanders somewhat aimlessly, helping those deserving warriors he finds along his way.

    Thodan’s most recent vision implored him to seek out the “the star of twilight.” Thus, he has traveled to the idyllic farming village of Eveningstar, hoping to find some clue as to his purpose in Cormyr.

    Thodan is a gruff, dour man, who lives to fight the next battle and do glory in the name of his god, Tempus. He takes his calling very seriously. He truly believes that Tempus is communicating with him through these visions and dreams that he has had, though so far the messages have been rather cryptic. He follows Tempus’ dogma strictly, and conducts himself honorably in battle. No stranger to the thrill of battles, Thodan is not one to back down from a fight, and is well neigh fearless in the face of danger.

    Thodan enjoys good food and strong drink, and tales and songs of combat and glory. While he works well with a group, he has been spent most of his recent past as something of a lone wolf. Thus, he is used to doing things for himself. While generally gruff and terse, he can be pleasant enough when one takes the time to get to know him. His lust for battle and adventure is impressive, and he can be very strong in his views.

    At 6’ 1” in height and 185 lbs, with a muscular build, Thodan looks the part of a veteran warrior rather than a priest. His hair is shoulder length, a tangled mess of greasy brown locks, and his face is covered with permanent stubble. His face has the rugged and weathered look of someone who spends most of their time in the sun and wind. Thodan’s eyes are a vibrant cobalt blue in color, and give him a presence that his otherwise average looks could not normally do.

    Thodan dresses in well-worn, comfortable clothing. Leathers and wools make up the bulk of what he wears, in subdued shades of brown, grey and green. Although his armor and weapons show the signs of heavy use, anyone familiar with warcraft would note that they are extremely well cared for.

    Targets: Two willing creatures of up to Large size
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    Two target creatures, of which you can be one, instantly swap positions. Both subjects must be within range.

    Effect: Ray
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    You must succeed on a ranged touch attack with the ray to strike a target. The energy of the ray stiffens the subject's muscles and joints, making it more difficult for the subject to move. The subject takes a penalty to Dexterity equal to 1d6+1 per two caster levels (maximum penalty 1d6+5, minimum Dexterity 1).



    Level: Sor/Wiz 2

    Targets: Two creatures of up to Large size
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    Two target creatures, of which you can be one, instantly swap positions. A solid object such as the ground, a bridge, or a rope must connect the creatures. Both subjects must be within range. Objects carried by the creatures (up to the creatures' maximum loads) go with them, but other creatures do not, even if they are carried. The movement is instantaneous and does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
    If either creature succeeds on its Will save, the spell is negated.



    Level: Drd 1, Sor/Wiz 2
    Components: V, S, M/DF
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Target: One allied creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
    Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

    The subject can immediately make one melee or ranged attack. Taking this action doesn't affect the subject's normal place in the initiative order. This is a single attack and follows the standard rules for attacking.
    This spell does not allow the subject to make more than one additional attack in a round. If the subject has already made an additional attack, due to a prior casting of this spell, from the haste spell, or from any other source, this spell fails.
    Arcane Material Component: A few scales from a snake.



    Level: Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3

    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    When you cast this spell, you negatively influence the randomness of fortune for the target. Whenever the affected creature undertakes an action involving random chance (specifically, whenever any die roll is made for the creature, including attack rolls, damage rolls, and saving throws), two separate rolls are made and the worse result applied.
    A creature carrying a stone of good luck is immune to the effect of unluck.
    Material Component: A piece of a broken mirror.



    Level: Drd 2, Sor/Wiz 3
    Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
    Targets: Allied creatures in a 20-ft.-radius burst

    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 60 ft.

    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    The bolt of sonic energy deals 1d4 points of sonic damage per caster level (maximum 10d4) to each creature within its area.

    Appearance and Personality:


    Thryd always looks rather bedraggled, even when her circumstances have been better. She has the dark golden skin and light blonde hair characteristic of her family (and has been known to punch any who suggests she resembles a drow), but her hair is generally haphazardly cut as if she had done it herself (which she usually does) and wind-tangled, and her skin is smudged with ink, dirt, and on occasion blood stains.
    Thryd is currently wearing a cobbled together set of clothing, consisting of heavy boots, a light tunic, and what look like harem pants. She takes a perverse pride in her appearance, and generally resists any attempts to change it.



    If asked, Thryd will blame inbreeding and the wind for her peculiar behavior, though always in a manner that suggests her response is at least half in jest. Inbreeding due to the fact that her family, having had to leave behind much of their wealth and all of their lands when they Retreated to Evermeet, took to marrying cousin to cousin (and on occasion even closer relations) to maintain their remaining fortune as well as their “noble blood”. The wind, because for as long as she can remember she has felt a wind blowing around and through her body, even when others inform her that the air is still.

    Despite her early erratic behavior, House Ornithalar was able to send its youngest scion to one of Evermeet’s wizarding schools, the traditional, rigid kind that required you to be able to recite your (pure) Elven heritage for at least 20 generations and little else. There Thryd took to magic like nothing else, learning the shape spells with such ease that some of her teachers grew suspicious that she had sorcerous powers. Thryd, however, realized that her talent came from the wind; she could feel her spells in it, and learned how to shape and push them to greater effectiveness and potency. Beginning to chafe under her instructors’ hidebound ways and growing tired of the whispers that she heard between them and the other students, one day she swiped a portal key and stepped through its portal, not even bothering to find out its destination. It dumped her on the edge of the Anauroch, and only her magic kept her alive. Since then, she’s gradually wandered south, into the more hospitable nation of Cormyr.

    Thryd, though always somewhat unbalanced, is neither delusional nor psychotic. Being on her own has forced her to learn how to pull herself together, so in dangerous or stressful situations she appears to be normal. Thryd has so far resisted any attempts from well-meaning clerics to assist her with her “condition”; she believes that it allows her to perceive the Weave and wield her magic more purely than anything else.

    It was not the most peaceful life, that Leonara lived. The wood elf was born into a small elven community living near the old Elven Court in Cormanthor, the former home of the elves on Faerûn. Most of her kin had long forsaken their ancient home during the Elven Retreat and travelled to other places, like Evermeet or Evereska, and only few remained. The peace inside the impressive forest was often disturbed. With most of the elven defenses broken or disabled, it fell to the last elven inhabitants of Cormanthor to fend for themselves. The drow had begun to secure a foothold from where they were raiding the weaker communities, they did not yet dare to come close to the old Elven Court, but that was just a matter of time. Orc and gnoll bands were roaming freely beneath the giant maple trees. But the former Elven Court was still the most secure place to be.
    Leonara has been trained in the ways of the forest, the language of the animals, and in the fine art of elven warcraft, swordplay and archery. The ranger also had learned about the strengths and weaknesses of the living dead, which were often found near the ruins of Myth Drannor, where countless adventurers and treasure hunters had perished in the past. She sometimes accompanied raiding parties, that set out for the ancient ruins, fending off the undead, to drive them back before they would become a problem. Whenever the Elven Court itself was in danger, she was also there to defend its borders against humanoid raiders with her bow. But all that lies the past now.
    A few years ago, Leonara left Cormanthor together with an elven warband, to venture out into the lands of man. The elves would not be able to stand against the constant attacks alone, and the human lands were also plagued by war as it was known. It was the decision of the leaders of their community, that they would go and aid the humans in their struggle in the hope, that they would come to the defense of Cormanthor in turn. So they set out, equipped with the finest arms and armors the elves had to spare. At Leonara's side was the elven hound Stalker, an impressive canine with a natural bond to the elven race and a distrust in all others. Only an elf could rear and train the cooshee, as they are called in the elven tongue. Stalker was Leonara's companion for some years already, found and trained as a pup, the long-lived hound accompanied the elf on hunt and raid alike since he was old enough.
    The elves travelled to the south-west, to Cormyr, where they fought against orcish and goblinoid war parties. In one of those battles Leonara was seperated from her companions together with a few human militiamen. She found out later after the attackers were defeated, that her troupe had been routed. Most of them were likely dead. A search revealed only few survivors, but most of the other elves remained missing. Many of the human survivors were headed back to the city of Eveningstar, where they would recover and lend their strength to the local authorities. Leonara accompanied them, it was as good a place as any other this far from her home, and the prospect of seeing the tressym, the winged cats common to that area the other soldiers had told her of, filled her elven heart with joy.

    Elf Ranger, Elven Hound and Elvencraft Bow:


    Hit Die: d6 (used for substitution levels only)
    Skill Points: 8+Int (Balance as additional class skill for substitution levels only)

    1st Elf Favored Enemy replaces Favored Enemy
    4th Elven Hound Companion

    Elf Favored Enemy (Ex): An elf ranger's favored enemy ability grants him a +2 bonus to Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Spot, and Survival checks used against creatures of the chosen type, and a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against such creatures. If the elf ranger chooses humanoid (orc), undead or "servants of Lolth" as his favored enemy, these bonuses rise to +3. "Servants of Lolth" includes drow, monstrous spiders of all sizes, and driders; this is an addition to the normal list of options for a ranger's favored enemy found on page 47 of the Player's Handbook.
    This substitution feature replaces the standard ranger's 1st-level favore enemy class feature.
    This substitution feature also affects the elf ranger's later improvements to his favored enemy ability. Each time an elf ranger gains a new favored enemy, he can increase the bonus for one favored enemy by 2, or 3 if he chooses to increase his bonus against orcs, undead or servants of Lolth.

    Elven Hound Companion (Ex): A 4th-level elf ranger can select an elven hound (see page 189) as his animal companion, even though the creature is a magical beast. For the purpose of any of the ranger's spells that affect animals, as well as his use of Handle Animal or wild empathy on the companion, the elven hound is treated as an animal.

    This odd-looking dog seems almost as big as a pony. It has a thick, greenish coat with large brown spots. It has exceedingly large feet with very long claws for a dog.

    The elven hound (called the cooshee in Elven) is a massive dog. It is most commonly found in the company of wood elves, who use it for both hunting and guard duties. Occasionally, high elves or gray elves will keep kennels of these dogs.
    An elven hound weighs more than 200 pounds and often stands as much as 2 feet high at the shoulders. Its huge paws house strong claws, which are curved to provide better traction in the soft loam of the forest lands. Its tail generally arcs over its back, but it hangs between the creature's legs when the hound is being scolded. Its ears point straight up, giving the creature an attentive, intelligent look. Cooshees are long-lived creatures, commonly reaching 100 years of age.


    An elven hound is a very effective fighting machine. It has a bone-crunching bite, capable of dropping an orc warrior. Elves say one elven hound is worth five orcs; that's an exaggeration, to be sure, but an elven hound is a ferocious combatant nevertheless, especially when attacking prey distracted by a hail of elven arrows.

    Resist Enchantment (Ex): Like their elf masters, elven hounds have a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against enchantment spells or effects.

    Sprint (Ex): Although an elven hound can go head to head with many creatures, its strength lies in the chase. Once per hour, an elven hound can move five times its normal speed (250 feet) when it makes a charge.

    Skills: Elven hounds have a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, Jump, and Swim checks, and a +2 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks. *Elven hounds have a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.


    Bow, Elvencraft: One of the biggest problems facing any archer is deciding what to do when a foe gets within melee reach. Does one stand fast and take the consequences (which can prove painful if not deadly), fall back (not always practical), or drop the bow and draw a melee weapon (inconvenient at best). Elf bowyers have made the choice somewhat less difficult by crafting bows that can stand up to melee combat. Thanks to elven ingenuity, these weapons work as well as melee weapons as they do as ranged weapons.
    An elvencraft bow is thicker and heavier than a normal bow. An elvencraft shortbow functions as a club when wielded as a melee weapon. An elvencraft longbow functions as a quarterstaff when wielded as a melee weapon. The wielder incurs no penalty on attack roll when using an elvencraft bow as a melee weapon.
    A character wielding an elvencraft bow can freely interchange melee and ranged attacks during the same round. When wielding an elvencraft bow, the user threatens the squares around him no matter how he last used the weapon.
    Magical enhancements to an elvencraft bow only affects its use as a bow. Enhancements to the melee capabilites of the weapon must be added seperately.
    An elvencraft bow costs 300 gp more than a normal bow.

    Appearance, Personality, Background:


    Appearance: Glandred is well muscled with bronze, almost red skin. Her hair is worn long and, like the downy growth upon her cheeks, is a fiery orange in colour. Her eyes are dark, almost black with pale orange pupils. She favours dark colours, particularly mauves, purples, reds, blues and deep oranges and yellows. She carries herself with a swaggering confidence gained through the knowledge that she seems to finally be in control of her own destiny.

    Personality: Glandred is a little confused. There seems to be large chunks of her memory that are missing. She doesn't have any idea what happened previous to the last year and she acts accordingly. She is a little paranoid, seeing a threat behind every shadow, she is cautious around strangers though always ready to take matters into her own hands. She is impatient and hates standing in ques or large crowds. If she trusts someone she trusts them implicitly, and can be easily led by such individuals.

    Background: Glandred literally translates as Forgotten or Lost Maiden (RoS 25). Glandred has no idea as to her past. She woke up just over a year ago high in the Storm Horns battered and bruised. She wandered for a couple of days before, half dead, she stumbled into Eagle Peak. She only had the possessions she wore and no money and so was forced to work for the human smith Belden for a year and a day in return for lodgings, a stipend and a little extra equipment once the tenure was over.

    Glandred proved to be a great asset to Belden and secretly he squirreled away a portion of the money he made from her wares. After the term of the contract was up Belden presented Glandred with a warhammer and her share of the takings from the year. Glandred, although moved to tears by the friendship of Belden, had resolved to depart as soon as she could so she could try and solve the mystery of her past.

    Glandred said her goodbyes to Belden not more than 3 weeks ago and has slowly made her way out of the Storm Horns and through Cormyr since. She has been in Eveningstar for only a week and is starting to run low on funds. She is reluctant to get a job at another smithy so soon after leaving her last job and so is looking for a more direct means to earn some money, and a chance to practice her martial skills.

    Note: She recalls her surname but not the signifigance of its meaning.

    Chik is a handsome fellow, with the well shaped face of a young man, framed in slightly wavy black hair that hangs down around his ears. Despite his good looks, he gives off a kind of menacing air that usually makes people somewhat uncomfortable around him. Chik wears a well made breastplate for protection, and the dagger worn at his hip is exposed for all to see.

    For anyone who has spent some time with Chik, it’s easy to tell that he is a man with the best of intentions, but who often looses his temper, resulting in fits of rage that often get him in trouble. His friendship is loyal, but hard to earn. Chik doesn’t talk about his past much, but given his emotional problems and the constant battle he seems to be fighting with some inner demon, it’s easy to see that there are some skeletons in the closet.

    Chick was abandoned by his father at a young age, and he grew up in an orphanage in Immersea until he was almost nine years old. Being a poor kid with lots of free time in a city of rich nobles, it didn’t take Chik long to develop into a mischievous child who often got into trouble for “acquiring” things that didn’t belong to him. Even though his life took the same form as many of the kids around him, Chik always felt a bit different. Most of the lessons they were taught buy the house-wives seemed to make sense to the other children, while Chik really had to struggle with things to make them make sense. For instance, everyone else seemed to understand that stealing was wrong, and while Chik had that intuition (in a very weak sense), he also had something inside him that told him there was no problem with doing things like that.

    If his other mischief wasn’t enough, Chik got into many fights during his younger years, mostly as a result of people picking on his name. Chik hated the name, but he couldn’t let it go for some reason and always refused to use nicknames. After all, it was the only connection he had to his past. One time when he was being harassed by another child who quickly ran to hide by locking himself behind the cellar door, Chik discovered something else about himself – he was able to wield some kind of magic. Not knowing what he was doing, he let the anger within him explode outward and actually destroyed the door in a flash of purple fire, leaving the child behind it scared, and the mistress of the orphanage too worried to keep such a liability around.

    And so it was that Chik, now only 12 years old, was abandoned to the world once again-only this time he didn’t mind. He spent a good deal of time traveling around Cormyr, grappling with the things he had been taught as a child and his innate nature that led him to do things that were often objectionable. After traveling for eight years and still carrying on this inner struggle, Chik is both closer to the truth and further away from it. He has accepted the rightness and wrongness of certain kinds of actions, and tries his best to lead a moral life, but he also finds joy in the chaos of life that often accompanies an absence of such morals.

    Chik is on his way to Eveningstar right now, hearing that there are ruins about that might be profitable to explore. He enjoys those kinds of jobs since he has some skill at carefully finding his way through dangerously trapped places, but right now he is hoping to find some company to travel with.

    If you want a further glimpse into the mind of this troubled young man, read on…

    Why in the nine hells would someone name their kid Chik? Aw, never mind that question, I’ve been askin it ever since I was a lad and kids used to make fun of me while I played with them. I suppose my father, whoever the bastard was, must have know that with a name like this, I’d either grow up tough or die trying, and anything in between wasn’t worth the trouble of givin me a proper name. He musta had a harsh view of the world, but I suppose I can’t fault him for that.

    Still, it bothers me on nights like this when I sit outside a tavern, bruised up and a couple of silvers short after a bad rumble inside. No real reason for it, but folks just can’t help but make a few jabs when they find out what my name is. Course I can’t help but smash their face in neither…but I suppose we all have our weaknesses. Sometimes I think mine aren’t just weaknesses though, but rather something deep down inside me, pullin my gut this way and that, tryin ta make me do stuff I know better than to.

    Strange thing is, it’s that same feeling in my gut that seems to give me the strange powers I have. Ever since I can remember, since my young days living at the orphanage, I always felt like something was different about me, and I knew it was true when I finally blew a hole in the wall on accident with some funny magical power. Memories like that don’t do much for me now. Best I can hope for is to keep on surviving, and god knows it’s a game of dice in this world.

    Well I may not have found as much drink as I would have like tonight, and I sure as hell missed my chance with that serving maid, but at least I left one of those fellows with a messed up face. I suppose this town's gonna be tired of me pretty soon, so I might as well start packing. If I remember right, there's a little town called Eveningstar right up the road a ways. Ya, that’s right, I heard there might be some exploring to do around the countryside while I’m there and a small town like that won’t have any trouble in store for someone like me…

    Nira Cytadell stands at about 5’7”, has brown skin with high almost elven like check bones and has rich honey colored oval eyes. Her long dark hair runs down to the middle of back, has a rich brown hue to it and is complimented with vibrant sandy streaks of blond running randomly though out it. Her shirt and trousers are simple and earth toned matched with a light dark green cloak to help protect her from the elements. She caries a small light satchel fitted comfortably over of her shoulder and under her cloak with her Savior’s Holy symbol tied loosely around her neck in a silk chain. The only noticeable means of protecting herself is a hand carved master worked bow that is either carried across her back or in her hand and a small beautifully carved dagger that is worn on her left hip.

    Greenbound Summoning Template

    Greenbound Creature
    In the crumbling Siluvanedenn ruins of Telardon, powerful and ancient magical energies seep from an unknown number of buried arcane treasures. These energies transform hapless creatures near by into plantlike beings of great strength. A greenbound creature looks much like it did before transformation, although certain changes are apparent. The creature's flesh has been replaced by pulpy wood and thickly corded creepers, and tiny branches stick out from its torso, arms, and legs. Any feathers, hair, or fur is once had have been replaced by some combination of green vines, moss, and leaves. Greenbound Creatures speak any languages they knew before transformation, although their voices are now deep and gravelly.

    "Greenbound Creature" is an acquired template that can be added to any animal, fey, giant, humanoid, monstrous humanoid, or vermin (hereafter referred to as the base creature). A greenbound creature uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities expect as noted here:

    Size and Type: The creatures type changes to plant with the appropriate augmented subtype. Do not recalculate base attack bonus, base saves, or skill points. Size is unchanged.
    Hit Dice: change all current Hit Dice to d8's.
    Armor Class: A greenbound creature's natural armor bonus improves by 6 over that of the base creature.
    Attack: A greenbound creature retains all the attacks of the base creature and also gains a slam attack if it didn't have one. If the base creature can use weapons, the greenbound creature retains this ability. A greenbound creature fighting without weapons uses either its slam attack or its primary natural weapon (if it has any). A greenbound creature armed with a weapon uses either its slam attack or a weapon, as it desires.
    Full Attack: A greenbound creature has a slam attack. If the base creature does not have this attack form, use the appropriate damage value from the table below according to the greenbound creature's size. A creature that has other kinds of natural weapons retains its old damage or uses the appropriate, value from the table below.

    Size______________Base Damage

    Special Attacks: A greenbound creature retains all the special attacks of the base creature and gains those described below:
    Spell-Like Abilities: At will--entangle, pass without trace, speak with plants; 1/day--wall of thorns. Caster level equals greenbound creature's character level; save DC 10 + spell level + greenbound creature's Charisma modifier.
    Special Qualities: A greenbound creature retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains those descripted below:
    Damage Reduction (Ex): A greenbound creature has damage reduction 10/magic and slashing. A greenbound creature's natural weapons are treated as magical weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
    Fast Healing (Ex): A greenbound creature heals 3 points of damage each round so long as it has at least 1 hit point. If reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, It is slain.
    Grapple Bonus (Ex): The thorny hooks on a greenbound creature's hand and feats grant it a +4 bonus on grapple checks.
    Resistance to Cold and Electicity (Ex): A greenbound creature gains resistance 10 to cold and electricity.
    Tremorsense (Ex): Greenbound creatures can automatically sense the location of anything within 60 feet that is in contact with the ground.
    Abilities: Increase from the Base creature as following: Str +6, Dex +2, Con +4, Cha +4.
    Skills: *A greenbound creature gains a +16 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks made in forested areas.
    Environment: Any forests.
    Organizitation: Same as the base creature.
    Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +2.
    Treasure: Standard.
    Alignment: Same as the base creature.
    Advancement: By character class or as base creature.
    Level Adjustment: Same as the base creature +8.

    Ability Descriptions
    Bardic Knowledge: Green Whisperer levels stack with bards in determining max
    bonus, but only when making checks that have something involving plants, animals, the elements, or items associated with these topics.
    Bardic Music: Green Whisperer levels stack with bards in determining abilities,
    duration and so on.
    Spells Per Day: Green Whisperer levels stack with bards and druids in
    determining the amount of spells known and spells per day. They gain additional spells as if they gained a level in each class but gain no other abilities from the druid class.
    Song of the Heart: Increases the effects of all bardic 'Inspire' songs by +1.
    Soothe The Savage Beast: Animals & Magical beasts suffer a -2 to saves against
    Fascinate, suggestion, and mass suggestion.
    Music of Growth: You grant a +4 enhancement bonus to Str & Con scores of
    every creature of the animal or plant type within 30ft. Counts as a daily use of bardic
    Green Ear: Mind affecting bardic music abilities effects creatures of the plant

    Also for those wondering if the current adventure is too hard, bear in mind if you had entered the tree house you would only be facing one or two foes at a time, also Chik could have chosen to withdraw instead of choicing to be harpy bait.

    Having said that things are bound to change once Nira uses her countersong ability.

    You haven't post for a while, so let me know if you're still interested in playing this game, otherwise I'll look at recruiting someone else.

    Did Leonara become captivated before the harpies emerged from the tree?

    Otherwise, she would have fired an arrow (readied action IIRC) at the first coming out of the cover.

    Ya, I hope people don't mind that too much. I knew full-well he wasn't making the best tactical decision, but sometimes Chik's urge to fight gets the better of him. Meta-game wise, I was also hoping to hear that countersong again...

    In any case, I have a feeling our greenbound friends will be a great help when they arrive and we might even make it through this alive!
