    stonegod's Expedition to Castle Ravenloft [Old RG]

    The dwarf was impeccably dressed, with a tasteful display of wealth and prosperity. A Kundarak scion, which made his delivery of a package all the more strange. That was the providence of House Orien. The dwarves were master of security, would not deign to be brought to the level of a hired courier. But, nevertheless, there he was, battered silver box in hand, a wax seal with a glowing sigil of a flaming crown warding the seam.

    Patting the intricately engraved box lightly, the dwarf looks at you sternly, its manner business-like. "Our patron made it clear that this box be delivered securely and personally to your persons. Its sanctity is sacrosanct; thus, it can only be opened in our presence. In addition, we are to verify that its contents have not been observed, intercepted, or otherwise modified upon receipt. As you are the recipients indicated, let us finish this business."

    With that, the dwarf hands the box over to you. It feels icy cold to the touch, and you feel an involuntarily shiver. Who sent it, and why?

    That would have to wait for the opening.

    Character Creation
    Characters will be created using a 32 pt. point-buy for characters at 6th level. Hit points are max at first level, then alternating low-high average. The following sources are allowed: Core, the XPH, the Complete Series (including Psionics and Mage), the PHBII, the DMGII, all Eberron books, and Heroes of Horror. Please use the character sheet provided on the Rogue's Gallery thread. Also include your concept description of your character: Provide a background, primary role, quirks, and distinguishing abilities your character possesses (and justification for them/how they play to your concept). Character start with default gold for their level (13,000 gp at 6th) with no more than half of that gold spent on one item. No more than 200 gp may be left at the end of character creation (spend it or loose it!).

    Appearance
    Janis ir'Sandal is a tall, pale and ethereal looking woman just shy of being pretty, but with a face that instead most people would gracefully call "interesting". Her stark white hair would not be out of place on an albino, but is instead a novelty of her heritage and family. Janis is thin to the point of being painful-looking, and for that reason she favors clothes which obstruct that fact somewhat. To make her thin frame and hair even more plain, she maintains a permanent hidden smile that sits under a prominent nose and large, luminous green eyes. While always looking somewhat distant and mad-looking, Janis' eyes are liquid and clear emerald pools that occasionally spark with arcs of cyan electricity. Despite her frail appearance, anyone with any sense can tell that Janis is as tough as nails and doesn't blow over in a rough wind.

    Background

    The Sandal family was long a member of the political opposition party of the House of Wyngarn in Cyre, fostering dissidents and socially progressive legislature over the years that always seemed to be just a few years too soon for the adoption by the crown. As such it maintained much support among the common people of Cyre even through the war, and that and its notoriety in the arts and arcane research did much to blunt any possibility of real reprisal from the crown. So entrenched in Cyran politics were the Sandal family that they began to conceive of a rather more expansive interpretation of their "duties" and very discretely began to plot against the crown in rebellion.

    Unfortunately for them, the Sandal plots were discovered by Cyran agents and instead of a more severe punishment, many chose to enlist to serve in the Cyran army, to casually venture to far away provinces of the world such as Xen'drik, and in Janis ir'Sandal's case to work her way across the borders into Breland where she arrived only a few months before the Day of Mourning.

    Janis spent her requisite days of shock and horror along with the rest of the Cyran expatriates, and then she began to compensate. Janis decided that her most worthy goal was to remake a Cyre such as Cyre always was to her, but her political inclinations and upbringing couldn't bring her to participate in the machinations of Prince Oargev in Breland fully, a fact which she voiced to the wrong people at the wrong time. This proved to be a mistake, and Janis found herself once again fleeing the reach of House Wyngarn, this time to parts unknown. These days she's much more reticent about voicing her opinions on Cyre and the world in general, simply as a measure of self-defense.

    After spending many long years studying in the reserved and dubiously social high society scene of Cyre's more prestigious private schools and in the presence of several tutors of distinction, Janis began studying magic from the standpoint of the natural, and unnaturally natural, order itself. As such, her studies have pushed her more and more into a deeper understanding and philosophical empathy with certain druidic sects and teachings.

    Primary Role/Distinguishing Abilities
    Janis is a blaster thanks to her magic items and Reserve feats, with some significant options from her Druid levels inside and outside of combat.

    Quirks

    To most people, Janis seems to be a somewhat mousy, unattractively thin woman with a talent for magic. This is indeed the case. Janis is more comfortable with books and the dissection of strange new creatures than with people. Still Janis deeply desires the ability to be one of the charismatic people that she so admires. Added to that fact is that Janis has an incredibly high opinion of her own intelligence and basic value, sometimes in the past she has felt a sense of entitlement beyond her actions. Now older, Janis' dark inclinations have been mellowed into a deep and abiding cynicism.

    Janis likes to maintain a cloak of mystery about herself almost as a matter of course. She will talk about Cyre because a Cyran who won't talk about Cyre might provoke interest, but she reveals little else about herself if she can help it. Deeply wounded by more than the Day of Mourning, Janis clings to nihilism as an answer. After all, if it ends (and it all will), it will end badly. Better to be prepared for the worst, and protect others as best you can - even if you don't won't let anyone close to you, even if there are few people worthy of protecting.

    Tactics:
    Janis enters combat under the guise of mirror image if at all possible and tends to utilize her Storm Bolt reserve feat and Lightning Gauntlets more than actually casting greater magics.

    Background - I belong to the Ghaash'kala, and I owe them my life. I was raised by them since I was five years of age. I love our sar'malaan Gan'dal Homm, and I respect our kizshmit Svash Ramaal. I learned all they had to teach me when my mother brought me out of the Demon Wastes, and I know all I know of honor by the hands of the Jaasakah tribe.

    Yet each breath I draw now spits upon all they stand for. I dishonor them each day I live. Even so, I feel I must, and yet I curse my own weakness that led me to choose life over honorable death at the hands of my tribe. I was only thirteen when I began to show the signs of sakah; those touched by the rakshasa rajahs. My mother was fair, my dead father similar, so she said. I bore hair of fire-red, an unnatural shade the color of dancing flames that never graced a human head before. Powers began to flow through me, giving me power at my very fingertips. Dark arrows of light, shadowed essence that gave me a silver tongue, fell magic that let me see in the deepest darkness...

    This was not the power of dragon magic, or magic wrought through words or runes, nor was it the clean power of Kalok Shash, the cleansing flame. Gan'dal Homm told me my power rose from the rakshasas themselves, and that I had been chosen to be their agent of darkness. I cried when my fate was foretold. My mother did not live out the night after the news. I spent the night huddled in a pit, bound hand and foot, awaiting the dawn for the death it would bring me. But something with me rebelled. A white-furred rat came and gnawed through my bonds, urging me in my mind to flee my tribe before my blood was spilled. Crying, I took my new companion with me and fled into the night, my own dark powers protecting me.

    My own cowardice has protected me from death at the hands of my adopted family. And their own teachings have led me to protect the lives of many more. Somehow I am determined to honor them as well as I can. I may be a pawn of the rakshasas, but I will do nothing but good with my powers, no matter what comes.

    When I left the Demon Wastes, I ran straight into the Last War. But luck, or Kalok Shash's favor, was still with me, and I found myself in the holy land of Thrane. Here Kalok Shash's other face, the Silver Flame, illuminated me within. Though I was stranger than snake feet to them, the Silver Flame could find no evil in my heart, and no harm in my thoughts. With great reluctance, I was sent to prove myself against the undead hoards of Karrnath.

    Here was a place where my dark powers could be put to good use. While they destroyed, they also cleansed, and I felt as if I were doing real good for the first time in my life. Many years I battled against Karrnath for Thrane, and even those who cared not for me in the beginning began to offer me bits of kindness. I gathered scars of the mind and of the skin, and yet I could not stop in the face of such overwhelming force... or my own determination to prove my own worth.

    The Treaty of Thronehold was hard on many warriors, for how could they rest when the armies that had committed such atrocities still ran at large? Yet the destruction of fair Cyre, and the creation of the Mournland, was enough to cool the bloodlust of even the heartiest. I have drifted as I may in these last two years, seeking employment with others of Thrane to clear pockets of rogue undead and foul demon-spawn. Yet now with no greater cause before me, I wonder and fear if the rajahs might try to reclaim their pawn...

    Primary Role/Distinguishing Abilities - Party face and blaster. I intend to take Beguiling Influence and Eldritch Spear, as well as Devil's Sight and Darkness, eventually. He would also take Obtain Familiar as a feat, and Touch of Deception (PGtE pg. 35) to represent his tainted heritage. I would have him be human, but obviously a little bit not human as well.

    Quirks - I see Maraat as having a silver tongue that he is not always entirely comfortable with. He was raised to consider the powers that he developed to be demon-touched abominations. While he knows he can help change people's attitudes for the better, he tends to agonize over the ethics of them. He was also raised a barbarian, then spent the next several years in a military theocracy. He doesn't do "frivolous" entertainment, and has several odd customs he goes through daily in an attempt to "purify" himself.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Background: Jarrith Bronns was taught vehemently since birth what the Church of the Silver Flame was good for and why it was needed, because both of his parents learned first-hand of the evil in the world. Martin and Milla Bronns were both victims of the scourge of the dopplegangers, as the village they grew up in within Aundair became infested with the fiends, and both sets of their parents were replaced by doppleganger duplicates. It was only through the grace of the Flame itself that templars finally arrived to eradicate the evil from within the village, and Martin and Milla (both sixteen at the time) clung to each other in their grief. This eventually led to love... both for each other, and for the precepts of what the Church of the Silver Flame taught. They moved to Thrane and became staunch proponents of the teachings... raising their young son Jarrith within the faith.

    However, they perhaps taught him a little TOO well, since he grew up more unbending than many others around him. He was an intense, stringent, exceedingly fervent young man, whose entire life became nothing but service to the Flame. The goodness within him was obvious... and his desires to destroy all evil in the world was plain... but it seemed that he was not above fighting fire with fire so-to-speak, especially when he took his vows as a templar. His will to serve Church, parents, and Khorvaire was absolute, but it made for a not-quite-so pure young man. And it was this man that was found by the Order of Illumination-- a wing of the Church a bit more orthodox than many others. They were always looking for young men and women who would fight evil regardless of the cost. If they had to damn themselves in order to save the rest of the flock, then so be it. And when inducted, Jarrith fit into their ranks like a hand in a glove.

    Bronns has now spent the last seven years fighting the evil of the world by walking along it's fine edge. A master of stealth and agility, he is always called upon to infiltrate places where evil has gotten hold, and open it up for others of the faith to make their way in. He dances lithely on the edge, knowing full-well that one false step and his plunges irrevocably into the darkness. Upon his indoctrination into the Order, the Flame elders paired him with another initiate named Sir Khensu Feral, a shifter of great strength. At first Jarrith was annoyed with the notion that someone was being sent to "watch his back", but over time he has come to love Sir Khensu like the brother he never had. They both have the utmost respect for each other and their devotion to the Flame, and while Sir Khensu helps Jarrith stay within the light, Jarrith helps Sir Khensu keep his feral nature in check. The two have become inseperable, and you'll more often than not find them both flanking some creature of evil, all in the name of the Keeper Of The Flame. Jarrith would gladly give his life to protect Sir Khensu, and this is why they both wear a slim platinum band on the ring finger of their right hand. When Jarrith knows Sir Khensu is going into a situation where death is a real possibility, he will gladly cast a Shield Other spell upon him in order to take on some of the pain his brother will endure.

    In addition to his devotion to his Lumin Brother, Jarrith has met and worked with a number of other people. Probably most often he has fought next to Marot The Deadly... a human touched by the demons below the earth. Jarrith actually appreciates and accepts Marot probably more than other devout members of the Church Of The Silver Flame do, because the constant battle Marot fights to stay out of the darkness each day is something that Jarrith knows well. The difference between the two of them of course is that Jarrith is just fighting a moral battle, whereas Marot has to fight against his very nature (something that Jarrith also experiences with Sir Khensu all the time). Although Marot is not a member of the Order Of Illumination directly (because it is a religious order within the Church you have to join), Jarrith treats the Flame-worshipping Marot as much like a Lumin Brother as anyone. He sees the three of them as an unstoppable force in the pursuit of lightness... Jarrith's stealth, Sir Khensu's strength, and Marot's eldritch might combine together to form a living weapon of the Silver Flame.

    The other members of the group as not as well known, nor as well accepted as Sir Khensu and Marot. Jarrith certainly appreciates the pain that the two noblepeople Janis ir'Sandal and Daellin ir'Ayellan went through when their homeland of Cyre was destroyed. The fact that this woman and man of noble birth are now fighting the good fight rather than bemoan the loss, says a lot about their character. Jarrith finds Daellin to be a strong ally because of both their desires to eradicate the evil that is the undead, however Jarrith does often silently question the elf's motives, since he had heard that back in the elven homeland the undead are worshipped as deific figures just like the Voice Of The Flame is worshipped. And that is an anathema to him. As far as the wizard Janis ir'Sandal is concerned, she seems to be a woman of some ability, however she does not appear to have much strength... neither of muscle, nor of will, nor of character. Jarrith thinks that her skills and arcane power are impressive, but he does wonder if she will always have his back. Her desires seem to always be of a selfish nature, and her attitudes to the plight of others seem to take a backseat to her own personal plight. It makes him question whether she can truly be useful in helping him weed out the evil of the world.

    Finally, there is the woman Selase Kolandra. She is... uncomfortable to him. She is a priestess of the Blood of Vol. A necromancer. A woman who controls the undead rather than eradicates them. Jarrith has always tried to look beyond the trappings of her faith and look at the woman underneath... because he finds a good, honest, and caring woman who uses her time on Khorvaire to bring about change and protect the people of the world. However, her devotion to the Divinity Within leads to many conflicts between them, both personally and spiritually.

    Primary Role: Infiltration and observation, with a secondary role of back-up divine caster.

    Quirks and Distinguishing Abilities: Master of stealth, which is only enhanced by his abilities as a member of the Order Of Illumination. He's also very good at information gathering and character detection. He's very much a "attack first - ask questions later" kind of person, which can lead to some difficulties when dealing with polite society. Also his fervor in defending the principles of the Church can become rather tiring when he's around the non-believers. He's not the sort of guy you want to get stuck sitting next to at a dinner party... but when you are on a job you have no worries about whether he will do what is needed or asked of him. Just try not to get him to use all his divine power purely for healing... because as far as he's concerned, you can hire a Jorasco house member for that kind of crap. The Flame grants him his abilities to root out evil... not to play nursemaid to a bunch of weaklings who have stubbed their toes.

    Tactics: Will start by casting Cat's Grace on himself with his wand if he has the time to do so (always before a combat that they are the engagers of). If he suspects that this will be a very difficult fight, he will also cast Aid upon himself as well. He will then attempt to Hide if possible and work his way around to the back of combat in order to Sneak Attack from the shadows. Preferably he then engages into melee combat in as close to a flanking position as possible (usually with Sir Khensu, but with anyone else if Sir Khensu is not available). If not flanking, he will 5' step around to eventually get into flanking position. If at any point he gets injured down to 7 hit points or less, he will 5' step out of combat and exchange one of his spells for a Cure spell and cast it on himself.

    Detect secret doors (Ex): An elf that passes within 5' of a secret door automatically makes a search check as if he were actively looking.

    Appearance
    Of average height and weight for an elf (5'0", 110 lbs), only the determined look usually on Daellin's face gives any clue that he is anything but a typical Khorvaire elf. Middle age is creeping on Daellin (he's 168 years old), and he's spent most of those years in Cyre's service.

    Background
    The war was over, and Cyre was gone. Daellin had been a child when it had started, son of an important family in Metrol. Had taken service with King Connos as a young elf, learning the bow in an elite archer company. Had served with honor under Connos, and later Queen Dannel. Had commanded the same company he'd joined as boy as middle age creeped upon him, and taken the field against the Karrns when it happened.

    And he was sure that somehow, they had been responsible. Oh, some blamed the Thranes and their religious fanatics. Some blamed arcane tricks of the Aundairans. Some said House Cannith had been tinkering with things no mortal was meant to know. But black necromancy had created those things he had been battling for decades. And he knew it could do much worse.

    The Day of Mourning had taken his family; parents, siblings, even his wife. He'd thought, with the round of offensives that had been underway on that day, Cyre might be able to carve out a situation where they could sue for peace. And where Daelinn could go home and start a family. It was not to be.

    He had sought out the Prince, and delivered his company intact. Had led an expedition into the Mournland itself to confirm the fates of his family. And then he put himself at Orgarev's service, trying to punish the guilty.

    Primary Role/Distinguishing Abilities
    Ranged combatant, scout, and tracker.

    Combat/Tactics
    Daellin will engage undead over other enemies unless it is obviously foolhardy to do so. He never closes to melee range if he can avoid it, but tries to close within range to use point-blank shot if he can do so with a move action at the start of combat (though he will try to use spot/listen and the hawkeye spell to begin combat encounters at very long range, if possible). He always uses improved rapid shot with his bow rather than a standard full attack.

    Special Qualities: Scent.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Special Qualities
    Absolute Conviction (Ex): Should a shadowbane inquisitor's alignment ever change from lawful good for any reason, he may not take additional levels in this prestige class, but he does not lose any class abilities from levels already attained.
    Aura of Courage (Su): Beginning at 3rd level, a paladin is immune to fear (magical or otherwise). Each ally within 10 feet of him gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects. This ability functions while the paladin is conscious, but not if he is unconscious or dead.
    Aura of Good (Ex): A paladin has a particularly powerful aura of the Lawful Good alignment (see the detect evil spell for details).
    Divine Grace (Su): At 2nd level, a paladin gains a bonus equal to his Charisma bonus on all saves.
    Divine Health (Ex): At 3rd level, a paladin gains immunity to all diseases, including supernatural and magical diseases.
    Lay on Hands (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin with a Charisma score of 12 or higher can heal wounds (his own or those of others) by touch. Each day he can heal a total number of hit points of damage equal to his paladin level x his Charisma bonus. A paladin may choose to divide his healing among multiple recipients,and he does not have to use it all at once. Using lay on hands is a standard action.
    Alternatively, a paladin can use any or all of this healing power to deal damage to undead creatures. Using lay on hands in this way requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. The paladin decides how many of his daily allotment of points to use as damage after successfully touching an undead creature.
    Pierce Shadows (Su): A shadowbane inquisitor can spend one of his daily uses of his turn undead ability to shed a holy radiance. This light brightly illuminates an area in a radius of 20 feet plus 5 per class level of the inquisitor. The light is centered on the inquisitor and sheds no shadowy illumination beyond its border. This radiance lasts for 10 minutes per inquisitor class level.
    Smite Evil (Su): A paladin may attempt to smite evil with one normal melee attack. He adds his Charisma bonus to his attack roll and deals 1 extra point of damage per paladin level. If the paladin accidentally smites a creature that is not evil, the smite has no effect, but the ability is still used up for the day.
    Turn Undead (Su): When a paladin reaches 4th level, he gains the supernatural ability to turn undead. He may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + his Charisma modifier. He turns undead as a cleric of three levels lower would.
    Special Mount (Su): Upon reaching 5th level, a paladin gains the service of an unusually intelligent, strong, and loyal steed to serve him in his crusade against evil. This mount is usually a heavy warhorse.
    Once per day, as a full-round action, a paladin may magically call his mount from the celestial realms in which it resides. The mount immediately appears adjacent to the paladin and remains for 2 hours per paladin level; it may be dismissed at any time as a free action. The mount is the same creature each time it is summoned, though the paladin may release a particular mount from service. Each time the mount is called, it appears in full health, regardless of any damage it may have taken previously. The mount also appears wearing or carrying any gear it had when it was last dismissed. Calling a mount is a conjuration (calling) effect.
    Should the paladin's mount die, it immediately disappears, leaving behind any equipment it was carrying. The paladin may not summon another mount for thirty days or until she gains a paladin level, whichever comes first, even if the mount is somehow returned from the dead. During this thirty-day period, the paladin takes a -1 penalty on attack and weapon damage rolls.
    Wildhunt Shifter (Su): A shifter can tap into his lycanthropic heritage to gain short bursts of physical power. Once per day, a shifter can enter a state that is superficially similar to a barbarian's rage. Shifting is a free action and lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + the shifter's Constitution modifier. (If an effect increases the character's Constitution modifier, use the newly improved modifier.) A shifter can take feats to improve this ability.
    Every shifter feat a character takes increases the duration of his shifting by 1 round. For every two shifter feats a character takes, the number of times per day he can tap into the ability increases by one.
    Shifting, though related to and developed from lycanthropy, is neither an affliction nor a curse. It is not passed on by bite or claw attacks, and a shifter can't be cured - shifting is a natural ability for the race.
    While shifting, a wildhunt shifter temporarily gains a +2 bonus to Constitution and the scent ability. This ability allows the shifter to detect approaching creatures, sniff out hidden creatures, and track by sense of smell. A wildhunt shifter can identify familiar odors just as a human does familiar sights.
    A wildhunt shifter can detect creatures within 30 feet by sense of smell. If the creature is upwind, the range increases to 60 feet; if downwind, it drops to 15 feet. Strong scents, such as smoke or rotting garbage, can be detected at twice the ranges noted above. Overpowering scents, such as skunk musk or troglodyte stench, can be detected at triple normal range. These stronger scents block other scents, so they can sometimes be used to confuse or hamper this shifter trait.
    When a wildhunt shifter detects a scent, the exact location of the source isn't revealed - only its presence somewhere within range. The shifter can take a move action to note the direction of the scent. Whenever the shifter comes within 5 feet of the source, he pinpoints the source's location.
    While shifting, a wildhunt shifter who has the Track feat can follow tracks by smell, making Survival checks to find or follow a trail. The typical DC for a fresh trail is 10 (regardless of the surface that holds the scent). This DC increases or decreases depending on how strong the quarry's odor is, the number of creatures producing the odor, and the age of the trail. For each hour that the trail grows cold, the DC increases by 2. This ability otherwise follows the rules for the Track feat. Shifters tracking by scent ignore the effects of surface conditions and poor visibility.
    When not shifting, a wildhunt shifter gains a +2 bonus on Survival checks due to the lingering effects of the scent ability.

    Tactics
    Khensu will always strive to place himself between the weaker members of the party and danger. He will attempt to position himself to allow for a Cleave. If a target is easily hit (AC 13 or less), Khensu will Power Attack for 3. He generally will only use his smite against the most powerful creature in a combat.

    Appearance 5'11", 200 lbs. Tall, lean and all corded muscle, Khensu has the broad, flat nose and propensity towards hairiness of all shifters. Unlike others of his race, he keeps himself well-groomed, trimming the hair on his arms and legs to more easily fit into Flamer society. The dark brown hair on his head is braided and tied back into a topknot. The only concession he has to the habits of his race is a tattoo on his right bicep: normally, it appears to an image of a sword bisecting an hourglass, but when Khensu shifts the hourglass expands, forming a silver flame around the blade of the sword.

    Background A shifter orphan raised in the city of Flamekeep, Khensu has always known that the shifter blood that flows through his veins is a weakness to be overcome. The catechism stories told of the savage lycanthropes and their lesser cousins, the weretouched, and the savagery that these races visited upon the civilized races of Khorvaire; how could an impressionable child take it as anything but a condemnation?

    He was watched carefully by the proctors, and the slightest trangression was met with harsh reminders that Khensu would always be a lesser race, tainted by the blood of his ancestors. While others would rebel against such judgement, Khensu found instead meaning. As he grew, Khensu strove to purify the bestial taint within him by devotation to the Silver Flame, praying that the cleansing purity of the Flame would cleanse him as Kloinjer cleansed the demon's fire. It was the proudest moment of his young life when he was accepted as a squire of the templars, and he proved his worth on the training grounds and in battling the dark forces that threatened Thrane.

    In time, his unyielding stance towards corruption earned him the attention of the Puritans, a faction of the Silver Flame that believes in literal interpretation of the Voice of the Flame. Khensu became a novitiate of the Order of Illumination, a knightly order of the Puritans that strives to cleanse the world of all evil. The Order of Illumination combined the knowledge of evil with the zeal of good, and Khensu drank in the teachings of the Order with a fervor that could only be explained by the knowledge that he was an incarnation of their teachings; the bestial urges he constantly fought granted him insight itno those he destroyed, but to allow them free reign would doom him in the eyes of the Church.

    Upon becoming a novitiate of the Order, Khensu was paired with a fellow Lumin, Jarrith Bronns. Jarrith had been brought into the ranks of the Order from the clergy of the Silver Flame, and his studies into the theology of the Church offered insight into different methods of dealing with the evils of the world. Khensu has come to rely on Bronns' differing viewpoints in order to counterbalance the dogma that the shifter forces upon himself to keep himself pure; Khensu also insures that his fellow Lumin does not fall from the path as well. Khensu is currently undergoing the last trails of his novitiate before being granted entry into the ranks of the Inquisitors; once he has joined that august body, he will have realized his life's goal.

    Khensu and Jarrith were teamed with Marot on their first mission for the Order of Illumination. What should have been a simple scouting expedition turned bloody when the Khyber cultists they were investigating discovered them and attacked en masse. The Lumins were reprimanded for not successfully completing their mission, and this failure hammered home to Khensu the value of planning - a skill that does not come naturally to a weretouched.

    Khensu has trouble trusting Marot fully; the warlock's eagerness to tap into his heritage makes the paladin uncomfortable. The warlock had a way with those they encountered, though, and an understanding of the enemies that the trio frequently faced. It was the warlock that first made contact with Selase, a priestess of Vol who aided the three in escaping Karrlakton when they were trapped there after the Day of Mourning. Khensu could find no evil clinging to her soul, and while her religion is inconceivable to him, he knows that one day she will find the purity of the Flame - whether in life or in death.

    It was two years after the Day of Mourning that Khensu discovered the price of notoriety. The Thaliost Station Six was was the papers called them - the three Flamers, Selase, and a pair of Cyran expatriates (Daelin and Janis) fought off a sabotage attempt by minions of the fabled Lord of Blades. Khensu himself slew the warforged sorcerer that led the attack, and was gifted with a holy symbol forged of flametouched iron - a symbol of devotion among the Church of the Silver Flame.

    It was almost a year later when Khensu - Sir Khensu now - as well as Jarrith and Marot were tasked with investigating disturbing rumors of lyncathropy in Lessyk. To Khensu's horror, there was a lyncathropic infestation - an infestation that seemed to center on a shifter village. The actions taken in the village were necessary, but Khensu would from then on find himself ostracized by the weretouched for the necessary cleansing that the Lumins visited upon them. Fate revealed the other three of the Thaliost Station Six were in the area as well; Daelin the elf was hunting ghouls within Lessyk, while Selase was present to find missing pilgrims to whom she had been teaching the tenets of Vol. It was Janis, the wizardess, who tied the disparate threads together and all of the Six realized that the lycanthropes, the undead, and the missing pilgrims were the work of an undead lycanthrope who laired beneath Lessyk. The Six united to defeat the undead menace and then departed seperately as quickly as they had come together.

    Primary Role/Distinguishing Abilities Khensu's primary role is that of tank. He has access to limited healing, allowing the clerics to focus on the most injured party members.

    Quirks Unlike his comrade-in-arms, Khensu is deeply introspective. While he has a judgemental streak a mile long, he watches and judges rather than lashes out with fury. Khensu is aware that appearances are not always what they seem to be, and is quite willing to give opponents the opportunity to purify themselves. If they refuse, or are found wanting, he quickly dispatches them to the Hells Below. Khensu does not like to shift, and only does so when necessary - he does not feel comfortable taking on the aspect of the beast within himself.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Deathbound Domain Power: Selase's limit for creating undead animated with spells is three times her caster level instead of two.
    Spontaneous Wounding: Selase can convert any prepared spell into an Inflict spell of equal or lower level.
    Spontaneous Healing: Four times per day, Selase can convert a prepared spell into a Cure spell of equal or lower level.
    Divine Spell Power: As a free action, Selase can spend a rebuke attempt and roll a turning check (with a total bonus of +7). She treats the result as a modifier to her caster level on the next divine spell she casts in that round.

    Appearance: Selase is a lightly built but serious-looking twenty-five-year-old, with fair skin and brown hair that falls just past her shoulders. Her clothing is various tones of gray and brown but she usually adds a red belt or sash. When necessary, she wears deep red plate armor with black trim and engraved with a few symbols, which serves double duty as ceremonial garb. One too many instances of ambushes and friendly fire has taught Selase to be prepared for anything, so most of the time she wears a chain shirt under her tunic.

    Background: Selase has always been very spiritual and devoted to her faith, the Blood of Vol. When she was old enough, she felt a strong desire to spread the truth of the Divinity Within, and so underwent a cleric's training. Only those who demonstrate that they will obey orders without question are brought into the secret of the truth of the church, and Selase questioned everything - she always sought the why, philosophizing endlessly and expounding the virtues she discovered in her contemplations. Her idealism led to the completion of her training without even a suspicion of the real origins of her faith.
    In her travels as a missionary, Selase was exposed to many of the horrors of the Last War, and she soon added her voice to the movements for peace. She traveled with a unit from her native Karrnath, healing the wounded (on both sides, when possible) and generally trying to ease the horrific body count. Each person she saved, she reasoned, was a person who might yet unlock the Divinity Within and discover true paradise.
    With the end of the war, the unit disbanded, and Selase returned to her work as a missionary. She became attached to an adventuring group, and has taken her message of faith (and her continual, although friendly, debates with her companions) all across Khorvaire.

    Primary Role/Distinguishing Abilities: Selase is a more than competent healer, as well as a powerful spellcaster in her own right.

    Quirks: Despite her love of religious debate, Selase is actually quite tolerant of most faiths, although she certainly does not endorse them. She has a tendency to wax philosophical. She has unusual views regarding the warforged, probably best summarized as pity.

    Tactics: Selase uses her spells as her primary tool in combat, resorting to physical attacks only when she has nothing better to use. With a fairly high AC and hit points, she's willing to expose herself to an AoO if it will allow her to reach a comrade in need or deliver a crucial spell. Usually, she will open with a spell to buff herself or an ally (such as Bull's Strength) or to disable an enemy (such as Hold Person), and in subsequent rounds use more direct spells like Chill of the Grave and Dispel Magic.

    Non-SRD Spells

    Chill of the Grave: Range Close ray deals 1d10/2d10/3d10/4d10 cold damage at caster level 1st/4th/7th/10th. (Necromancy; Deathbound 1; Spell Compendium)
    Blade of Pain and Fear: A three-foot-long column of disembodied gnashing teeth springs forth from your hand. For 1 round/level, your melee touch attack deals 1d6 + 1/two levels (Strength mod does not apply). Creatures damaged are also frightened for 1d4 rounds unless they make a Will save. (Evocation; Deathbound 2, Cleric 3; Spell Compendium)
    Ring of Blades: For 1 minute/level, horizontal ring of blades extends 5 feet around the caster into all adjacent squares, and moves with you. At the beginning of each of your turns, and also when you cast the spell, the blades deal 1d6 + 1/level to all creatures in the affected area. SR does not apply, but damage reduction does; the blades are treated as magic, silvered, and slashing. (Conjuration (creation); Cleric 3; Spell Compendium. I think it also appears in Complete Arcane)
    Healing Lorecall: For 10 minutes/level, when casting a Conjuration (healing) spell, you may also remove any one of the following conditions: dazed, dazzled, or fatigued. Also, you may substitute your total ranks in Heal for your caster level (only for Conjuration (healing) spells). (Divination; Cleric 2; Spell Compendium)
    Divine Insight: Once during the spell's duration (1 hour/level) as an immediate action, you can choose to use its effect to grant an insight bonus of 5 + your caster level on any single skill check. You must choose to use the bonus before you roll the check. You can't have more than one Divine Insight effect active on you at the same time. (Divination; Cleric 2; Spell Compendium)
    Dark Way You create a ribbonlike, weightless bridge 5 feet wide, one inch thick (although it is unbreakable) and up to 20 feet per caster level long. It must be anchored to solid objects at both ends but can otherwise be at any angle, and must be continuous and unbroken (like a Wall of Force). The bridge can support 200 lbs/level, creatures that cause the total weight to exceed this limit fall through the bridge as though it were not there. The bridge lasts for 1 round/level. (Illusion (shadow); Cleric 2; Spell Compendium)

    Aura of courage (Su): A Paladin is immune to fear. Each ally within 10 feet gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear.
    Aura of good (Ex): The power of a paladin's aura of good is equal to her paladin level. (Faint [1] | Moderate [2-4] | Strong [5-10] | Overwhelming [11+])
    Detect undead (Sp): You can sense the presence of undead within 60ft. Specifically you can sense the presence or absence of undead, the number of undead auras (creatures, objects, or spells) in the area and the power of the most potent, and the power and location of each aura. If an aura is overwhelming and the level of the aura is at least twice your character level, you are stunned for 1 round. (Faint [2HD] | Moderate [3-8HD] | Strong [9-20HD] | Overwhelming [21+HD])
    Divine grace (Su): Gain a bonus equal to her Charisma bonus on all saving throws
    Divine health (Ex): Gain immunity to all diseases
    Lay on hands (Su): A paladin can heal wounds by touch. Each day she can heal a total number of hit points of damage equal to her paladin level x charisma bonus. Using lay on hands is a standard action. Alternatively a paladin can use any or all of this healing power to deal damage to an undead creature. This requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn't provoke an AoO.
    Remove disease (Sp): A paladin can produce a remove disease effect (as the spell).
    Smite evil (Su): A paladin may attempt to smite evil with a normal melee attack. She adds her Charisma bonus to her attack roll and deals 1 extra point of damage per paladin level.
    Special mount (Sp): A paladin gains the service of an unusually intelligent, strong and loyal steed to serve her in her crusade. Once per day, as a full-round action, a paladin may magically may call her mount from the celestial realms in which it resides. This ability is the equivalent of a spell of a level one-third the paladin's class level. The mount appears adjacent to the paladin, at full health and wearing or carrying any gear it had when it was last dismissed, and remains for 2 hours per paladin level. It may be dismissed at any time as a free action.
    Turn undead (Su): Gains the ability to turn undead. She may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. She turns undead as a cleric of three levels lower would.

    Combat expertise: Take a penalty of up to -5 on attacks and add the same as a dodge bonus to AC
    Force of personality: Add charisma modifier instead of wisdom modifier to will saves vs mind affecting spells and effects
    Improved smite: Smite is aligned attack; +1d6 damage

    Appearance
    Ashlyn is a short woman with a wiry strength and resilience. Her white blond hair, cropped short, frames a beautiful visage, her unblemished features a stark relief to her martial garb and demeanor. Her intense green eyes gaze out, unblinking, and unflinching. Hardship and horrors have tempered her in untold conflicts and she is a hard woman, as hard as the blade she wields. Her garb is simple and practical, a blouse and trousers, covered by shining plate over which is worn an exquisite purple cloak. A shield hangs from her back, and a sword is sheathed by her side.


    Background
    Born during the nigh constant conflict of the Last War, Ashlyn is well used to battle. The ancestral lands of her mother's family lie to the northwest of what was once Metrol, along the west bank of the Cyre river, yet she has never lived there. Their home was the site of neverending battles against the undead forces of Karrnath, thus Ashlyn and her mother sought refuge in the Metropolis of Metrol. Her father, a true magewright and master craftsman, took up the mantle of war, unsuited for it though he was, and rode against the undead legions. Ashlyn does not know what became of him, but it is thought that he fell in combat for he never returned to his wife and daughter. After many long, cold, and dreary months waiting for her fathers return, Ashlyn's mother, tired, worn and sick of the war, took her daughter away, accross Lake Cyre into the north of Valenar. There they made their way to a nearby town and sought refuge within an old temple to the Host. Only a few short months later came the Day of Mourning.

    The catalysm, that shook all of Khorvaire and destroyed Cyre, affected the survivors in different ways, ... some lost the will to continue and found an end of one sort or another, ... some began to wander, sometimes stopping in one place or another, but never truly settling down, ... some used the destruction of their homeland as their fire to continue, ... some denied it, ... and some few simply got on with life. Ashlyn was one of the later. Having lived with the constant reality of war her entire life, she was well familiar with the concepts of loss and survival, and now, as before, the practicality of survival overode the loss and she perservered.

    Perserverence took Ashlyn down the path of a paladin over the following years, perserverence, tenacity and devotion. Devotion to certain ideals that she holds self-evident, and devotion to the divine embodiment of those ideals, Dol Arrah. It was, however, her memory of the undead legions of Karrnath that led her to the lightbringers. Perserverence and implacable resolve, virtue and flaw. The mix is deadly.

    The last few years have been filled with battle, constant and unending battle. No matter how many of the undead fall before her, no matter how many friends and comrades fall beside her, Ashlyn continues on.


    Primary role/Distinguishing abilities
    Primary melee combatant/Alternate healer (Sacred healing).


    Tactics
    Ashlyn will normally consider a strategic viewpoint of combat and place herself appropriately, often in a melee position that prevents her opponents from getting past her to the softer targets. When mounted she will guide Valo with her knees so that both she and Valo can attack, usually focusing on the same target(s). It is a rare occasion that she resorts to ranged combat, preferring melee, but if it is tactically sound to maintain range and does not endanger others, then she may stay mounted and fire her crossbow from horseback. If a battle swings in her opponents favor and things become desperate for her and her friends, then she may expend a turning in order to heal herself and her allies. However normally she will reserve such healing for after the battle.
    Against undead, her strategies tend to be much simpler and involve slashing at the nearest undead with her blade. At the start of such a combat against undead, she may consider turning them if her knowledge of them does not indicate that they are too powerful for such an attempt.
    Finally, although eminently practical, Ashlyn will always try to save those that she can (especially from the clutches of the undead). She will even risk her life for it if she thinks that there are good odds that she will succeed.


    Quirks
    Ashlyn embodies many of the traits that exemplify Dol Arrah. In particular she has a unyielding sense of honor and believes strongly in honorable combat and self sacrifice. However her youthful naiveity has been wiped away long ago, and she does not expect to see such honor in others. On the rare occasions that another displays such, she shows her respect by falling back on the formal forms that she learnt during her training. Spiritually tired, yet refusing to fall or stop, Ashlyn is emminently practical and has relatively little time for niceities or feelings including her own. Ironically she is often viewed as cold or callous by others, yet it is her need to protect the living that drives her. She is a careful planner and strategist although her hated of the undead occasionally clouds her judgement.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Bardic Knowledge: A bard may make a special bardic knowledge check with a bonus equal to his bard level + his Intelligence modifier to see whether he knows some relevant information about local notable people, legendary items, or noteworthy places. (If the bard has 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (history), he gains a +2 bonus on this check.)
    A successful bardic knowledge check will not reveal the powers of a magic item but may give a hint as to its general function. A bard may not take 10 or take 20 on this check; this sort of knowledge is essentially random.
    Bardic Music: Once per day per bard level, a bard can use his song or poetics to produce magical effects on those around him (usually including himself, if desired). While these abilities fall under the category of bardic music and the descriptions discuss singing or playing instruments, they can all be activated by reciting poetry, chanting, singing lyrical songs, singing melodies, whistling, playing an instrument, or playing an instrument in combination with some spoken performance. Each ability requires both a minimum bard level and a minimum number of ranks in the Perform skill to qualify; if a bard does not have the required number of ranks in at least one Perform skill, he does not gain the bardic music ability until he acquires the needed ranks.
    Starting a bardic music effect is a standard action. Some bardic music abilities require concentration, which means the bard must take a standard action each round to maintain the ability. Even while using bardic music that doesn’t require concentration, a bard cannot cast spells, activate magic items by spell completion (such as scrolls), or activate magic items by magic word (such as wands). Just as for casting a spell with a verbal component, a deaf bard has a 20% chance to fail when attempting to use bardic music. If he fails, the attempt still counts against his daily limit.
    Countersong (Su): A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to counter magical effects that depend on sound (but not spells that simply have verbal components). Each round of the countersong, he makes a Perform check. Any creature within 30 feet of the bard (including the bard himself) that is affected by a sonic or language-dependent magical attack may use the bard’s Perform check result in place of its saving throw if, after the saving throw is rolled, the Perform check result proves to be higher. If a creature within range of the countersong is already under the effect of a noninstantaneous sonic or language-dependent magical attack, it gains another saving throw against the effect each round it hears the countersong, but it must use the bard’s Perform check result for the save. Countersong has no effect against effects that don’t allow saves. The bard may keep up the countersong for 10 rounds.
    Fascinate (Sp): A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to cause one or more creatures to become fascinated with him. Each creature to be fascinated must be within 90 feet, able to see and hear the bard, and able to pay attention to him. The bard must also be able to see the creature. The distraction of a nearby combat or other dangers prevents the ability from working. For every three levels a bard attains beyond 1st, he can target one additional creature with a single use of this ability.
    To use the ability, a bard makes a Perform check. His check result is the DC for each affected creature’s Will save against the effect. If a creature’s saving throw succeeds, the bard cannot attempt to fascinate that creature again for 24 hours. If its saving throw fails, the creature sits quietly and listens to the song, taking no other actions, for as long as the bard continues to play and concentrate (up to a maximum of 1 round per bard level). While fascinated, a target takes a –4 penalty on skill checks made as reactions, such as Listen and Spot checks. Any potential threat requires the bard to make another Perform check and allows the creature a new saving throw against a DC equal to the new Perform check result.
    Any obvious threat, such as someone drawing a weapon, casting a spell, or aiming a ranged weapon at the target, automatically breaks the effect. Fascinate is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting ability.
    Inspire Courage (Su): A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to inspire courage in his allies (including himselfs), bolstering them against fear and improving their combat abilities. To be affected, an ally must be able to hear the bard sing. The effect lasts for as long as the ally hears the bard sing and for 5 rounds thereafter. An affected ally receives a +1 morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear effects and a +1 morale bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls. At 8th level, and every six bard levels thereafter, this bonus increases by 1 (+2 at 8th, +3 at 14th, and +4 at 20th). Inspire courage is a mind-affecting ability.
    Inspire Competence (Su): A bard of 3rd level or higher with 6 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to help an ally succeed at a task. The ally must be within 30 feet and able to see and hear the bard. The bard must also be able to see the ally.
    The ally gets a +2 competence bonus on skill checks with a particular skill as long as he or she continues to hear the bard’s music. Certain uses of this ability are infeasible. The effect lasts as long as the bard concentrates, up to a maximum of 2 minutes. A bard can’t inspire competence in himself. Inspire competence is a mind-affecting ability.

    Lesser dragonmark: restoration 1/day, caster level of all dragonmark abilities is 6+levels in dragonmark heir class.
    House status: A dragonmark heir uses his level in the class as a bonus on all Charisma-related checks when dealing with member of his own house.
    Additional action points: A dragonmark heir's maximum action points per level is increased by 2.
    Improved least dragonmark: A dragonmark heir gains improved mastery of his least dragonmark. He can select a second spell-like ability associated with the least dragonmark for his house, or he can use the least dragonmark spell-like ability he already possesses one additional time per day.

    Favored in house: You have the ability to call in favors from other members of your family and their extensive contacts. Call in favor 3/week (favor check 1d20+2)
    Least dragonmark: lesser restoration 1/day; +2 on Heal checks
    Level 6 feat: ...

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Appearance
    Bergeron is a short, stocky fellow, standing 3’1” and weighing 35 lbs, and has poor muscle tone and a pudgy belly. He keeps his curly auburn hair cut short, and has wide almost almond shaped hazel eyes. When entertaining, Bergeron likes to wear brightly colored clothing (usually bright blues and greens or purples) and a big, floppy hat. When being a guide, tour guide or healer, he usually wears darker colors such as dark green or blue, brown or black.

    Bergeron almost always carries his lute, his preferred stringed instrument. If he can’t play his instrument, he sings as well. He keeps his dagger hidden in his left boot at most times, and if he needs it, he keeps his light crossbow on his back (if it’s not in his hands!), his bolts on his right hip, his small mace on his left hip, and his buckler on his right wrist/forearm. Bergeron’s pouches are usually bulging with odds and ends, and his “magic bag” can be found hanging from his belt.


    Background
    Bergeron d’Jorasco, formerly Bergeron Foebender, grew up in Vedykar. Being a “civilized” Khorvarian Halfling, Bergeron thought that he would try to offer his services to House Jorasco. He was refused at first, having little or no use for a lazy Halfling. Bergeron went out to study, and learned quickly that he had an affinity for music and song. He also discovered that he had a great love for lore and maps. After a bit of traveling to Sharn and back, Bergeron returned to Vedykar, spreading the songs of the great and brave Bergeron Foebender. About this time, he started to develop a Mark of Healing, which started developing on his right wrist. House Jorasco was then VERY interested in Bergeron, and they brought him in. They gave him training in the healing arts, and taught him to use his abilities and love of knowledge and maps to be a three fold service from House Jorasco: entertainment, guide and healer. He has spent the past few months in service to House Jorasco, with the power of his dragon mark growing.


    Primary Role
    Bergeron’s primary role is a supportive one, in a three fold capacity. He is “missle support”, preferring to avoid melee combat when possible. His second capacity is one of a guide, providing lore and maps (a love of Bergeron’s) and entertainment. His last role, and his main one, is that of healing. Now being from House Jorasco, Bergeron uses his spells, healing skills and dragon mark to provide healing services.


    Distinguishing Abilities
    He is a very accomplished entertainer, especially when playing a stringed instrument.
    His most distinguishing ability though, stems from his dragon mark, the Mark of Healing.


    Quirks
    Bergeron has a few quirks, but his main ones are that he is a lazy coward. He avoids manual labor as much as possible, spending his time in eating, drinking and entertaining when he possibly can. At heart, Bergeron wants to be heroic and brave, and has at times been that, but he is afraid of a lot of things, but being near the Karranth area, he is terrified of undead.

    Bergeron also likes to talk a lot, and talks himself up as being heroic and brave. He is quick of wit, with a sharp tongue, and even faster with a song. He also obsesses over maps.

    Appearance
    Although he is a very large young man, Perriwimple is so unassuming as to be easily overlooked. His muscles are not those of a body builder, but those of someone who comes by his build from hard work. He has pale, mousy hair, and a generally quiet demeanour.

    Personality & Background
    At first blush it seems that Perriwimple is dominated by his father, but in truth his personality has been shaped by the stories of his maternal grandmother, Grandma Margaret. Grandma Margaret often regaled him with fanciful tales of a time when Barovia was filled with opportunities for adventure. So while he has always been a good nephew and helped his uncle, he longs to be able to live out those stories told by Grandma Margaret and help the people of the world. A few months ago he found a hidden cache of arms and armour while tidying an unused corner of his uncle's business, and after Grandma Margaret's passing during the recent troubles, he chose to run away from home in the hopes of fulfilling his dream.
