Voadam heard Gamad scream and spun around to see the deformed dwarf had once again pulled out the Fragment of the Rod of Law. "I see Darkness, it is coming … Nooooo!" Gamad wailed. Then all turned black as the Queen of Chaos used Gamad's contact to send her power bubbling through the artefact and banish the heroes to the corners of the multiverse with her raw power.
Voadam recognized the tearing of a planar rift having experienced these before. But there was more this time. Raw Chaos flowed through the rift, warping into the demon hunter himself and changing him, robbing him of some of his humanity, altering him.
He awoke alone. He felt different and quickly took stock of his situation. His singed black robes were quickly mended by a cantrip. By the stars he was no longer on the same world. Voadam cursed. "Again."However there was also something new within himself, he could see in the dark. When he focused on the fact that it was dark a brightness welled up from within him, illuminating the night as if it was full day.
The demon hunting wizard saw the lights of a city in the distance then narrowed his eyes as he took in the details. The lights were too high for a normal city. The buildings in this city were floating in the air. He decided to head there once he got his bearings, he would have to determine what world he was now on and see if he could find out whether the Queen, the Lord, or the Vaati were active here. He also needed to figure out what had happened to him. Likely this would take money and connections he did not have at the moment. No stranger to the mercenary life or starting anew on unknown worlds Voadam would have to begin all over again. He needed to know more and a magical settlement was a good place to begin. Likely there would be some opportunities for a wizard like himself who was not averse to facing dangers.
A few days later Voadam had enmeshed himself with local sages, avidly diving into all the lore of the land he could acquire. The dream plane was connected to this world, though possibly different from the one he knew from Segmenta. It looked like Chaos was here as well though known locally under the name of Madness. The planes moved in and out of conjunctions with this world of Eberron, though there were some permanent overlap sites such as the city which allowed for the floating citadels. The local cosmology posited the world as being composed of three dragons, the sky above, the land below, and the land itself. There were a number of deities in the local faiths, though all were new to the world-traveller.
He was delighted to find that low level magic was pervasive and minor crafters, locally known as magewrights, seemed as common as mundane smiths. Dragonmarks were new to him but Voadam quickly learned of their import for the world's commerce and politics along with the influence of the dragonmarked houses. There were airships similar to the spelljammers he had flown and crafted in the past, though these were powered by bound elementals and not helms.
Learning of an offer of employ by major Houses for "hale adventurers" to explore a giant filled continent Voadam began to learn giantish and sought out the position.
Tactically Voadam is very much into using field control spells to channel enemies into positions where his allies can concentrate fire on them. He also has a great store of lore on a wide variety of topics and likes to maintain access to a wide variety of utility magics to handle many situations.
A big bear of a man, Voadam stands over six feet tall. His brown hair and beard are streaked with silver since his transformation and his steel blue eyes seems to have picked up flashes of silver as well. Voadam is often seen wearing dark black robes with a green sash, his hair held back by a silver circlet.
Voadam is a friendly man with an inquisitive nature. He often finds himself diving into adventures for what he believes is the greater good. He has been a mercenary, world traveller, ruler, merchant, and hunter of all manner of evil (undead, warlocks, demons). He rose to great heights of power and started from nothing multiple times on different worlds. He is used to working with strange and diverse allies.

Short and athletic, Sanne keeps her hair cut short, and is usually seen in the uniform of a Lyrandar Captain, with rapier on one hip. Her most distinctive feature, though, is the Lesser Mark of Storm on her left shoulder, wrapping into her neck and back.
Ambitious and enthusiastic, Sanne's temperment is well-suitied to a Windwright Captain. She's not quite as willing to risk all for glory and gold as she projects, but she does enjoy a challenge.
Sanne Bacher d'Lyranadar was born at House Lyranader's home base of Stormhome, off the coast of Aundair to two traders who worked out of the House's Wind Galleons. Sanne dreamed of working in the sky, of captaining one of the rare airships, and when she manifested the Mark of Storm, she was sure that she could make her dream come true.
And she has. From an apprentice voyage on a wind galleon nearly thirty years ago to her first appointment as an airship officer to first mate, and then the captaincy of the regular House fleet vessel Lyrandar's Pride. And then to the next to last step to a ship of her own -- Windwright Captain of Stormrider.
When House Medani had begun to look for an airship to take their expedition to Xen'drik, they quickly realized that for all their brashness, no regular Lyrandar captain would take the job. Sure, the payoff could be great, but it sounded like a very high-risk operation. Which was exactly what the House maintained its Windwright Captains for. She'd set Stormrider on its way to Sharn within hours of learning of the job.
Combat and tactics:
A lifetime on ships and airships has given Sanne a lot of experience with acrobatic manuevering; she usually covers a lot of ground in a fight, taking any openings for ripostes that she sees. If she expects a fight, she'll use her minor artificer skills to enhance her rapier and/or her armor beforehand.

Mechanics from Eberron rulebooks...
From the Explorer's Handbook, the Windwright Captain prestige class (link is to the PrC in the Explorer's Handbook excerpt on WotC's web site)
From Dragonmarked, the Storm's Riposte feat.
Prerequisite: Any Mark of Storm
Benefit: You can spend 1 action point as an immediate action to make a melee attack against an opponent that has just made a melee attack against you. If your riposte succeeds, you deal an extra 1d6 points of electricty damage or sonic damage (your choice) in addition to normal damage for the attack.
If you have a lesser Mark of Storm, the energy damage from your riposte increases to 2d6. If you have a greater Mark of Storm or a Siberys Mark of Storm, the energy damage increases to 3d6.
Prerequisite: Tumble 12 ranks
Benefit: If you succeed in using Tumble to avoid an opponent's attack of opportunity, you gain a +4 bonus on the next attack that you make against that foe as long as the attack occurs before the end of your current turn.

I am not a kind person. More than most of my people, I am feral, dangerous, rude, and eager to spill blood. Yet I am not an evil person. The blood that I spill is that of the cruel and decadent, those that I am rude to deserve it, and the danger I represent is not to those on the side of good. My animal ferocity is brought against those who defile the world, not those who revere it.
This does not make me good in the eyes of many, yet I speak only the bluntest of truths in this matter. The beast spirit within my breast has no need for false words and sweet lies. I am a fighter of the wood, a seeker of truth, and a destroyer of darkness. Because I do not wear shining armor, I am discounted as a barbarian. Because I make no speeches to rouse the hearts of the weak and helpless, I am seen as cruel and rude. Because I gore my enemies to death with my own horns, I am feared. Because I demand gold for my strength, they whisper curses behind my back. Yet the danger passes after I have, and things are better when I leave.
My name is Morika. I am a gorebrute shifter, a druid whose animal spirit lies within rather than without, a hunter of evil and a speaker of uncomfortable truths. I will answer your call, for you seek those who act without though, who commits completely to a course of another's choosing. I am such a woman.
Appearance: Morika is a small woman, heavily muscled, with a heavy forehead that gives her face a brutish cast. Her eyes are dark gray, and her long dark brown hair is worn in a multitude of braids. Tattoos cross her neck and back, as well as down her arms and legs in intricate, stylizes shapes of animals. Her expression is often dour, and when she smiles, her teeth are very sharp. She wears worn leather armor and sturdy clothing, and keeps a sickle at her belt and a shield on her arm. Her other weapons and various sundries are kept in her well-made backpack, so it seems she is traveling exceptionally light.
Background: Morika was born at the border of the Eldeen Reaches, Breland, and what would become Droaam, and became thrown into the war at a young age. Her strength, even when young, was prodigious, and her senses were keen. Her shifting manifested early, in her growing the horns of the great mountain rams of the Byeshk Mountains. She was an only child in a small extended family of shifters, the Kevsecks, all of who fought fiercely to protect their tiny corner of the world from the armies of Breland and the monsters of Droaam.
The humans that lived near them welcomed her family's strength, but not them. Healing and other aid was given fearfully and reluctantly, and despite the fact that the villages needed the protection of her clan, they considered them little more than half-tamed beasts. Despite their reluctant care, they did have a deeply-buried kernel of pride, which is what kept the Kevsecks at their deadly work. Two uncles and five cousins died under the swords of ogres or the arrows of human archers, and Morika, too young to avenge them, had to find a new way to channel the anger of their senseless deaths.
It was her mother who led her deep into the unspoiled wilds to attempt to bring her child's anger and pain under control. Shifters often had uncontrollable tempers and bouts of violence that brought them such trouble, yet made them such powerful protectors. "It is called 'The Beast Within,' the blood of our lycanthrope ancestors that bound the spirit of the animals within us. In you it burns so brightly, my daughter. If you learn to bond and merge with your beast spirit, you can channel your anger, your pain, and be stronger than anyone could imagine."
Morika spent the last five years of the Last War at a curious peace with herself. She was still given to violence and rage, but now she raged with reason, with purpose. The establishment of the Treaty of Thronehold forced her to find a new reason. The simplest was to wander, something she had been wanting to do for many years. Freed from the responsibility of protecting the villages from marauding armies, she struck out across the Eldeen Reaches and beyond. Gold bought her strength, rage, and purpose now, her protection against the evils of bandits and monsters. Going as the wind took her, Morika has been searching for a new purpose with each new place and contract.
While Morika's mother, S'veka, followed no formal druidic tradition, Morika has found a niche in one of the lesser-known sects, the Greensingers. During the lulls in the Last War, Morika made friends with an oread named Stonefell in the Byshek mountains. Her own nature of the stubborn goat fitted with Stonefell's, and Morika began to learn more about the wider nature of fey from her. Though not a scholar, Morika made an effort to learn Stonefell's native language of Sylvan, so she could converse with other fey.
She fell naturally into the Greensinger sect when they found the angry young shifter talking earnestly with dryads and sprites in their territory. Most people have been very surprised when they learn what path Morika follows. She has the voice of a crow, the face of an irritable goat, and the rhythm of a rock, which puts her in the extreme minority with the beautiful and talented elves, half-elves, and humans that comprise most of the sect. Instead of representing the endless revel of nature, as most of them do, she represents its fury. She has been known to take up quests of vengeance on behalf of fey otherwise bound to once area of the land.
Despite this, she has an almost childlike awe of natural beauty, and her rudeness disappears entirely from her when she is in the deep woods or conversing with friendly fey.

Aeranduil is tall, standing near six feet in height, his athletic frame extremely well muscled, especially for an elf. His lustrous copper-colored hair is long, and usually worn braided with feathers and beads of polished agate. Aeranduil has emerald green eyes, and dresses in the colors of the woodlands: shades of greens and browns. He wears clothing designed for both comfort and function: soft leathers and warm wools. He wears a few pieces of jewelry, but nothing fancy: most of it is crafted of beads of polished stones and carved wood.
An expert archer, Aeranduil is known for his prowess at hunting giants. His bow Taurionamarth (lit. Giant Doom) is his weapon of choice in this pursuit, and he uses it with incredible skill. Although quite capable of using a bow even in the midst of melee, he is also known for wielding a greatsword during those few times his bow is not enough.
The elf hails from the heavily forested Eldeen Reaches. The vast Towering Wood is the only home Aeranduil has ever known...his tribe lived peacefully within the ancient forest, hunting of the plentiful game, aiding the druids and rangers of the woods against the many dangers of the wilderness, and trading with the farmers along the wood's edge. Aeranduil grew up learning the ways of the woodlands, of the earth, and of the animals. He befriended nomadic centaurs and feral shifters, and life was good.
Although young, Aeranduil's skill was enough that he was able to join the patrols of those rangers that guard the woods. A short time after this, his patrol was ambushed by Byeshk trolls and was decimated. Aeranduil was the lone survivor, and even he did not escape without wounds. Aeranduil's hate of giants began that day. After his wounds healed, the elf proceeded to learn all he could about giants and how to hunt them.
Eventually, the elf's efforts led him away from his home in the Towering Wood. He travelled Khorvaire, gaining in experience and knowledge as he did. He visisted Aundair, and the lands of Thrane. The prevalence of the Church of the Silver Flame was not to his liking, though, and he left Thrane after only a short time. He visited the edges of the Mournlands simply to see the remains of Cyre with his own eyes. Aeranduil spent some time among the gnomes of Zilargo, and eventually found himself in the City of Sharn in Breland. It is here that Aeranduil hears the stories of the giant attacks on Xendrik, and knowing that he had a duty to put an end to his hated foes, the elf does not hesitate to answer the call for hale adventurers.

House Tharashk has made many inroads into Droaam, looking for mercenaries to fill out their ranks in their attempt to take away some of the moneys that get filtered through House Deneith. Over the past several decades they have acquired a large number of gnolls, orks, halforks, ogres, minotaurs and the like to fill out their staffs, because the monsters work exceedingly well as bodyguards and hunters throughout southwestern Khorvaire. The guild leaders have dealt with the many power groups within the monster country, including of course with the Daughters of Sora Kell, the Gnoll Brotherhood, and a most unlikely warlord... Lord Gorodan Ashlord.
Lord Gorodan is a fire giant that was exiled from Xen'drik twenty-four years ago (see ECS pg. 166). When he arrived on the shores of Khorvaire and made his way into Droaam, he very easily and quickly established a fiefdom within the land... seizing control of a clan of ogres and their goblin slaves. Over time he built up his small fiefdom into something of an independant power, bringing in several other races of monster to increase his population and his defenses. Despite all of his success, however, the fire giant was always filled with melancholy over his banishment from his homeland. To this day Lord Gorodan continues to want to find ways to get back to the much warmer climate of Xen'drik, but unfrotunately the fire giant clan from which he was banished still remains in power. Until that clan is removed, he is stuck in Droaam.
It was quite precipitous therefore when a House Tharashk representative by the name of Darvir d'Tharashk came to Lord Gorodan looking for additional mercenaries and warriors. The halfork House member told the giant of an excursion heading to Xen'drik to deal with a giant problem involving giants... a problem which just so happens to involve the self-same clan that Lord Gorodan was banished from. Needless to say, Lord Gorodan was quite excited to hear about this plan to possibly see to that clan's destruction, and thus he immediately offered Darvir and House Tharashk one of his most prized countrymen... an young halfork that was blessed by The Shadow.
When Yoggrith M'groth was born, his parents immediately knew something was odd about the babe. For the sun never shone on him. His body always appeared to be in shadow. Even when placed outside directly under the noonday sun, the infant always seemed dim and never, ever burned. To his parents, it was a miracle. A blessing from their god. And almost immediately the child was brought before Lord Gorodan. Several of the fire giant's priests tested the babe, seeking to discover this connection it had with the darkness. The overwhelming opinion was that Yoggrith was infused with the spirit of The Shadow. He was a conduit for The Shadow's hand. And for the next twenty years, this young halfork was raised within Lord Gorodan's church, learning to use the dark blessings he was given.
Yoggrith is a favored soul of The Shadow... and he works hard in His name, as well as the name of his Lord. His hands hold The Shadow's power... either taking life or giving life to those who deserve it. He can inflict or cure any wound to anyone he touches, and many have come to fear his power. However, the one thing that Yoggrith has shown as he has matured is that he does not use his power for no reason. He is dedicated to the will of his Lord. And thus, those that might fear him... need not... if they also are accomplishing the will of his fire giant Lord. And right now, if the fire giant wishes the halfork to travel with House Tharashk and a bunch of other people to the land of Xen'drik to deal with a fire giant problem... then Yoggrith will do so willingly. And despite the darkness that covers him, the others that travel with him need not fear. For they all are doing the will of his Lord.

Languages: Common, Giant, Burrowing Creatures Abilities: Low-Light Vision: A gnome can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. He retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions. Weapon Familiarity: Gnomes may treat gnome hooked hammers as martial weapons rather than exotic weapons. +2 racial bonus on saving throws against illusions. Add +1 to the Difficulty Class for all saving throws against illusion spells cast by gnomes. This adjustment stacks with those from similar effects. +1 racial bonus on attack rolls against kobolds and goblinoids. +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against monsters of the giant type. Any time a creature loses its Dexterity bonus (if any) to Armor Class, such as when it’s caught flat-footed, it loses its dodge bonus, too. Spell-Like Abilities: 1/day—speak with animals (burrowing mammal only, duration 1 minute). A gnome with a Charisma score of at least 10 also has the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—dancing lights, ghost sound, prestidigitation. Caster level 1st; save DC 10 + gnome’s Cha modifier + spell level. Gnome Ranger Substitution/Gnome Favored Enemy: Giant +3 Track Wild Empathy Combat Style: Two Weapon Favored Enemy: Giant +2 Crafty Fighter: +4 Dodge vs Giants, +2 Dodge vs. Large or bigger. Slippery: +3 Grapple Checks vs Large or Bigger. Can Move through squares of Large or Bigger creatures. Feats: Dodge Type: General Source: Player's Handbook v.3.5 You are adept at dodging blows. Prerequisite: Dex 13+ Benefit: During your action, you designate an opponent and receive a +1 dodge bonus to Armor Class against attacks from that opponent. You can select a new opponent on any action, Note: A condition that makes you lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes you lose dodge bonuses. Also, dodge bonuses (such as this one and a dwarf's racial bonus to dodge giants) stack with each other, unlike most other types of bonuses. Endurance Type: General Source: Player's Handbook v.3.5 You are capable of amazing feats of stamina. Benefit: Whenever you make a check for performing a physical action that extends over a period of time (running, swimming, holding your breath, and so on), you get a +4 bonus to the check. Giantbane Type: Tactical Source: Complete Warrior You are trained in fighting foes larger than you are. Prerequisite: Medium or smaller size, Tumble 5 ranks, base attack bonus +6. Benefit: The Giantbane feat enables the use of three tactical maneuvers. Duck Underneath: To use this maneuver, you must have taken a total defense action, then have been attacked by a foe at least two size categories larger than you. You gain a +4 dodge bonus to your Armor Class, which stacks with the bonus for total defense. If that foe misses you, on your next turn, as a free action, you may make a DC 15 Tumble check. If the check succeeds, you move immediately to any unoccupied square on the opposite side of the foe (having successfully ducked underneath your foe). If there is no unoccupied square on the opposite side of the foe or you fail the Tumble check, you remain in the square you are in and have failed to duck underneath your foe. Death from Below: To use this maneuver, you must have successfully used the duck underneath maneuver. You may make an immediate single attack against the foe you ducked underneath. That foe is treated as flat-footed, and you gain a +4 bonus on your attack roll. Climb Aboard: To use this maneuver, you must move adjacent to a foe at least two size categories larger than you. In the following round, you may make a DC 10 Climb check as a free action to clamber onto the creature's back or limbs (you move into one of the squares the creature occupies). The creature you're standing on takes a -4 penalty on attack rolls against you, because it can strike at you only awkwardly. If the creature moves during its action, you move along with it. The creature can try to shake you off by making a grapple check opposed by your Climb check. If the creature succeeds, you wind up in a random adjacent square. Special: A fighter may select Giantbane as one of his fighter bonus feats. Mobility Type: General Source: Player's Handbook v.3.5 You are skilled at dodging past opponents and avoiding blows. Prerequisite: Dex 13+, Dodge Benefit: You get a +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against attacks of opportunity caused when you move out of or within a threatened area. Note: A condition that makes you lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes you lose dodge bonuses. Also, dodge bonuses (such as this one and a dwarf's racial bonus to dodge giants) stack with each other, unlike most types of bonuses. Nemesis Type: Exalted Source: Book of Exalted Deeds You are the holy bane of creatures of a particular type. Prerequisite: Favored enemy class ability Benefit: Choose one of your favored enemies. You can sense the presence of creatures of this type within 60 feet, as well as pinpoint their exact location (distance and direction) relative to you. Normal barriers and obstructions do not block this supernatural ability, allowing you to sense the presence and location of creatures behind doors or walls, for example. This feat does nor allow you to see an invisible or hidden creature (although you can still discern its location). In addition to sensing the presence of your favored enemy you deal +1d6 points of damage on weapon attack rolls made against evil representatives of the favored enemy creature type. Special: You can choose this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you select this feat, it applies to a different favored enemy. Spring Attack Type: General Source: Player's Handbook v.3.5 You are trained in fast melee attacks and fancy footwork. Prerequisite: Dex 13+, Dodge, Mobility, base attack bonus +4 or higher Benefit: When using the attack action with a melee weapon, you can move both before and after the attack, provided that your total distance moved is not greater than your speed. Moving in this way does not provoke an attack of opportunity from the defender you attack. You can't use this feat if you are in heavy armor. Titan Fighting Type: Racial Source: Races of Stone You have been trained to fight larger creatures, and you are adept at dodging their attacks. Prerequisite: Dodge, racial dodge bonus to Armor Class against monsters of the giant type. Benefit: When you designate a creature at least one size category larger than you as the target of your Dodge feat, you apply your racial dodge bonus to Armor Class against monsters of the giant type against attacks from that opponent (regardless of its creature type) instead of the +1 bonus granted by the Dodge feat. Special: A fighter may select Titan Fighting as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Jaxel Wyldwalker was born to a fairly ordinary pair of Gnomes in Zilargo. One day while minding his parents shoppe a diplomat from House Sivis stumbled in. The Dragonmarked Noble had been poisoned, but before he died he gave Jaxel a scrolltube and bade him to do his best to bring it to Stormreach. This involved Jaxel in a world of intrigue and adventure. When all was said and done he delivered the scrolltube...unopened. So began a long term business relationship with House Sivis wherein the young gnome delivered "sensitive" packages to dangerous locations across the lands. He gained a reputation for being fearless and specialized in travelling giant infested lands.
Naturally, when several expeditions disappeared and Giants are rumoured to be involved...Who you going to call?

Myrmidon (Lvl 10)
Ipshivi, the spider
Ipshivi the spider
Alignment: CN (tending to CG)
Deity: the Traveler
Weight: 29 lbs
Description: Even by halfling standards, Ipshivi is just under average height, with a slender build. She usually keeps her hair trimmed rather short- very nearly a military buzz-cut, but she also usually wears a close-fitting hood, so it can be hard to tell. Her eyes are a rather plain, muddy brown, but they seem to glitter with fierce spirit- and they glow faintly red when her supernatural sight is active. While in the field, she prefers plain close-fitting travelers garb, of darkweave fabric- she keeps a close-fitting hood over her head, and hides her face behind an ink-dyed half mask of bone (unlikely to be mistaken for a true Talenta spirit-mask by anyone who has seen the real article). When relaxing, she dresses in Talenta tribal leathers- or, more accurately, a set of garb which looks like tribal clothing to someone who has never seen the real thing; in truth they are city-produced and much more comfortable than the real thing. She may also wear darkweave scholars robes while in town. She rarely carries any visible weapons, save for a small rapier slung in a sheath across her back, and she almost never uses that...
Personality: Ipshivi's primary motivation is curiousity- she loves finding out new things, or getting into places she isn't supposed to be. She is also tricky and sneaky by nature, and rather deliberately mysterious and "odd". One example of this is her typical clothing choices- originally it was picked so as to look like Talenta tribal garb, but this was before she had seen the real thing, so there are details which look "fake" to the trained eye; this is a deliberate choice- to anyone who doesn't know better, she looks like a fierce tribal halfling, and to those who do know better she looks like a mostly-convincing amateur, which may cause them to underestimate her true knowledge and ability... As an adventurer, Ipshivi is far more focused on scouting and spying than on combat- she hates getting into straight-up fights, preferring hit-and-run or sniper tactics in situations where combat cannot be entirely avoided. Like many halflings, she prefers to travel light- she uses a number of magical items to enhance her abilities, and tends to prefer the highest quality gear available.
