I'll be expecting 1 post/day on weekdays, weekends are flexible, if you can great, if not, no worries. I'll be running 1 combat round/day at the latest, if you haven't posted I'll NPC you or maybe you're character is overwhelmed by what's going on around him and spends a turn in full defence.

    Level: 6th

    # of PCs: 4-5

    Height: 5'-11"
    Weight: 195b
    Eyes: hazel
    Hair: brown with beard and moustache
    Skin: lightly tanned
    Appearance:An average human Drax's most keen feature is his flowing beard and
    moustaches which he is quite proud of(much like a dwarf). He has a
    small scar on his left cheek from a long ago fight that his beard
    covers a little.

    Personality: Draxton is open and honest and will give anyone the benefit of the
    doubt he tries not to judge to harshly by ones apperance and race. It's
    one of the reasons he no longer lives with the dwarves.

    Background: Draxton was part of a group from Helms priesthood that ventured into
    the remote kingdom of the dwarves to help bring Helm's blessing to some
    new construction. Drax fell in love with the dwarven way of live and stayed
    on sometime after the other priests had left. He was helpful in many was to
    the dwarven people but being a human finally called to him the wandering and
    call to adventure. So he has forged new friendships and comrades in arms with whom
    he is now with.

    Modus Operandi: Power up melee fighters and play medic after combats.
    He will stay away from a fight and use spiritual weapon
    and meld into stone.

    Lean and swarthy, sir Conrad has what may be referred to as cruelly dark good looks. Sir Conrad appears a true knight in his gleaming mithril plate armor with heraldry of the Order of the Seelenritter. His brown eyes occasionally flash a fiery red when he is feeling passionate and he can sport a glowing violet spike of psychic energy from his fist at will.

    Sir Conrad is completely devoted to his work of punishing the wicked and putting minions of evil to the sword. He feels very aristocratic and noble, giving him an air of superiority and an impression that he feels he knows more than others. He cheerfully works with good companions in his pursuit of evils, but he is harsh and pitiless, often willing to do what others are not for their shared cause. He knows many of his allies do not like him or his methods, but he smiles and continues doing his bloody work with them. He pushes some boundaries but mostly is a secure ally for those who work with him, the ironic and smiling devil you know and all that.


    Sir Conrad is a wandering knight errant of the Order of the Seelenritter, the soul knights. These mystic warriors dedicated to the Triad perfect body, mind, and soul to champion the cause of justice and combat supernatural evil. In truth Sir Conrad is an agent of the Lady Fierna, Archdevil Lord of the Fourth, patroness of pain, pleasure, and fire. He joined the Order to hunt down foes and rivals of the Lady's as well as those of her own who had lost her favor. Sir Conrad's grandfather, Sir Vanden Hagel, was a paladin knight within the order but was lost in a quest to hell fighting the Lady of flames. Sir Conrad's mother, a half-fiend was spawned by the Lady after that quest, and Sir Conrad bears some blessings of the Lady, his grandmother, within his blood. When he came of age Sir Conrad journeyed to the Order wearing his grandfather's armor and petitioned by right of the blood of his grandfather to apply and apprentice himself to become a Seelenritter knight. Divinations confirmed his noble ancestry as well as his claims that his blood was tainted and that he would detect as evil. His fiendish aspects are known by the order and disqualified him from becoming a paladin, but so long as he abides by certain strictures and serves the order, he need not fear them and has a measure of political protection against the huntings of good clerics and paladins who detect the evil "of the taint of his blood". In fact he has gone on missions for the Order to infiltrate evil cults then strike them down from within. His successes have been numerous and though he is often under suspicion from his order, he has been granted the status of knight errant to pursue evils at his discretion. This has placed him in a position to openly hunt down evils just as Grandma planned.

    Modus Operandi

    Sir Conrad is a melee combatant, ready to go in fast and take on powerful foes face to face. Inflicting and taking grievous wounds in his fight against evil is not something he shrinks from, he considers it his duty and calling.

    When not on campaign Sir Conrad spends a lot of time becoming debauched before journeying out in the field again. Not coincidentally, many cultists of Fierna work in brothels.

    Gender: male personality
    Race: Warforged ("Deathforged")
    Class: Dread Necromancer
    Alignment: LE


    Cold and methodically. Feels superior for his unaging qualities.

    Warforged are a kind of advanced "Gondsmen", that were forged for war purpose.
    They use a divine positive energy source to power them.

    Scavenger is the product of the experiment of the Red Wizard Zulcir of necromancy to corrupt the energy matrix to use negative energy.

    Getting innate arcane powers in this process, he travels the world as a secret agent of his master.

    Considering his constant state of disguise, no one really knows. Sohen generally does not reveal that he is about 24 years old.

    Sohen is quiet and introspective when himself, which is rarely. When others, his personality varies with the persona. Sohen seeks the secrets of others for his own purposes: They make excellent currency. The changeling has an unending hatred of hobgoblins and seeks to harm them (usually non-physically and indirectly, but will respond to violence) as opportunities present themselves.

    Sohen belonged to a group of changelings that were integrated into a human city. They were members of the underclass, but were not known for what they were. Things were rough, but such was their life.

    Sohen began to learn the "family" trade of thievery and deception at an early age, showing a penchant for magical deception. He was an up-and-comer when a group of well organized hobgoblin thugs began decimating Sohen's "family". Sohen, as far as he knows, was the last, barely escaping with his life.

    The changeling spent the next years getting his vengence. The hob's families, friends, business associates---but never the hobs themselves---suffered from calamity after calamity. Blackmail. Extortion. Imprisonment for crimes witnesses swore they committed. Some died mysteriously. Soon, the will and support structure of the hob gang was shattered, and the hobs vanished. No one knows who did this, but there were always rumors of a single mastermind behind it all. One they never found.

    Sohen now travels incognito, finding others that find his skills useful, each time a different persona. And if hobs were involved, all the better...

    Modus Operandi
    Sohen prefers infiltration, intelligence gathering, and blending in to direct violence. If he has to reveal himself, it is the last thing he want his target to see. In combat, he uses misdirection and his spells to control the battlefield, confusing and redirecting his foes as needed. A popular tactic is assuming the visage of the one of the enemy to sow confusion.

    inserted. Good to go.

    Name: Yorgan Stoutskull, aka Yorgan the bold, Yorgan of Hintershire, Yorgan of the Black Cork Guild.

    Gender: Male

    Race: Beasthide shifter

    Age: 22

    Class: Wilder (using RofEb shifter wilder level subs)

    Alignment: CN (with wide swings between acts of vile darkness, balanced by sincere magnanimity).

    Religion: Selune. Although kept fairly secret.

    Appearance: Tall and slender with copper skin, and brightly yellow serpentine eyes. Yorgan wears his long black hair tied tightly into a club at the nape of the neck. Tidy and fastidious, he dresses in the finest garments he can afford. He favors creamy white shirts and coal black overcoats and pants, with warmly yellow seed pearls sewn into the seams. He has an affinity for cold iron and darkwood in his personal items that seems to give these accouterments a fine richness of appearance.

    Personality: He tends to stand somewhat straighter and taller than most shifters, with an uncharacteristically bold and strong force of personality. Yorgan sees most people as means to personal wealth and power. Mistreated as a child, he displays a vengeful spirit toward those who would wrong children of any race. On occasion he has volunteered his time and resources in their aid and has been known to donate large sums of silver to orphanages and charities. He cares little for societal rules, but from time to time feels great pity and guilt regarding those whom he slays with the powers of his mind. Thus he expresses his remorse by helping those in need, especially children. Yorgan would probably make a good leader, but has not yet found a troupe within which he feels sufficiently comfortable to reveal his special gifts, and thus take charge.

    Background: An orphan, Yorgan was raised by the Church of the Lord of the Flames, Kossuth. It is presumed that his parents were slain by the church, but they could not bring themselves to abandon the young shifter and fostered him with an eye toward bringing him over to their side. This might have worked if cruel zealots within the church, racially intollerant of shifters, hadn't abused and mistreated him. As a result, he ran away from his foster family and set off on his own.

    Working as a waiter and cook in a fine restaurant just outside of Farvale, in the heart of the of Yeomanry wine country, he discovered he had a well developed nose and a knack for serving and making wines. Plagued by fierce headaches, he was forced to miss work with disturbing frequency, thus assuring that he would only ever become a second rate sommelier.

    Once, while cleaning up, he was accosted by toughs behind his place of employment. Searching out with his mind he released the tension growing within his temples as a violent thrust of psychic energy. Shocked and disturbed, he witnessed in horror as the young cutpurses' heads exploded! Disgusted and wary that he would be somehow imprisoned and inquisited for the deaths of the thieves, he fled his rather boring life to pursue a life of travel and adventure, eventually settling in Silverymoon. He closely guards the secret of his psychic power for fear that they will bring too much attention to past wickedness.

    Modus Operandi: Uses Thicken Skin and Dangersense to prepare himself outside of combat and improve his chances of survival. Thanks to powerstones of empathic transfer, he can share some of the burden of healing his comrades. When threatened in public, he typically will fire his crossbow or point a wand and manifest Energy Push, which most people interpret as some form of evocation or orb spell cast from the wand. However, when out of the public eye and strongly threatened, he either lashes out with a devastating Mind Thrust or conjures forth a creature of ectoplasm to defend him and smite his enemies (expanded knowledge: Astral Construct). In addition, he often uses his skill at Use Magic Device (taken cross class) to emulate the tactics of other spellcasters and to allay suspicions of his true psychic nature. A cunning liar, he also has gifts for spying and social interactions.

    Name: Father Byden Blaithe

    Gender: Male

    Race: Human

    Age: 39

    Class: Archivist 6

    Alignment: LN

    Religion: Mysta

    Appearence: A tall gaunt grey haired man wearing a stern expression as he gazes miopically at a scroll or tomb. Father Blaithe's eyes are lined and bloodshot ensuring that he appears even older than his years, though despite his apparent frailty his movements are vigorous. His robes are generally ink stained and somewhat unkempt in stark contrast to his neatly trimmed goatee and short cropped hair. He looks like a strict headmaster and tends to make those who speak with him for any length of time feel vaguely guilty.

    Personality: Father Blaithe cares very deeply about knowledge, the problem is that he cares about knowledge almost exclusively and will go to almost any end to get at it. A strategist he believes in planning and researching his foes and coming at them with as much information as possible. He takes extensive notes and is almost constantly buried in a book either reading or writing. Detatched is probably a good word for the Father who believes that emotions are unecessary and generally counter productive.

    Background: Having seen his father a village adept humbled by a Wizard as a boy Byden resolved to prove that divine power was superior to arcane. Disdainful of his father's ways the young Byden left and sought out a monestary of Mysta where he found a few kindred spirits in the librarians. Now his purposes have become blurred in his own mind and he primarily seeks to compile the ultimate collection of spells with which he believes he can humble any Wizard.

    Since leaving the monestary he has dealt with thieves, demon cults, and even the drow in his pursuit of lost and forbidden knowledge, all the while adding piece by piece to his Prayer books and consolidating his power.

    Modus Operandi: A careful planner Blaithe generally begins combat by taking some defensive measure; he then relies upon summoning or the use of spells such as spiritual weapon and spirit jaws to deal consistent damage whilst either utilizing produce flame or snake's swiftness to remain effective while conserving his magics.

    All the while he will advise his comrades, attempting - though often failing - not to seem condescending. Surprisingly with many rarer creatures this knowledge often helps find the elusive chinks in their armor.

    All the while he keeps an eye on his comrades health ready with a healing spell and a reprimand.

    HP: 40

    Saves: 7/3/8 (+ 2 vs Enchantment for Still Mind)

    AC: 17 (4 Armor, 2 Shield, 1 Dex), Touch 11, Flat-footed 16
