A man in his early thirties with long flowing black hair with one white streak at the temple. Vorian, when he sheds his scales is a lithe man with a very intense gaze that flits from thing to thing analyzing every situation. His heritage gave him few signs of the dragon, the most prominent being the scales around his eyes.

He prefers vibrant colors, with green and brown dominating the assembly.

Vorian is friendly enough, but often too literal in his understanding of expressions. He can be sociable when he tries due to his early day within noble circles, but he is more at home among soldiers and similar-minded groups that prefer clear and direct communication.

Damh is too flighty for a paladin, what are draconic gods? There is a song dragon after all :D
Jalivier it is.
Gods of the Dragons.png

"D" refers to the dragon gods listed in the Draconomicon. The two dragon deities noted with a "†" are homebrewed. Tamara might be a good choice to combine with Jalivier. Or you could go with Zelloran, since your PC is a dragontouched.

MetaVoid said:
Rules question: can I add charisma bonus to Rearguard's cape (marshal aura enhancing item)?
So, you want to combine the benefits of the Rearguard's Cape and a Cloak of Charisma? I have no problem with that as long as you properly combine the gp values from the two items.


I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
we know each other from high school before he went abroad.

As for the template, it is from my low(er) level marshal - I sent it as a starting point when he mentioned he would like to play one:

For the items, I think he's asking how to combine stuff. If so:
The Magic Item Compendium describes the cost of adding a 2nd magic property to a magic item (MIC 233) :
"In most cases, if the item is one that occupies a body slot, the cost of adding any additional ability to that item is 1-1/2 times the value of the added power (or the value of the added power plus 1/2 the value of the existing item, if the added power normally costs more than the existing item). "
so it would be 4000 (for charisma) + lower of (4000 / 2 OR cape value / 2)

And @MetaVoid:
  • your armor bonus from the husk is too high, it should be +9 (6 + 1/3 levels)
  • you don't have Draconic Heritage prerequisite for Draconic skin - apologies if you and knightfall agreed on it - you asked for a review
  • sanctify martial strike needs WFocus
  • your draco items aren't defined in terms of color (I realize this is not a complete character so I'll shut up now ;) )

Thank you for the rules and review
I assumed I got the draconic heritage with dragon touched - I mean the feat serves as a gateway to give you dragon blood type.
@Knightfall: I can replace combat reflexes if needed. And I'll have to change Sanctify if I cannot get weapon focus :(
I'll finish the equipment first

Where can I find Zelloran?


World of Kulan DM
Where can I find Zelloran?
The Adventurer, The Dragontouched, The Warrior

A white shield with a stylized dragon's head emblazoned on it (any color)
Home Plane: Material Plane
Godly Realm: Wanders
Alignment: True neutral
Portfolio: Half-dragons, dragontouched, warriors
Worshipers: Anarchs, corrupters, enforcers, half-dragons, incarnates, knights, kobolds, lizardfolk, sentinels, the dragontouched, those who live as adventurers
Cleric Alignments: N, LN, NG, CN, NE
Domains: Chaos, Dragon, Evil, Good, Law, War
Favored Weapon: Longsword (claw)

That is as much detail as I had on Zelloran (until now). The deity has never been used in any of my games before. But, he is a warrior god and was once a mortal being... likely he was born a half-dragon. As a neutral god, many of his followers respect (and/or follow) the Tenets of the Balance, but his priests usually aren't fanatical about it.

Besides half-dragons and the dragontouched, kobolds and lizardfolk also worship him, but his faith allows almost any warrior type (and racial origin) into their fold. True paladins and blackguards are the obvious exception, as are warrior types that must be one of the four extreme alignments (LG, LE, CG, CE). As you can see from the list of worshipers above, all of the neutral holy warriors have a place in his faith, so your character would be well respected by his followers.

On Harqual, Zelloran isn't considered to be associated with either of the two key pantheons (the North Gods and the Sword Gods), but he's not considered an Interloper God either. (He is a World God.) His faith is known across Kulan, but it varies from continent to continent and he's not a very powerful (or well known) god. His faith is strongest where there are communities of dragon-blooded peoples. (More details about that a bit later.)

He and Viccan are often thought to be brothers, as they were both elevated to godhood by Io as the same time. Part of the legend says they had a sister, as well, who became a 'higher being' instead of dragon deity, but no one seems to know her name. Viccan and Zelloran's priests will not speak it or even talk about it.

Updated my earlier post

What dragons make most sense to a) make equipment out of and b) to be agent of?
For worshippers of the dragon deities, making equipment out of dragon parts is considered taboo, if the faith is aligned with the Tenets. This would include the most devoted of Zelloran's faithful. Exceptions are made if a dragon has died in combat and agreed to let his remains be used in such a manner. Those that wish to gain such gear usually have to have a good reason or go on a quest to be granted such items.

EDIT: Exceptions are more often made for the dragon-blooded.

Ah, I assumed it would be expected equipment, maybe dragon bone equipment not (although rogue dragons get killed), but dragon hide armor/shields mention taking selected scales - this can be done without killing the dragons if a living dragon takes pains to collect them (or better yet multiple dragons)

I was thinking about taking a flaw "metal allergy" and thus making essentially all equipment non-metal.
I'm not dead-set on that - I'm taking suggestions for replacements

Zellorian sounds perfect. Longsword as a favorite weapon, War and Good domains (not that I will use them)

1. Is Draconic Heritage subsumed within Dragontouched?
2. Even if I replace the equipment, what would be the color of the patron dragon?

I corrected AC bonus. Took weapon focus instead of draconic aura (removes either healing potential or bonus to hit for all, giving only me +1 to hit). I changed the name to full draconic - essentially abandoning his 'human name' to become a dragon champion. Meaning not leader of dragons, but leader of their agents.

I would like to have some organization to belong to (something like protectors of balance, hunters of rogue dragons or some such)
