(OOC) Planescape: Intrigue

log in or register to remove this ad


Kachil'kcha is what them thri-kreen whisper 'bout 'n yer heads - a zik'chil, a "priest o' change." I got the dark on that bird.

Remember seein' her long before she got that reputation 'n them poorer wards as a killer-for-hire. A chirurgeon skilled in the art of mending flesh and brewing concoctions of wonder. But that ain't all; she's also a master tattooist, capable of etching designs of power and mystery into willing flesh.

Me protege Rusty over 'n the Market Ward say she made her reputation dealin' with the Bad Bloods in the Slags, but he's a recent Gatehouse escapee, so take his wig-wag for what it's worth.

For the truly desperate or the downright insane, she even offers a peculiar service - a barber, if ya can believe it. Now, I ain't one to judge, but to let her sharp blades near your head, well, that takes guts, that does.

Her chitin, pale and greenish, adorned with a dazzling constellation of gemstones and thri-kreen runes in precious metals, catches the eye like stars in the night sky. Dunno how she maintains her considerable carapace, but wouldn't mind chasing a few apples to find out. Aint a tout kickin' what ken a time she weren't around. An institution, that blood, but a rube all the same. Dunno where she's from, but it aint here, I can tell you that.

But them times long past now. Still calls kip in that second-rate whorehouse, but she's been working on somethin'. Healing, wheeling, dealing, what-have-you; comes and goes more frequently, more secretly. She's always been well-lanned 'mong the kreen, but now she's tugging on them strings, seeing' what'll hold.

-Trente, the Dark-Monger


PLAYER: DammitVictor


Thri-Kreen Rogue (Assassin) 3/Bard 2
Chaotic Evil

Kachil'kcha is what the other thri-kreen call-- in hushed tones-- a zik'chil or "priest of change"; her pale, greenish chitin is studded with a constellation of expensive gemstones and thri-kreen runes in precious metals. She has a modest reputation in the Lower Ward and the Hive as a killer-for-hire, a chirurgeon and apothecary, a tattooist and-- for the truly desperate or insane-- a barber.

STR 8 DEX 16 CON 12 INT 12 WIS 13 CHA 15

Proficient in Rogue weapons, DEX and INT saves, Arcana, Athletics, Deception, Investigation, Medicine, Perception, Stealth, thieves' tools, poisoner's kit, alchemist's supplies, jeweler's tools, and a horrifying miscellany of medical and "medical" implements.

+6 smallsword 1d6 +3/bonus: +6 smallsword 1d6
+6 light crossbow 1d6+3/bonus: +6 light crossbow 1d6
sneak attack +2d6

Cantrips: light, mending
Spells: cure wounds, healing word, dissonant whispers, thunderwave, feather fall

Equipment: two smallswords and too many daggers, one satchel strapped across her thorax and another on her left hip, with a bare minimum of her legitimate medical tools and a secret pocket for her thieves' tools and another secret pocket for her backup thieves' tools. She keeps her crossbows-- she has four hands, after all-- and the bulk of her scientific equipment in a "private" room she rents in a specialized brothel a convenient walking distance from both the Bleakers' sanitarium and the Hive.

She's a backup healer at best right now, and I certainly wouldn't begrudge anyone playing a more specialized one. I think she's an okay ranged striker right now, and that will definitely improve.

Crow? No, the person you're describing, my lovely little friend, is most assuredly the good Gentleman Valthor.

I'm sure of it. Not too tall. About my height. Sharp features adorn a long, gaunt, face. Fascinating dark eyes that twinkle and delight as the stars of Toril. Narrow nose that leads to that dignified goatee.

I don't know who does his hair, he's never let me know despite my pleas, but it's just magnificent child. I've never been able to achieve such a lustrous silver sheen with those deep dark roots. Always wears that peculiar pendant, will not tell me where he found that either.

And while a body such as his would usually find itself the host to a great dancer or troupe performer, the Gentleman has a little cutter in him. I've seen fine scars underneath that handsome cotton wrap of his. And I cannot say for sure what his staff is for, but I do know it is for protection, not that I have a mind to care for such tactical matters.

Yes. You must have something a bit peeled in your bone box, no offense. I can see I've described my captivating friend Valthor to your satisfaction but you still insist this creature is named The Crow?

Physical Description:
Valthor "The Crow" stands at an imposing 6 feet tall, his lean and muscular frame a testament to his dedication to martial discipline. His skin is weathered and bears the faint marks of old scars, hinting at a life of violence and intrigue. His piercing eyes, the color of ash, radiate an air of cold calculation, leaving others uneasy in his presence.

His jet-black hair, often tied in a topknot, contrasts sharply with his pale complexion. He keeps a closely-trimmed goatee, emphasizing his sharp jawline and high cheekbones. Valthor's countenance is a mask of inscrutability, rarely revealing his true emotions or intentions.

Clad in dark, form-fitting clothing that allows for swift and stealthy movements, Valthor seems to melt into the shadows as he moves. His attire is practical, adorned with hidden pockets and compartments for his tools of the trade, which include throwing darts and a quarterstaff that is occasionally adorned on his back diagonally.

A black iron pendant hangs around his neck, the engraved crow on it serving as a grim reminder of his dark heritage and the weight of his past transgressions. Despite his intimidating aura, there is a certain elegance to Valthor's movements.

  • Aliases: Unknown
  • Height: Approximately 6 feet (183 cm)
  • Weight: Slender build, estimated at 160 lbs (73 kg)
  • Hair Color: Not specified in available records
  • Eye Color: Maggot-white spheres with slitted pupils
  • Distinctive Features: Eyes resembling those of a fiend.
  • Race: Tiefling?
  • Sex: Male?

CRIMINAL RECORD:The suspect, SUBJECT 973A, is believed to be involved in criminal activities, primarily as an assassin for The Knights of the Cross Trade. The killings are swift and carried out with ruthless efficiency. Due to their skillful use of disguises and the complexity of their modus operandi, their identity remains difficult to ascertain.

WITNESSES AND TESTIMONIES:Numerous witness testimonies have been collected in relation to SUBJECT 973A. However, the accounts vary widely, and many witnesses have conflicting descriptions of the suspect. Some witnesses claim to have seen a figure with maggot-white eyes and slitted pupils, while others describe a person with entirely different features. A few witnesses even reported encountering a cloaked figure with no discernible face.


  1. Witness A:"...had a menacing aura, and their eyes... their eyes were unnatural, like those of a fiend. I'd never seen anything like it before."
  2. Witness B:"I saw someone with black hair, but I can't be sure about their eyes. They wore a cloak, and their face was hidden. I can't remember any other details."
  3. Witness C:"He appeared harmless, with no standout features. But when he attacked, he moved like a ghost, silent and swift."
  4. Witness D: "Pike off lobstah. Go kiss a succubus!"
  5. REDACTED: "I'm savvy tae 'is nature an' I kin tell ye more.. fer a price."

EVIDENCE: Physical evidence directly linking SUBJECT 973A to their crimes has been scarce. The few items recovered from crime scenes appear ordinary, providing no concrete leads.

MODUS OPERANDI: SUBJECT 973A displays a level of creativity in their murders, making use of various spells and strategic locations for their killings. The consistent element seems to be the removal of the victims' eyes, suggesting a potential ritualistic or symbolic purpose. Unclear whether all murders can be attributed to suspect versus emulators.

INTERROGATION NOTES:[No information available]

PLANAR TRAVEL RECORDS:[No specific records of planar travel have been found]

Caution is advised when approaching SUBJECT 973A, as their elusiveness and unpredictable nature pose significant challenges for apprehension and investigation.

Deep within the mining tunnel, I toiled as a humble axe-man, just another mundane day amidst the earthen walls. The soft glow of my lantern cast flickering shadows, and the air was thick with the scent of dust and sweat. Yet, an eerie feeling lingered, as if an unseen malevolence watched from the darkness. Unbeknownst to me, the Reaper itself had set its sights upon me. As a monster with a thirst for blood, it concealed its sinister intent beneath a veil of shadows, awaiting the opportune moment to strike.

It emerged suddenly, as Death tends to - from the shadows, its monstrous form ascending into the sky like a fearsome bird of prey. Frozen with terror, I found myself face-to-face with an entity that embodied malevolence itself. The world seemed to still as our eyes met, and a chilling silence hung in the air. In the blink of an eye, it lunged at me, wielding a wicked dagger with deadly intent. Its attack was swift and merciless, leaving me no time to comprehend the peril I was in. But fate had other plans.

Just as its dagger descended upon me, the mine trembled and quaked, an unexpected cave-in showering us in a storm of dust and debris. The tunnel collapsed around us, saving me from its deadly blow by the sheer force of nature's wrath. As the dust settled, I lay buried beneath the rubble, gasping for breath and dazed by the near brush with the Grim. My heart raced. I would live, for now.

Physical Description
Standing at 5 and a half feet, Grim is somewhat smaller and more slender than the average Half-Orc woman, but her grey-greenish skin and sharp fangs make her heritage unmistakable. She appears very nimble and hardly makes much sound as she walks, despite wearing studded leather reinforced with extra protective junk as her everyday clothes. A tattoo of sort is visible on her left arm, and a more acute observer might also notice that, while at first sight she seems to sport perfectly cared skin, a variety of scars and stitches are only partially concealed by the edges of her pieces of vestment. Her mannerisms are very calm and relaxed, but a hint of rage seems to glitter behind her eyes.


Ah, Orris!

That wretched offspring of a small-time player from that little-known house.

How amusing it was to witness the feeble attempts of such insignificant beings navigate Court politics. One cannot help but chuckle at the sheer audacity of those who dared to reach so high, only to be crushed by the weight of their own incompetence.

He fled like a common criminal. A dog.

He shall remain a laughable specter, forever destined to dance on the fringes of true nobility. The winds of destiny have decreed that he shall never rise above his base origins, forever condemned to grovel before those who were born with true grace and privilege. So let him plot and scheme, for in the end, Orris will find that the winds of fate are not so easily swayed by the whims of the petty.

  • Rapier (a slender, piercing melee weapon)
  • Shield (to bolster AC in combat)
In the elemental plane of air, upon a massive island continent floating in the infinite sky, Orris was the son of a minor noble, always embroiled in intricate politics. When a major player among the nobility moved to seize the throne, Orris' family backed the wrong side. When the coup failed, Orris' father was beheaded, and Orris was forced to flee.

Life at court has made him calculating and deceitful. He strives to regain a position of power and wealth and to lord it over people beneath him.

Orris is handsome or, more accurately, beautiful. He stands just under six feet tall, his hair is a hazy mist that flows with an unseen breeze and sometimes crackles with a charge. He is well-mannered, cultured, and dresses in tailored clothes, enjoying the finer things in life.

He travels with a small entourage of servants.

Hi everyone, when posting could you write your character's actions in the regular text color (white or black depending on whether you have ENWorld on Darkmode), and write dialogue as italicized in the following colors:


I'm using Darkmode, so these are all easy to see. If you are not using Darkmode, and one of these is difficult to read, let me know and I can change it.

Yellow is more difficult to read but I can use dark mode.
I noticed my stats and skills aren't accurate. I can more plainy explain my stat boosts either here or via DM. Up to you. That said, I may wiggle some things around a bit (like a boosting dex and lowering Charisma..I'm waffling.). Besides that, my character is completely finalized on the other thread.

PS: Sertheani is a jerk! :)

I can try changing it to Orange or something that isn’t too similar to Grim.

Also I realize the folly of posting character sheets - the players cant edit them..

How about you and others just repost your sheet here and make the edits you need.

Orris is handsome or, more accurately, beautiful. He stands just under six feet tall, his hair is a hazy mist that flows with an unseen breeze and sometimes crackles with a charge. He is well mannered, cultured and dresses in tailored clothes and enjoys the finer things in life. He has an easy manner about him and much in life makes him smile. Such mannerisms make him fine company but the unwary or unwitting could easily miss any slight against him - and slights come as easily to him as his smiles. The unwary or unwitting may find themselves at the end of his sword, not even aware what act caused such displeasure but, nonetheless, his smile being the last thing in this life that they see.
Divine Sense: detect undead, fiends and celestials within 60. Detect (un)holy objects or ground within 60 feet.
Lay on Hands: 5 hp/level of curing as an action. Or cure one or more disease with a cost of 5hp each as a single action
Fighting Style: Blessed Warrior: Toll the dead and Decompose
Divine Smite: Use spell slots to do extra d8 damages (depending on slot); Extra d8 damage against undead and fiends.
Divine Health: Immune to disease
Sacred Oath: Treachery
Extra Attack: 2 attacks/round

Channel Divinity​

  • Conjure Duplicate.As an action, you create a visual illusion of yourself that lasts for 1 minute, or until you lose your concentration (as if you were concentrating on a spell). The illusion appears in an unoccupied space of your choice that you can see within 30 feet of you. The illusion looks exactly like you; it is silent; it is your size, is insubstantial, and doesn’t occupy its space; and it is unaffected by attacks and damage. As a bonus action on your turn, you can move the illusion up to 30 feet to a space you can see, but the illusion must remain within 120 feet of you.
    • For the duration, you can cast spells as though you were in the illusion’s space, but you must use your own senses. Additionally, when both you and your illusion are within 5 feet of a creature that can see the illusion, you have advantage on attack rolls against that creature, given how uncanny the illusion is.
  • Poison Strike. You can use your Channel Divinity to make a weapon deadlier. As a bonus action, you touch one weapon or piece of ammunition and conjure a special poison on it. The poison lasts for 1 minute. The next time you hit a target with an attack using that weapon or ammunition, the target takes poison damage immediately after the attack. The poison damage equals 2d10 + your paladin level, or 20 + your paladin level if you had advantage on the attack roll.
  • Ability Score Increase. When determining your character’s ability scores, increase one score by 2 and increase a different score by 1, or increase three different scores by 1. You can't raise any of your scores above 20.
  • Creature Type. You are a Humanoid.
  • Size. You are Medium or Small. You choose the size when you select this race.
  • Speed. Your walking speed is 35 feet.
  • Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light and in darkness as if it were dim light. You discern colors in that darkness only as shades of gray.
  • Unending Breath. You can hold your breath indefinitely while you’re not incapacitated.
  • Lightning Resistance. You have resistance to lightning damage.
  • Mingle with the Wind. You know the Shocking Grasp cantrip. Starting at 3rd level, you can cast the Feather Fall spell with this trait, without requiring a material component. Starting at 5th level, you can also cast the Levitate spell with this trait, without requiring a material component. Once you cast Feather Fall or Levitate with this trait, you can’t cast that spell with it again until you finish a long rest. You can also cast either of those spells using any spell slots you have of the appropriate level.
    • Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells when you cast them with this trait (choose when you select this race).
  • Languages. Your character can speak, read, and write Common and one other language that you and your DM agree is appropriate for the character. The Player’s Handbook offers a list of languages to choose from. The DM is free to modify that list for a campaign.
