Whispers of the Dead
When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, echoes of those who have died cling to you. Whenever you finish a short or long rest, you can gain one skill or tool proficiency of your choice, as a ghostly presence shares its knowledge with you. You lose this proficiency when you use this feature to choose a different proficiency that you lack.
Wails from the Grave
At 3rd level, as you nudge someone closer to the grave, you can channel the power of death to harm someone else as well. Immediately after you deal your Sneak Attack damage to a creature on your turn, you can target a second creature that you can see within 30 feet of the first creature. Roll half the number of Sneak Attack dice for your level (round up), and the second creature takes necrotic damage equal to the roll's total, as wails of the dead sound around them for a moment.
You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and you regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

--- NOT GENERALLY SHARED ---
Lumrolur Vorhoc Bafflestone was born into a modest mining family in the depths of the Underdark, a place where darkness and danger were constant companions. He came into the world as the runt of the litter, a frail and weakling svirfneblin amidst two burly brothers and a spirited sister. From an early age, it was clear that Lumrolur lacked the physical prowess that his siblings possessed. He could walk with them whole day, he could avoid most dangerous terrain and react to dangers fastest. But he couldn't walk with miners pack nor push the cart as even his sister could.
Growing up in the close-knit community of Oji-di, a small trade town nestled deep within the tunnels of the Underdark, Lumrolur struggled to find his place. While his brothers toiled away in the treacherous mines, honing their mining skills and contributing to the prosperity of their family, Lumrolur often found himself succumbing to the allure of temptation. He would shirk his responsibilities and seek out the company of friends who led him down a darker path.
One fateful day, rather than attending to his duties, Lumrolur found himself drawn to a game of chance with his newfound companions. Unbeknownst to him, tragedy loomed on the horizon. As Lumrolur indulged in the thrill of gambling, the mine trembled with an eerie foreboding. He ran back to ring a bell, but the warning came too late, and the cataclysmic explosion that followed claimed the life of one of his brothers and left Lumrolur himself scarred for life, both physically and emotionally.
--- HARD TRAVEL ---
The ascent to the surface was grueling and perilous. Lumrolur faced countless dangers along the way, from treacherous creatures that lurked in the shadows to the harsh and unforgiving conditions of the Spine of the World. Yet, driven by an unyielding determination and the hope of finding a new purpose, he pressed on.
Against all odds, Lumrolur emerged from the depths of the Underdark, his body battered and scarred, a testament to the trials he had endured. He found himself standing on the frigid and desolate north side of the Spine of the World, in the realm known as Icewind Dale. The icy winds cut through his worn leather armor, serving as a harsh reminder of the challenges that lay ahead.
--- CURRENT STATE ---
Being small, unobtrusive and above all discreet, Vorr as Lumrolur called himself among humans who had trouble properly pronouncing his name, in the last five years he made a name for himself in certain circles. Recovering lost property, investigating mysteries, tracking lost people in the wilderness, he could do it all. For public services, he was a tracker, a guide between towns. He adapted to harsh winters and short summers...until one summer decided not to show up. Now, he's looking for the cause.
In the dimly lit tavern, a figure sat hunched over a wooden table, the weight of the world etched upon his wrinkled brow. Meet the unhappy rogue, a svirfneblin whose appearance spoke volumes of a life burdened by hardship and relentless purpose.
His gray skin, weathered by the unforgiving depths of the Underdark, stood in stark contrast to the gleam of his silver eyes that burned with a steely resolve. Completely bald, not a strand of hair adorned his head save for an unkempt, white mustache that drooped down and blended seamlessly into a small, scruffy beard. Long, black scar cut a path across his right cheek, disfigur5ign
Dressed in dark leather armor that hugged his diminutive form, he wore his battle-worn attire with a sense of grim determination. The leather backpack he carried seemed to sag under the weight of his convictions, each buckle and strap a symbol of his unwavering commitment. A matching leather cape, its edges frayed from countless encounters, draped over his shoulders, shrouding him in an aura of relentless purpose.
Yet, it was the shawl that commanded attention—a simple fabric, dull and unassuming, yet meticulously arranged to conceal his face when the need for action arose. With this shawl pulled up, it masked his features, transforming him into an enigma of justice, his true intentions hidden from those who would oppose him.
As he sat there, his gaze focused and unyielding, one could see the weight he carried, the burden of a life dedicated to eradicating evil from the world. The lines etched upon his face told tales of battles fought, sacrifices made, and the relentless pursuit of justice. Unbeknownst to those around him, he yearned for a world free from the shackles of darkness, where the innocent could flourish and the malevolent would cower.
In this unhappy rogue, one could glimpse the indomitable spirit forged through adversity, the unyielding determination woven into every fiber of his being. With a heart hardened but unbroken, he navigated a world where trust came sparingly, where his path was illuminated by the unwavering flame of his mission—a mission to vanquish evil, to protect the vulnerable, and to ensure that darkness would forever bow before the light of justice.
Appearance: Dark hair, blue eyes, slightly overweight, wears cowboy garb.
I’m one of Lady Luck’s favored. Anything I try is destined to succeed.
Every copper wants to be a Silver. Each bet is an opportunity.
Knowledge: Knowledge is power, and knowing which horse to back is the key to success.
A patron once fronted me money in exchange for a percentage of my winnings. I owe them a debt of gratitude. And a lot of cash.
I don’t know when to quit, especially when everyone is telling me to.

I can also gain access to powerful political figures through the guild, as long as I'm in good standing and the guild is paid enough.
Magical Tinkering:As an action, I use thieves/artisan's tools to give 1 property to a nonmagical tiny object:
• Emit light (5-ft radius bright light, equal dim), an odor, or a nonverbal sound
• Static visual effect on one surface, or emit a 6-second recorded message when tapped
If I instill a property in more objects than I can have active, the oldest loses its property
Spellcasting: I can cast prepared artificer cantrips/spells, using Intelligence as my spellcasting ability
To cast, I must use thieves' or artisan's tools I'm proficient with as a spellcasting focus
I can cast my prepared artificer spells as rituals if they have the ritual tag
Whenever I gain an artificer level, I can swap one artificer cantrip I know for another

It can take reactions and move on its turn even if I don't command it. I can't have multiple at once; Select "Steel Defender" on a companion page for its stats
Languages: understands the languages of its creator but can't speak.
Creator: The steel defender obeys the commands of its creator and shares its proficiency bonus. It takes its turn immediately after its creator, on the same initiative count. It can move and take reactions on its own, but only takes the Dodge action on its turn unless its creator takes a bonus action to command it to take another action. If its creator is incapacitated, it can take any action, not just Dodge.
Vigilant: The defender can't be surprised.
Repair (3/Day): As an action, the steel defender restores 2d8 + its proficiency bonus in HP to itself or to one construct or object within 5 ft of it.
Deflect Attack (reaction): As a reaction, the steel defender imposes disadvantage on the attack roll of one creature it can see that is within 5 ft of it, provided the attack roll is against a creature other than the defender.
Healing: The steel defender regains 2d6 HP whenever the Mending spell is cast on it. Its HP total is equal to 2 + its creator's artificer level times five + its creator's Int mod. Within an hour of its death, while within 5 ft, its creator can take an action to use smith's tools and expend a spell slot to have it return to full HP after 1 minute. If its creator dies, the steel defender also perishes.

He is adorned in snow-white, coarse, and bristly fur, with a padded coif shielding his ears. Once agile and spry, he has now gained some weight, giving him a slightly clumsy demeanour. His eyes bear a shade of green, occasionally glinting with an icy blue hue.
A large oval shield hangs on his back, crafted from sturdy wickerwork. His spear boasts a gleaming white wooden shaft, its marbled green adamantine tip unbelievably sharp. Hanging from his belt are the tools of a hurdler, a skilled woodsman adept at constructing simple structures from sticks.
Hunching as he walks, his scale mail clinks with unoiled and rusted links, and he avoids making eye contact with others. However, when consumed by intoxication, which has become increasingly frequent lately, he stands taller and becomes more outspoken.
Russet is renowned as a member of “The Early Spring” band of outlaws in Fireshear. He was the right hand man of his childhood friend, Thornley, the charismatic leader. Their mission was to assist impoverished miners by intercepting wealthy caravans and redistributing the goods to those in need. A master tactician and fearless fighter, Russet's infectious positivity uplifted both the gang and the city's inhabitants.
During a daring escape from pursuing bounty hunters, Russet found himself stranded in the treacherous mountains during winter, without supplies or warm clothes. Despite the odds, he miraculously returned the next day, his once brown-orange fur now transformed to a snowy white hue and carrying a gleaming adamantine spear. The details of his transformation remained shrouded in mystery, fuelling rumours of miracles, eldritch pacts and invincibility. Consequently, he became a figure of both fear and suspicion among the citizens.
However, Russet's reputation now lies shattered. He betrayed his childhood friend Thornley and other gang leaders, turning them over to the wealthy families of the city in exchange for his freedom. The motives behind his betrayal remain unknown, yet many attribute it to his transformation and consider his white fur a sign of untrustworthiness.
Since then, Russet has drifted from tavern to tavern, drowning his guilt-ridden conscience. He feels an undeniable pull towards the northern cold. Burdened by self-pity and laced with sarcasm, he seeks solace. Perhaps another PC will recognize him, harboring caution due to his past treachery, but also recognizing his current misfortune. They may attempt to help him overcome his vices and utilize his formidable skills.

Coming through the snow, over the glacier, the first thing you see is the light in her hand. It is the beacon that lets you know that Corse has arrived. Perhaps she brings news for you, a token from a loved one, or a book you had asked for the last time she was through. She might be guiding an ambitious wizard or a pair of monks, confident that she can double her fee in a few days’ time to lead them back again.
Whatever the case, most of you will make her welcome. She brings the news, and if she doesn't she tells a story, or picks up a musical instrument you have lying about; somehow she can always seem to pick out a tune that reminds you of younger times.
She notices things, too -- tiny details in the stories she tells betray that she might have once aspired to be a poet. She'll be drinking at a table, and, then, you look at her, and she's staring back at you, neck craned around, eyes wide, taking you in. It can be attractive, sure; it might leave you feeling she wants to swallow you whole.
Fieldwalker Corse is not from here—you don’t know her people, and she doesn’t talk about them. But she has made herself familiar, and she has become a welcome sight at many of the waystations across these mountains. Her laugh is infectious, and she radiates a trustworthiness, regardless of whose company she keeps. She wears armor that was given to her by a former lover, she might admit, and carries no weapons other than her walking stick

Secret Midwinter Child
Auril the Frostmaiden has blessed me, for I was born on the Midwinter holiday. I have resistance to cold damage. However, certain towns offering sacrifices to the Frostmaiden favor sacrificing Midwinter children.
Aric Thornbloom was born into yhe Vunarg Clan, a small goblin clan living on the outskirts of a cold mountain. It had been punted around by bugbears, orcs, and other goblin tribes for years, eventually planning a mass migration to the plains. However, tragedy struck when he was just a youngling. A rival tribe attacked their encampment, seeking to claim their territory and resources. Aric's clan was overwhelmed and wiped out, leaving him as the sole survivor.
Alone in the wilderness, Aric found solace and companionship among the animals and plants that inhabited the forest. He seemed unnaturally tolerant of the cold, which allowed him to survive in the bitter persistent winter. He developed a deep connection with nature, learning to survive and thrive alongside his newfound allies. As he grew, Aric realized that he possessed an innate affinity for primal magic, feeling the ebb and flow of natural energies coursing through his veins.
Aric's newfound abilities did not go unnoticed. His acts of protecting the local flora and fauna caught the attention of a wise and reclusive druid, a talented wildshaper named Maeth "the Maverick", who dwelled deep within the heart of the forest. Recognizing Aric's potential, the druid took him under his wing and began training him in the ancient ways of the druids.
Ten days ago, Aric’s friend, Morin Littlebucket a halfling trapper from Easthaven was murdered. This halfling was a nice companion and would tell Aric many stories. Aric promised himself he would bring justice to his friend.
