Against the Giants PBP

OOC Discussion Thread

Giants have been raiding civilized lands in bands, with giants of different sorts in these marauding groups. Death and destruction have been laid heavily upon every place these monsters have visited. This has caused great anger in high places, for life and property loss means failure of the vows of noble rulers to protect the life and goods of each and every subject—and possible lean times for the rulers as well as the ruled. Therefore, a party of the bravest and most powerful adventurers has been assembled and given the charge to punish the miscreant giants.

These are the brave souls who have answered the call:

Appearance:
If you don't look very closely during the day, Doc appears to be a normal human in his late 20s or early 30s, with the rugged and sun-swept features of someone who has been outside too much. Piercing blue eyes which are just a little too cold, and blonde hair which doesn't quite seem to move as much as it should in the wind trapped under an always-present wide-brimmed hat.

But in the darkness, or in the shadows, if you catch Doc just right, you see that he isn't human. The taut and weathered skin seems translucent over a skeleton, and the the eyes are naught more than dancing pools of flame over a deep abyss of coal-blackness.

Background: Doomed Wastrel (Custom Haunted One)
Two proficiencies (intimidation, persuasion)
Two tool (artisan- tinkers, gambling)

Doomed Wastrel Feature- the Doomed and the Drunk
Those who look into Doc’s eyes can see that he has faced unimaginable horror and that he is no stranger to the darkness and the bottle. Though they might fear Doc, or even pity him, commoners will extend Doc every courtesy and do their utmost to help him- or at least buy him a drink. Unless Doc has shown himself to be a danger to them, they will even take up arms to fight alongside Doc, should he find himself facing an enemy alone.

Backstory:
Doc used to be a human. Of that … he is fairly sure. Sometimes, when the voices of the dead aren’t making demands, he has a vague recollection that he traveled around the lands in a small wagon, offering his services to common people. Doc thinks those memories are real; his fingers still know how to fix any item, heck, he can still fix up a person if he needs to.

But every time those memories start to form, he hears the cries of the dead again. Some of those voices, he thinks he remembers. Doc flips out his deck of cards, and see the faces … yes, those are the dead, the people Doc has killed. But there are others in his head. There always more- whispers, screams, begging cries.

Doc takes another shot of the hardest stuff this disreputable place has. Yes … that dulls the voices of the dead if only for a second. He’s no longer even sure if he is alive or dead or even where he is. He seems to recall a horrible rending of his flesh, of his lungs … is he just another voice in someone else’s head? But then Doc recalls that he made a deal to come back. He’s here for a reason. Doc was told that he wouldn’t be weak any more, wouldn’t have to worry about the consumption, he just had to promise …

What? What did Doc promise? Doc stares at his cards, and at the bottle of spirits, at the amulet and the periapt that ensure he will keep roaming this plane. What did he promise? As he drinks more with one hand, a ghostly apparition forms in the other hand. A dark reminder, a pistol given to him by the Nameless Sheriff in exchange for his promise. Doc swallowed a slug of the hard stuff as he stared at the pistol in his hand. Then he looked up and saw the horse rustler, the black hat, enter the bar through the swinging doors. Without another thought, Doc shot before the rustler even he had his hand halfway to his holster. Doc saw the shocked look in the rustler's eyes as he fell to the floor, no longer moving.

Doc remembered, now. He promised death.

And so it was ... an existence, forever on a loop, on the Mesa of Madness, a twilight existence of drinking, and gambling, and killing, repeated over and over again. Doc was offering out justice of the roughest sort, to the extent that justice existed in this place. Until one ceaseless twilight, the loop stopped suddenly. Doc felt the pull of the Nameless Sheriff and suddenly found himself ... elsewhere? This was new. There were others around, but not like him. Filled with some force ... some kind of ... life. And there was a sun! A sun that went up, and came down, not just the endless twilight of before.

But what wasn't new was that same calling, that same pull by the Nameless Sheriff that Doc felt deep within. For vengeance, or justice, or maybe just death.

Doc pulled the brim of his hat down low over his eyes and began walking. Somewhere out there, cards needed playin'. Somewhere out there, a bottle needed drinkin'.

Somewhere out there, a person needed killin'.

Trait: I don’t talk about the thing that torments me. I’d rather not burden others with my curse.
Ideal: I have a dark calling that puts me above the law.
Bond: There’s evil in me, I can feel it. It must never be set free.
Flaw: I have an addiction. Although I don’t need to drink to survive, I can’t stop because only drinking keeps the dead at bay … and I can never drink enough.

Before they were destroyed on the Eastern front, during the Dao-Demon War under the leadership of Hub Despitt, the Coming Storm was an elite aerial mercentary unit known for getting the job done. Not everyone agreed with them of course, and the salaries the unit commanded were high even though none of its members ever seemed to have two gold to rub together. Nevertheless, even the rumour that the Coming Storm had been recruited to this side or that of a given conflict was enough to sway popular opinion in favour of those who recruited them. They looked good in their uniforms, and their reputation for aerial commando missions had been turned into many narratives, sung in taverns or told around campfires, for decades.

The Coming Storm held no national loyalties; their obligations surpassed the rules of kings or of councils, and they turned down many more tickets than they accepted. And they always won.

That was twelve years ago, when they finally entered a conflict from which not a soldier returned. Well, that's not quite true. Individuals emerged in the coming years. Some had no memories of where they had been, or perhaps they had just decided to keep the secrets to themselves. The Colonel was one of these. He had been a medic, a junior officer serving with the brigade. His present rank, for those curious enough to pursue the matter, was a field commission, given him as their numbers dwindled. But he wears his insignia proudly, even if he doesn't want to answer your questions just now.

He has a name, and yes, he's the medic you've read about who would run across battle lines in the pre-dawn light to steal a kiss from his One True Love, and he wears her ring around his neck to this day, but that's not a story he shares freely. To you, he's the Colonel. It's a good enough name for the greengrocer and for his tavernkeeper. He incurs no debts, and is always polite, if perhaps a bit gruff.

There are others who wear the uniform of the Coming Storm, and sometimes they meet, as the Colonel did with Captain Moranne on the Bridge of Bones outside Perniece. They saw each other as they approached, both still in the uniform of a sompany that no longer existed. They stopped at a respectable distance. Some might remember Morainne as a bright-eyed Sergeant, back in the days when she still would sing and smile. In the dry air the lightning in the Colonel's palms sparked, so his hair stood on end. If you were watching from below, you'd notice that neither had a weapon on them, though the captain had an empty scabbard. She saluted him, the captain did. And he returned the salute, but said nothing as the two passed each other, each holding their secrets of a memory shared, that they wished they could shed. The bridge's sighing whispers echoed the tok-tok-tok of their footfalls as the two passed each other and they continued into the mist.

Born into a poor family, I was expected to follow in my father’s footsteps and scrounge junk to sell so that we could survive. For years that’s exactly what I did, but my mind and heart just weren’t in it. I would day dream about being the hero with the sword that kept the village safe. About being a mighty wizard whose magic destroyed legions of invaders. Even about stealing a few large gems from a mansion and retiring. Anything but continuing to search alleys and gutters.

My break came one day as I walked down an alley looking for anything of value. Through a window I saw a group of young men practicing with wooden swords. For weeks I would find excuses to end up in that alley so I could watch the students train, my mind working overtime with dreams of a sword in my hand as I fought monsters. I was shaken out of one of my day dreams by the voice of the sword master calling out to me. He placed a wooden sword in my hand and asked me to strike at him with it. I didn’t have the reflexes or strength that some of the other students did, but I had natural talent and the town needed defenders. My path was set.

Weeks turned into months. I was taught how to calm my mind and focus. How to breathe properly so as to conserve energy. How to fight. Well before my training ended, I was better than any of the other students. However, I had also begun to notice strange things. Sometimes when I thought about where I wanted to place my sword, it would move faster and harder than I intended. Sometimes when I reached for my sword it would shake and rattle for a second as if it wanted to be in my hand. I was thrown off by these incidents and the techniques for calming my mind started failing me. I knew what I had to do.

A few days later I walked out of town with my sword and a few other things I had packed, and headed out into the wilderness. Far from town I found a small cave in a wood and made it my home. For the next few years I focused inward, trying to understand what was going on inside of my mind. Slowly but surely I learned how to move objects with but a thought. How to use my mind to propel weapons I used with such force that they hit harder than the strongest man could swing. Even how to propel myself if need be. Yet still I knew there was more.

Unfortunately, that more was never to be. While I was out training I heard the sound of many feet marching through the woods. Quietly I snuck closer until I could see them. There were at least a hundred furry humanlike things with dog heads(Gnolls). One of them was barking orders at the others in a language that I didn’t understand, but as I focused on him, trying to understand what he said, his thoughts became clear to me. They were headed to raid my home. Startled I lost my focus and thoughts fled. When they were far enough away that I could safely move, I quickly headed home by paths known only to me.

I arrived back home a full half day ahead of the creatures and gave warning. Adding to the regular defenders were militia called to defend the town, and myself. The battle was short and fierce, but because we had time to prepare, the would be raiders were driven back with great losses. The dead on our side were few. The town celebrated me for a week. The feasting and drink were better than any I had ever tasted in my life. The poor don’t get food like this. Hermits alone in the woods eat what they can find. I like it! Too much. Perhaps I would have learned deeper secrets had I returned to the cave, but my new life as a hero of my town was too tempting to give up. I will have to find another path to those secrets.



Personality Trait: I am utterly serene, even in the face of disaster.
Ideal: If you know yourself, there’s nothing left to know.
Bond: I am still seeking the enlightenment that I pursued in my seclusion.
Flaw: Now that I’ve returned to the world, I enjoy its delights a bit too much.

Components: V, S, M (specially marked sticks, bones, or similar tokens worth at least 25 gp)
Duration: Instantaneous
By casting gem-inlaid sticks, rolling dragon bones, laying out ornate cards, or employing some other divining tool, you receive an omen from an otherworldly entity about the results of a specific course of action that you plan to take within the next 30 minutes. The DM chooses from the following possible omens:
  • Weal, for good results
  • Woe, for bad results
  • Weal and woe, for both good and bad results
  • Nothing, for results that aren’t especially good or bad
The spell doesn’t take into account any possible circumstances that might change the outcome, such as the casting of additional spells or the loss or gain of a companion. If you cast the spell two or more times before completing your next long rest, there is a cumulative 25 percent chance for each casting after the first that you get a random reading. The DM makes this roll in secret.

Banishment
4th-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 60 feet
Components: V, S, M (an item distasteful to the target)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
You attempt to send one creature that you can see within range to another place of existence. The target must succeed on a Charisma saving throw or be banished.
If the target is native to the plane of existence you’re on, you banish the target to a harmless demiplane. While there, the target is incapacitated. The target remains there until the spell ends, at which point the target reappears in the space it left or in the nearest unoccupied space if that space is occupied.
If the target is native to a different plane of existence that the one you’re on, the target is banished with a faint popping noise, returning to its home plane. If the spell ends before 1 minute has passed, the target reappears in the space it left or in the nearest unoccupied space if that space is occupied. Otherwise, the target doesn’t return.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 4th.

Chill Touch
Necromancy cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 round
You create a ghostly, skeletal hand in the space of a creature within range. Make a ranged spell attack against the creature to assail it with the chill of the grave. On a hit, the target takes 1d8 necrotic damage, and it can’t regain hit points until the start of your next turn. Until then, the hand clings to the target. If you hit an undead target, it also has disadvantage on attack rolls against you until the end of your next turn.
At Higher Levels. This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 5th level (2d8), 11th level (3d8), and 17th level (4d8).

Clairvoyance
3rd-level divination
Casting Time: 10 minutes
Range: 1 mile
Components: V, S, M (a focus worth at least 100 gp, either a jeweled horn for hearing or a glass eye for seeing)
Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes
You create an invisible sensor within range in a location familiar to you (a place you have visited or seen before) or in an obvious location that is unfamiliar to you (such as behind a door, around a corner, or in a grove of trees). The sensor remains in place for the duration, and it can’t be attacked or otherwise interacted with.
When you cast the spell, you choose seeing or hearing. You can use the chosen sense through the sensor as if you were in its space. As your action, you can switch between seeing and hearing. A creature that can see the sensor (such as a creature benefitting from see invisibility or truesight) sees a luminous, intangible orb about the size of your fist.

Detect Magic
1st-level divination (ritual)
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes
For the duration, you sense the presence of magic within 30 feet of you. If you sense magic in this way, you can use your action to see a faint aura around any visible creature or object in the area that bears magic, and you learn its school of magic, if any.
The spell can penetrate most barriers, but is blocked by 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt.

Detect Thoughts
2nd-level divination
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (a copper piece)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
For the duration, you can read the thoughts of certain creatures. When you cast the spell and as your action on each turn until the spell ends, you can focus your mind on any one creature that you can see within 30 feet of you. If the creature you choose has an Intelligence of 3 or lower or doesn’t speak any language, the creature is unaffected.
You initially learn the surface thoughts of the creature—what is most on its mind in that moment. As an action, you can either shift your attention to another creature’s thoughts or attempt to probe deeper into the same creature’s mind. If you probe deeper, the target must make a Wisdom saving throw. If it fails, you gain insight into its reasoning (if any), its emotional state, and something that looms large in its mind (such as something it worries over, loves, or hates). If it succeeds, the spell ends. Either way, the target knows that you are probing into its mind, and unless you shift your attention to another creature’s thoughts, the creature can use its action on its turn to make an Intelligence check contested by your Intelligence check; if it succeeds, the spell ends.
Questions verbally directed at the target creature naturally shape the course of its thoughts, so this spell is particularly effective as part of an interrogation.
You can also use this spell to detect the presence of thinking creatures you can’t see. When you cast the spell or as your action during the duration, you can search for thoughts within 30 feet of you. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 2 feet of rock, 2 inches of any metal other than lead, or a thin sheet of lead blocks you. You can’t detect a creature with an Intelligence of 3 or lower or one that doesn’t speak any language.
Once you detect the presence of a creature in this way, you can read its thoughts for the rest of the duration as described above, even if you can’t see it, but it must still be within range.

Dispel Magic
3rd-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
Choose any creature, object, or magical effect within range. Any spell of 3rd level or lower on the target ends. For each spell of 4th level or higher on the target, make an ability check using your spellcasting ability. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level. On a successful check, the spell ends.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, you automatically end the effects of a spell on the target if the spell’s level is equal to or less than the level of the spell slot you used.

Enemies Abound (XGtE)
3rd-level enchantment
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
You reach into the mind of one creature you can see and force it to make an Intelligence saving throw. A creature automatically succeeds if it is immune to being frightened. On a failed save, the target loses the ability to distinguish friend from foe, regarding all creatures it can see as enemies until the spell ends. Each time the target takes damage, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.
Whenever the affected creature chooses another creature as a target, it must choose the target at random from among the creatures it can see within range of the attack, spell, or other ability it’s using. If an enemy provokes an opportunity attack from the affected creature, the creature must make that attack if it is able to.

Enhance Ability
2nd-level transmutation
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (fur or a feather from a beast)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour
You touch a creature and bestow upon it a magical enhancement. Choose one of the following effects; the target gains the effect until the spell ends.
  • Bear’s Endurance. The target has advantage on Constitution checks. It also gains 2d6 temporary hit points, which are lost when the spell ends.
  • Bull’s Strength. The target has advantage on Strength checks, and their carrying capacity doubles.
  • Cat’s Grace. The target has advantage on Dexterity checks. It also doesn’t take damage from falling 20 feet or less if it isn’t incapacitated.
  • Eagle’s Splendor. The target has advantage on Charisma checks.
  • Fox’s Cunning. The target has advantage on Intelligence checks.
  • Owl’s Wisdom. The target has advantage on Wisdom checks.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 2nd.

Find Familiar
1st-level conjuration (ritual)
Casting Time: 1 hour
Range: 10 feet
Components: V, S, M (10 gp worth of charcoal, incense, and herbs that must be consumed by fire in a brass brazier)
Duration: Instantaneous
You gain the service of a familiar, a spirit that takes an animal form you choose: bat, cat, crab, frog (toad), hawk, lizard, octopus, owl, poisonous snake, fish (quipper), rat, raven, sea horse, spider, or weasel. Appearing in an unoccupied space within range, the familiar has the statistics of the chosen form, though it is a celestial, fey, or fiend (your choice) instead of a beast.
Your familiar acts independently of you, but it always obeys your commands. In combat, it rolls its own initiative and acts on its own turn. A familiar can’t attack, but it can take other actions as normal.
When the familiar drops to 0 hit points, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form. It reappears after you cast this spell again. As an action, you can temporarily dismiss your familiar to a pocket dimension. Alternatively, you can dismiss it forever. As an action while it is temporarily dismissed, you can cause it to reappear in any unoccupied space within 30 feet of you. Whenever the familiar drops to 0 hit points or disappears into the pocket dimension, it leaves behind in its space anything it was wearing or carrying.
While your familiar is within 100 feet of you, you can communicate with it telepathically. Additionally, as an action, you can see through your familiar’s eyes and hear what it hears until the start of your next turn, gaining the benefits of any special senses that the familiar has. During this time, you are deaf and blind with regard to your own senses.
You can’t have more than one familiar at a time. If you cast this spell while you already have a familiar, you instead cause it to adopt a new form. Choose one of the forms from the above list. Your familiar transforms into the chosen creature.
Finally, when you cast a spell with a range of touch, your familiar can deliver the spell as if it had cast the spell. Your familiar must be within 100 feet of you, and it must use its reaction to deliver the spell when you cast it. If the spell requires an attack roll, you use your attack modifier for the roll.

Fireball
3rd-level evocation
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 150 feet
Components: V, S, M (a tiny ball of bat guano and sulfur)
Duration: Instantaneous
A bright streak flashes from your pointing finger to a point you choose within range then blossoms with a low roar into an explosion of flame. Each creature in a 20-foot radius must make a Dexterity saving throw. A target takes 8d6 fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. The fire spreads around corners. It ignites flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.

Fire Bolt
Evocation cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
You hurl a mote of fire at a creature or object within range. Make a ranged spell attack against the target. On a hit, the target takes 1d10 fire damage. A flammable object hit by this spell ignites if it isn’t being worn or carried.
At Higher Levels. This spell’s damage increases by 1d10 when you reach 5th level (2d10), 11th level (3d10), and 17th level (4d10).

Greater Invisibility
4th-level illusion
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
You or a creature you touch becomes invisible until the spell ends. Anything the target is wearing or carrying is invisible as long as it is on the target’s person.

Hold Monster
5th-level enchantment
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 90 feet
Components: V, S, M (a small, straight piece of iron)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
Choose a creature that you can see within range. The target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or be paralyzed for the duration. This spell has no effect on undead. At the end of each of its turns, the target can make another Wisdom saving throw. On a success, the spell ends on the target.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 5th. The creatures must be within 30 feet of each other when you target them.

Invisibility
2nd-level illusion
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (an eyelash encased in gum arabic)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour
A creature you touch becomes invisible until the spell ends. Anything the target is wearing or carrying is invisible as long as it is on the target’s person. The spell ends for a target that attacks or casts a spell.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 2nd.

Mage Armor
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a piece of cured leather)
Duration: 8 hours
You touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and a protective magical force surrounds it until the spell ends. The target’s base AC becomes 13 + its Dexterity modifier. The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell as an action.

Mage Hand
Conjuration cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 minute
A spectral, floating hand appears at a point you choose within range. The hand lasts for the duration or until you dismiss it as an action. The hand vanishes if it is ever more than 30 feet away from you or if you cast this spell again.
You can use your action to control the hand. You can use the hand to manipulate an object, open an unlocked door or container, stow or retrieve an item from an open container, or pour the contents out of a vial. You can move the hand up to 30 feet each time you use it.
The hand can’t attack, activate magical items, or carry more than 10 pounds.

Minor Illusion
Illusion cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: S, M (a bit of fleece)
Duration: 1 minute
You create a sound or an image of an object within range that lasts for the duration. The illusion also ends if you dismiss it as an action or cast this spell again.
If you create a sound, its volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else’s voice, a lion’s roar, a beating of drums, or any other sound you choose. The sound continues unabated throughout the duration, or you can make discrete sounds at different times before the spell ends.
If you create an image of an object—such as a chair, muddy footprints, or a small chest—it must be no larger than a 5-foot cube. The image can’t create sound, light, smell, or any other sensory effect. Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it.
If a creature uses its action to examine the sound or image, the creature can determine that it is an illusion with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the illusion becomes faint to the creature.

Poison Spray
Conjuration cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 10 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
You extend your hand toward a creature you can see within range and project a puff of noxious gas from your palm. The creature must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or take 1d12 poison damage.
At Higher Levels. This spell’s damage increases by 1d12 when you reach 5th level (2d12), 11th level (3d12), and 17th level (4d12).

Rary's Telepathic Bond
5th-level divination (ritual)
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S, M (pieces of eggshell from two different kinds of creatures)
Duration: 1 hour
You forge a telepathic link among up to eight willing creatures of your choice within range, psychically linking each creature to all the others for the duration. Creatures with Intelligence scores of 2 or less aren’t affected by this spell.
Until the spell ends, the targets can communicated telepathically through the bond whether or not they have a common language. The communication is possible over any distance, though it can’t extend to other planes of existence.

Shield
1st-level abjuration
Casting Time: 1 reaction, which you take when you are hit by an attack or targeted by the Magic Missile spell
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 round
An invisible barrier of magical force appears and protects you. Until the start of your next turn, you have a +5 bonus to AC, including against the triggering attack, and you take no damage from Magic Missile.

Suggestion
2nd-level enchantment
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, M (a snake’s tongue and either a bit of honeycomb or a drop of sweet oil)
Duration: Concentration, up to 8 hours
You suggest a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two) and magically influence a creature you can see within range that can hear and understand you. Creatures that can’t be charmed are immune to this effect. The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the course of action sound reasonable. Asking the creature to stab itself, throw itself onto a spear, immolate itself, or do some other obviously harmful act ends the spell.
The target must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, it purses the course of action you described to the best of its ability. The suggested course of action can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do.
You can also specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. For example, you might suggest that a knight give her warhorse to the first beggar she meets. If the condition isn’t met before the spell expires, the activity isn’t preformed.
If you or any of your companions damage the target, the spell ends.

Wall Of Fire
4th-level evocation
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V, S, M (a small piece of phosphorus)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute
You create a wall of fire on a solid surface within range. You can make the wall up to 60 feet long, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick, or a ringed wall up to 20 feet in diameter, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick. The wall is opaque and lasts for the duration.
When the wall appears, each creature within its area must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 5d8 fire damage, or half as much damage on a successful save.
One side of the wall, selected by you when you cast this spell, deals 5d8 fire damage to each creature that ends its turn within 10 feet of that side or inside the wall. A creature takes the same damage when it enters the wall for the first time on a turn or ends its turn there. The other side of the wall deals no damage.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d8 for each slot level above 4th.

Appearance:
A tall, tan man with a finely trimmed beard and moustache, Durvael Oolo carries himself with an air of regal aloofness from the world. Fond of intricate jewelry and fine fabrics, he is used to cover up those scaly parts of his lower body that give away his reptilian heritage.
When travelling, Durvael wears a bandolier that can magically fit all his possessions, and uses a gem-topped staff. His serpent familiar Hisss often wraps itself around the staff.

Personality:
Calm and collected, Durvael is often said to be devoid of emotions altogether. What they cannot fathom, however, is that the yuan ti feels so little empathy for the people around him as another being would have for the ants crawling beneath their feet. Patient and well educated, he places knowledge and magic over the concerns of man, unless they threaten his very survival.

Personality traits: I am always calm, even in the face of danger, and I am forever seeking more knowledge about magic and history.
Ideal: Power. Knowledge is the path to power and dominance.
Bond: Even though I have rejected them, the yuan ti will always be more of a family to me than these humans.
Flaws: I'm never satisfied with the power, skill and knowledge I have, I always want more.

Backstory:
Hisss, unaligned tiny fiend (poisonous snake)
Str 2 (-4) Dex 16 (+3) Con 11 (+0) Int 1 (-5) Wis 10 (+0) Cha 3 (-4)

Background
Jack always considered himself lucky. Sure, growing up on the streets of Greyhawk with his older sister Dahlia wasn't exactly a plush life, but they were free, and Dahlia made sure they always had a safe place to sleep and plenty to eat. It was Dahlia who was first recruited by the Guild, and she made sure they took her little brother under their protection as well. It wasn't long before the siblings made a name for themselves in the underworld, pulling off first small jobs with locals, and then moving up to more sophisticated heists. Dahlia was the brains, and Jack the muscle - always watching Dahlia's back, using his uncanny senses to alert her of trouble or to swiftly eliminate a threat. While there were plenty of close shaves, Jack knew his luck would pull them through, as it had done in the dark alleys of Greyhawk time and time again.

That all changed on the Azbar job. As usual Dahlia was first to hear of a new target visiting the City: a rich merchant from the east named Azbar. It was rumored he had meticulous tastes, with a particular fondness for rare art and jewels. Best of all, it seemed he travelled alone.

Dahlia of course planned the heist to the finest detail. They would first case the inn he was staying at carefully, discovering his habits and routines. It didn't take long to discover he disappeared in the City's sewers almost every night, leaving his room securely locked. It was almost too easy, and this started to make Dahlia uneasy. Jack urged her on however, pleading that the lack of guards and other precautions was just the simple ignorance of a foreigner. Charming as ever, Jack finally convinced Dahlia to go forward with the job, much to his later regret.

Picking the lock to the merchant's room proved to be a straightforward affair for Dahlia while Jack watched the hallway. Once inside, they were immediately struck by the display of valuables, including gilded coffers, serving sets, and an ornate chest. Jack thanked his luck yet again, as they quickly set forth pilfering the joint, including a flat lacquered box that Jack slipped into his pouch. They were just considering the lock on the chest when they heard the doorknob slowly turn.

Jack immediately sprang to the door, hoping to strike the intruder from behind as he entered. Dahlia hid behind the bed. Unexpectedly it was the merchant Azbar, returning hours earlier than expected.

Tall and well-built, the dark merchant scanned the room from the doorway. With great suddenness, Azbar reached behind the door where Jack was hiding and yanked him out with a force well beyond the man's proportions. Grinning, Azbar gazed at Jack while giving a glance to where Dahlia was hiding.

"So, the foolish humans think to rob me? Laughable. While I normally like to play with my prey, alas, I must depart and therefore dispose of you more quickly than I'd like. Time to die little ones."

Closing the door behind him while still holding Jack with one powerful arm, Azbar then changed, transforming into a humanoid that had the features of a striped tiger. It was his hands that were oddest of all - they were backwards, with thumbs facing outwards instead of in. He then causally swiped his free claw across Jack's face with a vicious blow. Blackness engulfed him.

Sometime later Jack awoke in a pool of his own blood. His luck had saved him again, as his face had fallen onto a rich, thick carpet which seemed to have staunched much of the blood flow. To his horror, his sister was not so fortunate. Her broken and gashed body law sprawled upon the bed, her blood splattered on the walls. In shock, gasping, Jack haltingly made his escape through the room's lone window. Of Azbar, no sign was seen of him again.

It wasn't until days later, still morning his sister's death, when Jack thought to open the lacquered box. Inside was a curious, curved dagger with etching on the blade in some unknown tongue, as well as a note written in some type of elvish script. Using his contacts at the Guild, Jack had the both the dagger and note translated. The dagger turned out to be magical - with a command, poison could issue forth from the blade itself. The note was more mysterious. It only mentioned that the giants to the northwest were somehow key to their efforts - whoever "they" were - and that Azbar should proceed with haste to support them.

Thus, with note and dagger in hand, Jack now had a new target. For once this target was not about the riches, or even what the Guild wanted. No, this target was about revenge - and it started with finding some giants.

Description
A study in contrasts. Nigh eight feet tall, but gentle in each motion. In the towns like a colt afraid to trample someone, in the woods a sure stride. Eyes wide as a child as if seeing everything for the first time, but learned words when speaking. The only part not a contradiction is the chanting. So low it’s a rumble in the boots and the pit of the stomach seems like the only thing that should come from that wide, tall frame. And if he brings out his bandore, bodhran, or other instrument, sublime.

When asked about home he talks of valleys and peaks, but his accent tells you they are far from here. When asked of his name he says he has been called Deep Well, but another time he answers when someone calls him Yew-en, which he spells Eoghan using the script of the fey. Family he tells of brother, sisters, cousins, fathers, mothers, aunt and uncles, but maybe that is his clan, or maybe a whole tribe in stories that last for hours. All the while he smiles his gentle smile, as if names are the way with the least worth to describe someone but he is supportive that one day we will be mature enough to discover that ourselves.

The nobles think the fey sent him - at least they take pride that even the fickle rulers of the Summerlands or the Court of Gloaming capitulated to their pleas and sent a champion. The few that have heard him chant wonder if mayhaps he is more closely associated to the archfey than that, while those who only look at his odd outlander ways discount him as but a traveler and adventurer. He just smiles and nods as if they are all equally right - or equally wrong.

Trait: One should only take what one needs and no more; greed is a great evil
Ideal: Each note in the song of life is worth hearing; harmonies can be found in the strangest places.
Bond: As long as one is a good shepherd and caretaker to the lands, one remains true to oneself.
Flaw: These races are green and juvenile, and sometimes their actions are abhorrent.

Background: Fey Traveler. Uses PHB customization rules. As Far Traveler except replaces Insight with Performance.

Feature: All Eyes on You.
Your accent, mannerisms, figures of speech, and perhaps even your appearance all mark you as foreign. Curious glances are directed your way wherever you go, which can be a nuisance, but you also gain the friendly interest of scholars and others intrigued by far-off lands, to say nothing of everyday folk who are eager to hear stories of your homeland.

You can parley this attention into access to people and places you might not otherwise have, for you and your traveling companions. Noble lords, scholars, and merchant princes, to name a few, might be interested in hearing about your distant homeland and people.

Feature: Criminal Contact
Valda knows Blackrat, a fairly reliable and trustworthy member of the thieves guild, who has a number of connections in the criminal underworld. She also knows various ways to get messages to him, even over long distances through local messengers, corrupt caravan masters and seedy sailors.

Backstory
Valda remembers the day the giants came. The daughter of poor farmers, she was but a child when giants attacked the small village, destroying it completely and killing Valda's parents. Forced to go the city as a refugee, the penniless child soon needed to find a way to live. So, she became Valda the Thief, forced to work for the thieves' guild, first as a pickpocket and lookout.

After a growth spurt or two, her amazonian physique convinced the guild to have her trained to fight, to be used as a legbreaker or tough. She learned her trade in illegal fighting pits and back alley brawls. She was now Valda the Blade.

Trained in both combat and stealth put her in high demand, not just among the criminal world she lived in, but also with adventurers as well. After all, delving into an ancient tomb often required such skills. Valda began hiring her talents out to groups who needed those skills, and the once penniless farmer's daughter was now quite a well off adventurer. It was on one of these adventures, a quest to save a minor nobleman's daughter who had been kidnapped by a hag, that Valda found a journal discussing giant runic magic.

This sparked something in Valda. She hated giants, for killing her family, destroying her life. However, she also saw that day the strength giants had. She wanted that strength, to never need feel weak again. She became obsessed with learning this magic. She hired herself out to adventurer's going to ancient giant ruins, and consulted sages on the language of giants. Eventually, she uncovered their secrets, learning to inscribe runes that could do amazing things. She was now Valda the Runeblade.

Trait: I blow up at the slightest insult.
Ideal: I'm loyal to my friends, not to any ideals, and everyone else can take a trip down the Styx for all I care.
Bond: Someone I loved died because I wasn't strong enough to save them. That will never happen again.
Flaw: When I see something valuable, I can't help but think about how to steal it.

Handaxe. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target.

Hit: 7 (1d4 + 5) bludgeoning damage, or 9 (1d4 + 7) bludgeoning damage when wielding no other weapons.

Unarmed strike. Melee Weapon Attack: + 9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target.
Hit: 7 (1d4 + 5) bludgeoning damage.

Tavern Brawler
Bible is proficient with improvised weapons.

Her unarmed strike uses a d4 for damage.

When she hits a creature with an unarmed strike or an improvised weapon on her turn, Bible can use a bonus action to attempt to grapple the target.

Fighting Style: Dueling
When Bible is wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, she gains a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

Second Wind
On her turn, Bible can use a bonus action to regain hit points equal to 1d10 + her fighter level. Once she uses this feature, Bible must finish a short or long rest before she can use it again.

Action Surge
On her turn, Bible can take one additional action on top of her regular action and a possible bonus action.

Once she uses this feature, Bible must finish a short or long rest before she can use it again.

Improved Critical
Bible’s weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20.

Extra Attack
Bible can attack twice, instead of once, whenever she takes the Attack action on her turn.

Remarkable Athlete
Bible can add half her proficiency bonus (round up) to any Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution check she makes that doesn’t already use her proficiency bonus.

In addition, when Bible makes a running long jump, the distance she can cover increases by a number of feet equal to her Strength modifier.

Indomitable
Bible can reroll a saving throw that she fails. If she does so, she must use the new roll, and she can’t use this feature again until she finishes a long rest.

Background Feature: Ship’s Passage
When she needs to, Bible can secure free passage on a sailing ship for herself and her adventuring companions. She might sail on the ship she served on, or another ship she has good relations with (perhaps one captained by a former crewmate). Because she’s calling in a favor, Bible can’t be certain of a schedule or route that will meet her every need. @FitzTheRuke will determine how long it takes to get where she needs to go. In return for her free passage, Bible and her companions are expected to assist the crew during the voyage.

Personality Traits
My friends know they can rely on me, no matter what.
My language is as foul as the nether regions of a sea hag.

Ideal
Freedom. The sea is freedom—the freedom to go anywhere and do anything. (Chaotic)

Bond
I’m loyal to my captain first, everything else second.

Flaw
Once I start drinking, it’s hard for me to stop.

Backstory
The small fishing village of Steelport, sandwiched, as it was, between the Dense Bay and the Ponoree Hillside, depended for its survival on the preservation of a peaceful coexistence with the local hill giants. This uneasy truce had been maintained for generations and had allowed the people of Steelport a hope of defending their coasts from the pirates that often plagued their shores. In fact, some said the villagers were half giant themselves.

Bible was born at sea, in the midst of a raging typhoon. She grew up stronger than most and soon joined the effort to free her village home from the pirate scourge. In a few short seasons of fierce ship to ship fighting, Bible proved her mettle in battle. She became known as a hard fighter (and a hard drinker) and earned the nickname “Fistblood” from her crew mates. Soon the pirates no longer dared to approach Steelport, and it was clearly time to take the fight to them!

As the campaign against the pirates expanded, seasons became years, and Bible served under a ship’s captain to whom she was extremely loyal. On a night of uncanny darkness, the pirates, in league with a sea hag, lured the captain’s ship onto the jagged rocks, and it was pulled down by a gaping whirlpool that opened to swallow it whole. Bible escaped the wreck, clinging to a floating timber, but her captain was lost in the deep. Someday, she believes, she will go in search of her captain, and they will be reunited at last.

The Pirate War, as it came to be called, lasted until the coasts of the kingdom were clear and safe. For her services to the crown, Bible was awarded the title of Reeve and Protector of Steelport, where she resides to this day. Her duties include knocking heads together when rough customers land in port to cause mischief and maintaining the fragile peace with the hill giants. But now, with giant-raids on the rise and the peace evidently broken, she is determined to root out the cause and restore order to the kingdom.
