General Appearance
Age: 325 years old
Eyes: Blue, though his left eye is pale, milky white, blind and ruined
Height: 4 ft 6 in
Weight: 170 lbs
Hair: Reddish-brown, beginning to grey
Build: Stocky, muscular frame

General Description: Kadrin is a stocky, muscular Mountain Dwarf originally from Havenhill. He has been serving in Prince Olinstaad’s Royal Army almost since the Prince ascended the throne. He is an old dwarf, though, except from the wrinkles that have formed deep etches around his eyes and the slightly greying beard, it would be difficult to tell... a dwarf of 200 hundred years, maybe.

But while Kadrin’s strength and constitution seem not to be failing him, he is in fact 325 years old. The occasional grumbling of his joints reminds the dwarf of this fact from time to time.

Kadrin is blind in his right eye, an early brush with death that has left him with a savage scar and a sightless socket.

Being part of the Stonefist clan and having achieved his own measure of success in service to the Prince, Kadrin is well-to-do. Like most of his race, he admires fine craftsmanship.

Magical Items
Ring of Youthful Vitality: A ring of white gold with small rubies along the band. The ring provides two blessings upon the wearer – 1) when the ring is worn for a month, the wearer’s maximum age variable is doubled (2d100x2 for the dwarf)... once granted, the blessing is permanent even if the wearer removes the ring. 2) when the ring is worn for a week, the wearer begins to become immune to the negative penalties of aging... this blessing is lost if the ring is removed.

Ring of True Seeing: A small, precisely cut diamond set in a platinum ring. Once per day, when the wearer of the ring will it, the ring produces the effect of a priest’s “true seeing” spell, allowing the wearer “true sight” out to a range of 120 ft for the duration of 5 rounds.

Brooch of Warning: A silver chain with a silver medallion with platinum inlays depicting a picture of a watchful bear. Anyone wearing this brooch is surprised only on a roll of 1 in 10.

Horn of Clanggedin: A white ram’s horn inlayed with adamantine, the metal depicting two crossed battle axes. When the horn is blow, it produces the effect of a priest’s “prayer” spell with an area effect of 100 ft centered on the person blowing the horn and the duration of 10 rounds. The horn can be blown 3x/day and only by a dwarf of good alignment.

Boots of the Draft Horse: Sturdy, dark brown leather boots, steel toed, with a picture of a powerful horse sewn into the leather of each boot. The boots allow the wearer to gain the movement rate of a draft horse (MV 12), and the wearer does not suffer any ill effects from a forced march.

Haversack of the Merchant: A well crafted, leather backpack sewn together with threads of silver and gold, the buckles being made of to look like gold coins depicting the face of a dwarven king. The backpack functions exactly like “Heward’s Handy Haversack”.

Nurabir, “Brother’s Keeper”, +3 Dwarven Field Plate (AC -2), Soul bound: This suit of field plate was specifically made for Kadrin by his sister, Hilda Stonefist, a master craftswoman and priestess dedicated to the Soul Forger. The chain mail undercoat is made from fine links of alternating steel and adamantine. The plates are made of high-polished steel, giving it a slightly bluish colouration. Etched in the steel plates and inlayed with adamantine is the heraldry of the Stonefist clan, along with the Clan’s motto “Resolute and Sure”. The suit contains enchantments increasing its defensive protection by +3. Additionally, when Kadrin speaks a command word, he can call the armor to himself. If he is not wearing any other armor, Brother’s Keeper appears on him, strapped and buckled properly. A second command word allows Kadrin to remove Brother’s Keeper. The armor disappears from his body and appears nearby (5 – 10 ft away) on dwarven mannequin.

Har’ard, “the Stalwart Guardian”, +2 Medium Steel Shield (adds +3 bonus to AC): A highly polished round shield with the heraldry of the Principality of Ulek etched in dark adamantine. This shield was also a gift to Kadrin from his sister. The enchantments add an additional +2 to the defensive protection of the shield. When Kadrin uses the shield to bash his opponents, it is +2 to hit and causes 1d6+2 plus strength damage.

Nurakas, “the Steady Seeker”, +3 Light Crossbow of Accuracy: A dark lacquered, wooden crossbow with string made from tightly braided unicorn hair. This crossbow adds +3 to hit, causes 1d6+3 damage, and all normal distances are considered “short” range.

Dain, “the Stout Fist”, +3 War Hammer: A light-weight, double headed hammer molded from one piece of mithral-adamantine alloy. The hammer may be used one handed in combat, causing double normal hammer damage (2d4+2/2d4) with a +3 bonus to attack and damage. When used two-handed on walls and doors up to 2 feet thick, the hammer has a chance of smashing through a hole in the door or wall equal to double the wielder's chances to bend bars or lift gates. The hole will be large enough to allow a human-sized being to crawl through it without trouble.

Brief History: Kadrin serves as a general in the Principality’s Royal Army, and presently divides his time between advising the Prince, defends the Principality’s land holdings near Thunderstrike (near the Suss Forest), and taking on certain special operations on behalf of the Prince’s or nation’s interest. Being assigned to the defense of the lands around Thunderstrike means that Kadrin regularly is connecting and coordinating with leaders from the nations with shared borders, most often with Celene. While he feels wounded by Queen Yolanda’s resistance to assist the Principality of Ulek in recapturing territory lost to the tribes of Pomarj, he has continued to remain fast friends with her son, Galan.

KIT DESCRIPTION Gladiator
Description: The gladiator is a showman-warrior from a society where public combat competitions are a popular sport. The gladiator is a professional warrior in this high-profile arena; for the delight (and bloodlust) of the crowds, for his own personal wealth and aggrandizement (or, if he is a slave, for the profits of his owner), he fights organized matches against human, demihuman, and even monstrous opponents. The Gladiator is going to be a showy, high-profile warrior. He performs dangerous stunts in combat. He attracts the attention of crowds of admirers. He receives a lot of credit for brave deeds whether he deserves the credit or not. A Gladiator can be a callous brute, a dirty arena fighter with no interests other than killing his enemy as quickly as possible and making off with his prize; or he can be a clean-limbed, heroic figure, a hero who always fights honorably in the arena and never kills when he does not have to

Magical Items
+3 Vorpal Long Sword �JAL� JAL was re-forged with a red mystic gem on its pommel. When touched and the command word spoken, the sword changes with the blade goes to red becoming red hot as if taken fresh from a forge. In this form it is +4 vs cold using creatures and does double damage, However it loses the Vorpal power when hot. A second touch and the command word spoken in reverse JAL returns to it normal Vorpal state.

+3 Short Sword �HOTH� HOTH was forged with a blue mystic gem the blade crafted with glassteel. The sword itself does not reflect light nor make a sound when drawn from a sheath. When drawn, it casts a light in a 60' radius but only the bearer of the sword can see the light. 2x per day, a command can be given that turns the light into True seeing as per the spell for 5 rounds. The bearer can if desired share the True Seeing ability with two others if all grasp the hilt of HOTH. Like JAL if the gemstone is touched and the command word spoken the blade goes blue becoming ice cold like an icicle. The sword is +4 vs fire using creatures and does double damage. However in ice form, the light and true seeing can not be used. A second touch and the command word spoken in reverse HOTH returns to it normal state
The two swords are a matched set


+3 Axe of Hurling X2 This appears to be a normal hand axe. With familiarity and practice, however, the possessor will eventually discover that the axe can be hurled up to 180 feet, and it will return to the thrower in the same round whether or not it scores a hit. Damage inflicted by the magical throwing attack is twice normal (2d6 vs. S or M, 2d4 vs. L), with the weapon's magical bonus added thereafter. (For example, an axe of hurling +3 will inflict 2d6+3 points of damage vs. S- or M-sized creatures and 2d4+3 points of damage vs. creatures of size L if it hits the target after being thrown.) The axe will cause only normal damage (plus its magical bonus) when used as a hand-held weapon.
+2 Daggers

+3 Elven Chainmail of Elemental Resistance (Grants the wearer 50% Resistance to elemental based attacks both magical and mundane.)

Gauntlets of Dexterity
Boots of Speed
Ring of Free Action
Cat�s Eye Gem This simple small gold gem looks like the eye of a cat. The gem grants infravision just like an Elf (60�) and is embedded to the right or left side of user�s eye.
Thieves Tools of Silent Stealth These Thief tools do not look to be made of metal but some hard dark substance perhaps obsidian. While magical no means of detecting will reveal such. The tools have 2 main powers.
SILENCE: Any thief using these tools will make no sound when opening locks, disarming traps, or any such use.
STEALTH: When all tools are placed in case, case can be held against users skin and will magically mold into the users body disappearing from view. There they safely remain until user commands them to resurface.
Grants +10% to all thief skills

Potions of Extra-healing x3
Keoghtom's Ointment x3

BACKGROUND
Maximus Jerele started life as any normal boy born to loving parents and a part of a Sueli household, north of the Empire. His first 15 years of age were as normal as any child could hope for filled with love of a girl, happiness of youth and two very wonderful parents. But as with everything in life all good things come to an end and with the coming of the Empire so did Maximus�s normal life.

His parents killed and his village destroyed he along with a few hardy boys were taken as slaves to be trained for a new life and death in the Gladiatorial pits. His handlers were good and seeing in Maximus a possible champion they trained him both day and night and turned him into a good fighter and then as hoped for, a champion. So much the champion that the crowds knew him by face and placed upon him the nickname of "El Diablo", or translated to common "the Devil" and so they chanted it every time he did enter the pit.

For the next 10 years Maximus was champion, unbeatable by all, and seemed to savor this life so much so that though he was still watched and not trusted his guards grew lax and in a moment of surprise violence Maximus did kill them and escaped. Along with a few others Maximus now 25, was free.

The boy turned slave, turned Gladiator, now a free man vowed never to be a slave again. He turned Mercenary, went out into the world for the first time to fight for any and all including himself. At times even for free if the cause was right, against the realm he would hate till his dying breath that of the Empire. Maximus worked his way south, away from his former homelands and into the realms of the Iron League. Then one day, five years after breaking free, Maximus now thirty joined up with a newly formed group of adventurer�s.

This new group consisted of Arien Thedell, a male, human Knight, no one more noble then this Knight in training. Char, a human Ranger, no man better in the skill of a woodsmen. Dapple Moon a beautiful female half-elf Fighter/Thief, some called her crazy, Maximus called her friend. Kilgim Blackaxe, a male, dwarf, Fighter/Cleric, when called upon to heal or fight there was none more faithful to his god. Adrian Valentine, a male, human, Mage the first of his skill set Maximus had ever met in or out of the arena, but one to remember.

Finally there was Jal Spellbinder, another human Mage but different from the rest of this new party. As the adventure that had brought them together began Maximus found he and Jal had much in common and they soon became the closet of the group in friendship. In reality Maximus as a gladiator had never had friends, nor as a mercenary. For him Jal was his first true friend. Years came and went, daring quests and missions started and finished, and the party made a name for themselves. Life for awhile was good for this close group of seven friends.

However nothing lasts forever and it was on a mission to a tower of evil that Jal died. For the group as a whole the death of Jal was terrible and heart breaking, for Maximus it was devastating and the huge gladiator never fully recovered. Within a short time later the six survivors parted ways, each following his or her own path, the cloud of Jal�s death hanging over all.

During the next four years since leaving the others the time moving slowly Jal�s death ever hovering. Finding himself on his own, and having to support himself, Maximus turned to the skill of Thievery, finding even for his size, he was quite good at it. Little by little while learning the skills of a rogue, Jal�s memory a cloud of guilt, loneliness and despair. During this time Maximus found himself adventuring with many different groups, though never making as close friends as the original group. It was during one of these quests to the Hall of a Stone King that Maximus was able to give Jal the honor he deserved and lay the guilt felt over the Mage�s death to rest. During combat with an Iron Scorpion, Maximus was able to defeat it but lost his hand and his prized Vorpal sword was broken. A fellow party member, Galenthanus an Elven Mage/Thief, and son of Yolanda, lent the big gladiator his ring of regeneration to slowly re-grow the hand. During this time a dwarf smith named Otto, owing his life to Maximus and having taken two mystic gems from the scorpion. Used them to reforge the Vorpal blade and also make a matching short sword as well. When presented to the big Fighter/Mage Maximus named the new Vorpal sword JAL, the short sword HOTH.

With two new swords and his hand once more whole Maximus continues to adventure hoping one day to once again reunite with the survivors of that first group somehow.

You roll 10 d20s.

When a saving throw comes up I roll a d10 to pick your result..


It is just a novel idea. If it confuses you or you have no desire to do so, not a problem. Just throwing it out there.

Does everyone know the dice roller on the Inn?

Dice Roller

I would like everyone to go there and roll a d20 ten times and email it to me - rbriantatgmail.com.

I will use these rolls for saving throws and roll a d10 to pick the score.

As well, do the same for 10 rolls of a d100 for anytime I do percentages. I always go high for rolls so if you need 75% you do not want to roll 24 or below.

MAke sure you add your name to it so I know who's rolls are whom.

Or you can just let me roll for you -

Her Majesty, Queen Yolanda of Celene had many titles. Her honorifics included, “The Eternal”, "Her Fey Majesty," the "Faerie Queen," the "Perfect Flower of Celene," and "Lady Rhalta of All Elvenkind." There were more but she stopped keeping track of such frivolity after the 4th millennium of her life. At this moment she would gladly trade then all for a chance to leave this Grand Ball and return to her chambers for the night. Part of it was the nagging headache she had that was hounding her like an old love, neither fading not getting stronger but remaining irritating. The other part was after 4000 years as a ruler, these parties were more than a little boring to her by now. She was planning on making her exit as subtly as she could when it hit her. The headache vanished and was replaced by a strong sense of loss and pain. She stumbled to ground and everyone in the courtyard gasped to see her fall. Through it all, one name came to the forefront of her mind - Galenthanus

Onselven, her chief advisor and cousin was beside her within seconds, “Your Majesty? Yolanda? What ails you?”

“she stood up on her own and looked at Onselven with eyes of pain and concern, “It is Galen. He is in danger. Summon Ellendil and Wendela to my chambers immediately. I want the Flyers outside my window as soon as possible., make sure they have a mage who can cast teleport.”

“Yes my lady.”

“Clear the room, there will be no celebration until I am sure Galen is alive and unharmed.”

“Yes your Majesty.”

Yolanda ran up the stairwell of the grand hallway and towards her chamber. Her subjects ran out of her way with one glimpse of her determined face. Once inside the room, she immediately crossed her bedroom to the door on the right and flung open the doors. There was a garden encircling a silver basin on a stone pedestal and over the basin was a floating orb, with an amber glow to it. She sighed with partial relief but ran to the orb abd with one hand grabbed it and then focused her power on the one thing that mattered the most to her in the world -her son. At first she got images of darkness, horses fleeing, and screams.

Oh no! The Triplets!

Summoning the full extent of her mana to her, she tried to get a hold on Galen and pull him to her, but something blocked her every move. A dark presence that seemed hauntingly familiar yet completely unknown at the same time was matching her for power and magic. As she reached for her loved ones, it reached for her and she knew that this was part of the dark one’s plan. With noi choice left, Yolanda was forced to let go of her hold and step away from the basin.

Ellendil and Wendela came into her room and called for her. The Queen rushed out of the garden to meet them.

“My Queen ..” Ellendil started.

“No time for that. Galenthanus and those he wished to ward are in grave peril. Ellendil, I want the airborne unit ready for me to warp them to Galen’s location.”

“At once Yolanda!”

“Wendy, get me every mage that can cast teleport and Sending with some proficiency. We will need help.”

“Yes Yolanda. Shall I contact the Diamond Core?”

“No. The Archmage and I did not part on the best of terms and besides, I need someone or someones more subtle. Now go! Do not delay!”

The two elves ran out of the room and Yolanda ran out to the balcony outside of her room. Within a few minutes, a squad of elven hunters astride Hippogriffs flew by her balcony. The leader saluted his readiness to Yolanda and she cast her spell, creating a gateway to Galen’s last known location. Without hesitation, the squad through the Warp and disappeared.

She stared at the place where the portal was for a moment and then looked to her hands. She was still clutching the orb as if it was a new born baby. Where are you Galenthanus?

News came within the hour. The elven hunters had found a caravan that the Prince had used and it was clearly damaged from an attack. There were no elves at be found at all. No sign of the Prince, the 12 elven hunter guards or the three elven maids they were guarding. They found a dead human, a cleric friend of Galen Yolanda remembered. He appeared to have been tortured, and dismembered and then brought back to life so he could be tortured and dismembered again.

Yolanda held herself together by the knowledge that she was sure she knew who was behind this. The touch across the void was enough to awaken the memories but abducting three elven ladies of the same bloodline and Galen – There was only one, well three beings actually, that had a clear reason to do that. She thought they were gone but she was clearly wrong. She needed to contact the most powerful warriors, clerics, Rogues and Wizards she could and all ones that would want to save Galen -the friends from the past that served with Galen on his adventures.

Yolanda returned to the Garden Basin and prepared herself to cast some spells.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Silver Screen I


The room was pitch black, darker than the whole of Hades. No windows or doors lead to this room and no fire burned in lamps to illuminate the interior. Had they been there, an observer would have seen a simple room, about 30’ square with a throne like chair on a dais as its only decoration. Quiet as a grave within, a mist began to swirl before the throne. The mist thickened and coalesced into a form – a female form, vaguely elven in shape. She immediately knelt before the empty throne and bowed her head.

“What is your bidding, my master?” She asked.

A voice like dry rustling leaves in an autumn’s wind responded from the throne. “You have been successful.” It was a statement, not a question.

“Yes my Master.”

“Very good Patience. All is going according to plan then. Did you have much resistance?”

“There were some unexpected events. He had a holy man among his minions. We lost Thea.”

“Lost? How?”

“The holy man had great power and Thea was too reckless in her powers and too confident in her abilities.”

“I see.” The voice said with a tone of finality. “What happened to the holy man? If he was here, i would have felt his presence.”

“Forgive me my master, but when Thea was consumed, my rage took hold of me and I was not reckless in my powers. I slew the holy man. I took my time and I enjoyed very second.”

Silence hung in the chamber for a few moments. Then the voice responded again, “Very well. What is done is done. It does not affect the plan. Bring the prisoners to their appointed chambers. You and your sisters may take half of the guardsmen for your own needs, he other half go to Moy.”

“Yes my Master. Thank you my master.” She got up while bowing to the chair, “It will be as you command it.” And she dissolved from the physical form back into a mist to flow back to her sisters. But as she did, suddenly she was wracked with pain and agony. Her mist form ignited into green flames and burned with an intensity that lit the room. She could do nothing but scream soundlessly in the grip of the terrible flame that did not kill her but burned as if it would. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, she was released and all she could do was fall to the floor in physical form again.

“Patience, do not disappoint me again. I will not be so forgiving.”

I have all the characters in now. Some I am waiting for replies back on changes.

I hope to post the characters over the weekend. Please note I will be posting them as they are going into the game. I will not be editing them to subtract arrows, add equipment, remove stuff etc etc. I trust we can all maintain our own characters by now.

I can make mistakes with the best of them. If in the game you feel I have misruled, forgot something or screwed up, send me a PM. I will always look into it and if in doubt I will ask Vanadia her opinion as a player. However once I make a ruling based on your request, that is the ruling. I will not engage in long conversations or flame wars about rules. Remember - my goal is to create a great story, not to kill everyone in the room.

Eyes: Violet
Height: 5� 5�
Weight: 125 lbs
Hair: Black
Build: Slender
General Description: Jarenion stands 5' 5" tall and weighs a rather sleight 125 lbs. Despite his small stature, however, he cuts an imposing if not intimidating figure owed to his confidence and determination. He wears his long black hair in a loose and, in truth, somewhat unkempt fashion, his eyes (a violet shade common to his blood line), much like the points of his leaf-shaped ears, are seldom seen as they are often hidden by the spill of his hair and the wide brim of the dark leather hat that he rarely removes. He is most often seen wearing a knee-length, charcoal grey coat, blousy black trousers, and soft charcoal grey boots in lieu of the standard robes of a mage. His only visible weapons are a rune-graven adamantine staff that is seldom far from hand and a dagger that hangs amidst a cluster of pouches from the belt around his waist� what items may be in those pouches or, for that matter, in the dark leather satchel slung from his shoulder are beyond imagining as he guards their contents jealously.

Jarenion might easily be mistaken as being arrogant by those who haven�t taken the time (or had the patience) to get to know him beyond appearances and first impressions. He is rather aloof and supremely confident in his abilities, though, tending to be a bit of an intimidator when it comes to wielding the arcane energies he�s spent his life mastering and, often, prefers to take his spells into combat alongside sword-and-armor fighters rather than simply providing them support from a distance as he has seen many other mages do. Despite his standoffish nature and lack of a ready smile for most of civilization, those who have travelled with and/or befriended the mage know that a warm smile and pleasant conversation can be evoked from Jarenion on occasion� if you can pull his attentions from his spellcraft for that long.

Magical Items:
    >
  • Staff of the Stone Lord (40 chr)� This staff is a solid piece of Adamantine, doe +3 to hit and damage, can affect any creature as if a +5 weapon and any weapon breakage can be ignored. The staff has all the powers of a Rod of Smiting (+3 magical weapon that inflicts 1d8+3 points of damage. Against golems, the staff causes 2d8+6 points of damage, and any score of 20 or better completely destroys the golem. Any hit upon a golem drains one charge. The rod causes normal damage (1d8+3) versus creatures of the Outer Planes. Any score of 20 or better draws off one charge and causes triple damage: (1d8+3) x3).
    Additional Powers:
    Staff holds up to 10 levels of spells in holding (10 1st, 5 2nd etc Banishment (7), Dispel Magic(3)). These spells can be cast by the user at any point but require a casting time of 1 seg only. Caster can refill spells by casting the spell into the staff.
    Earthen strength � as long as the staff is held, the wielder gains 20 hit points.
    The Staff is soul bonded to Jarenion and can be summoned to hand at will
    Once a day the staff can cast Stoneskin on the wielder only (2 charges, holds for 7 attacks))
    Once per day the staff can expend 3 charges and create a wall of stone (20 H, 3� thick) around the caster in a 10� radius. The wall will be circular and last one round only but no attack can get through it, not even mist.
    Casting time is always # of charges as Segments

    The Onyx Weasel AC 4 AT: 1 Dm: 1-4 -When commanded, this statuette changes into a creature with the similar properties as a weasel, except that it is endowed with Intelligence of 8-10, can communicate in the Common tongue, and has exceptional olfactory and visual abilities. The olfactory power enables the onyx weasel to scent the trail of a known creature 100% of the time if the trail is one hour old or less, -10% per hour thereafter. The weasel is subject to being thrown off by false trails, breaks, water, and masking or blocking substances or scents. The visual power enables the onyx weasel to use 90-foot-range infravision, spotting hidden (such as in shadows) things 60% of the time, and normally invisible things 50% of the time. An onyx weasel can be used for up to six continuous hours, once per week. It obeys only its owner. This is J's Familiar as well.

  • Dagger +1
  • Rune�s Coat � Given to Jarenion by the arch-mage Rune himself, this Knee-length, charcoal grey coat gives a base AC of 2 and gives you against the elements in a normal setting (cold, heat, rain)
  • Sanderan�s Satchel � Like a Heward�s Handy Haversack but as a Satchel
  • Potion of Extra Healing (3)

Brief History: Jarenion Mithesonel, while considered by most as a more academician sort, had a long and successful career as an adventurer before his retirement, even having the opportunity to travel and adventure with some of Oerth�s most reputed heroes on several occasions. After many, many years of trials and travels beyond Celene�s borders, though, the mage has recently returned to his homeland and, at long last, in the privacy of his own tower, spent the last few years buried in his continuing study of magic and, on occasion, serving in something of an advisory capacity to the royals/nobles of Grey Elf society.
