Stats & Descriptions Name - Nervada Eopia Race – Half-Garr Age – 24 Height – 6”4 Affiliations - Errant (Warrior/Bard) Appearance - A fit, muscular man with a medium frame; long in both face and limbs. His red veins greet the world, glowing beneath a metallic skin that shines like quicksilver. His hair is also silvery, but it is not sharp despite looking more a bunch of quills than hair. An omega mark glows on his throat and his eyes are a piercing, literally glowing red. Apparel - Nervada wears a tan umanori hakama (type of pants). His boots are a tough-looking tan that goes well with the hakama. He is currently shirtless. On his arm is a blue bandana adorned with depictions of white desert flowers. He carries a boomerang, a guitar, and a sledgehammer with him at all times. Personality - Nervada is the kind a guy that would totally juggle a cow if he was capable of doing that. <- What Nervada put down when asked this question by a traveling personality questionnaire giver (a subspecies of the noble quest giver). At least, Nervada claims that was what he was. He might have just been a drunk hobo waving some paper around. Background – Two dozen years ago, a baby was born. It cried quite powerfully. But not powerfully enough to please its Garr father. The next baby didn’t even cry as powerfully as the first one *fist in the air*. Thus did Nervada and his brother Olo enter the world. Determined to keep his place in the tribe at any cost, Nervada’s father claimed that having these half-children was simply a test to show that his blood was so mighty even Halflings would be as full-blooded Garr. To achieve this, the Garr secretly used the potioning knowledge of his lover to feed a bizarre mixture to both of his children. To his dismay, years of shoving unorthodox potions down his children’s throats turned Nervada into a silver-skinned freak and his brother into an amber-skinned freak. Rather than let himself be expulsed from the tribe, the elder Garr openly rejected the tribe and ran off into the mountains. He was never seen again, and the two kids (Age 14) were banished from the tribe and left to fend for themselves. For 10 years the duo eked out a living in the wilds, eventually learning enough from passing adventurers to decide that the mercenary business was the way to go. Teaming up with Damek, the trio sets off to make their fortunes!
Allies: Olo, Damek Accomplishments:
> Served as a bodyguard on a crazy field trip. The Best Trip!
> Fought in some pit matches.
> Located some old tome or another.
> Hunted a Dire Elk with Shalin. In a crazy magical Hedge Maze.
I can’t believe it’s not Garr – Unlike his brother, the regiment of possibly toxic potions effected Nervada's growth in a postive manner. Thus, his starting strength is Very Strong and his silver skin protects him from slashes, cuts, and fire.
Silver is Forever – Whatever was done to Nervada not only caused his skin to turn silver, but causes it to revert back to that color over time if a spell/ability (even a permanent one) would change it to something else.
Eldritch Voice - Destruction magic flows into Nervada's words and unhinges the minds of those he speaks to; to most this is a general feeling of unease and intimidation. Four times per encounter this effect can be focused on someone to more seriously unhinge them, causing them to have a random one of the following effects at random: mental pain, confusion, emotional imbalance, or auditory/visual delusions.
Ruinous Blood - Wounding Nervada damages weapons and reduces their modifier by 2 for the rest of the encounter. Cannot reduce the modifier lower than 1. Nonmagical modifier 1 weapons will instantly shatter. Does not stack.
Laughing Valjaras Mark – A massive, odd-looking scar on Nervada’s back that only appears in his reflection, since his skin is umblemished. He's guessing this is because the universe decided he needed to have both flawless skin and have an impressive looking scar. Nervada is a very optimistic man.
> The Mark drives Nervada to new heights by blessing those that would challenge him. Anyone who fights Nervada alone gains a thematically appropriate fighter's technique whose level is equal to Nervada's Deadly Grace. They lose the technique as soon as they stop fighting him or receive aid.
ADONIS Nervada's attunement with body magics passively alters his body, awakening his inner potential turning him into a an embodiment of physical perfection. Level 1: Nervada's skin is clear and flawless, unscarred or marked by blemish or time. His immune system quickly deals with any illness, disease or pathogen. Level 2. Nervada's eyes are clear and piercing, his irises a brilliant shade of red. Nervada's hearing is enhanced.
Warrior Guild Technique: Unarted - Deadly Grace - The use of dance training and conditioning applied to combat, making you a more agile, unpredictable and dangerous foe. Lvl 1. Confidence - Your footfalls are unerring and sure, naturally fall where they need to in order to compensate for unevenness or instability.
Enchanted Armory - Nervada can at a touch imbue any item he owns (only one at any given time) with the effects of either, all or any combination of the following enchantments: Ruby Imbue, Topaz Imbue, Emerald Imbue, Jasper Imbue, Homeguide. This ability does not allow him to add more enchantments to an item than it's modifier allows.
> Dance Training
> Strings Training
Tempered Voice - Errants more potent performance pieces tend more towards self effecting physical reactions, any purely magical effects being limited in power akin to their spell limitations.
Linked to Olo - Nervada's brother has The Link LSS, so Nervada can share some of his abilities and vice-versa in additional to sharing senses/thoughts/what have you.

This ability does not allow him to add more enchantments to an item than it's modifier allows.

Level 2 - Feel - Boost your body's physical sensitivity, enhancing your sense of touch.
Melded Spells from the link:
Olo and Nervada's spell melds:
Restoring Flame + Flight
Restoring Flight - Level 6 Mind/Fire - Wrap yourself in an aura of force magics that lifts you into and through the air, granting you the power of flight. The aura also absorbs heat caused by friction and flames, healing you at a speed relative to your flight speed or the intensity of any nearby flames.
Empower and Telekinesis
Forceful Telekinesis - Level 5 Mind/Force - Focus the power of your mind and magic on an object no greater than a foot in diamter to move it. These movements are buffered by force magics the more simple they are. Momentary shoves and pulls are carried out as if with Strong strength, while more delicate moves are barely touched by force at all.
Forsake Steel - Most metals possess a property that causes prolonged direct exposure to them to interfere with a person's ability to sense and draw on magics, leaving them incapable of fueling spells level 8 and higher. Because of this, mages are forbade from using metallic weapons and armor, save for certain items, such as items made from precious metals (gold, silver, etc) and items that are made from special alloys that do not have this effect (such as mage-daggers). However, mages with the Electromagnetism LSS can carry metallic weapons of any type so long as they are no more than 1' in diameter, as this natural ability also endows them with a resistance to metallic interference.
Earth - A steel billao dagger with a marble hilt. Can pass through stone or metal as if it were not there.
Mind Boomerang - Boomerang of navy-dyed ironwood with silver bands. When thrown can either generate a half dozen illusionary copies of itself or lock onto a moving target.
Mind Dagger - A steel-like rapier dagger with a silver guard and navy silk wrapped hilt. Parrying a weapon with this dagger instills a subtle suggestion in that weapon's wielder's mind that the weapon is useless. The more you parry any given weapon, the strong the compulsion to stop using it and switch to another weapon or fight unarmed.
Anti Crab Sheath (currently on Smile)
Each post of battle Olo engages in without having drawn the blade, the energy and fury of that battle feeds into the sheath, increasing the magical pressure and strengthening the blade within. When the blade is finally drawn, the magic releases, igniting the air around it around it giving it a ruby imbue effect for that post. For that post the blade's modifier is also increased by the number of posts it was absorbing energy, with a maximum possible modifier of 9. The magic equalizes when battle ends.
Ratsakh's Smile – An iron cutlass stained red with a bone hilt, guard and handguard, scrimshawed with sailing scenes. (Mage Friendly)
Bleeder - The blade acts as a Spirit Dagger and Body Dagger that also reduces any leveled skills or abilities of anything it hits by one for the rest of the encounter. Does not stack or reduce past level 1.
Grinning Thrall - The first enemy killed with the blade each encounter rapidly decays and becomes a zombie under your control for the rest of the encounter. It is far more fragile than it was in life but can keep going through most injuries in some manner or another..
Food and water.
Spare Clothes (x2)
Paper with "standard hiring oath" on it.
Lvl. 1: Charisma - A target you cast this on will find you more charming and impressive than normal.
Lvl. 2: Sleight - Create an illusionary object of your choice in your hand. Must be small enough to actually sit in the palm of your hand.
Lvl. 3: Distraction - Compel a target to direct their focus onto you.
Lvl. 4: Daze - Disrupt a target's mind, dazing and disorienting them.
Lvl. 5: Mindlash - Lash out at a target's mind with a psychic attack, causing them to experience a crippling stab of pain.
Lvl. 6d: Telekinesis - Focus the full power of your mind on an object no greater than a foot in diameter to move it. Cannot be used to launch or throw objects with that great a force. Most adapted for fine or precise movement.
Lvl. 7d: Flight - Passive. Your telekinesis spell is magnified when used on yourself, allowing you to levitate and move yourself through the air using just the power of your mind.
Lvl. 8d: Force Of Will - Passive. Your Telekinesis Spell can move two objects at once or one object twice the normal size.
Race - human (thinks he's a regular wolf; 50% Timber, 50% Mackenzie Valley Wolf) Strength - human form = strong; wolf form = very strong Age - 18 (2 years in wolf form) Affiliations - Olo & Nervada Appearance & Apparel
Human form: black hair, deep amethyst colored eyes, obsidian skin that is as smooth as marble; he wears only the highest quality clothes (usually black), ones that won't restrict movement
Wolf form: deep amethyst colored eyes, thick obsidian-colored fur, 151lbs, muscled, 4.1 feet at the shoulder; wears a wolf skull on top of his head; 1, 2
Personality & Background - In Damek's mind, he was born a wolf to the King of a powerful nation in Doutaini, a kingdom that controlled the earth itself. His mother was a brute, however, and he quickly executed a plan to remove her from the family by making his father turn on her for 'abusing' Damek and his brother, Raksha. Then he manipulated a weaker she-wolf named Aegean to become his father's new mate...but his father grew wise to his cunning nature and banished him to the allied nation (the Wind pack) to learn respect. Damek found himself with the opportunity to ask the Wind Alpha, Nikolai, to teach him how to hide his cruel nature. It was the death of his father (who worked himself to death in order to gain the Gods' favor) that fueled him to flee Doutaini. Before departing, Damek stole a necklace from the gods, one containing the powers that they granted only their most Blessed followers. He incorrectly believes it grants him the ability to shift into human form. In actuality it is the result of his lifetime exposure to magic. However, he finds his two-legged form weak and sticks to wolf body. A warning to all, he wears the skull of wolf atop his head in honor of the King of the Wind pack, Nikolai. It's a snug fit, as he's worn it since he was 6 months old.
Upon discovering the world outside of Doutaini, Damek wandered for quite some time, a lone wolf without a home. In his travels, he met a fellow she-wolf named Rai Dame who he found was born in Doutaini, as he was. Their pissing contest left them with the revelation that they were actually cousins. Damek wished her well but dismissed her and continued on his way. Eventually he ran into two mercenaries named Olo and Nervada. The harsh landscape left him desperate for water, so he attempted to take their canteens. They fought him off (two against one, of course, which was the only reason they could do so) and eventually Damek got some information from them on the magic system and their goals. He learned a bit of the human world as they made their way to the nearest town. Upon reaching it, Olo extended an alliance to him: help them on their missions and they would share the flow of gold...and power. Damek reasoned that even if they were lying (which they likely were), he could use their extra hands to get more gold so that he could buy stronger magics. He gave them 25gold as a show of 'good faith,' warning them that he could easily take it back if they dared try to trick him. In exchange for being taught the ways of humans (by Olo), Damek swore to join them in their quest to gain power and money. Both of which Damek also needs for himself to gain enough power to one day destroy Doutaini.
Damek is arrogant, chauvinistic, vain, charismatic, manipulative, rebellious, and power-hungry. He has no respect for woman (or anyone else really), unless they somehow prove themselves, and seeks to one day have a harem of his own. He's morally corrupt but he does possess some: he won't kill pups (children) or anyone who has not wronged him...but he won't go out of his way to help them either.
Transformation - Damek can shift between human and wolf form, but this takes minutes to complete.
Apex Predator - While in wolf form Damek can activate the effects of nocturnalize, amphibiate, or toxify at any given time. (one at a time)
LSS - Monolith lv. 4

On Dyfed’s richest valley,
Where herds of kine were browsing,
We made a mighty sally,
To furnish our carousing,
Fierce warriors rushed to meet us;
We met them, and o’erthrew them:
They struggled hard to beat us;
But we conquered them, and slew them.
As we drove our prize at leisure,
The king marched forth to catch us;
His rage surpassed all measure,
But his people could not match us.
He fled to his hall-pillars;
And, ere our force we led off,
Some sacked his house and cellars,
While others cut his head off.
We there, in strife bewildr’ing,
Split blood enough to swim in:
We orphaned many children,
And widowed many women.
The eagles and the ravens
We glutted with our foemen;
The heroes and the cravens,
The spearmen and the bowmen.
We brought away from battle,
And much their land bemoaned them,
Two thousand head of cattle.
And the head of him who owned them:
Ednyfed, king of Dyfed,
His head was borne before us;
His wine and beasts supplied our feasts,
And his overthrow, our chorus.
Thomas Love Peacock, The War-Song of Dinas Vawr
Stats & Facts Name: Eldaréon Cú Culainn Titles/Aliases/Nicknames: Hound-Slayer Sex: Male Race: Elf Age/Height/Weight: 30/6'0"/175 lbs. Appearance: A mien of sun-golden hair, plentiful as a lion’s mane, the full length falls to his shoulders in wind-tossed ringlets. It is braided along the hairline and pulled back behind his sharp pointed ears, tied into a leather-wrapped cord adorned by a legend of runic foliage. A face of stern angles, and high cheekbones, it is thin and angular. Storm-gray eyes that are like whirring skies on a cloud filled day, they are intensely contemplative. Deadly conditioning; a sleek, graceful and slender physique tightly corded in muscle. An unassuming demeanor, but one that some how is always poised to spring into violence at a pindrop. A sweet smell of earthen places and fauna follows him, punctuated by the pollen of wild flowers. Apparel: A sleeveless tunic with high-collar done in golden scroll work, quilted and dyed a deep blue, connected to a skirt addition of simple dark leather. Comfortable yet sturdy calf-high boots, covered with etched golden leather greaves; matching leather vambraces also of dark gold, cover his entire forearms to the elbow. A braided necklace strung with polished quartz, of deep viridian and mossy greens hangs from around his neck. Background: From one of the oldest elven families of Greevan, he has always felt a deep connection with the forest, and his martial spirit that was always familial in nature. Fostered with the Sentinels at a young age because he was such a fierce child, Eldaréon learned much of the forest and his family’s history with them; and he also learned survival, but more importantly a way to channel his lusts for battle into an oneness which focused his fury to a single, tempered point. The boy grew fast, and soon became a man, and much of his adult life has been as a fighter. He took a journey west in his adolescence but he doesn’t much speak of that. Upon returning, he has taken up a vow to be a pillar of strength for the elves, joining the Warrior society to further his path. Affiliations: Warrior's
Skills/Attributes Blessèd of the Elders
A child of the forest, Eldaréon was anointed from birth to a great destiny that would be as rampant and fecund as the ancient trees of Greevan. To be in his presence is to feel the wild pulse of nature itself; the towering shadow of a Sentinel tree reaching to the sky; the quiet compression of the trees at night bursting with the dance of life and death, though not a single creature be within your sight. He is a giant spirit, of a greater eminence and nobility than that of the most steadfast of heroes.
– Battle intimidation. Passive: Soothe-effect on allies.
– Natural Strength: Strong The Bond of War Runneth Deep and Doth Not Tireblood calls to blood Ancestral Bond(DAK) - Daréon is a prince of battle, descending from an ancient bloodline which dates back to that of the first elves, and the elders of his people. A ferocious warrior, whose fierceness and mastery in battle are only matched by his physical perfection. An aura of superiority surrounds him, causing lesser men to shrink from his presence. As his spirit grows fiercer and is fed in battle, his forerunners take notice of his prowess. They may appear to train and assist him, offering advice or granting boons of their ancient knowledge of war.
Level 1: Stygian Counsel – You can ask your ancestors for advice and guidance. Their answers will be helpful, though rarely clear.
Level 2: Aethelred - One of Eldaréon's ancestors; an ancient, grizzled looking elf, especially taciturn. He bears an eye-patch and the rags of what's left of a large tattered cloak. He is wielding a vicious looking quarterstaff, and two wickedly sharp long-knives. Taught Eldaréon a sharp lesson on balance. (Extended Body)
Level 3: You gain the ability to summon a minor ancestral spirit who will aid you in some way. That spirit does not require maintaining but vanishes after 3 posts.
Level 4: Your ancestor’s faith in you as a true scion of their line strengthens, and their advice becomes clearer, even when you don’t really want it.
Level 5: An ancestor manifests to teach/grant you a moderate ability.
Level 6: You gain the ability to summon a lesser ancestral spirit who will aid you in some way. That spirit does not require maintaining but vanishes after 5 posts.
Level 7: An ancestral spirit will appear, guiding you to a hidden item related to your family line.
Level 8: An ancestor manifests to teach/grant you a major ability.
Level 9: You gain the ability to summon a major ancestral spirit who will aid you in some way. That spirit does not require maintaining but vanishes after 1 post.
Level 10: Your ancestors bestow upon you the knowledge of a ritual spell. These spells require two spells to maintain and are quite powerful. In addition, you are able to extend your summoned ancestral spirit manifestations maintaining them like summons.
With a Burning Spear Between red death and radiant desire
With not one sound of triumph or of warning Rushdown - A cold singleness possesses Daréon when fighting, he is a relentless whirlwind of steel and fury.
- Level 1: You learn how to expertly maintain your footing while in motion, allowing you to more easily fight on the move.
Bonds of War
Techniques or otherwise trained abilities Eldaréon has been bestowed by his ancestral elven brothers.
> Extended Body - Your weapon is a part of you, and in all situations you should not be afraid to use it. When falling, being knocked back, or in anyway unbalanced, Eldaréon has trained his body to react instinctively with his weapon, allowing him to prop, wedge or vault himself into a better position. Greatly improves his balance, making it very hard to trip or topple him.
Spells Spirit Level 1 Divine – Sense if any spirits are in the area and their general mood. Level 2 Vibe – Send out a wave of spirit energy that can sense the general direction of any hostility aimed at you.
Accessories Non-Magical Magical
Weapon Items Magical
> Skye-piercer: A beautifully worked polearm of elven-craft. The shaft itself is 4’ of white ancient Scarwood, inlaid with twisting ivy-fringed vines; it may be extended to its full length of 9’ in total under the user’s will. The spear blade is 2’ in length, coming to a wicked recurving point in the shape of a broad-headed leaf etched with silver filigree like fallen snow. (6’ retracted; 9’ extended)
1. Strong as Steel; mends at accelerated rate.
2. May grow or shrink to its standard/full length under wielders control.

[B]Appearance & Apparel[/B] – Jougo appears to be a man with a lions mane and eyes. He also has fur around his wrists and ankles. Jougo wears a tattered sportcoat over a vest and shirt, he also wears paints that seem to have no exact color from years of stains soaking into them. He stands 5’10” with an average build. He dyes his mane a green color with various natural dyes and paints his face in various stages of extreme laughter.
Personality– Quick to temper. Thinks everything is meant for his amusement. Likes flash and style.
[B]Background[/B]–Having never cared for the rules he grew up with as a child, Jougo wandered through the forests around his hometown frequently to avoid them. One day he met an odd female Jakari he hadn’t seen before. She painted her snow white fur to be half red. And she danced with lots of brash movement that jarred the bells she wore. If she was going for attention, she passed that point long ago. This was an artist seeking a worthy audience. And so to see if she was as useful as she was graceful, Jougo made a small fire at her feet. She quickly looked from the fire, to the forest then to Jougo. As she started to smother the fire, Jougo felt an interesting sensation. His head got lighter and he began to be happy. He shook his head to clear away this odd feeling, and he was surprised to see her standing by him when his head stopped moving. After a brief exchange, Jougo and [B]Akane[/B] became friends. They had a great many times playing with strangers who ventured too close to their camps, and not every one of the strangers lived through their “play.” When they got bored of the audiences available in their home towns, they left seeking the bigger world and the oddities it held.
[B]Lvl 1:[/B] Summon a 3" diameter sphere of fragile force magics filled with a burning heat. On impact the sphere breaks and releases the heat in a small burst. Flammable materials are ignited by this effect and impact on people is uncomfortable.
[B]Lvl 2:[/B] The heat contained in the grenades combusts upon breaking, creating an expanding ball of fire that reaches the size of a canteloupe.
[B]Lvl 3:[/B] When the grenade breaks, its force spell reverts to force magic, releasing an expanding ball of repelling force along with the fire, reaching the same diameter and hitting the force of a shove (Average adult human strength).
[B]Lvl 4:[/B] The explosive range of the grenades is increased to three feet, though the force and heat diminish further from the epicenter of the blast.
[B]Ricochet Rocket Ride!:[/B] Projectiles that Jougo launches can be made to bounce undamaged off a single solid surface, they must follow a plausible trajectory as they bounce off the surface, retaining all their momentum.

List tags are malformed.
Name - Akane (meaning: red dye) Race - Jakari Age - 23 Strength: Average Affiliations - Mages/Thief ==> Oathbreaker
Appearance & Apparel : She looks like an erectly walking snow leopard; white fur with black open rosettes on her body--with small spots of the same color on her head and larger spots on her tail and legs. Her tail is unusually long and thick. For any 'big performances' she must make, she paints the right half of her body bright red (with natural dyes); on occasion she also dyes the left side of her body black, to contrast with the red. Her eyes are a dull green. She's roughly 5'2'' and weighs 115lbs. Over all of that dyed fur, Akane wears as little clothing as possible. Her goal? To be as eye-catching and distracting as she can. Attention? She loves it. She likes to wear a simple jester hat with bells in addition to bells around her wrists and ankles. The clothing she does wear seems to be gypsy-like, silky and flashy and always a shade of black, white, or red. She's slender and (naturally) cats always land on their feet, so she doesn't easily lose her balance and is a natural gymnast; 1, 2, 3
Personality - quick to anger but also quick to get over it; seemingly never serious; all play; devoted to her mate and oblivious to any of his faults; she loves to dance and is quite the attention-seeker
Background - Ever the oddball with her erotic dancing and the obsession with painting her own fur unnatural colors, Akane knew it was fate when she met her darlin' Jougo. They even shared the same interests: extravagant displays and sadistic tendencies. It was love at first sight for Akane who has been at his side ever since their first 'play date'. Now that they've decided to take their show to the cities, Akane is certain they'll have even more fun with a wider audience.
Ability to sense items with strong magics (thief)
Magical item: a small flower (worn just below the shoulder blade, in front) - can produce a stream of water in short sprats; the water is direct-able by aiming the flower
Eat all the berries: after years of eating the brightest, most toxic berries she could find, her body has grown a natural immunity to toxins and poisons.

Two Baby Griffons, Bud and Lou - Descended from both kitties and birdies, this animal is the epitome if cuteness. It adds a level of charisma to its owner, and may be targeted by bestial spells as though it were a summoning. It also levels up like a mini-lss (Storm)!

2: the griffin learns to fly, reaching a maximum height of ~10 feet. The downside to this is it still isn't potty trained. NOT CUTE, GRIFFIN 3: the baby griffin grows to be about 2 feet tall at the shoulder with a wingspan of 8 feet. It's maximum flight height is about 20 feet, and its claws sharpen so it can hunt with dive bombs and generally scratch people. It's still cute though.

Accomplishments in Thievery

Stats & Descriptions Name – Eizen Yigal (Changing Nervada’s last name, since Eizen had it first. *Steals*) Race - Dryad Age – Older than you are, younger than that guy over there. Height - 6'0'' Strength: Average Affiliations - Mage/Thief ==> Oathbreaker Appearance: Eizen is a dusky-skinned dryad with aged features. His swaying needle-like hair is inky black (was a sickly whitish green) and his skin looks gnarled and twisted. His teeth appear to be made out of a greenish amber, which is likewise the color of his eyes and nails. Apparel : Simple brown/black clothes and an equally simple black rope belt. He wears a brown clock with an ample hood. Personality – Eizen is a exceptionally calm individual. Don't let that fool you though - He can be anything from mildly content to somewhat disappointed! Background – Taking his name from a dying old man (no heirs and a history of good deeds = valuable name), Eizen has set out to acquire stuff. He joined some groups that did stuff he liked, and now he sets off to do and aquire more stuff. He's not very particular.
The Wanderings of Eizen > Was captured while trying to deliver goods, escaped death pit.
> Foiled attempt to trick him and employer into delivering some sort of grove-destroying weapon instead of regular goods.
> Somehow got caught up in the Greevan war (while trying to sell goods).
> Helped convince Herschell's rival that signing over every thing he owned and happily skipping town was a definitely a thing he should do.
> Somehow let the thieves guild talk him into helping a crew rob a mighty Scion family blind (and setting their mansion on fire). Worked out okay, at least.
Tranquil Night- Despite his looks, Eizen carries a serene yet distinguished air about him that aids him when interacting with others. (Racial Dryad Charisma effect)
Void Realm: Eizen has a special affinity for void-type effects. This affinity has enhanced his void spell, allowing him to stuff basically any object into the void, although larger objects take longer to push through. Once inside the void, the objects are held in stasis (they do not rot, etc) until he commands a specific object to be pushed out of the void space [Normal objects can be pulled out of thin air as normal, while larger ones take a few seconds]. His void space is less like a pocket and more like a warehouse dimension. Still cannot intentionally stuff living creatures into the void.
ABYSS - Your attunement to dark magics passively alters your body, stirring your inner darkness and turning you into an embodiment of ineffable shadows. Through concentration you can, if necessary, cause these changes to demanifest temporarily, though doing so drains your focus and ability to use spells. Lvl 1.Your skin becomes dusky and as cold as a corpse. Your mind is filled with shadows and cannot be altered by external magics. Lvl 2. You can see in darkness easily as light and cannot be blinded. Lvl 3. Your skin develops swirling, shifting patterns of darkness beneath the skin. Your grasp creates the sensation of being bitten by a hundred tiny mouths. Lvl 4. Your hair becomes inky black seems to sway and move independently from your head's movements. By touching a wall or the ground, you can create a shadow there, in your shape and dimensions, anchored to that surface. This shadow cannot be dispelled by normal light and causes icy damage to any that touch it. Can only have three of these active at once. Only last an hour. Lvl 5. If wounded, the darkness beneath your skin gain substance, biting into your flesh and skin to stitch, suture, and staple it back together This is not painless. Lvl 6. Some of your subdermal darkness moves to the surface, taking the appearance of strange runic tattoos that constantly change and move. If you grab someone for more than a moment, some of these "tattoos" will move them to them. They remain until the end of the encounter, sapping the warmth and hope from them, weakening them by a level. Lvl 7. Your inner shadows reduce your weight, giving a minor boost to your leaping ability and agility. The shadow "tattoos" that cover your body can bite and cling to surfaces, even through thin clothing, allowing you to stick to walls and ceilings like an insect. Lvl 8. Your "tattoos" become more numerous. Shadows wisp occasionally from your mouth and nose like smoke. You can, once per encounter, spew your inner darkness out from your mouth to form an intangible, barely perceivable shadowclone of yourself, taking with it your consciousness. This leaves your body, now unchanged by the Shade ability, limp and helpless but allows you to travel in this shadowform anywhere within 200' of your body. You can cast a single spell each post through this shadowform. If your body is dealt any damage, this effect will end. Lvl 9. You can use shadows you have anchored as portals between each other. Once every 7 posts. Lvl 10. You learn to harness your attunement for a custom ability based on your personality and shadows.
Bark the Root Wolf - A small pup made of living wood, with black grass fur, that will grow into a fearsome companion as Eizen increases his understanding of dark and plant magic. Stands 4" at the shoulder and just under 6" long not counting the tail. (Can only be leveled to level 5)
Eye of Avarice (Oathbreaker benefit) - Items with strong magics within Eizen's visual range give off an orange aura (to him).
The Red Deck - The bread and butter of any Thief, the skills taught to them by the organization that accepted them into their ranks.
Appraisal - The ability to evaluate and qualify items.
Lvl 1. Able to estimate the standard gold value of most items that are worth enough to care about.
> Can't take bounties
> Can’t use metal weapons/armor.
Jougo's Dagger (Fire Mage Dagger) - An iron kris dagger with an obsidian hilt and a dragons-head pommel. As long as the blade is not in contact with a body, it can rapidly heat and reforge itself into any shape Eizen can visualize. This does not change its mass.
2 bone throwing knives Eizen carries on his belt.
25 sets of spare clothes, all identical to his normal clothes.
A bone toolbox
Eizen's definition of what counts as loot is quite... broad compared to the average person. Well, lets just say this section is going to get really long.
The loot hoard:
> 1 burnt shirt that belongs to Golan, Firemage
> The shoes of a carriage driver that worked for Pearl.
> One bowl of gourmet soup. As delicious as it is drugged.
> A spoon.
> 8 beds. Decently made with straw mattresses.
> A luxurious mahogany chair with leather padded cushions on the seat and back.
> 2 human-sized Mirrors.
> 8 Writing Desks
> An empty crate
> 8 Lanterns
> A pile of newspapers soaked in some kind of alcohol (probably)
> 2 pieces of Coal
> 3 Journals written in Common, Kindir, and Garr respectively
Felix's Hammer(Void) - An enchanted golden toolbox-sized hammer that, with a Tap, passes on its enchantedness to another object. This allows normal objects to regenerate as though they were magic items. Takes about 10 minutes. Once the item is repaired the effect ends and the hammer can be used again on another object. Made of some weird mage-friendly faux-gold (mod 4).
Falseheart Oil(void) - Alters the powers and sometimes appearance of any item it is applied to to reflect THE OPPOSITE of its owner.
Ritual of the Savior(Void) - A scroll made of some strange bluish material detailing how to use the material along with a pure-arted Lutharin crystal to form a pact with a guardian spirit, granting the user a powerful summon that will self-cast itself if the user is helpless and unable to defend themselves. The summon will remain until the user is safe [or dead]. The exact nature of the summon depends on the art of the crystal, the location the ritual is performed, and the inner spirit of the user. The user cannot cast the summon on their own. The scroll and the crystal are consumed by the ritual.
Canopy Key(Void) - A guardless dagger of bleached wood, a perfect emerald adorning its hilt. The dagger can be sunk into any sizeable shadow to animate and grant control of that shadow. The level of animation, corporeality and control is wildly unpredictable, but is usually enough to be helpful (WM determined). It may alternatively be used to slice through any shadow larger than Eizen himself and open up a staircase into a personalised bedroom, whose location shifts to wherever the staircase is opened.
Guardian Oak(void) - The charred limbs of the oaks that barred their paths. The wood may carved to unlock a power based on living plant life, tinted with fire.
Refined Comb(Void) - Allows you to control the length of your hair and nails.
Ruby Imbued Chitin Glove(Worn)
Spirit Totem - Rudely carved marble figurine of a laughing man, which is clearly intended to be Erin. Grants knowledge of the rare unleveled spirit spell "Erin's Ward."
- Erin's Ward - Raise a protective dome of spirit energy around you, glowing softly with a rose light. This dome is as hard as iron, and painful to touch for those with ill intentions toward the caster.
> Erin's Boon - A small silver coin, on one side depicting Erin smiling and winking at you, on the other side an engraving, somehow, of the shapeless and formless chaotic void. Grants the skill "Touch of Moonlight." Touch of Moonlight - The world may be a messed up, effed up, chaotic place, but somehow you know how to find your place in the scheme of things a little better than most people. Things tend to go well for you, so that random chance events are tipped just that little bit toward your side. You're a little lucky to be alive, and you can feel it.
Dark Level 1 - Swathe - Cover yourself in a thin skein of utter blackness, allowing you to hide undetectably amongst shadows. Level 2 - Shroud - Summon forth a cloud of darkness around a target, 10" in diameter, that can't be pierced except by powerful magic light. Level 3 - Shadowcrawler(Spider Monkey) - Shape and animate your shadow into a summoned beast of living, solid darkness, icy and swirling, into the form of a Ateles fusciceps (Black-Headed Spider Monkey).
Level 4 - Midnight Champion - Your skin becomes ebon and runed with silver, with a mist of roiling shadows around you. You can leap as if you weighed a third of what you do. This shadowmist can flow over your weapons and armor, forming spikes and shards of solid blackness. You cannot cast or maintain other spells or summonings as long as you maintain this effect and for a post afterwards. Level 5 - Summon Agate Bats - Summon a dozen of bats with wings of shadow. These bats can use shadows as portals and travel between them, and their bodies possess the benefits of an agate imbue (All objects/creatures hitting/impacting them are repelled with equal force, hits/impacts made by the bats themselves are doubled in force).
Artless Void - Free Oathbreaker Exclusive Spell - Passive. Creates a pocket dimension you can access at any time, allowing you to seem to store items in, and retrieve items from, thin air. Can only be used with items you are physically holding and requires an extending and retracting of the arm to use. Cannot intentionally be used on living entities. (Void realm changes item limitations as noted above).
Tomes The Unlettered Caster(Dark) - A Tome that allows the bearer to create a 5th branch of one art (Chosen upon acquiring) with each level being picked from the spells of that level from the other branches. (For instance, you take 6A, 7B, 8C, 9D, 10A and copy them into a new 'E' branch)
Markers Acquired from Herschell:
6-gold Markers from: Colt, Stoz
30 Gold Marker from Roshem

I believe you are a friend of Magikeeper and his friends. MK should be able to advise you as to just what I mean.
On a more general note. It seems that alot people are making characters that transform into animals. I am not sure if this is just a way to get around the fact you can't play as sentient animals in the EW, but I rather we nip this trend in the bud. All the already posted ones including Rai can stay, but I ask people not make anymore new characters that turn into animals.
Stats & Facts Name - Morgan Lachance Race - Human (Elexian) Age - 21 Height - 5' 6" Appearance - Morgan is a charming young lady of an average height and of a lithe build. Her dark auburn hair is tied in a braid that falls between her shoulders. Two wisps of hair fall to frame her face making her sharp features seem a little softer than they otherwise might. Her eyes are a deep blue and dotted with flecks of whitish grey. Apparel - Morgan's choice of outfit is not just the first thing she grabbed before leaving home, but symbolic of the sense of freedom she gets from studying magic. Her riding clothes comprise boots, trousers, a blouse and jacket. All professionally tailored in Elexian style. The boots are soft, pliant brown leather with delicate embroidery around the tops. The trousers are a creamy colour, tight against the skin but incredibly flexible. The pale silvery silk of her blouse breathes enough to stop her getting too hot. Finally, her burgundy riding jacket is kept in a usable condition at all times, even if it does get a little dusty. In addition to this outfit, she also wears a silver locket around her neck constantly. Background - Morgan's father was an Elexian noble of reasonable standing, and in fact still is. Morgan was raised to be a proper lady and was courted by many who did not catch her eye in the slightest. Her mother passed away when she was relatively young, and though her father remarried a few years later Morgan never connected with the woman. Not that she had any ill will towards her, of course, she just wasn't her mother.
Morgan spent a lot of time going through her mother's old things, whenever she could sneak away from dance lessons or feign illness to avoid dinner with insufferable bores. It was on one such occasion that she found an old tome belonging to her mother, obviously magical in nature. Morgan spent all night reading about the energy manipulation of the twelve magical arts, and forgot she was supposed to be sick when her father caught her using it to summon a burst of wind. The esteemed Lord Lachance wouldn't have his daughter dallying with the magical arts when she should be entertaining suitors, so the book was locked away in his study. A year of frustration and curiosity went by as Morgan took every chance she could to either sneak a look at that tome or talk to anyone in Elexia who knew about magic.
One night, after her father went to sleep, she broke into his study and stole the book back into her possession. She left a note explaining that she was going to live her own life the way she wanted, she left Elexia behind her. Taking the book and her trusty mare with her she rode all the way to Greevan, acquiring a rudimentary knowledge of magics and joining the guild. Affiliation - Arbiter (Fraternity of Mages + Peacekeeper's Guild)
Skills and Abilities Fortune's Favour - Morgan's upbringing as the daughter of a nobleman has granted her a small selection of skills and manners that serve her well. Most notable among them, stitching, dance and equestrianism. A Moment to Learn - The field of magical learning is as wide and diverse as it is deep and powerful, a person can spend their whole life dedicated to a single magical art and not become a true master. Thus it is either intense hubris or boundless optimism that fuels those mages who pursue mastery of every magical art. Morgan LaChance is one of those few, seeking to learn as much as she can about every magical art. (Morgan's known spells and magical abilities.)
Makings of the War Mage A set of silvery metal war gear, etched with runes and studded with magical gems. Mage-metal is strong as iron and does not interfere with magical fields. The powers of Warmage Gear increase as the users magical knowledge base expands. Warmage Gauntlet - Right hand gauntlet made from a leather and plates of silvery mage metal, set with small gemstones and runes. Color of leather and gems reflect the art of their wearer's preferred magic.
>>Beastial Fusion - The Gauntlet can fuse and integrate into Morgan's, giving her hand exoskeletal plates of gem studded and runed bone. His fusing increases that arms strength by a level and the plates can be shifted to form talons, claws, spikes or alike.

Name – Rai Kashira Lyall-Dame Race - human (thinks she's a regular wolf; 50% Timber, 50% Mackenzie Valley Wolf) Age - Eighteen Affiliations - None Appearance & Apparel – Human form Red hair, brown ruddy skin, left eye: orange, right eye: purple, every so often her irises flicker to red, wears comfortable clothes that she can easily move in, scars littering her body (bite marks) Wolf form Russet upper coat, predominant white undercoat, left eye: orange, right eye: purple, every so often her irises flicker to red, 130 lbs, 3.5ft at the shoulder, scars littering her body Personality & Background – Rai believes that she was born as a wolf. Whelped into a twisted paligimist family, she was raised with love from her birth mother and taught how to fight and survive by her father as well as her second mother. Rai strives to be everything that her namesakes (her grandmother, Raisa, and her aunt, Kashira) had been and more. Stories from her mother about her great ancestors brought her to the place that she is now. She was also taught by her adopted mother about her father’s mother, the once great Jamaica Dame and her love of the ocean. True to be told, Rai seeks the power of all three elements that tie her to her ancestors. Raisa, her grandmother, the power of fire; Kashira, her aunt, the power of earth; Jamaica, her grandmother, the power of water; the lessons from her mother have set her up to be as ambitious as she can be.
She left her birth place with her family, only so she may continue her training. Her father wanted nothing more than to shape her into the next leader of the Dame family. Even though she had a brother, he believed that it was Rai that would take over what he had gained. While she has a sensible personality, she still has the temper of the very flames that she has come to accept as her own. She takes very little crap from anyone, and will put herself in harm’s way only to make her point known. Truly a spitfire, Rai is cunning and will do anything in her power to make her dreams come true. She wants nothing more than to make her dream a reality: to be supreme ruler of water, earth and fire. And nothing will stop her from this task. Not even the gods, whom she believed cursed her in an attempt to make her weak: forcing upon her the second form of a human.
-Transformation - Rai can shift between human and wolf form, but this takes five minutes to complete.

On the Wind, Across the Sea Name Tuesday d’Etrienne Age/Weight/Height 28/ 133 lbs./ 5’7” Appearance At a moderate height for women, Tuesday is fairly thin compared to her family members. Her slight figure is the result of much running and exercise, tumbling with her brothers and neighbors. Her bosom is also slight, much to her chagrin, though she often makes up for it with full cinnabar-colored lips, a dimpled smile, and eyes of pale sky grey. Her almost dark ruby hair is kept long, colored by some magical Sylvan product. It’s a bit wavy, and to her delight, stays mostly glossy as well. Apparel She wears loose black cotton leggings, tied around her waist with an emerald green sash. The sash is adorned with many small pins and charms, often small timepieces, clouds, and moons. She has low heeled dark brown leather boots, stylized with numbers up to twelve repeating embossed into the upper lip. She wears a cream colored blouse, loose enough to move in, but still ready to show off her figure. Over her blouse, she has a cut-off dark green leather jacket. On her right wrist, she has a machinist timepiece that doesn’t seem to tell the time (if accurately). On her left hand, she has a silver signet marketed with the seal of her House. History One daughter of a prominent Sylvan family which has invested much time in the fine upbringing of their children, Tuesday is perhaps a touch more whimsical than her sister Sunday. She studied arts generally unstudied by the Etrienne family, focusing on the interesting connections between storm magics and force, and realized one day, that enough practice and power would allow her to basically fly... She now seeks a bit of adventure with that freedom, and maybe someone to share her adventures with.
Skills and Abilities Defender: Strikes made with her shield have an increased strength effect of one, though she is normally not much of a fighter herself. Warrior: Tuesday is a member of the Warrior’s society, training in the formidable art of Counter Maneuvers.
Level 1: When one of your blows are blocked, you may strike back lightly to inflict half the damage that your strike normally would deal.
Wind Walker: As a fledgling dual-ist, Tuesday’s grasp of storm and force magics allows her to master a spell that lets her step upon air as if it were actual stairs.
Level 1: Generate an upwards burst of wind and raw force beneath your, slowing your descent if you fall uncontrolled, or allowing you to make a controlled descent from any height as if walking down an invisible flight of stairs.
1 - Drift - Thicken the air beneath you just enough that if you are falling it slows your decent and allows for a soft landing.
2 - Drain - Your touch can drain the bioelectricity from a person, tiring them and causing a brief spasm of weakness.
1 - Foothold - The next step you take meets equal upward force, allowing that step to land on a surface level with the last step you took, granting you an extra step or two over open air or liquid.
Dual Art (Storm/Force)
? - Windwalk - See above
Weapons Crest of the Moon: An old d’Etrienne relic, this kite shaped shield is made of a sturdy steel, polished to a mirror sheen on the outside. From the inside, various love notes have been carved into the shield over the years, by various amorous partners of the House d’Etrienne. Its edges are bladed.

Blarg He is a stuff talkin', foot step lickin' , magic stuff makin', stone drawin', and riddle speekin' crazy ol' coot and self proclaimed bad ass
Name Blarg Olcoot Race - Human Age - 68 Affiliations - none
Appearance & Apparel - A Scruffy but also muscular old man. With wirey gray hair with patches of red that age has yet to claim which seems to go in every direction. His left eye of his is quite bigger than the right and Blarg has lost a few teeth from misjudging the bitability of some dirt clumps in his day. Has a height of 6'2", but hunches down when standing, putting him usually around 5'5" tall. Wears tattered and dirty clothing, and has many diverse in color and shape beads in random places through out his person, in his hair, his clothes and shoes. The strange beads are not in any particular order, and appear as if he were splattered with sap and then tossed some beads which then decided to stay forever. Giving his hygiene, however, that may actually have been what happened.
Personality & Background - Who knows what it was in his history that has made him such a strange old man, but that is what is certain. He is a whacky, crazy old man. He tends to speak in riddles and frequently answers a question with another question. His favorite snack is dirt, yes dirt. His food was the first of the many non living things that ever talked to him, and boy did that turn him off of it. However, he does have to eat actual food to stay alive so he usually just adds dirt to whatever he consumes as if someone normal would add salt or other seasonings. Oh yes, he talks to inanimate objects. He can gather information from such things, but as it turns out things without minds, don't really have much useful information to offer half of the time, and are often very rude, not dirt though. Dirt is pretty much a go with the flow kinda thing.. it doesn't care much about very much, and its also tasty!

Stats & Facts Race - Nadrask Age - 67 Height - 6'2” Weight - 247 lbs Appearance and apparel- Tall and kettle-bellied, a prime Nadrask that let himself go. A wide, brown-eyed face, cleft chin sprouting a slender bush of dark hair, which the top of his head seemed incapable of mirroring, no matter how hard it tried. Sturdy legs and stiff arms, once muscular but transformed into mush after years of disuse. Tattoos of a devilish horn split half way down the center, one on each wrist and another on his throat. Clad in tan breeches, a large brown tunic and a pair of open sandals. Background
Curls of smoke slithered from his parched lips and draped across the lightless room, creeping slowly towards the cracked window. Beyond loomed an aloof sliver of a moon, hung high in the midnight black. Creaking of the rocking chair echoed through the still room, its wood slowly warping under the nadrask's weight. Mauf'kael inhaled, and his head slowly tipped forward clumsily.
He shook himself awake with a shiver. The tiredness has been getting to him in these late days. He would fall asleep in his seat, without so much as a struggle. It was the dead of of night, he should be out in the world, parting a frightened noblemen from his purse with a hiss. Or beating a frail and unfortunate victim on behalf of some faceless figure with a wrath. Someone would pay him for it, definitely; lots of people are in need of giving a good beating. But Maufr'kael was always in it for the rush more so than for the pay. The look of horror on a chump's face as he watched the nadrask's own expression become twisted and misshapen would send a refreshing, warm shiver down Maufr'kael's spine. His mates could never understand the satisfaction he derived from instilling terror in people. “Freak's a freak,” they would say.
Now he sat alone, cold, an aging man in his rocking chair, barely able to stay awake after nightfall. Maufr'kael exhaled and lowered his cigar. His marriage ruined him. It snatched him from his natural domain, cut him from the threads of his life, and chained him into the grind of family. His wife Amerasha gave him two daughters before she offed herself and left him to care for the children. And his daughters became even bigger ****s they he was in his heyday. He couldn't help but feel disappointed in them, though he could not explain why. Fatherhood brought strange changes.
His eyelids were slipping shut as he watched the glow of his smoke. Another puff brought some life to him, and he muttered a curse. This still life was unfit for him. He was rusting, falling apart. He needed an escape. He listened to the silence, inviting its eerie wisdom. His body had become a shell, stuffed with fat and puss. His youth was long past, but he yearned to live it again. A shiver crept through him. To feel the sweltering thrill of filling a man with panic. To tear through a man and then tear through a whorehouse. Maufr'kael fought away at the sleep. He was unready for retirement. He wanted to return to his free youth, to the adventure and excitement. No, he didn't want to, he needed to. Maufr'kael wasn't ready to live like a dead man yet. Slowly, the darkness seized him...
The fire reflected wildly in Maufr'kael's eyes, as though possessed with the spirit of a provocative dancer. The sight of his home burning down tore through him, cutting deep, tears bleeding down his face. Oh well. He was never much of a father anyway. The thought oddly comforted him. Realizing what had just passed through his mind, Maufr'kael became sick, and not just figuratively. He fell to his knees, vomitted, and his senses faded out in an instant.
Maufr'kael ignored the taunt. He took another sip from his mug, ignoring the large, drunken brute that approached him.
“How's it feel to murder your own kin, Nadrask? Feel good? Made you feel strong?”
“I didn't murder no one,” Maufr'kael muttered. Every few weeks he would be confronted by some would-be holy vindicator, accusing him of putting his house to flames while his daughters were still inside. He would always deny the charge, though no one ever appeared convinced. The peacekeepers had even publicly announced him innocent of the crime. But then again, Maufr'kael was known for telling the occasional golden lie.
“You don't need to lie to us. We know what you did. You don't gotta hide that you killed them innocent girls of yours.” And then he added with a sly grin, “Well, maybe not innocent, hehe.” This wouldn't be the first time Maufr'kael was thrown out of the Drunken Ass.
In a momentary blurr, the nadrask hopped form his stool, smashing his mug into the drunken oaf's ear. He clawed at the man's face with his fingers, the nails having grown into capable talons. He gashed at his cheeks and sliced the nose. The attacks were brutal, but Maufr'kael was careful to leave the eyes untouched. He had to, or else he could not enjoy watching them widen slowly, as the oaf's just did. The man coughed up blood in an effort to utter a word of horror as he watched the nadrak's face twist and distort. His brows curled inwards towards the elongated, fierce eyes. The nose grew smaller while the mouth extended and widened into a cruel smile, the lips slit in the corners, and his cheeks seemed to thin and fade into the bones behind them.
“Fuh.... Fre...,” the oaf tried to speak, but a final brutal smash of a mug took his consciousness from him. Maufr'kael stood above him, breathing heavily. He felt reinvigorated, younger than he had felt in years. How he missed the sensation. The nadrask remembered giving a slight howl before something knocked into the back of his head, and everything went black.
A sound in the distance called to him, and Maufr'kael slowly woke to a horrible migraine. His vision was blurred, but he recognized the shapes of long iron bars. He was in a prison cell. Someone stood at the cell's entrance. Was the door open? He couldn't tell.
“Freak? You awake, freak? Get up, freak. We got something for you. Found it in the trash outside. Made us think of you.”
Maufr'kael limped on to his side. It was the best he could do. The figure lost its patience, and punted something on the ground. It landed on the nadrask's lap.
“Dont'cha see?” Asked the figure at the cell door. “We got a freak for the freak.” He erupted into a crude laughter. Other officers in the detention area joined along. As his vision cleared, Maufr'kael could see what was kicked at him: A small beastling, just over half a foot in length, scarred and malnourished, with half an ear missing, and shaggy gray fur blown out in all directions. It stared at Freak with a mixture of pity, awe, and disgust.

Lvl 10. 475 BP Your experience allows you to develop your own custom special technique or maneuver employing this fighting style.
Heartseeker - The Heartseeker is a two handed double edged sword. It has three serrations on the right side, each one taking up about a third of the blades length, and one serration on the left side that goes half the blades length. Between the left serration and the hilt, the left side is dull so it can be held. The Pommel is barbed with spurs, and the Hilt is wrapped with crimson dragon scale, laced with a thick black substance that occasionally drips like blood. This weapon was painstakingly crafted by Colts distant ancestor and handed down from generation to generation of dragon hunters. It is as hard as Dragonbone but does not fire-prism enchantments placed on it, which Dragonbone would do.
Augments: Blood - The weapon cannot be forced from your hands by any means and slips from the grip of all others who would try to wield it.
- Heartseeker naturally points Colt towards any life-forces in the area, be they frolicking hares, looming bears or a mighty dragon, in a manner similar to a divining rod. The strength of the pull is dependent on the size and vitality of the life force. The black substance that runs from the hilt is dragon's bane toxin, a thick oil that inhibits healing in most creatures and is actively poisonous to reptiles.
- While the weapon is with you your spells per post are reduced by one.

It had to get done eventually, character assessments. Arranged alphabetically by username, then post order:
-Voli is approved. The new version is much more in keeping with existing world elements, and is pretty cool.
-I want to talk to you guys about your link group given Acelin's comment a while back about swapping out Damek with someone else. (All three are otherwise fine mechanically.)
-Akane is approved.
-Bobby is approved.
-Alexis is approved.
-Leef is not approved.
'Art of the Coveted' and 'Colorless' are both exceptionally powerful in the new environment. Colorless especially allows him to jump between all arts to no detriment.
-Aleck seems fine. I'd like some more flavour behind his abilities, but so long as the haunted house thing is social ability for digging up information and the 'who died' thing is a spirit magic ability, it should be fine.
-Mellem is approved, though she shouldn't still have a Thief chip left-over, I assume her starting chip went on Lvl 1 Pickpocketing.
-Kherren needs to be approved by someone else.
-Sling needs to be approved by someone else.
-Morgan needs to be approved by someone else.
-Alacritas is approved.
-Servius is approved.

-Eizen is approved (pending any extra dryad stuff you need to sort out with Quo).
-Hartigan is approved.
-Tuesday is approved.
-'She' is approved.
-Blarg is approved. Not sold on his Sandblast gloves, need to check with Bane how Spellforging works for that. Oh, he should have access to level 2 spell forging, because of 'Dirty Trick' though, right?
-Celia is approved.
-Eldareon is approved.
-Raine is approved.
-Rai is approved.
-Lucian is approved.
