Personal Info: Curudin Ahmaquissar is the leading cleric/Rogue of Erevan Ilesere in Silverymoon and Everlund and master of the secret elven Rogues guild known as "The Rogues of the Laughing Twilight" in the same cities. Exiled from Evermeet at the age of 60 for pranks and mischief that went awry, he is known throughout the city as "The Mischiefmaker of Silverymoon" but none know that he is also the leader of the elven thieves guild. Curudin is extremely handsome even in the eyes of other elves. He is quick, witty, clever, charming, intelligent, alluring and has a completely chaotic disposition on life.

Blessed by the Trickster at the elven age of 10, he had mischief written in his eyes and a scar in the middle of his chest in the form of an Asymmetrical star burst. He is a hedonist in every sense of the word and thoroughly enjoys debauching others. He hardly ever has his eyes shut. Quick to laugh and even quicker to prank and trick everyone and anyone from the very powerful to the poor. He is very good in melee combat and has a tremendous amount of luck on his side. It is said by other elves who meet him that he is highly favored by his god Erevan, as his eyes gleam with otherworldly asymmetrical stars whenever he dons a sardonic grin or wry smile. Curudin is the consummate trickster, and the perfect, living mortal example of mischief incarnate! Change and excitement are the spices of his life, and he is always trying to reinvent himself and others, playing pranks that both amuse and enlighten. He has been blessed a special and rare gift from Erevan Ilesere and is known as Trickster-Touched.

Curudin has never been caught at anything involving thievery, pranking, tricking, games, wenching, scouting, shadowing, hiding, etc... etc... He runs the Midnight Gambol of Erevan every month and invites all who happen upon it. He is wild, mischievous, independent, and utterly unpredictable, playing pranks on others for the sheer joy of it, and can be found deep in sylvan glades among the fun-loving subjects of the Seelie Court.

In the city of Silverymoon and Everlund his guild of elven rogues steal only from other thieves and give back to the proper owners half of what was initially stolen from them. They run out of town those thieves, and will even fight other rogues who try to set up shop in the city. So far they have never failed. He owns 3 taverns in Silverymoon. One is for elves only, another is for mixed crowds, and the last is a brothel which fronts as a winery. Curudin also owns 4 taverns and inns in Everlund where the Guild is based. Two taverns outside the city walls and two inside near the Dwarf Bridge section of the city. Curudin is known by Alustriel Silverhand and others of high rank in the city, but leave him alone for the most part for his efforts to run out other thieves entering the city. His tricks and pranks on the other hand push all who encounter him to the very edge of sanity and reason... even becoming violent! But not a single person can point a finger directly at him for anything linking him to these pranks and tricks.

He is also a well known adventurer and hero in the northlands, having spent most his life so far in absolute danger and peril. He is never one to be scared or frightened and usually laughs in the place of fear. His career has a long list of very worthy accomplishments, including stealing from Fzoul Chembryl, Semmemmon, The Vampire manshoon, Storm Silverhand, Mintipur Moonsilver, Alustriel Silverhand, Mirt the Moneylender, and countless other kings, warlords and the like. All of them have never been able to catch him as of yet.

He is most famous, or infamous, for his risky and daring thefts of other churches, temples and faiths, including those of Bane, Shar, Tyr, Helm, Talona, Auril, Mask, Torm, Grazz't, Beshabba, Tymora and others. Just recently (1374-75) he was hired by Khelben Arunsun and The Moonstars to go on a extremely difficult mission to sneak into Shade Enclave and steal a item of invaluable price and power from the city of Shade and its leaders. The mission was successful and the item was stolen and laid into the hands of Khelben, but not without its losses. Curudin, being a Divine deciple of Erevan Ilesere couldn't help but play a wicked deadly trick on Prince Clariburnus and Prince Yder before making his daring escape in which he lost his prized dice almost at the cost of his life!

And to add to all this... as well as he is known, he is also just as unknown it seems, and he prefers to keep it that way as long as possible. He is quick to laugh and has a very healthy sense of humor... sometimes light and frivolous, and other times dark and sardonic.

As of 1375 he has been seen moving between Silverymoon and Waterdeep, and has been spotted spending a great deal of time with Elaith "the serpent" Craulnober and Fox-at-Twilight as of late. Last night, Khelben Arunsun, having seen them at the Hidden Dagger tavern, quietly said to himself that Elaith would do well to frequently check his belongings, and to never underestimate the chaotic power of a wicked Prank or Trick; Especially one performed by Curudin Ahmaquissar!!

((Spell Plague and 100 years later. 1475 DR.))

Here's the guild members in short... "The Rogues of the laughing Twilight"

Curudin Ahmaquissar: Male Moon elf (stats above)

Laeirlefain Starleaf: Male Copper elf, Rogue 7/ Combat Trickster 3/ Tempest 4/ Divine Champion 4 of Erevan Ilesere.

Mitzlevexven Leafbower: Male Moon elf, Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Arcane Trickster 7.

Tezryn Ilystin : Male Drow Elf, Rogue 5/ Cleric 5/ Daggerspell Priest of Erevan Ilesere 5.

Seareghade Shimmerstar: Male Moon elf, Illusionist 15/ Arcane Devotee 5 of Erevan Ilesere. (3ED version)

Terrindill Shaelarra: Male Gold elf, Rogue 5/ Shadowdancer 10/ Shadow Lord 3. (Shadow walker template)

Cepheus Nightsong: Male Star elf, Bard 20

Shen-Shen Mistriven: Female Gold elf, Spellthief 18

Quintillis The Wry: Male gold elf, Rogue 5/ Divine Seeker 5/ Temple raider 10. of Erevan Ilesere.

Nym Nightsong: Male Star elf, Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Shadow Adept 10. (Shade Template)

Saffrathila Winterbough: Female Copper elf, Rogue 5/ Cleric 5/ Mystic Wanderer 10 of Erevan Ilesere.

Zallathel Amarillis: Male Moon elf: Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Mage-Killer 10.

Sathalindle Selorn: Male Wild elf: Scout 5/ Cleric 5/ Luck Master 5/ of Erevan Ilesere.

Pheyloo Winterbough: Male Copper elf: Rogue 5/ Assassin 10/ Superior Knife Thrower 5.

All are followers of Erevan Ilesere and are very devoted to each other, mischief and the city of Silverymoon and Everlund. Their pranks range anywhere from making livestock talk, giving a bad stench to someone, turning somebody the colors of Erevan, freezing the bath water of a noble while they were bathing, animating objects to dance and sing, subtly cutting the belt of a warrior so it falls when they reach for their weapon, turning a persons wine or ale into milk or sand, Altering the appearance of someone to look like a Satyr, casting a spell to make a Bard sound like a bugbear, etc... etc.. But also, they are called upon to search and locate ancient elven artifacts and treasures long lost before falling into the wrong hands. And if powerful elven artifacts do fall into the wrong hands then they are also called upon to act as elven assassins to search, find and destroy these wizards and sorcerers who would weild the ancient elven magic. But keep in mind, they do so their own way, on their own terms, for their own reasons, which always lead back to Erevan Ilesere, and the ways of his dogma. As of early 1375 they are in the employment of Khelben Arunsun and working with the Moonstars towards major events soon to come in the year. They have found "The Shattering Swords of Coronal Ynloeth" along with his Bracer, as well as The ancient Dwarven weapon "Twinblades Alight".

((Continuing the story)) ((1475 DR.))

Over the hundred years of the change of Faerun the guild has grown very strong. Based in Everlund and prominent in the cause and effect of city life in and surrounding The Silver Marches. Making enemies of Shar and Zhents, Thay and The Empire of Shadow. Churches of Tyr and Helm put bounties on their heads. Assassins and killers are paid to land a blow against them all in the name of religion. Curudin is utterly devoted to the people but holds a hidden streak of mischief that causes more drama than needed. It seems Curudin thrives on this bout of Anarchic disposition and has been putting all of this in motion with the laughing voice of his god and fate. Now in charge of 19 specialized, talented rogues, Curudin guides them to their potential in the world of Erevan. Shadow is coming... And Shadow matches shadow in the light of the end. Erevan has given to Curudin a Shadow element in which the future is ablaze with hard times and sharp steel. Between Baaetezu, Tanar'ri, Fey'ri, Paladins of the lawful, monarchs of the forcefull, and all who can't laugh, the war zone hits home and the devoted of Erevan Ilesere laugh from the shadows like the Rogues they are.

You never know when mischief goes awry!

I'm sure Erevan Ilesere will grant the mischiefmaker a grace to know who's causing trouble in "his" city.

Get back to me when you bring them in. I'll give you any insight that I can.

My longest running character. Curudin. Going to hang him up as a NPC as of this weekend. One last weekend with The Mischiefmaker. Hope to level up at least once and not die along the way. If he lives.... NPC he goes... and what a wicked, amazing NPC he makes.

Trickster Touched... chosen... remarkable. Thanks to Erik De Bie for support on Erevan Ilesere and all my gamers. This weekend will be epic!! A weekend campaign at level 16-18... Hope Curudin survives!!

Great stuff as usual CEV. I hope he survives. I would be interested in hearing more about this character...

Terrindill Shaelarra: Male Gold elf, Rogue 5/ Shadowdancer 5/ Shadow Lord 2. (Shadow walker template)

I am working on a female gold elf who is a Favored of Vhaeraun, who is still alive and well in my game.

Good luck. May the Trickster smile on your endeavors.

edit: Also, which sourcebook is the fanged mask from?

Hey Fell, I have them on sheet, and updated, but not online. And as a Chef I have little time to do much anymore. But... I would LOVE for you to pick one of my NPC/PC from the Rogues of The Laughing Twilight. Seriously, feel free to have at it. Then you and I can compare our stats and see how similar or different they are. And also... please use any Rogue in game and let me know how things went and how you played the PC.

Sweet. Thanks. CEV.

I am searching for information regarding the church of Erevan in Silverymoon (though Everlund may be a better choice?). I am currently working on a backstory for a Trickster-Touched Changeling Rogue/Psion (Telepath). With your permission, I would like to post it here for your critique. I will probably also ask ESdB for his permission to use his scroll and ask his opinion.

Basically what I've got so far is that at some point during the ToT, the Changeling (I call her Nin) encountered a lone elf outside of Silverymoon. This was actually Erevan in physical form. Much to his delight, the young Nin attempted to deceive and rob him. Easily seeing through her disguise, he blessed her and directed her to "his church" where she was fostered for a time. I may even use Curudin as something of a mentor and one of the few that know her true identity.

As for stating up members of the Laughing Rogues, I have two similar characters I am working on. One, the aforementioned Sun-elf, Vhaerun's Favored (modified Shade/Shadow Walker template) , may bear some superficial resemblance to Terrindill Shaelarraor perhaps Nym Nightsong, but as a member of the EV, her motivations will differ greatly. One of her companions is a sadistic mass-murdering psychopathic Redcap Quickling which was why I had hoped to see what you have done with Azdeim Insilnarufen.

Anyway, as always, thanks for sharing. Any insights are appreciated.

Love is a lie. Only hate endures. Light is blinding. Only in darkness do we see clearly.

"Oh, you think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but.. blinding. The shadows betray you because they belong to me." - Bane The Dark Knight Rises

Personal Info: Curudin Ahmaquissar is the leading cleric/Rogue of Erevan Ilesere in Silverymoon and Everlund and master of the secret elven Rogues guild known as "The Rogues of the Laughing Twilight" in the same cities. Exiled from Evermeet at the age of 60 for pranks and mischief that went awry, he is known throughout the city as "The Mischiefmaker of Silverymoon" but none know that he is also the leader of the elven thieves guild. Curudin is extremely handsome even in the eyes of other elves. He is quick, witty, clever, charming, intelligent, alluring and has a completely chaotic disposition on life.

Blessed by the Trickster at the elven age of 10, he had mischief written in his eyes and a scar in the middle of his chest in the form of an Asymmetrical star burst. He is a hedonist in every sense of the word and thoroughly enjoys debauching others. He hardly ever has his eyes shut. Quick to laugh and even quicker to prank and trick everyone and anyone from the very powerful to the poor. He is very good in melee combat and has a tremendous amount of luck on his side. It is said by other elves who meet him that he is highly favored by his god Erevan, as his eyes gleam with otherworldly asymmetrical stars whenever he dons a sardonic grin or wry smile. Curudin is the consummate trickster, and the perfect, living mortal example of mischief incarnate! Change and excitement are the spices of his life, and he is always trying to reinvent himself and others, playing pranks that both amuse and enlighten. He has been blessed a special and rare gift from Erevan Ilesere and is known as Trickster-Touched.

Curudin has never been caught at anything involving thievery, pranking, tricking, games, wenching, scouting, shadowing, hiding, etc... etc... He runs the Midnight Gambol of Erevan every month and invites all who happen upon it. He is wild, mischievous, independent, and utterly unpredictable, playing pranks on others for the sheer joy of it, and can be found deep in sylvan glades among the fun-loving subjects of the Seelie Court.

In the city of Silverymoon and Everlund his guild of elven rogues steal only from other thieves and give back to the proper owners half of what was initially stolen from them. They run out of town those thieves, and will even fight other rogues who try to set up shop in the city. So far they have never failed. He owns 3 taverns in Silverymoon. One is for elves only, another is for mixed crowds, and the last is a brothel which fronts as a winery. Curudin is known by Alustriel Silverhand and others of high rank in the city, but leave him alone for the most part for his efforts to run out other thieves entering the city. His tricks and pranks on the other hand push all who encounter him to the very edge of sanity and reason... even becoming violent! But not a single person can point a finger directly at him for anything linking him to these pranks and tricks.

He is also a well known adventurer and hero in the northlands, having spent most his life so far in absolute danger and peril. He is never one to be scared or frightened and usually laughs in the place of fear. His career has a long list of very worthy accomplishments, including stealing from Fzoul Chembryl, Semmemmon, The Vampire manshoon, Storm Silverhand, Mintipur Moonsilver, Alustriel Silverhand, Mirt the Moneylender, and countless other kings, warlords and the like. All of them have never been able to catch him as of yet.

He is most famous, or infamous, for his risky and daring thefts of other churches, temples and faiths, including those of Bane, Shar, Tyr, Helm, Talona, Auril, Mask, Torm, Grazz't, Beshabba, Tymora and others. Just recently (1374-75) he was hired by Khelben Arunsun and The Moonstars to go on a extremely difficult mission to sneak into Shade Enclave and steal a item of invaluable price and power from the city of Shade and its leaders. The mission was successful and the item was stolen and laid into the hands of Khelben, but not without its losses. Curudin, being a Divine deciple of Erevan Ilesere couldn't help but play a wicked deadly trick on Prince Clariburnus and Prince Yder before making his daring escape in which he lost his prized dice almost at the cost of his life!

And to add to all this... as well as he is known, he is also just as unknown it seems, and he prefers to keep it that way as long as possible. He is quick to laugh and has a very healthy sense of humor... sometimes light and frivolous, and other times dark and sardonic.

As of 1375 he has been seen moving between Silverymoon and Waterdeep, and has been spotted spending a great deal of time with Elaith "the serpent" Craulnober and Fox-at-Twilight as of late. Last night, Khelben Arunsun, having seen them at the Hidden Dagger tavern, quietly said to himself that Elaith would do well to frequently check his belongings, and to never underestimate the chaotic power of a wicked Prank or Trick; Especially one performed by Curudin Ahmaquissar!!

((Spell Plague and 100 years later. 1475 DR.))

Here's the guild members in short... "The Rogues of the laughing Twilight"

Curudin Ahmaquissar: Male Moon elf (stats above)

Laeirlefain Starleaf: Male Copper elf, Rogue 7/ Combat Trickster 3/ Tempest 4/ Divine Champion 4 of Erevan Ilesere.

Mitzlevexven Leafbower: Male Moon elf, Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Arcane Trickster 7.

Seareghade Shimmerstar: Male Moon elf, Illusionist 15/ Arcane Devotee 5 of Erevan Ilesere. (3ED version)

Terrindill Shaelarra: Male Gold elf, Rogue 5/ Shadowdancer 10/ Shadow Lord 3. (Shadow walker template)

Cepheus Nightsong: Male Star elf, Bard 20

Shen-Shen Mistriven: Female Gold elf, Spellthief 18

Quintillis The Wry: Male gold elf, Rogue 5/ Divine Seeker 5/ Temple raider 10. of Erevan Ilesere.

Nym Nightsong: Male Star elf, Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Shadow Adept 10. (Shade Template)

Saffrathila Winterbough: Female Copper elf, Rogue 5/ Cleric 5/ Mystic Wanderer 10 of Erevan Ilesere.

Zallathel Amarillis: Male Moon elf: Rogue 5/ Wizard 5/ Mage-Killer 10.

Sathalindle Selorn: Male Wild elf: Scout 5/ Cleric 5/ Luck Master 5/ of Erevan Ilesere.

Pheyloo Winterbough: Male Copper elf: Rogue 5/ Assassin 10/ Superior Knife Thrower 5.

All are followers of Erevan Ilesere and are very devoted to each other, mischief and the city of Silverymoon and Everlund. Their pranks range anywhere from making livestock talk, giving a bad stench to someone, turning somebody the colors of Erevan, freezing the bath water of a noble while they were bathing, animating objects to dance and sing, subtly cutting the belt of a warrior so it falls when they reach for their weapon, turning a persons wine or ale into milk or sand, Altering the appearance of someone to look like a Satyr, casting a spell to make a Bard sound like a bugbear, etc... etc.. But also, they are called upon to search and locate ancient elven artifacts and treasures long lost before falling into the wrong hands. And if powerful elven artifacts do fall into the wrong hands then they are also called upon to act as elven assassins to search, find and destroy these wizards and sorcerers who would weild the ancient elven magic. But keep in mind, they do so their own way, on their own terms, for their own reasons, which always lead back to Erevan Ilesere, and the ways of his dogma. As of early 1375 they are in the employment of Khelben Arunsun and working with the Moonstars towards major events soon to come in the year. They have found "The Shattering Swords of Coronal Ynloeth" along with his Bracer, as well as The ancient Dwarven weapon "Twinblades Alight".

((Continuing the story)) ((1475 DR.))

Over the hundred years of the change of Faerun the guild has grown very strong. Based in Everlund and prominent in the cause and effect of city life in and surrounding The Silver Marches. Making enemies of Shar and Zhents, Thay and The Empire of Shadow. Churches of Tyr and Helm put bounties on their heads. Assassins and killers are paid to land a blow against them all in the name of religion. Curudin is utterly devoted to the people but holds a hidden streak of mischief that causes more drama than needed. It seems Curudin thrives on this bout of Anarchic disposition and has been putting all of this in motion with the laughing voice of his god and fate. Now in charge of 19 specialized, talented rogues, Curudin guides them to their potential in the world of Erevan. Shadow is coming... And Shadow matches shadow in the light of the end. Erevan has given to Curudin a Shadow element in which the future is ablaze with hard times and sharp steel. Between Baaetezu, Tanar'ri, Fey'ri, Paladins of the lawful, monarchs of the forcefull, and all who can't laugh, the war zone hits home and the devoted of Erevan Ilesere laugh from the shadows like the Rogues they are.

Do something with this please!!! Erik Scott de Bie... do something with this! I'll give up all legal rights to have you spin them into a story for 7 pages out of 300. I beg you. You could play this in a book or a adventure rpg like a whirlwind.
