wow, no responses. Well looking at the Index, I'm noticing a low volume of Druid characters. So here's one with an interesting backround. Illuskan fighter born in the city of Luskan, this ruffian was thrown out on his arse and forced to live off the land. Quickly he grew accustomed to his environments and this tempered his raging spirit. He found peace and harmony within the Sword Coastal forests and became initiated in the religion of Silvanus.

And another character with an interesting backround. Radivaar was born and raised in Shade Enclave (in the plane of Shadow). Grew up in a household with a Sharan cleric for a father and a shadow adept/archmage for a mother, people though Radivaar was bound for greatness. This was true until he came upon a "Fight Club-esque" school for those training in the Sublime Way.

He fell into a crowed of people who use their superior martial skills while blending shadow, light, and the elements into perfect harmony. Of course this sort of discipline was outlawed by the church of Shar and viewed with distrust by the Princes of Shade. Still, the small Do-Jo flourished as the slaves of the city found new strength within themselv, espically the Krinth. Radivaar learned quickly and was a rising star in his class. His knowledge of shadows and darkness from his parents helped pave the way to his extensive capabiliies regarding the Shadow Hand discipline. Soon he paralled his master and became what is known as the Master of the Nine, meaning master of all nine disciplines.

Soon after reaching such paragon heights, the Arch-wizards returned to Faerûn with Shade Enclave's permament shift back to Toril. Radivaar took this opportunity to leave the oppressing enclave forever. In doing so, he left his country under bad circumstances as his parents found out about his almost supernatural abilities. Now he's a wanted fugitive from that nation who'd love to get him back and interrogate him on the secret Do-Jo that lies somewhere in the Enclave.

Maybe a kommando member? Something like US Army Ranger or Green Beret, but Realms-ish. CR 12-14. Pathfinder and no full casters (including Bard).

I can do that, say drow ranger 2/rogue 7/tempest 4? The Tempest PrC is from Complete Adventurer but a Pathfinder conversion is pretty simple.

Looks good, but it don't have to be a drow. And what good is the Tempest for a kommando? He has to be decent in battle, but more important is that he has the right skills and abilitied.

Ok, if not a Drow then which race would you like? Human seems to be a good choice for a multitude of reasons as are Elves, espically for the sort of Spec. Ops character.

I chose the Tempest because it's excellent in two-weapon fighting techniques, something I think a Commando would be good with. I chose the Ranger for terrain knowledge, stealth skills, and nature abilities. I chose to mutliclass to Rogue for sneak attack damage, rogue talents, and to further expand on Stealth and Traps.

Description: Luthan grew up in a small village deep in Nar called Sarrowatch. This tiny village avoided magic and feared it terribly. Those who've been known to wielding magic are asked to leave town. Such magic users become hermits in the near by woodlands and mountains. This is where Luthan first came across magic.

He and his friends knew about an old hermit, living in the woods, which supposedly wielded awesome power. They were all warned to say far away from him, but like most children, they rarely listened. One evening Luthan and his friends ventured close to where the old hermit dwelled, hoping to catch a glimpse of his arcane might. And like most children, ran at the first sign of the old man's presence. Still Luthan remained, determined to see magic done. What Luthan saw that night wasn't powerful, dreadful, or even scary. It was a few items moving about by themselves, a light with no heat source, and and an old man talking to an owl. With a disappointed sigh, Luthan started his journy home.

Luthan didn't get far as a creature from the dark woods released a terrifying shreak. With speed born of pure fear, Luthan ran down the path towards the town. He heard brush breaking and something running behind him with inhuman speed. Sparing a glance back, Luthan saw a monster coming at him from his most dreaded nightmares. It was the size of a bear with a beak of an giant bird, something he heard the men folk in town call an Owlbear. They were ferocious beasts and loved the taste of humans. With Luthan distracted, he never saw the roots along the path and promply tripped, skidding to his hands and knees. He turned as the owlbear came upon him, rearing on it's hind legs like a giant conquering his opponent.

The blood was pumping in Luthan's ears deafened him to the sounds of arcane muttering behind the giant beast. Suddenly Luthan was blinded by a steak of light as it arched through the Owlbear's chest. The smell of ozone and burnt, dirty hair reached his nostrils and he had briefly wonderd if the sky had opened above him, delivering a powerful bolt of lightning. The Owlbear swayed from side to side then fell with a great weight that shook the ground, like a darkwood tree falling next to Luthan's head. Spots of light swam in his eyes and it took a few moments to realize what occured. Sitting on a dead tree stump was the old hermit, his beard wild and shaggy and holding what appeard to be some sort of transparent rod.

A smile broke his stern, bearded visage and he said "Looks like owlbear for dinner! You run along home now, but don't fear me child. When you regain your wits, come see me and I'll teach you how to conquor the world." The old man walked over to the Owlbear and muttered some arcane phrase that Luthan could've never known and in a flash, both beast and wizard were gone.

Luthan did return and went on to learn much of what the wizard would teach him. Yet as he grew to man hood, the townsfolk started to suspect something odd about Luthan. When it was learned that he had been meeting the old wizard, he too was banished from his town. Luthan decided to live with the old hermit but upon going to his cottage, the hermit too was gone. With no one to learn from, Luthan left his small vale and journeyed into the wider world to learn more magic.

Diffan - do you just do NPCs or do you do monsters, too?

I could use Marcus, Red Wizard of Thay in the CR 14 range that can (for a time) handle combatting 5-6 PCs. He should have craft woundrous item, at least, and have some nod to a great amount of experience with portals, and magic items. If you see my most recent thread in this folder, you'll get more details if you need him. He should also not be particularly wise. He's completely missed the fact that the devils he's allied himself with are demons in disguise.

3.5/Pathfinder with as much of a Realms taste, as possible.

Well, Monsters and NPCs go hand-in-hand when using v3.5/Pathfinder. The few changes are that Monsters gain access to Monster Feats and often their wealth-by-level is much lower than that of a PC. 4E, OTOH, has distinct differences between Monsters and PCs.

As for Marcus, is this the same Red Wizard Marcus that attacked Phlan in the Pools of Darkness novel or just a coincidence? Just curious. Yea, I could stat-up an Evil Red Wizard for you. But there are differences between v3.5 and Pathfinder. Do you want mainly Pathfinder mechanics with some sprinkling of v3.5? Also, Red Wizards require specialization in a school of magic, so which school would you like Marcus to specialize in?

Yep, that's the guy. It's for my homage to pools of darkness adventure. I took the game and the novel and sort of mashed them together, then threw in some stargate sg1.

Gothmenes (villain from the game) is actually masquerading as Tanetal. Some basics have been adjusted for the PCs interactions with Phlan in Ruins of Adventure (aka Pool of Radiance). And the campaign has basically involved them using pools of darkness to move from town to town, as opposed to following Ren's track of looking for the lost cities.

Basically, I use Pathfinder as my rule-set, filling in with FR where needed, and then 3.5 if all else fails. It's up to you whether or not you use the Red Wizard PrC, though I'm sure it's more useful to others if you do, I guess. I'm leaning towards

Ok, well from what I remember of the novel, I'm under the impression that Marcus was more of a blasting mage, meaning a focus in Evocation. So I'll use that and the Red Wizard prestige class. I'll have to Pathfinder-ize the PrC, but that shouldn't be too hard at all.

Guess I didn't finish my sentence, but yeah - if you've read the novel (I've only skimmed and scanned) then you'll know him best! :)

Thanks for understanding. Things are fine, my wife and I are looking for a house to buy and the process is rough. My off days are all about touring houses, lol. I should have Marcus up tomorrow.
