So Erevis Cale, Rivalen Tanthul and Drasek Riven each took a shard of power from the god Mask to defeat Volumvax/ Kessen Rel, correct? You must have some mighty stats to take on a demi-god. What about Magadon? A Psychic Psionic so powerful that he can move a Shadovar Enclave by himself against the Mythallar's will?

So tell me if I'm close...

Rivalen Tanthul: CR 37; Shade Shadovar Wizard 11/ Shadow Adept 7/ Cleric 15 of Shar.

Erevis Cale: CR 29; Shade human Rogue 5/ Assassin 5/ Cleric 15 of Mask.

Drasek Riven: CR 25; Fighter 10/ Assassin 10/ Divine Champion 5 of Mask.

I'm not good at stats for Psionics like Magadon.



Anyone want to contribute?

I think it's always challenging and not altogether productive to give fiction antagonists game stats.

LOL. I'm the guy that started a thread called 3.5 - changing stat blocks for narrative accuracy.

http://forum.candlekeep.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=21476

For what its worth, I suggested this change to Rivalens classes.

Wizard 5, Cleric 5, Shadow Adept 10 (5 levels into wizard spell progression, 5 levels into cleric spell progression split), Mystic Theurge 10, Archmage 3

Agreed. Part of the problem is that the fictional characters are often given abilities, tools, and options that the plot and their backstory require. If you're telling a story, the plot is what matters -- not some rulebook that's going to be invalidated in a few years.

I'm willing to bet that the majority of the published characters of the Realms began as a concept specifically for their first fictional appearance, and not as a playable character.

Heh, I'd forgotten about that.

I'm going to agree that you can't always apply game stats to fictional characters (even if they're written in a game setting).

Kesson had official stats in a splatbook. IIRC he was a low epic with divine rank 0

Edit: Faiths&Pantheons, page 173.

half-fiend shade, Clr7/Sha8/Dis5 of Shar, DvR 0
