As said above...

I would imagine after a hundred years or so since Under Illefarn, Melandrach has gained levels and CR and all that jazz. What stats would you give him now? Wild Elf male Fey of The Laughing Hollow.

I believe ELB gave him stats in the teens?

Any idea?

What about AD&D Under Illerfarn? All info I have is from Rise of Tiamat. He is listed as a neutral male elf fighter/druid.

Boyd remade him in 3.5 Under Illefarn anew. I think he's a ranger/ wildrunner or something cool like that. A tenth level Wildrunner becomes Fey and changes your status.

I've found it!!

Possessions boots of the woodland king*, cloak of elvenkind,
dryadkissed chainmail*, gauntlets of ogre power, +1 swordbow*.


To me he seems more geared towards archery and melee. His Swordbow is a unique item that is powerful in any setting. Melandrach is a powerful, slippery opponent if you're evil. A wily bastard if he likes you even.

CR 14 is fairly powerful for a group of 5'th level PC's. I like him better as a Wildrunner as opposed to a Druid. Plus I like his Ranger class better than his old fighter class. Well done indeed.

I mean, after all, Melandrach is a very, very old Green elf fey male. Truly he is the King of The Laughing Hollow.

Hope that helps.

I appreciate the research. His son seems to be a good for nothing in Rise of Tiamat.

I cannot find any history on Melandrach before being the King of The Laughing Hollow. Like where did he come from before that? It was an ancient dwarven mine before the Fey zapped in to create a unique place in a desolate mine.

Did he come from the Misty Forest? Ardeep Forest? Maybe he was a child during The Crown Wars. Maybe he is descended from a line of powerful green elves (wild elves) and has staked a territory to call his own. The amount of Fey there is unique to say the least. A Unicorn?? wow. That's a large magical beast. Imagine that with class levels. lol.

Anybody have any more info on him?

I agree. We played Illefarn Anew and he was great

Seeker Archfey of Debauchery,

That is a legit set of stats on Melandrach. I was glad to see his stats not something way to high. I think the demographics of the Realms get blown out too easily.

Best regards,

Since we do not want ArchCEV back here again, under any name, I'm locking this and his other threads -- anyone that wants to communicate with him can find him some other way.
