Racial Abilities

Bow bonus - +1 bonus to attack rolls with long or short bows.
Infravision - 60' infravision range.
Resistance 90% - 90 percent resistant to sleep and charm-related spells.
Secret doors - Because of their acute senses, elves are quick to spot concealed doors and hidden entranceways. Merely passing within 10' of a concealed door allows an elf a one-in-six chance (a 1 on 1d6) to notice it. If actively searching, an elf's chances improve to a two-in-six chance (1 or 2 on 1d6) to find secret doors, and a three-in-six chance (1, 2, or 3 on 1d6) to notice a concealed door.
Stealth - When the elf is alone and is not wearing metal armor, he gains a bonus to surprise opponents. The opponent suffers a -4 penalty, a -2 if the elf has to open a door.
Sword bonus - +1 bonus to attack rolls when using a long or short sword.

Character Description and History

Damien Steele is a unusual sight to see: light brown skin, long, jet black hair that is blacker then the night itself, short and fairly skinny, but well built and strong. The only thing that sets him apart from all others is his unusual eyes. They're a deep lavander that seem to peirce one's soul. He is kind and gentle to some, and is a very good judge in personality.

But like all people, he has a darkside to him. Not many have seen him lose his temper, but those who have will tell you it's not pretty.


Damien's personality is unusual. He usually just minds his own business and keeps to himself. He's quiet always appears to be deep in thought about something. He's always willing to lend a hand to someone in need, which is unusual according to his alignment, Chaotic Neteral, and because he's a Rouge.

Usually, he keeps the persona of a loner about him, and dosen't really ask for help that often. For example, he once took on over two dozen Lizardmen by himself. He loves a good challenge, but he has a good head on his shoulders and knows when the odds are impossible.

Anyone that has seen Damien on the battlefeild, friend and foe alike, will tell you that he fights with passion, finess and speed more then power and brute force. He a dangerous person to behold...


Damien's life is hazy after him mothers death. He remembered leaving his elven home and traveling south to a city he now forgot about and stayed there amoung the thugs, thieves and murders. One day, he got sick of being amoung the low life and traveled outside of the city and into a forest. He was drunk the entire way, singing and generally making loud noises. When he awoke, he saw a man staning in front of him. It was Elthistan, God of the Forest. He looked at Damien with sorry eyes, then disappeared. Damien knew who he was, and changed his life to become a Ranger. Although he is a noble Ranger, Damien still possesses the skill of a Theif as well from all that time spent in the gutters. All around, he's kind of a noble thief, a trait unusual for his kind.


Magical Item Information:

Thunder Sheild:
Damien got this after beating 23 Lizardmen, including the Lizard King. He acually was just looking for a really powerful magical scroll when he found this, but it's been a huge help over his old wooden sheil, which almost broke in the battle with the Lizard King. This sheild gives him +4 defense and resistance to Thunder/Electric magic.

Zorchan Sword:
Damien got this after he beat Zorchan, the Elemental Lord of Fire. It looks like a normal Pirate's sword, but when you say the word "Dolak" the sword bursts into flames. Needless to say, this sword comes in handy.
