Character Description and History

Special Powers:
Nithanul is ummune to normal weapons and requires a +1 or better weapon to hit, by him touching or being touched causes 1d10 damage to whatever is touching him (aura of cold) and a save vs paralyse or be immobile until dispelled. Immune to charm, sleep, enfeeblement, polymorph, cold, electricity, insanity, fear, command, friends, hypontism, forget, hold person, ray of enfeeblement, scare, cause fear, charm monster, confusion, emotion, fumble, suggestion, chaos, feeblemind, hold monster, magic jar, quest, and death spells. Regeneration of 4HP per round.

He gains a +4 to hit aside from strength, weapon, and proficency bonuses. AC = -3 Magic Resistance of 25% any successful unarmed attack made by him causes a deadly mummy rot disease to take affect and the victim will die in 1d3 days if not cured (see mummy rot).  He can also cause fear with in any creature within 10' of him who he directly looks into his eyes (save vs fear with a -4 penalty or run away in terror).

He can also specialize in any weapon of his choosing and he can wear any armor and cast wizard spells (spells and magic supplement) but cannot cast wizard spells with a sword. He also takes 1/2 damage from any weapon that could hurt him (this applies to weapons only).

After killing millions in his conquest to take over Faerun, Nithanul was forced to fight several avatars, demi-gods, lesser gods, greater gods, and powerful heroes of the Realms in order to complete his goal of ruling all of the Forgotten Realms. After Destroying all of his enemies (as listed above) the powerful god known as Ao sent Nithanul to the Domains of Dread (better known as the Ravenloft campaign setting). It was in Ravenloft where Nithanul gained far more power than he ever could in Faerun. It was here, where he made a special elixir that would turn him into a very powerful being known as a lich.  But this elixir he made was not the normal potion or formula used to turn one into a lich (see Monstrous Manual I, II, or Monstuous Compendium for more info) he tweeked it. He added some rather unique components and spells in order to not just turn him into a lich but a combination Lich \ Death Knight \ Vampire \ Mummy \ Abashi. With some divine help (the DM and his deity) he was turned into a unique form of lich (combination lich \ greater mummy) with only powers and limitations of both however. He became a unique form of undead. With his new found abilities it did not take him long to attract the attention of the dark powers (see Domains of Dread source book for more info). The dark powers granted him even more abilities but twisted his mind into turning against all of creation. After escaping Ravenloft (by means of a wierd machine created by some hag) he returned to Faerun this time not in hopes of conquering it but this time bent on its total destruction. Nithanul created a very powerful form of Tarrasque using remains of one he had slain. This new Tarrasque he called the Paragon Tarrasque which was more powerful than he was!

The Paragon Tarrasque ended up Destroying Faerun (for it was near impossible for any mortal to kill and impossible to be killed by any god). Because of Nithanul's evil ways, he was transported back to Ravenloft and was given his own little pocket domain that resembled Faerun in every aspect but the irony the dark powers bestowed upon him (or curse as other player's and DM's call it) was that no matter how powerful he was he could never quite rule or destroy Faerun thus putting him in his own private Hell.... For Now!
