    New:
    Long-Knife: This weapon is often used by hunters and rangers for a variety of reasons and applications and so, acts much like a tool. It has a one-sided blade that curves slightly back and often a serrated edge on the other side. It's a bigger blade, much heavier than a dagger but not as long or as militaristic as a Shortsword. It can be thrown with accurately within 10 feet. This is a simple weapon.

    Well you did a lot of good work with the special Domains, it'd be a crime not to.


    Also, ideas for more NPCs?

    Creation Method

  • Free Regional feat at 1st level (Dauntless)


  • Additional notes:
  • Uses "Orcish Weapon*. These are specific weapons created by Orcs and require an exotic weapon proficiency feat to use. Orcs treat them as martial weapons. More information found HERE

  • The +1 spiked pauldron is mechanically a buckler, but I thought the re-flavoring was much more fitting and cool.

  • Tiger Claw bracers can be found in the magical item section of the Tome of Battle. It's how he's able to use Wolf Fang Strike 1/encounter.

  • Darkberries were something I read that were similar to my Shadow-Pellets further down thread but I can't remember the source of the information. Heh, I don't even really know what they do.

    Arcane Attunement (Sp): Aelrovan can use the spell-like powers dancing lights, detect magic, flare, ghost sound, and read magic a combined total of times per day equal to 3 + his Int. modifier.

    Arcane Channeling (Su): Aelrovan can cast any touch spell he knows as part of a full-attack action and deliver the spell through his weapon with a melee attack, the spell affecting each target he hits in melee combat that round. Casting a spell in this manner does not provoke attacks of opportunity. The spell must have a casting time of 1 standard action or less.

    Arcane Strike (Complete Warrior): When Aelrovan activates this feat (a free action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity), he can channel arcane energy into a melee weapon or his unarmed strike. He must sacrifice one of his spells for the day (of 1st level or higher) to do this, but he gains a bonus on all his attack rolls for 1 round equal to the level of the spell sacrificed, as well as extra damage equal to 1d4 points of the level of the spell sacrificed. The bonus added to his attack rolls from this feat cannot be greater than Aelrovan's base attack bonus.

    Dimensional Jaunt (Complete Mage): As long as Aelrovan has a teleportation spell of 4th level or higher available to cast, he can spend a standard action to teleport himself and carried objects up to his heavy load a distance of 5 feet per level of the highest level teleportation spell he has available to cast. He can teleport only to a location he can see and he can't bring along any other creature. He also gains a +1 bonus to caster level checks for teleportation spells.

    Quick Cast: Aelrovan can cast three spells each day as a swift action, so long as the casting time of the spell is 1 standard action or less.

    Spell Power: If Aelrovan has injured an opponent with a melee attack, he gains a +3 bonus on his caster level check to overcome spell resistance for the remainder of the encounter.

    Hook: "With blade and spell, you will fall this day!"

    Aelrovan Steeleaf (Ale-ROW-vin STEEL-leaf) is a mercenary for higher found along the Western Heartlands and the Sword Coast. Originally of Evereska, he traveled exclusively with his older brother, a renowned bladesinger named Ny'thandael (NIGH-than-dale) but a falling out has occurred between the two brothers and he takes work wherever he can find it.

    Aelrovan had the following ability scores before racial adjustments, Hit Dice ability score increases, and equipment bonuses: Str 13, Dex 14, Con 12, Int 15, Wis 8, Cha 10 (25 point-buy).


    History
    Aelrovan grew up among the tall trees of the city of Evereska, along with this older brother, mother, and father. The Steeleafs have a long and proud history of defenders of the elven realms, dating as far back as the founding of Cormanthyr and continuing through the fall of Myth Drannor and his family's relocation to Evereska. This history is grounded in the practice of both sword and magic; a style called Bladesinging that the elves often favor. Aelrovan's brother was a natural and took to the style with ease and grace, making their parents proud. Aelrovan, on the other hand, struggled with the practices and would often let his emotion and frustration get the better of him, throwing him out of rhythm and balance when he and his brother sparred. Yet his brother would look after him, mentor him when he didn't meet father's expectations, and helped him gain some bearing.

    Aelrovan knew deep down he would never catch up to his brother in terms of skill with the sword and spell in equal measure. Aelrovan just didn't physically have the lithe body of a graceful bladesinger. While wallowing in the mire of that which was of no fault of his own, an older looking elf approached Aelrovan one day in the fall of 1281 DR. The older elf, well over four centuries, sat and listened to the young elf's anger and frustration, the fear of letting his father and his whole family down. The older elf, named Korath'le, then told Aelrovan about another path; a path that complemented the Bladesinger in battle, that used their lower center of gravity and armor to devastating effect but still held to magic as any Bladsinger might.

    Aelrovan was skeptical at first, assuming Korath'le was referring to the style humans adapted to mimic, and badly, a bladesinger, called eldritch knights. These warriors attempt to fight in armor while casting spells, but it requires a significant investment in mithral and magical enchantments while a true Bladesinger is just as comfortable in their loose clothes as they are in armor. Yet, as Korath'le spoke of this ancient elven tradition, about being a blur on the battlefield, attacking with striking speed and position, the more Aelrovan believed this tradition was unique unto itself. Korath'le told Aelrovan that he would teach him this technique under the condition that he would only practice it under dire circumstances and only around people he trusted. Eagerly, Aelrovan accepted.

    It wasn't long before Aelrovan adopted these unusual techniques and was able to apply his considerable qualities and intelligence into a sort of harmonic blend. The spells he learned were much like that of any Wizard, but with a quick twist of the spell, allowing a faster casting for a shorter duration. His advancement was spurred on quickly by the deft teaching of Korath'le, pushing him to new heights and in the same days, he would train under his father and brother in their own traditions. Aelrovan had to admit to himself, he felt far greater pride when the old elf Korath'le would praise him than he ever felt from the few times he received praise from his father. His training was going well until the day he had to make a decisive choice.

    A warrior such as Aelrovan, one who can cast spells and fight with a blade, the right spell for the job is almost a necessity. Yet for his family, the teaching of Bladesinging from the Steeleafs requires one caveat, no Necromancy. The concept of playing with life-forces, the stain using such magicks leaves on your soul is thought to be too terrible to imagine. Steeleaf warriors are forbidden to wield to learn such spells. So it was a decision Aelrovan was put to when he was taught a number of such spells from Korath'le. He learned to syphon life from an enemy when he struck them with his blade, to drain their strength, and to use his own life-force to infuse his weapon with tremendous, and slightly horrifying, effects. At first, Aelrovan recoiled at the thought. The betrayal to his family would be final and he'd never be accepted. But the more Korath'le urged him to fight with all of his might, Aelrovan realized that his acceptance was moot regardless. With strong willpower and resolve, Aelrovan went down that path and never looked back.

    As the decades past, Aelrovan became an exemplary warrior among Evereska's troops. His combat style, favoring of heavier armor but still retaining his spellcasting intrigued quite a number of older elven warriors. It was a style unlike much of what they've seen. Then one day, in the year 1345 DR, Aelrovan and his brother Ny'thandael got into an extremely heated sparring match. Pushed by their father to continue the match, despite both near exhaustion, the two unleashed all they had in terms of steel and spell alike. Ny'thandaels cunning tactics and quick magics thwarted Aelrovans attacks, which caused him the much anticipated frustration Ny'thandael sought. In the final moments Ny'thandael used that frustration to lay Aelrovan low with a strike to the back. Hearing his father's applause at his failure sent Aelrovan over the edge. Turning towards his unsuspecting brother, Aelrovan used his magic to teleport to just behind Ny'thandael, unleashing a necromantic spell into his weapon and sapping a significant portion of Ny'thandael's life into him. The horrified expressions on both his brother and father's face, Aelrovan knew his secret was out. The match was ended and Aelrovan confined to his room to await punishment.

    The next week was torture for Aelrovan. All he ever wanted was to please his family and defend his home from threats. During his isolation, he was visited by Ny'thandael and Aelrovan explained everything to him. He bore all that he was, all the training he underwent, and all the pressure he felt from their father. Ny'thandael understood it all and in the end, forgave him. While his brother's forgiveness was a blessing, Aelrovan still feared what the council would say. By the end of the week, the decision was made.

    Aelrovan was put before the council of Evereska. They acknowledge that his prowess certainly helped in defense of their city and he had, up to then, only shown the greatest reverence to the city's elders and that of the council. Still, his temper and horrific attack; and with necromancy; needed to be addressed. He was given the ultimatum that he would be spared and allowed to return to his duties so long as divulge who his mentor was, who was it that taught him the tradition of Nael'kerym. Aelrovan refused. Yet before judgment could be passed, old Korath'le stepped forward, proclaiming that he was his mentor and that the council's fears of a great and strong tradition such as Nael'kerym should be cherished and employed as it once was. The council thought differently and he was banished from Evereska.

    Aelrovan, angered by what he considered blatant prejudice, stated that he would leave as well. He also told the council, along with his parents, that he will be known only as Am'aul keNevae or Ira'kerym. In the common tongue they mean "Strider in darkness" and "Duskblade" respectively.

    Both Korath'le and Aelrovan made their way towards the Sword Coast, to ply their trade for coin and survival. They were shortly joined by none other than Ny'thandael, seeking adventure and not wanting his brother to be alone in the wilderness, and the three adventured for some time along the Sword Coast.

Creatures within the effected area gain a +1 bonus on Hide checks for each 25% decrease in light. The shade cannot use this ability in bright light.
    Evasion (Ex): If the shade is exposed to any effect that normally allows her to attempt a Reflex saving throw for half damage, she takes no damage with a successful saving throw.
    Invisibility (Sp): The shade can use this spell-like ability once per minute as a 20th level sorcerer. She cannot use this spell-like ability in bright light.
    Shadesight (Su): The shade has darkvision out to 60 feet. She can see normally through any darkness effects, but not thorough fog, invisibility, obscurement, and so forth. She cannot use this ability when in bright light.
    Shadow Double (Su): Once per day, the shade can use a standard action to create a double of herself woven from shadowstuff. The double has the ability scores, base AC, hit points, saves, and attack bonuses of the shade, but no equipment. The double can attack her enemies if given a weapon to do so. Furthermore, it can function as the target of a project image spell, duplicating the shade’s actions and functioning as the originator of her spells when it is within her direct line of sight. Mentally commanding the double is a free action. This duration lasts 21 rounds even if the shade dies.
    Shadow Defense (Ex): The shade gains a +3 profane bonus to saves against enchantments, illusion, and necromancy spells, as well as spells with the darkness descriptor.
    Shadow Image (Sp): Three times per day, the shade can use this ability (similar to the mirror image spell) as a 20th level sorcerer. The ability creates 1d4+5 figments. She cannot use this ability when in bright light.
    Shadow Stride (Su): The shade can vanish from her current location and reappear in any shadowy area within 100 feet, as often as once every 2 rounds. Using this ability is a move action, so the shade can use another ability, cast a spell, or attack in the same round. She cannot use this ability when in bright light.
    Shadow Travel (Sp): Once per day, the shade can use either greater teleport to reach a shadowy locale on the same world as the shade or plane shift to access the Plane of Shadow. The shade must be in shadows to use this ability.
    Shadow Walk (Sp): Shadow walk 1/day, as the spell (caster level 10th).
    Shield of Shadow (Ex): As a standard action, the shade can surround herself with a globe of purple-black force, which functions like a shield spell, granting her a +4 shield bonus to AC and absorbing magic missiles. In addition, it provides concealment (20% chance miss) against melee and ranged attacks, grants her spell resistance 22, and can be used up to 20 rounds per day. This duration need not be consecutive and disarming the shield is a standard action.
    Cleric Spells Prepared (caster level 20th; caster level 19th for evocation and transmutation spells): 0—detect magic, detect poison, inflict minor wounds (DC 18), no light, mending, read magic; 1st—bane (DC 20), cure light wounds, detect good, divine favor, doom (DC 20), inflict light wounds (DC 20), obscuring mist, sign; 2nd—augury, blindness/deafness (DC 21), bull’s strength, desecrate•, find traps, inflict moderate wounds (x2; DC 21), undetectable alignment; 3rd—contagion• (DC 23), cure serious wounds (x2), dispel magic, magic circle against good•, prayer, remove blindness/deafness, searing light; 4th—corrupt bestow curse• (DC 23), dimensional anchor, dismissal, divine power, freedom of movement, inflict critical wounds (DC 22), recitation, unholy blight• (DC 24); 5th—break enchantment, darkbolt (DC 23), corrupt poison• (DC 23), righteous might, righteous wrath of the faithful, unhallow (DC 25); 6th—corrupt slay living• (DC 25), blade barrier, harm (DC 25), heal, prying eyes, wind walk; 7th—blasphemy• (DC 26), cure serious wounds [mass], heightened contagion• (DC 27), inflict serious wounds [mass] (DC 26), restoration [greater], resurrection; 8th—antimagic field, corrupted heightened harm• (DC 27), fire storm (DC 26), inflict critical wounds [mass] (DC 27), power word blind, spell immunity [greater]; 9th—energy drain (DC 28), gate, implosion (DC 27), miracle, power word kill.
    :Domain Spell. Domains: Darkness (gain Blind Fight as bonus feat), Evil (cast evil spells [•] at +1 caster level).

    Well, that was a lot of NPCs in the last few days.

    So......critiques, questions, requests?

    I realized that I've very little in the way of 4th Edition NPCs and such, so I'm going to be focusing more on them in the next few weeks to build up that section (barring requests and such).

    I am intrigued by your E6 builds, Diffan. If I weren't involved in so many other projects I would give that serious consideration.

    I'm glad you enjoy them ! Really, any character I've created that's CR 6 and below is perfectly viable for an E6 game, with exception to any creature using an item that's Caster Level 7th or higher. And even that, you can say that it's a special artifact who's crafting is lost to the ages.

    I really want to re-stat Elminster (E6 style). But it would definitly fall into the areas of un-touchable. He'd also have to break the mold (as it were) with Epic/PrC feats being what they are. And with the Chosen template added from the FRCS, we're looking at a CR between near 16-17, which is practially God-like in an E6 character (hmm....maybe that fits him?).

    I realized that this class (the Hexblade) really hasn't been getting enough love recently, and I figured that since it's already on my HD I'd post him with some extra cool stuff (new feat and items).


    "THE PHANTOM"; CR 3
    Male human hexblade 3
    CN Medium humanoid (human)
    Init +2; Senses Listen +0, Spot +0
    Languages Common, Undercommon
    ===============================================================================
    AC 20, touch 13, flat-footed 18
    (+6 armor, +2 Dex, +1 shield, +1 deflection)
    hp 26 (3 HD)
    Resist mettle
    Fort +5, Ref +3, Will +3 (+3 to saves against spells and spell-like effects)
    ===============================================================================
    Speed 30 ft. (6 squares)
    Melee mwk greatsword +6 (2d6+3/19-20)
    Ranged mwk heavy crossbow +6 (1d10 plus 1 ongoing/19-20, plus 1d6 acid)
    Base Atk +3; Grp +5
    Atk Options Improved Trip, Intimidating Strike, hexblade’s curse 4/day (DC 14, +1d6)
    Combat Gear 5 flash discs (Fort DC 15 or blinded 1 round/ dazzled 1 round +1d6 force damage), 2 vials of medium scorpion poison, 2 shadow-vault pellets
    ===============================================================================
    Abilities Str 14, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 17
    Feats Combat Expertise, Improved Trip, Intimidating Strike, Stinging Hex
    Skills Bluff +6, Concentration +6, Diplomacy +3, Intimidate +9, Knowledge (arcane) +3, Spellcraft +4, Tumble +4, Use Magic Device +5
    Flaw Harbinger of Ill Omen
    Possessions combat gear plus masterwork greatsword, +1 mithral breastplate, masterwork buckler, ring of protection +1, masterwork heavy crossbow with 20 bolts, 4 acid bolts, and 3 thresher bolts, 33 gp, 10 sp.

    [Creation Method]
  • Stats generated by 4d6 dropping lowest die x 7

  • Flaw: Harbinger of Ill Omen found HERE

  • New Feat: Stinging Hex. Basically a when a creature is subject to one of your hexes, any weapon-based attack against that target receives additional damage in the form of 1d6. This damage is added after the fact, like all extra damage die. So it's not subject to critial hits. It does, however, stack with precision-based damage so long as those requiremnts are also kept (such as attacking a flat-footed opponent with Sneak Attack).


  • New Equipment
    Flash Disc: Crafted from items used to make Flash Pellets, they're compacted into a clay-like disc and have oil of impact injected into the mixture. The weight and shape of the disc allows it to be thrown up to 20 ft. Upon impact, a flash and concussive force insues adding both the combined aspects of a Flash Pellet (Complete Adventurer, p. 118) and the force damage of an Oil of Impact. A successful Fortitude save 15 negates the Dazed and Dazzled conditions of the flash pellet but the oil of impact damage still occurs (no save).
    Cost: 150 per flash disc; Craft (Alchemy): DC 25

    Shadow-Pellets: These grape-sized berries come directly from the Shadowfell (Plane of Shadow). Despite it's crude plane and growth on poisoned thorn bushes, they're quite tasty and have semi-curitave properties. When ingested, they grant the user 1d4 temporary hit points. These hit points do not go away like normal temporary hit points do and after 1 hour the effects ware off, dropping the individual that many HPs. There are cautions, however. The berries contain a small amount of toxin from it's root-plant and imbibing more than a bushel (or 5 berries) within 24 hours results in being poisoned (no save). The poison effects the person's senses, rendering temporary vision loss and numbness to the extemities (blindness and a -4 penalty to Dexterity for 2d4 hours). Imbibing more than double the poisoned dose (a whole branch or 10 berries) results in instant permanent blindess, permanent ability drain (-4 Dexterity) and your base speed drops 20 feet.

    The second ability of these berries is when thrown with force at a user's feet, the essence of shadow is released, allows the user a quick temporary "Jump" to another shadow with 10 feet. Multiple berries thrown at once do not increase the user's distance.
    Cost: 800 gp for a bushel (about 5) or 200 a pellet.

    Arrow (Bolt), Thresher: These masterwork arrows have weighted tips and are shaped with jagged points or have angular protrusions to rip and shred a target's vitals. These arrows deal 1 point of bleed* damage (see below for details). If the attack dealt precision based damage (from Sneak attack or Skirmish ability for example) the bleed damage gains an extra 1 point per d6 of damage delt. Due to it's strange tip design and added weight, thresher arrows decrease the bow's range by half.
    Cost: 200 gp; Craft (bowmaking): DC 30

    *Bleed damage: A creature that is taking bleed damage takes the listed amount of damage at the beginning of its turn. Bleeding can be stopped by a DC 15 Heal check or through the application of any spell that cures hit point damage. Bleed effects do not stack with each other unless they deal different kinds of damage. When two or more bleed effects deal the same kind of damage, take the worse effect.

    Here's an interesting concept, a Half-Orc paaldin of Amaunator.

    Ergoth was apart of an Orc tribe (the Iron Wolf tribe, to be precise) that was raided and destoryed by Frost Giants. Wandering the northen Thar they came across a squad of holy men, Amaunatori clerics, and were helped to a neary by sanctuary to be healed. A few of them found comfort and a new home here, helping the clergy of Amaunator in whatever daily tasks needed done. The rest, however, sought revenge for their tribes destruction and went off in pursuit of the Frost Giants. Ergoth, conflicted with the decision to stay 'true' to his tribe and follow them on their blood-oath or remain with the clergy and pursue what might be his true calling, sat and prayed very hard to the Lord of the Dawn. What he received was a vision of death, cold, and pain. He saw a glimpse of what was in store for those who went up against the Frost Giants, and it was one of a bitter end. The next day he tried to warn his people that vengeance wasn't the answer, but they didn't listen and left. Suffice to say, they were never seen again. On that day Ergoth took the pledge to Amaunator to serve him with honor, with valor, and with stoicism. That day, Ergoth began his path to become a paladin.

    -I have a bunch of NPCs that were created for online projects that were statted out (3e). I can't say how accurate they are, in terms of getting all the rules of character creation correct (I've never used the rules as in in my own games), but if you want to correct them/modify them and include them after giving them the rules look-over, you can "have" them.

    Much appreciated LK! Really, it's cool if you want to just cut-paste them here as is. If anything is glaringly out-placed or off stat-wise, I'll let ya know. BThe idea behind the thread is to throw out a bunch of characters DMs can use as a quick fill, a henchman, a NPC character that interacts with PCs, or even a nemesis for the PCs that lasts whole character-careers. I'd pretty much expect these guys to either die in some horrible way or be changed compeletly or even if people just come by to use the names of characters, lol.

    So don't feel that you have to conform to some ruleset and if you even want to post 2E/AD&D characters that's cool too. I'd like to keep it within D&D/Pathfinder for the most, however.

    Thanks crazedventurers, I appreciate the kind words! For the moment I've just been throwing NPCs out there that I can easily cut'n'paste from my computer (except the E6 ones, but they're easy). Is there any specific class people want to see a little more of (there's dozens I haven't even touched) or a specific style (such as a build or combination) for a cool character concept?

    I would like to see a well rounded NPC nemesis that the players go against over several levels, a mastermind that is clever and stays in the background.

    Cheers

    It's funny but when you mentioned this I instantly though "Venger" from the old 80's Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, but that got me thinking. To craft something like this, I'd need just a tad bit information. For one, what level range you looking for? If it's between 1st through 8th, an NPC of about 6th or 7th level is nice. HPs, Saves, and Abilities aren't game breaking and the antagonist might think the PCs "less" than him/her at the earlies levels.

    If your looking at the 9th through 14th level then, probably something in the CR 12th range that could even be leveled as the PCs advance as well.

    Also, what edition? Some prefer 3.0, others v3.5, and still others like Pathfinder. Dare I suggest 4th Edition ?
