Edit: I didn't see it in her backstory, but would you say Tess is Chondathan or Illuskan being that she grew up in Waterdeep and has similar characteristics? Also great backstory, I thoroughly enjoyed the read.



Yes, I'd intended for her to be a Chondathan Waterdhavian. The personality came in when a friend asked "What if the EMH from Star Trek was a cleric in D&D?"



Haha, good ol' Joe.

I did a conversion of a 3.0 character, Sahbuti Shandardanda, an evil monk of Shar. I assumed that he has some essence of shade or shadow within him that allowed him to live long past most human mortality (similar to Antreri). So here's his 4e write-up. I'm not opposed to converting him to 5th Edition either if someone wants me to.

Sahbuti Shandardanda; Level 15 Elite Lurker
Medium shadow humanoid, human XP 2,400
============================================================================
HP 226; Bloodied 113

TRAITS
Combat Advantage
Sahbuti deals 2d6 extra damage to any creature granting combat advantage to him.
Shadow Surge • Healing
Sahbuti regains 20 hit points at the end of his turn if he has remained invisible since the start of his turn.
Flurry of Blows
When Sahbuti hits with either a bastard sword or unarmed strike attack, the target and one adjacent creature takes 5 damage and is slid 1 square adjacent to Sahbuti or 1 square in any direction if the target wasn't targeted by the triggering attack.
============================================================================
STANDARD ACTIONS
(m) Stunning Fist (martial) • Encounter
Attack: +20 vs. AC
Hit: 6d8 + 13 damage and the target is dazed and immobilized (save ends).

(M) Unarmed StrikeAt-Will
Attack: +19 vs. AC
Hit: 4d8 + 5 damage.

Double Attack (weapon, shadow, cold) • At-Will

Hit: 2d10 + 6 cold damage.
============================================================================
MOVE ACTIONS

Here's another character I converted to 4e from 3rd edition. Initially this guy was given stats on page 5 (fighte 1/ evoker 6/ spellsword 4) but was then later changed to Evoker 5/ eldritch knight 3/ abjurant champion 5) on a later computer. I really wanted to see how good I could take a pretty interesting character (gish in this case) and turn it into a 4E version that was still pretty true to the original.

In all honestly, I think it turned out pretty awesome! He still retains his whole "evoker-burning" side with the feats chosen and spells like fireball, combust, wall of fire, fire burst but also holds that innate ability to just go to town swinging his signature weapon Static Steel (a +2 shocking greatsword) to a +4 lightning greatsword in 4e. With the change from Spellsword to Abjurant Champion, I felt multiclassing to Swordmage and getting a bunch of powers that help him teleport to people's aid was a pretty good call.

The only thing I left out, which I'll probably add later, is the number of rituals he has known in his book. When I get more time I'll list them by level.

BERGTHOR HALLSTEIN; LEVEL 20 WIZARD
Medium humanoid, human (Illuskan)

So I had created this character for one of our adventures after going on a Destiny 2 bender, falling in love with the Titan class and the Sun Seeker specifically. In the game, basically you turn into a flaming avatar of destruction whilst throwing flaming hammers and floating above your enemies. Maveith, a shadow-stricken Goliath child of the evil fey, he grew up fighting his destiny (hehe) and attempts to combat the darkness within himself by fighting for his friends and preserving nature's beauty. He knows there's a shadow upon his soul so he manifests it's power onto his weapons, allowing him to channel this power to thwart evil.

MAVEITH; LEVEL 5 SEEKER|WARDEN
Medium humanoid, Goliath
===========================================================================
HP 50; Bloodied 25
Surges per Day 9; Surge Value 12
AC 22; Fortitude 19, Reflex 18, Will 19
Speed 6
Action Points 1
===========================================================================
TRAITS
Shadow-Wrought Weapon
Maveith, being touched by the shadow of the Unseelie court at a young age, can manifest this darkness into the form of special weapons or magic weapons. In his case, it assumes the form of a Dwarven Thrower Craghammer he’s named Shadow Sledge. This lasts for as long as he manifests the power or until he becomes unconscious, where he’ll have to take short rest to recover it.
Nature’s Wrath
As a defender of nature, Maveith can mark on adjacent enemy as a free action, until the end of his next turn.
Bludgeon Expertise
When Maveith uses any hammer with a power that pushes or slides a target, he can push or slide the target an additional 5-ft.
Goliath Traits
As a goliath, Maveith has access to the racial abilities Stone’s Endurance, which once per encounter as a minor action, can resist 5 to all damage until the end of his next turn.
Seeker’s Power
As a seeker, Maveith has access to the following invocations: Spirit’s Rebuke and Inevitable Shot.

+10 vs. AC, 1d10 + 6 damage.

Ranged 6/12 squares; +10 vs. AC, 1d10 + 6 damage. If the target doesn’t end it’s turn at least 2 squares away from it’s starting position, it takes an extra +4 damage. He must be wielding Shadow Sledge to use this power.
(m) Resilience of Life (primal, weapon) • At Will
+10 vs. AC, 1d10 + 6 damage, and an ally adjacent to Maveith gains 4 temporary hit points.
(c) Stinging Nettles (primal, weapon) • Encounter
Close blast 2, one enemy in the blast; +10 vs. AC, 1d10 + 2 damage and each other enemy in the blast takes 4 damage. As an effect, each enemy in the blast is marked by Maveith until the end of his next turn.
(r) Stampede Shot (primal, weapon) • Encounter
+10 vs. Fortitude, 1d10 + 1d6 + 6 damage, and Maveith pushes the target, and each enemy adjacent to the target, 5 squares.
(m) Form of the Walking Conflagration (fire, polymorph, primal) • Daily
Effect: Maveith assumes the form of the Walking Conflagration, a flaming avatar of destruction, until the end of the encounter. While he is in this form, he gains resist 5 fire. For the remaining of the encounter, when he marks an enemy using his Nature’s Wrath feature, that enemy gains vulnerable 3 fire until the mark ends. Once during the battle, he can use the Walking Conflagration attack while in this form:
—(m) +10 vs. AC, 1d10 + 6 damage. Effect: The target takes ongoing 5 fire damage and is dazed (save ends). While the target is dazed by this effect, whenever an enemy starts its turn in a square adjacent to the target, that enemy takes fire 4 fire damage.

I made this character at work because, well we're on lock-down due to the Virus going around and because I found these cool feats called Serenity (Dragon magazine) and Winter's Champion. So I decided to make a Viking-like Paladin of Ulutiu, a deity in the Realms that gets little fan-fare.

THE FROST-KNIGHT OF ULUTIU; CR 16
hp 134 (16 HD)
=================================================================================
Male Damaran human paladin 16 of Ulutiu
LG Medium humanoid
Aura courage (10-ft. allies gain +4 against fear)
Init +1; Senses Listen +6, Spot +6
Languages Common, Damaran
=================================================================================
AC 30, touch 14, flat-footed 29
(+12 armor, +4 shield, +3 deflection, +1 Dex)
Immune disease, fear
Fort +21, Ref +15, Will +20
=================================================================================
Speed 20 ft. (4 squares) in +4 full-plate; base 30 ft.
Melee +4 valorous greatsword +25/+20/+15/+10 (2d6+11/19-20)
Base Atk +16; Grp +21
Atk Options Power Attack, Shock Trooper, smite evil 4/day (+6 attack, 16 damage or 48 when charging)
Special Actions lay on hands 96 points/day, turn undead 9/day (+8, 2d6+19; 13th)
Combat gear armbands of might, winged boots
=================================================================================
Paladins Spells Prepared (CL 12th):
4th—draconic might, ice storm (DC 20), meteoric strike (DC 20)
3rd—diamond steel, find the gap, righteous fury
2nd—chill metal (DC 18), fell the greatest foe, knight’s move, remove paralysis, resist energy
1st—chill touch (+21 melee touch, DC 17), divine favor, rhino’s rush (2), silverbeard
Spell-Like Abilities (CL 16th):
At will—detect evil
4/day—remove curse (two uses to break enchantment)
=================================================================================
Abilities Str 20, Dex 12, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 22, Cha 8
SQ aura of good (overwhelming), code of conduct
Feats Battle Blessing, Improved Bull Rush, Power Attack, Practiced Spellcaster, Serenity, Shock Trooper, Surefooted, Winter’s Champion
Skills Concentration +17, Diplomacy +14, Heal +11, Knowledge (religion) +5, Sense Motive +21
Possessions combat gear plus +4 full-plate, +4 valorous greatsword, +2 animated heavy steel shield, belt of giant strength +6, cloak of resistance +3, periapt of Wisdom +6, ring of holiness, ring of protection +3


Ring of Holiness is a magical item that grants it's wearer the ability to prepare one additional 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level divine spell. I took 1/3 the cost of each ring of Wizardry I, II, and III to come up with the total cost (since it's similar in that it grants an extra slot but not as strong since it doesn't double the number, just gives one).

Personal information:
Pheyloo Audark was born in the Winterwood in the year 1272 DR. His father was a powerful ranger of Solonor Thelandira, and his mother was a Hierophant druid of Rillifane Rallathil, and Pheyloo delighted in the stories of his parents deities, though his favorite tales were of Erevan Ilesere and the trickster gods adventures among the Seldarine and other pantheons of Toril. It was in those stories that Pheyloo heard the calling of Erevan Ilesere, much to his parents dismay. In 1286 DR, at the age of 14 though his clan was attacked by a hoard of Orcs, mold men and humans who completely obliterated his small clan of only 100 green elves. His mother cast a powerful spell that transformed her son into a great hawk to hide him from their enemies as he watched the battle from the tree-tops in horror. The last two remaining of the clan was his parents who fought back to back, felling scores of enemies until they were overwhelmed by sheer numbers. The last thing he seen was his mother looking up at him as she smiled and cast her last spell. The tree bough that his hawk form was perching on suddenly opened up and swallowed him whole, transporting him to an ancient oak tree far to the south of the Winterwood. Exiting the tree with screams of terror and rage, Pheyloo ran back to his clans dwelling while praying to Erevan Ilesere to grant him the power to slay his family's murderers. It was back at the site of the massacre three days later that members of the Eldreth Veluuthra found him and brought him into their organization with promises of revenge against the humans and orcs that destroyed his clan. As Pheyloo was leaving the kill-zone of his people, he thought he heard the mischievous laughter of a fellow elf behind him, but when he turned to look there was nobody there. A voice suddenly entered his mind as he followed the Eldreth Veluuthra toward the nearest human and orc settlement. "Now you will find the skills you will need to prepare you for your future."

After many years of professionally killing all types of humanoids and monsters, Pheyloo became a master assassin and earned the well deserved reputation and moniker of "Shadowcat" all across Faerun. Within the ranks of the Eldreth Veluuthra he gained many enemies due to his near-legendary exploits and relentless pranks and jokes on his fellow cell members and the Vel'Nikeryma (or Blade Lords) in the name of Erevan Ilesere. His career with the Eldreth Veluuthra came abruptly to an end in 1347 DR when his cell leaders under the command of the Vel'Nikeryma sent Pheyloo to Everlund to kill a innocent human wizard and his elven wife and half-elf children. After several days of watching and studying his Marks, he came to the conclusion that this family had done no crime or evil against the elven people and that the Eldreth Veluuthra only wanted them dead due to the half-elven children. He decided then that he would renege on his contract and explain himself to the Vel'Nikeryma directly, but before he could even leave his Marks property he was ambushed by all the members of his own cell and caught in the middle of several fireball spells aimed at the family's house and at himself. Pheyloo had nowhere to run, and soon felt himself being blasted back and buried under the burning building. Not long afterwards, Pheyloo came-to and opened his eyes and felt his lungs burning for air. He prayed to his trickster god and asked him to let him survive, so that he could recover from his wounds and seek revenge against the Vel'Nikeryma and his ex-cell members with the most surprising prank and joke he had yet played on them; The joke would certainly be on them all when they died realizing he was still very much alive!

With sheer determination Pheyloo envisioned the tavern down the street and cast a dimension door spell and disappeared from beneath the charred, smoldering house, instantly appearing on his back in front of the tavern. "Well there you are.", said a deep, melodic voice above him. Pheyloo opened his burned eyes to see a very tall moon elf with rakish red hair and piercing, bright blue eyes standing over him. "I was beginning to think that our mutual god was tricking me out of yet another winning game of dice, but alas, his message was true, and here you are." Laughed the strange moon elf as he crouched down and put a hand on Pheyloo's chest and prayed to Erevan Ilesere for a powerful healing spell. "Our mutual god?" asked the severely injured assassin. "We'll talk about that, and your future, after you're healed Shadowcat." said Curudin Ahmaquissar with a wry smile on his face. The wild elf thought he saw a plethora of multi-colored, asymmetrical star bursts floating across the moon elfs eyes before he passed out from his injuries.

Within the next six months, Pheyloo Audark hunted down his ex-cell members of the Eldreth Veluuthra that ambushed him and though him dead, and murdered each and every single one of them with a personal touch, ensuring that they knew who it was ending their life. After Pheyloo assassinated the entire cell, he went back to Everlund to accept Curudin Ahmaquissar's offer to join his thieves guild, and rose swiftly through the ranks of The Rogues of the Laughing Midnight., and ended up becoming great, lifelong friends with Curudin and the other high ranking members of the guild.

Prestige Classes:

The Quietknife

From the darkest streets of Skullport, to the back alleys of Calimport. From the throne rooms of kings, to the dive bars of Starmantle. No matter what part of Faerun you mention, the bards sing tales of specialized elven assassins known as Quietknives. Little is known about the silent killers, but some bards say that they only appear to take vengeance and revenge upon those who have committed a ghastly act or crime against the elven people.

A Quietknife must be stealthy, quick, and skilled at both ranged and melee combat. The quickest path to this prestige class is to begin with one or two levels of rogue in order to gain the necessary skills and sneak attack ability, and then switch to fighter or ranger to improve overall combat ability (in the form of base attack bonus) and learn the necessary feats.

A few Quietknives acquire some arcane spellcasting in the form of a couple of levels of sorcerer or wizard, because spells such as invisibility or deep slumber can make the deadly work of the Quietknife much easier. A Quietknife of this sort often begins with three or four levels of rogue, then gains five or six levels in an arcane spellcasting class. However, qualifying for the Quietknife class is much easier with the bonus feats offered by either the fighter or ranger class.

Requirements
To qualify to become a Quietknife, a character must fulfill all the following criteria:

Race: Elf or Half elf
Skills: Balance 3 ranks, Climb 3 ranks, Hide 6 ranks, Jump 3 ranks, Move Silently 6 ranks, Tumble 3 ranks
Feats: Point Blank Shot, Quick Draw, Two-Weapon Fighting, Weapon Finesse.
Base Attack Bonus: +4
Special: Sneak attack +2d6.

Class Skills
The Quietknife's class skills are Balance, Bluff, Climb, Disable Device, Handle Animal, Hide, Intimidate, Jump, Knowledge (local), Listen, Move Silently, Open Lock, Search, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Spot, Swim, and Tumble.

Skill Points at Each Level: 6 + Int modifier.

Class Features
As you advance in level, you become better at switching from melee combat to ranged combat in the blink of an eye. You become a mobile and infuriating opponent who can launch a devastating barrage of sneak attacks.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: You gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

Rapid Daggers: At 1'st level, whenever you are throwing knives and daggers, you are treated as having the Rapid Shot feat, even if you do not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

Silent Daggers(Su): At 1'st level, every dagger and knife you throw are treated as if they have a Silence spell placed on them. Most Quietknives, true to their names, throw daggers in this way.

Sneak Attack (Ex): Beginning at 2nd level, you deal an extra 1d6 points of damage when you are flanking an opponent or at any time when the target would be denied its Dexterity bonus. This extra damage applies to ranged attacks only if the target is within 30 feet. At 5th level the extra damage increases to 2d6, and at 8th level it increases to 3d6. See the rogue class feature.

Sneaky Shot (Ex): At 3rd level, just before making a ranged attack, a Quietknife with this ability can use a move action to make a Sleight of Hand check opposed by her target's Spot check. If she wins the opposed check, her opponent is denied his Dexterity bonus to Armor Class against the attack.

Returning Daggers (Su): Also at 3rd level, you become so skilled with thrown weapons that you can cause four knives a day to gain the returning special ability. When you make a ranged attack with a returning dagger, you can move after the attack, and the weapon will still return to you as long as line of sight between you and the weapon exists at the beginning of your next turn.

Weak Spot (Ex): A Quietknife gains this ability only after reaching 4'th level. When using a thrown weapon against a target, the character can make a ranged touch attack instead of a normal attack. If the attack hits, the quietknife adds her Dexterity bonus for the damage instead of her strength bonus.

Snatch Arrows: A Quietknife gains the benefit of the Snatch Arrows feat at 4th level, even if she does not meet the prerequisites.

Fast Movement (Ex): At 6th level, you have mastered the art of unusually swift movement. Your land speed is faster than the norm for elves by 10 feet. This benefit applies only when you are wearing no armor, light armor, or medium armor and not carrying a heavy load. Apply this bonus before modifying your speed because of any load carried or armor worn.

Palm Throw (Ex): At 6'th level when using thrown daggers, a Quietknife with this ability may throw two of each weapon with a single attack roll. Damage for each weapon is resolved separately, and the Quietknife applies her Dexterity bonus to either damage roll.

Vengeful Strike (Su): Beginning at 7th level, as a standard action you can execute a single vengeful strike in place of sneak attack. You coldly whisper the name of your intended victim to your weapon, and then you make a single melee or ranged attack. You gain a +2 morale bonus on the attack roll. If you hit, your foe must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + your class level + your Dex modifier) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds, and bestowed with 1d4 negative levels.

You must know the victim's name in order to make a vengeful strike; "that orc over there" is not good enough. Creatures without names (most creatures of Intelligence 2 or lower) are not subject to a vengeful strike. You usually use this ability against a person or creature you know to have harmed elves. You can use this ability once per day at 7th level and three times per day at 10th level.

Superior Returning Daggers (Ex): When you reach 7th level, your returning daggers ability is extended. You can use two returning daggers for two attacks each in a single round, or you can use one returning dagger for three attacks in the same round, as long as your target is no farther away than one range increment. (If your target is farther away than one range increment, you can still use your superior returning dagger ability, but only for a single attack each turn.)

Dagger of death: At 9'th level, a Quietknife can create a dagger of death that forces the target, if damaged by the dagger’s attack, to make a DC 25 +Dex Mod, Fortitude save or be slain immediately. It takes one day to make an dagger of death, and the dagger only functions for the Quietknife who created it. The dagger of death lasts no longer than one year, and the Quietknife can only have one such dagger in existence at a time. This dagger may be used for both melee and ranged attacks.

Critical Throw (Ex): At 9'th level, a Quietknife gains the Improved Critical feat for any thrown weapon without meeting the prerequisites.

Hail of daggers (Ex): At 10'th level, in lieu of her regular attacks, once per day a Quietknife can throw a dagger at each and every target within range, to a maximum of two targets for every level of this class she has earned. Each attack uses the Quietknifes primary attack bonus, and each enemy may only be targeted by a single dagger.

Shadow-walkers

Shadow-walkers are people who have experienced a magical ritual of the gods Erevan Ilesere and Mask that attunes a person's body to shadow. Similar to shades, they gain powers in shadow and darkness. Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar, high mischiefmaker of Erevan Ilesere in ancient Sharlarion, discovered a rite granted by his deity called the Ritual of Shadow Walking circa -24,000 DR. This ritual exchanges some of the recipient's life force for shadowstuff. The recipient appears exactly the same as before, although her shadow stands out as crisp and dark even in overcast situations. As of 1373 DR it is rumored that Curudin Ahmaquissar had shared the ritual with Jalaunther Ithbreeiur, high priest of the Maskarran temple in Thesk as instructed by his trickster god. The Shadowmasters use this ritual to allow their agents to enter and leave difficult spots with ease, and they normally work in pairs, with two agents transporting together to the site of the intended crime.

Creating a Shadow-walker
"Shadow-walker" is a template that can be applied to any humanoid (referred to hereafter as the "base character"). It uses all of the base character's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Special Attacks: A shadow-walker retains all the special attacks of the base character. The shadow-walker also gains the ability to manipulate shadows, granting her access to various spell-like abilities based on her character level, as shown in the table below. These spell-like abilities are as the spells cast by a sorcerer of the base character's level.

Level Abilities
1-2 Shadow mask 3/day
3-4 Dimension door 1/day (self only)
5-6 Darkness 3/day
7-8 Dimension door 2/day
9-10 Shadow spray 3/day
11-12 Shadow walk 1/day
13-14 Displacement 2/day
15-16 Dimension door 3/day
17-18 Evard's black tentacles 1/day
19+ Shadow walk 3/day

A shadow-walker cannot use any of her spell-like abilities in an area of bright light (sunlight or the radius of a daylight spell.

Special Qualities: A shadow-walker retains all the base character's special qualities, and also gains those special qualities listed below.

Light Blindness (Ex): Abrupt exposure to bright light (such as sunlight or daylight spell) blinds a shadow-walker for 1 round. In addition, she takes a -1 penalty on all attack rolls, saves and checks when operating in bright light.

Darkvision (Ex): The character gains darkvision with a 60-foot range if she does not have darkvision already.

Abilities: Adjust from the base character as follows: Dex +2, Con -2.

Skills: Shadow-walkers gain a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks.

Challenge Rating: Same as the base character +1.

Level Adjustment: Same as the base character +1.

Thank you Diffan.

As a member of the Rogues of The Laughing Midnight, he is able to contract himself to whomever he wants, as long as the client pays his bill and tab, and the guild gets it's share. The elven guild of Erevan Ilesere is open to all forms of not being a guild at all. It just so happens that like minded elves gather to adventure the old places. Not for loot, unless the loot is elven in nature, in which it becomes a matter of history and pride.

I cannot count how many times Curudin Ahmaquissar took jobs from simple elves, doing simple jobs, asking for help with the human control of the town or how elven High Magic is not allowed in Silverymoon anymore without consent from Evermeet.

These things were a powerful subject among elves in that year.

In such times you want an elven assassin. Who says all assassins are evil? Morals are subject to who sees them. Sometimes you need a job done. What one nation might see as evil, another may see as justice.

If Pheyloo was alive during the Crown Wars, he may have been the one to end the war with a simple or difficult assassination.

Probably, Ive come to really despise making high/epic level characters, especially in 3.5. I usually only do it by request or if the campaign calls for one. Otherwise, I'll stick to low- and mid-level ones.

Honestly, I'm thinking about sticking to mNPCs for E6 games.

Why 1/2 and Will -1?

I might clearly missed rule of course.

"Small beings can have small wisdom," the dragon said. "And small wise beings are better than small fools. Listen: Wisdom is caring for afterwards."
"Caring for afterwards ...? Ker repeated this without understanding.
"After action, afterwards," the dragon said. "Choose the afterwards first, then the action. Fools choose action first."

Level 1 Warrior has 1/2 CR. Wisdom of 8 gives -1 penalty to Will saves. Of course, I tend to regard CR with a grain of salt in 3.5 edition.

It uses the NPC class: Warrior. So it's not as strong as a level 1 Fighter and all NPC classes use half their HD for CR. The Warrior has saving throw bonus +2/+0/+0 and with a Wis of 8 (-1), the Elf's will save is -1.

No, they're two separate organizations.

If you want more info on them, George Krashos had a great PDF on the organization and their workings HERE. Really great stuff

George Krashos did a great job. I didn't know of of that until I had brought up an older 3.0 adventure called Into the Dragons Lair and it was great additional info about Cormyr.

In our one 3.5 adventure, the players are close to finishing the Anauroch: empire of shade adventure and closing out the chapter that is the treat to the Weave (for now) from Netheril. On the Shadow Shore, there's hosts of Krinth warriors who fight for their Netherese overlords. Unfortunately they're rather dull and not overly strong mechanically and my PCs will chew through then in a matter of rounds.

So I made one Krinth that's sort of their Champion, a leader amongst them who is a raging warrior of the plane of Shadow, who's belief in Shade is unmatched. So here is the Krinth Captain

Quick check, does your campaign enforce alignment restrictions? "No" is totally legit answer. I ask because 3.5ed barbarians cannot be lawful and keep their rage feature.
