  1. Lethal Reword 5: True Mirage

    [​IMG]


    It was subtle, at first. Back when you could step into another world and not even notice it. Distracted by the world, you pass right on through, and back... with maybe a shiver, or the feeling of something being off. When alone at home, you see a black, humanoid figure creeping in your peripheral vision... when, just as soon as you see it, it's gone. At night, you lie awake - hearing sounds that a home could not possibly make. For a few moments, the wind whispers names. The streams laugh, and the trees grumble at the cruelty of mankind.

    Then it's gone. It was just your imagination, so you go back to your normal, daily life.

    That is... until things start vanishing. Structures, people, trees... and no one but you seems to remember that it was once there. Colors, as well... a field of grass suddenly becoming the tones of a black-and-white movie... and no one else seems to notice. Certain areas of the world begin to have lessened gravity, making those who walk there seem to float - like being underwater. Still, no one makes any comment about it but you... like it's always been that way. It all begins to shift and alter like a dream.

    Then, after a night of restless sleep, you wake up... alone.

    The world is silent. No one there but you... as buildings fade into nonexistence. Streets crumble and fade... storms start, tearing up pieces of the world in a torrent of anti-creation. Then... slowly, surely - you painlessly fade into nothing.

    ...You wake up on the shores of a lake, next to a group of people that seem... vaguely familiar.

    You remember who you were. Where you came from. All that's left to ask is... who... what... are you now?

  2. Just to clarify:

    Our characters are OURSELVES, our actual real-life selves, transported into a fantasy version of, er, ourselves, complete with memories, correct?
     
  3. going for either incarnum or a tome of battle fightery type person.
     
  4. While your memories are intact (you, the person behindthe computer), your body hass likely been altered... even if by minor changes to your human form, or full race, gender, or body structure change. It all depends of the amount of alteratons you feel comfortable playing to create a good story.

    Racial Traits:
    Medium: As Medium creatures, half-elves have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.

    Half-elf base land speed is 30 feet.

    Immunity to sleep spells and similar magical effects, and a +2 racial bonus on saving throw against enchantment spells or effects.

    Low-light Vision: A half-elf can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. She retains the ability to distinguish color and detail
    under these conditions.

    +1 racial bonus on Listen, Search, and Spot checks: A half-elf does
    not have the elf’s ability to notice secret doors simply by passing near them. Half-elves have keen senses, but not as keen as those of an elf.

    +2 racial bonus on Diplomacy and Gather Information checks: Half-elves get along naturally with all people.

    Elven Blood: For all effects related to race, a half-elf is considered an elf. Half-elves, for example, are just as vulnerable to special effects that affect elves as their elf ancestors are, and they can use magic items that are only usable by elves. (See the Monster Manual for more information about elves, and the Dungeon Master’s Guide for more on magic items.)

    Automatic Languages: Common and Elven. Bonus Languages: Any (other than secret languages, such as Druidic). Half-elves have all the versatility and broad (if shallow) experience that humans have.

    FavoredClass:Any. When determining whether a multiclass half- elf takes an experience point penalty, her highest-level class does not count


    Class Features:

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Lurks are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light armor, and with shields (except tower shields

    Power Points/Day: A lurk's ability to manifest powers is
    limited by the power points she has available. Her base daily allotment of power points is given on Table 1–5.
    In addition, she receives bonus power points per day if she has a high Intelligence score.

    Powers Known: A lurk begins play knowing one lurk power of the player's choice. Each time she achieves a new level, she unlocks the knowledge of a new power.
    Powers are chosen from the lurk power list. (Exception: The Expanded Knowledge and Epic Expanded Knowledge feats from Expanded Psionics Handbook allow a lurk to learn powers from the lists of other classes.) A lurk can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than her manifester level.
    The total number of powers a lurk can manifest in a day is limited only by her daily power points.
    A lurk simply knows her powers; they are ingrained in her mind. She does not need to prepare them (in the way that some spellcasters prepare their spells), though she must get a good night's sleep each day to regain all her spent power points.
    The Difficulty Class for saving throws against lurk powers is 10 + the power's level + the lurk's Int modifier.

    Maximum Power Level Known: A lurk begins play with the ability to learn 1st-level powers. As she attains higher levels, she can gain the ability to master more complex powers—for example, a 4th-level lurk can learn powers of 2nd level or lower, a 7th-level lurk can learn powers of 3rd level or lower, and so on.
    To learn or manifest a power, a lurk must have an Intelligence score of at least 10 + the power's level.

    Lurk Augment (Ex): Beginning at 1st level, a lurk can augment her melee attack by selecting an ability from her available lurk aug- ments. Her level determines the abilities available for her to use (see Table 1–6). In some cases, she can also use power points to increase the power of her lurk augment. The power of the lurk augment lasts for 1 round or until the lurk's next
    attack. If that attack misses, that use is wasted. Using a lurk augment is a swift action. When powering an augment with power points, a lurk cannot spend more total power points than her lurk level on any single lurk augment. A lurk can use her lurk augments a total number of times per
    day equal to her lurk level + her Int modifier. At 10th level, a lurk can choose two augments from the list in the same swift action. Both augments count against her daily total. The total power points spent on the augments is still limited to her manifester level. For example, an 11th-level lurk could choose to include a mental assault and a solid strike in her attack, and spend a total of 11 power points between
    the two abilities. At 18th level, a lurk can choose three augments from the
    list in the same swift action, which counts as three against her daily limit. The total power points spent is still limited to her manifester level.
    Additional Sneak Attack: The lurk's next attack deals an extra 1d6 points of damage from a sneak attack. For every 2 power points spent, this damage increases by 1d6 points. The attack must be one to which sneak attack damage applies. Minimum level 1st.
    Unfocusing Strike: A creature hit by the lurk's attack must make a Will saving throw (DC 10 + Int modifier) or lose its psionic focus in addition to taking the damage from the attack. For every 2 power points spent, the DC increases by 1. Minimum level 1st.
    Solid Strike: The lurk's attack deals an extra 2 points of damage. For every power point spent, the damage increases by 1. Minimum level 3rd.
    Stunning Attack: A creature hit by the lurk's attack must make a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + lurk's Int modifier) or be stunned for 1 round in addition to taking the damage from the attack. For every 2 power points spent, the DC increases by 1. Minimum level 3rd.
    Ignore Concealment: The lurk's next attack ignores the miss chance provided by concealment or total concealment. The lurk must still attack the correct square when attacking an invisible creature. Minimum level 5th.
    Mental Assault: The lurk's next attack deals 2 points of either Intelligence or Wisdom damage in addition to its normal damage. The lurk chooses which type of ability damage to deal when activating the power. For every 2 power points spent, the ability damage increases by 1. Minimum level 5th.
    Deceptive Strike: The target of the lurk's next attack is denied his Dexterity bonus to AC for that attack. This ability works against a target with uncanny dodge, but only if the lurk's class level is at least four levels higher than the target's effec- tive rogue level. Minimum level 8th.
    Sneak Attack Undead: The lurk's sneak attack can damage undead creatures, if sneak attack damage would otherwise apply on the lurk's attack (for instance, if the undead is flanked or flat-footed). Minimum level 8th.
    Ghost Touch: The lurk's next attack can strike incorporeal creatures, as if her weapon had the ghost touch special ability. Minimum level 11th.
    Power Drain: The lurk's next attack drains a number of power points from the target equal to half the damage dealt. Drained power points are available for the lurk to use in the following round, but expire at the end of her next turn. Minimum level 11th.
    Aligned Attack: The lurk's next attack is treated as either good-aligned or evil-aligned (depending on the lurk's alignment) for the purpose of overcoming damage reduc- tion. A neutral lurk can choose either good or evil when she activates this ability. Minimum level 11th.
    Sneak Attack Constructs: The lurk's sneak attack can damage constructs, if sneak attack damage would otherwise apply on the lurk's attack (for instance, if the construct is flanked or flat-footed). Minimum level 14th.
    Stygian Weapon: A creature struck by the lurk's next attack gains 1d4 negative levels for 1 round, as the stygian weapon psionic power. For every 4 power points spent, the duration of the negative levels is increased by 1 round. Minimum level 14th.
    Planar Attack: The lurk's next attack deals an extra 2d6 points of damage to either good or evil creatures (lurk's choice). For every power point spent, the damage increases by 1d6 points. Minimum level 17th.
    Synaptic Disconnect: A creature struck by the lurk's next attack cannot cast spells, manifest powers, or use spell-like or psi-like abilities for 1 round unless it succeeds on a Will save (DC 10 + lurk's Int modifier). For every 2 power points spent, the DC increases by 1. Minimum level 17th.
    Greater Power Drain: The lurk's next attack drains a number of power points from the target equal to the damage dealt by the attack. Drained power points are available for the lurk to use in the following round, but expire at the end of her next turn. Minimum level 20th

    Psionic Sneak Attack (Ex): While psionically focused, a lurk can strike a vital spot for extra damage if she attacks an opponent while he is unable TO defend himself effectively. This is identical to the sneak attack ability of the rogue (PH 50), except the damage only applies when the lurk maintains a psionic focus.
    Sneak attack damage and psionic sneak attack damage stack, whenever both would apply to the same target.

    Initiative Boost (Ex): At 6th level and higher, a lurk can add her Intelligence bonus on her initiative checks.
    Evasion (Ex): At 9th level and higher, a lurk can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility as per the rogue ability. If she makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage.

    Slippery Mind (Ex): At 15th level and higher, if a lurk affected by an enchantment spell or effect fails her saving throw, she can attempt it again 1 round later at the same DC. She gets only one extra chance to succeed on her saving throw..

    Feats:

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Lurks are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light armor, and with shields (except tower shields).

    Dire Stun (Psyonic): WHen you choose to stun your foe with your lurk augment ability, your foe might be stunned for a long time.
    Prerequisites: Lurk augment class feature (page 14), Extra Lurk Augment.
    Benefit: When you use a lurk augment to deal a stunning strike, the save DC against the stun is increased by 2, and the stun duration is increased by 1 round.

    SELF-SUFFICIENT (GENERAL)
    You can take care of yourself in harsh environments and situations. Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Heal checks and Survival
    checks.

  8. FUN FACT:

    Becoming undead makes my AC and Meldshaping stat become the same at the cost of a single feat, vastly reducing some of the stat issues of my build.

    Paradoxically, this time the undead meldshaper is better.
     
  9. Hey, Archy!

    If you take an undead race, I'll pick up Dread Necromancer instead of the Sorcerer level I was planning. That way, we can heal you up, too.

    ...I might take Dread Necromancer anyway. The power of the school of necromancy is just so fun to abuse!
     
  10. necros fall into my lurk's "must kill" category, and i don't need to tell you how lurks treak those whey feel need to go.
     
  11. Considering we know each other from Iwaku and we're on the same side, I'm not really worried.

    A lot of the Church of Anubis (whom my character belongs to) are necromancers, and there's nothing particularly sinister about them.

    So any mistrusting feelings towards my character are rather unfounded.

    Not all necromancy is death and manipulating corpses, after all. There are good sides to it as well, much like there are 'bad' sides to positive energy. Like the fact that positive energy can burn you. Or make you explode.

    Better to have such power working -for- you than against you... and the look on enemy necromancer's faces when their undead suddenly turn on them is just priceless.
     
  12. So long as he respects the dead we'll be cool.
     
  13. She.

    Also, she's a follower of the Judge of the Dead. She's all about respecting the dead... and reigning divine retribution on those that would disturb it.

    Or allowing a killed individual vengeance upon their killer or on the employer that sent them to their early death.

    So yeah. "Non-evil" necromancy.
     
  14. Raising the read and disturbing their rest for any reason and you'll have a >=( face or two directed at you
     
  15. I can live with that.

    I mean, I don't intend on raising the dead and laughing maniacally about it, or march them through town. It'd go against Anubis' teachings.

    My Vestiges, on the other hand, from the Binder class, are mere tools used in the fulfillment of my duties. The same as my mace or armor.

    I can work out encumberance if you want but I doubt that Adra will have an issue lifting any of this stuff.


    Appearance:
    Adra has pale white skin and hair. Her eyes are completely white, lacking any pupils or irises. She's well muscled, with a comparitively small bust (by fantasy standards). There are stitches on each of her wrists and ankles where the nails went for the Ritual of Crucimigration, along with another line of stitches just below her left breast (which is where she was stabbed during the ritual).

    Adra wears a simple white Qipao and her pack; her sunglasses are used only when talking to strangers. There are sharp spines coming out of her forearms, spine, and lower legs; see this picture for an example of what they look like. She gets her clothing on very carefully.

    Am looking at the Lifebond and lifesense feats for later use, as they make for good flavor text and have nice effects. Would like to know how being undead interacts with Rageclaws-I think that they would just let her fight at an extra -3 per point of invested essentia.
     
  17. And now I've had other inspiration!

    Changing my character a bit... as I normally do.

    Appearance: Decidedly male, his powerfully muscled chest protected by glimmering chain mail. His face is that of a handsome male... though from there, his resemblance to the human race ends. His hair is long, and glimmers shades of blue and white, braided tightly behind him. He has no legs - down from his stomach extends a long, snakelike tail covered in dark green and blue scales. Huge white wings extend from his back, accented with green, blue, and purple tints. Slung over his back rests a beautifully-crafted guitar... in his right hand, slung over his shoulder is a grand halberd, and a longbow hangs from his left side, along with a quiver of arrows.

    Alignment: CG
    Deity: Thor
    Level: 3

    Appearance:
    Eyvindr is quite clearly a nordman, towering over lesser men. He has jet black hair that he gathers in a warrior's braid, though this is rarely visible in combat. His impressive stature leaves little doubt as to his role in any adventuring party - he breaks things. He wears dwarf-forged banded mail armor of peerless quality, and his warhammer hangs from his belt.

  19. hm, no free healing for me then. :/

    GMK, invest in Lesser Vigor. You're a cleric, so you can prepare any cleric spell, and Lesser Vigor is generally better than Cure Light Wounds despite being the same level. It works by giving a creature fast healing 1 for 10+caster level rounds...

    ..and because of the way fast healing works, that means it works on undead.
     
  20. IC thread is up.

    Vay, GMK, Archy, Ric, you're free to post whenever the fancy strikes you (though I do wish you'd do your skills sometime before we reach the first town).

    GMK's equipment, too.
