Mystery Life

Oracle's Curse Clouded vision: Cannot see past 60', but has darkvision. (Note: I'm also treating this as including poor resolution even w/in 60'. She can't read fine print w/o assistance, but her sense of touch is very good.)

Revelation Channeling: Channels positive energy as a cleric of her level; cures/inflicts 3d6, save DC 16*.

Revelation Healing Hands: +4 on Heal checks, can use the Heal skill on two people at a time.

Inspired Panache (Ex): More than just a lightly armored warrior, a swashbuckler is a daring combatant. She fights with panache: a fluctuating measure of a swashbuckler's ability to perform amazing actions in combat. At the start of each day, a swashbuckler gains a number of panache points equal to her Charisma modifier (minimum 1) and Intelligence modifier (minimum 1). Her panache goes up or down throughout the day, but usually cannot go higher than her Charisma modifier and Intelligence modifier (minimum 1), though feats and magic items can affect this maximum. A swashbuckler spends panache to accomplish deeds (see below), and regains panache in the following way.

Critical Hit with a Light or One-Handed Piercing Melee Weapon: Each time the swashbuckler confirms a critical hit with a light or one-handed piercing melee weapon, she regains 1 panache point. Confirming a critical hit on a helpless or unaware creature or a creature that has fewer Hit Dice than half the swashbuckler's character level doesn't restore panache.

Deeds: Swashbucklers spend panache points to accomplish deeds. Most deeds grant the swashbuckler a momentary bonus or effect, but some provide longer-lasting effects. Some deeds remain in effect while the swashbuckler has at least 1 panache point, but do not require expending panache to be maintained. A swashbuckler can only perform deeds of her level or lower. Unless otherwise noted, a deed can be performed multiple successive times, as long as the swashbuckler has or spends the required number of panache points to perform the deed.

Derring-Do (Ex): At 1st level, a swashbuckler can spend 1 panache point when she makes an Acrobatics, Climb, Escape Artist, Fly, Ride, or Swim check to roll 1d6 and add the result to the check. She can do this after she makes the check but before the result is revealed. If the result of the d6 roll is a natural 6, she rolls another 1d6 and adds it to the check. She can continue to do this as long as he rolls natural 6s, up to a number of times equal to her Dexterity modifier (minimum 1).

Dodging Panache (Ex): At 1st level, when an opponent attempts a melee attack against the swashbuckler, the swashbuckler can as an immediate action spend 1 panache point to move 5 feet; doing so grants the swashbuckler a dodge bonus to AC equal to her Charisma modifier (minimum 0) against the triggering attack. This movement doesn't negate the attack, which is still resolved as if the swashbuckler had not moved from the original square. This movement is not a 5-foot step; it provokes attacks of opportunity from creatures other than the one who triggered this deed. The swashbuckler can only perform this deed while wearing light or no armor, and while carrying no heavier than a light load.

Opportune Parry and Riposte (Ex): At 1st level, when an opponent makes a melee attack against the swashbuckler, she can spend 1 panache point and expend a use of an attack of opportunity to attempt to parry that attack. The swashbuckler makes an attack roll as if she were making an attack of opportunity; for each size category the attacking creature is larger than the swashbuckler, the swashbuckler takes a –2 penalty on this roll. If her result is greater than the attacking creature's result, the creature's attack automatically misses. The swashbuckler must declare the use of this ability after the creature's attack is announced, but before its attack roll is made. Upon performing a successful parry and if she has at least 1 panache point, the swashbuckler can as an immediate action make an attack against the creature whose attack he parried, provided that creature is within her reach.

Inspired Finesse (Ex): At 1st level, a swashbuckler gains the benefits of the Weapon Finesse feat with the rapier (this ability counts as having the Weapon Finesse feat for the purpose of meeting feat prerequisites) and gains Weapon Focus (rapier) as a bonus feat. This ability replaces swashbuckler finesse.

Appearance: Cynara is, like most elves, tall and slender. Her hair is a shade of blond so pale as to appear white in most light, and her eyes are also pale and cloudy. She typically wears a scarf over her eyes, as they look somewhat disconcerting even to those used to dealing with elves. Only the faintest hint of tan touches her skin despite the years she's spent outdoors in the brutal Katapesh sun. When not adventuring she wears simple light-colored robes and carries a staff with which she feels her way; she invariably carries a ball of yarn and knitting needles, or several hanks of embroidery floss and a needlepoint frame.

Appearance: Cynara is, like most elves, tall and slender. Her hair is a shade of blond so pale as to appear white in most light, and her eyes are also pale and cloudy. She typically wears a scarf over her eyes, as they look somewhat disconcerting even to those used to dealing with elves. Only the faintest hint of tan touches her skin despite the years she's spent outdoors in the brutal Katapesh sun. When not adventuring she wears simple light-colored robes and carries a staff with which she feels her way; she invariably carries a ball of yarn and knitting needles, or several hanks of embroidery floss and a needlepoint frame.

Background:
Studious and clever, albeit more gregarious than the stereotypical bookish recluse, Cynara had always intended to be a scholar, but the Fates had other plans. Her Mystery chose her in her 105th year, just before she reached adulthood. For some time afterward she was despondent over the effect of the curse on her vision--it made reading fine script extremely difficult. She could no longer easily follow the tomes and scrolls she had loved, so the path of the scholar seemed to be closed to her. In addition, oracles of her sort are quite rare in elven society--the deities associated with her Mystery are not those typically worshiped by elves. So despite the generally positive reception given to elven oracles, she had very few peers. It was at that time that she was recruited into the Shin'Rakorath, as they needed an agent in Katapesh to (among other things) keep track of the flourishing trade in exotic items--anything that might betray drow origin needed to be reported. The Shin'Rakorath have given her a purpose she thought she'd lost with her vision, these many years ago, and she is a true believer in their mission.

Because of her curse she has trouble with direct examination of items, so she acts primarily as a point of contact for the network that Indriel, her handler in the Lantern Bearers, set up and maintains. She cannot read or write well, but she can encode information in knitted or needlepointed pieces; the blind elf healer with her knitting needles has become a fixture of the Katapesh bazaars in the time that she's been there.

History:
Cynara is a member of the Lantern Bearers, a shadowy group of elves devoted to standing against the threat of the drow and their allies, and concealing their existence from the rest of the world. Because her Mystery is one favored by Sarenrae, she was sent to Katapesh by Swallowtail himself some forty years ago. Since then she has worked as a healer and otherwise kept her ears open for any sign of dark elves in the lands south of the Inner Sea. Few other Shin'Rakorath members are permanently stationed in the area (the closest are Aerel, a wizard in Quantium, and Shiriena, a ranger in Ipeq), and her primary contact in the organization is Indriel, a rogue who passes through every year or two.

Five years ago she sent a report that included mention of Zolurket as something to watch for; the possibility that the depths of Tar-Urkatha hide a way into the Underdark made it a potential conduit for drow activity. The Elder-moot's unwillingness to back the reclamation made it a low priority, or so she thought. Six months ago she received a directive to prepare to investigate Zolurket personally, since Sangvit had defied the Elder-moot and was about to return. Reestablishment of the dwarven stronghold there is thought by her superiors to reduce the possibility of a drow incursion; despite the risk of discovery of the dark elves, the Lantern Bearers have an interest in seeing the reclamation succeed. If it does, she has been ordered to remain there if at all possible, to discourage further exploration into the Underdark and keep watch for the drow. (Besides, potentially embarrassing the Governing Council is a little something extra--the Lantern Bearers are elves, after all!)
