Bloodline Arcana Whenever you cast a spell that deals energy damage, you can change the type of damage to electricity. This also changes the spell's type to Electricity.

Cantrips You learn a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spells, but they do not consume any slots and may be used again.

Elemental Bloodline (Air) The power of the elements resides in you, and at times you can hardly control its fury. This influence comes from an elemental outsider in your family history or a time when you or your relatives were exposed to a powerful elemental force.

Elemental Ray (Sp) You can unleash an elemental ray as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. This ray deals 1d6+2 points of electricity damage You can use this ability 7 times per day.

Fearless (Ex) Halflings receive a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against fear. This bonus stacks with the bonus granted by Halfling Luck.

Halfling Luck (Ex) Halflings receive a +1 racial bonus on all saving throws.

Highlander (hills or mountains) You were born and raised in rugged badlands or hills, and you've become something of an expert at evading the predators, monsters, and worse that haunt the highlands. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks, and Stealth is always a class skill for you. This trait bonus increases to +2 in hilly or rocky areas.

Keen Senses (Ex) Halflings receive a +2 bonus on Perception skill checks.

Resistance to Electricity (Ex) You may ignore 10 points of Electricity damage each time you take electricity damage.

Scholar of the Great Beyond (Knowledge (Planes)) Your great interests as a child did not lie with current events or the mundane-- you have always felt out of place, as if you were born in the wrong era. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (History) and Knowledge (Planes) checks, and Knowledge (Planes) is always a class skill for you.

Sure-Footed (Ex) Halflings receive a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics and Climb skill checks.

Weapon Familiarity (Ex) Halflings are proficient with slings and treat any weapon with the word "halfling" in its name as a martial weapon.

Edrukk, Warpriest 7
Description
64 years old
4' 4" tall
199 pounds

Edrukk is the son of a well-respected weaponsmith and has several brothers that have taken up the craft. Edrukk, however, was always more interested in the use of the weapons than in their creation. His father, sensing a chance for a different sort of fame for the family, allowed his son to pursue training as a warrior. It was through some of the others in his class that he came to be familiar with Gorum and found something there, something that fit him better than the tales of Torag and his forge. He even meditated on what he was feeling, trying to sort out his emotions, and eventually realized what he'd been denying -- his heart belonged to the Lord in Iron, not the Forgefather. He has devoted himself to his god since that time.

Despite his disappointment at who his son worshiped, Thorvir was still proud that one of his sons was able to channel the divine. Better that it had been Torag, but the power of a god is significant, regardless of which it might be.

In order to follow his god's path, Edrukk felt the need to leave their largely peaceful tunnels and go to where Gorum's glory could be witnessed - on the field of battle. Several years of traveling with mercenary companies led him to the Forcastle Watch, where he joined the garrison just over a year ago. He still has not found what he seeks, so when his contract was up for renewal, he chose to strike out on his own, going to the village of Wolfstone after hearing rumors of adventure and gold. Thus far, all he has seen are thugs and thieves, but he still has a little coin and can afford to be patient. Besides, after judicious application of his mace to the head of a mugger on his first night in town, the scoundrels have largely left him alone...
