About Filnefillan "Fil" Lotusbow

Filnefillian Lotusbow
High Elf Wizard 4

Filnefillian is a clasically schooled wizard from an elven settlement in the Vesve forest to the north of Veluna. Sadly, his settlement was raided regularly by Drow, forcing his teachers to instill in him a sense of being constantly aware of his surroundings as well as being able to defend himself without magic if needed, thus his bow. Filnefillian was charged with finding an artifact to either seal the tunnels or defeat the drow below the forest. He has a strong sense of right and wrong, and will assist others if he finds something needing doing, especially since he has little money left after his travels...

GM Backstory


Fil's charge was truly to seek out elven artifacts to help defend the settlement in the Vasve forest. He was told that the area in Verbabonc was once an area where Gray elves lived, so he is looking there for artifacts, and will be searching the dungeons for elven items that could aid his home's defenses or aid his research into the split between the Elves and Drow. He does not expect to be successful, but, if he finds anything, he would be ecstatic.

Reactionary You were bullied often as a child, but never quite developed an offensive response. Instead, you became adept at anticipating sudden attacks and reacting to danger quickly. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Initiative checks.

Classically Schooled: Your apprenticeship or early education was particularly focused on the direct application of magic. ou gain a +1 trait bonus on Spellcraft checks, and Spellcraft is always a class skill for you.

(text altered from Thassilon to Verbabonc, since it was a former Elven home in Greyhawk lore...):
Lore Seeker: The secrets of the ancient fallen temples of old Verbabonc intrigue you, particularly the
magical traditions of the former elven culture. You’ve studied magic intensely, and hope to increase that
knowledge by adding to that lore. You’ve come to Hommlet to pursue that study, and chose Hommlet
as your base because it was out of the way of bigger cities—meaning less competition to study the ancient
monuments in the region, you hope! You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (arcana) checks, and Knowledge
(arcana) is a class skill for you. If you cast arcane spells, pick three spells on your spell list. You are particularly
adept at casting these spells, so they function at +1 caster level when you cast them, and their save DCs (if any) gain
a +1 bonus. (Charm Person, Color Spray, and Silent Image, were chosen)

Arcane Bond (Bonded object: Ring) Per Core Rulebook
Wizards who select a bonded object begin play with one at no cost. Objects that are the subject of an arcane bond must fall into one of the following categories: amulet, ring, staff, wand, or weapon. These objects are always masterwork quality. Weapons acquired at 1st level are not made of any special material. If the object is an amulet or ring, it must be worn to have effect, while staves, wands, and weapons must be wielded. If a wizard attempts to cast a spell without his bonded object worn or in hand, he must make a concentration check or lose the spell. The DC for this check is equal to 20 + the spell’s level. If the object is a ring or amulet, it occupies the ring or neck slot accordingly.
A bonded object can be used once per day to cast any one spell that the wizard has in his spellbook and is capable of
casting, even if the spell is not prepared. This spell is treated like any other spell cast by the wizard, including casting time,
duration, and other effects dependent on the wizard’s level. This spell cannot be modified by metamagic feats or other
abilities. The bonded object cannot be used to cast spells from the wizard’s opposition schools (see arcane school).

Universalist School

Hand of the Apprentice (Su): You cause your melee weapon to f ly from your grasp and strike a foe before instantly returning to you. As a standard action, you can make a single attack using a melee weapon at a range of 30 feet. This attack
is treated as a ranged attack with a thrown weapon, except that you add your Intelligence modifier on the attack roll instead of your Dexterity modifier (damage still relies on Strength). This ability cannot be used to perform a combat maneuver. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.

Metamagic Mastery (Su): At 8th level, you can apply any one metamagic feat that you know to a spell you are about to cast. This does not alter the level of the spell or the casting time. You can use this ability once per day at 8th level and one additional time per day for every two wizard levels you possess beyond 8th. Any time you use this ability to apply a metamagic feat that increases the spell level by more than 1, you must use an additional daily usage for each level above 1 that the feat adds to the spell. Even though this ability does not modify the spell’s actual level, you cannot use this ability to cast a spell whose modified spell level would be above the level of the highest-level spell that you are capable of casting.
