Special Abilities and Spells:
Aura (Ex): A warpriest of a chaotic, evil, good, or lawful deity has a particularly powerful aura (as a cleric) corresponding to the deity's alignment (see detect evil).
Blessings (Su): A warpriest can call upon his blessings a number of times per day equal to 3 + 1/2 his warpriest level (7). Each time he calls upon any one of his blessings, it counts against his daily limit. The save DC of these blessings is equal to 10 + 1/2 the warpriest's level + the warpriest's Wisdom modifier (16). Kyffin's blessings are Good and Healing.
Holy Strike: You can touch one weapon and bless it with the power of purity and goodness. For 1 minute, this weapon glows green, white, or yellow-gold and deals an additional 1d6 points of damage against evil creatures. During this time, it’s treated as good for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. This additional damage doesn’t stack with the additional damage from the holy weapon special ability.
Powerful Healer: You can add power to a cure spell as you cast it. As a swift action, you can treat any cure spell as if it were empowered (as the Empower Spell feat), causing it to heal 50% more damage (or deal 50% more damage if used against undead). This ability doesn't stack with itself or the Empower Spell feat.
Sacred Weapon (Su): Whenever the warpriest hits with his sacred weapon, the weapon damage is based on his level and not the weapon type (d8).
Fervor (Su): This ability can be used a number of times per day equal to 1/2 his warpriest level + his Wisdom modifier (6).
Sacred Weapon (Su, Sw) (8r)
Channel Energy (Su): A warpriest can release a wave of energy by channeling the power of his faith through his holy (or unholy) symbol. This energy can be used for healing or to deal damage, depending on the type of energy channeled and the creatures targeted. Using this ability is a standard action that expends two uses of the warpriest's fervor and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. The warpriest must present a holy (or unholy) symbol to use this ability.
Sacred Armor (Su): At 7th level, the warpriest gains the ability to enhance his armor with divine power as a swift action. This power grants the armor a +1 enhancement bonus. For every 3 levels beyond 7th, this bonus increases by 1 (1). The warpriest can use this ability a number of minutes per day equal to his warpriest level (8m). This duration must be used in 1-minute increments, but they don’t need to be consecutive.

Kyffin Rhees, a half orc, dresses in typical Qadiran garb, layering tunics, robes, scarves, and other wraps of fine linen and silk in blue and white, red and gold. He’s brightly colored, much like a peacock, and he knows it - even revels in it. Some light leathers underneath and an array of weapons at his sides (scimitar, morning star, dagger, crossbow) show him to be a military man however.
His icon is mostly accurate, though is armor is not yet so fine, and the scarf wrapped around his head is white to denote a Knight of Sarenrae - someone to whom you can beg for mercy in battle.
A Qadiran mercenary for many years, he has traveled with many trade caravans across the wide deserts of his native land, as guard and entertainer to the little families that would develop on the road. His love though are the cities along the way, and he’s careful to donate a little something to the church of Sarenrae in each hamlet or village.
From an early age in Boap, a small village outside the Qadiran city of Khoka along the Pashman river, he could tell stories, but he knew no stories to tell. He heard so many from the various slaves, merchants and others traveling through Khoka that it intrigued him. Many worshipped Sarenrae, and he read many a book of the Birth of Light and Truth - a holy text among Sarenrae-ans. Still, what little came to him was insufficient to slake his thirst for stories.
So he travelled far and wide, looking for good stories to tell. He started simply, as you might imagine, hiring on as a cook’s helper, or valet to some lesser nobleman (or, more likely, rich wanna-be) - whatever we could do to get free passage elsewhere in Qadira. Though he occasionally entertained his various masters, he did not perform for money. To him that was cheapening the whole experience.
Oh, he accepts coin for a nice tall tale sure, and will pay out handsomely for the same. But to be creative on call… that seems unnatural and arbitrary. He’s never managed to be creative under pressure.
He lingered in various interesting places along the river at first and throughout the land of Qadira as he grew, but never for too long, always on the move for something new. Something different. As he grew into a man, he learned fencing from many masters largely associated with the church. Not always the brightest student, his skills improved, but he could not say what methods he was using - often muddling his Agrippa and his Capo Ferro swordsman styles for example.
Finally Qadira itself become merely ordinary to his creative needs and, after a particularly successful tour with a somewhat successful merchant, he found himself with the funds to really travel. Abroad even. And so he did.
He packed what gear he could afford, and what items he’d gathered over the years, and traveled.
Unfortunately, he remembers little of this.
He knows he’s Quadiran, if from his clothes alone, and his swagger. But he remembers little of his youth. There are snippits of stories throughout his mind, but he does not know if they come from his own past, or the others he met on the road over the years. He’s muddled, but does his best not to show it. The stories he tells now are often first person, whether they’re his or not. Those that are told in the narrative about others, may well be about himself. He simply doesn’t know.
His tattoos he feels were once of some importance, and there's something yet they may teach him. At night, in the dim moonlight, he'll trace what he can on his chest and shoulders and wonders idly if it's a map - and if so, will it lead to his sanity?
Finally, he likes to imagine himself as a member of the Cult of the Dawnflower but he really has no idea. He yearns to find out of course, and is equally ready to join should he not already be a member of that militant group.
