About Quenly

There is Truth in the Darkness.

Quenly is a tall, graceful elf. He wears Osirian-style desert robes and a somewhat distant expression.

He is typically accompanied by an ebony dragon, no bigger than a housecat. Quenly communicates telepathically via this creature.

Quenly is the new Jacinth Sage, a member of the Order of Jeweled Sages.

Bot me!:

Quenly has a wide range of options in combat. He is capable of melee, but needs to be buffed to be effective. He will often serve as a divine support caster.

Use your spells to support rather than to attack directly.

A good first action in combat is Blessing of Fervour.

If your party needs another melee, use Many Forms to adopt a suitable shape - large magical beast (eg sleipnir, catoblepas, chimera) or medium dragon. If you have time, buff with Divine Favour, Displacement.

If determined to melee against strong opposition, your normal prep sequence is: swift action - quicken divine favour; move action - animate your animated buckler; standard action - many forms. Next round either use a breath weapon, or cast displacement (and grace if needed) and move into melee.

Remember that you can cast most of your spells even when shapechanged. You have Still Spell, Eschew Materials, and as a deaf oracle all your spells are Silent (for free).
