and a +2 racial bonus on initiative checks.
• DARKVISION 60 FT: Though uncommon, some groups of elves are born with
darkvision, rather than low-light vision. In many cases this is taken as a sign of a
drow in the elf's ancestry, and can lead to persecution within the elf's home

also gain sensitivity to light and are dazzled in areas of bright light or within the
radius of a daylight spell.

you feel disheartened when you can't do what they ask. When a family member makes a

or succeed at a DC 20 Will saving throw, which you can attempt once per day at the

lose your family or lose contact with your family, exchange this drawback for the
Doubt drawback. (PFUCgn 65)

light crossbow is a move action that provokes attacks of opportunity. You can shoot,
but not load, a light crossbow with one hand at a –2 penalty on attack rolls. You can
shoot a light crossbow with each hand, but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if
attacking with two light weapons. This penalty is cumulative with the penalty for
one-handed firing. [Weapon 2 (PFCR)]

Void school:

The void is a complex idea considered by some to be a fifth element—one that comprises thought, space, spiritualism, and insight. Wizards who tap into its mysterious powers gain control over energies that bind the earth to the heavens and the planes to their mysterious and eternal alignments, as well as the powers that stitch living beings to their spirits.

The void elemental school presented here is an additional arcane school for the wizard class.

A wizard who specializes in the void element gains a number of school powers and one bonus spell slot of each level that the wizard can cast, from 1st on up. This bonus spell slot must be used to prepare a spell from the void elemental school’s spell list.

Unlike a normal arcane school, the void elemental school requires the wizard to select a single element (air, earth, fire, or water) as his opposition school. A wizard must expend two spell slots to prepare a spell from his opposed elemental school as normal. He does not need to select a second opposition school.
Void Magic

Add the following spells to your wizard spell list at the listed spell level:

1st—keen senses, 3rd—twilight knife*, 4th—wandering star motes, 6th—true seeing, 8th—moment of prescience.

Void Awareness (Su)

Your ability to recognize the void allows your body to react to magical manifestations before you’re even aware of them. You gain a +2 insight bonus on saving throws against spells and spell-like abilities. This bonus increases by +1 for every five wizard levels you possess.

At 20th level, whenever you would be affected by a spell or spell-like ability that allows a saving throw, you can roll twice to save against the effect and take the better result.

Reveal Weakness (Su)

When you activate this school power as a standard action, you select a foe within 30 feet. That creature takes a penalty to its AC and on saving throws equal to 1/2 your caster level (minimum –1) for 1 round. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence bonus.

Aura of Prescience (Su)

At 8th level, you can emit a 30-foot aura of void energy for a number of rounds per day equal to your wizard level. Allies within this aura gain a +2 insight bonus on ability checks, attack rolls, damage rolls, saving throws, and skill checks. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Tal is an elf who grew up with eyes the color of ominous black pits. His mother died in childbirth and it kept the relationship with his father strained. Though his eyes helped him look into the darkness, it did not help him find a lot of friends. He has always been a child who got himself into trouble and got quick on his feet running away from chasing angry people. He grew up apprenticing his father as a wizard and there he found his eyes weren't only good for looking into the dark. Thanks to his strange eyes he could see and manipulate the flow of magic quite easily. Offensive spells are easily to resist if you know how they work when cast on you.

Still a young elf by normal standards, Tal got in good graces with some noble's sons. Partying was fun and he was good at it. It is always fun to be able to lift girls skirts from a distance. However, at one party at the Duke's house he "accidentally" set the Dukes beard on fire for a drunken dare. Taldor nobles are quite fond on their beards and having yours burned away made the Duke take out a hit on Tal.

He had to ran away from the Duke's ire and contacts, and went to live with his aunt in Sandpoint. As far away from the Duke as possible. Though he is grateful of his aunt and likes her, he hates it in Sandpoint. It is absolutely boring and there is nothing to do at all. There are almost no elves save him and a couple of others, the villagers are way too friendly. There is no one to get into trouble with.

His aunt, Niska Mvashti, is the "wise woman" of the village. She gave Tal a place to hide and sends him on errands to keep him out of too much trouble.

Tal is a jokester and does not like to take life too seriously. He prefers chasing women and starting trouble where he goes to provide entertainment for himself and others. He is a bit too smart than is good for him as his running mouth has often gotten him into trouble. He wairs sunglasses against the sun and makes sure his clothes look fashionable and clean. Nothing would ruin his day more than getting gore over his clothes.

rp example:

The noise from outside forces Tal to wake up and open his eyes. His head is still pounding a little when he tries to rise. He looks to the side and sees a pretty girl lying next to him. Oh damn what was her name again? Marissa, Clarissa, ugh it has to be something that ends with issa. He picked her up last night, another visitor to the town for the Swallowtail Festival. Not wanting to wake her up and have the morning after talk, Tal sneaks outside silently.

As he walks down the stairs of the inn, he sees Ameiko cleaning up after the night before. "Walk of shame Talwin?" She says with a wink.
"I am never ashamed of walking, dear Ameiko." Tal responses with a grin on his face. They have hooked up a couple of times since Tal has been in Sandpoint, both understanding it was only for the night and having fun while at it.
"Could I bother you for some breakfast and water? My head is killing me." Tal says while taking a seat at the bar. Ameiko brings him some bread, chicken legs and broth to eat and when he starts attacking the food, Ameiko stands in front of Tal, leaning on her arms with a huge grin on his face. "You aren't forgetting anything are you Tal?"
With his mouth still full he responds "Wvaff? *swallows* What? The name of that girl? Pfft, she will find another strapping lad to lead her around the town anyway."
Ameiko's grin widens "Nooooooo" she says teasingly. "I believe a certain someone asked you to do something....".
Still chewing his food, Tal's face looks back at her questioningly. When it suddenly dawns on him, he starts chewing slower and swallows. He hits his head with the flat of his hand and shouts "BLASTED DEMONIC BUNNIES OF DOOM!" I promised Niska I would bring her fresh fish from the harbor for her stew! He jumps from his chair and runs towards the door.
He brakes on his feet and runs back towards the bar, drops five silver pieces on the counter, picks a leg of chicken and kisses Ameiko on the forehead saying "Thanks for reminding me, love! See you later!" And out the door he goes.

Once outside he glares against the bright sunlight and quickly dons his sunglasses. Ugh way too bright!
He hurries towards the market through the bustling streets. A lot of strangers here, hopefully none that know me from Taldor. He thinks peering at the strangers walking in the streets. He takes a back route to the harbor and picks up some of the fish Niska needed. Unfortunately they already sold out all of the tuna.

Once back at Niska's place, Tal takes a deep breath and prepares what what's coming to him. He tries to sneak inside and drop the fish in the kitchen, hoping Niska is still out for one of her walks. Tiptoeing through the residence he reaches the kitchen and just as he places the fish on the counter his fears become reality as he hears a raspy female voice behind him say "So Talathel... I thought I asked you to bring me the fish before ten o clock. And I believe I asked tuna as well?"
Damned racoons of the fiery hells! He turns around and apologetically says "Sorry aunt Niska, they ran out of tuna. And please don't call me by that name. People here know me as Talwin, please use that or Tal." [dice=bluff]1d20+7[/dice]
As Niska walks up to Tal she slaps him on the back of the head. With a stern face she says "I told you I will not have you lie to me Talathel! You can save those for those young girls you try to woo all the time. Your mother would be very disappointing. And I will use the name she gave you in my own house! Those silly nobles will never set foot in this place anyway."
Tal hangs his head in defeat. "Yes Niska...I am sorry. I was too late and the tuna was sold out." He says apologetically.
Niska's stern face shifts instantly to a friendly one when she smiles and says "Thank you for being honest. Good thing I went there myself and got the things I needed already. Now as punishment for forgetting your task you will have to walk me to the forest for the coming five days."
Tal stammers "But if you went to get the tuna yourself...why did you ask me to...*sigh*...very well...anything else you need today?"
Niska starts preparing the fish and over her shoulder she says "Nothing right now Talathel, enjoy yourself at the festival, but be sure to be back here tomorrow at noon. I do so enjoy our walks together. Hi hi hi."
Tal looks at her for a moment and the cogs start turning into place. "You did all that just to make sure I would walk with you didn't you...*sigh* I see I still have much to learn, auntie." Tal says with a grin. He kisses Niska on the check and walks up stairs to get a fresh batch of clothes before heading outside towards the festival.
"Don't you break young girls hearts now Tal! That sort of stuff leads to trouble!" Niska shouts when Tal opens the outside door.
Tal shakes his head and grins as he puts on his sunglasses and walks towards the festival terrain.
