GM R0B0GEISHA's Ironfang Invasion Recruitment


Recruitment

1 to 50 of 120 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | next > last >>

1 person marked this as a favorite.

As the Ironfang Legion carves out an empire of monsters from the nations of Nirmathas and Molthune, our heroes must flee their hometown of Phaendar as it burns, saving any lives they can!

-----------------------

Expectations
- Committed players who can ideally post once a day.
- If you don't post for a week without an explanation first, I reserve the right to remove you from the game. If you don't post for an extended period (48+ hours) in combat, expect to be warned then quickly DMPCed.
- Don't be a jerk.
- I try to run all rules as written, unless otherwise stated before hand. If I mess up, tell me and I'll fix it. If you mess up, be willing to accept correction. I think I'm pretty fair.
- Applicants should be decent writers with a commitment to role-playing.
- You have read the Ironfang Invasion Player's Guide and are at least somewhat knowledgeable about Golarion.

-----------------------

Game Style
- We'll be using Roll20 for combat, so if accepted, please make an account.
- I roll initiative for everyone, enemies of the same type all act together. Combat is run in chunks. For example: all players before monster A and monster A (update), then all players after A but before B and B (update), then any left over players (update).
- I will try to remember to prompt you for knowledge rolls, and may sometimes roll skills for you when it would benefit you.

-----------------------

Level: 1

Ability Scores: 20 point buy

Alignment: Non-evil

Races: Anything official. The weirder it is, the better your story should be. Alternate racial traits and heritages are fine. No Fiendish Heritage, you can be a Demon-Spawn or Asura-Spawn or whatever without the feat, no abilities of the d100 table.

Classes: Anything Paizo, all archetypes available.

HP: Max at first, then 1/2+1

Traits: 2 traits, one must be a campaign trait.

Starting Gold: Average

-----------------------

To apply you need a completed stat block, a completed back-story, and a description of the characters appearance and personality. I am recruiting four to five players. I'm looking for good writing and characters that will mesh well together.

Good luck and thanks for applying! :)


Dotting! Possibly going for a cavalier.


Dotting in as well.

EDIT: Forgot to ask: Background Skills?


I'll make my barbarian tonight.


Dotting


I am thinking I want to do something out of my comfort zone like a Speaker for the Past Shaman or a Spirit Dancer Medium or a Kinetic Knight Kineticist. Might even try for a prestige class, I have never even played one in Pathfinder. It feels good to have ideas!

I'm going with a retired war veteran. Bloodrager with the draconic (green) bloodline, to match the great dragon of Fangwood. Probably going Dragon Disciple down the line. :D

That's a good question. People should select background skills.


Got a LN Human Ranger/Fighter. Will probably take the Ironfang survivor trait. Backstory is he travels with rangers and druids of the Green Faith a lot, usually between Crystalhurst and the Wildwood Lodge in the Verduran forest in Taldor (where he's from).


@ GM R0B0GEISHA: Is there a set deadline?

Not yet, no. Aiming for somewhere around a week from now, but nothing specific. I'll update when I do.


Applying with Arthorion Aegas, human draconic bloodrager. The stat block is ready, I'll include the backstory and character description soon.


@ GM R0B0GEISHA: got it! Thanks.

Okay, applying with Carthas Brambleroad, a wandering hedge doctor who treats the ills and wounds of the people of Nirmathas, most recently in the Nesmian Plains area. Mechanically, he's a half-elven alchemist with the chirurgeon and Bramble Brewer archetypes. An interesting wilderness character who's got a few skills beyond the norm for an alchemist.

Formulae Book
1st - bomber’s eye, cure light wounds, keen senses, longshot, shield

Special Abilities:

Traits
Clever Wordplay - Your cunning and logic are more than a match for another’s confidence and poise. Benefit: Choose one Charisma-based skill. You attempt checks with that skill using your Intelligence modifier instead of your Charisma modifier.
Frontier Healer - You make your way in life by putting people back together after the rigors of the world take their toll—brewing herbal remedies, setting broken bones, and treating diseases. You gain a +1 trait bonus on all Heal and Knowledge (nature) checks, and one of these skills is always a class skill for you. Any time you restore hit points using the Heal skill or a cure spell (but not with channeled energy, lay on hands, or a magic device such as a potion or wand), you restore 1 additional hit point, plus 1 for every 2 class levels you have beyond 1st.

Racial Abilities
Elven Immunities - Half-elves are immune to magic sleep effects and gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.
Keen Senses - Half-elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
Low-Light Vision - Half-elves can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Elf Blood - Half-elves count as both elves and humans for any effect related to race.
Dual Minded - The mixed ancestry of some half-elves makes them resistant to mental attacks. Half-elves with this racial trait gain a +2 bonus on all Will saving throws. This racial trait replaces the adaptability racial trait.
Fey Thoughts (1 RP) - Select two of the following skills: Acrobatics, Bluff, Climb, Diplomacy, Disguise, Escape Artist, Fly, Knowledge(nature), Perception, Perform, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Stealth, Swim, or Use Magic Device. The selected skills are always class skills for the character. This trait replaces multitalented.

Class Features
Alchemy (Su) - Alchemists are not only masters of creating mundane alchemical substances such as alchemist’s fire and smokesticks, but also of fashioning magical potion-like extracts in which they can store spell effects. In effect, an alchemist prepares his spells by mixing ingredients into a number of extracts, and then “casts” his spells by drinking the extract. When an alchemist creates an extract or bomb, he infuses the concoction with a tiny fraction of his own magical power—this enables the creation of powerful effects, but also binds the effects to the creator. When using Craft (alchemy) to create an alchemical item, an alchemist gains a competence bonus equal to his class level on the Craft (alchemy) check. In addition, an alchemist can use Craft (alchemy) to identify potions as if using detect magic. He must hold the potion for 1 round to make such a check.
An alchemist can create three special types of magical items—extracts, bombs, and mutagens are transformative elixirs that the alchemist drinks to enhance his physical abilities—both of these are detailed in their own sections below.
Extracts are the most varied of the three. In many ways, they behave like spells in potion form, and as such their effects can be dispelled by effects like dispel magic using the alchemist’s level as the caster level. Unlike potions, though, extracts can have powerful effects and duplicate spells that a potion normally could not.
An alchemist can create only a certain number of extracts of each level per day. His base daily allotment of extracts is given on Table: Alchemist. In addition, he receives bonus extracts per day if he has a high Intelligence score, in the same way a wizard receives bonus spells per day. When an alchemist mixes an extract, he infuses the chemicals and reagents in the extract with magic siphoned from his own magical aura. An extract immediately becomes inert if it leaves the alchemist’s possession, reactivating as soon as it returns to his keeping—an alchemist cannot normally pass out his extracts for allies to use (but see the “infusion” discovery below). An extract, once created, remains potent for 1 day before becoming inert, so an alchemist must re-prepare his extracts every day. Mixing an extract takes 1 minute of work—most alchemists prepare many extracts at the start of the day or just before going on an adventure, but it’s not uncommon for an alchemist to keep some (or even all) of his daily extract slots open so that he can prepare extracts in the field as needed.
Although the alchemist doesn’t actually cast spells, he does have a formulae list that determines what extracts he can create. An alchemist can utilize spell-trigger items if the spell appears on his formulae list, but not spell-completion items (unless he uses Use Magic Device to do so). An extract is “cast” by drinking it, as if imbibing a potion—the effects of an extract exactly duplicate the spell upon which its formula is based, save that the spell always affects only the drinking alchemist. The alchemist uses his level as the caster level to determine any effect based on caster level. Creating extracts consumes raw materials, but the cost of these materials is insignificant—comparable to the valueless material components of most spells. If a spell normally has a costly material component, that component is expended during the consumption of that particular extract. Extracts cannot be made from spells that have focus requirements (alchemist extracts that duplicate divine spells never have a divine focus requirement). An alchemist can prepare an extract of any formula he knows. To learn or use an extract, an alchemist must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the extract’s level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against an alchemist’s extract is 10 + the extract level + the alchemist’s Intelligence modifier. An alchemist may know any number of formulae. He stores his formulae in a special tome called a formula book. He must refer to this book whenever he prepares an extract but not when he consumes it. An alchemist begins play with two 1st level formulae of his choice, plus a number of additional forumlae equal to his Intelligence modifier. At each new alchemist level, he gains one new formula of any level that he can create. An alchemist can also add formulae to his book just like a wizard adds spells to his spellbook, using the same costs and time requirements. An alchemist can study a wizard’s spellbook to learn any formula that is equivalent to a spell the spellbook contains. A wizard, however, cannot learn spells from a formula book. An alchemist does not need to decipher arcane writings before copying them.
Bomb (Su) - In addition to magical extracts, alchemists are adept at swiftly mixing various volatile chemicals and infusing them with their magical reserves to create powerful bombs that they can hurl at their enemies. An alchemist can use a number of bombs each day equal to his class level + his Intelligence modifier. Bombs are unstable, and if not used in the round they are created, they degrade and become inert—their method of creation prevents large volumes of explosive material from being created and stored. In order to create a bomb, the alchemist must use a small vial containing an ounce of liquid catalyst—the alchemist can create this liquid catalyst from small amounts of chemicals from an alchemy lab, and these supplies can be readily refilled in the same manner as a spellcaster’s component pouch. Most alchemists create a number of catalyst vials at the start of the day equal to the total number of bombs they can create in that day—once created, a catalyst vial remains usable by the alchemist for years.
Drawing the components of, creating, and throwing a bomb requires a standard action that provokes an attack of opportunity. Thrown bombs have a range of 20 feet and use the Throw Splash Weapon special attack. Bombs are considered weapons and can be selected using feats such as Point-Blank Shot and Weapon Focus. On a direct hit, an alchemist’s bomb inflicts 1d6 points of fire damage + additional damage equal to the alchemist’s Intelligence modifier. The damage of an alchemist’s bomb increases by 1d6 points at every odd-numbered alchemist level (this bonus damage is not multiplied on a critical hit or by using feats such as Vital Strike). Splash damage from an alchemist bomb is always equal to the bomb’s minimum damage (so if the bomb would deal 2d6+4 points of fire damage on a direct hit, its splash damage would be 6 points of fire damage). Those caught in the splash damage can attempt a Reflex save for half damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the alchemist’s level + the alchemist’s Intelligence modifier.
Alchemists can learn new types of bombs as discoveries (see the Discovery ability) as they level up. An alchemist’s bomb, like an extract, becomes inert if used or carried by anyone else.
Brew Potion (Ex) - At 1st level, alchemists receive Brew Potion as a bonus feat. An alchemist can brew potions of any formulae he knows (up to 3rd level), using his alchemist level as his caster level. The spell must be one that can be made into a potion. The alchemist does not need to meet the prerequisites for this feat.
Dendrite Mutagen (Su) - At 1st level, a bramble brewer’s mutagen still contains transformative power, but grants a treelike sturdiness rather than the feral power of standard mutagens. When imbibed, dendrite mutagen grants a +4 natural armor bonus, a +2 alchemical bonus to one physical ability score, and a –2 penalty to the corresponding mental ability score (as per the normal mutagen class feature;. In addition, the alchemist gains fast healing 1 as long as he is in an area of bright light (such as sunlight or inside the area of a daylight spell).
This ability otherwise works like the standard mutagen class feature and replaces that ability.
A bramble brewer who selects the greater mutagen discovery can create a dendrite mutagen that still grants a +4 natural armor bonus, and also grants a +4 alchemical bonus to one physical ability score and a +2 bonus to a second physical ability score. The bramble brewer takes a –2 penalty to both associated mental ability scores as long as the mutagen persists, but his fast healing increases to 3 as long as he is in an area of bright light.
This ability otherwise works like the greater mutagen discovery and replaces that ability.
A bramble brewer who selects the grand mutagen discovery can brew a dendrite mutagen that now grants a +6 natural armor bonus, a +6 alchemical bonus to one physical ability score, a +4 alchemical bonus to a second physical ability score, and a +2 alchemical bonus to a third physical ability score. The bramble brewer takes a –2 penalty to his Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores as long as the mutagen persists. The bramble brewer’s fast healing increases to 5 as long as he is within an area of bright light.
This ability otherwise works like the grand mutagen discovery and replaces that ability.
Throw Anything (Ex) - All alchemists gain the Throw Anything feat as a bonus feat at 1st level. An alchemist adds his Intelligence modifier to damage done with splash weapons, including the splash damage if any. This bonus damage is already included in the bomb class feature.

Backstory:

Carthas Brambleroad, formerly Carthas Algaresla, never knew who his father was. His mother was an Elven sacred prostitute of Calistria in Molthune who had the anti-contraception brew fail on her. Though she kept him and gave birth to him, she never truly cared for him, viewing him more as an annoyance than a child. Though he initially lived in the temple to Calistria, he was sent away at age 10, as they had no desire to keep such a homely looking boy around. He was taken in by a hedge doctor named Hork Small who treated soldier’s ills and wounds, and used him as mostly a gopher and beating stick when he drank enough. Carthas quickly learned to walk small and avoid notice, and shut himself away from others, no matter how friendly.

The one benefit of living with Hork was that his keen mind was able to learn some of what he did by watching the doctor at work, and by sneaking into the doctor’s workshop when he was either sleeping or passed out. Hork did directly teach him some things, but only when he was feeling generous or in a good mood. Eventually, he began secretly experimenting with some of what he found until he felt confident he could do so on his own, then, one night when the doctor was passed out drunk at 18, he ran away, stealing what supplies he could carry to practice the hedge doctor’s trade.

He traveled towards the border with Nirmathas with various caravans and other groups, bartering his skill as a hedge doctor for transport and food. He wound his way towards the border, hoping the doctor hadn’t reported him to the authorities, and that if the man had, he won’t be found out. During these travels, a merchant’s guard named Volex took some pity on him, and taught him a bit out how to use some basic weapons to defend himself if he was attacked. Carthas also discovered certain combinations of reagents could become highly volatile and explosive when combined, and he nearly blew his hand off in that incident. He also discovered he could replicate certain magical effects - a product of his Elven heritage, he supposed. Eventually, the caravan reached the front, and Carthas was able to sneak across the border, and into freedom.

Carthas initially thought about traversing the Bloodworn Vale and heading to Varisia, but he found Nirmathas pleasant, and chose to stay. He has spent the past 10 years in Nirmathas, honing his craft, going from village to village, treating the ills of the common folk in exchange for lodging, food, and sometimes coin. He’s grown used to living off the land and sleeping under the stars when need be, and though he has no true friends, there are many who recognize him and will take the time to talk to him. Now calling himself Carthas Brambleroad, he has spent the past 2 years in the Nesmian Plains. He finds the setting beautiful, and the region has enough population that he can easily keep to a specific, circuitous route. He is able to pass through Phaendar at the time when most people gather and the merchants from other parts of Nirmathas come, for this is the best time for him to acquire actual coin for his services, as well as to find supplies he may not be able to acquire in the wild or during the rest of the year. He finds his new life to be a good one, and perhaps he will even settle down in the area and stop wandering someday. He isn’t worried. He has plenty of time to figure it out.


Dotting to this thread as well. I'm making a dwarven geokineticist, hopefully up this weekend.


Dotting.


I'll get my Magus submitted Sunday.


Question for the GM:
I have an idea, but it's odd enough that I'm not sure you'd be okay with it. The thing about Aasimars is that they have someone in their family tree of celestial heritage. It can be passed down the generations or appear at random. Changelings are the daughters of hags that have slept with someone with the intention to conceive. Following this, is it possible to play a changeling aasimar?

Mechanically, the character would be an aasimar with the changeling aspects coming out in the fluff. I was thinking of playing someone that has just come of age and is beginning to hear her mother's call. I don't know if there's a hag in this AP, but I thought this would be a cool hook for you to use for something.

Why is that?

1) Know what the AP is actually about and not what one think it is about.

2) What is and isn't suitable for PC.
3) Know which optional rules you will use (or not), kinda ties to 1 and 2.


Applying with this character; human ranger/divine marksman. Will tweak and be ready by Monday.


Here's my submission: Correna Kirklist, 1/2 orc Sorcerer of the Orc bloodline!

Good Luck Everybody!

Racial Abilities
Relentless
Dwarves are skilled at pushing their way through a battlefield, tossing aside lesser foes with ease. Dwarves with this racial trait receive a +2 bonus on combat maneuver checks made to bull rush or overrun an opponent. This bonus only applies while both the dwarf and his opponent are standing on the ground. This racial trait replaces stability.

Unstoppable
Some dwarves train from a young age to outlast orcs on the battlefield. They gain Toughness as a bonus feat and a +1 racial bonus on Fortitude saves. This racial trait replaces hardy.

Rock Stepper
Dwarves with this racial trait can skillfully negotiate rocky terrain. They can ignore difficult terrain created by rubble, broken ground, or steep stairs when they take a 5-foot step. This racial trait replaces stonecunning.

Craftsman
Dwarves are known for their superior craftsmanship when it comes to metallurgy and stonework. Dwarves with this racial trait receive a +2 racial bonus on all Craft or Profession checks related to metal or stone. This racial trait replaces greed.

Backstory:

Rogar Stonehammer was born to a traditional dwarven family in a small, unnamed Nirmathi town, raised to worship Torag as the protector and creator. From a young age, Rogar proved adept at manipulating metal, becoming a decent weapons smith. He was otherwise unremarkable, if a bit weak for a dwarf. Most of his life he spent working with the earth and metal, growing a deep understanding of such materials. He had a comfortable existence, doing quite well for himself even at his young age of 35. On his 44th birthday, though, the fearsome Ironfang Legion attacked his ramshackle hometown, razing the village completely and leaving no survivors.

Well, there was one survivor. A young dwarven smith, resilient and hardy beyond anyone's knowledge, lay in his collapsed forge, buried in rubble. He lay, dying, in the midst of the stones and bricks that were his former livelihood, calling out to Torag to take vengeance on the ones responsible for this destruction. Much to his surprise, Torag responded. Rogar refuses to say exactly what transpired, but the dwarven deity gave the young smith two gifts; the power to exact vengeance for his family, and a deep bond with the material he so loves. Leaving town with little more than the clothes on his back, Rogar set off in pursuit of the Ironfang soldiers. Unskilled with tracking, he quickly lost the trail, instead finding himself in Phaendar. He's been in the town for about a month now, honing his new Torag-given powers and recovering from his narrow scrape with death.

Appearance/Personality:

Rogar is typical height for a dwarf; standing just over 4 feet tall. His hair and beard, the color of stone and clay, respectively, are braided with metal studs, and his eyes are a deep silver color. He's solidly built, yet surprisingly agile and weak. He's gruff by human standards, but no more so than the average dwarf. While occasionally difficult to understand, he lacks much of the deep dwarven accent normally associated with his race.

He's somewhat outgoing, but still reserved, preferring not to talk about his past. He's something of a "knock out first; ask questions later" kind of dwarf, especially when it comes to hobgoblins. He prefers to use solid, yet agile, motions for controlling earth, with precise and powerful blows- just like with a hammer- pushing foes back one step at a time to give his allies more room to maneuver. While unskilled at melee, he's tough enough that he stays relatively close to the frontlines, launching rocks at foes who are causing too much trouble.

One of his favorite tricks is to control the dust in the air, coalescing it in a massive whirlwind, compacting it into a solid rock through sheer force of will, launching it as an arrow, boulder, or ribbons of fluid rock.

- No to templates.

- Conditional yes to 3rd party stuff. Just run it by me first.
- No to generic classes.
- You can play whatever you want age-wise, but it's unlikely that I'll take a child or a geriatric. And I don't want to use the ability score adjustments.

And don't worry, I always read the modules before I run them. ;)

Well I was putting finishing touches on my old wizard when you posted this lol. Oh well.

Claustipher Whetwhistle

[color=red] Everyone, no matter the age, wants to be useful. [/color] Again I wrote this before your post lol.

An old, white haired man sitting at a table off to the side can he heard speaking with a slight quaver in his voice with a young woman who just arrived.

"Yes, yes. I am Claustipher. Do you need something scribed by an old man?"

From what she says she clearly wants something else and the man pauses for a moment thinking. His eyes grow a little wistful.

"No no, I am sorry. I no longer have my spell book form my adventuring days, it went to my student. I.... I can't cast magic like that anymore just simple stuff."

"Well maybe I can help. I may not be powerful like I was decades ago but I am still sharper then most, lets go look."

With that the old man grabs his old staff, levers himself up, and exits with her. You can see a twinkle in his eyes that wasn't there at the start of the conversation and a small grin.

-------------------

Claustipher Whetwhistle settled in Phaendar about twenty years ago after deciding that his adventuring days were over. He had seen much of the world and done his part for society. Most importantly he had trained an apprentice well to take up his mantel and as a parting gift even gave him his time-worn spell book. He keept a small book, like a novice mage, for little things that might prove useful but that was it.

Now he makes a modest living identifying magical items, doing a bit of research for people and, primarily, copying documents for people. His mind is sharp but he feels the end of his life approaching and doubts it holds one last adventure.

Your character looks fine as long as you're not using the age adjustments. :)


Oh, I did use the age adjustments to his stats. I can make him a little more robust.

Background:
Background
Hubert began his life as so many other halflings do, in bondage. Born a slave in Cheliax, he was kept about a ship for his early childhood until a chance encounter with one of the Eagle Fleet of Andoran. The captain, a staunch freedom-fighter and longtime enemy of the Chelish Empire by the name of Marco Soldato, took the Iron Devil as his prize. Freeing Hubert along with the rest of the slaves on board, he became a hero in the eyes of the young halfling.

After growing up in Andoran, Hubert decided he would take his freedom-loving heart out to the world and do what good he could. He joined the Bellflower Network for a short time, helping to smuggle slaves (mostly gnomes and halflings) out of Molthune and to freedom. Along the way, he witnessed a gruesome and ghastly event; a group of passengers were betrayed by one of their own under torture. The entire group was slaughtered in a horrible fashion, while Hubert hid nearby. Having arrived just too late to help them, all he could do was stay out of sight and hope he would not suffer the same fate. After that, he decided the Network was not for him, and made his way across the border to Nirmathas.

In the land of Nirmathas, he has come to the town of Phaendar, looking to score some coin and possible allies, and do some good as he can.


I came up with a more flavourful idea :
Nagaji asperant druid

* Young Characters?

* Ability Scores adjustments by Age Categories: Core or PFS like?

I also strongly suggest whoever will GM this read the Player Guide and read, not skim, the first part of the AP, including the Foreword.

- You can play whatever you want age-wise, but it's unlikely that I'll take a child or a geriatric. And I don't want to use the ability score adjustments.

And don't worry, I always read the modules before I run them. ;)

* That's why I asked "Core like or PFS like?", in PFS, age categories, young included, are cosmetic, no ability scores adjustment.

* Can be a good idea to read them before making a recruitment thread. ;)


Arthorion's profile is finished, including backstory, physical description, and personality.


I've settled on a deadline. It'll be 9 pm EST Thursday.


I'm submitting Kudera Rivani for consideration. Her backstory and description were just uploaded. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can clarify anything.

Side question for R0B0GEISHA: I'm interested in going with the Herb Witch archetype as it would probably be more thematic for the Adventure Path, but RAW would prevent me from taking a hex (other than cauldron) till level 3. If I went with that archetype, would you allow me to use my level 1 feats for extra hexes? Thanks in advance!


Very interested in joining this AP, perhaps as a (feral?) hunter or a slayer (sniper). I'll try to have something ready by Monday.


I'm gonna go ahead and submit Clementine here. Will fill in backstory later.


"Otho Goodbarrel present. I'm ready for my first mission commander."

Stats and backstory are in the profile

I don't see why not.

.
When an alchemist brews a mutagen, he selects one physical ability score—either Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. It’s a standard action to drink a mutagen. Upon being imbibed, the mutagen causes the alchemist to grow bulkier and more bestial, granting him a +2 natural armor bonus and a +4 alchemical bonus to the selected ability score for 10 minutes per alchemist level. In addition, while the mutagen is in effect, the alchemist takes a –2 penalty to one of his mental ability scores. If the mutagen enhances his Strength, it applies a penalty to his Intelligence. If it enhances his Dexterity, it applies a penalty to his Wisdom. If it enhances his Constitution, it applies a penalty to his Charisma.

Throw Anything (Ex)
All alchemists gain the Throw Anything feat as a bonus feat at 1st level. An alchemist adds his Intelligence modifier to damage done with splash weapons, including the splash damage if any. This bonus damage is already included in the bomb class feature.

fluff:

Phaendar for this time off as well make it even more relaxing. Never before having known the Horrors that come with death and dying en mass took a heavy toll on his pyschke.

Developing a twitch and feeling like those he lost or were killed while he was not close were always watching him. They were always moving his things and messing with his mind. Nithlir needed this break to look in side and see if being a healer in the army was what he really wanted to do or not.

Always having the gift of healing and being of divine heritage allowed Nithlir to be a prime candidate to
use his innate powers to bring the wounded back to the front. He had never really given it much though, being an orphan an always trying to help others this was just one more place to help as many as he
could.


Olaf the Battle Oracle is mad at the Ironfang for trying to kill him, ready to take the fight to them.
