    An Epic in the making

    Post by Deamonata on Fri Jun 24, 2011 12:02 pm

    An ancient elven mage named Galifar brought the world to it knees with a vicious war. The war finally ended when he was defeated in battle, the battle is known as the "battle of the mere".
    No-one knows exactly what happened in that battle because none survived on either side and the body of Galifar was never found

    There is a group known only as "the cabal of shadows". They are seeking a tome called the Caldyn Fragments. The Tome however has been broken up into several g They seek to manipulate the caldyn fragments to resurect Galifar.


    Where we come in:

    Our village is attacked by an army of goblins looking for part of the tome which has been hidden in the village chapel (for the god Lathander).

    The Races of the land
    Spoiler:

    Elves

    *Drow
    Drow are a dark-skinned sub-race of elves that predominantly live in the Underdark. They are generally evil, though exceptions do exist. They are shorter than many other sub-races of elves and, in common with most Underdark-dwelling creatures, have a tremendous resistance to magic. They also have a much higher birthrate than most other elves, but strife tends to keep their numbers down. Drow have obsidian colored skin and pale yellow (or pale golden), silver or white hair, the latter being by far the most common. This hair is carefully groomed and cared for by most drow and worn long with jewelry and other accessories decorating it. Like all elves, drow are incapable of growing beards, though many males are fond of long sideburns.


    *Surface elves

    Surface Elves tend to be fair, beautiful and graceful, though they are very often frail as well. Elves are also universally long-lived, achieving what they consider adulthood at 110 years of age and living for up to 700, and more years thereafter. Because of their long lifespan, most Elves have a patience uncommon to other humanoids. Elves view the lives and concerns of younger races as fleeting and take less joy in the short-term victories that other races have to content themselves with. Instead, Elves take pleasure in things that have more endurance, such as the arts or the honing of one’s skills.

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

    Halflings

    Halflings, are humanoid creatures similar in shape to humans, but around half the size. Halflings get along well with most of the other races and are known for their curiosity and tendency to collect things. In many ways, halflings resemble small humans and usually have the same proportions as the typical human adult. Most halflings, regardless of their skin complexion, which has a similar range to humans, although it is commonly ruddy in hue, have dark hair and eyes. Halflings have lifespans comparable with, but slightly longer, than humans. A halfling is typically considered an adult in their early twenties and some live into their 150s

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

    Dwarves

    Dwarves are a short race, as their name implies, standing between 4'3" and 4'9" on average. What Dwarves lack in height they make up for in bulk; they are, on average, about as heavy as humans. Like humans dwarves have a wide variety of skin, eye, and hair colors. Male dwarves are often bald and grow thick facial hair sometimes used to display social status. Dwarves age much like humans but over a longer period of time, remaining vigorous well past 150 years. Most dwarves live to see their bicentennial and a few live to be over 400.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Humans

    Humans are widespread, can be found in most regions and, in general, are fierce and disagreeable, which can sometimes lead certain other races to view them with contempt. They are renowned for their diversity and ambition, and although they lack specialization, they can excel in many areas.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Planetouched

    *Tieflings
    Tieflings are humans that are infused with the touch of the fiendish planes, most often through descent from fiends — demons, devils, evil deities, and others who have bred with humans. While some look like normal humans, most retain physical characteristics derived from their ancestor, with the most common such features being horns, non-prehensile tails, and pointed teeth. Other, more unusual characteristics include a sulfurous odor, cloven feet, or a general aura of discomfort they leave on others. Tiefling skin is usually human-like in color, though extending past normal human colors into reddish hues as well. Tiefling hair is often the same color as human hair as well, though dark blue, red, or purple are also common shades among the race.

    *Aasimar
    Aasimar, humans that have in their blood some good, otherworldly characteristics. They are often, but not always, descended from angels. Aasimar bear the mark of their celestial touch through many different physical features that often vary from individual to individual. Most commonly, aasimar are very similar to humans, like tieflings and other planetouched. Nearly all aasimar are uncommonly beautiful and still, and they are often significantly taller than humans as well. Most aasimar have pupil-less pale white, gray, or golden eyes and silver hair. Many aasimar also have a light covering of feathers on their shoulders.

    Name: Elvgloth Do'ate

    Race:Drow

    Age: 40 (maturity and appearance by human standards is early 20s)

    Deity: Mielikki

    Appearance: Like most of his race Elvgloth has obsidian coloured skin and silver coloured hair, his eyes however are a brilliant blue.

    Elvgolth generally wears loose fitting cloth clothes generally borwn and green, he also wears a Piwafwi the only thing from his drow heritage he has kept.

    He is usually armed with 2 unremarkable scimitars

    Calling:Druid/Ranger

    Background:
    Elvgloth was born to the tenth noble House of Menzoberranzan, (known as House Do'ate). He was the son of Malice, the Do'Ate Matron Mother and her consort, Do'Ate weaponmaster (and sometime Patron) Zafien.

    As the third son, drow culture demanded that Elvgloth be sacrificed to their goddess Lloth. However, the death of his older brother, and the first son, N'alfein, (incidentally, at the treacherous hand of the second son, Dinin) in the battle against House DeVir which raised House Do'Ate to the 9th ranked in the city during his birth, made him the second son and spared him.

    Being a male in the matriarchal drow society, Elvgloth Do'Ate suffered considerable abuse at the hands of his family, particularly his eldest sister Briza, in the first sixteen years of his life. His first ten years were spent as a page prince in the care of his sister Vierna; though she was far from kind, in his later years Elvgloth would recall some affection for her, stemming from the fact they shared paternity through Zafien.

    As a child, Elvgloth displayed amazing reflexes and coordination. Consequently, Zafien was able to persuade Malice that Elvgloth should become a warrior, instead of replacing Nalfein as the house wizard. Thus, at the age of sixteen, Elvgloth began his weapons training. He began learning the skills that would lead him to become one of the most formidable swordsmen in both the Underdark, and the Forgotten Realms.

    At twenty years of age, he went to the Academy, specifically Melee-Magthere, Menzoberranzan's warrior academy, where he excelled in his studies despite his resistance to the attempted brainwashing by the masters of the academy. When it was clear that there were none in Elvgloth's class who could beat him, the masters of the academy matched him against students a year above him. Elvgloth defeated that class easily. His time at the academy would have been perfect (by Drow standards) except for the graduation ceremony, where he disgraced himself by refusing to take part in an orgy, refusing the advances of two high priestesses, one of them his sister, Vierna, and damning Lolth (the patron god of the Drow).

    In a fit of rage Vierna ordered Elvgloth's execution at the hands of a drider. Elvgloth narrowly defeated the drider and fled for his life.

    When He reached the surface Elvgloth discovered that he would not be excepted by many of the people of the surface world due to the vile nature of the drow race, so he wandered the land searching for acceptance.

    He found acceptance with a druid named Malchorn. Malchorn taught him the ways of the forest and the creatures. Through Malchorn he was tollerated if not wholly liked in a small village in the forest of Gulthmere, and so finally Elvgloth knew a time of peace.



    I mentioned Piwafwi in my description of my appearance, a Piwafwi is an dark woven magical cloak. When the hood is drawn over the head, the wearer becomes almost invisible to normal sight, akin to an invisibility spell, and infravision, thanks to the heat-shielding properties of the cloak. The drow use these cloaks to stay out of sight in the Underdark. They are fashioned from spider silk and other unknown fibres and it is common for the wearer's house symbol to be included on the cloak.
