Magic Items I need to work on:

Amulet - Shield Spell

Cup - ???

Gloves - ???

Sandals - Expeditious Retreat

Belt - Armor Spell

Using spells she knows to imbue them, largely. I plan to limit their use to her, a deduction should make them noticeably cheaper in cost since they would be far less marketable. If I recall its -30% of the cost, her scepter can but it has a security spell on it.

I've begun writing the introductory post, which will also introduce the first plot arc along with giving some general exposition on Thay and their current political situation. I should hopefully have everything done...well playable...as your characters become completed.

You can be lesser drow Snake, it has no LA at all and you count still drow racially. You just lack SR mostly and the spell-alike abilities. FR campaign book and players guide to faerun also have details for non-LA drow (and drows of the underdark also maybe).

I'm working on it, magic items will be a challenge, that's all. She has little need for much coin on hand and the like. Mostly I need items her office and some things to make her life easier, one clerk and library of books. I don't need a horse with Phantom Steed as a spell. Oh do I need to take Riding to ride it?

You don't really need to use the Ride skill at all unless you plan to ride around in combat.  As for items, have you picked up a Headband of Intellect and a Cloak or Vest of Resistance yet?  Those would be fairly wise to invest in.

If you have the Craft Wondrous Items feat and access to the necessary spells, you can easily craft your own Headband of Intellect and Cloak or Vest of Resistance. ^^; Or are you saying you'll be doing just that after the game starts?

I would advice abusing craft wondrous item in start of the game :P. To get some items cheaper.

Anyways no intelligence item nor even int boosting spell from transmute :P. But my save DC's are sky high anyways so no problem in that sense. I use Resistance (Greater) to get +3 to all saves for 24 hours.

Not going to lie, I myself am planning to loot plenty of stat-boosters and other such common items off of any enemies we end up facing who have them. :P

Nephis Sepret
The Serpent's Tongue

Psion (Telepath) 5/Thrallherd 3

Appearance:
Black hair, black eyes, and dark caramel skin give her an exotic beauty.  The only hair she has is that which grows on her head, even her eyebrows having been removed in favor of slender tattoos.  Slender, with well defined muscles and

Personality:
Dark, secretive, and conniving.  She is every bit the snake hidden out of sight until you've already come too close to get away.  Sensual and decadent, she indulges in any pleasure that may cross her path, which gives her the appearance of someone less willful than she really is.  She believes herself a goddess and encourages her thralls to worship her as if she were.  The only thing that matters to her is her and her goals.  Despite this her outward demeanor is always pleasant, if overly friendly, toying with the feelings of those around her to encourage their lusts (preferably lust for her, but any form of lust is sufficient).

Biography:


Morality:
Nothing is more important than what she wants and she'll exploit anything along the way to get it.

Sexual Background/Preferences:
Bisexual.  Skilled seductress, and experienced paramour.  She runs a thinly-veiled brothel for the more elite of the city, utilizing her willing devotees as her own harem of skilled courtesans and escorts.

Ons & Offs:
No bathroom-play of course and some other weird stuff, but beyond that I'm pretty open...  If you're wondering just check with me first.  Any extra details can be found in my own ons/offs.  ;D

Quote:
"Shh, just relax and let me take the lead..."

A brothel in Thay? Wouldn't that be pointless the elite can bring in pleasure slaves of any kind. But you can bring in foreigners and other freemen types I suppose.

Nice pic there ;). I assume you make your thayan gladiator based on a unarmed combatant then? Use improved unarmed strike + weapon focus to qualify for it as human?

Anyways what comes to brothels; indeed there is bit redundancy in having one in Thay where anyone could just buy pleasure slave for life. But perhaps when we speak of brothel we speak of 'rent pleasure slaves' for non-elite thayans who cannot afford full price of skilled and beautiful pleasure slave. Or perhaps elite even if there is some exotic flavor he wants to try and may then offer 'buy' the slave off from Nephis....and thus cleverly she gets her 'thralls' spread to elite as her loyal spies.

Nephis herself probably acts as a major draw for the Thayan elite. ;) Plus, I'd imagine the more magically-gifted believers can do all sorts of interesting things with illusion and transmutation magic that the average pleasure slave would be legally prohibited from being able to do...

Well, given the backstory you posted, we know your character's been to at least one orgy during the course of his life.  Perhaps Nephis is a longtime friend and secret partner in your character's schemes?

It might also be a good idea to say that she and the Ankhemon siblings have something of a genuine friendship with one another, if we want to avoid inter-party conflict.  It could lend some rather interesting twists to their interactions beyond the usual scheming and jockeying for power common among ambitious mid-level individuals in Thay...

My character is a government servant, she puts Thay first, since power mongering among Red Wizards is political she has no issue with her brothers plans. And she would not mind seeing the Psion take over as Tharchion of the tharch they are in. If more stable than the one they have since that would be better for Thay.

I am looking for a spouse Nephis would be suitable, and there is no shame marrying a government official its stable work and respectable.

Put it this way though she is likely the one Thayan you don't have to worry about.  ;D
