Author Topic: Orc Warlords of Faerun (3.5 heavily houseruled DnD player interest check)  (Read 8224 times)

With the houserules being used for this game, the Fighter's class features have been rolled up into the Knight class.  Personally, I'd recommend Cleric/Warblade, myself.  Have the Cleric side be combat-focused, memorizing a bunch of buff spells and maybe using Divine Metamagic to persist Righteous Might each morning, and for the Warblade side, go into the Orc Warlord class from Races of Faerun to get a good-sized horde for yourself.  You can also take the Might Makes Right feat from that same book to add your Strength score to your Charisma for the purposes of Leadership, and if you're persisting Righteous Might each morning, that will give you quite a sizable Leadership score to work with.

That would be a very simple and solid build, and there's room in there for further customization if you want to add a personal touch to it. ^^

Ooh, I'll definitely take Might Makes Right at level 9 - it fits me perfectly.

You had a child with a Balor? That's pretty awesome.

Question: Do we apply the x10 or x15 multiplier for followers before or after we calculate how many higher-level followers we get from our first-level followers? I will get 120 first-level followers either way, but if we multiply first, I also get 12 second-level followers and the usual progression of higher levels from there. If we multiply after, I won't have any followers over level 1, at least not at first.

I should have a sheet figured out soon - should I go ahead and post it, or wait until we have more players?

Offline HopeFox

For balance purposes since we have the orc side well-represented and I like playing the underdog I think I'll make an untheric Archmage who is a Binder/Dread Necromancer. Gonna be one scary mofo.

Sounds very spooky!

You use all follower multipliers (including orc warlord) before you apply any clan perks. Also the multiplier applies to all levels of followers.

Publicly declaring both interest and intent on joining as a Mulhorand God Queen. I've done Pathfinder, but 3.5 is a wholly new and fresh experience for me; I'm sifting through the material and figuring out what ticks best for my preferences and favored theme. >.>

Offline eternaldarkness

Changed my mind again :D
This Untheric archmage will be a Binder/Warlock. I wanna keep it simple and easy.

Offline HopeFox

Sweet, we have people on all sides now! Hopefully I'll get some other champions to play with/against.

My boy (tentatively named Lugash the Conqueror) is coming together nicely, and should be ready for when it's time to start submitting characters. As long as there's land to seize and elves to enslave, he'll be happy!

Offline eternaldarkness

Man, this character and his cohort and order are taking forever to put together. The character himself, Darkcaller Orro, is an absolute monster between his Binder and Warlock abilities. He packs his own minions, and really ruins your day with his vast array of always-on powers.

I just need a good cohort idea now.


Offline Zaer DarkwailTopic starter

As Untheric you could have devils/demons as cohorts, as we use HD or CR as measurement than class/HD+LA formula (so could get succubus as 7th level cohort, adding class levels in to fill remaining CR).

Offline PaleEnchantress

AT first I didnt think there would be a place for me here, but looking at it now Mulhorandi God-King seems custom made for me, really..

Offline Summer

Leaning pretty heavily on a God Queen of Osiris with prominent inclinations towards skirmishing / targeted attacks towards those that warrant it.

Likely a Scout | Favored Soul into Consecrated Harrier, to give an idea. Those of the more militant path (specifically my character and cohort) are specialized to mete out retribution while the followers are tailored more towards the more peaceful, supportive pursuits.

Supposedly, at least; that's what I'm working on, now. :p

*Someone* has to try to put up a fight for all your rampaging. What good are the spoils of war if they are handed to you on a silver platter~?

I do find it rather enjoyable to fight against orcs from time to time. Whether keeping them away from the spoils or being served as a part of it, both constitute wins in my book.

But of course! Anything - and anyone - worth having is worth fighting for!

I'll just have to see what my little warband and I are capable of capturing. And of course, I have to share the spoils with my troops... such is the life of a warlord.

I imagined Mulhorandi religion/culture would be perfect fit for your usual char concepts ;). As you default are treated as living and breathing divinity (a aspect of a god) in country and revered properly as such. Albeit I do not think there is not perversion/sexuality deities (unless going for darker gods of Mulhorandi pantheon).

Offline eternaldarkness

My character is aaaaalmost done! His order will be called the Voidwalkers, and I think I'll take Zaer's advice and go for a succubus cohort.

Offline ererruz

I'm really tempted to try out a certain build but... my orc rapist would be at best bisexual (with most of his raping done off-screen since M/F is not my taste -- that is, unless I find someone else from the other side interested in M/M scenarios). I'll need to think on this, but if so, I'll take over another Warchief, possibly Hexer//Warblade (or Crusader maybe) or maybe Cleric//Thrallherd (need to check whether Leadership and Thrallherd work together).

M/M is pretty much what I do, though we have very different taste. Still Im going to have some very hunky templars under me who's wares you could pilliage, then when they come back home they can be sexually demeaned, humiliated, and punished again for failure.

Ill have to brain storm to make sure I fit in this game though. If Im ever personally going to be on the receiving end of conquest I better be a male character. My female characters are 100% femdom and not appreciative of even occasional role reversal. Of course my males are still 99% femdom, but brief role reversal can be enjoyed

Binder
Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level): Bluff, Concentration, Craft, Decipher Script, Diplomacy, Gather
Information, Intimidate, Knowledge (arcana), Knowledge (history), Knowledge (religion), Knowledge (the planes),
Profession, Sense Motive.

Soul Binding (Su)
Through special methods known only to binders, you can contact a vestige and make a pact with it. At 1st level, you can make a pact with one vestige at a time. At higher levels, you can form and maintain pacts with multiple vestiges simultaneously, as shown on Table 1–1.

You must complete the summoning and binding process with each separately, so each has its normal chance to influence you. You bear the physical sign of binding for each one. Your effective binder level, or EBL (your binder class level plus any soul binding bonuses you receive from prestige classes or other sources), determines the maximum level of vestige you can summon, as well as all other functions related to binding vestiges. This value equates to your binder class level, as given on Table 1–1, for this purpose. If the vestige you are trying to contact is of a higher level than your indicated maximum, you cannot summon it.

To contact a vestige, you must draw its unique seal visibly on a surface (generally the ground), making the image at least 5 feet across. Drawing a seal requires the ability to mark a surface and 1 minute of concentration, and the act provokes attacks of opportunity. A seal not used within 1 minute of its drawing loses all potency, and you must draw a new one to contact the vestige. A vestige might also have other requirements for contact, as noted in its entry (see The Vestiges, page 16).

Once the seal is drawn, you must perform a ritual requiring a full-round action to summon the corresponding vestige. During this time, you must touch the seal and call out to the vestige using both its name and its title. The ritual fails if you cannot be heard (for example, if you are within the area of a silence spell). Otherwise, a manifestation of the vestige appears in the seal’s space as soon as you fi nish the ritual. This image is not the actual vestige; it is merely a figment—an illusion that cannot harm or be harmed by any creature. Creatures that interact with the image or study it carefully automatically recognize it as illusory. The summoned image ignores everyone but you. If you fail to address it within 1 round, it disappears. The vestige speaks in whatever language you used to call it.

To make a pact with your summoned vestige, you must make a binding check (1d20 + your effective binder level + your Cha modifi er). This process requires 1 minute, but you can choose to make a rushed binding check as a full-round action at a –10 penalty. The DC for this check is provided in the description of each vestige (see pages 16–49). You must make your perilous pact alone; others cannot aid you in any way.

Whether the binding check succeeds or fails, you gain the powers granted by the vestige for 24 hours. During that time, you cannot rid yourself of the vestige unless you possess the Expel Vestige feat. Success or failure does, however, determine other aspects of the pact. If you fail the binding check, the vestige influences your personality and your actions, and you are said to have made a poor pact. (Specifically, the vestige’s presence changes your general demeanor, and it can force you to perform or refrain from certain actions.) If your binding check is successful, the vestige has no control over your actions and does not influence your personality. In this case, you are said to have made a good pact.

While under the influence of a vestige, you must adhere to its requirements to the best of your ability.

If you are conscious and free-willed, and you encounter a situation in which you cannot or will not refrain from a prohibited action or perform a required one, you take a –1 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, and checks until that vestige leaves you. If you are influenced by more than one vestige, you must act according to all their influences. If you fail to fulfill the requirements of more than one vestige or disobey a single vestige more than once, the penalties stack.

As long as you are bound to a vestige, you manifest a specific physical sign of its presence, as given in its entry. This sign is real, not an illusory or shapechanging effect, and someone using true seeing perceives it just as it is. You can hide a sign by mundane or magical means without penalty, or you can prevent it from appearing at all if you have the suppress sign ability.

Vestiges are bound to your soul by the pact. They cannot be targeted or expelled by any means except the Expel Vestige feat, nor can they be suppressed except by an antimagic field or similar effect.

The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against any supernatural power granted by a vestige is 10 + 1/2 your effective binder level + your Cha modifier.

Suppress Sign (Ex): At 2nd level and higher, when you make a good pact, you can choose not to exhibit the physical sign that normally accompanies a pact with a vestige. You can suppress or reveal the sign at will as a swift action. With a poor pact, you gain the powers of the vestige, but you cannot suppress its sign. You show it for the duration of the pact and are influenced by it as normal.

Bonus Feats: At 4th level, and again at 11th and 18th level, you gain a bonus feat of your choice from the following list: Armor Proficiency (medium), Armor Proficiency (heavy), Diligent, Investigator, Martial Weapon Proficiency, Negotiator, Persuasive, Shield Proficiency, and the feats presented in this chapter. Feats not described in this book can be found in the Player’s Handbook. These feats are in addition to those normally gained for attaining higher levels, but you must still meet any prerequisites for the bonus feats you choose.

Pact Augmentation (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, you can draw additional power from the vestiges you bind. As long as you are bound to at least one vestige, you can choose one ability from the following list. Each time you rebind a vestige, you also reselect your pact augmentation ability. As you attain higher levels, you can make additional selections from the list. You gain one additional ability at 5th, 10th, 16th, and 20th level (to a maximum of five selections at 20th level). You can choose a single ability multiple times, and their effects stack. For instance, at 16th level you could choose bonus hit points twice and damage reduction twice, gaining +10 hit points and damage reduction 2/—.

Pact Augmentation Abilities
+5 hit points
Energy resistance 5 (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic)
+1 insight bonus on saving throws
Damage reduction 1/—
+1 insight bonus to Armor Class
+1 insight bonus on attack rolls
+1 insight bonus on damage rolls
+2 insight bonus on initiative checks

Soul Guardian (Su): Beginning at 6th level, you have immunity to fear effects as long as you are bound to a vestige. As you attain higher binder levels, the vestige guards its time with you even more jealously, granting you protection from additional effects that would harm your soul and life energy for as long as the pact lasts.

At 9th level, you gain the slippery mind ability, which allows you to wriggle free from magical effects that would otherwise control or compel you. If you fail your saving throw against an enchantment spell or effect, you can attempt it again 1 round later at the same DC. You get only this one extra chance to succeed on your saving throw.

At 13th level, you gain immunity to energy drain and negative levels.

When you attain 19th level, your bound vestiges completely protect your mind, granting you immunity to all mind-affecting spells and abilities.

Warlock
Alignment: Any evil or any chaotic.
Hit Die: d6.
Class Skills
The warlock’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill)
are Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Disguise
(Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (arcana)
(Int), Knowledge (the planes) (Int), Knowledge (religion)
(Int), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int),
and Use Magic Device (Cha).
Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) × 4.
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier.

Invocations
A warlock does not prepare or cast spells
as other wielders of arcane magic do. Instead, he possesses a
repertoire of attacks, defenses, and abilities known as invocations that require him to focus the wild energy that suffuses his soul. A warlock can use any invocation he knows at will, with the following qualifications:

A warlock’s invocations are spell-like abilities; using an
invocation is therefore a standard action that provokes attacks
of opportunity. An invocation can be disrupted, just as a
spell can be ruined during casting. A warlock is entitled to a
Concentration check to successfully use an invocation if he
is hit by an attack while invoking, just as a spellcaster would
be. A warlock can choose to use an invocation defensively, by
making a successful Concentration check, to avoid provoking
attacks of opportunity. A warlock’s invocations are subject to
spell resistance unless an invocation’s description specifi cally
states otherwise. A warlock’s caster level with his invocations
is equal to his warlock level.

The save DC for an invocation (if it allows a save) is 10 +
equivalent spell level + the warlock’s Charisma modifi er.
Since spell-like abilities are not actually spells, a warlock
cannot benefit from the Spell Focus feat. He can, however,
benefit from the Ability Focus feat (see page 303 of the Monster
Manual), as well as from feats that emulate metamagic effects
for spell-like abilities, such as Quicken Spell-Like Ability
and Empower Spell-Like Ability (see pages 303 and 304 of
the Monster Manual).

The four grades of invocations, in order of their relative
power, are least, lesser, greater, and dark. A warlock begins
with knowledge of one invocation, which must be of the
lowest grade (least). As a warlock gains levels, he learns
new invocations, as summarized on Table 1–1 and described
below. A list of available invocations can be found following
this class description, and a complete description of each
invocation can be found in Chapter 4 of this book.

At any level when a warlock learns a new invocation,
he can also replace an invocation he already knows with
another invocation of the same or a lower grade. At 6th
level, a warlock can replace a least invocation he knows
with a different least invocation (in addition to learning a
new invocation, which could be either least or lesser). At
11th level, a warlock can replace a least or lesser invocation
he knows with another invocation of the same or a lower
grade (in addition to learning a new invocation, which
could be least, lesser, or greater). At 16th level, a warlock
can replace a least, lesser, or greater invocation he knows
with another invocation of the same or a lower grade (in
addition to learning a new invocation, which could be least,
lesser, greater, or dark).

Finally, unlike other spell-like abilities, invocations
are subject to arcane spell failure chance as described
under Weapon and Armor Profi ciency above. Warlocks
can qualify for some prestige classes usually intended for
spellcasters; see Warlocks and Prestige Classes, page 18,
for details.

Eldritch Blast (Sp): The first ability a warlock learns is
eldritch blast. A warlock attacks his foes with eldritch power,
using baleful magical energy to deal damage and sometimes
impart other debilitating effects.

An eldritch blast is a ray with a range of 60 feet. It is a ranged
touch attack that affects a single target, allowing no saving
throw. An eldritch blast deals 1d6 points of damage at 1st
level and increases in power as the warlock rises in level. An
eldritch blast is the equivalent of a spell whose level is equal
to one-half the warlock’s class level (round down), with a
minimum spell level of 1st and a maximum of 9th when a
warlock reaches 18th level or higher.

An eldritch blast is subject to spell resistance, although the
Spell Penetration feat and other effects that improve caster
level checks to overcome spell resistance also apply to eldritch
blast. An eldritch blast deals half damage to objects. Metamagic
feats cannot improve a warlock’s eldritch blast (because it is a
spell-like ability, not a spell). However, the feat Ability Focus
(eldritch blast) increases the DC for all saving throws (if any)
associated with a warlock’s eldritch blast by 2. See page 303 of
the Monster Manual.

Detect Magic (Sp): Beginning at 2nd level, a warlock can
use detect magic as the spell at will. His caster level equals his
class level.

Damage Reduction (Su): Fortified by the supernatural
power flowing in his body, a warlock becomes resistant to
physical attacks at 3rd level and above, gaining damage
reduction 1/cold iron. At 7th level and every four levels
thereafter, a warlock’s damage reduction improves as shown
on Table 1–1.

Deceive Item (Ex): At 4th level and higher, a warlock has
the ability to more easily commandeer magic items made
for the use of other characters. When making a Use Magic
Device check, a warlock can take 10 even if distracted or
threatened.

Fiendish Resilience (Su): Beginning at 8th level, a
warlock knows the trick of fiendish resilience. Once per day,
as a free action, he can enter a state that lasts for 2 minutes.
While in this state, the warlock gains fast healing 1.

At 13th level, a warlock’s fiendish resilience improves.
When in his fiendish resilience state, he gains fast healing 2
instead. At 18th level, a warlock’s fiendish resilience improves
to fast healing 5.

Energy Resistance (Fire, Acid) (Su): At 10th level and higher, a
warlock has resistance 5 against any two of the following
energy types: acid, cold, electricity, fire, and sonic. Once the
types are chosen, this energy resistance cannot be changed.
At 20th level, a warlock gains resistance 10 against the two
selected types of energy.

Imbue Item (Su): A warlock of 12th level or higher can
use his supernatural power to create magic items, even if he
does not know the spells required to make an item (although
he must know the appropriate item creation feat). He can
substitute a Use Magic Device check (DC 15 + spell level for
arcane spells or 25 + spell level for divine spells) in place of
a required spell he doesn’t know or can’t cast.

If the check succeeds, the warlock can create the item as if
he had cast the required spell. If it fails, he cannot complete
the item. He does not expend the XP or gp costs for making
the item; his progress is simply arrested. He cannot retry this
Use Magic Device check  that spell until he gains a new
level.

Least
Baleful Utterance
Least; 2nd
You speak a single syllable of the
Dark Speech (described in Book of Vile
Darkness), affecting an object or area
as if by a shatter spell. If a creature is
holding or wearing the target of the
spell and the target is destroyed, the
creature must make a Fortitude save or
be dazed for 1 round and deafened for
1 minute by your terrible word. This is
a sonic effect.

Shatter
Evocation [Sonic]
Level:   Brd 2, Chaos 2, Clr 2, Destruction 2, Sor/Wiz 2
Components:   V, S, M/DF
Casting Time:   1 standard action
Range:   Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Area or Target:   5-ft.-radius spread; or one solid object or one crystalline creature
Duration:   Instantaneous
Saving Throw:   Will negates (object); Will negates (object) or Fortitude half; see text
Spell Resistance:   Yes (object)
Shatter creates a loud, ringing noise that breaks brittle, nonmagical objects; sunders a single solid, nonmagical object; or damages a crystalline creature.
Used as an area attack, shatter destroys nonmagical objects of crystal, glass, ceramic, or porcelain. All such objects within a 5-foot radius of the point of origin are smashed into dozens of pieces by the spell. Objects weighing more than 1 pound per your level are not affected, but all other objects of the appropriate composition are shattered.
Alternatively, you can target shatter against a single solid object, regardless of composition, weighing up to 10 pounds per caster level. Targeted against a crystalline creature (of any weight), shatter deals 1d6 points of sonic damage per caster level (maximum 10d6), with a Fortitude save for half damage.
Arcane Material Component
A chip of mica.

Dark One's Own Luck
Least; 2nd
You are favored by the dark powers
if you have this invocation. You gain
a luck bonus equal to your Charisma
bonus (if any) on Fortitude saves,
Refl ex saves, or Will saves (your choice
each time you use this ability) for a
period of 24 hours. You can’t apply this
ability to two different save types at
the same time. This bonus can never
exceed your class level.

Beguiling Influence
Least; 2nd
You can invoke this ability to beguile
and bewitch your foes. You gain a +6
bonus on Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate
checks for a period of 24 hours.

See the Unseen
SEE THE UNSEEN
Least; 2nd
When you use this invocation, you
can activate great powers of vision,
allowing you to see invisible creatures
and objects (as see invisibility). You also
gain darkvision out to 60 feet for a
period of 24 hours.

Lesser
Charm
Lesser; 4th
You can beguile a creature within
60 feet. The creature must succeed on
a Will save or instantly come to regard
you as its comrade. This is a language dependent
ability. Other than these
differences, this ability works as the
charm monster spell. You can never have
more than one target charmed at a time
with this ability. If a second creature
is charmed, you lose your hold on the
first creature.

Eldritch Chain
Lesser; 4th; Blast Shape
This blast shape invocation allows
you to improve your eldritch blast by
turning it into an arc of energy that
“jumps” from the first target to others.
An eldritch chain can jump to one or
more secondary targets within 30 feet
of the first target, allowing you to make
additional ranged touch attacks and
deal damage to the secondary targets
if you hit.

You can “jump” the chain to one
secondary target per five caster levels,
so you can strike two additional targets
at 10th level, three additional targets at
15th level, and four additional targets
at 20th level. Each new target must be
within 30 feet of the previous one, and
you can’t target the same creature more
than once with the eldritch chain. If you
miss any target in the chain, the eldritch
chain attack ends there.

Each target struck after the first
takes half the damage dealt to the first
target. This reduction in damage to
secondary targets applies to any effect
that increases the damage of your
eldritch blast (such as vitriolic blast). You
must make a separate spell penetration
check for each target, if applicable.

Fell Flight
Lesser; 3rd
When you use this invocation, the
powers of darkness bear you aloft as
you sprout a streaming, winglike cape
of shadows. You can fly at a speed equal
to your land speed with good maneuverability
for 24 hours.

Voracious Dispelling
Lesser; 4th
You can use dispel magic as
the spell. Any creature with an
active spell effect dispelled by this
invocation takes 1 point of damage per
level of the spell effect (no save).

Greater
Chilling Tentacles
Greater; 5th
This invocation allows you to conjure
forth a field of soul-chilling black
tentacles that ooze from the ground,
groping for victims. This invocation
functions identically to the Evard’s
black tentacles spell, except that each
creature within the area of the invocation
takes 2d6 points of cold damage
each round. Creatures in the area take
this cold damage whether or not they
are grappled by the tentacles.
Black Tentacles
Black Tentacles
Conjuration (Creation)
Level:   Sor/Wiz 4
Components:   V, S, M
Casting Time:   1 standard action
Range:   Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Area:   20-ft.-radius spread
Duration:   1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw:   None
Spell Resistance:   No
This spell conjures a field of rubbery black tentacles, each 10 feet long. These waving members seem to spring forth from the earth, floor, or whatever surface is underfoot—including water. They grasp and entwine around creatures that enter the area, holding them fast and crushing them with great strength.
Every creature within the area of the spell must make a grapple check, opposed by the grapple check of the tentacles. Treat the tentacles attacking a particular target as a Large creature with a base attack bonus equal to your caster level and a Strength score of 19. Thus, its grapple check modifier is equal to your caster level +8. The tentacles are immune to all types of damage.

Once the tentacles grapple an opponent, they may make a grapple check each round on your turn to deal 1d6+4 points of bludgeoning damage. The tentacles continue to crush the opponent until the spell ends or the opponent escapes.
Any creature that enters the area of the spell is immediately attacked by the tentacles. Even creatures who aren’t grappling with the tentacles may move through the area at only half normal speed.
Material Component
A piece of tentacle from a giant octopus or a giant squid.

Nightmares Made Real
Greater; 5th
You can use nightmare terrain as the
spell (see page 111). In addition to the
normal effect, all creatures within the
area at the start of your turn take 1d6
points of damage if they do not succeed
on Will saves to disbelieve the effect.
If you use this invocation a second
time while a previous nightmares made
real is still present, the previous effect
ends.
Nightmare Terrain
NIGHTMARE TERRAIN
Illusion (Shadow)
Level: Assassin 3, bard 3, hexblade 3,
sorcerer/wizard 4
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Area: Five 10-ft. cubes + one 10-ft.
cube/level (S)
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if
interacted with)
Spell Resistance: No
You cloak your surroundings with phantasmagoric figures, creating a horrific dreamscape. You make any terrain look, sound, and smell like something out of a nightmare. Writhing vegetation, disembodied limbs, animated corpses, and smoking pits cover every surface. Miasmic vapors fill the air, along with various foul stenches. The nightmare terrain you create is mostly illusory, but the obstacles are partially real. Creatures within, entering, or viewing the area are entitled to Will saves to discern the illusion. Creatures that fail their saves become entangled.

Regardless of the outcome of the save, creatures within 5 feet have concealment, while those 10 feet or farther away have total concealment. Furthermore, as long as you are within the area of this spell, you can attempt Hide checks even while being observed. (Other creatures don't gain this benefit.)

Typical Vestiges (The Vestiges Orro binds unless he has reason to choose different ones)
Agares, Binding DC 22
Sign: You gain a wracking cough that spews dust and small
stones from your mouth. This coughing prevents you from
casting any spells that have verbal components. While bound
to Agares, you can resist the urge to cough for a number of
rounds equal your Constitution score. Thereafter, you cough
for a round and then can try to resist the urge again.

Influence: Agares’s loyalty in life and his anger at the
betrayal perpetrated by his lieutenants has become a hatred
of falsehood. When influenced by Agares, you speak forthrightly
and with confidence. You cannot use the Bluff skill,
and when asked a direct question, you must answer truthfully
and directly.

Granted Abilities: Agares gives you the power to exalt
yourself and your allies, to make the earth tremble beneath
your feet, to render foes weak, and to speak the truth to all
peoples.

Earth and Air Mastery: You gain a +1 bonus on attack rolls
and weapon damage rolls if both you and your foe are touching
the ground. Any airborne foe takes a –1 penalty on attack
rolls and weapon damage rolls against you.

Earthshaking Step: As a standard action, you can stomp on
the ground, causing every creature within 10 feet of you that
is either standing or climbing on a surface connected with
the ground to make a Refl ex save or fall prone. Once you have
used this ability, you cannot do so again for 5 rounds. You
and your summoned earth elemental (see below) are never
knocked prone by the use of this ability.

Elemental Companion: You can summon an earth elemental
to accompany you and fi ght for you. This creature obeys your
commands to the best of its ability. If the elemental is more
than 30 feet away from you at the end of your turn, it dissolves.
If you lose your elemental to dissolution or destruction, you
cannot summon it again for 1 hour.

The size of the earth elemental you can summon depends on
your effective binder level, as given on the following table.
Effective Binder Level Elemental Size
1st–10th Small
11th–14th Medium
15th–18th Large
19th or higher Huge
Fear Immunity: You have immunity to fear from both magical
and mundane sources.

True Speech: You can speak, understand, read, and write all
languages spoken by creatures within 30 feet of you. To use
an unfamiliar language, you must hear it spoken and see the
speaker. Once you have used it, you can continue to do so
for as long as your pact with Agares lasts. When speaking or
writing in a language with which you are not familiar, you
cannot lie.

Buer, Binding DC 20
Sign: Your feet turn into satyr’s hooves, giving you a curious
tip-toeing gait. These hooves prevent you from wearing
normal boots or shoes, but magic footwear reshapes to fit
you
.
Influence: Under Buer’s influence, you are plagued by
momentary memory lapses. For an instant, you might forget
even a piece of information as familiar as the name of a friend
or family member. Furthermore, since Buer abhors the needless
death of living creatures other than animals and vermin,
the first melee attack you make against such a foe must be
for nonlethal damage. In addition, Buer requires that you not
make any coup de grace attacks.

Granted Abilities: Buer grants you healing powers, the
ability to ignore toxins and ailments, and skills that help you
navigate the natural world.

Buer’s Knowledge: You gain a +4 bonus on Heal, Knowledge
(nature), and Survival checks, and you can make Knowledge
(nature) checks as if you were trained, even if you have no
ranks in that skill.

Buer’s Purity: You have immunity to disease and poison,
and making a pact with Buer removes any existing disease
and neutralizes any poison that afflicts you.

Delay Diseases and Poisons: Each ally within 30 feet of you
gains temporary immunity to poison and disease. Allies within
the area make saving throws against disease and poison
effects normally, but they do not incur the effects of failure
as long as they stay within 30 feet of you. An ally that leaves
the area immediately suffers all the effects
for any missed saves.

Fast Healing: You gain the fast healing 1, and the rate of healing increases with your effective binder level. You gain fast healing 2 at 10th level, fast healing 3 at 13th level, fast healing 4 at 16th level, and fast healing 5 at 19th level.

Healing Gift: As a standard action, you can cure 1 point of damage to yourself or another creature. As a fullround action, you can cure 1d8 points of damage +1 point per effective binder level (maximum 1d8+10 points). Either version requires that you touch the creature to be cured. If you use the fullround cure ability, you cannot use your healing gift again for 5 rounds. The
other version is usable at will. Both uses of the ability channel positive energy and deal a corresponding amount of damage to undead.

Track: You can track foes as though you possessed the Track feat.

Haures, Binding DC 25
Sign: While you are bound to Haures, your palms are where the backs of your hands should be, just as they are on a rakshasa. If you flip over your hands so that the backs are up, your thumbs end up on the wrong sides of your hands. This rearrangement has no effect on your Dexterity, spellcasting, ability to wield objects, or use of skills.

Influence: When influenced by Haures, you become an eccentric, often speaking to yourself and to imaginary friends. In addition,

Haures requires that if you encounter and disbelieve an illusion not of your own making, you must not voluntarily enter its area.

Granted Abilities: Haures shields your mind with his madness, allows you to move like a ghost, gives you the power to fool the senses, and grants you the ability to kill others with their deepest fears.

Inaccessible Mind: You are protected from any effort to
detect, influence, or read your emotions or thoughts, and you
have immunity to any mind-affecting spells and abilities, as
if you were protected by a mind blank spell. You can suppress
or activate this ability as a standard action.

Incorporeal Movement: When moving, you become nearly
incorporeal and can ignore the effects of difficult terrain. You
can even move through an enemy’s space, but not through
walls or other solid barriers. Furthermore, any attacks of opportunity directed at you while you move have a 50% miss
chance. You can suppress or activate this ability as a standard
action.

Major Image: You can create an illusion at will, as though
you had cast major image (caster level equals your effective
binder level). A creature can attempt a Will save to realize the
illusion is false. You can never create more than one major
image at a time, and you can dismiss or renew the effect as a
standard action. Once you have used this ability, you cannot
do so again for 5 rounds.

Phantasmal Killer: This ability functions like the phantasmal
killer spell except for the range and save DCs (the ability still
requires a Will save, and possibly a Fortitude save) to resist.
You can target any single creature within 10 feet per binder
level you possess. Once youh ave used this ability, you cannot
do so again for 5 rounds.
Phantasmal Killer
Phantasmal Killer
Illusion (Phantasm) [Fear, Mind-Affecting]
Level:   Sor/Wiz 4
Components:   V, S
Casting Time:   1 standard action
Range:   Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target:   One living creature
Duration:   Instantaneous
Saving Throw:   Will disbelief (if interacted with), then Fortitude partial; see text
Spell Resistance:   Yes
You create a phantasmal image of the most fearsome creature imaginable to the subject simply by forming the fears of the subject’s subconscious mind into something that its conscious mind can visualize: this most horrible beast. Only the spell’s subject can see the phantasmal killer. You see only a vague shape. The target first gets a Will save to recognize the image as unreal. If that save fails, the phantasm touches the subject, and the subject must succeed on a Fortitude save or die from fear. Even if the Fortitude save is successful, the subject takes 3d6 points of damage.

If the subject of a phantasmal killer attack succeeds in disbelieving and is wearing a helm of telepathy, the beast can be turned upon you. You must then disbelieve it or become subject to its deadly fear attack.

Okay, edited first post to include info on Unther/Mulhorandi (their history, why their different one another) and also info how income works.

  Say, Zaer.  What's your read on 3.5 Grey Orc.  Do i need to take a level adjustment? 

Offline PaleEnchantress

Zaer has mentioned inspiration from Warcraft and a few other things outside of Faerun, I was wondering if we are still sticking to the lore though? If we aren't really taking any liberties with the setting than God King/Queen of Set is totally the glove that fits.

With a slight bend Ishtar, though an Untheric deity would work rather well for a Mulhorandi god King/Quen.


If there has been noncannon imports already then I really know some Hellenistic deities that would fit marvelously. Hecate is particular, but also Cybelee, Dionysus, and Thanatos. If you know that in ancient times Thanatos was anything but what we think of him now. He was a beautiful teen age boy with long pale blond hair, much more like what we imagine angels to look like. I don't want to push for any of these though if were really just sticking to lore.

As far as set goes I know a way I'll have both a beautiful head of hair and have that very hairstyle seen closer to the divine than any shaved head ever will. . .

I say gray orcs do not have +1 LA. Also we do not differ from canon (much at least, only really is that I placed arcane focus on Unther kingdom than divine albeit Mulhorandi and Unther in canon are very similar expect Untherites are more expansionists/aggressive, I placed them as magocracy vs more theocratic Mulhorandi). What comes to that hair; if your medusa priestess of Set then go ahead :). But otherwise all hair must be gone.

Ugh. Okay, I need to find a new pic I like then. Not a fan of the bald look, just doesn't appeal to me, but I'll make it work

Offline HopeFox

On the subject of being the victim of the brutality, if the tides of war turn against Lugash, I'm more than happy for him to be abused by whichever faction, race and gender happen to take possession of him. Hopefully with the chance to escape and wreak bloody vengeance, naturally, but I trust you guys to make such an experience fun.

Offline Zaer DarkwailTopic starter

Well, there are badass bald chars/pics around in net (I am pretty sure of that). But you can be in Unther be bit more rebellious sort arcanist who has hair (and has no noble rank but is influential). Just do not expect no respect because longer hair = your slave in Unther/Mulhorandi culture.
