Design Choices

  1. Why Half Elf? Save bonus vs Feat and Skill bonus of a human. +6 will (+1 base, +1 wis, +2 vs ench, +2 morale) vs charm person. It also seems

  1. Appearance, once described tactics follow that this character is a flanker or a monk. The trick is to make the character seem like a rogue so that PCs will use such tactics accordingly.

  2. Why Longspear? To receive charging Opponents and Too look less threatening. Use Ready Action to deal Double Damage and Reckless offense to raise your chances of making that shot count.

  3. Why Low AC. With this character's movement, if there was a huge Obstacle to be cleared (like a man high wall 6ft) or hazardous terrain, the character can easy jump over it.

NPC Support CR4


Appearance: Men and Women, with worn and tired feature in dark verdant loose fitting clothes. What catches your attention are the black wooden tower shields slung over their arm, w/c they carry effortlessly. Still, they move as if they are burdened with armor.
