    General Notes
    • I have never and will never claim to build min-maxed, optimized characters. These are characters that have been designed for personal enjoyment, efficacy, and roleplaying.
    • I absolutely welcome feedback and criticism, but please refer to #1—some suggestions I am unwilling to compromise on due to flavor concerns.
    • This compendium is a work in progress and more for my own reference on the evolution of my characters and sharing in the public domain than it is as a guide for new players or otherwise.
    • Some items in the list are projected and not completed.
    • In all cases, item swaps are configured to provide maximum SP and actions (boosts, turn undead, bard song, etc) per shrine and then swapped out as these are depleted.
    • Each character has at least one (or two, if TWF) bound minimum level disruptor/smiter/banisher/metalline+flametouched iron/large guild augment signature weapon, among other things. They do not exclusively use their signature weapon in situations where it may be to their detriment (i.e. non-bludgeoning weapons vs. skeletons).
    • Some of items, particularly guild augment helms, have fanciful names made up for them to liven things up. Their list of enchantments should be explicit that they're crafted items and not hitherto undiscovered items except by me.

    __________________________________________________
    Bonus Type Parlance
    Most item descriptions will be transcribed to either reflect exactly how the item displays in-game or corrected for accuracy. Some shorthand prefixes to denote modifier types include:
    [example: enh-Jump+5 is a +5 enhancement bonus type to the Jump skill]

    enh (enhancement), exc (exceptional), com (competence), ins (insightful), inh (inherent)
    luc (luck), pro (profane), sac (sacred), mor (morale), pri (primal), ele (elemental), psi (psionic)
    shi (shield), def (deflection)
    equ (equipment spell power), imp (implement spell power),
    cla (class), fea (feat), des (destiny), rac (racial)
    yug (yugoloth), unt (untyped/unique), art (artifact), ? (unknown)

    Default Character A

    Adamance
    “Elemental conduit”
    male warforged
    air savant-20
    unyielding sentinel






    Biographies
    Code:
    "I am the wind that never falls."
    
    Adamance notes how your gaze travels immediately to the faintly seared expanse of his forehead. Whatever ghulra he once had, he says, he had long since abraded it from his proud visage.
    
    A deep boreal confidence issues from his eyes. The dusty striation on his body culminates in one monumental fist that swings pendulously from his body.
    
    "Your balance will improve," his creaking voice will often unexpectedly note, "by placing your foot here." With a surprisingly gentle hand, he adjusts your posture.
    
    You find nothing surprising nor unexpected in his sheer ferocity in battle. For a creature made of plasma, you harbor no doubts about his mettle.
    
    When you inquire about his origins, his forthright nature does not confuse you so much as his answers. You've never heard of "The Enlightened" of Loksmira nor the "Ministers of the Timeglass." His description of the god "Wae Dos" also rings foreign.
    
    In spite of his mystery, you're glad you're on the same side.

    Tactics
    Code:
    Currently a pure sorcerer, Adamance has the rather predictable tactics one might expect of a pure class character.
    
    He mostly distinguishes himself in the amount of physical damage he can withstand with moderate PRR, ample damage reduction, active blocking, and maneuverability (the indispensable Wind Dance ability and Flyby Attack when possible).

    Code:
    Power to the time-savers; I plan on making Adamance take advantage of some Shiradi (cheap, but not shameful) tricks from MrMechMan's Mechadi Champion.
    
    I must note, however, that since I have never intended to TR any of my characters more than four times (I find the TR grind nauseating considering how many characters I have), the principals of dumping spell penetration and going for direct damage has been the case for almost all my arcane builds (exception: Greygale).

    Default Character B

    Bearspirit from the Crescent
    “Redcapped Circle elder”
    male dwarf, past life barbarian
    ranger-12 druid-7 rogue-1
    unyielding sentinel, axes


    Biographies
    Code:
    Clink. Clink. Clink. Bearspirit has a habit of striking his axe to his shield.
    
    You find it a sweet respite from his chilling battle roar, or even more gruesome methods of divining the future. The first time you saw him carve one of your enemy's spines out of their flesh, you had no idea how much more terrifying the ritual would become. According to Bearspirit, the Redcapped Circle has long practiced the art of pulling apart an enemy's spine over a pan (or shield, in his case) of snow.
    
    You have your doubts that Bearspirit can augur the future in the spine's blood dripping onto the snow, but you have seen him endured hardship and injury that would fell most men. When times are lean, Bearspirit will always find a sweet root to calm your stomachs. Parched deserts fail to hide precious stores of water in spinefruits from him.
    
    His will to survive seems limitless, and for the time being, you are included in his inner circle. How long that will last, you do not know.

    Discussion
    Code:
    Without being a Defender prestige as of U17, the highest PRR attainable is 
    15 Sheltering (ML25 Bulwark of the Storm's Fist)
    15 (being in Sentinel with Legender Shield Mastery rank3: both shield mastery feats required)
    30 Sentinel innate T4 in Unbreakable stance 
    20 twisting in T2 Improved Combat Expertise (combat expertise active)
    total=80. 
    Note that this setup has combat expertise active which increases spell cooldowns by 300%, so having the extra twist of Improved Combat Expertise is not viable for most types of SP-self healing.

    Default Character C

    Caringarhy ninth of her name
    “Warden of the Gate”
    female human, past life barbarian
    stalwart defender-20
    unyielding sentinel, bastard swords


    Biographies
    Code:
    "Ninth of my name," Caringarhy repeats bitterly.
    
    The Marked Wardens took her in as a small child, an orphan languishing on the streets of Laptra Ilias.
    
    The flinty resolve in Caringarhy's gaze earns your admiration. She never shirks from unpleasant duties on the field. You've no wonder why her expertly-gauntleted fist clenches when she hears the term 'Painted Sword.'
    
    You have never heard of the heat-scorched peninsula of Uaniraj, nor heard of the Marked Wardens pledged to the Sunbrides. Caringarhy explicitly states that she was Marked against her own will, and yet she paints the elaborate sigil on her face with fresh indigo every morning.
    
    Caringarhy exhibits a particular dislike for nobles and any sickles--in Uaniraj, the aristocracy is immensely powerful. They often wield ceremonial sickles and hold the number nine sacred.

    Default Character D

    Dzhetdzhadin pur'Eyyam
    “Thareshbahari Vigilant”
    male human, past life bard
    defender of siberys-18 rogue-1 fighter-1
    unyielding sentinel, khopeshes


    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life
    "More assassins know my name than friends," says Dzhetdzhadin with a crooked half-smile. 'Jitjiadeen,' 'The Green Knight,' and 'Vashinand the Rein-Holder' inspired the Triarchs, the Redcapped Circle, the Ministers of the Timeglass, and even the peaceful Doronayri to send their most deadly agents to quell the many-faced man.
    
    None have succeeded. To Dzhetdzhadin, seeing knives around every corner only proves that he has found the correct path--'the road worth seeking,' as he puts it. He has sacrificed all: his names, his homes, and his honor in the pursuit of a singular goal.
    
    What that is, he will not tell you.
    
    Past Life (bard)
    "I'll write a song about you," Dzhetdzhadin says wryly. "'The Horizon Knight without his Mount.'"
    
    Garnered from what sardonic bits of conversation you exchange, you gather that Dzhetdzhadin hails from the desert land of Thareshbahar in an extraplanar world much like Xen'drik.
    
    The nomadic pur'Eyyam clan (from whom he claims to descend) has never boasted of a Singer in its lineage, he tells you, let alone one of the mysterious cabal known as the Voice of Dzhishad. 
    
    Though the theocratic despots of Dzhetdzhadin's home city of Rashammil impose strict embargos on Southern trade and even harsher measures on unsanctioned Southern alliances, mystics of the Voice are allowed unfettered access to the Waterscorned empires.
    
    On but one of his many perilous forays-which he pointedly avoids detailing-the old Singer found himself shunted into our own Prime Material.
    
    By his tales, Dzhetdzhadin appears to break all known rules of the distant desert plane, but whether his confidences are fact or fable, you do not know.

    "..." you ask it a question, and it merely stares beyond you.
    
    Dusky rose flesh, violet thorns, and surprisingly moist crimson filaments where hair should hang frame a face not quite plant and not quite human.
    
    It's not an orc at all--it's far more exotic, far more dangerous, and altogether more unnerving than any creature you've ever seen.
    
    A broken thorn on the right side of its face intersects a mighty scar wherein pitted fibers cluster.
    
    Your mind clouds for a moment as, suddenly, you're not yourself. You find yourself smelling the slow simmer of wetland profusion and jungle humidity. Ancient trees stand sentinel everywhere in sight--something fells them!--and from the tiniest fungal speck to the most tender sapling... you hear their sibilant wrath.
    
    "Enahy," a name, a concept, a sentient and profoundly dreadful creature standing before you. Somehow you know its name is not one it chose for itself.

    Fleshweaver the Lord Heresiarch

    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life
    "Your skin dances, stranger," Fleshweaver intones in a chilling voice.
    
    You once thought you had never encountered such a wholly unsavory creature in your life. When attempting light conversation, you inadvertantly shuddered as cascades of maggots spilled from his mask.
    
    The hollow, oracular manner with which he responded so infrequently to your questions made your stomach drop to your feet.
    
    Over time, you have found Fleshweaver only suffers his preternatural maladies after healing others, something he does routinely. In times of peace and stillness, the few exposed portions of his skin appear hale. He stops reeking of rot and his breathing seems less labored.
    
    Fleshweaver always tends to your wounds with clipped comments. "Twice a day, treat your armor chafe with this unguent," he will say in passing. In gratitude, you realize the storied man pursues a purpose quite unlike what you guessed.

    Discussion
    Code:
    I have never found pale masters quite as hearty as warforged arcanes (perhaps because I favor platinum heals of scrolls/wands/potions and burst heals over negative energy-based heals over time), but it’s common knowledge that they can be extremely durable with the correct gear and play style.
    
    In addition to the lack of synergy between my play style and pale master self-sufficiency, I also don’t seem to have as much fun with their signature ability: instakill. 
    Quests seem to go faster when I’m nuking with AoEs on a sorcerer or evocation archmage, and Greygale’s instakill outstrips Fleshweaver’s against any mobs with minds, which are most mobs.
    
    This is what drew me to a more gish-like caster melee; Fleshweaver retains most of the power of a pure pale master but leverages the great critical profile of kukris with the ninja's centered kukri fighting with greater two weapon fighting and excellent damage mitigation.
    
    Splashing a monk level grants a feat, situational stances, unarmed fighting (which synergizes well with flanking attacks and undead forms), the ability to train key abilities such as Balance, Hide, and Move Silently at full class ranks, and access to tier1 ninja enhancements.
    
    Rogue splash gives more initial skill points ([8xInt mod]x4), trapsmithing, UMD, and access to tier1 assassin enhancements.
    
    I've also considered splashing artificer but only if I had the ability to assemble an epic Doublecross Bow for him, which seems doubtful (the bugged difficulty drop rate of the materials requires too much grind).
    
    More tangibly, the monk levels allow Fleshweaver to melee reliably even on epic elite, which I can demonstrate a bit in his breakdown. The choice to take the monk after the seventh wizard level allows Fleshweaver to acquire level 4 spells (particularly Wall of Fire) promptly.
    
    On summoning
    I initially wanted to fit Augment Summoning but cannot fit it. Summoning is a joke in DDO, but that said, it's also very fun sometimes. I prefer pale master summoning over druid summoning for several reason.
    
    The mechanics of pale master summons--ability to have two up at a time, either a skeleton summon and an epic lich/create undead, the ability to passively area heal over time them all, and the availability of two caster summons (lich, skeleton mage)--makes pale masters the ideal summoner in my opinion. 
    
    Druids naturally get a lot of perks to summoning, including unique spells (Pack Presence, Harrowing Pack, Pack Aptitude, and spontaneous summon spells), but a wolf companion and dryad (sometimes air or earth elemental for CC when applicable) still seem too weak for use in most cases. The wolf companion can be made rather survivable but, unlike, the artificer defender, I can’t slap a Docent of Defiance on it and expect it to really survive when mobbed. I also really enjoy the utility of being able to throw up either an archer, melee, or mage for a negligible hp and sp cost that I will torc or negative energy aura back. The blackbone summons are notable for their immunity to both cold and fire, where the slightly higher CR frostmarrow summons are often obliterated by enemy AoE fire damage.
    
    Destinies
    Magister has quite a few abilities that I really enjoy that are rather difficult to twist in, including Grand Summoner (which is unfortunately currently broken, as far I know), Nullmagic Strike (extremely undervalued ability that allows you to spam your necrotic SLAs to strip deathward and all sorts of nasty enemy buffs), and Necromancy Augmentation (Passive Bonus: Necromancy spells have [5/10/15]% chance to reduce target Fortitude saves by 10 for [10/20/30] seconds). 
    
    Alternative active destinies are Shadowdancer for yet more instakill abilities (Consume, which is again currently broken) and stealth, or Primal Avatar for more minion buffs and some interesting TWF options. Of course Draconic Incarnation is an extremely strong choice for any caster, but after twisting in Energy Burst, I’ve found that Fleshweaver’s play style is better complemented by Magister or the TWF destinies. Besides; Adamance, Merging, and even Greygale will almost always nuke better than Fleshweaver.
    Tactics
    Code:
    I would not discount the utility of being able to flank a mob, slam it with a few SLAs, hit it with improved paralyzing/deception/Clever Strike from eMidnight Greetings and shaken/shattermantle with a crafted kukri, and then Fingering it without heighten on epic elite. Assassin mentality can work wonders and I urge everyone to try it.
    
    One could also wait for Demonic Curse/Roar guards to proc but that is dangerous on EE.
    
    eMidnight Greetings' Clever Strike (int mod=enhancement modifier) and improved paralyzing/disintegration/improved deception make it quite a nice CC+mild DPS option on <orange names, helpless foes, and when one is low on SP.

    Andoris' Shadovar monk has some good info, but Fleshweaver was not inspired by this build nor does he resemble Andoris' original intentions with his build. 
    
    Fleshweaver always intended to use kukris, whereas Andoris picked up the idea at the suggestion of Voodoogrooves. The Shadovar monk is also deep monk/fighter splash with no trapsmithing, whereas Fleshweaver is more of a caster and less of a melee.

    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life"Whom will you believe--a mindwalker, or yourself?" Suddenly, you forget what you asked Greygale. Her eyes gleam as she strides past you. As always, the iridescent ghost of a dream glimmers just behind her.
    
    You also have trouble remembering what a "mindwalker" is. It seems vaguely familiar, like Greygale's face. You feel lost for a moment, as if you have dropped something in the dark, and reaching for it, find it gone.
    
    The last thing you do remember is asking Greygale how she got her name. She touched the grey Nightingale embroidered on her hood, sitting with its wings folded in stately repose. When she caught your gaze, you saw she let slip something she wished remained hidden. After that there is a void in your memory.
    
    Greygale has performed feats of incalculable power with her mind--hurling molten rock, mesmerizing foes and turning them on one another, and making them perish in their own worst nightmares. You never thought she would use her powers on you.
    
    When you turn to where Greygale strode, she is nowhere to be seen.

    Enhancements

    Discussion
    Code:
    What Greygale lacks in min-maxed elemental spell power and quickened self-healing abilities, she far exceeds in instakill and crowd control abilities.
    
    Since she banks a lot on phantasmal killer-susceptible mobs, when she encounters mindless/immune monsters, the extra SP padding from the Mental Toughness line is very useful. I currently see no better alternatives for the feats (a Great Intelligence feat would put her at an odd intelligence bracket, and the only other heroic feat I would consider is a second Toughness).
    
    After the enhancement alpha, I'm now crafting a 15/5 halfling wizard/rogue build.
    
    The split would acquire evasion, full umd/traps, +1 threat/multiplier with dagger crits, dex hit/damage with daggers, 6d6 sneak attack dice, 1% uncanny dodge + clicky, assassinate (DC=15+int modifier), full illusion archmage SLA line, and lvl8 spells.
    
    With knife specialization granting +1 critical threat/multiplier, Greygale could actually reach a 13-20x4 critical profile with Sky Pirate Daggers and IC: pierce. More realistically, 15-20x3 dagger profile would be played, and that's still a very respectable critical profile.
    Tactics
    Code:
    SLAs
    "Mindwalkers" are intended to be played like stealthy psions. Greygale makes great use of the invisibility SLA at 1 SP--often, she barely peeps around corners to PK enemies. Their friends only notice if they make a save and they usually fail it.
    
    She doesn't need to stand in front of a door to open it; she can stand at a rather extreme diagonal and still open it. This allows Greygale to shroud herself in invisibility again and assess the room. Generally this means that she will hypnotize (SLA) the biggest clump, charm them if they look threatening, and PK all the stragglers. It's highly effective.
    
    The displacement SLA is pivotal for a fleshy UMD-healing arcane, and the blur SLA is great for maintaining constant party blur with great efficiency. She can't really get hit--no quickened SP-healing means that even in any epic difficulty, she cannot rely on guards or hope to sustain any hits. Thus, torc and other guards are not as useful.
    
    Meleeing
    Many of my party members find it funny when Greygale pulls out her daggers to melee helpless or distracted monsters, but they are extremely useful for debuffing powerful enemies and dispatching weaker ones that shouldn't require SP.
    
    Notable daggers are the three new, nice choices from MotU: Sacrificial Dagger, Blade of the High Priestess, and Agony, the knife in the dark. The first two have some very useful debuffs (former: virulent poison ______, life stealing and latter: improved paralyzing, wisdom draining, wounding) and all have some solid DPS modifiers (respectively: poison burst, negative energy spike; slay living; entropic, disintegration, hemorrhaging/phlebotimizing if upgraded).
    
    In various pairs as necessary, she can do things like quickly stat debuff, improved paralyze, improve deception, apply 'shaken,' and level drain enemies to set up a PK. I can't count the amount of quests where Greygale has stealthed almost the entirety of the mission and then DoTs + melees the boss into submission with SP to spare.
    
    With a standing Illusion DC of 54 and Enchantment 44, she can "hypnolock" almost all foes--shut them down with Hypnotism SLA--and PK just before hypnotism comes off cooldown. If they save, she can hypnolock them again, debuff them, and by that time, the PK SLA is off cooldown again.

    "..." the creature looks you straight in the eyes, not moving, nor breathing.
    
    At first, you are aghast at the rigidity of its arm. The release of its implacable "hand," if one could call a curling collection of whips with the softness and heft of marble a hand, allows you to breath easier.
    
    You realize that neither you nor the creature are paused in your current adventure. You are far, far from your original destination. Roiling clouds of unusually bright white mist past trees of enduring height. They soar into the blinding pearl sky, horned growths studding their lengths.
    
    Looking down, you see the creature next to you, its entire body submerged in water at a furious boil. Steam boils up from the surface in dancing vapor columns.
    
    You sense that you are ascending. Suddenly you find yourself at the peak of an immense mountain enrobed at its base in the clouds, and the creature stands beside you. 
    
    You can see leagues into the distance, islands of mountain peaks dotting the landscape all around. At the edge of the forest... fire.
    
    The creature holds your gaze, swaying imperceptibly in the wind. The forest is gone. You are back on your adventure.

    "A Sunbride that does not fear water need not fear death," says Ilassu.
    
    Past Life: Cleric
    "Cestus, flask, mushroom powder and saffron..." you hear Ilassu recite to herself. 
    
    Something sweet and sad in the dreamy eyes of this homely old woman brings a tightness to your chest. Spiderwebs of age line her face but her sagacity shines with a palpable aura.
    
    Any inclinations to regard her as den mother fade in the face of the fearful deference with which strangers treat her, a relic she says comes from her time known as the 'Serpent of Steam.' 'She Who Defied.' 'The last Sun Bride.'
    
    After decades of service in the House of Hantsuraj, the aged priestess has abandoned the path of indoctrination and assumed the role of freedom fighter. Only then did she seek the Glass Monastery.
     
    The mysterious Ministers of the Timeglass, or Enur-tiin, have gifted her with the highest honor of the Thareshbahari desert: the name "Yr."
    
    Ilassu will not translate the venerated title for you, but you gather that it was bestowed for some act of tribal mediation. Golden canaries dangle from each or her locks of saffron hair.

    Default Character J

    Jsholisvirad
    “Steel Oathkeeper”
    male warforged
    angel of vengeance-20
    unyielding sentinel, greatswords




    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life
    Past life (favored soul)
    "An oath made is an oath kept," Jsholisvirad says to no one in particular.
    
    Whatever ghulra he has, it certainly doesn't appear to worship the Lord of Blades.
    
    Jsholisvirad strikes you as strangely emotional for a warforged. You find yourself empathizing with both his confidence and, surprisingly, deep and abiding sadness.
    
    When he speaks, his tone resonates with a ringing timbre of sorrow. His vocabulary and prosody strike you as archaic.
    
    On his back you see two deep grooves with golden feathers peeking out.
    
    Your head feels light as visions of burnished metal and glittering ferrous material flicker, all set to the backdrop of Jsholisvirad's magma-weeping eyes.

    Discussion
    Code:
    I could never have imagined how boring it is to be a pure Lord of Blades favored soul until I did completed one and played it for a year. I'm glad I did, however, as it sated a curiosity in me that had to be explored. Now I know better.
    
    Passive DR15/adamantine is certainly not negligible, but quite a few epic items replicate similar DR levels and one--ML25 Ring of the Djinn--actually provides a better DR type (law).
    
    Bladesworn Transformation still renders one unable to cast spells or receive positive energy--laughably useless and moreover suicidal.
    
    The shield spell can be effortlesslty UMDed and has no need to be spammed, and is thus hardly worth the purchase cost.
    
    Worst, warforged positive energy penalties douse any glimmer of synergy one might see from being a pure Lord of Blades adherent.
    
    Conversely, the Juggernaut build exhibits minmaxing genius and doesn't require Jsholisvirad to give up his race or signature weapon.

    Kayshmel sul Gati
    “Minister of the Timeglass”
    female half-elf, past life monk
    shintao monk-20
    grandmaster of flowers, handwraps


    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life:
    Kayshmel stands resolutely over the supine form of an enemy. "Death is the ultimate gift of time."
    
    Past life (monk)
    "None can stop the flow of the Timeglass," Kayshmel explains with conviction.
    
    The elaborately-pinned hair and serene expression of this miniscule woman lend her an otherworldly aura.
    
    "sul Gati," she states, is not her given name; rather, the Redcapped Circles on high agreed to cast her from their land forever after she renounced their practices by snapping her alder staff upon their Speaking Stump. 
    
    The Circle formed an unprecedented alliance with the waterscorned empires of Thareshbahar. In protest, Kayshmel used dark powers hitherto forbidden to threaten the Elders of yew, oak, and elm staves with death for betraying the timeless union of Cyrdhun and Helmjimdrad in the west.
    
    Before her exile, the Redcapped Elders tied her before the sacred hearth of the Grotto of the Horned Moon and systematically defiled her, beating her with their staves. The wounds left her barren.

    Symerith's Sithali provided a good foundation for Kayshmel's build when I discovered that melees without both a ranged option and even the smallest supplement to their positive spell power and SP pool quickly fall behind in epic elites.

    Default Character L

    Lannsyr Saradha
    “Wild merger”
    male human, past life paladin
    angel of vengeance-20
    exalted angel, longswords


    Biographies
    Code:
    "Blades find balance," Lannsyr whispers. He crosses one blade black, one blade white.
    
    This lithe young man does not walk; he prowls with feline caution. Nor does he glance; he observes intently, every line of his darkly handsome face converging on piercing liquid eyes. "Grey and lilac" are their colors, he says, "the same as House Saradha."
    
    Something about the set of his mouth and tightness of his gestures suggests a measure of control--and guardedness--which piques your curiosity.
    
    You note how his voice has only recently attained the baritones of manhood when cornering him in conversation. He confesses to have traveled from the distant empire of Kisha south of the Jiratchiqarim mountains. 
    
    He speaks with quiet pride about the Hexagon Throne and the Counter's Cult, but you're certain you've not once heard of such an empire or mountain range.
    
    The knightly valor of this man may be spotless, but his origins are dubious. Still, you'll have to trust the warding swings of his left-handed sword technique.
    
    Lannsyr struggles with swordplay the way some men stumble over their letters. He was clumsy with the rapier amd slightly less clumsy with longsword, and his valor is greatly diminished to those around him.

    Default Character M

    Merging device
    “Weft of the Loom”
    female warforged, past life wizard
    evoconjurer archmage-20
    magister


    Biographies
    Code:
    "Consider oneness," Merging says in a flatly effeminate voice. 
    
    Gazing upon the pearlescent ash livewood that animates the visage of this creature fills you with a profound unease. 
    
    You realize this trepidation stems from the construct's uncanny juxtaposition of extreme cleverness and utter lack of humanity.
    
    The creature explains that the Enlightened of the secret Lan Baandir academy forged merging devices for myriad uses, including education, the honing of the Mergers' supernatural abilities, and certain... courtesan duties nobles across the Waterscorned empires value highly.
    
    You've no idea whom the Enlightened nor Mergers are and you have never heard Lan Baandir and the Waterscorned Empires, but something about its manner-of-fact monotone leaves you little doubt as to the authenticity of its claims. 
    
    All you're certain of is that this device is likely very, very dangerous.

    Default Character N

    Novitiate of Thrall Cant
    “Thrall Cantor”
    male human, past life cleric
    radiant servant-18 bard-1 fighter-1
    unyielding sentinel, blunt weapons






    Biographies
    Code:
    "Novitiates have no name," Novitiate scrawls in fresh-mixed paint of soot and water on a polished board. He never speaks to anyone, and luckily, you have been taught your letters. Not all have.
    
    Novitiate does sing beautifully. He will not respond to any conversation with his voice, however.
    
    When you ask him what he is a novitiate of, he wipes the board clean but does not write an answer.
    
    At the mention of the Heljimjradi kingpriest, he stiffens slightly. You gather Novitiate does not support his rule.

    Code:
    "I defer," says Oroqis. Her deference is deafening, sometimes.
    
    The woman clearly knows the world well; yet, she never voices her opinion. She keeps to herself, quietly assisting at your side. You almost never need to tell her how to help you, and when you do, again the deference.
    
    The first time you saw her skin flutter with light and collapse into the shape of a wolf, your heart skipped a full measure. Now you take it for granted--that she treads just behind you, waiting.

    Discussion
    Code:
    To consider with enhancement pass: swap rogue level with ranger level, get Tendon Cut with Deepwood Stalker instead of Hamstring feat.
    
    Oroqis opted for experimenting with the Whirlwind Attack feat and loved it. Goals included getting a high amount of doublestrike, Overwhelming Critical, Shadow Fade, and Hamstring, but Overwhelming Critical proved to require too many feats.
    
    Hamstring has lots of merits and a strong thematic synergy with being a wolf that I just couldn't ignore. The one glaringly non-syngergistic aspect to it is the full ranks of UMD but inability to use wands and scrolls while shapeshifted.
    Tactics
    Code:
    A Bloody Shadow Staff loses out on the unique shapeshifted+centered dual-wielding aspect of using kamas, but the ability to quickly level drain monsters at [1d10] 17-20x3 (as opposed to the unshapeshifted staff's normal profile of [1d6] 19-20x2) cannot be underestimated. Additionally, bodyfeeder and lesser vampirism work beautifully together to mitigate damage. 
    
    Another option would be a Petrifying Shadow Staff but I have found that an EarthIII greensteel kama and something in the offhand, and later an Alchemical EarthI kama work better in most cases. The Bloody Shadow Staff is viable all the way until level 25--the wide critical threat level drain proc is just that powerful, particularly if you're sneak attacking, stunning, draining them of life and gaining HP while setting up others to smash them while they're helpless or instakill them with their lowered saves.

    Goodoldxelos' "Woof" Monk helped me to think about how to fit in overwhelming critical in Oroqis' first life, though she later went away from the path in favor of more tactical feats and the Precision feat. He crafted a very intuitive yet highly original and engaging build.
    
    Utility of unarmed Whirlwind Attack feat citation can be found here: Dethtrip's Whirlwind Attack thread and MaddMatt's Eviscerator though it does appear to still have slightly punitive pause after (though it's not nearly as bugged/poorly implemented as with weapons).

    Default Character P

    Palahatva Embergaze
    “Whitesmiter rebel”
    female drow, past life sorceress
    battle engineer-20
    shiradi champion, (repeating) crossbows


    Biographies
    Code:
    Current Life
    "Temper the self, and the world is your scabbard." On more than one occasion, Palahatva has said this with hot regret. You can feel her boiling resentment of the Whitesmiters still.
    
    Her companion Alloy has often surprised you with its ferocity, particularly towards smiths and warforged. It stalks them with half the grace of a true warhound and thrice the deadliness, tripping them first and then savaging their unnerving wood and metal innards, livewood sap or artificer's oil oozing from its adamantine jaws. 
    
    Past life (sorceress)
    "The Whitesmiters will set this right," Palahatva says matter-of-factly.
    
    Something about this striking woman, though not possessing a sorceress' charms nor a bard's fanfare, compells you to heed her every quiet command. Her flawless countenance belies a fiercely-controlled power of dubious origin.
    
    In a rich accent redolent of sunlight and sylvan mystery, she says she studied under the Enlightened of Lan Ba'andir until a grave misunderstanding impelled her to flee their academy in the distant Lokshmyran woods.
    
    Why, she does not say, but her luminous citrine eyes assume distance when you inquire. Upon realizing that neither you nor your other companions have ever heard of any forests of 'Lokshmyra' nor the 'Enlightened,' your confusion--and interest--mounts.
    
    What more you attempt to persuade from her falls on unwilling ears. Like so many beautiful women you have met, she appears to keep her secrets well.

    Default Character Q

    Quorr Qhostas
    “Peak Emissary”
    male half-elf, past life ranger
    ranger-8 monk-6 artificer-6
    shiradi champion, bows


    Biographies
    Code:
    You can see nothing grizzled about this impeccably-manicured dwarf. Quorr's eyepatch gleams with fragrant milkthistle oil, and the horizontal stripes of pate showing through his luxurious mane of platinum white hair appear freshly shaved.
    
    Nevertheless, his brusque manner often rubs you the wrong way, and as polished as his exterior is, his social graces sometimes fall short of civilized.
    
    You gather from brief conversation that Tribe Qhostas hails from the outskirt colonies of the Kishan Empire south of the Jiratchiqarim mountains, though you've not once heard of any such an empire nor mountain range.
    
    In essence, this stout package of a man bubbles with more contradictions than a Ghallanda distillate, though he consistently fells his foes with unmatched fury.

    Default Character S

    Spinfocus simulacrum
    “Vertical guard”
    female half-orc, past life rogue
    acrobat-18 monk-1 fighter-1
    legendary dreadnought, staves


    Biographies
    Code:
    "The exigencies of the flesh," Spinfocus confides softly, "have their price."
    
    Past Life (rogue)
    "I want my body back," Spinfocus says plaintively.
    
    The lustrous amethyst livewood constructing this hulking frame is only slightly less graceful than its gait. At odds with her demure voice, she claims to hail from the Heljimjradii forests. She claims she's not quite a true Cannith-manufactured warforged.
    
    Spinfocus' true name was once Oumad Famentiri of House Magdala, she says awkwardly. The once-powerful ruler of the house, Vyen, disbanded the proud group for unknown reasons.
    
    Her makers forged simulacra for a group of powerful 'mergers' called the Enlightened, though, like the nation Heljimjrad, you've never heard of such an institution. Powerful mergers receive a simulacrum to train their expanded senses and potent supernatural abilites, but something went awry in Oumad's merger training.
    
    She sprints across the topic like hot sand, but Oumad, now Spinfocus, obviously merged too completely with her simulacrum. Her practiced movement and fierce martial competence still hints at something once human.
