  • Did you know that clerics of Avlissian Gods have wieldable, equippable Holy Symbols available? Besides being an excellent RP tool, they're quite powerful when your cleric gets a few levels under his belt... to get one, ask a DM. To use it, equip the generic symbol you're given and use the unique power on it. It'll transform to a Symbol of your character's deity. After that, you'll have two special powers available when you put the Symbol in your shield hand. Each use of a power costs one 6th level spell and one Turn Undead use. So what's it do? OK, here's the breakdown. For purposes of this, Greater Deities have a rank of 4, Intermediates, 3, and Lessers 2, and Demigods 1. If you don't know which rank your deity has, look it up on the wiki...


Offensive Effect: Outsiders with HD of up to (caster/2 * Deity Rank) make a Will save vs a DC of (5 + caster/2 + CHA modifier). If they fail, they are banished. If they succeed, they are stunned for 1 round/level. This effect ignores SR.
--Affected Alignment--
  • LG: All CG/CN/CE Outsiders, All LE/NE/CE Outsiders
  • NG: All NG/TN/NE Outsiders, All LE/NE/CE Outsiders
  • CG: All LG/LN/LE Outsiders, All LE/NE/CE Outsiders
  • LN: All CG/CN/CE Outsiders, All LN/TN/CN Outsiders
  • TN: All NG/TN/NE Outsiders, All LN/TN/CN Outsiders
  • CN: All LG/LN/LE Outsiders, All LN/TN/CN Outsiders
  • LE: All CG/CN/CE Outsiders, All LG/NG/CG Outsiders
  • NE: All NG/TN/NE Outsiders, All LG/NG/CG Outsiders
  • CE: All LG/LN/LE Outsiders, All LG/NG/CG Outsiders
Additionally, all Hostiles within the AoE are Blinded for 1 round, and take Holy Damage equal to 1d6 per (caster/4 * Deity rank). Will save for half and ignoring the blindness. Hostiles with the same Deity are unaffected.


Defensive Effect: This is benefits anyone within the AoE who has the same Law/Chaos alignment, and harms those of the opposite Law/Chaos alignment, e.g. a LG priest would benefit LG/LN/LE, and harm CG/CN/CE. All effects lasts one round per caster level/2.


The beneficial (same Law/Chaos alignment) effects are:
  • For every 5 caster levels, allies inside the AoE receive 5/ Soak DR, broken at +Deity rank... So, a 20th level Gorethite would grant +4 Soak 20 DR to all Lx party members.
  • Additionally, aligned party members receive +1 AB and +1 to all Saves for every 5 caster levels.
  • Further, all party members of the same Deity receive a bonus to AB and a divine damage bonus equal to the caster's CHA modifier.


The harmful (opposite Law/Chaos alignment) effects are:
  • Anyone (hostile and friendly) of the opposite law/chaos alignment must make a will save, or receive a reduction to AB and Saves of -1/5 caster levels.

  • Have you spoken to Xerto in the Mikona Marketplace? He carries on a long tradition of making stuff in volumes your PCs can only dream of...
  • Have you seen the interesting hole in the ground by the Summerleaf lift, near Kharak Thayt? Xerto loves that place...
  • Did you know there's a lowbie riddle quest in the Noble Flair, in Mikona? Go pester the local patrons...
  • Have you been to the Visimontium City Council Chamber? In the Dept. of Public Works there's a gnome who needs fungus spores. Don't ask why...


  • Do you remember me mentioning Barbarian Rage styles last week? First, be a barbarian. Next, buy some special ingredient from the place we talked about last week. Third, use it just before you rage. Fourth, kill stuff while raging. You'll see "Rager XP" start to accrue. When you hit 1000xp, you don't need the special ingredient anymore...


What does each ingredient do? Here's a quick review:
  • Dust of the Windwalker: Increased movement speed/increased attacks/round in exchange for a penalty of damage penalty and constitution penalty.
  • Oil of the Flamedancer: Damage increase/damage shield in exchange for damage vulnerability.
  • Water of the Deep Well: Concealment in exchange for attack miss percentage.
  • Stonewall's Brew: Damage immunity and temp hp in exchange for movement speed decrease and dexterity penalty.
  • Vial of Anointed Blood: Vampiric regen on the weapon in exchange for taking roundly damage.


Want the technical mumbo-jumbo? Here are the details... Don't blame me if you avoid failbarianism by reading this...
All ragers are placed into "categories" equal to 1 + (BRS level/3); The maximum category is 6.
  • Wind: 1 additional rank per category. +10% movement speed per category, -1 damage/-2 constitution per category.
  • Fire: Damage Increase of 2x Category fire damage, and a fire shield of 1d8 + 2x category damage. Penalty of 5% x category damage vulnerability to physical attack.
  • Water: 10% concealment per category, 5% miss chance per category. Up to 60% concealment/30% miss chance.
  • Earth: 7% damage immunity to physical damage per category. 10% movement penalty and -2 dexterity per category.
  • Blood: 3x category vampiric regen on weapon in exchange for 2x category damage per round while rage is active.
In addition, rage duration increases by +1/5 rager levels.

  • Cure/Inflict Light Wounds: 1d6%/2CL up to 3d6
  • Cure/Inflict Moderate Wounds: 1d6%/2CL up to 6d6
  • Cure/Inflict Serious Wounds: 1d6%/2CL up to 9d6
  • Cure/Inflict Critical Wounds: 1d6%/2CL up to 12d6
