Current Fatigue: 0.

Reminder: Cursed by the Sexy Naked Lady on Exp. 110. We agreed to retrieve an item from the fortress in Hex 5.18. Curse will trigger by April 1, 2018 if we don’t. Also affected: Tieldanae, Sovan, JP, Bugle, Martin, Jean-Lee.

Jungle Drop Quirk from Expedition 115: If you are targeting a ki user in the Broken Forest or Poison Jungle, you must a DC12 Wis save to make the attack if you aren’t in melee rage. If you fail the save, you may do something else. Fireball and Lightning bolt may be cast from melee range, i.e., fireball must have one component touching you and for lightning bolt you probably have to be up in their face.
hp 29.1/29.1 AND advantage on HP level up rolls (blessing of grandmother dryad)
3d8 HD (not d6, because of unique former monkness, lost 1 HD to Forging the Danger Room, lost 1 HD to her maresh addiction, generally loses another one to abusing maresh on downtime)
-2 HP for casting Counterspell at the Puppeteer with Blood Magic on Exp 69.
-10 HP for eating the most powerful prism fruit from Exp. 80.
-5 HP for casting the start of the Ritual to Close the Abyssal Gate with Blood Magic on Exp 110.
AC 19, 22 with Mage Armor (Int to AC, always, + Wis to unarmored defense, min +1)
Speed 40ft ( +5 ft included off of Raevori subclass, +5 for Assassin’s Fast Javelin of Contingency)
1 attunement slot permanently devoted to being Paragon of Magic of the Danger Room.
5’ 6 and 7/8", 115lb
Darkvision (to 100 ft). [+10 ft. from the Abyssal Draught drank on Expedition 110, +30 ft. from getting kicked in the face by a two-headed goat on Expedition 117’s trip home]
Fey Ancestry. You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
Trance. Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion: such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
Ritual Casting. Raevori cannot cast ritual spells. Her magic is too pure for that ridiculous mumbo-jumbo.
Arcane Insight. Raevori has a natural sense for magic. She can spend an action to see with detect magic for the following round. She can use this ability a total of INT mod rounds a day.
Arcane Recovery. Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level equal to or less than half your wizard level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.
Arcane Tradition: Raevori.
You have disadvantage on arcana checks to learn a spell from another wizard’s spellbook (and no modification on the roll is possible). However, your brilliance is so unique that once an expedition you may roll Int (again, no modifiers possible) against DC20 to discover a new spell, which you can copy into your spellbook for half cost. (Last checked after expedition 60)
Raevori’s Way of the Open Spellbook.
Raevori trained herself to be an intelligence based monk, with no help from the wis-based wood elven monks who raised her. When Grandmother Dryad unlocked her access to her mother’s magic, that trained was transmuted into a complementary spellcasting tradition. You get your Intelligence bonus to AC, and +5 feet to your movement speed. In addition, your HD are d8, not d6. In addition, your get proficiency on Dexterity saves but lose it for Wis saves.
Background Feature: Contact. Raevori has a steady supplier for her maresh addiction, gleaned from her criminal background.
Backstory Tradeoff: Maresh Addiction. Raevori is addicted to maresh (a smoked substance like nicotine but stronger), which gives her disadvantage on Persuasion and Intimidation checks, but lets her reroll an Int check once a day. Her addiction also costs her 1 HD. Her HD are reduced by an additional 1 (2 total from this) on any expedition where she used the maresh reroll ability to do research the previous week.
Backstory Benefit: Bona Fide Genius
Raevori gets +1 research point / week spent doing research (she still pays the GP costs for this point), and can research things that she would normally need a specific proficiency for.
Upon reaching 4th level, Raevori got +1 Int, +1 Dex.
Raevori has absorbed the energy of one Eyeless rock, gaining +1 Int and having her vision turn slightly faded and sepia toned (no mechanical effect). +1 Corruption.
Living Arcane Gem
As a reward for slaying the evil hivemind in expedition 16, the mushrooms of 3.11 implanted a crystal seed on Raevori’s breastbone that has blossomed into a orange gem glowing with arcane might. This gem can automatically hold the concentration for any spell that Raevori casts (cannot lose concentration from any effect, and the spell doesn’t stop when she becomes unconscious), and it grants her level / 2 rounded down (currently 3) sorcery points, which can be spent on recovering spells as normal, or as metamagic, appling the Subtle affect (for 1 point, spell does not require somatic or verbal components). She also learned Empower (normal sorcerer rules). Unlike sorcerers, Raevori regains 1 sorcery point every short rest. She might learn a third at 7th level.
DRAWBACK: Increased pain sensitivity. The handful of skin-tone coloured mushroom tendrils growing out from the gem have affected Raevori’s nervous system, increasing her sensitivity to pain. She gets -2 on all temporary injury rolls (even though they appear only as bad as the unmodified roll), and has disadvantage on all saves to persist doing something that is painful, like long distance running.
Pack Tactics Against Aberrations
Raevori has pack tactics against aberrations with Beauregard, Rock, Lucens, Valerian, and Tabby. If any of them is adjacent to an aberration, she has advantage on attacks against it. If she is adjacent to an aberration, they have advantage on attacks against it. Gained on expedition 21.
A Nose for Magic
Raevori was granted a limited ability to smell magic by the wolf spirit of the Grey Hills. She can’t discern school, but with a successful perception check she can determine approximate strength and direction. She can use this to try to track magical creatures or effects, even though she isn’t trained in survival. Gained on expedition 28.
Major Magic Item: Left Chain of the Chainlord
Raevori bound the left chain of the chain lord that slew her mother to her, heating it in her mother’s funeral pyre as a final collaboration between mother and daughter.
It gives her four benefits at the moment:
She can be able to apply a combat superiority ability related to movement to the targets of her spells (trip, push, menace, disarm, distract, all as battlemaster). She can do this 4x / short rest +1 at 7, 10, 15, 18
Step Into My Web
Can cast web 1/day.
Raevori can cast touch spells at 10 foot range, dealing an extra d6 points of force damage when she does so (also applies to ranged spells at 10 ft range). Ranged spells cast through the chain count as melee attacks.
The Invisible Lash
She can use a magical reaction to trip a target attempting to close with her as an AOO
1/expedition, can cast counter spell. This doesn’t use your reaction, and can be used even if you’ve already used your reaction.
Black Velvet Glove of Stealth
If you put it on and attune, you have advantage on Stealth checks and things that try to see you have disadvantage on Perception checks. The resulting field blanks your magic vision.
Once per expedition, you can touch a target, including yourself – proficient Dex attack if a hostile – and create a Silence effect that moves with it, duration 10 minutes. If you’re damaged, make ‘Concentration’ checks (doesn’t use your concentration, but Gem doesn’t help.)
[not currently attuned]
Assassin’s Fast Javelin of Contingency
+3 wizard spell preparation slots
+prof to damage on surprise rounds (just with this javelin?)
+5 feet movement speed
Cost: 1200 gp
Blood Magic Practitioner
Raevori can spend 1d4+1 permanent HP to cast any spell she knows without using a spell slot as if she was casting it with a 4th level spell slot.
Junior Member of the Ebon Bank (Ledgers / Acquisitions)
Raevori is now a wererat (this process got her back 2 points of Int). If she passes her save to evade a spell in a way that would normally let her take half damage, she instead takes no damage. Her possessions merge with her body when she turns into a rat.
Magic Fist Technique
(Level 6 wizard class feature for Wizard (Raevori)) Gain martial arts as monk, except you can attack as a bonus action after an Attack OR casting a cantrip.
Also, if you hit with 2 martial arts attacks in one round, you can apply a Stunning Strike (DC Int-based) to your opponent. Use this ability only 1/SR.
Due to eating the most powerful prism fruit from Expedition 80, Raevori lost 10 HP and gained vulnerability to fire damage. This was caused by skin becoming willowy with supporting tendrils just giving her massive flexibility, +4 Dex, and allowing her to add wisdom to unarmoured defence (min + 1 ac). Her skin is kind of slightly papery, like smooth porcelain bark – the tendrils are beneath and appear when bloodied or with a bit of digging.
After-Effects of the Demon Ichor Abyssal Draught
Due to drinking a bubbling black infusion of demon ichor from the abyssal guard on Expedition 110, Raevori gained +10 feet dark vision and now takes +2 points of radiant damage anytime I take radiant damage.
Kindness to the Bridge Kitty
Raevori gave some fancy food to the cat by the bridge in the Realm of Cats on expedition 115. This granted her the +10 feet slow-fall ability (reduce falling distance by 10 feet for calculating falling damage).
White King Chess Piece
1/exp (especially good in cat realm) reaction to make a target (Targeting as Dissonant Whispers, range 90 ft. – need not see it, must know it’s there. Someone telling me counts.) to make a Cha save vs. 8+prof+user’s highest mental mod [so DC15 for me atm]. If the target fails it BECOMES visible and cannot become invisible by any means for one minute. The holder of the piece gets advantage on attacks against the target and the target has disadvantage on saves against the wielder. The target must be invisible to be hit by this – it’s a punishing inversion of the attempt to conceal oneself. If you cynically cast invisibility on it yourself, such as with your familiar, that counts, cats love to be contrary assholes. Doesn’t require attunement. Because the target is constantly lit up by a magical aura, Raevori has advantage (instead of disadvantage!) on Perception checks to see them when they hide. If they are just behind a curtain or something that would be automatically pierced by Detect Magic, she automatically sees them. 600 gp.
Siltheart Earthcrown of Athleticism
Gift from Rubble on Expedition 117 for besting him in a truly intense game of racquetball by sending a wicked serve that would have probably badly hurt Aythe if Rubble hadn’t thrown off his balance to block the shot to protect Aythe like he’d done (for accidental shots earlier). This doesn’t requirement attunement and grants advantage on any athletics based check to win a game of sports. Fancier than most earth crowns because of this. Also has normal Earthcrown abilities of being a sign that we are friends of the Siltheart. Can be collapsed into a ball of magic earth to store/hide it easily, fully reversible. 50 gp.

Favors and debts:

Raevori owns 800gp of the very expensive wizard spellbook from Exp. 84. See other wizards for details.
Raevori is owed 500gp by Tieldanae for her armor.
The Abyssal Guard have promised me to send 5 warriors (1 leader, 4 followers) to any mission I see fit at some point in the future. Each of the members of Expedition 110 received this pledge, so if we club together we could have a miniature army of 35 Abyssal Guard.
Surrendering the Silvershard
Raevori also fed her silvershard (a queer item from the island in the Grey Hills she purchased long ago that would grant a single use spell attack to turn an incorporeal creature corporeal) to the Bridge Kitty (a high-ranking Ur-Cat in the household of the Regent of Cats, Grimalkin von Uberwald IV aka Morris. The cat owes her a favour of some kind, which she can call in at the start of an expedition for assistance.

Sometimes (gyrfalcon stats):
Str 5 Dex 16 Con 8 Int 2 Wis 14 Cha 6

Keen Sight: Advantage on perception rolls that rely on sight
Action: I may use the familiar’s senses if I am within 100 feet of it. I am blind and deaf if I do this.
Action: I may temporarily dismiss my familiar to a pocket dimension (at any range), where it will await my summons. Another action will summon it to within 30 ft. of me.
A familiar can’t attack, but rolls its own initiative and takes its own turn.
A familiar can deliver a spell with a range of touch that I cast as if it had cast the spell if it is within 100 ft of me as I cast. This uses the familiar’s reaction. If the spell requires an attack roll, use my attack modifier.
Aelthrun costs 10gp to resummon.
Raevori is also the proud companion of the noble Horse Justice.
