Mestine StormShaker, level 1 barbarian. I was bored.
The Great Maginio, the first character I made on DND beyond, was a 5th level Wizard of Evocation. The best one you ever saw.
Knife, level 3 Warforged Warlock of the Fiend, was last seen burning a troll to death.
May Brew DarkBarrel, Half Blind bartender of a Cthulhu Cultist, forever Rest In Peace. May come back to life.
Archy, Human warlock of the fiend/Champion Fighter, became a Demigod stronger than the Archdemon. His familiar, Hornet the Pseudodragon, became a patron of Pseudodragons and those who prefer thinking over action. (Played by ReptileBounty. He used my character, so I get this one)
Story of my Characters:
One day, 5 villains were out to take over the universe. One was Archy. Archy the ArchHuman. He won, and took out the others, and claimed a ‘Blood Orb’, making him stronger than everything. But his power was too big. It split the universe into 3 pieces, which would forever change history.
While Jack Black was getting attacked by a kraken in the 1st dimension, an event that changed his life, Brew Darkbarrel bought his bar. He gained the powers of a cultist, and, 3 years later, lost it. He was captured by the drow, and took off on a Bug-Like demon.
In the 2nd dimension, Knife was sent to the Feywild with 4 others, and disappeared. Henricook and the Blackwing family disappeared similarly, on,y for him to return 5 years later.
Next, my homebrew stuff. First, the Insanity Domain, for clerics that worship either the concept of Insanity or one of its gods. Next, an alternative kind of Phoenix, intended for lower level parties. I also have a homebrew spell called Claws of Horror, intended to be found with the artifact, Book of Vile Darkness.
Also, a Mermaid Player Race.
The results of a forgotten god's deal with a dying civilization, they have come up from the sea to take up arms against their mysterious master's ancient enemies.
With skin ranging from blue-green to almost black, and webbed hands, gills, and a webbed tail, Aberixian merfolk are clearly made for the water. On land, they coil up their tails and slither, moving slowly and awkwardly, but glide gracefully and outstrip any and all humans underwater. They have no hair to speak of, but males have short beard-like tentacles on their chins that they care for with pride.
Curious and Proud
Aberixian Merfolk have a comparatively short lifespan and resolve to use their time finding out as much as they can. They ask questions readily about things that are unfamiliar to them, and once they learn something, they commit it to memory so that no one will get the impression that they are slow or ignorant. They are proud and do not take kindly to insult, which they might see in little, accidental slights. However, they forgive readily enough if they can be persuaded that no harm was meant. As creatures of the sea, they do not usually build structures for the ages, but when they do commit to building something, it will stand for centuries. Their religion is the same way, most of it constantly changing, with a few underlining tenets that have been around since the world was young.
Creatures of Legend
Until recently, the different tribes of Aberixian Merfolk were inhabiting the underwater City of Atlantis. However, one hundred years ago, in an event known as The Rising, Atlantis came back out of the water, putting it in plain sight of all seafaring humans. Previously, humans had only known of the Aberixian Merfolk in fragments of legend and myth, but they now became all too real. However, life went on, and Aberixian Merfolk are now an accepted part of Aberixia.
Servants of Halkana
The original inhabitants of Atlantis were once regular humans, but after fighting a brutal ten-year battle with demons, decided to sink beneath the waves and manage their affairs separately from other humans. To do this, the ruler of the island, an old and powerful warlock, made a deal with his ancient patron, an old and forgotten god named Halkana. The patron agreed to transfigure the people of Atlantis into merfolk, but said that eventually, the demons would strike back against him. When that happened, be it a year from then or a lifetime, Atlantis would rise from the waves and the merfolk would help him destroy his foe.
Aberixian Merfolk Names
Merfolk names are not showy or elaborate, with long flowing syllables, but are not short and ugly-sounding, either. Aberixian Merfolk are given their name at birth, and upon coming of age, (typically twenty-five) receive a name indicating their social class.
Male Birth Names: Adoran, Adramov, Alakos, Daimos, Hadrion, Hastarios, Magandar
Social Class Names: Highest Class(Knights and Nobility): Halkani
Middle Class(Scribes and Researchers): Fayralen
Lower Class(Everyone else): Fega
For instance, a princess would be called Abria Halkani.
Their ever-changing religion ensures that the Aberixian Merfolk tend towards the chaotic alignments, but due to their human origins, it is difficult to make predictions any further.
Aberixian Merfolk are descended from humans, and they are of the same general size. In the water, Aberixian Merfolk's tails extend behind them, giving them a total length of about six and a half feet. On the ground, they coil their tails beneath them, making their height closer to five feet. Your size is Medium.
They are descended from humans, but their change also unlocked reserves of life force, slightly bolstering their lifespan. They live slightly longer than one century, usually about 110 years. They mature at the same age as humans but do not show any signs of getting older until around 70 or 80. However, once they do start aging, they do it at a faster rate.
Aberixian Merfolk are very graceful and streamlined in the water, shooting along quickly. However, they are not built for land travel, and can only slither along slowly while out of the water. Your base walking speed is 10 feet. You also have a swimming speed of 40 feet
