Eusebia Tagaris[edit]

Daughter of Theodora Tagaris, agent of the Drome, and Agdir of Borealios. Studied in the Order of the Fifth Circle. A middling talent, getting by on charm as much as skill. Traveled to Arden Vul to investigate rumors of extraplanar contacts from before the contraction of the Empire.

Class Abilities[edit]

  • Magical research - a magic-user of any level may spend time and money on magical research. This allows them to add new spells to their spell book and to research other magical effects. When a magic-user reaches 9th level, they are also able to create magic items.
  • Spell casting - Magic-users carry spell books containing the formulae for arcane spells. The level progression table shows both the number of spells in the magic-user's spell book and the number they may memorize, determined by the character's experience level.
  • Using magic items - As spell casters, magic-users are able to use magic scrolls of spells on their spell list. They can also use items that may only be used by arcane spell casters (e.g. magic wands).
  • Order of the Fifth Circle trained: Cantrip - The character can expend small amounts of magical energy to accomplish basic tasks. The character may do so as often as desired and can produce the following general effects: shed light in a 5’ radius, extinguish a fire no larger than a torch or lantern, clean or dry a 25-sq.-ft. area, produce small gusts of wind, open or close unlocked and unbarred doors and windows, etc. Generally, cantrips have a maximum range of 45’, and last for no more than one hour. It takes one round to cast a cantrip. The caster can cast offensive cantrips as well. These minor spells can take any form, but all inflict untyped magical damage; a caster who tosses small balls of fire isn’t actually doing fire damage. Such spells have a range of 25 feet and do 1d4 points of damage, or 60 feet and 1d2 points of damage. Both require a successful ranged attack roll and the target does not get to make a save.

  • "We spent a couple of hours in the market run by the Arden Vul trolls. On the floor of that market-cave we glimpsed some ancient military insignia; it looked like the symbol of the Sheepshead Rangers (i.e., the Imperial Second Legion). Wasn't that the legion that got destroyed with Adrienic a few centuries ago? I bet the Drome would be interested in that information. Of course you'd need hard evidence from the Troll Market to convince Keko the Lame" (who you know to be the logothete for the Drome in Narsileon).
  • "The priests of Thoth constructed a shrine to their god in the valley of Arden Vul. Although all nonbelievers who have tried to visit the shrine were stoned on sight, one report emerged which claims that the shrine contains full layouts of the Thothian precincts under Arden Vul." It was implied that the Drome within the valley would be pleased to receive such information. Your own research within the Order of the Fifth Circle's libraries turned up another interesting scrap of information: 'Zhorak, the great smith of the People of Stone, was enticed to Arden Vul by the archons. He set up his forge, however, in a completely inaccessible region, surrounded by dangerous caves. One could only safely visit his forge by teleportation.'
