Inerill's Herald
  • Inerill, the Forgemaster God of Dwarves and Honor has chosen you to carry it's will. You won't necessarily know what exactly you have to do, but Inerill know you are going to do your best. From the moment Inerill choose you as it's herald until you finish it's holy quest, your soul is branded and clerics and other people alike might be able to see it just by looking at you. Whenever you are reconigsed as an Inerril's Herald, creatures with good heart will usually treat you very well and try to help you, while creatures with evil hearts might try to avoid you or even cause you harm.

  • Requeriments: Non evil, non chaotic and either Dwarf (with Inerill as it's main deity) or Cleric/paladin of Inerill

  • Tool Proficiencies: One type of artisan's tools

  • Language: Choose one language.
  • Equipment: A set of clothes appropriate to your duties and a pouch containing 20 gp

Feature: Sturdier

Maybe you were born like this, or maybe you followed Inerril`s teachings and built yourself like this, either way, you are as sturdy as it gets.

Your class hit points dice increases: from 1d6 to 1d8, from 1d8 to 1d10, from 1d10 to 1d12, and from 1d12 to 

Feature: Inerill's Stubbornness

Inerill's Herald Contacts
1I once got into a fight with an orc Champion and had to call a cleric....but not for me!
2I once armwrestred an ogre to a draw.
3My parents worked with the imperial dwarven blacksmithes
4I adventured for a few months with a Watcher, great fighter, horrible excuse for a beard.
5I keep meeting the same crazed clisallis cleric, and she always tries to convinces me that's Inerill's will. Is it?
6Almost got into a fight with a tough looking bearded pirate captain, and i have a feeling that it's not over yet.
7Had to endure a nature's messenger company for weeks, and he kept babbling everytime. i hope to never meet the guy again.
8I once saved a fancy caravan from a bandit attack, than i discovered that this caravan was transporting an Air Elemental Sultan, didn't care for it and just went my way.
9A random troll stopped me out of nowhere in the middle of the streets and with a malicious smile told me that my blood holds power, i shushed him and called him a Clype-Dreep-Bachle, Gether-Uping-Blate-Maw, Bleathering Gomeril Jessie, Oaf-Looking Nyaff, Plookie Milk-Drinking Shan, Mim-Moothed Sniveling Hotten-Blaugh Vile-Stoochie Cally-Breek-Tattiem gnome motherfucker. Never saw the guy anymore.
10A giant wolf from the Steelclaw Wolf Rider once tried to piss on my feet, but i grabbed the little puppy by it's ears and brought it down, than i had a throwoff with it's rider and we ended that in the tavern over some beers.
11I was part of a group dedicated to discuss Mercius and his philosophical principles because i was told that it's important to know well all non evil religions. After 3 months going to this group, having to endure a senile old human lady, a young goblin that seemed lost, a fluffy ferlix and a lot of nonsense, i at least learned a great recipe for carrot cake. Waste of time.
12Had to team up with an orc, we fought our way out of a kruthic infested cave and after resting a little bit to catch our breaths, measuring each other, we drew our weapons, but a merchant caravan arrived. We got a ride to closest city where we went our separate ways.
13I keep getting in an argument everytime with a Petrus Crusader and and an orc Champion. Which weapon is the best? The maul, the greatsword or the greataxe? Sometimes things get pretty heated up.
14i had to take a ship once and it sunk during a storm, everyone but me died. I woke up on a desert island and not knowing how to swimn i thought i was doomed, but a Ferlix Roca Rider came from nowhere and rescued me. Turns out i was very close to the mainland, he mocked me a lot and i'm not sure how i will feel when i meet him again.
15I think one of the captains of Runik (dwarven capital) is an undercover Norfss. Fucking lizards.
16A Nature's Messenger, a Tempesta and a Web Manipulator walk into a bar.....And if it's the bar you are in, you just leave, because you can bet the flingowflowers will order some vegetarian meal with overpriced wine, and if that happens, that means you chose the unfun tavern.
17A Norfss once saved me from certain death when i lost a duel against a Belliard Enforcer. He told me that Norfss stand together with the dwarven people and Inerill and said he could help me to hunt the Belliard enforced who had just fled. I felt disnohored, ashamed and didn't know what to do.
18Roll an additional contact; you can decide if the contact is an ally or a rival.

What are my responsabilities?

Fulfill the quest that Inerill has trusted you with. Maintain the good name of the dwarven people (even if you are not one), act with honour, act with courage, keep to your word, do not falter in front of evil, do not let your innaction be what determines if someone will be saved or not.

  • Be it through merit or inheritance, you have been blessed by the gods by being a member of the human nobility. As would be expected most nobles are humans, but exceptions do exist. The human kingdoms were all united under the high king, whose seat of power is in the white continent, but around 150 years ago his capacity to project power on the other continents was greatly diminished, coupled with what some saw as cowardice in the face of danger in the summit of peace, the kings from the other continents decided to question his authority and become independent. Despite the high kings resistance, his resources were too strained by all the conflicts and he ended up having to accept the new status quo. Now there are several human kings, the two major ones are the sunspear family still ruling the white continent despite no longer being the king of kings, and in the green continent the voskoff family continues its centuries old rule. The red continent used to have a human king, but he had to flee to the green continent long ago, and now what remains of his kingdom is a duchy sized kingdom on the coast of the green continent. Finally, on the frozen lands of the blue continent, several kingdoms emerged over the last 150 years. The biggest kingdom is still ruled by the Fontelle family and has the best and most prosperous land in the blue continent, comprising most of the southern coast, making it easier to do commerce with the outside world and giving it leverage with the smaller insular kingdoms. Nominally, all human realms mentioned above are part of the old alliance with elves and dwarves, Dwarves and elves also have their own nobility, with their unique boons Being a noble is more than just serving crown and country, its about serving your liege and making your ancestors (and descendants) proud, its about setting an example to the poor, and manifesting your will on the world!

  • Requirements: being a member of a noble family, either through birth or adoption, and having a liege you must serve Skill proficiencies: Choose one between history, gaming sets, insight, persuasion, intimidation, deception Languages: Choose one language Equipment: Noble clothes with heraldry, one gaming kit, a pouch containing 60gp

Feature: Position of privilege Thanks to your noble birth, people are inclined to think the best of you. You are welcome in high society, and people assume you have the right to be wherever you are.

You can secure an audience with a local noble if you need to. Additionally, you have a magical signet that will unquestionably prove your nobility. Feature: I am not a peasant You have advantage whenever you roll against a charm effect. Feature: Kept in Style While you are in allied territory your house sees to your everyday needs.

This advantage enables you to live a comfortable lifestyle without having to pay 2 gp a day for it, or reduces the cost of a wealthy or aristocratic lifestyle by that amount. You may not maintain a less affluent lifestyle and use the difference as income—the benefit is a line of credit, not an actual monetary reward.

Roll three times on the Noble Contacts table (for two allies and a rival) - 

Noble Contacts
1When I was young, I was best friends with one of the princes, we occasionally still exchange letters, last one he invited me to visit the capital as his guest for the winter festival but there was something off about the letter ... I confirmed its legit, but the way he wrote led me to think theres more to it than nostalgia and reminiscing the good old days.
2My uncle is a powerful skirmisher, always sending letters telling the most amazing tales, he even sent a less prominent skirmisher to drill our guards, and although very skilled, it is rumored that he is addicted to arcane dust.
3One of my ancestors was turned in a vampire during the crusades, and we have recently found out he is still "alive" when he sent encrypted letters to everyone in the family, and we are still trying to decypher it, for this we hired one of the best elven codebreakers but he has been at it for 6 months and couldnt crack the code, claiming he needs more letters.
4I have a cousin that is an epic adventurer member of the Guardians of good, last I heard, he has already been ressurrected 3 times and is favoring backline duty.
5The king is my godfather, from back when he was still a prince, I havent seen him since I was a baby, but recently I got a letter saying he wants all his godchildren to attend his daughters wedding to the Duke Marillion.
6A very powerful sorcerer countess seduced me, used me and then discarded me, just when I managed to get over it, she started sending me letters and magical messages to arrange a new date.
7I have a second degree blood relation to the archbishop of Petrus, and have met the chosen of Petrus.
8To pay for our family debts my father arranged my sister, one of the most beautiful woman in the continent, to be married to a Marillion for a million gold, unfortunately the money is quickly running out as my father has a gambling problem and now it seems my father is studying the possibility of selling everything we have to the Marillions.
9roll twice.
10One of my cousins is an absolutely degenerate wizard, hes running from justice after tricking a noble into having sex with him while transmogrified into the opposite sex, it is said he is one of the smartest wizards ever and an expert in alchemy.
11My uncle is a retired wizard that tends to a successful magic item trading business.
12Our family estate was built on top of an ancient elven graveyard, we consulted with experts, did the proper rituals and sent their souls to their proper resting place save, and now we are on good terms with the local druidic circle.
13Our family has a powerful elven mage as a stewart, he was an amazing tutor and seems to know everything, apparently hes also guarding some artifact in our family mausoleum.
14A millenia ago, my family helped a kyrin survive persecution, he became our eternal bodyguard and we all trust him with our life, but he is very strict.
15A dwarf cleric of inerill has served several generations of my family as a doctor and tutor, only recently I discovered he is a distant member of the imperial family that only left his homeland because he couldnt stomach watching his brother being married to the girl he loved.
16My brother is a wizard prodigy and is an influential academic in the royal academy, his research on comparative metamagics made him famous with arcane institutions all over and could change the world, he is being invited to give lectures all over the place.
17My sister was married three times, all husbands died misteriously, the latest one was confirmed to have been poisoned by her, to avoid justice she joined the black hand and disappeared a couple years ago. Everyone knows her as the black widow. Recently I heard rummors shes the captain of a pirate ship. I have no clue why she did what she did.
18My cousin is one of the greatest Primordio card game players alive, he was disinherited due to just playing cards all the time, but he ended up making a fortune playing cards and proved all the elders wrong and now hes trying to create his own branch of the family. It is easy to find him, just need to attend the biggest card tournament around.

What are my responsabilities?

You are expected to serve crown and realm when called to do so, and meanwhile, to tend to the responsabilities fit for your specific station. Lords (and above) must watch over their land, keep it prosper and safe and most importantly, collect and pay taxes! For the lower ranked nobles such as Sirs, which include landed and unlanded knights, princelings, and etc. You will be called to serve in case of war (if not already enrolled in the army or navy), but meanwhile you are mostly free to search for your fame and fortune in a lawful manner, which includes having approval from your liege to do so while setting a good example of what an ideal noble is. In practice, nobles can easily delegate their functions to subordinates and go on adventures doing whatever they want with little consequence, as long as they dont get caught by the authorities breaking the law and desecrating noble values, life will go on just fine. In situations when theres no law authority and no higher ranked nobles, you are effectively the highest law enforcement authority, and are expected to enforce the kings laws, although it is understood that often theres situations that make it unfeasible.

Once per day, when you make a saving throw against nefarious shit like necromantic magic or even spells/powers used by spiritual beings, you can opt to make the saving throw with advantage.

Feature: Norfss Marshlands  [ White Continent ]

You lived your whole life in the Norfss swamps. But not in Utopia or any other of the major cities, you lived in a horrible excuse for a villge and despite all the horrible conditions, you thrived there.

Feature: A Vila do Mathias  [ Green Continent ]

anymore, that means the crazy person passed out. Grab it by the feet and submerge this person into water until it comes to his senses, use a water well if possible, because it will help the water preventing other people from going mad in the future, don't forget to scream to the villagers why the person was mad. Now alternate beetween flogging the insane person and drowning him. He will start making sense, he will start saying the right stuff, but madness is clever, don't belive him, at least not for the first hours. If after doing it for some hours, the madness dind't consume and killed him, now you can believe he is healed and will cooperate with whatever you, a sane person who knows better, needs.

12Had to team up with a dwarf, follower of the Bearded God, but aren't all dwarves followers of the bearded god? Don't know, don't care. We fought our way out of a kruthic infested cave and after resting a little bit to catch our breaths, measuring each other, we drew our weapons, but a merchant caravan arrived. We got a ride to closest city where we went our separate ways.
13I armwrestled an ogre do a draw, but all the bets were on him. A goblin, the ogre's manager, was not happy about that and i cheated. The ogre was fine and tried to calm the goblin down. What did i do?
14i had to take a ship once and it sunk during a storm, everyone but me died. I woke up on a desert island and not knowing how to swimn i thought i was doomed, but a Ferlix Roca Rider came from nowhere and rescued me. Turns out i was very close to the mainland, he mocked me a lot and i'm not sure how i will feel when i meet him again.
15Accepted a job, should have being a simple job, get in, kill nasty stuff, get out. But the contractor, a lizard with wings who thought he was the most important creature in the world decided to brief us for 3 hours. We went inside and killed the nasty stuff. In the end i  Had a chance to omit an important item from him and keep it to myself, did i do it?
16I once spent 3 months living on the barn of an old farmer, helping him everyday. It was very good time spent and when i left, i knew i would return to visit him. I returned to his village one day and it was being attacked by a small band, i drew my weapon to find the village but found out the leader of the band was a childhood friend.
17Congratulations, have a look on the table and choose one option that fits you. (no, you can't choose 18, you fucker.)
18Roll an additional contact; you can decide if the contact is an ally or a rival.

What are my responsabilities?

You have none, just live your life and show how badass your people are. Maybe come by sometimes to visit your parents or friends, maybe with a group of adventurers that can help mitigating whatever is causing problems to your people.
