Need some help

Hello, all.

Was wondering if someone could help me.
I was reading a Dragon magazine in my library and I came across an article that detailed leveling up as certain celestial creatures, specifically sword archons, rheks, and holyphants.

Unfortunately, I was unable to copy all that stuff down before I had to leave and since I am unable to check things out here, I had to leave it behind. Does anyone have that particular magazine? If so, could you post and tell me the details on level progression for holyphants? I'd really appreciate it, thank you very much.

Downloadable campaigns

anyone know where I can find quality player created campaigns online? I'm interested in any of the main settings, but I'm most interested in campaigns for Ravenloft. I'm looking for something to work with when I decide to DM for the first time, but I dont have a lot of money right now.

The Telflammar Shadowlord and You

Little bit of an opinion poll here.

I don't have the book in front of me, but the Telflammar Shadowlord level 5 ability, Shadow Discorporation, has a little ambiguity.

For those of you who don't know, the ability essentially reads (paraphrased):

   Shadow Discorporation (Ex?): Whenever the Telflammar Shadowlord would be reduced to 0 or fewer hit points and is not in an area of daylight or the direct area of a light sources, he or she may attempt a Reflex save (DC = 5 + damage dealt). If the save is successful, the Telflammar Shadowlord breaks apart into a bunch of shadows, reforming at the next sunset at any point of the character's choice within one mile of the spot where he or she discorporated. While discorporated, the Shadowlord cannot do anything or be harmed by his or her enemies. He or she simply ceases to exist.

Pure munchkin, I know. But I love the ability and the class has a big kick of flavour to it. Aaaaaaanyway, my question is thus: When the Telflammar Shadowlord reforms, can he or she just name the spot they want to reappear at? Do they need to be familiar with it? Is it somewhere they need to have personally seen before, or just know where it is?

My gut says they need to know what it looks like, but the ability says otherwise...

... and killing yourself to infiltrate an enemy stronghold is always a fun option for a follower of Loviatar. After all, a little pain never hurt anyone.
