Due to some, eh, not favourable circumstances that I'd rather not get into, I need to rebuild a character of mine for a game I play in. The GM needs it as an NPC over the next two weeks because I won't be able to play.

The problem I'm running into atm is that I need the statistics for the shade template from the FRCS. The GM and the other player I know that have the book are not home right now and I'm not going to get a chance to get on a computer with internets for the next few days once I leave work tonight (in about five hours), so I need that info before I leave.

I had burnt a PDF copy onto a CD to take to work, but I think I actually burnt the CD in 'test' mode, so I don't have that here.

I also don't have the details I need for the Tel'flammar Shadowlord from Unapproachable East, so if anyone has the prereqs and skills, that'd be great, since I have the other class featu-- no, wait, I don't, because the GM has my current character sheet. Dammit.


If anyone can type-up/e-mail/MSN me the information for the shade template and the Tel'flammar Shadowlord (I know the special abilities and spell list, but I need the BAB/Saves/HD/Skills/Prereqs), I'd be ever so grateful.

Otherwise I get to waste time making an NPC-that-could-possibly-be-a-PC-if-the-rest-of-the-party-doesn't-screw-up in addition to my possible-replacement-PC-in-case-they-do when I arrive to the next session in two weeks instead of making it now and possibly just getting to play the character when I arrive. :p

I didn't realize it fit my character's build so well o.O

Shadowy Stride -- is there a limit to how often it can be used?
31st-May-2006 02:46 am (UTC)
Once every two rounds.
31st-May-2006 02:52 am (UTC)
That is so cheaty feeling with Shadow Pounce.
31st-May-2006 02:54 am (UTC)
I dunno. Maybe they weakened it for 3.5 (hopefully so, as it's currently extremely unbalanced, but unlikely since it's still Forgotten Realms).
31st-May-2006 02:27 am (UTC) - Shade:
+20 speed in darkness.
+2 competence bonus to their attacks and damage in darkness.
+4 deflection bonus to AC in darkness.
+4 luck bonus to saving throws in darkness.
+2 Constitution and Charisma in darkness.

+8 Hide and Move Silently in darkness.

I couldn't find a LA for the template (shakes fist at 3.0), but it has a +2 CR if that helps you figure out its ECL.
31st-May-2006 02:37 am (UTC) - Re: Shade:
Thanks a million.

My entire group seems to think it's a +4 LA, although none of us are sure where we heard/read that.
31st-May-2006 02:40 am (UTC) - Re: Shade:
No problem.

I would call it a +4 LA.
31st-May-2006 02:45 am (UTC) - Re: Shade:
A little googling figured it out.

It's in Races of Faerun as a +4, and the errata for the FRCS (which is newer) has it as a +5.

I think the GM is content with it being a +4, because I had 4 ECL worth of templates previously (Shadow-walker + Half Air-Elemental [acquired later for storyline reasons]).
31st-May-2006 02:40 am (UTC) - Shadowlord:
Must possess shadow-walker template.
Any nongood.

31st-May-2006 02:46 am (UTC) - Re: Shadowlord:
Cool, thanks again.

I wonder if the GM will let me substitute Shadowy Stride for Dimension Door/Shadow Jump... I know I would. :/

I'll assume he will and if not, well, I'll burn that bridge when I rewrite.
31st-May-2006 02:48 am (UTC) - Re: Shadowlord:
It'd make sense since it's essentially a vastly improved version of Shadow Jump.
31st-May-2006 02:53 am (UTC) - Re: Shadowlord:
That's how I viewed it. Thanks again for all the info. ;)
31st-May-2006 02:55 am (UTC) - Re: Shadowlord:
Not a problem.
