Walter Himmelblauen 


Name: Walter Himmelblauen spacer.png

Level: 3

Race: Grey Elf

Class: Wizard 3 // Factotum 3

Character Concept: Monster mage

Description

Covered in thick red cloaks, face obscured by a crude wooden mask. The wild white hair the only sight of the man behind the mask.

Background

Born to the people of the forest, Walter was always a wild spirit, yearning to travel the lands in a nomadic life. An intelligent man, he was keen to see the land, the creatures and the wonders of the world.

Walter was fascinated with the creatures, monsters and fiends of the multiverse, obsessive in his studies to learn their ways. He learnt to apply their enate abilities and powers.

Character Concept

Character is based loosely on the final fantasy "Blue Mage", a mage that can use monsters abilities. Considering that there is no class that perfectly mimics it, I have the idea of using a wizard to take spells that can be roleplayed as monstrous abilities.

Decided factotum on the other side to provide skills and buy into the idea of understanding creatures we face.

Alternative Class Features/Levels:

Elven Wizard:

Generalist Wizardry: A 1st-level elf wizard begins play with one extra 1st-level spell in her spellbook. At each new wizard level, she gains one extra spell of any spell level that she can cast. This represents the additional elven insight and experience with arcane magic.

The elf wizard may also prepare one additional spell of her highest spell level each day. Unlike the specialist wizard ability, this spell may be of any school.

This substitution feature replaces the standard wizard's ability to specialize in a school of magic.

Personal 2cp:

Schwarz is ‘black’ in German. If you want blue mage, it’s something like ‘Zauberblau’.

 

You’re not being asked to change anything, this is just an informative post. I can review tomorrow when I’m awake.

Comments:

overall, this is well done. And, a fun character too!
 

  • please click on ‘generate statblock’
  • what’s your factotum spell?
  • can you fill out the spell DC section?
  • what’s the other flaw do? I can see the reflex modifier. Can you add it to the sheet?
  • 10’ ft poles are often trouble to carry around.

Cheers!

Right I have updated the following:

  • Generated statblock
  • Added factotum spell
  • Completed the spell DC section
  • Added the flaws into the sheet. The flaw is:

Grudge keeper

You have an overpowering need for vengeance and have difficulty letting go of grudges.

Effect: if you are damaged in combat, you suffer a -2 penalty on attacks rolls, skill checks, saving throws, and ability checks until you damage the foe who caused you harm. This penalty does not apply if you cannot discern the source of the damage. This penalty disappears when the combat ends.
