Chosen of Shar

Chosen of Shar

Chosen of Shar are nihilists who seek to aid their patron in returning the world to perpetual darkness. They wait for the day when the deities will war again, Dendar will eat the sun, and the multiverse will end, plunging the multiverse in a state of twilight. It probably never occurred to any of the several that have existed over the centuries that their deity’s existence is paradoxical, and that she too will perish when the cosmos cease to be.

Creating a Chosen of Shar
“Chosen of Shar” is a template that can be added to any humanoid creature. A Chosen of Shar uses all the base character’s statistics and special abilities except as noted. A Chosen of Shar only has its power at the will of Shar; should the Dark Goddess decide to remove Chosen status from a character, he or she reverts to their old abilities.

Special Qualities: Chosen of Shar retain all their special qualities.

Bonus Spells (Sp): At will- darkness, bane, darkfire 5/day-cause fear, inflict moderate wounds, blindness/ deafness, vampiric touch, shadow walk 3/day-suggestion, enervation, shadow conjuration 1/day- energy drain, phantasmal killer, greater shadow evocation

Immunities (Ex): A Chosen of Shar is immune to energy drain of any kind, negative energy, and magical blindness. He or she is also immune to aging, does not age, and is effectively immortal.

Spell Resistance: Chosen of Shar have SR 15+character level against spells with the shadow and darkness descriptors. Even if the SR check succeeds, the Chosen only takes half damage from the spell.

Eyes of Night (Su): Chosen of Shar can see through any darkness, including magical darkness.

Weave Dispeller (Su): Chosen of Shar do not suffer the normal penalty someone with the Shadow Weave Magic feat suffers when trying to dispel Weave effects.

Black Fire (Su): Chosen can use Black Fire (identical to silver fire, but draws on Shadow Weave. Damage is half cold, half divine power. Deals 1 point of temporary wisdom drain if used more than 5 times per day for any purpose.)

Shadow Aura (Su): Weave spells cast within 15 ft. of the Chosen are at –1 caster level.

Shadow Army (Su): Once during her time as Chosen of Shar, the Chosen may fill a 300 square foot space with permanent darkness. All mortal creatures in the area must succeed at a Will Save (DC 25) or be slain and animate the next round as shadows under the Chosen’s control. There is no limit to the number of HD of shadows the Chosen may control with this ability. The darkness resists the dispel attempts of all mortals, and can only be removed by a deity using Alter Reality.

Bane of the Moon (Su): During the new moon, Chosen of Shar are expected to hit the Church of Selune hard. To aid them in their task, during this time they are granted the ability to use Teleport without error at will, as will as Finger of Death once per night at her own caster level.
