Chosen of Velsharoon
Creating a Chosen of Velsharoon
“Chosen of Velsharoon” is a +4 template that can be added to any humanoid or intelligent undead. A Chosen of Velsharoon uses all the base character’s statistics and special abilities except as noted. A Chosen of Velsharoon only has its power at the will of Velsharoon; should the Archmage of Necromancy decide to remove Chosen status from a character, he or she reverts to their old abilities.
In one of his few un-selfish acts before he went back to his research the arch mage of necromancy appointed a lieutenant to organize and reward Faeruinian worshipers.
The Chosen of Velsharoon has the following abilities:
SU: Exalted research; the chosen may grant a bonus to particularly devout necromantic researchers. The chosen can only help as many researchers as her intelligence bonus. Researchers gain the following benefits: +2 Intelligence, +2 Knowledge (Arcana), +2 Heal (primarily for the anatomy knowledge) and most importantly a permanent non-detection spell cast by Velsharoon himself.
SU: Enhance undead; when the chosen is involved in the creation of undead that specific undead gains the following benefits: +4 AC, +2 HD, +4 Int and the ability to evolve and gain power when they kill clerics of Cyric, Jergal and Kelemvor. (How far they can evolve is left to each GM)
Special Qualities: The Chosen Velsharoon retains all their special qualities.
