Fluff Edit

Background Edit

Dorn's earliest memories invariably include images of a frowning mother and father. Why couldn't Dorn be like the other Half-Orc children in his small tribe? Dorn grew up in a group of proud warriors and fierce hunters. Very nimble, Dorn's relative lack of strength wouldn't have been a problem had he shown any interest at all in the ways of the bow or the dagger.

The painful truth was that Dorn, despite his heritage and despite the efforts of his parents and tribe, was not a warrior. His playmates teased and bullied him mercilessly for it. His shy and reasonable manner only egged them on the more.

Around the time Dorn reached the age of puberty, he awoke to find his hair had changed color from its typical brown to red. Not 'red' as humans describe red hair. We're talking the-molten-core-of-a-thousand-suns red. At first, Dorn was convinced this was yet another prank by one of his peers. But when he finally emerged from his hut to face the world, the looks on the others' faces seemed to show genuine surprise, and then great amusement.

They began to surround Dorn, teasing and poking as they were wont to do. When the first young Half-Orc laid hands on him, a blast of red flame surged from Dorn, burning his assailant. The group of children dispersed, yelling. Dorn was whisked away by the tribe elders shortly thereafter, and the head of the tribe pronounced him 'possessed' by magic. His parents, although none too pleased, felt some relief at receiving this official confirmation that their son was not normal.

As the days passed, Dorn's hair color changed in a different way each day. Icy-blue, black as death, white as a cloud - each change in his hair also produced changes in his mood, and strange magical happenings. His peers stopped teasing him altogether, fearful of his power, and Dorn enjoyed his new found respect, even if it did not earn him any friends.

When Dorn reached the age of maturity, the tribe did not know what to do with him. Unschooled in magic and uncomfortable having such a volatile and unpredictable one in their midst, they were greatly relieved when Dorn expressed his desire to see the world.

Dorn is on a mission to find his true place, to seek adventure, and to learn to harness his power. While he would never admit it, he also seeks acceptance, and a measure of true friendship.

Appearance and personality Edit

Age: 18
Gender: Male
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 160lb.
Alignment: Unaligned
Hair Color: Varies, depending on the whim of the elements Personality: Dorn is a bit of a drama queen, and enjoys reveling in (and greatly exaggerating) the changes wrought by chaotic magic to his appearance and mood. He is young and enthusiastic, and is thrilled to be in a city filled with citizens of various races and professions. He is unusually kind for a Half-Orc, and greatly values common decency and respect.

Werebat Boon Edit

(Boon gained in Tale of Two Domains adventure)

Always Active Benefit:You gain combat advantage against any enemy flanked by your allies. (remember enemies granting combat advantage does not necessarily mean they are being flanked) You gain 5 vulnerability to cold iron. *DM note: Generally this will not come into play*

At-will power Body of the Bat At-Will * Polymorph, Primal, Shadow Standard Action Personal

Effect:You change your form to the form of a tiny bat raven or vice versa.

When in bat form you retain your normal game statics but cannot attack, you have fly speed equal to 1/2 your speed and gain blindsight 5. You also gain a +10 to bluff checks to pose as a bat while in bat form. You cannot speak any languages you know, but you can communicate with bats (remember that some may have animal intelligence). You continue to gain benefit from your equipment, except item powers and shields, but you cannot access any objects in containers or remove any equipment as it becomes part of you. You cannot use any of your weapons or implements (but still retain the passive bonuses.) You drop anything you were holding (besides shields, weapons or implements).

Special:You can only use this once per round. Using any other power with the Polymorph keyword ends this power.

Daily Power: Soul of the Bat Daily * Polymorph, Primal, Shadow Minor Action Personal

Effect:You change into a hybrid bat/(your race) form until the end of the encounter. You can communicate with bats (remember that some may have animal intelligence). You retain all equipment, armor and weapons and can use them normally. You also gain flight equal to your speed and blindsight 5.

You gain proficiency with your bite attack while in hybrid form. It deals 1d6 damage with a +3 proficiency and an enhancement bonus based on your primary weapon.

You can end hybrid form as a minor action. Using any other power with the Polymorph keyword ends this power.

Judge Comments Edit

Approval 1 Edit

Well, I've look you over and over and loaded you into the character builder to check math, and the only thing I can comment on is your lacking a Background, and that's optional.

I approve Dorn for level 1 DarwinofMind 23:46, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Approval 2 Edit

comments from covaithe:

  • probably worth putting Intimidate +6 in the summary, since it involves a racial bonus.
  • Furious assault is technically a free action, not no action. I'm not sure this ever makes any difference, but it might someday.
  • cloth armor is just clothing; we don't traditionally make people pay for that. So you can have 1g back if you want.

Nothing serious there, so I approve Dorn for level 1.

Level 2 Edit

Approval 1 Edit



  • Feats - missing level 2 feat from summary
  • Bedeviling Burst - please remove the dex modifier wording, just leave the bonus

Minor things though so:
