(BL: Talinor) Type: Mystical Creature Q/M Ratio 5:1 (QUEST) Armour: Two points natural, and up to four points of additional armor may be worn. Attacks: Any melee weapons and javelins. Abilities: 1) All weapons do a single point of damage to Angelic Hero (including magical weapons, relics, and siege weapons). 2) Immune to all forms of magic, including enchantments. This affects the Angelic Hero's items as well. 3) Immune to all forms of holding and control (including both magical and non- magical abilities). 4) Holy Weapon 1/life - Hero must tie a white cloth around the weapon and state "Holy Weapon" loudly. This gives the weapon the same abilities as either a bladesharp or bludgeon and works against all forms of shields and armor (including invulnerability armor, and armour like magics; also versus improve shield, enchanted shield, and protection from magic enchantment). *This does not work versus relics (ie. shield of protection and ring of power). The "Holy Weapon" is indestructible. This is a natural ability. 5) More abilities gained at later levels. Vulnerabilities: 1) The Angelic Hero is not undead and is not affected by spells or abilities that directly affect undead. The Angelic Hero is a spiritual being, however, and is moderately affected by sever spirit (it forces the Angelic Hero to suffer the affects of a lost spell for 300 count). 2) The Angelic Hero may not attack unless provoked. Garb: White and gold tunic or tabard over armor. A golden phoenix on a white field must also be visible. Description: Angelic Heroes are the spirits of knights that have served their Lords and the Gods of Law and Order faithfully unto death, where they joined the realms of their god and became the god's chosen champion. They are some times sent down from the realms of the gods to aid faithful mortals in dire need, to guard an object of tremendous power (to keep it from falling into the wrong hands) or to combat an evil that is too great for mankind to vanquish alone. Angelic Heroes are very rare. They generally appear as majestic knights in glowing white armor and garb. Lives: 2 Levels: 1st As above 2nd Gains the ability to Heal self 1/life as per Paladin heal ability. 3rd May bestow immunities to magic with 1 person in physical contact 1/life. 4th Heal ability useable on self or others 2/life. 5th Resurrect 1/life as per Paladin ability. 6th 1 additional life, 3 total. Notes: Concerning the 2nd vulnerability, not attacking unless provoked, this generally means an opponent must attempt to strike first. Provoked does not mean using lame excuses to join combat (ie. "he was breathing my air, so I killed him" is not an appropriate response). Because of this vulnerability, playing a Angelic Hero may get boring, in terms of combat (all the more reason to roleplay).

Abilities: 1) Must play a regular class with the Darklord monster abilities added. May only play at the level that he has already attained in the class played and is allowed use of that classes abilities. Due to this, Darklord has no level ascension. 2) Limited Regeneration - The Darklord has a limited form of regeneration. He may regenerate from death in a 100 count.

Once there, the opponent may either become a minion on the Darklord's team, or drop out of the game. Becoming a minion is permanent and may not be reversed. Note: The Darklord is not undead, but the Minion is. The minion must now play the remainder of his/her lives on the Darklord team. The minion plays these lives as per the class he/she was playing when captured as normal. The minion is affected by spells that affect undead, with the exception of spells that negate undeath. Vulnerabilities: 1) The Darklord has no real vulnerabilities, but when possible should be killed by magic so he/she must return to base to come back to life. 2) If the Darklord is playing a magic using class, his/her spells run out as normal.

Description: Darklords are particularly evil individuals. They want to rule the world and have the means to do it. Darklords exude an evil aura (Remember, roleplaying evil does not mean being an a--hole on the field). In general appearance, Darklords hardly differ from any other individual of the civilized races. They do, however, occasionally babble to themselves about being evil and taking over the world. Lives: Unlimited Levels: None Notes: The Darklord is a monster particular to a special scenario (ie. The Darklord Scenario) and should not be used outside of that scenario. The Darklord scenario is geared towards the Darklord team winning, and the Darklord's power generally reflects that. The Darklord and his minions must identify themselves as Darklords or minions when asked.

Description: Extra-planar entities come in as many forms as they have names: Demons, devils, daemons, Great Old Ones, and their like are all mythological examples of the horrid forms of life that come from realms beyond our own. Their powers are legion and their forms are awesome to behold but, for all their terrible splendor, these beings are destined to be destroyed by the powers of light. Rarely do two entities have the same powers but they all seem to have one thing in common; they seem to draw heros to themselves. Normally, Entities seek to destroy those that seek them out, but eventually a champion will strike the foul creature down.

Therefore, it is advisable that only higher level players with experience in magic-using classes or monster class portray these beings and that it only be used against very experienced players. This monster was specifically created to present a challenge to higher level players who know the weaknesses of any monster they would normally encounter.

The player does NOT give the equipment to the Gypsy. This ability does not work on Game Items, Garb, Armor, Enchanted Shields, or any item that is in use when the Gypsy Chant began. (example, a warrior engaged in combat cannot have his sword stolen, but if the warrior is just standing around, sword in hand, it can be stolen.

Must hold a yellow ribbon in hand and say "I foresee a disaster"x10 and tie the ribbon to the recipient, will negate only one (1) physical hit or magical attack. Usable oneself, or another.

(GS: Vaargard) Type: Mystical Creature Q/M Ratio 8:1 (QUEST) Armour: 6 points Attacks: 1 long swords per 'head' 1 flail treated as red weapons, (see Notes on Play below) Abilities: 1) Invulnerability 2) Unlimited use of a breath weapon as per Dragon (at higher level) 3) Scare 2/life, as per Wraith. 5) 'Tail' may fight after death as per Barbarian regardless of cause of death (exception - Sphere of Annihilation). The tail is automatically considered dead if all 'head's are slain. Garb: Scales and metallic fabrics. Description: Hydra are huge, usually reptilian, monsters invariably equipped with two or more 'head's. Hydra are uncommon in civilized lands. They are always vicious and hungry and wreak havoc upon their surroundings and are rumored to live indefinitely if not slain by violence. Even grizzled veterans balk at the prospect of facing the smallest hydra. It has been recorded that Hydra were once commonly bound into service as guardians by powerful mages and some fulfill their forgotten roles to this day. The magic used to bind these creatures has been lost to the ages, but rumors persist of mages that still posses the knowledge to harness the power of these monsters. Notes: Hydra are huge and chaotic so they are best played by several players tied at the waist (usually 10 -20 feet between individual 'appendages') to form the beast. It is usual for there to be a from 2 to 8 ''head's' (Long sword and spell balls if needed) and a 'tail' (an individual with a flail or long sword) though other combinations are possible dependant upon the size of the Hydra (and the amount of rope available!) Each person has armor equal to the total given to the level of the Hydra (i.e. In the case of a level 1 Hydra, a ''head'' has 6 points of armor and the 'tail' has 6 points of armor of his/her own.) Unlike normal rules of combat, any strike to a 'part' of a behemoth removes a point of armor. For example- if the 'left arm' whom has 6 points of armor is hit in the leg he/she would lose a part of overall armor and thus be reduced to 5 armor points. If the same 'left arm' is struck again, this time in the torso , he would be reduced to 4 points of armor, and so on. upon losing all his/her armor and being slain, a body part should drop his weapon or separate himself from the 'body'. If all the 'head's are killed, the tail will fight on for 10 seconds before the signal reaches it that it too is dead. It is possible for Hydra to run but it is a rare occurrence for several reasons: In reality a Hydra is much like a three-legged race with several people involved and it takes considerable effort from a ''head'' to convince the other ''head's' that he/she knows the best way to reach their objective. Lives: 1 Levels: 1st One 'head' may use any first level bolt spell (unlimited usage, need only state "name of bolt"x3). 2nd As above 3rd One 'head' may use any second level bolt spell (unlimited usage, need only state "name of bolt"x3). ('Head' may be different from 'head' using 1st level bolt) 4th As above 5th One 'head' may use any dragon breath of choice (unlimited usage, need only state "name of bolt"x3). ('Head' may be different from 'head' using 1st or second level bolt) 6th Regeneration (as per troll) or Hypnotic Gaze [Stun spell (unlimited usage, duration special-see note), but Barbarians and Monks 3rd level or above are immune]. 1) The latter ability is considered non-magical and may be 'disrupted' by inflicting damage to the victim (ie- leg or arm shot). This represents one of the 'head's having the ability to transfix an opponent with its gaze. Any 'head' using this ability must maintain visual contact with his target. If the 'head' averts its gaze, then the target is immediately freed. Only one 'head' may use this power at any given time. Does not affect those immune to Charm magics. 2) Hydra are huge rampaging monsters that should take lots of people (and lots of lives!) to halt. It is best used as a 'bash the beastie' or introductory mini-adventure. Perhaps the local shire is called out to prevent or slow down the creature's advance or the city sends out the militia to defend itself. It is suggested that no less than 20 people be faced with a Hydra and that a healer be available to the players.
