Quest in the Cathedral starts this week with all new level two characters. That means we have a new batch of custom pre-generated character sheets lined up for you!
The first custom pre-generated character sheets that we released for Crown of the Lich King worked well for everyone, but some of them were designed to be best utilized by ‘light’ sided characters. The second batch of pre-generated character sheets that we release for Wyrd of the Wild Wood fit well for players that wanted to chose a darker path such as a prisoner escaping Darkskye. Ultimately it is up to the player to determine their character is by developing backgrounds, Icon relationships and their one unique things. This time around we’ve created a mixed bag.
These pre-generated characters are as follows: Wood Elf Barbarian, Half Elf Bard, Holy One Cleric, Draconic Fighter, Forgeborn Paladin, Human Ranger, Gnome Rogue, Demontouched Sorcerer and Dark Elf Wizard.
The first thing that is notable in this list is the introduction of the optional races found in 13th Age: Holy One, Demontouched, Forgeborn and Draconic. These four races aren’t necessarily part of the world so make sure to check with your GM to make sure that race fits in the GM’s vision of the world. The third organized play adventure focuses on the Cathedral which houses all gods of light and their avatars, so we thought it would be a good opportunity to welcome all races to the table as all that seek the light are welcome in the Priestess’s eyes. See page 71 of the 13th Age book for more detail on these races. To make this a little more playful we have given the Sorcerer a familiar with the permanent ability Mimic which allows you to gain the racial power (without feats) of one nearby ally.
We also consider this a mixed bag because some of these characters take a step back from heavy damage output in order to highlight other class features. They instead focus on a good mix of durability, bonuses to skill checks, or abilities that draw from one class to the next. For example, since the first part of Quest in the Cathedral is titled Ranger Ex Cathedral it was only fitting to make a ranger with that ability. If heavy damage is your thing then don’t worry – we still have you covered! The wood elf barbarian with barbarian rage and elven grace can make for a nasty combo. The fighter’s power attack and racial breath weapon can add an additional boost of damage to an attack. As always the rogue, sorcerer and wizard pack a punch.
These character sheets are designed with two options: with a blank background or with character art background set at 30% opacity. Please note that the character artwork is not ours.
