3.5 Elfsworn (Herregor Supplement)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The beings known as the elfsworn were once men who made a pact with a Faerie Lord or some other entity from the Feywild for power and immortality. They traded their souls for cobwebs and faerie glamour. To most of the world they are the stuff of legend or bogeymen. To those who are aware of their origins they are looked upon with suspicion.

They have no home land and do not gather in communities, instead choosing to skulk about the lands of men. It's rumored that some of them date back to the original Elfwars. If it is true these individuals would be truly terrifying, capable of wielding faerie glamours with an ability that would rival the Lords of the Feywild.

Elsworn are all unique in appearance. Some may be tall and lithe, with fair complexions and otherworldly beauty, while others may be short and twisted, with wide mouths full of sharp teeth and eyes that smolder in the dark.

One item all elfsworn have in common is that each is missing a piece of themselves, literally. Along with the soul, the Goblin Lord takes a portion of the body, sometimes replacing it with something else. It may be an eye, a finger, a hand, or even the heart. The elfsworn might have the eye of a snake or a cold, mechanical heart in the place of his own, or simply a gaping hole in the place of this part.
