As the rumble of the enemy's hoofbeats grows ever louder, a young halfling squire calmly kneels to retrieve a horseshoe from the dusty battlefield. He shuts his eyes and turns it over in his hands, seemingly oblivious to his own peril. He rises after a moment, eyes still closed, and hurls it toward the advancing army with all his might. Impossibly, it connects with the helmet of one of the soldiers, toppling him from his saddle and causing his horse to collide with its neighbor. One fallen soldier soon becomes three, then ten, twenty, fifty! In seconds, the entire offensive is in disarray. The halfling opens his eyes to a scene of utter confusion. He permits himself the faintest of smiles, then looses a battle cry and rushes to meet his foes.
In the darkness of the tunnel, a tiefling stops to catch her breath
A tychomancer is someone who manipulates luck to suit his will. Tychomancers can use their abilities to support allies or to inhibit the efforts of enemies. A skilled enough tychomancer can even hold his own against many enemies at once.
