Charm Person
Target: One nearby creature with 40 hp or fewer
Special: This spell cannot be cast in combat or on a target that has rolled initiative to fight.
Attack: Charisma + Level vs. MD
Hit: The target believes you are their friend until
you or your allies take hostile action against them (attacking their normal allies is okay). The spell works best as a type of pacifier; if you or your allies attack the target or order the target to attack its normal allies, the target can roll a normal save to break the charm effect during its turn each round.
Special: On a miss, the spell is not detectible by most others unless you miss by 4+ or roll a natural 1, in which case the target and its allies knows what you tried to do and will usually be angry about it.

. Recharge check is now 6+. The effect also provides a +1 bonus to Mental Defense.

Adventurer Tier: Gain a +4 bonus to Initiative checks.
Adventurer Tier: If your campaign cares about languages, this is the feat you take to speak enough arcana, dwarven, elven, gnomish, gnoll, goblin, orcish, and other standard humanoid languages to comprehend enough of what most other humanoids are saying or screaming during battle. You are probably not fluent in all these languages, no one will mistake you for a native speaker, and your vocabulary is probably adventurer-centric, heavy on words connected to danger rather than philosophy or emotions. But if it’s important to your character and it matches your backgrounds and story, sure, go ahead and be fluent in a few.
You can also read enough to get by in all these languages.


Anna Lynn is tall. Let me rephrase that, she is long. Long hair, long arms, long fingers, looong legs, long leather pants, long sleeve black leather shirt, long lyre.

The long black leather shirt and black leather pants are worn skin tight. Her long hair is either braided in a long pony tail or left hanging around her shoulders. Her sharp features and hard angles make her seem less approachable than she is. She tends to be obliviously arrogant and a bit selfish at times which may be from living the life of a rock star.

Anna was born into a family of spell casters. Her father was a notable wizard who longed to see her become a great sorcerer; however, Anna’s love of music took over and she strayed from the family tradition and rebelliously became a bard. As an adolescent, Anna ran away from her family to the Royal Bardic Academy. There she studied hand pipes and lyre as well as ballad writing, vocal projection, and storytelling. Her father is still hopeful that one day his daughter will join the ranks of the great spell casters.

Anna is in her early 30s and has a bit of a following, on account of that one hit song she had a little over a year ago. You may have heard of it. “I Killed That Ogre Dead”. The way she tells it, the song was penned on the blood soaked battle field right after she saved a half dead barbarian from a foul smelling ogre. There are nay sayers that have attempted to discredit the accomplishment, but her loyal followers believe the story whole heartedly and with fervor. The cult following has gained her access to some of the most prestigious places, including many a King’s court. Still there are those who don’t even know her name.
