Special Powers:

  • Whenever a Hillsfarran successfully attacks a target from behind, he deals double normal damage (or adds 1 to his damage multiplier if he has the rogue’s Backstab ability).
  • A wizard’s lifespan is extended by his constant exposure to the arcane. The wizard’s maximum lifespan increases by an amount equal to five times his level. He still suffers the effects of aging at the same rate as other members of his race. This can be further extended through the use of certain spells and magic items.

Story: see Silren’s Journal

Background:
Silren is from Hillfar. His mother and father were merchant mages. They were upscale grocers by trade and while they had a physical store in the city, they often made trips to other communities in the Moonsea area, where he grew a prejudice to just about anything that could be a threat to his personal safety. His father often beat him; his mother was no better. Not to say they didn’t provide for him. He was a smart lad and very capable of carrying a grudge… and since he was ridiculed for his looks he often stewed in grumpy hate. He excelled in his schooling and it didn’t take long for him to gain the attention of those looking for wizard apprentices. He hated the work however. Power was more important. By the time he started a proper apprenticeship, his mother and father both passed in a fire that may or may not have been arson. Silren inherited the remains of their business, sold what they had left and focused completely on absorbing more arcane knowledge. Some of his duties as a wizard apprentice included working with Red Plume Patrols that needed magic detection and support while reporting to his Cabal.

This is the local knowledge of Silren. What isn’t known is that one time whilst travelling with his parents, they had unwittingly camped a top an ancient burial mound, where a long dead wizard’s spirit (Manos, by name) had approached the boy in the night, whispering secrets in hopes for mortal blood. A small pact was made, a few drops spilt to slake the foul being’s thirst. For much of his teenage years he made pilgrimage to the spot exchanging both his blood or the blood of others to gain more arcane insight and other stories that may make him stronger. The spirit was demanding however and eventually Silren cut off from the foul thing. More recently, Silren has had a near death experience. In his thirst for power, he read from a scroll he believed was going to unlock new evocations, but instead was trapped with explosive runes. While he survived, his face is horribly scarred and has not healed well… He has heard stories from the blood spirit: of ancient magics near Phlan and has decided to investigate in person. He has felt the need to come into his own as a wizard and has filed all the necessary paperwork for a transfer to Phlan. It was accepted mainly because of some light blackmail on his part.
