Offense Traits

  • Weapon Familiarity: Members of this race are proficient with bows and katanas.


  • Fairy Blood: Ellar cannot lie in any language. Their bluff check instead becomes how well they can hide their true intent with double-speak or subtly slipped words.
  • Fairy Soul: An ellar’s full name – given name, taken name, family name – acts like a spell when clearly spoken to them, followed by a command. The ellar is allowed a will save (DC= 20 + (Caster level – Target’s class level)) to resist the command. Immunity to compulsions granted from class levels or other magic does not block this effect but does grant a +10 to the check and prevents critical fails. Failure means the ellar is forced by compulsion to complete the task, even if doing so would be harmful to themselves or those they care about. An example being a level 2 human sorcerer attempting to dominate a level 15 ellar wizard. DC 20 + (2-15), or 20-13, or DC 7 to resist the command. Conversely, a level 10 human fighter commanding a level 5 ellar ranger would be DC 20 +( 10-5), or 20 + 5, or DC 25 to resist the command.
