Dunstrand Rising - Gallants Ride Again
Taelin Mar Shaldis
Son of Shaldis – his father Shaldis was an Elf from the Pale Plains, and his Human mother, Leanna Lintroth, was from Poelitz (I believe).
Description: (Size = 11) Pale creamy white skin, white body hair, very bright and piercing solid deep purple eyes, Elven ears, thick lush flowing long white hair that I occasionally dye all sorts of colors, based on moods and whims. but also especially to keep camouflaged. Light glow from Radiance Bond.
Woven or braided in hair feathers of all sorts and colors, flowers, and/or garlands of leaves and vines, whatever can be found according to whim, though feathers are a pretty sure thing. Parents taught him and his brother how to do this so they could be more bonded to the natural world around us.
When at rest, he has pierced elven ears with many smaller earrings throughout the tops and middle of both ears and his favorites are two big hoop earnings for his lobes that were a gift from his parents years ago (no real value, just sentimental value); when “at risk”, the glittering bands are replaced with wwoden plugs to reduce reflecting light and noise.
8pt Small Heavy Bow he gained while in the Darklands.
Leather – Fandelkrayne 7/72
Medium Shield 36/120
Gravewald’s Ax – Once wielded by Taer Oshman and Seconds. Requirements: STR 4, RCT 3. Common Effects: +1 CS vs.Orrish (all actions).

AM 4, base dmg = 11, – 2 init (slower); pulverizing (x2 damage vs shields, armor, materials). These are from the scores of axes blessed by an elven priestess of Gaia who imbued the axes with special powers against the Orrish from the Tale of Gravewald’s Courage. It is a nondescript axe, with no distinguishing marks upon it except the soft blueish tint to the steel and a single inscribed leaf symbol with becomes barely visible when it strikes a target of Orrish blood. It is known to home in on those of said blood, and be lighter than normal. (Carried by Taelin).
Ork Hater – Broken Scimitar (Equals Dagger: 2AM, Damage 4, Familiarity Swords OR Blades to use) from Black Omen Hall – Fiend of Desire 9CHA: it guides the hand who wields. +1 CS vs Orrish, and +1 additional point of damage to Orrish per round per wound. Negates unadaptive grip. Spend 1 CHA to prevent a disarm maneuver (?) against wielder. 1 CHA to force opponent to reroll a death blow. (Carried by Taelin).
+1 Ring of Evade, from Black Omen Hall (Carried by Taelin).
Satchel of Mog: ENC=8; hold 30 books; +4 resist damage; 1/week restores mana = RSN of the bearer. (Carried by Taelin)
