Background Edit

Rurdev grew up in a matriarchal society. He was one of his tribes great warriors, hunting down the tribes enemies and well as defending their priestess from harm. All was good for him, until he helped his patron, his mother, assault the tribes leadership. She had him convinced that they were leading them to their destruction and the only way out was to kill their corrupt leaders. Rurdev's mother was wrong, and he attempted to assassinate the old priestess that lead the tribe and he failed. She nearly killed him, and she also killed his mother in retribution for going against the wisdom of the tribe. Instead of executing Rurdev, the high priestess exiled him, sending him away, until he could trust those who he should.

Appearance and personality Edit

Age: 25
Gender: Male
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 164 lb.
Alignment: unaligned
Personality: Rurdev is a gentleman is the presence of women. He gives them the most respect and would not harm them in the slightest. When in the presence of only males, he lets himself go, thinking of ale, food, and gambling. His stutter sets him apart, but it doesn't keep him from being gentlemanly. He often licks his lips while speaking, nothing more than a nervous habit.
Appearance: Rurdev's hair is dark and worn long and loose. His dark skin, eyes and hair are in direct contrast to the light color of his finemail armor, which was taken from a band of thieves. A heavy and shining battleaxe is at each hip. One is adorned with bloodstones on the haft. The other has a lightning motif and smells of ozone. Several javelins poke over his shoulder, as well as the handles of three scimitars. Rurdev is heavily muscled but still relatively light on his feet.

Hooks Edit

  • Enemy of Daunton's wererat gang
  • Considered an ally of the Northtown Knicks
  • Considered an ally of Captain Coppernail, of the Merchants of Baccarte
  • Deemed an enemy of the Gearhouse Gang
  • Declared a member of "The Five"

Recent HistoryEdit

Rurdev was hired by a sage to retrieve a statue that was stolen from a banished member from Rurdev's tribe. The group chased off a young boy from the hovel and with further investigation found the old shifter's ancestral scimitar, which Rurdev took as a family heirloom. The shifter, along with his companions, found that their search took them into the sewers where they were set upon by abberant montrosities. After fighting through the abberant horde, they came upon a portal to an alien place and couldn't shut it. They were soon interrupted by the same boy from the shifter's home and chased him. Back on the surface a fight broke out when the boy was revealed to be a changeling. Wererats were among the opponents in the battle, but victory was on their side. The statue was recovered from the changeling and taken to the sage. The statue was the key to shutting the portal which they did.

The shifter's next adventure came when trying to do some honest work, investigate the a missing warforged near the theaterhouse. After getting inside, the adventurers were set upon by the "actors" in the play. They found the missing warforged under the stage along with strange glowing creatures of energy and goblin thieves. Upon the release of the warforged to the one who hired them, they found themselves in the middle of a gang war. The group ended the fight promptly. After the fight in the theater Coppernail hired the group to guard the theater opening night. That night, the theater was attack by more of the glowing orb creatures and cherubs. The two huge statues that were near the stage came to life as well and were fought off succesfully.

Rurdev now followed his able companion Incarnation, in aid of a quest of his, something about a warden...

Judge Comments Edit

Approval 1 Edit

1 Approval from Halford,


1.) Stealth bonus was listed as 6 up top, but should be 7 and was correctly shown as such below. Edited.

2.) Longtooth Shifting was missing the to my mind important caveat "for as long as you are bloodied.", added.

3.) The templates for Judges comments and Equipment had become oddly reversed so I cut and pasted the sections from another character sheet and retyped your information.


1.) In the description you describe his scimitars thusly, "A pair of glinting scimitars are at each hip." To my mind this makes it seem like he should have four scimitars two on each hip. Not a big deal, but you might want to rephrase it a little.

Approval 2 Edit

2. Approval from --Graf 02:22, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Attributes cost/bonuses correct, batt OK, def ok, def ok, saves ok, senses & skills OK, feats OK, health ok, encumbrance/gold spent ok, Powers OK.

Aside: Two-Fanged Strike can technically be used with missile weapons, so you could add an extra line (like the one you have in Two-Weapon) but I don't think it's necessary.

Approval 1 for level 2Edit

Approval from --Atanatotatos

Seems fine aside from a couple minor things: -Is the 1 scimitar in your off-hand or main hand? If it's in your main hand, your dmg for twin strike should be 1d8+2/1d8(not 1d8+1/1d8+1); if it's in your off-hand, your dmg for jaws of the wolf should be 1d8+5/1d8+5(not 1d8+6/1d8+4); Hit and run would be affected, too. Your basic attack line lists 1d8+5 as your dmg. -You're missing the hp math. The hp in the summary, however, is correct. -You might want to include the lightning scimitar's power, though it's nt really important.

Nothing major, so I approve him for lvl 2. Needs one more.

Approval 2 for level 2Edit

Approval from TwoHeadsBarking

Ok, assuming I'm understanding Two Weapon Fighting and Two-Blade Fighting Style properly, and that you're always holding a melee weapon in each hand, here's how it should be:

  • Since javelins are melee weapons, they fulfill Two Weapon Fighting, and your damage with them should be 1d6+5.
  • If you're main handing the magic sword, your basic melee should be +8 and 1d8+6. Otherwise it should be +7 and 1d8+5.
  • What Ata said about Twin Strike and Jaws of the Wolf, although for the latter I'm sure he meant those to be 2d8s.
  • Also, Jaws of the Wolf attack should be +8/+7 (or +7/+8, depending on where the magic sword is).

In addition to not having the hp table, you're also missing the Senses and Reactions table. Also, since Shifters are now official player races, you get to learn another language. None of this is a big deal, so Rurdev's approved.

Approval from renau1g

  • Wow...Snarling Wolf Stance is an awesome power & Bloodfury lets you activate your regen right off the bat in a fight?

Approval 2 for level 5Edit

Approval from TwoHeadsBarking:

  • Summary/Defenses: You should put your Force resist in the Resist fields.
  • Summary: I don't understand why you aren't using your main hand for your basic attacks, Marauder's Rush, and Disruptive Strike. Aren't you just losing a point of damage? What do you gain?
  • Summary: You may want to put the powers from the Lightning Axe in here too.

Minor, so approved.
