Hello folks! I’ve been super busy prepping books (some of which are out – get the 100 page $5 marvel that is Veranthea Codex: Radical Pantheon) and forgot about posting for a whole month!
To keep-on-keeping-on with the characters builds, I present to you Farrak Bakk, easily one of my favorite PCs.
Farrak is wholesale delusional – he believes that his powers are granted to him by the drow goddess Eilistraee, a dead deity who wouldn’t be handing out arcane magical ability anyway, and perhaps more importantly, he is always naked.
All the same, he (and it’s weird to say he because Farrak doesn’t recognize genders) is one of her most devout and faithful followers.
My GM for the game Farrak was in was very cool about this and to replicate the effect, he’s got the Old One warlock pact in place of a sorcerer bloodline.
