A Cadre of Heroes at 5th Level

This set of characters will be featured in upcoming Unicorn Rampant adventures that I run at conventions as available PCs. These characters at this level were used to playtest The Old Rock Tower, and once I finish advancing them to 10th level, they will be used at conventions (such as ProtoCon, this weekend in College Station, TX) for The Horror of the Old Ones and The Curse of Castle Stieglitz, both being released in time for Halloween.

In the meantime, feel free to use them as you see fit in your games. Just a little tweaking and they could be used singly or in groups as interesting adversaries for players anywhere from 1st to 9th level. Enjoy!

Aeonados, half silver dragon/half elf ranger 2

One of a clutch of 5 offspring to a silver dragon, and her lover, a powerful elven druid in the northern reaches beyond the Danor Mountains. Aeonados has fine, tough silver scales covering his body, vestigial wings, a short tail, and an impressive frill running from his forehead and down his neck that raises when he is angry. He and his siblings were pushed out of the nest at a young age (60 or so), as is typical for dragons. In the fifty years since he has wandered the wild lands on the north shore of the Soral Sea, until meeting and becoming fast friends with Winnie (as she fled the law), who he is teaching about the ways of the wild lands, as he knows nothing of the cities.

Terin Goldwrit, dwarf wizard 5

Terin is very proud of his new wand, which he recently crafted, but like many dwarves is stingy and hoarding (frugal, he would say), so is torn between showing it off and saving it's power, and the investment it represents. He is from a family of metalsmiths, particularly jewelery makers. Is not happy about the amount of gold he had to spend to make his new wand, and is looking to find some more.

Kylisa, female half-elf bard 5

Juggling, shadow puppets, mime, and dancing are what most know Kylissa for. She physically favors her elven blood, and is very small and pixiesh, to the point where she is often mistaken for an elf or halfling. She faces the world with a wry smile, a darting gaze and a clever comment.

Once or twice she has put on a particularly spectacular performance with her friend Yamarra, who is a slightly lighter side to Kylisa's darker sense of humor.
