Back Story
Rufus is blonde haired and blue eyed, with coffee brown, heavily freckled skin from his lifetime spent outdoors. Rufus may not be overly smart, he can count to 4 if he wants to. He spend alot of time catching rabbits when Hobbit school was in but he did learn a trade...
Rufus grow up with his cousin Wibert. They both enjoyed raiding goblin lairs, borrowing items from folk who didn't need them anymore. Even visiting people at odd hours and finding them not home to do some stealing picking of stuff they didn't use. Why would you lock away coin in a box and forgot about it. They would just go clean up a house for free. Sometimes people would forgot to leave a key out so they had to pick the lock. It was all for a good cause he told himself.
Rufus made the name for himself as "the quick" which is a reference to his skill as a "Locksmith extraordinaire".
Now people where not nice to Rufus and some said some bad words. Rufus has killed his fair share of goblins/kobalts and is quite good with his weapons. He felt misunderstood so he decides to join Wibert for a adventures life.

Boon

A one foot long smoking pike, a pouch of the best Longbottom pipe weed, and a compact little "tinder box" (the size of his thumb) which will produce a tiny flame on demand -- enough to light his pipe.

Thief Definition:

A thief must be dexterous and clever. When attacking with surprise he rolls 1 extra damage die for every odd level he has attained, but is limited to light arms -- club, dagger, hammer, hand axe, hand crossbow, short bow, short sword, sling, staff, whip. While he wears only light armour and eschews both shield and helm a thief also enjoys the following benefits; When operating in an urban or dungeon environment he surprises enemy 4 times in 6, is surprised only 1 time in 6 himself, has 4 chances in 6 of performing any feat of subterfuge or of locating secret or concealed objects, and adds +2 to saving throws that require quick reflexes. A thief also earns +50% XP bonus loot acquired in secret (i.e., not divided fairly among the other players).

Thieves throw one additional damage die per level when striking from behind or with surprise with a melee weapon.

Spellbooks

The Libretto Hermetica a spellbook bound and decorated by living autumn leaves. It contains the following five spells:

The Effable Apperception : Enables the caster or touched recipient to comprehend glyphs and inscriptions written in languages otherwise unknown. It enables a spell caster to comprehend (and thereafter memorise and/or cast) an unknown spell. It does not, however, solve written puzzles or imbue any ability to communicate verbally. The magic lasts long enough to comprehend one spell, or otherwise for as long as the recipient concentrates upon the symbols to be deciphered.

The Scandent Avocation : So long as the caster goes bare-footed and -handed, he can scale vertical walls easily at 12", and even cling to ceilings with only three of his appendages, or move across such at 6" with all four. However, his normal, upright movement rate is reduced to 9". The enchantment lasts until shoes or gloves are put on, or sun up.

The Prepotent Capriole : Enables the caster (or touched subject) to make one or more great leaps totalling 10-60ft plus 10ft per caster level. Jumps may be in any direction, but at least 10ft headroom is required per 30ft distance forward. Upward leaps costs double distance. The leaper will land soundly upon his or her feet and not suffer harm, even were he to leap down a 60ft ravine. Assuming initiate, a leap of sufficient distance will enable one to escape melee combat without recourse.

The Infinitesimal Summons : This spell calls forth up to 3d6 + caster level tiny creatures such as mice, bats, sparrows, frogs, or insects. These typically have 1 or 2 hp and are non-combative, but will provide whatever aid they can to the caster.

The Mellifluent Concord : The magic-user's voice becomes magically persuasive. 2d6 + caster level HD worth of intelligent humanoids accept any reasonable suggestion as a promising idea to be enacted as soon as is practical. Unintelligent monsters, undead, and those with more HD than the caster has levels are not affected. Lasts for a turn, or until dispelled.

Scrolls

The Eerie Lambent : This spell creates a host of 1d6 + caster level animated, levitating candle flames. The Eerie Lambent moves as a whole where magic-user desires, darting back and forth at pace, turning corners and navigating openings. It may attract attention, frighten animals, illuminate a passage, and so on, but winks out of existence if ever it strays further than 100ft from the caster or when the caster rests or is hit.

The Irascible Leer : The magic-user's eyes glow with a supernatural fire for up to an hour, and project a dull orange beam of light to 60ft in the direction he looks. He sees as if by lantern light to this range. Additionally, the red beam will be uncomfortably hot upon flesh, causing 1 hit point of damage every other round, and igniting paper of fabric after three rounds, and firewood after a full turn.

Known and Memorized Spells


The Dissimulation:
~~The subject (person or object) continually changes colour to match its surroundings, becoming difficult (but not impossible) to see until the magic is "washed away" with water, or until the magic-user next rests. An Object or hiding person is hidden much as a secret door, and a person is able to sneak much as would a thief (but note he is not silenced by this spell).

The Effable Apperception:
~~Enables the caster or touched recipient to comprehend glyphs and inscriptions written in languages otherwise unknown. It enables a spell caster to comprehend (and thereafter memorise and/or cast) an unknown spell. It does not, however, solve written puzzles or imbue any ability to communicate verbally. The magic lasts long enough to comprehend one spell, or otherwise for as long as the recipient concentrates upon the symbols to be deciphered.

The Exigent Secernment:
~~Enables the magic-user to perceive the presence of magic with a precision similar to the mundane ability to detect a scent or perfume. It does not reveal the nature of the magic, nor its exact source, merely that magic is present. The spell lasts as long as the magic-user concentrates upon the location, object or creature to be scrutinised, after which he must have water or suffer 1d6.

The Rhyme of Exiguous Glamour:
~~Creates an illusion of any form the magic-user desires up to a Man-like volume or bulk per caster level. The glamour must augment something real, or else be limited in some significant way (e.g., sound only, silent image, two-dimensional image) if it is entirely fictitious. The glamour is animated only so long as the magic-user is nearby and concentrates upon it, otherwise it is absolutely still. Anyone examining the glamour closely, or in full daylight, may test his wisdom to see through it, and if successful he may dispel the illusion simply by touching it. Otherwise the magic lasts until dismissed or the magic-user next rests.

The Scandent Evocation:
~~So long as the caster goes bare-footed and -handed, he can scale vertical walls easily at 12", and even cling to ceilings with only three of his appendages, or move across such at 6" with all four. However, his normal, upright movement rate is reduced to 9". The enchantment lasts until shoes or gloves are put on, or sun up.

The Stillicidious Cheval:
~~Causes a thin (1") sheet of ice to crystalise out of the air in mere seconds. The ice will freeze over a doorway or similarly sized area as the caster desires. The cheval is semi-opaque, reflective and slippery, as is ice. It can be hack away with a pick or axe, as could normal ice, or else will eventually melt away in 1-6 turns (depending on the ambient temperature).


Jan can memorise any two 1st level spells each day.

Wealth: None

Gerar of Szil possesses The Chimerical Onomasticon, a black velvet sheaved tome that contains the following enigmas...

The Effable Apperception (prepared):
Enables the caster or touched recipient to comprehend glyphs and inscriptions written in languages otherwise unknown. It enables a spell caster to comprehend (and thereafter memorise and/or cast) an unknown spell. It does not, however, solve written puzzles or imbue any ability to communicate verbally. The magic lasts long enough to comprehend one spell, or otherwise for as long as the recipient concentrates upon the symbols to be deciphered.

The Eerie Lambent:
This spell creates a host of 1d6 + caster level animated, levitating candle flames. The Eerie Lambent moves as a whole where magic-user desires, darting back and forth at pace, turning corners and navigating openings. It may attract attention, frighten animals, illuminate a passage, and so on, but winks out of existence if ever it strays further than 100ft from the caster or when the caster rests or is hit.

The Proposterous Foment:
2d6 hit dice +1 hit dice per caster level worth of creatures with normal hearing must save versus a concussive blast of sound or be stunned for a full round. Even those that save are deafened for 1d6 rounds. Creature with especially sharp ears save at -4, and ordinary animals may be panicked at the referee's discretion. Torches are 2 in 6 likely to be extinguished, candles 4 in 6. The spell is indiscriminate, affecting friend and foe alike.

The Scandent Evocation :
So long as the caster goes bare-footed and -handed, he can scale vertical walls easily at 12", and even cling to ceilings with only three of his appendages, or move across such at 6" with all four. However, his normal, upright movement rate is reduced to 9". The enchantment lasts until shoes or gloves are put on, or sun up.

The Genuflect Yaw:
2d6 hp +1 hp per caster level worth of timber equipment is comprehensively warped and ruined by a mere gesture. If the caster can touch the object to be so careened he instead rolls 4d6. A stout wooden door has 12 hp, or 20 hp if reinforced with iron bindings. Shields, spears, crossbows and the like have 2 hp. Arrows have but 1 hp each. Missiles affected in flight (due to simultaneous initiative) suffer a -4 attack penalty.


Gerar can memorise exactly two spells per day. He can also purchase additional copies of the above spells for 25sp each during character creation only.

Gerar's boon shall be an exquisite bottle of red wine -- an 1134 vintage Ermitagje Ensemble; renowned to be one of the finest wines ever produced by the Duke of Maine's legendary, and now retired, personal vintner, Hedwig Elmery IV. The bottle is perfectly aged to 15 years and primed for sumptuous drinking and will fill six generous drinking horns.
