Play an Angel if you want...

  • To try to prove to the gods that you are worthy of the celestial plane.
  • Fly across the battle field raining down death or healing the wounded.
  • Be a powerful being often feared or revered by the people who raised them.
  • To be a member of a race that favors the Paladin, Warlord and Cleric classes.

Physical Qualities[edit]

An Angel's skin tones, eye color, and overall physical appearance often appear to be holy and divine. They are taller than humans however their essence is somewhat lighter. It is not uncommon for Angels to radiate a powerful aura of colored light depending on their mood and seem to be more real than anything around them. Some Angels' auras are so powerful that they convey emotions and so most will learn how to control their aura as children so that they can be more persuasive speakers or stealthier thieves. Most Angels are considered unnatural their entire lives because of their hardly changing appearance after 12 years of age.

Playing an Angel[edit]

Most Angels find no comfort in their host societies; with few ever truly feeling at home. It is because of this Angels tend to travel, following whatever path they wish, so that can find their place in the world. Some are drawn to divine paths, such as that of the paladin or clerics, while others wish to commune with nature, becoming sages and shamans; though more commonly an Angel will seek to prove themselves in battle and are well represented among the martial classes.

Angels are often intimidating to be around and anyone stuck in conversation with an Angel often finds themselves either on the edge of fright or hanging on the edge of the Angel's every word.

Angels are rarely found in groups as it is common for them to seek solitude however those who are more extroverted seek out their fellow angels looking for some form of kinship that they never had. Due to the power and rarity of the race, many Angels are kept as personal retainers to nobles and kings, and are frequently used as elite guards. It is not uncommon for a king to hire an Angel as a personal bodyguard, trainer and teacher of the heir to the throne, however the great attractiveness of some Angels results in kings sending them away for fear of losing their Queen.

Angel Characteristics: Intimidating, Inspiring, Lonely, Impetuous, Noble, Adaptable.

Names: Angels are named by their mothers or their adoptive community and so their names reflect those of the adopted race.


Three sample Angel adventurers are described below.

Avengelyne is an angel warlord. She was a feared warrior in Elysium, having single-handedly broken into the outer fortress of the Nine Hells, to confront the devils there. She questioned Pelor's love for humans, so was banished to the material realm and stripped of her abilities. Although he appeared truly angry, Pelor was trying to prepare Avengelyne for a coming war for which she would need to be strengthened.

Gideon is an angel cleric. He is the teacher at a magical school, and concerns himself with spotting the seeds of evil in his pupils. He is compelled to don his adventuring gear when one student flees the school under what he considers to be demonic influence
