Shaper of Form[edit]

She didn't have lockpicks, dammit. How'd she get out?
—Garum, Dwarf Sentinel


Bards occasionally tell tale, late at night, of primal beings at the very heart of existence that sometimes kidnap young spellcasters. These spirits of form test their captive like alchemists test and sample gold. If they find her wanting, they return her from whence she came without memory. The ones they find worthy become the Shapers of Form.

Becoming a Shaper of Form[edit]
