Yami (3.5e Class)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Yami are ancient spirits from long ago sealed in powerful relics known as Millennium Items. The Yami is not the person to whom the body belongs but a spirit sharing it with the wielder. They can summon powerful monsters and can manifest the magical powers of the item they are sealed to. They can be fair and just and cooperate with their host or utterly vile and forcefully take over. The spirits often remember nothing of their past so they normally just go by Yami or Yami (player name)

Making a Yami[edit]

Summons monsters and uses them to attack from afar while buffing them up with spells and protecting them with traps.

Abilities: Depending on the Millennium Item chosen the most important will be either Wisdom, Intelligence or Charisma. After that Dexterity and Constitution can never really hurt. Strength is not recommended for Yami.

Races: Any sentient humanoid.

Alignment: Yami have the potential to be of any alignment, though generally speaking most of them lean toward lawful.

Starting Gold: See: Fighter

Starting Age: Depends on the race as Yami are spirits and can work with anybody.
