Earring of swimming: bestows upon the wearer the ability to swim at a full 21 base speed. the ring further enables the wearer to dive up to 50 feet into water without injury, providing the depth of the water is at least 1 1/2 feet per 10 feet of diving elevation. the wearer can stay underwater for up to four rounds without needing a breath of a of air. Surface swimming can continue for four hours before a one hour (floating) rest is needed. The ring confers the ability to stay afloat under all but typhoon-like conditions.
Cloak of Poisonousness – This particular cloak is usually made of a woolly material, although it can be made of leather. It radiates magic. The cloak can be handled without harm, but as soon as it is actually donned, the wearer is stricken stone dead. A cloak of poisonousness can be removed only with a remove curse spell—this destroys the magical properties of the cloak. If a neutralize poison spell is then used, it may be possible to revive the victim with a raise dead or resurrection spell, but there is a -10% chance of success because of the poison.
On the taller side of things 6’2", and of athletic build, he’s stronger than he looks, with a muscular and angular face. Wearing a short light brown beard most of the time, medium length dirty blonde/light brown hair, with bleached streaks due to being on the sea and in the sun a lot. A charming and handsome fellow, he’s good with the ladies, or at least he has had success in the past, blue eyes. Hair is sometimes worn loose and sometimes tied back. He likes to wear nice clothing, silken shirts, high quality leather gloves, boots and belt, with a well kept coat keep him in fashion, and warm on the high seas.
PARTY SECRET WORD: Man overboard
Born and raised in the City of Velprintalar. He came from a well off upbringing, has an education, and a cocky attitude to match. Some time he keeps it subdued, and other times he’ll run wild with it. Cool, calm, collected, calculating. Sometimes the emotions take hold, as with all men. Kind to the ladies, small animals and Fairies. He’s tolerant of Goblins and Orcs, as with his profession in this part of the world, has run in with them as employment fits.
His father was a shipper, and had a few other Captains under is employ. One of which was his Uncle, his father’s Brother. Francis grew up at Sea with his Father when he could, from a very young age. He would stay at home with his mother for education and classical upbringing, and go to Sea with his father as often as he could. He had a great relationship with his parents and a happy childhood. He wasn’t a noble, but his family did well, and had enough money to make sure he had the best of things. His parents taught him to be generous and kind. His father was the kind to always over tip and meet a stranger with a kind word and an open palm. He said, “A Man’s loyalty is stronger than his fear.”
He grew up with a desire for the finer things in life through all his travel and exposure to a diverse and varied cargoes and personalities he meet while shipping with his Father. He wears fine clothing when he can, drinks good drink, and prefers foods prepared by chefs, and master cooks over slop house Inn’s. He’ll stay at the nicest places he can afford. He knows he should sometimes keep his profile low, and not attract attention, and does mitigate that to a degree, but when good food, good company, and a game of chance are in the midst, that caution gets thrown to the wind.
After finding some suspicious cargo on board from a group of Merchants Franicis’s father had done many jobs for was discovered. Some weird things began to happen. Other’s dropped business, contracts were broken, and things took a turn for the worst. After taking some concerns directly to the Merchants, Francis’s father was never seen from again. 3 of the men who were part of this group Francis knows of, Dragaemyr ‘red tooth’, Snakeman Zeles and Hadramor the Brutal. After returning home and finding his mother dead as well, Francis left the city immediately and hitched a ride on the most unsavory looking ship he could find. He’s been in hiding for 5 years now, staying clear of anything from his home city. Working for any bottom feeder he could find and clear of the more respectable channels of shipping.
Re: Cutlass from pg. 100 of ‘The Complete Fighter’s Handbook"
The cutlass is a short, heavy sword, sharp along only one edge, with a heavy basket hilt (a protective cup) around the hilt to protect the hand. The cutlass’ basket hilt provides the following benefits: it gives the wielder a +1 to hit with the Parry maneuver: and it works just the same as an iron gauntlet if the wielder wishes to punch someone with the hilt rather than slash with the blade. (See the Player’s Handbook, pages 97-98. Bare-hand attacks do ld2 damage, plus strength bonus, and the other effects of Punching from the chart on 97: metal gauntlets and other metal band-protection makes that ld3 plus strength bonus and punching effects. Note: An enchanted cutlass, say a cutlass + 1, does not confer the + 1 to hit and damage with these basket-hilt punches… only with blade attacks.) Proficiency with Cutlass is related to proficiency with short sword, daggerldirk, knife stiletto. and main-gauche. Weapon Specialization with Cutlass is normal, except that you also get the +1 to hit and +2 damage with those basket-hilt punches. In a campaign with pirates, cutlasses are common and readily available in any port community: they are much less common inland.
From Cyton the Assbag: “He explains that back in Rivertree they were on a bit of leave awhile back when Cyton and some of the other crew lost all their personal coin to Francis while gambling. Cyton caught up with him later that night and when he found him he was with Cyton’s favorite regular girl, whom at the time Cyton thought was his ‘exclusive girl’. So he and the crew beat and kidnapped him with the intent of selling him to Khoppy for his Zhent contact info.”
