Campaign of the Month: January 2014
Greyhawk 937 CY: The Age of Steam
Duchess Vane Von Slythe
Homeland: Great Kingdom
The Von Slythe Family
Vane is a warrior. She loves magic and fighting and justice and believes that the Great Kingdom has a core of greatness that can only be realized through the marriage of magic and justice through diplomacy and arms.
She uses her spells to augment her martial abilities and to evoke massive damage on evildoers. Her specialty is varying damage spells to meet the weaknesses of her foes. It is not unusual for her to switch between all the elemental damage forms in a combat and end with simply tearing the arms off of something.
Vane is a daredevil and loves to fly, either on airships of through magic. In fact, the second tier of her combat against dangerous foes involves flight as a main element. She often uses higher ground for tactical advantage and then uses strafing runs and magic to destroy enemies. The older people of her realm whisper there are reasons for a Von Slythe to fight like a dragon. But they know their duchess is trustworthy.
Vane is the heir to the headship of the family. For 300 years the leadership has passed to the oldest child, with no regard to gender. The head keeps the last name no matter what sex they are.
