The basilisk snake of Skartara is a devious creature whose bite turns flesh to stone. A skilled amazon warrior may carry a few to the battlefield in a leather bag for an unexpected surprise.

An assassin knows very well that most mages are male and many spend their life in seclusion without seeing a woman. Some who have trained in these particular arts can also employ this strategy on the battlefield.

Running away is for the weak. A barbarian warrior who runs is easy prey. One who stands his ground in the face of death may survive, for he is the one the ancestral spirits will favour.

Goodberry [ Druid ] Black Mass [ Necromancer ] Divine Apparition [ Paladin ]

The dragon god of death Trag’Oul takes his faithful under his wings, turning aside blades and arrows. This powerful spell requires total concentration and is easily broken when the caster is disturbed.
