I like this, though the ability to recharge instantly seems a bit much.
Some versions of D&D would not be too badly unbalanced as some have both a sleep and a study period requirement (though I usually did not enforce *that* rule).
I would limit it to allow for 1 extra set of spells per day, with the risks that being put into an unwakable sleep provides. There could also be long term consequences for monkeying with one's sleep patterns, and part of the need for sleep could be to gather manna for the coming day.
Why is it bad to use an existing setting aside from ones own for a character?
If this character was just a modification of an existing Tolkien character then I would be with you Scras. The character is a little limited having its backstory so tied to a specific campaign world.
So much fantasy is drawn from his works - this one is just a lot more direct then others. The real value of this character is the absolute disconnect between the typical orc and his actual nature. Go to Comment
