So actually, in the fashion she dresses, her state is not apparent at the first glance: awoman hiding behind a mask... her hands hidden in gloves, long skirts concealing her legs, a wig instead of hair... an interesting NPC, excellent for a high magic campaign. Go to Comment
Now, at least the spirit is still there, thus hope remains...
If the wizard was wiling to laymorals aside, he could use an Exchange Body spell or the like to grant her a new one... and burn the body's old soul with the 'jack :evil: Go to Comment
Being an ardent fan of RuneQuest I am possibly a bit jaded on this since this kind of thing being something of a stock-in-trade for RQ magic (any shaman could do it). Nonetheless, I do like Cornelia, mostly because she makes sense, there is a logic to the Grand Wizards' reasons for creating her hew body, and for her acceptance for this fate.
Yes Scras you're quite right, this can just as easily be done o any spirit, regardless of said spirits' views on the matter.
I think the sixth paragraph would answer several of these questions, as it shows that the Druid served as an arbitrator to the locals, as well as keeping his valley safe. As for details such as his favorite animal, or his preference for sunrise or sunset, I try to pass along a feel for a character rather than setting out something set in stone. If I list Sitri's favorite animal is a blue-scaled Masuchi Dragon-lizard, what good does that do someone if they dont know what that critter is. His favorite animal can be whatever you want it to be, or need it to be. Go to Comment
I really like it when people have plots hooks, and I like a good back story. You've given a very good description of this character here, but my complaint is that the character is similar to many many woodland druids with very little to set him apart. I don't feel like I understand this character on a personal level. I don't know what animals he treasures, and whether he likes sunrise or sunset better. How does he feel about civilization?

This is really an archtype - I kind of agree with Zylithan in that it feels a little generic, and more like a role as opposed to person. I don't' need to know his favourite animal, but I would like a little more.
As such, the plot ideas that build off this are the best part. Go to Comment
These are items most excellent. The sort of thing you could see a person of the craft do. They are totally believable in their story, as each elements proceeds perfectly. Now these items, created for one purpose are to impact the world for the rest of time.
