The Traveling Wizard


The Traveling Wizard is a man of minor repute. He has made great impacts on a few places and people. Those that know him, know him to be powerful. However, most do not know him, for he travels the world. He seeks experience and knowledge, craves adventure. The journeys of the Traveling Wizard seem to never end.

Special Equipment:

The Staff of the Traveling Wizard


He is a man of normal stature and height. On first glance he looks to be a man of about 35 years of age, but on closer inspection his age is difficult to determine. He wears a thick black robe over simple travelers clothes; he has a pack on his back. He carries a simple wooden quarterstaff. He has some jewlery, an amulet set with a strange stone, a ring with runes carved on it, and a bracelet that looks like a snake. He also has an owl familar who makes occasional appearances.


The Traveling Wizard is actually quite old. Due to his magic, he does not seem to age. He has been wandering the world for some time and has seen a large portion of it. His exploits are many, he has advised kings, slain beasts, trained wizards, and set many adventurers upon their paths. He does nto have a particular goal per say, only to experience as much of the world as he can. He has no home per say, but many places that he visits around the world. He is not completely unattached, having friends is several places. He wanders from place to place, sometimes with a specific destination in mind, sometimes not. The Traveling Wizard does not always travel alone, he finds companions to travel with sometimes, partakes in adventures. He has traveled with many adventurers as he has been walking the world for 400 years. Records of his journeys are kept for the most part, only by him. Refrences to his exploits and past are as scattered as his journeys.  He is generally known as The Traveling Wizard to those who know, because he has had too many different names in too many differnt places. Wealth is not something he craves, nor something he has. He travels and lives simply. Overall he is good hearted, although he bears no attachment to any goal. He has no lord, serves no land. He wll help those who are honorable, and will frequently fight evil that he sees. It is said by those who know him that it is not the destination he loves, but the journey.

Roleplaying Notes:

There are many possibilities for The Traveling Wizard. He steers many adventurers to their goals, as he loves adventure. He could set characters off on a quest, or save them when they are in danger. He is an excellent way to set up a new land or any change of pace or scenery.

That is a very brilliant Idea might I say. I am in awe and great story it kept me at the edge of my seat even though I make stories up all the time I am a DM. Anyhow that has to be the greatest char story I have ever heard and thank you greatly for I shall use it wisely.

I don't find it to be so amazing. It isn't very detailed, and we cannot infer anything about the character from it.
Why does he travel? For the hell of it?

With CP on this, this is one of my borderline 3s. Nothing wrong with it but just very plain, nothing of the underlying character of this Travelling Wizard really shows through, fine for a legend but otherwise not much use.

Elven Light Horse - a lithe and small animal well suited to the forest home of the elves. It has semi-cloven hooves, a longer tail, like that common to unicorn illustrations, and always a snow white pelt. Lives inthe forest, able to stand on back legs to crop leaves from the lower branches of trees. Shy and easily frightened, but at peace when around elves.
