Looks like Noble, then!

Before you chose this path you were the child of such a wealthy family of aristocrats, you're positive that if you told your younger self you'd find yourself a Paladin of Oroka-Je, thousands miles from home, sitting in a dingy cheap inn (really not that cheap but anything less than perfect is kind of garbage), they'd probably call you some choice names in Undercommon.

You stop and turn again, facing the mirror once more.

Names.

Your name is...


Choose a name for your Drow Paladin - Most Drow names are two-parters, with a prefix meaning and a suffix meaning! Examples: Quaral (Quar meaning aged, al meaning Rage)
Vaslin (Vas meaning body, lin meaning commander)
If you want to comprise your own name that's 100% okay, or, if you want to instead list a meaning for the name or words to translate into a drow name (since I have,,,a humongous list of ways to put together Drow names and meanings), that could also work! Let's name our drow!!

Well, the name cant be RhylRhyl since Rhyl is a prefix only, but would you guys like for the paladin's name to be Rhyltana?

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

Your name is Rhyltana Everhviir - Yes, that's right. Everhviir. Your parents are the Marchioness G'eldayne Everhviir and her husband, the Marquess Ryldfein Everhviir. And your grandmother is, yes, the Duchess Chessidil Everhviir. You come from a powerful line of royalty that you have no doubt will not help you at all on this quest, since A) The Everhviirs are only important back in Vashkul, and even then, they're only important in the Underdark, and B) You kind of rejected your family name when you took on the path of a Paladin. But that's fine with you, you suppose. Still groggy, you get your clothes and armor on and glance around the room...where are your weapons?

Time to pick your weapons! For simplicity, as a paladin, we'll say you have a martial weapon and a shield, as well as a simple melee weapon. What shall your simple weapon be?
- Handaxe
- Quarterstaff
- Javelin
- Spear
- Greatclub
- Dagger
- Mace
- Sickle
- Light Axe
Which one?

Well, I done goofed. That list there was of simple weapons, not martial ones! So heh, you found your simple weapon, I suppose! A mace!!

You find your simple weapon, a mace, lying under the bed. Phew! Good thing you didn't accidentally throw it out the window in a red wine-fueled frenzy and hit a carriage driver again. Long story short, the last time you did that you got banned from a village. Now with your mace in your hands, and your shield resting next to your bed, you wonder where your last weapon is.
Where oh where is your...


NOW time to pick martial weapons, haha! Sorry!!!

Greatsword it is!!

Where oh where is your greatsword? You could've sworn you'd brought it into your room...Perhaps you left it downstairs when you ate dinner last night. You look through your bags to make sure, checking through everything you own.

Shall Rhyltana have a priest's pack or an explorer's pack?
