Biography


Early Years

Resurrecting Xakohotep

Riddleport

Together Menkhep-Heb and Xakohotep sought the nearby town of Riddleport to seek the wisdom of the Cypher Mages. The mages allowed the two to study their libraries, where Menkhep-Heb taught the newly resurrected godling the northern "common" language.

They searched the nearby ruins outside of the city where they met the dragon-warlock, Timoran. He was also in the city to study the black blot that lied ofter the port. They spoke and decided to remain allies.

A week after they came to the city, the black blot disappeared and a tsunami hit the city, bringing many aberrations and sea creatures to the streets. Menkhep-Heb and his master stayed in the Golden Goblin and watched as the city fell apart. A great meteorite was also seen crashing into an island on the horizon. The great and powerful Xakohotep wished to see the fallen meteorite, so they procured a dwarven ship which also held Timoran as a voyager, and they sailed to the island known as the Devil's Elbow.

The Devil's Elbow

Once on the island, the dwarves fled, leaving the trio on the island. They sought the crater of the meteorite and found only strange tentacled beasts which attacked. The beasts were defeated but not before Menkhep-Heb was bitten and an infection began on his arm which steadily grew worse. They traveled back to the town, Witchlight, where Menkhep-Heb put himself into a stasis to await the dawn where he could pray for new spells to cure the infection.

Celwynvian

With his fellows, Menkhep-Heb assaulted the last hold of the Drow in the city of Celwynvian. Within, they found an alabaster room with a elf maiden sitting over a pool. Menkhep-Heb quickly deduced it was an illusion and quickly cast a Magic Circle Against Evil around himself. Luckily too, as an aboleth burst out of the water, letting the illusion around the room drop and taking over the mind of Olin. However, after the creature told Olin to attack the rest of the part, Olin charged into the Magic Circle and regained his mind, instead attacking the Aboleth. The creature retreated under the water and Mabiel and Solomon set the water on fire with Alchemist Fires.

The creature had struck Olin with its tentacles and an oozing disease was spreading across his arm. Menkhep-Heb advised cutting off the appendage, but Solomon had knowledge of the condition and Olin decided to allow the disease to spread and to chance curing it later.

Afterwards they discovered a portal (quickly dispatching it's guardian) and entered. It seemed they had traveled back in time to the year of Earthfall, when Celwynvian was still in good repair. Menkhep-Heb and Olin searched the city for "strangers" and found a servant of a Runelord living in a manor within the city. Thought no important information could be received from her, they left with her convinced they wished her no harm and were not spies. Meanwhile, Mabiel researched the library and Solomon spoke with the elven wizards.

They met back up and came to the conclusion that this was the fabled Armageddon Echo they had heard of earlier and the Drow were here to discover how to re-enact Earthfall. Solomon explained that the Drow were currently at the Observatory and so the heroes left with a dedication to wipe out these troublemakers.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Restorative Touch (Su): You can touch a creature, letting the healing power of your deity flow through you to relieve the creature of a minor condition. Your touch can remove the dazed, fatigued, shaken, sickened, or staggered condition. You choose which condition is removed. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Touch the Spirit World (Su): With a touch, you can empower a weapon to affect incorporeal creatures. The weapon touched deals half damage to incorporeal creatures, or full damage if it is a magic weapon. This benefit lasts for a number of rounds equal to your cleric level. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Command Undead: As a standard action, you can use one of your uses of channel negative energy to enslave undead within 30 feet. Undead receive a Will save to negate the effect. The DC for this Will save is equal to 10 + 1/2 your cleric level + your Charisma modifier. Undead that fail their saves fall under your control, obeying your commands to the best of their ability, as if under the effects of control undead. Intelligent undead receive a new saving throw each day to resist your command. You can control any number of undead, so long as their total Hit Dice do not exceed your cleric level. If you use channel energy in this way, it has no other effect (it does not heal or harm nearby creatures). If an undead creature is under the control of another creature, you must make an opposed Charisma check whenever your orders conflict.
