Character Thursday-Margus Lilt (Satyr Bard)

A level 10, 80 point buy, Satyr Bard. He dabbles in enchantment with cross-class magic to include arcs. Otherwise his focus in on musical and vocal support.

Backstory:

Margus grew up loving music. He dreamt that the power of the voice could be a greater tool for good than any other weapon. He began training himself to be a diplomat of sorts, desiring to use song and persuasion to save lives and bring peace. However, as a young man, he tried to put his practiced talents to use with orcs wandering into his tribe’s forest. They would not listen to reason and even tried to attack. When he was rescued by the combative elder members of his tribe, he realized that force had a place, He was scrawny and weak, but he decided his voice could be used to strengthen the arms of others.

Levels 1-10:

With the orcs neutralized in their forests, Margus set out to do more. He had been an anthem singer for the Satyr fighters pushing back the orcs and he believed that with more combat experience he could do still more for his people. He took positions as heralds to minor nobles, employed his powerful singing voice in armed groups, and eventually found himself supporting a small group of explorers and champions of good. It was here he finally felt appreciated. He began to learn all kinds of skills from the others. He quickly began to learn magic from a peer and became interested in enchanting and encharging to support his allies.

Strength: 8, Constitution: 10, Dexterity: 24,

Wisdom: 13, Intelligence: 20, Charisma: 23

Abilities: Battle Song VI, Encourage X, Play Instrument/Sing VI, Spell Casting III, Swift Magic II, Transient Enchant II, Convince II, Jump I, Persuade I, Fast Hands I

Skills: Diplomacy VIII, Perception II

Margus can have 7 things enchanted at a time, but I doubt he has the spell points for it yet. I didn’t to the math. He’s also a very fast swift magic caster, capable of pretty powerful spells in a single turn.

His Battle Song and Encourage empower his allies greatly, and their Morale should always be high with his songs each night.
