In Return to Brookmere, you will be an elven fighter
named Brion. As Brion, you are five feet tall and weight 100 pounds.
You have shoulder-length honey blonde hair, pointed ears, and brilliant
gray-green eyes. Like all elves, you have elvensight allowing you to
see object up to 60 feet away in the dark by the heat they give off.
Although elves are not as strong as humans, they are very clever and
quick. Elves are able to speak the languages of orcs, goblins,
hobgoblins, and gnolls as well as the "common" language of humans.
For your adventure, your father, King Cedrus, has
given you a finely made suit of silvery chainmail that covers you from
head to waist. Chain mail looks like a heavy knit silver sweater but
it's woven from metal, not wool. Chainmail is light, flexible and will
protect you in combat. You wear your chainmail under a purple wool
tunic. Sturdy black leather breeches and tall black boots complete your
outfit. You are armed with a sword and a dagger and carry a polished
metal shield. A leather pouch filled with food and water is tied at
There is a heavy gold chain around your neck. At the
end of the chain is a golden charm, worked in precious gems, in the
shape of dragon's head. The charm is the fabled amulet, the Mouth of
Mimulus. With the help of this magical necklace, you will be able to
speak with and understand any creature you meet on your adventure.
The dangers awaiting you will challenge your skills
to the limit. Gather your wits about you. Take a firm hold on your
sword, and take the first step into . . . adventure!
