Dane Owens

Dane fancied himself quite the shootist, but the truth is that life in the city guard just isn't conductive to demonstrations of bow skills, only the mindless drudgery of walking the beat, scaring beggars away, breaking up drunkard fights and so on. So Dane left for a life of ADVENTURE!, as bored city guardsmen are wont to do. As luck would have it, he fell in with a group of competent would-be adventurers, and faced DANGERS and MYSTERIES at their side. He doesn't quite see all this "protect the innocent!" thing some of his fellows (well, alright, just Jorus) have going on but hey, they're nice(ish) people, the pay is good, he gets to actually use his bow for a change, and he bought himself the fanciest hat in the history of fancy hats! Or so he thinks. He has also obtained two other parts of his dream outfit - a magnificent cape, and a fantastic fur coat. He truly is the party's most stylish member.

He is currently wearing MIRRORED SUNSHADES which provide the wearer with an aura of COOLNESS. Our fancy archer has had an attitude change as a result: he is now COOL and BADASS.

Long Bow ***

Short Sword **
Penalty: -2

Specializing in a melee weapon provides a character with two main benefits: first of all, he gains a +1 bonus to attack rolls and a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon; secondly, he gains an extra attack once per two rounds. A 1st-level fighter normally attacks once per round, but a 1st-level long sword specialist attacks three times per two rounds.


Characters who specialize in the bow gain a +1 bonus to hit at any range (normal range penalties still apply, of course), an increased rate of fire, and a new range category: point-blank. Point-blank is any shot of 30 feet or less. At point-blank range, the character gains a +2 to damage. In addition, bow specialists can automatically fire first as a very fast action if they have their target covered. This supercedes the specialization rules found in the Player’s Handbook.

Weapon Style Specialization: Missile Weapon

Some heroes specialize in fighting with ranged weapons; Robin Hood and William Tell spring to mind as good examples. Characters who choose to specialize in missile or thrown weapon style gain two benefits. First, they can move up to half their normal movement rate and still attack with their full rate of fire, or make a full move and attack at half their rate of fire. Second, they gain a bonus of –1 to their AC against enemy missile fire while attacking with a ranged weapon.

*The Phial of Whatever is the name Owens gave to this small, unremarkable bottle found during his adventures. Only a stroke of luck made him try shaking it, activating the magic within. It provides light like a lantern without any heat or combustion. He's discovered no other powers (if there are any) but it's a handy device.
