10th Level NPC: Knight of Neraka
Disarmed by the Monk Delo Makto & subsequently killed in our Dragonlance Age of Mortals Campaign, it took longer for me to make Esmond Dondanne’ven then it did to kill him. He still got in a few good ones though. I equipped him with a basic +1 short sword but after seeing him get utterly destroyed by a 7th level party, I researched a couple of better weapon options that should boost him up. His weapon feats are for the short sword and I try to keep any enhancements at +1 because this is a low magic campaign.
Magic Weapon Special Abilities
Shadowstrike Shortsword (Arms & Equipment Guide)- The shadowstrike enhancement allows the wielder to attack with the shadow he casts thus increasing his threat range by 5 ft and denying his opponent’s Dexterity bonus. This works well with the Knight of the Lily Sneak Attack ability.
Keen Shortsword (Dungeon Master’s Guide)-No Explanation needed.
Flaming Shortsword (Dungeon Master’s Guide-Fire is always cool.
