As you see the strange shape ahead, you realize taking a shortcut through the Iceridge Tundra was not the best idea. *As you see it's shape coming closer, you deeply regret choosing the path of evil. *You also might be willing to change paths, as an icy axe of justice slices through your warm coat. *As you lay on the cold hard snow, you wish you hadn't done may things, for Atar Hrívë, has spoken...

Atar never really grew up. *He was more, shall we say, found. *Taken in by a lonely hermit, seeking to have this strange boy he had found, incased in solid ice, to be an honest, trustworthy man. *To the man, it seemed that the boy might even be ice, if not ice-like, for the boy, which he named Atar, seemed to emulate cold. *When found, Atar seemed to be about 7-10 years old, though it was quite hard to tell, Atar being almost translucent. *

After just one month after being taken in, the old man died after a cave was collapsed by a troop of frost trolls while mining a silver vein he had spotted. *He never even learned the man's name. *Instead he took on the name he had been given, adding on a surname, meaning "cold". *He had no place to live because the trolls had destroyed his home, so dug a hole in the snow, furnishing it with trinkets he found in the tundra. *Soon it a fully-fledged home, reinforced with branches and ice-furniture he made. *

As he grew to be around 15 years old, he found he had very strange talents. *He didn't know how they worked, but just how they were used. *His world, full of cold, now opened with bright possibilities. *He could manipulate ice, snow, and all forms of cold to his every whim. *He used these newfound powers to ward off enemies, and make his home better. *After a lonely ice dragon came to investigate his home, probably in search of a little more than knowledge, he made an axe out of it's talons. *Using it's scales, he made daggers. *Now, he was fully equipped to handle any situation. *

After about twenty years of living on his own, he decided to venture into the closest city, though close isn't really a good word for 213 miles. *He used the trinkets he had collected, now realizing they were money in this world, and bought many things to aid him in his journeys. *Storing this in a handy Bag, he made the long trek back home. *

At his arrival, he took all items he owned that were useful, and went off to explore the many treasures of the tundra. *He soon realized, during his travels, that the evil he had experienced, was nothing compared to the evil of the world. *He swore to abolish all evil that defiled his homeland, and defend the creatures of it. *
From this day forward, and forever on, into the ages of my cold eternity...

Very nice... I want to see a battle between Atar Hrive and my version of the Snow Queen now! ;D

I don't recognize some of the spells and items though; are you using Frostburn or something? What does the Polar Chill feat do, for example, and what are the prerequisites (if any)? What do snow goggles do for you?

I thought we were supposed to stick as close to the SRD as possible. (Which is kind of cramping my style, since I really wanted to give the Queen a dominated asperi mount, ice paraelemental servants, and a greater choker of eloquence, but I know not everyone is willing or able to shell out the bucks for extra books.)
