    Default How would you portray Maleficant?

    As speaks the title, so do I. If you were to place Maleficant in a game, what class/level/spells would you bestow upon her? The movie version, that is, not the version from Kingdom Hearts. She seems a little less wise in that version.
    Forget not Diablo, her Raven Familiar, as you ponder.

    You mean Maleficient? I think a dread necromancer, or a warlock might be appropiate, though it's open to question.

    Yes, there's the spelling.
    She really diddn't command any undead, did she? And she could turn into a dragon...

    From wikipedia:

She also casts spells, such as inflicting Aurora with a curse of death (weakened to a curse of sleep by the good fairy Merryweather), creating thunderstorms, sending frosts, projecting lightning, teleporting, and changing shapes. Some of Maleficent's forms in the film were that of a spinning wheel, a Will o' the wisp, and a dragon.

    Her pet raven (called Diablo), and her goons, an army of inept goblin henchmen, carried out most of her orders for her. She was slain by the sword of Prince Philip, after one final enchantment from Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather drove it directly into her heart. She fell to the ground. Nothing was left of her but her cloak with the sword still in it.
    So she's a spellcaster. She's cast control weather, lightning, and changed shape from spinning wheel, will o' the wisp and dragon. All that leaves is the curse of death. Bestow Curse is too weak sadly. I think she paid out the XP for wish. Based on the spells cast, she likely was either a 18+ level sorcerer or a 17+ level wizard.

    Edit- As for the goblins, she took leadership at some point. Though I don't know who the cohort is.

    Default Maleficent D20

    Here is how I portrayed Maleficent:



    Maleficent

    Half Hex Dragon 13th level Human Sorceress, 2nd level Fallen Fairy Godmother*

    Full Attack: Bite+6 melee (1d6-1) and 2 claws+1 melee (1d4-1)
    Space/Reach: 5ft. /5ft

    Organization: Solitary (Unique)
    Challenge Rating: 18
    Treasure: Triple Standard
    Alignment: Lawful Evil
    Advancement: Per Class
    Level Adjustment: +3

    *The Fairy Godmother is my homebrewed class. http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showp...06&postcount=1

    Designer Notes:
    Maleficent started with elite array (8, 10, 12, 13, 14, and 15), +4 points for level, she also began with 6 hit points at first level as an elite NPC. She gains the Alertness feat while in the presence of her familiar. She also gains +2 to her saves from her cloak of resistance +2. Maleficent gains the following skills from her familiar: +3 appraise.

    "Now shall you deal with me, O Prince, and all the powers of Hell!"

    Maleficentís draconic parentage is readily apparent from the horns on her head to her unhealthy pallor, and her love for corruption, betrayal and decay. She cruelly manipulates those around her. She covets power in all its forms. Maleficent speaks Abyssal, Common, Draconic, Infernal and Undercommon.

    Spoiler
    Show

    Maleficent also possesses a range of magical powers and artifacts, which allow her to do such things as use the crystal ball on her staff to taunt Prince Philip with images of a bleak future. She also casts spells, such as inflicting Aurora with a curse of death (weakened to a curse of sleep by the good fairy, Merryweather), creating thunderstorms, sending frosts, projecting lightning, teleporting, and changing shapes. Some of Maleficent's forms in the film were that of a spinning wheel, a Will o' the wisp, and a dragon. Maleficent was often surrounded by eerie green flames; in the final battle she cries "Now shall you deal with me, O Prince, and all the powers of Hell!" implying that she had phenomenal powers of evil at her disposal, even providing viewers with a demonstration by subsequently transforming into a tremendous black-and-purple dragon. Her pet raven, Diablo, and her army of inept goblin henchmen carried out most of her orders for her.



    Aging Well (Ex): Like other fairy godmothers, Maleficent gets no penalties for aging after middle age. Due to her evil nature, however, her skin has taken on an unhealthy green tone and she is rather gaunt.

    Alter Self (Sp): As a fairy godmother, Maleficent gains the ability to alter self once per day. In addition, she may shrink or grow by two sizes. Maleficent is too vain to alter her true appearance in public. However, she has been known to disguise herself using this ability.

    Bestow Babyís Bane (Sp): Any baby whom an evil fairy godmother oversees is given prophecy that foretells a curse that will take place when the child turns 16. Some of these curses are so potent that they turn into family curses (such as turning into a frog) that can be passed down through the generations. Others can have fatal consequences. Unfortunately, the only person who can remove the curse is the fairy godmother who lay in the first place. Such enchantments can be mitigated by higher-ranking fairy godmothers who will earn the enmity of the first.

    Breath Weapon (Su): Maleficent has a breath weapon, a 60-foot line of putrid venom, once per day, which does 1d6 points of Constitution damage on a failed Fortitude Save (DC 16)

    Familiar: Diablo the Raven gives Maleficent +3 on appraise. Diablo speaks Infernal. He has 27 hit points, Int of 13, a natural armor adjustment of +8 and a spell resistance as a 20th level caster.

    **Alertness (Ex): While her familiar is within armís reach, Maleficent gains the Alertness feat. She gains +2 bonus to Spot and Listen skills.

    Improved Evasion (Ex): When subjected to an attack that normally allows a Reflex saving throw for half damage, a familiar takes no damage if it makes a successful saving throw and half damage even if the saving throw fails.

    Share Spells: Maleficent may have any spell (but not any spell-like ability) she casts on herself also affect her familiar. Diablo must be within 5 feet at the time of casting to receive the benefit.

    If the spell or effect has a duration other than instantaneous, it stops affecting the familiar if it moves farther than 5 feet away and will not affect the familiar again even if it returns to the master before the duration expires. Additionally, Maleficent may cast a spell with a target of "You" on Diablo (as a touch range spell) instead of on herself.

    Maleficent and her familiar can share spells even if the spells normally do not affect creatures of the familiarís type (magical beast).

    Empathic Link (Su): Maleficent has an empathic link with her familiar out to a distance of up to 1 mile. She cannot see through the familiarís eyes, but they can communicate empathically. Because of the limited nature of the link, only general emotional content can be communicated.

    Because of this empathic link, Maleficent has the same connection to an item or place that her familiar does.

    Deliver Touch Spells (Su): Diablo can deliver touch spells for her. If Maleficent and her familiar are in contact at the time Maleficent casts a touch spell, she can designate Diablo as the "toucher." Diablo can then deliver the touch spell just as Maleficent could. As usual, if Maleficent casts another spell before the touch is delivered, the touch spell dissipates.

    Speak with Master (Ex): Diablo and Maleficent can communicate verbally as if they were using a common language. Other creatures do not understand the communication without magical help.

    Speak with Animals of Its Kind (Ex): Diablo can communicate with animals of approximately the same kind as itself (including dire varieties): Such communication is limited by the intelligence of the conversing creatures. Diablo can speak with normal and dire avians (sparrows to eagles).

    Spell Resistance (Ex): Maleficentís familiar gains spell resistance equal to her level + 5. To affect the familiar with a spell, another spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) that equals or exceeds the familiarís spell resistance.

    Scry on Familiar (Sp): Maleficent may scry on her familiar (as if casting the scrying spell) once per day.

    Flight (Su): Due to her background as a fairy godmother, Maleficent has gained the ability to fly. Small black draconic wings matching her cloak appear at her back when she uses this ability.

    Retributive Curse (Su): Maleficent has learned to channel her pain and anger into terrible retributive magic; many foes who succeed in wounding her find themselves wishing that they could take back the blow. On any round in which she is injured (taking a hit point or ability damage) Maleficent may curse on of her opponents who injured her as a free action with either Sickness: Target is sickened for 1d4 rounds or Agony: Target is crippled by agonizing pain (treat as nauseated) for 1d4 rounds.

    Spell-like Abilities (Sp): At Willódeathwatch, 3/dayósuggestion.

    Spells Known: 0 level: Acid Splash, Arcane Mark, Detect Poison, Detect Magic, Daze, Magic Missile, Mending, Message, Open/Close; 1st level: Alarm, Cause Fear, Protection from Good, Shield, Identify; 2nd level: Command Undead, Levitate, Pyrotechnics, Darkness, Misdirection; 3rd level: Summon Monster III, Nondetection, Arcane Sight, Fireball, Dispel Magic; 4th level: Charm monster, Polymorph, Phantasmal Killer, Bestow Curse; 5th level: Baleful Polymorph, Dismissal, Planar Binding Lesser, Dominate Person; 6th level: Mislead, Create Undead, Chain Lightning; 7th level: Teleport Greater, Finger of Death

    {table]Level|# Known spells|# Spells Maleficent can cast*|DC of Spells
    0| 9 |6| 14
    1st| 5| 7|15
    2nd |5 |7 |16
    3rd| 5|7| 17

    5th|4|6|19
    6th|3|6| 20
    7th|2|4|21[/table]

    *Includes bonus spells for high Charisma.

    The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a sorcererís spell is 10 + the spell level + the sorcererís Charisma modifier.

    Vile Resistance (Ex): Maleficent receives a +4 bonus on saves versus death effects, enchantment spells, and spells and effects that deal negative energy damage. She is immune to disease and poison.

    Possessions: Rod of thunder and lightening, ring of protection +1, staff of frost, crystal ball with telepathy, wand of darkness, Maleficentís cloak is a +2 Cloak of resistance

    3 Actually, before the genie at all he doesn't seem to have magic abilitys, just a bird& what is probably a magical staff, his magical powers come in once he gets the lamp(And you know basically shows that he has no wisdom score.) He makes himself a sorcerer, then a genie, but we can skip normal part.

    Jafar's human form is easy enough: He's a regular guy with a staff that can be used to cast some sort of enchantment effect. The tricky part is figuring out what it casts. Dominate won't work, since it lasts for such a brief amount of time and the Sultan doesn't seem to know he's been affected. Suggestion's too subtle. Perhaps some modified form of Hypnotism?

    As far as class goes, I'd call him a Human Expert with max ranks in Use Magic Device and Knowledge (Arcana). High Int, Good Cha, Oh-So-Very-Dumped Wis. Artificer might work as well, if you assume he built the staff and developed the smoke bomb. I'm not sure where Iago comes in. Perhaps he UMD'd a scroll of Awaken?

    Meh, Gaston would just be a 1st level rogue.

    Anyway, do the villains home to the Kingdom Hearts universe count as Disney? I believe I have most of the Nobodies and Heartless stashed away on some hardrive or another.

    Bear in mind, his power is not just incredible arrogance. There's a reason he's the most popular guy in town. I'd put him at fourth, maybe fifth level. He's still no match for the Beast in a straight fight, of course, but he could take any normal human any day of the week.

    How about Ursula? There's bound to be a class out there that revolves around magical contracts.

    Just because he can take any normal human doesn't mean he has to be higher than 1st level. A normal human has 1-4 HP. Even if he's only 1st level, if Gaston has a +2 or +3 bonus from strength, he can still deck them with one punch. Add in a high bluff feint followed by a Sneak Attack, which is certainly the kind of thing Gaston would do, in my opinion, and he's doing 4-11 damage with his *fists* and no feats involved.

    And he's a hunter, which implies laying in wait and Sneak Attacking animals with a rifle from 30' away, which could also be easily accomplished as a first level rogue.

    I'd just like to say that I love the name Maleficant for a villain.

    Names I have used for villains in the past:

    Mordeth
    Tal Malvolen
    Vasishtha
    Mirado
    Mircalla (cudos if you get that reference)

    As regards the OP, I think the witch variant spell list from the DMG works really well to represent Maleficant.

    Not fair! In the Disney Campaign setting it's obvious that anyone can sing songs to inspire people (See: Ursula, Scar, Phil, etc.)

    Bard might work. He has several ranks in Perform (singing), at any rate. Plus he's a decent fighting type, although not nearly as good as Simba or Mufasa.

    I still say rogue fits him best. But, anyway, that's a horrible idea for a staff! Not only could he have simply shouted "You are a rosebush, thus you must give me money!" to everyone and they'd have believed him, but if the PCs ever got the staff from Jafar, that'd be what they would do!

    Jafar's staff is more ore less some manner of "Staff of Persuasion" or some such, which he "use magic device"-es, being a rogue or bard or spelltheif or something. It uses like, Hyptnotism, Charm Person, Suggestion, less Geas, things like that.
    Either that, or he's a low level bard and the staff is just the focus for the spell he casts.
