    Don't have any of that prepared, and I don't think that would even redeem him. It would only serve as a leash for when he's let out, and an imperfect one since he'd have more than enough willpower to resist it. Compelling someone to seek redemption is coercion, Theo would not accept that.

    Theo's aim would be to use a series of leading questions, given in a context that we are building towards mercy in the future. He thinks I'm here to execute or watch over him, and he won't expect Theo to show anything but contempt. At the very least, we can test his willingness to cooperate by extracting information, and use it to come back later to live up to our end of the deal.

    Knowledge religion is an appropriate check for the Dalvarite "Chosen One"

    It refers to a key figure in the religious texts of Dalvar, a man named Wiccam who perfectly melded psionics and magic and was therefore blessed by the Sage. He founded a sect of cerebromancers sworn to the pursuit and preservation of knowledge. It is said that he had unlocked the secrets of casting off the physical and existing as a being of pure consciousness, until the other gods struck him down.

    Knowledge History will work for Guaven. He was a figure from the early history of Kharheim, a dwarf who became so obsessed with achieving victory in a war with a rival clan that he quested for and recovered a demon-possessed axe - an axe that made its bearer invincible and ageless, but also subjected him to fits of berserker madness. It is recorded that Guaven won the war almost single-handedly - but that he also wiped out the leaders of his own clan in a fit of insanity. History records that he was cast out, and left this plane in search of a fitting challenge, never to be seen again.

    You cannot recall any stories of an Eladrin Prince.

    Lets try Planar then: (1d20+9)[11]
    Even if relevant, I'm guessing no effect.

    Will Gunn cut in? I think Theo rebuking Melchizar is as far as he can take it, and I'm just trying to get a villainous monologue that makes him accidentally reveal too much. Melchizar is passed Theo's abilities to help, and Rosalind isn't here, so he'd expect Gunn to cut in at the best moment.

    As far as you can recall, Eladrin society is based on democracy; the idea of an Eladrin Prince is practically a contradiction in terms. You certainly cannot think of an individual to whom this might refer.

    Gunn and Melchizar


    Bold prediction -- the helm of the Undying Prince, and the armor of the Eladrin Prince, are connected.

    Lol! Hey, maybe you can dominate Melchizar after all! We could send him after Maltur and Vlarath.

    And then he can go in a deicide spree and we can kill him for XP.

    Rosalind was judged faithful and made it to her afterlife. As far as she knows that's all that happened there.

    Some of those ahead have the aura of faithfulness, but most don't.

    It was stated only a servant of the lovers could free him once he was redeemed. No servants of the lovers minus rosalind.

    Charis designed the box to hold Melchizar until Torae's priesthood considered him redeemed. At the time when that conversation took place, Rosalind was present on a vision quest into the past. It's not unreasonable to think that Rosalind can open the box.

    I think we've also had it revealed in game that attempts were made to free Melchizar using captured priests, brute force, etc without success.

    But it doesn't necessarily follow that only Rosalind can open the box...

    Of course, no lock has been designed that it can only be opened by a single key and nothing else. There is only foresight to prevent what events you can predict.

    Also, I want that armor I want that armor I want that armor.

    As for the armor, well you will have one angry vampire if he ever gets free. Then again if you set him free I think he will call it an even trade

    I want to know the mechanics and whatnot behind the axe, because that sounds like it's perfect for Perseus. And obviously the Dalvar stuff would go to Yara.
