Quest of the Sorcerer King: Lenwe, Saeros and Aerith

“I’m sorry we killed your friend, but the sign clearly warned you about trespassing.” 

Lenwe, Saeros and Aerith are tasked with keeping intruders out of the forest in which they live. The instructions from their superiors are very simple: shoot anything that comes into the forest. Since they do have scruples, they will warn trespassers to turn back before opening fire. They will not debate, answer questions or act as guides. Leave or get shot. It’s really that simple.

     In combat, the elves will cast True Strike, fire from cover, then flee. To increase their arrows’ effectiveness, they all fire at the same target. They will then return and get back into firing position using Hide and Move Silently. If their opponent proves dangerous, the elves will use Expeditious Retreat to escape.

     In my campaign, Lenwe, Saeros and Aerith were played as cold and distant, with few kind words for outsiders. While their alignment in relation to their clan might be Chaotic Good, their treatment of strangers is Neutral at best. In your campaign, the elves could be used as potential rivals or even allies depending on your game.
