Edward has seen the darkness and danger of other realms. He knows the world is under constant danger from demonic influence, and he has sworn to protect the world as a member of a holy order of demon hunters.
From Edward’s point-of-view, Felstad’s thawing ruins are a weak point in the boundaries between worlds. The ancient demonic rituals that occurred in Felstad have made it easier for demons to cross over into the world. He has gathered together several other demon hunters to explore the ruins, recover useful artifacts, and find a way to strengthen the barrier between planes of existence.
Edward’s magical training has focused primarily on spells that aid his hunt for demons. If demons are present, he will try to cast Power Word to empower Banish and then use Banish and Circle of Protection against the dark creatures. He can also use Enchant Weapon, Fast Act, and Mind Lock to assist the other demon hunters accompanying him. He can also cast Teleport and Dispel when the need arises.
- Banish – Thaumaturge 10
- Circle of Protection – Thaumaturge 12
- Dispel – Thaumaturge 12
- Enchant Weapon – Enchanter 12
- Fast Act – Chronomancer 12
- Mind Lock – Soothsayer 14
- Power Word – Sigilist 16
- Teleport – Illusionist 12
Edward’s apprentice Rachel began her career as a warrior before beginning her study of magic under Edward’s tutelage. She still carries her great axe and crossbow with her even though she is now more focused on casting spells than using her weapons.
Edward has gathered three other demon hunters to accompany Rachel and himself. While these hunters are not spellcasters, they are adaptable soldiers who specialize in fighting against fiends. Thieves and thugs hired from local settlements make up the remainder of his warband.
- Demon Hunter × 3 (Forgotten Pacts)
- Thief × 2
- Thug × 3
When Edward casts Transcendence, he repairs the boundary between this world and other planes of existence. Demons will no longer walk as easily between worlds, and the Hunter can finally rest.
Wednesday Wizards is a series of posts that I’m planning to write for the next few months. Each entry will present a wizard for Frostgrave Second Edition with background, spell selection, soldiers, and their goal in exploring the city. These wizards and warbands could be used as-is to start a new campaign or serve as inspiration as you build your own wizard.
