    Default P.E.A.C.H Earth, Wind, and Fire (A group of NPC's)

    After much deliberation and a lot of distractions, I finally bring to you for your comments and critique Earth, Wind, and Fire. The idea has changed from it's original form to include a merry band of do-gooders.

    Earth, Wind, and Fire

    Earth, Wind, and Fire
    Band of Genasi Entertainers

    Earth,Wind, and Fire is a Genasi group of performers and entertainers who travel around from place to place entertaining as they go. Wistalia the Air Genasi plays a variety of wind instruments including a Longhorn, a Shaum, and a Glaur. Kemimar the Earth Genasi plays percussion instruments, most often an unusually large set of Hand Drums. Urwan the Fire Genasi plays string instruments, usually either the violin or the mandolin depending on his mood and what song they're playing. Solme' Falmar the Water Genasi is the leader of the group and acts as both Front-man and singer for Earth, Wind, and Fire.

    The rest of the group is made up of various peoples who where originally drawn to Solme' Falmar's grace and beauty. Solme' Falmar's lover and cohort, Quarion, is a half-elf, when he's not singing back-up, he is coordinating the pilfering of the other seven while the audience is distracted. The other seven followers bring the total up to twelve. They only take from those that deserve to loose, never robbing the poor or the just. They are always careful to get the permission of the local thieves guild, and never stick around long enough afterward to get caught. They are much loved by common folk not only for the music and stories they share but also the monies they redistribute to those in need. They usually attach them selves to one Halfling caravan or another as they travel from place to place for mutual protection and entertainment.

    History:
    Spoiler
    Show

    The story of how the four came to even be traveling together in the first place, much less forming together into a the band they are today, changes depending on which one is telling the story and who's listening to them. What is agreed on is that they are a much loved source of entertaining song and story, occasionally requested into the halls of great lords who would have their music.
    Since they often travel in the company of Halflings, they have adopted the use of House-wagons. Built bigger than most, of course, for difference in size. The main one houses Wistalia, Kemimar, and Urwan. It is made so that the side folds down into a stage. There is room inside for their belongings and a bed for each. There is also a hearth for cooking and a table to sit at. The second is smaller and houses Solme' Falmar and Quarion, with room enough for their bed, storage for their things, and a workspace for her gem cutting and jewelery. Two more house-wagons house the other seven.

    Appearance: The woman currently playing some sort of wind instrument looks like an elf at first glance but her light blue skin and her white hair that blows in an otherwise non-existent breeze, tells of another heritage. Given her light, almost revealing, clothing, you'd pick her out as an Air Genasi.
    Personality: With a quick tongue and a sharp wit, and nimble fingers to match, Wistalia can sometimes come off as stand-offish. However, once she gets to know you her heart is as warm as the hearth she cooks by.
    Levitate(Sp): Air Genasi can use levitate once per day as cast by a 5th level sorcerer.
    Air Mastery: Air Genasi have a +1 racial bonus on saving throws against air spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every 5 levels the air genasi attains.

    Equipment: +1 sonic warhammer, +1 light mace, +4 composite longbow , +2 chain shirt, hand drums, wand of cure moderate wounds.
    Languages: Common, Halfling, Terran, Elven, Orcish, Gnomish
    Appearance: The man currently playing a pair of drums, looks human at first glance but for the fact that his skin looks almost like stone and his eyes are like black pits that hold much goodness in them. From the simple cut of his earth toned clothing, you'd guess that he must be an Earth Genasi.
    Personality: Of his three friends, Kemimar is the most neutral in his outlook, almost as passive as the stones he resembles. Though he's often slow to show it, his heart does hold the same passion for life so evident in the actions of his companions. He often allows children and halflings to pet and ride around on his mastiff Galancyrr, when the two of them are not off hunting only so much as they need to live off of.
    Pass without a Trace(Sp): Earth Genasi can use pass without a trace once per day as cast by a 5th level driud.
    Earth Mastery: Earth Genasi have a +1 racial bonus on saving throws against earth spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every 5 levels the air genasi attains.

    Skills: Jump +8, Listen +5, Spot +5, Swim +3, Survival +1.
    Feats: Alertness, Track
    Galancyrr is a large, black mastiff. He was named by the halfling children who so often play with him. His name literally means Earth Defender since he is fiercely loyal to Kemimar. He has certainly earned the name many times over, though the “threats” he most often protects Kemimar from are nothing more than curious, if sometimes mischievous children.

    Languages: Common, Ignan, Elven, Halfling, Draconic
    Appearance: The man currently playing a passionate solo on the violin, looks like some sort of elf save for his flame red hair that indeed looks as though on fire, and his eyes that burn with such intensity, you wonder why you haven't caught fire just staring at him. From his flowing red pants and loose fitting gold and red vest, you guess he must be a Fire Genasi.
    Personality: Quit the opposite of Kemimar's passive neutrality, Urwan is the most intensely passionate of the group. His passion for music is matched only by his passion to see new places and share stories about where he's been. Everywhere he goes, he always takes the time to map out his surroundings so that he can point others toward the wonders he has seen. He picked up the Elven Courtblade on his travels through elven lands.
    Control Flame(Sp): Fire Genasi can use cause non-magical fire within 10ft of them to diminish to the level of coals or flare to the brightness of daylight and double the normal radius of its illumination. This ability does not change the heat output or fuel consumption of the fire source, lasts 5 minutes, and may be done once per day. They use this ability as 5ht level sorcerers.
    Fire Mastery: Fire Genasi have a +1 racial bonus on saving throws against fire spells and effects. This bonus increases by +1 for every 5 levels the air genasi attains.

    Skills: Listen +10, Search +4, Spot +8.
    Feats: Weapon finesse, Alertness
    Languages: Elven
    Moriki is a small, black raven. Moriki literally means little black bird. When not looking over Urwan's shoulder, Moriki usually perches on the back of the house-wagon keeping an eye on things or occasionally adding a “melodic” accompaniment to the performances, though curiously never during Urwan's solos.

    Appearance: You find yourself captivated by the woman singing. As you stare, you notice that she would appear to be an elf, save for her blue-green skin and aquamarine hair. Then you notice that her hair seems to be waving about as though she were underwater. The simple, yet elegant blue dress that almost appears to flow around her, reminds you of clear-blue water. You suddenly realize, you've spent the last few minutes enthralled by a Water Genasi.
    Personality: Solme' Falmar's beautiful singing voice is equaled only by her silver tongue. Her ability to captivate audiences is put to good use when in the halls of unjust lords as her followers liberate the ill-gotten gains of her crowd. When she's not performing, she can often be found making intricate pieces of jewelery that she either wares herself or sells for a bit of profit. Some of the simpler pieces she gives away as gifts to the halfligns as thanks.

    first off, you have caused me to grin, for that you can have a cookie. For CR I would say they have an average level of 7 so somewhere around that.

    [Eats cookie] Nom nom nom.

    technically the four main characters being Genasi, each with 7 character levels, they are all ECL 8. If I understand the way 3.5 rules work, that means that on their own they would each be a lvl 8 encounter. Since there are 4 of them plus a lvl 5 cohort and 7 lvl1 followers, that somehow raises, the problem is I don't know how to calculate how high.

    Why not use the handy dandy Encounter Level calculator on the WotC site?
    You can find it here: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/20010320b

    It looks like all of them together are EL 12. Each genasi is CR 7. At least that's what I'm getting.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    If I've used the calculator correctly then yes the group would be CR12 maybe CR13 if you throw in all the lvl1 followers.
