    "A pleasure" a female giant of some sort says with a deep bow "I am Sandrose, called Sandrose the Builder. I look forward to working with all of you, although I consider myself an architect I have been known to take on the mantle of a soldier when required of me" Garbed in a pink silk robe and with a great golden headdress in her dark hair she doesn't look like much of a warrior, even considering her size.

    Greetings, fellow Seekers. A voice seemed to come out of thin air next to Sandrose's left ear. She could almost feel the uncarnate passing through her before an elderly geezer appeared in front of the half-giant and the pixie. Lao Tzu at your service.

    Personally, speaks a deep, rumbling voice echoing forth from a truly immense being. I find haste to be... unseemly. As final word washes over the crowd the being shifts his weight, causing a shimmer of iridescent light to cascade through the fine tracery of metals embedded in his flesh. Shrugging slightly to settle the leather strap of his quiver more comfortably across his chest the beast settles a great thumb into the minute space between his belt and hip, drawing attention (perhaps unconsciously) to the fact that all the creature is wearing is a simple loin cloth. It is the will of my Patron that this thing be done, and so it shall. Haste or its lack shall make little difference.

    EDIT: Quick question that'll impact how I do things from now on. Do teleportation effects conserve momentum? By which I mean, if I'm falling and I greater teleport myself to a spot I can see on the ground do I still hit it at the speed I was going when I teleported myself? I'd be inclined to say no, but I know DMs who'd be inclined to say yes, so I figured I'd ask first.

    EDIT2: Well, as you can tell from those rolls my strengths don't really lie in the finding of the target, lol.

    No, but the sudden stopping in momentum from teleporting may sicken or nauseate someone.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with anything related to the game, but do either of you happen to read the Dresden Files? All I can ever think of when I see a pixie PC is Toot-Toot.

    A demonic figure brushes purple hair off armored mithril shoulders, a forked tail lazily swinging behind it. "Greetings to you. I am Karai, a servant of my lord Pelor." She folds her arms and settles into a position where she can see everyone in the room. A scabbard on her back catches the light, showing the strange design needed to hold a double-bladed sword. It's fairly large. "I have been told to complete this task, and will work with any and all of you to see it done."

    Might be worth it out of combat just for the RP value. I was thinking of using my Greater Teleport to be a kind of paratrooper, only without the "para." Though, honestly with my DR and regen I might just let myself hit the ground... Hey, would a Huge creature weighing a touch over 2 tons impacting the ground from say... 100ft in the air be enough of a jostle to knock over smaller creatures? Might be a fun way to enter battle.

    A vigorous shout followed by a scream from up above can be heard, and looking up you can see someone in trajectory at no less than a hundred feet up in the air. The figure careens mightily towards the ground outside, in a circular arc not unlike a catapult's boulder on a siege.

    An echo drifted on the wind,
    sang deep and wild and free;
    Oh you can be king of the castle
    but I am lord of the sea.

    -Judith Nichols, Lord Neptune
    Calm as the deep waters, Pure as the snow

    Kuai propped himself up against the cold hard ground, trying to wriggle his hands free from the fetters. It had only been last night--the night he was caught--since the blizzard started, but the chilled metal bar had already numbed his bare back . He never once winced for his fresh wounds, and sure as hell won't for this damning cold! Please. No man can ever comprehend the far greater hell that he had already been through!

    Oh, only if he knew.

    The sound of metal grinding against metal woke him up. He figured that something must be wrong with his vision, because even in the monochromatic darkness he can clearly see that the person at the cell-gate was Old Jizi. You read that right. Old Jizi. "Why is the old man here?" would be his initial thought, but the knee to the jaw connected faster, and all that Kuai can muster to think of before fainting was an ambiguous "Why?"

    "Who ordered the hit on Minister Zhang?", the voice brought him back to reality. But not quite on the real part. Kuai was stil nonplussed; unlike the strict parents and the monastery shifu, Jizi to him was a homely father figure--tender soul, ever smiling, ever encouraging, always giving advice to kids in how to be better individuals.

    "I have no idea, I--", his alibi, as well as four of his molars, was unceremoniously knocked down his throat. Kuai then got acquainted with every nook and cranny of the small prison cell as he was tossed around like a rag doll, his whole body continuously firing up signals of pain in unison during the whole ordeal.

    Drifting between moments of consciousness due to pain, Kuai's simply felt incredulous. The last time he saw the old man was at the Lunar Festival last week, cheering heartily, a stick of grilled squid in hand, and dancing to the beat of the drums. He recalls his late grandfather's words: "For someone from the Shifting Crest Monastery, the eccentric old Jizi sure doesn't act the part."

    And his grandfather was still right, in a way: the Shifting Crest Monks don't belong in prison cells, they don't suddenly jump on you, and they don't suddenly turn into complete monsters.

    The pain was already past unbearable.at this point, but it's just been short of an hour. Instinctively, he realizes that the worse is yet to come. "I'm Kuai... fifth street... Don't you remember me, Pops?", he pleaded.

    "I taught you the virtues ninety-nine years ago. I tried to lead you towards the right way. Why did you lose your precious honesty, Kuai? You live like a criminal, you die like one." It's that familiar soothing voice again! Even with his neck broken, Kuai tried to look up. Surprisingly, he still managed to feel the shiver running down his spine, as he saw the serene countenance and homely smile of the man who just beat him to within an inch of his life.

    Kuai was barely thinking rationally at this point, only that he wants the pain to stop. Once and for all. He quickly ratted his out collaborators, to which Jizi easily confirms as an honest statement--five high-ranking military officials, scums of the world who chose to break the law they swore to uphold and defend.

    After getting the information he needed, Jizi grabs Kuai by the neck. As the criminal approached his final moment, for some reason, he remembered his first meeting with Old Jizi:
    It was nearly a century ago... I was trying so hard to break a bundle of boughs for firewood, when Old Jizi approached and told me, "We are strong when we stand with another soul. When we are with another, we cannot be broken." As if to demonstrate, he then picked out a lone stick and pressed it between his thumb and forefinger.

    And then came a loud snap.
    Spoiler: Combat Role
    Show
    Main
    Jizi specializes in battlefield control in the form of Spells, Maneuvers, and special attacks. While some of the control can be bypassed by Freedom of Movement, he can cancel that effect by grappling his opponents and pinning them in an Anti-Magic Field. He can also do respectable damage if need be, although he usually prefers to support allies with his primary specialization.

    Extra/Addon(will likely be removed if possible, once not needed)
    As supplementary expertise (meaning if nobody else fills the niche), he can also be a scout (high Wis + Spot/Listen), Heal (as the spell), poor man divination (Substitute Domain + Knowledge Domain), and be a taxi (Shades, but he'll replace the feat if this is covered by the party). The Arcana Insight maneuver from the Solaris Arcanum discipline might be used for skill checks in case there are no skill monkeys, or if a niche-skillset is needed.

    Additional Notes
    Wisdom is the most important ability score in the build, as it gets added to saves, AC, attack, damage, trip, disarm, and sunder. It also effectively replaces Strength, so the default attack, damage, STR checks, and STR-based skill checks are now keyed off Wisdom. Another trick to utilize Wisdom is to Extend Shapechange into an Aeshkrau Illumian, before resting to gain bonus spell slots for day-long buffing (I believe these slots fade away once the modifier is back to the normal Int) that is now keyed off Wisdom too, instead of Strength. Some Wavekeeper abilities are also normally based on Strength, so they are now keyed off Wisdom.
