Archeon – The Watchers

Lorthain the Archeon

Lorthain the Archeon

The magic users of Uteria are watched over by the Archeons, or more commonly called; the Watchers. After the war against the Warlock King, Olaekin Baleband, the last of the wizards who served the United Kingdoms (Aradan, Norhand, and Endamas) formed the Council and began to put forth rules to try and stop the wide use of ruinous magic. They formed the Archeons and trained them in ways to stop magic. Over the 700 years since the end of that war, the Archeons have become quite powerful, not just traveling the lands, but also keeping an eye over all the tower to make sure none begin to use forbidden magic. There are many different factions of Archeons, those who travel the lands hunting Nulthari (The Hunters, called witch hunters by commoners), those who keep an eye over those in Eredar (the Order of the Tower), and those who pair up with an Otari wizard as a guardian and partner (The Keepers).

They have the ability to nullify magic, as well as cut a person off from the energies around them. This takes a great amount of power, and often it takes many Archeons to take down a powerful Nulthari, and even more to permanently pacify a Nulthari.

Level 1

Magic Sense: When an archeon spends time in a place, or with a person or creature, they can detect if magic has been used, and can also sense if it was ravaging magic. They must spend half an hour in the area or with a person to detect this automatically. If an archeon witnesses the use of magic, they can tell if it is ravaging magic with a DC (Difficulty Class) 15 Awareness check. If an archeon spends an hour with a person and succeeds at a DC16 Awareness check, they can tell if they have used ravaging magic (if the character has any ravage bpoints, the archeon can tell).

Magebane: An archeon can use their Magebane ability once per round against any creature or person using magic. They can roll two d20s during an attack and choose the highest roll. They can also use it during Heroic Actions.

Level 3

Resist Magic: An archeon gets to roll 2d20 and choose the highest roll on Spell Saves to throw off or resist a persistent magical effect.

Level 5

Extra Attack: You gain an additional attack each round.

Level 6

Spell Shield: Once per encounter as a move action an Archeon may create a shield that blocks magical energy. The shield extends behind the Archeon up to 10 ft. This negates any magical spell damage, including Area of Effect. This does not stop the spell, targets outside of the Archeon’s Shield will take damage as normal. An Archeon can maintain a shield for 4 rounds.

Level 8

Disruption: Once per encounter, as a move action, an Archeon can disrupt a Mage’s ability to cast magic or cancel a spell already in effect. The target must be within 40’.

Each round a Mage must make a Heroic Action (Spell Ability vs Archeon’s Choice) in order to cast spells or spend mana. An Archeon can maintain disruption on a mage by spending a free action each round. 

Spells of any mana cost are automatically canceled for as long as the Archeon maintains concentration. The cost of concentration varies per spell. 3 Mana or lower (Free Action), 5 Mana (Move Action), 7 Mana (Combat Action). When an Archeon stops concentrating or is knocked unconscious the spell becomes active again, unless the spells duration is complete.
