Instruments of the Inquisition
+5 to Pursue 1/day
Battles was not option, unless of course you chose to die. Death seemed a bit of an extreme option, and the brutish horde of corce around did not seem particularly bright. With this in mind, you have brought a deep scowl to your face and eyed the orc captain. He would be the first to die, followed by the orce beside him; at least, that is what you told him. The rest might eventually bring you down, but how many of them were prepared to face death over such a small, insignificant object. Your intimidation tactics worked well and the orcs handed over the odd shaped device, then disappeared as Drogan’s test ended. Drogan told you to keep the instrument, as it was a holy item of the inquisition. The blade may be used once per day to increase your peruasion skill for a short period of time.

Aribeth de Tylmarande is said to have been born in Thundertree, a town in the Neverwinter Woods of uncertain parentage; some say she came from a union between half-elves, others say between a moon elf and a human. The village was wiped out in an orc raid leaving her the sole survivor of the massacre. Vowing vengeance, she hunted down the perpetrators and slew them all. Unsatisfied, she continued to hunt and kill orcs in an obsessive quest until she was trapped in a sudden blizzard and rescued by a one-armed man she believed an avatar of the god Tyr, who took her to a monastery of Ilmater. Recovering her health there, she learned to be a paladin. She gained such fame that when she moved to Neverwinter, she was named to the elite bodyguard of Lord Nasher, being the first woman and first non-human to be so honored. There she met and became engaged to Fenthick Moss, cleric of Tyr in that temple.
