Grand Duke Sir Terarin of Shadowdale, Last Prince of the Borderlands and True Heir to the Noble House of Andalsa

"After asking an 11 year old if he had armor over his groin (because he had a lot on his torso), and then proceeding to nut shot him, I have determined that this may be the perfect way that an arch nemesis is produced."



Monster design by Viscount Scarecrow for the May 2013 Crown Coronation

  • Armor: 6 points of natural non-sectional points of invulnerability that can be healed
  • Weapons: a single melee weapon (Seige, indestructible)
  • Immunities: fire, extends to equipment
  • Innate Magical Ability : Instant cast Lightning Bolt (unlimited bolts)
  • Natural Lives: 1
  • Cannot be resurrected
  • Cannot carry any enchantments and cannot benefit from any effect that can remove people from combat such as teleport or Circle of protection
  • If killed by any means other than a weapon of dragon slaying they are to be considered subdued but can WALK back to his general or the Dragon Wizard. When he reaches one of them the subdual effect will end in 60 seconds. When the end of the 60 count is reached all armor mended, all equipment is repaired and all wounds are healed. If stuck by a weapon of dragon slaying during this time they are dead.
