TACTICS

Doom-seer Saron usually knows what’s coming his way long before it has reached him, and thus will be prepared for whatever threat he should face. He will usually prepare with as many defensive spells he can and preferably start combat at a range using his ranged spells and gambling on his gloves of arrow snaring and damage reduction to stop any incoming ranged attacks. If anyone should come into melee he has no qualms about casting Cloudkill since he’s immune. He will try to use a combination of stunning fist, trip and paralyzing touches as is best suited to the situation at hand. If cornered or facing massive opposition he will use his transformation spell.

DESCRIPTION
Doom-seer Saron is a gaunt, almost skeletal figure with pale, almost porcelain like skin stretched thin over his skull. His face is perpetually locked in a cold, doll-like expression and despite its youthful appearance looks ancient. He is bald and blackened veins can be seen through his skin. His eyes are milky white orbs, but an eerie blue light shines from behind them, most visible in the dark or when Saron’s face is obscured by his hood. Saron is always unarmed and wears only a simple dark grey and hooded robe. A simple rope belt keeps his robe in place and he wears a thin, thorned circlet made of a dark metal. Sarons voice is dark and ominous, he usually speaks in a deep, yet clear whisper, but his voice will quickly change into a thunderous boom if he’s angered. Under his robe he keeps a simple silver medallion set with a blue gem. The gem is always covered in a layer of frost and has a slight inner glow. Saron is an enigmatic figure whose presence has been recorded several hundred years back and in various cultures and civilizations. He usually appears right before some great catastrophe or cataclysm. He offers warnings to those willing to listen, but the warnings always come with a price. Desperate seekers of lore might try to seek out the Doom-seer, but locating the lich should be no easy task, and the price of admission should be more than mere gold. The history and purpose behind the Doom-seer could lead to many adventures and even be the focus of an entire Campaign.

PERSONALITY

Saron’s motivations have puzzled scholar’s and adventurer’s for centuries. What purpose does this figure have for his warnings? Saron seems bereft of any emotion and no amount of scrutiny seems able to penetrate his ice cold exterior. Yet there are those who have been able to touch upon Saron’s past and his true humanity. Although centuries of undeath have driven any amount of compassion and mercy out of the lich, he has been known to have his times of melancholy and contemplation. A story even claims that the lich once fell in love, but that he saw the girl’s demise in a vision and eventually succumbed to his undead nature and let history pass, costing him his love, and some claim, the last of his humanity. Sages have speculated that Saron is the messenger of the Gods, prophesying their designs for a price. Others believe he might serve darker forces. The truth has yet to be determined.
