Tal, the "Pusher"
Hi guys, i just got a big time off and i'm putting some things onto the forums from the RtToee games i've been running from the past yr. First off, this is the Tal Chammish i've been using in my game - i didn't really like the idea that Tal was just a generic rogue, so i dug up my psionics handbook and made him a telepathic drug pusher. " Come on, just a lil' bit won't hurt..."

He's been horridly effective since then - nobody even suspects his involvement with the cult, and the party even recruited him as a hireling when he disguised himself (whereupon, of course, he betrayed them :-P)

I'll present him at three different character levels, that my PCs met him at. Hope this is of use!

Re: Tal, the "Pusher"
This is the last form of Tal as i've used him. He's subbing out for one of Hedrack's Assasins in the Outer Fane - i've made him an assasin, of the more cerebral kind... check out the Mind's Eye here for details :hat

Re: Tal, the "Pusher"
Good stuff. If you want to reformat Tal and the psionic warrior flunkies more like the BoB thread for splatbook changes, I'd be happy to post it there for posterity.

Anyone else have additional comments?

thanks! i'll love to have this entered into the BoB. I'll just have to change it to follow the same pattern of stat-blocks like the others in the BoB, right?
