Hi,I've thought it over a bit.Generally speaking, I don't see how a dwarven order like this would accept an elf (regardless of who that elf is).In this particular case, the fact that two monks respect him is still not sufficient I think, as it's not them he needs to convince, it's more the whole church of Vorax. Which would then be no mean feat and if (if!) we'd allow it it'd have to be the result of several CDQs and maybe a WLDQ.The fact that he is alrady lvl 20 doesn't influence it, it's his being elven.Quote from: MasterjackI know an elf named Krysthalien he worships Vorax. He is an accomplished fighter (level 20 Monk). He has approached Beli Stonewill and Garnet Stonesoul to become a Brother of Battle. Both think he is worthy of becoming a Brother.My question is...Does him being an Elf and already level 20, effect him in any way from becoming a Brother of Battle? If so how?Masterjack

It needs to be mentioned in the organizations thread that the BoB are separate from the official Church Of Vorax based on this.
Personally I'm going to only let Beli wear something that goes with the original description. So far I've seen 5 different types of words to describe head gear. You have Helmets, hoods ,visors, circlets and headbands. In my opinion, out of all those only Helmets are limiting in movement.
I would agree.Unless the visor looks like this one which is more a helmet, but still called a visor.
That Viking helm doesn't look like it restricts movement much; the neck still has full range of motion. It looks more ornamental aside from the rare deflected arrow though, looks like it needs a chinstrap to keep from falling off in any meaningful combat. Now the kinds of helms that a fullplate wearing warrior might wear might as well be soldered onto the shoulder pads with a 15 pg instruction booklet and can opener for the user to take off after battle. THOSE would certainly restrict movement along the lines of Iron Man's mech suit.
I was wondering from reading the lore of vorax, that human are accepted as Voraxian and I guess BoB, what about half elf?
Alright, just so there is no more confusion. You can wear theres IG rewards as long as they are not in the shape of a helmet. So you get one, but don't wear it until you have changed the appearance?
Regarding helmets, we'll allow the wearing of a helmet, but they would prefer cloth hoods, bands and the like (real ones, not metal helmets customized to look like a hood or headband). Else they'd limit movement too much I think.
Also still waiting on an official word about half elf.
what about the orcish helm?
My current thinking:Brother of BattleRequired:Deity: VoraxClass: Monk Only Race: Any, except for Brownie, Goblin, Half Elf*, Half Giant, Half Ogre, Half Orc, Orc, Wemic or any Elf. Alignment: LG, LNSkills and Feats required to join:Tumble Rank of 15, Weapon Finesse in Unarmed Strike, Blind Fight, Improved Critical in Unarmed StrikeWill join as Initiate, no CDQ required if initiated by existing Brother of Battle. Any further ranks must be gained through CDQ.Ranks: Stone Soul (needs: Diamond Soul feat)Stone Will Stone Foot Stone Palm (needs: Quivering Palm feat)Stone Fist (Master of the Order, WLDQ required)Notes:*Half elves will only be allowed if they have renounced their elven heritage. Half elf characters wanting to join the Brotherhood will need a CDQ to attain Initiate rank.** The wearing of a helmet is allowed, but severely frowned upon. They would prefer cloth hoods, bands and the like as those are light (real ones, not metal helmets customized to look like a cloth hood or headband or something else. These are still metal helmets.)
So two questions come to mind. Will each rank get an item to reflect the rank like before and does the last name still change?
