Descent: Tales of Good and Evil
Leoric of the Book
"If my years of study have taught me anything, it is that I am worthy of the knowledge I possess."
Defense 1 Gray
Each monster within 3 spaces of you receives -1 Damage (it means if a monster rolls 6 and is within 3 spaces of you, you reduce that attack by 1 so it is 5. You can roll the protection dice to further reduce that damage) on all attack rolls (to a minimum of 1).
Action: Perform an attack with a Magic weapon. This attack ignores range and targets each figure adjacent to you. 1 attack roll is made but each figure rolls defense dice separately.
Runic Knowledge: While you have a Magic or Rune weapon equipped, each of your attacks gain: Surge: Suffer 1 Fatigue to gain +2 Damage.
After one too many heated arguments with the Provost, Professor Leoric of the University of Greyhaven was invited to go on an “extended sabbatical.” As an adventurer, Leoric’s constant references to his scholarly texts quickly earned him the sobriquet “of the Book.” Leoric’s sabbatical continues as the former professor applies his magical knowledge in the field and seeks out long-forgotten knowledge and wisdom.
