    Update #45: Tristian, Favorite Of The Everlight - A Touch of Sunlight

    Pathfinders!

    Meet another one of your future companions: a young cleric of Sarenrae called Tristian.



    The Stolen Lands are unforgiving, known for their dangerous inhabitants and harsh weather, and leave little room for the weak and gullible. Still, even in the Stolen Lands, there are beacons of hope. Tristian is one such individual, forever questing to help those in need, no matter the cost to himself.

    Gentle and kind, it is as though Tristian was born to serve the most merciful of gods. It is not known, whether it has always been in his character or whether the ministry shaped Tristian’s views – one way or another, the compassionate and thoughtful cleric embodies the virtues of his divine lady, the ever radiant Sarenrae. According to the dogma of the Everlight, no being, no matter what heinous acts it committed, should be denied a chance of redemption. It is the way Tristian follows determinedly – even given the unpleasant experiences and disappointments he found during his travels across Golarion, Tristian still believes in redemption for all.

    Tristian never preaches, and shares the teachings of Sarenrae only with those who ask to hear them. His faithfulness mixes well with his good-natured curiosity, inexhaustible kindness, and unfailing belief in the inherent good inside every living person - although you cannot help but notice a trace of sorrow in the young cleric's words.

    Tristian always seeks to help those in need, but his most recent expedition to the Stolen Lands is one of the greatest tests of his spirit. Something wicked has taken root in the swamps and plains of this region – something that makes curses of all kinds much more potent and deadly. In search of answers Tristian unites with a bold adventurer who seeks to bring peace and order to the Stolen Lands. Should you rely on the cleric and invite him into your party, Tristian will look for the most practical way to help – he never preaches his beliefs if not asked to enlighten others about the teachings of Sarenrae.

    Do not let the gentle ways of Tristian fool you – for those who think of Sarenrae clergy as weak are quick to regret it. The Everlight's mercy is generous but not boundless: those who embrace evil and forsake salvation are judged by blade and blood. Tristian knows how to hold his own in a fight – although he prefers to look out for his companions, healing the wounded, and helping any companions who find themselves overmatched or outnumbered. If forced to resort to violence, Tristian relies on his spells – for the sunlight of Sarenrae can bring searing pain as well as healing relief. The cleric wields a small crossbow and scimitar, a favored weapon of Sarenrae. Instead of armor he prefers protective spells and keeping well-measured distance between himself and his enemies.

    Considerate and empathic to the troubles of others, Tristian is an excellent councilor to the realm. As a cleric of Sarenrae, he has a clear sense of duty and can offer sharp insights and wisdom when troubles arise.

    Hail to the kings!

    Uh, short update. Left me wanting more!

    ANOTHER cleric? That's a curious move. A cleric of a CN deity and another one from a NG goddess. Not that I'm complaining, this dude seems interesting. But based on the number of companions, there won't be companions of some classes, am I right?

    Well I'm happy. While I appreciate the crazy dwarven cleric of madness, I'm happy to have a Sarenrae option.

    It is good that both "good" and "evil" have option now. Healer is quite important for a group after all and in theory multiple classes can be melee tank or fighter (even cleric) so having options for healing and magic / long range attacks is good to have.

    Besides we CAN allways multiclass NPC's if we want to so I guess we do not have really a problem let's say "I have 3 clerics in my party what to do?" incase we do PC cleric allso.

    He sounds too nice. Probably has a deep dark secret somewhere. Like he used to eat puppies before he saw The Light.

    Also I like how the compassionate believing in redemption almost christian character named

    Tristian;'D

    Trist is the light (that shows you the way)?

    I like him; if I feel I need a primary healer in my party, he's the likely option to fulfill that. Also his high Wisdom and abandonment of armors means he's a good candidate to multiclass into monk ^_^

    Nice Backstory. Or rather character description as we don't really learn much about his story.

    But... is he an elf? Human? Half-elf? (Aasimar? :P ) The update doesn't say anything about his race and his hood doesn't help either.

    Not wearing armor sounds like an Ecclesitheurge cleric (an archetype who forfeits armor and shield for greater magic powers). But an Ecclesitheurge should not get the Scimitar Proficiency. Not unless he burns a feat on it which would be pretty bad.

    Where is that Video From? I don't remember that location in the alpha. did I miss it?

    EDIT: Elves in Pathfinder have mono-colored eyes. Tritian is Human, to the best of my knowledge.

    That video might well be taken in a new location. They're working on the next alpha build and they're adding TONS of new content to it. Frankly, I didn't have the chance to play much of the alpha, because I'm constantly working. :-/
