神国与教会
【简   介】国度天宇,几乎没有什么比 影孽Shadevari 更加古老。远在艾欧创世之初,光与暗的孪生女神莎尔塞伦涅诞生之前,祂们已在这个无光的暗影世界出现。没有人知道祂们从何而来,是否是幽影本身的产物。

出于让世界回归幽影混沌的渴望,祂们帮助了光与暗之战中落败并遭受重创的莎尔恢复了力量,但祂们与莎尔再造世界的愿望最终落空。阿祖斯在世界的边境之外创造幽影国度的幻像,将阴影领主们吸引而来,而后使用 影星shadowstar,贡德锻造的一枚影之钥,将影孽们关在其中的微型晶壁系中。
在 1364 DR,全部13只影孽中,有4只先后被两代阴影王召唤为爪牙,派去追杀一群凡人英雄,并最终被这些英雄灭杀。
Notes:1、与某项越古老、越神秘就越强大的传统相反,这群影孽战力弱小,已为几位10~16级的英雄灭杀为濒危物种;

2、本处的阴影王,与无冬2原版自创怪物影王,以及有阴影之王头衔的拉洛克无关。

  这些名为 影孽shadevari 的野兽来自 托瑞尔星球Toril 那失落已久的过去,最近被召唤成为了 阴影王Shadowkings 的仆人。祂们是些双足生物,身上覆盖着铁灰色的蜥蜴鳞片。祂们的面部畸形。两根般漆黑的弯曲獠牙如弯刀般从祂们的嘴中伸出。在祂们的额头上长着一只锯齿状的玛瑙独角;邪恶的倒刺则自祂们的胸腔、手臂与头冠伸出;在眼睛所对应部位的浅凹,构成这副可怕面容的最后一块拼图。这些怪兽的手足都有可伸缩的爪子。
Beasts from the long-lost past of Toril, shadevari were recently summoned to be the servants of Shadowkings. They are bipedal and covered with iron-gray lizard scales, with misshapen faces; two black tusks curving like scimitars from their mouths. A single, serrated onyx horn crowns their foreheads; wicked barbs sprout from their chests, arms, and the crests atop their heads; shallow depressions exist where their eyes should be to finish their ghastly faces. The beasts have retractable talons on their hands and feet.

战斗Combat:

  影孽在战斗中迅捷异常。除非对手携带着像 加速术haste 这样的法术,或是带着 迅捷短剑short sword of quickness 这样的物品,否则在战斗轮中祂们总是能先下手为强。只有+2或更好的魔法武器才能伤害到祂们。任何由低级武器导致的伤害将迅速愈合。影孽也有机会打飞瞄准祂们的远程攻击武器。对那些像匕首、长矛或手斧这样的远程武器,影孽必须进行一次成功的对抗AC5的攻击骰。而针对那些像弓箭和弩矢这样的弹射武器,AC调整为2。
The shadevari are very quick in combat. Barring magical spells or items such as haste or a short sword of quickness, shadevari always strike first in a combat round. The beasts are hurt only by enchanted weapons of +2 or better. Any blows from lesser weapons quickly heal. Shadevari also have a chance to bat away missile weapons directed at them. For hurled missiles such as daggers, spears, or hand axes, shadevari must make a successful attack roll vs. AC5. For propelled missiles such as arrows or crossbow bolts, the roll is against AC2.

  如果未陷入近战,那么这样的活动不计入行动,不过祂们每轮可偏转的远程武器数不得超过3。如果已经陷入近战,则每次偏移尝试都将使影孽损失1次攻击。
If not currently engaged in melee such activities do not count as actions, though they can deflect no more than three missiles per round. Once engaged in melee, each deflection attempt costs a shadevar one attack.

栖息地/社会HABITAT/SOCIETY:

  人们对影孽所知甚少,但祂们的历史显然在《阴影之书Book of Shadows》中有所叙述——这是一本神秘巨著,目前由一位 伊利亚巴Iriaebor 的巫师持有。根据传说,历史上只存在过13只影孽,它们在很久以前就主动(或被动)离开了托瑞尔星球。在下文所述事件中,至少已有4只这样的生物被遭遇并摧毁。这对整个影孽种族而言预示着什么,目前尚不清楚。
Little is well known of the shadevari, but their history is apparently recounted in the Book of Shadows, a mystical tome currently in the possession of a mage in Iriaebor. Only 13 of these beasts ever existed according to legend, and they left or were forced from Toril long ago. In the events described below, at least four of these beings were encountered and destroyed. What this bodes for the race as a whole is not known at this time.

生态学ECOLOGY:

  经证实,影孽没有眼睛,似乎是通过气味和噪音来追踪猎物。后者也可能能解释这些生物从空中击飞远程武器的、不可思议的能力;这些野兽敏感的听觉能探测到远程武器在空气中的呼啸声,并确定其位置与轨道,从而躲避或将远程武器击飞。还有至少一位贤者在宣扬这样一种理论:影孽用一些蝙蝠的高亢声音在世界导航。如果这是真的,那么意味着魔法沉默可能将使这些生物失明。(如果你作为DM选择了此选项这意味着影孽的防御等级恶化到4,并失去成功击飞远程武器的能量。)
It has been verified that the Shadevari lack eyes and seem to track their prey by scent and by noise. The latter also may explain the creatures' uncanny ability to swat missile weapons from the air; the beasts' sensitive hearing detects the whistling of the missile through the air and pinpoints its position and trajectory, at which time the creature can dodge or knock the weapon aside. At least one sage has also promoted the theory that the shadevari navigate through the world using the same high-pitched sounds that some bats use. If this is true, it means a magical silence effect might blind the creatures. (If you as a DM choose this option, then the shadevari's AC worsens by 4 and they lose the ability to swat at missile weapons successfully.)

历史History:

  在当代 费伦大陆Faerûn 的首次记录是在 1364 DR。斯内克Snake(一只侍奉 阴影王the Shadowking 的幽魂)派遣了其中一只影孽,追捕 竖琴手卡列丹·卡尔多林the Harpers Caledan Caldorien马瑞·奥玛伦岛Mari Almaren 和他们的盟友。历经追逐与几场战斗后,这只野兽被毁灭了。
The first recorded occurrence of shadevari in modern-day Faerûn was in 1364 DR. One of these creatures was sent by Snake, a shade in the service of the Shadowking, after the Harpers Caledan Caldorien, Mari Almaren, and their allies. After along pursuit and several battles, the beast was destroyed.

  不久之后,另一位新的阴影王开始公开宣告他在 诸国度the Realms 的存在。此君即上文的卡列丹·卡尔多林。他感受到了自己内心的一部分正在改变,因担心他们的安全而逃离了亲友。而这些朋友也追逐着他,并不清楚他逃离的原因。
Not long after that, another new Shadowking began to make his presence known in the Realms. This was Caledan Caldorien. Feeling a part within him changing, he fled from his friends and loved ones, fearing for their safety. These same friends went after him, unaware of the reason for his flight.

  随着他内心的邪恶与日俱增,卡列丹的人格发生分裂。他奋力保持着控制,但阴影王的邪恶有时会压倒并造成巨大危害。被称为幽影的不死生物和所有的“幽影魔法”法师法术都落入了阴影王的掌控。有了这些工具,阴影王造成了大量的破坏。而卡列丹内心的邪恶也释放了3只、而非1只影孽进入诸国度,前往追杀这位竖琴手的朋友。
As the evil within him grew, Caledan developed a split personality. He fought to retain control, but the evil of the Shadowking would overpower him at times and cause havoc. The undead beings known as shadows were under the Shadowking's control, as were all the "shadow magic" wizard spells. With these tools, the Shadowking wreaked much havoc and grew in strength. The evil within Caledan also released not one but three shadevari into the Realms to pursue and kill the Harper's friends.

  经过长途跋涉与许多考验,英雄们迎来了阴影王的“诞生”。虽然无法阻止这一事件的发生,但他们在于影孽的战斗中使新生的国王遭受了重创。这些英雄知道:杀死阴影王很可能让他们的朋友也一同丧命。
After a long journey and many trials, the heroes came upon the Shadowking's "birth." While unable to prevent the event, they mortally wounded the newborn king while fighting the shadevari. The heroes knew that killing the Shadowking could well cost their friend his life as well.

  幸运的是,影孽在一种独特的情景下被摧毁了,而勉强弥留的卡列丹则从国王的尸首中显露。长远来看,他似已命不久矣。
Fortunately, the shadevari were destroyed under unique circumstances, and Caledan emerged from the king's corpse, just barely alive. The prospects for his long-term survival do not appear to be good.
