The remnant are those Dragon Lance characters who have accepted
The Word (Jesus) as their Savior and Lord. They worship Ava (God
The Father (also known as His true name hohy (Yahweh). They are
filled, sealed, and indwelt by and with The Kamikaze (also known
as the Divine Wind, Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost). The Tri-Unity
(or Trinity) is known as the High God, or just God. The Three
persons of the Tri-Unity are one in essence, purpose, and
meaning, but they each have individual roles and many
The Creed of the Remnant is their statement of faith:
I believe in Ava, maker of Heaven and Kyrnn.
I believe in The Word, His number one son, conceived
by the power of the Kamikaze, I believe in the virgin birth.
I believe that He was bruised for our iniquity, crucified for
our sins, and hung between two thieves, and died.
I believe that He defended, and set the captives free.
I believe in the resurrection, on the third and glorious day.
I believe that He ascended, and prepares a place for me.
I believe that the Bible is the only standard of faith and
practice as given to us from Kamikaze through his holy
prophets and apostles. I believe that Kamikaze is alive
in me, and will guide me, and my spirit will bear witness
to Kamikaze. I believe that the Word will come back,
to judge the quick and the dead, but no man knows the day.
(Kamikaze = Divine Wind, ie. Holy Spirit. Pneumo means wind or
spirit in greek. Ava is Hebrew for Father)
If their old god affiliation is a god of Good, the god
affiliation is still maintained, but now the focus is worship of
God. The old god is now see for what it is; and Angel of Ava
(also called saints of old , meaning saints before man was able
to become a saint himself). Because of this change of focus,
Clerical and Druidic spells are now referred to at Prayers.
Prayer casters that become part of the remnant no longer pray to
their Angel, but now pray to Ava. Ava can grant any Clerical or
Druidic spell that is under the category of a good Angel, and the
Clerical class character is no longer restricted by his Angel s
Characters that are not good, are turned into any Good alignment
of their Choice with not penalties, save spell availability.
Magic User type characters are restricted to White Robe spells
Because of their possession by the Kamikaze, they receive a bonus
of 1d6 non-weapons proficiencies, called Spiritual Gifts .
These proficiencies are rolled against the characters Wisdom.
The Character can have any from the current lists of non-weapons
proficiencies, or may choose one to increase his skill in one he
already has turning it into a Wisdom based Spiritual Gift,
instead of it s current base of operation.
Spiritual Gifts are effected by the characters sin level. For
each pride point a character earns (for doing evil or selfish
acts), the character is at a -3 to his Wisdom roles for Spiritual
Gifts. These pride points can be removed by Confessional Prayer.
There may also be other negative effects as the DM determines.
In addition to the other non-weapon proficiencies, a Remnant
character can get s Spiritual Combat and Confessional Prayer for
free, and can purchase these additional non-weapon proficiencies.
Spiritual Combat I - Cost 0 slots, 2 slots per additional level.
The Player quotes for memory a Bible passage. The player has 10
seconds to say as much of the passage, including the reference,
as he can. If he says it correctly, the number of words spoken
is counted as damage against the intended target (single target
only). This ability may be raised by spending 2 non-weapon
proficiency slots to do double damage. The max allowed is a
multiplier by 10. After each verse is quoted, it is written in
Ink on the Character s permanent record sheet, and can never be
Spiritual Combat II - Cost is 2 slots. This allows the Player to
quote a passage of scripture from memory. The player says the
passage, including the reference, and is timed while saying it.
For each 10 seconds of time, the Spiritual Combat took a combat
round to get off. If successful, the DM will determine a
miraculous outcome based on the Scripture cited for that time,
place, and enemies. The Scripture cited must be written down, as
per Spiritual Combat I.
Prayer as Skill - Cost is 1 slot per Spell Level. This allows
the Character to take a Good prayer from the Clerical or Druidic
Spell lists, or a White Robe Spell and make it a skill based on
Wisdom, which can be cast at any time, as many times as the
character wishes, with one exception, it must be to build up the
party (the Body of the Remnant).
Confessional Prayer - Cost is 0 initially, and can be increased
by 1 Slot. This allows a Character to quote a Bible verse
(minimum of 10 words, and takes an entire round) to purge 1 pride
point counted against him if he says it correctly from memory.
This can be increased to do double confession (purge two pride
points) for a cost of only 1 slot, but can not be increase beyond
Theology - Cost is 1 (0 for Holy Order of the Stars initially).
This allows the character to recall learned systematic and
biblical theology, as well as, develop new systematic and
