Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

NPC – Coolhands


Coolhands (Female Elf, Bard 10, Wizard 19)
Title – Mate of the Clanmaster of the Long Runner Clan
Also known as – Dona Ilona de BelCadiz

Alfheim - Beasthunter, Coolhands and Starwatcher
Alfheim – Beasthunter, Coolhands and Starwatcher

AC 800 – Arrived in Alfheim
AC 1000 – E10 (MU 18) converts to Bard 10/Wizard 18
AC 1010 – Brd10/Wiz19


History: Coolhands is actually Dona Ilona de BelCadiz, a Glantrian elf who came to Alfheim to study the Trees of Life and ended up staying with Beasthunter, who won her heart. She has been adopted into the clan and given a use name, but her real name is well known and she does not get either the benefits or the penalties of the use name. However, Coolhands is how she is known now.


Personality: Coolhands is a forthright lady who stands up for herself and her mate. She parted from her family over their dislike of her choice of lifemate. She often seems a little bewildered by life in the forests of Alfheim – it’s not like Glantri.


Appearance: Coolhands is a dark-haired beauty with bronze skin – a typical Belcadiz elf. She wears clothes made of the usual leather of the Long Runners, but cut in a very stylish (as of two hundred years ago in Glantri), civilized style.

Note – Unlike other Belcadiz elves, she has the height to match the elves of Alfheim.

While not a half-elf, or family history of human blood, their short stature has squished their features making the resemblance.

Converting Alhambra Elves in BECMI to 5th Edition – Elves split their advancement from a martial class and a spellcasting class for the first ten levels, then dedicate themselves to either the martial or the spellcasting class for the Letter advancement starting at C and going to M. Alhambra elves prefer Rogue and Wizard as their match.

The Longrunners are the most ingrown of the clans. They have little contact with the outside world and little love for anyone but elves, and not too sure of any from outside of Alfheim. Their territories include both the twisted magic site of Stalkbrow and the good magic sites of Glow Tree, Shadowdown, and Goblin Park. This makes their territory ideal for the study of magic in many different forms. Elves from all over Alfheim come here to study with the master wizards of Pinitel (their clan holding).

The Longrunners are known for their care in costuming and cosmetics. Where other clans may ape human styles, the Longrunners are sticklers for primitive clothes of leather and fur, donning armor only when war is at hand. One faction of the clan is fanatically resistant to the presence of anyone but elves in the clan territory, although clan leadership strongly favors it, especially considering the helpfulness of human druids and wizards in controlling the Stalkbrow site.

Like Red Arrow elves, Longrunner elves tend to keep their real names (and even the real name of their clan) a secret. Instead, they take names indicative of some aspect of their personalities, personal histories, favorite activities, or prowess. These names change over the course of an elfs life. A Longrunner whose name was Hornhunter in his youth, due to his prowess in hunting deer, may become Bugwatcher in later years, as he devotes himself to studying the effects of the twisted magic on local insect life.

Clanmaster Beasthunter is the youngest of the Clanmasters and has a total disregard for the needs of outside contact. He considers Brendian a prissy bureaucrat and Lynnwyl a materialistic fool. At the same time, he has a hard time allying with Dyradyl and Mealidan because of their lack of interest in hunting. His best friend on the Council is Durifern Widefarer
