    Clarice Isilviere

    D&D 4e? The version I'm putting up is D&D 3.5. I don't have 4e, and I'm not going to buy 4e. So, I'm scratching my head . . .

    We don't have any useful way to represent BR type characters in 4e, stick with 3.5 for the indefinite future.

    Sorry... there were bits I have never seen before in reference to 3.5 so I thought that you were trying to indicate that it had a 4e Warlock class... will fix.

    A few language bits to quibble with, more on NPCs than on this character:

    - "Stanisslav" is that the canon spelling? I don't think I've ever seen a Slavic name or word with the double-S in it.

    - "Amirah bint Isilviere" shouldn't be the wife of an Isilviere, as I'm pretty sure "bint" is Arabic for "daughter of." Unless the paladin married a cousin?

    - And shouldn't Nesirie paladins all be female?

    Well, the spelling on the first: Stanisslav, is wrong. It's Stanislav.

    Are you sure about the second?

    I don't think so. I believe there are exceptions.

    About Elton Isilviere being a male paladin of Nesirie....

    Yes, the "canon" rule is that only females are such paladins, but would I be right in saying that this Elton is a personal project/PC for our Elton Robb, and that is why they share a portrait? If so, then I suspect House rules/Campaign rules came in and made Elton an exception to the canon rule.

    Sorontar,
    whose other backup character is a male ex-sailor who he would love to have been able to make a paladin of Nesirie

    I set up the pages of the sword mage candidates, so I spelled it with two ss's. I thought that's was Elton asked for, and didn't worry about the non-standard nature, since its a Vos name, not actually Russian. But I'm happy to assume I got it wrong.

    I moved the page and changed the name on the identities page.

    As for Arabic naming, I like this link from the SCA.
    http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/arabic-naming2.htm

    This would suggest she might be Amirah al-Isilviere (of the house of Isilviere) though we conventionally link women with their maiden names.

    I'm not sure what her Khinasi maiden name would be.

    Something like 'Amirah bint-(father's first name)', according to the article cited above, or something related to her family's home or occupation.
