Wizard Spells Per Day: 5/5/5/5/3/3/2. Base DC = 13 + spell level.

Spellbook: As she is both the Lord of Eveningstar (with many War Wizard friends) and a seasoned adventurer, feel free to give Tessaril access to whatever spells you deem appropriate for your campaign. I recommend that the following new spells from the 3ECS be found in her spellbook: eagle's splendor, gate seal, lesser ironguard, and scatterspray. She typically keeps a number of defensive spells prepared, as well as those that aid in the day to day affairs of her office, such as detect thoughts and eagle's splendor.

Possessions: bracers of armor +5, +2 longsword, amulet of proof against detection and location, ring of regeneration, Purple Dragon ring (3E version can be found in Dragon Magazine Annual #5, pp.104-105), wand of magic missiles (9th level, 23 charges), iron bands of Bilarro, and 6 potions of cure medium wounds in a potion belt (new item from the FRCS3).

Description: Tessaril stands six feet tall, with a slender build and firm musculature, and has intense hazel eyes and long ash blond hair. She typically wears a simple dark blue or green robe or a well-worn but comfortable leather jacket and a matching pair of riding breeches.
