Table of contents

Magic : Wizardry is unknown among the Cherokee, but sorcerers are common. They carry no stigma, unless they use their magic for evil purposes. Arcane spellcasting ability is most often manifested in twins, who are apprenticed to a master sorcerer at an early age. The mastery of arcane magic is a lifelong study; beads, crystals, and magical formulas are often used as material components.

Magic can applied for both good and evil ends — to protect, cure, and foretell, or to harm and curse. Religion : The Cherokee conceive of the world as hanging by four cords at the ends of the four cardinal directions. In their telling of the raising of the land above the waters, it is Water Bug, rather than Muskrat, who recovers the mud from which the earth is reconstituted. One day the sustaining cords will break, and the earth will submerge once more beneath the waters that surround it. The priests of the Cherokee are clerics in OGL terms, with divine spellcasting abilities and a central role in the religious ceremonies of each town.

The Cherokee supreme deity is Yowa YOH-wa , whose name may not be spoken aloud except by divine spellcasters of 5th-level and above. This being is a unity of three other beings, called cho-ta-auh-ne-le-eh CHO-tah-aww-nay-LAY-eh , the Elder Fires Above, who can be thought of as three aspects of the same divine mind. Also prominent in Cherokee religion is Se-lu SAY-loo , Corn Mother, whose spilled blood became life-giving corn — the staple crop of the Cherokee agricultural system.

The number seven figures prominently in Cherokee belief: seven clans, seven cardinal directions north, south, east, west, above, below, and center , and seven ceremonies that define the passing of the year. Most notable of these ceremonies is the Green Corn ceremony, performed when the last corn crop has become ripe. Sports have religious significance in Cherokee culture, especially inter-clan lacrosse games, which are accompanied by ritual observances. Arts : Among the Cherokee, the performing arts of dance and oratory are highly prized.

As in so many other Gentes Priores cultures, dance has a sacred function. Pottery decorated with carved wooden stamps, stone pipes with wooden stems, and wooden medicine boxes rather than medicine bags are other characteristic items of Cherokee artistic production. Food : Corn is the staple crop of Cherokee agriculture, and has great spiritual significance as well. Towns are built around areas of agricultural production, which includes three kinds of corn, as well as squash, beans, sunflowers, and tobacco for use in religious ceremonies. Hunting, fishing, and gathering supplement farming as food sources.

Common wild foods include maple syrup, plums, walnuts, grapes, and cherries. Language : Cherokee speak their own language as an automatic language, which belongs to the Iroquoian language group. They have no indigenous alphabetic writing system, but Cherokee bards have recently begun to adapt the Europan alphabet to their own tongue, to record their lore and beliefs. Names : Cherokee names often include descriptives paired with a noun. Cherokee girls are not generally named after animals. Appearance : Cherokee men wear deerskin breechclouts, augmented by chaps to protect the legs in cold weather or in rough terrain.

Long-sleeved leather matchcoats or ponchos are often worn in cooler weather. An obsidian or copper knife, worn at the belt, is an essential feature of their clothing. Headgear includes either a tall beaverskin hat, or a turban made of hide or cloth. Fur cloaks are added to the outfits of both sexes in winter for extra protection against the cold. Women wear sleeveless, mid-thigh-length dresses of soft deerskin or mulberry bark fiber, belted at the waist over an ankle-length woven underskirt. A cape of deerskin adorns the shoulders.

Cherokee hairstyles vary greatly between the seven clans. The Long Hair clan, appropriately, is known for its elaborately dressed hair. Feathers are only worn in times of war, when single feathers, dyed blood-red, are prepared by priests for distribution to the warriors. Hair is often colored with red and yellow dust. Adventurers : Cherokee might take to an adventurous life to follow a very personal dream or desire, but seldom at the price of endangering the freedom or happiness of others.

Cherokee bard-class characters can be storytellers, dancers, or musicians who tell tales through the medium of dance and song. Their instruments include the water drum, which is a ceramic pot partially filled with water, and fitted with a drumhead of animal skin; a six-holed cane flute; and the bison-horn trumpet. Enchanting Performance : Cherokee bards are treated as having the Spell Focus feat when casting spells of the Enchantment school.

Because the Cherokee live in permanent towns with extensive agriculture, religious leaders of the Cherokee are clerics, rather than druids. They use the standard SRD rules cleric spell list. They are community priests, responsible for the spiritual protection of people, crops, and animals through prayers and sacred dances. They may choose from the following domains: Good, Plant, Protection, and Sun. Their favored weapon is the blowgun, and they must be within one step of a lawful good alignment. See Fey Sp : Cherokee clerics are considered to possess see invisibility at will, as a spell-like ability, but the ability is only applied to invisible fey creatures.

Spontaneous Bless : In addition to the spontaneous casting abilities of other clerics, Cherokee clerics can spontaneously cast the spell bless in place of a prepared spell of the same level or higher. This class represents Cherokee skilled in skirmish warfare and wilderness travel, drawn from the common ranks of the community.

Their extensive wilderness experience allows them advantages in navigating forest terrain, handling wild animals, and knowing the lore of the wild. Cherokee scouts are adept at navigating the mist-shrouded mountains of their homeland, and the many caves that run for miles beneath their slopes, honing their senses to a high degree of awareness. They protect their community from encroaching Europan settlers, and from the evil creatures that lurk in the caves.

Cave Runner : Cherokee scouts are treated as having Low-light Vision, as they can see twice as far as an ordinary human in starlight, moonlight, torch-light, and similar conditions of poor illumination. They also gain Knowledge dungeoneering as a class skill. Cherokee sorcerers are known as dadunesgi dah-dunn-ESS-gee. They are not shunned by the general populace, although powerful dadunesgi may be held in awe or fear by their neighbors. In addition to the usual class abilities of sorcerers, dadunesgi receive the following abilities:.

Spell Focus Conjuration : At 1st level, all dadunesgi receive Spell Focus as a free feat, applied to all Conjuration spells. Red Path : At 1st level, dadunesgi may choose to follow either the red path of fire and war, or the white path of the living earth and peace. Both paths are valued ones, equally important to the safety of the community. Those who follow the red path are treated as being one spellcaster level higher than their actual level when determining level-dependent effects of any spell they cast with the Fire descriptor.

At 4th level, followers of the red path can maximize a single spell with the Fire descriptor once per day, as if they possessed the Maximize Spell feat. The dadunesgi chooses to do so at the time of casting, as a free action. White Path : At 1st level, dadunesgi who choose to follow the white path are treated as being one spellcaster level higher than their actual level when determining level-dependent effects of any spell they cast with the Force descriptor.

At 4th level, followers of the white path can maximize a single spell with the Force descriptor once per day, as if they possessed the Maximize Spell feat. Cherokee witches are called skili SKEE-lee , or owl witches.

Chaotic in alignment, they are generally feared and shunned by other people, taking to the woods and working their magic under cover of darkness. Those of evil alignment are said to drain vitality from living souls, while those of neutral or good alignment only use this power against evil creatures. Their imp is always an owl. Skili receive the following modifications to the witch core class:. Owl Merge Su : At 1st level, skili can merge with their owl once per day.

While merged, skili may cast spells, but cannot speak. If the owl is slain, both the owl and the skili are slain. The effect lasts until dispelled by the skili, or until the next sunrise. At 4th level, skili gain an extra use of this ability per day. At 10th level, they can merge with their owl at will. Constitution Drain Ex : While merged with their owl, skili may drain the vitality of a living creature by making a successful grapple check.

Once pinned, the victim receives 1 point of temporary Constitution drain per round Fortitude save DC 14 negates , to a maximum of one point per class level of the skili. At 14th level, the rate of drain increases to 1d2 points per round. Project Boreas. Search this site.
