Gameplay Edit

As a shapeshifter, Cernd's greater werewolf form may prove useful at early stages of SoA, but as its effectiveness withers, he's best used as a dedicated caster rather than a mixed fighter.

When he joins the party, he only has two items which can only be used by him: Staff of the High Forest, a staff which heals him 1 HP every 12 seconds, and Cloak of the High Forest which provides an armor class and saving throw bonus of +1, like Cloak of Protection +1, the cloak however, can be worn when you are wearing a ring or amulet of protection.

In-game biography Edit

When asked about his past, CERND declares in a steady and modest tone that it has been his honor to serve nature in whatever capacity she did call upon him. It is clear that he is a dedicated servant, and though his demeanor is contemplative and well measured, you are certain that he would not hesitate to risk himself if it would best serve the greater balance.
