Engail Burner

"Ahh… So you wish to hear the story of the Engail." leaning forward on his staff, the old man whispered as the children stared up into his blind eyes. "The god war was set upon the world and the great evils did bring death and darkness. The gods needed messengers to take up the call to war, and yet they had none that could spread the word faster than the wind or as surely as they themselves. They held against their enemy, every hand held shield or blade, yet none could part from the battle." He paused allowing the candles to flicker for effect. "A young lad who lived near the edge of the world, laboured away mining for the gold, unaware of his very lineage. Now I'd tell you his name but its a fair bet you know it well. Now, Now I'll be making it worth y'er while, so don't pout." Raising his hand to the pouting faces he clearly could not see. "How'bout a box of baked ginger from old lady Maidrin to the first lad, or lass who guesses it rightly. You only get one guess, so you best be sure. Now, lets see were was I." he leaned back for effect, as he devoured a piece of baked ginger.

Favour:

The Engail's invisibility and magic are all derived from an additional stat called Favour. This stat measures how much of Nox's favour they have earned and how much he is willing to grant them. Should an Engail's favour drop to zero then they have fallen from favour and their stat becomes Disfavour. The Root of Favour is equal to the average of a characters Circles & Agility. Any lifepath from the Shadow Wing sub setting automatic receives the Disfavour stat. Those with Disfavour tend to die quickly as they are generally hunted down by Favour Seekers. The disfavoured gain their magic from Wayids-Naz or another dark deity. The following questions augment the stat at character creation:

Have you ever been seen by a wingless?
-1 to Favour/ +1 to DisFavour
Have you ever been clipped?
-1 to Favour/ +1 to DisFavour
Do you have the Colourful or Impressive Plumage traits?
+1 to Favour/ -1 to DisFavour for each that you have.
