When traveling on Centicles’ behalf, Bree relies mainly on her spells and spell-like abilities (see below). But avoiding discovery also demands a healthy dose of Charisma-related skills such as Disguise and Bluff, and Dexterity-related skills such as Move Silently and Hide.
With magic options depleted, she will grab whatever small stone or other item is available to load into her sling and fight from a safe distance. When cornered up close she will resort to her slain father’s trusty handaxe.
|Sling Your Strength modifier applies to damage rolls when you use a sling, just as it does for thrown weapons. You can fire, but not load, a sling with one hand. Loading a sling is a move action that requires two hands and provokes attacks of opportunity. You can hurl ordinary stones with a sling, but stones are not as dense or as round as bullets. Thus, such an attack deals damage as if the weapon were designed for a creature one size category smaller than you and you take a -1 penalty on attack rolls.|

Hailing from an underhill Leprechaun village, I come from a long line of witches and have many living relatives. They have a bad reputation (undeserved).
My family is rumored to have produced an ancestor who ascended to godhood, but we forgot who!
We have a political and military background. In a climactic battle with a Banshee who threatened our community, my parents died to kill it. Its sisters hunt me to this day.
Leprechauns are wee folk who are found in fair, green lands and enjoy frolicking, working magic, and causing harmless mischief. They are typically observed at borderlines, such as dusk and dawn (neither all light nor all dark), the shore (neither all earth or all water), equinoxes and solstices (neither all of one season nor all of another), the treeline (neither all forest nor all field), and when rainbows are formed (neither all storm nor all sunny). Some break out of their comfort zone and try to learn more about their world, seek great treasures (such as gold, fine wine, and fine pipeweed), or seek opportunities to aid those weaker than themselves. Leprechauns are good choices for players who like to play mischievous characters and want some magic to carry out their plans.
Despite their size, full-grown leprechauns can be very dangerous. Their magical powers and high number of skill points and feats are responsible for their total ECL of 8, but their low hit dice are their greatest drawback. The class is built around scaling the spell-like abilities, and their greater invisibility isn’t introduced until 3rd level. At the highest level of the class are the most powerful spell-like abilities and spell resistance.
