Author's Note:
This is a little "toy" one of my characters is toying with. I
calculated the Karma needed and figured I would not have that much
for sometime so I decided to write out what I would like it to be
rather than what it has become. Sorry if it sounds too munchkin.

Archtype: Free Spirit (Ally- Metaplane of Earth)
DreamKiller is a long black broadsword with the word DreamKiller
inscribed in silver across the blade in Japanese.
DreamKiller is the former ally of an ork combat mage. Designed
as an ally, DreamKiller served his master faithfully for several years
before he (the ork), was killed in Hong Kong. DreamKiller was designed
as an ally and upon his creation was a force 4 ally. In addition, he
was taught Swords (6) upon creation and given a wide range of spells
that would help the wielder. Upon becoming free, DreamKiller found it
could hide it true nature (Masking) and due to its previous exposure
to magic and the metamagic powers of its creator, it could destroy
the spells of other (Dispelling). Lastly, DreamKiller found he could
control his wielder should they prove unruly (Possession)
DreamKiller's main motif is to find a mundane wielder and aid
that wielder indirectly without fully disclosing its true identity.
In exchange for this, often exacts a price without the wielder's
knowledge (basically I anticipate that the next time someone wielding
it screws up and proclaims Karma, the karma will go to the sword if
the sword can bail them out- spell defense, etc.). DreamKiller fears
magicians and if its aura masking is pierced it will either flee or
try to find someway to have its mundane wielder kill the nosy magician.
Statistics: (Optional)
Force 5, Spirit Energy 3. The sword is a Unique Enchantment
Spirit Foci (5) which raises DreamKIller's physical attributes by 5.
Free Spirit Powers: Aura Masking, Possession, Dispelling, Sorcery.
Spells: Death Touch, Inc Reactions +3, Armour, Mind Probe, Heal Deadly,
Personal Anti-Spell Barrier, Ram.

Could someone bounce me a copy of my character back to me.
I received a message that it was distributed but did not receive
a copy.
