This towering, stern woman wears her long blonde hair in braids. She carries a reel of golden thread and a pair of shears.
Ancient beyond imagining, the norns are a race of powerful women who hold in their hands the physical manifestation of fate and destiny in the form of golden thread. They watch over all life, intervening with reluctance when called upon or with a vengeance when the strands of fate are twisted and abused by lesser beings. Worshiped as gods by some, the norns do little to discourage this veneration.
A norn stands 14 feet tall and weighs 800 pounds.
Shears (Su) A norn's shears function as a +5 mithral keen speed Scimitar , but only for a norn.
Shift Fate (Su) As an Immediate Action, a norn can force any one target within 120 feet to reroll a saving throw—this ability must be used immediately after the Saving Throw is rolled, and the target must abide by the result of this second roll.
Snip Thread (Su) As a Standard Action up to three times per day but no more often than once every 1d4 rounds, a norn may produce a golden thread linked to a creature's fate and then attempt to snip it short with her shears. The target Creature must be within 120 feet and in the norn's line of sight. The target immediately takes 20d6 points of Damage (Fortitude DC 30 for half). If the target dies from this Damage, the norn has cut through the thread—in this case, the target may only be restored to life via Miracle , Wish , or divine intervention. This is a death effect. The Save DC is Charisma-based.
