Fellowship of the Flying Paladin
This is the official home page and information server of the Fellowship of
the Flying Paladin, a role-playing group of some renown. It

The Fellowship of the Flying Paladin currently
- One Game-Master (DM, GM, whatever) - Eli Bar-Yahalom, known as the
Massi of the Universe of Mirn-Kaia.
- The following characters with a considerable history:
You are invited to click a character's underlined name to
obtain a description of that character as written by his/her
player, with the DM's notes and additional material.
- Letto, the Flying Paladin
human from a wealthy family, a classical example of knighthood, devoted
to the service of the great god Voris. A magical transformation
has given him a pair of mighty wings.
[Played since October 1992 by Mr. Lior Schneider; for short periods of
time he was temporarily replaced by Mr. Sela Gershuni, and now (Lior
being called to military service) by Mr. Raanan Shlomi].
- Orion, a somewhat fat and
human, a priest of high rank serving Rikkli, goddess of the Sun and
Light (and previously an equally devout priest of another sun-god,
Darish). A quiet man and logical thinker, he plays a prominent role in
every decision made by the party - yet his ultimate faithfulness is given
to the Power he serves.
[Played since October 1992 by Mr. Nir Arad].
- Luwain, a jolly, careless
happy-go-lucky adventurer, a bard of sorts, who doesn't give a damn about
anything, including the mystery which seems to enshroud his origin.
[Played since October 1992, changed hands until in December 1992 he
became firmly Mr. Nir Arad's second character].
- Snim, more fully Tsint,
HaQuidesitsuhur, NoitRaTsed AmiSakar MeistRaKan, DHannaMeRTsami - a
mage of the tsint (elvish) race, currently hiding his face, for he
has become an undead of terrible appearance and fate; a true cornerstone
of the world's greatest quest.
[Played since November 1992 by Mr. Sela Gershuni].
- Baturlan, or
the Blessed of the Lan family, a bard, dreamer and prophet of the
red-skinned Tsji race, who in his exploration of himself reaches
often to the very borderline of reality - and sometimes beyond it.
[Played since December 1992 by Mr. Barak Friedman].
- The Hidden One, a
bearded human (bald until recently),
High Priest of Lentu, god of creation (and also a lumberjack when the
occasion presents itself).
[Played since February 1993 by Mr. Dovi Grinberg].
- Tei HaTor, a woman who changes
colour like a chameleon and has
two butterfly's wings; the ex-wife of Luwain and ex-girlfriend of
Orion, she is a priestess of Kaia, the incarnation of Life. Her
father is found to be a very unique black cat, and her mother is,
apparently... well, herself.
[Played since March 1993 by Mrs. Yulia Arad].
- Khontak of the Lan
family, the younger brother of
Baturlan looking almost exactly like him. A living embodiment of
the Tsji race of wanderers, he is a bard, a poet and a musician.
Until recently Tsera's boyfriend.
[An NPC, played since April 1993 by the DM].
- Prof. Siweha Yovi Tana or
just Friends (also named
the Pool of Reason) - by far the
strangest member of this strange collection of creatures, this being is a
colony of information - a conglomerate of more than a billion
entities, each one of whom is but a single opinion. Siweha's metabolism
is based on information, and he strives to enhance his knowledge about
the universe by exploring the metaphysical discipline of Nirodiwe.
[Played since July 1993 by Mr. Gabriel Frank].
- Qaggh (formerly
Yenkirlan or Yenkir of the
Lan family) - a woman in constant search for self-development.
Originally a Tsji of the same family as Baturlan and
Khontak, and for a certain time even the latter's girlfriend, she
has started to worship Mendrin, the embodiment of magic; when she died,
her soul was the subject of a deal between the forces of Mendrin and the
realm of Death, thus she returned with a new name (meaning "time") and a
spirit built of Mendrin's essence.
[Played since November 1993 by Miss May Kleinman].
- Tsera, a creature from an
abstract mathematical universe who
has entered the world of Mirn-Kaia to learn about applying her knowledge
to practical models, and found herself entangled in a maelstrom of emotions.
Until recently, Khontak's girlfriend.
[Played since February 1994 by Mrs. Maya Bar-Yahalom].
- Meindan, a very young (17
years) daughter of the Race of the
Mandolkan, the people whose life is the magic of Mendrin. She is a
naive and pure paladin of Mendrin, striving only to eliminate the force
of Chaos (which is also the extremal Law) - Murdin, which is bound to
bring the world to its end.
[Played since November 1994 by Mrs. Yulia
- A creature, shifting constantly between shapes, genders, races
and names (already known as Lin, KorLan, Vernol and
Kuwa - don't confuse with a lost university of
the same name! - and now referred to by a silent negative nod of the head),
representing, it seems, the same destructive force of
Murdin that Meindan is
fighting against. [Played since November 1994 by Mr. Nir Arad].
- Kasandra, a lovely and
naive female creature from the Layered World, displaying true affection
to the fellowship and much more than that to Orion - which leads people
to suspicion that something with this Miss is amiss. [Played
since August 1995 by Mr. Adi Marcus].
- Fen, a slender woman who,
though looking young, has centuries of experience as a diplomate in a
world where diplomacy is more substantial than physics. [Played since 31
Aug 1995 by Mrs. Yulia Arad].
- The following new character (about whom next to nothing is
known to the other party members, thus no information will be disclosed):
- Maldrim "the Spellweaver" [Played since 28 Sep
1995 by Adi Marcus].
- The following people accompanying the party [non-player
- Horrors, Letto's intelligent heavy warhorse. Its
peculiar intelligence, very high for a horse, leads the
party sometimes to ask itself, who is wiser - the horse or its owner?
(Especially that Horrors has recently also acquired wings...).
- Tsalhi Lonir, a skeleton. In life he had been a tribal
hero, and after dying and defeating Death he has become a Sword in the
hand of those who represent Bayaseda, Death's incarnation.
- The hope for the resurrection of the following dead
- Gadhallari [Played by Daniel Cohen].
- Warbint [NPC].
- The cherished (more or less) memory of a number of characters
irrevocably gone: Alex Sternschein's Nutari, Vered
Cohen's Marla, Tamir Bustanai's Lazuli,
Daniel Cohen's Getalby, Shai Avnon's Shnaud,
Avi Marcus' Sahgup and Lurnil, Hayek Wisam's
Cnoctau, and a whole gallery of characters by Adi Marcus:
Sirqens/Linquar, Yani, Dino, Lotmiras, Larkhan and Skinrol.
