Thrym

To Gods

gray line

King Thrym of the frost giants stole Mjollnir, Thor's hammer, to extort the gods into giving him Freyja as his wife. His kingdom was called Jotunheim.

Thrym was foiled in his scheme by the knowledge of Heimdall, the cunning of Loki, and the sheer violence of Thor. In fact, mighty Thor, son of Odin, later killed Thrym, his sister, and all of his giant kin, which had been present at the wedding reception.

Thor got his hammer back, but does not tell who inherited Thrym's fabulous treasures, given that all of his kin were killed.

Bergfin is a son of Thrym, the Giant of Vermland.

Level Adjustment --

Alter Reality (Su): Thrym exerts a considerable measure of control over reality itself, and his presence can command the very essence of the world around him. This warping of reality manifests in a number of ways. Thrym can use wish when doing so could help him to create the cold of the impending fimbulwinter, triumph over the Aesir, or strengthen his control over the frost giants. Note that in the situation where Thrym and another deity both try to Alter Reality in opposition to each other, an opposed rank check may be necessary to determine how reality is actually altered.

- Thrym can use Alter Reality to cast any inflict spell at will as a standard action; Thrym can apply metamagic feats to the spells if desired, but doing so requires him to forego using Alter Reality for 1 round for each level the feat would normally add to the equivalent spell.

- As a free action, Thrym can assume any size from Fine to Colossal. Thrym can also change the size of up to 100 pounds of objects she touches. This ability allows Thrym to assume any proportions from the size of a grain of sand up to as much as 1,600 feet tall. A radical change in size can have great impact on Thrym’s combat ability. Thrym's Strength, Armor Class, attack bonus, and damage dealt with weapons changes according to the size the deity assumes. Thrym's Strength score can never be reduced to less than 1 through this ability. Also note that use of this divine ability does not affect all of Thrym's characteristics.

- Divine Immunities: Ability damage, ability drain, banishment, binding, cold, death effects, dimensional anchor, disease, disintegration, dismissal, electricity, energy drain, fire, imprisonment, mind-affecting effects, Paralysis, poison, repulsion, sleep, soul bind, stunning, Temporal Stasis, transmutation, Trap the soul, and turning and rebuking.

Domain Powers: Casts chaotic and evil spells at +1 caster level; turns fire creatures/rebukes cold creatures 16/day; may smite 1/day with +4 to the attack roll and +7 damage; Weapon Focus (Greataxe) as a free feat.

Spell-like abilities (Sp): At will: animate objects, blade barrier, blasphemy, chaos hammer, chill metal, chill strike (as flame strike, but with cold), chill touch, cloak of chaos, cone of cold, contagion, control weather, create undead, desecrate, disintegrate, dispel good, dispel law, divine power, Earthquake, harm, ice storm, Implosion, inflict critical wounds, inflict light wounds, inflict light wounds (mass), magic circle against good, magic circle against law, magic vestment, magic weapon, Obedient Avalanche, polar ray, power word (blind), power word (kill), power word (stun), protection from good, protection from law, shatter, sleet storm, Spiritual Weapon, summon monster IX (chaotic and evil spell only), unholy aura, unholy blight, wall of ice, word of chaos.

Thrym casts his spells at 79th level, with the exceptions of chaotic and evil spells, which he casts at 80th level. Saving throws against Thrym’s spell-like abilities are DC 47 + spell level. The saving throw DC’s are Charisma-based.

Possessions: Thrym always carries Aesir’s Doom, a +7 gargantuan icy burst, unholy power cold iron Greataxe. Thrym’s +10 chain mail (sized proportionately for him) also has only a 10% chance of spell failure.

Other Divine Powers:

- As an intermediate deity, Thrym may take 10 on any check. Thrym treats a 1 on an attack roll or saving throw normally and not as an automatic failure. Thrym is immortal, and risks permanent destruction only if he is slain in Jotunheim and only if the attacker succeeds on a rank check. Otherwise, Thrym reforms within Jotunheim after 65 years. If Thrym is slain upon a world in which he is venerated, he is banished from that world and loses jurisdiction in said world. Thrym may attempt to exert influence on that sphere again after 65 years if sufficient worship is available or a suitable ritual is performed.

- Senses: Thrym can see (using normal vision or Darkvision), hear, touch, and smell at a distance of 14 miles. As a standard action, he can perceive anything within 14 miles of his worshippers, holy sites, objects, or any location where one of his titles or name was spoken in the last hour. He can extend her senses to up to five locations at once. He can block the sensing power of deities of his rank or lower at up to two remote locations at once for 14 hours.

- Portfolio Sense: Thrym senses any event involving frost giants or disasters involving cold up to 14 weeks in the past.

- Automatic Actions: Thrym may perform 10 free actions with a maximal DC of 25 which create cold, spread destruction, or are related to frost giants.

- Create Magic Items: Thrym can create any simple or martial magic weapons and nonwritten items that creates cold, are destructive in nature, or are used by frost giants as long as the item’s market price does not exceed 200,000 gp.

Jotun’s Wrath (Unique Salient Divine Ability): Untold millenia of cold rage and longing for Ragnarok have empowered Thrym. As a result, whenever one of the Aesir enters his sensory range, he recieves a +14 bonus to his attack and damage rolls as long as they are present.

Rock Throwing: Thrym may throw rocks with a range increment of 240 feet.

Detect Fire (Sp): Thrym detects fire as a 10th level cleric.

Protection of Winter (Su): In cold areas, (temperature at or below 40 F), Thrym gains a +1 sacred bonus on all saving throws and a +1 bonus to Armor Class. In areas of extreme cold (below –20 F), the sacred bonus is increased to +2 on all saves and AC.

Resistance to Fire (Ex): Thrym has fire resistance 10.

Powerful Grip (Ex): Thrym gains a damage bonus of +11 when he attacks with a Greataxe. This has been included in the statistics above.

Frost Greataxe (Sp): As a move action, Thrym can cause a Greataxe to be sheathed in a layer of intense cold, granting the axe the frost special ability (+1d6 points of cold damage on a successful strike). If he lets go of the axe, the frost dissipates immediately; otherwise it lasts for 10 rounds.

Agonizing Strike (Su): Twice a day, Thrym can focus all the anger and hatred in his frozen heart into a powerful blow. He makes a normal melee attack; if he hits he deals +5d6 cold damage. If the attack misses, the agonizing strike is still used up for the day.

Dispel Fire (Sp): Thrym can dispel fire as a 10th level cleric 14/day.

Icy Greataxe (Sp): Thrym can cause a Greataxe he wields to become sheathed in a layer of intense cold, granting it the icy burst special ability (1d6 points of cold damage on a successful strike, plus an extra 2d10 points of cold damage on a successful critical). If he lets go of the axe, the frost dissipates immediately; otherwise it lasts for 10 rounds.

Disciple of Thrym Spells (Sp) (1st-5th level): 7/7/6/6/4. Thrym casts his Disciple of Thrym spells at 10th level and at 24th level for the purposes of Spell Penetration. Saving throws against Thrym’s spells is DC 22 + spell level. The saving throws are Wisdom-based.

Fast Movement (Ex): Thrym is 10 feet faster than normal.

Improved uncanny dodge (Ex): Thrym retains his Dexterity bonus to AC if caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker, and only loses it if immobilized. Thrym cannot be flanked.

Rage (Ex): The following changes are in effect as long as Thrym rages: HP 2094; AC 78; Atk Aesir’s Doom +88/+83/+78/+73/+68 (4d6 plus +2d6 (chaotic) plus +3d6 (cold) plus 3d6 (unholy) plus 1 negative level (Fort DC 23) plus +1 (vile) plus +66/19-20/x3 plus 2d6 (Overwhelming Critical) plus +3 (vile) plus 9d6 (cold) plus 9d6 (unholy) plus 3 negative levels (Fort DC 23) and Fort save DC 71 or die) or 2 slams +75 (1d4 plus +2d6 (chaotic) plus +28) or rock +58 (2d6 plus +2d6 (chaotic) plus +32/19-20/x2) or melee touch +75 or ranged touch +56; Grapple +87; resistance (sonic) 29; SR 89; SV Fort +86, Will +73; Strength 67, Constitution 55; Climb +48, Jump +68. Thrym’s rages last for an hour and he may enter rage 14 times a day.

Avatars:

- The typical avatar of Thrym appears as he does, except that Thrym will typically increase his size by one category when he wants to Intimidate wherever he is sending the Avatar...which is practically all of the time.
