Then, when you crave to learn more, go find a copy of Secrets of Sarlona and start learning even more about this part of Eberron.

Du'ulora Champion

The du'ulora are the warlords of the quori, and their vessels are among the mightiest soldiers the Inspired can bring to bear. The vital kintams and the most elite units of the Sleeping Sword are usually commanded by du'ulora Inspired. They are also found as the bodyguards of especially important bastion lords.

A du'ulora champion uses ubiquitous vision any time he believes he is in danger. He maintains his psi-like inertial armor (+8 to AC) at all times. If he has time to prepare for combat, he uses animal affinity (8 pp, 12 minute duration, +4 to Strength and Constitution) and force screen (9 pp, 12 minute duration, +6 to AC). By spending 9 pp, he can use expansion to increase his size to Huge for 12 minutes.

This character is designed as a combatant. A du'ulora general should replace Heroic Spirit and Speed of Thought with Leadership (DMG 106) and Inspirational Leadership (Heroes of Battle). A few du'ulora champions also have levels in the legendary leader prestige class.
