subtledoctor Posted October 13, 2022 Author Share Posted October 13, 2022 (edited) Okay I've made a rough sketch of how I would change paladin Champion kits. Basically they would each get about two special abilities, and the ability to adopt one or more of the three archetypes for more abilities. Some of the special abilities would specifically work with the archetype abilities... e.g. a Stormward of Talos could choose the Defender archetype and do bonus electric damage with the Smite ability, or choose the Zealot archetype and do bonus electric damage when frenzying. Quote Paladin of Tyr: - permanent ProEvil on self - bonus vs. evil when smite defender, inquisitor Knight of the Golden Lion (Torm) - innate ProEvil 10' - weapon mastery...? defender, inquisitor Everwatch Knight (Helm) - true sight - everwatch sword - awareness (+1 AC, +2 view distance) defender, inquisitor Companion of the Noble Heart (Ilmater) - damage resistance - heal allies when frenzy...? defender, zealot Gloryblod of Tempus - allies berserk when frenzy...? zealot only Knight of the Eternal Order (Kelemvor) - Turn bonus - immune to hold & level drain - bonus vs. undead when smite defender, inquisitor Harvester of Myrkul - Turn bonus - immune to hold & level drain - bonus vs. undead when frenzy inquisitor, zealot Knight of the Black Gauntlet (Bane) - innate Horror - on-hit fear when frenzy zealot only Knight of the Red Falcon - weapon mastery - innate Confusion...? defender, inquisitor, zealot Stormward of Talos - elec resistance - elec damage when frenzying - elec damage when smite defender, zealot Disciple of the Flame (Kossuth) - fire resistance - focus access fire - fire shield when frenzy zealot only Child of Blood (Garagos) - +STR when frenzy zealot only Cherub of the Ruby Rose (Sune) - passionate resonance (AoE Charm) defender, inquisitor, zealot Knight of the Mystic Fire - Spell Thrust @1, Pierce Magic @6, 12, 18 - smite casts Breach - frenzy imposes casting failure chance defender, zealot Inquisitor of Azuth - immune to charm - Spell Thrust @1, Pierce Magic @6, 12, 18 inquisitor only Darksong Knight (Eilistraee) - +3 thac0/damage vs. fiends - innate bolt of glory defender, zealot Eye of Gruumsh - innate Slow? - see invisible when frenzy inquisitor, zealot Hammer of Moradin - stoneskin - moradin's hammer defender only Vassal of Corellon - +2 with swords and bows...? - Mord's Sword when frenzy...? zealot only Truesword of Arvoreen - Mazzy strength innate - Mazzy haste innate defender only That's 20 kits, or about 40 if you count the different combinations of kit+archetype. Should be enough? Edited October 13, 2022 by subtledoctor Quote Link to comment
