Surtr Posted November 15, 2005 Share Posted November 15, 2005 I've read about the Divinate, Medician and Militarist in the AD&D source The Complete Paladin's Handbook. Though I had a fairly hard time to figure out their possible advantages/disadvantages in BGII, I like the end results! DIVINATE Devoutly religious, Divinates serve as the military branch of their church and consider themselves soldiers of their gods. Their religious discipline imbues them with a clear sense of purpose; promoting the principles of their faith is not only morally correct, but a sacred duty. Advantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ In addition to the standard spheres a paladin can use, Divinates have minor access of the spheres of Charm, Guardian, and Sun Disadvantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ None MEDICIAN The Medician seeks to thread the sick, alleviate suffering, and save lives. Much of her training has been devoted to medical arts, and she follows a religion whose deities promote healing and compassion. Though as much an enemy of evil as any paladin, the Medician has decided that she can best uphold her principles by fighting injury and disease. Advantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Immune to disease Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ May cast Cure Disease once per day per 4 levels, as third level cleric spell of the same name Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ May cast Lay on Hands once per day per 4 levels, as the standard paladin ability Disadvantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ -1 to hit and -1 damage with all weapons a paladin can use MILITARIST The Militarist is a battlefield virtuoso. War is a sacred act, he believes, and a chance for spiritual redemption. By defeating enemies in combat, he pays tribute to his gods and secures his place in the afterlife. Advantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Can place three proficiency stars in any melee weapon a paladin can use Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Immune to backstab Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ +2 to hit and +2 damage with all melee weapons a paladin can use Disadvantages: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ May not cast priest spells Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ May not turn undead Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ May not use missile weapons And a little idea for the Totemic Druid kit at the end: Since theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re able to summon spirits, wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it make sense to give them minor/major access to the Summoning sphere? Just though that spells such as Summon Animal Spirit and Conjure Animals could fit them. Link to comment
