The Avenger

By Marcus Pan

The AvengerWhile the Paladins strive to forward good and vanquish evil, who is there to stand up to them? To open this possibility further, we present a new character class, the Avenger.

An Avenger character is a fighter sub-class, but must be human and must begin with Chaotic-Evil alignment and maintain this alignment throughout their career. Losing this alignment causes them to lose all special powers and become nothing more than a fighter. Avengership can never be regained. If an Avenger has both strength and wisdom in excess of 15, they gain a 10% bonus to all awarded experience points.

Avengership benefits and special abilities:

1. Detect good in a 60' radius when concentrating.
2. All saving throws at plus 2.
3. Immune to all diseases.
4. Lay on Hands can cure 2HP/level of the Avenger 1/day.
5. For every five levels attained, an Avenger can cure any disease in any body 1/week.
6. Protection from good in a 1' radius.
7. An Avenger can turn undead at two levels below the actual level of the character, AND may control them as well like an evil cleric.
8. Beginning at 4th level, an Avenger can call for his warhourse. It is an intelligent heavy warhorse (HD: 5+5 / AC: 5 / MOVE: 18''). Only one such horse is available every ten years.
9. Avengers gain clerical spell ability beginning at 9th level.
