[House Rules-Classes]Soul Knight (Redux)

After some consideration, I’ve decided to modify my Soul Knight Class.  Rather than manifest a (very) damaging spell, I think I’d rather take a page from later editions and let them create a weapon that steadily get’s stronger as they level up.  I don’t think it will break anything (not when compared to multiple attacks from Claws and Bite), so I’m ok with it.

[House Rules-Classes]Soul Knight

The following is a class built around the concept of a spell that creates a mystical blade of power for the character to wield in combat.  It was…unintentional that they sort of ended up a bit more ‘Jedi’ then I originally intended, but…I still think they are pretty cool.  They are very ‘paladin’ in feel, though without the heavy armor (though from level 2 they are still tanks!).

[House Rules-Classes]Dwarven Paladin

Dwarves in my campaign are very religious typically, and are almost universally Lawful (though there is, in the future, an entire clan that turns to Chaos, in the Sundered Empires era, few dwarves are neutral and even fewer are Chaotic.  Below describes a typical Dwarven paladin, serving Law.

[House Rules-Classes]Paladin

As my campaign world plays up religion quite heavily, paladins and clerics have always been an important part of the game world.  Luckily, ACKS has a player’s guide coming out with many more classes in it, of which the Paladin is but one.  More importantly, to me at least, is there is a system for creating new classes and having them be balanced with existing classes.  The main rulebook already does this (adding Bard, Explorer, Assassin, and Bladedancer as well as Elven Nightblade and Dwarven Craftpriest to the B/X canon).

The paladin in the player’s guide is perfectly good but it’s missing something important to me, spells.  So, using the guidelines, I created another paladin.  I hope you enjoy it.  Note, some text is taken from the paladin description in the player’s guide.
