Warrior

From MythCraft Online SRD
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Your path to becoming the warrior you are today was one of absolute discipline. At a young age, you were a gifted athlete, playing in children’s sports or getting into trouble pushing back against authority. As you grew, your restlessness matured into a desire to protect those that are weaker than you. Guided by great blademasters, you learned your way around sword and spear, shield and bow. A versatile fighter, you are almost equally capable with any weapon and any suit of armor, making you an invaluable soldier. You also have a keen mind for battle tactics and act with disciplined measure as you direct your foes away from your weaker allies.

What motivates you when you don your armor? What thoughts stick with you as you draw your weapons and slog into the battlefield? How do your driving goals inform your fighting style? If you are motivated by vengeance, you might be an especially merciless fighter, whereas if you desire to protect your loved ones, you might stay your blade when you have the opportunity to do an enemy in, letting compassion guide your hand as much as justice. Maybe you have no scruples at all and will simply do what is asked of you as long as the coins keep coming.

Showdown Blind Fighting III The rank and file is beneath you, and you crave a test of your skills as a soldier. Once per week, you can specify a target of your Battlefield Tactician as the Challenged. If they accept this, they focus their attacks on you as if they have been commanded to do so under the effects of Enthralled.

Indomitable Champion Arete You are a soldier of great renown. Tales of your conquests on the battlefield have been spread far and wide. Kings might compete to earn your allegiance and great merchants would pay small fortunes to acquire your services.

It is nearly impossible for you to be slain in battle. If you reach your Death Point max, but at least your head and torso remain intact, you may make a choice: to continue fighting or submit to your injuries

If you submit, you become unconscious instead of dead, and must retire from your adventuring lifestyle upon being healed. You may no longer participate in combat unless attacked, and must make an effort to avoid it. This can be roleplayed as a mix of physical and/or mental wounds, or simply a personal choice. Generally, this means rolling a new character and handing over narrative control to your MC.

If you continue to fight, you cannot die so long as the battle you are participating in persists. An hour after combat, or 1 minute after you are the last man standing of your allies, you die. This cannot be mitigated by healing, as the wounds you receive pushing past this limit go beyond the scope of healing magic.

  • Level 30: If you reach level 30 without using your Indomitable Champion feature, you gain +2 STR and the final cap for your STR increases from 12 to 14.
