Avenger

Written by James Kenny.

 

This class is based on the Avenger conversion prototype by Lawrence Augustine Mingoa, found at http://13persuasions.blogspot.ca/2012/10/avenger-within-shadows-of-santa-cora.html

 

(Version 2.02, 06/10/15)

 

NOTE: The 2.00+ update has rather changed a core chunk of the class. If you are currently playing this class, or have played this class, I would love your feedback on these changes.

Summary

  • Denounce has been turned back into a prayer.
  • You now have druid-like flexible attacks, except they make your double roll + choose more...choicefull.
  • Spells are spells, the new Avenger's flexible attacks became Prayers. They now have their own seperate progression. This generally nets you more abilities in the long run.
  • Vow of Fortitude became Armor of Faith. Vow of Fortitude now makes you simply tougher.
  • Added Atonement, Divine Cage, and Unexpected Arrival talents.
  • Added multi-class supportt.

Overview

Within the shadows of Santa Cora lurks a dark secret: a cult of loyal fanatics who are inspired by faith and blessed by the gods of light to carry out duties of a less-than-holy nature. They seek out and stamp out evil in the name of righteousness, but who else can truly say what is righteous when conversion can be found at the tip of a blade?

Play style: While the Bard combines martial flexible attacks with arcane spells, the Avenger features a mix of flexible attacks and the divine power of the cleric. The Avenger features a small collection of support and healing abilities, though its role as a damage dealer is clear. If you like being extremely accurate, this class is for you.

Ability Scores: Avenger’s rely on swiftness to lay low their foes, and wisdom to temper their rage just enough to channel the wrath of the gods. You can add +2 to your Wisdom or your Dexterity, so long as you have not added to that score with your racial bonus.

Backgrounds: The Avenger’s monastic origin is clear in their lack of armor, trusting in the power of their faith to protect them. Other skills usually involve the hunting of their prey, much like assassins but with a divine bent to them, which makes them all the more dangerous. Many Avengers come from troubled background, either wronged by an evil-doer, or having been the hand of evil themselves.

Icons: The two main groups of Avengers serve the Crusader and the Priestess, who wage a secret war against each other as well as their true enemies. The Priestess is however conflicted about her Avengers due to their methods. Many Avengers have also found just cause amongst the Emperor, the Elf Queen, the Dwarf King, and even the Three.

 

Gear

While different cults of Avengers all have different regulations, they are all very strict in what they consider proper dress. Some cults wear elaborate robes clearly identifying them as a servant of their deity, while others promote humbleness and demand only a simple brown, black, or white robe. Avengers with the Vow of Chastity seem to have a conflict between wearing the heaviest clothes possible, and surprisingly wearing scandalously little.

 

Avengers tend towards heavy swords, though many also favour the largest version of their god’s favored weapon type. These weapons are often shaped to resemble the holy symbols of their deities.

 

You can choose to start with either 25 gp, or if you trust in the luck of the gods, 1d6 x 10 gp.

Armor

As mentioned earlier, Avengers shun all forms of armor, save for regular robes for decency's sake, as they rely on "a higher power" for protection. When forced to wear armor, their AC drops along with their accuracy:

Weapons

Avengers start with a couple of weapons - usually the bigger, the better, although having a concealable or ranged weapon doesn't hurt - and standard non-magical gear suggested by the character's specific background.

Those who take the Arrow of the Gods talent will obviously want a bow to fire their godly arrows with.

Avenger Features

All avengers have the following class features.
 

Implements of Divine Wrath

Like the cleric of paladin, the avenger can use holy symbols and staffs to channel their divine magics. However, the divine wrath of the avenger can also be cast through the weapons they wield.

 

Oath of Enmity

While in battle, you can use a quick action to swear an oath against an enemy you can see. Until either of you are unconscious or dead (or until the battle is over, whichever comes first), you cannot use this talent on any other enemy, and whenever you make a melee attack against your chosen enemy while you're not engaged to anyone else but that enemy, you roll 2d20 and choose which of the two rolls you'll be using for your attack roll.

Adventurer Feat: Once per battle as an interrupt, you can have an ally benefit from Oath of Enmity for his next attack against the target of your Oath of Enmity.

Champion Feat: When your Oath of Enmity is reduced to 0HP, you can rally as a free action (or as an interrupt if it was reduced to 0HP outside your turn).

Epic Feat: When both attack rolls are the same, and you hit, it is treated as a critical hit.

 

Vows

Some Avenger talents have Vows. These are optional flavour rules to live by. The punishment for breaking them is up to the DM, and should be based on the level of severity. The primary penalty should be losing access to the talent for a period of time, -1 penalty to something, or letting one’s magic item get control of the user. Penalties shouldn’t last more than 4 battles.

Avenger Talents

Choose three of the following class talents.

 

Atonement

Death is no escape from you, even fallen enemies must atone for their crimes. When you kill the target of your Oath of Emnity, you capture its soul and can keep three such souls until your next full heal-up. You gain the following power that costs one of your captured souls. This spell is not effected by other avenger talents, feats, and spells that effect spells.

Atonement

Close-quarters spell * Quick action to cast * At-will

Targets: One nearby enemy

Attack: Wisdom + Level vs. PD

Hit: A number of d4’s equal to your level + Wisdom modifier holy damage.

Miss: Holy damage equal to your level

Adventurer Feat: You miss with an attack against AC, you can expend a captured soul to instead target MD.

Champion Feat: When you are hit by an attack, you cast Atonement as an interrupt. If you hit, you also reduce the damage you would take by the damage Atonement dealt.

Epic Feat: Atonement uses d6's instead of d4's.

 

Armor of Faith

Once per battle, when an enemy hits you with an attack, you can force it to roll a 2nd time and take the lower result.

Adventurer Feat: If the attack still hits you, you gain temporary hit points equal to your Wisdom modifier. The temporary hit points double at level 5, and triple at level 8.

Champion Feat: Once per day, if the target misses you, the triggering enemy takes half the damage the attack would have dealt.

Epic Feat: The Champion Feat benefit now deals full damage.

 

Arrow of the Gods

Your attacks with d8 ranged weapons (heavy crossbow, longbow) now deal d10 damage per level. Your attacks with d6 ranged weapons (light crossbow, shortbow) now deal d8 damage per level. In addition, your misses with basic ranged attacks deal damage equal to your level. In addition, Avenger talents, features, feats, and prayers that specify melee attacks also apply to ranged attacks. Oath of Enmity on ranged attacks requires the target not to be next to or engaged with any creatures to apply its double roll.

Adventurer Feat: Your allies do not prevent you from rolling twice against your Oath of Enmity target.

Champion Feat: You do not suffer penalties for long range, and ignore any penalties or bonuses from effects relating to ‘cover’ against your Oath of Enmity target.

Epic Feat: Once per battle, you can get the oath of enmity benefit regardless of its requirements.

 

Avenger's Censure

Choose one of the following censures:

Censure of Pursuit: Whenever the enemy you've sworn an oath against disengages from you, you gain a bonus to your next damage roll against that enemy equal to your Wisdom modifier. Double this damage at level 8.

Adventurer Feat:You can add the current Escalation die to the bonus granted by this censure.

Double the Escalation die damage by level 5, and triple the Escalation die damage by level 8.

Censure of Retribution: Whenever an enemy other than the one you've sworn an oath against attacks you, you gain a bonus to your next damage roll against the enemy you've sworn an oath against equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Adventurer Feat: For each additional enemy beyond the first that attacks you (other than the enemy that you've sworn an oath against), increase the bonus granted by this censure by your Wisdom modifier.

Censure of Unity: You gain a bonus to your damage rolls against the enemy you've sworn an oath against equal to the number of allies that are engaging it. Double this bonus at level 5, and triple this bonus by level 8.

Adventurer Feat: When you are engaged with the enemy you’ve sworn an oath of enmity against, your allies that are also engaged with it gain a bonus to damage rolls equal to the number of their allies engaging it.

Champion Feat: Double the bonus your allies receive.

Epic Feat:Triple the bonus your allies receive.

 

Divine Cage

When your oath of emnity target makes an attack that does not include you as a target, it takes holy damage equal to your Wisdom modifier. Increase to twice your Wisdom modifier at level 5, and three times at level 8.

Adventurer Feat: Enemies take a penalty to disengage from you equal to your Wisdom modifier. You can choose to suppress this feat.

Champion Feat: You can use Prayers on opportunity attacks.

 

Eternal Pursuit

Once per battle, you can spend a free action to automatically succeed in disengage checks and ignore attempts to intercept until the end of your turn, but you must end that movement closer to your Oath of Enmity, if possible. You can even move to enemies far away with a single movement.

Adventurer Feat: While this talent is in effect, you gain a bonus to attack rolls against your Oath of Enmity equal to the number of enemies you disengage with, or could otherwise intercept you.

Champion Feat: Once per day, you can use this talent an additional time.

Epic Feat: If you hit your Oath of Enmity while the this talent is in effect, it is also Stuck until the end of your next turn.

 

Sword and Spell

When you use a melee weapon attack, you gain a +1 bonus to your next spell’s attack roll (ignore spells that don’t have one). When you use a spell attack, you gain a +1 bonus to your next melee weapon attack roll.

Adventurer Feat: Your attack spells become Close.

Champion Feat: Increase the bonus to +2.

Epic Feat: In addition to the attack bonus, it also increases the critical chance of the attack type by 1.

 

Unexpected Arrival

Once per day, when a battle starts that you aren't surprised in, you can declare you are ambushing or surprising the enemy (13th Age, p164). You can use this to ambush alone, or join a pair of allies who already are. Nobody expects you!

Adventurer Feat: You gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls while ambushing.

Champion Feat: This ability becomes recharge 16+ after battle.

Epic Feat: You can bring the highest initiative ally with you as if this were a normal ambush, provided someone rolls a natural 11+ for initiative.

 

Vow of Chastity

You can roll saves at the start of your turn instead of at the end of your turn. A successful save against ongoing damage, for example, means that you will not take the ongoing damage that turn.

Vow: You must not engage in romantic or sexual activities.

Adventurer Feat: When you hit with an attack, you can make an save against one effect that a save can end.

Champion Feat: When you beat a saving throw by more than 5, you can bestow the base benefit of this talent to an ally who hasn’t violated the vow since the last full heal-up.

Epic Feat: Gain a +1 bonus to MD and PD.

 

Vow of Focused Sight

You gain a 5 point background that involves finding people and reading people (such as inquisitor, investigator, interrogator) and you can even us it sense if the target has been near unholy (or if evil, holy) magic or rituals within the past 24 hours. You ignore any invisibility your Oath of Enmity has. In addition, should your Oath of Enmity target survive the battle, you are aware of the target’s direction for up to 24 hours, even if you use Oath of Enmity on another creature.

Vow: This vow is slightly different in that you are technically blind. This does not impair your combat capabilities at all, though you and your DM should be aware you are blind when taking part in sight related activities other than those related to this talent’s background. The upside is you should probably be immune to effects that blind you as well.

Adventurer Feat: Oath of Enmity is now a free action. You can now know their direction for 48 hours.

Champion Feat:You ignore Daze, Fear, and Weakened penalties when attacking your Oath of Enmity. You can now know their direction for a week.

 

Vow of Fortitude

Your base HP increases from 7 to 8, and you recovery dice now use d10's.

Vow: You must live on minimal food and water, even when better is offered you.

 

Vow of Peace

You can spend a standard action to give all nearby allies a +1 bonus to attack rolls, defences, and increase their crit range by 1 until the start of your next turn. If you attack or otherwise take a hostile action you cannot use this ability for the rest of the battle.

Vow: You cannot attack unless provoked (enemies rolling attacks against you or your allies counts as provoking). This may seem a bit of an oddball vow for an Avenger, however this vow ties more into the class’ name. Avengers with the Vow of Peace give their foes a chance to realize their error, before swiftly executing them.

Adventurer Feat: Your first attack roll after having used this talent in a battle, if the target attacked you or ally, deals 1d6 extra damage per level to it on a hit.

Champion Feat: When you use this talent, until you attack, you cannot be critically hit.

Epic Feat: If you use this talent’s ability and go a battle without making an attack roll, you and all nearby allies can heal using a free recovery.

 

Vow of Piety

Choose one of the domains listed in the cleric’s class talent list. You gain all the domain’s advantages, including the ability to use the domain’s invocation once per day.

If the domain you choose is designed to help cleric spells and attacks, reinterpret the talent to help your avenger powers. You can use the domain’s feats if you wish; reinterpret them similarly if necessary.

Vow: You will respect all temples. Those of gods directly opposed to yours are more of a grey area.

Prayers

 A Flexible Prayer is much like the Warrior Druid’s Flexible attacks. They are sudden prayers and oaths that bring forth divine power. They only apply to weapon attacks, ranged or melee, though there are a few exceptions. A Secondary Roll is the roll you did not choose to use when you rolled twice from Oath of Emnity.

 

Battle Meditation

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Natural odd roll

Effect: You regain the use of all once-per-battle prayers and spells. If your secondary roll is a miss, you can pop free of the target and change the target of your Oath of Enmity. If it is a hit, you gain temporary hit points equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Level 5: Double wisdom modifier.

Level 8: Triple wisdom modifier.

Adventurer Feat: You can apply this prayer to any single-target spell, not just weapon attacks. If used on a once-per-battle spell you do not regain that spell.

 

Contempt

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any hit that is lower than your secondary roll.

Effect: You deal extra damage equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Level 5: Double wisdom modifier.

Level 8: Triple wisdom modifier.

 

Fortitude

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any odd hit.

Effect: You gain temporary hit points equal to your Wisdom modifier plus your level. If the secondary roll is even, you can remove one save ends effect from yourself.

Level 5: Double wisdom modifier.

Level 8: Triple wisdom modifier.

 

Pursuit

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any Hit

Effect: If the target doesn’t end its next turn engaged to you, at the start of your next turn you can engage him as a free action if he's nearby (orget near him if he's far away). You must roll your disengagement checks as normal unless the secondary roll is even.

 

Rebuke

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Natural 1-5

Effect: You pop all engaged enemies free of you. You can choose to exempt your Oath of Emnity target from this effect.

 

Retribution

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any miss

Effect: If any enemy other than the target hits you before the start of your next turn, the target automatically take damage equal to your wisdom modifier. If the secondary roll is even, the attacker also takes this damage.

Level 5: Double wisdom modifier.

Level 8: Triple wisdom modifier.

 

Storm

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any even hit

Effect: Deal an additional number of d4’s equal to your level in lightning damage. If the secondary roll is also even, the first time an ally hits the target before the start of your next turn, it takes this extra damage again as thunder damage.

 

Swiftness

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Natural 18+

Effect: During your next turn, you can cast a single Avenger at-will attack prayer as a quick action. If the secondary roll is also 18+ you can instead cast one immediately as a free action. It becomes a close-quarters prayer for the attack.

 

Truth

Flexible once-per-battle attack

Triggering Roll: Any hit when the secondary roll is also a hit.

Effect: You deal one weapon die of extra holy damage.

Level 5: Two weapon die.

Level 8: Four weapon die.

Champion Feat: The extra damage now also effects one other nearby enemy.

Epic Feat: The extra damage now also effects one other nearby enemy (for a total of two other nearby enemies).

Spells

Unlike normal spells that have fixed progression based on their spell slot, Avenger spells automatically scale with the level of the user. Thus where a spell will say “Xd8 + wisdom modifier” it means the roll a number of d8’s equal to your level. An Avenger’s faith is as much a weapon as his sword.

 

When a spell's target says “Oath of Enmity” it means you can target your Oath of Enmity regardless of distance at no penalty. However the target must be in line of sight.

 

Spells require a standard action to cast unless they say otherwise.

    What are the key modifiers for a multi-classed Avenger? Other than that it's pretty good.

  • Thank you. I'd have to check the multi-class rules again, but I imagine they'd be Dex and Wis.

    A key modifier is the lower of two important ability modifiers (one ability is taken from each class), when a class feature or power refers to either of those abilities the key modifier is used in place of the normal one. Background checks and the like still use the normal mods. Based on the assumption Wisdom is more important to the class than Dexterity I would guess the modifiers go like this:

      Barbarian/Avenger: Str/Wis Bard/Avenger: Wis/Cha Chaos-mage/Avenger: Wis/Cha Cleric/Avenger: Dex/Wis Commander/Avenger: Wis/Cha Druid/Avenger: Dex/Wis Fighter/Avenger: Str/Wis Monk/Avenger: Dex/Wis Necromancer/Avenger: Int/Wis Occultist/Avenger: Int/Wis Paladin/Avenger: Str/Wis Ranger/Avenger: Dex/Wis Rogue/Avenger: Dex/Wis Sorcerer/Avenger: Wis/Cha Wizard/Avenger: Int/Wis
