Hey all. I had a couple ideas for archetypes for the Warder and Warlord classes, so I figured that this would be the best place to present them. The first, the accurser, is a warder that focuses on debuffing and curse effects. The second, the campeador, is a warlord archetype engineered for performance combat (or just showing off, your choice). Tell me what you guys think.

The campeador I like, though I'm not sure about the immunity to mind affecting, which seems a bit out of place. I've never had a chance to actually use performance combat, but it reads like the archetype integrates well. The accurser could use a better name and unfortunately overlaps significantly with the fiendbound marauder. Turning the fiendbound marauder's aegis into a debuff would actually be cool, maybe you should suggest it in the playtest thread.

Where might I find said playtest thread?

I think that the mind-affecting immunity works because it means that the guy is effectively unfazed by anyone trying to control him except for the people who are cheering him on.

Here's the playtest thread. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?406639-Dreamscarred-Press-Path-of-War-Expanded!-(Discussion-Thread-III)) The third one, in fact.

All in all, I agree with Stack. Accuser overlaps too much with Fiendbound, and Campeador, while interesting, just leaves me feeling meh.
