    Default Templar Class (PEACH)

    Templar



    May they be trained in a specialized order or simply a hatred towards spellcasters, a Templar has perfected the art in the hunting and killing of spellcasters through mundane and non-magical means. They may find themselves a bit lacking against non-magical foes, but they are still plenty capable of delivering a punch. And once you are against a spellcaster you'll want no one else.

    Role: A Templar can make a solid front line or ranged combatant in most combat situations. But if there is an enemy spellcaster a Templar should almost always be engaging them.

    Starting Wealth: 5d6x10 gp (average 175 gp). In addition, each character begins play with an outfit worth 10gp or less.

    Oh hello! :)

    Please note if you are replying to one of my d&d 3.5 topics asking about a character build, I just feel the need to inform you that there's a 95% chance I won't be using the character. I jump ideas, inspirations and motivations far too often and rarely end up sticking with a concept into play sadly.

    But I enjoy being able to learn more on D&D and builds through the topics and giving the mind exercises for those who want it.
