All of the following are class features of the defender of destiny prestige class.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A defender of destiny gains no new weapon, armor or shield proficiencies.
Free from Karma (Ex): A defender of destiny never goes astray from the path of destiny, she may not cast spells with the Good or Evil descriptors, unless they are Abjuration spells.
Safe Destiny (Su): At 1st level, a defender of destiny gains a +1 insight bonus on armor class. This bonus increases to +2 at 4th level, to +3 at 7th level and finally to +4 at 10th level.
Divine Grace (Su): At 2nd level, a defender of destiny gains a bonus equal to her Charisma bonus (if any) on all saving throws.
Uncanny Dodge (Ex): At 3rd level the defender of destiny gains the uncanny dodge ability (see the Player’s Handbook).
Smite Karma (Su): Once per day, a defender of destiny of at least 5th may attempt a smite karma. This ability is identical to the smite evil ability of the paladin (see the Player’s Handbook), except it can be used to smite good creatures as well (creatures that are neither good nor evil are not affected).
Divine Health (Ex): At 6th level, a defender of destiny gains immunity to all diseases, including supernatural and magical diseases (such as mummy rot and lycanthropy).
Fate Roll (Su): A defender of destiny of 8th level or higher may reroll any one die; she always keeps the best result. This ability is usable once per day.
