Half human, half magic

Hybrid Elite Warrior

Hybrid Elites are half mortal, half green magic. At some point in their lives, Hybrid Elites were infused with strong amounts of arcane energy. This painful infusion of potent magic can show physically in many ways such as scars or abnormal features (such as brilliant green eyes). The powerful energies that now course through a Hybrid Elite's body grants them unnatural feats of strength. Hybrids can move quickly in the heaviest of armor and perform long acrobatic leaps. They favor using large two-handed weapons to maximize their crushing power. Their physical frames also hide a great deal of their prowess and they often look no different from any other athletic member of their native race.

No two Hybrids are alike and each possesses a different set of talents and skills. Even so, they can almost always be found serving in military duties around the world. They enjoy serving and protecting, always giving merit to becoming a hero. Of course, there are always a few black sheep. They are the exception, not the rule. Good or bad, law or chaos, they fight for their dreams and for their honor.

Making a Hybrid Elite Warrior

Developed to make potent use of all things Strength-related, a Hybrid becomes exponentially more powerful as they progress in level. When working with a party, it is important to remember that Hybrids do not possess the many feats and options of a fighter; they don't shield others well, command ground, use trip attacks, or do karate. They hit. They hit hard. And they kill monsters. That's it. This simplified approach, however, can make them a good option for first time players.

Hybrids have only one primary ability and can select six of their class skills. This being the case, it is always recommended to have a higher Constitution score than your subsequent Intelligence score. Hybrids are warriors first and craftsman last.

Hybrid Elites in the World

The Hybrids are not born fighters. However, when they attain their unnatural strength and speed they make excellent swordsmen. Nearly every known Hybrid got their start through the military lifestyle.

Daily Life: Soldiering.

Notables: There are very few known hybrid elites among all the races.

Organizations: Fighters Guild, local army or militia member.

NPC Reactions: Commonly respected as gifted fighters or an elite soldier.

Hybrid Elite Lore

Characters with ranks in Knowledge (local) can research the Hybrid to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.

Knowledge (local)
DC Result
5 They are very gifted fighters and do not follow a specific cause.
10 They can perform feats of great strength beyond any known swordsman.
15 They have infused strong amounts of arcane magic into their bodies, giving them unique traits.
20 Many male Hybrids have a fetish for spiky hair and over-sized swords.

Hybrid Elite Warriors in the Game

Hybrids are soldiers and mercenaries of diverse races and backgrounds. They can be found all over the world in very small numbers. Always noticeable with a large weapon hung from their back and slight physical abnormalities. The Hybrid is able to crush the strongest foe with their god-like strength. Players of this class will have a great time smashing heads.

Adaptation: In some instances, Hybrid Elite Warriors may be the sole defenders of a trade city, as they are often found near an oceanic area. In other instances it may be that only Orcs could ever become Hybrid Elite Warriors. Hybrids can be molded to fit into any campaign setting.
