The Overlord[edit]

89575.jpg

Overlord on his Nightmare Steed

There was a time, when fiends begat mortal children. A time when questing lords of darkness harnessed the power of the abyss to fuel their might, and wrote the ancient tomes that are lost in crypts, volcanoes and the depths of the ocean. A time when evil gods walked the earth to smite those who opposed them. The overlords are the chosen ones, destined to bring a new dawn to such an age and complete the eternal cycle. In them, they carry the seed of this ancient power of chaos and evil. They may embrace this fate, they may deny it, they may renounce it, they may fight it in their hybris.The ancient might that is in their veins makes them fearsome warriors, destined to lead an army on one of the many sides in the eternal struggles that turn the wheel of time.

Adventures: Overlords do not "adventure". They seek power and they conquer.Sometimes, they grasp that their is a higher goal behind it all. That the power they seek will serve a purpose. Sometimes, they will understand they went to far, and seek atonement.The classic overlord is the anti-hero, both in the sense of tragic protagonist and villain.

Characteristics: Overlords are melee powerhouses. They draw their magic might from the same sources as the warlock. But contrary to them, they do not blast the enemy, they face him steel against steel. They can inscribe signets in their weapons, shields and armor to enhance them with magic might.

Alignment: Overlords must be either Chaotic Evil or Neutral Evil.

Religion: Overlords follow the gods that humanity chose to forget, ancient, alien powers that demand rituals no sane mind would want to endure. Redeemed overlords tend to go for the opposite and worship lawful good gods like Heironeous.

Background: It might be the curse of their blood, but overlords never seem to come from ordinary mundane backgrounds. They are the rejected orphans raised by witches, the kids abducted by demon cults, the bored sons of ancient and corrupt patrician families and the evil twin brothers of the prince...

Races: Overlords come from any race. In fact, races that already share a trace of demonic blood, such as tieflings, are the most common.They are the dangerous masterminds that are able to turn unplanned raids into an invasion. And in areas where the majority of the population is human, of course most overlords will also be human.

Other classes: Overlords have a deep respect for authority backed by power, and expect the same in others.While their habit of seeing anyone else as either a threat, a tool or a minion may be unsettling, they are way to smart to reject anyone just by appearance. They have suffered this fate themselves often enough to know the error of this way.

Role: Overlords stand in the front line. If they are powerful enough, they can afford a line of minions before them, but there is no question they will be where everybody can see them to follow their command.

Character Themes[edit]

Conqueror[edit]

The Conqueror is on an eternal quest for power. He sees everybody who is more powerful as a potential obstacle, and anybody who is weaker as a potential minion. Their ultimate goal is to raise an army and to gain a domain where they can rule, a base from where they can finally conquer the whole known world.

Redeemed[edit]

Redeemed overlords are those who understood that there are means fighting for beyond the quest for ultimate power. In fact, playing a redeemed overlord might be the only one to include such a character in a usual good-aligned group. Redeemed overlords themselves are chaotic good or chaotic neutral. They still have their powers, but they may choose not to use certain invocations, such as those that summon undead. They will still have a hard time cooperating with characters like Paladins, but then, this is a great opportunity for roleplaying.

Megalomaniac[edit]

“It's impossible, I tell you, impossible! My trap was perfect! HOW DID HE DO IT? I have to know! Somebody tell me, it's not fair! There was no way, I tell you! No way he could have gotten out! Somebody tell me! Do you hear me! SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW HE DID IT! I have to know! I HAVE TO KNO-O-O-O-OW!”

Where the Conqueror is a strategist and warlord, the megalomaniac is a scheming madman. He is the kind that builds an evil lair full of minions, and construct a doomsday device to extort power. He devises death traps for his enemies, and kidnaps princesses and princes to lure heroes in his lair. When undisturbed, he trains his menacing laughter in front of a mirror.

Coward[edit]

“You loved my father, I know. But so did I. That makes us brothers, doesn't it? Smile for me now, brother.” [stabs him]

The coward uses his black armor and menacing demeanor to shield his inner weaknesses. His invocations provide the means to trick his enemies in combat to gain an unfair advantage. Inside, he is a broken and frightened soul, but he will never show it to anyone.

The Henchman[edit]

“And now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden rebel base...”

The henchman is the loyal servant and army leader of an even darker power on or behind the throne. He wields considerable power, and he is feared by everyone, but deep inside he knows that he, too, is a pawn on the chess board.

The Slayer[edit]

“Maim! Kill! Burn!!! Maim! Kill! Burn!!!”

All the slayer loves and enjoys is a good blood bath. He is a combat machine. He doesn't care who he is fighting for, he doesn't care what he is fighting for, as long as there is a fight.

The Dark Gladiator[edit]

“Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?”

Face it, you're a showman. You fight to please the masses. You're supernatural, you're creepy, you're efficient. The crowds love you. Sure, you're the evil, and you're there to make somebody else shine, but you know, they are afraid of you. And that's why the arena needs you. If they only knew that you are for real...

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Overlord.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency[edit]

Overlords are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, all armors and all shields.

Signet[edit]

The overlord can inscribe glowing signets in his melee weapons, shields and armors to mark them as his possessions, and to give them enchanted powers while he is using them.

Inscribing a signet takes 10 minutes per item. A signet remains active for 24 hours. The signet power is active only when the warlord wears or wields the item (unless otherwise stated). Items with a channeled invocation are treated as magic items.

He can use a signet either to fill an item with energy or to channel one invocation into it. The effect of channeling an invocation differs from invocation to invocation, see the list below (next posting). He can still cast a channeled invocation normally.

One item can only hold one invocation or one type of energy. Also, he can channel a specific invocation only in one item, so he can only use either the weapon or shield or armor effect of that invocation. At first level, he does not know any invocation yet, but he can channel energy into his items (see favored element).

Favored energy type[edit]

The overlord selects one type of energy. He can channel this type of energy into weapons, shields and armor. Weapons deal bonus damage of the selected type, shields and armor grant energy resistance. The bonus damage of the weapon depends on the highest type of Invocation he can channel:

highest
invocation
bonus
damage
energy
resistance
None 1d4 2
Least 1d6 5
Lesser 1d8 10
Greater 2d6 15
Dark 2d8 20

He can channel one type of energy in several items, but the energy resistance does not stack.

Detect Magic[edit]

Beginning at 2nd level, an Overlord can use Detect Magic as the spell at will. His caster level equals his class level

Invocations[edit]

The overlord can learn and use evocations just like a warlock (see CA 7, 130). He can learn all evocations from the Warlock list, except for eldritch essences, as he does not possess the eldritch blast. Contrary to the Warlock, the Overlord is not hindered by armor or shields when using his invocations.

Damage Reduction[edit]

Fortified by his ancestral powers, the overlord gains damage reduction. The DR is overcome by good weapons if he is of evil alignment, by lawful weapons if he is of chaotic alignment, and by both types if he is both.

Second energy type[edit]

The Overlord can choose a second type of energy that he can use for his signet.

Mounted Combat[edit]

The overlord gains Mounted Combat as a bonus feat. If he already has that feat, he may select another feat that has Mounted Combat as a prerequisite. He must fulfill all prerequisites of this feat.

Fast Signet[edit]

The Overlord can inscribe signets in only one minute.

Signet bonus[edit]

When he bestows his signet upon a weapon, armor or shield, the item gains an enchantment bonus equal to his signet bonus. If the weapon already has an enchantment bonus, use either the existing bonus or the signet bonus if it is higher. Shields get the enchantment bonus both to AC as well as attack and damage when used for a shield bash.

Fiendish Resilience[edit]

Once per day, as a free action, he can enter a state that lasts for 2 minutes. while in this state he gains fast healing 1

At 13th level the fast healing improves to fast healing 2. at 18th level the fast healing improves to fast healing 5

Double Signet[edit]

You can inscribe 2 signets into one item, either two invocations or one invocation and one energy type. Still, you can use each invocation you know only in one item at the same time.

Nightmare Steed[edit]

You can call a Nightmare as your loyal mount. You can call the mount as a full-round action at will from the fiendish realm where it resides. This ability is the equivalent of a spell of a level equal to one-third the Overlord’s level. The mount immediately appears adjacent to the Overlord and remains until dismissed, or a maximum of 24 hours. The mount is the same creature each time it is summoned, though the Overlord may release a particular mount from service. Each time the mount is called, it appears in full health, regardless of any damage it may have taken previously. The mount also appears wearing or carrying any gear it had when it was last dismissed. Calling a mount is a conjuration (calling) effect. Should the Overlord’s mount die, it immediately disappears, leaving behind any equipment it was carrying. The Overlord may not summon another mount for 24 hours. Code:

Overlord
Level
Bonus
HD
Natural
Armor Adj.
Str Adj. Special
9-10th +0 +0 +0 Empathic link, share invocations, evasion, share saving throws
11th-13th +2 +4 +1 improved evasion
14th-16th +4 +6 +2 Improved speed (+10 ft.)
17th-20th +6 +8 +3 Spell resistance (Overlord level +5)
Signet Change[edit]

When the Overlord is wearing or wielding an item that carries his signet, he can change the element or the invocation channeled into it as a standard action.

Swift Change[edit]

As signet change, but as a swift action.
