Talk:Blind Hero (3.5e Template)
From D&D Wiki
This is not a balanced Template. Here is why:
Blind: The character cannot see. He takes a –2 penalty to Armor Class, loses his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any), moves at half speed, and takes a –4 penalty on Search checks and on most Strength- and Dexterity-based skill checks. All checks and activities that rely on vision (such as reading and Spot checks) automatically fail. All opponents are considered to have total concealment (50% miss chance) to the blinded character. Characters who remain blinded for a long time grow accustomed to these drawbacks and can overcome some of them.
Now apply the Blind Hero Template:
- Lose AC penalty
- Gain Scent Abiliy
- Gain Blind-Fight Feat
