From D&D Wiki
 Can someone rate this?
Or just give me constructive criticism... --Lord Dhazriel 10:55, 30 June 2008 (MDT)
Power - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because most abilities need much balancing. Overpower Death is, as the name suggests, ridiculously overpowered. At -10 you're dead, plain simple. No matter how devoted a kinght is, after his head is chopped off, one of his main arteries severed, or his body shredded to pieces, he can't keep going, period. Untill -10, it's basically the same as the Diehard feat, so you could have just given him that feat for free instead. Also, the Auras need some serious re-wording: according to what is written at this point, the Imperial Knight's Aura of Bravery inspires everyone within 30ft, including enemies and indifferent by-standers. Also, the Aura of Fear seems to frighten everyone around the Knight, including his allies. Plus, it is unclear whether theese Auras are always active, or if the Knight may activate or suppress them at will (in which case, it isn't said whether doing so is a standard, full-round, free, immediate, etc. action.). Fearsome Blows and Cover make sense and are not over- or underpowered, but I would suggest renaming them, since Cover does not grant cover, but rather the Knight takes the hit for an ally; and Fearsome Blows do not have anything to do with fear, but rather the fighting ability of the Knight (also: the bonus to AC would imply that his all-around combat capability improves, so something in the line of "Improved Battle Capabilities" etc. might make more sense). --188.8.131.52 03:35, 29 March 2011 (MDT)
Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because the grammar is very bad, almost every sentence includes one or more mistakes. However, it is generally possible to discern what was meant, or at least make an educated speculation of the intended meaning. --184.108.40.206 03:35, 29 March 2011 (MDT)
Formatting - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because it is really well formatted, cross-referenced, and as far as visual likeness goes; almost perfect. However, it could use a picture or two, and as mentioned above, needs some serious spelling and grammar correction. --220.127.116.11 03:35, 29 March 2011 (MDT)
Flavor - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because the idea behind the class makes sense, but as the creator mentioned himself, is generally a bad rip-off of a Paladin. You could have just said that, in your campaign, the Paladins of the Empire are known as Imperial Knights, and be done with it. Because quite frankly, that's what an Imperial Knight is: a Paladin with no spells, made for Fighters who really want a prestige class and some non-fighter bonuses (like the Paladin warhorse, Charisma bonus to saves and fear immunity), but basically want to stay Fighters as far as game mechanics go. --18.104.22.168 03:35, 29 March 2011 (MDT)
