Absolver[edit]

We Absolvers are the most deadly fighters in the world using weapons with style and finesse we are the builders of the order empire we protect the weak and smite the corrupted for their sins. Our nation the Nilekhuarn Tribe ruled by the Kil'Naku Order have always a been a wonderous faction to the lands of the world a star shining bright in the sky. We travel the lands to seek for artifacts and to prove our might.

Making a Absolver[edit]

Absolvers remain the Agents of the Nilekhuarn Tribe and are the martial artist class they've always been, but now can bring even more power to bear through their choice of specialization. This focus comes with a limitation on their feat choices: while a base Absolver can choose from a large list of bonus feats, a Absolver's feat list is focused around their chosen specialization.

Abilities: The importance of ability scores depends on your choice of specialization, but in general the physical ability scores (Strenght, Dexterity and Constitution) are the most important to a Absolver. Don't ignore the mental scores, though: a Absolver with low Wisdom especially is begging for a world of hurt.

Races: Many first generation Absolver were humans who left their human nations due to corruption within humans hearts and became a posthuman species called Dunedain after discovering a light based substance called Aether and build a empire called the Nilekhuarn Tribe which is rule by the Kil'Naku Order. During the second generation many non-humans join the Absolvers such as elves, gnomes, halflings, dwarfs, warforgeds and dragonborns.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Absolver.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Absolver is proficient with all simple and martial weapons and with all armor (medium, and light).

Specializations (Ex): At 1st level, a Absolver chooses their primary specialization: the style of combat they are focused on. While a Absolver is perfectly capable of using other methods of disposing of their enemies, the specialization is the field of combat in which the Absolver shines. A Absolver's specialization gives them a feature or features that improve on every odd-numbered Absolver level (1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th, 15th, 17th and 19th).

At 11th level, a Absolver chooses a secondary specialization: another field of combat where they dominate to complement their forte. A Absolver's secondary specialization never becomes as powerful as their primary specialization, but serves to round out their capabilities. A Absolver's secondary specialization improves on the 11th, 13th, 15th, 17th and 19th levels, simultaneously with their primary specialization.

Bonus Feats: At every even-numbered Absolver level (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 18th, and 20th), a Absolver gets a bonus combat-oriented feat. These bonus feats must be drawn from the feats associated with the chosen specialization(s) of the Absolver. A Absolver must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including ability score and base attack bonus minimums.

These bonus feats are in addition to the feat that a character of any class gets from advancing levels. A fighter is not limited to the list of fighter bonus feats when choosing these feats.
