Combatant[edit]

The Combatant is a class that doesn't choose one particular fighting style to specialize in, but rather takes a little bit of all of them into consideration. Combatants start out able to cast very few spells, with barely any extra damage for sneak attacks, and doesn't get bonus feats nearly as frequently as the average fighter. However, their well-roundedness makes it hard to abuse their weaknesses, and they can specialize a bit more later in their progression through their Traveled Paths.

Making a Combatant[edit]

Combatants are offensively oriented, but have decent saves all across the board. Their D8 of HP means they won't be as fragile as a wizard, but they still aren't front line fighters. They have more skills than the average class, but less than the Rogue.

Abilities: When making a Combatant, one should consider which paths they want to go down in the future, and try to keep their stats as even as possible. Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Intelligence are all just as useful, with Wisdom and Charisma being only useful for skills and Will saves.


Races: Combatants can be any race, but the Versatility of Humans lends itself well to it.

Alignment: The Combatant can be any alignment, though they tend towards Chaotic ones.

Starting Gold: 3d4 x 10 GP (75GP average)

Starting Age: As Fighter.
