Prestige Class: Hellknight[edit]

Hellknights are the opposite of the well beloved Lawful Good (or stupid) Paladin. Through whatever means, they have struck a deal with a devil and have abilities and powers contrasting that of a normal paladin. Their blood carries the unholy flame common among demons and devils and seek to spread the flame they bear.


To qualify for multiclassing into the Hellknight class, you must meet these prerequisites(in addition to the multiclassing prerequisites for your existing class):

Minimum level: 10th character level
Proficiencies: All martial weapons and all armor.
Alignment: Lawful Evil.
Spellcasting: Able to cast at least 1s- level spells.
Special: Made friendly contact with a devil.
