Balancing Issues[edit]

First of all, I would like you to know that this is an interesting paragon path but in the terms of paragon paths, monsters and other NPCs wont ever use them if you were thinking this would be a 4e equivalent to the Black Guard. Second if after you change the flavor, the class needs some rebalancing. +1 strength is kind of an awkward penalty, and giving a permanent penalty to a defense just seems wrong to me and it doesn't go in accordance with the rest of 4e. Also the other parts of the Undead Power feature just aren't synergeous at all with any other class features and that aside, they don't really make a lot of sense in role playing terms (I know you're just expecting people to come up with their own). The other two features are also a bit strong actually, now that I look at it, you didn't plan this out very well did you? I mean, who would pick AC over Reflex when AC will always be a higher value? Anyway maybe we should just put this one up for deletion or I could just edit it. It's really up to you, but the clock is ticking and I have limited patience for unusable items.
