2016-12-12, 03:55 AM
I sometimes create class archetypes for my group. The last one is paladin, who seek secrets of lost civilizations and tries to get as many ancient magic items as possible. These paladins are't really powerful in themselves, but they abilities allow them to get the best equipment, which levels the playing field. I create them for my magical post-apocalypse campaign and they are inspired by Brotherhood of Steel from Fallout.

My English isn't very good, so I apologize for grammatical, spelling and stylistic mistakes and I hope you will tell me about them as well as about your opinion of the archetype.

Preservation. Every piece of information about lost civilizations has great value and should not be lost. You have to protect it and don't let anyone destroy it.
