    Default Darken Sword D&D 3.5 PRC PEACH

    Darken Sword
    There are people who need no eyes to see.

    Darken Swords are elite warriors of a school of thought that thinks you shoudn't be reliant on sight in a fight. The ability to find and hit your enemy is not a function of your sight, but that of your skill as a warrior.
    Darken Swords train hard to overcome the limitations of sight and to become less reliant on one, easily misled sense in a fighting situation. A Darken Swords training gives them the ability to "see without seeing" and to match the accuracy of sight with something else.

    I like it.

    What other sense(s) are the Blindsense and Blindsight based on? It looks like hearing from the rest of the class.

    I don't know much balance stuff, so I'm afraid I can't help there. Also, I can see some monks going down this line, maybe even an organization of them.

    Cool concept, and also rather well-implemented. Have you considered some sort of capstone ability, like being able to predict an enemy's movements in the dark to gain a bonus to attack rolls?

    Well, the capstone was intended to be blindsight.

    It's an interesting class. But the capstone is a bit dull. Maybe something about blinding their opponents (possibly temporarily)
