    Default Destroyer (3.5 Base Class) PEACH

    Destroyer

    Destroyers are the bringers of doom on the battlefield. Their view is that they have been supernaturally empowered for one purpose only; to fight and win. While mostly they rely on their supreme skill at arms and general fighting capability, they are at least partly right, manifesting blatantly supernatural powers.
    They are warriors, often working as mercenaries, but more for the thrill of battle than the actual pay for the work. They are common as adventurers, due to the fact that the typical adventurer's career involves lots and lots of fighting.
    Good destroyers are rather rare, as the philosophy of fighting for fighting's sake often clashes with altruistic outlooks on live. Still, there are those who take their "divine empowerment" as a call for a crusade against evil. Chaotic and Evil are rather common, but lawful evil destroyers are quite common as well, for the typical lawful evil outlooks mesh quite well with the destroyer's
    Destroyer's are often found in more savage races like half-orcs. However, among the typical civilized races, human destroyers are common, followed by dwarves.

The destroyer may make a fortitude save against this effect in addition to any other to hit rolls or saves. If this fortitude save is successful, the attack is negated in full. Including for an area attack. The destroyer nullifies the entire attack.


    I had this idea for a fighting base class, so I made it. I'm gunning for about warblade power level. The Destroyer has less options, he can use them more often and they're generally a bit more powerful. He'll probably have less skills than the warblade, since Int isn't a priority for him.
    The might powers are probably the highest potential sources of imbalance here.
    Anyway, PEACH please.

    It's a per encounter store. They don't regain their empowerment points. They basically get that storage for every encounter.
