    Default If you walk the path you believe to be right, you can't be wrong (Epic Destiny)

    Heroic Spirit
    An Epic Destiny*

    Few mortals have reached unimaginable heights, creating legends of themselves. Fewer still have legends that last onwards, gaining renown and momentum, being spoken of the world over. You are one of the latter group, a legend unlike any other. Be you a mighty warrior or a powerful mage, you have gone down in history as a mythical power, as a symbol. As a Heroic Spirit.


    Requirements: 21st level

    Level Benefit
    21st Phantasm, Beyond Mortals
    24th Hero's Mark
    27th Noble Phantasm
    30th Myth-Granted Power



    Phantasm (Ex): At 21st level, you have forged your own legend, forever binding one object to it. Select one magical item you own, and have used in a climactic battle. It immediately becomes an Item of Legacy, and you gain the associated Least, Lesser, and Greater Legacy feats for it. You do not have to pay any costs for the item, including personal costs.


    Beyond Mortals (Ex): At 21st level, you become completely immune to non-magical weapons and attacks, ignoring even alchemical items. You can only be harmed by weapons with at least a +1 enhancement bonus, or by spells, powers, or other magical or supernatural effects.


    Hero's Mark: At 24th level, your legend, be it of you being a powerful sorcerer or mighty warrior, has empowered you. You may choose a single destiny feature granted by any epic destiny at 21st level, or any class feature granted by a base class at any level up to 20th. You gain that class or destiny feature, using your character level as your effective class level in the class you chose the feature from.

    Noble Phantasm: At 27th level, your myths have further empowered your Phantasm, refining it to a more potent form. It gains a single ability from Epic Legacy Ability Menu Y immediately, and you do not need to complete an Epic Legacy ritual to access this ability. You gain the Epic Legacy feat for that item as a bonus feat. Furthermore, if you should add additional Epic Legacy abilities, you may reduce the cost for any rituals by 25%. As with Phantasm, you pay no personal costs for this item.

    Myth-Granted Power: At 30th level, tales of your acts of heroism and daring have spread, and several small cults to you have cropped up, empowering you. You gain Divine Rank 0, and all that it entails.


    Immortality: Lost in Myths
    For you, immortality is in the spoken word and lore. Upon death, you likely receive a place in the Hall of Battles on Ysgard, eternally feasting and cavorting with fellow legends, or you are called to the homeplane of your deity, serving as a general or champion to their followers. Perhaps at times you are called on by powerful mages, who request your aid with a quest, or you might venture forth on occasion, performing acts of heroism that only serve to increase your legend.


    ________________


    So, even though this was not quite done, I decided to post it. Maybe some feedback would help me decide on the 27th level ability. The name can change, if it seems fitting.


    This is my first shot at Epic rules, and honestly, I think it turned out fairly good. Before you ask, yes, it's a rough approximation of the Heroic Spirits of the Nasuverse.

    Hero's Mark says 23rd in the text.

    My first guess for the 27th would be something like a morale penalty to foes who have heard of you, and a huge bonus to rolls to hear of you. xD

    Phantasm is awesome by the way.

    Fixed.

    Hm... Might be interesting... I'll write one up and see how it looks.

    Phantasm is awesome by the way.
    Yeah. Weapons of Legacy are awesome...

    Without the crippling penalty of the penalties. With that, they're mundane, and honestly lame.

    And what is a Hero without their weapon of choice?

    actually, a legacy you found yourself is a good gp value, all things considered, although not as cheap as crafting an item.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    Where did you start yours?

    The PCs were already a special forces type unit in a kingdom's military, so the campaign started in the general's office.

    Update: Finally figured out the 27th level ability.


    I honestly didn't remember about Epic Weapons of Legacy until just now.

    The new ability should be plenty suitable.

    Only just now? Even having been a year, with the thing nigh explicitly said in the OP?

    Well I hadn't watched anything fate-ish before I last commented.
