    Default Temple Guard (Prc)

    The Templar (created for LoC)

    The Temple Guard or Templar as they are more commonly refered to, are atypical holy warriors. Trained in their rather unique form of combat in the Temples of the Goddess Hemeliosa. As opposed to some orders of such types this Order of Crusaders do not hunt good, or evil. They do not care about such things, their only concern is bringing order, and freedom. Iron Fisted Rule is an affrontery. If people are not happy then there is no point in there being law. Slavery is an abomination, justy as is anarchy. Too much freedom or too little, either is indistinguishable from the other to these men and women in the service of their God. Be they in shining mail, plate, or even unarmored a single Temple Guard is often considered a force unto itself. Possessed of might and courage in insurmountable measure.

    Requirements:
    BAB: +3
    Feats: Must have True Believer.
    Race: Half-Giant (Template applicable)
    Special: Must Worship a Lawful Deity. (In LoC, must worship Hemeliosa.)
    Spell Casting: Must be able to cast Divine Spells of 2nd Level as a Cleric, Paladin, or Priest.

    Hit Dice: D10

    The Following are the class skills for the Temple Guard: Climb (Str), Diplomacy (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Any, taken individually), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), and Swim (Str).

    Why do the guards need raise dead? Don't the temple clerics have those spells?

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Good point, however, if you will excuse my logic... I have a rather lengthy reason for adding it to their spell list.

    1: Not everything that needs to be guarded is at the temple.

    2: Nor is everything that the temple may need to guard near it.

    3: The name, in this instance is probably misleading. They aren't standing at attention outside of the temple gate/doors, or inside of the temple constantly.

    4: A god of death may have one or two guarding tombs.

    5: They may guard religious processions. Raise dead also is not a healing/harming spell. So good/evil auto casting does not apply. Did you prepare only raise dead today? Good thing, we lost way more people than I have spell slots.

    6: Keeping in mind also, that raise dead isn't a perfect spell, unlike True Resurrection or Miracle, neither of which they have.

    7: If one of them guards a high functionary, and he dies 'oops we failed' is probably going to be unacceptable.
