    Default The Exalted [3.5][Epic Destiny]

    The Exalted

    After years of adventuring, heroes find themselves faced with one last quest. As they pursue their final journey, they realize and achieve their epic destinies, and eventually attain immortality if they can succeed. Some are destined to be great mages or immortal warriors...and then there are those chosen to be exalted. The Exalted are those who have been chosen as champions of some great and fundamental force of the world, destined to act as its guardian and avatar. The Solar Exalted are avatars of good and life, and eventually they as ascend to the heavens, their souls becoming one with the heavenly host. The Lunar Exalted are guardians of freedom and the wild, eventually losing their mortal forms and becoming immortal, legendary beasts. The Terrestrial Exalted are upholders of balance and order, eventually joining in divine union with the elements. The Sidereal Exalted are agents of fate and destiny, themselves destined to direct the fate of the world with their will. And the corrupt Abyssal Exalted are incarnations of death and decay, who long to become one with the void.

    Thanks to Krimm Blackleaf for inspiring this whole idea, and doing the Abyssals.

    Solar Exalted



    Solar Exalted are champions of good, their souls imbued with such holy essence that their entire nature is transformed. They do not serve any god or ruler, though they are steadfast allies of any good deity. Instead, they serve pure goodness itself, fighting as its champions against evil.

    Requirements: 21st level, any good alignment.

    {table=head]Level|Benefit
    21st|Solar Caste
    24th|Heaven-Graced Blow
    27th|Adamant Skin
    30th|Solar Hero
    [/table]

    Solar Caste (Su)
    All Solar Exalted belong to one of five castes. At 21st level, you choose which caste you belong to, and gain benefits based on your choice. You can never change the caste you belong to. In addition to your caste ability, you gain the Good subtype.

    Dawn Caste: Known as Ascending Suns, those of the Dawn Caste are soldiers, generals, and swordsmen. Whenever you attack or charge, all enemies within 60 ft. of you that can see you must make a Will save, DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma modifier, or be shaken for the rest of the encounter. Once an enemy successfully saves against this ability, it is immune to it for 24 hours.

    Eclipse Caste: Known as Crowned Suns, those of the Eclipse Caste are diplomats, couriers, and lawmakers. You are constantly surrounded by a zone of truth effect, caster level 30th, with a Will save DC of 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma modifier. In addition, if you witness a bargain, oath, contract, or promise being made between two or more parties (you may be one of the parties), you may choose to sanctify it. All parties must make the agreement of their own free will, and cannot be compelled by any means mundane or magical. Any creature that violates a sanctified oath takes a -6 penalty to all ability scores, though it can never lower a score below 1, and gains one negative level for every five character levels it has, rounded down. These negative levels do not risk becoming permanent, but cannot be removed by spells and abilities that could normally remove them. The penalties only end if the transgressed against party forgives the violator, or if you choose to dismiss them.

    Night Caste: Known as Hidden Suns, those of the Night Caste are assassins and spies who serve the cause of good. Once per round, when you deal precision damage, such as sneak attack or skirmish damage, to an evil creature, you deal an additional amount of damage equal to half your character level, and that creature must make a Fortitude save, DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Dexterity score, or be stunned for 1 round. In addition, you may sneak attack undead of evil alignment.

    Twilight Caste: Known as Descending Suns, those of the Twilight Caste are artificers, mages, and scholars. The effects of the Consecrate Spell and Purify Spell metamagic feats are applied to all spells you cast, without changing their level. In addition, you gain a sacred bonus equal to one-half of your character level on caster level checks to overcome the spell resistance of evil creatures or to dispel spells cast by evil creatures.

    Zenith Caste: Known as Resplendent Suns, those of the Zenith Caste are priests and mystics. You gain fast healing 5 while in areas lit by natural sunlight. In addition, you may channel positive energy at will as a swift action, targeting a single creature at close range (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels). This heals the creature a number of points equal to half your character level, or damages it an equal amount if it is undead.

    Heaven-Graced Blow (Ex)
    Once per encounter, as a swift action, you may used this ability. You add a +20 sacred bonus to all attack rolls for attacks made against evil creatures, and add +5 to the DC of any spell with the good descriptor that you cast for 1 round.

    Adamant Skin (Ex)
    At 27th level, you gain damage reduction 20/adamantine and epic.

    Solar Hero (Su)
    At 30th level, any weapon you wield, as well as your unarmed strike and any natural weapons you have, is treated as being good-aligned and adamantine for overcoming damage reduction. In addition, as a free action, you may grant any weapon you wield the brilliant light special quality. You may dismiss it as a free action. In addition, spells with the good descriptor that you cast ignore the spell resistance of evil creatures.

    Celestial Host
    Once you have achieved your epic destiny, the holy essence of your soul can no longer be contained by your mortal flesh. It ascends to the Upper Planes, fusing with their very essence. Every celestial born from the Upper Planes is imbued with a shard of your soul, following in your holy path.

    Sidereal Exalted



    Your actions have shaped the fate of the world, and now you are chosen as an agent of Fate itself. The Sidereal Exalted act throughout the world, subtly influencing the course of history to see that destiny runs its appointed course. They can bend Fate to their will, altering reality with their power. Eventually, they transcend their mortal forms, becoming one with Fate.

    Requirements: 21st level, any neutral alignment

    {table=head]Level|Benefit
    21st|Sidereal Caste
    24th|Fateful Excellency
    27th|Another’s Destiny
    30th|Weave the Pattern of Fate
    [/table]

    Sidereal Caste (Su)
    All Sidereal Exalted belong to one of five castes. At 21st level, you choose which caste you belong to, and gain benefits based on your choice. You can never change the caste you belong to.

    Chosen of Battles: Known as Shieldbearers, those of this caste tend to the course of wars and battles, seeing to it that they reach their destined outcome. Once per day, at the start of an encounter, after initiative has been rolled, you may choose to have you and all your allies take a round of action before any others do, even before the surprise round. You and all your allies may each take a normal round of action, but they cannot take any action that would harm their enemies, as with the time stop spell. In addition, time stop, temporal acceleration, and similar effects cannot be used as part of that round. If two Sidereal Exalted both use this ability, then the extra rounds are taken in the order of the Sidereals’ initiative count.

    Chosen of Endings: Known as Reckoners, those of this caste preside over the ends of mortal destinies. The damage dice of any precision damage you deal, such as sneak attack or skirmish damage dice, are increased by one step. In addition, whenever you roll a 1 on a precision damage die, you may reroll it with a +1 bonus, keeping the result of the reroll.

    Chosen of Journeys: Known as Harbingers, those of this caste see to it that all things carry out the journey to their own destiny. You gain a +30 ft. sacred bonus to all forms of movement you possess, and gain the constant benefit of a freedom of movement ability.

    Chosen of Secrets: Known as Oracles, those of this caste are entrusted with the secrets of Fate and foreknowledge of the future. You may use foresight once per day as a supernatural ability, and may use divination at will, both with caster level 21st.

    Chosen of Serenity: Known as Joybringers, those of this caste preside over happiness and joy, ensuring nothing keeps a man from the happiness he is fated for. You and all allies within 30 ft. of you gain morale bonus on all attack rolls, saving throws, ability checks, and skill checks equal to your Charisma modifier, maximum +5.

    Fateful Excellency (Su)
    Fate itself conspires to aid your every undertaking. Once per encounter when you would roll a d20, you may choose to instead not roll, and treat the result as a 20. It is not considered a natural 20. In addition, whenever you roll a 1 on an attack roll, saving throw, ability check, or skill check, you may reroll it, keeping the result of the reroll even if it is a 1.

    Another’s Destiny (Su)
    At 27th level, your destiny refuses to be cut short. Once per day, when you are reduced to 0 or less hp, you may have time regress by one round, as the time regression psionic power. You do not have to pay the power’s XP cost. However, this ability is not without a price. The continuance of your destiny comes at the cost of another’s, causing it to be cut short at some time before their fated death.

    Weave the Pattern of Fate (Su)
    You can alter reality to fit your will, reshaping fate where it has digressed from what you think it should be. Once per day, you may use the reality revision psionic power as a supernatural ability. You must pay the power’s XP cost.

    Agent of Destiny
    With your epic destiny achieved, you become one with Fate. Your mortal body dies, crumbling to dust, but your soul and mind become part of the world, your will shaping fate throughout the multiverse.

    The Abyssal Exalted are vicious life destroyers and the servants of a pantheon of dead gods, avatars of decay and evil. Their one and only duty is to destroy all life and to bring about nothingness and death. The Abyssal Exalted are also known as Deathknights, as they represent the power of entropy, death, and decay.

    Requirements: 21st level, any evil alignment.

    {table=head]Level|Benefit
    21st|Abyssal Caste
    24th|Artful Maiming
    27th|Deathly Body
    30th|Champion of Death
    [/table]

    All Abyssal Exalted belong to one of five castes. At 21st level, you choose which caste you belong to, and gain the benefits based on your choice. You can never change the caste you belong to. Additionally, you gain the Evil subtype.

    Daybreak Caste: Also known as the the Children of Bone, Daybreak Caste Abyssals are artisans and scientists of death, masters of necromancy, necrosurgery and magic.

Whenever you deal precision damage, such as sneak attack or skirmish damage, to a good creature, you deal an additional amount of damage equal to your character level, and that creature must make a Fortitude save, DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Dexterity score, or be stunned for 1 round. In addition, you may reroll a single save of each type once per encounter, making the reroll after you roll the save but before you see if it succeeds or not, and keeping the higher of the two results.

    Dusk Caste: Also known as the Children of Ash, Dusk Caste Abyssals are the dark generals, soldiers, and martial champions of death. Whenever you attack or charge, all enemies within 60 feet of you must make a Will save, DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma modifier, or be shaken for the duration of the encounter.

You are constantly surrounded by an unhallow effect and you count as a permanent shrine to an evil god for the purposes of the spell, caster level 21st. In addition, you may channel negative energy at will as a swift action, targeting a single corpse at close range (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels). This animates the corpse as though by the animate dead spell, with a caster level of 21st. The total HD of undead you may animate with this ability is equal to twice your character level.

    Moonshadow Caste: Also known as the Children of Dust, Moonshadow Caste Abyssals are bureaucrats, diplomats and couriers, those who excel at social interaction. Any creature that willingly lies within 30 ft. of you takes damage equal to your character level, with a Will save, DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma modifier, to half the damage. In addition, if you witness a bargain, oath, contract, or promise being made between two or more parties (you may be one of the parties), you may choose to corrupt it. All parties must make the agreement of their own free will, and cannot be compelled by any means mundane or magical. Any creature that violates a corupted oath takes a -6 penalty to all ability scores, though it can never lower a score below 1, and gains one negative level for every five character levels it has. These negative levels do not risk becoming permanent, but cannot be removed by spells and abilities that could normally remove them. The penalties only end if the transgressed against party forgives the violator, or if you choose to dismiss them.

    Artful Maiming (Ex)
    Once per encounter, as a swift action, you may used this ability. You add a +20 profane bonus to all weapon attack rolls and and variable spell damage against good creatures for 1 round.

    Deathly Body (Ex)
    At 27th level, you gain immunity to to critical hits, nonlethal damage, ability drain, energy drain, fatigue, exhaustion, and ability damage to Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. Negative energy heals you as if you were an undead creature, though positive energy does not harm you.

    Champion of Death (Su)
    At 30th level, any weapon you wield, as well as your unarmed strikes and any natural weapons you have, is considered to have the unholy and good outsider bane weapon qualities. In addition, all attacks you make and spells that deal damage that you cast deal an additional 3d8 points of negative energy damage. In addition, spells with the evil descriptor that you cast ignore the spell resistance of good creatures.

    Death Itself
    Your body decays and even if your skeleton walks it must eventually become one unto the nothingness of the void. Whenever a creature cries out in agony for the final time, whenever the walking dead rise and destroy the living, whenever any mortal coil is cut or bent to the will of death, your soul is a part of it, as another fiber of the tapestry that is nothingness.

    Yep, that's the one. Once Krimm showed me the epic destinies for 3.5, it kind of became a forgone crossover.

    Oh my giddy aunt Ciesta. I had almost given up on being able to make a proper character for your very own game, but this? Now this is how you can motivate someone.

    Edit: Just as a question, the Lunar Exalted mentions that you can gain Wildshape from the Destiny, but I don't see that feature...am I just glossing over something obvious? Oh, and the Lunar sorcerers are the No-Moons, not the New-Moons. Other than that nitpick, this is a really wonderful piece of work.

    Pretty slick. I like that you can choose what sub-caste of your over-arching Destiny to be, rather than shoe-horned into one specific role.
    People seemed to like this better, but only marginally so - the way one might prefer to be stabbed than shot. Optimally, one isn't stabbed or shot. Optimally, one eats some cake! But there are times when cake is not available, and instead we are destroyed. This is the deep poetry of the universe. -- Tycho Brahe

Oh, and the Lunar sorcerers are the No-Moons, not the New-Moons. Other than that nitpick, this is a really wonderful piece of work.
    Thought you'd like that. The wild shape ability comes from the caste; if you don't have it already, you gain it as a druid of half your level. As to the No Moon/New Moon thing...No Moon just sounds wrong to me, while New Moon sounds much better. Just a personal taste thing, I guess.

    Yeah, I was aiming for something that someone from any class could take and prosper.

    Oh. This is nice. About the lunars though; do you plan on adding the other two castes as well?

    I'm going by 2e, in which Waxing Moon, Waning Moon, and Half Moon are all rolled into the Changing Moons.

    I just noticed that one of the Lunar abilities is named "Invite the White Wolf."

    I chuckled.

    Holy awesome. I was trying to figure out which Epic Destiny I'd want in your campaign, and had settled mostly on Demi-god, but these look super promising. I can't wait to give them all a through read-through!

    Don't blame me, the name's right out of the Manual of Exalted Power. Very subtle.

    I think Shredder (if accepted) may want to go with Sidereal (Harbinger caste).

    What, exactly, is the negative effect of "Another's Destiny"? It certainly implies that something bad will happen to somebody...

    A little error in the Abyssal Exalted block:

    Artful Maiming (Ex)
    Once per encounter, as a swift action, you may used this ability. You add a +20 sacred bonus to all weapon attack rolls and and variable spell damage against good creatures for 1 round.
    Should be profane.

    There's no explicit mechanical penalty, but every time they use it, they cause someone's life to end a few years sooner than it should. Shouldn't have any in-game effect, just a bit of flavor (and angst, if you want to play it that way).

    Is the Lunar's wildshape going to allow for hybrid forms like in the picture? Or is that not possible. Half the fun of the Lunars was taking Deadly Beastman Transformation and tearing apart mooks.

    It's just normal wild shaping. I might work up a way to do hybrid forms.

    Well, why not just do sorta what DBmT does and have the Lunar select a totem animal and use the Lycanthropy rules to build a hybrid form and use the animal form (and upgrade the animal form to a dire form at a later level, perhaps?)

    Just a few thoughts.

    Otherwise, I like it. Makes me sad I'm running Eberron right now and can't use this. :P
