A black phoenix above flames on a white field: a common heraldry for Anti-Paladins who have attained Knighthood

Anti-Paladin is a prestige core class gaining martial prowess through fear and death.

Class created by Morluk the Merciless

These are the standard bad guys of legend. Almost any adversary in a stock fantasy movie can qualify as an Anti-Paladin, but historical cases abound – ranging from Vlad Dracul’s persecution of Turkish prisoners to Mongol warlords boiling opposing chieftains alive.

Insubstantial players may not move more than 10’ from the caster and may not speak. The caster may touch the player and then Incant “Rise and fight again” x10 to end this Insubstantial State so long as no living enemies are within 10’ of the bearer.
  4. If this Enchantment’s Insubstantial is removed from the Bearer in any other manner than outlined in item 3 (or prevented entirely) this Enchantment is removed.
  5. If the caster dies, this Enchantment is removed the next time the bearer returns to the caster.
  6. If the Enchantment is removed, the bearer dies.
  7. For the duration of the Enchantment, the bearer may treat the caster as a base for the purposes of the effects which require the bearer to go to their base.
  8. Dead players may be targeted by Undead Minion and are immediately returned to life with all Wounds removed and the Insubstantial State applied.
