Oath of the Medjai: New Paladin Archetype

Suggested Price $0.50

Paladins are knights who have taken up an oath, letting that oath guide them through the events of their lives.  Generally speaking these are oaths of protection.  Whether the paladin is protecting the people, a specific landscape, or perhaps even taking vengence on those who have been wronged, the paladin stands as a pillar for their order and belief system.  The Oath of the Medjai is an order that was born of its environment and the dangers of history.  These paladins protect others from the danger of the desert and the dark secrets that lie in ancient tombs.  This archetype is one meant to deviate from the traditional paladin and fit the desert region of its theme.  A bit of scout or ranger shows through in this wandering, careful knight.

I think this class has promise, but I have to question the slight focus in ranged spells being oath spells. The thing about Paladins is that they can't use their Divine Smite with a ranged weapon. Now if you added a feature into this subclass that would allow that, perhaps once a turn, it would make those ranged oath spells seem a little more promising. That's just my two cents however.

Hmmm, I hadn't considered that. To be fair I have done a lot of work and seen a lot more since making this. I'll have to make a note of this and look into creating an update.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
