Oath of the Protectors


The Oath of the Protectors is a new paladin oath for players who view their paladins as protectors. A paladin protector views honor, duty, courage, and selfless service as essential virtues. They are vigilant watchers, ever looking for danger as they protect their charge while advancing the causes that align with their principles.

Sounds very tropey, though not necessarily a bad thing.

Perhaps, it is a common stereotype for paladins. However, I really worked to make the abilities of this paladin oath an embodiment that fully represents a paladin protector. I noticed with this system (D&D 5.0) that some players can get caught up in optimizing characters with powers that, as an end result, seem rather selfish. This paladin really has powers and abilities that not only empower the individual character, but also close friends and allies. Although the base paladin class has powers and abilities that can be used to aid allies, the Oath of the Protectors pathway fully commits a paladin to helping others, and the powers and abilities provided should advance that goal.

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.
