Prestige Path: The Iron Dreadnought


This was created by combining the 4e Iron Vanguard and the 4e Dreadnought.

“With every attack I make, I grow stronger and more confident.”
-Jagnnash the Unstoppable, dragonborn hero

You become a vision of physical perfection, mighty in body and ruthless in your pursuit of victory. No one defends the front line of battle batter than you do, easily taking ground and pushing the enemy to and fro.

World-shaking battles were fought between the tieflings of Bael Turath and the dragonborn of Arkhosia. The deeds and exploits of these conflicts resound still in epic story and song. One such anthem is Lament of the Iron Dreadnought, a somber song that recounts the final mark of Jagnnash the Unstoppable, a great dragonborn hero.

A doughty warrior famed for his ability to fight on no matter the unjuries he sustained. Jagnnash accumulated a number of legends. He withstood the full fury of an angry blue dragon, shrugged off the lashes of a pit fiend's whip, and even killed a tiefling warlock who had hurled him through Hell. The Lament, though, speaks of this final battle and all he achieved in the last offensive against the tiefling empire. Jagannash felled a full legion of devils, strangled their succubus sorceress commander with his bare hands, and hammered his way through the walls of a fortress. He was climbing the tower that housed the tiefling war room when the earth rebelled and swallowed the citadel and all within it. It is whispered that Jagannash fights there still, despite the centuries. Such is his resillience.

design of those presented in Martial Exploits

Prestige Paths are a way to add another layer of flavor onto a character without using class levels. They are somewhere between a class and a background. Class levels are finite in 5e, so this allows for a light version of a class without breaking normal progression.

The Iron Dreadnought is a fantastic addition to your 5e games. It (along with many of the authors other prestige paths) is a great way to let your players diversify their charecters and split of from the more traditional fighters and barbarians. The pr [...]

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.
