Oath of Penance

Suggested Price $1.26

A paladin oath for players (and DMs) who wish to build a paladin capable of bearing the physical and emotional pain of their party. 

Paladins under this oath have taken it upon themselves to recieve both blessing and punishment from their deity, usually as a response for wrongs they have done in the past. These paladins are the backbone of the party, receiving damage in place of their allies while also being pillars of morality in social environments.

This paladin oath has channel divinity options that allow the paladin to brand sinners for righteous judegment as well as read the worst sins of those they encounter. In addition, they emit an aura that allows them to recieve meant for their allies and can flagellate themselves to deal damage to others.

This oath was inspired by aspects of the catholic church and the concept of using pain to punish oneself for your sins. I also really liked the idea of making a tank sub-class that allowed the player to recieve damage in place of your allies and thought that paladins would be best suited for this.

Feedback and donations are very welcome! Any donations given will be used to fund my inernship in the coming year as well as go to the artists who donated their art. I hope you enjoy!

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.
