The Right Hand

From World of Charun

The Right Hand is a Prestige Class. It has to be applied for in order to pick. Image:TheRightHand.jpg


The Watchful Servant


The Right Hand is essentially a protector who has dedicated himself to guard a person with their lives. They are selfless wardens with powers to shield others from harm and react to danger with equal parts focus and fury.


While bodyguard by title, the Right Hand's abilities aren't strictly defensive; they are trained to kill swiftly, not to endlessly absorb punishment until more help arrives. They come from all walks of life, though the job is most suited for fighters, rangers, paladins and rogues who have the necessary mix of martial prowess and combat reflexes.

Warding Presence: At 1st level, the Right Hand gains an aura that grants +2 to all saving throws, +1 deflection bonus to armor class for all allies within 10 feet. This bonus does NOT apply to the Right Hand, only to his allies). At 4th level, this bonus increases to +3 saving throws, +2 deflection bonus, and the protection extends to allies within 15 feet.

Improved Unarmed Strike: At 1st level, the Right Hand gains the Improved Unarmed Strike Feat. The Right Hand is always prepared to give battle, even should he find himself without a weapon in hand.

Tower Shield Proficiency: At 1st level, the Right Hand becomes proficient with the Tower Shield.

Toughness: At 2nd level, the Right Hand gains the Toughness Feat - a result from the strive of being in the best possible physical shape.

To the Ward's Side: At 3rd level, the Right Hand can rush across the battlefield and defeat enemies plaguing his allies. This translates to a +10% increase in movement speed, +2 bonus to AC against attacks of opportunity provoked by movement and +2d6 sneak attack damage.

Take the Blow: At 4th level, the Right Hand can protect one selected ally within 30 feet. This protection acts as the shield other spell cast at the Right Hand's character level. The only difference with the spell is that the target only takes 30% damage (instead of 50%), and the Right Hand takes half the initial damage rounded down (instead of the remaining).

Sacrifice One's Body: At 5th level, the Right Hand can concentrate for a round and focus his strength, making all of his melee attacks for the next three rounds inflict maximum damage. However, at the end of each of these three rounds, the Nine takes 10 points of damage from the incredible strain.
