The She-Devil [New Class for B&T]
She-devils advance using the paladin XP scheme (see Blood & Treasure Players Tome).
Requirements: Strength and wisdom 11+, dexterity and charisma 14+
Hit Dice: d8 to 10th level, +3 hit points per level thereafter
Armor Allowed: Mail shirts (or shirts of leather, scale or ringmail*), shields and bucklers
Weapons Allowed: Any
Skills: Bend bars, break down doors, riding
She-devils must make a vow of chastity that can only be broken for a lover who has first defeated them in combat. If this vow is not upheld, the she-devil loses her special abilities. Her attack bonuses are reduced to that of a thief of the same level. She must atone to regain her abilities and must kill the person for whom she broker her vow. In addition, she-devils may not hire male henchmen, though they may use male hirelings and may adventure with male characters.
A she-devil enjoys a blanket +2 bonus to Armor Class due to her fluid fighting style and the blessings of Scathach. She-devils armed with a medium or larger weapon can deflect missiles, as a monk.
Although they balk at intimate human contact, a she-devil has a particular ability to affect the emotions of men. Once per day per level, a she-devil can exude an aura (30-ft. radius) that affects all men within the aura as either a crushing despair or cause fear spell. They can alternatively use this aura to inspire women as though using either the good hope or rage spell.
A she-devil can fly into a righteous rage under the following conditions: If she sees the weak being threatened or harmed by the powerful, if she sees a female humanoid being threatened or harmed, or if she is reduced to less than half her normal hit point total by a male humanoid (or monstrous humanoid). A raging she-devil enjoys a bonus to all saving throws, Armor Class and attack rolls equal to her charisma modifier. This rage lasts for 6 rounds. When it is over, the she-devil is fatigued (see conditions) for 1 hour. A she-devil can fly into this rage no more than three times per day.
A 6th level she-devil (hellion) may attack twice per round with a melee weapon.
A 9th level she-devil may establish a stronghold. She attracts a sisterhood of 2d6 amazons (of an alignment comparable to her own) and 4d6 commoners, all women and children, seeking shelter and safety.
A 12th level she-devil may invoke her righteous rage against male (or masculine) outsiders. In addition, the she-devil generates an effect equivalent to the protection from evil spell against these outsiders.

Speaking of Amazons, I noticed the B&T monster entry for them doesn't have a section for them as Player Chracters (like a lot of other humanoid monsters do), yet some are mentioned as having classes. Should they just be treated as normal humans?ReplyDelete
How about this: No ability modifiers.ReplyDelete
Blue amazons have a +2 to save vs magic spells and are only surprised on a roll of 1 on 1d8. They can multi-class as cleric/fighters, cleric/paladins or cleric/magic-users.
Green amazons have a +1 bonus to hit with bows and a knack at survival and tracking. They can multi-class as druid/fighters, druid/thieves (or maybe the scout variant thief) or druid/rangers.
Red amazons can enter a rage once per day for 3 rounds, during which time they can strike twice per round, but suffer a -2 penalty to Armor Class. They can multi-class as cleric/fighters, fighter/thieves and fighter/magic-users.
Faster She-Devil! Kill! Kill!ReplyDelete
Dang it, I've been trying to watch my gaming budget, but I'm gonna have to order B&T now. LOLReplyDelete
Any plans to convert some of the cool Pars Fortuna races to B&T?
I'm mulling over that idea - might work as an article for the magazineReplyDelete
Ooo - maybe call it "Blood & Fortune"ReplyDelete
I love it!!! I would definately pick that up!!Delete
Are hit dice meant to be d8 or d10. The text says one, the table says another.ReplyDelete
Whoops - sorry about that. d8 - corrected now.Delete
