The Captain/The Warlord Class for Heroes & Monsters

“Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King



CAPTAIN/WARLORD (HUMAN) (OPTIONAL: ALL RACES TO MAXIMUM LEVEL OF 8)

·         Starting HP: 8+1d6
·         HP Gained per Level: 4
·         HP Gained during Resting: 1d8
·         Weapons & Armor: Light & Medium armor; Shields. All weapons allowed.

SPECIAL FEATURES
  • ·      Battle Die/BD (Optional): If you are using the optional Mass Combat Rules, Captains provide a +1 bonus to BD roll and +2 at 10th level when leading troops in combat.
  • ·   Commands: Each captain get to specialize at 3 different & distinct categories of shout commands. The ones based at the offensive values, defensive ones and finally the utility ones. Captain must choose to allocate UD of d8, d6 & d4 to each category to emphasize their specialization. Each shout, when indicated, has duration of 1 round per Captain Level and each shout must be tested accordingly to each UD allocated. Each command is considered a Swift & Free action but is limited to one at a time. Silence will hinder captain’s abilities as much as surprise attacks (Storyteller’s discretion). Commands can be heard up to Nearby zone (60ft). There is no limit of how many people can be affected by each command (How many people fit to a 60 feet area?), but those storytellers who need an indicator we can assume that each command affect to a maximum of 1 person per captain’s level. Every time a Command is been used roll the correspondent UD; when 1-2 is rolled drop one step. When you roll a 1-2 on a d4 the Command is expended and the character has no more of it left. Commands will replenish after a long rest (8 hour).
