Meet the Crusader, the battle-priest of Elrath! Like sunflowers in armor, Crusaders always turn their heads to the light. Their main purpose is to protect their allies, heal their wounds, clean them of curses and even to bring them back from the dead.
Crusaders can be found all over the world, spreading the teaching of the Light and fighting all the evils they encounter.
Being Followers of the Light, Crusaders represent the ideals of truth, justice and perfection. As knights in shiny armor, they protect their party members from all evil, but are also quite capable to fend for themselves.
Like all other humans, Crusaders have a strong connection to Air and Light. In General, humans are said to be dynamic, but rather short-lived compared to the other races.
Here’s how the Skills are distributed for the Crusader. They can become Grand Master in Swordfighting, Heavy-Armor-Wearing, Arcane Discipline and Light Magic (Sword and Light Magic are also their starting skills).
The Advanced Class of the Crusader
Champions of the impossible quests with faith as their guiding star, Paladins are Crusaders that have answered the calling of Elrath, the Dragon God of Light. They make a sacred oath that is magically binding and blesses them with tremendous powers that allies respect and rivals fear.
The Paladin’s special spells: “Lay on Hands” and “Mandate of Heaven”
The Paladin can completely restore all the Health of all party members by casting “Lay on Hands”. But all Mana will be gone after that.
The other special spell of the Paladin, “Mandate of Heaven” also costs all Mana. It is a party buff that adds Light Damage to all successful strikes caused by melee weapons, ranged weapons and magic foci wielded by party character.
Why would you want to have a Crusader in your party?
Why wouldn’t you want a heavy-armored healer who is also a Grand Master with the sword?
