Special Features Edit
Judgement of the Sun Edit
Once per day, a knight can call out to the powers of Pelor to aid in his struggle against evil. As a swift action, the knight chooses one target within sight to judge. If this target is not of a good alignment, the knight adds his Charisma bonus (if any) to his attack and damage rolls made against the target of his judgement. In addition, while judgement of the sun is in effect, the knight gains a deflection bonus equal to his Charisma modifier (if any) to his AC. If the knight targets a creature that is good, the judgement is wasted with no effect. The knight’s judgement effect remains until the target of the judgement is dead or the next time the knight rests and regains his uses of this ability. At 4th level, and at every three levels thereafter, the knight may use judgement of the sun one additional time per day.
Divine Power Edit
This represents the power granted to the knight from the divine, this is the power that fuels the abilities he gains from Pelor. A knight gains power equal to level + charisma modifier, and can use these points on any ability he has been granted as he sees fit.
Divine Touch Edit
A knight can heal wounds (her own or those of others) by touch. Each Use of this ability cost 1 power. The knight can heal for 1d6 + level hit points of damage, at level 3 this healing increase to 2d6 + level, then at level 6 and every 3 levels beyond this healing increase again. Using this ability is a move action.
Divine Oath Edit
Every knight must make oaths to Pelor and his order of knights to receive his blessings. Two oaths are required. Should the knight break his oath, he will lose all his class abilities. And the only way to return to grace is by doing a rigorous task set to him, by his order or an intermediary from the divine. He can also seek redemption from a powerful follower of the faith (a priest that can cast atonement or a zealot that has gained the atonement blessing). Usually the person doing the atonement demands some sort of sacrifice; a priest might demand that the zealot atone by humbling himself in a month of menial labor, or do chores that he deems beneath him, to teach him the lesson of humility. Oath examples: These are just examples, there is a multitude of oaths, a player and gm agree to the oaths that fit the chosen god and character.
Oath examples Edit
- Offering of earthly goods: Give half of the gold you earn to the poor and those in need.
- Help the weak: When you a place with poor or destitute people you will try to help, maybe put up soup kitchens etc. This will also be a setting where if the knight enters a tyrannical country, he can plan to help the people in the long run by toppling the tyranny etc.
- Hunt the wicked: Your oath is to hunt down and either redeem or kill all the followers of an evil church, religion, cult or order etc.
- Cure the sick: If you have the means and abilities, you will take the time needed to help and cure or heal the sick and those in need.
- Servitude: You are obliged to help the churches and your knight order when they need it, be it to defend it, deliver a critical message or other major events, a priest of the faith know better than to task a zealot with menial tasks like cleaning, maintenance etc.
- Spread the word: You swear an oath that you will bring your god and your orders words around the world and convert the unknowing. By choosing this oath you accept that as long as your legs can carry you, you will travel the road and you will hold sermons and speeches to spread the word.
Divine Grace Edit
At 2nd level, the knight gains a bonus equal to his Charisma bonus (if any) on all saving throws.

- Staggered: The target is no longer dazed or staggered, unless the target is at exactly 0 hit points.

Aura of Courage Edit
At 3rd level, the knight is immune to fear (magical or otherwise). Each ally within line of sight of him gains a +2 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects. This ability functions only while the knight is conscious, not if he is unconscious or dead.
Divine Steed Edit
Upon reaching 4th level, the knight gains the service of an unusually intelligent, strong, and loyal steed to serve in his crusade. This mount is usually a heavy warhorse (for a Medium knight or a war pony (for a Small knight). Once per day, as a full-round action, the knight may magically call her mount from the realm of Pelor. The mount immediately appears adjacent to the knight and remains for 2 hours per knight level; it may be dismissed at any time as a free action. The mount is the same creature each time it is summoned, though the knight may release a particular mount from service (if it has grown too old to join her crusade, for instance). Each time the mount is called, it appears in perfect health, regardless of how much time has passed. The mount also appears wearing or carrying any gear it had when it was last dismissed (including barding, saddle, saddlebags, and the like). Calling a mount is a conjuration (calling) effect. Equal to a spell level 1/3 the knight’s level. Should the knight’s mount die, it immediately disappears, leaving behind any equipment it was carrying. The knight may not summon another mount for thirty days or until he gains a level, whichever comes first. Using this ability to call a mount cost 1 power point per use. The mount uses the stats of a druid’s animal companion to determine the stats and progression of the mount. It has a starting intelligence of 6, which increases by +1 every 4th level.
Shield of Flaming Truth Edit
At level 5 the knight gains the shield of flaming truth blessing, allowing the knight to enhance his shield as a move action by calling upon the aid of Pelor. This ability works on any small or large shields, but only when the knight is wielding it. The knight can spend 2 power to activate this ability, and it lasts for 5 rounds when activated. When the knight has called for aid, the shield lights up as the light spell.
5th level: This blessing sheathes the shield in fire, causing anyone who attacks the knight to take 1d6 burning damage unless he has a reach weapon, the shield also gain +1 enhancement bonus, that stacks with permanent enhancement, and the light fortification special ability.
8th level: The enhancement increases to +2, and the shield gains the blinding special ability.
11th level: The fire shield effect deals 2d6 points of damage and the shield lights up like a daylight spell.
14th level: The shield gains medium fortification. It also gains the ability to shoot flames in a 30 foot cone, dealing 5d8 points of fire damage (Ref half, dc 10 + half knight level + cha bonus), this ability can be activated 1 time per activation of the shield of flaming truth ability.
17th level: The enhancement bonus increases to +4.
20th level: The enchantment bonus increases to +5, the fire shield effect increases to 3d6 points of fire damage and it gains the heavy fortification special ability.
Pelors Holy Word Edit
When the knight is granted this blessing, he can write down the divine scripture sent to him by his god. Any other knight of the same order can then read the words of Pelor and receive its blessing. This almost works as scribe scroll, except that the knight does not know what miracle is granted to him before the miracle is written. By spending 5 divine power and 10 gold he can write a random level 1 miracle. This takes 10 minutes. Only other knights of Pelor can read and understand the holy scripture. This can then be fastened to the knight’s armor and by uttering the holy words, the miracle is unleashed and the parchment burns to ash.
Level 5: Level 1 Miracle. Cost: 5 Divine power and 10 gold. Time to scribe: 10 minutes.
Level 8: Level 2 Miracle. Cost: 7 Divine power and 20 gold. Time to scribe: 20 minutes.
Level 11: Level 3 Miracle. Cost 9 Divine power and 40 gold. Time to scribe: 40 minutes.
Level 14: Level 4 Miracle. Cost 11 Divine power and 120 gold. Time to scribe: 2 hours.
Level 17: Level 5 Miracle. Cost 13 Divine power and 240 gold. Time to scribe: 4 hours.
Level 20: Level 6 Miracle. Cost 15 Divine power and 500 gold. Time to scribe: 8 hours.
When the knight is scribing a miracle, randomly choose a spell from the Miracles of the Heavenly Brothers list. Sometimes the situation is dire and the knight can ask for a specific miracle, in which case it is up to the gm to decide if the dice is weighted or not. The knight can only have a number of miracles written down equal to one third of his knight level + Cha modifier.
Eyes of the Sun Edit
At 7th level Pelor grants the knight enhanced sight, he gains limitless dark vision and he can see in colors even at night.
Divine Health Edit
The knight is now so devoted in his crusade for his beliefs that Pelors flames burn like a hot flame inside him. This grants him immunity to disease and poison.
Channel Energy Edit
At level 9 the knight can channel his divine power into an area of effect healing. This works like channel energy in core rulebook, except that it costs 3 power, and you heal 1d8 per 2 knight levels.
Aura of Resolve Edit
At 11th level, the knight is immune to charm spells and spell-like abilities. Each ally within line of sight of him gains a +2 morale bonus on saving throws against charm effects. This ability functions only while the knight is conscious, not if he is unconscious or dead.
Champion of the Sun Edit
This is the epiphany of blessings any knight can be granted. When a knight is granted this boon, a part of his soul ascends. As a full round action, the knight opens himself up to the will of Pelor and lets it pour into his very being. This grants him a celestial appearance. He sprouts flaming wings that let him fly with good maneuverability at a speed of 60ft. The radiance of his wings is so strongly infused with the divine, that allies within a 30ft radius gain fast healing 5, while evil outsiders and undead within the area takes 2d6 points of fire damage each round (no save or SR). He also gains +4 STR, +4 CON, +4 CHA as a holy bonus. In addition his attacks penetrate all types of DR except DR/-. He can maintain this form for 1 round per 2 knight levels.
