Class Features[edit]

<-fluff about class features->. All of the following are class features of the Hero of Courage.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Hero of Courage is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, and shields (except tower shields).

Hero's Garb: The hero is clad in traditional garments somewhat resembling pajamas. These garments may be comfortably worn over light armor, and consist of a tunic, a belt, and a floppy conical cap. While wearing the Hero's Garb, the Hero of Courage gains a bonus to will saves against fear effects equal to his charisma modifier. The tunic may be used as an additional enchantment slot beyond the enchantment slot associated with any armor worn under it.

Quick Draw: The Hero gains the Quick Draw feat, as described in the Player's Handbook.

Whirlwind Attack: The Hero gains the Whirlwind Attack feat, as described in the Player's Handbook, regardless of prerequisites.

Hero's Armament (Ex): At the third level, and two levels thereafter, the Hero of Courage gains proficiency with new equipment, and expands his mastery of his existing arsenal. At the levels indicated, the Hero selects a weapon. The Hero of Courage gains Weapon Focus (and Exotic Weapon Proficiency, if applicable) feat with that weapon. When three further Hero's Armament Feats have been taken, the Hero gains Weapon Specialization feat with the selected weapon, and when six further Hero's Armament feats have been taken, he gains the Greater Weapon Focus feat with the selected weapon. The hero may select a specific magical weapon for this feat. In addition to the normal benefits granted, the Hero also gains a competence bonus equal to his charisma modifier to any Use Magic Device checks made for that item.

Hero's Arsenal (Su: At the third level, the Hero of Courage gains a special bag of holding attached to the belt of his Hero's Garb, which may only be used to store his Hero's Armaments(and any associated ammunition), and any spare Hero's Garb outfits. When spare changes of Hero's clothes are placed in the bag of holding, they are available one hour later, magically laundered and folded. This bag of holding cannot be separated from the belt of the Hero's Garb, and can only be accessed by the Hero.
