Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Kenseijin.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Kenseijin are proficient with all simple and martial weapons. Kenseijin have no proficiency in armor or shields.

Oath of Freedom The Kenseijin swear an Oath to their blade, for it to protect them and to not doubt their blades will. In doing so the Kenseijin cannot wear any form of armor, except for shields, or they will break this bond with their sword and lose all of their kensei abilities. Breaking this Oath ensures that one will never be allowed to become a Kenseijin again. The Oath of Freedom can only be sworn to any blade of any quality or material that is not evily or good aligned. A Kenseijin can swear an oath to a fallen Kenseijins blade, doing so allows the Kenseijin to use the blade to its full potential, only if the blade accepts its new wielder(EGO). In cases where a Kenseijin dual Wields he/she may swear their oath to multiple blades. The loss of either of the blades results in the same penalty as if they had only one, if both are destroyed the Kenseijin takes 4x the Results.

Exponential Hit Die (Su): Every level the Kenseijin gains they gain more and more hit die equal to their level. I.E. 1 at level 1, 2 at level 2 for a total of 3, 3 at level 3 for a total of 6 and so on to a maximum of their Wis Modifier. if the Kenseijin has a 19 wis, +4 and it moves up to 20, +5 the kenseijin would gain every hit die that they would have normally acquired of they originally had a 20 wis. This ability is gained after the kenseijin swear their "Oath of Freedom". This ability only is active while the oath of Freedom is intact, breaking that oath destroys all extra HD gained from this ability. This ability only applies to Kenseijin HD, No other classes. should a character lose all the HD they would have had, they must make a Fort save to save Vs. Massive damage for their HP loss, Failure would result in the death of the player due to massive loss. The Kenseijin are limited to a max of 10Hd per level regardless of their Wis Mod. Once a Kenseijin goes Epic, they are Limited to 15 HD Per epic level only, that means that they do not gain all the HD they would have gained if they had a max of 15 the whole time, just epic levels, 11 Hd at 21 12 HD at 22 13 Hd at 23, ECT...untill they gain 15 per level, the kenseijin can gain as many levels in kenseijin as they wish, gaining bonus feats, and leveling their sword as if its abilities kept progressing.

Sword Bearer The Kenseijin' bond with their blade becomes empowered by his/her experiences. sharing the players experience with their Sword. This can be done in 10% increments from 10%-90%. The Sword becomes intelligent, but its Ego can never control its Wielder. The Sword of a Kenseijin is useless in the hands of anyone besides its true owner. if the blade is stolen it loses all its abilities until the Kenseijin wields it again, aswell as becoming unsharpenably dull, doing half damage as non-lethal. If the Sword should break, the Kenseijin must recoup for 1 month and create a new Oath with another Sword. All Experience that was put into the blade is lost. If a Kenseijin Chooses to Swear to multipul blades he/she must share experience with both blades seperatly, 10% self 45% 1 45% 2 is an example. Any blade that the Oath is sword to can deal either lethal non lethal at the will of the Owner, anything from wooden training sword to Chainsaw. Also, anytime that the kenseijin meditates, he/she becomes under the effect of greater sustainance. Not having to Eat, Sleep, Breate, or Drink as long as they are meditating.

Solid Thought(Ex) The Kenseijin and his/her Blade start to think as one, in doing so any will save must be rolled for both the Kenseijin and his/her blade, if either make the save, it is considered a Success. Both Kenseijin and Blade Must gain this ability for it to work

Diamond Soul (Ex): At 17th level, the kenseijin gains spell resistance equal to his/her current kenseijin level + 10. In order to affect the kenseijin with a spell, a spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) that equals or exceeds the kenseijin's spell resistance.

Rage of the Kenseijin(Ex)

Regular Effect - A Kenseijin can track down his/her blade as if Scrying by Divine. Magic effects that would cancel scrying would not effect the blade unless they worked against Divine.

NOTE:This following is designed for OP Campaigning only...this is not a regular
ability and should only be used with DM approval for High Power Campaigns.

As the Kenseijin builds bond with their blade, they realize their attachment and weakness, that is their blade. In such cases that the kenseijin is aware that ther blade has been removed from their possession, they go into a divine rage, gaining +2 STR and +2 CON, aswell as the traditional -2 Hit to AC. Aswell as Unleashing a fury of divine energy, this takes place in 1 of 3 forms, depending on your blades main paths: Divine, Arcane, Mundane.

Sacred-Furious White pulsating energy ripples from the Kenseijin taking the form or wings, a cape/cloak..Ect ending in 6 main pieces each able to make a ranged touch attack asif they were Brilliant energy, and of the same enchanment bonus of the Kenseijins blade. they can also make grapple attemps to retrieve the blade + to the Kenseijins grapple mod. (Perception)

Wrathful - Large orbs of white energy form and circle around the Kenseijins head asif they were Ioun stones. each shooting or arcs of White Lightning, Dealing 1D6/2 Levels of Kenseijin of Holy and/or Lightning Damage for purposes of resistance or Damage Reduction. The Kenseijin can shoot 1 of the 3 balls at their blade losing the effects of the ball, but causing anything touching or withing a 10ft Radius of the blade to take 10D6 Fire and Holy Damage. (Insight & Deception)

Fury - The Kenseijin starts to glow, and tattoos begin to pulsate with white energy, the Eyes of the kenseijin Ignite with white fire, aswell as the hair of the Kenseijin. The Kenseijins speed increases by 50Ft. and can move as if unstoppable. resistant to all damage from non hostile creation. The Kenseijin can Make a will save DC=10+(1 for every 20 Ft the blade is away to the kenseijin) to call his/her blade. In which case the blade flies to its true owner at insane speed, unless bound, in which case the blade makes STR check = Kenseijins STR & Base Attack, aswell as the Blades WIS Mod to break free and fly to its master. (Strength, Speed, & Fortitude)

This state of Rage happens only when the Kenseijins blade is removed from his/her possession, and lasts aslong as the kenseijin is without their blade or until they are forced unconscious. Feats can be taken to benifit this form of rage, and for purposes of prerequisits, this rage is limitless, or /will, even though it can only be activated through theft of a kenseijins blade. Using a magical effect that forces someone to become enraged would activate this ability.

Bonus Feats These feats can only be chosen if the player has the Prerequisits. Bonus feats can also be sacrifics for spending points (See the Oathbound blade area for desc.) 1 BF = 1 SP

Blind-Fight, Blind Sight, Cleave, Combat Expertise, Combat Reflexes, Deflect Arrows, Diehard, Dire Charge, Dodge, Endurance, Exceptional Deflection, Exotic Weapon Proficiency, Great Cleave, Greater Power Specialization, Greater Two-Weapon Fighting, Greater Weapon Focus, Greater Weapon Specialization, Hold the Line, Improved Bull Rush, Improved Critical (Oath bound weapon), Improved Disarm, Improved Feint, Improved Grapple, Improved Initiative, Improved Overrun, Improved Sunder, Improved Trip, Improved Two-Weapon Fighting, Improved Unarmed Strike, Improved Whirlwind Attack, Infinite Deflection, Knock-Down, Mind Over Body, Polyglot, Power Attack, Power Critical, Power Specialization, Mobility, Quick Draw, Reflect Arrows, Run, Snatch Arrows, Spring Attack, Stand Still, Superior Expertise, Superior Initiative, Track, Two-Weapon Defense, Two-Weapon Fighting, Two-Weapon Rend, Weapon Finesse, Weapon Focus (Oath bound weapon), Weapon Specialization, Whirlwind Attack,


Kenseijin are allowed to multiclass without penalty, but if a Kenseijin breaks his oath of freedom, they are never allowed to become a kenseijin again, this usually causes an Alignment change to CN, and drives the Kenseijin Critically Insane. In doing so they usually die very quickly dues to suicide or sleep deprivation from their blade haunting or hounding them constantly.

Kenseijin Lore[edit]

Characters with ranks in Knowledge(History) can research Kenseijin to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.

DC Result
5 Common traits that would identify one as a Kenseijin in stories of the past.
20 What the Kenseijin are, Their abilites, and how they operate.
45 The Location of where some Master Kenseijin are "Burried".*
50 The Abilities and Traits or their Swords, Specific to the Kenseijin revealed with the DC:45 Check.**
  • Note - Kenseijin of this level become immortal, in some cases they actually die, in others they fake their deaths in order to dwell carelessly in solitude until their time of need.
    • Note - The Sword can only be used truly by its Master. In cases like this the Character might see the sword as useless or Damaged. Only after succeeding an extremely high Knowledge History or appriase check might one find worth in the blade, but in no way able to identify it magically or not.

Kenseijin in the Game[edit]

Legend of the 15 Eyes: The 15th Long has it been told that a Group of warriors roam the world training, honing and mastering their skills for when the world falls out of balance, and calls apon them, Kenseijin who have been waiting ages, Some said to be dead, others eternally Youthful...When will they be needed again.

EL 7 (27 if Prevoked) After finding a secret door while exploring a hidden dungeon, the party stumbles through a set of passages and finally arives at a seal room. Apon the room there are 14 marking each with a blade in it, around a 15th also with a blade. no search or spot check can allow a player to open this door, it is a test. to open the door the playermust pull the 15th blade out and align it like the other 14. after doing so the door dustily slides up into the roof, 15 seconds later closes, with no means of opening it. in this secret dust fdilled room lies an ancient looking sarcoboius in the middle of the room, very crude looking, but very masterfully build. After successfully searching it the players can determine that it is locked from the inside, again the 14 emblems circle around the 15th, but this one is in proper order. apon a player deciding to press on the blade of the 15th a small click can be heard within the coffin. inside lies a barely decayed body, ancient and petrified clothing and n ornate blade, nothing happens until a player decided to remove the blade from the sarcoboii, after which the body raises out and calls apon the blade. in doing so the player who tookthe blade must succeed a Strength check DC:20, apon failure the blade flies to the land of the corpse, apon success the player is slowly dragged closer and slocer to the body. Along with failure the corpse returns to his coffin and begins to close it, during which the players must ask him who he is in a specific language, DMs choice. apon success the player will finally reach the corpse and is forced to let go by the will of the blade, in doing so the corpse askes who faces him, and why they have come? Failure again, the corpse will explain that hes is the 15th of the 15 eyes, and he has been in meditation for over 10,000 years, waiting for the call. and will answer any questions the players ask, as their reward. success, the Player who held on to the blade earns honor with the 15th eye, and is given a small crude copper earring, it will jingle when, any of the 15 eyes are close, and it will ignite on fire when danager is stirring, this does not cause any damage, mearly a warning. DMs coice to end, to exit all the players have to do is walk through the rock, after which the door is present again.

Legend of the 15 Eyes: Becoming the 5th (Kenseijin Only)(Party may come along)Apon successful research of the Kenseijin and the 15 Eyes, a player Kenseijin can successfully find out that the 5th Eye was slain defending a Legendary city long lost from a Paragon Red Great Wyrm and its Minions. Slaying the Great Dragon, and saving the City over 75,000 Year ago.

EL 25 too come.

Primary Ability & Secondary Ability Abilities[edit]

As the Kensei Infuse their lifes work, dedication, learning, and experience into their blade, it becomes more and more like them with 2 characteristics: Primary, the main focus and drive, aswell as the methodism used to achieve the kenseijins goals, aswell as the Secondary, the Support, Definition, and Diversity of each kenseijin. the Kenseijin gain 1 primary and 3 secondary abilities, they can exchange 2 secondaries for another primary. The 6 Paths as as follows: Strength (STR), Speed (DEX), Fortitude (CON), Insight (INT), Perception (WIS), and Deception (CHA).

As the kenseijins Blade levels up and it gains abilites, they will gain feats based on the levels of power they have in a specific path, I.E. if a Kenseijin just became level 2 he/she would gain a Primary Ability, if said ability was used for the Power ability in the strength path, the Kenseijin would have a total ability level of 1 in the strength path and unlock Power attack, The Feats unlocked by this are only given while wielding the blade, and cannot be used as prerequisites, on the other hand, these feats are gained regardless of the requirments. If the Kenseijin already has the feat nothing happend unless the feat is stackable. Now for example the same kenseijin 20 levels later with a 20th level blade has power level 2 and hate level 2, his/her total ability level would be 4 and would gain all 4 special feats or abililities of that path, if the Kenseijin has power level 2 and speed level 2 then Their ability level would be Strength level 2 and speed level 2 and unlock the according abilities.

Spending Point[edit]

The Kenseijins blade is diverse gaining abilites like no other item. using spending points they are allowed to follow any options they want. 1 point can be used to purchase a Secondary ability, and 2 points for a Primary ability. The Wielder only has feats that have been gained on their blades while wielding their blades, and cannot use that feat for prerequisits. Also the Blade can use a spending point to gain +1 Enchantment slot for purposes of Magical enchantment such as keen or Flaming are +1, Speed +3, Brilliant Energy +4, vorpal +5. things of that sort, Spending points go away after being used and cannot be sacrificed for something better. if you take keen you no longer have a spending point and would need to save up 3 to gain the speed ability.
