Oath of the Fallen Knight[edit]

This is a Subclass of Paladin

The Fallen Knight paladins were once a valorous knights that have broken their oaths, or committed some terrible sin, staining their reputation with shame. After a fall from grace, some paladins crawl further into the darkness, becoming anti-paladins, blackguards and oath-breakers; some, however, seek for closing, fighting to repair their mistake and clear their name.

Many of those who seek this oath were once loyal guards who have betrayed their protegees or their realms; others, have cowered in the face of danger, failing to uphold their vows. Either way, they find in the journey to redemption itself a source of power to fix the harm they have caused.

Tenets of the Fallen Knight[edit]

Each fallen knight have a unique reason to seek this oath, but they share the following tenets.

Resolution. Do whatever it takes to achieve redemption from your act, this is your last opportunity.

Mercy. Every creature deserves a second chance.
