Dark Knight

Powerful Suits of armor animated from high spiritual activity. These suits of armor produce a furnace like flame that erupts from their neck as they explode to life. Dark Knights have a sense of Chivalry unlike most demons, and prefer a fair fight over cheap tactics.

Powerful warriors as they never sleep and never tire, the Dark Knights are engines of destruction hired by overlords as guards and defenders.

Alignment: Dark knights tend to be lawful and follow their own moral code, or the moral codes of others before them. Dark Knights sometimes become chaotic and those that do are often called "executioners".

Religion: Dark Knights follow overlords like many others, but mostly Dark Knights seem to worship armor smithing it's self as it is a huge portion of their creation.

Other Classes:  Dark Knights often find themselves at odds with more chaotic creatures and classes, but team up with Paladins quite often.

Techniques (Su) Just like all classes, Dark Knights gain access to special techniques they can utilize to aid them in battle or day to day activities. At each level they gain 1 technique of any level they can perform.

At the levels designated, Dark Knights also gain special Monster Techniques they can utilize to get an edge over their opponents. A Dark Knight Learns a monster technique at 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th, and 20th level. These Techniques can be chosen from the Dark Knight's list of techniques highlighted with two (**).

The Dark Knight must be able to perform techniques of the technique's level to learn it. There are many cases where monsters do not have enough techniques for every technique slot they have access to, in those cases the Dark Knight can

select a normal technique in place of a monster Technique.

A Dark Knight's relevant ability score modifier is it's Strength.

Ability Boost Dark Knights are Strong, Wise, and Charismatic as such they gain bonuses to Strength, Wisdom, and Charisma. Dark Knights gain Ability buffs at levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14.

Natural armor (Ex) Dark Knights have very thick armored hide, as such they gain Natural armor as indicated on the table above.

Element Resistance (Ex) Dark Knights are in tune with the burning furnace within themselves, as such they gain resistance to fire as indicated on the table above eventually obtaining full immunity at 10th level.

Damage Reduction Dark Knights have nearly impenetrable armor suits reinforced with steel and souls. Dark Knights gain Damage Reduction overcome by Adamantine as listed on the table above.

Fighter's Spirit:

A Dark Knight is treated as a fighter of it's dark knight level for the purpose of selecting feats that require it to be a fighter.

Challenge (Ex) At 5th level, Once per day, a Dark Knight can challenge a foe to combat. As a swift action, the Dark Knight chooses one target within sight to challenge. The Dark Knight’s melee attacks deal extra damage whenever the attacks are made against the target of his challenge. This extra damage is equal to the Dark Knight’s level. The Dark Knight can use this ability once per day at 5th level, plus one additional time per day for every three levels beyond 5th, to a maximum of six times per day at 20th level.

Challenging a foe requires much of the Dark Knight’s concentration. The Dark Knight takes a –2 penalty to his Armor Class, except against attacks made by the target of his challenge.

The challenge remains in effect until the target is dead or unconscious or until the combat ends.

Bonus Feats

At levels 5,9,13,16, and 19 you gain a bonus feat that can be selected from the list of Combat Feats.

Executioner (Su) A Dark Knight whom has reached 20th level is at the paragon of it's race. Once per day as a standard action the Dark Knight can enter the Executioner's Stance. While in this stance the Executioner's weapon's critical range increases by 1 point (added after abilities such as improved critical) and the critical multiplier increases by one step (X2 becomes X3). All critical hits the Dark Knight makes are automatically confirmed and deal 1 additional constitution damage. Creatures striking the Dark Knight with a melee weapon while in this stance take 3d6 fire damage. This stance lasts for a number of rounds equal to the Dark Knight's level.
