Overlord of War
(This class was modified from a class I had located online. If you know whom the original poster of the class is, please point me towards them so I can give proper credit)

Alignment: Any

Hit Die: d10


To qualify to become a Overlord of War, a character must fulfill all the following criteria.

Race: any

Base Attack Bonus: +10

Skills: Intimidate 10 ranks

Feats: Leadership, Deva, or Aura of the King ability of Omega Sentinel or Gideon/Divine Majin

Special: To become an Overlord is a very difficult task. There are several ways to obtain the power however, so if one way isn't right for you, try the other options, a true overlord would take the easiest way out anyway....


* If you are born into noble lineage and inherit the title of overlord from a parent or relative when they pass away. This is possibly the easiest way to become an overlord, but also very difficult as only a select few will be from noble lineage.


* Invade another netherworld and destroy, or capture the overlord. By the law of... well.. violence, This will entitle you to the netherworld and anything in it.


*You can also challenge the overlord to battle, However it is required to be on Live television and to have an expensive corporate sponsorship.....


*Simply being overly badass... if one just oozes badassery, they can almost instantly become an overlord....

The effects of damage however will effect them once the duration is over. Activating this is an instant action. This can only be chosen at level 5.

Greater Vassal: Your Cohort from leadership can now be one level lower than you. This stacks with other abilities that are similar. If you take this Overlord's Crest a second time, you gain another Cohort, however it's level is determined by normal Leadership rules.

Greater Deva: When a creature is effected by your Deva ability, you can choose to effect them with a confusion spell instead of the fear effect. Alternatively you can choose to make the fear effect last for minutes instead of rounds. In addition, when using the Order's Wrath effect, you can select a single alignment when selecting this ability. Creatures of that alignment are treated as Chaotic outsiders for this.

Greater Laugh: The Morale Bonus to attack rolls increases by +1 and the creatures also gain a +1 bonus to armor class and a +1 to saving throws when using your Overlord's Laugh. These bonuses increase by +1 at 5th level.

While within your realm, you gain a +2 bonus to all d20 rolls, and once per day you can reroll any d20 roll. This can be done even after hearing the results of the first, however the second roll must be kept.

Greater Netherrealm: You must possess Improved Netherrealm to select this. Select a single Cleric Domain. To determine your level as a cleric for the purpose of using your domain abilities, you use twice your levels in Overlord of War, Overlord of Magic, Demon General, Gideon/Divine Majin, Omega Sentinel, Shura, Vampire Tyrant, or Werewolf Lord to a max of 20th level. These abilities use Charisma instead of Wisdom, and you add the spells to your list of techniques known. This domain must match your character, and must have some sort of theme. This domain can only be used while you are within your domain or within your Netherworld.

Smite Alignment: Once per day you can smite a creature of an opposing alignment. This alignment must be decided when you take this ability.

Creatures within 120 feet that can hear the Overlord are effected by any of his abilities that usually require you to be within 60 feet. In addition, his allies gain a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls for 1 round per Overlord of War Level.

Aura of Power (Su): An Overlord exudes extreme power and makes his foes feel worthless. The Overlord of War instills a -1 penalty to attack and damage rolls to all enemies within 30 feet. This stacks with any penalties it receives from being an Omega Sentinel.

Aura of Debilitation (Su): The Overlord of War is a master of combat and all who stand against him are struck with intense fear. The Aura of the King ability now causes them to be shaken for 2d4+2 rounds, and if they do not succeed in a saving throw DC 15+ your Overlord of War level+ your constitution modifier, you are effected by a Greater bestow Curse spell.
