Today (one day late, once again), I present to you the Oath of the Dragon. I had fun designing this paladin oath, and I had two issues in mind:
- I wanted to convey «Dragon» without giving the paladin a Channel Divinity that would be a dragon breath. That was easy enough, I gave them instead either a mini-wing buffet or a frightening presence (same CD than Conquest).
- I wanted the Oath to have slight variations for each Dragon’s color (with two main variations: Chromatic, and Metallic).
The second point presents the disadvantage of presentation, I might try to think of a layout that conveys the separate colors in a way that’s easy to parse. However I feel the archetype is perfectly readable.
Remember, I try to over-tune slightly my archetypes, so keep that in mind if you worry about balance.
