The Broken Skies
For better or worse, the power of God now lies in the hands of mankind in the form of the Sephira. Humans and their transformed kin built great temples around these fragments of the Divine, both as a place to study them and to protect them from harm. The guardians of these temples are the Templar, the strong right hand of the Temple Exarchs.
Occasionally the need arises for a Templar to venture forth. When he goes, he brings with him the power of the Sephiric domain he serves.
While the Templar are neither zealots nor missionaries, they must serve their Sephiric domain in mind and body.
Roll: The Templar’s role is much the same as a Paladins: Warrior-Support, a good secondary healer and lending bonuses to their allies while providing a good tank
Alignment: Any, but certain Sephira may require certain alignments
Hit Die: d10
The templar’s class skills are Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Knowledge (nobility) (Int), Knowledge (religion) (Int), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Sense Motive (Wis), and Spellcraft (Int).
