Game Rule Information

Prime Requisite: A fighter’s prime requisite is Strength; a character must have a STR score of 9 or higher to become a fighter.

Alignment: A fighter may be of any alignment.

Hit Dice: Fighters start with a “hit point kicker” of 6 hp and gain 1d8 hit points + CON mod per class level.

Combat Ability: A fighter has a good Base Attack Bonus progression. Fighters are proficient with all low-tech weapons, and with all armour and shields (including tower shields). Although fighters do not have magic spells or special skills, their armour and weapons can compensate.

Saving Throws: Fighters have relatively poor saving throws, but gain +2 on saves vs. poison and death effects.

Special Abilities

Weapon Familiarity: Because a fighter gains basic training in all weapon types, he suffers only one-half the usual Tech Level penalty when using high-tech weapons (-1 per Tech Level difference instead of -2).

Fighters also have reduced attack penalties with improvised weapons (-1 instead of -2).

Cleave: When a fighter of 3rd level or higher deals enough damage in melee to make a target drop, he can take an immediate, extra attack with the same weapon against another creature within reach. This ability can be used once per round.

Weapon Specialization: At 6th level, the fighter gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls and +2 to damage with a selected weapon type (such as broad swords or battle axes, for example).

Stronghold: A fighter of 9th level or above can establish a stronghold and attract followers. The referee will provide guidelines for domain-level play.
