Introducing a New Guild Class #8: The Samurai!

13 Dec

For January’s Guild Tournament, you will be able to try out the 10 extra Pathfinder base classes for the first time! Every couple of days here on the website, I will introduce the Alchemist, Cavalier, Gunslinger, Inquisitor, Magus, Ninja, Oracle, Samurai, Summoner, and Witch!

The Samuraininja

Few warriors are more dedicated to honor and the code of the warrior than the samurai. Trained from an early age in the art of war and sworn to the service of a lord, the samurai holds a position of power and respect in many lands, often serving as the voice and justice of the local noble. The samurai takes on his training with zeal, learning the way of the blade (typically a katana), the bow, and the horse. Some even learn how to effectively use firearms, if they are available. The samurai is often the most trusted soldier in his lord’s employ. In him, the common folk see honor and sacrifice. He is an honorable warrior, dedicated to the realm and the leaders that guide it.

Role: While typically sworn to the service of a lord, a samurai is usually given free reign as to how he performs that service. As such, samurai can sometimes be found with other adventurers, taking the fight to the enemies of their masters. Other samurai become ronin, striving to serve an ideal without paying fealty to a lord. In either case, samurai make powerful allies, capable of withstanding nearly any harm while dispatching their foes with deadly precision.

Note: The samurai is an alternate class for the cavalier base class.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Die: d10.

Starting Wealth 3d6 × 10 gp (average 105gp.) In addition, each character begins play with an outfit worth 10 gp or less.
