Black Guard

Blackguard is a sub-class choice of the Fighter path. A blackguard is the sword to the paladin`s shield, trained extensively in offensive abilities and powers but lacking in the healing and protection skills that are a paladin`s forte. A blackguard can easily be swayed to follow the darker gods, gaining even more power from this servitude, much as a paladin gains power from faith in goodness and light. This sub-class is adjusted to span 60 levels of fun.
