Sentinel

Postby Super Saiyan Musashi » Tuesday March 3rd, 2015 5:23pm

My idea was inspired by Final Fantasy 13. The stats:

Sentinel

You are the Sentinel, a durable soldier who brings rock-solid defense to the team. While you have a little bit of talent for defeating enemies, your real strength is in withstanding heavy punishment from the enemy and keeping that heat off of your allies.

Starting Weapon: Short Sword, 2 Attack Dice
Defend Dice: 2
Body: 8
Mind: 2
Movement: 2 d6

Sentinel cannot use Range weapons or 2-Handed Weapons (in the original system this includes Staff, Crossbow, and Battle Axe)

Sentinel can wear any armor (including Plate Mail) without movement penalty.

Sentinel has 3 Spells (or abilities to be treated like spells for the purpose of gameplay):

Obstruct: Enemies cannot move past squares adjacent to the Sentinel, though they may still stop in those spaces or move around them. Wears off when the Sentinel can no longer see an enemy

Provoke: For 1 round, any enemy that can attack the Sentinel must do so, and cannot attack the Sentinel's allies until it becomes impossible to attack the Sentinel. Enemies capable of spells can only cast spells that directly affect the Sentinel. They may use spells affecting other heroes, provided the spell affects the Sentinel as well.

Aura of Toughness: For 1 round, all allies the Sentinel can see (including self) get 1 extra combat die when Defending.

Removing the third ability is a must, otherwise the Sentinel is very OP, and think about limiting her to only one ability + improved movement with plate (maybe restrict plate to one dice but allow sentinel to roll 2 and choose the best).

Obviously the 3 abilities are like a school of spells. That makes him a spellcaster like the Elf. So it’s Attack 2, Defence 2, Body 6, Mind 4. Because of the restriction about ranged weapons, you can decrease the Mind to 3 and increase the Body to 7. So, he is like the Dwarf:
Attack 2, Defence 2, Body 7, Mind 3.

If you add the ability to remove penalty for plate mail this will give him Elf’s stats again.

This is how I could accept that kind of hero in my games. Of course it’s just my opinion.

The spells are nice. I could allow the +1 Def for one round, it’s not a big deal.

Hero Quest doesn't have facing for figures. Won't the Sentinel always see any adjacent enemy as there is direct line of sight to all adjacent squares? I'm not including spell effects such as Cloak of Shadows or Invisibility in this observation.

This ability makes more sense if you read it as a spell-like effect; i.e. "use once per Quest" rather than "always active".

As in, all 3 spells/spell-like abilities are available, but to use one of them means the Sentinel has to discard the other 2? Or has to choose which 1 of the 3 to pack in each Quest? I could see that working if having a school of 3 spells like the Elf would be considered a bit much for the Sentinel. Of course, like any fan-made content, GMs are free to adjust it.

And yes, as mentioned, Obstruct is a Spell, going into effect when cast and wearing off when no visible enemies remain just like the Courage Spell.

Good feedback guys.

Pardon the bump, but I added some pictures for the Sentinel's spell cards! Made using pictures stolen off the internet. They''re in the OP.

Edit: We're limited to 5 pictures per post so I'll offer a Card Front here. Since the class is based on a Final Fantasy 13 role, I used Fang for the female version. Still deciding on a picture for the male version.
