About

There is perhaps nothing more anathematic to peace than an antipaladin. Dedicated holy warriors to the darkest and foulest of deities, antipaladins work to fulfill the vile wishes of their evil masters. The zeal with which they implement the plans of dark gods makes them truly fearsome foes for anyone allied with the forces of good.

Antipaladins are the polar opposite of paladins: chaotic evil warriors devoted to destruction. Much like champions of good, they must follow a code. Their code exhorts evil and prohibits selfless acts. Antipaladins often serve demon lords. Many antipaladins used to be champions of good and seek to destroy their former faiths.

Touch of Corruption Focus 3

Uncommon Necromancy Negative

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range touch; Targets 1 willing undead creature or 1 living creature

The antipaladin infuses the target with negative energy. If the target is living, this deals 3d6 negative damage (basic Fortitude save); on a failed saving throw, the target also takes a –2 status penalty to AC for 1 round. If the target is a willing undead creature, the target regains 18 Hit Points, and if it is one of the antipaladin’s allies, it also gains a +2 status bonus to damage rolls for 1 round.
