Flaws

Proud

  • You don't like accepting help from others.
  • If a gift or offer of aid smacks of charity or pity even the slightest bit, you grow indignant and refuse it.
  • Once per game session, the DM or another player can activate your Flaw in order to get you to refuse an offer of aid.

    Qualm: Honorable Challenge

  • You only cross arms with foes who willingly engage you.
  • You suffer a -4 attack penalty on attack rolls against creatures that have not explicitly challenged you or made an attack against you.
  • For the purposes of this flaw, an attack against you includes any action that would end an Invisibility spell.

    Background

    Roryn Rockbottom hails from the mightiest of all dwarf realms, the Great Rift, which is the ancestral homeland of the Gold Dwarves.

    Roryn will offer his prayers to Moradin each morning. Like his patron diety, Roryn is gruff and uncompromising and hard as stone when it comes to protecting his fellow dwarves. He is proud and independent, and as a result will rebuff any overtures of aid if it smacks of charity or pity.

    He is realistic enough to know that not all threats come from outside, and that sometimes you have to be wary of threats from within. He has sometimes become jaded and naturally suspicious of other's motives, since as a Paladin in the order of the Hammer of Moradin, he can see into other's hearts and souls and finds that not everyone meets his standards of justice and honour.

    ("Evil is Everywhere!")

    Honour demands that he face and defeat his foes in a fair fight, so he will not automatically lash out at a typical dwarven enemy (drow, orc, etc…), but will instead allow them the opportunity to prove and, possibly redeem themselves to be something better then most would give them credit for. Most fail, and suffer the consequences.

    ========================================================
    Regional feats = bullheaded, metallurgy, silver palm, sky rider, thunder twin
    - none picked
    
    Moradin (G) LG Craft, Dwarf, Earth, Good, Law, Protection “Soulhammer” (warhammer)
    
    "Hammers of Moradin" The Soul Forger has few Paladins, but the dwarves who choose 
    this path often act as champions of the entire dwarven pantheon, blending the 
    virtues of all the dwarven gods.
    - They may multiclass freely as clerics, fighters, divine champions,
      dwarven defenders and runecasters
    
    
    PHB2 (page 53): Alternative class feature 
    Paladin - Charging Smite 
    - Level = 5th
    - Replaces = if you select this class feature, you do not gain a special mount
    - Benefit = beginning at 5th level, if you smite evil on a charge attack, you 
      deal an extra 2 points of damage per paladin level to any evil creature you 
      hit (in addition to the normal bonus damage dealt by a smite). If the charge 
      attack misses, the smite ability is not considered used. 
      This is a supernatural ability.
