Character Thursday- Generic Knight Progression

Today I’m going to try something new. Rather than build a specific character this week with backstory and all, I’m going to define a template for NPCs across various levels. This week, the template is for a mounted combatant, or knight, beginning as a mounted fighter and becoming a paladin in time.

This template results in a combatant who at all levels is a skilled mounted combatant. He is equally skilled with all weapons, preferring a lance for charging, but using a sword and kicks when charging isn’t a possibility. When dismounted, he is much less capable, but he is extremely difficult to dismount. He can take a lot of hits and can deal major damage.
