Any creature touched by flame takes 10 ongoing fire damage for 3 turns.

Rebirth-If you are killed and Final Act was used then you can be reborn from your god if you succeed on a DC 30 Will+Religion check. If reborn you are born into the same square and are surrounded by flame, at 0 hp but recovering and gain immunity to fire for 3 turns.

This kind of build is one based on power surges and fending off the enemy for combat advantage.You intent should be long battle looking for key strikes on your enemy.

Shadow Hunter OVERVIEW[edit]

Characteristics: Shadow Hunters use dark power but are balanced in there style they take light to form darkness and require equal trade for there materials. They are much like hired guns but far more deadly and more random in power. A Shadow hunter could be weak if not trained well, but strong if well trained.

Religion: Those who are Embodiments can struggle to grasp that they must have a deity that is of darkness, so very likely they will be evil or chaotic, but others can be other alignments however, they still must not go against there alignments or they will be destroyed by their god as a shadow hunter should be.

Races: Races in tune with magic and arcana are great, stealthy ones as well, but also just straight up tanks work well too. Any race as long as you can work with its strengths and weaknesses.

Creating a Shadow Hunter[edit]

A Shadow Hunter a very effective upfront fighter makes a great tank and off defender if its speed is kept up. They will hit and dodge a lot of attacks but are very capable of blocking attacks and taking the hits of them. They make for great controllers and healers as well as long as you stick to being behind the lines and not being so tanked up. They are powerful and strong but they only need one bad move to blow they whole thing up.
