Something new this time, a new Paladin Oath. The group I am running through Hoard of the Dragon Queen made it to 3rd level, and the Paladin in the group (a tiefling – awesome) selected an Oath. I hadn’t really looked at the Oaths, but was a little disappointed that there are only three.
You can guess what is next.
Creating an Oath was a lot harder than the Cleric Domains. I felt like I had to create a lot more story and examples, while still keeping things generic. So spells and abilities like a domain, but also the background and motivation.
I was also disappointed to see that there was nothing about a failed Oath (possibility I missed it is great).
I want to try a couple more of these, which will probably lead to modification of this one. So much of this is guessing because I haven’t played a high level character.
So here is my first Oath. Moved to the DMs Guild. It is pay what you want so still available for free.
