From publisher blurb:
The Shield Warden is a home brew class for use in Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition. It is professionally illustrated and laid out on 13 pages. It has been play tested by multiple DMs and is ready for broader release!
The Shield Warden is the ultimate defender. They are known for their ability to summon a spirit shield which can transform into different shapes as needed to suit the changing tides of battle. Far beyond a vanilla fighter with defensive feats, the shield warden is built to provide protection and support for their allies using the strength of their will. In addition to physical defense, the shield warden uses their shield form abilities to make special attacks, use shield energy to protect the party, and much more. At level 20, the Shield Warden transforms into the ultimate Avatar of Defense, granting the Shield Warden unique powers for a limited period of time.
Some cool stuff about the Shield Warden:
- Shield Wardens select a new shield form at level 3, 6, 10, 14. 12 different shield forms allow for a variety of customization.
Shield forms offer both a passive trait (like immunity to ranged attacks), and an ability (give a character a resistance bonus)
- Shield Wardens have a similar point system to monks, allowing them to use their will for special moves.
- Cool ideas for RP, such as a backstory that values protecting others (or oneself), using the shield forms you've selected to define who you are as a character, more supportive of pacifist play, etc. Or maybe you just like bashing people's faces with a shield! That works too!
