CONTROL THE BATTLEFIELD!
You are the keystone of this arch. Without you, the whole thing might fall apart. The front line is breached. The squishes are getting stabbed. Chaos and fear reigns among your allies. With you in the front lines, shield in hand, ready for anything, you can assure victory. You are no simple defender - you are a Guardian, defined by your martial power and your ability to hit as hard or soft as the occasion demands.
This Archetype from the Archives presents the fourth edition guardian fighter build for 5e. It is presented as a character build using existing rules, as a martial archetype for fighters using new Martial Power rules, and as a feat for anyone who wants to dip into martial power. For the DM, magic items are included to support your Guardian, and to offer quests for them.
With this in your hands, you need never fear holding the line again.
