Bane of Heretics!
The Templar is a fighter/paladin build, invested in combat prowess more than the other facets of a paladin's abilities. Able to shine as well as a fighter in combat, but still possessing the resistances of a paladin, the Templar is a force to be reckoned with in battle. Find out to how to make one with Darkgolem's new custom build: The Templar!
By the same token, Templar's are still knights of a religious order, and do not give up much.. some casting ability, but keeping the high saves and durability that a paladin has.
