Knight of the Crown prestige class for 5e D&D

Wizards of the Coast has posted new Unearthed Arcana rules on prestige classes for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. In the spirit of that optional ruleset, I present to you my Knight of the Crown prestige class.

This is still very much a draft, so I’m unsure if providing proficiency in all armor and shields is too strong. I’m also unsure whether it should be a requirement that one must have a level of the Knight of the Crown prestige class to become a member of the Knight of the Sword prestige class (in the novels, one advanced from Crown to Sword, then finally Rose).

What do you all think?

Honor and Sacrifice

It’s sad sometimes that in a fair plurality of the conversations I have with friends and acquaintances how often the subject of honor and integrity pops up, the tenets and personal code that people possess and are guided by. What’s sad is how many of these same people I talk to have to sacrifice their honor and integrity to keep their jobs. Oftentimes they feel they cannot say what they truly think or feel. 

The Knights of Solamnia are a fictional organization in the fantasy world of Dragonlance whose motto is: My Honor is my Life. Perhaps it’s only in fantasy worlds where one can say and do what’s true in your heart and mind. Perhaps it’s just a sad statement of the current trends in societal interaction. Perhaps I’ve not had my cup of coffee yet and am just rambling. 

May we all be like the Knights of Solamnia!
