Lone Wolf Multiplayer - Free Download - Vaderish, Knight of the Sword Review

The Vaderish, Knight of the Sword character class isn't available in any book. Instead, it is listed online as a free download. You can find it in Signs and Portents #80 on page 20 - you can get it at

The Vaderish, Knight of the Sword character class is written up in an identical format to the other published character classes. Why do we need another knight character class, especially when there are already TWO in the Heroes of Magnamund rulebook? Well, I suppose the answer would be for variety. They've managed to give all three knight classes very different feels.

One odd thing about this write-up is that it doesn't mention the knight's Faersteed - the special mount that is psychically linked the knight and bonded for life. You have to stumble upon the Faersteed in the Magnamund Bestiary to find out about that. This is, unfortunately, an all-to-typical oversight for LWM.

Overall, the Vaderish, Knight of the Sword is a welcome addition to LWM. With a world as rich as Magnamund, I wish that more character classes would be released. I also wish that "epic" level (level 11-20) disciplines would be released for this character class as it has been for all other good-aligned character classes.

1LR Review: 16 out of 20 - It's a Hit!
