So do you guys use any Oaths or prayers or chants or whatever in any of your games, if so what are they - The Paladin Oath of lawful goodness, the Knights Oath to be chivalrous, the Necromancers chant to rise the dead etc etc?
Besides the Knights Oath from Dragonheart I've never heard a cool oath.
>A knight is sworn to valor.
>His heart knows only virtue.
>His blade defends the helpless.
>His might upholds the weak.
>His word speaks only truth.
>His wrath undoes the wicked.
I find it works best when the oath is also tied to "use your fucking brain, tho". This prevents going full lawful stupid while still representing the ideals.
Copied this in a .txt from a post some anon made here couple of weeks ago.
>Honesty. Don't lie or cheat. Let your word beyour promise.
>Courage. Never fear to act, though caution is wise.
>Compassion. Aid others, protect the weak, and punish those who threaten them. Show mercy to your foes, but temper it with wisdom.
>Honor. Treat others with fairness, and let your honorable deeds be an example to them. Do as much good as possible while causing the least amount of harm.
>Duty. Be responsible for your actions and their consequences, protect those entrusted to your care, and obey those who have just authority over you
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!
Heh. My Barbarian has a call-and-response with his horde. If you remember your Arnie movies, you know the rest of this one. He yells, "Warriors! What is best in life?!"
Blade with whom i have lived,
Blade with whom i now die...
Never had the chance to use it yet, no bloody games
As a bard for one of my first games, the dm asked me to come up with small stories to tell the party or to tell a crowd when I used perform.
I did have a list of like ten or so, but they all were on an old computer I no longer own. I need to come up with more.
