About Ox

background:
Rallen Nowicki or Ox as most call him is a fairly good humored, well natured and noble individual. He is stalwart in his loyalty to the house he serves, he is dedicated to his service to the Lodovka's and has been since he was six and realized that was where he was bound to serve anyhow. When it comes to duty it comes first and always does, luckily for him He has been assigned to his favorite Lodovka, Kalsgrim! no offense to the rest of the house of course. but Kalsgrim knew how to fight, how to charm and was just easy to get along with. and he got to go with his older brother Garick! Making the Trio, up of his three favorite people in the whole wide world.

growing up:
In the service of the Lodovka's Ox had started out wanting to follow his brother in the hunt, but Ox's sheer size saw to it that he was trained with blade and on horse back, a sword lord recognized his size and talent with a blade and his ease with a mount to be things that were easily desirable in a squire and soon he took him under his wing. Anytime he was in the Keep, Sir Ression was there he checked on Ox and would attempt to talk the Lodovka's out of his service and into a squire for himself, but Kalsgirm's mother always talked his father into turning him down, the boy was near the age of their own and would make a hearty defender for their son. and so the tutelage of Sir Ression, was never to be, but the kinship was there and so the old sword lord, gave him advice and instruction when the House guard would let him.

description:
Ox fits his nick name very well,both in strength and service. He stands at a intimidating six foot, ten, a foot over his older brother, His build is muscled from years of training and physical effort, he was never one to slack and his inhuman strength is the harvest of a lot of hard work sewn. His hair is always kept a long and he keeps side burns and is letting his beard grow out now that they are on the plains, perhaps he is taking the symbol of his order a bit to seriously. his hair is a dark brown along with wood colored eyes, his skin is tanned from a life time of days in the sun.

abilities:
  • Once per day, a cavalier can challenge a foe to combat. As a swift action, the cavalier chooses one target within sight to challenge. The cavalier’s melee attacks deal extra damage whenever the attacks are made against the target of his challenge. This extra damage is equal to the cavalier’s level. The cavalier can use this ability once per day at 1st level, plus one additional time per day for every three levels beyond 1st, to a maximum of seven times per day at 19th level.

    Challenging a foe requires much of the cavalier’s Concentration. The cavalier takes a –2 penalty to his Armor Class, except against attacks made by the target of his challenge.

    The challenge remains in effect until the target is dead or unconscious or until the combat ends. Each cavalier’s challenge also includes another effect which is listed in the section describing the cavalier’s order.

  • Challenge of the lion: Whenever an order of
    the lion cavalier issues a challenge,
    he receives a +1 dodge bonus to his AC
    against attacks made by the target of his
    challenge. This bonus increases by +1 for
    every four levels the cavalier possesses.

  • Tactician (Ex): At 1st level, a cavalier
    receives a teamwork feat as a bonus feat.
    He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. A s
    a standard action, the cavalier can grant this feat
    to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear
    him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3
    rounds plus 1 round for every two levels the
    cavalier possesses. The cavalier can use this
    ability once per day at 1st level, plus one
    additional time per day at 5th level and
    for every 5 levels thereafter.

  • Lion’s Call (Ex): At 2nd level, an order of the lion cavalier
    gains the ability to rally his allies. As a standard action,
    he can give an encouraging speech which grants all
    allies within 60 feet a competence bonus on their saving
    throws against fear equal to his Charisma modifier and
    a +1 competence bonus on attack rolls for a number of
    rounds equal to his cavalier level. If an ally within range
    is under the effect of a spell or ability that causes him
    to be frightened or panicked, he can immediately make
    another saving throw to resist the effect (if allowed).

Feat:
  • Feats

  • Mounted Combat (Combat)
    You are adept at guiding your mount through combat.
    • Benefit: Once per round when your mount is hit in combat, you may attempt a Ride check (as an immediate action) to negate the hit. The hit is negated if your Ride check result is greater than the opponent's attack roll.

  • Ride-by Attack (Combat)
    While mounted and charging, you can move, strike at a foe, and then continue moving.
    Benefit: When you are mounted and use the charge action, you may move and attack as if with a standard charge and then move again (continuing the straight line of the charge). Your total movement for the round can't exceed double your mounted speed. You and your mount do not provoke an attack of opportunity from the opponent that you attack.

  • tactician feat:Precise Strike (Combat, Teamwork)
    You are skilled at striking where it counts, as long as an
    ally distracts your foe.
    Prerequisites: Dex 13, base attack bonus +1.
    Benefit: Whenever you and an ally who also has this
    feat are flanking the same creature, you deal an
    additional 1d6 points of precision damage with each
    successful melee attack. This bonus damage stacks with
    other sources of precision damage, such as sneak attack.
    This bonus damage is not multiplied on a critical hit.

    ~~As a standard action, the cavalier can grant this feat
    to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear
    him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3
    rounds plus 1 round for every two levels the
    cavalier possesses. The cavalier can use this
    ability once per day at 1st level, plus one
    additional time per day at 5th level and
    for every 5 levels thereafter.~~


traits:
  • Sword Scion: You have lived all your life in and around
    the city of Restov, growing up on tales of Baron Sirian
    Aldori and the exploits of your home city’s heroic and
    legendary swordlords. Perhaps one of your family members
    was an Aldori swordlord, you have a contact among their
    members, or you have dreamed since childhood of joining.
    Regardless, you idolize the heroes, styles, and philosophies
    of the Aldori and have sought to mimic their vaunted art.
    Before you can petition to join their ranks, however, you
    feel that you must test your mettle. Joining an expedition
    into the Stolen Lands seems like a perfect way to improve
    your skills and begin a legend comparable to that of Baron
    Aldori. You begin play with a longsword or Aldori dueling
    sword and gain a +1 trait bonus on all attacks and combat
    maneuvers made with such weapons.
  • Fencer: You trained long hours as a youth with blades,
    either taking lessons in the genteel art of fencing from
    tutors paid for by your parents or by being taken under
    the wing of a disenfranchised fencer who may have
    turned to a life of crime. You gain a +1 trait bonus on
    attacks of opportunity made with daggers, swords, and
    similar bladed weapons.

Each cavalier’s challenge also includes another effect which is listed in the section describing the cavalier’s order.

    Challenge(Order of the Lion)
    Whenever an order of the lion cavalier issues a challenge, he receives a +1 Dodge bonus to his AC against attacks made by the target of his challenge. This bonus increases by +1 for every four levels the cavalier possesses.

  • mount----A cavalier gains the service of a loyal and trusty steed to carry him into battle. This mount functions as a druid’s animal companion, using the cavalier’s level as his effective druid level. The creature must be one that he is capable of riding and is suitable as a mount. A Medium cavalier can select a camel or a horse. A Small cavalier can select a pony or wolf, but can also select a boar or a dog if he is at least 4th level. The GM might approve other animals as suitable mounts.

    A cavalier does not take an armor check penalty on Ride checks while riding his mount. The mount is always considered combat trained and begins play with Light Armor Proficiency as a bonus feat. A cavalier’s mount does not gain the share spells special ability. A cavalier’s bond with his mount is strong, with the pair learning to anticipate each other’s moods and moves. Should a cavalier’s mount die, the cavalier may find another mount to serve him after 1 week of mourning. This new mount does not gain the link, evasion, devotion, or improved evasion special abilities until the next time the cavalier gains a level.

  • order At 1st level, a cavalier must pledge himself to a specific order. The order grants the cavalier a number of bonuses, class skills, and special abilities. In addition, each order includes a number of edicts that the cavalier must follow. If he violates any of these edicts, he loses all benefits gained from his order for 24 hours. The violation of an edict is subject to GM interpretation. A cavalier cannot change his order without undertaking a lengthy process to dedicate himself to a new cause. When this choice is made, he immediately loses all of the benefits from his old order. He must then follow the edicts of his new order for one entire level without gaining any benefits from that order. Once accomplished, he gains all of the bonuses from his new order. Note that the names of these orders might vary depending upon the campaign setting.
  • Order of the Lion
    A cavalier who belongs to this order has pledged himself to a sovereign; be it a king, queen, or even the local warlord. Cavaliers of this order are stalwart and dedicated to their cause, willing to go any length to ensure the safety of their lord and his domain.

    Edicts

    The cavalier must protect the life and lands of his sovereign at all costs. He must obey the commands of his sovereign without question. He must strive to expand the power and prestige of his realm.
