Has anyone done a conversion of the Ordained Champion PrC from Complete Champion to Pathfinder?
I recently dug out my 3.5 splatbooks and was reading through them again, and ran across this really, really nice PrC.
It looks, at a glance, able to just be directly converted, but then I saw the bit about giving them a Paladin's smite v.s. all alignments, at the cost of one of his daily channels.
Has anyone else looked at this for conversion?
I do like the Ordained Champion, but I think the that the Holy Vindicator was Paizo's attempt at it in Pathfinder. Their concepts are pretty close (use your spells and channel your faith into your weapons). I think the Holy Vindicator is a little more flavored and fleshed out, but it might be what you are looking for. A Channel Smite is an unaligned smite in a way, and the AC can get scary high when you stack Stigmata and Vindicator's Shield (+5 to AC at level 20 all the time, and +15 to AC on the first hit of any encounter).
I think that he should just stick to channelling his spells into his weapon and getting the smites he was already allowed (if I recall right the text said something about a hardcap of 2). A straight conversion should work out fine.
