Unearthed Arcana: Cavalier
The premium edition reprint of Unearthed Arcana has been released! To help celebrate the book, we've also run an interview with the book's "Design Consultant" (and industry legend) Jeff Grubb. Plus, in days past we've offered short excerpts for the new classes (and split-class) featured in the book: the barbarian, cavalier, and thief-acrobat.
In fond memory of these classes, we'd also like to offer the following cartoon—today considering the 1st Edition version of the cavalier!
For the cavalier that finally appeared in Unearthed Arcana, the prerequisites were high (and, in fact, started out at 0-level), but the class enjoyed powerful benefits that included expert parrying, the ability to function at negative hit points, and ability score percentiles that increased at each level.
