Hybrid Elite Warrior

Balance Point: Rogue Tier, 3 of 4

Hybrid Elites are half mortal, half green magic. At some point early in their life a Hybrid Elite is infused with strong amounts of arcane energy. This painful infusion of potent magic can show physically in many ways such as scars or strange green eyes. The powerful energies that now course through their body grant them unnatural feats of strength. Hybrids can move quickly in the heaviest armor and preform long acrobatic leaps. They favor using large two-handed weapons to maximize their crushing power. Their physical frames also hide a great deal of their prowess and they often look no different from any other athletic member of their native race.

No two Hybrids are alike and each possesses a different set of talents and skills. Even so, they can almost always be found serving in military duties around the world. They enjoy serving, protecting, and they always give merit to becoming a hero. Of course, there are always a few black sheep. They are the exception, not the rule. Good or bad, law or chaos, they fight for their dreams and their honor.

Making a Hybrid Elite Warrior

Developed to make potent use of all things Strength a Hybrid becomes exponentially more powerful as they progress in levels. When working with a party it is important to remember that Hybrids do not possess the many feats and options of a fighter. They don't shield others well, command ground, use trip attacks, or do karate. They kill monsters. However, this simplified approach can make them a good option for first time players. Hybrid Elites always use common sense, leverage, and a collected mind to solve conflicts.

Hybrids have only one primary ability and can select six of their class skills. This being the case, it is always recommended to have a higher Constitution score than your subsequent Intelligence score. Hybrids are warriors first and craftsman last, so keep those hit points high.
