EZG reviews Prestigious Roles: Centurion
This pdf is 5 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look at this PrC!
The pdf provides us with the Centurion-PrC (The centurion just needs to have led a unit to victory, have a teamwork-feat and some moderate requirements), who gets d10, 4+Int skills per level, full BAB, medium fort and will-saves, and a teamwork-feat every odd level.
The revised centurion gets access to solo tactics and a command radius that starts at 20 ft and expands over the 10 levels to 60 ft. The allies inside this radius may benefit from his team tactician ability – granting all allies in the radius access to one of his teamwork feats for class level rounds or until he issues a new teamwork feat. This increases to 2 and 3 teamwork feats at levels 4 and 8 of the PrC respectively. At 5th level, in yet another rather cool ability, he may shape the radius of his aura to a cone or line, which is actually a rather neat idea! The capstone lets him choose an ally’s initiative and allows him and allies in his aura to act normally in a surprise round.
Editing and formatting are very good, I didn’t notice any significant glitches. Layout adheres to a relatively printer-friendly two-column standard and the pdf comes with some nice stock art. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length.
The Centurion is a solid, nice little PrC that should especially in the context of war-themed adventuring find its niche and makes for a solid choice – while I’d rather urge you to check out the Supporting Roles-installment that also features the Commander-base-class, this is still a good purchase on its own and thus gets a final verdict of a solid 4 stars.
