Path of the Valkyrie

The field of battle provides the truest test of one’s mettle. This is hallowed ground, ground sanctified by the blood of brave warriors, and it is here the valkyrie feels truly alive. Life becomes most precious in those moments where it stands at greatest risk, and it is in those moments where mortals truly earn their right to breathe air another day. The valkyrie seeks to slay the champions of their enemy, while at the same time providing aid to their allies. In the event a comrade should fall, the valkyrie serves as witness to their heroism in those final moments.

Vanquish Foe

At 3rd level, when you rage you gain the power to inflict your deity’s wrath against your enemies. As a bonus action, select one target you can see. For the duration of your rage, your weapon attacks against that target gain advantage. In addition, double your rage damage bonus on weapon attacks against the subject of your vanquish foe power. Your attacks against that creature are considered magical.

You lose these bonuses when your rage ends, or when your chosen foe drops to 0 hit points or falls unconscious. You regain this ability following a long rest. You gain an additional use of vanquish foe at 6th, 12th, and 17th levels.

Fearless Presence

Starting at 6th level, you become immune to fear, magical or otherwise. In addition, each ally within 10 feet that can see you gains advantage on saving throws against fear effects. This ability functions only while you remain conscious.

Spirit of Battle

When you reach 10th level, you gain the ability to summon a sleipnir—a flying, eight-legged steed—to serve as a mount for one hour. You regain the use of this power following a long rest. You gain an additional use of this power at 17th level. Use the statistics for the pegasus for this mount.

Death-Bringer

At 14th level, the target of your vanquish foe power cannot regenerate hit points any round in which you inflict damage against it. In addition, if the target creature is protected by death ward and you deliver the damage that drops it to 0 hit points, the death ward immediately ends, providing the creature no protection.

Once you slay this foe, it cannot be brought back via raise dead, reincarnate, or revivify; only resurrection or wish can restore the creature to life.
