ABOUT

Oath angels are scholars who keep the records of the oathbound. As angels that represent the sacred nature of oaths and of the truth, they sanction agreements, bless the oathbound, hunt oath breakers, and try to stand in the way of fiends deceiving mortals through unholy contracts.

Oath angels like to wander the realms of mortals as old wizards. They wear dark blue robes and carry silver spears, which they use as valuable walking staves.

Divine Creation. An oath angel is an angel and doesn’t require food, drink, or sleep.

Oath Keepers. All oath angels carry a parchment, on which the oaths they sanctioned are written in Celestial. When an oath must remain a secret, it is written in Sacred Language (p. 23). The length of the parchment changes from oath angel to oath angel, in accordance with the number of oaths written on it.

Variants

There are some rumors about the existence of elderly oath angels, whose parchments are said to fill entire buildings.

Sanctioned Oaths. When an oath is sanctioned by an oath angel, the creature who took the oath gains the Oathbound (p. 97) feat.

Scholarly Angel. An oath angel has a book on its person at all times. The book contains prayers in Celestial, from which the angel channels its powers. When an oath angel dies, the book is left behind. Each of its pages can be used as a spell scroll of a spell that the oath angel could cast (1 scroll for each spell).
