  • Radiant Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) radiant damage.
  • Mark of Honor. The angel of honor chooses a creature within 30 feet and marks it. A celestial mark appears right above the head of the creature, glowing with a bright yellow light. The creature is marked for 3 turns. An angel of honor never marks a creature that is not evil or that is not dishonorable. The angel of honor deals an extra die of damage with its swords against creatures marked in this way. If a creature is marked by the angel(s) of honor 3 times, the mark stays indefinitely, or until it atones for its sins.


Angels of Honor are the embodiment of honor. Although all angels can be considered honorable, these angels directly represent heavenly honor: The duels observed by them are considered holier, creatures in their presence tend to act more honorably, and every honorable act executed near them is filled with divine determination.

Companion of the Honorable. An angel of honor helps those devoted to honor, try to warn the honorable against the possible suffering caused by dishonorable acts, and even try to prevent them.

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

Unnatural Swords. An angel of honor always carries two shortswords; one of glass, forged from the air of heaven, and the other of pure light, forged from the light of heaven. Unless the angel wills them to stay and be used by others, its swords are destroyed upon its death.

A dishonorable creature who tries to wield the glass sword of an angel of honor cannot move it regardless of how strong it is, since honor is an especially heavy burden to carry. No evil creature can interact with the radiant sword, as it appears as a hue of light to everyone but true believers, who are the only ones that can see the true nature of heavenly light.
