The extra damage is 2d8 for a 1st-level spell slot, plus 1d8 for each spell level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 5d8. The damage increases by 1d8 if the target is a fiend, to a maximum of 6d8.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The fiend hunter makes two melee weapon attacks.
  • Evil’s Bane (+1 Longsword). Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d8 + 6) slashing damage or 11 (1d10+6) slashing damage if used with two hands. The weapon deals an extra 9 (1d8) psychic damage to evil-aligned creatures on a hit.
  • Resistance Defier (Recharge 6). As an action, the fiend hunter speaks a prayer and is blessed with divine strikes. The hunter’s spells and other magical effects are now stronger. The hunter ignores the effects of the Magic Resistance trait of a fiend of its choice within 60 feet of it for 1 minute.

REACTIONS

ABOUT

Fiend hunters are the most common elite forces of the organization called “Night Hunters”.

They are trained specifically to hunt evil creatures. They are called fiend hunters owing to their ability and proficiency in tracking and hunting down fiends, although they stand against any form of evil.

Only a few possess the rank of fiend hunter since they are both masters of divine spellcasting and the art of war. They are always on the road when they are not in their organization’s bases of operation. They dedicate their lives to helping towns in need, and to fighting monsters; fiends in particular. Although they mostly travel alone, it is possible to come across fiend hunters acting in duos as well.

When fiend hunters visit a town, they are welcome. They are often offered a place to stay until they decide to move on. Those around them love to listen to their exciting stories of fighting fiends, which ensures a crowd around them, especially in taverns.
