Devoted Hoplite – Paladin Archetype
Deity Restrictions: Gods of Traedorn
Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Devoted Hoplites are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light and medium armor, and with shields (except tower shields).
Unified Faith(Su): Once per day a Devoted Hoplite can inspire his allies to triumph over evil. As a swift action, the Devoted Hoplite choses one target within sight to smite, if the target is evil, the Devoted Hoplite and all of his allies get a sacred bonus to attack and damage rolls against the target equal to the Devoted Hoplite’s charisma modifier. If the target of smite evil is an outsider with the evil subtype, an evil-aligned dragon, or an undead creature, the bonus to damage on the first successful attack increases to 1 points of damage per level the devoted hoplite possesses. Regardless of the target, Unified Faith attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. The Unified Faith effect remains until the target of the smite is dead or the next time the devoted hoplite rests and regains his uses of this ability.
At 4th level, and at every three levels thereafter, the Devoted Hoplite may use Unified Faith one additional time per day, as indicated on Table: Paladin, to a maximum of seven times per day at 19th level. This ability modifies smite evil.
Phalanx Training(Ex): At 3rd level, when a Devoted Hoplite wields a shield, he can use any polearm or spear of his size as a one-handed weapon. This ability replaces aura of courage
