Oldschool Conversion of 4e D&D - The Nemesis

I whipped up an oldschool D&D conversion of the 4e Avenger. No flavour text, but Google and all.

THE NEMESIS (Fighter Subclass)
Requirements: Lawful Alignment; Intelligence and Wisdom of 13, Dexterity of 15
Prime Requisite: Intelligence and Wisdom 15 or greater, +10% experience points
Weapons: All melee, crossbow, javelin and sling.
Armor: No armor or shield
Experience Points: As Paladin
Hit Points: As Fighter
Effective Armor Class as a Monk of the same level.
+1 on all saving throws.
At 3rd level gain the ability to turn and affect undead etc. as a Cleric two levels lower.
Find Traps, Move Silently, Hide in Shadows, Hear Noise and Climb Walls as a Thief of the same level.
Nemesis Oath:
-Once per combat you may select one enemy within 50' to be subject to your Nemesis Oath.
-If the enemy is slain or reduced to 0 hit points you may select another enemy to apply Nemesis Oath upon.
-If you are in melee range of the subject of your Nemesis Oath, and they are the only enemy adjacent to you, you gain a +4 to all melee attack rolls against them.
-If the subject of your Nemesis Oath willingly moves away from you, you gain +2 damage on all attacks against them until the end of your next turn.
-Once per combat you may allow one ally who is within 50' of you to make an attack with +4 on the to hit roll against the subject of your Nemesis Oath. This ability does not refresh if the subject of your Nemesis Oath is killed or reduced to 0 hit points.


  1. Good to see you back!

  2. Great to see some lifesigns of you, Blair! :D

  3. Planet ago is the center of the old school universe

  4. Glad to see you back and posting again! I would hate to see such a great blog go dead. Welcome back!

  5. Interesting. I used the Avenger for old school once too, but less thought out. I made them Clerics who didn't turn undead, could use any weapon, and got a +1 bonus to AC, attack and damage vs. those targets appropriate for their specific cause/mission.

  6. Great article! All the articles you have, they enjoy reading and learning a lot. Your article is very helpful for me. I hope you will continue to write such good articles as well.
