Legion of Steel Prestige Class Variant Progressions
D&D 3e (3.0/3.5) Rules
The Legion of Steel prestige classes presented in Age of Mortals add some great flavor to the Dragonlance setting, but have proven a bit difficult to qualify for. For each of the three, you must have at least one level of Steel Legionnaire.
By the time that a character can achieve a level of any of these classes, they are typically around 7th – 8th level. This is, in my opinion, too high considering that it should be easier to become a Legionnaire than to join the Knights of Solamnia. It's also detrimental to mystics and sorcerers who must sacrifice a spellcaster level in order to qualify for Legion Mystic or Legion Sorcerer respectfully.
Therefore, I've created these variant progressions for the Legion Mystic, Legion Scout, and Legion Sorcerer. In essence, these variant progression charts takes the abilities of the Steel Legionnaire and mixes them in with the abilities of the other three classes.
For the purposes of this article, it is assumed that only the requirements of the Legion prestige classes in Age of Mortals are necessary, minus the Legion Knowledge ability which is now a class ability. The Dungeon Master may rule that the Steel Legionnaire requirements should also be in place. If that is the case, then please see my Combined Legion of Steel Prestige Class Requirements article.
