The first of Bahamut's responses to the Spawn of Tiamat, Silverborn Crusaders are the front line of Bahamut's soldiers, and have received his divine blessing.

Strategies and Tactics

Silverborn crusaders usually travel in groups of three or four, as they find safety in numbers as well as strength in unity. They move as quietly as possible, but not attracting attention is difficult for the silverborn crusaders.

Silverborn crusaders will never attack without annoucing their presence first, and will make all attempts to avoid combat both before and during the battle (mostly through using Improved Disarm). However, if presented with a chromatic dragon (or chromatic dragonspawn), the silverborn crusaders will attack without warning and without holding back. They will make every effort to slay the beast, but will withdraw if they are hurt critically and will return later in more numbers.

Society

Silverborn crusaders live alongside silver dragons and most other good dragons without problem, though they do find the methods of copper and brass dragons to be coarse and crude in comparison to their own. Despite this, they find no true fault with the brass or copper dragons (or dragonborn) because they get the job done when needed, despite these differences.

Treasure

Silverborn crusaders have no more possessions than they carry on themselves. Advanced silverborn crusaders may have better equipment, but this is due to them claiming it from a fallen dragon's horde rather than purchasing it themselves. Most valuables they find they either give to charity or to a metallic dragon.

Silverborn Crusaders with Class Levels

Despite their favored class being paladin (and many of the paladin abilities being built into them from birth), silverborn crusader clerics are seen almost as often as silverborn paladins. Rarely, one takes up the ranger or druid mantles.

As an associated class, levels of paladin stack with a silverborn crusader's innate powers. Levels of other classes are nonassociated.
