Introduction: The Astral Lord

Aspects_Layer10.gif The Shadow Warrior’s link to the afterlife allows him to call forth his dead comrades in order to fight for him. The warrior who becomes an Astral Lord commands the spirits of the damned, summoning them forth and overseeing the battle from his ranged vantage point. To lead the charge into close combat, the Shadow Warrior must also follow either of the Death Warrior or Malevolent Champion aspects.

Astral Lord Hell Hound

The Hell Hound for the Astral Lord is black as night with angry orange and red patterns breaking through its skin. The Ice and Blood version of this special mount has unique leather armor.

Bonuses and Penalties

Like all special mounts, this Hound gives a large bonus to the rider's hitpoints and defense at the cost of increasing the regeneration penalty of combat arts.

However, this aspect mount gives a special bonus which offsets the regeneration penalty to Astral Lord. Therefore, the Astral Lord will desire this Hound. Combined with the Riding skill, regeneration times for this aspect will eventually be lower when mounted than on foot!

Astral Lord Set: Lucreti's Stars

Lucreti's Stars is a set specially focused on the Astral Lord aspect, giving bonuses to all five combat art levels and their regeneration times. This glowing, magical armor is highly defensive while improving the Shadow Warrior's spellcasting powers.
