"Fabled champions are the heroes whose epic tales are passed down through dozens of generations and shared around campfires, in wayside inns, and in schoolrooms across the lands. These mighty figures loom from the history books, their deeds having shaped the modern world. Some of them have saved civilization from certain destruction. Others have fought righteous wars against the vile races. Still others fought for personal reasons, struggling against ancestral enemies or feuding with a powerful nemesis. The names and deeds of the fabled champions are well known to every child and are favorite subjects of the bards and historians.
Fabled champions are similar to paladins, gaining a Charisma bonus to saving throws and several other similar abilities. However, they do not gain spells or any of the paladin’s divine abilities. Fabled champions gain spell resistance and an intimidating reputation, among other unique powers. Although they are not bound by any particular alignment, fabled champions always fight for a cause, be it religious, political, social, or personal."
