Eldritch Warder (Wizard/Paladin)

The eldritch warder is an arcane warrior trained to suppress and penetrate the magical defenses of spellcasters and creatures. By calling upon his deity, the eldritch warder can smite evil spellcasters for their abhorrent behavior, while relying upon his broad knowledge of special wards to lower or pierce an opponent’s spell resistance, diminish its energy resistance, wipe a spell from its memory, or reduce the duration of spells they employ. Though not a front rank combatant, the eldritch warder can greatly increase the chances of defeating enemy spellcasters and magic-using creatures like dragons, demons, and the like.
