Order of the Wychblade

A wychfiend cavalier who belongs to this order has learned to use the mystical energies of the Ethereal Plane to further the will of the Wychqueen or his appointed liege without question. Cavaliers of this order tend to be strong, fanatical, loyal to a fault, and willing to carry out the dictates of his liege without question, even t the death. This order complements the Wyching Knight racial archetype.

Edicts: The cavalier must prove his strength and dedication to his liege at every opportunity, and seek retribution against any foe that challenges the authority or disobeys the commands of his liege. If he encounters a foe seemingly more powerful than himself, he must attempt to defeat them, even to the death should the need arise. 

Challenge: Whenever a cavalier of the order of the wychblade issues a challenge against a creature that has opposed his authority or that of his liege, he receives a +1 morale bonus on all attack damage rolls made against the target of his challenge. This bonus increases by +1 for every four levels the cavalier possesses.  

Skills: An order of the wychblade cavalier adds Knowledge (engineering) (Int) and Knowledge *planes) (Int) to his list of class skills. In addition, an order of the wychblade cavalier adds his Charisma modifier (if positive) to any Will saves he makes against compulsion spells and effects.

Order Abilities: A cavalier that belongs to the order of the wychblade gains the following abilities as he increases in level. 

By My Sword (Ex)

At 2nd level, the cavalier must select one opponent. As long as he is engaged in direct combat against that opponent, he receives a +2 morale bonus to one saving throw of his choice.

Threat of Force (Ex)

At 8th level, whenever the cavalier threatens a space occupied by an enemy spellcaster, the spellcaster must add 4 to the DC of any concentration checks, dispel checks, or caster level checks she attempts.

Destroy the Foe (Ex)

At 15th level, the cavalier can take retribution on those who dare to oppose or strike against the authority of his liege. Whenever an enemy makes a successful melee attack against the cavalier, the enemy provokes an attack of opportunity from the cavalier. The cavalier receives a +2 morale bonus on the attack of opportunity. If the attack made by the enemy was a critical hit, the cavalier may treat the enemy as the target of his challenge for the attack of opportunity. The cavalier can use this ability once per round.
