Strange New World: Wardens, a class inspired by The Witcher

In celebration of The Witcher series launching on Netflix, I am releasing the LotfP / BX / OSR-compatible Warden class from the Strange New World: Gazetteer in full.

Wardens are very much inspired by The Witcher, they are "Guardians - avowed by oaths, scarred by sacred tattoos and acquiesced by both crowns and religions - who use a narrow form of magic known as signs, against the strange and fearsome horrors of the new world."

  1. This seems interesting, but on-face seems a bit "unbalanced". It seems to be just a better elf. It has all the stats of an elf except attacks as a fighter, which is superior. It doesn't get regular spells, which admittedly in LotFP can be pretty insane (for better and worse), but gets Witcher-style spell signs that are better suited for a gish-y style of play that one usually wants from an elf in the first place.

    Maybe I'm missing something, or in play it works out differently, or it ends up not mattering, that's just my thoughts giving it a once-over.
