The Chosen of Adabar
As the Judge of the Gods, Abadar selects his chosen very carefully and they must be of only lawful neutral alignment. A chosen of Abadar retains all special qualities of the character and gain the following.
Summon mount (Sp): are allowed as per Paladin of equal level. This allows a chosen to gain the service of an unusually intelligent, strong, and loyal steed to serve. This mount is usually a giant eagle, hippogriff, or griffon, although more mundane mounts are allowed. This mount functions as a druid’s animal companion, using the chosen’s level as the effective druid level. Chosen’s mount have an Intelligence of at least 6.
Once per day, as a full-round action, a chosen may magically call the mount to their side. This ability is the equivalent of a spell of a level equal to one-third the chosen’s level. The mount immediately appears adjacent to the chosen. A chosen can use this ability once per day at 5th level, and one additional time per day for every 4 levels thereafter, for a total of four times per day at 17th level.
At 11th level, the mount gains the celestial creature advanced simple template and becomes a magical beast for the purposes of determining which spells affect it.
At 15th level, a chosen’s mount gains spell resistance equal to the chosen’s level + 11.
Should the chosen’s mount die, the chosen may not summon another mount for 30 days or until they gain a level, whichever comes first. During this 30-day period, the chosen takes a –1 penalty on attack and weapon damage rolls.
Gavel of the Lawgiver (Sp): This ability allows the chosen to cast spiritual weapon as a caster of equal level.
Keys of Vault Master (Sp): This ability allows the chosen to cast knock, detect secret doors, detect traps at the caster level of the characters level.
Word of Recall (Sp): The chosen can prepare the word of recall as a caster of equal level to return them to the designated sanctuary of the temple of their home city.
