For the monster of the same name, see chaos knight.

Chaos Knight is a class in ADOM, that first appeared in v. 1.2.0. Chaos Knights are the sturdiest and perhaps strongest of all classes, and deadly in melee combat from the onset. The problem is, unlike the other adventurers that come to Ancardia to find fame as heroes, Chaos Knights arrive as villains... meaning that they won't be welcomed by many NPCs in the game.

Chaos Knights begin the game very chaotic, regardless of starting race. Most NPCs will refuse to talk to the PC whilst they are chaotic, meaning that some quests will be unavailable and some obstacles harder to overcome. Chaos Knights can find redemption from their ways, though, by converting to another alignment; this requires a lot of lawful acts and/or small sacrifices. NPCs will interact with the PC as normal if not chaotic; although Chaos Knights that have deserted their cause will suffer from other penalties. See Class Abilities for more details.

On the positive side Chaos Knights start out with extremely high PV, are very strong and tough, and are eligible for some extremely powerful crowning gifts. Other than that, life is far from easy for Chaos Knights.

There is a special ending that is only available to Chaos Knights.

Basic Information[править | править исходный текст]

Manual description[править | править исходный текст]

Chaos knights are the dark war leaders of the legions of Chaos. Former members of the common races they have fallen to the lure of Chaos, having become corrupted and tempted. Now they serve as might warriors and brutal fighters on the war-torn battlefields of Ancardia. Clad in mighty armors, wielding brutal weapons they slay their foes left and right and cherish the brutal massacres in which they partake. They are lost to Law and Balance and their only aspiration is to become the mightiest warriors of Chaos, potentially usurping their leaders and toppling their reign to instill an even more brutal regime.

Base/Typical Stats[править | править исходный текст]

Chaos Knights' starting stats vary considerably, depending on what corruptions they start with.

All Chaos Knights receive huge boosts to Strength -- with a guaranteed starting score of about 17 just to carry their equipment (perhaps lower for mist elves) -- and Toughness; as well as extreme penalties to Charisma and Appearance.

Class Abilities[править | править исходный текст]

  • Whilst chaotic, NPCs will not interact with the PC in the usual way. This includes the following effects:
    • Neither Thrundarr nor anybody in Terinyo will give quests. This includes the portal quest -- meaning that the PC must pull the portal lever themself by taking Thrundarr away from it.

  • Whilst neutral, Chaos Knights that have abandoned their initial Cause will receive the following penalties:

    • Inability to benefit from any class powers
    • -2 to every stat.

  • Whilst Lawful, you get further penalties: 
    • A further -2 to every stat.

  • Heir gift: chaotic mithril battle axe of slaughtering.

Class Powers[править | править исходный текст]
