I am very interested in hearing about your experiences playing a champion in a campaign.

So lay it on me.

Thank you

I like this class very much. Lot's of flexibility, some free actions and movement. It's somewhat dependent on a good weapons, as you usually need to kill something to generate those valor tokens for you and the group. Not as straight forward powerful as e.g. the knight but very interesting to play.

I enjoy how it becomes a Support Class. Distributing Valor tokens around and boosting your teammates is quite satisfying to me...

Played him with Mordrog in the last HOB campaign.

The skill progression was:
1. Glory of Battle (extra shields)
2. Motivating charge (getting one extra action for 2 fatigue)
3. Stoic resolve (fatigue for spent valor tokens)
4. ???

I really liked him. The combination with Mordrog and Stoic Resolve was very nice because I often had some fatigue to spare for Motivating charge. I liked that.
Many nice rounds with tons of valor for the whole group.
We often used them for shields and I prioritized the character which had a hard time with the trinket. Really adds up over the course of the campaign.
Also liked that you could save up valor for the second encounter which gives a good starting position for the heroes.

Some playing hints:
- keep in mind that valor tokens are spent BEFORE the rolling dice section (so sometimes you spent them with no real benefit)
- use motivating charge on low health monster so you get some valor out for your group.

Overall a fun straight-forward, supportive class to play which is really useful in both acts of the campaign. I would play him the same way again and highly recommend to give this class a shot.

One of my favorite classes. Get all the skills that generate valor tokens first, become the engine of your party.
