Default Professional Template: 300 Spartans: Leonidas

In the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, which template would be best to represent a character like Leonidas from the movie, 300?

Barbarian, knight or even swashbuckler could all be built to do it. Knight is probably easiest.

Thanks, Zuljita.

I was thinking that the heavily armored idea, along with the preference for heavy weapons, of the knight ran a little contrary to the seemingly lightly armored Spartans of the movie. Otherwise, I think it works great.

The armor thing is mostly flavor. Just don't take armor mastery use the broadsword and shield combo and you'll be pretty close .

Remember that while you can’t fudge your plate armor’s weight and every opponent will be able to tell its base DR, you can have it *look* like a leather belt with a large buckle, a single shin protector and a pair of shoulder pads.

That's an interesting idea, ArchonShiva.

I don't know if the others I plan to play DFRPG with would let me get away with that, without it being some sort of magic item. But that is a really great idea.
