Heroic allies and antagonists are built the same way as heroic player characters. Challenge Rating
: A heroic supporting character has a Challenge Rating
equal to his or her character level.
Heroic supporting characters gain maximum hit points
at 1st level, just as heroic player characters do.
Heroic supporting characters gain action points
. However, few of them have the maximum number of action points
for their level (because they will have spent some of them). Assume that a heroic supporting character has a number of action points
remaining equal to one-half his or her class level.
Heroic supporting characters gain all the class features
(talents and bonus feats
) available to the six basic heroic classes.
Access to Advanced Classes:
Supporting characters with levels in one or more heroic basic classes can take levels in an advanced class
, provided they meet the prerequisites for that class.
