You are one of the few who escaped the destruction of your home. Now, forced to fight for survival in an ever-changing world, you must gather the deadliest of allies, amass fame and fortune, and seal your place in history. This is the story of how the world changed forever. The legend of your Rise to Power begins now.
This is a prologue saved game, with a regular warrior Garrett Hawke (vanilla face). He's wearing the Champion's Armor and wielding the Champion's Blade, both of which will grow in power as the player progresses (sort of like Fadeshear).
The armor is the *warrior* version, but I've tweaked it to look like the *mage* one (much cooler, IMO, especially the hood!), and the 2H sword, being really crappy ('cause it was from the fake intro battle), has been buffed a bit to make up for it (don't worry, nothing overpowered).
I actually made this for myself, because I hated looking at an ugly mish-mash of items while leveling (who wants to wait until Act 3 for the whole set?!), and wanted armor and a weapon that would last me throughout the game. Thankfully, with a few tweaks, both the Champion's Armor and Blade now level with Garrett, and will provide good protection and offense without being totally uber.
The items are a tad more powerful than what you'd expect of the gear of same level, but I've balanced it by taking out the rune slots from the armor, and by stripping away attack bonuses from the sword.
The armor itself still grants very nice bonuses which scale with Garrett's level, and the sword, apart from ignoring enemy armor, has 3 rune slots for you to play with.
There shouldn't be any problems with the save, but if there are, please let me know.
