 TACTICS

Before Combat: If Gabranth has a chance to set up, he’ll activate Judge’s Might immediately before combat begins.
During Combat: Gabranth immediately uses Judgment when combat begins, boosting whichever abilities he feels he’s lacking against his foes, and then activates Judge’s Might as soon as possible afterwards. If he has to move during a round or is otherwise limited to a single attack, he combines his weapons together, but otherwise he keeps them separate during combat. He has a small stock of powerful potions in case he needs to heal himself or his allies.

 SPECIAL ABILITIES

Limit Break: Enrage (Su)

3/day while under 50% HP, Judge Gabranth may become enraged as a swift action, increasing his number of attacks. For 3 rounds, when making a full attack, he can make 1 additional attack at his highest BAB, another at -5, and another at -10. These attacks are not doubled by any other effect but otherwise stack with haste and similar effects.

GEAR

Gabranth’s Chaos Blade and Highway Star have a special weapon modification, “judge weapon”, which allows them to be combined into a two-bladed sword or split apart again as a free action. Magical enhancements from each of the individual weapons carry over to the ends of the two-bladed sword, and proficiency with the modified weapon versions of its parts makes him proficient with the two-bladed sword.
