Pathfinder First Edition content
This article covers a class that is relevant to the Pathfinder campaign setting only in the context of the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

This article is for a First Edition class from the Advanced Class Guide. For the 2e warpriest (cleric sub-class), see Cleric.

Warpriests, like paladins, fight in the name of their god. Unencumbered by the same devotion to law and good, however, they may serve any deity, and their moral code more closely matches the divine power they serve. Much like clerics, warpriests can channel powers from their faith but prefer to apply such powers through deadly use of their weapons in the midst of combat.1

There are no known restrictions on the race of a warpriest.
