Simple Class Templates

There are sometimes when I hate adding class levels to monsters just to gain a desired effect so I've been plugging away quietly as working up some simple template to take the place of adding class levels. It goes something like this:

Champion Creature (CR +1)
Creatures with the champion template are divine warriors who strike out at the machinations of opposing religions.

Rebuild Rules: Auragain a good, evil, lawful or chaotic aura appropriate to your selected god. AC+2 to natural armor; Special attack +1 to attack and damage rolls against opponents whose alignment is opposite your aura. This bonus increase to +2 at 5 HD, +3 at 10 HD, and +4 at 15 HD.; Skills +4 Knowledge (religion), +4 to Diplomacy or Intimidate; Ability Scores +4 Str, +2 Con, +4 Cha, Int minimum 6; Languages Common

So a owlbear champion would look something like this.
