Classes

 

 

The 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons rules have retained the core classes that players have become familiar with over the past 30+ decades. The basic concepts of each class are there, with some interesting twists and additions that I really like, such as archetypes.

 

I've created this page to not only add stuff to each class that I think is necessary, but to make changes to existing material that may be required. I always try to be logical in what I'm adding or changing, and I don't make changes just for the sake of it. That kind of thinking drives me nuts.

 

What I'll do is list each class and whatever changes or additions I've made (if any) to make it easy for you to understand. I will also use this page to add any *new* classes that I approve of in my world. Since this is a new rules system for DnD, I'm not going to spend a lot of time creating new stuff until I've had a chance to nail down the current rules.

 

* = new stuff

***NOTE*** You can find new spells and reworked old spells on the Spells Page

 

Archetypes

Archetypes is a new feature that I like. It allows variance within classes to give them flavor. Currently, I allow all that are listed in the PH. The potential for flavor is great here, but so is the possibility that things can get out of hand. I'll be looking very closely at any archetype submissions while seeking group input. A good place to get ideas about archetypes that have already been suggested by players on another site, check out En World.

For submissions, try to refer to current archetypes listed in the PH as a guideline for what's acceptable. I'll always be using the PH as an anchor to keep things balanced.

*Added the Oathbreaker Paladin description from page 97 of the DMG. Click HERE.

*New monk archetype (or Monastic Tradition in this case) called "Way of Balance" has been added to the monks section.

*New fighter archetype called "Knight" has been added to the fighter's section.

*New druid archetype called "Circle of the Fountain has been added to the druid's section.

Beast Scions

 

Beast Scions are loosely related to druids in that they have a profound respect for nature and the beasts that live in it. Scions respect all beasts and work tirelessly to ensure they are protected from the evils and perversions of a world made dangerous for them man and other similiar creatures.

 

A critical aspect of any scion is their overwhelming urge to eradicate the perversions of nature. The most prominent perversion is lycanthropy. The unnatural curse distorts and warps those afflicted with it, and scions do everything in their power to cure those who are. Those whom a scion cannot cure, they destroy.

 

Being restless souls, scions usually avoid staying in one place for too long, choosing to roam the land in search of knowlege and perversions to eradicate. They are also solitary when it comes to dealing with others of their kind. In some cases, though, they will gather in cooperation to face a greater threat to the land and the beasts within it.

 

Class Features

 

As a scion, you gain the following features.

 

Hit Dice: 1d8 per scion level.

Hit Points at 1st Level: 8 + your constitution modifier.

Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your constitution modifier per scion level after 1st.

 

Proficiencies

 

Armor: Light armor (not of metal)

Weapons: Shaktine*, darts, javelins, and slings

 

*Shaktine is a holy weapon used exclusively by scions. These bracers have dagger-length blades secreted in the top (over the arm) and can be extended when the scion depresses a small button. There is one for each arm, and the scion attacks with both (2 attacks) in the same round without any penalties. The damage is the same as a dagger (1d4 piercing; finesse; light; cannot be thrown).

 

At 1st level, the scion has blessed his shaktine so that they can affect lycanthropes as if they are silvered weapons. On a successful hit against a lycanthrope, the scion adds an additional d4 per 5 levels. So a scion of level 1-5 that hits a werewolf with one attack will add an aditional d4. At level 6-10 add 2d4. At level 11-14 add 3d4. At level 16-20 add 4d4. So a 20th level scion who hits twice (both hands) will roll 6d4 (for 3 blades on each hand) and add 8d4 (4d4 for each hand) for a total of 14d8 rolled for damage.

 

At 5th level, the scion learns to bless his blades so that they are now considered +1 magical weapons. Also, another blade is added to the bracer on each arm so that when the weapon is employed, there are 2 blades on each arm with each blade doing dagger damage (4d4).

 

At 6th level, the scion gains 1d4 additional damage per hit vs. lycanthropes.

 

At 11th level, the scion gains 1d4 additional damage per hit vs. lycanthropes.

 

At 12th level, the scion blesses his shaktine further so that they are now considered +2 magical weapons. Also, another blade is added to the bracer on each arm so that when the weapon is employed, there are 3 blades on each arm with each blade doing dagger damage (6d4). Three blades per hand is the maximum.

 

At 16th level, the scion gains 1d4 additional damage per hit vs. lycanthropes.

 

At 20th level, the scion blesses his shaktine to the point of making them +3 magical weapons, which is the maximum.

 

Saving Throws: Intelligence, Wisdom

 

Skills: Choose three from arcana, animal handling, insight, medicine, nature, perception, religion, and survival

 

Order of the Scion

Scions who are at least 15 years of age (or the equivalent in races with varying ages of adulthood) are taken in by their local order. The master scions there help their acolytes understand their strange affinity with nature and the beasts within it. They prepare their newfound students with the knowlege necessary for them to survive in a world where they can sometimes be feared and attacked for their strange abilities.

 

Once a scion departs the order to begin their quest for knowlege and wisdom, they only rarely go back unless it is to gain insight about something they can't decipher or if the order calls them back to advise them of something quite important.

 

Awareness (Scionic/Lycanthropic)

 

Also at 1st level, scions known when a scion or lycanthrope is within 10' of them. The scion or lycanthrope can be noticed whether the scion is in their natural or beast form, and whether the lycanthrope is in their natural or altered form. This ability increases as the scion progresses in level. Tthe distance of awareness increases to 30' at 3rd level, 60' at 5th, 90' at 8th, 120' at 12th, and 150' at 16th.

 

Spellcasting

 

The spellcasting rules for scions are that same for that of druids (page 66 PH) with the exception of number of spell slots. See the table below. This includes preparing and casting of spells, the save DC, and ritual casting.

Animal Language

 

At 2nd level, a scion may speak 2 animal languages of his choice. The conversation is clear and both can understand each other using the the chosen animal's method of communication, such as grunts, chirps, whistles, growls, etc. The scion learns an additional language at levels 6, 10, 14, and 18.

 

Animal Friendship

 

At 2nd level, the scion can cause beasts to recognize him as a friend. The ability is as the animal friendship spell on page 212 of the PH, but doesn't use a spell slot. With this ability, the scion can affect one more animal at level 4, 6, 9, 13, and 17.

 

Wild Shape

 

At 2nd level, the scion has the ability to use the wild shape ability as described on page 66 of the PH. They gave the same improvements at levels 4, 8, 10, 14, and 18. See the revised table below

Disease Resistance

 

At 3rd level, a scion's knowledge of nature and his own strong health allow him an advantage against becoming infected with a disease. If a scion is exposed to a disease (natural or magical) by attack or other means which requires a save, he gains a +2 on his constitution save. The bonus increases by 2 at levels 7 and 11.

 

Lesser Restoration

 

At 3rd level, a scion can cure disease as if by a lesser restoration spell. This is a class ability and doesn't use one of the scion's spell slots. He can use this ability once per day plus one additional time per 4 levels above 3rd. So an 11th level scion can use this ability 3 times per day. Once the alottment is used, the scion must perform a long rest.

Ability Score Improvement (or alternate feat gain)

At levels 4, 8, 12, 16, and 19, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2 or two ability scores by 1 with a limitation of 20 on any ability. Alternately, you can choose one feat in place of the 2 point ability score increase at each appropriate level.

Reversion

 

At 7th level, a scion's blessed blades have the ability to cause a lycanthrope to revert back to its natural state. Each successful hit by a shaktine causes the lycanthrope to revert on a failed DC 13 wisdom roll. The DC goes up by 1 at levels 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19 for a maximum of DC 19. If successful, the reversion lasts for 1 minute before the lycanthrope can turn back into its savage alter ego.

 

Speed Increase

 

At 7th level, the scion's base move rate increases by 10' and another 10' at 14th and 20th level.

 

Lycanthropy Resistance

 

At 9th level, a scion's tireless study in the art of defeating lycanthropy allows him resistance to the curse itself. A scion who receives a wound by a lycanthrope gains an additional +2 to their saving throw to resist it. The scion gains an addition +2 to their save at levels 13 and 15.

 

Dominate Beast

 

At 10th level, a scion can dominte a beast as per the spell on page 235 of the PH. The duration is 5 minutes plus 5 per level after 10th.

 

Invisibility to Beasts

 

At 14th level, scions can blend into their environments so well that beasts cannot see, smell or hear them. This effect can be employed 3 times per day for 10 minutes per use. After the final use, the scion must employ a long rest.

 

Lycanthropy Immunity

 

At 17th level, a scion's knowledge of lycanthropy is so thorough, he can resist the effects altogether if injured by a lycanthrope.

Clerics

Here I wanted to flesh out the domains for clerics. I've added a lot more than you'll find in the PH for use in my game. For now, these are all I'll allow until further notice.

Domains are a great idea that allows clerics to gain spells based upon what philosophies their gods represent. Spells can be granted based upon war, nature, water, magic, and many others. The domains listed in the PH are a great start. Irith has varied pantheons of gods that grant domain spells to their clerics. If you're playing a cleric, we can check current resources to find the domain spells you receive.

If there isn't one for that particular god, we can use simple logic an good group discussion to figure out what will be allowed. Bring on the discussion! As for now, you can reference the table below to see what's allowed and what I intend to create moving foward. (TBD) means "to be determined." All others are in the PH under the "Clerics" section.

Myths of a mystical fountain where anti-aging water flows have filled tomes for centuries. The Circle of the Fountain is rumored to have partaken in the waters which enhance their healing magic.

Monks

 

Way of Balance (used by monks of Gharan-Dis only)

 

Your goal is to learn about true balance while honing your body, your mind, and your spirit. To become a monk, you must study as an initiate until you are at the age of manhood (usually 17 years). At that time, you commune with Gharan-Dis, which is called a “Trial.” If He deems you fit to become a Walker of the Light, He will brand the inside of your right forearm with a white eye. At this point, you leave the monastery where you have trained and strike out into the world to learn everything you can about the concept of good from any perspective you can. This doesn’t mean that you have to “be” good, merely study and understand it. This can take months, even years, to accomplish (levels 1-5).

 

Once you reach level 6, or when you have gathered the insight you feel qualifies you to understand what good is, you return to your monastery and commune with Gharan-Dis once more. If He feels you’ve mastered the concept of good, then he brands the inside of your left forearm with a black eye, signifying that you have become a Stalker of the Night. The difference now when you leave, is that you’re learning everything you can about the concept of evil in the world. This is a difficult time for the monk, for being exposed to the temptations of evil usually causes most monks to forget their monastic vows and turn to the path of evil and self-indulgence.

 

Those who maintain their discipline (level 13) return for a final Trial to determine if you’re fit to become a master. If so, you’ll be branded in the center of your chest with a gray eye, signifying balance. Masters are considered to be ready to know balance, having grasped good and evil. They strike out once more to put their knowledge of balance to good use by doing all they can to maintain it wherever they see an imbalance. Once they’ve reached 20th level, they return to their monastery to teach unless something dire or pressing keeps them away.

 

Walker of the Light (level 1-5)

Power of Light: At 3rd level, you can use your ki to duplicate the effects of certain spells. As an action, you can spend 2 ki points to cast aid, lesser restoration, prayer of healing, and zone of truth without providing material components. Additionally, you gain the light cantrip if you don’t already know it.

 

Stalker of the Night (level 6-12)

Shadow Step: At 6th level, you gain the ability to step from one shadow into another. When you are in dim light or darkness, as a bonus action, you can teleport up to 60’ to an unoccupied space you can see that is also in dim light or darkness. You then have advantage on the first melee attack you make before the end of your turn.

 

Shield of Night: At 11th level, you have learned to utilize the darkness as protection. When you are in dim light or darkness, you can use your action to weave yourself through the shadows to make yourself harder to see, and therefore harder to hit. During this time, your gain a +4 advantage to your dexterity, and, in turn, your AC. The effect lasts until you attack, cast a spell, or move into an area of bright light. At 15th level, the bonus increases to +6, and at 20th level, +8.

 

Master (level 13-20)

Ki Strike: At level 17, your mastery of your ki has increased so that you can use it to lash out at opponents like a weapon. As an action, you can spend 3 ki points and lash out with a single melee weapon attack. Your ki will resemble a shimmering whip of bluish light that snaps out up to 15’. If you successfully hit your opponent, he will take 2d10+your level points of necrotic damage and must make a DC 14 constitution save or be stunned for 1 minute.

Paladins

The Oathbreaker (as per page 97 of the 5th edition DM's Guide)

An Oathbreaker is a paladin who breaks his or her sacred oaths to pursue some dark ambition or serve an evil power. Whatever light burned in the paladin's heart has been extinguished. Only darkness remains. A paladin must be evil and at least 3rd level to become an Oathbreaker. The paladin replaces the features specific to his or her Sacred Oath with Oathbreaker features.

Oathbreaker Spells

An oathbreaker paladin loses previously gained oath spells and instead gains the following Oathbreaker spells at the paladin levels listed.

 

Paladin Level 1st Spell 2nd Spell
1st Hellish Rebuke Inflict Wounds
3rd Crown of Madness Darkness
5th Animate Dead Bestow Curse
7th Blight Confusion
9th Contagion Dominate Person

Channel Divinity

An Oathbreaker Paladin of 3rd level or higher gains the following two Channel Divinity options:

Control Undead: As an action the paladin targets one undead creature he or she can see within 30' of hem or her. The target must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, the target must obey the paladin's commands for the next 24 hours, or until the paladin uses the Channel Divinity option again. An undead whose challenge rating is equal to or greater than the paladin's level is immune to this effect.

Dreadful Aspect: As an action, the paladin channels the darkest emotions and focuses them into a burst of magical menace. Each creature of the paladin's choice within 30 feet of the paladin must make a Wisdom saving throw if it can see the paladin. On a failed save, the target is frightened of the paladin for 1 minute. If a creature frightened by this effect ends its turn more than 30 feet away from the paladin, it can attempt another Wisdom saving throw to end the effect on it.

Aura of Hate

Starting at 7th level, the paladin, as well any fiends and undead within 10 feet of the paladin, gains a bonus to melee weapon damage rolls equal to the paladin's Charisma modifier (minimum of +1). A creature can benefit from this feature from only one paladin at a time.

At 18th level, the range of this aura increases to 30 feet.

Supernatural Resistance

At 15th level, the paladin gains resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical weapons.

Dread Lord

At 20th-level, the paladin can, as an action, surround himself or herself with an aura of gloom that lasts for 1
minute. The aura reduces any bright light in a 30-foot radius around the paladin to dim light. Whenever an enemy that is frightened by the paladin starts its turn in the aura, it takes 4d10 psychic damage. Additionally, the paladin and creatures he or she chooses in the aura are draped in deeper shadow. Creatures that rely on sight have disadvantage on attack rolls against creatures draped in this shadow.

While the aura lasts, the paladin can use a bonus action on his or her turn to cause the shadows in the aura to attack one creature. The paladin makes a melee spell attack against the target. If the attack hits, the target takes necrotic damage equal to 3d10+the paladin's Charisma modifier.

After activating the aura, the paladin can't do so again until he or she finishes a long rest.

In order to guarantee that the wizard has some offense and defense and not leave him wimpy because of bad rolls for starting spells, I have created the following table to use in determining starting 1st level spells. Cantrips are something you as a player can pick and choose on your own. Also, I will be sure that the amount of spells that a wizard has is at least twice the amount he/she can have (not including bonus spells for higher intelligence).
