Aura Warrior[edit]

Aura Warriors have existed long before written history was a thing. Legends have it that the first Lucario (the majority of aura warriors) was made due to an extremely high concentration of aura somewhere around the Sinnoh mountains, and that's why they tend to live around that spot. Other races can still be an aura warrior, but it takes even more intense focus and training than the natural-born aura users that Lucario are.

Intro to the Aura Warrior[edit]

You run on respect, trust, and honor. Justice is your calling, and you aren't afraid to lay down your life to save lives.

Aura warriors rely on their aura to do most of their work, so they don't usually specialize in weapons. Their power comes from the aura force, connected to the users' emotions and ideals. They want the greater good.

As an aura warrior, you can just imagine someone took a monk and made it a sorcerer, and added a barbarian into the mix. To use your aura, you don't use spell casting, but you use Aura Points (AP). To gain unique moves and abilities, you just simply level up.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

When you are not wearing armor and are not using a shield, your AC is 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Charisma modifier.

Aura Proficiency[edit]

Charisma is your modifier for your aura abilities, since your connection to Aura relies on the strength of your personality. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for an ability calls for one and when making an attack roll with one.

Aura save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier (Unless specified otherwise)

Aura attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + you Charisma modifier (Unless specified otherwise)

Short Rest AP recovery[edit]

When you take a short rest, you regain a number of aura points equal to one quarter of your total hit dice.

You recover all your aura points when you take a long rest.

Simple Abilities[edit]

Simple abilities are abilities that every subclass has access to. They either cost no, or very few Aura Points to use, but aren’t that powerful. However, you can choose to boost their damage by spending some Aura Points.

The full Simple Ability table can be found at Simple Abilities List

Aura Points[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you gain access to Aura Points. Aura points are similar to Ki as you don't technically need said points to play the class, but not using them would be widely regarded as a bad move. Spending Aura Points on a Feature or an Attack costs an action, unless otherwise stated. Not only does it grant you access to specific subclass abilities (See: Paths of the Aura Warrior), they allow for some pretty nice damage boosts, even on your Simple Abilities

Mega Evolution[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you gain the ability to Mega Evolve.

As you let the Aura around you flow throughout your body, and power every fiber of your being, you take on a different form. A Stronger form. A Faster form. A more... Perfect form.

Once per long rest, you can spend an action to Mega Evolve into a more powerful form for one minute. Throughout the duration, you gain a series of buffs as shown in the chart below, and you gain advantage on Charisma and Dexterity checks. This does not apply to saving throws or attack rolls.

Level Added Damage Die AC Boost Movement Time
2 +1 +1 +20 Move, +10 Jump One Minute
9 +1 +1 +20 Move, +10 Jump One Minute
13 +2 +1 +20 Move, +10 Jump One Minute
17 +2 +2 +20 Move, +20 Jump Untill you choose to end it, or you fall unconcious.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Starting at 6th Level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on Your Turn.


Aura Immersion[edit]

Starting at level 18, you gain the ability Aura Immersion.

You've done what every aura user strives to do throughout their life. You have become fully immersed in your aura. Aura isn't something you use anymore. It becomes an essential part of you, and you become an essential part of it.

You can no longer die of old age, and you can choose to substitute Strength checks for Charisma checks. This does not apply to Saving Throws or Attack Rolls.


Aura Master[edit]

At level 20, your Charisma and Dexterity both increase by 2, raising their maximum scores to 22.

At 3rd level, you choose either the Way of the Spiritual Warrior, the Way of the Martial Warrior, or the Way of the Veil Warrior. Each of these subclasses has their own attacks and abilities attached to them. They may be stronger than the Simple Abilities, but they cost more AP than them as well.
