Spellcasting[edit]

Drawing on the very essence of the magic around you, you have learned to harness this energy to cast spells. See below for the battle mage spell list.

Cantrips[edit]

At 1st level, you know one cantrip of your choice from the battle mage spell list. You learn additional battle mage cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Battle Mage table. When you level up as a battle mage, you can replace one cantrip you know with another one on the battle mage spell list.

Preparing and Casting Spells[edit]

The Battle Mage table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your battle mage spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these battle mage spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

  You prepare the list of battle mage spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the battle mage spell list. When you do so, choose a number of battle mage spells equal to your Intelligence modifier + your battle mage level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
  You can also change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of battle mage spells requires time spent honing your connection to your gauntlet: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability[edit]

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your battle mage spells, since your magic draws upon your knowledge of the magical energies around you. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a battle mage spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

        ;Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier
        ;Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Ritual Casting[edit]

You can cast a battle mage spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell prepared.

Spellcasting Focus[edit]

You use your magical gauntlet as a spellcasting focus for your battle mage spells.

Mage Gauntlet[edit]

At 1st level, you chose a gauntlet. Choose between Frostborn, Conduit, Pyromancer, Toxicologist, Stoneshaper, and Tempest, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st level, and again at levels 7, 11, 15, and 19.

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.

Battle Mage Gauntlets[edit]

Frostborn[edit]

A Frostborn battle mage uses the frost element through their gauntlet, putting accuracy and precision above speed and agility in combat. <!-For subclasses introduce this class option here->

Ice Lance

<!-Class feature game rule information-> Your magical gauntlet is imbued with the frost element. You can concentrate on it to prepare a powerful spell. You can cast ice knife without using a spell slot, and instead using 2 mana charges. For each round that you concentrate on the spell, it takes 1 extra mana charge. Refer to the table below for damage dealt depending on mana charges used.

<thead> </thead> <tbody> </tbody>
Rounds Concentrated Mana Charges Used Damage Dealt
0 2 1d4 piercing, 0 cold
