Spellcasting[edit]

An event in your past, or in the life of a parent or ancestor, left an indelible mark on you, infusing you with arcane magic. This font of magic, whatever its origin, fuels your spells.

Cantrips

At 1st level, you know two cantrips of your choice from the beast conjurer spell list. You learn additional beast conjurer cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Beast Conjurer table.

Spell Slots

The Beast Conjurer table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these beast conjurer 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.

For example, if you know the 1st-level spell Burning Hands and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast Burning Hands using either slot.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

You know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the beast conjurer spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Beast Conjurer table shows when you learn more beast conjurer spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For instance, when you reach 3rd level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the beast conjurer spells you know and replace it with another spell from the beast conjurer spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your beast conjurer spells, since the power of your magic relies on your ability to project your will into the world. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a beast conjurer spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spellcasting Focus

You can use an druidic focus as a spellcasting focus for your beast conjurer spells.

Conjure Beasts[edit]

At 1st level, as a bonus action on your turn, you can conjure beasts to fight for you or protect you, in a empty space within 30 feet.

You can have only one conjured beast at a time. If you use this ability to conjure another beast while you have a current one, your current beast vanishes you and is replaced by the new beat.

It acts on your initiative, and you determine its actions, decisions, attitudes, and so on as a bonus action on your turn. If you are incapacitated or absent, the beast only takes the Dodge action.

You can conjure a beast with a CR of 1/8 or lower. The power of the conjured beast increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown on the Conjure CR column on the Beast Conjurer table.

You can use this feature twice, being unable to do it again until you complete a short or a long rest.

Beast Conjurer Paths[edit]

At 2nd level, you choose your Beast Conjurer Path that best fits your play style. Lightning Conjurer or Earth Conjurer, both are detailed at the end of the character description.

You get archetype features at 2nd level, and again 6th, 10th, 14th and 18th levels.

Soul Mates[edit]

At 2nd level, you can bond with one of your summons, creating a powerful link between the two. After an 8 hours ritual, when you summon this particular creature, it is considered a familiar, as in the find familiar spell, receiving all the benefits of the spell.

Deeper connection[edit]

Starting at 3rd level you use your conjured beast as a medium to deliver powerful spells to your enemies. You can cast spells through your conjured beast.

In addition, you now gain the image ability to mentally communicate with your conjured beasts regardless of language, your beasts can understand you and you understand them

Ability Score Increase[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.

Magic Link[edit]

Starting at 10th level, every time you cast a spell targeting yourself while your beast is within 30 feet of you, the beast receive the benefits of the spell.

In addition, you can cast concentration spells while your beast is summoned targeting the beast.

Beast Conjurer Paths[edit]

The transformation lasts for 1 minute, until the beast is incapacitated or until you choose to end it as a bonus action.

On a hit, the beast can automatically use its bonus action to Shove or Grapple the creature.

  • The creature becomes two sizes larger.
  • When the beast hits a creature with an attack, you can use your bonus action to spend one spell slot. When you do so, you can increase the damage dealt by 1d8 per spell slot spent.

You are focused more on your own protection rather than hurting your enemies, and you use the earth around you to do so. You are now able to conjure Constructs into this world. Your otherworldly strength gives you proficiency in medium/heavy armor and martial weapons that have the heavy or two handed feature(shields).
