Creator Soul[edit]

...and he will stand, bloodied, tired, but fighting still. The glistening skin of otherworldly metal that coats his body will gleam in the glaring sun, ever his enemy. When the great warlord will gaze upon his body, he will see not mortal man, nor woman, or thing. He will see two legs, six arms, and seventeen unblinking red eyes.
—Excerpt from the Prophecy of Hoar’s End.

The robed man outstretches his sword, as it crackles with untold power. As the great golem levels the massive blow with it’s own blade, it is stopped in an instant, as the metal beast tumbles forward due to the instant transfer of energy.

The elf woman lands with glaive in hand, as the warriors already level spears against her. With not a moment to waste, the horrid beast swoops in, sharpened points bouncing off the stone-like feathers. They fight as if they were one, sweeping polearm followed by ravenous bite.

The mundane warrior charges, but did not know his mistake. In an instant, he is impaled upon the two-ton axe, and thrown aside by it’s wielder. The axe-wielding half-dragon performs a backswing, preparing his tool of destruction for another execution. As his assailants launch colossal swarms of magic bolts against him, they bounce off like they were nothing.

Bizarre Magics[edit]

The Creator Souls are a peculiar sort. They are inherently magical, but it does not take the form of the sorcerer’s massive stores of harmful energy, they create but do not have the intricate knowledge of science like the artificer. They, through whatever means, have an almost godlike understanding of the forces of creation, if only a mortal’s tools to use them. Stored within them are four fundamental aspects of the universe, which they can manipulate into powerful tools of war and creatures of myth.

Such powers are beyond legendary. Just about anyone can gain a hold on some form of spellcasting, but to be granted a shard of creation, part of the strongest beings to ever exist? These things are not so simple to acquire. This power cannot just be taught, learned, or studied by mortal means. As such, the appearance of one of these people generally heralds something. Whatever it may be, there is purpose behind their arrival.

To be granted these powers is both a blessing and a curse. Even in super-magical societies, to be uniquely magical in this way is to be alone, misunderstood, or at worst, hunted. As such, these people tend to develop odd mental quirks. Things such as god complexes, loss of some emotion, or a detachment to death are common, but the possibilities for issues are endless. It doesn’t help to see that this power may also directly exasperate them too.

Creating a Creator Soul[edit]

When making a Creator Soul, you should probably ask yourself a few questions. Where does this bizarre power come from? Do you know where it comes from? Was some duty or prophecy set upon you by whatever granted you this power, if something did? What do your creations look like? Do creatures you make tend towards certain personalities or body types? How do you feel about having access to this magic? How do you go about making constructs?

Another important part of making a character like this is having some form of grasp on the creation story of the world this character resides in, as a creator soul your power is gained from these things and are more likely than not effected by it. For example, is the story that the universe/material plane was wrestled from the fiends? Perhaps you tend towards traits like Hatred, do a lot of radiant damage, or use cleric spells. Is there two overgods which built the universe? Maybe you favor dual wielding, using two different weapons which represent the two. Past mechanics, these stories likely also effect the social aspects of your character. Talk to your DM about this before making a creator soul, which could potentially provide more interesting and flavorful ideas.

Quick Build

You can make a creator soul quickly by following these suggestions. First, Wisdom should be your highest ability score, followed by Constitution. Second, choose the Folk Hero background. Third, choose the light crossbow, padded armor, and explorer's pack.

For your two presets, make the first a weapon(flail) with the Manipulated Spirit(Wisdom) and Strike True traits, and your second a creature(Tough).

Creator Soul Powers[edit]

Starting at 1st level, many creator soul features require you to make attack rolls or cause other creatures to make saving throws. To make these attack rolls or cause these saving throws, you may choose an ability score between Wisdom, Charisma, or Intelligence to be your chosen casting ability for your creator soul features. You use this chosen ability score and modifier whenever a feature refers to using any of the attack bonuses or DC's listed below. In addition, your creator soul construct uses its ability score and modifier of your chosen casting ability to determine its attack bonuses and saving throw DCs.

  • Construct Item Attack Bonus = your proficiency bonus + your chosen casting modifier
  • Construct Item DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your chosen casting modifier
  • Construct Creature Attack Bonus = your proficiency bonus + creature’s relevant modifier
  • Construct Creature DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + creature’s relevant modifier

Powers of Creation[edit]

Within you rests the very essence of creation, and the ability to manipulate it. Starting at 1st level, you are capable of creating constructs, items and creatures you can mold to your will, within reason. You have access to four different types of resources, an amount of each listed on the creator soul table. These four resources are Mass, Form, Blood, and Soul. You only have these resources, and they are not regained on rests.

Presets[edit]

You have an amount of preset slots equal to your proficiency bonus, and you start with two presets. These presets cannot use more resources than your total of any type(at 1st level, you cannot make a preset which uses 5 Mass). As part of a long rest, you can conjure or dispel a construct, giving back or consuming the materials used by this preset respectively.

These presets are taken up by things called “constructs”, your creations. To make one, you choose one of the templates below, from which point you can add traits, listed at the bottom of the class. These constructs are considered magical for the purpose of being affected by spells or being destroyed. However, if they are destroyed or die, you must wait 24 hours before manifesting it again.

As downtime, you can spend one week for every resource used in the construct to either remove, edit, or create a new preset. For example, creating an Armor preset takes two weeks, adding 3 Mass and 2 Soul worth of traits takes five weeks, and removing it takes seven weeks.

In addition, changing the subtype takes one week, for example, changing an Armor preset from leather to a chain shirt, or changing a Creature's aspect from Strong to Wise.

Beyond 1st Level[edit]

Whenever you gain a level in the Creator Soul class, you may make, change, or remove one of your presets, without restriction on resources and time, barring the limit on how much a preset takes. For example, when you reach 5th level, you can instantly get rid of an armor preset, give it as many new traits as you want so long as you don’t give it more than three of a single type, or similar such things.

Construct Types[edit]
Weapon
Base Cost: 1 Mass, 1 Form

When you create a weapon, it is a weapon made for your size or one size larger/smaller, and cannot have a damage die higher than 1d8 by any means, unless uncapped. You can choose from the General and Weapons list of traits when making a weapon template or adding to it, and you must be wielding this weapon for any of the traits to function.

Armor
Base Cost: 1 Mass, 1 Form

When you create a set of armor or shield, it is made for your size or one size larger/smaller, and cannot have a base armor class(the AC provided without the Dexterity modifier) higher than 14. You can choose from the General and Armor list of traits when making an armor template, and you must be wearing or holding(for shields) this armor for any of the traits to function.

Creature
Base Cost: 1 Mass, 1 Form, 1 Blood, 1 Soul

When you create a creature, it uses the following template. You must select one of the aspects when creating it. A creature is completely subservient to you, following orders without a thought for question. You can only choose from the Creature list of traits when making or improving a creature template.

Construct Creature
Hitpoints: (6 + Constitution modifier) x creator soul level
Armor Class: 10 + Dexterity modifier
Speed: 30 ft

All Ability Scores are equal to 10

Languages: Every language you know

Standard Attack, Melee Weapon Attack, 5 foot range, +(Strength modifier + your Proficiency bonus) to hit, 1d6 + Strength modifier (damage type of your choice at creation) damage.
Aspects

Higher Calling[edit]

Every creator soul, given time, will develop a certain preference for some constructs. Starting at 2nd level, choose one of the specializations. You gain features from it at 2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th level. Callings are listed at the end of the page.

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 5th level, when you take the attack action, you can make an additional attack as part of that action.

Self Sculpt[edit]

This nigh unlimited power is not limited to just the things you create, as you yourself are moldable. Starting at 14th level, as downtime, you can take a week to shape your appearance. This cannot change any features or give you new ones(your speeds stay the same, you cannot increase ability scores, and other such things), however you can temporarily remove them using this. Otherwise, this new form can be anything you choose, within reason.

Permanence[edit]

Once part of you, you can now separate your constructs from your own body. At 20th level, as downtime, you can spend a month and 1000 GP worth of materials for every Material used in a preset to make them permanent.

A permanent construct is no longer part of you, and as soon as they become permanent you regain all resources used to make it. It simply just exists, now. Any item constructs become magical items which require attunement, attuning to them granting you the benefits of the traits, and a creature construct is no longer bound in servitude to you.

Making a construct permanent removes the preset from your preset slots.

Callings[edit]

Tools of War[edit]

Your creations are made for the battlefield, a herald of death, victory, justice, or whatever you may be.

Item Efficiency

Your specialization is equipment. Starting at 2nd level, when you create a construct using either the Weapon or Armor template, you can remove one resource from the base cost.

Focus

You and your constructs are known for their power. Starting at 6th level, choose one of the options listed below.

  • Any attacks made with your construct weapons ignore resistance but not immunity to the damage it deals.
  • You reduce damage taken by 3 while wearing construct armor you made.
  • Any feature with multiple uses you can use one more time before running out of uses.
Fast Sculpts

With your skill, comes speed. Starting at 10th level, as part of a short rest you can choose to create one common magic item of your choice, spending 1 Mass and Form to do so. This disappears after 8 hours, and you regain the resources after it does.

Warrior Sculpt

You have channeled this bizarre power of your own into forming yourself differently. Starting at 14th level, choose one of the options below.

  • You gain a movement speed of 50 feet. This is for one type of your choice when you get this.
  • You gain proficiency in another two saves of your choice.

  • Your hitpoint maximum cannot be lowered, and your movement speed cannot be reduced unless you are at or below 0 hitpoints.

Masterwork Item

The precipice of your work swiftly approaches. Starting at 18th level, after creating an equipment preset, you can deem it a masterwork. It gains one of the benefits below, of your choice. This item cannot be unbound via Permanence, and only one masterwork can exist at a time.

  • Weapon. It is/counts as oversized, and you can hold it as if it were normal.
  • Weapon. Once on your turn when you make an attack, you can replace one attack with casting a 1st level spell you chose at creation. You regain the ability to do this at the end of your next turn. This spell must take an action to cast, and have a duration of instantaneous.
  • Weapon. As a bonus action, this can be split into two different weapons. Both weapons have the same features, but are considered the same weapons for features that must recharge. The two weapons it splits into can be different weapons, although they cannot have a damage die higher than the original(i.e longsword into two daggers is legal but two greatswords is not).
  • Armor. If you take exactly or less than 7 damage from any source while wearing this, you take no damage instead.
  • Armor. You can choose to be immune to spells of 3rd level or lower while wearing this.
  • Armor. You cannot be the target of an attack which originates from more than 100 feet away.

Beasts of Legend[edit]

Flesh, stone, metal, whatever it may be, you are the sculptor of it, and granter of life to it.

Creature Efficiency

Your specialization is creatures. At 2nd level, you can remove one resource from the base cost of making a creature.

Focus

The beings you create are renown for one thing. At 6th level, choose one of the options below.

  • Construct creatures you make have a +2 to their AC.
  • While you are within 10 feet of one of your construct creatures, both you and the creature have advantage on your first attack roll on your turns.
  • Construct creatures have an extra 20 feet of movement in one type of your choice.
  • Construct creatures gains proficiency in two skills of your choice upon creation.
  • Construct creatures you make are resistant to one damage type of your choice, and know one cantrip that deals the same type of damage. Their casting modifier for this is Constitution.
Minor Creation

You are fully capable of making minor servants with almost no effort. Starting at 10th level, as part of a short rest, you can cast the find familiar spell without using a spell slot or material components. The familiar vanishes after 8 hours.

Paragon Sculpt

You are the greatest of your own projects, those you wish to benefit. Starting at 14th level, choose one of the options below.

  • Any friendly creatures within 30 feet of you are immune to the frightened and charmed conditions.
  • At the start of your turn, hostile creatures within 30 feet of you take 2d4 damage, of a type of your choice when gaining this.
  • Friendly creatures within 30 feet of you have advantage on Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution saving throws.
  • When a friendly creature within 30 feet of you takes damage, you can use your reaction to take the damage they take instead. When you do this, you are considered to have resistance to the damage dealt.
  • When a creature within 30 feet of you is targeted by an attack, you can use a reaction to force them to attack with disadvantage.
Masterwork Creature

As powerful as you are, within you rests the capability to make something that rivals yourself. Starting at 18th level, after creating a creature preset, you can deem it a masterwork. It gains one of the benefits below, of your choice. This item cannot be unbound via Permanence, and only one masterwork can exist at a time.

  • The creature has immunity to 3 damage types of your choice.
  • The creature can make two additional attacks as part of an attack action, following normal limitations.
  • It can dash or dodge as a bonus action.
  • It's size and damage die for standard attack increase by one step.
  • If they are capable of casting leveled spells, they can cast each one an additional time. If they cannot cast spells, they can cast a 3rd level spell of your choice once, and regain the use after a short rest. Their casting modifier for that spell is Constitution, if they don’t have one already.

Variant Rules[edit]

Construct Buildings[edit]

While the initial plan was to include this alongside other class features, this class is already bloated enough for something which is meant to emulate the scaling of the Wizard. As such, the creation of regular old things and places is being relegated to this.

Starting at 5th level, you are now capable of making other objects, outside of the materials bound to you. As downtime, you can now preform two new acts of creation.

  • You can spend a week for every 250 GP that something would require to build, using only half the required resources .
  • You can spend a week and 250 GP worth of resources to create a structure or part of a structure, with a maximum height, length, and width up to your 10 × your Proficiency bonus in feet. While making it, the structure supports it’s own weight, and does not fall unless you wish it to. Every part of the structure has an AC of 12, 3d6 hitpoints, and a damage reduction of 5. While making this, you may spend Materials to grant the structures traits from the list below. You only regain these Materials after the building is destroyed
