You master the powers of poison. At 1st level your daggers have a deadly poison that deals 1 damage per turn. When you hit an enemy, the target creature must succeed on a DC 17 Constitution Saving Throw or be poisoned for 1d4 + Your Wisdom Modifier turns. This feature gets improved to 4 damage per turn at 7th level and to 10 damage per turn at level 17.
You are a master with your weapon of choice - the dagger. At 1st level you add your proficiency bonus to the base damage of the dagger.
You're very frail and you know it. At 2nd level, when your hit points are below 25% (rounded down) your movement speed is increased by 10 ft.
At 3rd level, you chose a Crow Archetype. Choose between Toxic Crow and Team Player Crow, both detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at 6th and 14th level.
Ability Score Increase
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.
You unleash your true power. At 5th level, as an action, you gain the ability to jump forward 20 ft. Everything in a 10 ft. circle from where you landed is damaged for 1d6 + Wisdom modifier damage. This feature's damage increases to 1d8 + Wisdom at level 10, and to 2d8 + 2x Wisdom at level 17.
At 5th level, whenever you take the attack action on your turn you can attack twice, instead of once.
At 9th level, you have tapped into your sealed talents and now posses special Dagger Points you can use on different abilities. These points increase as you progress in levels, as stated in the Crow feature table. You regain all lost Dagger Points after you take a long rest.
At 9th level, you gain the ability to throw multiple daggers in one action.You can throw them at different targets, or you can throw them on one. Your daggers return to you after that. This is limited to however many daggers you have. This feature costs 5 Dagger Points to use. While Dagger Dance is active, your daggers cannot be destroyed by magic.
On Your Toes
You know everyone is trying to get you, so you stay aware of your surroundings. At 11th level you gain proficiency in Perception, and you can't be suprised by enemies. You also sense traps whenever there are any nearby.
Out Of The Shadows
At 13th level, you master the power of stealth. You can use the Hide action as a Bonus action, and you deal double base damage when stealthed.
At 15th level, you can spend 10 Dagger Points to leech the hit points of the next target you kill. You take the hit points it had last BEFORE dying.
At 18th level you gain expertise for all Dexterity based skills. Your movement speed increases by 10 ft.
At 20th level, you have mastered the power of the daggers. You can spend Dagger Points to increase your base dagger damage, where: X Dagger Points = X damage increase.
You master the power of poison and acid and use them to their full potential. You gain resistance to poison and acid damage.
- Acidic Pain
At 6th level, your poison damage also becomes acid and magical to avoid resistances and immunities.
- Uncurable Poison
At 14th level, your attacks ignore 50% of temporary hit points (Rounded down). Also, while an enemy is under the poison effect of YOUR attacks, they cannot heal any amount of regular hit points. The poison effect doesn't have this feature. (Example: If you do 11 damage, 5 is going to hit the temporary hit points, and 6 is going to hit the normal hit points)
Team Player Crow
You realize that teamwork is going to get much farther, so you master in aiding your teammates in battle. You gain proficiency in the Medicine and Insight skills.
- Slowed and poisoned
At 6th level, while the enemy is poisoned by YOUR attacks, its movement speed is halved and it can't take reactions.
- Healing Pain
At 14th level, while an enemy is poisoned by YOUR attacks, you and your teammates regenerate 1d4 health per turn (can stack with multiple enemies)
(Example: If an enemy is poisoned for 3 turns, you and your teammates each regenerate 1d4 every turn for 3 turns. If 3 enemies are poisoned for X turns - 3d4 for X turns)
