The cultivator concept and many of its abilities are based on traditional chinese stories and myths called Xianxia about travelers who gather Qi,an energy of souls of the dead to gain supernatural powers and extend their lifespan,because of the similarities in source,this class is a lot like the Monk,though there are differences in both source and execution that make the class feel unique.You could think of this like a full-caster variant of the monk,even though that was not the idea behind the design of the class.


Cultivator[edit]

天谕-玉虚同人 by 赭霞墨曲_贤先生,depicting an antique soul cultivator

Under the light of the full moon, the robed high elf stops meditating suddenly,and jumps 30 feet into the air,landing in front of his assailants,with a polite smile on his face.In the middle of the roaring crowd,the orc plays her dulcimer and a calm falls upon the commoners,eased by the gentle melody.The goblins are being choked by he energy around the tiefling changes his enviroments as he blasts orbs of soul energy bouncing around his flying weapons.All cultivators,tied by their goal and divided by their methods,aim to become gods through using the life energy left in this world by the fragmented souls of the dead.Unlike a monk,they do not use their body as a conduit for the energy.With the discipline of a monk and the grace of a bard,they direct the energy around them like a piper,and concentrate it into powerful blasts of mythical power.

Creating a Cultivator[edit]

While making a cultivator,think about your character's goals and motivations.Do they want to master the path of the cultivator,and reach godhood by using soul manipulation?Or are they using cultivation itself as a means to a greater end?Think about how and where your character learned the basics of cultivation.Where they an orphan?Or is their family a line of cultivators that have stopped on the way to godhood for one reason or another?Is your character Idealistic,wanting immortality to be able to learn all is in the world?Are they afraid of death,or do they simply crave power?How is adventuring helping in your journey of cultivating?Do you want to see the world,or are you searching for places of high soul concentration? As a result of the structured lifestyle cultivating requires,most cultivators tend towards lawful,although most cultivators are highly eccentric,and their laws are not those of their land,but rather honour-bound code that they think is necessary to stick to to ascend to godhood.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

Beginning at 1st level, while you are wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier.


Simple Soul Shaping[edit]

At 1st level,you gain the ability to manipulate the very essence of death and life,you have knowledge and control over your soul core,what holds your soul and physical being inside you,you gain a number of soul points,which represent how many other souls you can hold inside your soul core,there are 6 kinds of souls:

  • Happiness souls,made of happy memories and lives well lived,that can be used to bolster your allies in battle
  • Demonic souls,made from the dead wills of those whove died in battle,can be fused into bodies to create minions and concentrated into necromantic energy
  • Greed souls,made from unfulfiled worthly wishes,they can be manipulated into a wide variety of useful effects and tricks
  • Follower souls,made from the sense of duty and community of men in life,can be used to inspire and manipulate enemies and "friends" alike
  • Antique souls are souls that have been purified with time,they are souls who've circled through the planet's circle of life countless times,slimming off all memories and wants of thier humanoid hosts,these pure souls are used for combat effects relating to strengthening oneself or using one's soul connected artifacts
  • Esoteric souls are what is remained from the process of soul degradation,they are an amalgamation of all other souls,fused into an unstable form.they can be used in unorthodox ways to gain access to special powers.

When you spend a Soul,it is not destroyed but sent on it's way to be reborn on the path of life. You you can perform a soul collecting ritual while taking a short rest to get half of your maximum souls. Alternatively,you may choose to practice a 5 hour ritual during a long rest,to regain all of your soul points.

To be able to change the soul you are holding you must you perform a ritual of soul change.for which you require 24 hours,you must be in a place without the threat of danger to perform this ritual,after you perform it you gain the max amount of a soul different than the one you had previously,and can only collect souls of that kind.

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Whenever a spell or cultivator class feature requires you to roll two dice and pick one of them to choose the nature of an effect,you can instead roll 3 dice.If any of the land on the same number,you must pick one of the dice that landed on the same number to activate any effects that would activate when the two dice would roll the same number.This is true even if the dice's numbers are also used for more than just determining the nature of an effect,such as damage.

  • The creature adds your proficiency bonus to its weapon damage rolls
  • The creature adds half your wisdom modifier to its AC (minimum 1)
  • The creature adds half your dexterity modifier to its attack rolls (minimum 1)

In addition to this,you can now use a body or set of bones as a soul connection item,the weapon beomes medium in size,its damage is bludgeoning,and it takes up its space.except this,all other features of a soul weapon are not changed,and a body connected this way cannot be used in a way that a soul weapon can not,such as opening a door or keeping watch.

Path of Peace[edit]

Cultivators that go through the path of peace believe that patience is the true virtue that is essential to becoming a godly being,they sacrifice deep understanding of specific souls for the ability to control all elements and be useful in any situation.Cultivators on the path of Peace value harmony over conflict,although thinking that they are all pacifists is a foolish mistake.

When taking this subclass at level 6,your soul collected objects' damage dice becomes a d10,additionally the range they can go out to becomes 5 times your proficiency bonus feet . They can also cumulatively carry a weight equal to your wisdom score multiplied by 15 pounds,if the objects are carrying a weight that exceeds this number you must make a DC 15 Wisdom save every minute,or you lose your soul connection to the object carrying the most weight
