The Power of the Magatama[edit]

“The Magatama is the essence of demons, and by consuming this, you will become a demon"

Magatamas are bug-like creatures you can ingest to gain access to new skills and spells. The magatama also increases your stats, regardless of if they pass the 20 threshold. Despite these benefits, you may only have one magatama active at a time.

There are 25 total magatama that will be detailed at the end of the class description, and your character starts with the Marogareh magatama. You choose to gain either the Wadatsumi or Ankh magatama after defeating a powerful enemy of your DM’s discretion, and you gain the other one at your DM’s discretion as well. The rest of the Magatama are purchasable from demonic beings that only you can see when you take a long rest.

You can change what magatama you have equipped only when outside of combat.

You may only use the skills granted by the magatama after attuning to it and meeting the level requirement.

In addition to this, the first skill learned from a magatama takes half the attuning time. Attuning takes an amount of time equal to the required level of the skill multiplied by 6 hours. (e.g. level 4 skill would take 24 hours to learn). You may keep a maximum of 8 skills/spells within yourself at any given time. If you wish to replace one, you can attune to a magatama and replace it, and you can relearn any skill at any time, you merely need to attune.

Demonic Strength[edit]

At 1st level, instead of your unarmed strikes doing their regular damage, they deal 1d6 bludgeoning damage.

This damage increases to 2d4 bludgeoning damage at level 6 and 3d4 bludgeoning damage at level 10.

You are also considered a larger size category in terms of lifting or carrying capacity.

Fiendish Body[edit]

Starting at 1st level, due to being half-demon, you do not need to eat, sleep, or drink, but you can consume food or drink if you wish, you also stop aging. You are also immune to all diseases.

In addition to all of this, while you are wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + 5.

However, all of these benefits don’t come without a price. Unless you conceal yourself, people will see you as a pure demon, and will either be skeptical of you, fear you, or will attack you outright.

Demonic Magic[edit]

Upon reaching 2nd level, you should have unlocked your next magatama, so you now have access to magic skills. Instead of spell slots, you use an mp based system.

You calculate your max MP by using this calculation: (Level + (Intelligence+Wisdom+Charisma/1.5)) x 3 = mp

You fully regain MP on a long rest, and you regain half your MP on a short rest.

When magic is referenced is in this class, magic is equivalent to your intelligence, wisdom, and charisma grouped together.

Press Turns[edit]

When in combat, you have discovered how to exploit your enemies' habits and weaknesses. Starting at 2nd level, if you manage to land a critical hit or hit an enemies weakness, you gain a “Press Turn”, this is an extra turn that is consumed when doing another action or bonus action.

Alternatively, you can pass the Press Turn to one of your allies, so they may act on your turn, using either an action or bonus action.

An ally using a Press Turn does not consume their turn in the initiative order.

Magatama Mercantilism[edit]

At level 3, the magatamas you unlock are unlocked in sets, and each set costs a different amount of money to purchase.

The prices are determined by your DM, as every game has different amounts of currency in circulation.

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.

Magatama Mercantilism Improvement[edit]

You begin to understand the mannerisms of the demons you buy your magatamas from, and they decide to give you discounts.

  • At level 5, you have a 4% discount.
  • At level 7, you have an 8% discount.
  • At level 10, you have a 12% discount.
  • At level 13, you have a 16% discount.
  • At level 18, you have a 20% discount.

The True Power of the Magatama[edit]

At level 20, you have reached the pinnacle of your strength, which unlocks the Masakados magatama.
