Devil Hunter[edit]

Some claim demons are nothing but empty husks, capable of no emotion outside of pure hatred. Unstoppable killing machines, hellbent on causing unfathomable suffering to every living being unlucky enough to cross their path. But there exist few people in this world who disagree with that belief. An elite group of extremely skilled fighters, possessing hidden demonic power of their own. However, beyond their skill and experience they possess an even greater weapon: Style. “Why just beat your enemy when you can make them wish they never crawled out of their fiery hole in the ground in the first place?” is the ideology of those who bear the title “Devil Hunter”. Anyways, enough chatter. Let’s get to it!

[Disclaimer: when making this class, we opted for E & I, Gunslinger, and Blue Rose to be based on hand crossbows rather than guns. If your campaign setting has guns within it, you may change them accordingly.]

Devil Hunters are those who employ style as their weapon, dealing more damage the more stylishly they're fighting. Skilled with a diverse set of weaponry, they can adapt to nearly any situation they're faced with, and when their back’s against the wall, they have an ace in the hole: Devil Trigger.

When you roll initiative, you start at rank E and gain ranks during combat. You can taunt as a bonus action to gain half of the damage needed for the next rank, however, you are vulnerable to all damage until the start of your next turn. For example, you have dealt 50 damage and are at rank C. You taunt as a bonus action, adding 15 extra damage towards your style meter, getting you to rank B. Taunting on consecutive turns without dealing damage does not add to the Style Meter.

2 in 1!

Balrog consists of 2 different fighting modes: Blow Mode, and Kick Mode. You may use a bonus action to swap between Blow Mode or Kick Mode.

Blow Mode

Flurries of punches followed by insanely powerful killer blows, this mode strikes fear into even the most hardened demons. Each blow deals 2d4 per punch. But there’s a trick up your sleeve, after 4 successfully landed punches, flames engulf your arms, enhancing the power of your punches! This status is called Ignition Mode and powers up your attacks with Balrog in both modes! When in Ignition Mode and in Blow Mode, Balrog deals a total of 3d4 bludgeoning + 2d8 fire damage! This effect lasts for 2 turns before the flames dissipate. Heat it up!

Kick Mode

Intense strings of mighty kicks characterize this style! Each kick deals 2d6. Ready to kick things up a notch? Use your action to violently breakdance and heat up the battle! Doing so will trigger Ignition Mode, or if you want to be more stylish, it will “Ignite the Flame” and grant you fire damage in addition to your already existent damage! The total damage you will be doing is 2d6 bludgeoning + 2d8 fire damage. Similarly to Blow Mode, this effect ends after 2 turns.

Swordmaster

This amount of moves is getting crazy! Depending on what weapons you use, you gain new abilities!

For Rebellion / Devil Sword: Roundtrip

Roundtrip: As an attack, you can hurl your sword at an enemy within 60 feet. They must make a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC (Charisma). If they fail, they are hit by the sword for the maximum amount of damage, their movement is set to 0, and the sword stays there spinning in place for two turns, coming back at the start of the third turn, or earlier if you decide to call it back. The enemy is stuck within the swords range for the duration of those two turns, as their movement is set to 0. If they pass the saving throw, they are hit by it once for maximum damage, and it comes back as normal. When you receive your Devil Sword, instead of throwing it, you summon a spectral duplicate of your Devil Sword and throw that instead. The ability acts the same, except for when the sword returns. Instead of the spectral sword returning after the two turns or returning early, it simply vanishes.

For Balrog: Rising Phoenix / Around the World

Rising Phoenix: When in Blow Mode and Ignition Mode, you may use all your attacks to violently uppercut one enemy, dealing triple the normal damage, but instantly ending Ignition Mode.

Around the World: When in Kick Mode and Ignition Mode, you may use all your attacks to viciously kick an enemy an absurd amount of times, juggling them in the air, dealing triple the normal damage die, but also ending Ignition Mode.

For Polearms: Revolution

Revolution: Flail your polearm wildly in front of you, racking up hits, and finish with a demobilizing swipe. This ability uses all your attacks to hit one enemy, but each hit does one more damage die than it usually does. The enemy must then pass a Constitution saving throw against your spell save DC (Charisma) or be knocked prone. Once you use this ability, you cannot use it again until next combat. If you miss all of your attacks with this ability, you regain the use of this ability.

For Axes: Devil May I Axe you a Question

Devil May I Axe you a Question: If trees could feel fear, they’d understand your enemies situation. You spin around wildly, ending in an incredibly destructive chop. Choose a target within a range that equals your movement speed. With your axe in hand, you wildly spin around while making your way to your designated target. If you cross by an enemy within reach on your way to your designated target, they must make a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC (Charisma) or be hit for your weapons damage + 2 more damage die and knocked prone on a failed save or hit for normal damage and not knocked prone on a passed save. When you reach your target, roll to hit with disadvantage, but if you hit, you deal 4 times the normal damage. Regardless of if you hit the last attack or not, you cannot use this ability again until the next combat. Spin to win!

For Nunchucks: Lightning Percussion

Lightning Percussion: Choose a target within 20 feet, you extend your nunchucks beyond their normal limit and attack that target for 3d6 bludgeoning + 4d8 lightning damage. This ability counts as one attack. You can only use this ability three times, regaining the use of this ability at the start of next combat.

BoltSlinger

Twosome Time: You may shoot at two enemies at once when using a ranged attack.

Royal Guard

When making a successful Royal Guard check, you will take no damage, gain a stack of Royal Guard, and receive a charge of Devil Trigger. Royal Guard stacks now deal 15 damage per stack.

Devil Sword[edit]

At level 17, you concentrate colossal amounts of demonic energy into Rebellion, forging your Devil Sword. Infused with demonic power and your own power alike, well, let’s just say this is a party you don’t want to miss. 2d10 magical slashing damage with the versatile (2d12) property with a +3 to attack and damage rolls. And due to the sword being infused with your energy, it has become one with you, allowing you to summon it whenever you deem necessary. Rebellion’s abilities carry over.

Sin Devil Trigger[edit]

At 18th level, you may use all of your Devil Trigger charges and an action to absorb your Devil Sword into yourself, transforming you into Sin Devil Trigger. This form lasts for 1 minute, and you gain the following benefits additionally to the benefits of Devil Trigger:

You may add your Strength modifier to all attack and damage rolls.
You have immunity to all non-magical physical damage, and resistance to all magical physical damage.
You have a flying speed of 60 feet.

While in Sin Devil Trigger, you do not gain the benefits of the playstyles from the Legendary Devil Hunter path. You may end Sin Devil Trigger early by performing the Judgement attack, dealing 20d10 force damage to all creatures within 60 feet of you that fail a dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC (Charisma), or half as much on a successful save.

Quadruple S[edit]

At 20th level, when your style rank is “Smokin' Sexy Style!!!”, you can enter Sin Devil Trigger freely. This ends at the start of your next turn. You cannot perform the Judgement attack during this time.

Deadweight[edit]

The Deadweight path uses the lack of an arm to their advantage, creating artificial limbs called Devil Breakers to destroy their enemies.

Tool Proficiencies: Artisan’s tools Saving Throws: Strength and Constitution

Red Queen[edit]

At 1st level, you are equipped with an incredibly powerful sword. Red Queen deals 1d8 slashing damage and has the Finesse property.

Blue Rose[edit]

At 2nd level, you are outfitted with an exquisitely crafted hand crossbow which launches two bolts simultaneously. Blue Rose deals 2d4 damage and has a range of 30 / 120 feet, and does not have the Loading property.

Wire Snatch[edit]

At 2nd level, due to your lack of an arm, you have decided to make the base of a new one with scraps around you, creating a makeshift grappling hook. As a bonus action on your turn, choose an enemy you can see within 30 feet, if the enemy is medium or smaller, you grab them and pull them towards you. If they are large or larger, you pull yourself towards them. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus per combat, regaining the charges at the start of next combat.

Devil Breakers[edit]

At 3rd level, you finish constructing one of the prosthetic arms in the table below. Each of which have amazing abilities and each one is as effective in combat as they are equally sick as hell. Choose one of the Devil Breakers from the list to gain immediately and unlock the blueprint for. You unlock more Devil Breakers at levels 6th, 7th, 13th, 15th, and 17th. When you unlock new Devil Breakers, you only unlock the blueprint for new Devil Breakers. Devil Breakers also have two sets of abilities, one is the default ability of the breaker that can be used at will, and the second ability is called the Breaker’s “Break Age” and is significantly more powerful than the basic ability, however, it causes the Breaker to shatter. Changing Breakers is a delicate process, and due to this, whenever you change breakers, it takes your entire action to do so.

Overture

Basic: You thrust your hand toward your enemy and electrify them, you deal 2d6 lightning damage. This attack has advantage if the target is wearing metal armor.

Break Age: You grab your enemy and disconnect your arm, transforming it into a time-bomb. The arm explodes after two turns, or alternatively, it can be manually detonated if the target is shot. The explosion deals 4d10 force damage.

Gerbera GP01

Basic: As a reaction to an enemy attacking you, you can make a Strength check to launch yourself 10 feet away in any direction, avoiding the attack.

Basic 2: As a reaction to an enemy attacking you with a ranged weapon, make a Strength check to focus the power of Gerbera in front of you, reflecting the projectile back to the attacker.

Break Age: You fire all the condensed energy within your arm in one blast. This blast of energy forms a line 100 feet long and 5 feet wide that blasts out from Gerbera in a direction you choose. Each creature in the line must make a Dexterity saving throw. A creature takes 8d6 force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Punch Line

Basic: Get em’ girl! You launch your arm out of its socket like a rocket to deal 2d4 bludgeoning damage for 2 turns. You can perform other actions while this ability is active.

Basic 2: Riding hot! Use your bonus action to mount Punch Line like a surfboard, flying past enemies with both ease and flair. Enemies have disadvantage on attack rolls and cannot make attacks of opportunity. This doubles your movement speed, but you cannot attack while in this state. You must use a bonus action to dismount.

Break Age: Blastoff! Charge up Punch Line’s boosters to deliver a devilly devastating uppercut! Deal 6d4 bludgeoning damage.

Buster Arm

Basic / Break Age: Bust and Break, until it is done. In contrast to the previous Breakers, Buster Arm only has one ability. You attempt to grapple an enemy, but they have advantage against being grappled, unless they are under a different condition such as stunned. However, if they are grappled, you inflict 12d10 force damage, and then they are no longer grappled. The Buster Arm only breaks if you manage to grapple an enemy.

Ragtime

Basic: You may freely cast the Slow spell. Nobody move!

A creature affected by this spell makes another Wisdom saving throw at the end of its turn. On a successful save, the Effect ends for it.

Break Age: You throw your arm at the ground, shattering it, which casts the slow spell at 3 times the range, and every enemy within the range must make the save. Take your time!

Sweet Surrender

Basic: You activate the arm, which causes it to vibrate, healing minor wounds you might have accumulated during battle. Heal a number of hit points equal to your level + constitution mod per turn. The maximum amount of turns you may do this is 5 turns per combat.

Break Age: You detach your arm and destroy it, causing healing energy to flow through you and your allies. After you end your turn, any damage dealt is stored in the arm. You may use a reaction to destroy the arm, and whenever you destroy the arm, you and your allies heal that much health.

Crafting Devil Breakers[edit]

To craft a Devil Breaker, you would need the appropriate blueprint for the Devil Breaker, Smith’s Tools, and 100 Gold Pieces. Creating a Devil Breaker also takes 24 hours.

Exceed[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain the ability to increase the metaphorical and literal fire power of Red Queen. As a bonus action, you may rev your sword to gain a charge. This charge deals 2d4 additional fire damage. Red Queen gains additional Exceed charges at levels 6 and 9. I’m baggin’ this bitch!

Color Up[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain new ammunition for Blue Rose. Use a bonus action to load this ammunition, and increase the damage die by 1. (2d4 -> 3d4)

Second Exceed[edit]

At 6th level, you have tinkered with Red Queen and unlocked the second Exceed charge. You have also unlocked a new feature! Whenever you deal a critical hit in combat, you gain 1 Exceed charge!

Charge Shot[edit]

At 7th level, after loading Blue Rose with Color Up ammunition, you may wait another turn to charge your weapon with demonic power, adding 2d4 to the damage of Blue Rose. Other actions may be performed while you are charging your ability, but firing Blue Rose will cancel the charge.

Max Exceed[edit]

At 9th level, you have nearly unlocked Red Queen’s full potential, unlocking the last Exceed charge, and at the same time, a new ability! Now, whenever you deal a critical hit in combat, instead of gaining 1 Exceed charge, you gain all 3!

The Time Has Come and So Have I[edit]

At 11th level you get advantage on initiative rolls and during your first turn in combat, all your attacks have advantage. I’ll laugh last cause’ you came to die!

Crimson Queen[edit]

At 17th level, you have unlocked the true potential of Red Queen. 2d10 magical slashing damage with the finesse property with a +3 to attack and damage rolls. In addition to this, whenever you use your bonus action to rev Crimson Queen, you gain 3 exceed charges.

Devil Trigger[edit]

At 18th level, you remember your demonic heritage and pull your Devil Trigger. This grows back your arm when not using a breaker, and on your turn, you can tap into demonic energies as a bonus action and enter a new form. This form consumes 1 charge per turn. While in this form, you have the following benefits:

You can add your Proficiency bonus on all damage rolls you make.
Your movement speed increases by 10 feet.
You gain advantage on all attacks
You regain health equal to your player level + proficiency bonus at the start of each of your turns.

You can also end your transformation on your turn as a bonus action. You have an amount of charges equal to half your level rounded down. You regain these charges on a long rest. You can also regain these charges by doing damage, when you deal a total of 75 damage, you gain back a charge of Devil Trigger. You cannot go over the limit due to regaining a charge.

Devil Buster[edit]

At 18th level, your Devil Trigger enhances your wire snatch ability, reaching out with an arm of pure demonic energy to pull enemies toward you. This ability behaves the same as Wire Snatch, but the range is increased to 50 feet. Along with this, your Devil Trigger enhances your physical strength, allowing you to perform a weaker, but still badass, version of Buster Arm’s Break Age ability without Buster Arm equipped. This attack deals 6d8 bludgeoning damage in your normal form, 8d8 force damage in Devil Trigger, and functions identically to Buster Arm’s Break Age attack.

You gain these benefits in your normal form.

Unbreakable Breakers[edit]

At 20th level you have perfected your Devil Breakers, fixing the rampant explosion issue. Break Age attacks no longer detonate your Devil Breakers. Additionally, a redesign to the base of your Devil Breakers allows them to be swapped much more efficiently. You may now take a bonus action to swap instead of a full action.

Alpha and the Omega[edit]

The Alpha and the Omega path utilizes swift swordsmanship to defeat enemies, building their concentration to gain even more power over the course of the battle. Now I’m motivated!

Tool Proficiencies: None Saving Throws: Dexterity and Intelligence

Yamato[edit]

At 1st level, you are equipped with the sword Yamato, the sword used to separate the mortal world and demon world. Although it is currently depowered, it deals 1d8 magical slashing damage and has the Versatile(1d10) and Finesse properties. You also gain the abilities Upper slash and Aerial cleave.

Aerial Cleave
Immediately after you use Upper Slash and the target is stunned, you may use Aerial Cleave freely. This attack does max damage with Yamato and throws the target back down to the ground.

3rd level,Trick Dodge
When you are attacked, you may make a Dexterity saving throw equal to the enemy's Intelligence DC (8 + Proficiency bonus + Intelligence Modifier) and vanish at the very last second before an enemy hits you, reappearing 5 feet away in a direction of your choice.

Judgement Cut[edit]

At 7th level, as an attack, you can slash through space and time itself and eviscerate your enemies without so much as moving your sword slightly out of the scabbard. Choose a 10 foot area centered on a point within 30 feet of you. All enemies within that area make a dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC (Intelligence). A creature that fails the saving throw takes 4d6 force damage and is stunned until the end of your next turn. On a successful save a creature takes half of the damage and is not stunned. You cannot use this attack on consecutive turns, however, you may use it multiple times in one turn due to Extra Attack.

Concentration[edit]

At 7th level, During battle, your abilities are enhanced by your focus on the battle. This focus is measured through the Concentration Gauge. This gauge consists of a total of 2 levels. Each level enhances your attacks and natural abilities. Each level requires 3 stacks to reach, meaning level 1 is gained at 3 stacks of concentration and level 2 is 6 stacks. Every time you take damage, you lose 1 stack of Concentration, and for each successful Trick Action, you gain one stack of concentration. At level 1 of concentration, Yamato gains the reach property, Mirage Edge deals twice the damage die. At level 2 of the concentration gauge, Yamato gains an additional damage die, and Mirage Edge deals triple the damage die.

You may use Mirage Edge to knock an enemy high into the air, the target must make a Constitution saving throw against your spell save DC (Intelligence), if they fail, they are stunned until the start of their next turn, if they succeed, they are not stunned.
Helm Breaker
Immediately after you use High time and the target is stunned, you may use Helm Breaker freely. This attack does max damage with Mirage Edge and throws the target to the ground.
Roundtrip
As an attack, you can hurl your sword at an enemy within 60 feet. They must make a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC (Intelligence). If they fail, they are hit by the sword for the maximum amount of damage, their movement is set to 0, and the sword stays there spinning in place for two turns, coming back at the start of the third turn, or earlier if you decide to call it back. The enemy is stuck within the swords range for the duration of those two turns, as their movement is set to 0. If they pass the saving throw, they are hit by it once for maximum damage, and it comes back as normal. When you receive your Devil Sword, instead of throwing it, you summon a spectral duplicate of your Devil Sword and throw that instead. The ability acts the same, except for when the sword returns. Instead of the spectral sword returning after the two turns or returning early, it simply vanishes.
