Enchanter, Variant (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
|“||How beautiful a creature, such a lovely voice and those eyes! I think I have fallen in love. I would follow them to the end of the earth, if they'd allow me!||”|
|—The latest victim of the Enchanter|
Enchanters use charming magic and features to win fights. Born with an other-worldly allure, the mere gaze of an Enchanter can make any creature swoon. Once they've gotten them in the palm of their hand, the Enchanter gets what they want out of their target and leaves without a trace. Over the years they have learned how to use their looks, body, and mind as a means to any end.
Creating an Enchanter
When you are looking to create an enchanter you have to wonder if anyones feelings toward you are ever real. Or if you will ever find true love? If there is someone out there immune to your loveliness? Why do you have so much appeal to others? You see yourself as just an average person and never quite grasp why others fall in love with you just by gazing upon you. Though you don't need to understand to use your power over others, but you will have to decide whether for good or evil.

The Enchanted Mark
At 1st level the enchanted mark can drawn on a creature's skin with charcoal, ink, or blood. This feature requires 1 bonus action to complete and the creature must succeed on Wisdom saving throw to resist. If the creature fails you gain a mental link with the creature, charming it. Once you charm it you may gave the creature one word commands (ex. stay, protect, attack "while pointing at person or single object"), creature must hear and see you. This feature can only be broken if the mark is destroyed. Creatures can make a Wisdom saving throw of every other turn to try to gain consciousness and destroy the mark if they're intelligence is equal to or more than yours. You can only do this feature once per long rest. You must create this personalized "mark" in a design that links you to it. What it means and how it links to you is yours to decide.
At 7th level you can give that creature one sentence commands (ex. stay hear and protect camp.) as long as in can hear you. In addition the creature no longer needs to see you to become charmed. This ability no longer has a range and can still only be broken if the mark is destroyed. You can now do this feature twice per long rest.
At 14th level you master the art of combining ink with your blood to tattoo your mark onto a creature making it " permanent" (it can still be destroyed by burning the skin). You must take the time to mix the two substances carefully making only enough ink to make one mark per long rest. It takes 1 action to tattoo your mark onto a willing or unconscious creature. Tattooing your mark onto a creature makes the mental link stronger. The stronger link can now give you the ability to understanding what the mark creature is doing and give it advanced commands mentally. You can now do this feature 3 times per long rest. You are no longer able to be charmed while you have this link.
At 2nd level, touching a willing or unwilling creature can give you "control" of them. The unwilling creature must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw to resist. If it succeeds on the saving throw you can not try this again on that creature. If you gain control, this allows you to cast all your enchanting spells and charisma skills on them without any resistance for 4 rounds. You may only do this feature once per short rest and twice per long rest.
At 5th level, if a creature with a CR less than or equal to one-third your level (rounded up) is immune to the charmed condition and they aren't an undead or construct, they lose their immunity to being charmed by you.

Dagger of Charming
At 10th level, you can now carve your mark into daggers. You can use a bonus action to draw your mark on a dagger.

On a failed save, the mark is transferred from the dagger to the creature. Marked daggers deal an extra 1d6 psychic damage whether or not the mark transfers.
At 13th level, all marked creatures are so under your captivating influence that they lower all their guards. Now all attacks made towards marked creatures are at an advantage.
At 20th level you gain the ability to cause a marked creature's enchanted mark to detonate on your command. The mark will explode in a 10 ft radius, dealing 4d8 force damage to all creatures within that range. After using this feature, the mark is destroyed and removed from the marked creature. All creatures damaged by the explosion have to make a Constitution saving throw or be blinded for their next turn.
