Fist of The North Pole[edit]

Long ago, there lived a greater deity, called Nicholas the Everfrozen. A multitude of ice elves venerated him in his domain, located on the Frostfell, quasi-elemental plane of ice. But his biggest group of followers were children across the multiverse, for Nicholas delighted in creating simple, yet enjoyable toys, which he proceeded to give to well-behaved children. But an awful disinformation campaign launched by evil deities, claiming that Nicholas is just a fairy tale, was weakening him greatly. So, knowing where one would fail, good 'ol Nick invented a powerful fighting style, he called Fist of the North Pole. Divine in its nature, practitioners of this art, called Santas, were gaining powers akin to the ones Nicholas had. Every Santa is on a mission to deliver Christmas to Faerun. They deliver COAL to those on his Naughty list, and serve as a bastion to defend those on his Nice list. One way or another, everyone is getting their presents this year...

Delivering COAL[edit]

Old Saint Nick wishes to bestow COAL upon his enem-... upon those on his Naughty List. Your attacks channel the power of Christmas itself into your opponent, making them feel as if they just received a lump of Frozen Coal on Christmas Morning. Beginning at 1st level, once per turn, when you hit an enemy with melee attack you can deal additional cold damage equal to 1d4. If a creature takes this cold damage, it cannot take the dash or disengage action until the end of its next turn, as great chills bind it.

The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the COAL column of the Fist of The North Pole table.

Northern Fortitude[edit]

Chill is just a part of you. Starting as 1st level, you naturally acclimate to extremely cold climates. Additionally, you gain resistance to cold damage.

Naughty List[edit]

This goes without saying. Starting at 1st level you can cast Detect Evil and Good spell, requiring no components a number of times equal to your Constitution modifier. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.


You like sweets, but who does not? Starting at 2nd level you can use your cook's utensils to make delicious cookies out of ordinary ingredients like eggs, flour, love, milk and sugar. As a part of the long rest, you can make a number of cookies equal to your proficiency modifier, and any unconsumed cookies you made spoil when you make the new batch. You can use your bonus action to eat a cookie or force-feed another willing or unconscious creature. Creature eating a cookie regains 2d4 + your proficiency bonus hit points.

Other creatures can also use their bonus action to eat a cookie or force-feed someone and regain hit points, provided they recieved those cookies from you.

At 10th level, you can prepare cookies as a part of short or long rest.

Santa Path[edit]

At 3rd level, you choose an archetype that you better inpersonate, choosing from Christmas Spirit and Winter Father, both described at the end of this class' description. Your archetype choice grants you features at 3rd level and then again at 6th, 11th, and 17th level.

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.

You can give this present to any creature, and if the creature is considered a child by the standards of it's race, then you gain bonus to the Charisma skill checks considering this creature equal to your Constitution modifier for the next year.
