It can also gain resistance to any damage type, and change that type every day. You choose what weapon damage you add from a long list when you activate it. You can choose bonuses to AC, attack rolls, vision enhancements, and a dozen other things, many of which read like feats. Whole class needs to be examined.

Gem Wielder[edit]

Strange Weapon Masters[edit]

Gem Wielders, while not much is known about them to the general public, are known for one thing: their weapon. Each one carries a weapon made out of a magical gemstone. Many rumors in societies that have seen a Gem Wielder float around about the gemstone weapon. It is a blessing from a strange god or goddess, they possess a magic that summons it out of thin air, it's an illusion placed over a weapon, and many more. The truth is, Gem Weapons are made with a rare and magical gemstone that is lightweight and posses magical properties, tougher than most materials but can be smithed like iron.

The Hidden Guild of Few Weapons

Gem Wielders are a mostly society of specialized warriors that appear in extraordinary times to bring peace or exterminate those who threaten peace. They are uncommon to find in a regular society and never stay in the same place for long unless hired to do so. Most people think of them as mystical bounty hunters because of this, but there is always a secondary purpose with Gem Wielders. They tend to take missions that go along with their own mission and never go back to get their reward unless the job required the return of an item.

A Gem Wielder has few weapons compared to most other soldiers, a show/spare weapon and their end-all weapon. Unless in a situation of emergency or a mission limited by time, Gem Wielders will use their spare weapon. They do this to, in a sense, appear professional as their society treats a Gem Weapon as a very personal Item.

United Mercenaries of the Underground

Gem Wielders, while protectors of society, are only so in times of extreme need. Otherwise they are mercenaries and only loyal to the original payer. Even if another tried to bribe them with even more, they only fulfill their first duty and mission. If you happen to find one and need a difficult job done, they are worth the price as they get it done in ways more efficient and stranger than imagined. They are rare in any desert and tenfold rarer in any environment after that, save for those of the Emerald gems who dwell in forests with giant trees and dangerous mountains.

Their homes are always hidden from the rest of the world, and any who try to find it either end up lost, are turned away if they get close, or killed for crossing into their territory.

The Weapon of Treasure

Gem Wielder society has a sacred tradition that happens in each individual’s life. Either it is for showing that the individual has come of age or it is the one limitation for lucky outsiders to join their society: forging their one and only Gem Weapon. They provide the tools, but you must find the strange and magical gemstone used in their weapons and forge it into a special weapon. This process can take months as this specific gemstone is volatile. But once forged, you are respected by many of the society.

Each of the discovered magical gemstone has its own faction and culture in the society. There is the Garnet connected who are about expression and dramatic flair, wearing yukata and having a love for cherry blossoms. Then there is the Sapphire connected, where physical strength carries you far in the society and generally carry heavier weapons. Topaz connected tend to be tinkerers, needing to find new ways to improve every little thing and are the only Gem Wielders able to craft ranged Gem Weapons. Not to mention the Amethyst connected, who have a tendency to speak in riddles due to their various studies and research into the unknown and aid the Topaz connected in inventing.

Creating a Gem Wielder[edit]

When making a Gem Wielder, think about how you came into the society. Were you born in the deserts or forests that they reside in, or were you a lost and abandoned soul that was given a chance for greatness? Were you born in the era where Gem Wielders sieged war on each other or were you born during the time were peace was negotiated? Why did you start traveling? Maybe you on a quest to find Excalibur to help your faction win the war or to bring pride to your nation. Or maybe there is a threat to the world that you sent to aid in destroying.

Gem Connection[edit]

A Gem Wielder does not attack with ordinary weapons, but rather weapons where the damaging area is made of a gemstone. The weapon of each Gem Wielder is forged to match their culture or persona, as they only get one Gem Weapon in their life.

At 1st level, you chose a connection. Choose between Ruby Connection, Sapphire Connection, Emerald Connection, Diamond Connection, Gold Connection, Amethyst Connection, Onyx Connection, Topaz Connection, and Garnet Connection, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st, and again at 6th, 9th, 15th, and 20th levels.

Choose one of the Gem Connections. There are 9 types of connections: They are listed at the end of the class details page, each influencing the skills and abilities of your Gem Wielder by granting you features 1st and at later levels. You do not need to have your Gem Weapon on you to use any of the abilities unless the ability specifies otherwise.

Gem Weapon[edit]

Gem Wielders, above all else, are known for their weapon made of a gemstone. Rumors fly around that all Gem Wielders have unusual strength or enchant themselves to carry the weapon. In reality, the weapon made of gemstone is made lighter through a special forging process while maintaining the same purity of the material.

Choose one of your weapons or a shield that you carry. All material besides the grip is made of the gemstone you choose from your Gem Connection. It weighs just as much as the regular version of that weapon and deals the same amount of damage and has the same properties. The Gem Weapon cannot be ammunition nor a ranged weapon unless you are of the Topaz connection, in which it can only be a ranged weapon and not a melee weapon nor ammunition. A throwable weapon does not count as a ranged weapon for a Topaz weapon.

You can sense the direction of the weapon if it is ever separated from you and it can’t enter another plane of existence unless you are with it. It is considered a magical weapon. When your Gem Weapon somehow is within an Antimagic Field spell, it is shoved outside the radius of the spell and can’t enter the field but does not lose its magical properties for the brief moment it is within the field. This weapon can’t be broken by any non-magical means. Any magic that tries to break it that is considered 7th level or lower automatically fails. Any magic that is considered above that and isn’t a wish spell that intends to break the weapon must succeed on a DC 28 Arcana check to bypass the magic and a DC 27 Strength check to damage it. Anything below a 24 fails completely, 25 leaves the blades permanently scratched, 26 leaves a few cracks but leaves the weapon usable, and a 27 or more shatters the weapon completely.

When a Gem Weapon shatters, every creature within 25 feet takes 4d20 magical piercing damage as the shattered pieces fling everywhere. Ignore resistance and immunities for this damage. When this happens, you lose the ability to use any Gem Wielder Features that require the Gem Weapon. You must be attuned to this weapon and are immune to any effects that force to unattuned from a weapon.

Desert Dweller[edit]

As mentioned earlier, your home is within the deserts. You thrive in this environment and this environment works for you. You gain the following benefits at 2nd level:

What Off-Hand?[edit]

To survive in combat and in other areas where hands are needed, you have become ambidextrous. Starting at 3rd level, using your offhand for anything is the same as using your main hand and when dual-wielding you also may add your ability modifier to damage rolls for your second attack.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

At 4th level, you may improve two of your ability scores by one or one ability score by two. You get this option again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level.

Extra Attack[edit]

You have become more calculating when attack, being able to slip in more hits with ease. Whenever you take the attack action, you may roll for two attacks.

Elemental Technique[edit]

The bond between you and your gem has strengthened, allowing you to touch deep in its magic reserves. Starting at 7th level and as many times as your Constitution modifier per long rest, you use a special weapon technique to summon an element to coat your weapon or, if you are of the Topaz Connection, able to recite the ancient language of the Gem Knights to imbue your weapon to launch special energy.

This effect can be activated as a bonus action and lasts for a minute. At the end of the last turn, the element sinks back into the gem and you lose your bonus action for the following round.

The Elemental Technique damage adds a Gem Die to the overall damage. You may only have one Elemental Technique as of 6th level and may choose a second technique at 17th level. When you choose your second Elemental Technique, you may use each to a combined total of your Constitution modifier and your proficiency bonus. The techniques are as follows:

Artic Technique / Blizzard Shot

The gemstone coats itself with frost similar to an ancient white dragon. Your Gem Die for this technique is cold damage.

Ash Technique / Searing Shot

The gemstone swells with heat and erupts in flames similar to that of an ancient red dragon. Your Gem Die for this technique is fire damage.

Celestial Technque / Angelic Shot

The gemstone glows bright with the energy of the Celestials. Your Gem Die for this technique is radiant damage.

Cobra Technique / Cobra Shot

The gemstone secretes a concoction that is more dangerous that of a cobra. Your Gem Die for this technique is poison damage.

Storm Technique / Bolt Shot

The gemstone sparks with electricity that coats the gemstone similar to that of a lightning strike. Your Gem Die for this technique is lightning damage.

Hurricane Technique / Hurricane Shot

The gemstone expels wind from inside to swirl around it. Your Gem Die for this technique is force damage.

Sulfur Technique / Sulfur Shot

The gemstone begins to steam with a melting liquid. Your Gem Die for this technique is acid damage.

Zombie Technique / Vampiric Shot

The gemstone summons cold, undead energy not unlike that of Atropus. Your Gem Die for this technique is necrotic damage.

You regain all expended uses after each long rest. Elemental Techniques don’t double damage on critical hits.

Gem Weapon Enhancement[edit]

You have discovered how to enchant your weapon even further. Starting at 10th level and for only one long rest to gain the permanent effects, you forge more magic into your Gem Weapon to gain one of the following improvements to your Gem Weapon:

- Arcane Gem – As an action, your Gem Weapon flies back into your hand if it is withing a mile of you. When doing this, it takes the shortest route to your hand that you are using to summon it and does so at a flying speed of 60 feet. If it isn't, a pillar of light matching the gemstone color shines into the sky until you hold it again, this light not being blocked by structures.

- Banshee Slayer [Prerequisite- 14th level Gem Wielder] – Choose once damage type. Whenever you attack a creature with that damage type, you ignore all resistances and immunities that creature has to that damage type.

- Blind Weapon Sees All [Prerequisite- 14th level] – While holding your Gem Weapon, you have a blindsight of 70 feet.

- Legends Never Die [Prerequisite- 18th level Gem Wielder] – When you are damaged by an melee weapon attack that would reduce your hit points to 35 or lower, you may use your reaction to grant yourself an immunity to that damage and make an attack roll against what attacked you, adding your Gem Die to your attack roll. You may do this once per long rest.

- Limit Breaker [Prerequisite- 14th level Gem Wielder] – Choose one of your Gem Wielder features that has a usage limit. The limit for that feature is doubled.

- Invulnerable – Choose a damage type. You have resistance to that damage type while holding your Gem Weapon. You may use an enhancement slot at 14th level to have an immunity to that damage type.

- Preserved – If you die, your Gem Weapon doesn’t explode. Another creature friendly to you can attune to your Gem Weapon and gain the first level features of your Gem Connection.

- Sentient Gem [Prerequisite-18th level Gem Wielder] – Your Gem Weapon gains a blindsight of 10 feet. As a reaction to being targeted by an attack from behind you, your Gem Weapon can fly out and block any melee, ranged, or single-target damaging spell attack. The attack is immediately stopped, and the Gem Weapon returns to your hand on the beginning of your next turn.

- Silent Speech – When holding your Gem Weapon, you gain a telepathy range of 30 feet. If you already have a telepathic ability, the range increases by 20 feet. You may take this enhancement multiple times.

- Stunning Blow [Prerequisite- a Gem Weapon that does bludgeoning damage, 14th level Gem Wielder] – When you roll a 20 on an attack roll, you may use your bonus action to have the target become stunned for 12 seconds.

Hearty Attack[edit]

A Gem Wielder’s heartiness provides not endurance alone but strength in battle. Starting at 13th level, you may use your Constitution modifier instead of Strength or Dexterity for attack and damage rolls.

The Ruby Connection affects your class in the following ways:

However, the additional bonus action for that turn is rolled at disadvantage if there is a roll required.

Starting at 9th level and whenever you take the attack action, you roll for another attack using your Gem Weapon. On a hit, you deal a Gem Die of force damage and push your target back 5 feet on a failed DC 16 Strength saving throw. This feature doesn’t count as an Extra Attack feature.

Sapphire Connection[edit]

The Sapphire connection is known for their brute strength capabilities. However, they do have some brainpower despite general stereotypes. The help design the layout of the Gem Capital and invented thermoflasks (though never showing the surface world of this creation and also gaining the jealousy of the Amethyst and Topaz factions for the creation). They are the prime sport entertainment for all the factions and devised the military training for all the factions based in the desert. In the one time the Gem Wielders got involved in a full-scale war, the Sapphires played a critical role in military strategy and also dominated the battlefield even against powerful spellcasters. They do have an appreciation for writing and desert-functional fashion, though they put their training first. Their leader named The Protein of Sapphires is held to a special set of rules and is determined through an arm-wrestling tournament.

When you reach 6th level, you gain the ability to dual wield two weapons if neither have the Two-Handed feature nor Reach feature. If you are also a creature of Tiny or Small size, you are no longer affected by the Heavy weapon feature.

At 9th level, you can dual wield two weapons as long as neither have the Reach feature.

Startling Superiority

You are the one of the mightiest mortal creatures. Starting at 9th level when you must make a Strength check or a Strength saving throw against something you can see, you may use your reaction to make yourself sturdy and give yourself advantage on that Strength check or saving throw.

You can this once per short or long rest and you don’t need to have your Gem Weapon on you to use this feature. At 9th level, you can do this a number of times equal to your Constitution Modifier.

Striking Start

Sapphire represents power, and you are the definition of strength. Put both together and there is a mighty sight that even the most raged of barbarians fear. Starting at 15th level, whenever you roll for an attack roll and get a critical, you may add your Gem Die of your weapons damage type to the damage roll.

Also starting at 15th level, you may use your bonus action to summon energy from your weapon and roll up to half of your remaining Hit Dice to heal yourself by the amount rolled. You can only do this once per short rest and must have your Gem Weapon on you to use this feature.

Emerald Connection[edit]

Those of the Emerald connection are the most distant faction of Gem Wielders. Their ability of immense jumps can be suited for the semi-tight underground tunnels, but it usually leaves them craving for more freedom. They are the only faction to barely inhabit the underground Emerald Tunnels and the Gem Capital itself, they have multiple bases hidden on the surface in forests that are hidden as well as the Capital itself. Somehow, the faction tends to host the most empathetic souls and have been the most common therapists for the rejects of the surface societies being accepted into the Gem Society. Their leader is chosen through eliminating all but 6 Emperor Emerald candidates though many tests of physical and mental tests who then give a public speech followed by an election where the rest of the faction elects one of the 6 who they think would lead best. This faction, since they are in the outside world most often and are the most commonly found doing outside jobs, bring many surface-culture goods to trade with the other factions. Their culture is a mix of many, but wit is highly valued among the faction.

Hit Points: 1d8 per Gem Wielder level.

Hit Points at 1st level: 8 + your Constitution modifier

Hit points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per Gem Wielder level after 1st

When you do move at least 10 feet immediately before performing either Jump action, your overall jumping height for the High Jump and distance for the Long Jump are tripled. You use your Dexterity modifier instead of Strength.

Emerald Evergreen

As a native to the forests, you are one of the most adapted for traveling them as well as using the terrain to your advantage. You gain the following benefits:

• When traveling through a forest, you may add your Gem Die to Perception checks if you aren’t suffering a level of Exhaustion or under the effects of an enchantment spell.

• You are have expertise in the Acrobatics skill if you don’t already have expertise in it.

You make do this check at disadvantage to gain a passive leaping stealth equal to your AC.

• When you jump, the amount of movement you spend jumping isn’t limited by your speed.

Aerial Assault

Starting at 6th level, you are able to summon the winds to propel you into the air. As long as you aren’t wearing medium or heavy armor, you may use your Action to jump up to of your movement speed + 5 feet into the air. You may also use your bonus action have wind flare from your Gem Weapon as you swipe in a direction, sending you up to half of your movement speed + 5 feet in the opposite direction.

You may keep aloft by spend a bonus action to keep in the air but must move at least 10 feet to maintain the same height above ground. You may also use an Action to do so without provoking an attack of opportunity, but previously stated requirements still apply here. You may perform a total number of turns using these actions equal to your Constitution Modifier (minimum of 1 turn). Each turn above your limit you perform these actions, you gain a point of exhaustion.

You must have your Gem Weapon on you to use this feature.

Aerial Adept

Due to your jumping abilities, you may have had a few . . . unfortunate moments of falling. At 9th Level, your green gemstone weapon increases how much of a beating you can take from falling. You take no falling damage when falling from a place as high as 65 feet and you land on your feet. Additionally, you have resistance to falling damage when falling as high as 110 feet.

Exit Expert

Your jumping ability has quite the potential, thanks to the gemstone color of your weapon. At 15th level, when you see an enemy uses a spell on you that requires an attack roll or loses an arrow on you, you may roll a Dexterity Saving Throw against the enemy’s spellsave DC/enemy’s attack roll to avoid the attack. On a success, you jump 10 feet into the air and avoid the attack entirely (unless there is a certain area of effect feature to the attack, then rules still apply). On a failure, you are hit but still jump up 5 feet.

You can’t do this if you are wearing heavy armor and you must have your Gem Weapon on you to use this feature.
