Creating a Gravitonic Master
Extending her aura she locks the bandits in place as she slowly works towards them. This is their end they were caught in her field and now must pay the price. Before then can even make a sound a weight of 10 tons crushes them leaving nothing but blood splatter.
Standing at the vanguard of his group he starts to draw the gravity towards him. Stopping the archers that had ambushed his party from injuring his allies. He is a tower of impenetrable might and will stop all who hurt the ones he is trying to protect.
Moving weightlessly from building to building, sometimes on the tops other running up the sides. His prey below doesn't see or hear him. He moves without a sound and finds his mark, draws his short sword that could be mistaken for a feather upon holding it. Waits and makes his move slashing the through and before his prey can even recognize there was a threat the second strike has already come.

Gravity Save DC
Some of the effects of this class result in a need for your target to make a saving throw to resist the effect. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:
Effect save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your strength modifier.
Furthermore, all abilities of the Gravitonic Master are considered non-magical and are purely ability based. The Gravitonic Master's effect are not affected by spells or abilities like Counterspell, Dispel Magic, antimagic cones, ect.
Beginning at 1st level, while you are wearing no armor your AC is 10 + your Strength modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a shield and still gain this benefit.
Your training has taught you how to harness the force of gravity. In order to do this, you spend what are called gravity points. You have a number of gravity points determined by your character level on Table: The Gravitonic Master. You regain all expended gravity points at the end of a short or long rest.
Your manipulation of gravity makes things you wear feel almost weightless. You suffer no weight penalties from your equipment and you cannot become encumbered by your equipment. You can wield a two-handed weapon as though it were a one-handed weapon, as well as treating all versatile weapons as if you were wielding them with both hands when you wield them in one hand. Additionally, you can dual wield weapons that don't have the light property.
At 1st level you gain the Gravity Force cantrip.
At 2nd level and then again at level 5, you adopt a special fighting style, called a gravitational wave, as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can't take a gravitational wave option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.
- Continuous Gravitational Wave
You gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls you make with ranged weapons.
- Stochastic Gravitational Wave
While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.
- Burst Gravitational Wave
When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.
- Compact Binary Inspiral Gravitational Wave
When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.
- Linearly Polarised Gravitational Wave
When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.
- Bipolar Gravitational Wave
When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack. Also, you do not take penalties from dual wielding.
At 2nd level, you may enhance your strikes on your foes with the force of gravity. Once per turn you may expend 1 or more gravity points to add 1d6 force damage to your next weapon attack and one extra d6 for every extra point spent. You can add a number of damage die this way to a maximum of your proficiency bonus.
At 3rd level, you may spend 2 gravity points as a bonus action to surround yourself in a sphere of gravity 10 ft radius centered on you and you may choose any creatures within the aura to be immune to its effects. This aura can last up to one minute. Additionally, when you choose to activate it, you can decide to spend any number of gravity points to expand the Aura by 10ft. When you activate this feature, and at the start of your following turns choose one of these effects:
Push. Creatures within your aura must make a Strength Save at the start of their turn. If they fail they are pushed outside the aura's radius.
Pull. Creatures within your aura must make a Strength Save at the start of their turn. If they fail they are brought next to you.
Wave Warp. Requires 7th level. You can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.
At 3rd level, you choose an archetype that you strive to emulate in your ways of gravity manipulation. Choosing between Collision Soldier, Gravity Knight, Weightless Assassin, & Flux Sentinel. The archetype you choose grants you feats at 3rd level and again at 7th, 10th, 15th, and 18th level.
At 4th level, you can use an action on your turn and expend 1 gravity point to use your gravity to pull or push objects at a distance. You can move your target up to 30 feet towards or away from you in a straight line as long as the target is within 60 feet of you. If your target is an object being worn or carried by an unwilling creature or a creature itself, the target must succeed in a strength saving throw against your gravity save DC. If the target weighs more than your carry weight, nothing happens. If the creature or object impacts a solid surface as result of being pushed or pulled, it takes 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage for every 5 feet after 10.
You may use your gravity aura to directly attack a creature. When applicable add your Strength modifier + Proficiency Bonus to your Gravity attacks.
Cutting Wave. As an action, you can expend 1 gravity point to project your gravity in a way that allows it to cut through matter from a distance causing 1d6 force damage in a 10ft line. Additionally, you can expend an additional number of gravity points up to your proficiency bonus increasing the damage by 1d6 and extending the line by 5 ft. per additional point spent.
Gravity Spikes. As an action, you can expend 1 gravity point to create and project spikes of gravity in a 10-foot radius centered on a point that you can see within 60 feet of you. The spikes impale targets within range dealing 1d6 force damage. Additionally, any creature that ends its turn in the spikes takes 1d4 force damage. These spikes can be projected in mid-air or generated from the ground.
Gravity Vortex. As an action, you can expend 1 gravity point to generate a vortex composed of gravity in a single spot within 60ft that you can see. The vortex has a 10ft radius causing 1d6 force damage. All creatures within the vortex have their speed reduced by 10 ft to a minimum of 5 ft. Additionally, you can choose to expend gravity points not exceeding your proficiency bonus extending the radius by 5 ft and reducing the affected creatures by 10 ft per additional point expended to a minimum of 5 ft.
Gravity Bullet. As an action, you can expend 1 gravity point to fire bullets of gravity from your own body outside your gravity aura. The amount of bullets is equal to points spent. Each bullet auto hits a creature of your choice that you can see within 90ft. Each bullet Deals 1d4 Force damage. After the first bullet, you can use your bonus action to fire 2 more without spending more points.
Ability Score Increase
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.
Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.
Improved Gravity Infusion
At 7th level, gravity infusion now deals 1d8 force damage for each 1 gravity point spent. Again at 17th level, gravity infusion deals 1d10 force damage and additional 1d10 damage for each 1 gravity point spent.
Beginning at 9th level, While a creature is within your gravity aura, you may choose to apply one of the following effects as a bonus action:
You may spend 2 gravity points to force a targeted creature within your aura to make a strength saving throw or be knocked prone. Creatures knocked prone in this way have disadvantage on saving throws against your auras effects.
You may expend any number of gravity points to fling a targeted creature. The target must make a Dexterity saving throw, on a failed save, the creature is thrown 10 feet up in the air per point spent.
You may spend 3 gravity points to force a targeted creature to make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save the creature is restrained by the force of gravity around it for 1 Minute. It cannot move or take any actions, except to remake the saving throw at the end of its turns.
Gravity Aura Improvement
Starting at 11th level, Whenever applying the gravity options to your gravity Aura, you can activate one of the following by expending an additional 3 gravity points:
Heavy Gravity Creatures within the aura must make a Strength saving throw whenever they move or attack. On a failed save, the creature is knocked prone and must use its next turn to stand. Ranged attacks are made at disadvantage and have half normal range.
Light Gravity Creatures within the aura have their jump height and distance doubled, their speed is doubled and may take 1 extra action, reaction, and bonus action per turn. Creatures have advantage on ranged attack rolls. Objects and creatures within the aura weigh half as much as they would normally.
Zero Gravity Creatures within the aura float in place, unable to move without jumping or pushing off of something. Melee attacks are rolled at disadvantage and ranged attacks have advantage.
At 16th level all attacks made against you or allies inside your aura are made with disadvantage.
At 20th Level you can use your action to regain half your Gravity point Maximum. You can't use this feature again until you take a long rest.
