Huntsmen/Huntress[edit]

This is an alternative to the Huntsmen Class based off of the one already built at this address https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Huntsman_(5e_Class). With a grunt of excitement and fury, the human swings his blade of his weapon through the body of a dark creature of Grimm, and in the same motion raising it into a crossbow like form to shoot at the hordes still approaching the otherwise defenseless village in his protection. With little effort, the tabaxi raises a field of aura, deflecting each incoming projectile with grace and precision, continuing her escape as hardly a care of the chasing guards. After a tireless night, the dragonborn shouts in glee as she beholds her new creation in its final form - a chainsaw that doubles as a lance with attached crossbow. Huntsmen and Huntresses are skilled fighters trained to use their mind and soul as much as their body to combat the force of darkness. They protect themselves with their own life force, extending from them as an aura of power and protection. Their minds are learned in engineer and tactics, and each wield a unique multi-form weapon of their own design and make.

Huntsmen typically learn their craft from an academy or from another huntsman. After they have completed their training, they are often sent out into the wilderness to hunt monsters. The hunting of monsters by huntsmen and the protection they provide to cities has led to countless stories of how huntsmen have bravely protected civilization. These stories and many other things inspire people to become huntsmen from all walks of life. These huntsmen have also been known to wield transforming weapons that have increasingly become more and more advanced throughout the ages.

Specialized Weapon[edit]

When you become a Huntsmen at 1st level, you may craft a specialized weapon, unique to your own construction. You may select up to two weapons in your possession to base the design on and build with; the specialized weapon will take on the properties of each, including magical properties. The original weapons are destroyed in the process of creating the specialized weapon. The specialized weapon has multiple forms that can be changed as a bonus action: one easily transportable "sheathed" form and up to two weapon forms that each take on the properties of one of the component weapons. If any component of the specialized weapon has the Heavy property, the specialized weapon has the Heavy property in all its forms and cannot have the Thrown and Finesse properties. Because of the uniqueness of the weapon, no one besides the creator may add their proficiency bonus to the specialized weapon on attack rolls.

Using Smith or tinker tools, you may spend a day and an amount of gold equal to half the original price of the weapon to make modifications to the specialized weapon. Once you make a modification, you cannot make another until you gain another level of Huntsmen. When you make a modification, you may choose one of the following effects:

  • Add or remove a weapon property from one form of the specialized weapon
  • Change the damage type of one form of the specialized weapon between slashing, piercing, and bludgeoning, add an extra D4 Aura (Force), Fire, Cold or Lightning Damage
  • If a form of the specialized weapon has the ammunition property, you may craft 20 special ammunition that deal your choice of slashing, piercing, bludgeoning, fire, cold, poison, or lightning damage
  • If your weapon is an instrument its starting damage is 1D6 thunder upon leveling up you can increase this this to a max of 2D6 before level 10. If this is not the weapon’s primary form or your semblance does not have a sound (thunder) component you will have to spend 1 AP to attack with its instrument form. The weapon’s attack will require the enemy to make saves to be made instead of you making ranged attacks. Depending on the type of instrument Weapon’s range will either be a cone of 30 feet or a dome with a 10 – 15-foot radius

Upon reaching 10 levels of Huntsmen, you may make new modifications to your specialized weapon:

  • You may replace one form of the specialized weapon with another. This weapon is destroyed upon modification and you do not regain the weapon used to make the replaced form
  • You may now change the damage type to your choice of piercing, bludgeoning, slashing, fire, cold, poison, or lightning damage add an extra D4 Aura (Force), Fire, Cold or Lightning Damage or upgrade it to 1D6 Aura Damage. Aura damage is equivalent to force damage.
  • It is the maximum Force, Fire, Cold or Lightning Damage it can do.
  • If you have magical talent, you may enchant your specialized weapon, making it magical and giving a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls (max 3)
  • Instrumental weapons deal maximum thunder damage. It can deal is now increased to 4d6, though you still have to go through the process of upgrading you weapon at the rate of 1d6 per level to reach this max

Upon reaching 17th level, you may make new modifications to your specialized weapon. In addition, the restriction on having a specialized weapon with both the heavy and finesse/thrown properties is lifted:

  • Increase the damage dice of a form of your specialized weapon, from 1d4 to 1d6, 1d6 to 1d8, 1d8 to 1d10, 1d10 to 1d12, 1d12 to 2d8
  • Craft special ammunition or change the damage type of one form of your specialized weapon to any damage type
  • Add an addition weapon form to your specialized weapon, up to three weapon forms (four if you have taken the Damage Makes you Stronger Semblance and kept the gauntlet forms)
  • Enchant the weapon permanently to be able to store 6 spell slots worth of spells. The spell must be cast into the weapon upon modification, and when released as an action, it retains all the qualities it had upon casting, such as DC and spell level. Casting a spell out of the weapon via this modification expends no spell slots of the character though it does spend them on the weapon, but requires attunement.
  • If your weapon is an instrument you can increase the weapon’s thunder damage die from a D6 to a D8, the maximum damage it can deal is now 4D8 instead of 4D6.

Clever players and tinkerous characters may come up with more bizarre machinations than listed here that they may wish to modify their weapon with. DMs should consider any such modifications with care, and make more unorthodox modifications more difficult to achieve. If desired a DM may have the character make an Intelligence check to design the modification and/or a Dexterity check to craft it, with a DC based on the unorthodoxy and complexity of the modification, or may require specific materials not available for normal purchase. Generally, these unorthodox modifications should provide no direct combat advantage, (such as a snack compartment, or parts that glow in darkness) or at least not more than modifications available for a given level. Non-weapon items may be used as modifications, giving the specialized weapon a new form, not limited by the number of weapon forms available. These items are destroyed upon modification.

Aura[edit]

Aura is an element less magical force that resides in all living things. When used in its pure state it is force damage, though if the wielder has a special semblance or other skills or techniques they can change the elemental nature of their Aura to any other they choose.

Aura Points[edit]

You gain 2 aura points at 1st level and gain more each level according to Aura Points column in Table: The Huntsmen. Your total Aura Points equals the points you get from your Huntsmen Level plus your Intelligence Modifier. On a short rest, recover spent Aura Points equal to 1D4 + your Con mod. You recover all spent aura points upon completing a long rest. You start knowing two such features: Protective Aura and Force Field. You gain more features as you gain more levels of Huntsmen.

Semblance[edit]

Damage Makes you Stronger[edit]

All of your training has honed you into something powerful. A wall of pure muscle that can withstand nearly any attack, and dish it back ten-fold.

Fist of Fury

(ONLY APLIES if you did not take Brawler or Martial Arts as your fighting style.) At 3rd level, your unarmed attacks deal 1d6 bludgeoning damage at 3rd level, 1d8 bludgeoning damage at 10th level, and 1d10 bludgeoning damage at 17th level. Your unarmed strikes count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. You may now make a new modification to your specialized weapon, giving it the "gauntlet" property.

You choose whether an attack uses the weapon's damage or unarmed damage.

Damage Return

Nullifier

Weapon Momentum

At 15th level, you learn to use your speed to utilize even the most cumbersome of weapons. You may use weapons with the two-handed property in one hand at disadvantage. When you wield a weapon with the versatile property in one hand, you may spend 2 Aura Points to treat it as being used two-handed for damage purposes. If you are size small, you no longer have disadvantage for using heavy weapons. Additionally, the limitation on your specialized weapon not being able to have the finesse and heavy properties is lifted, allowing you to modify your weapon to be both heavy and finesse.

Flawless Stance

At 18th level, you become extremely hard to fight due to your uncanny stance. When a creature you can see or hear attacks you, you can use your reaction to make attacks from that creature have disadvantage when attacking you.

The glyphs are solid disks, five feet across, and can support weight up to your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1) x100lbs each and have a duration of 1 minute. Their form is usually of symbolic significance. Once glyphs are placed, they remain stationary until dismissed or the duration ends. As a bonus action, you can dismiss any number of glyphs, and reform the same number of glyphs elsewhere, but this does not increase the duration of the glyphs. At 10th level, your airstep glyphs produce their own gravity. While a creature or object is on an airstep glyph, they are held to the surface as if gravity was directed into the glyph.

Glyph of Capture

At 7th level, you may attempt to use your glyphs to bind a creature in place that is within 60 feet of you. As an action, you may spend an aura point to form glyphs around a target's lower limbs. The target may attempt a DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier Dexterity saving throw to not have their movement speed reduced to 0. The glyphs take concentration to maintain, and can last a maximum of 1 minute. Once immobilized by this effect, the creature may spend an action to attempt a DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier Strength saving throw to escape. Once a creature is immobilized, you may spend an aura point as an action to restrain them as well. You regain use of this feature after you finish a short or long rest. Glyph of Speed At 11th level, you can use your glyphs to affect the timescale of those within them. You may expend 3 Aura Points to cast the haste spell without material components once using this feature and regain the ability to do so after you finish a long rest. Your spellcasting modifier is Intelligence for this spell, and this glyph takes concentration to maintain.

Ice Shell

At 15th level, you can use your glyphs to protect you and others from the most treacherous of harms. As a reaction, you may spend 4 Aura Points to generate a protective shell of ice around you and any creatures within a 10-foot sphere of you. An unwilling creature may make a DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier Strength saving throw to avoid becoming trapped inside. Any creatures within the ice shell are paralyzed while the shell is in effect. While the ice shell is in effect, any damage that a creature inside would take is taken by the ice shell, except psychic damage. The ice shell has hit points equal to your Intelligence score x 10. The ice shell is immune to cold, poison, and psychic damage, resists piercing and slashing damage, and is vulnerable to bludgeoning, fire, radiant and thunder damage. In normal heat, the ice shell loses 6 hit points per minute. In extreme heat, it loses 6 hit points per round. When the Ice Shell is destroyed, any excess damage is transferred to the caster, and all creatures are no longer paralyzed. While paralyzed, you may use an action to end this effect.

Glyph of Summoning

At 18th level, you gain the ability to conjure reconstructions of defeated foes. As an action, you may conjure a magical reconstruction of any creature you have personally defeated in the past for 7 Aura Points. The creature's CR must not exceed half your level rounded down. The creature uses its normal stat block, but its type changes to construct, it cannot cast spells, and its Intelligence, Charisma, and Wisdom scores are reduced to 2. You have complete control over the conjured creature, willing it to take actions. The conjured creature acts on its own initiative count. The construct lasts for one minute or until its hit points are reduced to zero. You regain use of this feature after you finish a short or long rest.



Polarity[edit]

You have learned your semblance allows you to manipulate metal objects.

Change Trajectory

At 3rd level, When you are attacked with a metal weapon, either melee or ranged and the enemy’s attack roll beats your AC; you can spend any number of Aura Points and add that amount to your AC. If your AC is now higher than what they rolled you use Polarity to change the trajectory of the attack.

Attract or Throw Item

As a attack, you can use a metal item or an item with a metal component that is small to large in your line of sight. The max weight you can lift with this is 250lbs in 30 feet of you. You can Spend 1 Aura Point to use your Polarity to pull it to you or make a ranged attack with it against an enemy. For every 50lbs over 150lbs Spend an additional AP. If the item is a weapon it will deal its Normal Weapon Damage 1D, the type of damage is the weapon’s damage type (EX: Longsword 1D8 Slashing). If the item is any type of random assorted object or a piece of machinery or a tool it deals damage based off this information. 0.5lbs – 5lbs (1D4) / 6lbs – 10lbs (2D4) / 11lbs – 50lbs (1D6) / 51lbs – 100lbs (1D8) / 101lbs – 150lbs (2D6) / 151lbs – 200lbs (1D10) / 201lbs – 250lbs (2D8)

If you are disarmed by a spell, attack, etc. you can spend 1 AP to use this skill to pull your weapon back to you if it is metal or part of it is metal.

Magnetic Push

At 7rd level, as a bonus action after you making contact with an enemy (melee attacks dealt or received count) you can Spend 2 AP to use your Polarity to Push the creature up to 15 feet away. This can be in any direction that is in front of you. The enemy has to make a strength save against a DC of 8 + your Dex Mod + Proficiency Bonus. This does NOT provoke attacks of opportunity.

7th Level

If an ally in 30 feet of you in your flied of view is being attacked you can use your reaction and Spend 2 AP to move them up to 15 feet in any direction, as long as they are wearing something metal. This does NOT provoke an attack of opportunity, because the enemy can’t anticipate it.

11th level

You are now more proficient with moving multiple target at once with your Polarity. You can now move up to 3 items at once with Attract or Throw Item you have to spend an Aura Point for each additional item after the first one. Though if you use three items to attack an opponent each one after the first has disadvantage and you are limited to a max of 100 – 150lbs if you are controlling more than one.

15th Level

At this Point you have learned how to create a Magnetic shield to protect you and others next you from damage from damage.

Magnet Field

All ranged attacks against you and your allies inside the Magnet Field with metal projectiles have their damage halved (can’t go low than 1). You can spend an additional Aura Point every time a metal melee weapon is used for an attack within the Magnet Field and that attack has disadvantage. When things are looking dire and you are in need of a quick opening you can unleash a wild Magnet is repulsion force.

EMP

At 18th level, You can Spend 6 Aura Points and unleash a wild EMP that repels all Ranged, Projectile and Melee attacks that contain metal for one turn.

On a failed throw they are pushed out side of the 20-foot Radius, take 2D6 bludgeoning damage and cannot reenter without making another STR save.

If your allies have been with you long enough to know how you fight, they will see the EMP coming and get advantage on the STR save. When you use this skill, it is the ONLY ATTACK you can make this turn. Your uses for this skill are your Intelligence Modifier. You regain all uses after a long rest.
