Kaleido[edit]

There are times when the party needs someone specific... A fighter to act as a front line, to cut down your enemies. A monk when regular weaponry just isn't going to cut it. A Paladin to defend your allies from the threats. A ranger to provide support from a distance with their bow. A sorcerer or wizard to provide wide array of different magic for the situation at hand. A cleric to heal wounded allies. A druid to become one with nature itself. A bard to give everyone a good time.

A kaleido is a spellcaster, but not bound by their choice, they have obtained the magic to gain a small piece of all the other classes. By installing it into themselves, they transform into it for a limited time. Not as a multi-class, but an actual change in class, changing their weaponry and armor to suit the new class that they have become. As a jack of all trades, they are a master of none. They lack the full abilities of the actual classes, but they are able to make up for it with versatility.

Ever Changing[edit]

Like a kaleidoscope, by rotating just slightly, they can change to have a completely different array of abilities. By expending their magic, a kaleido can change their proficiencies and bolster themselves using magic to fit the class they changed into more. To do this, they need very high intellect, and the ability to learn each individual race that they decide to change into.

Spellcasting[edit]

As a learner of magic, you learn spells and input them into your kaleid.

Cantrips

At 1st level, you can prepare up to your proficiency modifier number of cantrips of your choice from any spell list. You may change this list of cantrips when you finish a long rest. However, you can only cast Wizard cantrips while in your base form, unless an Install says otherwise.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Kaleido table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level or higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest. However, you can only cast 1st level or higher spells in the Wizard spell list while in your base form.

You prepare the list of spells that are available for you to cast. To do so, choose a number of spells from your kaleid equal to your Intelligence modifier + your kaleido level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For example. if you're a 3rd-level kaleido, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level spell slots. With an Intelligence of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination, chosen from your kaleid. If you prepare the 1st-level spell magic missile, you can cast it using a 1st-level or a 2nd-level slot. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of spells requires time spent observing your kaleid and memorizing the incantations and gestures you must make to cast the spell: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your kaleido spells. since you learn your spells through dedicated study and memorization. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a kaleido spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one. However, this may change depending on which form you are in.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Ritual Casting

You can cast a kaleido spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell in your kaleid. You don't need to have the spell prepared.

Spellcasting Focus

You can use your kaleid as a spellcasting focus for your kaleido spells. You cannot use a component pouch.

Learning Spells of 1st level and higher

Each time you gain a kaleido level, you can add two spells of your choice to your spellbook. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots, as shown on the Kaleido table. On your adventures, you might find other spells that you can add to your kaleid.

Kaleid[edit]

Your Kaleid is similar to a spellbook. You carry it on you at all times. It is a record of your progress and intellectual breakthroughs you had about the nature of the multiverse.

Copying a Spell into the Kaleid

When you find a spell of 1st level or higher, you can add it to your spellbook if it is of a level for which you have spell slots and if you can spare the time to decipher and copy it. Copying a spell into your kaleid involves reproducing the basic form of the spell, then deciphering the unique system of notation used by the one who wrote it. You must practice the spell until you understand the sounds or gestures required, then transcribe it into your spellbook using your own notation.

For each level of the spell, the process takes 2 hours and costs 50 gp. The cost represents material components you expend as you experiment with the spell to master it, as well as the fine inks you need to record it. Once you have spent this time and money, you can prepare the spell just like your other spells.

Replacing the Kaleid

You can copy a spell from your own kaleid into another book. For example, if you want to make a backup copy of your kaleid. This is just like copying a new spell into your kaleid, but faster and easier, since you understand your own notation and already know how to cast the spell. You need spend only 1 hour and 10 gp for each level of the copied spell. To install a kaleid with the magic that the previous one had, it consumes an additional 50 gp per class installation.

If you lose your kaleid, you can use the same procedure to transcribe the spells that you have prepared into a new kaleid. Filling out the remainder of your kaleid requires you to find new spells to do so, as normal. For this reason, many kaleidos keep backup kaleid in a safe place.

Storage

Your kaleid also functions as a storage. You can put up to your Kaleido level number of weapons, armors, and clothes, each, into the kaleid, to store them into its pages. Ammunition may also be stored inside its pages, but only one quiver with up to 20 of any combination of arrows and bolts. No other type of item may be put inside, and you can take out any of these items as you would a normal item interaction from your bags. The weight is not preserved, and these weapons and armor weigh as much as a piece of paper while inside the kaleid. If the kaleid is destroyed, the items comes out and lands on the ground.

The Kaleid's Appearance

Your kaleid is a unique compilation of spells, with its own decorative flourishes and margin notes. It might be a plain, functional leather volume that you received as a gift from your master, a finely bound gilt-edged tome you found in an ancient library, or even a loose collection of notes scrounged together after you lost your previous kaleid in a mishap. You may additionally have it transform into one of the weapons in your storage as an action. It gains all the properties of the weapon that it is transformed into, including magical ones. But if the transformed kaleid leaves your grasp, it reverts back to its original form of a book.

Install[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, your study proves to be fruitful and you gain a small portion of the other class's powers. Choose two between Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Monk, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer, or Warlock. You install this class into your Kaleid and it is now usable for your Kaleido features.

You can choose an additional 2 classes to install at 6th, 10th and 14th level, and then an additional three at 18th level. The total number of installed classes is shown in the Install column of the Kaleido table.

Class Change[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, using an action, you can have your Kaleid merge with you and grants you the features of that form as described below. You can only stay in this form for 1 minute. You can revert to your base form at any time with no action required by you. Additionally while you're still changed, as a bonus action, you can change into another form that you have Installed. When you change your form or when you revert to normal, you lose all the features that form granted you. Changing this way does not consume a usage of Class Change. Any active features granted by that form, such as the Barbarian Form's Rage, will also instantly end. You can activate Class Change a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus plus your Intelligence modifier. You regain all uses of this feature at the end of a long rest.

When you use a feature of a form with a limited number of uses, the remaining amount transfers to the next time you change back into that form and you regain all uses at the end of a long rest. Also, even though you are in that class's form, you do not count as that class for attuning of magical items.

During the time when you change your class, either by action or bonus action, you can have your Kaleid give you any weapon, equipment, and clothing that it was storing in its pages, and store any number of weapon, equipment and clothing you were wearing inside the Kaleid, up to the maximum it can hold. You can additionally also use this time to change the form of your Kaleid to another weapon that is stored inside. When the duration is over, the Kaleid returns to its normal form as a book.

The duration that you stay in this changed class increases to 10 minutes at 6th level, 1 hour at 10th level, 24 hours at 14th level, and unlimited at 18th level.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 6th, 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.

Multiclass[edit]

Starting at 7th level, when you activate Class Change using an action, or while in Class Change, as a bonus action, you can use one additional usage of Class Change to choose two classes' form to take on and gain both form's features. Your spellcasting is the highest level of the two that allows spellcasting. For example, if you chose Fighter and Sorcerer, you can use your spellslots to cast up to 9th level spells.

However, due to installing two classes into yourself, the time that you can stay in this multiclass state is limited. The duration of Class Change is changed to one minute, and you cannot use your bonus action to change any of the classes.

Starting at 15th level, the duration of having two forms active is increased to one hour and you are able to freely switch one or both as you would for Class Change, switching these do not consume uses of Class Change. Additionally, as an action, by using two uses of Class Change, you can now have three classes's forms active at once. The duration of Class Change is changed to one minute and similarly, you cannot use your bonus action to change any of the classes.

Beauty of Form[edit]

Starting at 20th level, you have gained mastery of all forms, granting you knowledge by experience, and you have been through tough battle granting you great endurance. Your Intelligence and Constitution increase by 4. Your maximum for both score is now 24. Additionally, Class Change no longer requires any action by you to activate nor change form and you no longer consume uses of Class Change to activate it except for Multiclass.

Kaleido Forms[edit]

Barbarian Form[edit]

Primal instincts are installed into you by your kaleid, allowing you to go into a barbarian rage.

Barbarian's Instincts[edit]

When you Class Change into this form, you gain proficiency in shield, simple weapons and martial weapons. While you are not wearing any armor, your Armor Class equals 10 + your Strength modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a shield and still gain this benefit. If your Strength modifier is lower than your Intelligence modifier, it is now equal to with your Intelligence modifier. While these instincts are installed into you, you cannot cast any spells granted by the kaleido class except wizard cantrips while in this form.

Additionally, when you Class Change into this form, you roll an amount of d6 equal to your Kaleido level, then add your kaleido level times your Constitution modifier number, and gain that number of temporary hp. You regain usage of this part of this feature when you finish a long rest.

Rage[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, when you class change into this form, you can enter a rage as a bonus action. You gain the following benefits if you aren't wearing heavy armor.

  • You have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
  • When you make a melee weapon attack using Strength, you gain a bonus of +2 to the damage roll. This increases to +3 at 17th level.
  • You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

If you are able to cast spells, you can't cast them or concentrate on them while raging. Your rage lasts for 1 minute. It ends early if you are knocked unconscious or if your turn ends and you haven't attacked a hostile creature since your last turn or taken damage since then. You can also end your rage on your turn as a bonus action. You can only rage up to half your proficiency bonus number of times rounded up.

You regain all uses of Rage at the end of a long rest.

Each time you use this feature after the first, the DC increases by 5. When you finish a short or long rest, the DC resets to 10.

Starting at 2nd level, you can inspire others through stirring words or music. To do so, you use a bonus action on your turn to choose one creature other than yourself within 60 feet of you who can hear you. That creature gains one Bardic Inspiration die, a d4. Once within the next 10 minutes, the creature can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes. The creature can wait until after it rolls the d20 before deciding to use the Bardic Inspiration die, but must decide before the DM says whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Bardic Inspiration die is rolled, it is lost. A creature can have only one Bardic Inspiration die at a time.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to half your Charisma modifier rounded up (a minimum of once). You regain any expended uses when you finish a long rest. Your Bardic Inspiration die changes when you reach certain levels in this class. The die becomes a d6 at 5th level, a d8 at 9th level, a d10 at 13th level and then a d12 at 17th level.

As an action, you present your holy symbol and speak a prayer censuring the undead. Each undead that can see or hear you within 30 feet of you must make a Wisdom saving throw with DC equal to your Kaleido spell save DC. If the creature fails its saving throw, it is turned for 1 minute or until it takes any damage. A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can, and it can't willingly move to a space within 30 feet of you. It also can't take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there's nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

You can't use this feature on an undead or a construct.

Divine Intervention[edit]

Beginning at 17th level, you can call on your deity to intervene on your behalf when your need is great. Imploring your deity's aid requires you to use your action.

DM chooses the nature of the intervention; the effect of any cleric spell or cleric domain spell would be appropriate. If your deity intervenes, you can't use this feature again for 7 days. Otherwise, you can use it again after you finish a long rest.

A druid's attunement with nature is installed into you, and you gain their powers to become one with it.

Druid's Attunement[edit]

When you Class Change into this form, you gain proficiency in light armor, medium armor and shields, and you cannot wear armor or use shields made of metal. If your Wisdom modifier is lower than your Intelligence modifier, it is now equal to with your Intelligence modifier. Your Kaleid is now considered a Druidic Focus and you can now additionally use Druid Cantrips that you prepared and use your spellslots to cast Druid Spells that you prepared as first level or higher.

Wild Shape[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your action to magically assume the shape of a beast that you have seen before. You can use this feature twice. You can never use Wild Shape than this many times unless you gain a higher maximum from another feature, then you have that number as your maximum number of usages instead. You regain expended uses when you finish a short or long rest. Your kaleido level determines the beasts you can transform into.

  • Starting at 2nd level, you can transform into any beast that has a challenge rating of 1/4 or lower that doesn't have a flying or swimming speed.
  • Starting at 6th level, you can transform into any beast that has a challenge rating of 1/2 or lower that doesn't have a flying speed.
  • Starting at 10th level, you can transform into any beast that has a challenge rating of 1 or lower.

You can stay in a beast shape for a number of hours equal to half your kaleido level (rounded down). You then revert to your normal form unless you expend another use of this feature. You can revert to your normal form earlier by using a bonus action on your turn. You automatically revert if you fall unconscious, drop to 0 hit points, or die. While you are transformed, the following rules apply:

  • Your game statistics are replaced by the statistics of the beast, but you retain your alignment, personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. You also retain all of your skill and saving throw proficiencies, in addition to gaining those of the creature. If the creature has the same proficiency as you and the bonus in its stat block is higher than yours, use the creature's bonus instead of yours. If the creature has any legendary or lair actions, you can't use them.
  • When you transform, you assume the beast's hit points and Hit Dice. When you revert to your normal form, you return to the number of hit points you had before you transformed. However, if you revert as a result of dropping to 0 hit points, any excess damage carries over to your normal form. For example, if you take 10 damage in animal form and have only 1 hit point left, you revert and take 9 damage. As long as the excess damage doesn't reduce your normal form to 0 hit points, you aren't knocked unconscious.
  • You can't cast spells, and your ability to speak or take any action that requires hands is limited to the capabilities of your beast form. Transforming doesn't break your concentration on a spell you've already cast, however, or prevent you from taking actions that are part of a spell, such as call lightning, that you've already cast.
  • You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can't use any of your special senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.
  • You choose whether your equipment falls to the ground in your space, merges into your new form, or is worn by it. Your Kaleid must merge into your new form. Worn equipment functions as normal, but the DM decides whether it is practical for the new form to wear a piece of equipment, based on the creature's shape and size. Your equipment doesn't change size or shape to match the new form, and any equipment that the new form can't wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment that merges with the form has no effect until you leave the form.
Combat Wild Shape[edit]

Starting at 5th level, you gain the ability to use Wild Shape on your turn as a bonus action, rather than as an action. Additionally, while you are transformed by Wild Shape, you can use a bonus action to expend one spell slot to regain 1d8 hit points per level of the spell slot expended.

Primal Strike[edit]
