Keyblade Mystic[edit]

The Keyblade[edit]

Keyblades are mysterious weapons the come from the heart. Many Keyblade Masters have wielded these and see them as an important factor to the battle between Darkness and light. Keyblades are known for their ability to open any lock, as well as permanently lock anything shut. Long ago many Keyblade Masters fought a great war with these weapons to claim control over the original X-blade.

The Mystic[edit]

The Keyblade is a powerful weapon fueled by the heart. Some Keyblade Wielder's will take on the power of the Mystic, which focuses on using the intense magical prowess to it's fullest. The spellcasting from a keyblade can be quite versatile and multi purpose.

Creating a Keyblade Mystic[edit]

As you build your Keyblade Mystic, here are questions to consider. How did you get your Keyblade? Did you inherit your Keyblade from someone? If so was it a teacher, or some other Keyblade Master who saw you worthy of inheriting their power? Did your Keyblade come to you on it's own? If so, what was it that made it come to you? Was it at a moment of great need, or an act of courage?

Why choose the power of the mystic with your keyblade over the power of the guardian or warrior? Perhaps you've always been fascinated with magic and this gave you the opportunity to try it out? Perhaps you've already been practicing magic, and this new found power allows you to dive deeper into newfound territories of magic? Or did it just simply feel right?

Were you self taught with the power this weapon holds, or were you trained by a proper master?

Quick Build

You can make a Keyblade Mystic quickly by following these suggestions. First, Charisma should be your highest ability score, followed by Dexterity. Second, choose the Entertainer background. Third, choose Light Crossbow and Explorer's Pack. For your Keyblade Feature choose swift Keyblade.

Preparing and Casting Spells

Preparing and Casting Spells The Keyblade Mystic table shows how many Spell Slots you have to cast your Spells. To cast one of your Keyblade Spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended Spell Slots when you finish a Long Rest.

You prepare the list of Keyblade Spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the Keyblade spell list. When you do so, choose a number of Keyblade Spells equal to your Charisma modifier + your Keyblade Mystic level (minimum of one spell). The Spells must be of a level for which you have Spell Slots.

For example, if you are a 3rd-level Keyblade Mystic, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level Spell Slots. With a Charisma of 14, your list of prepared Spells can include five Spells of 1st or 2nd Level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st level spell Cure Wounds, 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 Keyblade Spells requires time spent in prayer and meditation: at least 1 minute per Spell Level for each spell on your list

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your Spellcasting Ability for your Keyblade Spells, since their power derives from the Strength of your heart. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your Spellcasting Ability.

Additionally, you can use your keyblade as your arcane focus.

Spell save DC = 8 + your Proficiency Bonus + your Charisma modifier

Spell Attack modifier = your Proficiency Bonus + your Charisma modifier

Path Of The Trickster[edit]

Cunning Action

Starting at 3rd Level, your quick thinking and agility allow you to move and act quickly. You can take a Bonus Action on each of your turns in Combat. This action can be used only to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.

Beginning at 10th level, your ability to protect yourself with magic is augmented. You always have the Barrier ability prepared and it does not count against the amount of abilities you can prepare. Additionally, if you cast the Shield Spell using the Barrier ability, the creature who attacked you to trigger it takes 1d6 force damage. You can spend an additional 1 AP to inflict an additional 1d6 force damage this way, to a maximum of 5d6 force damage.


Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or Invisible creature within 10 feet of you.

Spell Mastery

At 18th level, you have achieved such mastery over certain Spells that you can cast them at will. Choose a 1st-level Keyblade spell and a 2nd-level Keyblade spell that you can cast. You can cast those Spells at their lowest level without expending a spell slot when you have them prepared. If you want to cast either spell at a higher level, you must expend a spell slot as normal.

By spending 8 hours in meditation, you can exchange one or both of the Spells you chose for different Spells of the same levels.
