Kitsune "Fox Spirit"[edit]

Kitsune "Fox Spirit"[edit]

Kitsune can very well be among us, most times it's hard to tell if they are though because of their mischievous nature and extreme cunning. Kitsune have innate magic within their very being that causes them to crave thrills and excitement. Whether they cure that craving with pranks, bloodshed, or aiding allies all differs on the Kitsune. They use their Fox Fire and innate illusion magic to deal physical and psychological damage to foes while also being able to imbue their weapon of choice with that innate magic.

Creating a Kitsune[edit]

When creating a Kitsune try to imagine what kind of Kitsune you want to be. Do you want to deal a lot of damage, be stealthy and use your ability's to trick others? Or, do you want to focus more on supporting your allies, using your skills in persuasion and innate ability to tune into others emotions for good? Maybe you don't want to be entirely one or the other. Either way you want to hone your skills to gain power and become the fully powerful Fox Spirit you know you can become. Ask yourself why you follow Inari, goddess of foxes, of fertility, agriculture and industry, of general prosperity and worldly success. Do you agree with her ways of gaining success through helping others and doing good? Or, maybe you think she's too soft and are a bit colder... Maybe even a bit harsh at times? Take into consideration why you left to be alone as well, was it because you don't care for the now skittish and cramped Kitsune lifestyle? Or maybe was it you were forced to do this for one reason or another? Now that you've considered all of that, what kind of Kitsune are you?

Spellcasting[edit]

Starting at 1st level you gain the ability to cast spells. If you did not take the Kitsune 2nd Variant race, you gain the ability to create a pale blue ghostly fire that acts similar to that of the produce flamecantrip.

Cantrips

At 1st level, you know any two cantrips of your choice from the Kitsune Spell List. You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Kitsune table.

Spell Slots

The Kitsune table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these Kitsune 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.

For example, if you know the 1st-level spell Burning Hands and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast Burning Hands using either slot.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

You know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the Kitsune Spell List.

The Spells Known column of the Kitsune table shows when you learn more Kitsune spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For instance, when you reach 3rd level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Kitsune spells you know and replace it with another spell from the Kitsune spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Spellcasting Ability

Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your Kitsune spells, since your magic draws upon your devotion and attunement to nature. You use your Wisdom whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a Kitsune spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Fourth Tail

At 6th level you gain an ability depending on your chosen Archetype.
