The Sacred Armores are armors that were created by the gods using stardust and blood. They are divided in the subclasses.
-Bronze: The inicial one
-Silver: For high levels
-Gold: For higher levels
The armors are connected with a guardian constellation. Specially, the gold ones are connected with the 12 zodiac signs. Your constellation will give you the Sacred Armor, and nothing can unequip it of you. To unequip the Sacred Armor, you have to dispel it with an Action.
The Divine Armor: When a Knight its in the limit of his power he create a Great Armor called Kamui. This armor has wings with 50ft deslocation. Some actions can only be used whith the armor an exemple is the Special Atack(4).
In the System a knight can use this action 3d4 rounds at the 18th level
With an action you can summon your Sacred Armor, which appears in several parts at your side, automatically connecting to your body. With an action, too, you can dispel your Sacred Armor, which disappears by going to a demiplane, where it will wait for you to call it again. Your Sacred Armor can't break, even with the Wish spell. The power of the cosmos within your constellation is beyond Wish spell power.
Evolution of Armor:
The Sacred Armor of a knight evolves as his power increases. And so your Sacred Armor can evolve from armor level after a specific ritual. The knight must raise his entire cosmos (spend all Cosmo Energy points) to the maximum and bathe the armor with some of his blood (1/3 of life). This ritual requires full care of the knight because his cosmos and vitality are compromised during the process. To evolve the Armor the requirements are:
Bronze to Silver: lvl 6
Silver to Gold: lvl 14
This evolution does not define that the Sacred Armor is composed of a material different from the initial one, but that its power and AC are at the same level of others.
Some of your Cosmo features requires your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature's effects. the saving throw DC is calculated as follows:
- Cosmo-Energy save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier.
Whenever a Knight uses his Cosmo-Energy to deliver an attack, to deal damage with this vital energy he is availing himself of a Special Attack. Due to training, or any other form the Storyteller allows, the character learned to use his or her combined energy to combat technique to hurt the opponent. Each point spent on Special Attack allows you a different technique, however, the Storyteller must know that it is extremely difficult to learn new techniques, so be aware of how many of them the Knight possesses. All damage you do with Special Attack is considered magical bludgeoning, except if the attack says the opposite.
System: Special Attack rolls are based on Dexterity + Special Attack.
The Special Attack is linked to your Armor as Exemple Pegasi Knights: Pegasus Meteor (1), Pegasus Kite(2),Pegasus Tourbillon(3), Big Bang Kite(4).
The Special attack 4 is only used once per long rest.
You add your Dexterity + Proeficiency for all Special Attacks attack rolls, except if the attack says the opposite.
As a knight your Cosmo-Energy guides your blows, allowing powerful energy to destroy your foes. At 1st level you deal 1d4 + Dex for unarmed strikes. At 5th level this increases to 1d6 + dex, 11th into 1d8 + dex and at 17th level into a 1d10 + dex.
The same attack does not work twice; Upon reaching 3rd level, When another creature damages you with a attack after it's first strike, you can use your reaction to roll 1d8 + Dex mod. If the number you roll is greater than the damage inflicted the attack is deflected by your blade or armor and you take no damage. At level 9, it can reduce 1d12 + Dexterity + Constitution. At level 15, it can reduce 2d12 + Constitution + Dexterity.
This Is Not The End
As you are about to lose consciousness in battle, you focus intensely on what you are fighting for. at level 3 Once per Long rest, when you reach 0 hit points, you can roll 1d20. On a result of 17 or higher, your Cosmo invigorates you explosively. You regain 1d10 hit points. For the next 3 turns, your armor gains the attributes of Divine class Armor and you double up all your rolled damage dice.
At the end of your third turn, you fall unconscious regardless of remaining hit points. Once you fall unconscious by any means after using this ability, you take 1d4-1 Exhaustion Points.
You can once per long rest force yourself to do one more action, your constellation guide youself.
Ability Score Increase
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.
You have learned to regain some of your cosmos energy by relaxing your mind and entering in a state of trance. Once per day when you finish a Short Rest, you can choose expended uses of Special Attacks to recover. The Special Attacks uses that you can recover must be of a Special Attack that you gained between 1st and 10th level. You can recover a number of Special Attacks uses equal to your "Knight of the Zodiac" level.
In the 5th, 11th and in the 20th level you gain the ability to do an extra atack when you use the Attack action on your turn. The Special Attack action also counts as an attack action.
Also at 5th level, the cosmos inside you claim the power of your constellation. On your turn, you can use a bonus action to regain hit points equal to 1d12 + your level. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier.
At the 7th level you can use this feature The seventh Sense is a stage of maximum power of the cosmos. as a player you throll 5d4 to know the number of rounds that you can use this feature. When a knight is in this stage your speed increases in 10 ft, you add one more dice to the damage roll (the higher damage dice) and you can sense every move (Passive Perception double). Every proficiency test is add in double.
At the 17th level you learned how to cause critical attacks on your enemies vital points. now when you roll a 19 or 20 damage is considered critical.
When you reach 10th level, you trained enough of your special attacks so you add your proficiency and 1d4 to the attack roll and damage.
At the 13th level, as an evolution of your Seventh Sense you have awakened the eighth path of the cosmos. It now add two dice to the damage and your speed of movement increases in 15ft.
When you hit the 20th level, your constellation will recognize your power. A shimmering aura humanoid will appear to you and bless you, this aura is the physical representation of the cosmos of your constellation. Now, whenever you make a death saving throw, you can add your proficiency bonus to the test.
