Mastery of Will
Nen is a technique that allows a living being to use and manipulate their own life energy (known as aura). Transmuters are unique in the use of nen because they are able to manipulate the properties of their aura to replicate certain effects. (E.g. Lightning).

The word "Nen" can also be used in conversation to refer to aura). Your nen is represented by your amount of Aura Points which the maximum is determined by your level in Transmuter. You spend aura points in order to fuel various Nen features. Running out of Aura points results in your life force being drained further than your limitations causing you to take Xd4 damage with the X being aura points you expend at 0. As a Transmuter, you can convert your Aura create various effects. (Similar to Monks Ki). You can regain all of your Aura points from a Long or short rest, but you must spend at least 30 minutes of that time meditating.

- +30 at level 20
Beginning at 6th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.
At 6th level, your control over the use of nen allows you to exceed your mental and physical control allowing you to gain the Uncanny Dodge ability and at 10th level, you gain advantage on single target spell saving throw.

This ability lasts for 1 minute and you must maintain concentration.
Beginning at 20th level, during combat or when you roll for initiative and have less than a quarter of your maximum Aura points, you regain 3 aura points per turn for 4 turns. After using Nen mastery, you must wait to complete a long rest to use this ability again.

In this state, you cannot use the offensive abilities of Godspeed and you can use an action to disable this state. (Example: 45 Move speed (Mobile Feat) x 4 (Godspeed) = 180 x 2 = 360 x 2 = 720 Feet per 6 Seconds or 80 MPH). In this state, you appear to others as a Flash of lightning.
Additionally, you can expend 20 of your Aura points to force all your aura into your palms. Doing this allows you to fire a huge explosion of lightning in a line to deal massive damage to a single target causing them to take 10d10 + 10 lightning damage to the target enemy. (Range 300 feet). The target must succeed a Dexterity saving throw or become paralyzed until your next turn. Godspeed can be used 2 times before the user must complete a short or long rest to be able to activate this ability again due to the immense toll it takes on the body.
When you activate Godspeed, your body starts to intensely become covered in arcs of lightning causing your body to have a blue outline. This causes your hair to stand up and have a very apparent blue tint as your lightning aura is covering your entire body.
- Godspeed (Kanmaru) Mastery
