Ninja, 2nd Variant (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Based on the shinobi from the popular anime/manga/game franchise Naruto, the ninja is a class with a high degree of versatility. The class is meant to be a standalone that takes its inspiration from a few classes. This class also gives you the power to choose your path along the way without subclasses. Whether it's taijutsu and opening the gates, sending enemies flying with jutsu, augmenting your weapons for big strikes, or subtly taking down your foes with visual prowess, this class has something for almost everyone.
Creating a Ninja
- Quick Build
You can make a ninja quickly by following these suggestions. First, Constitution should be your highest ability score, followed by Intelligence. Second, choose the Sage or the Urchin background. Third, choose Acrobatics and Stealth as your skills.
As a Ninja you gain the following class features.
- Hit Points
You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your background:
The chakra has become a form of vital energy that all individuals produce to some extent. The energy circulates throughout the body in a network called the Chakra Pathway System, which is similar to the cardiovascular system. Certain groups, such as the shinobi, have learned to generate more chakra and release it out of their bodies through pressure points called tenketsu in order to perform jutsu.
You roll a d20, whatever your number, that is your affinity with a certain type of chakra. You have a Kekkai Genkai, which basically says that you were born with affinity for two different types of chakra.Your Rescue CD is 8 + Intelligence + your proficiency bonus, all Jutsu will declare what they are or save or spell attack. Jutsu, you must be able to move your hands without your hands moving, you can not signal to use your Jutsu. All Jutsu take action to use unless otherwise noted. When you roll to your affinity with the chakras, you gain damage to that chakra at level 1. You gain an extra damage d4, the dice increases by one at levels 4 (2d4), 12 (3d4), 20 (4d4).
|4,8,12,16 or 20||You choose a kekkei genkai.|
Kekkai Genkai is special because when you are born you have a natural affinity for two types of chakras that combine to make a younger Jutsu style, example Storm is the combination of water and lightning allowing the lightning to flow like water. Lets say your first roll was a 16, since you got a kekkai genkai you roll the d20 two more times. You cant get a second kekkai genkai so if any of your next two rolls are a 4,8,12,16,or 20 re-roll them until you get two different chakra natures. There will be a description of each Kekkai Genkai in the Jutsu listing. (people with a Genkai Kekkai are able to use both natures necessary for this as well.)
The jutsu can be used both inside and outside combat. Outside combat, they can be used for half the price, unless they cause damage to a creature or cause a problem. The purpose of the jutsu is to use them for the sake of the party, not just as a weapon. Examples being, lighting a fire with fire jutsu, or erasing a burning building with jutsu water.
At 1st level you are trained in melee combat. When you use your attack action and are unarmed, you roll 1d4 for unarmed attacks. At higher levels the damage roll increases by a number indicated below. You can also use Dexterity instead of Strength for unarmed attacks. At 6th level, your unarmed attacks count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to attacks from nonmagical weapons.
At 3rd level you roll 2d4 for unarmed damage.
At 7th level you roll 3d4 for unarmed damage.
At 12th level you roll 4d4 for unarmed damage.
At 16th level you roll 5d4 for unarmed damage.
At 18th level you roll 6d4 for unarmed damage.
At the 20th level you roll 8d4 for unarmed damage.
At 1st level, while you are not wearing armor or using a shield, your movement is increased by 5 feet. If you are wearing armor or carrying a shield, you lose the effects of this feature. This bonus increases at certain levels.

At 12th level your movement is increased by 20 feet.
At 15th level your movement is increased by 25 feet.
At 18th level your movement is increased by 30 feet.
At the 20th level your movement is increased by 35 feet.
At the 1st level, you chose a style. Choose between fire, wind, lightning, and earth, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st and again at 3rd, 6th, 12th, and 16th levels.
Jutsu Basic Ninjutsu
- Basic ability of passive Ninjutsu
As a narrative tool, your character can walk / stand / run on surfaces of non-dangerous terrain and water at a cost of 1 chakra for 30 minutes.
- Shuriken Jutsu
At the 1st level. Chakra 1-3 PC Throws multiple shuriken (up to maximum 3) on target (s) 1 + 2 per chakra. Only the first Shuriken landing receives the Dexterity bonus for damage, additional shuriken does 1d4 + 1, with 60 ft.
- To transform
At the 3rd level, you expend 1 chakra to The PC becomes a non-magical person, creature or object that they have seen before or have a basic idea and is identical to that image, unless they choose not to be. People or creatures should make a perception of DC 17 to know that the character is not what he appears to be. If seen before executing the jutsu, the observer will not need a test. This lasts 2 hours per worn chakra point.
The transformation allows the PC to assume the outward appearance of any character or creature, including size and shape, but the skill values, hp and ac remain the same. The character of the player who becomes an object assumes the characteristics of the object, this does not allow it to function as a vehicle, armor, any type of tool, trap, rope or light source. Example they may be: Chair, Table, Pillow, Blanket (would still be affected by cold) PC can turn into a weapon, however they do not have any of the magic properties of that weapon, your body can do basic damage to a mundane normal weapon, they must spend 1 chakra per attack to maintain the form. At the 6th level, if the transformation is of creature with speed of swimming or speed of flight, the transformation can do it in the normal speed of movement of the character of the player.
At 3rd level, you may expend 5 chakra points, and use your reaction, Twice during combat. This Jutsu can be used at any time during the day. Before you are hit, you can teleport up to 15 feet in any direction. A log or generic object is left in its place, only to disappear moments later, all damage is denied from that singular attack.
- Shadow Clones
At the 5th level, you may expend 2 chakra points to create a shadow clone. You use this jutsu to make a perfect clone of yourself. The clone(s) can appear within a 60ft radius of you. Each clone you make carries the 2 chackra points you gave them + how many extra points you decide to give them. each shadow clone has 5 HP.
The clones have one attack each and can use Jutsu at the same time as you, assuming they have the chakra for it. Clones can be ordered to do something or act on their own, as the character would normally do. If the clone is defeated, you will recover half of the excess chakra within the clone, the initial chakra will be lost. The duration of shadow clones is 12 hours. They are limited to 5 at any time.
Shadow clones have no range limit on how far they can be. A shadow clone has the same character AC, however, if the main body ac was affected by a spell to increase said AC, those effects are not transmitted.
A shadow clone carries a copy of the main body weapon, but do not carry the magical effects next to a base damage bonus. meaning a cloned vorpal sword = a +3 sword in the hand of a clone. When a shadow clone dissipates, the main body receives any acquired knowledge and remembers them as if they were their own experience, as well as levels of exhaustion, but not negative effects like a curse, poison or something like that. This is useful for collecting knowledge.
At 10th level the amount of clones you can produce increases to 10.
At the 8th level, as an action you may expend 10 chakra points to use the Rasengan against 1 creature that is within 5 feet of yourself. The rasengan is a rotating ball of chakra formed and held in the palm of the user's hand. The user places his or her hand on an opponent's body to attack with it. On a successful hit, the rasengan deals 3d6 bludgeoning and 1d8 slashing. The targeted creature must make a strength saving throw of 13 or higher. On a successful save, they are knocked backward 10 feet. On a failed save, they are knocked backward 20 feet, and are knocked prone.
At the 2nd level you learn how to store small objects in scrolls. When storing an item on a parchment, you must have paint to draw the seal. The parchment lasts until the item is summoned from within it or if the parchment is destroyed. This feature requires special scrolls, they can be purchased anywhere a merchant could sell paper, ink and books. Price: 20 gold Weight: 2 pounds Limit: 2 Medium Parchment: Capacity up to 7 Small items Price: 45 Gold Weight: 8 lbs.
Limit: 2 Large Parchment: Supports up to 12 small items or 1 medium item (Tent, Foldable Long Sword, Bow) Price 80 in gold Weight: 15 lbs Limit: 1 Weapon Parchment: Supports up to 15 Shuriken or 15 Kunai can be summoned to deliver as a bonus action.

At 14th level, you can make a second weapon roll and gain access to the Giant Scroll. This parchment can contain 2 large items that do not exceed 30 pounds or, 1 small creature. However, after 10 minutes the creature will suffocate due to lack of oxygen.
