Para-Elementalist[edit]

Double the Elements, Double the Might[edit]

The orc horde approaches the hillside city, waving intimidating flags. The city appears unguarded, except for six people, all in matching robes, standing by the walls. The orcs talk among themselves of their target's seemingly worthless defense. Suddenly, the robed figures attack. They manipulate the area around them, melting the ground to magma, whipping up the winds in the sky, boiling the water nearby. The orcs attempt to make their move on the six oddities, but are swept away by the force of the para-elementalists. The few remaining soldiers retreat, leaving the city to peace. The para-elementalists return the area around them to its former state, leaving all as it should be.

Some primordial beings are gifted with raw elemental power, taken from air, fire, water, or earth. When two of these elements combine, it forms a new para-element: Smoke, ooze, magma, steam, storms, and sand. Para-elementalists manipulate both the para-elements they are gifted with and the two elements from which they are derived.

Creating a Para-Elementalist[edit]

When creating a para-elementalist, ask yourself, how did you acquire your elemental powers, specifically, two that became one? Is it some kind of birthright from two creatures of different elemental strengths? Were you blessed or cursed? Did you pursue the magics yourself? If your origin was not your choice, how do you feel about your powers? Most importantly, what two elements do you draw strength from?

Quick Build

You can make a para-elementalist quickly by following these suggestions. First, Charisma should be your highest ability score, followed by Constitution. Second, choose the noble background. Third, choose a trident, leather armor, and a dungeoneer's pack.

Design Note: This class is technically 6 classes in 1, with a different description for every para-element. However, the class(es) share subclasses, spells, and starting equipment.

Smoke Para-Elementalist[edit]

Smoke para-elementalists combine fire and air. They can slip seamlessly through smogs of their own creation and strike by poisoning the air.

Smoke Affinity[edit]

You can bend smoke to your will to attack. Starting at level 1, you know both the Poison Spray and Create Bonfire cantrips.

Elemental Magic[edit]

The Smoke Para-Elementist table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these 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. Charisma is your spellcasting modifier. You may change the spells you currently have prepared during a long rest. You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your spells.

Predominant Element[edit]

One of your elemental strengths begins to shine over the other. Beginning from level 1, you must choose between fire and air, both detailed below. Your chosen predominant element grants you new features at level 1, 6, 10, 14, and 18.

Clouding Smog[edit]

You can create less harmful smoke to shroud yourself. Starting at level 2, you can cast Fog Cloud a number of times equal to your half your Charisma modifier rounded up (minimum of 1), requiring no components, and without expending a spell slot. You regain the ability to activate this feature once you complete a short or long rest.

Resilient Lungs[edit]

Your para-elemental powers have strengthened your resistance to harmful gasses. Starting at level 3, you are resistant to poison damage from gaseous sources. If you were already resistant, you become immune. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws against becoming Poisoned.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 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.

One with the Smoke[edit]

You have begun to develop natural stealth skills when surrounded by your para-element. Starting at level 7, you are heavily obscured rather than obscured in regard to fogs and smoke, even from magical sources. Whenever you make a melee attack against a creature who is heavily obscured by fog or smoke, you have advantage on the attack roll.

Immolating Smog[edit]

You can ignite the toxic smoke you produce. Starting at level 9, whenever you activate clouding smog, you can choose to instantly end the effect and deal 6d12 + your Charisma modifier fire damage to every creature in the affected area. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Deadly Smoke[edit]

Even your harmless smoke isn't so harmless anymore. Starting at level 11, whenever you activate clouding smog, you can choose to cast Cloudkill instead of Fog Cloud. This counts as a usage of immolating smog. Additionally, you can activate clouding smog a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of 2) before needing rest.

Impervious Lungs[edit]

Your affinity of smoke has made you invulnerable to aerial toxins. Starting at level 13, you are immune to poison damage from gaseous sources, and resistant to poison damage from all other sources. Additionally, you are immune to the Poisoned condition.

Incinerating Smog[edit]

Your smoke is laced with embers and heat. Starting at level 17, whenever you cast Poison Spray, you inflict an additional 1d10 fire damage, regardless of success or failure on the target's saving throw.

Master of Smoke[edit]

You have mastered the para-element of smoke. Starting at level 20, whenever you cast Poison Spray while under the effects of one with the smoke, the attack hits everyone affected by clouding smog and the targets automatically fail their saving throws made to avoid it.

Ooze Para-Elementalist[edit]

Ooze para-elementalists combine earth and water. They can smother their enemies in acidic mud and empower themselves with mire.

Class Features

As a Ooze Para-Elementalist you gain the following class features.

Hit Points

Ooze Affinity[edit]

You can create ooze to attack or defend at will. Starting at level 1, you know both the Acid Splash and Resistance cantrips.

Elemental Magic[edit]

The Ooze Para-Elementist table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these 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. Charisma is your spellcasting modifier. You may change the spells you currently have prepared during a long rest. You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your spells.

Predominant Element[edit]

One of your elemental strengths begins to shine over the other. Beginning from level 1, you must choose between water and earth, both detailed below. Your chosen predominant element grants you new features at level 1, 6, 10, 14, and 18.

Mud Shape[edit]

You can mold ooze as if it were within your hands. Starting at level 2, you have a number of mud shapes equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of 1). You can activate any of these mud shapes:

Ooze Barrage
You fling a volley of corrosive clay at a creature of your choice. As an attack, make a ranged spell attack with a range of 80 feet. On a hit, you deal 1d12 bludgeoning damage + 1d12 acid damage + your Charisma modifier (you choose which damage to add it to). Damage inflicted by this attack is considered magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances and immunities.
Ooze Grip
Your arms are covered in thick layers of mud that ensnare a creature. As an attack, make a melee spell attack against a creature. On a hit, the creature is Grappled, and takes 1d6 acid damage at the end of each of your turns until it escapes.

You regain spent mud shapes after you complete a long rest.

Absorbing Mire[edit]

You can command ooze to rise to absorb impact. Starting at level 3, you can activate this mud shape. Whenever you are hit by an attack, you can make a Constitution saving throw with a DC equal to the enemy's attack roll as a reaction. On a success, you are resistant to 1 type of damage the attack deals. If the attack deals acid damage, you instead take no damage (only from the acid damage) and cannot choose another type.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 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.

Muddied Skin[edit]

You can cover yourself in hard clay to deflect attacks. Starting at level 7, you can activate this mud shape. As a bonus action, you can cast Mage Armor on yourself, requiring no components, but only if you are not wearing armor.

Ooze Step[edit]

You are adapted to walking on muddy terrain. Starting at level 9, you are immune to the effects of difficult terrain, and you can walk on mud or quicksand as if it were solid ground at your walking speed -10.

Landslide[edit]

You can turn the ground to mud and manipulate it to trip up enemies. Starting at level 11, whenever you make a spell attack that knocks the target(s) Prone, you can choose to make them automatically fail their saving throws against the effect, if any, and inflict an additional 2d8 + Charisma modifier acid damage. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Returning Ooze[edit]

You can create aberrations of ooze and use them to attack your foes. Starting at level 13, you can activate this mud shape. Whenever you are targeted by a nonmagical melee attack, you can use your reaction to mimic the attack, changing the damage type to bludgeoning, which is counted as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistances and immunities. If the attack deals more than 1 type of damage, the secondary damage type(s) changes to acid.

Clayman[edit]

You can create a mirror image of mud to ward yourself from deadly attacks. Starting at level 17, whenever you are targeted by an attack that would reduce you to 0 hit points, you can choose instead to drop to 1 hit point and leave behind a figure of ooze in your place, moving 10 feet away in any direction without expending movement as a reaction. At the end of the attacker's turn, the mud figure explodes, releasing mire in a 10-foot radius sphere centered on the figure. Every creature in that area except for you must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC. On a failure, the target(s) takes 10d6 acid damage, or half as much on a successful one. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Master of Ooze[edit]

You have mastered the para-element of ooze. Starting at level 20, you have a number of mud shapes equal to your Charisma modifier + 2 (minimum of 2). Additionally, you can expend 2 mud shapes to cast Acid Arrow as a level 7 spell, requiring no components, as an attack.

Hot Spot[edit]

You can melt the ground into boiling magma. Starting at level 2, you have a number of hot spots equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of 1). Whenever you create a hot spot, you choose a creature within 60 feet. The area in a 10-foot radius circle melts away into a pool of lava. Every creature in that area must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC. On a failed save, the target(s) takes 3d8 fire damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one. The hot spot lasts 1 minute before it looses its heat. You regain spent hot spots after you complete a long rest.

Igneous Resilience[edit]

You can cover yourself in volcanic stone to absorb impacts. Starting at level 3, you can expend a spell slot of level 1-9 (provided that you have one of that level) and cast False Life on yourself, requiring no material components. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 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.

Lava Fissure[edit]

You can melt a deeper section of ground and force your foes in. Starting at level 7, whenever you create a hot spot, you can choose to make it a pit. In addition to the damages of the attack, affected creatures fall 10 feet into the fissure. A creature can exit the pit by expending 20 feet of its movement or by flying out. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Hardening Magma[edit]

You can exert your will on molten rock to return it to its solid state. Starting at level 9, whenever you create a hot spot, you can make a bonus action to harden the magma and trap creatures inside. Every creature in the area of the hot spot that failed its last saving throw against damage is Restrained. At the start of each of the target(s)'s turns, they may make a Strength saving throw against your spell save DC. On a success, the creature breaks free of the volcanic glass. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Volcanic Volleys[edit]

Your magma-bending powers grow stronger. Starting at level 11, the damage of your hot spots increases to 5d8. Additionally, whenever you cast Produce Flame, you can cast the attacking portion of the spell from any active hot spot instead of yourself.

Lava Tendrils[edit]

You can manipulate magma into squirming tendrils. Starting at level 13, you can expend 2 uses of hot spot to cast Black Tentacles requiring no material components and without expending a spell slot, however, the damage is changed from bludgeoning to fire.

Semisolid Rock[edit]

You can release an erupting wall of lava from the earth to defend yourself. Starting at level 17, whenever you are hit with an attack, you can use your reaction to expend 1 use of hot spot. Roll 5d8. You reduce the damage you take from the attack by the result rolled, and inflict that damage + your Charisma modifier as fire damage to the attacker. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

Master of Magma[edit]

You have mastered the para-element of magma. Starting at level 20, you have a number of hot spots equal to your Charisma modifier + 1 (minimum of 2). Additionally, whenever one of your hot spots expires (and it is not as a result of hardening magma), it automatically activates volcanic volleys to cast the attacking portion of Produce Flame; you choose the target (if any are available).

Steam Spray[edit]

You can release steam from your hands to heal or harm. Starting at level 2, you have a number of steam sprays equal to double your Charisma modifier (minimum of 2). By expending a use, can choose to produce scalding steam. Choose a creature within 60 feet and make a ranged spell attack against them. On a hit, you deal 2d10 + your Charisma modifier fire damage. Alternatively, you can produce healing steam. Choose a creature within 60 feet. The target regains 1d8 + your Charisma modifier hit points. This healing has no effect on undead or constructs. You regain all used steam sprays once you complete a long rest.

Flowing Vapor[edit]

Your movement is as smooth as rising steam. Starting at level 3, whenever you are not wearing armor, your movement speed increases by 10 feet.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 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.

Boiling Touch[edit]

Your skin is like a hot kettle. Starting at level 7, whenever you are targeted by a melee attack, you can expend a use of steam spray to deal 1d10 + your Charisma modifier fire damage to the attacker, but only if you are not wearing armor.

Steam Cloud[edit]

Your produced vapor can cover a larger area. Starting at level 9, whenever you produce a steam spray, you can expend any number of additional uses (provided that you have that many uses) to target that many additional creatures as a part of the same action. You cannot activate different effects on different creatures with this feature, only attacking or healing. You also cannot target a single creature with multiple steam sprays.

Vigorous Vapors[edit]

Your manipulations of steam clouds become stronger. Starting at level 11, whenever you produce a steam spray, your attack deals 4d10 + your Charisma modifier fire damage, and your healing recovers 2d8 + your Charisma modifier hit points.

Soothing Clouds[edit]

Your healing vapors grow more potent. Starting at level 13, whenever you produce a steam spray to heal a creature, you can choose to put that creature under the effects of Lesser Restoration, in addition to the regained hit points. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a short or long rest.

Steaming Eruption[edit]

You can create a giant cloud of scalding steam or healing vapor. Starting at level 17, as an action, you can activate this feature. You can choose to cast either Mass Cure Wounds or Cloudkill, however, the damage is changed from poison to fire. Neither of these spells require components or slots. You regain the ability to activate this feature after you complete a long rest.

Master of Steam[edit]

You have mastered the para-element of steam. Starting at level 20, whenever you activate soothing clouds, the target is under the effects of Greater Restoration or Lesser Restoration, depending on what effects they are under.
