Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, 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.

In addition, you can choose a member of the same race as yours, or a member from a hybrid race (like a half-elf if you are an elf), to share one of your exalted aspects. The target must be within 30 feet of you, and the aspect keeps manifested on the target until your next rest.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier, being unable to do it again until you finish a long rest.
