Being a Planebreaker[edit]

The elf fell to the ground, a great injury oozing blood from his side. His foe, a barbarian, saw his chance and raised his axe high. Sunlight glanced off the dented edge as what was surely the elf's death descended upon him. Before the fatal blow could land, there was a great flash of light. The axe struck the ground, it's target gone. Meanwhile, within the Ethereal Plane, the elf took a few moments to recover before returning to fight.

The criminal ran. Despite his pursuers numbers and intent, they had no really hope of catching him. Soon, he had far outpaced them and had long since vanished amidst the trees. He lean again a tree to catch his breath, but a smile shone upon his face. They'd lost him, and he knew it. After a moment, he push away from the tree, ready to move on. At that moment, an arrow appeared from nowhere, pinning the man's sleeve to the tree. He look in panic at the arrow, then the human who seemed to have walked out of a tree. The archer smiled. With the ability to travel the planes, there was no where the criminal could run.

A Planebreaker is a quite versatile class. They are very mobile, especially when it comes to avoiding obstacles. While good fighters, they shine in using the planes to support allies and torment their foes. Because, when you wield the power of the plane itself, why wouldn't you?

Can only be used once per long rest.

Superior Demiplane[edit]

When you pick this subclass You can conjure a portal in an unoccupied space you can see within range linking to a newly-created demiplane of your design. The portal is a circular opening, which you can make 5 to 30 feet in diameter. You can orient the portal in any direction you choose. You can choose for the portal to remain permanently open, for the portal to open when a creature speaks a command word, or for the portal to open or a limited kind of creature. In the latter case, the portal opens when a creature of a certain type (which can be as limited as a subtype) or alignment, or carrying a specific item, comes within 10 feet of the portal. If the portal is not permanently open, it opens or 1 minute when your conditions are fulfilled.

Your demiplane is a 2-mile radius sphere, which you can fill with space or remain empty as you so choose. The borders of the demiplane are either an impenetrable barrier, or the demiplane itself wraps around. You can create however much earth, stone, wood, common metals, or similar materials or vegetable matter you want in whatever form you specify, which can include artificial structures. You decide the weather patterns and temperature of the demiplane, and whether or not they change. As an action while on your demiplane, you can cast control water, control weather, and move earth at will, without expending a spell slot or any components. When you cast move earth or control weather this way, the casting time is only 1 action. This use of move earth can manipulate stone, metals, and ores, not just earth.

Each time you cast this spell, you can create a new demiplane, or open a new portal to a demiplane you created with a previous casting of this spell. Additionally, if you know the nature and contents of a demiplane created by a casting of this spell by another creature, you can have the portal connect to its demiplane instead.

Doomwalker[edit]

Aura of Planar Doom[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, using your newfound knowledge of planar forces you may compress an amount of force around you and have it used as a disruptive weapon in an area surrounding you. You gain a 20ft aura, centered on you, The area within this aura becomes difficult terrain all creatures who enter the cube must make a dexterity saving through DC 18 and take 1d4 Thunder damage. On a Failure they become restrained as the Gravity of the Planar energies pulls them in, closer towards the center, Each round a Creature is trapped they take 1d4 Thunder damage and are pulled 5ft closer to you . On success they are flung out of the aura. Taking 1d4 Thunder damage for every 5ft of aura they pass through, if they have not been caught in your wake and were merely entering, they pushed back 10ft, and are knocked prone.

Upon reaching 8th Level, this Aura increases to 30ft and thunder damage is increased from 1d4 to 1d6.

Hands of Ruin[edit]

Starting at 5th level, you have gained planar knowledge of how to manipulate planar forces into hands of force to bring ruin to those that you wish.

When you successfully hit a creature with an attack you may expend your bonus action to summon hands of planar force to restrain the creature you hit; forcing it to make a DC 16 Strength Saving Throw or be restrained. While restrained they also take 1d6 force damage each turn until they succeed the saving throw. This effect takes place at the start of each of the creature's turns. Upon succeeding its saving throw it takes the amount of damage per rounds failed. Example if the creature was restrained for 4 rounds they take 4d6 damage when they succeed their saving throw.

They must use their action each turn trying to escape the planar hands. You may use this ability up to your Intelligence modifier per long rest.

Planar Destruction[edit]

Starting at 10th level, you gain knowledge of planar forces that can bring about the destruction of structures and lives.

Fissures. Fissures open throughout the spell's area at the start of your next turn after you cast the spell. A total of 1d6 such fissures open in locations chosen by the DM. Each is 1d10 x 10 feet deep, 10 feet wide, and extends from one edge of the spell's area to the opposite side. A creature standing on a spot where a fissure opens must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or fall in. A creature that successfully saves moves with the fissure's edge as it opens. A fissure that opens beneath a structure causes it to automatically collapse (see below).

Structures. The tremor deals 50 bludgeoning damage to any structure in contact with the ground in the area when you cast the spell and at the start of each of your turns until the spell ends. If a structure drops to 0 hit points, it collapses and potentially damages nearby creatures. A creature within half the distance of a structure's height must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, the creature takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage, is knocked prone, and is buried in the rubble, requiring a DC 20 Strength (Athletics) check as an action to escape. The DM can adjust the DC higher or lower, depending on the nature of the rubble. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage and doesn't fall prone or become buried.

May only be used once per long rest.

Harbinger of Armageddon[edit]

Starting at 17th level, all your life has led to the acquisition of Planar Knowledge. This is what you have researched and lived for. The Knowledge of Planar Forces flow through your veins, ready to be manipulated and manifested into a weapon of Armageddon.

You create a storm of Armageddon. You are able to cast the Spell Storm of Vengeance and pull from the plane you are currently in a Planar Gate. This Gate disappears in two turns. Roll a 1d20 for it's position on the turn order. At the end of its second turn the Gate evaporates from existence returning its energies back into the plane it was pulled from.

This ability can only be used once per long rest.
