Planerider (5e Class)

Planerider[edit]

A man is dropping from the sky in the middle of combat with a red dragon. He disappears momentarily, then reappears a moment later surrounded by water, which he hurls at the dragon.

An elf and her companions are backed up against a wall, facing a pair of Galeb Duhr. She concentrates, pulling herself into the Astral Plane, then repositions herself. When she returns, she is behind the elementals and distracts them with her Energy Blaster, allowing her friends to escape.

A crafty gnome has stolen a great treasure from a powerful god. To avoid his wrath, the gnome dives from realm to realm until the trail is lost.

Planeriders are beings with the power to travel between planes, and bring some of it with them.


Natural Traveller[edit]

Planeriders experience a strong desire to travel from a very young age. Staying in one place too long frustrates them. If their desire is extreme enough, their energy will manifest a way for them to become a wanderer in the ultimate sense: a wanderer of worlds.

Creating a Planerider[edit]

What gives your Planerider such a strong desire to travel? How do they plan on using their powers, now that they have them? When they stay in a place, what anchors them?

Planar Forces[edit]

Some of your Planerider features require your target(s) to make a saving throw to resist the features effects. In addition, you will gain access to certain spells as you level up. You require no material components for these spells, but most require you to be wearing your Planerider Suit. The saving throw and Modifier are calculated as follows: Save DC: 8 + Charisma modifier + proficiency bonus // Modifier: Charisma modifier + proficiency bonus

In addition, every plane has associated forces. The damage types of each plane as shown below applies to your other Planerider features.

Water | Acid, Cold
Fire | Fire
Air | Force, Lightning, Thunder
Earth | Bludgeoning/Piercing/Slashing, Force
Shadowfell | Psychic, Necrotic
Feywild | Psychic
Mechanus | Bludgeoning/Piercing/Slashing
Limbo | Force, Psychic
Upper Planes | Radiant
Lower Planes | Necrotic
Astral | Force, Psychic
Ethereal | Force, Psychic
Material | Bludgeoning/Piercing/Slashing

Planerider Suit[edit]

Not so much a physical suit as it is a manifestation of your latent planar abilities, your Planerider Suit is what gives you your features. You can call upon it or dismiss it as an immediate-action, and it will materialize as a perfect fit on your body (over your normal clothes, under cloaks). You gain no benefits from any armor you were wearing while using your Planerider suit. It provides an AC of 12 + Dexterity (this will go up as you gain Planerider levels). The suit provides you with clean air for one hour when necessary, and its air supply refills after a spending a minute with at least your head in contact with fresh air. Depending on the Plane you are in, your suit may provide you with a mobility equal to your walking speed. In the Astral Plane, Ethereal Plane, Plane of Air, Plane of Fire, and the Upper Planes you gain a fly speed. In the Plane of Water and other aquatic planes you gain a swim speed. In the Plane of Earth and other cavernous planes you gain a burrow speed. In the Lower Planes and Mechanus you gain a climbing speed. In Shadowfell and the Feywild your speed doubles. Your suit will provide other Plane-dependent features as you level up. If you are, for any reason, teleported to a plane hostile to your survival, your Planerider suit materializes instantly.

Bayard[edit]

Your main weapon in combat is your bayard. As a bonus action, you can materialize it in your hand and activate it or dismiss it. You can use a full round action to reconfigure it. You start with two configurations, and will gain more as you level up. In addition, your bayard's damage dice increase as you level up. You treat the attack roll as you would a normal weapon, but the damage as you would a spell (i.e., use Dex or Str for the attack roll and add no bonus for the damage roll). Its damage type is typically radiant, but when you summon it or reconfigure it you can make it lightning or the damage type of your current plane instead. You may also use the damage type of your Planar Affinity. It does not benefit from the Extra Attack feature other classes may give you. It's damage is considered magical for overcoming resistance. At level 12 you may use a standard action to reconfigure it instead of a full round action.


Bayard Configuration - Standby

Your bayard is pretty much just a handle in this mode. It can attach to the waist of your Planerider Suit, and it has the effects of a weapon with the Returning property. If you drop your bayard in any other configuration, at the beginning of your next turn it will reconfigure to Standby Configuration, then return to your hand at the beginning of turn after.


Bayard Configuration - Energy Sword

Your bayard produces a long, glowing blade from its head. It has the finesse, versatile, and special properties. It does 1d6 (1d8 versatile) damage, which increases at level 8 (2d6) (2d8 versatile), and level 16 (3d6) (3d8 versatile). While using this configuration in one hand with the other hand free, you gain a +1 shield bonus, increasing to +2 at level 8, and +3 at level 16.


Bayard Configuration - Energy Hook

At level 3, you gain a new configuration for your bayard

Your bayard produces two short blades of energy, forming a triangular head. It has the finesse, light, and special properties. It does 1d4 damage, which increases by at level 8 (1d6), and level 16 (1d8). Once per turn, using this configuration, if you have advantage on your attack roll, you can add 1d6 to the damage dice. This sneak attack damage increases at level 8 (2d6), and level 16 (3d6). Its Earth/Mechanus/Material damage type is slashing.


Bayard Configuration - Energy Blaster

At level 5, you gain a new configuration for your bayard.

Your bayard can take the shape of a rifle. It has a range of 150/600, as well as the heavy, two-handed, and special properties. It requires no ammunition, but rather draws its energy from your connection with planar energy. It does 1d8+1 damage at 5th level, which increases at 8th level (1d8+2), and 16th level (2d8+3). Its Earth/Mechanus/Material damage type is piercing. As a bonus action while using this configuration, you may hide immediately after attacking as long as there is sufficient cover for you to hide.

Interplanar Dip[edit]

You can travel between realms, bringing energy with you. Starting at second level, you can dip into another plane and absorb energy of the plane's type as one action, then return on the next turn and release it as a second action. You can either choose to target one enemy within 50 ft, and make an attack using your Energy Burst Modifier, or you can release it on all enemies in a 10 foot radius, and all targets must make a save against your Planar Forces ability (ability depends on damage, refer to chart). The damage against a single target is 3d8, and the damage against multiple targets is 1d8 each (or half on a successful save). This will go up as you increase in Planerider levels. You can use this feature once, and can use it again after a short rest. At first level, you can only use this feature by traveling to one of the Elemental Planes. If a saving throw is required when leaving a Plane, such as in the Feywild and Shadowfell, you do not need to make the save when using this feature. You cannot use this feature when grappling, restrained, or incapacitated.

Planar Affinity[edit]

At second level, you gain your first Planar Affinity. Chose one of the Planes listed at the end of this class and gain its respective abilities. You choose another Plane at level 6, 10, and 14.

Planeride[edit]

At second level, you begin to be able to travel between planes. For an hour once per day, when you use this feature you can travel to another plane of your choice from the 2nd level Planar Affinity options as well as the Material Plane once per minute. At the beginning of every fifth minute, if you have not traveled within the last minute, you must travel again. If you do not, make a DC 5 Charisma saving throw, which increases by 5 every 5 minutes. On a success, you do not need to travel. On a fail, you are sent to a random plane and cannot travel back for another minute. After an hour is over, you remain on your current plane and cannot use this feature again until you complete a long rest. You must be wearing your Planerider Suit in order to use this feature, and you cannot deactivate your suit until the time is up.

Sleepride[edit]

Some people walk in their sleep, others talk. You travel realms. Whenever you go to sleep, roll a d20. On a 1, you wake up in a random plane. Depending on how deeply you were sleeping, you might Sleepride on rolls of up to 5. You have disadvantage on the roll if your sleep is magical.

Planar Shadows[edit]

As a result of your growing presence on the multiple planes, at level 3 you start to manifest a presence in all planes simultaneously. These ghosts of you mimic every action and movement you take, and are considered incorporeal. They cannot damage or be damaged unless summoned to your current plane, and can only be seen with the effects of Truesight or a similar ability. When you use Interplanar Dip, Planeride, or other plane traveling feature that doesn't transport you to a specific location, you swap places with the ghost of the plane you are traveling to. If you use Truesight, you can see through the eyes of any of your ghosts.

Ability Score Increase[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.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, you can Attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on Your Turn.

Interplanar Dip Improvement[edit]

Starting at 5th level, you can use your Interplanar Dip feature as a single action in one turn. Also, you can now use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus.

Side-Along Planeride[edit]

Starting at level 6, you can bring one other willing creature with you when you Planeride. They must be touching you each time you travel (or, for multiple travelers, touching other travellers that are touching you), or they will remain on the Plane you left them on. For as long as the Planeride feature is in effect, they gain suits similar to yours but modified to fit whatever armor they are wearing. Their armor class and resistances don't change, but they gain the same movement speed and breathing time as you. They can sense whenever you are about to travel, and if they are within 5 feet of you (or another traveller touching you/within 5 feet of you) they can use their reaction to touch you (or the other traveler). The number of other willing creatures you can bring increases by one every other level, as shown on the chart.

Planerider Suit Improvement[edit]

Starting at level 7, your suit provides you with resistance to damage of the type of your current plane (other than the Material Plane) for as long as you are wearing the suit and are in the plane and up to 1 minute after you leave. If you already have resistance to a damage because of your Planar Affinity (but not other features/traits) this becomes immunity for that damage type. You may only benefit from one resistance (or immunity) from this ability). In addition, your Armor Class increases to 13+Dex.

Bayard Specialization[edit]

Your focus on one configuration of your Bayard has given you insight into its many uses. When you reach 7th level, you can choose one Bayard Specialization, detailed at the end of the class. This ability improves at 12th level, and again at 17th level.

Forced Planeride[edit]

Starting at 10th level, when you use your Planeride ability, you can bring one unwilling creature you are touching with you instead of any willing creatures. The creature must make a Charisma save against your Planar Forces DC. On a success, you travel without them. On a fail, they travel with you. While traveling with you, they gain all benefits a willing creature would get while Planeriding with you. The number of unwilling creatures you can bring increases to 2 at 13th level, 3 at 16th level, and 4 at 19th level.

Planerider Armor[edit]

At 11th level, your Planerider Suit has evolved, now looking more impressive and formidable. Your Armor class increases to 14+Dex. Whenever you are damaged, you gain resistance to that damage for 1 round.

Planar Loyalty[edit]

Also starting at 11th level, you may cast Planar Ally once and can do so again after a long rest.

World Wanderer[edit]

At level 15, you learn the Plane Shift spell and can cast it once, and can do so again after a long rest. You must be wearing your Planerider Suit to cast it. In addition, you may use your Planeride feature a second time each day.

Planerider Armor Improvement[edit]

At level 17, your Planerider Suit reaches its peak potential. Your Armor Class increases to 15+Dex. Your Plane specific resistance (or immunity) lasts until you choose to change it, and you may benefit from two different resistances (or immunities) this way.

Plane Seeker[edit]

At level 18, you learn the Demiplane spell and can cast it once, and can do so again after a long rest. You must be wearing your Planerider Suit to cast it.

Jack-of-all-Realms[edit]

By level 20, you have journeyed to every plane and adventured to your heart's content. You gain the effects of all Planar Affinities available at 2nd level and one available at 10th level. You may not take the same Affinity twice. In addition, you may now use Interplanar Dip with any plane.

Powerful Planar[edit]

You are much more comfortable using your powers, and can do so more easily. At level 20 you can use any feature that has a limited number of uses twice as many times as specified, and have twice as many spell slots to use your spells with.

Bayard Upgrades[edit]

Level 7 Upgrades
Improved Energy Rifle: When using the Energy Rifle Configuration, your critical threat range increases to 19-20. This bonus stacks with other sources that increase your threat range.

Level 17 Upgrades
Planar Bullet: At level 17, you may add +2 to your damage when using the Energy Rifle configuration. In addition, you can utilize your connections with the planes to Planar Dip your bullets towards your target. Once per short rest you may make an attack from hiding without breaking stealth. You determine the plane your bullet travels though. On a miss, you may deal your Energy Rifle damage for that bullet normally. On a successful hit, you may spend a use of your Planar Dip ability to manifest it at the location of your bullet. Your bullet still does its normal damage, and on a critical both normal and Planar Dip damage are doubled.
Planar Parry: At level 17, you may add +2 to its shield bonus when using the Energy Sword configuration. In addition, you can utilize your connection with the planes to force a potential attacker to Planeride. Once per short rest, whenever an enemy attacks you with a melee attack, you may force them to make a save against your Planar Forces ability. On a successful save, the attacker misses, and you may push them 10 feet in any direction away from you. On a failed save, the attacker misses and is forced to Planeride in a random plane each round without the benefit of your Planar Suit ability for 1d6 rounds. At the end of this Planeride, the creature reappears in its original location and must make Wisdom save (DC=8+your Charisma Bonus+rounds it was Planeriding) or be confused for 1 minute.
Planar Strike: At level 17, you may add +2d6 to your sneak attack damage when using the Energy Hook configuration. In addition, you can utilize your connection with the planes to summon your Planar Shadows into existence on your current plane. Once per short rest, as a full round action, you may summon up to 2 different, random, Planar Shadow copies of you in any open space within 30 yards of you. These shadows last for 1 minute or until you stop concentrating on this ability. Each Planar Shadow has 1/2 (rounded down) your current hit points, their own round of actions, but is essentially you, has your stats, and acts on the same turn you do. If your either of your Planar Shadows are destroyed for any reason, you are stunned for 1d4 rounds, lose 1/4 of your max hit points (round up) and you are unable to travel to or summon from that Planar Shadow's plane for any reason for the 1 week.

Modrons that are not rogue are not hostile towards you and never can be, unless ordered to by Primus. You can try to hack a Duodrone, giving you complete control over it. You must spend ten minutes working with your tinker tools, at the end of which you make a DC 15 tinker's tools check. On a fail, the Duodrone becomes a rogue modron and is hostile towards you. On a success, it and two Monodrones under it become your servants and will follow all of your commands as if by a Dominate Beast spell. They continue to follow you until they are all destroyed. You can only have one Duodrone following you at a time. If any Modrons under your command are destroyed, all Modrons under their command go rogue and become hostile towards you.
At 15th Level you can hack a Tridrone instead, giving you control over three Duodrones and six Monodrones. You can only have one Tridrone under your command at a time.
At 20th Level you can hack a Quadrone instead, giving you control over four Tridrones, twelve Duodrones, and twenty four Monodrones. You can only have one Quadrone under your command at a time.

When the gears of Mechanus complete 17 cycles once every 289 years, Primus sends a vast army of Modrons across the Outer Planes. If you are alive, you must join this mission.
If you die while wearing your Planerider Suit, your suit continues working. You gain temporary hit points equal to half your maximum hit points. You lose all racial traits and gain those of Warforged. Your suit becomes part of your body and may not be removed. After finishing your immediate objective, you become a Lawful Neutral NPC under the command of Primus. Spells to resurrect you will automatically fail unless Primus allows it.
Limbo
You cannot take this Planar Affinity if you are Lawful. Otherwise, your alignment becomes Chaotic if it is not already.
You learn Deep Speech and Slaadi.
Your Planerider Suit begins to look... Chaotic. The white and black parts turn a purple hue, and the colors seem to swirl together.
