Puppet Master[edit]

Puppet Masters are gifted individuals who can channel arcane energy through inanimate objects as well as another being, rather than through themselves. Most are performers that put on shows for nobles and kings to entertain and make a living. As for others, they use their puppets to silently take out targets for assassinations without placing themselves in direct danger.

The Puppet Master sits silently anticipating an opening to attack as a troupe of opposing soldiers are slaughtered in an overwhelming barrage of needles, raining down from the trees overhead.

Class Features[edit]

Magical voice[edit]

You have a beautiful voice that can recreate the sound of anything like waterfalling and birds chirps it also can even create new sounds but to replicate one you must hear it first

Magi Strings[edit]

Threads of magical force used for controlling your puppets and other creatures. A set of strings comprises of five threads, attached from each of your fingers on one hand to the limbs and head of a target puppet or creature. You must have an empty hand to use one set of strings: thus if you have two empty hands you can control two sets of strings. Strings are intangible and invisible.

At 1st level, the maximum length of your strings is 15 feet times intelligence modifier. If intelligence modifier is 0 or negative max string length is 15 feet. You lose control of the subject of the strings if you are separated from it by a distance longer than the length of the strings. You can dismiss one or both sets of strings on your turn: this does not require an action. The strings also disappear if you fall unconscious.

Center Stage[edit]

Your stories and performances have captivated even the most disinterested of kings and nobles

You now throw advantage on performance and deception when trying to catch and keep the attention of creatures through the use of voices and sounds But to mimic voices and sounds you have to have heard them for at least a minute.

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.

Puppet creation[edit]

You can create small puppets made of yarn solely for distractions,perfomances and assassinations and then put these puppets into the Storage which is a magical closet meant for the puppets

once at level 7 a player can solidify their magic string into a substance that feels like yarn and is about as thick as a whip and it is able to be manipulated by the player (it does 1d4 slashing when used as a weapon)

The Study Of puppet creation[edit]

This allows the user at level 20 to create a puppet that can support their soul but the player has to take 3 long rests to create the puppet, a short rest after every battle with the puppet body to restitch yourself and a wis check after every long rest (dont remind them DMs) to check for loose stitching (roll a d4 if its a 1 roll a d20 then for every loose stitch (1-20) they take plus halve of they damage ×1-20 until they are fixed)

Study of the string[edit]
