The Sky mage[edit]

The sky mage, known throughout the lands as fearsome fighters, these odd balls put even the most skilled arcane tricksters to shame, their hybrid of both ranged and melee combat superiority, as well and their often agile and dexterous fighting style allows them to easily over come many challenges. Using powerful lighting magic to fry their enemies, and unique wind magic to enhance their physical capabilities, a wind mages glass-cannon like fighting style will make a good addition to any team.

Creating a Sky mage[edit]

Sky mages are often small, fast, and deadly, but lack the build to survive any hard hits. Their magic stems from an organ found just below the heart. Sky mages, in a sense, are wired differently. This organ, often referred to as the storm kings Gem, has the ability to generate vast amounts of electricity. This generation is continuous, and by altering the magnetic currents around the host It can even allow the manipulation of wind. However these organs do not fit everyone. This gem is often acquired through birth, however transplants have been recorded in the past, even if the success rate is low. Only certain people are able to be a host to the storm kings gem, although what the requirements are to be a host are still unknown, and to make the risk even greater, Each gem appears to be unique in its requirements. Any who attempt a transplant without meeting these requirements often find themselves dead within the hour due to organ failure. These Organs are extremely valuable, especially since they can be transplanted, but because of this many hunter groups will kill anyone who is thought to contain the organ.

Some of the wealthier society may have these organs transplanted into their children in hopes it make them more skilled combatants, while others receive them as gifts for heroic deeds, or exceptional skill on the battle field. Was your character born with this organ? or was it transplanted in by a wealthy parent in order to make you more valuable, whatever the case, you now control the power of the sky...

Class Powers (CP)[edit]

At the given levels you will unlock 2 new Class Powers(CP). These powers all share a few basic requirements that must be met before they are learned and the CP themselves are divided into tiers. Each Power costs one point regardless of the Tier, however higher Tiers may only be accessed when their requirements are met which sometimes requires level (Tier 3 class powers cannot be taken until 5th level) and sometimes requires specific investment in that element (Tier 3 requires two Tier 2 abilities). The Mage must also meet any requirements that may be listed for each ability's use and purchase. When you gain a power of a higher tier, prior Class Power may increase in their use or effectiveness. Class Powers are magical abilities, and as such may be Counterspelled, or dispelled just like the spells they are often based off of. Use the Elemental Tier as the spell level for purposes of dispell or counterspell.

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.

Spell Slots[edit]

The Elemental Mage table shows how many spell slots they have to cast their spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, they must expend a slot of the spells level or higher. The mage will regain all expended spell slots when they finish a long rest.

Spell casting ability[edit]

Wisdom is their spellcasting ability as an Elemental Mage, since their magic draws on their attunement to the elements. You use their Wisdom whenever a spell or ability refers to their spellcasting ability. Their Wisdom modifier is also used to determine the saving throw DC for their spells and their spell attack modifier as follows:

Spell save DC = 8 + proficiency bonus + Wisdom modifier
Spell attack modifier = proficiency bonus + Wisdom modifier

(Please note that injuries sustained before activation are not lost, for example, a broken arm will not fix itself upon activating plasma gear, you simply do not feel the pain it causes)

You lose: Plasma Gear is an end of the line ability, not something to use on a few minor skeletons. Its meant to be something you use when your the last man standing in a boss fight, and it looks like you'll die anyway. So while this ability is extremely powerful, the chance of you using it more then once is next to nothing. This ability is meant to be OP, its meant to be ridiculously strong and its meant to be unfair, with the trade off of permanently crippling the character that uses it.

  • Upon activating this ability you instantly start taking damage equal to your hit die (For example if your hit die is a d6 you take 6, 12, 24, 48, 96 etc.)
  • This damage is no ordinary damage, it is a very lethal damage, and will destroy both your heart and body. This is not something any 'normal' cleric can heal, and may take may weeks of traumatic surgery to fix, The damage may even be unfixable (at DM's discretion). After reverting back to your normal state you must roll a d8, and you will be given the related consequence from the table below. (note that these affects ARE permanent and cannot be fixed)
  • Exhaustion - once you revert back to your normal form you are instantly given 4 points of exhaustion
  • Magic Expenditure - once you revert back to your normal form, all remaining spell slots are used up
  • Heavy Toll - once you revert back to your normal form you are instantly put to 0 health and must begin death saving rolls.

Again please note that these affects are permanent, and will stay with your character even through death, or if they try to switch bodies
