Spellscared (5e Class)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Backstory At the death of the Goddess of Magic, a violent eldritch disease spread across the mortal world, a plague known as the Spellblight....Everything touched by this arcanic infection begun to mutate, and every one became a perfect engine of eldritch destruction and mutation of limitless power. As a dreadful cost, nearly no one could maintain a sentient mind. But a few managed to keep their sanity.

Birthing the Spellscarred[edit]

In a mere 1% of all known cases of infection something incredible and rare occurs. In the event of one of these occurrences, the eldritch rewrite provoked by the Spellblight causes the body to metabolise and subdue the corruption. This results in an individual controlling the Blight Mutations with phenomenal abilities, a free willed deadly shapeshifting being outside of the natural world -- of nearly limitless potential, power and destruction. They can fashion portions of their bodies into weapons and cause mass devastation to the environment with their incredible physical strength and durability. Newly enhanced musculature and strengthened epidermis and bodily tissue increases their strength, speed, reflexes, and agility by shifting their biomass to their limbs, allowing them to break the boundaries of human sprinting and jumping/climbing ability to perform amazing feats.

and you... are that 1%.

Blight Body[edit]

Blight Body encompasses the following four features:

Unarmored Defence
Magic Rejection
Unarmoured Movement.
Unarmored Defense (Biomass)[edit]

Due to the bulk of your Blight biomass acting as an absorption layer, your Armour Class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a shield and still gain this benefit.


Consuming is the process by which you absorb the flesh or essence of other entities. After consuming, the left over body is an unidentifiable mess. As a free action upon dealing the killing blow to a creature, or as an action otherwise, you can consume a creature as long as it is within 5ft and is either dead or on 0 hit points. Upon doing so, the following events happen: You gain 1 Mutation point or 1d6 temp Hp per Creature Hit dice. This HP goes away at the end of a long rest.

Magic Item Rejection[edit]

You may not attune magical items. You may carry them, touch them, but the magic in them and the nature of you - just do not mix.

Unarmoured Movement[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, your biomass increases the strength and speed of your legs. Your speed increases by 10 feet while you are not wearing armour or wielding a shield. This bonus increases when you reach certain Spellscarred levels, as shown in the Spellscarred table.
At 9th level, you gain the ability to move along vertical surfaces on your turn without falling during the move.

Mutate Weapon[edit]

At 1st level you can select your first weapon mutation from the Blight Mutations list. You become your weapons. Your choices are Claws, Blade, Hammerfist or Whipfist. You may form your selected weapon for free during your move or action just as any other character can draw or sheathe a weapon. In order to change the form of your weapon more than once per round will require the use of a free action.

Blight Mutations[edit]

Starting at 1st level, your blight mastery allows you to harness the versatility of Blight mutations. Your access to this ability is represented by a number of mutation points. You can expend these points to fuel the various mutation features. You start knowing three such Mutation Features (your choice) at lvl 1 for which you meet the prerequisites.

Whenever you gain the Blight Mutation class feature, you may select a new mutation (see below). The maximum number of mutation points you can spend on a single mutation is equal to your proficiency bonus + you CON modifier. When you spend a mutation point, it is gone until you finish a short or long rest, at the end of which you regenerate all of your expended biomass back into yourself. Some of your mutation features require your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature's effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

Mutation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Constitution modifier

Danger Sense[edit]

At 2nd level, you gain an uncanny sense of when things nearby aren’t as they should be, giving you an edge when you dodge away from danger. You have advantage on Dexterity saving throws against effects that you can see, such as traps and spells. To gain this benefit, you can’t be blinded, deafened, or incapacitated.

Absorb Shock[edit]

Beginning at 3rd level, you can use your reaction when you fall to reduce any falling damage you take by an amount equal to five times your level.

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 you 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. The number of attacks increases again at 11th level.

Empowered Strikes[edit]

Starting at 6th level, your natural attacks create their own supernatural signature and count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. Your attacks ignore resistance to bludeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. IF the target is immune, they instead, become resistant. You deal +1d8 Necrotic damage at level 6, +2d8 at level 12, +3d8 at level 18

Apex Predator[edit]

At 20th level, you become an apex predator and your body reaches the pinnacle of genetic mutation. Your Strength or dexterity and Constitution scores increase by 4. Your maximum for those scores is now 24. You generate CON modifier Mutation points each turn.

A creature is immune to this effect if it is immune to slashing damage, doesn't have or need a head, has legendary actions, or the DM decides that the creature is too big for its head to be cut off with this weapon.

Pack Leader(Prerequisites: Level 11)
The Pack Leader ability allows you to mutate the corpses of nearby creatures. Biomass tendrils extend from you and into their bodies, pumping them with biomass, and using their genetic material to spawn brawlers. As an action, you can spend 4 mutation points to transform any two medium sized creatures that have died or are on 0 hit points. The biomass of each corpse mutates and contorts, changing from what they once were, into the foul alien-like monstrosities known as Brawlers. On each of your turns, you can use a bonus action to mentally command any brawlers you made with this mutation if the creatures are within 60 feet of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what action the creatures will take and where they will move during their next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creatures only defend themselves against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creatures continues to follow it until its task is complete. The creatures are under your control for 1 minute, after which they stop obeying any commands and self-destruct. The explosion from each brawler has a 5ft radius and deals 3d8 + 9 piercing damage, or half as much with a successful Dexterity save, as shrapnel from their corpses explode outward. For every additional mutation point spent, you can create 1 additional brawler, however each brawler must come from its own corpse.
