Stand User, Tusk Variant (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
- Note: I used the Stand User Class as a template.
Stand users, in their basic form, are the users of spiritual manifestation of one's own soul and strength. The stands come in many shapes and sizes, from the fast and mobile, the secretive and deadly, and the slow but measurable in their destructive power. Some stands are stronger than others, those who are born into the "Joestar" bloodline tend to have stronger but those who have been touched by "The Arrow" more than once are able to tap into their stand's true strength and obtain a "Requiem Stand". Stands are only visible by those who bear stands or to those who have latent ability, magi and the likes.
|Types of Stands, like Star Platinum, have incredible strength and dexterity|
Creating a Stand User
What compels your Stand User? Are they a con man? Are they a hero who uses their Stand for good or are they a villain who plots for world domination thanks to their powerful Stand? Or is your User only seeking for a peaceful life and only uses their stand to fulfill their more sinister acts? Or perhaps your Stand is simply used to entertain and satisfy the needs of others? Were you hit by the Arrow to get your stand or are you part of the Joestar bloodline, destined to become a hero.

Stand User's Features and Abilities
Many Stand abilities require expending Spirit Points to activate. The number of spirit points you have is shown in the Stand User table. You regain all expended Spirit Points after completing a long rest.
Manifestation of Will
You have a “Stand”, on a seperate character sheet write down the stats for your stand. The stats will vary based on which alignment you will follow. You can call out your Stand as a bonus action at the start of your turn, or recall your Stand as a bonus action at the end of your turn. When you call out your Stand, it occupies the same space as your character, and will follow you of its own accord within 5 feet unless you tell it otherwise. You can telepathically order your Stand to move, but ordering your Stand to interact with its surroundings (attack, lift something, etc.) you use up your action for that turn. Your Stand is immune to spells that buff or debuff a creature (Haste, Longstrider, etc.) and any effects of spells that target your Stand affect your character instead. Your stand can phase through creatures/objects and everything seen by your stand is also seen by you.

Stand Proud Focus
Stand Users live for combat in all forms. They have trained their minds as well as bodies to focus in the heat of battle. While a user is not wearing heavy armor they take 3 less damage from non magical piercing, slashing, and bludgeoning damage. They also gain advantage against Charm, Frighten, and Paralysis saving throws.
Your Stand is only visible to other Stand Users and to strong magic users or Psions. Stands can only be damaged by other Stands or by magical damage. Any damage dealt to you is dealt to your stand. A creature that you have your Stand interact with must make a DC 16 wisdom saving throw. If they fail, the Stand remains invisible to them. Otherwise, they become aware of the stands presence but only after they get attacked by it.
At 2nd level, one learns more about the technique and what their family through them to do with it. You learn how to spin the magnus effect in a hand sized object witch you can throw and in process the rotation can be thrown and or bounce depending on the target. Making an object spin gives you proficiency with it as well as it scales off your dexterity or strength bonus, the time it takes to gain this is only 1 minute long and the object has to be the same size as your hand, if it is bigger it will spin much slower and will not be effective.
-Spin Style save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Dexterity modifier (your choice)
-You regain your Spin dice after a short or long rest.
-The Spin: If the target hits any creature with a muscle structure it can contort those muscles. If the attack is to be successful one has to make a regular ranged weapon attack with any object that has begun sniping (if the object is bigger than your hand it will not gain any force, and using any objects that are not sphere-like or disk-like have disadvantage on the spin attack).
-The Spin dice: to Spin an object you must expand a spin Dice which is a 1d4 and expands at 7th level (1d6), at 10th level (1d8), at 15th level (1d10), at 18th level (1d12). You start with 6 spin dice and gain two additional spin dice at 7th, and 15th level. To initiate a Spin, you must expand a bonus action and then the object will then spin for 1 minute before having to use another spin dice. If the Spinning object is inside someone, they take the damage of the spin at the start of their turn as well as you can retrieve the spin object with a bonus action. The Spin Styles that mention contortion may only work on creatures with a muscle structure, and cannot pierce Heavy armor unless stated otherwise.You can use only one Spin Styles per attack.
-Any object that is spinning will deal 1d4 Bludgeoning damage plus dexterity or strength modifier (players choice), at 7th level (1d6), at 10th level (1d8), at 15th level (1d10), at 18th level (1d12).
-The objects return back to you once you choose to return it using a bonus action, otherwise you can keep the object spinning on the target as an action. You can recover Spin dice every long rest.
-Once Unlocking the Spin, you learn from the many Spin Styles of using its power, To use a Spin Style you must expand a Spin dice. You have spin dice once you choose this archatype, you have 3 Spin Styles, you gain 2 additional Spin Style at 7th, 10th, and 15th levels. Each time you learn new Spins, you can also replace one Spin you know with a different one.

If the range is 60 ft, then it becomes 120 ft if doubled.
Contort; When enemies lose their mind enough, you gain the option to bring them further from your position.

The object of the spin is then stuck in them until called back.
When you hit a creature with a Spin attack, you can expend one Spin die to attempt to disarm the target, forcing it to drop one item of your choice that it’s holding. The target must make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save, it drops the object you choose. The object lands at its feet.

If an enemy steps or comes in range to the ball he will take the damage of the spin and any other tools associated. The weapon will activate automatically at the start of your own turn and it has a 5 ft radius in which it spins and fires. One may also spend 2 turns to charge the ball as a major action in order to increase the radius of the release to 10 ft but one who is doing this is concentrating as if they were to cast a spell.
When an enemy tries to attack you, you may as a reaction then expand a spin die to revolve the spin object(s) around you or an ally at least within 15 ft.
