Drawing on the innate connection that you have made with the shinsu, you can cast spells to shape the world around you. See chapter 10 of the PHB for the general rules of spellcasting and below to view the Wave Controller
- Spell Slots
The table below shows how many spell slots you have. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.
You know 2 cantrips from the wave controller spell list, detailed at the bottom of this page. You learn more cantrips as shown in the wave controller table above.
- Spells Known of 1st and Higher
You know four 1st level spells of your choice from the Wave Controller spell list below.
When you gain a level in this class, you can choose to replace one wave controller spell you know for another of a spell level you can cast.
- Spellcasting Ability
Wisdom is you spellcasting ability, as your knowledge of how to gather and use the shinsu around you enables you to cast spells.
Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier
- Spellcasting Focus
- You can use an arcane focus (found in chapter 5) as a spellcasting focus for your
Starting at the 2nd level, you've learned to handle yourself in a close quarters fight. Your control over shinsu has enabled you to strengthen your body, making your unarmed strikes more powerful.
You gain the following benefits when unarmed and not wearing armor or wielding a shield:
- Unarmed strikes count as finesse weapons (if they weren't already), allowing you to use either Dexterity or Strength for attack and damage rolls with those weapons.
- You can use a d4 in place of the normal weapon damage dice with unarmed strikes. This die increases as you gain wave controller levels, as shown on the table above.
- When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike on your turn, you may make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.
Enhancing your body with shinsu has granted you a kind of natural armor.
Starting at the 2nd level, while wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier.
Choose one element: Acid, Fire, Ice(Cold), Lightning, Soul(necrotic), Poison, Rock(Bludgeoning) or Divine(radiant).
Starting at the 3rd level, when you make an unarmed strike or cast the Shinsu Baang cantrip, you may change the damage to the chosen type. This counts as magical damage in order to overcome resistance and immunity.
At 6th, 11th and 16th levels you can choose again. If you choose the same element twice, you deal an additional damage equal to your wisdom modifier of the chosen type on a hit.
At 11th level, this feature extends to all spells that you cast.
At 3rd level, you chose a position. Choose between Fisherman and Scout, both are detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at 6th, 10th, and 14th levels.
Ability Score Increase
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.
Starting at the 4th level, you may use your reaction when you are kit by a ranged weapon attack to deflect or catch the missile. When you do so, the damage you take is reduced by 1d10 + your Dexterity modifier + your wave controller level.
If you reduce the damage to 0 in this way, you can catch the missile if it is small enough for you to hold in one hand and you have a hand free.
At 7th level, your instinctive agility lets you dodge out of the way of certain attacks, such as a dragon's breath or the fireball. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and half damage if you fail.
At 9th level and again at 17th level, you gain resistance to one type of damage that you chose for the Shinsu Quality feature. If you choose the same element twice, you become immune to that damage type.
At 15th level, you no longer age and you can't be aged magically. Additionally you can't die of old age and are immune to disease.
At 20th level, you can draw on your inner reserve of mystical power while entreating the administrator (your deity, if you aren't in a campaign based on ToG) to regain expended spell slots.
You can spend 1 minute entreating your the administrator (your deity, if you aren't in a campaign based on ToG) for aid to regain all our expended spell slots from your Shinsu Control feature. Once you regain spell slots with this feature, you must finish a long rest before you can do so again.
A fisherman specializes in melee combat, using their inventory of weapons and items to take down their foes.
When you adopt this position at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with light armour, and you gain proficiency with one-handed swords. Your Martial arts feature applies to weapons that you are proficient with.
You also gain proficiency in the Intimidation skill if you don't already have it.
- Melee Adept
Starting at 5th level, when you cast a spell, you can make one weapon attack or unarmed strike as a bonus action.
- Reinforced Weapon
Beginning at 10th level, the effects of the Shinsu Quality feature extend to melee weapons that you are proficient in.
- Advanced Reflexes
At 14th level, you gain additional reactions equal to your dexterity modifier. Additionally, if an enemy misses you with a melee attack, you can make an opportunity attack.
Scouts move ahead of the group for reconnaissance. They are generally pretty stealthy and evasive.
- Cunning Action
Starting at 3rd level, your quick thinking and agility allow you to move and act quickly. You can take a bonus action on each of your turns in combat. This action can be used only to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
At 3rd level, your speed increases by 10 feet when you are not wearing armor or using a shield.
You also gain proficiency in the Investigation and Stealth skills if you don't already have them.
- Uncanny Dodge
Starting at 5th level, when an attacker that you can see hits you with an attack, you can use your reaction to halve the attack's damage against you.
- Reliable Talent
By 10th level, you have refined your chosen skills until they approach perfection. Whenever you make an ability check that lets you add your proficiency bonus, you can treat a d20 roll of 9 or lower as a 10.
Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or invisible creature within 10 feet of you.
