Mastermind

Well Armed – Your practice at Weapon Throwing has left you particularly proficient, and starting at 1st level when you throw a weapon that you are proficient with to attack;  

Provided it has the thrown property, you can use the damage dice on table in the class description instead of the weapon's damage dice if you so choose. 

You can choose to use your DEX modifier for thrown attacks instead of your STR modifier for attack and damage rolls, even if the weapon doesn't have the finesse property.

You can draw a weapon with the thrown property and make an attack as part of the same action (this will stack with Extra Attack [I]).

Precision – Starting at 2nd level the maximum range at which you can naturally throw a weapon, y; [Thrown (x/y), x<y.], increases by the value shown in the table in the class description.

This feature improves at 9th level.

Battle Plan – When you reach 3rd level in this class, you decide on the battle plan you have been perfecting throughout your Thrown Weapon training. Choose one of the following Battle Plans; you will gain new feats from your Battle Plan at 3rd, 7th, 13th and 18th level: Bandolier Strategy, Shadow Tactics or Snake's Fang. 

Bandolier Strategy – You are a versatile and seasoned fighter, reflected by the ridiculous number of weapons you tend to carry around at any given time. 

Weapon Aficionado – You can see the beauty and the beastly in nearly everything around you. Starting when you choose this battle plan at 3rd level, you can spend 1 hour (during a long rest if you so choose) using whatever tools and resources you have at your disposal to create improvised thrown weapons. You can create any number of 

Disposable Weapons up to a maximum of your INT modifier (min. 1), and they have the following properties;

The 'weapons' must resemble a weapon in some way, they use the Thrown Weapon table damage dice, and have a natural range of (20/60). If the weapon has the Heavy property, the natural range is (5/15), and attacks are made with disadvantage, but deal an extra 5 points of damage. These weapons are brittle, and tend to break on impact (at the DM's discretion). You are proficient with these weapons.

One Man Army – Starting at 3rd level when you choose this Battle Plan weapons no longer affect your maximum carrying capacity, unless those weapons have the Heavy property.

Multi-talented – Starting at 7th level, you can throw any weapon that you are proficient with when you make an attack, with a natural range of (15/30), unless those weapons have the Heavy property.You can throw any Heavy weapon with a natural range of (5/10), but you must use your STR (not DEX) modifier for the attack roll and damage, and attacks at max range are always made with disadvantage, even if disadvantage would usually be ignored by other effects (such as Sharpshooter).

Quick Thinking – Starting at 13th level, if you defeat an enemy with an attack, you can instantly make another thrown weapon attack at a creature you can see within 30 ft. You can only use this feature once per turn.

Weapon Barrage – Starting at 18th level, you can use your action to unleash an unholy barrage of weapons upon your enemies. You can only make Thrown Weapon Attacks, and you keep making attacks until you miss. Each time you attack, you gain a cumulative -1 bonus to your next attack roll (2nd attack = -2, 3rd = -3, etc), and you must use the Thrown Weapon damage dice for your level from the table, without adding any modifiers to the damage. 

Shadow Tactics – You are nimble but fragile, and tend observe battle carefully from the shadows, choosing the most opportune moments to strike.

Eastern Arts – You trained under a mysterious master, that taught you an elusive fighting style, and the art of forging Shurikens. Starting when you choose this Battle Plan at 3rd level, you have a set of tools (that costs 2 gp to replace) required for crafting Shurikens, that cost 1 cp each in materials to create. 

You can spend an hour (during a long rest if you so choose) to attempt to craft Shurikens; Roll a d20 and add your DEX modifier and proficiency bonus. Unless you roll a 1, for each point over 10 that you roll, you successfully create 1 Shuriken, the maximum number of Shurikens you can carry at any one time is equal to your Tactician level. You are proficient with Shurikens, and they have the following properties;

Shurikens use a d4 damage dice, or the damage dice from the Thrown Weapon damage dice table. Finesse, Light (0.5 lb), Thrown [Natural Range (20/60)], Special.

Special – This weapon cannot be used a melee weapon, and embeds itself so deep on impact that it is irretrievable (unless the DM decides otherwise).

One With Shadows – Starting when you choose this Battle Plan at 3rd level, you can Hide as a bonus action, and while prone you suffer none of the disadvantages of being prone. You can stand up/fall prone at will, and you can hide while prone. While hidden, your Shuriken attacks do not reveal your location to the enemy.

Untouchable – Starting at 7th level if a creature within 5 ft. of you makes an attack against you and misses, you can use your reaction to gain the benefits of the disengage action, and can move up to 10 ft. in any direction you choose.

Fleet of Foot – Starting at 13th level You can run across vertical surfaces and ceilings, provided you don't stop moving, and can take the (Extra) Attack action to throw Shurikens while moving, making it difficult for the enemy to discern your location.

Shuriken Mastery – Starting at 18th level each time you craft Shurikens you craft additional Shurikens up to a maximum equal to your INT modifier (min. 1), at no extra cost. In addition your Shurikens can score Critical Hits on rolls of 19 or 20.

Snake's Fang – You have learned to harness the power of poisons, and have even gone as far as to test your concoctions on yourself.

Lacerating Blades – Starting when you choose this battle plan at 3rd level, you can spend an hour (of a long rest, if you so choose) crafting jagged fang-like blades. You use basic materials that total 5cp per blade, and you have the tools (that cost 1 gp to replace) required. You can carry a maximum number of Lacerating Blades equal to your Tactician level at any one time, you are proficient with them, and each blade has the following properties;

The Lacerating Blade deals a d6 (Slashing) damage dice, or uses the Thrown Weapon damage on the table if thrown, if you so choose.  Weight of 1 lb each, Finesse, Thrown (15/30), Special.

Special – If a blade hits a creature it cuts deep, and when thrown will embed itself in the enemy causing it to bleed heavily. If this weapon was thrown, the creature takes an additional d6 Slashing damage at the start of each of its turns, and must use an action to remove the blade or keep suffering the effect.

Toxicologist – At 3rd level when you choose this Battle Plan you become proficient with the Poisoner's Kit and Alchemy Kit.

Seething Toxins – Starting at 7th level you gain advantage on saving throws against Poison, as well as resistance to poison damage. In addition you can use your Poisoner's Kit when crafting Lacerating Blades, each blade deals 2 additional points of poison damage when it hits, and an additional 2 each time the enemy takes subsequent damage from the wound.

Toxic Concoctions – Starting at 13th level, using your Poisoner's Kit, you can spend an hour (of a long rest, if you so choose) brewing a batch of Poison. You use basic ingredients that toal 2 sp per batch, and each batch can be applied to weapons a number of times equal to your INT modifier at the time of brewing (min. 1). The Poisons dry out 1 minute after being applied to a weapon, or immediately upon effecting an enemy.

Your Poison's DC = 8 + your Proficiency modifier + your INT modifier. 

You can carry three batches at any one time, and each batch has one of the following effects:

Vitality Toxin – When hit with a poisoned weapon, the target must succeed a CON saving throw against your Poison's DC, or take an extra d4 Poison damage (or your current Thrown Weapon damage if it's higher). The creature takes an additional 2 points of poison damage each turn, until it succeeds its saving throw, and an affected creature repeats it saving throw at the start of each turn.

Jointlock Toxin – The target must succeed a CON saving throw against your Poison's DC, or be paralysed. The affected creature repeats its saving throw at the start of each of its turns, and is no longer Paralysed on a successful save.

Desensitising Toxin – The target must succeed a CON save against your Poison's DC, or be blinded and deafened. The affected creature repeats its saving throw at the start of each of its turns, and is no longer affected on a successful save.

Potent Toxins – You have mastered the art of brewing toxins, and starting at 18th level you can carry a maximum number of Batches equal to your INT modifier (min. 3). In addition you can now choose to apply 2 uses of any batch of Poison to a weapon, and the DC for the affected creature increases by your INT modifier on the initial saving throw. Even if 2 batches are applied, they dry out after 1 minute, or after affecting 1 creature.

Ability Score Improvement – You gain this feat at 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level. 

Extra Attack (I) – Starting at 5th level you gain the Extra Attack feat, allowing you to attack twice, instead of once, when you take the Attack action.

Prep Talk – You now have the ability to prepare allies, granting both you and them certain benefits for 1 hour, unless specified otherwise. At 6th level you choose one of the strategies listed below, you choose another at 11th and 17th level, provided you are a high enough level to learn this ability, and the duration of the effects lasts increases to 4 hours when you reach 17th level. You do not count as an affected creature unless specified otherwise, and you must spend 10 minutes verbally preparing the selected creatures each time you use this feature.

When using this feat., choose which effect to apply to any number of creatures within 30 ft. up to a maximum equal to your INT modifier. Each creature gains the same benefit. Each time you learn a new Prep Talk strategy, you can switch one you already know for a different one, provided you are a high enough level to learn it.

Pawn's Gambit – You are familiar with the principle of ‘Safety in Numbers’, and you and your allies can use this to your advantage. After briefing your allies on the Pawn's Gambit an affected creature's AC increases by 1 if you or another affected creature is within 5 ft., and your AC increases by 2 if an affected creature is within 5 ft. of you.

You must be 6th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy.

Knight's Mobility – You understand that positioning is vital, and you form a strategy with your allies that grants additional movement. An affected creature's movement speed increases by 10 ft., including yourself, and while riding mounts the mount’s speed is doubled.

You must be 6th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy.

Bishop's Perspicacity – You use your intellect and understanding to bestow wisdom upon your allies. Affected creatures have advantage on WIS saving throws for the duration.

You must be 11th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy.

Rook's Fortitude – You know how important it is to stand your ground, and can teach your allies a few maneuvers to grant them an advantage when taking a stand. Affected creatures can no longer be targeted by Attacks of opportunity, and if a creature attempts to move out of melee range of an affected creature, even if that creature takes the disengage action, the affected creature can use its reaction to attempt to grapple (provided the target of the grapple is the same size class as the affected creature or smaller). The DC for the grapple is 8 + the creature’s STR modifier + the creature’s proficiency bonus, and if a creature targeted by the grapple attempt fails a DEX saving throw against the grapple DC it is considered Grappled. A grappled creature can repeat its saving throw as an action on subsequent turns.

You must be 11th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy.

Queen's Glory – You know that to win, you must be prepared to fight, and must master techniques to counter any foe. The weapon attacks of an affected creature (including yourself) count as magical for the purposes of overcoming damage resistance and immunity. Weapons affected by this feat. count as +1 unless they are already magical weapons.

You must be 17th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy.

King's Reign – Your allies are your strength, and you use your abilities to sway the fates of those close to you in battle. All affected creatures gain a +1 bonus to all saving throws for the duration, and when you use this Prep Talk you gain 5 Luck Points as per the Lucky feat. (PHB pg 167). You can't use these points to change your own rolls, however when an affected creature within 30 ft. rolls a d20, you can use your reaction to spend one of the 5 Luck Points to allow that creature to reroll. The creature can chose which roll to use.

You must be 17th level to learn this Prep Talk strategy. 

Improved Precision – By 9th level, your precision has dramatically improved. Both the minimum and maximum range of Thrown Weapons increases as per the table in the class description, and if you are wearing light or no armour then your movement speed increases by the same value that your minimum range increases by.

Versatile – You are adaptable, and at 10th level you have learned to utilise a multitude of resources to your advantage. The next time you take a long rest choose one of the optional feats from the PHB. You gain all of the benefits of this feature aside from stat increases, and you can swap it for a different feat. each time you finish a long rest.

Personal Preparations – Your mental and physical preparations for upcoming situations reaches the peak of its effectiveness. Starting at 14th level when you take a long rest, choose one of the following benefits, which lasts from the end of the long rest until your next long rest unless otherwise specified;

– You gain resistance to any damage type of your choice that you aren't already resistant or immune to for 8 hours.

– You are proficient in 1 additional saving throw of your choice for 8 hours.

– You have one (additional if you already have Luck Points) Luck Point as per the Lucky feat. You recover the Luck Point each time you long rest, and can only gain 1 Luck Point from this feature at a time.

– You gain advantage on ability checks for 1 skill of your choice for 24 hours.

During your next long rest you can choose a different benefit to apply to yourself, and can only be affected by 1 benefit of your choice at any one time.

Opportunist – You have figured out how to take advantage of the situation wherein an enemy leaves themselves vulnerable. Starting at 15th level if a creature within 30 ft. of you that you can see is hit with an Attack of opportunity, you can use your reaction to make a single Thrown Weapon attack against that creature. You must use the damage 

dice from the Thrown Weapon damage table, and do not add any modifiers to the damage.

Mastermind – You have spent so much time in the heat of battle that you can accurately predict your opponent's next move. Starting at 20th level you can use your action to select a creature within 30 ft. of you. Make a d20 roll and add your INT modifier; if you roll a number equal to or higher than the designated creature's level or CR you can decide which action the creature will take next turn from the following list;

Attack – The target will make as many attacks as possible against the nearest creature that it is hostile to.

Special Attack – If the target can use a special attack (such as a Breath Weapon), it will use it at the start of its turn after using its movement to be within range of a hostile creature. If the target does not have a special attack it can 

use, it will take the Attack action against the nearest hostile creature.

Brace – The affected creature takes the Dodge action on its next turn.

Flee – At the start of its next turn, the affected creature takes the Disengage action, and moves away from any hostile creatures if possible, otherwise it moves it’s full movement speed (or as far as possible) in any direction it chooses.

If you have attempted to use this feat. against a creature and you failed to roll high enough, the creature becomes ‘immune to the effect’ for 24 hours, as you decide that the creature’s battle techniques are too erratic to be predicted. 

Elemental Manipulator

The Elemental Manipulator is a class intended for Genasi that bear a strong, primal connection to their elemental plane of origin. Anyone can attune themselves to an elemental plane of existence and take this class, though it usually takes months of meditation.

Multiclassing – To multiclass as an Elemental manipulator you require a minimum of 13 Constitution. You can multiclass as an Elemental Manipulator if you already took this class, but you must chose a different element the 2nd time. You can’t gain a feat with the same name twice, unless the feat has a different effect based on your element of choice.

It is rumoured that when plague or blight ravage the land, it is the result of a Druid of the Circle of Life neglecting their duty,

Bonus Cantrip – When you choose this Circle at 2nd level, you learn one cantrip of your choice from the Cleric spell list.

If you receive a vision dictating the protection of a certain creature, that creature’s quarry becomes yours too.

Unearthly Conviction. Once your quarry has been determined you will not rest easy until your quarry is slain, and nothing brings you pride like surrendering to the will of the Valkyries.

All fiends and undead creatures within 30ft. of you that can see or hear you must make a WIS saving throw against your Spell Save DC; on a failed save a creature takes 1d8 radiant damage, and repeats its saving throw at the start of each of its turns.

If a creature is bound to you must use its movement to move as close to you as possible (without taking any damage, i.e. a bound creature will not jump off of a cliff to reach you), and if possible, will make as many melee attacks against you as it can with it’s action and bonus action. The effect ends if; 1 minute passes, you or the target drops to 0 hp or falls unconscious, you move more than 60 ft. away from the target, or if you attack a creature that isn’t bound to you.

At 18th level the range of this aura extends to 30 ft., and the attack penalty/damage bonus becomes equal to your CHA modifier (min. 2).

Blaze of Glory – You can draw from your own well of strength to deal massive damage, devastating any unfortunate creatures near to you at the time.

When you do you drop to 1 hp, and expend hit points in your Lay on Hands pool up to half of the maximum number of hit points rounded up (e.g. at 15th level you have a maximum of 75 hp in your LOH pool, so you can expend up to 38 of them).

Every creature within 10 ft. of you must make a CON saving throw against your Spell Save DC; if a creature fails its saving throw it takes radiant damage equal to the amount of hp you exhausted from you Lay on Hands pool. 

Once you use this feature you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest. You cannot use this feature if you have less than 10 hp left.

Fury Incarnate – When you reach 20th level in this class, you can call upon your chosen God to fill you with the power you need to overcome your enemies, and satiate your bloodlust.

For the rest of your turn any time you deal damage that includes damage modifiers, add the value rolled on the die at the start of the turn to the damage roll as a modifier. The additional damage you deal this way is Radiant damage.
