Preface

This began as a simple passion project by one guy who thought to himself "hey, it'd be kinda cool to play dungeons and dragons in the world of One Piece. I wonder if that's possible?" and then just went along with it. What started out as a simple rework of a few classes and some rewording of features and feats to better fit in the designated setting eventually turned into almost a hundred pages of homebrew.

Why dungeons and dragons, of all systems? Accessibility more so than anything, 5th edition is a system that is ever so easy to pick up and enjoy, while still having enough room for creative veterans to play around for years. This document provides all the necessary additions and revisions to the base system to seamlessly tie it into the world of Eiichiro Oda's brainchild, and dungeon masters should find everything they need in order to run games in the setting of One Piece.

Naturally, a lot of work and passion has been put into this project, but it's most likely always going to remain a work in progress as ideas form and changes are to be made. Whoever's reading this, hope you enjoy the contents as much as the author did enjoy writing this document, and let it urge you to set sail for the Grand Line!


Chapter 1: Races

The world of One Piece is home to a myriad of unique humanoid races that make their home on the four seas and beyond. Life thrives from the bottom of the ocean beneath the Red Line to far above the clouds in the flying lands of Skypiea, each housing a civilization with a rich history and and uncertain futures.

With a world consisting of scattered islands dotting an endless ocean, it is no strange occurrence that many are drawn to a life of adventure, setting sail into the horizon as pirates and freedom-seekers. Though very different in shape and story, one thing all races of the world have in common is the call to adventure that rings within the hearts of the select few, regardless of their origins.

Walking the streets of a port town in the Grand Line, one could sometimes find more than humans in the crowd if one just knows where to look for them. The blue-tinted skin of a stout fishman as he hauls a massive chest of goods to the market; the skulking shadow of a cat mink as she curiously explores the alleys and corners of this strange world; the sharp, intimidating tattoos of a shandian sky islander that cast wary glances at the crowd around him.

Languages

The world of One Piece is unique in that all creatures and races share the same language.

Languages are thus not taken into consideration in this system, with the exception of poneglyphs, which is a written language of which knowledge has long since been lost, save for very few dedicated individuals.


Performing in the town square is a band of entertainers, all part of the long-arm tribe, using their elongated limbs to perform acts of acrobatics and dexterity to the cheer of a crowd. A group of long-leg humans push their way to the front of the crowd, already towering over it, intent on starting some trouble. And in the harbor, a curious mermaid peeks her head above the water for but a moment, starry eyes gazing upon the moored ships and colourful flags, before she dives back beneath the waves before anyone spots her.

Choosing a Race

While humans are the most common by a long shot to be found in the world, they still live side-by-side with other races even if they aren't always aware of it. Even then, human tribes are so diverse that distinctions between them are more than simply cultural. Whatever choice you make, your character remains a part of the living breathing, world.

The call to adventure can ring true in the heart of any creature in the world, however some races produce more adventurers than others. Humans and fishmen are more likely to go to sea as pirates in search of dreams, treasure or ambition but your choice of race should not be hindered by conventions. Minks and merfolk are curious by nature, and sky islanders are not faint of heart either, so even if they typically do not fly a jolly roger there's nothing stopping them from doing so.

Human

By far the most numerous of all races are the humans. Inhabiting the entire world from the a hundred and seventy kingdoms to the halls of Marie Geoise upon the Red Line, the humans have spread all across the four seas.

Few humans are defined by their race, however. A varied kind from every echelon of society, one would find it difficult to place a blanket terms on humans as a whole. They can be fearless heroes, intrepid adventurers, craven villains despicable tyrants, pirates seeking freedom or marine soldiers seeking order. The only surefire way to know where a human's heart lies is to look at the flag she flies, which can be as manifold as the stars upon the night sky.

Restless Hearts

Among all the races, humans are the most likely to set off on the sea in search of adventure, riches, purpose or power. Even considering their vast majority in the world, there is still something within their hearts that calls them to the sea.

Because of this, many different tribes of humans have appeared all over the world, each with their own distinct culture and quirks. Each single island is more like a country in its own right with customs and history unique to the people living there since centuries back.

History of Conflict

Among the one hundred and seventy kingdoms that make up the world government, all but one is a human kingdom giving the human race an indiscriminate claim to being the dominant race in the world. Adding to that, they are also the most technologically advanced and organized race, giving them a massive geopolitical edge in the state of the world.

However, human history is one of strife and conflict, both amongst themselves and against other races. Their society is heavily fractured by deep-seated socioeconomical inequalities; the world nobles can make any demands with the world government's full support, while countries who cannot pay the taxes are left at the mercy of pirates and marauders. While life on the sea is a harsh one, it is at the very least an equal existence for all who travel upon it.

Human Traits

As a human, you have the following traits.

Ability Score Increase. One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and another one increases by 1. Alternatively, three ability scores of your choice increase by 1.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Long-arm Tribe

Humans of the Long-arm tribe possess an additional elbow in their arms, extending their reach much greater than other tribes. This typically gives them a lanky appearence that distinguishes them from other humans.

Long-leg Tribe

Humans of the Long-leg tribe are defined by their abnormally long and powerful legs, which they are quite proud of and happily show off by eschewing legwear. They have a longstanding rivalry with the Long-arm tribe.

Alighment. Three-eye humans have no specific tendencies towards neither good nor evil.

Keeper of Secrets. You have proficiency in the Deception and Insight skills.

Third Eye. You have advantage on saving throws against being blinded or charmed, and on all ability checks you make to see through illusions and mirages.

Secret Potential. When you gain an Ability Score Increase, you are eligible to choose the Voice of All Things haki feat in place of increasing an ability score.

Fishman

Ten times stronger than the common man and undisputed monarchs of the sea, the fishmen of the world oceans were for the longest time the boogeymen of sailors everywhere. Tall and proud warriors of the deep, the fishmen share a troubled history of racial discrimination and slavery at the hands of humans, scars that even centuries of peace with the surface world has yet to completely mend.

A lot of the prejudice against them stem from how they differ from humans, looking monstrous to the common man because of their half-fish, half-human physiology, but also because of their renowned physical superiority and ability to fight as well on land as in water.

Despite their fearsome reputation as pirates and marauders, the fishmen are not a simple or militaristic race of savages that many humans believe them to be. A fishman dedicated to a crew or a cause tends to be loyal to a fault, willing to fight to the bitter end for what they believe in.


A history of strife

For centuries, the fishmen were considered little more than any other monster in the oceans by the humans and were treated accordingly, only welcome on the surface world as slaves if they weren't killed on sight. Eventually, the world government realized the benefits of peace between the races and made several attempts to mend the relationship between humans, fishmen and merfolk. Thanks in part to the actions of the fishman pirate Fisher Tiger and the merfolk queen Otohime, a peaceful coexistance was finally reached after decades of negotiations.

However, the old ways still rings loudly in the ears of both humans and fishmen alike, who have had a hard time leaving the past behind. Many humans, especially nobles, still consider fishmen to be nothing but monsters and fish. Conversely, many fishmen subscribe to the notion that their superior strength and adaptability means they should be ruling over humans, who they consider weak and cowardly.

Even so, a strained peace still aided in softening the animosity between the races, and more fishmen and humans alike are beginning to wake up to the idea of co-existance, slowly beginning to see eachother as kin rather than enemies.

Champions of the Sea

In water, fishmen are second to none. Already on land a fishman can boast the strength of ten common humans, and this strength is only amplified by their amphibious nature. A fishman possesses both the gills of a fish and the respiratory system of a human, allowing them to breath air and water without issue, while dorsal fins and webbed hands and feet allow them to move unhindered in water.

In addition to these boons, fishmen have a unique form of martial arts known as Fishman Karate, which emphasizes the use of water to their advantage. It's a martial art that grows even more potent while near or submerged in water. This unique fighting style is only taught at certain dojos on fishman island and has a near mythical reputation that reaches even the surface world above.

Fishman Traits

As a fishman, you have the following traits.

Ability Score Increase. One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and another one increases by 1. Alternatively, three ability scores of your choice increase by 1.

Age. Fishmen reach adulthood in their late teens and live as long as humans.

Alignment. Fishmen display extremes on the moral scales, with good-aligned fishmen typically being chaotic good with a great emphasis on personal freedom, while evil-aligned fishmen tend towards lawful evil with the ideals that their superior physique means they should rule over other races.

Size. Fishmen vary greatly in size and typically stand taller than humans at 7-8 feet up to 15 feet. Your size is medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet, and you have a swimming speed equal to your walking speed.

Aquatic Adaption. You can breathe air and water. You have advantage on all Strength (Athletic) ability checks made while in water.

Darkvision. Accustomed to the dark ocean floors where light is scarce, you have darkvision out to 60 feet and can see in dim light as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Powerful Build. You count as one size larger when determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can push, drag, or lift.

Speech of the Sea. You can communicate simple ideas and words to creatures with a natural swimming speed that are of large size or smaller. Most sealife lack the ability to form or understand complicated messages, but can communicate simple expressions such as fear, hunger or joy.

Subraces. Choose between sharptooth, stronghide or multipod.

Sharptooth

Sharptooth fishmen typically have the physiological traits of a predator, such as a shark or killer whale. They use their sharp teeth or spines to tear enemies asunder if provoked.

Frightening. You have proficiency in the Intimidation skill.

Natural Weapons. You have sharp claws, teeth or spines that can be used as weapons. Your unarmed strikes deal slashing damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier instead of the normal damage.


Stronghide

Stronghide fishmen develop powerful bodies that further amplify their innate strength and endurance, allowing them to become remarkable martial artists and fighters.

Natural Athlete. You have proficiency in the Athletics skill.

Strong Body. Your hit point maximum increases by 1, and it increases by 1 every time you gain a level.

Multipod

Multipod fishmen are recognizable by their extra arms, possessing as many as eight functioning limbs.

Manual Agility. You have proficiency in the Sleight of Hand skill.

Extra Arms. You have up to four additional arms. Each arm can hold a single item that can fit in one hand. When engaged in two-weapon fighting, you can still only make one attack as a bonus action. You cannot engage in two-weapon fighting while wielding a weapon with the two-handed property. Additionally, you can only benefit from one equipped shield even if you are wielding multiple shields.

Merfolk

Merfolk are humanoid creatures with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a marine creature, typically a fish or an octopus. Unlike fishmen, the human side of merfolk does not necessarily bear any piscine features, though it is not unheard of for some merfolk to have more marine traits such as fins or webbed fingers.

Related to the fishmen, merfolk make their home beneath the Red Line on fishman island. The two races exist in harmony, sharing a similar difficult history with the surface world and the races that inhabit it. But whereas fishmen are feared and infamous for being savages, merfolk have a much more favorable reputation among humans as beings of extreme beauty. Sadly, this reputation only serves to make them more desirable as slaves on the underworld markets, leading to many cases of abductions at the hands of pirates.

Despite these unfortunate circumstances, merfolk have remained firmly open-minded towards all other races, including humans. Kind-hearted and gregarious to a fault, merfolk have a reputation for saving drowning sailors from the depths only to disappear moments afterwards.

Deep Sea Monarchs

While not as physically imposing or martially bent as fishmen, merfolk have a keen eye for politics and diplomacy, being the current rulers of Fishman Island under King Neptune. While the common fishman has the advantage in a one on one fight, the merfolk's ability to organize and manage a standing army makes them the obvious figureheads in politics with the surface world.

Merfolk are very hospitable and welcoming to travelers that reach Fishman Island, which is a common occurance as it's the only way to travel from Paradise to the New World. As long as visitors come in peace and with no ill intent, the merfolk will graciously host any traveler during their stay whether they are pirates or marine soldiers.

While peaceful, merfolk are not naive however. If provoked, merfolk will respond in kind if their hands are forced, many of their soldiers and warriors having mastered a unique form of Fishman Karate unique to their kind. Being the fastest swimmers of all intelligent races, coupled with their organized military, make merfolk a force to be reckoned with even when battle is at hand.

Gregarious Helpers

Merfolk delight in song, music and all forms of community-based entertainment. Their's is a tight-knit community that lacks social stigma or class differences, each individual treated as a cherished part of the community as long as they are honest and kind-hearted in turn.

Merfolk and fishmen typically consider themselves kin of eachother and rarely make a difference between the two. Interbreeding between the two races has an equal chance of producing either a merfolk or fishman child, and most carry genes from both species with them resulting in a sense of unity and equality between the two races.

Merfolk may still have some reservations about humans, but these prejudices typically stem from fear or ignorance, which can usually be remedied through nothing but a few minutes of pleasant conversation. Most merfolk would much rather make a new friend rather than an enemy, and typically treat strangers as potential friends or allies with more open-mindedness than most other species.

Merfolk's friendly and approachable nature isn't limited only to other sapient beings. All mermaids can communicate and speak with fish, having a much easier time doing so than even fishmen. They can use this ability to call fish to their aid, which can be used for scouting or to gather information on the surrounding waters.

Mink

The mysterious mink tribe is a race of fur-covered, anthropomorphic humanoids from the "phantom island" of Zou in the New World, a moving island situated atop the back of an ancient, millenium old elephant known as Zunesha. Because of its unique location, Zou is impossible to find with a logpose, hiding the minks away from the eyes of the world as a result. While most humans go their entire lives without ever seeing a mink, the rumours of Zou's formidable sentinels carry far and wide across the new world, telling tales of the minks' mythical ability to generate electricity and transform into vicious beasts beneath the light of the full moon.

Close-knit Community

The island of Zou rests on the back of a giant, millenia-old elephant known as Zunesha. Reaching the island atop this giant is a difficult task, leading to rumours and hearsay telling that minks are isolationist and reclusive. Truthfully however, despite having been hunted for slaves by human pirates in the past, minks are exceptionally welcoming and hospitable to all manners of visitors that come in good faith to their island.

Minks have a tight-knit community on their island, making no difference between themselves regardless of a mink's features. They show affection to eachother through physical contact or acts of generosity, having next to no concept of personal space even between relative strangers. "Garchu", a common practice among minks, consists of rubbing their temple or cheek against eachother, signifying a greeting or act of gratitude.

Each individual mink takes after a specific fur-covered mammalian creature, and recognize differences in their own kin by referring to canine minks as such, for example. However, mink do not differentiate between eachother, and carnivorous minks live side by side with herbivorous minks. Mink society places a stigma on eating animals with fur, and as such their diet primarily consists of reptlies, fish and greens found on the island of Zou.

Moonlit Warriors

All minks tend to be stronger than normal humans, possessing formidable physical abilities typical to their animalistic side, such as strong legs that can scale trees in a single leap, or powerful muscles for physical labor. Their abilities do not remarkably detoriate with age, and this combined with an effective metabolism and recovery rate makes them formidable fighters in battle.

Adding to that, minks have two additional abilities that serve to differentiate them from humans: Electro, the ability to generate powerful electrical charges through their fur, and Sulong, the ability to transform into an even more powerful form while under the light of the full moon.

Sulong is the most feared ability of the minks, known to transform them into unstoppable, rampaging beasts. Only a few minks master this ability, as loss of control can result in the death of not just their enemies, but their allies and even themselves as well. While transformed, a mink grows increasingly ferocious as their fur grows out, their muscles tense and their claws extend, becoming a frightful sight to behold by their enemies.

Mink Traits

As a mink, you have the following traits.

Ability Score Increase. One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and another one increases by 1. Alternatively, three ability scores of your choice increase by 1.

Age. Minks reach adulthood in their late teens and live as long as humans.

Size. Minks vary greatly in size due to their animal heritage, but typically are comparable to humans. Your size is medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 35 feet.

Darkvision. You are accustomed to the dark forests of Zou. You have darkvision out to 60 feet and can see in dim light as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Electro. All minks can generate electricity through their fur. Once per turn when you hit with a melee weapon attack, you can choose to deal lightning damage instead of the weapon's normal damage. When you do so, the target then cannot take reactions until the start of your next turn.

Inner Beast. You can draw upon your bestial blood to greatly boost your speed and strength for a short time. As a bonus action, you can grant yourself advantage on all Strength and Dexterity-based ability checks for 1 minute. During this time, your speed increases by 10 and when you use your Electro trait, you deal additional lightning damage equal to your level. You must finish a long rest before you can use this trait again.

If the full moon is visible when you make this transformation, you enter Sulong form for the duration, increasing both your Strength and Dexterity scores by 3. This increase can exceed an ability score of 20, but not 30. When this sulong form ends, you suffer one level of exhaustion.

Sky Islander

Far removed from the seas of blue and shores of sand lies a collection of islands resting in the balmy embrace of the clouds above, known to all as the mythical sky islands. Here, the "water" is white and made of strange, buoyant clouds that flow just like seawater, while the "earth" is made from springy, firm yet soft clouds that can support entire cities and forests.

To most residents of the "blue" sea, as the world below the clouds is known to the inhabitants of sky islands, the idea of there existing a world above in the clouds is one of fantasy and myth. Anyone who would claim otherwise is often met with ridicule and possibly even scorn, for the idea of another sea existing above them is ludicrous to most humans.

Yet anything a man can imagine is a possible reality. Hailing from these mythical islands are a tribe of humanoids known collectively as sky islanders, though they rarely refer to themselves as such. Atop the clouds lies an endless stretch of islands, kingdoms and tribes with their own unique history. The largest known society being that of Skypiea, situated ten thousand meters above the waters of Paradise in the Grand Line. Home to the skypieans and shandia, distinguishable by the small wings upon their back, it is the largest settlement found upon the clouds of the world. Only reachable through one of two ways, the long and arduous "High West" or the extremely dangerous "Geyser Stream", it is a land that see few visitors.


Dials and Cloudscapes

Daily life on the sky islands revolve around the use of dials, a type of shells left by a species of shellfish unique to the sky islands. These dials have the unique ability to store different forms of energy and matter, such as the breath dial which can store air currents or the flame dial which can store open, living fire. As long as the shell is intact, a dial can be recharged indefinitely as long as it is subjected to the energy or matter that it can store, as each dial can only handle one specific element.

Dials are more than simple tools to sky islanders. With the lack of naturally occuring earth in their world, their entire society has been shaped around the use of dials. It is used to power what is known as "wavers", unique dial-driven vehicles that can easily traverse the cloud sky; as weapons used by fighters and warriors to produce force, fire or even cutting winds; to shape clouds like wood and stone to make foundations for buildings and roads; and as simple household items such as heat dials to cook, or light dials to illuminate rooms.

Holy Vearth

Earth does not appear naturally on sky islands. Though plants can grow on the clouds they shape, they cannot germinate through them like they can in earth. As a result, sky islanders consider earth to be the most precious substance of all and has exalted it to holy status, referring to it as "vearth".

The largest mass of earth can be found in Skypiea, known as Upper Yard among the locals. For the longest time since it arrived on the sky island 400 years ago, it was the seat of the Skypiean political and religious leader known as "god". Skypieans and the original inhabitants of the island, the shandia, fought a long and tolling war over the island, which was only settled recently with the banishment of the old god Enel and his followers, the last of the birkan sky islanders.

Augmented

Across the four seas and the Grand Line, scientists of every mindset and morality seek to push humankind to the next level, oftentimes at the cost of their own humanity as much as that of their subjects. To this end exist the augmented: A race of humanoids empowered with technological or biological enhancements that stand at the apex of evolution. The augmented exist as something beyond that of mere men and beasts, regardless of whether they originally wanted to or not.

Scientific Menagerie

The existence of augmented humanoids is a very recent thing, appearing as the result of scientific progress. Doctors, scientists and madmen alike have always sought to overcome the limits of the human body, and to this end they created the augmented from already living, or sometimes even dead, creatures. Augmented vary greatly in appearence, however they can typically be categorized into groups determined on their design. If an augmented had body parts replaced with machinery, they are considered a cyborg; if an augmented had body parts replaced with those of wild animals, they are considered a chimera; if the augmented was given no visual modifications and instead only returned to life from a dead state, they are considered a revived; and finally, if an augmented were only given internal or genetical modifications with no visible changes, they are considered to be an artificial human.

Made to Order

Most augmented were created for a singular purpose, such as the pacifistas created by the world government or the zombies raised by Dr. Hogback. Most augmented were normal people at first, and many had no say in their transformation into augmented. Unscrupulous scientists have no qualms about using slaves or kidnapped civilians for their experiments, and many augmented are either in service of these people or on the run from their forces. True freedom is a luxury that many augmented have never tasted in their life.

Augmented Traits

As an augmented, you have the following traits.

Ability Score Increase. One ability score of your choice increases by 2, and another one increases by 1. Alternatively, three ability scores of your choice increase by 1.

Age. Augmented are typically created from already living humanoids, and inherit the lifespan of their former life.

Alignment. Subservient augmented are almost always lawful neutral, while those that have broken free of their bonds and old masters usually gravitate towards chaotic alignments.

Size. Augmented vary greatly in size depending on the mold from which they were created. Your size is your choice of small or medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Powerful Build. You count as one size larger when determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can push, drag, or lift.

Subraces. Choose between cyborg, artifical human, chimera or revived.

Fuel. You do not require food or water to sustain yourself. Instead, you require a specific kind of fuel that you designate upon creation. This fuel can be any commonly occuring substance, such as lamp oil, coal or soda, and you require half a gallon (if liquid) or half a pound (if solid) to gain enough nourishment to sustain you for one day.

Integrated Armor. The metallic parts of your body act as natural armor for you. While you're not wearing armor, your armor class is calculated as 13 + your Dexterity modifier. You can use your natural armor to determine your AC if the armor you wear would leave you with a lower AC.

Integrated Toolbox. You can integrate a weapon, item or a set of tools into, or remove such an item from, your body with 10 minutes of uninterrupted work, which can be done as part of short or long rest. Once integrated into your body, you can draw or stow the item as part of any action that involves its use, and you cannot be disarmed of it against your will. You can have a number of integrated weapons or tools equal to 1 + your proficiency bonus, and if you try to integrate a new item while at your maximum limit, the attempt fails.

Accelerated Healing. When you regain hit points for any reason, including using hit dice, you regain a number of additional hit points equal to your proficiency bonus.

You can use these natural weapons to make unarmed strikes, and they deal 1d4 + your Strength or Dexterity modifier piercing damage on hit.

Chapter 2: Classes

People who take to the seas are all individuals with the potential for greatness in their hearts. They are the wills with which history will be shaped, standing out from the crowd as heroes, villains and simple seekers of freedom. Classes as they exist in this setting represents a character's primary skillset and the abilities they rely on in order to make their dream a reality.

Arcana = Engineering

The Intelligence (Arcana) skill is replaced in this setting with the Intelligence (Engineering) skill. When the DM calls for a skill ability check involving technology, inventions or clockworks, Intelligence (Engineering) is used to determine how well they perform.

Spells = Creations

In the world of One Piece, spellcasting is nonexistent. However, in order to maintain the mechanical diversity of the playstyles presented in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition, spellcasting is thematically rebranded in this system as Creativity. This is, for the most part, a simple change in terminology for the sake of immersive roleplay, however a few classes are changed as a result of this and others still are unfortunately removed completely.

Creativity (Spellcasting). The world of One Piece is full of gifted creators who can create spell-like effects through the use of gadgets and items. Spellcasting is referred to as Creativity, however its functionality is virtually the same as in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

Creation (Spell). Spells and Spell Slots are referred to as Creations and Creation Slots, however their functionality are virtually the same as in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

Trick (Cantrip). Cantrips are referred to as Tricks, however their functionality is virtually the same as in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

Devil Fruits (Innate Spellcasting). The fantastical power of devil fruits manifest in those who consume it. These individuals gain the ability to create fantastical effects and powers, which fill a similar function to innate spellcasting found in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

Creative Ability (Spellcasting Ability). Spellcasting Ability is referred to as Creative Ability, however its functionality is virtually the same in both instances and as in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

Routine Usage (Ritual Casting). Ritual Casting is referred to as Routine Usage, however its functionality is virtually the same as in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.

  • Armor: Light armor, medium armor, shields
  • Weapons: Simple weapons, martial weapons
  • Tools: none

  • Saving Throws: Strength, Constitution
  • Skills: Choose two from Animal Handling, Athletics, Intimidation, Nature, Perception, and Survival

Equipment

  • (a) a greataxe or (b) any martial melee weapon
  • (a) two handaxes or (b) any simple weapon
  • An explorer's pack and four javelins

Rage

In battle, you fight with primal ferocity. On your turn, you can enter a rage as a bonus action.

While raging, you gain the following benefits if you aren’t wearing heavy armor:

  • You have advantage on Strength Checks and Strength saving throws.
  • When you make a melee weapon attack using Strength, you gain a bonus to the damage roll that increases as you gain levels as a barbarian, as shown in the Rage Damage column of the Barbarian table.
  • You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

If you are able to use creations, you can’t use them or concentrate on them while raging.

Your rage lasts for 1 minute. It ends early if you are knocked unconscious or if your turn ends and you haven’t attacked a hostile creature since your last turn or taken damage since then. You can also end your rage on your turn as a bonus action.

Once you have raged the number of times shown for your barbarian level in the Rages column of the Barbarian table, you must finish a long rest before you can rage again.

Unarmored Defense

While you are not wearing any armor, your armor⁠ class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a shield and still gain this benefit.


Reckless Attack

Starting at 2nd Level, you can throw aside all concern for defense to attack with fierce desperation. When you make your first attack on your turn, you can decide to a⁠ttack recklessly. Doing so gives you advantage on melee weapon a⁠ttack rolls using Strength during this turn, but atta⁠ck rolls against you have advantage until your next turn.

Danger Sense

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 creations. To gain this benefit, you can’t be blinded, deafened, or incapacitated.

Primal Path

At 3rd level, you choose a path that shapes the nature of your rage. Path of the Berserker, Path of the Blade Master, Path of the Cannoneer and Path of the Challenger are detailed at the end of the class description. Path of the Totem Warrior can be found in chapter 3 of the player's handbook, while Path of the Storm Herald can be found in chapter 1 of Xanathar's Guide to Everything.

Ability Score Improvement

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.

Extra Attack

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Fast Movement

Starting at 5th level, your speed increases by 10 feet while you aren’t wearing heavy armor.

Feral Instinct

By 7th level, your instincts are so honed that you have advantage on initiative rolls.

Additionally, if you are surprised at the beginning of combat and aren’t Incapacitated, you can act normally on your first turn, but only if you enter your rage before doing anything else on that turn.

Brutal Critical

Beginning at 9th level, you can roll one additional weapon damage die when determining the extra damage for a critical hit with a melee attack.

This increases to two additional dice at 13th level and three additional dice at 17th level.

Relentless Rage

Starting at 11th level, your rage can keep you fighting despite grievous wounds. If you drop to 0 hit points while you’re raging and don’t die outright, you can make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw. If you succeed, you drop to 1 hit point instead.

Each time you use this feature after the first, the DC increases by 5. When you finish a short or long rest, the DC resets to 10.

Persistent Rage

Beginning at 15th level, your rage is so fierce that it ends early only if you fall unconscious or if you choose to end it.

Indomitable Might

Beginning at 18th level, if your total for a Strength check is less than your Strength score, you can use that score in place of the total.

Primal Champion

At 20th level, you embody the power of the wilds. Your Strength and Constitution scores increase by 4. Your maximum for those scores is now 24.

Primal Paths

Rage burns in every barbarian’s heart, a furnace that drives him or her toward greatness. Different barbarians attribute their rage to different sources, however. For some, it is an internal reservoir where pain, grief, and anger are forged into a fury hard as steel. Others see it as a spiritual blessing, a gift of a totem animal. To a few, rage is a weakness unless controlled, honed like the blade they wield to cut only when they wish for it do so.

Path of the Berserker

For some barbarians, rage is a means to an end—that end being violence. The path of the berserker is a path of untrammeled fury, slick with blood. As you enter the berserker’s rage, you thrill in the chaos of battle, heedless of your own health or well-being.

Frenzied Attack

Starting when you choose this path at 3rd level, you can go into a frenzy when you rage. As a bonus action while raging, you can make one weapon attack with a weapon you are currently wielding. When you do so, you lose the damage resistances granted by your rage until the start of your next turn.

Mindless Rage

Beginning at 6th level, you can’t be charmed or frightened while raging. If you are charmed or frightened when you enter your rage, the effect is suspended for the duration of the rage.


Intimidating Glare

Beginning at 10th level, you can use your action to frighten someone with your menacing presence. When you do so, choose one creature that you can see within 30 feet of you. If the creature can see or hear you, it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw (DC equal to 8 + your Proficiency Bonus + your Strength modifier) or be frightened of you until the end of your next turn. On subsequent turns, you can use a bonus action to extend the duration of this effect on the frightened creature until the end of your next turn. This effect ends if the creature ends its turn out of line of sight or more than 60 feet away from you.

If the creature succeeds on its saving throw, you can’t use this feature on that creature again for 24 hours.

Retaliation

Starting at 14th level, when you take damage from a creature that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against that creature.

Path of the Blade Master

The rage of a blade master is not the mad screams of a berserker or the primal howls of a totem warrior, but a silent, merciless and deadly intent that suffuses their blades like an aura. Blade masters draw on their rage like other barbarians, but they wield it like another blade rather than give in to it, unleashing the full power of their fury without losing sight of their goal.

While swords are the most popular weapon for these barbarians, they are not restricted to such weapons alone. The philosophy behind their power can be applied to any weapon of their choice.

Fighting Style

Starting when you chose this path at 3rd level, you learn how to properly wield your weapon of choice. Choose a fighting style from the list below. You can’t take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.

Dueling

When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

Great Weapons Fighting

When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

Two-weapon Fighting

When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.

Masterful Hew

Also at 3rd level, you learn special techniques that leverage your mastery of martial combat mixed with your primal strength. Once on each of your turns when you hit with a weapon attack, you can perform a special attack called a hew, chosing from the list below.

Cleaving Hew

Each other creature other than yourself within 5 feet of it suffer damage equal to your Strength modifier. The damage is the same type as the weapon used for the attack. If you are raging when you perform this hew, you add your rage damage bonus to this damage.

Crushing Hew

You can additionally make a grapple or shove attack against it as part of the same attack. If you are raging when you perform this hew, you count as one size larger for the purpose of this grapple or shove.

Savage Hew

You can roll damage for the attack twice and choose the higher number. If you were raging when you perform this hew, you add double your rage damage bonus to this attack.

Sprinting Hew

You can move up to half your speed, either before or after making the attack. If you were raging when you perform this hew, your movement does not provoke opportunity attacks.

Steel Rending

Also at 6th level, your focused fury is honed like an edge, allowing you cut through stone and steel as if it was paper.

Your weapon attacks ignore any resistance to bludgeoning, piercing or slashing damage that isn't Haki-based, and all weapons are considered to have the siege property to you.

Tempered Rage

Beginning at 6th level, constant wrestling with your rage and fury has made you fully in control of your emotions. You gain proficiency in Wisdom saving throws. If you're already proficient, you gain proficiency in your choice of Intelligence or Charisma saving throws.

Proof of Mettle

Beginning at 10th level, you can make a statement when you deal a killing blow to a creature. While raging and you score a critical hit or reduce a creature to 0 hit points with a weapon attack, you can release a surge of fear around you. Each creature of your choice within 20 feet must make a Wisdom saving throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength modifier) or be frightened of you for 1 minute or until it can no longer see you. A creature can repeat this saving throw at the end of its turn, ending the effect on itself on a successful save.

You can use this feature only once per rage, and must expend another use of rage to use it again.

Inexorable Prowess

Beginning at 14th level, you never have disadvantage on weapon attacks against creatures you can see while you are raging.

Path of the Cannoneer

Every ship needs someone to man the cannons, but barbarians who follow the path of the cannoneer won't settle for leaving their boomstick behind on the ship. Part genius and part madness compels them to sling the massive gun over their shoulder and bring it with them into battle.

Boomstick

At 3rd level, you've trained your body to withstand the recoil of smaller cannons. You gain proficiency with cannons and improvised weapons, and can now wield the swivel gun (Chapter 4) as a weapon, treating it as a ranged improvised weapon with the loading, heavy and two-handed properties. While wielded in your hands, a swivel gun has a misfire score of 3, reload 1 and range 60/240. You are proficient with swivel guns and add your Strength modifier to the attack and damage rolls. Additionally, you benefit from Reckless Attack when making ranged attacks with swivel guns, and can add your bonus Rage damage to these attack. Later when you gain your Brutal Critical feature, it applies to ranged attacks with swivel guns as well. When you use Reckless Attack, the misfire score of any swivel gun you're wielding triples until the start of your next turn.

You can also use the bulk of the cannon to strike at enemies in melee range. In this instance, the swivel gun acts as an improvised weapon that deals 2d6 bludgeoning damage on hit and has the heavy and two-handed properties.

The massive bulk of the cannon makes it unwieldy to use. You have disadvantage on all ranged attack rolls with the swivel gun while you're not raging.

Crazed Bravado

Beginning at 6th level, you've grown used to the burning of hot iron and thunderous boom of cannons. You gain resistance to fire damage and thunder damage, and immunity to the deafened condition.

Additionally, you maintain your rage even if you don't make an attack or take damage on your turn if you use your action to fix a swivel gun that has misfired.

Pack Mule

At 10th level, lugging a cannon around has granted you immense physical strength. You gain the following benefits.

  • Your carrying capacity (including maximum load and maximum lift) is doubled, and you have advantage on Strength Checks made to push, pull, lift, or break objects⁠.
  • When pushed or moved against your will, you can use your reaction to reduce the distance moved by a number of feet equal to your Strength score.
  • You have advantage on Constitution saving throws against exhaustion.

Blastback

At 14th level, your aim has gotten good enough that you can send enemies flying with your cannon.

Once per turn while raging and when you hit a creature with a weapon attack using a weapon with the heavy property, you can force the creature to make a Strength saving throw. The DC for the saving throw is calculated as 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength modifier. On a failed save, a creature is pushed up to 15 feet away from you.

Path of the Challenger

Most barbarians seek out the most brutal weapon they can find to wield in battle. Those that follow the path of the challenger has come to the conclusion that their own muscles are the deadliest weapon of all. Perhaps the craziest of all barbarians, these pugilists rush into battle with neither weapon nor armor, their rage more like a euphoric laughter than a roaring howl as they revel in the battle ahead.

Fists of Fury

At 3rd level, the strike of your fists grow more potent, and each punch resounds a challenge to the creature you strike.

You can roll a d6 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strikes. If you aren't wielding a weapon or a shield, you can roll a d8 instead.

Additionally when you hit a creature with an unarmed strike while raging, that creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against creatures other than you until the start of your next turn.

Challenger's Response

Beginning at 6th level, your response to fear is not to run away, but to punch harder. While frightened, you can still move towards the source of the frightened effect if you are raging.

Intercepting Strike

At 6th level, your quick reflexes allow you to intercept enemies aiming for your allies.

While raging, when a creature targets an ally within 30 feet with an attack, you can immediately use your reaction to move up to half your speed and make a single unarmed strike against the attacking creature if you're within range. You can take this reaction before the creature rolls to attack.

Psyche Up

At 10th level, you can release a loud bellow that inspires nearby allies.

As a bonus action, you can release a fierce cry that fills allies with courage. Up to ten creatures of your choice gains advantage on attack rolls and immunity to the frightened condition until the start of your next turn. If a chosen creature is frightened when it hears this war cry, the frightened effect is temporarily suspended for the duration of this effect and the creature makes its next saving throw to remove the frightened effect at advantage.

Once you use this feature, you cannot do so again until you finish a long rest.

Death Defying

Beginning at 14th level, you refuse to fall while battle is still at hand.

While you’re raging, having 0 Hit Points doesn’t knock you unconscious. You still must make death saving throws, and you suffer the normal effects of taking damage while at 0 hit points. However, if you would die due to failing death saving throws, you don’t die until your rage ends, and you die then only if you still have 0 hit points.


Path of the Totem Warrior

The Path of the Totem Warrior is a viable choice that appears in the player's handbook. It is a suitable choice for tribal warriors from the fringes of the civilized world, where animal spirits guide the people. With this subclass, you become a ferocious warrior that draws upon the power of bear, eagle or wolf with abilities like the following:

  • A choice between three major spirits: Bear, eagle and wolf, each with their own strengths. Focus on one, or build a totem with aspects of all three beasts.
  • Bear grants you incredible fortitude to stand tall against any attack, strength to lift weights far heavier than the common person, and the ability to intimidate enemies into focusing their attention on you.
  • Eagle grants you boundless speed and agility, the eyesight of an apex predator, and even the ability to take to the skies while raging.
  • Wolf makes you a leader of your pack, able to grant advantage to allies, hunt and track enemies with ease, and knock down enemies you strike.

Path of the Storm Herald

The Path of the Storm Herald is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is a suitable choice for warriors with hidden inner strength, able to draw power from the very elements themselves. With this subclass, you become a whirlwind of elemental powers, be they heat, cold or storm, harnessing the natural world with abilities like the following:

  • The ability to summon a storming aura around yourself when you rage. As you grow stronger, this aura not only harms and hinders enemies but aids your allies as well.
  • The desert aura is one of heat, burning enemies around you every round, lighting the surroundings on fire and sheltering you from fire damage.
  • The sea aura harnesses the storms of the oceans, causing lightning bolts to strike down enemies, allowing you to breathe water as if it was air, and allowing you to strike enemies with the force of a tidal wave.
  • The tundra aura surrounds you with the bitter chill of winter, numbing allies to suffering and reducing the damage they take, freezing water around you and halting enemies that try to escape.

Creativity (Spellcasting)

You have learned to untangle and reshape the fabric of reality in harmony with your music. Your creations are part of your vast repertoire, music that you can tune to different situations. See the bard creation list under "Bard Creations by Level". (Creativity is synonymous with 5th edition Spellcasting. See "Casting a Spell" in the Player's Handbook for the general rules of Spellcasting in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition).

Tricks (Cantrips)

At 1st Level, you know three tricks of your choice from the bard creations list. You learn additional bard tricks of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Tricks Known column of the Bard table.

Creation Slots (Spell Slots)

The Bard table shows how many creation slots you have to play your bard creations of 1st Level and higher. To play one of these creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

For example, if you know the 1st-level creation healing word and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level creation slot available, you can cast healing word using either slot.

Creations Known of 1st Level and Higher (Spells)

You know four 1st-level creations of your choice from the bard creation list.

The Creations Known column of the Bard table shows when you learn more bard creations⁠ of your choice. Each of these creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots, as shown on the table. For instance, when you reach 3rd Level in this class, you can learn one new creation of 1st or 2nd Level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Bard creations you know and replace it with another creation from the bard creation list, which also must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

Creative⁠ Ability (Spellcasting Ability)

Charisma is your creative ability for your Bard creations. Your creations are music and songs that comes from the heart and soul you pour into the performance. You use your Charisma whenever a creation refers to your creative⁠ ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting⁠ the saving throw DC for a bard creation you play and when making an attack roll with one.

Creation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Routine Usage (Ritual Casting)

You can play any bard creation you know as a routine if that creation has the routine tag.

Apparatus (Spellcasting Focus)

You can use a musical instrument (see chapter 5, “Equipment”) as an apparatus for your Bard creations.

Bardic Inspiration

You can inspire others through stirring words or music. To do so, you use a bonus action on your turn to choose one creature other than yourself within 60 feet of you who can hear you. That creature gains one Bardic Insp⁠ira⁠tion die, a d6.

Once within the next 10 minutes, the creature can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes. The creature can wait until after it rolls The D20 before deciding to use the Bardic Insp⁠iration die, but must decide before the DM says whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Bardic Inspiratio⁠n die is rolled, it is lost. A creature can have only one Bardic Inspir⁠ation die at a time.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (a minimum of once). You regain any expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Your Bardic Inspira⁠tion die changes when you reach certain levels in this class. The die becomes a d8 at 5th Level, a d10 at 10th level, and a d12 at 15th level.

Jack of all Trades

Starting at 2nd Level, you can add half your proficiency bonus, rounded down, to any ability check you make that doesn’t already include your proficiency bonus.

Song of Rest

Beginning at 2nd Level, you can use soothing music or oration to help revitalize your wounded allies during a short rest. If you or any friendly creatures who can hear your performance regain hit points at the end of the short rest by spending one or more hit dice, each of those creatures regains an extra 1d6 hit points.

The extra hit points increase when you reach certain levels in this class: to 1d8 at 9th level, to 1d10 at 13th level, and to 1d12 at 17th level.

Bard College

At 3rd Level, you delve into the advanced techniques of a bard college of your choice: the College of Legends and the College of Lore are detailed at the end of the class description. The College of Valor can be found in chapter 3 of the player's handbook, while the College of Swords and College of Whispers can be found in chapter 1 of Xanathar's Guide to Everything. Your choice grants you features at 3rd Level and again at 6th and 14th level.

Expertise

At 3rd level, choose two of your skill proficiencies. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses either of the chosen proficiencies.

At 10th level, you get to choose another 2 skill proficiencies to gain this benefit.

Ability Score Improvement

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.

Font of Inspiration

Beginning when you reach 5th level, you regain all of your expended uses of Bardic Inspiration when you finish a short or long rest.

Countercharm

At 6th level, you gain the ability to use musical notes or words of power to disrupt mind-influencing effects. As an action, you can start a performance that lasts until the end of your next turn. During that time, you and any friendly creatures within 30 feet of you have advantage on saving throws against being frightened or charmed. A creature must be able to hear you to gain this benefit. The performance ends early if you are incapacitated or silenced or if you voluntarily end it (no action required).

Musical Secrets

At 10th level, you've gathered inspiration from creations of a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Choose two creations from any class creation list found in this document, including this one. The creation must be of a level you can use, as shown on the Bard table, or a trick.

The chosen creations count as bard creations for you and are included in the Creations Known column on the Bard table.

You learn two additional creations from any classes at 14th and again at 18th level.

Superior Inspiration

At 20th level, when you roll initiative and have no uses of Bardic Inspiration left, you regain one use.

Bard College

The way of a bard is gregarious. Bards seek each other out to swap songs and stories, boast of their accomplishments, and share their knowledge. Bards form loose associations, which they call colleges, to facilitate their gatherings and preserve their traditions. A bard college is rarely a physical place, though such institutions do exist, but more often than not they are simply a collective term for bards that share similar philosophies and walks of life.

College of Legends

Bards belonging to the college of legends are drawn to powerful personalities, intent on recording the life of extraordinary individuals and immortalizing them through song and music. These daring bards believe that a single powerful will can change the course of history and dedicate themselves to seeing their muse's ambition come true.

While some of these bards have themselves as their own muse, it is far more common for one to find a person or a group sometime in their life that they choose to follow. A musician aboard a pirate ship typically looks upon their captain or their whole crew in this fashion. These bards arm themselves for battle, intent on seeing the legends be made with their own eyes. Even if they don't have eyes.

Bonus Proficiencies

Beginning when you join this college at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with martial weapons.

Brave Charge

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to weave music into melodic battle cries, imbuing allies with strength and endurance.

As a bonus action, you can expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration to sound a call to arms for your allies. Choose a number of creatures that can hear you within 60 feet, up to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one). Each of them gain 5 temporary hit points. Additionally, the next attack an affected creatures makes deals additional damage equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one additional damage).

The number of temporary hit points increases when you reach certain levels in this class, increasing to 8 at 5th level, 11 at 10th level, and 14 at 15th level.

Battle Musician

Starting at 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn. You can replace one of these attacks with a trick, or a Countercharm performance.

Rallying Encore

At 14th level, your music can inspire allies to fight on even as death encroaches upon them.

When you see a friendly creature be reduced to 0 hit points, you can use your reaction to sound a majestic melody that resonates with their spirit. The target instead falls to 1 hit point before it regains a number of hit points equal to your bard level, even if it normally would have died. Any negative effects caused by falling to 0 hit points are negated.

Once you use this feature, you must finish a long rest before you can do so again.

College of Lore

Bards of the college of lore know something about most things, collecting bits of knowledge from sources as diverse as scholarly tomes and peasant tales. Whether singing folk ballads in taverns or elaborate compositions in royal courts, these bards use their gifts to hold audiences spellbound. When the applause dies down, the audience members might find themselves questioning everything they held to be true, from their faith in the priesthood of the local temple to their loyalty to the king.

The college’s members gather in libraries and sometimes in actual colleges, complete with classrooms and dormitories, to share their lore with one another. They also meet at festivals or affairs of state, where they can expose corruption, unravel lies, and poke fun at self-important nobles.

Bonus Proficiencies

When you join the College of Lore at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with three skills of your choice.

Cutting Words

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to use your wit to distract, confuse, and otherwise sap the confidence and competence of others. When a creature that you can see within 60 feet of you makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a damage roll, you can use your reaction to expend one of your uses of Bardic Inspiration, rolling a Bardic Inspiration die and subtracting the number rolled from the creature’s roll. You can choose to use this feature after the creature makes its roll, but before the DM determines whether the attack roll or ability check succeeds or fails, or before the creature deals its damage. The creature is immune if it can’t hear you or if it’s immune to being charmed.

Additional Musical Secrets

At 6th level, you learn two creations of your choice from any class. A creation you choose must be of a level you can cast, as shown on the Bard table, or a trick. The chosen creations count as bard creations for you but don’t count against the number of bard creations you know.

Peerless Skill

Starting at 14th level, when you make an ability check, you can expend one use of Bardic Inspiration. Roll a Bardic Inspiration die and add the number rolled to your ability check. You can choose to do so after you roll the die for the ability check, but before the DM tells you whether you succeed or fail.


College of Valor

The College of Valor is a viable choice that appears in the Player's Handbook. It is a suitable choice for battle skaalds singing of glory and upbeat adventurers who bring a smile to the people they meet. With this subclass, you become a warrior poet equally skilled at battle and entertainment with abilities like the following:

  • Mastery of armor and weapons, allowing you to wade into battle alongside allies with confidence.
  • The ability to boost your allies' damage and armor rating with inspiring words.
  • A choice of attacking multiple times during your turn, or weave magic and steel together into an elegant dance.

College of Swords

The College of Swords is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is a suitable choice for swashbucklers and fencers with a more elegant and musical flair. With this subclass, you become a skilled swordsman that can rival any fighter in a straight-up fight with special techniques and abilities like the following:

  • Mastery over all forms of blades and medium armor, making you a durable and skilled duelist.
  • A choice of a fighting style, using either a single blade or one in each hand.
  • Several flashy flourishes that improve your battle skills by expending Bardic Inspiration die.
  • An additional attack per turn, letting you slice and dice with the best of them.

College of Eloquence

The College of Eloquence is a viable choice that appears in Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. It is a suitable choice for politicians, poets and writers seeking inspiration and adventure upon the high seas using the power of their words, with abilities like the following:

  • A silver tongue unparallelled even by other bards, able to sway or dupe just about anyone they speak to.
  • The ability to know exactly what to say to undermine an enemy's defenses, making them less likely to succeed on their saving throws.
  • An unfailing inspiration that remains in effect if it's not enough to aid an ally in succeeding a task, and eventually allowing them to inspire several creatures at once.

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your role:

  • (a) a dungeoneer's pack or (b) an explorer's pack
  • A simple weapon of your choice and 10 darts

Brawling

At 1st Level, your experience in street fighting gives you mastery of combat styles that use unarmed strikes and brawler weapons, which are improvised weapons and any simple melee weapons⁠ that lacks the two-handed or heavy property.

You gain the following benefits while you are unarmed or wielding only brawler weapons and you aren’t wearing armor or wielding a shield:

  • You can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of your unarmed strikes and brawler weapons.
  • You can roll a d4 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike or brawler weapon. This die changes as you gain brawler levels, as shown in the Brawling column of the Monk table.
  • When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a brawler weapon on your turn, you can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action. For example, if you take the Attack action and attack with a quarterstaff, you can also make an unarmed strike as a bonus action, assuming you haven’t already taken a bonus action this turn.

Unarmored Defense

Beginning at 1st Level, while you are wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier.

Spirit

Starting at 2nd Level, your training allows you to draw upon an inner energy of willpower and grit. Your access to this energy is represented by a number of spirit points. Your brawler level determines the number of points you have, as shown in the Spirit Points column of the Brawler table.

You can spend these points to fuel various spirit features. You start knowing three such features: Flurry of Blows, Patient Defense, and Step of the Wind. You learn more spirit features as you gain levels in this class.

When you spend a spirit point, it is unavailable until you finish a short or long rest, at the end of which you psyche your spirit back to full energy. You must spend at least 30 minutes of the rest doing light exercise to regain your spirit points.

Some of your spirit features require your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature’s Effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

Spirit save DC = 8 + your Proficiency Bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Flurry of Blows

Immediately after you take the Attack action on your turn, you can spend 1 spirit point to make two unarmed strikes as a bonus action.

Patient Defense

You can spend 1 spirit point to take the Dodge action as a bonus action on your turn.

Step of the Wind

At 9th level, you gain the ability to move along vertical surfaces and across liquids on your turn without falling during the move.

Brawling Style

At 3rd level, you settle on a specific brawling style to define your brawling: Daredevil, Fishman Karate, Ninja, Rokushiki Master or Okama Kenpo, all detailed at the end of the class description.

Your fighting style grants you features at 3rd level and then again at 6th, 11th and 17th level.

Deflect Missiles

Starting at 3rd level, you can use your reaction to deflect or catch the missile when you are hit by a ranged weapon attack. When you do so, the damage you take from the att⁠ack is reduced by 1d10 + your Dexterity modifier + your brawler level. If you reduce the damage to 0, you can catch the missile if it is small enough for you to hold in one hand and you have at least one hand free. If you catch a missile in this way, you can spend 1 spirit point to make a ranged att⁠ack with the weapon or piece of ammunition you just caught, as part of the same reaction. You make this atta⁠ck with proficiency, regardless of your weapon proficiencies, and the missile counts as a brawler weapon for the att⁠ack, which has a normal range of 20 feet and a long range of 60 feet.

Ability Score Improvement

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 10th, 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.

Brace for Impact

Beginning at 4th level, you can use your reaction when you fall to reduce any falling damage you take by an amount equal to five times your brawler level.

Extra Attack

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Stunning Strike

Starting at 5th level, you can aim a suckerpunch at the enemy's head. When you hit another creature with a melee weapon attack, you can spend 1 spirit point to attempt a stunning strike. The target must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or be stunned until the end of your next turn.

Evasion

At 7th level, your instinctive agility lets you dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a fireball creation. 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 only half damage if you fail.

Shake it Off

At 7th level, you can use your action to end one effect on yourself that is causing you to be charmed or frightened.

Animal Spirit

Starting at 13th level, your inner spirit burns with passion that even wild animals can understand. You can speak with all beasts and monstrosities, and understand what they say as well. Additionally, you have advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) ability checks you make towards beasts and monstrosities.

Diamond Soul

Beginning at 14th level, your hardened spirit grants you proficiency in all saving throws.

Additionally, whenever you make a saving throw and fail, you can spend 1 spirit point to reroll it and take the second result.

Timeless Body

At 15th level, your spirit sustains you so that you suffer none of the frailty of old age, and you can’t be aged by creations. You can still die of old age, however. Additionally, you no longer require food or water to survive.


Immortal Will

Starting at 18th level, you can spend 4 spirit points as an action to gain resistance to all damage except force damage for 1 minute. During this time, you have advantage on all attack rolls, and attack rolls against you have disadvantage.

Perfect Self

At 20th level, when you roll for initiative and have no spirit points remaining, you regain 4 spirit points.

Brawling Style

Anyone can throw a punch if they try hard enough, but overtime specific brawling styles arose around the world. Each brawling style has a unique origin and philosophy behind it depending on the purpose for which it was developed.

Daredevil

Daredevils are brawlers who fight with complete abandon. However, while they may look unprofessional and unrefined from an outside perspective, a daredevil is defined by the purpose for which they fight, be it personal glory, a greater calling or their friends. Few enemies make for scarier opponents than a daredevil with everything to lose.

Power Strike

Starting at 3rd level, when you make an an unarmed strike as part of the Attack action, you can choose to not add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll. If the attack hits, you gain a bonus to the damage roll equal to twice your proficiency bonus.

Tireless Persistence

Starting at 6th level, your persistence in a fight and unwillingness to give up makes you extremely tough. If you hit a creature with an unarmed strike or a brawler weapon on your turn, you gain a number of temporary hit points equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one), which last until the end of your next turn.

Insurmountable Spirit

At 11th level, you cannot be brought down while your spirit is still burning bright. When you are brought to 0 hit points, you can expend 2 spirit points to remain conscious and take actions as normal. You do not need to make death saving throws in this state. Each time you take damage while in this state, or if you start your turn with 0 hit points, you must expend 2 spirit points or immediately fall unconscious. This state ends when you regain any hit points, and once it ends you cannot enter it again until you finish a long rest.

Finishing Blow

At 17th level, you can wager all your might and willpower into a single, devastating strike. When you hit with an unarmed strike, you can expend a number of spirit points up to half your brawler level (rounded up). For each spirit point you spend, you add one additional brawler die to the damage. If you spend five or more spirit points, you additionally add your brawler level to the amount of damage done.

Fishman Karate

Fishman karate is the signature fighting style of the fishmen. It's a skillful and powerful martial art that becomes even deadlier while underwater. Typically practiced only by fishmen, though there's nothing prohibiting other races from learning this martial art.

Aquatic Brawler

Starting at 3rd level, you gain a swimming speed equal to your walking speed if you don't already have one. Additionally, you can hold your breath for up to 1 hour.

Brick Fist

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to launch a powerful strike that vibrates the water within a creature's body.

As an action, you can touch a creature and force it to make a Constitution saving throw. The creature takes bludgeoning damage equal to one roll of your brawler die + your Wisdom modifier on a failed save, and half as much on a successful one. On a failed save, it is additionally pushed up to 10 feet away from you. This damage cannot be resisted or reduced in any way except with certain Haki feats. When you use this feature, you can spend a number of spirit points up to your proficiency bonus, adding one additional brawler die to the damage for each spirit point spent.

While underwater, a creature without a swimming speed has disadvantage on its saving throw. After using Brick Fist, you can additionally make one unarmed strike as a bonus action, or use Flurry of Blows.

Water Shot

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to harness the moisture in the air, collecting it and hurling it as deadly projectiles.

You gain a new attack option that you can use with the Attack action. This special attack is a ranged attack with a range of 60 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Dexterity or Wisdom modifier (your choice) to its attack and damage rolls. Its damage is bludgeoning, and its damage die is a d4. This die changes as you gain brawler levels, as shown in the Brawling column of the Brawler table.

When you take the Attack action on your turn and use this special attack as part of it, you can spend 1 spirit point to make the special attack twice as a bonus action.

Weaving Rapids

Beginning at 6th level, you learn how to weave between enemies like a rapid current. When you use Step of the Wind, you can move through squares occupied by hostile creatures as if they were difficult terrain. If you end this movement in an already occupied space, you take 1d10 bludgeoning damage and are pushed to the nearest unoccupied square.

Water Heart

At 11th level, you learn a powerful technique to turn the ocean's tide upon your enemies. As an action, you can gather water and hurl it at a point you can see within 120 feet.

Each creature in a 20-foot radius sphere centered on that point must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 2d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save and half as much on a success. On a failed save, a creature additionally falls prone.

As part of this action, you can spend up to 3 spirit points, adding an additional 2d6 damage for each spirit point spent.

Additionally, if you spent at least 1 spirit point, a tube of water connects your position and the center of the sphere, which lasts until the start of your next turn. At your position is the entrance, and at the center of the sphere is the exit. A creature can enter the tube at its entrance and use a bonus action to ride the currents, appearing at an empty square of its choice within 20 feet of the tube's exit.

Vagabond Drill

At 17th level, you've learned the ultimate techniques of fishman karate. When you use Brick Fist, you can target each creature of your choice within a 30 foot cone instead of only a creature you touch. Additionally, if you spend 4 or more spirit points on Brick Fist, each affected creature becomes fatigued on a failed save, forcing it to subtract a d6 from any attack roll or ability check it makes for 1 minute.

A fatigued creature can make a Constitution saving throw at the end of each of its turn, ending the fatigue effect on itself on a successful save.

Ninja

Ninja are the legendary shadow warriors of Wano. Officially known as the Oniwabanshu, they are the eyes and ears of Wano's shogun. Reknowned for their ability to teleport, disappear in puffs of smoke or appear in several places at once, a true ninja will have vanquished his foes before they knew he was there.

Bonus Proficiency

At 3rd level, you gain proficiency with katana, and they count as brawler weapons for you.

Ninjutsu

Beginning at 3rd level, you learn to wield the legendary techniques of ninjutsu: Equal parts mysticism and trickery to beguile and confuse enemies. A ninjutsu technique requires that you expend spirit points when you use it.

You know the Ninpo technique and two other ninjutsu techniques of your choice, listed at the end of the class description. You learn two additional ninjutsu techniques at 6th, 11th and 17th level.

Whenever you learn a new ninjutsu techniques, you can also replace one ninjutsu techniques that you already know with a different technique.

Using Creations. Some ninjutsu techniques allow you to use creations. To use a creation, you use its casting time and follow the rules for using creations, and do not require material components.

Once you reach 5th level in this class, you can spend additional spirit points to increase the level of a ninjutsu technique creation that you use, provided that the creation has an enhanced effect at a higher level, as fog cloud does. The creation’s level increases by 1 for each additional spirit point you spend. For example, if you are a 5th-level brawler and use Smoke Bomb to use fog cloud, you can spend 2 spirit points to use it as a 2nd-level creation (the discipline’s base cost of 1 spirit point plus 1).

The maximum number of spirit points you can spend to use a creation in this way (including its base spirit point cost and any additional spirit points you spend to increase its level) is determined by your monk level, as shown in the Creations and Spirit Points table.

Creations and Spirit Points
Brawler Level Maximum Spirit Points for a Creation
5th-8th 2
9th-12th 3
13th-16th 4
17th-20th 5

Ninjutsu Techniques

The ninjutsu techniques are presented in alphabetical order. If a technique requires a level, you must be that level in this class to learn the discipline.

Conjure the Demon's Visage (11th level required). You can spend 3 spirit points to use fear.

Crawling Spider Sting (6th level required). You can spend 2 spirit points to use hold person.

Death by a Thousand Cuts (17th level required). You can spend 5 spirit points to use steel wind strike.

Dust of the Night's Breeze. You can spend 1 spirit point to use sleep.

Kite of the Four Winds (11th level required). You can spend 3 spirit points to use fly.

Ninpo. You can use your action to create minor, harmless effects within 30 feet, which can trick the unwary. The effect remain for up to 1 minute or until you willingly dismiss it (no action required). You can only have two non-instantaneous effects active at any time.

  • You create a harmless sound, and its volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else’s voice, a lion’s roar, a beating of drums, or any other sound you choose. The sound continues unabated throughout the duration, or you can make discrete sounds at different times before the spell ends.
  • You can create an image of an object — such as a chair, muddy footprints, or a small chest — it must be no larger than a 5-foot cube. The image can’t create sound, light, smell, or any other sensory Effect. Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an i⁠llusion, because things can pass through it.
  • You immediately put out all open, nonmagical flames within range that are attached to a tiny object, such as a torch, a candle or a sconce.
  • You create a harmless sensory effect, such as a flurry of leaves, a puff of smoke, or a billowing wind.

If a creature uses its action to examine the sound or image, the creature can determine that it is an i⁠llusion with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spirit save DC. If a creature discerns the i⁠llusion for what it is, the il⁠lusion becomes faint to the creature.

Pressure Point Strike. You can spend 1 spirit point to use inflict wounds.

Rain of Rending Blades (17th level required). You can spend 5 spirit points to use conjure volley.

Replicant Escape (6th level required). As a reaction when a creature misses you with an attack, you can choose a small or medium object you can see within 30 feet that isn't being worn or carried and spend 1 spirit point to immediately swap places with the object.

Silent Wind Step (6th level required). You can spend 2 spirit points to use misty step.

Shadow Clones. As an action, you can create a number of shadow clones in empty squares within 5 feet of yourself. The number of shadow clones you can create and have active at any time equals your proficiency bonus, and you must spend 1 spirit point for each clone you create above one. Each clone has the exact same appearence and statistics as you, except it only has 1 hit point, no spirit points, cannot take any actions or reactions, and deals no damage with any attacks it makes.

When you move, you can move each of your clones up to your speed in a direction you choose, however a clone can't move further than 30 feet away from you.

When you use Brawling to make an unarmed strike as a bonus action, you can choose to have one of your clones make the attack instead of you. On hit, the target takes no damage from the clone, instead the next attack roll against the target has advantage. When you use Flurry of Blows, you can replace one or both of the attacks with attacks from your clones, targeting the same or a different creature.

A clone lasts for 1 minute, until destroyed, until you start your turn more than 30 feet away from it, or you dismiss it (no action required). The clones look identical to you, but a creature can make an Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spirit save DC. On a successful check, it figures out who the real you are until you use an action to summon more clones.

Shuriken Storm (11th level required). You can spend 3 spirit points to use conjure barrage.

Smoke Bomb. You can spend 1 spirit point to use fog cloud.

Soft Step. As an action, you can lighten your steps for 1 hour by spending 1 spirit point.

When you reach 6th level, you can spend 2 spirit points to use pass without trace.

Spirit Lights (11th level required). You can spend 3 spirit points to use hypnotic pattern.

Twisting Mind Incense (17th level required). You can spend 4 spirit points to use confusion.

Windborne Speed. You can spend 1 spirit point to use zephyr strike.

Rokushiki Master

Rokushiki is a classified martial art practiced by the Navy. It allows the practitioner to move and strike at superhuman levels, having six primary techniques revolving around offense, defense and mobility in combat.

Six Techniques

Beginning at 3rd level, you've mastered a few of the signature techniques of Rokushiki.

Choose three of the following techniques. You gain the benefits of the chosen techniques immediately.

  • Geppo. The distance you can cover with a high jump is tripled, and you only need to move 5 feet before making one. Additionally when you use your Step of the Wind, you can move horizontally through the air using your walking speed. You begin falling if you end your turn in the air.

  • Tekkai. As a reaction when you suffer damage, you can spend 1 spirit point to reduce any damage you suffer by an amount equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one) until the end of your next turn. This effect ends early if you move, use a creation or make a weapon attack during this time.

  • Shigan. As part of making an unarmed strike, you can move up to 10 feet in a straight line before the attack. If you do so, the attack deals piercing damage instead of the normal bludgeoning damage, and you can add one additional brawling die to the damage roll. You can only make this special attack once per turn.

  • Rankyaku. You gain a new attack option that you can use with the Attack action. This special attack is a ranged attack with a range of 60 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Dexterity modifier to its attack and damage rolls. Its damage is slashing, and its damage die is a d4. This die changes as you gain brawler levels, as shown in the Brawling column of the Brawler table. When you take the Attack action on your turn and use this special attack as part of it, you can spend 1 spirit point to make the special attack twice as a bonus action. When you gain the Extra Attack feature, this special attack can be used for any of the attacks you make as part of the Attack action.

  • Soru. As a bonus action on your turn, or as a reaction when a creature misses you with an attack, you can spend 1 spirit point to teleport up to 10 feet to an empty square you can see.

  • Kami-e. As a reaction when a creature hits you with an attack, you can spend 1 spirit point to roll your brawling die and add the roll to your AC against the triggering attack, potentially causing the attack to miss.

When you reach 6th level in this class, you gain the remaining 3 techniques you didn't choose at 3rd level.


Enhanced Technique

At 11th level, you chose two of the six techniques you've mastered to make your specialties. The chosen technique grows stronger as shown below.

  • Geppo. When you use your Step of the Wind, you now gain the effects of both a Dash and a Disengage action.

  • Tekkai. This effect no longer ends early if you move, use a creation or make a weapon attack.

  • Shigan. You now have advantage when you make this special attack, and score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20 on the attack roll.

  • Rankyaku. The range of your special attack increases to 120 and ignores any resistance to slashing damage. The attack now deals double damage to objects and structures, as well.

  • Soru. The distance you can teleport with this technique increases to 20 feet, and you have advantage on the first attack roll you make after teleporting like this.

  • Kami-e. The bonus to your AC granted by this technique now persists until the start of your next turn, not only against the triggering attack. It persists even if the triggering attack still hits.

When you reach 17th level in this class, you gain the remaining four enhanced techniques you didn't choose at 11th level.

Rokuogan

At 17th level, you learn the secret seventh technique of Rokushiki, available only to those who master the common six techniques.

As an action, you can touch a creature and expend up to 6 spirit points. The creature must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 2d10 necrotic damage per spirit point spent on a failed save, and half that on a successful one. If this damage reduces a creature to 0 hit points, it dies immediately.

Special Limitation: Navy Only

Rokushiki is a special martial art taught only to the navy's finest. It is recommended that only navy or navy-affiliated character are allowed to take this subclass. Naturally, Dungeon Masters are allowed to lift this restriction to better fit their idea of a campaign.

Okama Kenpo

Okama kenpo is a kick-focused martial art inspired by dance routines, such as ballet, developed by the inhabitants of the Kamabakka kingdom. While most of its practitioners are okama, that is not a requirement to master it.

Okama Way

Beginning at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with the disguise kit, and may double your proficiency bonus for any tool ability check you make with the kit. You also gain proficiency in the Performance skill.

Additionally, you may use your Charisma score in place of your Wisdom score for the calculations of your Unarmored Defense.

Swan Dance

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to conceal immeasurable strength beneeth the veneer of a distracting dance.

As a bonus action on your turn, you can force a creature to make a Wisdom (Insight) check contested by your Charisma (Performance) check. On a successful check, you have advantage on all weapon attacks against the target until the end of your turn, and can immediately make an unarmed strike against the creature as part of the same bonus action.

Hidden Weaponry

At 6th level, you learn how to hide weapons in your make-up, hair and outfit, where they appear as mundane objects. By taking 10 minutes, you can conceal a number of darts on your person equal to twice your proficiency bonus, incorporating them into your outfit or make-up as nails, earrings, hairpins or other accessories. Additionally, darts are now considered brawler weapons for you.

You can also attempt to disguise larger weapons as mundane items, such as turning a shortsword into a cane or a parasol. You need 1 hour of uninterrupted work per weapon to create a hidden weapon like this. Unlike the darts, these hidden weapons do not necessarily hold up to scrutiny, and a suspicious creature can make an Intelligence (Investigation) check contested by your Charisma (Performance). On a successful check, a creature realizes the object is a weapon.

When you make a weapon attack with a hidden weapon, you have advantage on the first attack roll you make with it against a creature, as long as the target doesn't know it's a weapon.

Elegant Combination

At 11th level, you learn a potent combination attack that ends with an explosive finish.

When you use your Flurry of Blows and hit with both attacks, you can make one additional unarmed strike as part of the same action. If this additional attack hits, the target must make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save, you decide whether the creature is knocked prone or pushed 15 feet away from you.

Grand Finale

At 17th level, you know that the final act must leave the audience awestruck and at a loss for words.

Your Elegant Combination special attack now always scores a critical hit on a successful hit.

Way of the Open Hand

The way of the open hand is a viable subclass choice for monks that appear in the player's handbook and can be easily translated to work with brawler. It is a fitting choice for classically trained monks and ascetics who focus on martial arts and inner harmony to best their enemies, with abilities like the following:

  • An mastery of the basic techniques, allowing them to use Flurry of Blows to greater effect.
  • The ability to harness their inner willpower to heal faster than the average man, gaining a burst of vitality to carry them through a fight.
  • Your peaceful aura makes enemies less likely to target you with attacks, as long as you refrain from violence yourself.
  • Ultimately, you learn how create vibrating energy within a creature's body that can end its life instantly at the snap of a finger.

Way of the Drunken Master

The way of the drunken master is a viable subclass choice for monks that appear in Xanathar's guide to everything and can be easily translated to work with brawler. It is a fitting choice for drunkards who hide power behind a veneer of harmlessness, with abilities like the following:

  • An aggravating fighting style that makes them increasingly frustrating to fight for enemies.
  • The agility to leap from their back onto their feet with ease, run circles around their foes, and turn any bad situation into an advantageous one with nothing but sheer, dumb luck.
  • The ability to fly through a group of enemies in a flurry of disorienting blows, without a single scratch on the brawler themselves.

Way of Mercy

The way of mercy is a viable subclass choice for monks that appear in Tasha's cauldron to everything and can be easily translated to work with brawler. It is a fitting choice for brawlers who are also masterful healers and doctors, able to use traditional medicine or pressure point striking to bring both healing and harm, with abilities like the following:

  • The ability to use their spirit points to heal the wounded, either flavored as traditional medicine, acupuncture or similar practices.
  • The ability to rend enemies from the inside out by striking pressure points.
  • As you grow stronger, their medicine can even be used to expel poisons, or inflict it on enemies they strike.
  • Ultimately, they learn a secret technique capable of bringing even the dead back to life.

At 1st Level, you know three tricks of your choice from the gadgeteer creations list. You learn additional gadgeteer tricks of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Tricks Known column of the Gadgeteer table.

At 1st Level, you have a notebook containing six 1st-level gadgeteer creations of your choice. Your notebook⁠ is the repository of the gadgeteer creations⁠ you know, except your tricks, which are fixed in your mind.

Preparing and Using Creations (Preparing and Casting Spells)

The Gadgeteer table shows how many creation slots you have to use your gadgeteer creations of 1st Level and higher. To use one of these creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of gadgeteer creations that are available for you to cast. To do so, choose a number of gadgeteer creations⁠ from your notebook equal to your Intelligence modifier + your gadgeteer level (minimum of one creation). The creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

With an Intelligence of 16, your list of prepared creations can include six creations⁠ of 1st or 2nd Level, in any combination, chosen from your notebook. If you prepare the 1st-level creation burning hands, you can use it using a 1st-level or a 2nd-level slot. Using the creation doesn’t remove it from your list of prepared creations⁠.

You can change your list of prepared creations when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of gadgeteer creations⁠ requires time spent studying your notebook and recalibrating the gadgets and gizmos you need to use the creation: at least 1 minute per creation level for each creation on your list.

Creative Ability (Spellcasting Ability)

Intelligence is your creative ability for your gadgeteer creations, as you learn through careful study and observation, trial and error. You use your Intelligence whenever a creation refers to your creative⁠ ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting⁠ the saving throw DC for a gadgeteer creations you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Creation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Routine Usage (Ritual Casting)

You can use a gadgeteer creation as a routine if that creation has the routine tag and you have the creation in your notebook. You don’t need to have the creation prepared.

Apparatus (Focus)

You can use any apparatus or tinker's tools as an apparatus for your gadgeteer creations.

Learning Gadgets of 1st Level and Higher (Learning Spells)

Each time you gain a gadgeteer level, you can add two gadgeteer creations of your choice to your notebook for free. Each of these creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots, as shown on the gadgeteer table. On your adventures, you might find other creations that you can add to your notebook (see the “Your notebook”).

Gadget Recharge

Also at 1st level, you have learned to recharge some of your creations by tinkering with them. Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended creation slots to recover. The creation slots can have a combined level that is equal to or less than half your gadgeteer level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.

For example, if you’re a 4th-level gadgeteer, you can recover up to two levels worth of creation slots. You can recover either a 2nd-level creation slot or two 1st-level creation slots.

Your Notebook⁠ (Spellbook)

The creations that you add to your notebook as you gain levels reflect the research you conduct on your own, as well as intellectual breakthroughs you have had in the fields of engineering. You might find other creations⁠ during your adventures. You could discover a creation recorded on a blueprint in a shipwright's desk, for example, or written in poneglyphs in an ancient library⁠.

Copying a Creation into the Book⁠. When you find a gadgeteer creation of 1st Level or higher, you can add it to your notebook if it is of a creation level you can prepare and if you can spare the time to decipher and copy it.

Copying that creation into your notebook involves reproducing the basic form of the creation, then deciphering the unique system of notation used by the gadgeteer who wrote it. You must create prototypes of the creation until you understand what makes it tick, then transcribe it into your notebook⁠ using your own notation.

For each level of the creation, the process takes 2 hours and costs 500 000 beri. The cost represents material components you expend as you craft prototypes, as well as the fine inks you need to record it. Once you have spent this time and money, you can prepare the creation just like your other creations.

Replacing the Book⁠. You can copy a creation from your own notebook into another book—for example, if you want to make a backup copy of your notebook⁠. This is just like copying a new creation into your notebook⁠, but faster and easier, since you understand your own notation and already know how to craft the creation. You need spend only 1 hour and 100 000 beri for each level of the copied creation.

If you lose your notebook, you can use the same procedure to transcribe the creations that you have prepared into a new notebook⁠. Filling out the remainder of your notebook requires you to find new spells⁠ to do so, as normal. For this reason, many gadgeteers keep backup notebooks in a safe place.

The Book’s Appearance. Your notebook is a unique compilation of creations and blueprints, with its own standard of measurements and margin notes. It might be a plain, functional leather volume that you received as a gift from your master, meticulously drawn blueprints kept firmly rolled into a scroll case⁠, or even a loose collection of notes that only ever makes sense to you, stashed away equally haphazardly into an old backpack.


Scientific Pursuit

At 2nd level, you choose a specific scientific route that characterizes yourself and determines the functionality of your inventions. Choose between Specialist, Inventor or Scientist, all detailed at the end of the class description.

Your choice grants you features at 2nd Level and again at 6th, 10th, and 14th level.

Ability Score Improvement

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.

Gadget Mastery

At 18th level, you have achieved such mastery over certain creations that you can use them at will. Choose a 1st-level gadgeteer creation and a 2nd-level gadgeteer creation that are in your notebook. You can use those creations⁠ at their lowest level without expending a creation slot when you have them prepared. If you want to use either creation at a higher level, you must expend a creation slot as normal.

By spending 8 hours in study, you can exchange one or both of the creations you chose for different creations⁠ of the same levels.

Signature Creations

When you reach 20th level, you gain mastery over two powerful creations and can use them with little effort. Choose two 3rd-level gadgeteer creations⁠ in your notebook⁠ as your signature creations⁠. You always have these creations⁠ prepared, they don’t count against the number of creations⁠ you have prepared, and you can use each of them once at 3rd level without expending a creation slot. When you do so, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest.

If you want to use either creation at a higher level, you must expend a creation slot as normal.

Scentific Pursuits

Every inventor and gadgeteer around the world has its own unique approach to creations, whether they focus on creating a lot of external inventions and gadgets with a singular purpose each, or rely on a specific, custom-made apparatus that can shape any form of creation they know.

Specialist

Specialists are gadgeteers who stick to what they know, typically relying on a single modified weapon or tool for protection. Their creations and techniques usually center around this special device.

Specialist Weapon

At 2nd level, you create a gadgeteer weapon that acts as a container for your creations.

Over the course of 1 hour, you can use your tinker's tools to modify one simple or martial weapon that lacks the heavy property into a specialist weapon. You are proficient in the use of your gadgeteer weapon, and it gains the following benefits.

  • The specialist weapon counts as an apparatus for your gadgeteer creations.
  • When you attack with your specialist weapon, the damage type is your choice of acid, cold, fire, lightning or poison damage, or the weapon's original damage.
  • If the weapon normally requires ammunition to be used, it now produces its own ammunition.
  • If the weapon has the thrown property, it returns to your hand after being thrown.

You can only have one specialist weapon at any time. If you create a new specialist weapon, the old one immediately ceases to function and becomes a normal weapon again.

Unarmored Defense

Also at 2nd level, your smarts lets you see your enemy's plan of attack before it even strikes. While you aren't wearing armor or wielding a shield, your armor class is calculated as 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Intelligence modifier.

Extra Attack

Starting at 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, when you take the Attack action on your turn. You can use a trick in place of one of these attacks.

Dampening Field

Beginning at 10th level, you can leverage your specialist weapon to protect against elemental attacks.

When you or a creature you can see within 30 feet suffers acid, cold, fire, lightning or poison damage, you can use your reaction to reduce the damage taken by an amount equal to your gadgeteer level + your Intelligence modifier. You can do this a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

While you have no more uses of this feature, you can use it anyways by expending a creation slot of 3rd level or higher.

Intellectual Warrior

Beginning at 14th level, you can add your Intelligence modifier (minimum of one) to the damage of your weapon attacks using your specialist weapon.


Inventor

Inventors aren't particularly concerned with the purpose of their creations as much as they simply love the art of creation. Their creations can at times be unpredictable but once they get an idea in their head, they will see it through until they reach perfection.

Bonus Proficiencies

At 2nd level, you gain proficiency in the Engineering skill if you don't already have it. You also gain proficiency with two sets of artisan's tools of your choice.

Failsafe

At 2nd level, you can sculpt your creations to make sure they don't harm your allies.

When you use a creation that deals damage and affects other creatures that you can see, you can choose a number of them equal to 1 + the spell's level. The chosen creatures automatically succeed on their saving throws against the creation, and they take no damage if they would normally take half damage on a successful save.

Power Charge

At 6th level, you've rigged your creations with enough explosive hardware that they're certain to always go out with a bang, and never a disappointing fizzle.

When you roll damage for a creation, you can reroll any 1s you roll and must use the new rolls. You can do this a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and regain all uses when you finish a long rest. You also regain one use of this feature when you use Gadget Recharge.

Up to Eleven

Beginning at 10th level, you can add your Intelligence modifier to one damage roll of any gadgeteer creation you use.

Overcharge

At 14th level, you've come to the genius conclusion that safety switches are completely optional for your creations.

When you use a gadgeteer creation of 5th level or lower that deals damage, you can deal maximum damage with the creation instead of rolling.

The first time you do so, you suffer no adverse effects. If you use this feature again before you finish a long rest, you take 2d12 necrotic damage for each level of the creation, immediately after you use it. Each time you use this feature again before finishing a long rest, the necrotic damage per creation level increases by 1d12. This damage ignores resistance and immunity.

Scientist

Scientists take a very academical and analytical approach to their inventions. To them, theory and results are more important than the actual act of creation itself. Efficient and by the book, their creations can be counted on to be reliable, if not necessarily very flashy. The hallmark of their creations is the existence of their mechanical assistant, which is never found far from its master and carries out their ever command.

Keen Wit

Also at 2nd level, you gain proficiency in two of the following skills of your choice: Engineering, History, Nature or Investigation. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make with either of the two skills.

Mechanical Assistant

Also at 2nd level, you've constructed a small, mechanical assistant to aid you in your research. See the Mechanical Assistant stat block at the end of the class description for the creature's statistics. You determine the assistant's appearence. Some scientists prefer a mechanical animal, while others may prefer a toy-like design.

In combat, the assistant acts during your turn. It can move and use its reaction on its own, but the only action it takes is the Dodge action, unless you take a bonus action on your turn to command it to take another action. That action can be one in its stat block or some other action. If you are incapacitated, the assistant can take any action of its choice, not just Dodge.

If the assistant is reduced to 0 hit points, it is rendered unusable until you spend 1 hour working on it with your tinker's tools, after which it returns to life with all its hit points restored. If mending is cast on the assistant, it immediately regains 2d6 hit points.

When you use a creation with a range other than self, you can use it as if you were occupying your assistant's space.

Reserve Power

At 6th level, you never exhaust a gadget if you don't think it'll work. When a creature successfully saves against a creation you use, you can choose to regain the creation slot with which you used the creation. If the creation slot was 6th level or higher, the new creation slot is 5th level instead.

Once you use this feature, you cannot do so again until you finish a long rest.

Analyze

At 10th level, your assistant can analyze your enemies and their weaknesses to give you an upper hand.

When you command the assistant to take its Search action, you can additionally expend a creation slot of any level to learn one of the following facts about one creature the assistant can see within 60 feet of it.

  • The creature's type.
  • The creature's armor class.
  • One of the creature's ability scores of your choice.
  • What damage resistances, immunities and vulnerabilities, if any, the creature has.
  • What condition immunities, if any, the creature has.

Stored Creation

Beginning at 14th level, you can store a creation within your mechanical assistant.

When you finish a long rest, you can store a creation of 1st or 2nd level in your mechanical assistant. The creation must exist in your notebook, but you don't need to have it prepared to store it, and it must have a normal usage time of 1 action. You can only have one creation stored in the assistant at one time, and if you store another creation within it, the first creation is removed from the assistant.

Once a creation has been stored in the assistant, it can then use an action on its turn to use the creation, using your creation attack modifier and creation save DC. The assistant can take this action a number of times equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of once) and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Beginning at 14th level, you can target three different creatures with it instead of one. When you use a bonus action to move your hunter's mark to another creature, you can move any number of marks with the same bonus action.

Creativity

At 2nd level, experimentation and application of natural resources have taught you how to create special ammunition and gadgets to aid your marksmanship. See the marksman creation list under "Marksman Creations by Level". (Creativity is synonymous with 5th edition Spellcasting. See "Casting a Spell" in the Player's Handbook for the general rules of Spellcasting in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition).

Creation Slots (Spell Slots)

The Marksman table shows how many creation slots you have to play your marksman creations of 1st Level and higher. To play one of these creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

For example, if you know the 1st-level creation entangle and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level creation slot available, you can cast entangle using either slot.

Creations Known of 1st Level and Higher (Spells)

You know four 1st-level creations of your choice from the marksman creation list.

The Creations Known column of the Marksman Table shows when you learn more marksman creations⁠ of your choice. Each of these creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots, as shown on the table. For instance, when you reach 3rd Level in this class, you can learn one new creation of 1st or 2nd Level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the marksman creations you know and replace it with another creation from the marksman creation list, which also must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Marksmen are all defined by their improbable aim and massive resourcefulness that sets them apart from common gunmen. However, marksmen differ greatly between eachother, some being patient snipers that take down enemies from afar, while others tame beasts that aid them in taking out enemies, and others still learn how to wield melee weapons as skillfully as they wield their guns and bows.

Sniper

The quintessential marksman is the sniper, a skilled fighter that excells at fighting at long ranges utilizing the massive reach of their weapons. A sniper is remarkable for their skill more so than their weapon of choice, as even a humble slingshot can be deadly in the hands of a skilled sniper.

Careful Aim

Starting at 3rd level, you can use a bonus action to take careful aim.

If you do so, the normal and maximum range of any ranged weapon you're wielding becomes 100 and 400 feet unless it's already more than that. Additionally, you ignore any disadvantage on ranged attacks imposed by weather-related effects, such as fog or strong winds.

Explosive Shot

Also at 3rd level, you can fire off special ammunition shots with great lethality.

When you hit with a ranged weapon attack, you can expend a marksman creation slot to deal additional fire damage to a creature with an explosive bullet. The extra damage is 1d6 for a 1st-level creation slot, plus 1d6 for each creation level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 5d6.

Remarkable Fortitude

When you are reduced to 0 hit points, you can instantly use your reaction to delay falling unconscious or dying and make a single ranged weapon attack with advantage against a creature within range. On hit, you deal additional damage equal to your marksman level. Immediately after making this attack, you fall unconscious or die as you normally would.

Bounty Hunter

Bounty hunters are marksmen who thrive in the thick of the fight rather than in the backlines. Equally skilled with ranged and melee weapons, they weave seamlessly between them in a neverending dance of steel and bullets.

Additional Fighting Style

At 3rd level, you choose an additional fighting style from the options below. At 7th level, you gain the other fighting style you didn't choose at 3rd level.

Dueling

When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

Two-weapon Fighting

13th staggering smite
17th steel wind strike^

At 7th level, when a creature hits you with an attack, you gain a bonus to your AC equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of 1) against all subsequent attacks made by that creature for the rest of the turn.

Master-at-arms

At 11th level, you become a master at fighting with weapons.

You can draw or stow a weapon as part of making an attack with it. When you take the attack action on your turn and make an attack with at least two different weapons, you can make one additional weapon attack.

Evasion

At 15th level, when you are subjected to an effect, such as a lightning bolt creation, 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 only half damage if you fail.

Beastmaster

Beastmasters are wardens of nature and skilled survivalists. They have an innate ability to communicate with animals and are always accompanied by a bestial companion that fights alongside them as an extension of the beastmaster's own body.

Bestial Companion

When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you get access to an animal companion that will follow you on your adventures.

Choose either the Beast of the Air, Beast of the Earth or Beast of the Sea to be your companion, all listed at the end of the subclass description. Your bestial companion takes a form appropriate to its type, for instance a Beast of the Air might be a hawk or a seagull, while a Beast of the Land could be a wolf or a bear.

In combat, the beast acts during your turn. It can move and use its reaction on its own, but the only action it takes is the Dodge action, unless you take a bonus action on your turn to command it to take another action. That action can be one in its stat block or some other action. You can also sacrifice one of your attacks when you take the Attack action to command the beast to take the Attack action. If you are incapacitated, the beast can take any action of its choice, not just Dodge.

If your bestial companion is reduced to 0 hit points, it falls unconscious and makes death saving throws as normal instead of dying outright. As an action, you can touch an unconscious or dead bestial companion and expend one creation slot of 1st level or higher. If your bestial companion was unconscious, it regains 1d8 hit points per creation slot level instantly. If your bestial companion was dead, it regains consciousness after 1 minute with all its maximum hit points restored.

While traveling alone with your bestial companion, you can move stealthily at a normal pace. Your bestial companion always knows the general direction of your position and will immediately seek you out to the best of its ability if the two of you are separated.

Natural Attunement

Also at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in the Animal Handling skill if you don't already have it and may double your proficiency bonus for any ability check made with the skill.

Additionally, you can speak and communicate with beasts and understand anything they are saying. This doesn't make them any friendlier towards you than normal, however you can combine this ability with food to curry favor with animals.

Exceptional Training

Beginning at 7th level, you've trained your companion well.

Your bestial companion can take the Dash, Disengage or Hide action as a bonus action on its turn. In addition, if you know any Haki feats, your bestial companion gains those feats as well.

Bestial Fury

At 11th level, your bestial companion grows more adept at combat. Your bestial companion can now make two attacks, instead of one, when you command it to take the Attack action.

Enrage

At 15th level, you and your bestial companion become enraged with primal fury at the sight of injury to eachother.

When your bestial companion is reduced to 0 hit points, you gain the following benefits for 1 minute. If you are reduced to 0 hit points, your bestial companion gains these benefits instead.

  • You gain resistance to bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage.

As a medic, you gain the following class features

Hit Points


  • Hit Dice: 1d8 per medic level
  • Hit Points at 1st Level: 8 + your Constitution modifier
  • Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per medic level after 1st

Proficiencies

  • Tools: Alchemist's supplies, herbalism kit

  • Saving Throws: Intelligence, Wisdom
  • Skills: Choose two from Insight, Investigation, Medicine, Nature, Perception, Persuasion, Religion and Survival

Equipment

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your role:

  • (a) a sickle or (b) a dagger
  • (a) alchemist's supplies or (b) a herbalism kit
  • (a) a scholar's pack or (b) an explorer's pack
  • a flintlock and 20 bullets, and a suit of leather armor

Creativity (Spellcasting)

You have learned to create medicines and poisons potent enough to pass for magic among common folk. See the medic creation list under "Medic Creations by Level". (Creativity is synonymous with 5th edition Spellcasting. See "Casting a Spell" in the Player's Handbook for the general rules of Spellcasting in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition).

Tricks (Cantrips)

At 1st level, you know three tricks of your choice from the medic creations list. You learn additional medic tricks of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Tricks Known column of the Medic table.

Preparing and Using Creations (Preparing and Casting Spells)

The Medic table shows how many creation slots you have to use your medic creations of 1st level and higher. To use one of these medic creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of medic creations that are available for you to cast, choosing from the medic creation list. When you do so, choose a number of medic creations equal to your Wisdom modifier + your medic level (minimum of one creation). The creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

For example, if you are a 3rd-level medic, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level creation slots. With a Wisdom of 16, your list of prepared creations can include six creations⁠ of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level creation cure wounds, you can use it using a 1st-level or 2nd-level slot. Using the creation doesn’t remove it from your list of prepared creations⁠.

You can also change your list of prepared creations when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of medic creations⁠ requires time spent working with your medicinal components: at least 1 minute per creation level for each creation on your list.

Creative⁠ Ability (Spellcasting Ability)

Wisdom is your creative ability for your medic creations. Your creations are medicinal restoratives and potent poisons that require a perceptive eye and hand to mix properly. You use your Wisdom whenever a creation refers to your creative⁠ ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting⁠ the saving throw DC for a medic creation you use and when making an attack roll with one.

Creation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Routine Usage (Ritual Casting)

You can use any medic creation you know as a routine if that creation has the routine tag.

Apparatus (Spellcasting Focus)

You can use alchemist's supplies or a herbalism kit as an apparatus for your medic creations.

Medical Expertise

You are particularly adept at healing the wounded. You have advantage on all Wisdom (Medicine) checks made to stabilize dying creatures, and if you roll a 20 on the d20, the creature regains consciousness with 1 hit point. A creature can only benefit from this effect once, and must finish a long rest before it can do so again.

Additionally, when you stabilize a creature, you can remove one poison or disease from it.

Experimental Medicine

Starting at 2nd level, you've developed a type of medicine that massively boosts your physical abilities for an extended period of time. The medicine is tailored to your physiology, and only you can benefit from it.

As an action on your turn, you can administer this special medicine to yourself, granting you temporary hit points equal to four times your level in this class. When you administer this medicine, additionally choose one of the following enhancements to gain:

  • Hulking Strength. You gain an immense surge in Strength for the duration, causing your Strength score to be set to a number equal to your Wisdom score, unless it's already higher. Additionally, your unarmed strikes in this form deal 1d8 bludgeoning damage instead of the normal damage.
  • Nimble Dexterity. You gain a sudden burst of agility and speed, causing your Dexterity score to be set to a number equal to your Wisdom score, unless it's already higher, and increasing your speed by 10 feet.
  • Resilient Constitution. You're imbued with a strong and hearty vigor, causing your Constitution score to be set to a number equal to your Wisdom score, unless it's already higher, and granting advantage on Constitution saving throws.

The medicine's effects last for a number of hours equal to half your healer level (rounded down), but ends early if you lose all temporary hit points gained by this effect or if you willingly end it as a bonus action. While the medicine is active, you can change the enhancement you gained as an action on your turn, for instance changing from Hulking Strength to Nimble Dexterity or back. You lose the effects of the previous enhancement and replace them with the new one when you do this.

You can use this feature twice, and regain all uses when you finish a short or long rest.

Medical Specialization

At 2nd level, you choose a medical specialization for your focused studies. Choose between the field surgeon, physician, chemist or sawbones, all detailed at the end of the class description.

You choice grants you features at 2nd level, and again at 6th, 10th and 14th level.


Overheal

At 18th level, your healing becomes unparallelled. When you restore hit points to a creature with a creation of 1st level or higher, you restore the maximum amount of hit points possible instead of rolling.

Secrets of Medicine

Beginning at 18th level, you've unraveled the secrets of longevity with your medical expertise. For every 10 years that pass, you age only 1 year.

Miracle Worker

At 20th level, you've completely stabilized the formula for your Experimental Medicine, allowing you to use it an unlimited amount of times between rests.

Additionally, you no longer require verbal or somatic components for any medic creations you use, and only require material components if they have a listed cost or are consumed upon use.

Medical Specialization

Medics come from all walks of life, whether they are kindly village herbalists who forage for medicine in the nearby woods or well-renowned scientists working for the world government in pursuit of breakthroughs in medical science. Whether motivated by their morals or monetary flow, all medics know that their role is a vital one in any crew.

Field Surgeon

Field surgeons are the archetypical pirate crew doctors, who wade into the fray with their allies without fear. To this end, they're the most adept at using experimental medicine in combat, and have found ways to improve its potency manifold. However, this power comes at a cost of their humanity if they go too far with it, and most field surgeons hesitate to indulge in their most powerful medicine too often for this reason.

Combat Medicine

Beginning at 2nd level, you can now use Experimental Medicine as a bonus action rather than an action, and can swap between enhancements as a bonus action as well.

Additionally, the temporary hit points you gain from Experimental Medicine now includes your Wisdom modifier.

Enhanced Forms

Also at 2nd level, the enhancements provided by Experimental Medicine become stronger for you.

  • Hulking Strength. The damage die of your unarmed strikes increases to a d10.
  • Nimble Dexterity. Opportunity attacks against you now has disadvantage.
  • Resilient Constitution. You gain resistance to non-imbued bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage.

Extra Attack

Beginning at 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, when you take the Attack action on your turn.

Monstrous Transformation

Also at 6th level, you can cast aside common sense and use the full strength of your medicine to transform into a monster. As a bonus action on your turn, you can expend both uses of Experimental Medicine to transform into a monstrous form of yourself for 1 hour or until you lose all temporary hit points gained by the transformation. During this transformation, you gain the following benefits:

  • Your size becomes large, and your creature type becomes monstrosity.
  • The temporary hit points you gain are doubled.
  • You gain the benefits of all three enhancements available to Experimental Medicine simultaneously.

During this transformation, you cannot use creations. On your turn, you must move towards the closest creature within range and take the Attack action against it. If no creature is within range, you can take the Dash action to move towards the nearest creature. If you are unable to move or take actions and this is caused by an effect that can be ended with an action, you can then take an action to attempt to end the effect on yourself.

Once this transformation ends, you gain one level of exhaustion and cannot transform like this again until you finish a long rest.

Contained Rampage

Beginning at 10th level, you no longer lose control during Monstrous Transformation and can move and act normally, however you still cannot use creations in this state and still suffer a level of exhaustion once it ends.

Greater Enhancements

Starting at 14th level, you've mastered the formula for your Experimental Medicine, enhancing the effects of it even further.

  • Hulking Strength. The damage die of your unarmed strikes increases to a d12, and you now have advantage on all Strength checks and saving throws.
  • Nimble Dexterity. Your speed doubles, and creatures cannot make opportunity attacks against you.
  • Resilient Constitution. You gain immunity to the paralyzed and poisoned conditions, and resistance to poison and necrotic damage.

Physician

Physicians focus primarily on their job as a the ship's doctor, and specialize in using their medicine to aid allies and heal their wounds over fighting on the frontlines themselves.

Healer's Touch

Beginning at 2nd level, you have a number of healing dice equal to your level, which are d6s. As a bonus action on your turn, you can touch a creature within 5 feet of you and spend a number of these healing dice up to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one healer's die). Roll the dice, add them together, and restore hit points to the target equal to the total. You regain all spent healing dice when you finish a long rest.

Alternatively, when you restore hit points to a creature using a medic creation of 1st level or higher, you can expend a number of these healing dice up to the level of the creation and add them to the amount of hit points restored to one creature affected by the creation.

Physician Creations

Being always prepared for the worst, you make certain to always have specific creations ready at hand. At 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th level respectively, you gain access to specific creations, as shown in the Physician Creations table.

You always have these creations prepared, and they don't count towards the number of creations you can prepare. If you gain access to a creation that isn't in the medic spell list, it is nonetheless a medic spell for you.

Physician Creations
Medic Level Creation
2nd bless, cure wounds
3rd enhance ability, lesser restoration
5th aura of vitality, revivify
7th aura of purity, death ward
9th greater restoration, mass cure wounds

Experimental Application

Starting at 6th level, you've learned how to apply your Experimental Medicine as an unstable but highly effective regenerative medicine.

As an action on your turn, you can expend one use of your Experimental Medicine and create a cloud of medical fumes that can restore a number of hit ooints equal to five times your medic level. Choose any creatures within 30 feet of you, and divide those hit points among them. This feature can restore a creature to no more than half of its hit point maximum. You can’t use this feature on an Undead or a Construct.

Developed Immunity

Beginning at 10th level, you become immune to all poisons and diseases. Additionally, your hit point maximum can no longer be reduced.

Master Practitioner

Beginning at 14th level, you can use lesser restoration at will, and no longer require material components to use greater restoration.

Chemist

Chemists take the practice of medicine to its logical extremes, and often beyond that. They are boundless visionaries who push their craft to the breaking point, finding ways to cause harm with an art oftentimes meant to save lives, whether deliberately so or not.

Chemist Creations

Your constant experimentation has yielded some strange results. At 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th level respectively, you gain access to specific creations, as shown in the Chemist Creations table.

You always have these creations prepared, and they don't count towards the number of creations you can prepare. If you gain access to a creation that isn't in the medic spell list, it is nonetheless a medic spell for you.

Chemist Creations
Medic Level Creation
2nd ray of sickness, tasha's caustic brew^
3rd alter self, melf's acid arrow
5th fireball, stinking cloud
7th vitriolic sphere^, wall of fire
9th cloudkill, reincarnate (always creates augmented race)

Experimental Ooze

At 2nd level, you've redesigned the formula for your Experimental Medicine, allowing you to create a form of life from it instead of empowering yourself.

As an action, you expend one use of Experimental Medicine to summon an Experimental Ooze instead of gaining any enhancements. The ooze appears in an unoccupied space of your choice that you can see within 30 feet of you. Each creature within 10 feet of the ooze (other than you) when it appears must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw against your creation save DC or take 2d6 acid damage.

The ooze is friendly to you and your companions and obeys your commands. See this creature's game statistics in the Experimental Ooze stat block at the end of the class description, which uses your proficiency bonus (PB) in several places. You determine the ooze's appearance. Some oozes look just like a featureless blob of colorful, viscous liquid, while others take on vaguely humanoid shapes.

In combat, the ooze shares your initiative count, but it takes its turn immediately after yours. The only action it takes on its turn is the Dodge action, unless you take a bonus action on your turn to command it to take another action. That action can be one in its stat block or some other action. If you are incapacitated, the ooze can take any action of its choice, not just Dodge.

The ooze manifests for 1 hour, until it is reduced to 0 hit points, until you use this feature to summon the ooze again, or until you die.


Chemical Reactions

Beginning at 6th level, when you use a creation that deals either acid, fire, necrotic or poison damage while your experimental ooze is summoned, you can roll a d8 and add it to one damage roll of the creation.

Additionally, when you use a creation with a range other than self, you can cause the creation to originate from you or your experimental ooze.

Chemical Detonation

Beginning at 10th level, you've rigged the chemical components of your experimental ooze to detonate violently when it perishes.

When your experimental ooze takes damage, it can use its reaction to instantly reduce its hit points to 0 and detonate in a blast of caustic sludge. Each creature within 10 feet of the ooze must make a Dexterity saving throw against your creation save DC, taking 2d10 + your Wisdom modifier acid damage on a failed save, and half as much on a success.

You can detonate an experimental ooze like this a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Regenerating Ooze

Beginning at 14th level, your ooze instantly reforms after using Chemical Detonation, returning to life with a number of hit points equal to your medic level + your Wisdom modifier. After your ooze reforms itself, you must then summon a new ooze in order to use this feature again.


Experimental Ooze

Small ooze, unaligned


  • Armor Class 13
  • Hit Points 5 + five times your medic level
  • Speed 20ft., climb 20 ft.

Amorphous. The ooze can move through a space as small as 1 inch in diameter without squeezing.

Actions

Psuedopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +your creation attack modifier to hit, reach 5ft., one target. Hit: 2d4 acid damage + PB

Acid Glob. Ranged Weapon Attack: +your creation attack modifier to hit, range 30ft., one target. Hit: 1d6 acid damage + PB

Sawbones

Good doctors are hard to come by. When you're a pirate, virtuous ones even more so. In academical circles, being labeled "sawbones" is definitely a mark of shame, however among pirates and marines it's a title that oftentimes carry some modicum of respect, and no small amount of fear.

Compared to other medics, sawbones are decidedly more capable and willing of holding their own in a fight, using their intricate knowledge of anatomy and surgical precision to cut their foes to ribbons.

Bonus Proficiencies

Beginning at 2nd level, you gain proficiency with cutlasses, katanas, longswords, shortswords, scimitars and rapiers. You can use any weapon you are proficient with as an apparatus for your medic creations.

Surgical Precision

Also at 2nd level, you can leverage your medical expertise to unveil a creature's weak spot to you and your allies. As an action on your turn, you can expend both uses of Experimental Medicine to target one creature you can see within 30 feet and expose it until the end of your next turn. The next time you or an ally of yours hits the exposed creature with an attack, the creature has vulnerability to all of that attack’s damage, and is then no longer exposed.

Beginning at 6th level, you can use this feature by expending only one use of Experimental Medicine, instead of both.


Extra Attack

Beginning at 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, when you take the Attack action on your turn.

Anatomical Study

Beginning at 10th level, you can study a creature's anatomy from afar in order to determine how to best heal or harm it.

As a bonus action on your turn, you can target one creature you can see within 60 feet and study it briefly, gaining one of the following bonuses until the start of your next turn:

  • The next time you deal damage to the creature, you deal additional damage to it equal to your medic level.
  • The next time you restore hit points to the creature with a creation of 1st level or higher, it regains an additional amount of hit points equal to your medic level.
  • The next time the creature hits you with an attack, you can reduce the damage taken by an amount equal to your your medic level.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Doctor Death

Beginning at 14th level, constant interaction with the dying has given you a strangely intimate relationship with death. You gain immunity to the frightened condition, and can leverage your morbid connection to unnerve other creatures.

Once per turn when you target a creature with Surgical Precision or Anatomical Study, you can force it to make a Wisdom saving throw against your creation save DC. On a failed save, the creature becomes frightened of you until the end of your next turn.

Class Features

As a paragon, you gain the following class features

Hit Points


  • Hit Dice: 1d10 per paragon level
  • Hit Points at 1st Level: 10 + your Constitution modifier
  • Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d10 (or 6) + your Constitution modifier per paragon level after 1st

Proficiencies


  • Armor: All armor, shields
  • Weapons: Simple weapons, martial weapons
  • Tools: None

  • Saving Throws: Wisdom, Charisma
  • Skills: Choose two from Athletics, Acrobatics, Insight, Intimidation, Persuasion and Performance

Equipment

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your role:

  • (a) a martial weapon and a shield or (b) two martial weapons
  • (a) chainmail or (b) a heavy longcoat
  • (a) a dungeoneer's pack or (b) an explorer's pack
  • five javelins, a dagger and a memento

Ardent Soul

Your soul flares with a passion unlike the common man, which manifests occasionally as a disposition towards elemental forces: Burning Passion, Caustic Spite, Cold Indifference, Fulminating Glee, Mindful Insight, Necrotic Mania, Radiant Superiority, Thundering Resolve or Venomous Duality, all detailed at the end of the class description.

Your choice grants you features at 1st level, and then again at 3rd, 7th, 15th and 20th level.

Rallying Presence

At 1st level, your strong personality inspires allies on the battlefield, allowing them to catch their breath and have a second wind.

You have a pool of inspiring energy equal to five times your paragon level. As an action, you can touch a willing creature and draw power from the pool to restore a number of hit points to that creature, up to the maximum amount remaining in that pool.

Alternatively, you can expend 5 of these hit points to help the ally snap out of a stupor. The ally can immediately make a saving throw to remove one effect that has it charmed or frightened. You can aid it in removing several of these effects at once, expending hit points for each effect.

Creativity

At 2nd level, your passionate soul finally stirs enough to awaken the power slumbering within. (Creativity is synonymous with 5th edition Spellcasting. See "Casting a Spell" in the Player's Handbook for the general rules of Spellcasting in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition).


Preparing and Using Creations (Spell Slots)

The Paragon table shows how many creation slots you have to play your paragon creations of 1st Level and higher. To play one of these creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of paragon creations that are available for you to use, choosing from the paragon creation list. When you do so, choose a number of paragon creations equal to your Charisma modifier + half your paragon level, rounded down (minimum of one spell). The creations must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

For example, if you are a 5th-level paragon, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level creation slots. With a Charisma of 14, your list of prepared creations can include four creations of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. For example, if you prepare the 1st-level creation longstrider and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level creation slot available, you can use longstrider with either slot.

You can change your list of prepared creations when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of paragon creations requires time spent in focus and creative pursuit: at least 1 minute per creation level for each creation on your list.

Creative⁠ Ability (Spellcasting Ability)

Charisma is your creative ability for your paragon creations. Your creations are not physical items, but rather manifestations of your own burning passion and innate talent. You use your Charisma whenever a creation refers to your creative⁠ ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting⁠ the saving throw DC for a paragon creation you play and when making an attack roll with one.

Creation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Apparatus (Spellcasting Focus)

You can use a memento as an apparatus for your paragon creations.

Fighting Style

At 2nd Level, you adopt a particular style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options.

Defense

While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.

Dueling

When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

Great Weapons Fighting

When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

Protection

When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.

Unarmed Fighting

Your unarmed strikes can deal bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier on a hit. If you aren't wielding any weapons or a shield when you make the attack roll, the d6 becomes a d8.

At the start of each of your turns, you can deal 1d4 bludgeoning damage to one creature grappled by you.

Ardent Smite

Starting at 2nd level, when you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack, you can expend one creation slot to deal damage to the target, in addition to the weapon’s damage. The extra damage is 2d8 for a 1st-level creation slot, plus 1d8 for each creation level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 5d8.

The damage type of this extra damage depends on your choice of Ardent Soul, as described in the Ardent Soul Element table below.

Ardent Soul Element
Ardent Soul Damage Type
Burning Passion Fire
Caustic Spite Acid
Cold Indifference Cold
Fulminating Glee Lightning
Mindful Insight Psychic
Necrotic Mania Necrotic
Radiant Superiority Radiant
Thundering Resolve Thunder
Venomous Duality Poison

Channel Conviction

Ardent Soul

A paragon is defined by their innate ability to draw upon a fantastical elemental force. Sometimes, it is a gift that they are born with, such as oracles that can scry the future. Other times, it is as a result of genetical tampering in an attempt to creature super soldiers. More rarely is it that a paragon awakens their ability on the seas, as a result of a strong conviction.

Paragons are typically colored by the type of gift that they've been granted, though this isn't necessarily good or bad. Fire and heat, for instance, tend to represent passion, so a valiant protector of the weak and an ambitious, ruthless conqueror could both end up drawing on this power.

Burning Passion

Paragons who hold a burning passion, love or ambition within their soul can manifest it as a blazing heat, scorching their enemies when they strike them. Typically, these paragons are born defenders who will protect their crews and ideals with their lives, fearless in their fight against those who would seek to harm their friends.

If this movement brings you within 5 feet of the ally, you can touch the ally and teleport it a number of feet equal to your speed. The ally automatically succeeds on its saving throw and if it would normally take half damage on a successful save, it instead takes no damage. You must then make the saving throw against the effect as normal.

Fulminating Glee

  • Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per rogue level after 1st

Proficiencies


  • Armor: Light armor
  • Weapons: Simple weapons, hand crossbows, pistols, revolvers, cutlass, katana, longswords, rapiers, shortswords
  • Tools: Thieves' tools

  • Saving Throws: Dexterity, Intelligence
  • Skills: Choose four from Acrobatics, Athletics, Deception, Insight, Intimidation, Investigation, Perception, Performance, Persuasion, Sleight of Hand, and Stealth⁠

Equipment

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your role:

  • (a) a rapier or (b) a shortsword
  • (a) a shortbow and quiver of 20 arrows or (b) a shortsword
  • (a) a burglar's pack, (b) a dungeoneer's pack, or (c) an explorer's pack
  • Leather armor, two daggers and thieves' tools

Expertise

At 1st Level, choose two of your skill proficiencies, or one of your skill proficiencies and your proficiency with thieves’ tools. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses either of the chosen proficiencies.

At 6th level, you can choose two more of your proficiencies (in skills or with thieves’ tools) to gain this benefit.

Sneak Attack

Beginning at 1st Level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe’s distraction. Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the atta⁠ck roll. The atta⁠ck must use a finesse or a ranged weapon.

You don’t need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn’t incapacitated, and you don’t have disadvantage on the attac⁠k roll.

The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Sneak Attack column of the Rogue table.

Thieves' Cant

During your rogue training you learned thieves’ cant, a Secret mix of dialect, jargon, and code that allows you to hide messages in seemingly normal conversation. Only another creature that knows thieves’ cant understands such messages. It takes four times longer to convey such a message⁠ than it does to speak the same idea plainly.

In addition, you understand a set of secret signs and symbols used to convey short, simple messages, such as whether an area is dangerous or the territory of a thieves’ guild, whether loot is nearby, or whether the people in an area are easy marks or will provide a safe house for thieves on the run.

Cunning Action

Starting at 2nd 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.

Roguish Archetype

At 3rd Level, you choose an archetype that you emulate in the exercise of your rogue abilities: Seeker, Sawbones and Thief are detailed at the end of the class description. Assassin can be found in chapter 3 of the player's handbook, while Inquisitive, Mastermind, Scout and Swashbuckler can be found in chapter 1 of Xanathar's Guide to Everything.


Ability Score Improvement

When you reach 4th Level, and again at 8th, 10th, 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.

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.

Evasion

Beginning at 7th level, your instinctive agility lets you dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a fireball creation. 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 only half damage if you fail.

Reliable Talent

By 11th 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.

Blindsense

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.

Slippery Mind

By 15th level, you have acquired greater mental strength. You gain proficiency in Wisdom saving throws.

Elusive

Beginning at 18th level, you are so evasive that attackers rarely gain the upper hand against you. No attack roll has advantage against you while you aren’t incapacitated.

Stroke of Luck

At 20th level, you have an uncanny knack for succeeding when you need to. If your attack misses a target within range, you can turn the miss into a hit. Alternatively, if you fail an ability check, you can treat The D20 roll as a 20.

Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Roguish Archetypes

Rogues have many features in com⁠mon, including their emphasis on perfecting their skills, their precise and deadly approach to combat, and their increasingly quick reflexes. But different rogues steer those talents in varying directions, embodied by the rogue archetypes. Your choice of archetype is a reflection of your focus - not necessarily an indication of your chosen profession, but a description of your preferred techniques.

Seeker

Seekers are rogues who see little value in gold or power. Their treasure is that of knowledge, being pursuers of ancient secrets and knowledge hidden away in forgotten corners of the world, sometimes for centuries.

Daring adventurers, seekers brave the dangers of the world, not only from the ancient temples they explore but also from those who wish to keep the secrets of the past hidden. They excel at gathering information and have a vast array of knowledge at their disposal.

Well Read

When you choose this subclass at 3rd level, you become proficient in the History and Investigation skills if you aren't already, and can double you proficiency bonus for any ability check made with either of these skills.

Keen Strikes

Beginning at 3rd level, you can make calculated strikes with precise weapon, relying on your keen intellect over brute force or manual dexterity. You can use your Intelligence modifier, rather than Dexterity, when attacking with a ranged weapon or a melee weapon that has the finesse property.

Additionally, you can study different types of creatures or scry your memory for any pertinent information over the course of a long rest. At the end of the rest, choose a number of creature types equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of one). You do not require advantage on the attack roll to gain your sneak attack damage against the chosen creature types. You do not gain this benefit if you have disadvantage on the attack roll.

You can change the chosen creature types whenever you finish a long rest.

Rational Mind

Starting at 9th level, a rational thought process and the ability to keep a cool head grants you advantage on initiative rolls, and on saving throws against being charmed or frightened.

Mindful Evasion

Starting at 13th level, your mental acuity allow you block out harmful effects affecting your mind and body. When you are subjected to an effect that forces you to make an Intelligence or Wisdom saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.


Unmatched Erudition

Beginning at 17th level, your intellect aids you in all endeavors, whether mental or physical. You can add your Intelligence modifier to any ability check or saving throw you make that doesn't already use your Intelligence modifier.

Thief

You hone your skills in the larcenous arts. Burglars, bandits, cutpurses, and other criminals typically follow this archetype, but so do rogues who prefer to think of themselves as professional treasure seekers, explorers, delvers, and investigators. In addition to improving your agility and stealth⁠, you learn skills useful for delving into ancient ruins, evaluating rare treasure, and using gadgets you normally couldn’t employ.

Fast Hands

Starting at 3rd Level, you can use the bonus action granted by your Cunning Action to make a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check, use your thieves’ tools to disarm a trap or open a lock, or take the Use an Object action.

Second-story Work

When you choose this archetype at 3rd Level, you gain the ability to climb faster than normal; climbing no longer costs you extra movement.

In addition, when you make a running jump, the distance you cover increases by a number of feet equal to your Dexterity modifier.

Supreme Sneak

Starting at 9th level, you have advantage on a Dexterity (Stealth) check if you move no more than half your speed on the same turn.

Trapmaster

By 13th level, you become an expert at turning traps against others. You now have advantage on ability checks you make to disarm traps or pick locks.

Additionally, when you successfully disarm a trap, you can choose to rearm it as part of the same actions but with a safe way to pass by it, known only to you and creatures you tell about the passage. Creatures that know about the safe passage can move through the trap at half speed, or touch it, without triggering its effects.

A trap, for the purpose of this feature, includes anything that would inflict a sudden or unexpected effect you consider harmful or undesirable that can be disarmed using thieves' tools, and that wasn't made by a creation. Thus, you can rearm a mechanical pit trap or a pressure plate triggering a gout of flame, but not an alarm creation, a glyph of warding or an unstable ceiling.

Thief's Reflexes

When you reach 17th level, you have become adept at laying ambushes and quickly escaping danger. You can take two turns during the first round of any combat. You take your first turn at your normal initiative and your second turn at your initiative minus 10. You can’t use this feature when you are surprised.

Assassin

The Assassin archetype is a viable choice that appears in the player's handbook. It is a suitable choice for stealthy killers who work from the shadows, pirates that rely on subterfuge. With this subclass, you become a silent killer who can disappear in a crowd and strike down enemies before they even know what hit them, wielding deadly abilities like the following:

  • Additional proficiencies, mastering the use of disguises and poisons.
  • Extremely lethal first strikes against creatures, especially if you get the drop on them.
  • The ability to craft an entire secondary identity to live a double life as someone completely else, even another person that may or may not be alive anymore.

Inquisitive

The Inquisitive archetype is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is a suitable choice for marine investigators or bounty hunters that take a slower and calculated approach to their job. With this subclass, you become an expert at rooting out the truth, whether through careful observation or interaction with other creatures, reading them like open books with abilities like the following:

  • The uncanny ability to see through deception and masquerade, unveiling hidden traps and enemy tricks with ease.
  • An unerring eye that finds weaknesses in the enemy defenses, allowing you to use your sneak attack without the need for allies or advantage.
  • The opportunity to take a slow and steady approach to take in the environment, gaining advantage on spotting traps and secrets.

Mastermind

The Mastermind archetype is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is a suitable choice for spies and plotters, including cunning pirate captains who thrive on guile and scheming. With this subclass, you become a master at manipulating others to your own gain and gathering information on them. Outsmart and outmaneuver your foes with abilities like the following:

  • The ability to aid allies with an extended use of your Cunning Action, granting them advantage instead of yourself.
  • A plethora of versatile proficiencies in everything from disguises to gaming sets and mimicry to truly blend into a crowd.
  • The ability to read a creature's mental aptitude and skillset from nothing but a few minutes of conversation.
  • Complete mastery over lies and trickery, allowing you to turn fumbling foes into their own worst enemy while appearing completely innocent yourself.
    
    

Scout

The Scout archetype is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is a suitable choice for outlanders and lookouts who aid their crew with keen eyes and quick feet. With this subclass, you become a mobile skirmisher that weaves through the battlefield like a greased lightning and cut an opening for the rest of the crew. Overwhelm your enemies and blaze the trail with abilities like the following:

  • Additional expertise in skills meant for exploration and travel
  • Unmatched mobility among all rogues, able to slink away from enemies without them having a sigh at stopping you.
  • A higher chance to act first in combat, and the ability to spot enemies for your crew to focus on.
  • A celerity that lets you sneak in two sneak attacks against two different enemies in the blink of an eye.

Swashbuckler

The Swashbuckler archetype is a viable choice that appears in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It is nothing short of the archetypical pirate, who swings into battle with rakish audacity and no fear. With this subclass, you earn your sea legs properly and become a master at dueling, using fleet footwork and daring speed to dance circles around enemies with abilities like the following:

  • The panache to challenge enemies to one on one duels, where your confidence lets you use your sneak attack without the need for allies or advantage. Eventually, you can throw the gauntlet and make sure your enemy steps up to the challenge properly.
  • Fancy footwork and quick feet let you weave between blades without giving an opportunity to strike you as you single out your dance partner.
  • Using your Cunning Action, you can now grant yourself advantage on any daring stunt you aim to undertake, swinging from the mast to the deck with complete confidence.
  • The leading star never messes up as you turn a missed hit into nothing but a cinematic feint, weaving around for a second strike in a moment afterwards.

As a sage, you gain the following class features

Hit Points


  • Hit Dice: 1d8 per sage level
  • Hit Points at 1st Level: 8 + your Constitution modifier
  • Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per sage level after 1st

Proficiencies


  • Armor: Light armor, medium armor, shields
  • Weapons: simple weapons
  • Tools: None

  • Saving Throws: Wisdom, Charisma
  • Skills: Choose two from Animal Handling, Athletics, History, Insight, Medicine, Nature, Persuasion or Religion

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your background:

  • (a) a quarterstaff or (b) a cutlass (if proficient)
  • (a) a heavy longcoat or (b) leather armor or (c) chain mail (if proficient)
  • (a) a blunderbuss and 20 bullets or (b) any simple weapon
  • (a) a priest's pack or (b) an explorer's pack
  • a shield and a memento

Creativity (Spellcasting)

Your sagacious endeavours have granted you power such that your techniques and words alone can create effects that seem magical to the common man. See the medic creation list under "Sage Creations by Level". (Creativity is synonymous with 5th edition Spellcasting. See "Casting a Spell" in the Player's Handbook for the general rules of Spellcasting in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition).

Tricks (Cantrips)

At 1st level, you know two tricks of your choice from the sage creations list. You learn additional sage tricks of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Tricks Known column of the Sage table.

Preparing and Using Creations (Preparing and Casting Spells)

The Sage table shows how many creation slots you have to use your sage creations of 1st level and higher. To use one of these sage creations⁠, you must expend a slot of the creation’s level or higher. You regain all expended creation slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of sage creations that are available for you to cast, choosing from the sage creation list. When you do so, choose a number of sage creations equal to your Wisdom modifier + your sage level (minimum of one creation). The creations⁠ must be of a level for which you have creation slots.

For example, if you are a 3rd-level sage, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level creation slots. With a Wisdom of 16, your list of prepared creations can include six creations⁠ of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level creation bless, you can use it using a 1st-level or 2nd-level slot. Using the creation doesn’t remove it from your list of prepared creations⁠.

You can also change your list of prepared creations when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of sage creations⁠ requires time spent meditating: at least 1 minute per creation level for each creation on your list.

Creative⁠ Ability (Spellcasting Ability)

Wisdom is your creative ability for your sage creations. You draw your power from enlightened understanding of the world around you. You use your Wisdom whenever a creation refers to your creative⁠ ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting⁠ the saving throw DC for a sage creation you use and when making an attack roll with one.

Creation save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Creation Attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Routine Usage (Ritual Casting)

You can use any sage creation you know as a routine if that creation has the routine tag.

Apparatus (Spellcasting Focus)

You can use a memento as an apparatus for your sage creations.

Philosophical Domain

Choose a domain related to your philosophical beliefs and conviction: Ocean, Battle, Land or Dawn. Your choice grants you additional domain creations and features at 1st level, additional ways to use your Channel Conviction at 2nd level, and more benefits at 6th, 8th and 17th level.

Domain Creations

Each domain has a list of creations — its domain creations — that you gain at the sage levels noted in the domain description. Once you gain a domain creation, you always have it prepared, and it doesn’t count against the number of creations you can prepare each day.

If you have a domain creation that doesn’t appear on the sage creation list, the creation is nonetheless a sage creation for you.

Channel Conviction

At 2nd level, you gain the ability to channel powerful energy directly from your philosophical beliefs and conviction, using that energy to fuel fantastic effects. You start with two such effects: Turn Beasts and an effect determined by your domain. Some domains grant you additional effects as you advance in levels, as noted in the domain description.

When you use your channel conviction, you choose which effect to create. You must then finish a short or long rest to use your channel conviction again.

Some channel conviction effects require saving throws. When you use such an effect from this class, the DC equals your sage creation save DC.

Beginning at 6th level, you can use your channel conviction twice between rests, and beginning at 18th level, you can use it three times between rests. When you finish a short or long rest, you regain your expended uses.

Turn Beasts

As an action, you take hold of your memento and radiate a primal presence that terrify beasts relying on instinct. Each beast that can see or hear you within 30 feet of you must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw, it is turned for 1 minute or until it takes any damage.

A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can, and it can’t willingly move to a space within 30 feet of you. It also can’t take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there’s nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

Ability Score Improvement

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.

Defeat Beasts

Starting at 5th level, when a beast⁠ fails its saving throw against your Turn Beasts feature, the creature immediately falls unconscious and cannot be woken up for 8 hours if its challenge rating is at or below a certain threshold, as shown in the Defeat Beasts table.

Defeat Beasts
Sage Level Defeats Beasts of CR...
5th 1/2 or lower
8th 1 or lower
11th 2 or lower
14th 3 or lower
17th 4 or lower

Twist Fate

Beginning at 10th level, you can call on an inner power to change the tides of battle and perform heroic acts that defy all logic and sense.

Attempting to change the course of fate requires an action. Describe the results you seek, and roll percentile dice. If you roll equal to or lower than your sage level, you succeed at twisting fate. Your DM chooses the nature of the change; the effects of any sage creation or domain creation would be appropriate.

If you manage to twist fate, you then cannot do so again for 7 days. Otherwise, you can use this feature again after you finish a long rest.

At 20th level, your attempt to twist fate automatically succeeds, no roll required.

Philosophical Domain

Sages draw their power not only from physical strength and martial superiority, but also from philosophies that lie behind their chosen martial art. Their sagacious creativity is born from a burning desire to understand the reasons why they seek mastery, not merely how to. From the fishman karate masters of the ocean domain to the swordmasters of the battle domain, sages are defined by their mastery of their mental self as much as their physical self, which allow them to draw upon power that splits the land and wakes the heavens with their techniques.

Ocean Domain

The ocean domain is the domain of the sea, to which all pirates swear themselves in pursuit of their dreams. The ocean represents absolute freedom and the dreams of men and women from all walks of life. It is the place where boundaries are shattered and the only laws are the codes of those who sail upon it.

Most sages of the ocean domain practice some form of fishman or merfolk martial arts, and use water itself as a fuel for their creations. While naturally more popular among fishmen, it is not unheard of for humans and other races who travel upon the open sea to adhere to this domain as well.

Domain Creations
Sage Level Creation
1st create or destroy water, thunderwave
3rd misty step, shatter
5th tidal wave^, wall of water^
7th control water, watery sphere^
9th cone of cold, maelstrom^

Bonus Trick

At 1st level, you learn the shape water and ray of frost tricks and they count as sage tricks for you, but doesn't count towards the number of sage tricks you know.

Aquatic Bruiser

Beginning at 1st level, you gain a swimming speed equal to your walking speed.

Additionally, your unarmed strikes deal 1d8 + your Strength modifier bludgeoning damage instead of the normal damage, and while you are wielding no weapon or shield, you gain a +2 bonus to your armor class.

Channel Conviction: Tidebreaker

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Conviction to maximize the damage dealt by your martial creations.

When you deal bludgeoning, cold or thunder damage with a weapon attack or a sage creation of 1st level or higher, you can use Channel Conviction to deal the maximum amount of damage instead of rolling

Ebb and Flow

Starting at 6th level, you begin to incorporate grappling techniques with your martial arts. Once per turn when you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack and have at least one free hand, you can make one grapple or shove attack against it as part of the same action.

Additionally, you can now attempt to grapple and shove creatures that are up to two sizes larger than you.

Imbued Strike

At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your attacks with surrounding moisture. Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 cold damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Improved Ebb and Flow

Starting at 17th level, you have advantage on attack rolls against creatures you have grappled, and those creatures have disadvantage on Strength, Dexterity and Constitution saving throws against your creations.

Additionally, you can now attempt to grapple and shove creatures that are up to three sizes larger than you.

Battle Domain

The battle domain encompasses war in all its forms. Struggle and conflict are unavoidable in life, especially so for those who brave the seas. Whether fighting for freedom or for justice, one cannot hope to achieve victory from strength alone, but must learn to draw wisdom from each battle fought, and doubly so where one might fail.

Sages of the battle domain are martial artists who split their focus between martial prowess and superhuman feats and techniques. Their creations are rarely physical creations, but extensions of their martial ability and skill. Their steps can sunder stone, and their blades can send cutting waves reaving across the battlefield.


Domain Creations
Sage Level Creation
1st earth tremor^, zephyr strike^
3rd blur, misty step
5th erupting earth^, thunder step^
7th freedom of movement, stoneskin
9th conjure volley, steel wind strike^

Bonus Proficiencies

At 1st level, you gain proficiency with martial weapons and heavy armor, and you can use any weapon you are proficient with as an apparatus for your creations.

Battle Sage

Also at 1st level, once per turn when you hit with a weapon attack, you can impose one of the following effects:

  • The target takes additional damage equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one).
  • The target has disadvantage on attack rolls against creatures other than you until the start of your next turn.
  • If the target is an object or structure, it has vulnerability to all damage dealt by the attack.

Channel Conviction: Flying Strike

At 2nd level, you can create shockwaves with your Channel Conviction that can fell multiple enemies in a single blow.

As an action, you can create a shockwave of vacuum and force each creature in a 30-foot long and 5 foot wide line to make a Dexterity saving throw. Each creature takes 2d10 + your sage level slashing damage on a failed save, and half as much on a successful one. Buildings and structures in the area do not make a saving throw, and instead takes the maximum amount of damage from this feature. This damage cannot be resisted or reduced in any way except with certain Haki feats.

Channel Conviction: Guided Strike

Starting at 6th level, you can use your Channel Conviction to guide an attack with supernatural accuracy. When you or another creature within 30 feet make an attack roll, you can use your Channel Conviction to grant the attacker a +10 bonus to the roll. You make this choice after you see the roll, but before the DM says whether the attack hits or misses.

Imbued Strike

At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your attacks with the essence of warfare. Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 damage of the same type as the weapon used to make the attack to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Enlightened Warrior

Beginning at 17th level, when you use your action to use a creation or Channel Conviction, you can make one weapon attack as a bonus action.

Land Domain

The land represents history and the legacy left behind. Like the passage of time, it is inexorable and steadfast, with sages of this domain caught in endless debate over what history should be kept for future generations, and what is too dangerous to be allowed to remain.

The creations of these sages often come in the form of vast knowledge and words of wisdom. A sharp eye for detail and scathing criticism that cut like blades through enemies, and encouraging counsel for allies.

Domain Creations
Sage Level Creation
1st bane, identify
3rd augury, detect thoughts
5th bestow curse, counterspell
7th confusion, divination
9th legend lore, synaptic static^

Bonus Proficiency

At 1st level, you gain proficiency with heavy armor.

Also at 1st level, choose two of the following skills: Engineering, History, Investigation, Medicine, Nature or Religion. You gain proficiency in the chosen skills, and can double your proficiency bonus for any ability check made with either of the chosen skills.

Channel Conviction: Stroke of Genius

Starting at 2nd level, you can scry your brain for any pertinent information to ensure that you succeed when you need to.

When you make an Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma ability check, you can use Channel Conviction to grant yourself a +10 bonus to your roll. You can do this after seeing the roll, but before knowing the outcome of the check.

Unraveling Word

Beginning at 6th level, your quick wit can save allies in a pinch and hinder your enemies. When you or a creature within 30 feet of you is the target of an attack, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Potent Creativity

Starting at 8th level, you add your Wisdom modifier to the damage you deal with any sage trick.

Scathing Censure

Starting at 17th level, when you use Unraveling Word, the attacking creature now deals only half damage with its attack even if it hits. Additionally, you now regain all uses of Unraveling Word when you finish a short or long rest.


Dawn Domain

The dawn domain represents hope and dreams. It is the unfettered sky of endless possibilities, and sages of this domain seek freedom above all else. Not necessarily only for themselves, but for all people across the four seas.

The creations of these sages are typically brought on by their infectious personalities. Their earnest words carry weight that the normal man could never muster, and can inspire all kinds of adventurous souls to take up arms and fight for a brighter future.

Domain Creations
Sage Level Creation
1st bless, healing word
3rd aid, lesser restoration
5th beacon of hope, revivify
7th aura of life, death ward
9th greater restoration, mass cure wounds

Bonus Proficiencies

At 1st level, you gain proficiency in one of the following skills of your choice: Insight, Persuasion or Performance.

Bolstered Healing

Also at 1st level, your healing not only mends wounds, but bolsters the recipient's defenses. When you restore hit points to a creature with a creation of 1st level or higher, that target additionally gains temporary hit points equal to the level of the creation + your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one).

Channel Conviction: Restorative Burst

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Conviction to rally your allies with bursting vitality.

When you restore hit points to one or more creatures with a creation of 1st level or higher, you can use your Channel Conviction to restore the maximum amount of hit points possible instead of rolling.

Channel Conviction: Second Chance

At 6th level, you can use your Channel Conviction to empower yourself and your allies in your darkest moments.

When a creature within 30 feet of you misses with an attack or fails an ability check or saving throw, you can use your reaction to grant it a bonus to its roll equal to 1d4 + half your sage level (rounded up), potentially changing the outcome.

Potent Creativity

Starting at 8th level, you add your Wisdom modifier to the damage you deal with any sage trick.

Dawnbringer

Beginning at 17th level, you gain immunity to the charmed and frightened conditions, and when you restore hit points to a creature with a creation of 1st level or higher, that creature can additionally remove any effect that causes it to be charmed, frightened or stunned. Additionally, if the creature's hit point maximum has been reduced, you restore a number of these missing hit points equal to your sage level.

Chapter 3: Characters, Roles and Dreams

Characters in the world of One Piece are not defined by their origins or past, but by their dreams and aspirations. It doesn't matter if a character is born among the privileged nobility, as the son of a great pirate or as the heir to a marine hero if their dream draws them towards a horizon away from where their blood would suggest they search for it.

When creating a character, consider what role on a ship that you imagine they would fill, and what they have done up to this point working towards that goal. Also consider why they are working towards; what ambition drives them out to sea? What dreams do they have that won't be fulfilled by staying put in their hometown? How do they interact when faced with the dreams of others, whether those align or clash with their own ideals?

Dreams

Everyone has dreams, wether they are humble and simple or grand and ambitious. A character's dream should be unique to them and act as the ultimate endgoal for their story.

A dream can be a simple desire to possess something, or a more diffuse ideal that a character is chasing. Whatever it may be, it goes beyond a simple ambition or goal; a dream is something that defines a character as a person, something they are willing to risk their life or even die for.

Each role have a few suggested dreams appropriate to the role, however work with your DM to determine exactly what motivates your character to seek adventure on the open seas of the world of One Piece.

Roles

A ship cannot brave the open sea and much less the Grand Line if it does not have a crew of diverse skills and abilities to maintain it. A character's role on the ship is as, if not even more important than their class.

By assembling a crew of different roles, a captain can bring a ship on grand adventures without worrying about the little details on the way. Each role fills a necessary role to survive the Grand Line, but the most important roles to cover are captain, navigator, doctor and shipwright. If the endgoal is to find the One Piece, a scholar will be required as well.

Captain

Perhaps the most important role to fill on a ship is the captain. As a captain, you set the course of the ship you're sailing and spearhead your crew into adventure ahead.

Your most valuable power isn't your strength in combat, though it's typically above average, but rather your ability to inspire and lead others. As a captain, the lives of your entire crew rest upon your shoulders and your duty towards them comes second to none.

Feature: Force of Personality

You have an unmistakable presence that is felt by all those around you.

People and creatures that you meet with are more likely to be ameniable and forthcoming, even if they don't understand why. Whether it is because of dread at your reputation or fascination because of your nature, common folk are more willing to lend you their ear and even aid as long as you do not show yourself openly hostile to them. Additionally, wild beasts and monsters are less likely to be directly hostile towards you, and if they are hostile they are more likely to avoid you than seek a confrontation, feeling that you are their superior.

Lastly, you have the potential to unlock the mythical power of Conqueror's Haki, and can pick Haki feats listed as Conqueror's Haki when you reach certain character levels.

d6 Dream
1 I want to be the king/queen of the pirates.

4 The world government is a scourge on the free world and must be torn down from their thrones.
5 I want to create a better world for everyone, free from aristocracy and oppression.
6 I will create the greatest armada that the world has ever seen.


Cook

The cook of the ship is tasked with providing good food and drink to the crew, as well as look after their pantry and make sure what food they have will last them from island to island.

While anyone can throw together a basic meal, only a cook can create the kind of food that makes a pirate's heart sing with courage and vigor. They keep their crewmates content and happy with their food, allowing them to focus their effort on their own matters instead.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Choose two from History, Nature, Persuasion, Performance, Sleight of Hand or Survival
  • Tool Proficiencies: Cook's Utensils
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, cook's utensils, a knife kit consisting of 3 chef knives that can be used as daggers, and a pouch containing 50 000 beri

Feature: Kitchen Artisan

As a trained cook, you've learned to use every last bit and scrap of raw ingredients to create filling and satisfying meals. While on a ship, you and your crew require only half as many rations and half as much water as you normally would to gain enough nourishment for a day.

Additionally, knowing what constitutes for food also makes it easier for you to gather sustenance for allies. Given that game animals, vegetables or fruits are available, you can always find food for yourself and up to five people that will last the day if you're given the time to hunt or forage.

Additionally, you can learn "attack cuisine" recipies, a secret form of cuisine taught in the Kamabakka kingdom. Secrets of it occasionally drift onto sea, but only those dedicated to culinary arts can hope to master this cuisine.

  • Elemental Attack (Pg. 97)
  • Exemplar (Pg. 97)

d6 Dream
1 There's a mythical sea called the "All Blue" where fish from all oceans swim. I want to find it one day.
2 I want to create the perfect dish.
3 I wish to master all 99 recipies of the so called "Attack Cuisine".
4 There are so many strange, rare creatures in the world. I want to cook a meal with every ingredient possible.
5 I want to create my own restaurant that serves food that can't be found anywhere else.
6 There is a single, mythical ingredient somewhere in the world that noone has mastered. I will be the first.

Deckhand

A deckhand's role is much less defined than some of the others, however when push comes to shove they can prove to be the most valuable member of a crew.

Deckhands are jack-of-all-trades that add a great deal of versatility and utility to the crew by helping out with other roles. While the rarely excel in any particular area, they know a little bit about everything which makes them invaluable to any crewmember that needs a helping hand every so often.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Choose two from Animal Handling, Deception, Engineering, Investigation, Perception or Sleight of Hand
  • Tool Proficiencies: One artisan's tool kit of your choice
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a hammer, a spyglass and a pouch containing 50 000 beri

Feature: All Hands on Deck

While you do not specialize in any particular role, specializing in performing menial tasks aboard the ship such as taking inventory, swabbing the deck, manning the cannons or acting lookout in the crow's nest.

You can always find your way around any ship you board and can move across the deck without having to make ability checks to figure out where specific rooms are.

Additionally, filling in on so many different roles makes it easy for you to pass yourself off as any of the roles. You can easily convince anyone who has no reason to distrust you that you are of a different role than your actual one, such as being the captain of a ship to gain audience with a local mayor, or claiming to be a doctor to gain access to a town's medical records.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Alert (PHB)
  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)
  • Mobile (PHB)

d6 Dream
1 I will do everything in my power to make sure my captain becomes the king/queen of the pirates.
2 One day, I want to be a legend sung about in songs of heroes.
3 I want to have the adventure of a lifetime!
4 I made a promise to a childhood friend to brave the seas, and I will keep that promise no matter what.
5 Noone believed me when I said I would sail around the world, and I aim to prove them all wrong.
6 There's a mythical island located somewhere in the New World that I want to see with my own eyes.


Doctor

At the end of the day, a pirate's life is a rough life filled with danger and hazards. Most crews cannot make it far without a doctor on deck for good reasons. A doctor's duties speak for themselves, as they're tasked with looking after their crewmates' health. A good deal of patience and kindness is oftentimes required for such a role, as pirates tend to be chaotic and free-spirited to the point of recklessness. Looking after people hellbent on putting themselves in danger can be a trying task, which is why any crew that has a good doctor tend to count themselves as lucky.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Medicine, choose one from Insight, Nature, Perception, Sleight of Hand or Survival
  • Tool Proficiencies: Alchemist's Supplies, Herbalism Kit
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a herbalism kit, a stethoscope, encyclopedia on medicinal herbs and plants, and a pouch containing 50 000 beri

Feature: Routine Care

Your vigil is neverending and you're always willing and able to look after your crew to make sure they rest properly. The time and money you need to craft medicines and poisons are both halved. Additionally, while you are present on a ship, your medical professionalism prevents diseases from spreading among the crew if one of them is infected.

You can also immediately tell what common injuries and ailments a person is suffering from after a brief moment of study. If the injury or ailment is something you've never seen before, you then know where you could go to research it and find a cure, if one exists.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)
  • Exemplar (Pg. 97)
  • Healer (PHB)
  • Routine Practitioner (Pg. 98)
  • Signature Technique (Pg. 98)

Dream

A doctor's dream typically revolves around their attachment to the medical arts, whether it is to find a mythical panacea for all kinds of maladies, or a specific cure for a particularly deadly disease. Choose a dream from the table below or create your own with the help of your DM.

d6 Dream
1 An incurable disease is ravaging my homeland, and I aim to find a cure before it's too late.
2 I wish to create a miracle drug that can cure any illness or sickness.
3 I want to write my own encyclopedia on rare medical herbs and plants found all over the world.
4 A doctor once gave their life to save mine. I pursue my craft to be the best I can be, and to make them proud.
5 I want to create a hospital somewhere that can take care of any patient, no matter what illness they have come down with.
6 Honestly, I'm good if I can just keep my crew of idiots alive until we reach the next island.

First Mate

Typically the vice captain, a first mate is oftentimes an informal role on the ship, earned through merit rather than appointment. A true first mate is rarely, if ever, called as such by the crew itself.

A first mate does not always take an active managerial role on the ship, as that's not their purpose. A first mate's purpose is to give the crew direction when the captain isn't around, and to keep the captain grounded in reality. Lofty dreams and ambitions are part of a pirate's life, but if the captain falters the crew will fall apart, and the first mate's job is to prevent that from happening at any cost.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Choose two from Athletics, History, Insight, Intimidation, Persuasion or Survival
  • Tool Proficiencies: None
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a simple or martial weapon of your choice and a pouch containing 100 000 beri

Feature: First Among Equals

Knowingly or not, you emit an aura of power and confidence that give others pause. As people hesitate to make enemies with you, you can usually get away with minor offenses in settlements that would normally have people shouting for the guards, such as drawing your weapon in public, refusing to pay for a service, or performing minor property damage such as breaking open a door or window. This additionally extends to your crew even if you are not physically with them, just as long as people know they are part of your crew.

Lastly, you have the potential to unlock the mythical power of Conqueror's Haki, and can pick Haki feats listed as Conqueror's Haki when you reach certain character levels.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Alert (PHB)
  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)
  • Elemental Attack (Pg. 97)

Dream

A first mate's dream typically centers around personal strength, so that they can better support their captain. Choose a dream from the table below or create your own with the help of your DM.

d6 Dream
1 My captain's dream is my dream. I will make certain it comes true.
2 I will be the strongest fighter in the world, bar none!
3 I have a rival that I wasn't strong enough to defeat before. I must grow stronger to face them again one day.
4 I seek to master the art of fighting for the sake of someone else who cannot do so anymore.
5 I have learned of a secret technique noone has ever mastered. I will be the first one to do so.
6 Seeing my crew make it to the end of Grand Line is all I care about.


Helmsman

The helmsman of a ship is the one responsible of steering it through the storm. While the navigator charts the course and the shipwright keeps the vessel in good shape, the helmsman is the one braving the ocean waves from behind the wheel.

Helmsmen are steadfast crewmembers that typically possess great physical strength. They are tasked with keeping the ship steady through the storm and safely guide it through the sharp reefs. While anyone can attempt to steer a ship, only with a skilled helmsman can it reach its full potential and become a vessel worthy of the pirate king.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Choose two from Athletics, Engineering, Insight, Intimidation, Sleight of Hand or Survival
  • Tool Proficiencies: Vehicles (Water)
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a warm coat, a lucky charm and a pouch containing 100 000 beri

Ship's Guide

You have manned many ships in your time and have learned how to instantly recognize the strengths and weaknesses of a vessel under your command. When you commandeer a ship from the helm, you instantly learn all of the ship's statistics, including its current and maximum hit points, and whether its current hit point maximum has been reduced or not.

Furthermore, the many hours spent in alone at the helm has left you with an impressive fortitude. You can move across a ship's deck in any weather and under any conditions without making ability checks or saving throws as a result of moving.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Alert (PHB)
  • Elemental Attack (Pg. 97)
  • Exemplar (Pg. 97)
  • Signature Technique (Pg. 98)
  • Tough (PHB)

Dream

A helmsman's dream oftentimes revolves around their own abilities. Sometimes it's as simple as wanting to pilot a ship to the ends of the world, but othertimes it appears as something more philosophical. Choose a dream from the table below or create your own with the help of your DM.

d6 Dream
1 One day, I will stand at the helm of a ship as it sails around the world.
2 I wish to master myself as I master the ship I command.
3 There is a legendary storm that noone has sailed through before. I will be the first to commandeer a ship through its waves.
4 I won't settle for a single ship, I want to sail all manners of ships in the world!
5 I've heard legends of a ship that can sail the skies to the moon and back. I want to sail it myself one day.
6 There's a ship known to revolt against its crews and refuse to be sailed. I will find it, and tame it with my own hands.

Musician

A role that is often understated and sometimes flat-out forgotten about is that of the musician. While some people would insist such a role is superfluous, any pirate worth their salt know you can't sail the open seas without laughter and music to blaze your trail.

Musicians keep their crew happy with performance, song and dance. They lift the tired spirits and weary bodies of their crewmates after gruesome fights or violent storms, revivifying them with joy and hope to carry on with their journey through any hardships they may face.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Performance, choose one from Acrobatics, Animal Handling, Deception, History or Persuasion
  • Tool Proficiencies: One instrument of your choice
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a costume, an instrument of your choice and a pouch containing 50 000 beri

Entertainer's Routine

Your musical talent lends itself well to currying favor. You can always find a place to perform in towns and settlements, such as taverns, and you and your crew can stay for free in such establishments as long as you perform there every night.

Additionally, you may eventually gain a reputation unrelated to your pirating activities, earning you fame as a skilled entertainer. When fans of your music recognize you in towns, they react favorably to seeing you and may help you in your endeavours, do not if doing so would endanger them somehow.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)
  • Elemental Attack (Pg. 97)

1 I left my sweetheart behind as I took to the seas. One day I will return to them with treasure in my hands.
2 I wish to record the epic adventures of my crew and immortalize them through song.
3 Somewhere in the world, there is a beauty unlike any other. I wish to lay my own eyes upon it at least once.
4 Notes on a great performance are scattered around the world. I want to collect them all and recreate it in its full glory.
5 I wish to bring the joy of laughter and song to all corners of the world.
6 I fell in love with someone who set off to sea, and now I follow their trail in hopes of a reunion.


After the captain, the navigator might be the most important role to fill on a ship. While the captain decides where to take the ship, the navigator's task is to figure out how to get there.

Being a navigator requires a level head and a quick wit, as understanding sea charts and weather conditions is entirely imperative to setting the course of a ship. The most skilled navigators can tell what the weather will be like just from a breeze in the wind or a drop of a few degrees in temperature.

Without a knowledgable navigator on board, most ships would be happy to find another harbor after setting sail, less so the one they were looking for.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Nature, choose one from Athletics, History, Religion, Perception or Survival
  • Tool Proficiencies: Cartographer's tools, Navigator's tools
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, cartographer's tools, navigator's tools, 5 blank sea charts, inkwell, quill and a pouch containing 50 000 beri

Feature: Weather Portent

As a navigator, you have an almost supernatural ability to read the weather and the sea, sometimes predicting what it will be like with uncanny accuracy.

You can always tell what the weather will be like within the next hour and always know which way is north as long as you can see the sky. Additionally, you and your crew cannot get lost as long as you have the stars or the sun to guide you.

Additionally, your expertise in charting unknown waters makes you able to tell a real map or seachart from a fake one at a glance. You also instantly know of how old a map or seachart is after studying it briefly, and whether the information it holds is still relevant or not.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)
  • Exemplar (Pg. 97)
  • Routine Practitioner (Pg. 98)
  • Signature Technique (Pg. 98)
  • Skilled (PHB)

Dream

A navigator's dream typically entails a desire to travel, blazing trails where noone has gone before. Choose a dream from the table below or create your own with the help of your DM.

d6 Dream
1 I wish to draw a map of the entire world.
2 There is a passage in the Grand Line said to be impossible to chart, and I aim to prove that wrong.
3 A legendary storm sweeps across the seas every 100 years. I aim to be the first one to conquer it.
4 A stranger gifted me a map of an ancient treasure, and I will not rest until I've found it.
5 I inherited an incomplete map of the New World, and promised to finish what my predecessor started.
6 I wish to chart a trade route that will span from the depths of Fishman Island to the most distant sky islands.

Scholar

Scholars are purveyor of knowledge and intrepid explorers of the forgotten past. While many are content staying in the safe confines of libraries and academies, others feel a longing call to adventure in their hearts and set sail for the Grand Line.

Scholars that board pirate ships typically do so because they're pursuing knowledge that the world government does not want them to find: The secrets of the mythical Void Century and the knowledge of how to read ancient poneglyphs found scattered around the world.


  • Skill Proficiencies: History, choose one from Insight, Investigation, Nature, Religion or Stealth
  • Tool Proficiencies: Disguise kit, Forgery kit
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a leatherbound journal, inkwell, quill and a pouch containing 100 000 beri

Feature: Pursuer of Secrets

You can read and write in poneglyphs. Scholars are close to the only people in the world that can do this, and are actively being hunted by the world government as a result. Knowing your enemy, you can immediately tell whether a town has a strong or weak marine force presence, and where in a settlement a marine base would be located, though you do not know any exact numbers stationed there.

Additionally, you are well-versed in the lore of the world. If you do not know a specific piece of information when you try to recall it, you instead know where you can learn this information if it can be found in places such as libraries, scriberies or held secret by known sages. Your DM might rule that certain information is near or completely inaccessible, or that it can only be found in one specific place that is extraordinarily difficult to reach.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Alert (PHB)
  • Exemplar (Pg. 97)
  • Routine Practitioner (Pg. 98)

2 I was gifted an ancient text that will lead to a great discovery, and I promised myself I'd find it.
3 The secrets of the past will unravel the world government, and that's exactly what I wish for.
4 I wish to find and control the ancient weapons of the world: Pluton, Poseidon and Uranus.
5 I am currently working on a chronicle of the world's history, and I need to learn everything to complete it.
6 The knowledge of the poneglyphs must be preserved, even if I have to run to the ends of the world to do so.


Shipwright

Sailing the Grand Line without a ship built by a skilled shipwright is to invite disaster and flirt with death. The waters of the Grand Line are as dangerous as the beasts that dwell beneath the surface, and only a monster of a ship could hope to conquer those waves.

Shipwrights are responsible for not only building, but also maintaining, the vessel upon which the crew sails from island to island. It is an artform that cannot be shorthanded, for shipwrights know that if their flagship does not hold water, their entire crew will go down with it.


  • Skill Proficiencies: Engineering, choose one from Athletics, History, Investigation, Perception or Sleight of Hand
  • Tool Proficiencies: Carpenter's tools, 2 artisan's tool sets of your choice
  • Equipment: A set of common clothes, a scroll case full of blueprints, carpenter's tools and a pouch containing 50 000 beri.

Feature: Craft Vessel

As a shipwright, naturally you know how to draw out the blueprints for and build a ship. Given the necessary materials, such as wood, steel and cloth, you can construct ships from scratch with enough time and the right tools at hand. Additionally, you can repair a ship that has a reduced hit point maximum, and when you repair a ship it regains twice as many hit points as it normally would (See building, maintaining and repairing your ship in Chapter 4).

Lastly, you immediately learn the quality of any raw materials you touch that are involved in ship-building, such as metals, wood and cloth, and how much any given amount of these raw materials are worth in beri.

Variant Feature: Bonus Feat

You gain one of the following feats of your choice:

  • Creative Dilettante (Pg. 96)

d6 Dream
1 I wish to build a ship that can sail to the ends of the world and back again.
2 The ship of my dreams is one that can fight off 10 galleons without a scratch in the hull.
3 I dream of revolutionizing the history of shipwrighting by creating something noone has seen before.
4 Any ship can sail on water. I wish to build a ship that can sail the skies!
5 My mentor created a work of art but died before seeing it realized. I swore to make their dream a reality.
6 There exists a storm that no ship has conquered, and I intend to build the ship that could.

Chapter 4: Equipment and Items

Marketplaces exist on every island and in every city, carrying with them a wide variety of goods and sundries for the traveling adventurer. You will find fish mongers, farmers, clothes boutiques, weaponsmiths and shipwrights in just about every major port city, while smaller hamlets might only have a single general store or blacksmith available.

Merchants and traders are vital for every pirates that intends to take to the sea. Not only do they require their ship to be seaworthy and capable of holding up to the storms of the Grand Line, without a full larder and the necessary sea charts they'd be lucky to reach the next island. If they don't deal in trade, they still need there to be plentiful loot when they raid the towns.

Wealth

The main currency in the world of One Piece is known as Beri (sometimes spelled as Beli, Berry or Belly). It most commonly occurs in paper form, though coins do exist, and has no fractional unit. As such, Beli prices tend to be in the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands for most adventuring gear, a low quality sword costing the aspiring swordsman around 50 000 beli.

The exchange rate between beri and regular Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition currency can be calculated from the idea that 1 beri = 1 copper coin. However, in order to have the prices check out as you scale up the coinage, the exchange rate between coins i made tenfold the standard value, as described below.

Beri Exchange Rate
Coin Beri Equivalent
Copper (cp) 1 Beri
Silver (sp) 100 Beri
Gold (gp) 10 000 Beri

Treasure and Loot

Finding treasure and loot is, to many pirates, the very reason for their existence. Even those who seek freedom and adventure alone typically come upon some kind of treasure on their travel. Though luster of gemstones and the glitter of gold attracts the eye, it cannot fill one's belly. As such, trading in treasure for money is often as vital as finding it to begin with.

Weapons, Armor and other Equipment. Typically, weapons and armor you find as treasure or loot aren't in tip-top condition, and selling it typically only nets you half of the market value. Rare and unique finds can however be worth more than a chest full of gold, however, especially if it is a weapon with a history. Conversely, weapons and armor damaged by battle typically aren't worth much except as scrap metal.

Gems, Jewelry and Art Pieces. These types of items retain their full value when sold, making them the most valuable form of treasure in terms of monetary value. Exceptionally rare or unique pieces might be difficult to sell however, and not every merchant is scrupulous enough to offer a fair deal.

Trade Goods. While not as exciting as chests of gold and silver, sacks full of wheat and barrels of salt and freshwater are just as valuable if not more to traveling pirates, and oftentimes much easier to come upon. Most smaller towns trade in these wares more often than they use monetary transactions, and like gems and art pieces they retain their full market value when sold.

Treasure Maps and Sea Charts. Tales of buried treasure left behind by legendary pirates are abundant all across the four seas, and even a fake map can sometimes be treated like the treasure itself. Likewise, mundane maps and sea charts of distant islands or dangerous waters are invaluable to most seafarers, causing these items to maintain their full market value as well.

Expenses

Life on the seas is one of freedom from law and social classes, however it is not freedom from the need to eat and sleep. As long as you have the food, water and living space to suffice long trips, travel from island to island can be a pleasant cruise disregarding any unforseen setbacks.

Before you set off on the seas with a ship, it is important to note how much provisions you have stocked for the journey. These provisions entails more than simple rations, including cooked food, fresh water, comfortable living quarters and any utilities or specific consumables a crew might need on their trip, such as lemons to counteract scurvy. Simply calculate the number of days you aim to spend at sea and then multiply it by the amount of beri required to maintain a specific lifestyle for that time. It's generally a good idea to stock a little extra, as the seas are uncertain especially so in the Grand Line. Typically, this duty falls on the ship's cook.

For instance, if it will take 7 days to travel from one island to the next and you aim to maintain a modest lifestyle (10 000 beri per day) for a crew of 5 people, you will need 350 000 beri's worth of provisions to last you the entire trip.

Lifestyle Expenses
Lifestyle Price/Day
Wretched -
Squalid 500 beri
Poor 1 000 beri
Modest 10 000 beri
Comfortable 20 000 beri
Wealthy 40 000 beri
Aristocratic 100 000 beri minimum

Optional Rule: Poor Living

A Dungeon Master can choose to introduce a measure of hardship that represents the challenges of living a poor or worse lifestyle in order to add a sensation of realism and grit to their campaign.

While a crew is maintaining modest or better lifestyle conditions, they generally don't have to worry about food and water running out. Should something happen to worsen their conditions, such as losing half their provisions to a storm or lacking the money to properly stock up between voyages, then their situation gets a bit more perilous. See the table below for possible repercussions that may follow when leading a poor lifestyle or worse.

Wretched Disaster. The crew has no food or water, unless they find both elsewhere they suffer the effects of lacking food and water as described in chapter 7 of the player's handbook.
Squalid Starvation. The crew has barely enough water to sustain themselves, but food has run out or spoiled. Unless they find food elsewhere they suffer the effects of starvation as described in chapter 7 of the player's handbook.
Poor Rationing. Food and water is beginning to run out, forcing the crew to ration what's left. Living conditions have worsened, imposing disadvantage on all Constitution saving throws to resist disease, exhaustion or poison.

Optional Rule: Mutiny

If the party has any NPC crewmates, living for extended periods of time under poor or worse conditions can eventually cause a mutiny. When this happens, the NPC crew typically turns hostile and attempts to overthrow the current leadership, more often than not by force.

If a crew is approaching the stage of mutiny as described in the Days Before Mutiny Table below, roll a "Mutiny saving throw" which is a flat d20. The DC for the check equals 10 + 1 per number of days spent in squalid or worse conditions.

Days Before Mutiny
Lifestyle Hirelings Loyal Crew
Wretched 2 3
Squalid 4 5
Poor 5 7

Repeat this saving throw at the end of each day that the lifestyle conditions do not get better. The first time that the crew fails the saving throw, dissent begins to spread amongst it and one or more may choose to confront the ship's captain. When this happens, the captain or vice captain might attempt a Charisma (Intimidation) or Charisma (Persuasion) check to quell any dissent. The DC for this check equals the current Mutiny saving throw.

On a successful check, the mutiny is quelled and no further Mutiny saving throws need to be rolled for a number of days equal to the captain's or vice captain's Charisma modifier (minimum of one day). After these days have passed, if conditions haven't improved, resume rolling the Mutiny saving throws as normal. If the check fails, the crew turns hostile towards the players and might attack them.

Food, Drink and Lodging

Most pirates sleep on their ship, while many marines have a local headquarters that will provide food and lodging. However, ever so often it becomes necessary for the party to find a place to stay for the night, or simply somewhere to eat. These prices are included in your total lifestyle expenses.

Armor and Shields

In the world of One Piece, protection from all manners of harm is paramount for most adventurers. However, few pirates would consider taking to the seas in full plate armor, given the difficulty of swimming when clad in suits of steel and metal. The use of lighter armors is more widespread, not to mention more commonly available. Some additional forms of armor exist in this setting.

Navy Uniform. The navy standard uniform is made from durable cloth capable of surviving the harsh seas, though not directly designed for close-quarters combat.

Light Longcoat. Longcoats primarily made out of sturdy cloth and leather, made for comfort and ease of movement over protection. Favored by marines, each soldier earns a longcoat when they reach ensign rank or higher.

Heavy Longcoat. These longcoats are made out of thick hides or leather interlocked with pieces of metal or boiled leather for extra protection, often accompanied by ammunition belts and knife straps. Popular among pirates for the balance between protection and versatility, though the bulk can make it unwieldy to people with less physical strength.


Weapons

Weapons exist in a wide variety of forms in the world of One Piece. Firearms are commonly used, having replaced bows and crossbows as the most basic forms of ranged weaponry since the rise of gundpowder. This introduces a few additional properties on top of the ones presented in the player's handbook.

Misfire. All firearms have a specific misfire score. On attack rolls equal to or lower than a weapon's misfire score, the gun misfires and temporarily breaks. While broken, the gun cannot be fired until repaired, which can be done as an action by making a DC 12 Dexterity check, or a DC 10 Gunsmith's tool check. On a successful check, the gun is repaired and can be used again as normal.

Reload. All firearms have a specific reload score as well. This counts how many times the firearm can be used to attack with before requiring to be reloaded. Reloading a firearm typically takes an action.

Siege. These weapons are particularly suited for tearing down structure. Attacks with these weapons deal double damage to structures and buildings, and treat its damage threshold as 0.

Additional Ranged Weapons

The existence of firearms introduce a plethora of ranged weapon choices to use by players and NPCs alike, both martial and simple weapons from the crude blunderbuss to the marvel of engineering that is the revolver.

Blunderbuss. A simple, muzzle-loaded rifle typically made out of steel or brass that fires small lead balls in a hail, much like a predecessor to the shotgun. Its ammunition type and flared muzzle makes it relatively short range, but it can be deadly in close-quarters combat.

Flintlock. The most common gun found on the seas due to being relatively cheap and easy to mass produce, flintlock are single shot pistols with short effective range. Rain and weather have a severe effect on the weapon's reliability, meaning it is typically used only by those that can't afford better firearms.

Musket. Muskets in the world of One Piece are outfitted with a percussion cap rather than a flintlock mechanism, making them more reliable to use. The muskets presented her are outfitted with a revolving chamber, allowing repeating shots to be taken before needing to be reloaded. This weapon is typically used by marine soldiers.

Pistol. Pistols, much like muskets, use a percussion cap and typically have an extended chamber for ammunition as well, making them more versatile then flintlocks in return for being much more expensive to produce. It is the typical sidearm of most marine soldiers.

Revolver. The most modern weapon design, revolvers are repeating handguns equipped with a revolving chamber, making them very useful for firing multiple rounds in quick succession. The design includes rifled barrels and double action operation, making them superior to common pistols but much more expensive to develop.

Additional Melee Weapons

A few additional melee weapons ar also introduced in the setting, as they see prevalent use around the world, some boasting an almost mythical status.

Cutlass. Typically featuring a basket hilt and a curved, single-edged blade, these swords trade some of the lightness of a scimitar for more stopping power. A pirate favorite.

Katana. Originating from Wano, katana are popular weapons among swordsmen and marine officers. Less bulky than double-edged longswords but also less durable. The slender blade makes it possible to wield them with speed over power.

Odachi. Like katana, these two-handed blades originate from Wano. Long and slender blades, they sacrifice weight and stopping power for agility and flexibility.

Adventuring Gear

This section describes items unique to the setting, using their own mechanics and special rules.

Firearms Bullets. Iron or lead balls used as ammunition in the blunderbuss, flintlock, musket, rifle and revolver.

Apparatus. An apparatus is a mechanism or item of some sort that allow gadgeteers to create fantastic effects, such as dials from the sky islands or an experimental rod with sprockets and gyri attached to it.

Log pose. In the Grand Line, compasses do not work because of the strong magnetic fields surrounding each island. A log pose is required to make navigation rolls at all while in the Grand Line, otherwise you're sailing blindly.

Preservation Box. A massive iron box filled with ice or other coolants, and tightly insulated from the elements. Helps keep fresh produce or medicine from spoiling on long trips, allowing for crews to enjoy better and healthier food and medical treatment on their travels.

Sea Charts. Sea charts map the nearby island as well as water depth and land elevations. While a navigator has sea charts at hand, it makes all navigation checks at advantage while within the area.

Tools

A few additional tools appear in this setting, using their own mechanics and special rules as well.

Appraiser's Tools. A tool kit consisting of magnifying glass, reference material, a small hammer and scales with which to weigh small items. It's useful for establishing the proper value of bounty and loot you find on your travels.

Dial Kit. A set of tools containing everything a tinkerer needs in order to repair and prepare dials, described later in the chapter. With a dial kit, you can repair cracked dials or identify different types of dials and their uses. You also need this in order to repair broken skyborne vehicles.

Sky Vehicles. On sky islands, dials are used in place of common watercrafts. Typically crafted from wood with breath dials attached to them, skyborne vehicles can race across clouds and water at great speeds. These kinds of vehicles come in three distinct forms: Surfers, shooters and wavers.

Surfer. Surfers superficially resemble regular surfing boards, however they have a set of breath dials attached to the back end or sides which serve to propel the board without the need for wind or waves. It is the middle ground for sky vehicles, faster than the skates but more nimble and lighter than a waver.

Shooters. Shooters have a similar shape to ice skates that are attached to feet or foot-wear, however with a broader and dull blade. Breath dials attached to them allow the wearer to travel over water and clouds with practice. The most agile of all sky vehicles, the shooters are difficult to master but rewarding as they carry next to no bulk.

Waver. The largest of the sky vehicles, the waver resembles a water scooter and functions practically the same, using a larger breath dial (or, in the case of rare antiques, jet dial) as an engine. By far the fastest of the three sky vehicles, it can easily overwhelm the non-proficient user due to its fast accelerations.

Transponder Snails

Transponder snails are a unique genus of snails with the ability to communicate with eachother through telepathy, capable of using electronic signals to reach across great distances. Coupled with their ability to perfectly mimic human speech and even expressions, they have been domesticated for use as phones across the world. These snails are also referred to as "den den mushi".

Older transponder snails are typically as big as a domestic cat, while baby transponder snails are small enough to fit in a hand, allowing them to act as mobile devices. Transponder snails are typically docile by nature and do not mind being domesticated, as it provides a source of food and safety. The attachments necessary to use them for communication also does not cause them particular harm or discomfort.

Common transponder snails are typically used only by government officials and wealthy pirate captains with the means to procure one. They are typically not used by the normal citizen, though they become more common throughout the Grand Line, especially in the New World.

Other forms of transponder snails do exist, but are extremely rare. Visual transponder snails are used widely by the world government but are mostly unheard of elsewhere.

Black Transponder Snails. Typically only used by marines, black transponder snails are a subspecies that remain small for life. Typically small enough to be fitted to one's wrist, these transponder snails pick up and eavesdrop on other forms of transponder snails, allowing the user to listen in on conversations between other transponder snails.

Cameko Transponder Snails. is able to store images and videos. It is a younger visual transponder snail. While taking a photo, it create flashes of light with its eyes in order to perform flash photography. It is usually outfitted with an antenna connected to the shell, that allows it to send signals and live video feeds to their connected proko.


Horned Transponder Snails. These transponder snails do not recieve signals for communication, instead they broadcast signals that intercept other transponder snails, making it impossible to use them in their vicinity. Typically used by pirates who wish to hold meetings in secret.

Proko Transponder Snails. This subspecies of transponder snails can recieve, project and broadcast what a cameko subspecies sees onto a bigger video screen. It is an older visual transponder snail. They are able to broadcast their frequencies between two relatively close locations.

Surveillance Transponder Snails. An adult form of the cameko transponder snails. Too big to be kept and moved around by hand, these transponder snails can be placed strategically to survey an area. Multiple surveillance transponder snails can broadcast their sight to a single proko, allowing an effective network to be set up with enough funds. Typically only important government facilities employ this level of surveillance.

Mounts and Vehicles

The world is a massive, expansive reach of uncharted waters and lands unknown. Getting around on foot is next to impossible, and even islands can span many miles of unforgiving wilderness filled with beasts and monsters. To this end, crews must band together and secure vessels for themselves to travel on, if they wish to explore everything that the world has to offer.

Ships and Waterborne Vessels

No pirate crew worth their salt can even call themselves a crew unless they have a ship of their own. Whether it's a humble keelboat or a massive galleon, a crew's ship is their heart without which they cannot even leave the harbor behind. Most crews start out humbly with a simple rowboat or keelboat, but in order to cross reverse mountain into the Grand Line, they must find the means to acquire a proper ship first, and establish enough of a crew to sail it.

Caravel. Caravels are sailing ships distinguished by their lateen sails and 2 or more masts. Light and fast, caravels make for excellent expeditionary ships and can be manned by a small crew. In this setting, a caravel specifically refers to a smaller sailing vessel of its type.

Carrack. Carracks are caravel-built ships with 3 to 4 masts and both lateen and square-rigged sails, and predecessor to the galleon. In this setting, carrack refers to a caravel-built warship. It is specifically favored among pirates and marines.

Galleon. The largest available ships in the setting, galleons are multi-decked sailing ships that can easily be outfitted and repurposed as warships. Typically the flagships of any fleet, a galleon can hold a big crew and plenty of cargo, while retaining better maneuverability than a carrack.

Galley. Galleys are long vessels that rely on sails and sizable rowing crews to move. These ships can carry siege weapons and soldiers to war or transport large amounts of cargo for merchants. However, their reliance on manpower for their speed means they cannot carry heavy weaponry for use, making them less useful in naval warfare.

Longship. Longships are vessels that rely on a rowing crew and sails to move across the sea, often outfitted with a single full-rigged mast. The size of a longship makes it easy for troops to get on and off quickly, making it the perfect ship for engaging in surprise strikes. Typically only used by giants in this setting.

Keelboat. One of the smallest sailing vessels, keelboats can be sailed or rowed by a single person. These ships often transport small amounts of cargo or passengers. They're perfect for pleasure cruises, as they're easier and less expensive to operate than larger vessels.

Rowboat. The humble rowboat serves to ferry passengers back and forth from larger ships or to navigate lakes and rivers. Due to its simple, versatile design, a rowboat has no decks or typical crew. Weighing 100 pounds, a rowboat is easy to transport and might be carried by larger ships.

Sloop. A small, nimble and agile sailing vessel with a single mast and for-and-aft-rigged sails. A sloop in this setting refers to smaller boats and not a sloop-of-war. Its small size makes it easy to maneuver, oftentimes being a prime choice for pirate crews who only just began their journey.

Cannons

In naval battles, cannons serve as the primary weapon of most all seafaring vessels. A cannon's destructive properties are measured by the pound rating of the ammunition it fires: The larger the pound rating, the more damage the cannon deals on a successful hit. However, cannons are heavy duty equipment, and larger cannons typically can't be mounted on smaller vessels at all. Furthermore, the size of the vessel determines how many cannons can even fit on the ship to begin with, regardless of weight and size.

Damage. All cannons deal bludgeoning damage with basic round shots, however different forms of ammunition exist. See the Cannon Shot table for more information.

Misfire. All cannons have a relatively high misfire score, as anything from the weather to the ambient temperature can affect cannon efficiency.

Clean and Reload. Smaller guns, such as the swivel gun, can be effectivelly manned and used by a single person, however larger cannons typically require a group of two to three in order to fire effectively each turn.

Ship Availability. Some ships are better designed to handle the weight and recoil of cannons than others. If a ship fires a cannon for which it isn't designed, such as a caravel loading and firing a 24-pounder cannon, then the ship takes bludgeoning damage equal to the average damage of the cannon whenever it is fired (in this case, that would result in 33 (6d10) bludgeoning damage.)

Cannon Shot
Shot Cost Damage Type Damage Spread
Round Shot 10 000 beri Bludgeoning Sphere (5 feet radius)
Grapeshot 15 000 beri Piercing Cone (30 feet)
Chain Shot 15 000 beri Bludgeoning Line (5 feet wide)
Exploding Shell 20 000 beri Fire Sphere (20 feet radius)
Flame Dial 100 000 beri Fire Line (10 feet wide)

Damage Spread. A shot type's damage spread determines the splash zone resulting from a hit. Sphere-shaped spreads extend from the shot's impact, while cone and line-shaped spreads extend from the muzzle of the cannon. If the damage shape is in a line, the length of the line equals the cannon's normal range. Each creature that is not the target but are within the damage spread when the cannon is fired must make a Dexterity saving throw. A creature takes half the damage of the cannon's damage roll on a failed save, and no damage on a successful one.

Firing a Cannon. When you fire a cannon, you make a ranged attack roll with the cannon as normal, using your Dexterity modifier. Unless you have proficiency with cannons, you do not add your proficiency modifier to attacks with them.

Ranged Cannon Attack = d20 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier
Cannon Save DC = 8 + number of damage dice of the cannon

Building, Maintaining and Repairing Your Ship

Most renowned pirate crews have signature ships unique in their design. These are ships that have been either built or upgraded by the hands of a skilled shipwright.

The difference between a crew with and without a skilled shipwright is clear as day from a glance at their ship. Strengthened hulls, heavier cannons and propulsion systems mark a vessel in the care of a skilled shipwright with the proper means to work with, and can make the difference between life and death on the open seas.

Building a Ship

A shipwright does not need to bargain with others in order to get a ship up and running for their allies. All shipwrights have the knowledge necessary to craft a seafaring vessel from scratch, what they need is the resources and manpower. In order to begin the construction of a ship, the crew must have at least one shipwright as part of their crew. However, other participants in the crafting process do not need to be shipwrights.

Building your own ship is a time-consuming effort, but it is relatively cheaper than buying one from a company. In order to build a ship, you need resources such as wood, iron and cloth of a value equal to half the market value of the ship you are attempting to build, as well as 8 hours set aside for crafting each day. So if you for instance are attempting to build a caravel, you would need 50 million beri's worth of resources.

As you craft, you make progress in increments measured in beli. The increments are decided by a tool ability check using your carpenter's tools, as described in the Crafting Process table below. Creatures that have the Craft Vessel feature make this check at advantage, and alternatively creatures without proficiency with carpenter's tools can make an Intelligence (Engineering) or Strength (Athletics) skill check at disadvantage, symbolizing mental and physical labor. Each participating creature makes its own tool or skill ability check, and the results are pooled together for a total progress sum for the day. You make these tool and ability checks until your reach the market value of the ship you are crafting, for example if you make 250 000 beri's worth of progress per day, you will be able to complete a caravel (market value of 100 million beri) in 400 days. If two of your crew members help you and add a progress of 125 000 beri's worth of progress per day each, you will be able to finish the ship in only 200 days.

Crafting Process
Crafting Check Result Progress (in beli)
5 or lower 10 000
10 50 000
15 125 000
20 250 000
25 500 000
30 or higher 1 000 000

Damage and Repairs

Damage to a crew's ship on the seas is not a possibility, but an eventuality. Rough seas, harsh weather, sharp reefs and enemy ships will all tear away at your ship's hull and wear down the masts and sails. Mooring to repair and maintain your ship in between is imperative to keeping it seaworthy.

Whenever a ship suffers damage, its hit point maximum is reduced by a number equal to half the damage it suffered. Any crewmate can attempt to make repairs to restore lost hit points to a ship, but only a shipwright can restore lost maximum hit points. If a ship's hit point maximum is reduced below half its normal value, the ship is irrepairably damaged and not even a shipwright can restore it to its original hit points maximum.

A creature can spend anywhere between 1 to 8 hours doing repairs to a ship. For each hour a creature spends doing repairs, it can roll a DC 10 tool ability check with carpenter's tools, or alternatively an Intelligence (Engineering) or Strength (Athletics) ability check at disadvantage. On a successful check, the ship regains 5 hit points, or twice that if the creature making the check is a shipwright. A shipwright also restores the ship's hit point maximum by an equal amount on a successful check.

If a ship is brought to 0 hit points, it begins taking in water. The ship can remain afloat for a number of minutes equal to 10 + half its damage threshold value before completely sinking. While the ship is still afloat, a creature can attempt to temporarily block the leakage with a DC 15 tool ability check with carpenter's tools, or a DC 20 Intelligence (Engineering) or Strength (Athletics) check. On a successful check, the hole is temporarily fixed and the ship can stay afloat for an additional 10 minutes or until it takes damage again.

Each time the ship suffers damage while below 0 hit points, a new hole opens in the hull requiring one additional action to stop the ship from taking in water.

Klabautermann: Spirit of the Ship

Legends tell of a mythical water spirit known as the Klabautermann that dwells in ships beloved by their crew. They are said to warn the crew of danger and watch over the ship when they aren't present.

Using the Klabautermann. A DM can choose to bestow a ship with a klabautermann at their discretion. The spirit typically does not interact directly with the players or the crew, instead acting in silent vigil. Whenever the crew takes a long rest while damage has been done to the ship, the klabautermann will do repairs to the ship if it's below half its hit point maximum. These repairs also restores lost hit points maximum.

Additionally, a ship with a klabautermann is always considered to be under the alarm creation. The trigger for this alarm is anything that seeks to harm the ship or the crew, and can manifest as the ship suddenly reeling to the side or the sails unfurling suddenly.

Optional Rule: Upgrading your Ship

Having your own ship is a mark of pride for any captain, however in order to really stand out on the seas one must make additions to it that help it stand out from the common ship.

A skilled shipwright can upgrade an existing ship with all manners of additions and modifications. Upgrades require a creative mind and is typically not a service provided by most common shipwrights, including larger companies.

When crafting an upgrade for a ship, you follow the same crafting rules as the ones for building a ship. You can only craft one upgrade at a time, and other crewmembers can help you as with building a ship. The cost listed for each upgrade generally entails the resources necessary to craft the upgrade, such as lumber, steel or clockwork mechanisms. In order to craft an upgrade for a ship, you must first have a proficiency bonus equal to the number listed in the Proficiency column of the Ship Upgrades table. Additionally, the ship must meet the requirements listed for the upgrade, as described in the Requirement column of the same table.

Some upgrades come with additional bonuses to the ship, ranging from increased storage to sudden acceleration.

Activation. This upgrade is normally not in effect. Someone on the crew (typically the helmsman) must use an action to activate the upgrade.

Burst of Speed. As an action, the current helmsman of the ship can activate the turbo. This expends all remaining fuel in all tanks and moves the ship a number of feet in a straight line equal to the total amount of fuel consumed.

Dive. This upgrade creates a shell around the ship, allowing it to dive beneath the ocean's surface and travel along the ocean floor.

Fish Tank. A fish tank allows the crew to keep fresh fish on board, which can be used for food. This halves the crew's lifestyle expenses if they have a cook on board.

Fuel Supply. A fuel supply is measured in gallons of fuel. Fuel supply by itself does nothing, however it is necessary in order to use other specific upgrades that require fuel.

Gardening. Gardening allows the crew to grow plants, typically for medicine or food, on the ship. This halves the crew's lifestyle expenses if they have a doctor on board.

Lightweight. This makes the ship nimble and light, allowing it to travel in shallow water and sail upon the clouds of sky islands.

Reverse. This upgrade allows the ship to move in a straight line backwards by expending fuel.

Chapter 5: Customization Options

In addition to the many options presented in race, class and role choice, there exist a few additional means of customization for players who truly wish to tailor their character exactly to what they envision. Below are a few listed options for additional ways to customize your character.

Multiclassing

Rules on Multiclassing can be found in chapter 6, p.163 of the Player's Handbook. Multiclassing in this system is an optional rule, and the following requirements apply to the class options presented in chapter 3 of this document.

Multiclassing Prerequisites
Class Ability Score Minimum
Barbarian Strength 13 and Constitution 13
Bard Charisma 13
Brawler Dexterity 13 and Wisdom 13
Fighter Strength 13 or Dexterity 13
Gadgeteer Intelligence 13
Marksman Dexterity 13 and Wisdom 13
Medic Wisdom 13
Paragon Strength and Charisma 13
Rogue Dexterity 13
Sage Wisdom 13

Feats

A feat represents a talent or an area of expertise that gives a character spe⁠cial capabilities. It embodies training, experience, and abi⁠lities beyond what a class provides.

When your class gives you the Ability Score Improvement feature, you can forgo taking that feature to take a feat of your choice instead. You can take each feat only once, unless the feat’s description says otherwise.

You must meet any prerequisite specified in a feat to take that feat. If you ever lose a feat’s prerequisite, you can’t use that feat until you regain the prerequisite. For example, the Grappler feat requires you to have a Strength of 13 or higher. If your Strength is reduced below 13 somehow — perhaps by a withering curse — you can’t benefit from the Grappler feat until your Strength is restored.

Available Feats (Player's Handbook)

The following feats are available for consideration to players who wish to use their Ability Score Improvement feature to pick a feat. Feats not listed her are normally not allowed, but the DM is allowed to waver this restriction to better fit the feel of their campaign. The feats listed below appear as they are found in Chapter 6 of the Player's Handbook.

Additional Feats

The following additional feats can be used with this document. Some of them are merely reworded from existing feats, while others are new feats designed specifically for use with this document.

Creative Dilettante

You've dabbled in a little bit of everything, learning a few tricks to help in your adventuring life. You gain the following benefits:

  • You learn two tricks of your choice from any class' creation list. Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma is your creative ability for these tricks (you choose which when you gain this feat).
  • You learn one 1st-level creation of your choice with the usage time of one action that lacks the routine tag. You can use this creation once without expending a creation slot, and must finish a long rest before you can do so again. You can also use this creation with any creation slots you have. Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma is your creative ability for this creation (you choose which when you gain this feat).

Elemental Adept

Prerequisite: The ability to use at least one creation

When you gain this feat, choose one of the following damage types: acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder.

Creations you use ignore resistance to damage of the chosen type. In addition, when you roll damage for a creation that deals damage of that type, you can treat any 1 on a damage die as a 2.

You can select this feat multiple times. Each time you do so, you must choose a different damage type.

Elemental Attack

Prerequisite: Proficiency with a martial weapon

You've learned how to infuse elemental energy into your attacks, such as harnessing friction to ignite your weapon, building static electricity to shock your foes, gathering vapor in the air to douse enemies in chilling water, or coating your weapon in corrosive acid or baleful poison.

  • As a bonus action on your turn, you can cause the next weapon attack you make before the end of your turn to deal additional damage equal to 1d8 + your proficiency bonus. This damage is your choice of acid, cold, fire, lightning or poison damage. You choose which damage type when you gain this feat, and your choice cannot be changed later. You can gain this feat multiple times, choosing a different damage type each time you gain it.
  • If you choose acid damage, the attack corrodes soluble material that isn't being worn or carried. If you choose cold damage, the attack puts out any open, non-created flame within 5 feet of your target. If you choose fire damage, the attack ignites flammable material that isn't being worn or carried. If you choose lightning damage, the attack creates a strong gust that clears any fog or smoke in a 5-foot cube occupied by you or the target. If you choose poison damage, all tiny non-created plants within 5 feet of the target immediately wilt and die.

Exemplar

Your skill stands out from even your peers. Choose two of your skill or tool proficiencies. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make using either of these skills or tools. You cannot choose a skill or tool proficiency that already benefits from a similar effect, such as Expertise.

Flying Strikes

Prerequisite: Strength or Dexterity 13 or higher

You've honed your skill with weapons of all kinds, able to shape projectiles out of thin air.

  • Increase your Strength or Dexterity by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You gain a special ranged weapon attack you can make in place of any regular weapon attack on your turn. You must be wielding a melee weapon to use this attack option. You are proficient with it, and add the modifier of the ability score you increased with this feat to the attack and damage roll (You must use the same ability for both rolls). Its damage type and damage die is the same as the weapon you are wielding, and it has a normal range of 30 feet and a long range of 120 feet.

Gadget Sniper

Prerequisite: The ability to use at least one creation

You have learned techniques to enhance your attacks with certain kinds of creations, gaining the following benefits:

  • When you use a creation that requires you to make an attack roll, the creation’s range is doubled.
  • Your ranged creation attacks ignore half cover and three-quarters cover.
  • You learn one trick that requires an attack roll. Choose the trick from the any class' creation list. Your creative ability for this creation is your choice of Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma.

Gourmand

Prerequisite: Proficiency with cook's utensils

You are a chef extraordinary, able to turn simple rations into a gourmet meal.

  • Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any check you make with cook's utensils.
  • You can spend 1 hour, which can be done as part of a short or long rest, to transform a number of rations equal to 4 + your proficiency bonus into meals, provided you have cook's utensils at hand. The meal retains its potency for up to 8 hours, after which it becomes normal rations again. A creature that eats one of these meals gain enough nourishment to sustain them for a day, and additionally its current hit points and hit point maximum both increases by a number equal to 4 + your proficiency bonus until it finishes a long rest. Once a creature benefits from a meal, it must finish a long rest before it can do so again.

Iaijutsu

You've mastered the art of cutting down enemies in the same motion used to draw your blade.

  • You can draw a cutlass, katana, longsword or rapier as part of any attack made with the weapon.
  • If you draw a cutlass, katana, longsword or rapier as part of an attack made with it, you gain a +5 bonus to the attack's damage roll.
  • If a creature moves within 5 feet of you while you have a cutlass, katana, longsword or rapier stowed, you can make an opportunity attack against the creature with the stowed weapon.

Rokushiki Initiate

Having studied the basics of Rokushiki, you've learned how to wield a basic version of the six powers.

  • You gain 2 spirit points. Once you spend a spirit point, it is unavailable until you finish a short or long rest.
  • When you make an unarmed strike, you can use your choice of Strength or Dexterity for the attack and damage roll as long as you're wearing light or no armor. You must use the same ability for both rolls. Additionally, your unarmed strikes now use a d4 damage die instead of the normal damage.
  • You learn one rokushiki technique from the Rokushiki Master class. You cannot choose a technique you already know, and you cannot change your choice later. If a technique references you brawling die, you use a d4 die unless you have a different one.

Routine Practitioner

Prerequisite: Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma 13 or higher

You have learned a number of creations that you can use as routines. These creations are written in a journal, which you must have in hand while using one of them.

When you choose this feat, you acquire a journal holding two 1st-level creations of your choice. Choose one of the following classes: Bard, gadgeteer, medic or sage. You must choose your creations from that class’ creation list, and the creations you choose must have the routine tag. The class you choose also determines your creative ability for these creations: Charisma for bard, Intelligence for gadgeteer, and Wisdom for medic or sage.

If you come across a creations in written form, such as a blueprint or a gadgeteer's notebook, you might be able to add it to your journal. The creation must be on the creation list for the class you chose, the creation’s level can be no higher than half your level (rounded up), and it must have the routine tag. The process of copying the creation into your journal takes 2 hours per level of the creation, and costs 50 gp per level. The cost represents material components you expend as you experiment with the creation to master it, as well as the fine inks you need to record it.

Signature Technique

Prerequisite: Proficiency with a martial weapon

You've developed a powerful technique using your weapon of choice: A unique move that only you know how to pull off.

  • Choose the range and shape for your signature technique: A 20-foot cone, a 15-foot square, a 10-foot radius sphere, or a 30 foot long and 5 foot wide line. Regardless of your choice, the technique originates from your position. You cannot change your choice later.
  • When you take the Attack action on your turn, you can replace one of your attacks with this your signature technique. Each creature within range must then make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 3d6 + your proficiency bonus on a failed save and half as much on a success. The damage type is either bludgeoning, piercing or slashing (You choose which when you gain this feat). The DC for this saving throw is calculated as 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Dexterity modifier (your choice).
  • You can use this signature technique a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Trick Foiler

You have practiced techniques useful in melee combat against gadgeteers, gaining the following benefits:

  • When a creature within 5 feet of you uses a creation, you can use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against that creature.
  • When you damage a creature that is concentrating on a creation, that creature has disadvantage on the saving throw it makes to maintain its concentration.
  • You have advantage on saving throws against creations used within 5 feet of you.

Two-Weapon Master

You've learned how to take full advantage of fighting with a weapon in each hand.

  • When you engage in two-weapon fighting, the number of attacks you can make as a bonus action now equals half your proficiency bonus (rounded down) instead of one.
  • When you take the Attack action while engaged in two-weapon fighting, you can replace one weapon attack with a feint. Make a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check contested by the target's Wisdom (Insight). If you win the check, you have advantage on the next weapon attack against the target before the end of your turn.

War Scholar

Prerequisite: The ability to use at least one creation

You have practiced the use of creations in the midst of combat, learning techniques that grant you the following benefits:

  • You have advantage on Constitution saving throws that you make to maintain your concentration on a creation when you take damage.
  • You can perform the somatic components of creations even when you have weapons or a shield in one or both hands.
  • When a hostile creature’s movement provokes an opportunity attack from you, you can use your reaction to use a creation at the creature, rather than making an opportunity attack. The creation must have a usage time of 1 action and must target only that creature.

Haki

Haki is a mysterious power that slumbers deep within each living creature. To most people, it is an untapped potential that will never be drawn upon, as very few individuals across the world ever awaken the power within them. Broadly speaking, Haki is not that different from other senses a creature might possess and comes in three distinct types, sometimes referred to as "colors".

Observation Haki (Kenbonshoku). This type of Haki grants a person a sorts of sixth sense, massively increasing their awareness and giving them the ability to pick up on the presence of nearby creatures. When mastered, this type of Haki can even allow creatures to peer moments into the future, giving them an uncanny ability to evade attacks.

Armament Haki (Busoshoku). This type of Haki manifests a person's spirit as an invisible force around their body, protecting them from attacks or empowering their own in the same vein. Armament Haki is one of the only ways to reliably strike and damage Logia-type devil fruit users, and when mastered it allows a person to project their spirit as black armor, coat their weapons to make them stronger and deadlier, and create shockwaves to deflect attacks completely.

Conqueror's Haki (Haoshoku). This type of Haki is exceedingly rare, only appearing in a few individuals over the course of history. Conqueror's Haki is the projection of a person's willpower with such overwhelming force that it can incapacitate weaker beings completely. Conqueror's Haki is unique in that unlike the other two types, it cannot be trained in or forcefully unlocked, but one must possess the innate potential in order to do so.

Learning Haki Feats

Haki feats function similar to normal feats, with a few caveats. The first is that Haki feats are bound to specific character levels, the initial set of Haki feats not being available until a character reaches 8th character level or higher. Similar to feats, Haki feats are an optional choice that can be chosen in place of an Ability Score Improvement feature. However, unlike regular feats, Haki feats can be chosen in pairs of 2 Haki feats per Ability Score Improvement. Alternatively, a player can choose to pick up only one Haki feat when they gain an Ability Score Improvement, and then increase one ability score by 1 point.

Chosing a Haki feat that is a prerequisite for another Haki feat immediately makes you eligible for the latter. For example, you can choose both Basic Armament Haki and Color of Armament Adept at 8th level.

List of Haki Feats

The available Haki feats are listed here in alphabetical order. If a Haki feat has a prerequisite, you must first meet it before being eligible to chose the Haki feat.

Basic Armament Haki

Prerequisites: 8th level

Through grueling challenges and training, you've unlocked the hidden potential sleeping deep within you. You have access to the basic form of Armament Haki.

Enhancement. Any bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage you deal now count as Haki-imbued for the purpose of overcoming immunities and resistances.

Basic Observation Haki

Prerequisites: 8th level

Through grueling challenges and training, you've unlocked the hidden potential sleeping deep within you. You have access to the basic form of Observation Haki, granting you the ability to sense the auras of living creatures.

Sense Presence. You gain a permanent +5 bonus to your passive Perception. As an action, you can focus and become aware of any living creature within 60 feet of you that isn't hidden, and a hidden creature must immediately make a Dexterity (Stealth) check against your passive Perception or be spotted. You instantly learn the size of the creature and how many hit dice it has, but do not learn of its exact location unless you can see it. By concentrating on this effect as if it was a creation, you can expend the radius by 60 feet as an action, increasing the radius by 60 feet per instance up to a maximum of 300 feet.

Color of Armament Adept

Prerequisites: 8th level, Basic Armament Haki

Your specialization into Armament Haki empowers your use of it, granting you the ability to coat yourself in a black sheen that protects like armor. You gain the following benefits.

Hardening. As a reaction when you take damage, you can harden your skin like jetblack armor and grant yourself resistance to all the triggering damage.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a short or long rest.


Color of Armament Journeyman

Prerequisites: 12th level, Color of Armament Adept

As your training with Armament Haki continues, you've learned how to extend your Haki to your weapons, turning the steel jet black and increasing its power immensely. You gain the following benefit.

Imbuement. When you're holding a weapon, you can choose for the weapon to gain a haki-imbued bonus to any attack and damage roll made with it. This bonus equals half your proficiency bonus (rounded down). An imbued weapon additionally scores an automatic critical hit against objects, structures and buildings.

If the weapon already has a bonus to its attack and damage rolls, you can choose to use this bonus if it's higher.

Color of Armament Master

Prerequisites: 16th level, Color of Armament Journeyman

Your training in Armament Haki has reached complete mastery, allowing you to create an invisible barrier around yourself that makes you virtually invulnerable, and strike without touching your enemy, destroying them from within.

Emission. You unconsciously emit an invisible barrier of force around yourself. You have immunity to bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage, including haki-imbued versions, and resistance against all other damage.

Destruction. Your weapon attacks now deal the maximum amount of damage against objects, structures and buildings instead of rolling. Additionally, any bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage you deal treat immunity to these damage types as resistance instead, including immunity gained from the Emission part of this feat.

Color of Observation Adept

Prerequisites: 8th level, Basic Observation Haki

Your specialization with Observation Haki allow you to sense the intent of creatures around you, allowing you to read their movements and evade their attacks.

Sense Intent. You gain a permanent +1 bonus to your AC. As a reaction when you are the target of an attack or an effect that forces you to make a Dexterity saving throw, you can grant yourself a bonus to your AC and all Dexterity saving throws until the end of the turn. The bonus equals your proficiency bonus. You can choose to do this after seeing the attack roll or making the saving throw, but before you know whether you succeeded on the saving throw or not.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a short or long rest.

Color of Observation Journeyman

Prerequisites: 12th level, Color of Observation Adept

Through diligent training with Observation Haki, you've increased the range and precision of it to entirely new levels.

Enhanced Sense Presence. The permanent bonus to your AC increases to +2. You now have advantage on all Wisdom (Insight) and Wisdom (Perception) checks you make while concentrating on Sense Presence. Additionally, you can now shape Sense Presence as a line that is 100 feet long and 10 feet wide that extends from you, rather than a radius around you. On each of your turns, can extend the length of the line by 100 feet, up to a maximum of 1 mile.

Color of Observation Master

Prerequisites: 16th level, Color of Observation Journeyman

Your training in Observation Haki has reached complete mastery, allowing you to see a few seconds into the future through a moment of concentration.

Future Sight. The permanent bonus to your AC increases to +3. As a bonus action on your turn, you can peer into the future. Until the start of the next turn, you have advantage on all attack rolls, saving throws and ability checks, and attacks made against you are made with disadvantage.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and regain all uses when you finish a short or long rest.

Conqueror's Haki

Prerequisites: Special

An optional addition to the Basic Armament Haki and Basic Observation Haki feats, a DM can choose to award this as an additional feat when specific characters learn both of the aforementioned feats. Awakening Conqueror's Haki grants a character access to the following benefits.

Overwhelming Presence. As a bonus action, you can project your willpower in a massive surge that knocks out any lesser creatures instantly. Each creature of your choice within 30 feet must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or become incapacitated for 1 minute. While incapacitated, the creature is unconscious, but wakes up if it suffers any damage. The DC for this saving throw is calculated as 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier. Creatures with a challenge rating equal to your character level divided by 5 (rounded down) automatically fail this saving throw. Creatures that either possess any Haki feat, have a CR rating equal to or higher than half your level, or have equal to or more character levels than you, automatically succeed on this saving throw. Once you use this feature, you cannot do so again until you finish a long rest.

Clash. As a reaction when another creature uses Overwhelming Presence, you can choose to clash with them using your own. If you choose to do so, the radius of both you and your target's Overwhelming Presence increases to 60 feet, and creatures forced to make a saving throw does so at a disadvantage.

Domination. You can use dominate beast at will, using Charisma as your creative ability for this creation unless you have the Creativity feature, in which case you use your creative ability granted by that feature. A creature with a challenge rating equal to your character level divided by 5 (rounded down) automatically fail this saving throw. If you maintain this creation for its entire duration, the beast you targeted becomes friendly to you and your allies, but you no longer have any direct control over it unless you use this feature again.


Conqueror's Haki Mastery

Prerequisites: 16th level, Conqueror's Haki

You've mastered the use of Conqueror's Haki, able to use it in a form that infuse your body and weapons with it. This form of haki can destroy just about anything you strike, and even Armament haki is useless against it.

Infusion. Any bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage you deal ignores a creature's resistance and immunity to those damage types, including those gained from haki feats.

Voice of All Things

Prerequisites: Special

The voice of all things is not technically related to Haki, however it follows a very similar pattern in that only a few individuals ever have the opportunity to unlock it. Dungeon Masters are free to grant this feat to players when they meet the prerequisites for Basic Haki feats. The voice of all things grants you the following benefits.

Universal Language. You have an innate ability to hear the "voice" of animals and inanimate objects, instinctually understanding the meaning behind the sounds and gestures of animals, or any imagery or written language upon an object, including poneglyphs. You gain no additional benefits to communicate back with beasts and objects through this feature, nor any ability to coerce them to communicate with you.

Guidance of the World. Once, you can ask the DM one question relegated to a specific object, place or creature that you are trying to find. The DM then gives you one truthful answer that guides you in the direction of the thing you are looking for. You are not made aware of any dangers waiting on the path, nor does the answer you recieve take into account any changes that might as a result of an action taken by another player or NPC.

Once you use this feature, you cannot do so again until 7 days have passed since you last used it.

Variant Rule: Haki Feats as Rewards

Haki feats are undeniably extremely powerful, and in the world of One Piece, the power of Haki is pretty much a prerequisite to becoming the pirate king. As a dungeon master, decide for yourself whether you want your players to gain Haki feats at their own leisure, spending Ability Score Increase levels to gain them, or whether you would rather hand these feats out to your players as rewards for completing certain narrative beats instead.

Haoshoku Haki: Rare and Powerful

Dungeon Masters should exercise restraint when it comes to allowing Conqueror's Haki feats at the table. Typically, only players who hold the captain or first mate role are eligible for Conqueror's Haki, but it's not a requirement to possess for either role.

Chapter 6: Creation Lists

This chapter describes the most common creations found in the world of One Piece. Creations are synonymous with Spells found in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition, however due to thematics the lists presented here are more limited in scope.

Additionally, creation is a more obtuse term in this setting. It could be an inspiring song played by a bard, an invention created by a gadgeteer, a special kind of ammunition crafted by a marksman or a manifestation of inner power summoned by a vindicator.

Legend. Creations marked with a ^ can be found in Xanathar's Guide to Everything or Tasha's Cauldron of Everything.

(R) Tag means the creation can be used as a routine.

Creations Expanded

In the world of One Piece, fantastical abilities are not unheard of among pirates and marines both. Specific individuals sometimes develop abilities that stand above the norm, allowing them to wield power that sometimes even rival that of Haki itself. These powers are typically referred to as their "creations" in the broadest of terms.

A creation could be anything that holds significantly more power than one might think. A song that inspires people to fight beyond their limits is as much of a creation as a medical drug that boosts performance if the results are the same.

Below follow an expansion on each creativity-using class presented in this document, exploring their particular brand of creativity further.

Bards - Stories to Shape the World

Bards are minstrels and entertainers, acrobats and daredevils who entertain the masses and lift the weary hearts of travelers everywhere. Most if not all pirate ships boast at least one bard on board for very specific reasons.

Not every entertainer is a bard. What sets a bard aside from other entertainers is the way their music seem to touch not only the soul but the bodies of those that listen to their music as well. Bard songs are creations that can seemingly numb pain, hypnotize and mesmerize crowds, and in some extreme cases even manipulate the environment itself.

Gadgeteers - Brains over Brawn

Gadgeteers are inventors and tacticians that build extraordinary contraptions and gadgets to use in combat. They can be anything from an underworld arms dealer to hobby tinkerer to a government-endorsed scientist to a revolutionary commander.

Gadgeteers are set apart from their peers by their ability to create just about anything they can dream. Their creations can be support tools to aid their allies, utilitarian gadgets designed for exploration, or customized weapons of war that spew fire, ice and lightning upon their enemies.

Marksmen - Always Prepared

Marksmen are experts in their field that enhance their uncanny aim with the use of specialized ammunition, gun customizations and easy-to-use gadgets, some of which can be applied to animal companions.

Marksmen split their focus between creativity and combat training, resulting in a smaller arsenal than gadgeteers. Instead, they specialize in creations designed for ease-of-use in battle, such as pop greens and dials, allowing them to rain bullets over large areas, fire incendiary napalm onto enemies or trap them in sticky glue-like tar.


Medics - Miracle Workers

Medics are, as the name suggests, practitioners of the healing arts, but in this practice lies also an intimate knowledge of lethal substances. Most medics often find work as doctors on both pirate and navy ships.

A medic's creations are typically less flashy than their contemporaries: Simple medicinal pills and humble concoctions that bely the great restorative or harmful power that lies within them. Medics use their creations to heal the wounded, empower allies with performance-enhancing medicine, weaken enemies with enfeebling chemicals, and create illusory images from hallucinogenic concoctions.

Paragons - Power from Within

Paragons are extremely rare individuals that have developed fantastical power from within. Most of the time, this power comes as a result of genetic modification or tampering, however sometimes it's simply a manifestation of a person's passion and spirit. Some paragons are seers, capable of peering into the future through the use of paraphernalia such as tarot cards or crystal orbs.

Limited in scope compared to other forms of creativity, paragons do not need gadgets or paraphernalia for their creations, instead it being a power that comes from within. Unlike other creative minds, paragons learn a few specific creations based on what their soul mirrors.

Sages - Mastery of Mind and Body

Sages are the rare few who seek to master not only their physical abilities, but their mind and psyche as well. Through diligent training and devotion to their chosen beliefs, these masters of both physical and spiritual strength can muster the strength and willpower necessary to move oceans with their palms, shatter rocks in a single blow, and inspire their allies to fight beyond their normal limits.

The creations of a sage can typically be divided into two different subgroups: Martial techniques and indomitable words of power. A sage of the ocean domain can wield moisture in the air to create rippling shockwaves, while the mere words from the sages of the dawn domain can seemingly grant their allies a second wind. In some cases, their very spirit can manifest as a spectral force around them, which strike out as shadow figures or spiritual weapons.

Appendix A: Devil Fruits

What are Devil Fruits?

Devil fruits are mystical and mysterious fruits found throughout the world that, when consumed, provide the eater a special ability, depending on the type and variation of the fruit itself. Superficially, they resemble common household fruits at a glance, but a closer look will be able to tell them apart by the strange colorization and eldritch patterns that dot the outer layers of the fruit. The taste is also reportedly abhorrent and offputting, however rarely enough to prevent anyone from actually consuming the devil fruit.

The rarity of devil fruits mean few people outside of the Grand Line have ever seen one, or a devil fruit user at all. Most commoners in the four seas consider these fruits to be mere myth and legend, however as one travels along the Grand Line these powers become all the more apparent and common. Many of the strongest pirates and marine officers have consumed a devil fruit.

Three distinct types of devil fruits exist, ranked most common to rarest: Paramecia, zoan and logia.

A Treasure like no Other

Devil fruits are truly one of a kind, as no single fruit exists in two different instances at any time. However, mystical in nature, once a devil fruit user dies for any reason, the devil fruit they had consumed will soon grow on a fruit tree close to where the previous consumer had died. However, the exact location is always random, meaning that a devil fruit can remain hidden away for decades, possibly even centuries, with noone aware of its existence. The only known documentation of devil fruits is the Devil Fruit Encyclopedia, and its contents are incomplete as only a few listed fruits are given illustrations.

The only true way of learning what powers a specific devil fruit holds is to consume it. A single bite of the fruit is enough to gain its powers, the remainder of the fruit becoming just a normal, if unappetizing, fruit afterwards. Once consumed, the new devil fruit user innately learns the name of the fruit, and the basic properties of the power they have gained.

While the powers granted by a devil fruit cannot be understated, the price to pay for such a boon is a steep one indeed. Said to have been spawned by the devil of the seas, whoever eats a devil fruit forever loses their ability to swim. In a world consisting mostly of expansive seas and oceans, this is a dangerous gambit to risk for the sake of power.

Even so, the lure of the devil fruits remain extremely strong with all who desire power or freedom, so much that the rarest and most powerful devil fruits can sell for as much as 5 000 000 000 beri, more than ten times as much as a galleon warship.


Hated by the Sea

It is said that the sea itself hates devil fruit users, which is why all of them without fault lose the ability to swim. More than that, they become entirely incapacitated when submerged in water, meaning a single unfortunate drop could spell the definite end of a devil fruit user, no matter how powerful. Even a casual dip in running water saps the strength of a devil fruit user, leaving them weak and lethargic.

Special types of minerals, known as sea-prism stone or simply seastone, also generate a similar "energy" to the ocean. Much like running water, contact with these stones sap the strength from devil fruit users and prevent them from using their powers. The mining and distribution of sea-prism stone is a tightly guarded secret by the world government.

Awakening the Power

Beyond the obvious boons granted by a devil fruit, the powers they contain also grows and change with the fruit user. The same devil fruit could be harmless in the hands of a bumbling farmer and devastating in the hands of an ambitious pirate.

A lot of devil fruits, paramecia type ones especially, rely on the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the user. Beyond mere training and application with a fruit's power however is the ability to "awaken" the power within them. When this happens, the fruit's powers grow beyond the user itself. Awakening manifests differently in different types of fruits: Paramecia fruits gain the ability to affect their surroundings, while zoan fruits instead only gain massively increased physical attributes.

Only a few devil fruit users ever manage to awaken their power, making any documentation on the true extent of awakened power scarce and unavailable. Few people have ever heard of devil fruits, so the number of people aware of awakening are even less commonplace in the world.

The Rarity of Devil Fruits

Devil fruits are incredibly rare and valuable, a fact that shouldn't be taken lightly. Anyone who eats a devil fruit is practically destined to take to the seas and make a name for themselves. The journey to find a devil fruit could be an entire adventure in and of itself.

A DM should exercise caution in allowing devil fruits in their campaign. While they are an intrinsic part of One Piece, their powers can easily schew the game in favor of the players. Paramecia and zoan type fruits are less egregious of an example depending on their subtype, however logia type devil fruits should not be made available to players until they reach 8th level and gain accesss to Haki feats, to balance the damage immunities that come with logia fruits.

Creating a Devil Fruit

A devil fruit functions similar to a consumable magic item found in standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition, with a noticable difference: Once a devil fruit is consumed, the effects and its curse are both permanent on the consumer, and these powers can grow as the creature gains power and uses its fruit abilities.

Due to the infinite possibilities for creating devil fruits, dungeon masters and players may work together to design them from whatever concept they might have. A few examples will be given in this document, as well as general guidelines on creating and designing devil fruits.

Conceptual Design

The first step to designing a devil fruit is to determine what kind of powers it bestows upon the eater, and what kind of devil fruit these powers are best represented by. For example, the flare-flare fruit transforms the wielder into living fire, able to not only generate powerful flame bursts but also turn into fire to avoid physical attacks.

Devil fruits come in three distinct types determined by the nature of the powers they bestow upon the eater, each fruit falling into one of these categories.

Paramecia

Paramecia type fruits are most common and the broadest categorization of devil fruits, as it entails all forms of superhuman abilities and traits, both physical and mental. Some paramecia devil fruits allow the user to transform their body into different substances, such as rubber or blades. Other paramecia devil fruits allow the user to create specific substances such as wax or soap, or a force like shockwaves or magnetism. When a devil fruit cannot be classified as a logia or zoan type, it is a paramecia type.

While some paramecia fruits allow the user to transform parts or even their whole body, they do not infer the same immunities to damage that logia fruits do. The same goes for paramecia fruits that allow the user to generate a substance, but not transform into it.

Zoan

Zoan type fruits are a lot more straight-forwards than paramecia or logia type fruits, as they all follow the same formula. All zoan type fruits grants the user the ability to shapeshift into the form of a specific animal alongside any boons such an animal might have, or take on the appearence of a hybrid between their humanoid and bestial form. In beast form, a zoan type inherits all the strengths and weaknesses of the animal side, while in hybrid form they mix the power of their bestial side with the bipedal form of their human side.

Variations of the same type of animal exist within each fruit subtype. For example, the cat cat fruit exists in multiple versions, from leopard to lion to cheetah to common calico housecats. Each such zoan type is a unique fruit, and several subtypes can exist at the same time.

Typically, only normal animals are represented in zoan type fruits, however there exists two distinct and extremely rare variants of zoan fruits, known as ancient and mythical zoan fruits. The former lets the user transform into extinct races such as dinosaurs, while the latter lets them take on the shape of mythical beasts such as the dragon or the phoenix.

A curious case with zoan type devil fruits is the ability to "feed" them to inanimate objects, such as weapons or teapots, creating animal-object hybrids with sentience. The exact process is currently unknown and was developed by world goverment scientists, however it is a widespread enough practice to appear across the Grand Line, though in a very limited scope.

Logia

The logia type is characterized by giving its user the ability to become, create, and control an element or force of nature. If all three of these requirements are not met, then the devil fruit cannot be classified as a logia type. Devil fruits that allow the user to create and control poison, wax, or any other substance that do not allow the user's body itself to transform into that element itself are classified under paramecia. Likewise if the devil fruit changes the properties of the user's body to a specific element but doesn't allow for the creation and manipulation of similar elements, a fruit is also classified as paramecia over logia.

The most powerful ability of a logia fruit is the power of intangibility and reformation. As logia user can transform completely into the element of their devil fruit, they become almost invulnerable to most conventional forms of damage. Even if their element is a typical solid, like steel or diamond, they can still reform if broken apart. Even decapitation or other forms of limb loss are inconsequential setbacks at best to logia fruit users.

The only way to directly harm a logia fruit user is to either find an element that directly opposes or overpowers their's, such as water opposing sand or magma burning hotter than fire, or by using armament haki which is extremely rare outside of the New World. The opposite weakness is the most common and accessible way of battling logia fruit users, if one can only figure out what it is. Additionally, logia fruit users still lose the ability to act or transform while submerged in water, like all other forms of devil fruit users.

Logia fruits are thus rightfully considered the most powerful of all devil fruits, and a single logia fruit user can easily overpower scores of common soldiers without effort.

Devil Fruit Power Levels

Devil fruits are greatly varied in the level of power they bestow upon the eater, with some being considered weaker while others are so powerful that legends surround them.

As a rule of thumb, Paramecia are considered the weakest, while Logia and Mythological Zoan fruits are considered the absolutely strongest. As a result, the latter are powers that, if made readily available in low-tier games, could dramatically shift the power dynamic of a group, and DMs should exercise caution in handing these types of devil fruits out to players.

Mechanical Design

Once you have decided on a concept and type for a devil fruit, it's time to determine what powers it is capable of and how the fruit's powers can be progressed as you play the game.

Determining Devil Fruit Ability

Devil fruits are widely varied in powers and abilities. Some rely heavily on the wielder's physical strength and speed, while others allow the projection of energies completely unrelated to the eater's body. When creating a devil fruit, follow these guidelines for determining the options available for choice as a Devil Fruit Ability.

Physically Dependant Devil Fruits. Devil fruits that grant abilities that are heavily dependant on physical ability, such as strength, power, skill or aim, should have the option of using either Strength, Dexterity or Constitution as its devil fruit ability. Some paramecia and most all zoan fruits fall under this category.

Example Fruits - Dice-dice fruit, spike-spike fruit, cat-cat fruits, dog-dog fruits


Physically Independant Devil Fruits. Devil fruits that grants abilities that project energy from the body or create effects independant of the user, such as energy projection or object creation, should have the option of using either Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma as its devil fruit ability. Some paramecia, mythological zoan and all logia fruits fall under this category.

Example Fruits - Op-op fruit, slow-slow fruit, flare-flare fruit, bird-bird fruit model: Phoenix


General Design Guidelines

While devil fruits vary greatly in both power and abilities, there exist some common traits between all fruits as well as mechanical effects that exist to create a level playing field. Below will follow a few guidelines DMs can use when creating their own devil fruits.

At-will Powers and Limited Powers

When designing a devil fruit, it is important to consider the power level of the fruit's abilities relative to the overall power level of the player characters in the game. While devil fruits are definitely meant to be a boost in power, they're not meant to completely break game balance.

When designing a devil fruit, consider what aspects of the represented fruit you want the player to have access to at any time, and what aspects should be limited to a few times per day. At will powers might be modest while a character only has access to the dormant powers of the fruit, but may grow stronger as they gain access to the stirring and awakened powers.

As an example, the flare-flare fruit in its dormant state might give access to tricks such as fire bolt or control flames at will, but not higher level creations. Once a player gains access to the stirring powers, they might be able to use the burning hands creation at 1st level without expending any resources.

In order to balance accessibility to powerful abilities, a DM can choose to add charges to a devil fruit, which are then used to fuel certain abilities that the fruit grants access to such as certain creations or similar abilities. The fruit typically regains all expended charges at dawn, and the number of charges should be determined by the fruit's progressed state:

  • In its Dormant state, the fruit should have 7 charges.
  • In its Stirring state, the fruit should have 14 charges.
  • In its Awakened state, the fruit should have 20 charges.
Common Powers

While each devil fruit is practically unique in its powers, how these powers manifest in terms of mechanical benefits do see some common traits shared between each devil fruit. This is primarily the case for zoan and logia type fruits.

Zoan Type Shared Powers. All zoan type fruits allow the consumer to transform into an animal form or a hybrid form, or back into their normal form, as a bonus action on its turn. Additionally, zoan type fruits also enhance the durability of the user, which is represented by an increase to their hit points:

  • Regular Zoan type fruits increase the consumer's current and maximum hit points by an amount equal to its level upon consumption, and increases its hit points by an additional 1 point for each level gained afterwards.
  • Mythical Zoan type fruits increase the consumer's current and maximum hit points by an amount equal to twice its level upon consumption, and increases its hit points by an additional 2 points for each level gained afterwards.
  • Ancient Zoan type fruits increase the consumer's current and maximum hit points by an amount equal to three times its level upon consumption, and increases its hit points by an additional 3 point for each level gained afterwards.

Lastly, specifically while in beast form, the transformation has the following rules for player characters:

  • Your game statistics are replaced by the statistics⁠ of a beast, but you retain your alignment, personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. You also retain all of your skill and saving throw proficiencies, in addition to gaining those of the creature. If the creature has the same proficiency as you and the bonus in its stat block is higher than yours, use the creature’s bonus instead of yours.
  • You retain your current hit points and hit point maximum instead of adopting the beast's hit points and hit points maximum. You do not revert to your normal form if you're reduced to 0 hit points, and you make death saving throws as normal.
  • You cannot use creations while transformed, however you can still speak and communicate as normal. This doesn't break the concentration on creations you have active, however, or prevent you from taking actions that are part of a creation, such as call lightning, that you’ve already used.
  • You retain the benefits of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can’t use any of your special⁠ senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.
  • You choose whether your equipment falls to the ground in your space, merges into your new form, or is worn by it. Worn equipment⁠ functions as normal, but the DM decides whether it is practical for the new form to wear a piece of equipment, based on the creature’s shape and size. Your equipment⁠ doesn’t change size or shape to match the new form, and any equipment⁠ that the new form can’t wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment⁠ that merges with the form has no effect until you leave the form.

Additionally, once a zoan type fruit user awakens the power of the fruit, it can enter an awakened hybrid form, gaining a massive increase in power and durability at the cost of accumulating exhaustion.

  • While in awakened form, your size becomes large as your height doubles and your weight quadruples, and you have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
  • You regain a number of hit points equal to 5 + your Constitution modifier at the start of your turn as long as you have half your hit points remaining or less. You do not regain hit points like this if you have 0 hit points.
  • You have advantage on death saving throws. Additionally when you are stabilized, you regain 1 hit point.
  • When the awakened form ends, you gain one level of exhaustion. You gain one additional level of exhaustion for every 10 minutes you spent in this form without transforming back.

Logia Type Shared Powers. All logia type devil fruits are exceedingly powerful, granting the user complete immunity to most all forms of damage, with a few exceptions. Many logia fruits also have a specific weakness, which can be used to temporarily negate their damage immunities:

  • You gain immunity to all forms of damage except haki-imbued bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage, as well as psychic damage.
  • You are immune to the grappled and restrained conditions, unless the creature grappling or restraining you possess a haki feat or trait. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws against poison and disease.
  • You can use an action on your turn to fully transform into an elemental state. During this state, the only actions you can take are the Dash, Disengage, Dodge, Hide or Search actions, and you can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch in diameter without squeezing as well as through a space occupied by a hostile creature. You can return to your normal form as a bonus action on your turn.
  • If you come in contact with sea stone prism, or are subjected to the fruit's weakness, you lose access to all damage and condition immunities provided by this fruit until the end of your next turn. If you were in elemental form when this happened, you immediately transform back to your normal form.

The Curse of the Devil Fruits

The one common denominator between all devil fruits is the curse they bestow upon whoever eats them, forever robbing the consumer of its ability to swim. When you eat a devil fruit, you permanently gain the following negative effects:

  • You permanently lose any swimming speed you have, and cannot benefit from any creation or effect that would grant you a swimming speed.
  • If you're partially submerged in running water or come into contact with sea-prism stone, you suffer disadvantage on all attack rolls and ability checks until contact is broken, and for the duration your speed is halved. Additionally, you must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become incapacitated for the duration. You can repeat this saving throw at most once every hour, ending the incapacitated effect on a successful save.
  • If completely submerged in water, you become paralyzed until removed from the water, in addition to suffering all the penalties for partial submersion.

Progression Path

Devil fruits are powerful boons, however their power is not immediately realized upon first consumption. Only those who actively seek to grow stronger and learn how to wield their power can truly unlock the power of a devil fruit.

Devil fruits have three distinct stages: Dormant, stirring and awakened. When first consumed, the devil fruits bestows the abilities upon the consumer listed under its Dormant Powers, and the player can then unlock the fruit's Stirring Powers and Awakened Powers as they progress through the game, at their DM's discretion.

When creating a devil fruit, the DM should decide on a progression path for how a player could unlock the Stirring Powers and Awakened Powers of the devil fruit, according to the pace and design of their game. Below are but a few examples of how a dungeon master could go about to create a progression path.

Remember Rule 0. Ultimately, the DM has the final say in when a character can progress the power of their devil fruit.

Milestone

When playing with milestone, emphasis is often placed on specific story beats to progress a character's level and thus power. This is the simplest way to handle the progression of a devil fruit's power, placing the power in the DM's hand.

Milestone progression can naturally coincide with character level progression, but depending on the pace of the campaign and the level at which a character attains a devil fruit, this isn't a set rule. Milestone progression is the easiest to balance against the progression of a group as a whole, as the increase in power of the fruit user can then coincide with an increase in power for other players through different means, such as finding powerful items or gaining other forms of boons, such as feats.

Lastly, milestone progression could also involve overcoming a set number of high CR challenges, or even defeating a specific enemy.

Character Level

This option is well-suited when players gain access to devil fruits early in a campaign's lifetime, around tier 1 (1st-4th level) or tier 2 (5th-10th level) levels of play.

If using this option, it is suggested that a player is allowed to gain the Stirring Powers at around 8th character level at the earliest, and around 12th character level at the latest. Beyond that, it is suggested that the Awakened Powers could be accessed around 13th level at the earliest, and around 17th level at the latest.

Experience Points

When playing with experience points, you can opt to set a specific number of experience points required to progress the fruit from one state to another, similar to advancement in character level. When playing with this rule, the player does not need to split any experience points gained between character and fruit progression: Any experience points the player gains count for both types of progression.

See the Chapter 1 of the Player's Handbook (Beyond 1st level, pg. 15) for more information about experience points threshold necessary for character advancement. When setting the threshold for devil fruit progression, it pays to keep in mind the amount of experience necessary to advance from one level to another.

The DM decides whether experience points accumulated before consumption of the devil fruit will count towards the devil fruit progression or not.

Example Paramecia: Lock-Lock Fruit

Paramecia Devil Fruit (Consumable)

This strange-looking fruit is about the size of an oversized pear, though bright teal in color with eldritch swirls starting at the top and forming into spirals at the bottom.

The lock lock fruit is a devil fruit that allows the user to "lock" any mechanism that can naturally be opened or closed, such as doors, chests or windows. However, this ability also extends to more diffuse examples of what can be opened or closed, such as a person's eyelids or a bleeding wound. As the consumer learns how to use their powers, they eventually learn how to suspend items in the air by "locking" them in place, and when their power awakens they can affect a wide area without touching it.

As an action on your turn, you can take a bite out of this devil fruit. Doing so permanently grants you access to the effects listed under the fruit's Dormant Powers, as well as the fruit's curse. This effect cannot be reversed or removed in any way.

Devil Fruit Ability. When you consume the devil fruit, you choose one ability score from Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma to be your devil fruit ability. If an effect of this fruit allows you to make a creative attack or forces a creature to make a saving throw, use the following formulas to determine your attack modifier and save DC:

Fruit Attack Modifier = Your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Fruit Save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Dormant Powers

These powers are automatically gained when you consume the devil fruit. The devil fruit has 7 charges and regains all charges at dawn.

Creations. You can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components. If the creation has a range other than touch, it has a range of touch for you: Blindness deafness (2 charges) or cure wounds (1 charge per creation level, up to 3rd).

Lock Star. As a bonus action, you can touch a door, chest or similar object and instantly lock it until the end of your next turn. If the object already has a mechanical lock, it instead becomes locked until someone unlocks it again. When you lock an object this way, you can spend 1 charge to lock it for up to 1 minute instead, or until you undo the lock as a bonus action. An object locked this way cannot be opened by normal means, creations or lockpicking. A creature can make a Strength check against your fruit save DC as an action on its turn, breaking the lock on a successful check.

Alternatively, you can touch a locked object and make an ability check against the lock's DC using your Fruit Ability modifier, adding double your proficiency bonus to the check. On a successful check, you unlock the object.

Stirring Powers

Once the powers of your devil fruit begin to stir, the maximum number of charges increases to 14 and you gain the following additional benefits:

Creations. You can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components. If the creation has a range other than touch, it has a range of touch for you: Blindness deafness (2 charges), cure wounds (1 charge per creation level, up to 5th), hold monster (5 charges) or hold person (2 charges).

Greater Lock Star. Lock Star now lasts for 1 minute even if you do not spend a charge on using it. When you spend 1 charge on Lock Star, the duration increases to up to 10 minutes.

Additionally, you now have advantage on ability checks to open locked object.

Suspend Object. You can now use the power of the lock-lock fruit to "lock" objects in place, preventing them from moving. As an action on your turn, you can touch a large or smaller object and spend 1 charge to suspend it in place for up to 10 minutes, or until you lose concentration (as if concentrating on a creation). If the object is being worn or carried by another creature, the creature can make a Dexterity saving throw against your fruit save DC to avoid this effect.

You can also do this as a reaction when an object that isn't being worn or carried comes within 5 feet of you, for example if the object was falling.

While an object remains suspended, it cannot move from its current position. A creature within 5 feet of a suspended object can attempt to break the suspension by making a Strength check against your fruit save DC as an action on its turn, and on a successful check the suspension ends.

Awakened Powers

Once you have awakened the powers of your devil fruit, the maximum number of charges increases to 20, and you gain the following additional benefits:

Creations. You can now use blindness deafness and hold person at will, without expending charges. Additionally, you can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components: Cure wounds (1 charge per creation level, up to 5th), heal (6 charges), hold monster (5 charges), mass cure wounds (5 charges) or shield (1 charge).

Master Lock Star. The range of Lock Star increases to 60 feet, and when you use it, you can target a number of objects up to your proficiency bonus instead of just one when you take this bonus action. Additionally, Lock Star now lasts for 10 minutes even if you do not spend a charge on using it. When you spend 1 charge on Lock Star, the duration increases to up to 1 hour.

Additionally, you now automatically succeed on all ability checks made to unlock object locked by mundane means. If the object is locked with a creation you must still succeed on an ability check to unlock it.

Suspend Creature. The range of Suspend Object increases to 60 feet, and when you use it, you can target a number of objects up to your proficiency bonus instead of just one when you take this action or reaction. Alternatively, you can target large or smaller creatures to subject to this effect instead. An unwilling creature can make a Strength saving throw against your fruit save DC, and on a failed save it becomes incapacitated for the duration. While incapacitated this way, a creature's speed is 0, it cannot benefit from any bonuses to its speed, and if it was falling when coming under this effect, it stops falling and hovers in place while incapacitated this way. A creature can repeat this saving throw at the end of its subsequent turns, ending the incapacitated effect on a successful save.

Additionally, as a bonus action on each of your turns, you can target one suspended object or creature you can see and move it up to 30 feet in any direction.

Curse

When you eat a devil fruit, you permanently gain the following negative effects:

  • You permanently lose any swimming speed you have, and cannot benefit from any creation or effect that would grant you a swimming speed.
  • If you're partially submerged in running water or come into contact with sea-prism stone, you suffer disadvantage on all attack rolls and ability checks until contact is broken, and for the duration your speed is halved. Additionally, you must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become incapacitated for the duration. You can repeat this saving throw at most once every hour, ending the incapacitated effect on a successful save.
  • If completely submerged in water, you become paralyzed until removed from the water, in addition to suffering all the penalties for partial submersion.

Example Zoan: Cat-Cat Fruit ─ Model: Tiger

Zoan Devil Fruit (Consumable)

This strange-looking fruit is about the size of an oversized peach, though stark orange in color covered with thin, black swirls.

The Cat-Cat Fruit ─ Model: Tiger allows the user to not only take on the form of a ferocious tiger, but also a very potent hybrid of man and beast. The tiger is the undisputed champion of the deep jungles; an apex predator with immense strength and ferocity. Among the cat-cat fruits, this one is rumoured to host the most raw strength of them all.

As an action on your turn, you can take a bite out of this devil fruit. Doing so permanently grants you access to the effects listed under the fruit's Dormant Powers, as well as the fruit's curse. This effect cannot be reversed or removed in any way.

Devil Fruit Ability. When you consume the devil fruit, you choose one ability score from Strength, Dexterity or Constitution to be your devil fruit ability. If an effect of this fruit allows you to make a creative attack or forces a creature to make a saving throw, use the following formulas to determine your attack modifier and save DC:

Fruit Attack Modifier = Your proficiency bonus + your Strength, Dexterity or Constitution modifier

Fruit Save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength, Dexterity or Constitution modifier

Dormant Powers

These powers are automatically gained when you consume the devil fruit.

Zoan Durability. Immediately when you eat this fruit, your current hit points and hit point maximum permanently increase by a number equal to your level, and increases by an additional 1 hit point each time you gain a character level.

Zoan Transformation. As a bonus action on your turn, you can transform into a zoan or hybrid form, or back to your normal form.

Zoan Form. When you're transformed into your zoan form, you take the form of a tiger, and the following rules apply to you.

  • Your game statistics are replaced by the statistics⁠ of a tiger (Pg. 339 of the Monster Manual), but you retain your alignment, personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. You also retain all of your skill and saving throw proficiencies, in addition to gaining those of the creature. If the creature has the same proficiency as you and the bonus in its stat block is higher than yours, use the creature’s bonus instead of yours.
  • You retain your current hit points and hit point maximum instead of adopting the tiger's hit points and hit points maximum. You do not revert to your normal form if you're reduced to 0 hit points, and you make death saving throws as normal.
  • You cannot use creations while transformed, however you can still speak and communicate as normal. This doesn't break the concentration on creations you have active, however, or prevent you from taking actions that are part of a creation, such as call lightning, that you’ve already used.
  • You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can’t use any of your special⁠ senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.
  • You choose whether your equipment falls to the ground in your space, merges into your new form, or is worn by it. Worn equipment⁠ functions as normal, but the DM decides whether it is practical for the new form to wear a piece of equipment, based on the creature’s shape and size. Your equipment⁠ doesn’t change size or shape to match the new form, and any equipment⁠ that the new form can’t wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment⁠ that merges with the form has no effect until you leave the form.

Hybrid Form. When you're transformed into your hybrid form, you take the form of a hulking mix of tiger and man, and the following rules apply to you.

  • Your Strength score is set to 17, and your Dexterity score is set to 15, unless they're already higher.
  • Your creature type is both humanoid and beast, and you have advantage on saving throws against creations that affect only one of the two creature types, such as hold person.
  • You have darkvision out to 60 feet, and advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks reliant on smell.
  • You gain sharp claws and teeth that can be used as natural weapons. You add your fruit ability modifier to the attack and damage rolls of these natural weapons. Your claws deal 1d8 slashing damage instead of the normal damage of unarmed strikes, and your bite deals 1d10 piercing damage.

Stirring Powers

Once the powers of your devil fruit begin to stir, you gain the following additional benefits:

Enhanced Forms. You gain the following benefits in both zoan form and hybrid form:

  • Your Strength score is set to 21, and your Dexterity score is set to 19, unless they're already higher.
  • You have a climbing speed equal to your walking speed.
  • You can take the Dash, Disengage, Hide or Search action as a bonus action.
  • If you take the Attack action on your turn and attack with either your bite or your claws, you can then make one additional attack with your claws as part of the Attack action.

Awakened Powers

Once you have awakened the powers of your devil fruit, you gain the following additional benefits:

Awakened Form. When you take on your hybrid form, you can choose to enter an awakened form instead:


  • Your Strength score is set to 25, and your Dexterity score is set to 23, unless they're already higher.
  • While in hybrid form, your size becomes large as your height doubles and your weight quadruples, and you have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
  • You regain a number of hit points equal to 5 + your Constitution modifier at the start of your turn as long as you have half your hit points remaining or less. You do not regain hit points like this if you have 0 hit points.
  • You have advantage on death saving throws. Additionally when you are stabilized, you regain 1 hit point.
  • When the awakened form ends, you gain one level of exhaustion. You gain one additional level of exhaustion for every 10 minutes you spent in this form without transforming back.

Curse

When you eat a devil fruit, you permanently gain the following negative effects:

  • You permanently lose any swimming speed you have, and cannot benefit from any creation or effect that would grant you a swimming speed.
  • If you're partially submerged in running water or come into contact with sea-prism stone, you suffer disadvantage on all attack rolls and ability checks until contact is broken, and for the duration your speed is halved. Additionally, you must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become incapacitated for the duration. You can repeat this saving throw at most once every hour, ending the incapacitated effect on a successful save.
  • If completely submerged in water, you become paralyzed until removed from the water, in addition to suffering all the penalties for partial submersion.

Example Logia Fruit: Acid-Acid Fruit

Logia Devil Fruit (Consumable)

This strange-looking fruit is about the size of an oversized pineapple, with a jagged shell of black covered with green swirls, and an acrid greenish-yellow fruity center.

The Acid-Acid fruit transforms the eater into an acid human, able to seemingly melt into corrosive acid and reform back at their leisure. As with all logia fruits, this imbues the eater with practical invulnerability against conventional weapons, though the acid-acid fruit is even worse in that regard, as it's potent enough to eat through iron and steel.

As an action on your turn, you can take a bite out of this devil fruit. Doing so permanently grants you access to the effects listed under the fruit's Dormant Powers, as well as the fruit's curse. This effect cannot be reversed or removed in any way.

Devil Fruit Ability. When you consume the devil fruit, you choose one ability score from Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma to be your devil fruit ability. If an effect of this fruit allows you to make a creative attack or forces a creature to make a saving throw, use the following formulas to determine your attack modifier and save DC:

Fruit Attack Modifier = Your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Fruit Save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Dormant Powers

These powers are automatically gained when you consume the devil fruit. The devil fruit has 7 charges and regains all charges at dawn.

Acerbic Body. You can use your acid form to attack enemies. You have a natural weapon in the form of acid that you can use to make unarmed strikes with. Its damage die is a d6, its damage type is acid, and it has a reach of 10 feet. You can use your fruit ability modifier, rather than Strength, for the attack and damage rolls with this natural weapon. Additionally, you add your fruit ability modifier to any Strength (Athletics) check you make to grapple or shove a creature, and as a bonus action on your turn while you are grappling a creature, you can deal 1d6 acid damage to it.

Creations. You can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components: Acid splash (at will), grease (1 charge), Melf's acid arrow (2 charges), or Tasha's caustic brew (1 charge).

Logia Intangibility. You gain all of the following benefits:

  • You gain immunity to all forms of damage except haki-imbued bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage, as well as lightning and psychic damage.
  • You are immune to the grappled and restrained conditions, unless the creature grappling or restraining you possess a haki feat or trait. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws against poison and disease.
  • You can use an action on your turn to fully transform into an elemental state. During this state, the only actions you can take are the Dash, Disengage, Dodge, Hide or Search actions, and you can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch in diameter without squeezing as well as through a space occupied by a hostile creature. You can return to your normal form as a bonus action on your turn.
  • If you come in contact with sea stone prism, or are subjected to the fruit's weakness, you lose access to all damage and condition immunities provided by this fruit until the end of your next turn. If you were in elemental form when this happened, you immediately transform back to your normal form.

Weakness to Lightning. Electricity is anathema to you, as enough electrical charge can change the chemical structure of your acidic body and render it harmless. If you suffer 10 or more lightning damage in one round, you lose all damage immunities provided by your Logia Intangibility as well as the effects of Acerbic Body, and you cannot use any creations granted by this fruit. All of these effects last until the end of your next turn.

Stirring Powers

Once the powers of your devil fruit begin to stir, the maximum number of charges increases to 14 and you gain the following additional benefits:

Acerbic Body Improvement. The damage of all your Acerbic Body effects increases to 2d6 instead of 1d6. Additionally, your acid is now potent enough to wear down enemy equipment. When a creature hits you with a melee weapon attack using a non-imbued weapon, the weapon gains a permanent -1 penalty to attack and damage rolls. If the attack was a ranged attack using non-imbued ammunition, the ammunition is destroyed.

Additionally, when you use a bonus action to deal acid damage to a creature you are grappling and it's wearing non-imbued armor, that armor's bonus to AC is permanently reduced by -1. On a successful check, the creature suffers half this damage and its armor isn't corroded.

This penalty to weapons and armor is cumulative, and if it reaches -5 the item is destroyed beyond repair. A creature can repair a penalized weapon or set of armor by making a DC 10 + your fruit ability modifier Smith's Tools check over the course of 10 minutes, restoring the weapon or armor to normal on a successful check.

Creations. You can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components: Acid splash (at will), grease (at will), Melf's acid arrow (2 charges, plus 1 charge per level after 2nd, up to 4th), Tasha's caustic brew (1 charge per level, up to 4th), or vitriolic sphere (4 charges).

When you use grease with your devil fruit ability, it gains corrosive qualities. The grease created by the creation now corrodes any vegetative material in contact with it that isn't being worn or carried. At the start of your turn, the grease corrodes through 2 feet of wood, 1 foot of stone or ½ inch of common metal. Additionally, a creature that ends its turn in the grease suffers 1d6 acid damage.

Weakness to Lightning. You now only suffer the negative effects of Weakness to Lightning if you suffer 15 or more lightning damage in one turn.

Awakened Powers

Once you have awakened the powers of your devil fruit, the maximum number of charges increases to 20, and you gain the following additional benefits:

Acerbic Body Improvement. The damage of all your Acerbic Body effects increases to 4d6 instead of 2d6.

Creations. You can expend charges to use the following creations, using your devil fruit ability as your creative ability for them and requiring no material components: Acid splash (at will), grease (at will), Melf's acid arrow (2 charges, plus 1 charge per level after 2nd, up to 6th), Tasha's caustic brew (1 charge per level, up to 6th), or vitriolic sphere (4 charges, plus one charge per level after 4th, up to 6th).

Additionally, when you use grease, you can create up to two separate 10-foot squares within range. The two squares need not be contiguous with eachother.

Logia Avoidance. You can twist your liquid body to avoid attacks. When a creature targets you with an attack, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. If you have already used your reaction this round, you can spend 2 charges to use this reaction anyways. You can still only take one reaction per turn.

Weakness to Lightning. You now only suffer the negative effects of Weakness to Lightning if you suffer 25 or more lightning damage in one turn.

Curse

When you eat a devil fruit, you permanently gain the following negative effects:

  • You permanently lose any swimming speed you have, and cannot benefit from any creation or effect that would grant you a swimming speed.
  • If you're partially submerged in running water or come into contact with sea-prism stone, you suffer disadvantage on all attack rolls and ability checks until contact is broken, and for the duration your speed is halved. Additionally, you must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become incapacitated for the duration. You can repeat this saving throw at most once every hour, ending the incapacitated effect on a successful save.
  • If completely submerged in water, you become paralyzed until removed from the water, in addition to suffering all the penalties for partial submersion.

Example Mythological Zoan Fruit: Human-Human Fruit ─ Model: Dryad

Zoan Devil Fruit (Consumable)

This strange-looking fruit is about the size of an oversized pair of cherries connected by a golden stalk. The cherries have a mint color and are covered in thin, black swirls.

This fruit allows the user to transform into a dryad: A humanoid being made not from flesh and blood, but leaf and tree. The user gains control over plants and trees, able to summon roots to bind their enemies or vines to whip them.

As dryads of legend are exclusively female spirits possessing great beauty, the fruit's zoan form is always that of a woman. If the fruit user is a man, the hybrid form takes on an androgynous appearence, while if the user is a woman it enhances her feminine characteristics further. Due to this peculiar nature, the fruit is highly sought after by the Kamabakka kingdom.

As an action on your turn, you can take a bite out of this devil fruit. Doing so permanently grants you access to the effects listed under the fruit's Dormant Powers, as well as the fruit's curse. This effect cannot be reversed or removed in any way.

Devil Fruit Ability. When you consume the devil fruit, you choose one ability score from Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma to be your devil fruit ability. If an effect of this fruit allows you to make a creative attack or forces a creature to make a saving throw, use the following formulas to determine your attack modifier and save DC:

Fruit Attack Modifier = Your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Fruit Save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma modifier

Dormant Powers

These powers are automatically gained when you consume the devil fruit. The devil fruit has 7 charges and regains all charges at dawn.

Zoan Durability. Immediately when you eat this fruit, your current hit points and hit point maximum permanently increase by a number equal to twice your level, and increases by an additional 2 hit points each time you gain a character level.

Zoan Transformation. As a bonus action on your turn, you can transform into a zoan or hybrid form, or back to your normal form.

  • Your armor class is set to 16 and cannot be lower for the duration. You can gain the benefits of an equipped shield in addition to this bonus, but not armor.
