Undead Bloodsucker

Your creature type changes from humanoid to undead. You still benefit from any racial traits or abilities you have. You gain resistance to necrotic damage, and you gain darkvision out to 60 ft. If you already have darkvision, its range increases to 120 ft. You don't need to eat, drink, or sleep, instead drinking 1 vial worth of blood per day for sustanence. Using your blood drain is also sufficient sustanence.

You have no reflection in a mirror. You are immune to disease. When you aren't wearing armor or holding a shield, your AC equals 12 + your Dexterity modifier.

Additionally, you have fangs. Your fangs are natural weapons, which you can use to make unarmed strikes. If you hit with them, you deal piercing damage equal to 1d4 + your Strength modifier, instead of the bludgeoning damage normal for an unarmed strike.

Vampire Weaknesses

As you delve deeper into vampirism, you inherit the weaknesses of vampires.

Forbiddance. You cannot enter a residence without invitation from one of its occupants.

Garlic & Holy Adversity. You sense the presence of garlic or holy items within 30 feet of you. You cannot willingly end your turn within 5 feet of such objects.

Harmed by Running Water. Starting at 5th level, you take acid damage equal to your vampire level when you end your turn in running water.

Sunlight Hypersensitivity. You have disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks while in direct sunlight. Starting at 5th level, you take radiant damage equal to your vampire level when you end your turn in direct sunlight. The effects of this feature can be ignored if you protect yourself from the sun in some way (a large brimmed hat for example).

Stake to the Heart. Starting at 5th level, if a piercing weapon made of wood is driven into your heart while you are incapacitated, you are paralyzed until the stake is removed.

Spider Climb

You can climb on difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Blood Drain

As an action, you can expend one of your Vampiric Dice to bite an incapacitated creature, a fresh corpse, or a willing target, drinking their blood and healing yourself. Roll your Vampiric Dice to determine the number of hit points healed. The creature takes necrotic damage equal to the number of hit points you healed. This feature has no effect on creatures that have no blood.

Sanguine Strike

Starting at 2nd level, when you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack or unarmed strike, you may expend one Vampiric Die to deal additional necrotic damage to the target. The additional damage equals the amount rolled on your Vampiric Die. When you use this feature, you regain a humber of hit points equal to your vampire level plus your Charisma modifier.

Vampiric Charm

Starting at 2nd level, you may expend one of your Vampiric Dice to attempt to charm a humanoid that you can see within 30 feet. The target must make a Wisdom saving throw or become charmed by you.

The charmed target regards you as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn't under your control, they take your requests or actions in the most favorable way they can, and are a willing target for your blood drain.

Each time you or your companions do something harmful to the target, they can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on a success. Otherwise, the effect lasts 24 hours, or until you die, are another plane of existence than the target, or end the effect as a bonus action. You can only have 1 charmed target at a time. If you charm a new target, the effect on the previous target ends.

Sharp Fingered

Starting at 3rd level, claws or stilettoed nails grow on the end of your fingers. They are natural weapons with the finesse property, which you can use to make unarmed strikes, dealing a base 1d4 slashing damage, instead of the bludgeoning damage for a normal unarmed strike.

Vampiric Traits

At 3rd level, you gain a Vampiric Trait of your choice. Traits are detailed at the end of the class description. You gain a second trait at 5th level and a third at 7th level.

While in mist form, you can't take any actions, speak, or manipulate objects. You are weightless, can hover, has a flying speed of 20 feet, and can pass through another creature's space and stop there. In addition, if air can pass through a space, you can do so without squeezing. You have advantage on Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution saving throws, and are immune to all nonmagical damage, except the damage you take from sunlight.

Extra Attack

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

Misty Escape

Starting at 6th level, when you are reduced to 0 hit points, you are instead reduced to 1 hit point and enter your mist form until the end of your next turn. When this effect triggers, you can immediately teleport up to 60 feet. After this effect triggers, it cannot be triggered again until the end of your next long rest.

Regeneration

At 9th level, you gain the regenerative powers of a vampire. Once per turn, you can expend a hit die to heal yourself. Roll the die, add your Constitution modifier, and regain a number of hit points equal to the total (minimum of 1). This trait doesn't function if you are in sunlight or running water. If you take radiant damage or damage from holy water, this trait doesn't function at the start of your next turn.

Unending Bloodshed

At 10th level, when you roll initiative, you regain 1 vampiric die if you don't have any left.
