PART 1.1 | Weapon Properties

Holy Moonlight Sword

Trick Weapon (claymore), legendary (requires attunement)

An arcane sword discovered long ago by Ludwig before his downfall into Beasthood.

When blue moonlight dances around the sword, and it channels the abyssal cosmos, its great blade will hurl a shadowy lightwave. The Holy Moonlight Sword is synonymous with Ludwig, the Holy Blade, but few have ever set eyes on the great blade, and whatever guidance it has to offer, it seems to be of a very private, elusive sort.

This weapon takes the form of a one-handed claymore. In its untransformed state, it deals 1d10 slashing damage and has the Heavy, Trick, and Versatile (2d6) properties. You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. It has the following additional properties.

Trick. This ancient claymore becomes wreathed in moonlit, pale arcane energy. It gains the Two-Handed property, dealing 2d6 slashing and an additional 2d12 radiant damage.

The True Mentor. While you are attuned to the Holy Moonlight Sword, you gain the flaw: I hear the sword whispering its secrets to me, and I must know them. You have disadvantage attacking with any other weapon. You even occasionally hear the Holy Moonlight Sword whispering to you forbidden knowledge not meant for mortals, slowly driving you mad.

Moonlight Slash. When you attack with the Holy Moonlight Sword in its transformed state, you can choose to send out a wave of Moonlight energy with the slash. A crescent of arcane energy flies from the blade in a 30 ft long, 5 ft wide line in the direction you attacked. Any creature in the line must succeed a Dexterity Save equal to 8 + your Intelligence modifier + your Proficiency modifier, taking 4d12 radiant damage on failure and half as much on a success. The creature hit by the initial attack automatically fails its saving throw. You can perform this action a number of times equal to your Intelligence modifier + 2. Using this action automatically consumes one Quicksilver Bullet.

Moonlight Burst. As an action, you can drive the Holy Moonlight Sword into the ground, causing a burst of arcane energy to shockwave upwards. Any creature in a 10 ft radius and 20 ft cylinder centered on you must succeed a Dexterity Saving throw equal to your Intelligence DC or take 1d12 radiant and 1d12 force damage on a failure and half as much on a success. You can perform this action a number of times equal to half your Intelligence modifier, rounded down.

Moonlight Combo. As an action, you can raise the sword upward and release a burst of moonlight energy. Any creature within 10 feet of you must succeed a Dexterity saving throw and an Athletics (Strength) or Acrobatics (Dexterity) check. Failing the Dexterity save, they take 1d12 radiant damage, half as much on a success. Failing the AAthletics or Acrobatics check, the creature is knocked prone. If a creature adjacent to you is knocked prone, you can spend your Reaction to make an attack against them, dealing an extra 1d12 damage on hit. You can perform this ability twice per long rest.


The Accursed Rakuyo

Trick Weapon (Rakuyo), legendary (requires attunement)

Hunter weapon wielded by Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower.

A trick sword originated in the same country as the Cainhurst Chikage, only this sword feeds not off blood, but instead demands great dexterity. Lady Maria was fond of this aspect of the Rakuyo, as she frowned upon blood blades, despite being a distant relative of the queen. One day, she abandoned her beloved Rakuyo, casting it into a dark well, when she could stomach it no longer.

You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. It has the following additional properties.

Trick. This double-ended sword splits into two smaller swords. They each have the Light property and deal 1d6 slashing damage each.

First Blood. Once you lose 40% of your total Hit Points, as an action, you can expend two hit die and impale yourself upon the two blades of Rakuyo in an explosion of blood, coating the blades in tainted blood. Your attacks gain the Reach property and you deal 1d10 slashing and an additional 1d10 necrotic damage.

Bloody Comet. Pick one square within 60 feet of your position. You may rise straight into the air and crash-land there with an explosion of blood. Every creature within 10 feet of your landing space takes 2d10 necrotic damage. This consumes your movement action and can only be done a number equal to your Proficiency modifier while First Blood is active.

Expunge the Blood. As an Action, you may expunge the corrupted blood in a visceral explosion. Every creature within a 20 foot sphere centered on yourself must make a Dexterity saving throw wit ha DC equal to 8 + your Proficiency modifier + your Charisma modifier, taking 2d10 necrotic damage on a failed save and half as much on a success.

Burning Blood. Once you lose 75% of your total Hit Points, as an action you can give more to the accursed blades, levitating above the ground momentarily as Rakuyo siphons blood from the surrounding area. The blades of Rakuyo are coated in boiling blood and radiating heat. Your attacks gain the Long-Reach property and deal an additional 1d10 fire damage. All abilities usable in First Blood are available in this mode, with 5 feet longer reach and additional fire damage.

An old bone taken from Hunters who've mastered the art of Quickening,

Once activated, it allows the user to use Quickening, teleporting 10 feet as a free action as long as the effect lasts. You can teleport through objects and creatures as though they didn't exist.

If you are caught in an area of effect, you can use your reaction to teleport out of it, if possible.

Tiny Tonitrus

Quicksilver Cost: 6


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self (40-foot line)
  • Requirement: 17 Intelligence
  • Duration: Instantaneous

This is a replica of the Tonitrus created by an eccentric inventor of the Healing Church.

Slamming it into the ground creates a 40 foot long line of lightning to burst from the sky. Every creature in the line must succeed a Dexterity Saving Throw against the Save DC, taking 4d6 Lightning damage and falling prone on a failure, and half as much and don't fall prone on a success.

10

PART 4 | Hunter Tools

Save DC

The Save DC for the Hunter's Tools depends on the person using them. It equals 8+Proficiency+Required Ability Score Modifier.

So, for instance, using Tiny Tonitrus with an Int score of 16 at level 11, the DC would equal 8+4+3= DC 15.

No QS Bullets? No problem!

Seeing as this is a highly experimental system, the Hunters Tools can simply be reallocated as Spells with Spell Slots.

Caryll Runes

Runes scribed by Caryll, hence the name. They are written in the language of the Great Ones, and memorizing them can grant wondrous abilities. Memorizing a Caryll Rune takes time and study, which can be done during a Long Rest or Downtime. Up to 4 Caryll Runes can be equipped at any time, however, only 1 of them can be an Oath Rune.

Head of the Moon

Wonderous Item (gauntlet), legendary (requires attunement)

The decapitated head of the infamous Great One, the Moon Presence that still retains the Great One's absurd powers, though greatly diminished.

Rumors and theories crafted suggest that it was the proprietor of the Hunt, while others say the Hunt was a conspiratory plot to slay it by the other Great Ones. While wearing the Head of the Moon,

You gain a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic item and it deals an additional 1d6 Psychic damage on a hit. It has the following properties.

Blood Moon Orb. The 'mouth' of the Moon Presence howls, spitting out a pale white orb that floats above your head that rains tainted blood at your command as a bonus action. All creatures adjacent to you must succeed a DC 15 Dexterity Save or become covered. Once covered, all magical effects are dispelled for 1 minute and are unable to be
healed by magical effects.

Moon Presence's power to cause pale clouds to
form in any spot you can see within 50 feet.

those within the area. Everyone in the
area must succeed a DC 17 Dexterity
Saving throw or lose the ability to
heal by any means for an hour.

you can hold the head forth and
release a burst of light. All creatures

(10d10) Psychic damage. On a
successful save, the creature takes
no damage.

This damage is nonlethal and does
not render the target unconscious.
Creatures who are Blinded
automatically succeed this
save.

This attack is very stressful
to the user, granting you one
point of exhaustion upon usage.

PART 6.2 | Legendary Item

Feats

Seeing as Trick Weapons or any of the sort are a far cry from D&D, let alone D&D 5th Edition, I took it upon myself to make some. Granted, you could always just take the Weapon Master feat available in the PBH, but I plan to put special twists on these. Or, try anyway.

Blood Bullet Technique

A Hunter's alchemic knowledge to transmute Blood into Quicksilver Bullets. By spending an action, you can exchange 30% of your health for 5 Quicksilver Bullets. The number of Blood Bullets you can carry can never go above 5.

Gun-Parry

Prerequisite: Proficiency in Firearms

A trick of the Hunters of old, you stumbled across this old technique. If a creature's attack misses you while you have a one-handed firearm in your hand, you can expend a piece of ammunition to fire point-blank. Make the attack with Disadvantage. If the attack hits, it counts as a critical from the firearm and is Stunned until the end of your next turn.

Rally

You shiver with excitement at the thought of bathing in your enemies' blood.

Whenever you take damage or lose health in any way and are still conscious, you can attack a creature and gain half of the damage dealt in Temporary Hit Points.

Trick Weapon Knowledge

Prerequisite: Proficiency in Martial and Simple Weapons

You have started on the long road toward becoming a Hunter, gaining the following benefit. You gain proficiency with Trick Weapons.

Trick Weapon Mastery

Prerequisite: Proficiency in Trick Weaponry

Your travels along the oft-untouched road of the Hunter grant you further mastery over its arms. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Strength of Dexterity score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • When you attack with a Trick Weapon, you can choose to transform the weapon during the attack if it has a transformation.

Visceral Attack

Prerequisite: Gun-Parry

Your path leads you to bloodier depths of Hunting. If you successfully Gun-Parry a creature, you can use an action on your turn to perform a Visceral attack. Your next melee attack counts as a critical and the target is no longer stunned.

PART 7 | Feats

New Conditions

Beasthood

When a creature temporarily submits to their inner beast and abandons their humanity momentarily in the midst of slaughter, they take on the appearance and mannerisms of a wild beast. The creature affected by Beasthood gains the partial physical appearance of beasts, usually wolfish in nature; excess hair, glowing eyes, elongated canines, etc. The effects are as follows.

  • Advantage on all Intimidation (Charisma) checks.
  • Disadvantage on all Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma checks and saving throws.
  • All attacks made by the creature have one extra damage die.
  • The creature is considered vulnerable to all sources of incoming damage.
  • The creature counts as one size larger as if effected by the Enlarge effect of the Enlarge/Reduce spell.
Note
  • Damage resistance granted by racial features (like Tiefling's Hellish Resistance, Dragonborn's Draconic Resistance, and Dwarven Resilience traits) are still in effect, making the damage as normal, neither vulnerable or resistant.
  • Do not include the extra 1d4 damage gained by Enlarge if the extra damage die is being added to the attack.

Frenzy

When a creature's brain is unable, and yet forced, to process information pertaining to the Eldritch Truth or the Great Ones, resulting in brief insanity and variably short
circuiting the brain or possibly experiencing sheer agony.
The effects of this are as follows.

  • A Frenzied creature's damage output is halved for the duration of the effect.
  • The creature becomes resistant to all types of damage and immunity to Psychic damage for the duration.
  • The creature has Disadvantage on all ability checks and saving throws.
