First Level[edit]

  • Summon Insect: Beginning at 1st level, you have gathered enough bugs through your travels to make an army! You've also created your own special vial, just like baking soda and vinegar you must combine your insect with a special solution(similar to enlarge person, but for bugs). You can throw your vial containing your insect and enlarge bug 20ft to summon one of the 5 different insects.

01-20% will summon Bullet Ant
21-40% will summon Asain Giant Hornet
41-60% will summon Rhinoceros Beetle
61-80% will summon White Morpho Butterfly
81-100% will summon Funnel-web Spider

Insect chart at bottom.

  • Toxicologist: Also at 1st level, you've been bitten and stung by more insects then you've been living! You are now immune to poison!
  • Inter-fusion Vials: Lastly at 1st level, you've been collecting not just insect, but their poison and venom as well. All contained in your Entomologist Kit, you can store your insects toxins into a Inter-fusion Vial and throw them at will! List of Inter-fusions chart at bottom.

Second Level[edit]

  • Exoskeleton: At 2nd level, you have harvested enough bugs to make yourself an armour. The new stats of your armour will be (12+Int Modifier and will weight only 7lb.) At 5th level you have worn your new armour long enough that you've grown fine hairs on your hands and feet! You can now climb vertically and upside down for 5 minutes, before gravity start to pull you off the ledge you've crawled on. At 10th level, you've now grown wings! But you can't fly, you glide down when falling. Just like the feather fall spell.

Fourth Level[edit]

  • 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.

Sixth Level[edit]

  • Disengage: At 6th level, as a bonus action, you've practiced some pretty snazzy tricks! You're able to use your (let's say grasshopper) legs to jump backwards 15ft. While you're in the air, if you were 5ft from a target you can throw your spider-bomb vial as well! Once/per short or long rest, and at level 12 you can now Disengage twice per short or long rest.

Ninth Level[edit]

  • Sister Species: At 9th level, after careful studies, you've watched the relatives of each species and are able to do something unique!

Whenever you summon the

Bullet Ant: You can now carry 3 times your weight, also you now have an ADV on Str checks and saves! While the ant is alive.
Asian Giant Hornet: With fast speed, but you're also a menace. You have +2 on Initiative and ADV on Intimidation.
Rhinoceros Beetle: Your skin becomes even tougher, like a beetle. AC is increased by 2 while the beetle is alive.
White Morpho Butterfly Elegance and beauty. You can roll ADV on your Persuasion, Nature and Medicine.
Funnel Web Spider: With many eyes and legs you are even more dextral. Your stealth and Slight of Hand are now rolled at ADV.

(You can have all 5 buff active at once, and they all stack)

Fifteenth Level[edit]

  • Locust Plague: One of your favourite insect is the Locust, after a full turn of concentration you can summon a Plague of Locust in a 15 ft radius, 30 ft from you. Everything in the area must make a Dexterity Saving Throw or take 10d6 Blundering damage. If failed you also get one Diseases (DM's choice). Once/per long rest.

Twentieth Level[edit]

  • Bite of Death: You have a gathered a lot of the most poisons you could ever imagine and have created a super toxin. You dip a needle into it and can puncture a humanoid. That humanoid has to make a Constitution Save or take 7d8+30Poison damage. On a failed save the humanoid cannot cure itself and keeps taking 15 poison damage each of its turns until it dies! Takes one full day to make another dose.
