Tactician[edit]

After a by far to long lasting battle only a few soliders from both sides were scattered around on the battlefield, as they gathered to finish this once and for all the elves, who where outnumbered by the orcs made a circle around an old man with only one arm. As the ors began to advance the old man started to scream commands and orders in elvish, as a reaction the elves fought with an unmatched precision, abusing every flaw in the armor and the fighting stance of their opponents. It took only merely some minutes until the last orc fell to the ground.

So the elves won this battle even if a major part of the remaining one died during the process.

Battle records[edit]

On your journeys and through your battlefield experience you gained a massive amount of knowledge and almost everything you have a large amount of notes on.

After studying and comparing it with other scripts and works of other brilliant minds you know can learn a lot about your enemies and other creatures you encounter.

During combat you can study the movements and stance of an enemy which you can see. You can do this at any given time during your turn (if in battle). (You can use this only once every turn)

After you complete your study you gain knowledge about that creature.

You can gain knowledge about 1 of these aspects: Current hit points, current AC, current movement speed.

You can not survey the same creature a second time until 2 minutes have passed. (2 turns when in combat)

Only you gain the knowledge directly from your GM with the exception being hit points.

Knowledge about hit points will only be given when your next turn begins, but you gain the knowledge from the points where you started surveying target creature.

Expanded records

At level 5 you can additionally choose from 4 more aspects:, Resource (if any) + remaining points of the resource (This includes spellslots but not the learned spells), 2 of its abilities,

Information about one of the equipped items at random (if any, and if a creature is holding an exotic/magical/rare item you only gain a bit information on its effects),

Active effects (Such like is it burning or regenerating, and you gain knowledge only about one of the positive and all negative effects affecting it at that point,

if the creature has more positive effects affecting it the GM will choose about which one you will gain knowledge, but not the same one twice)

Lightning comparison

At level 9 you develop the ability to compare your enemies more efficient which enables to gain knowledge from 2 enemies at once.

At level 15 you increase your efficiency even further which allows you to survey a single creature in more detail instead of 2 at once to gain knowledge in two aspects of that creature.

Focus[edit]

Focus is a result from intense of battle expirience and training.

The focus allows the tactician to perceive the battle in more detail, he is also able to concentrate, to comprehend more information within a shorter period of time.

Focus is also used to give commands, perform or enhance certain actions.


Due to your enhanced reactions you can use 1 focus whenever you receive damage from a nonmagical source to reduce that damage by 1. (Maximum reduction is 1)

All focus points will be restored after you performed a long rest.

Observation[edit]

Starting at level 2 you get more perceptive and are able to recall the habits and body language of a person you talked to.

You may add a +1 bonus to your persuasion roll against the individual you studied.

Furthermore you gain that bonus to insight against the person you have observed.

After you successfully managed to study their behavior you gain a +1 bonus on the next charisma saving throw or charisma related skill against them.

You can use this feature again after you performed a short rest or you can use a focus point to use this feature after 1 minute again.

A new angle

At level 7 these bonuses increases to +2 if you chose the Mystic warlord archetype.

Fighting orders[edit]

Tacticians usually prefer to stay in the back lines and support their team by exploiting weaknesses from the enemy, giving advice and correcting tactical mistakes from his/her allies.

In order to achive this you can use your action and 1 focus to give an ally (not yourself) a command or empower them. By using multiple focus points you can achieve different effects.

All these rolls are usually against the targets AC unless it is specified otherwise.

You can´t use any of these orders on yourself.

Allies are able to refuse to execute your order which results in nothing more than a loss of focus points. (This is more important when it comes to roleplaying itself)


At level 2 you can learn 1 command and an additional one at level 6, 11 and 18.


The command list is as follows:

-> Footwork

One ally who can hear or see you can use his reaction to move/climb/swim 10ft for 1 foucs point and 15ft for 2 focus points, during that time he can swap weapons seamlessly.

This can´t be used on movement impaired allies.

-> Silence Slash

One ally who can hear or see you can perform a normal meele attack with a slashing weapon against an enemy of his choice within a 5ft radius around him/her. If the attack hits, the target can´t cast

spells/cantrips which use voice for 1 round per used focus up to 2 rounds (This effect can´t be reapplied to creatures who already suffer under this effect).

Already active concentration spells will be cancelled.

The victim has to make a dexterity saving throw equal or higher than 8 + your proficiency bonus + dexterity modifier from the chosen ally to negate "silence" the effect.

-> Breathtaking blow

One ally who can see or hear you can perform a normal meele attack with a bludgeoning weapon against an enemy of his choice within a 5ft radius around him/her. If the attack hits the victim has to make a

constitution saving throw equal or higher than 5 + your proficiency bonus + strength modifier from the chosen ally. If the save fails the target is staggered for 1 round. This uses up 1 focus point.

-> Scatter shot

One ally who can hear or see you can use his/her reaction to shoot 2 magical projectiles with either one of their bows, crossbows or slings. This uses 1 focus and won´t consume any ammo.

The projectiles deal 1d6 force damage and gain all the bonuses from the targeted ally. Target ally can choose if he/she wants to attack either 2 targets at once or 1 target twice.

-> Defensive stance

One ally who can hear or see you gains 1 AC per spent focus (up to a maximum of 2) for 1 rounds. This does NOT stack.

-> Push

One ally who can hear or see you can use his/her reaction to perform a meele attack against an enemy within a 5ft radius around him/her. If the attack hits it deals half the damage (rounded up) and pushes the

enemy 5ft*spent focus backwards up to 10ft.

The target can resist the knockback effect by succeeding a strength saving throw against 5 + your proficiency bonus + strength modifier from the chosen ally.

This works only on creatures who are sized big or smaller.

-> Knockdown

One ally who can hear or see you can use his/her reaction to perform a non-magic attack against an enemy within a 5ft(melee)/20ft(ranged) radius around him/her. If the attack hits it only uses a 1d6 damage dice

instead of the normal weapon dice and knocks the target prone.

The target can resist the knockdown effect by succeeding a strength saving throw against 6 + your proficiency bonus + strength modifier from the chosen ally.

This works only on creatures who are sized medium or smaller.

This uses up 1 focus for the melee version and 2 for ranged.

-> Initiate

One ally who can hear or see you can use his/her reaction to perform an attack against an enemy within his/her attack range.

This consumes 2 focus.(Will be reduced to 1 if you choose the commander archetype)

-> Empower

One ally who can hear or see you will be granted a 1d6 magic damage bonus on his next attack for every spent focus point. To a maximum of 3.

(If a creature dies because of an empowered attack you will still regain focus from the level 6 commander archetype feature)

Steady aim[edit]

Beginning at level 5 you can calm your nerves and steady your hand down for your first shot.

As long as no enemies are within a 15ft radius around your hand crossbows use a 1d8 instead of a 1d6 and you gain a bonus on your first attack roll every turn.

The bonus is depending on your archetype:


-> Veteran: The 1d8 will be replaced with a 1d10.

-> Commander: The enemy will be slowed by 10ft for 1 minute if it is sized big or smaller. Otherwise it will be slowed by 5ft. (This will only take place if the target isn´t slowed already)

-> Wise: You can add your wisdom modifier to the attack roll.

If at least 1 enemy is within a 15ft radius around you, your attack rolls with ranged weapons recieve a -1 penalty.


If you are using any other kind of ranged weapon (Throwing weapons excluded) a different bonus based on your archetype.


-> Veteran: You deal 1d4 additional magic damage on a critical hit.

-> Commander: Allies in a 10ft radius around you who use the same type of ranged weapon gain +1 on their attack roll. (Bow, Crossbow, etc.)

-> Wise: The base damage of the attack ignores temporary hit points.

(The base damage is the actual damage die of the weapon. Critical bonus damage and all other kinds of additional damage still decreases the temporary hit points first.)

Extra attack[edit]

At level 7 you can use your bonus action to attack a second time. At level 14 you can use your bonus action to attack two more times instead of just one.

If you chose the commander archetype you gain a second action at level 14 instead. (You won´t gain additional movement speed and can only use it to attack or give a command)

Inner reserves[edit]

Beginning at the 10th level you can regain 1d4 focus points whenever you perform a short rest. This can be only used once per day or until you perform a long rest.

Furthermore you studied magical power sources such as Ki or magical resources. This allows you to give instructions to one ally (excluding yourself) which takes up 5 minutes and let him regain 1 point of one of his resources

(if any).

Resources are features like Ki, superior dice, spell slots and so on.

Whenever you help an ally to regenerate a spell slot this way, roll 1d8. The number determines which level the regained spell slot has. (if this spell slot would exceed the spell slot maximum for this level

regenerate a spell slot from a lower level of your choice instead)

You can use this ability once after you finished a long rest.

Enhanced endurance[edit]

At level 11 you optimized your footwork and increased your stamina.

Your movement speed increases by 10ft.

Initiate[edit]

Starting at level 15 you realize everything quicker than ever before.

Whenever you would be ambushed you can roll a normal d20 without any modifiers. If you roll 16 or higher you aren´t suprised. (If you chose the veteran archetype you only have to roll higher than 15)

You also gain a +2 bonus on initiate rolls.

Precision[edit]

When you reach level 18 your hand eye coordination has obtained unmatched precision which also allows you to modify ranged weapons. The modification of a ranged weapon takes 1 hour and 1 gp to complete.

The normal attack range of modified ranged weapons increases by 5ft and the maximum attack range increases by 10ft. When you wield such a modified ranged weapon these bonuses are doubled and you gain a

+1 bonus on the damage rolls.

Flawless victory[edit]

Beginning at level 20 you can rekindle the fighting spirits of your whole party with every success.

Whenever you or an ally who can see or hear you kills a creature and it hasn´t dealt damage to him/her yet he/she regains 1 of his/her resource (if any, if mutltiple you may choose one)

and regains hit points equal to the finishing blow.

If the ally doesn´t have a resource he/she regains 1d6 hit points instead. (Resources are for example: Ki or superior dices)

Whenever your party (at least you and one ally) wins a fight where no one lost any hit points in any way (even temporary hit points count except they would expire),

you and all allies who can see and hear you gain temporary hit points equal to all defeated creatures times two.

These temporary hit points do not expire but only apply if you have temporary hit points equal to your level or less. (if you have already time limited temporary hit points at that time they will also be counted)


(Example: If you are level 15 and have 6 temporary hit points with 1 hour duration left and have slain 5 creature you would gain 10 temporary hit points,

but you gain only 9 because it would exceed the limit otherwise. The 1 hit point will be lost and won´t apply after the time limited ones expire)

Tactician Archetypes[edit]

As you heard names of great warriors and heroes in the past, so your interest grows and you want know more about them.

You scoured every libary and listened to every story if you were able to and found some records about what made them so outstanding.

Now as you gather more information about some of their skills and techniques so you are able to use them yourself.

(You/your DM may use this as roleplay material. For example you actually have to look for records about something/someone so they can learn how to use the archetype abilities)

Veteran[edit]

Veteran´s sidearm

Starting at your 3rd level you gain proficiency with a meele weapon of your choice.

As long as you are using that meele weapon and leave the other hand empty you gain a bonus on all attack rolls with that weapon equal to your intelligence modifier.

You can switch now weapons as a bonus action and whenever you get attacked you can reduce that damage by 1. (Apply that damage reduction last unless another reduction effect says it should be applied last)

Your AC increases by 1.

Veteran reflexes

Beginning at level 6 all creatures who try to disarm your weapons recieve disadvantage on that roll.

You can also add your intelligence modifier to your damage rolls.

Evasive strike

At level 9 your can pay 2 focus points whenever you are being attack to inflict disadvantage on that attack.

If that attack would still hit you, you can use your reaction to attack with your drawn weapon and perform an attack without any bonuses against that creature.

Battle stance

At level 13 your stance changes to be able to absorb more incoming damage.

As you enter combat you gain 1d10 temporary hit points for 1 round.

The die will be replaced with a 1d4 when you are suprised.

Whenever you kill (has to be the killing blow) an enemy you also gain a 1d6 temporary hit points for 1 round.

If you kill an enemy and have more or equal temporary hit points than your actual level you won´t gain any additional temporary hit points from this feature.

(Even if the temporary hit points are from anonther source)

Death hail

Starting at the 17th level you can push yourself as an action to shoot a barrage of bolts/arrows into the sky. (You can do this only if there is at least 100ft space above you)

Choose an area with 10ft or up to 25ft of radius where the center is 10ft or up to 35ft away from your location.

All creatures inside take 1d8 piercing damage based on their size, unless they succeed a acrobatics saving throw. If so they only take half the damage.

(Add 1d8 based upon the size: Tiny 0, Small 1, Normal 2, and so on)

This uses up 3 focus points.

Commander[edit]

Advanced orders

During your studies you uncovered lost techniques and fighting formations. While investigating further into that subject you started to experiment a bit and came up with your own ideas.

At level 3 you gain an additional list of fighting orders. How to give commands is descripted above in the "Fighting orders" feature.

You can learn one of these at level 3, 7, 12, 19.

-> Lightning moves

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction move 15ft and go through enemies. This uses up 4 focus points but if there is no creature in the way it only uses 2.

If you pay 1 additional focus point you can increase the range up to 20ft in total.

-> The way of faust

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to sheath his/her weapon and make an unarmed attack against a creature within a 5ft radius around him/her with a

proficiency bonus + your charisma modifier bonus on the attack roll.

The attack uses a 1d6 and ignores temporary hit points. This uses up 2 focus.

-> Shatter

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to make an melee attack against a creature within a 5ft radius around him/her. The target has to make dexterity saving throw. If the save

fails the targets AC will be reduced by 1 for 2 minutes * used focus. (Maximum of 10 minutes)

The AC reduction stacks but the duration however will can not be refreshed which means if the duration expires all AC from that creature will be restored.

-> Stereo hit

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to make an melee attack with an bludgeoning weapon against a creature within a 5ft radius of him/her. If the attack hits it deals 2d4

damage and the target is stunned for 1 minute * used focus. (Maximum of 2 minutes)

The stun will only occur if target creature is sized big or smaller.

-> Opportunistic strike

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to make an attack (melee or ranged) against a creature which is within their attack range. If the attack hits it takes the damage from the

attack -3 (Minimum damage is 1) and deals 1 less damage on all non-magic attack for 1 minute (This stacks but doesn´t refresh the duration). This uses up 1 focus.


If an allied creature would perform an attack of opportunity you can use you reaction to use Opportunistic strike on target allied creature unless this creature refuses to. If opportunistic strike would

be used this way it consumes 1 additional focus point.

-> Crippling shot

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to make a ranged weapon attack against a creature which is within his/her normal attack range. The target has to make a constitution saving

throw against that attack. If it fails the target will recieve the damage, will be slowed by 5ft and gets a -1 penalty on dexterity and attack rolls for 1 minute * used focus (Maximum of 2 minutes).

These effects won´t stack.

If the target is sized greater than big, then these effects will only be applied if 2 focus points are used, but only for 1 minute.

-> Volley

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to make a ranged weapon attack against a certain amount of creatures which you can see and are within his/her normal attack range.

These attacks will deal 1d4 + your charisma modifier of damage and the attack roll itself for each creature will recieve a -1 penalty.

The amount of the attacked creatures is equal to the amount of focus points you are spending. (Unlimited, but the chosen ally can attack each creature only once per use of this feature)

The ally will use up the required ammo for every shot.

-> Sorcery

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to perform a spell of any kind unless they are already preparing one. If so then they may reduce the prepareration time by 1 minute.

If the chosen ally is performing a concentration spell this command won´t take any effect. The usage of this command uses up 2 focus points.

-> Devastating Blow

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to perform a melee or ranged weapon attack against a creature in his/her attack range. This consumes 2 focus.

-> Overpower

One ally of your choice who can see or hear you can use his/her reaction to perform a melee or ranged weapon attack against a creature in his/her attack range against target creatures

constitution or intelligence saving throw (the target uses the lower value). If the attack is successful: The next attacks against this creature will have advantage

unless the attacker would have disadvantage(In that case you gain neither advantage nor disadvantage). Attacks with advantage against that creature are 1 attack per 2 used focus points.

(If you used 9 focus the attack is guaranteed to hit but only grants 3 attacks with advantage, this feature won´t add advantage attack if it is already active).

If the attack fails only half of the damage (rounded down) will be applied and no other effect will take place.

The damage is calculated like this: Magic damage bonus from the used weapon + the weapon damage die + the possible critical bonus damage + the used focus points + your proficiency modifier.

(Minimum focus cost are 3 and the maximum is 9)

Winners mentality

At level 6 you gain new strength every time you see your work pays of.

Whenever an ally kills a creature with one of your fighting orders or your team wins a fight you regain 1 focus.

Also starting at level 12 you regain 1 focus point whenever you kill a creature if that creature hasn´t taken any damage from any other source during this fight.

Sidestep

Beginning at level 10 you can use your reaction when a melee attack is performed against you to dodge that attack if that damage would be at least reduced by 1 from any source.

If that happens you can either take that reduced damage or you can make a dexterity saving throw which has to be higher than your opponents attack roll.

Upon a failed save you will take the damage without the reduction values, otherwise the attack will miss.

You may additionally use 1 focus to move 5ft after that. This will not trigger any opportunity attacks. (Maximum 5ft)

Bodyguard

At level 13 you can coordinate with your comrades much smoother which allows you to protect yourself with the help of teammates.

Whenever you are the target of a meele attack and one ally who can see or hear you and is in a 5ft radius of that creature can use his/her reaction to impose

disadvantage on that roll unless the attacker has advantage on the roll. If so then the ally can use his/her reaction to reduce the incoming damage (if the attack hits) by your charisma modifier.

Inspiration

Your presence inspires your fellow comrades and boosts their moral.

With the beginning of level 17 your allies gain a +1 bonus on all of their rolls as long as they are in a 30ft radius around you and are able to see or hear you.

(This includes healing effects, dealing extra damage from sources like hunters mark, saving throws, etc.; this only affects attack rolls, damages dices, spells and features from you and your allies)
