Razing Buster[edit]

A solitary figure walks across a blazing desert. Neither wind nor rain slows her down. A huge stinger bursts out of the ground, aiming to flank her. In a flash, she draws from one of the many weapons strapped to her body, a large blade. The stinger bounces off the flat of the blade with a sound like striking metal. From the sand emerges an angry Giant Scorpion, lashing its stinger about. The woman gnashes her teeth and slashes down hard, sending a rippling wave that easily cleaves the beast in half.

Hunger for Power[edit]

The Razing Buster is an indiscriminate destroyer of sorts, neither necessarily good nor evil. Though they differ in disposition, the nature of a Razing Buster is to destroy enemies, buildings, cities, you name it. Unlike a demolitionist, they often do so not as an end, but often as a result coming from their immense power in battle. As you can guess, they are the type to vie for battle and hate to be outmatched. If they are, they are quick to seek out greater and greater heights. It's just a guess, but perhaps they long to be god.

Creating a Godseeker[edit]

Razing Busters are powerful, vicious fighters. Little matters to them more than self-refinement through battle, as that is their sole purpose. Why did your character become a Buster? What life did your character leave behind as a result of this new occupation? What damage has your character already committed, if any? If your character is a newbie Buster, you might want to think about what caused such detachment to become so. Does your Razing Buster desire power? Destruction?

Unarmored Defense[edit]

Razing Busters are tough, even unarmored. They have to be, to brave the hordes of enemies they often face. Beginning at 1st level, while you are not wearing any armor, your Armor Class equals 10 + your Strength modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a Shield and still gain this benefit.

Two-Weapon Fighting[edit]

Beginning at 1st level, you can fight with a different weapon in each hand, as long as it does not have the two-handed property. You can make one extra attack each round with the second weapon, expending your bonus action. The second weapon may only use your proficiency bonus if you are proficient in it and has the Light property.

Dual Wielder[edit]

Beginning at 2nd level, your dual-wielding style becomes more efficient. You can better engage enemies than before when wielding two weapons. When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack. Weapons you wield with Two-Weapon Fighting no longer need to have the Light property to use your proficiency bonus.

Fists of Demolition[edit]

What happens to a Razing Buster when all their arsenal fails them? They have to be able to stand their ground despite having no weapons. A Razing Buster has incredible amounts of raw strength to be channeled. Beginning 2nd level, your unarmed strikes gain the following:

  • Your fists are considered light weapons. The damage die for your unarmed strike increases to a 1d6. This increases further when you reach higher levels: your unarmed strike's damage die increases to a 1d8 at 5th level, a 1d10 at 11th level, and a 1d20 at 17th level.
  • When you use the Attack action to make an unarmed strike on your turn, and you are not wielding a shield, you can make another unarmed strike as a bonus action.

Path of Destruction Feature[edit]

At 3rd level, you decide for yourself the path you will forge with your raw power. Choose from the Path of the Avenger, Path of the Hellraiser, Path of the Nihilist, and Path of the Harbinger.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

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[edit]

Razing Busters deal insane amounts of damage attacking in a furious series of successive strikes. When you reach 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the attack action on your turn. The number of attacks increases to three when you reach 11th level in this class and to four when you reach 20th level in this class.

Boundless Leap[edit]

Razing Buster physique is good and able to outdo that of other beings. When you reach 7th level, add half your proficiency bonus rounded down to Athletics and Acrobatics and skill checks you make even if you are already proficient with them. In addition, your jump distance is tripled. You automatically succeed checks to land on your feet and take no fall damage unless you are incapacitated, paralyzed, petrified, stunned, or unconscious.

Cry of the Blade[edit]

The weapons of a Razing Buster are akin to comrades. To a Buster, it's a bit like they have souls that can be channeled in battle. A Buster can utilize this to such extents that a single swing can make a shockwave that hits even opponents at a range. Starting at 7th level, you may expend an action and make a range weapon attack with a melee weapon against a target up to 30 feet away from you. On a hit, the target takes 3d6 force damage. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Strength modifier, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Unbending Will[edit]

Razing Busters are built with bodies capable of taking punishment. When you reach 9th level, when you drop down to 0 hit points, you can instead choose to drop down to 1 hit point. You may use this feature twice, regaining all uses after a long rest.

Might[edit]

You are a real menace, so battle-hardened you can even will your blade to strike at the weakest spots. Starting at level 10, when you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack, you may have that hit become a critical hit. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, regaining all uses after finishing a long rest.

Crushing Aura[edit]

Beginning at level 11, your impeccable aura forms a protective ward against damage around you. All damage rolls you take have a flat -3 reduction.

Improved Two-Weapon Fighting[edit]

When you reach 13th level, you may now make two attacks when you use your bonus action to attack with your off-hand weapon. This second attack has disadvantage to its attack roll.

Battle Sense[edit]

When you reach 15th level, your instincts have become so honed that you are more able to take advantage of enemies' weaknesses. Your weapon attacks now score a critical hit on a roll of 18–20.

Greater Two-Weapon Fighting[edit]

When you reach 20th level, the second attack from your off-hand weapon no longer suffers a penalty. In addition, you cannot be imposed with disadvantage to your attack rolls if you have a weapon in each hand or if you are unarmed in both hands.

Path of the Avenger[edit]

You will destroy all, because you were wronged by all. You fight driven by vengeance and anger directed at all.

Pure Strong Will

Starting at level 3, when you fail a Strength check or saving throw, you may instead choose to have it succeed instead. You may only use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, regaining all uses after a long rest.

Nemesis

You're fast and furious. No one's going to get away with hitting you without a good blowback. Starting at level 6, when you are hit by a melee attack, you may use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against that creature.

Braving Adversity

Starting at level 14, your strength is so overpowering it can often buffer you from your weaker points. You may choose to have Strength saving throws to be treated as Dexterity saving throws. In addition, when subjected to a spell with a Dexterity or Constitution saving throw where you take half damage on success, you instead take no damage on success and half damage on failure.

Swift

Starting at level 17, you (finally!) can expend a bonus action to dash instead of an action.

Götterdämmerung

The divine sword that will slice the heavens and render life extinct is in your power! Starting at level 20, you have the capacity to create a sentient sword as an action. It has its turn at the same time as your turn, expending your bonus action, during which it can hover about, up to a range of 30 feet from your position, occupy another creature's space, teleport back to you, and/or make an attack against a creature within 5 feet of it (no action required by you), dealing 5d10 magical slashing damage. The attack roll uses your stats as if you were proficient in it. If the sword goes outside the 30 feet range, it immediately teleports back to you. You may also choose to wield this sword; the stats are the same as when it is hovering. You cannot be forcibly disarmed of this sword while wielding it. If the sword is being used by another creature, you may have it immediately teleport to your space; this does not use a reaction and is considered a free action. It cannot exist in areas with an anti-magic effect. You may only have 1 sentient sword at a time and can dismiss it with an action.

Path of the Hellraiser[edit]

You destroy just for that. Destruction! Destroy, destroy! Isn't it so beautiful?!

Hell Blade

Beginning at level 3, you can coat your weapon of choice in a wreath of unholy black fire and BURN everyone! By expending a bonus action, you can enchant one weapon of your choice you currently wield. Upon hitting, it deals an extra 1d6 fire damage die. the effect of this feature lasts 1d10 turns. You can expend a bonus action likewise to put out the flames and revert the weapon to normal.

Face of Death

You gain proficiency in Intimidation, and your proficiency bonus doubles for any ability check you make that uses Intimidation. You also gain immunity against being Charmed.

Glare

Starting at level 14, you turn fear into a weapon. You may use your action to Glare at a creature that you can see and can see you within 30 ft. The creature must succeed a Wisdom saving throw of DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength modifier or become overwhelmed with fear, causing them to be paralyzed for 1 minute. On failure, they become frightened instead. The creature can make another Wisdom saving throw at the start of each of its turns to remove the condition. A creature subjected to Glare of the Divine will become immune to it for the next 24 hours. If you reduce a creature's hit points to 0 while creature(s) affected by Glare of the Divine can see you, you regain one use of this feature. You may only use this feature three times, regaining all uses at the end of a long rest.

Sun Eater

You can send foolish opponents into a panic by summoning a divine darkness. Starting at level 17, you gain the power to radiate darkness from your position out to a 30-foot radius as an action. This magical darkness moves with you wherever you go. You alone can see through the darkness, and creatures without true sight cannot see past the darkness. This magical darkness lasts up to 10 minutes and can be dispelled with no action required by you. You may only use this feature twice, regaining all uses at the end of a long rest.

Nyx

You are able to dodge attacks that would otherwise be undodgeable, and make the attacker look stupid while doing it. Starting at level 20, if an attack would hit you, you may use your reaction to cause the attack to miss instead. Using this feature also forces the creature who would have hit you to end their turn. You may use this twice and regain all uses at the end of a long rest.

Path of the Nihilist[edit]

You feel nothing. The world is but a mass to be destroyed. That's all. You're just doing your thing.

Relatable Destroyer

Starting at level 3, people pity you, as you are seen as a poor soul without empathy. You gain proficiency in Persuasion, and your proficiency bonus doubles for any ability check you make that uses Persuasion.

Unceasing

Starting at level 6, your journeys for targets to destroy has allowed you to tolerate harsh environments and ignore their penalties, such as the increased required water intake when traversing through a scorching desert. You also gain advantage in saving throws or skill checks that would cause you to gain level(s) of exhaustion on a failure.

Shielded Mind

Starting at level 14, you have trained your mind against the mind tricks enemies may try to cast on you. You gain an advantage in Wisdom and Intelligence saving throws. In addition, if you fail a Wisdom or Intelligence saving throw, you may choose to reroll, but treating it as a Strength or Constitution saving throw. When using this feature to reroll, you may give yourself advantage in the saving throw. You may only choose to give advantage to the reroll a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, regaining all uses after a long rest.

Protection from Polarity

Light and Dark, good and evil. All semantics. And you are now proof, walking the path of nil. Beginning at level 17, you gain resistance to radiant and necrotic damage. You are also considered to be permanently under the effects of protection from evil and good.

Nirvana

Beginning at level 20, you gain the ability to harness all energies around you to aid your healing. As an action, you restore yourself as if you had just finished a long rest, as well as curing all diseases, removing the poisoned condition, and regaining all of your hit points but without removing temporary hit points, if you had any. You may only use this once, regaining use of this feature after you finish a long rest.

Path of the Harbinger[edit]

The material world is an illusion. Destruction is to free oneself from the illusion. Help free yourself and others by breaking a few houses.

Ascended Stride

Little can impede your steps as you walk towards complete freedom from material. Beginning at level 3, moving through non-magical difficult terrain costs you no extra movement. You can also pass through non-magical terrain without being slowed by it and without taking damage from it if they have thorns, spines, or a similar hazard. In addition, you have advantage on saving throws that use magic to impede movement.

Wings

Flight is always a good way to deal with those pesky flier enemies. At level 6, you gain the ability to summon and dismiss wings of pure light as a free action, with a flight speed of 30 feet. If you already had flight speed, add 15 feet to it. This speed is not affected by armor nor encumbrance.

Healing Ripple

Surprise! The Harbinger is a Buster who mostly pledges to destroy stuff and usually not people. In fact, they tend to try and help a bit. They can even heal. At level 14, you can emit a wave of healing energy washes out from your position. As an action, choose up to six creatures within 30 feet of you to be affected. Each target regains hit points equal to 4d8. This spell has no effect on undead or constructs. You may only use this feature three times, regaining all uses after a long rest.

Fangs of Light

At level 17, as an action, you can summon flying swords of pure light to float next to you. These swords last for 1 minute, with each new cast refreshing the duration. You may only have up to four of these at a time; casting it further will just refresh the duration. As an action, target a creature within 120 feet and make a ranged spell attack, launching all the swords at it, dealing 2d8 radiant damage for each sword. You may also choose to launch the swords as part of the same action you summoned them. You are considered proficient in these swords.

Incantation Rune

At level 20, you have gained the power to harness runes to do your destructive bidding. Using your action, you may target a point that you can see and cause an immense light with a radius of up to 50 feet to rain down upon it. You can concentrate on this spell for 1 minute. Creatures entering or starting their turn within the radius must make a Dexterity saving throw with a DC of 20 + your Strength or Constitution modifier. Those who fail take 5d10 radiant damage, ignoring resistance or immunity, or half as much on success. Aberrations, fiends, monstrosities, and undead automatically fail the saving throw and take max damage; they also become paralyzed for 10 minutes after getting hit. After using it once, you must finish a long rest before being able to use it again.
