All angels have an innate ability to cure basic wounds and dispose of poisons and diseases. You have a pool of healing equal to 5 times your angel level. Starting at 1st level, you can channel this ability to perform a healing touch. Using an action, you can touch a willing creature and restore a number of hit points to it, not exceeding healing touch pool. You also rid the target of any condition using 5 points.
At 10th level, your healing touch is empowered. Your pool now grows to be 10 x your angel level.
At 1st level, you grow a pair of wings as part of becoming an angel. These wings are new and as such will take some getting used to and proper training to be able to function correctly. When you are subject to fall damage, you can reduce the damage by a number equal to 5 times your angel level. These wings are incorporeal and translucent, emitting a faint glow.
At 6th level, you start to learn how to fly with these wings. You gain a flying speed equal to half your walking speed, but you need to end this movement on land, or else you will fall.
Starting at 15th level, your flying speed with your wings become equal to your walking speed, and you no longer need to end your movement on the ground. If you have any form of racial flying speed, you add half your walking speed to your flying speed.
Starting at 1st level you choose an Angelic domain pushing you to follow a core trait from the following listed here: Angelic Domains. Your Angelic domain grants you benefits at 1st level, and again at 7th, 14th, and 20th levels.
At 2nd level you awaken your celestial magical powers.
- Preparing and Casting Spells
The angel table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.
You prepare the list of cleric spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the cleric spell list. When you do so, choose a number of angel spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + half your angel level, rounded down (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
For example, if you are a 5th level angel, you have four 1st level and two 2nd level spell Slots. With a Wisdom of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st level spell cure wounds, you can cast it using a 1st or 2nd level slot. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.
You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of angel spells requires time spent in prayer and meditation: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.
- Spellcasting Ability
Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your angel spells. The power of your spells comes from your devotion to your deity. You use your Wisdom whenever an angel spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for an angel spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.
Starting at 3rd level, your unnaturally holy form gives off a slight glow that you can ignite and extinguish as a bonus action on your turn. This radiance glows a 10 foot aura of bright light with an additional 10 foot aura of dim light beyond it.
Your glowing radiance can glow even through magical darkness. Additionally, when the bright portion of your light contacts magical darkness, you can use your action to try to dispel it. You must make an ability check using your spellcasting ability, and, on a success, the spell causing the magical darkness is dispelled. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level.
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.
Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the attack action on your turn.
Voice of Authority
An angel's voice brings about many different effects, some soothing and some commanding. At 6th level, you gain proficiency in persuasion and intimidation. If you already have proficiency in one or both of these skills you can add double your proficiency bonus to any check made with these skills.
Beginning at 11th level, you will always know if you hear a lie from any creature. It feels like a sudden onset of discomfort and irritation when you hear a lie. In addition, you have advantage on all Wisdom (Insight) checks to perceive a lie.
Also, you now have the zone of truth spell permanently prepared and does not count against your number of prepared spells. You can cast this spell without expending a spell slot a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.
Your angelic nature is reaching its peak as you become a legendary force to be reckoned with. With this growing strength comes a multitude of dangers and you have grown capable of predicting these dangers over the years. At 18th level, when a creature makes an attack roll against you, you can expend your reaction to force the attack roll to be made at disadvantage and you cannot be surprised. Additionally, you gain truesight out to 60 ft.
You have finally won your deity's favor, and as such are granted with incomparable power and glory of being a God's favorite. At 20th level, your Wisdom score increases by 4 as does your maximum for that ability.
