Belly Dancer[edit]

An elven woman slips into the shadows of the castle. In her pack is the documents she has stolen from the archduke's bedchambers.

A halfling woman dances in the inn. As she dances, she she slips the rings off of a rich merchant's fingers.

The human man faces off against a horde of goblins. He dances around the battlefield, effortlessly dodging and felling his many enemies.

Dancer in Shadows[edit]

A Belly Dancer can be many things. Someone who has worked in a palace as an entertainer. Someone who dances in a small, smelly inn to get the money to eat. Or someone who was kept by a rich noble as a plaything. No matter what your background is, now you have been thrust into the role of an adventurer, be it by choice or by fate. You have to embrace your past and use it to aid your party any way you can.

While a Belly Dancer brings up images of sex and skimpy outfits, this class does not have to be that way. This class is about sneaking around, spying, and using one's body to kick ass. You can take it as a spiritual thing using dancing to center oneself, or just as a pastime.

Creating a Belly Dancer[edit]

Think about what makes your character who they are. What is their background? How did they end up as an Belly Dancer ? Were they forced into it by a slaver? Was it something they chose to do as a thrilling way to make money. Do they regret or feel shame for their past choices now? Do they look fondly at that time in their life? Do they speak openly about their past, or are they guarded about their feelings?

What made them start adventuring? Did they decide to do it for the next thrill? Was is by pure chance, and they were in the wrong place at the right time? Are they looking for something existential or personal? All these questions lead to a better understanding of your character and their motivations.

Quick Build

You can make an Belly Dancer quickly by following these suggestions. First, Dexterity should be your highest ability score, followed by Wisdom and Charisma. Second, choose the entertainer or spy background.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

At 1st level, While wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Charisma modifier + your Dexterity modifier.

Warrior Dance[edit]

At 1st level, you can use your fast and aggressive movements in combat, attacking with your body and with belly dancer weapons. You can chose a number of weapons equal to your Dexterity modifier as belly dancer weapons. You can chose any melee weapon that lack the heavy or the two handed property.

You gain the following benefits when unarmed or wielding only belly dancer weapons and not wearing armor or wielding a shield:

  • Unarmed strikes and belly dancer weapons count as finesse weapons (if they weren't already), allowing you to use either Dexterity or Strength for attack and damage rolls with those weapons.
  • You can use a d4 in place of the normal weapon damage dice with unarmed strikes or Belly Dancer weapons. This die increases as you gain Belly Dancer levels, as shown on the table above.
  • When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a Belly Dancer weapon on your turn, you may make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.

Heka[edit]

At 2nd level, your training allows you to channel the mystic energy of heka. Your access to this power is represented by a number of heka points. You have a number of hekapoints equal to your Belly Dancer level. When you spend a heka point, it is unavailable until you finish a short or long rest, at which point you draw all of your expended heka back into yourself. You must spend at least 30 minutes of the rest meditating in order to regain heka. Some heka powers require your target to make a saving throw to resist the effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

  • heka save DC= 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier.

You start with the knowledge of these three heka powers:

Flurry of Blows

Immediately after taking the Attack action on your turn, you may spend 1 heka point to make two unarmed strikes as a bonus action

Patient Defense

You can spend 1 heka point to take the Dodge action as a bonus action on your turn.

Step of the Wind

You can spend 1 heka point to take the Disengage or Dash action as a bonus action on your turn. When you do so, your jump distance is doubled for the turn

Unarmored Movement[edit]

At 2nd level, your speed increases by ten feet when you are not wearing armor or using a shield and continues increasing as the Belly Dancer levels up as shown in the table above.

At 9th level, you gain the ability to move along vertical surfaces and across liquids on your turn without falling during the move. You must end the movement on a solid, upright surface or risk falling or sinking.

Slow Fall[edit]

At 4th level, you may use your reaction to reduce any falling damage taken by an amount equal to 5 times your Belly Dancer level.

Belly Dancer Inspiration[edit]

At 5th level, You can inspire others with stirring words or music. You may use a bonus action to grant a Belly Dancer Inspiration die to one creature within 60 feet. This die is a d8; at 10th level it is a d10; and at 15th level it is a d12. This die lasts for 10 minutes or until expended.

A creature with a Belly Dancer Inspiration die can expend it to roll the die and add the result to any one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes. The creature may use this before or after the d20 is rolled, but only before the DM announces whether the roll was a success or failure. A creature may only have one Belly Dancer Inspiration die at a time.

This ability may be used a number of times equal to your Charisma mod (min. 1). You regain expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Expertise[edit]

At 7th level, choose two of your skill proficiencies. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses either skill. At 10th level, you gain this benefit with two additional skill proficiencies.

Fighting Style[edit]

At 7th level, your training emphasizes mastery with weapons, granting you access to the two-weapon fighting option for the Fighting Style class feature. Two-Weapon Fighting. When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.

Blade Flourish[edit]

At 7th level, you learn to conduct impressive displays of skill with your weapons. When you use the Attack action on your turn and attack with a dagger, longsword, rapier, scimitar, or shortsword, you can attempt one of the following flourishes.

Defensive Flourish

You spin your weapon around you in swift circles, creating a hypnotic display. As a bonus action, you expend one use of Belly Dancer Inspiration, rolling a Belly Dancer Inspiration die and applying the number rolled as a bonus to your AC until the start of your next turn.

Trick Shooter’s Flourish

This favorite trick of knife throwers allows you to expend one use of Belly Dancer Inspiration as a bonus action. Roll a Belly Dancer Inspiration die and apply the number rolled as a bonus to the next ranged attack roll you make with a dagger this turn. If the target of the attack is an unattended, inanimate object, the bonus equals double the die roll.

Unnerving Flourish

Your deadly display of combat prowess unnerves your opponents, leaving them cowering in fear and at your mercy. Whenever you reduce a creature to 0 hit points with a melee attack, you can use a bonus action to expend one use of Belly Dancer Inspiration, and instead leave the creature at 1 hit point.

The creature is frightened of you for a number of minutes equal to your Charisma modifier. It must

also make a Charisma saving throw with a DC equal to your spellcasting DC + a bonus equal to the roll of your Belly Dancer Inspiration die. If the creature fails this saving throw, it answers truthfully any questions you ask it and obeys your direct orders while it is frightened by this effect.

Sneak Attack[edit]

At 9th level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe's distraction. Once per turn, you can deal an extra damage to one creature you hit with an Attack if you have advantage on the Attack roll. The Attack must use a Finesse or a ranged weapon.

You don't need advantage on the Attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn't Incapacitated, and you don't have disadvantage on the Attack roll.

The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Sneak Attack column of the Belly Dancer table.

Assassinate[edit]

At 10th level, During its first turn, the assassin has advantage on Attack rolls against any creature that hasn't taken a turn. Any hit the assassin scores against a surprised creature is a critical hit.

Extra Attack[edit]

At 11th level, you can attack twice whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Font of Inspiration[edit]

At 13th level, you regain all expended uses of Belly Dancer Inspiration whenever you finish a short rest, in addition to long rests.

Blindsense[edit]

Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or Invisible creature within 10 feet of you.

Evasion[edit]

At 15th level, your instinctive agility lets you dodge out of the way of certain attacks, such as a dragon's breath or the fireball. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and half damage if you fail.

Song of Rest[edit]

Beginning at 17th Level, you can use soothing music or oration to help revitalize your wounded allies during a Short Rest. If you or any friendly creatures who can hear your Performance regain Hit Points by spending Hit Dice at the end of the Short Rest, each of those creatures regains an extra 1d12 Hit Points.

Elusive[edit]

Beginning at 18th level, you are so evasive that attackers rarely gain the upper hand against you. No Attack roll has advantage against you while you aren't Incapacitated.

Stroke of Luck[edit]

At 20th level, you have an uncanny knack for succeeding when you need to. If your Attack misses a target within range, you can turn the miss into a hit. Alternatively, if you fail an ability check, you can treat The D20 roll as a 20.

Once you use this feature, you can't use it again until you finish a short or Long Rest.

Archetypes[edit]

Scimitar Dancer[edit]

The Scimitar Dancer blends their deadly skills with the Scimitar and dancing skills to make a beautiful and deadly show.

At 16th level, When using a Scimitar(s), you may spend 5 heka points to add elemental damage to the sword or one round of combat.

Dance of the Four Elements[edit]

With this archetype you mimic the element with your movements and dance. This allows you to tap into a source of magic to us to control the elements.

When you choose this dance at 3rd level, you learn how to manipulate the four elements in subtle ways. You learn two of the following cantrips: elemental attunement, gust, mold earth, control flames, or shape water. You learn one additional cantrip from this list at 6th, 11th, and 16th level.

Disciple of the Elements

At 3rd level, you learn magical disciplines that harness the power of the four elements. Some disciplines require you to spend heka points when you use it. You learn two elemental disciplines of your choice, which are detailed in the “Elemental Disciplines” section below. You learn two additional elemental disciplines of your choice at 6th, 11th, and 16th level. Each elemental discipline has a minimum Belly Dancer level that you must meet in order to use it.

Whenever you learn a new elemental discipline, you can also replace one elemental discipline that you already know with a different discipline. You cannot replace cantrips for elemental disciplines.

Casting Elemental Spells. Some elemental disciplines allow you to cast spells. To cast one of these spells, you use its casting time and other rules, but you don’t need to provide material components for it.

Adept of the Elements

At 6th level, you can spend additional heka points to increase the level of an elemental discipline spell that you cast, provided that the spell has an enhanced effect at a higher level, as burning hands does. The spell’s level increases by 1 for each additional heka point you spend. For example, if you are a 5th-level monk and use Sweeping Cinder Strike to cast burning hands, you can spend 2 heka points to cast it as a 2nd-level spell (the discipline’s base cost of 1 heka point plus 1). The maximum number of heka points you can spend to cast a spell in this way (including its base heka point cost and any additional heka points you spend to increase its level) is determined by your monk level, as shown in the table below

Monk Levels Maximum Heka Points for a Spell
5th-8th 3
9th-12th 4
13th-16th 5
17th-20th 8
