You gain an additional spell at 5th level, another at 11th, and one more at 17th. Whenever you gain a level in this class, you can exchange one spell with any other spell, as long as that spell's level is less or equal to half your Bouncer level (rounded up).

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Poker Face[edit]

At 2nd level, you have the visage of a steel wall. Any creature has disadvantage on any insight check against you. In addition, you can make yourself completely unreadable in combat. As a bonus action, you can choose one creature that you can see. That creature has disadvantage on the next melee attack roll it makes against you.

Bouncer Archetype[edit]

At 3rd level, you chose a Bouncer Archetype. Choose between Fortress or Classy, both detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level, and again at 6th level, 10th level, and 14th level.

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]

Starting at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the attack action on your turn.

Starting at 3rd level, you can use an action to gain temporary hit points equal to half your Bouncer level + your Constitution modifier. These last until the start of your next turn. At 5th level, when you gain Extra Attack feature, you can replace any number of your attacks with a use of this feature. If you use this feature two times in the same turn, you gain double the amount of temporary hit points you would normally get.


At 6th level, whenever a creature within 5 feet of you is targeted by an attack you can use your reaction to become the new target of that attack.
