Bag of buddies[edit]

At first level you gain a bag or other container filled with a representation of the creatures you can summon (ex: pages covered in names, small statues, marbles) these representations cannot be harmed by water, age, mold, or sharp objects unless you so choose, other items placed into the bag do not have this protection. if the bag or its contents are lost you may spend a first level spell slot to summon a new buddy bag. while in possession of your buddy bag it acts as a spellfocus and grants the following features:

Pocket space

up to three creatures you have summoned or created via spellcasting can be stored in the buddy bag as a bonus action. while stored they take up no physical space and are healed to max hp after one hour. creatures stored no longer require concentration, removing a creature from pocket space breaks spell concentration .

Bag o' spirits

you summon A swarm of small spirits that take the form of origami, clockwork, or small birds. you may use A bonus action to move the spirits up to 15 feet. the spirits, at your command can carry an item, repeat a phrase, or allow you to see as if you were where they are.


At first level you become attuned to the threads of magic that stretch between vast distances and different planes. by studying this power you are now able to cast spells. at first level you know 4 spells and 2 cantrips, you learn more as you level up according to the creature keeper table. charisma is your spellcasting ability for your spells. when you gain a level in this class you may choose a spell you know and replace it with another you can learn.

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your charisma modifier

spells known

the spells you know increase as you level up. starting with level one this list shows how many spells you know: 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,14,15,15,16,18,19,19,20,22,22,22


At second level, you find a specific part of summoning to study. Choose between the Book of anatomy, Book of stolen pages, and Book of specialty, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at level 2 and again at , <!list all levels!>

Conjure buds[edit]

At third level your buddy bag has grown connected with the web of magic you use for summoning. choose 3 conjure buds from the list at the back of the class description that you have learned to summon. when you gain a level in this class you may change out which conjure buds you have learned for different ones.

Ability Score Improvement[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.

Book of anatomy[edit]

A creature keeper who studies their own body structure and the way monsters are built

Warped strike

At second level your body becomes influenced by the creatures you summon. when making an unarmed attack you may choose a damage type dealt by a conjuration or evocation spell you know the unarmed strike uses a d6 and the chosen damage type. you may also use the damage type of a conjure bud if you have learned one.

Anatomy research

also at second level you begin to focus your research. you may choose a creature you can see and ask the DM for one damage type or condition it is resistant to, the DM must tell the truth. on a successful history check you may also ask for one damage type or condition it is not resistant or immune to.
