Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Delete this entire page. Whoever thought creating this class was a good idea has no semblance of what balanced even means in D&D. It is much too broken to even be considered for a playable class. With full spellcasting that gets an insane amount of skills, innate spellcasting that allows an 18th level character cast any spell they want whenever they want with no components, no spell list restrictions, and no limitations on how often they can use it, a d12 hit die, insane amounts of features, increases to your ability scores and their maximum given out like candy, great fighting skills, and abilities to INSTANTLY KILL SOMEONE, this should never be played. Delete this entire page and rework every single feature, please. It is just much too powerful.

Deity[edit]

Full of confidence, a human cleric heads into the lair of what is rumored to be a few monsters. With no light to be found, he lights a torch, and is met with a hideous monstrosity only recognizable as a chimera. Before he can even draw his mace, it pounces at him, and he leaps out of harm's way. The torch falls to the ground into a puddle of water and is extinguished. He is surrounded by darkness, and knowing his end is near, he pulls out his holy symbol and prays to his god one last time, hoping for his life to be spared. Suddenly, a blinding flash of light erupts from within the beast, and it is no more. A mysterious trail leads him out of the cavern and back to the village, granting him the title of hero.

A group of adventures are traveling through icy mountains when they are suddenly attacked by a pack of white wolves. With coordinated attacks, they seem to gain the advantage on the party, and no one expected such tactics from mere beasts. Deciding it time to reveal his true power, an elf grabs one of the wolves and throws it several dozen feet away into a nearby chasm. He then lifts a massive boulder from beneath his feet and hurls it at the pack, crushing several of them. The rest scatter, and his comrades look at him with confusion. Shrugging it off as divine intervention, he suggests they get a move on.

The Benefits of Godhood[edit]

Having ascended to a higher state of existence than mere mortals at some point or another, you now have supernatural strength, speed, intelligence, and perhaps great wisdom to share with those you deem worthy. And not only that, your powers have only just begun to grow. You can ascend the Divine Ranks further to gain even greater power, which you could share with others, or keep to yourself, if you so desired. There are a plethora of abilities, perhaps an endless amount, at your disposal, but how you use them is entirely up to you, and others will most certainly desire this power as well.

Creating a Deity[edit]

You should consider the following questions when making your character. How did they attain their godhood, and how did they react when it happened? Did they slowly obtain their powers through a difficult journey, or were they gifted their godhood by another deity? And how have they been affected by their newfound powers, and if so, in what ways? Also, how do they use their powers? Do they share it with mortals, or do they discriminate between certain individuals? Or do they hoard it all to themselves, holding onto the power they worked so hard to obtain? Furthermore, consider how they treat their followers, should they amass a large enough following (or cult).

Obtaining and Losing Godhood[edit]

Should you lose your godhood by some means during your adventure, you must choose another class and begin at 1st level, If you regain your godhood, you forgo whatever class you chose and return to the state you were in when you initially lost this class. You do not carry over experience points or multiclass, the classes simply overwrite each other. You do keep any equipment you had, your ability scores decrease to maximum of 20 while you are mortal, but revert to their previous state when you become a Deity again, you keep spells so long as they are within your spell list, and you lose all of the benefits of your Divine Rank until you become a Deity again. Should you ascend to godhood, you can choose to stop playing your current class and play this one instead, if you so desire, using the previously mentioned rules.

Divine Rank[edit]

Upon reaching the status of a god and transcending your mortality, you've put yourself in a rather perplexing position. You can stay where you are, a mere demigod, or you can gather enough likeminded individuals who believe in your powers to start climbing the ranks of divinity. When creating a Deity, you begin with a Divine Rank of 0. Reaching higher Divine Ranks requires incredible effort and many followers, but provides strong benefits that will aid you in your quest, whatever it may be. Your Divine Rank cannot exceed your Deity level, as detailed at the end of the class description, and the benefits are detailed for each rank at the end of the class description.

Spellcasting[edit]

Overflowing with not only divine but arcane power as well, you can cast cleric spells and spells from an additional spell list based on your Portfolio. The combination of your spell lists will be known as your Deity spell list. You may later receive additional spell lists, depending on your Portfolio. See Chapter 10 for the general rules of spellcasting and Chapter 11 for spell lists.

Cantrips[edit]

At 1st level, you know 2 Cantrips from your Deity spell list. You learn additional Cantrips of your choice at higher levels as shown in the Cantrips known column of the Deity table.

Spells of 1st Level and Higher[edit]

At 1st level, you know six 1st level spells from your Deity spell list. You learn additional spells of your choice at higher levels as shown in the Spells Known column of the Deity table.

Preparing and Casting Spells[edit]

The Deity 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 uses after a long rest.

You do not need to prepare spells, as you draw from your own well of power to cast them. You can cast any spell from your Deity spell list, including ritual spells, given that you have enough spell slots remaining and that you are capable of casting a spell of that level. Additionally, your spells do not harm you, even if you are caught within them.

Spellcasting Ability[edit]

Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your Deity spells. The source of your power is none other than the strength of your very being, and when tempered over time it can be a devastating force. You use Wisdom whenever a Deity spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a Deity spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

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

Innate Spellcasting[edit]

Blessed with incredible magic prowess, you can cast spells at a spell level equal to half your level, rounded down, at will, and you do not need components, including gold, to cast spells.

Divine Charge[edit]

You can summon your own incredible power to bolster an attack with sacred might. Whenever you or a creature within 30 feet of you makes any type attack, you can cause it to do an additional 1d6 damage of the damage type associated with your Portfolio. This damage is increased to 2d6 at 5th level, 3d6 at 9th level, 4d6 at 13th level, and 5d6 at 17th level. Alternatively, rather than dealing damage, you can restore hit points to an ally using the same damage dice. You can use this feature a number of time equal to your Wisdom score plus your Divine Rank, and regain uses after a short or long rest.

Portfolio[edit]

Upon becoming a Deity, you must decide what your Portfolio is. Choose between Power, Nature, Sound, Decay, Knowledge, Life, Death, or Unknown, all detailed near the end of the class description. You can expand upon your Portfolio and what exactly you control, but this determines the general context of what it is. Your choice grants you features at 1st level, and again at 3rd, 7th, 10th, 15th, and 18th level.

Resplendent Form[edit]

Perfection is an understatement when referring to your magnificence. Beginning at 2nd level, your ability scores now have a maximum of 22, if they are not already higher, and they all increase by 1. Additionally, you gain advantage on saving throws against conditions and your movement speed increase in 5 feet. At 6th level, your ability score maximums increase to 24 if they are not already higher and increase by 1. At 11th level, you can take a additional reaction every round, your ability score maximums increase to 26 if they are not already higher and increase by 1, and at 17th level you can take an additional action every round, your ability scores no longer have a maximum and increase by 1.

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 its maximum using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Upon reaching 5th level, whenever you make an attack, you can make an additional attack as part of the same action. You can make a third attack at 11th level, and a fourth attack at 18th level.

Heavenly Veil[edit]

Divine aura surrounds you like a protective shield, and it seems to affect your allies as well. Starting at 5th level, you gain an aura that grants you and allies within 30 feet of you +1 AC and a +1 bonus on all saving throws and ability checks. Furthermore, you and allies within range restore hit points equal to your Deity level plus your Divine Rank at the end of a short rest so long as they are still within range.

Grasp of Salvation[edit]

With you by their side, the thought of defeat doesn't even cross your allies' minds. Beginning at 9th level, whenever you or an ally within 30ft is attacked by any sort of attack, you can use your reaction to reduce the damage by an amount equal to your Deity level plus your Wisdom modifier and Divine Rank. Additionally, you can expend a use of your Divine Charge to make an attack, cast a spell, or use your Divine Charge (at the cost of a second use) against the attacker, so long as they are within range. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain uses after a long rest.

Legendary Presence[edit]

Your very being can only be described as "awesome". Starting at 11th level, you gain new abilities. You can perform the following actions:

Legendary Offense
Upon failing an attack or spell attack roll, you can choose to succeed instead.
Legendary Resistance
Upon failing a saving throw, you can choose to succeed instead.
Legendary Boon
When a creature within 60ft of you fails an attack roll, spell attack roll, saving throw, or ability check, you can choose to make it succeed instead.
Legendary Failure
When a creature within 60ft of you succeeds an attack roll, spell attack roll, saving throw, or ability check, you can choose to make it fail instead.
Legendary Action
During any turn, you can make an attack, cast a spell, or use Divine Charge on a creature within range of you. Costs two uses of Legendary Presence, and you cannot do so more than once per turn.
Multiattack
You can make three attacks and cast one spell with a casting time of one action or cast two spells with a casting time of one bonus action or use Divine Charge. Costs two uses of Legendary Presence, and you cannot do so more than once per round.

You can use this feature once, being unable to do so until you finish a long rest.

You have uses of Legendary Presence equel to your wisdom modifier+ your Divine Rank.

Judgement[edit]

You hold the lives of mortals in your hand, and can strip it away in an instant should they cross you. Upon reaching 13th level, whenever you reduce a creature to 30 hit points or less, you can choose to instantly kill it instead. This is increased to 100 hit points at 20th level. Additionally, you gain a bonus to attack and damage rolls equal to your Divine Rank, and whenever you make an attack or cast a spell, you can expend a use of your Divine Charge to ensure that your attack or spell hits and deals maximum damage.

Once you do this, you can't do it again until you finish a long rest.

Almighty Blessing[edit]

You are truly powerful, and in recognition of their service to you, you are willing to share a small portion of your power with you allies. When you reach 17th level, you can use your action to give you and creatures within 30 feet of you gain advantage on attack rolls and spell rolls, and a +4 to proficiency bonuses. Additionally, you can grant allies a bonus to attack and damage rolls equal to your Wisdom modifier until the beginning of your next turn.

You can do this a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Omnipotence[edit]

Having obtained limitless power, nothing is beyond your control now. Once you reach 20th level, you can create or destroy life on a whim. If the creature you are targeting is not a deity, you can remove it from existence, regardless of any resistances or immunities it may have. This disregards anything that may prevent it from dying or protect it from such an act, unless it was made specifically to protect it from the wrath of a god. Conversely, you are capable of granting life as well. You can create a creature who's size is no larger than Large within 60ft of you. You can decide its race, alignment, etc., and whether it is a loyal subject of yours, or is free to do as it pleases. It does not gain any equipment or spells unless you bestow them to it upon creation. Additionally, creatures you create will spread your gospel, speaking of your magnificence, even if they are not loyal subjects. However, they do not count as worshippers towards increasing your Divine Rank. You can only do this a number of times equal to your Divine Rank, and regain expended uses after one month. Furthermore, when you make an attack or cast a spell, you can choose to cause it to affect all creatures within 60ft of the creature, and if you attack using a Divine Charge, the damage is maximized, creatures within 60ft of the target recieve half of the damage, and all allies within 60ft of you are healed for half of the damage dealt. Finally, if you are reduced below half of your hit point maximum, you explode with divine energy, dealing 8d10 damage associated with your Portfolio to all hostile creatures within 60ft of you. This cannot occur more than once in the same round.

Power[edit]

The world revolves around power, whether it is the strength of an individual or an entire kingdom. Knowing this, you sought to attain greater power, and after obtaining it are in the position to protect the weak or destroy the strong. You control the Slashing, Piercing, and Bludgeoning damage types in the Power Portfolio.

Physical Prowess

Truly, your strength is something to behold. You can wield weapons with the heavy and two-handed properties with one hand, and you can wield weapons with the versatile property with one hand as though you were using two hands. Furthermore, you can use Huge weapons this way without disadvantage, and you deal an additional 2d12 damage when making a melee attack while using your Strength modifier.

Forged in Steel

Being an invincible warrior has proven to be quite useful on your journey. At 3rd level, you gain immunity to the frightened condition. Additionally, your current hit point maximum increases by an amount equal four times your level. Whenever you gain a level thereafter, your hit point maximum increases by an additional 4 hit points.

Shoulder the World

The weight of the world is nothing for your mighty body. Beginning at 7th level, whenever you attempt to grapple a creature who's size is no larger that two sizes larger than yours, you have advantage on the roll, they have disadvantage when attempting to escape, and can crush them in your grip, dealing 3d12 bludgeoning damage at the start of your turn every turn you hold them. You can also throw them a number of feet equal to your Strength modifier x your Deity level, dealing 4d12 bludgeoning damage on impact plus any damage they may have sustained from the fall.

Titan's Disposition

You embody the essence of a colossus. Starting at 10th level, you are treated as though you were two sizes larger. Additionally, you can plunge your hand into the earth below you and toss a boulder at your foes within 120ft of you, dealing 5d10 bludgeoning damage in a 45ft area. Alternatively, you can tear a spear out of the ground and throw it at a creature, dealing 8d10 piercing damage. The creature is impaled, dragged back up to 30ft, and is attached to any wall it collides with and must succeed a DC12 + your Strength modifier Strength save to free itself or be unable to move.

Furious Wrath

Angering a god is never a good idea, especially when that god is you. Upon reaching 15th level, you can call upon your inner wells of divine fury. You gain the following benefits for 1 minute: resistance to all damage, a +10 bonus on all attack, spell, and damage rolls, a +3 bonus to AC, and an extra attack when you take the attack action. You can do this a number of times equal to half of your proficiency bonus, rounded up, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Embodiment of Power

Gazing upon you evokes the majesty of true power. Once you reach 18th level, your Strength increases by half of your Strength score, rounded up, your Strength cannot be lowered by any means save for losing your godhood, and you can wield weapons of any size you are capable of wielding with one hand without suffering disadvantage while gaining the maximum benefits. Furthermore, whenever you make a melee attack against a creature, you deal an additional 3d12 + your Strength modifier damage, and if the creature the same size or smaller than you it is knocked prone.

Nature[edit]

The forces of the world can only be described as calamitous. Entire civilizations cave in the face of such disasters, and you control when and where they strike. You control fire, cold, and lightning damage types in the Nature Portfolio.

Walking Disaster

Your very being causes the earth to quake, and the skies to tremble. Whenever you make an attack or cast a spell, and the damage type is one shared by your Portfolio, you can choose an additional effect to occur.

Volcanic Eruption - A pillar of earth erupts from beneath the target and spews molten rocks, dealing 2d10 fire damage to the target and creatures within 15ft of it.
Breath of Winter - Icy wind blasts forward within a 30ft cone in front of you, dealing 2d10 cold damage.
Lightning Spear - A javelin formed from pure electricity blasts forward, dealing 2d10 lightning damage and stunning the target.


Wildfire

The most primal fear has and will always be fire, and you now control it. Starting at 3rd level, you can cause a wall of flames to erupt in an area equal to your Wisdom modifier x your Deity level within 300ft of you for 10 minutes. These flames deal 2d12 fire damage to any number of creatures of your choice, and ignite creatures and objects, dealing an additional 1d10 fire at the start of their turn every turn. The area will double in size every minute, so long as there are flammable obejects. Creatures can be extinguished by using an action or being submerged in water, and the damage is increased to 4d12 and 2d10 at 6th level, 6d12 and 3d10 at 11th level, and 8d12 and 4d10 at 16th level. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a short or long rest.

Frozen Tempest

Life is susceptible to the chilling grasp of winter, and whether or not to grant such a cruel destiny is your choice. Beginning at 7th level, you can create a blizzard in an area equal to your Wisdom modifier x your Deity level within 300ft of you for 1 minute, dealing 6d12 cold damage to any number of creatures of your choice and halving the move speed of the victims caught within. Creatures who end their turn within take damage again at the beginning of their next turn, have their move speed reduced to 5ft, and are Blinded and Deafened until they end their turn outside of the blizzard. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after long rest.

Heavenly Storm

The breath of the skies is volatile, granting light to people one day, and tearing the land asunder the next. Such disasters are truly capable of great destruction. At 10th level, you can call upon the wrath of the heavens, and can do so in one of two ways.

Lightning Bolt - Strike all creatures of your choice within 300ft of you with a bolt of lightning, dealing 6d12 lightning damage and stunning them until the end of their next turn.
Tornado - You can create a tornado whose size is your Wisdom modifier x half of your Deity level and twice as tall, and place it anywhere within 300ft of you. Creatures within (half of its size)ft excluding you are dragged inside for an amount of turns equal to half of your proficiency bonus, rounded down. They take 3d10 slashing damage and 5d12 lightning damage, and at the end of the duration are flung outside the top of it. Creatures capable of flight must succeed a DC12 + your Divine Rank Dexterity save or be unable to get their bearings in the air and fly on a failed save.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Fissure

The earth is yours to shape. When you reach 15th level, you can cause an endlessly deep fissure who's size is your Deity level ft by your Wisdom modifier x your Divine Rank (minimum 1)ft to appear anywhere on the ground within 300ft of you, and it closes after 1 minute. Creatures within range must make DC15 + half your Deity level, rounded down, Dexterity save or fall within. Creatures caught within it when it closes are never seen again, trapped for all eternity. If a creature is too large fall in but is partially trapped inside, it will take 10d12 bludgeoning damage at the beginning of its every turn until it succeeds a DC 15 + your Wisdom modifier Strength save. You can use this feature a number of times equal to half of your Wisdom modifier, rounded up, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Elemental Incarnate

You can only be perceived as a raging inferno of the elements, wreaking havoc on those unworthy of mercy. Once you reach 18th level, you gain immunity to fire, cold, and lightning damage and your damage for those damage types is maximized, then doubled. Furthermore, whenever a friendly creature within 60ft of you is damaged by one of those damage types, they instead take 0 points of damage.

Sound[edit]

Many creatures rely on sound more than they do with sight, and without it they would likely perish. However, it can be just as devastating a weapon as it can a blessing to those without sight. You control the Thunder damage type in the Sound Portfolio.

Sonic Influence

With sound being one of the driving forces in existence, you can control a number of things utilizing it. You gain an additional 30ft of all types of movement speed you possess, and this increases newly obtained movement speeds. Additionally, your movement speed cannot be reduced by any means and you cannot be targeted by opportunity attacks.

Heavenly Haste

You can now break the sound barrier to cause devastating damage. When you reach 3rd level, you can dash in a straight line your Deity level x your Wisdom modifier ft long. Creatures within 30ft of you receive 3d10 thunder damage. If you have moved at least half of your total move speed, it instead deals 6d10 thunder damage, knocks prone, and Deafens. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Seraphic Song

The sound of your voice can soothe the spirit just as easily as it can cripple the body. Beginning at 7th level, you can sing a song that affects all creatures within 60ft of you that can hear you. The following conditions take effect depending on whether or not the creature is friendly towards you:

Friendly Creature - +3 AC, +3 bonus to all rolls, advantage on all rolls, move speed is doubled
Hostile Creature - -3 AC, -3 penalty to all rolls, disadvantage on all rolls, move speed is halved

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Undulating Blast

The volume of your voice varies depending on your mood, and so does the risk to the surrounding area. Starting at 10th level, you can cause your voice to spike to unbearable levels, dealing 8d10 thunder damage to all creatures in front of you in a 90ft cone. Creatures damaged by this are deafened, and suffer disadvantage on attack rolls, spell attacks, ability checks, and saving throws until the end of your next turn. Objects that are Large or smaller can be damaged using this feature. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Sonic Agony

You voice heralds doom, and so does your servants'. Upon reaching 15th level, whenever you make any sort of attack, you can screech as part of that action, dealing an additional 5d12 thunder damage. Furthermore, allies within 60ft of you can screech as part of any sort of attack as well, but only deal an additional 2d12 thunder damage. Finally, whenever you damage a creature with thunder damage, that creature becomes vulnerable to thunder damage for 1 minute.

Roar of Silence

You cannot be heard, as what you say can no longer be comprehended by mere mortals, save for destruction. At 18th level, you can no longer be understood by or hear others, unless you desire to, and your sound-based attacks now affect creatures who cannot hear. You deal maximum damage with thunder damage, and creatures are deafened when struck by it. You also gain immunity to thunder damage and the deafened condition, your move speed is doubled, and whenever you make an attack using thunder damage, the attack succeeds. Finally, you can roar out in a 90ft area, centered on you. Creatures within the radius take 10d12 thunder damage and are knocked prone, or are knocked unconscious if it reduces them to half of their hit point maximum or less. You can do this a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Decay[edit]

All things inevitably fall in the face of deadly toxins or corrosive acids, suffering a terrible, gruesome fate. Being the patron of such horrors, you decide whether victims live or die in an instant, or over agonizing days. You control the Poison and Acid damage types with the Decay Portfolio.

Toxic Touch

Your very touch can be lethal. Whenever you make contact with a living creature, you can deal 2d10 poison damage. The creature takes this damage at the beginning of its every turn until it succeeds a DC10 + your Deity level Constitution save. This includes attacks made with melee weapons and touch based spells. Additionally, you are immune to poison and acid damage, and allies within 60ft of you share this immunity as well.

Venom Spray

You can spray a potent venom from within, capable of felling even the most resilient of foes. Starting at 3rd level, you can target a number of living creatures equal to your Wisdom modifier within 60ft of you and spit venom at them. They take 3d10 poison damage, and an additional 1d10 poison damage at the beginning of their every turn for 1 minute. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier + your Divine Rank, and regain expended uses after a short or long rest.

Acid Rain

The very sky pours corrosive acid that melts through whatever it touches. Beginning at 7th level, you can summon a cloud that covers a 300ft area. Acid rains from the sky, dealing 4d10 acid damage to hostile creatures and lowering their AC by 2 (to a minimum of 10) at the beginning of every turn they are inside of range for 1 minute, refreshing the duration upon receiving damage. Additionally, any water source that is no larger than a lake that was partially within range becomes tainted and becomes an acid version of what it once was, dealing 4d10 acid damage should a creature make contact, or 8d10 acid damage if they become fully submerged. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Decrepit Visage

When creatures gaze upon your face, they see one of horror, and you seem to have attained a ghastly presence at one point or another. Once you reach 10th level, creatures who can see you have disadvantage against your Intimidation checks, and you gain a bonus to them equal to your Wisdom modifier. Additionally, whenever you succeed an Intimidation check, you can cause acid to ooze from you face, paralyzing the creature with fear until the end of your next turn and forcing them to make a DC12 + your Deity level Wisdom check or be frightened until they succeed. They can repeat the save at the beginning of their turn. On a success, they cannot be affected by this feature again for 1 hour. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier, and regain expended uses after a long rest.

Touch of Death
