Deprived[edit]

Unclothed, origin unknown. Has nothing to fight with, except life-affirming flesh.

Unclothed And Unbound[edit]

The sole advantage of the Deprived is the flexibility that they offer, able to become any kind of character equally well.

Variant Rule: Unbound Origin[edit]

When creating a deprived, you can forego the standard process of determining ability scores (rolling, point buy, standard array, etc.) and instead take a score of 10 for all abilities (not including racial bonuses).

Soul Strengthening[edit]

As a deprived, you were born with a sickly spirit, you must become stronger by feasting on the souls of your enemies and taking their experience for yourself. Every level grants you a limited number of Soul Points, which can be exchanged for Soul Boons (Found on the Soul Boon List) which can be used to strengthen oneself or gain new class features. Each Boon costs a different number of Soul Points, so they must be spent wisely. Soul points can be saved up to unlock Specialized and Greater Boons. You can spend your soul points at the end of a short or long rest.

Spellcasting[edit]

You posses the potential of feats of magic yet untapped. At 1st level, you posses no Cantrips, Spells or Spell Slots; however, you can acquire spells from any spell list via Soul Strengthening. You also have access to unique Deprived spells available on the Deprived Spells list.

Unless stated otherwise, all expended spell slots return at the end of a long rest.

The spellcasting ability for your spells is determined by the spell list that it came from.

Choose a type of favored enemy: beasts, fey, humanoids, monstrosities, or undead. You gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with weapon attacks against creatures of the chosen type. Additionally, you have advantage on Wisdom (Survival) checks to track your favored enemies, as well as on Intelligence checks to recall information about them.

Action Surge. Restricted. Prerequisite: Level 2. Cost: 10 SP[edit]

You can push yourself beyond your normal limits for a moment. On your turn, you can take one additional action on top of your regular action and a possible bonus action.

Once you use this feature, you must finish a short or long rest before you can use it again. Starting at 17th level, you can use it twice before a rest, but only once on the same turn.

Sage's Tome. Restricted. Cost: 6 SP[edit]

When you take this Boon, you create a spellbook containing six 1st-level wizard spells of your choice.

The spells that you add to your spellbook as you gain levels reflect the arcane research you conduct on your own, as well as intellectual breakthroughs you have had about the nature of the multiverse. You might find other spells during your adventures. You could discover a spell recorded on a scroll in an evil wizard's chest, for example, or in a dusty tome in an ancient library.

Copying a Spell into the Book. When you find a wizard spell of 1st level or higher, you can add it to your spellbook if it is of a level for which you have spell slots and if you can spare the time to decipher and copy it. Copying a spell into your spellbook involves reproducing the basic form of the spell, then deciphering the unique system of notation used by the wizard who wrote it. You must practice the spell until you understand the sounds or gestures required, then transcribe it into your spellbook using your own notation. For each level of the spell, the process takes 2 hours and costs 50 gp. The cost represents material components you expend as you experiment with the spell to master it, as well as the fine inks you need to record it. Once you have spent this time and money, you can prepare the spell just like your other spells.

Replacing the Book. You can copy a spell from your own spellbook into another book-for example, if you want to make a backup copy of your spellbook. This is just like copying a new spell into your spellbook, but faster and easier, since you understand your own notation and already know how to cast the spell. You need spend only 1 hour and 10 gp for each level of the copied spell. If you lose your spellbook, you can use the same procedure to transcribe the spells that you have prepared into a new spellbook. Filling out the remainder of your spellbook requires you to find new spells to do so, as normal. For this reason, many wizards keep backup spellbooks in a safe place.

The Book's Appearance. Your spellbook is a unique compilation of spells, with its own decorative flourishes and margin notes. It might be a plain, functional leather volume that you received as a gift from your master, a finely bound gilt-edged tome you found in an ancient library or even a loose collection of notes scrounged together after you lost your previous spellbook in a mishap.

Prepared Spells[edit]

You prepare the list of wizard spells that are available for you to cast. To do so, choose a number of wizard spells from your spellbook equal to your Intelligence modifier + your deprived level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. Prepared spells do not count against your number of known spells.

For example, if you're a 3rd-level deprived, and you have 4 1st-1evel and two 2nd-level spell slots. With an Intelligence of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination, chosen from your spellbook. If you prepare the 1st-level spell Magic Missile, you can cast it using a 1st-level or a 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 wizard spells requires time spent studying your spellbook and memorizing the incantiations and gestures you must make to cast the spell: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your prepared spells, since you learn your spells through dedicated study and memorization. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a prepared spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Ritual Casting[edit]

You can cast a wizard spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell in your spellbook. You don't need to have the spell prepared.

Arcane Recovery[edit]

You have learned to regain some of your magical energy by studying your spellbook. Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level that is equal to or less than half your deprived level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.

For example, if you're a 4th-level deprived, you can recover up to two levels worth of spell slots. You can recover either a 2nd-level spell slot or two 1st-level spell slots.

Sage's Knowledge. Prerequisite: Level 2. Cost 1 SP[edit]

You can add a wizard spell of your choice to your spellbook. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

You can take this Sub-Boon twice per level.

Spell Secrets. Prerequisite: Level 2. Cost: 5 SP[edit]

You master an arcane secret uncovered by your extensive studies.

When you cast a prepared spell with a spell slot and the spell deals acid, cold, fire, force, lightning, necrotic, radiant, or thunder damage, you can substitute that damage type with one other type from that list (you can change only one damage type per casting of a spell). You replace one energy type for another by altering the spell’s formula as you cast it.

When you cast a prepared spell with a spell slot and the spell requires a saving throw, you can change the saving throw from one ability score to another of your choice. Once you change a saving throw in this way, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest.

While the Spell Secrets feature offers increased versatility, at the table its effects can be difficult to spot by the other players. If you’re playing a savant, take a moment to describe how you alter your spells. Think of a signature change your character is particularly proud of. Be inventive, and make the game more fun for everyone by playing up the sudden, unexpected tricks you character can employ. For example, a Fireball transformed to require a Strength save might become a sphere of burning rock that shatters and slams into its target. A Charm Person that requires a Constitution save might take the form of a vaporous narcotic that alters the target’s mood.

Power Within. Restricted. Cost: 10 SP[edit]

In battle, you fight with primal ferocity. On your turn, you can enter a rage as a bonus action.

While raging, you gain the following benefits if you aren't wearing heavy armor:

• You have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
• When you make a melee weapon attack using Strength, you gain a bonus to the damage roll that increases as you gain levels as a deprived, as shown below.
+2 at Level 1
+3 at Level 10
+4 at Level 13
• You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

If you are able to cast spells, you can't cast them or concentrate on them while raging.

while raging, you take 1 point of damage at the end of your turn.

Your rage lasts for 1 minute. It ends early if you are knocked unconscious or if your turn ends and you haven't attacked a hostile creature since your last turn or taken damage since then. You can also end your rage on your turn as a bonus action.

Raging costs 1 ember.

Your rage can be further upgraded by spending Soul Points.

Relentless Power. prerequisite: Level 11. Cost: 6 SP[edit]

Your rage can keep you fighting despite grievous wounds. Raging no longer damages you, and if you drop to 0 hit points while you're raging and don't die outright, you can make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw. If you succeed, you drop to 1 hit point instead.

Each time you use this feature after the first, the DC increases by 5. When you finish a short or long rest, the DC resets to 10.

Persistent Power. Prerequisite: Level 15. Cost: 8 SP[edit]

Your rage is so fierce that it ends early only if you fall unconscious or if you choose to end it.

Karma. Restricted. Prerequisite: Level 2. Cost: 8 SP[edit]

Your training allows you to harness the mystic energy of Karma. Your access to this energy is represented by your embers.

You can spend these points to fuel various karma features. You start knowing three such features: Flurry of Blows, Patient Defense, and Step of the Wind. You can learn more karma features by spending Soul Points.

Some of your karma features require your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature's effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

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

Flurry of Blows[edit]

Immediately after you take the Attack action on your turn, you can spend 1 ember to make two unarmed strikes as a bonus action.

Patient Defense[edit]

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

Step of the Wind[edit]

You can spend 1 ember to take the Disengage or Dash action as a bonus action on your turn, and your jump distance is doubled for the turn.

Deflect Missiles. Prerequisite: Level 3. Cost: 5 SP[edit]

You can use your reaction to deflect or catch the missile when you are hit by a ranged weapon attack. When you do so, the damage you take from the attack is reduced by 1d10 + your Dexterity modifier + your deprived level.

If you reduce the damage to 0, you can catch the missile if it is small enough for you to hold in one hand and you have at least one hand free. If you catch a missile in this way, you can spend 1 ember to make a ranged attack with a range of 20/60 using the weapon or piece of ammunition you just caught, as part of the same reaction. You make this attack with proficiency, regardless of your weapon proficiencies.

Stunning Strike. Prerequisite: Level 5. Cost 5 SP[edit]

You can interfere with the flow of karma in an opponent's body. When you hit another creature with a melee weapon attack, you can spend 1 ember to attempt a stunning strike. The target must succeed on a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a a creature takes the same amount of damage inflicted on yourself while the aura was active, or half as much on a success.

Karmic Justice. Prerequisite: Level 7. Cost 5 SP.[edit]

You absorb the negative karma of your foes and turn it back against them. You can expend 1 ember to wrap yourself in karmic energy for 1 minute (or 2 combat turns). At the end of the duration (or end of the second turn), all creatures within a 5 foot radius must make a constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes thunder damage equal to the amount of damage inflicted on yourself while the karmic energy was active and is pushed 10 feet away from you. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage and isn’t pushed.

Soul Inspiration. Restricted. Cost: 8 SP[edit]

You can inspire others through channeling the raw essence of the soul. To do so, you use a bonus action on your turn to choose one creature other than yourself within 60 feet of you who can hear you. That creature gains one Soul Inspiration die, a d6.

Once within the next 10 minutes, the creature can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes. The creature can wait until after it rolls the d20 before deciding to use the Soul Inspiration die, but must decide before the DM says whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Soul Inspiration die is rolled, it is lost. A creature can have only one Soul Inspiration die at a time.

Using this feature consumes an ember.

Greater Inspiration. Prerequisite: Level 5. Cost 5 SP[edit]

Your Soul Inspiration die is increased to a d8.

You can take this Sub-Boon again at 10th and 15th Level, increasing it to a d10, and then a d12.

Metamagic. Restricted. Prerequisite: Level 3. Cost: 8 SP[edit]

You gain the ability to twist your spells to suit your needs. You gain two of the following Metamagic options of your choice.

You can use only one Metamagic option on a spell when you cast it, unless otherwise noted.

Careful Spell

When you cast a spell that forces other creatures to make a saving throw, you can protect some of those creatures from the spell's full force. To do so, you spend 1 ember and choose a number of those creatures up to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one creature). A chosen creature automatically succeeds on its saving throw against the spell.

Distant Spell

When you cast a spell that has a range of 5 feet or greater, you can spend 1 ember to double the range of the spell.

When you cast a spell that has a range of touch, you can spend 1 ember to make the range of the spell 30 feet.

Empowered Spell

When you roll damage for a spell, you can spend 1 ember to reroll a number of the damage dice up to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one). You must use the new rolls.

You can use Empowered Spell even if you have already used a different Metamagic option during the casting of the spell.

Extended Spell

When you cast a spell that has a duration of 1 minute or longer, you can spend 1 ember to double its duration, to a maximum duration of 24 hours.

Heightened Spell

When you cast a spell that forces a creature to make a saving throw to resist its effects, you can spend 3 embers to give one target of the spell disadvantage on its first saving throw made against the spell.

Quickened Spell

When you cast a spell that has a casting time of 1 action, you can spend 2 embers to change the casting time to 1 bonus action for this casting.

Subtle Spell

When you cast a spell, you can spend 1 ember to cast it without any somatic or verbal components.

Twinned Spell

When you cast a spell that targets only one creature and doesn't have a range of self, you can spend a number of ember equal to the spell's level to target a second creature in range with the same spell (1 ember if the spell is a cantrip). To be eligible for Twinned Spell, a spell must be incapable of targeting more than one creature at the spell's current level.

Extra Magic. Prerequisite: Level 10. Cost: 3 SP[edit]

You gain 1 more Metamagic option of your choice. You can take this Sub-Boon again at 17th Level.

Faerûn Flash Sword. Restricted. Prerequisite: Level 3. Cost: 10 SP[edit]

You can use your action to create a flash weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this melee weapon takes each time you create it. You are proficient with it while you wield it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Your flash weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die.

You can transform one magic weapon into your flash weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest.

You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your flash weapon thereafter. You can't affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your flash weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.

Improved Flash Sword. Cost: 10 SP[edit]

You can use any flash weapon as a spellcasting focus for your spells.

In addition, the weapon gains a +1 bonus to its attack and damage rolls, unless it is a magic weapon that already has a bonus to those rolls.

Finally, the weapon you conjure can be a shortbow, longbow, light crossbow, or heavy crossbow.

You can take this Sub-Boon again at 9th and 15th level to increase the damage bonus to +2 and +3 respectively.

Old Moonlight. Prerequisite: Level 5. cost: 10 SP[edit]

You can choose to consume an ember and launch a penetrating wave of magical energy from out of the blade.
