Destructive Magic[edit]

At 1st level, depending on the archetype that you choose, you gain access to different ways to cause destruction and death.

With The Soldier archetype, you gain access to the Destructive Fist. This does damage equal to the damage shown on the Destructive Fist column plus your Intelligence modifier when you take the attack action. You can target as many creatures as you have complete arms when you use this attack.

With The Demolitions archetype, you gain access to the Destructive Blast. This does damage equal to the damage shown on the Destructive Blast column plus your Intelligence modifier when you take the attack action. Your blast affects the a number of creatures in a radius of five feet of a point you choose within fifty feet of you.

With The Sniper archetype, you gain access to the Destructive Bolt. This does damage equal to the damage shown on the Destructive Bolt column plus your Intelligence modifier when you take the attack action. Your bolt has a range of 100 feet but you can only target one creature per attack.

Destructive Magican Archetype[edit]

At 1st level, you can choose one of the three destructive magician archetypes. You gain additional features at 5th, 9th, 13th and 17th levels.

At 2nd level, you know four cantrips of your choice from the destructive magician spell list (Below). You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Destructive Magician table.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Destructive Magician 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 Spell Slots when you finish a Long Rest.

You prepare the list of destructive magician Spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the destructive magician spell list. When you do so, choose a number of destructive magician Spells equal to your Intelligence modifier + your destructive magician level (minimum of one spell). The Spells must be of a level for which you have Spell Slots.

You can change your list of prepared Spells when you finish a Long Rest.

Spellcasting Ability

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your spells, since the power of your spells relies on your mental ability. 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 spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 10 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Spellcasting Focus

You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your spells.

Magical Enhancement[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain expertise in the Athletics skill. You can use your strength modifier instead of your dexterity modifier for acrobatics checks. You can also use your strength modifier instead of your charisma modifier for intimidation checks.

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]

At 6th level, whenever you make the attack action, you can make an additional attack. Your second attack will be using your strength modifier for both the attack and damage rolls.

Hidden Aspect[edit]

At 7th level, you can add an additional damage die (one lower than the one that is used by the destructive magic) on your destructive magic attacks. The damage is either necrotic, radiant, psychic or force.

Hunter's Instinct[edit]

At 10th level, you gain the ability to know when you have knocked an enemy to hit points that are equal to or lower than your strength modifier. You can use your reaction to move up to your movement speed towards them and make an additional attack as a free action to attempt to kill them.

Know One's Self[edit]

At 11th level, you can use your reaction to negate the damage of any spell that you know, when it is used on yourself. You can you this feature a number of times equal to half of your strength modifier (rounded down).

Signature Spell[edit]

At 14th level, you gain the ability to specialise in one way to cause the most destruction possible. Choose Destructive Wave, Harm or Disintegrate as your signature spell. You can treat this spell as though it is of seventh level and you can reroll any '1's you roll on the damage dice. You can use this spell a number of times equal to half of your intelligence modifier (rounded down).

Signature Immunity[edit]

At 15th level, you can use your signature spell to give yourself temporary hit points equal to your destructive magic damage. If you use this feature when you have no signature spells left, then you waste your entire turn.

Unlimited Power[edit]

At 18th level, you can spend two uses of signature spell to cast the spell as at 8th level. Alternatively, you can trade in three uses of signature spell to cast the spell at 9th level. When you use this ability, you can double the extra damage dice that you gain from using it past the level it was originally from.

Ultimate Devastation[edit]

At 20th level, you have discovered the ultimate way to increase your destruction. Your Intelligence and Strength maximum both increase by 4.

The Soldier[edit]

At 1st level, you get a hit points change. Hit Dice: 1d10 per Destructive Magician level Hit Points at 1st Level: 10 + Constitution modifier Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d10 (or 6) + Constitution modifier per Destructive Magician level after 1st

Unarmoured Defence[edit]

At 1st level, if you are not wearing armour (Not including shields), your armour class is 10 + your Strength modifier + half of your Intelligence modifier rounded down. At 10th level, your armour class increases by 2, and if you wear armour, your armour class increases by 1 instead.

Punches of Steel[edit]

At 5th level, you gain the ability to double the damage rolls on one of your Destructive Fist attacks. To use this feature, you must say so before your attack roll and even if you fail the attack roll, you use up one use of the feature. You can use this feature twice per long rest.

The Ultimate Weapon[edit]

At 9th level, you can make a destructive fist attack with your head in addition to your normal attacks. It deals twice as much damage, yet you also take recoil damage equal to the half of the damage that you deal (including any excess damage if it take the enemy below 0 hit points).

At 13th level, you have developed the ability to add your physical strength to your damage and you gain an additional use of Punches of Steel.

Double and Halve[edit]

At 17th level, you can halve your armour class (rounded down) and gain vulnerability to all damage. In addition to this, you can double both your attack and damage rolls and make twice as many attacks on your turn. This feature lasts for a number of turns equal to half of your strength modifier (rounded down). You can only use this feature once per long rest.

The Demolitions[edit]

At 1st level, you get a hit points change. Hit Dice: 1d6 per Destructive Magician level Hit Points at 1st Level: 6 + Constitution modifier Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d6 (or 4) + Constitution modifier per Destructive Magician level after 1st

Hunter's Patience[edit]

At 9th level, you can choose to move last in a combat and on your turn, you can make three shots, (including your normal attack and extra attack) at targets of your choice with advantage on both the attack and damage rolls.
