Chromatic Heritage[edit]

You are born as a drafter and can take light and make it a physical object. Most often this is manifested as projectiles. There are 7 draftable colors, not counting those that are hidden outside the spectrum, these include Sub-Red, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Super-Violet. The benefits of these colors (and downsides) are listed at the end of this class description. You determine whether you're a (2)Mono-Chrome, (3)Bi-Chrome, (4)Three Color Poly-Chrome, (5)Four Color Poly-Chrome, (6)Five Color Poly-Chrome, (7)Six Color Poly-Chrome, or a (8)Full Spectrum Poly-Chrome by rolling a 1d8 re-roll 1s. Roll a d20 with a DC check of 10, advantage if character is female and disadvantage if character is male, this determines if you're a Superchromat, allowing you to make perfect Yellow the strongest Held Luxin, rules for this are laid out in Yellow. As a Four Color Poly-Chrome or higher Drafting costs double due to the accidental absorption of light

Spectacles[edit]

You must strain out light from the world around you to Draft, the best way to do this is to wear Spectacles. You start off with Spectacles for whatever light you Draft, switching between these is an interaction. If one is broken or stolen you can spend 100 GP (Adjust if necessary DMs') to make a new set.

Drafting Points[edit]

As a level 1 drafter you can cast as many spells in a day as you want, you do run the risk of drafting sickness when you draft over 100 points in a battle,but you do have a finite amount of casting for your character has minimum 10,000 drafting points, plus 10d100. This might seems like too much but when you expend all of these points you break your Halo. There is a unique list of spells for each color. As a male character add 1d100. Your Drafting ability is 10+Wisdom Mod+Con Mod and Draft mod is Wis Mod+Proficiency To Draft Luxin you have to be wearing your Spectacles or be able to see an item the same color as you can draft, you must also be in bright or normal light.

Drafting Sickness
If you draft over 100 drafting points in an encounter you will begin to feel sick and are unable to attack, to end this effect you must take an action to disperse the Luxin in your body, after doing so you will be stunned with a DC 15 Constitution check for 30 Seconds. Your Drafting Limit will increase every two levels by 50 points, 2nd 150, 4th 200, 6th 250, 8th 300, 10th 350, 12th 400, 14th 450, 16th 500, 18th 550, 20th 600.

Breaking The Halo[edit]

When you spend all of your Drafting Points you break your Halo. You're alignment changes to chaotic neutral, you gain a permanent madness from the following list, take one of your colors madness, and your emotions are controlled by your Luxin. It also causes your character after a month to be classified as an aberration as you have replaced your body with Luxin only Monochrome non superchromat Y ellows and Reds can't do this successfully. Color Wights are horrifying monsters who look at the world through their colors and their colors only. After a year you perfect your transformation and are a full Color Wight you can be around society but will still be shunned and mad.

Super-Violet Superiority Complex
You must be on top, no one can do better than you. And if they do you'll put a stop to them permanently.

Paryll Obsessive Protection
A single person becomes your obsession you have to keep them out of harms way and protect them at all times.
A note on the Halo
As a drafter you absorb light through your eyes and so the Luxin gathers there and slowly fills your eyes. Once this expands past your Iris into the Sclera you can no longer resist the call of your color driving you mad and causing you to replace pieces of their body with pure Luxin.

You can also simply blast people with a shard or blob of Luxin as detailed in the colors. You have to be in contact with the Luxin to change it's form. This increases by 5ft at 6th, 10th, 14th, 18th, and 20th levels.

Superchromat drafters of Green, or those with great deals of will and brute magical strength, can force Green to be more akin to other Luxins; hard like Blue (good for construction or combat), or soft, even fluid, like Red (good for going Green Golem or for making non-lethal projectiles).

Yellow[edit]

The center of the spectrum, Yellow restores other luxins keeping them solid longer, indefinitely if used properly, it helps the user think clearly usually leaving them far more intelligent but it does leave the user very lazy.

Yellow Luxin[edit]

Yellow Luxin, or Brightwater
Like bubbly, effervescent water, and will flashboil back into light upon contact with the air unless held. In its liquid form it is used to created beautiful fireworks, explosives, torches, and many other disposable incendiaries. In its solid form however, it becomes the most stable and solid of all Luxins.
Variants-Liquid
On Jasper Island Yellow Drafters would walk through the streets in times of celebration and send forth into the air a wondrous webwork of bright lights and fireworks that would attract visitors from all across the Seven Satrapies just to see it. Being so unstable, it also makes for excellent Luxin Torches, because it constantly bleeds back into light at a rate quick enough to produce good light to see or even to draft by. For these same reasons it is also used in warfare, especially by bichromes, because Yellow Luxin supplements other Luxins. Indeed, a Blue-Yellow Bichrome could fill Blue projectiles with Yellow Luxin which would explode upon impact. Yellow Luxin is also used often in the maintenance of Luxin structures, because Yellow Luxin will naturally replenish all other forms of Luxin, which would otherwise slowly break down & bleed back into light over time. Massive vats of Yellow Luxin are stored beneath each tower at the Chromeria, which shoot up each tower like water through the stalks of plants, wherein the Yellow Luxin is absorbed by the towers themselves, leaving the Chromeria healthy and strong.
Variants-Solid
Besides the myriad uses liquid Yellow has, Superchromat Drafters can create a solid form of Yellow, which is incredibly difficult to make even for them. Despite this, the end result is an incredibly hard Luxin, and also the most stable. Unlike liquid Yellow, solid Yellow Luxin bleeds back into light at the slowest rate of any Luxin, and requires the least amount of liquid Yellow to maintain. Yellow Tower, Brightwater Wall, and the Golden City are made mostly or entirely of Yellow Luxin, and are considered marvels of the world because of it, since solid Yellow Luxin is so incredibly difficult to draft, especially on a massive architectural scale.
