Dream walker (Oneiromancer)[edit]

Dream manipulation

Dream Manipulation[edit]

The manipulation of the unconscious mind is a strength that little spellcasters look into. With this in mind, dream walkers are able to cast any person, or thing, unconscious and take over their world very similar to Freddy Kreuger but in this instance: it's less about scaring your foes and more about taking them on personally to make it easier for your team.

Class Features[edit]

Deep Sleep

As a master of dreams, you need a way to get into the unconscious mind. At 1st level, you gain the enchantment spell sleep. Sleep can be cast without materials on other players, creatures and yourself. Sleep duration is increased permanently to 30 minutes and you have at 1st level 2 sleep casts per short rest. Hit dice number is increased by +3d8 and the number of sleep casts per short rest increase by 2 at levels 7, 11 and 15. As the caster you can wake up from sleep when desired without having to be woken, taken damage or the duration wears out. You can also wake creatures and allies up too when in the dream realm, cancelling the sleep spell, this can only be done by the caster or another dream walker.


At 1st level you gain access to 3 cantrips of your choice within the transmutation, illusion and conjuration schools of magic. Each time they are cast any creature within a 10 ft radius and in line of sight must take a charisma saving throw of DC 10 + your charisma or be frightened for 30 minutes. You can only use trickery 2 times per long rest. at levels 8, 13 and 17 you get to pick an additional cantrip within the boundaries and trickery uses are increased by 1 per long rest.

Dream Realm

At 1st level, when you use Deep Sleep on yourself, a player or a creature: you create a dimension which all those affected by deep sleep enter leaving their bodies vulnerable. All other creatures and players must make a Charisma saving throw DC 12 + your charisma to recognize that they are in the dream realm and if failed therefore cannot use cognitive conjure and have disadvantage on saving throws and skill checks until you leave the dream realm. You cannot affect your original dimension whilst in the dream realm ( so opening a door in the dream realm wouldn't open the door to your original dimension). The dream realm takes shape of your original environment which it has been cast from. Movement in the dream realm doesn't move your unconscious body in your original dimension. You can take damage in the dream realm from other players and creatures despite their body being away from you (so when you are hit in the dream realm you are hit in your original dimension despite not being next to the damage inflicter) this counts for all who are under the effects of Deep Sleep in the dream realm. When taking damage in the dream realm you do not wake up. The caster gains +1 AC whilst in the dream realm. When leaving the dream realm, it remains open with any creature inside.


At 2nd level, the dream walker gains the message cantrip (if already selected through trickery pick another within the given boundaries). When the message cantrip is used in the dream realm, it translates to the original dimension only. Any creature within line of sight and within 10ft takes a charisma saving throw of DC 12 + your charisma or be frightened for 30 minutes.


At 3rd level you can use a game set or a musical instrument within 5 ft of a creature or player. you must concentrate for 2 minutes in doing so the creature or player must take a charisma saving throw of DC 12 + your charisma or be put under the effects of Deep sleep despite the limit of uses for deep sleep. You can only affect one creature or player. The creature or player must be in line of sight and you must have their attention. You can do this 2 times per long rest, this increases by 1 at 6th 9th 14th and 18th level.

False Imagery

At 4th level, You can use a disguise kit in the dream realm to change your appearance to any tiny, small, medium or large: beast, fey, aberration, monstrosity and fiend. You do not gain any racial features or abilities of the chosen creature. all creatures within a 20 ft radius in line of sight must take a charisma saving throw of DC 12 + Charisma or be frightened for 30 minutes if the chosen creature is medium or larger. When you're of a size of small or tiny you have double movement speed. You can use this once per long rest and an additional 1 every 12th 19th level.

Cognitive Conjure

At 6th level, as an action you can conjure a weapon or small item in the dream realm at any point. You cannot conjure magic weapons or items. You cannot take anything you've conjured out of the dream realm. If potions are consumed in the dream realm the effects are carried over from the dream realm when exiting. Any creature or player in the dream realm can use cognitive conjure. Players and creatures can use conjuration 3 times. Any dream walker can conjure 3 and an additional 1 at level 12, 16 and 19.

Ability Score Improvement

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.

Lucid Archetype[edit]

At 5th level, you chose a Lucid archetype. Choose between Dream Warriors, Nightmare and Illusionist detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 5th 10th 16th and again at 20th level.
