Elemental Shaman[edit]

Druid Subclass

Runic Shamans Elemental Shamans are Druids who live with humanoid tribes, worship the ancestors of the tribes and commune with the elemental and animal spirit guardians who protect the tribes and guide their followers. Since elemental Shamans gleam their magic from these fickle and powerful ancestral, elemental and animal spirits they have wild and almost uncontrollable powers of magic in many ways similar to a sorcerer but their magic is mostly focused on the divine and natural. Elemental Shamans can harness the power of the elements each day and choose which elemental totem they chose their magical abilities from, they begin to even harness the physical aspects of said elemental totems as they gain powers. Their known totems is the Healing waters totem, the avenging fire totem, the earth guardian totem and the Sky Trickster Totem that is known but there is rumors of other, more obscure or even forbidden spiritual totems.

Spirit Mana at 2nd level the Shaman is a deep wellspring of spiritual energies that come from within themselves. This wellspring is represented by Spirit Mana which allows you to create a variety of magical effects. The Elemental Shaman has 2 Spirit Mana and as the Shaman gains more levels they gain one additional Spirit Mana each new level. Spirit Mana follows the same exact rules as Sorcery points for all intents and purposes and can be converted to actual cast spells in the same manner.

Channel Divinity: Ultimate Runes At 2nd level, you gain the ability to channel divine energy directly from your deities and ancestors, using that energy to fuel a potent magical effect known as an Ultimate Rune. The Ultimate Rune can be sacrificed to perform a similar effect to Turn undead but towards creatures of an opposing elemental affinity.

When you use your Channel Divinity, you choose which effect to create. You must then finish a short or long rest to use your Channel Divinity again.

Some Channel Divinity effects require saving throws. When you use such an effect from this class, the DC equals your Druid spell save DC.

Beginning at 6th level, you can use your Channel Divinity twice between rests, and beginning at 18th level, you can use it three times between rests. When you finish a short or long rest, you regain your expended uses.
