Jump to: navigation, search



Masters of mechanical mayhem, engineers love to tinker with explosives, elixirs, and all manner of hazardous gadgets. They can take control of an area by placing turrets, support their allies with alchemical weaponry, or lay waste to foes with a wide array of mines, bombs, and grenades. -

Creating an Engineer

When creating an engineer, think about how your character learned the skills needed to work with machines. Did they teach themselves? Or were they trained by a guild or society of engineers? Perhaps they come from a culture like that of dwarves and gnomes where such skills are common. Or perhaps they just figured it out for themselves through experimentation.

Class Features

Engineer Save DC

Many features of this class require a saving throw against an engineer's effects. If a saving throw is made against one of your spells or features, the DC is equal to 8 + Your Proficiency Bonus + Your Intelligence Modifier.


At level 1, you gain access to 3 gadgets from the gadget list. If your DM requires it, acquiring a gadget costs money and time to craft, depending on the gadget's tier, as seen on the table below. While on your person, gadgets are always in effect. When you level up, you may choose to replace a gadget you possess and replace it with one gadget for which you meet the requirements. The old gadget is destroyed, and you must craft the new one. If a gadget is somehow damaged, you must repair it with an Intelligence (Tinker's tools) check with a DC=12+Gadget Tier, spending half of the cost and time to repair it. A gadget lost or destroyed must be replaced entirely. Many gadgets have spell-like effects, but these are nonmagical, and therefore cannot be affected by spells such as dispel magic, counterspell, or antimagic field.

2 40gp / 4 hours

The Alchemist is an engineer adept at brewing potions and poisons to aid their allies and devastate their foes. While all engineers are able to brew, the Alchemist is an expert.

Alchemical Expertise

At the 3rd level, you gain proficiency in Poisoner's Tools, if you did not already. If you did, choose 1 other proficiency from the Engineer's Tool list instead.

Your proficiency bonus is doubled for ability checks using the Alchemist's and Poisoner's tools.

Infuse Potion

At the 3rd level, you gain the ability to create potions. Potions (or Poisons) require one action to apply, consume or throw. A successful check with the appropriate tools is required to make a brew. A failure results in a less potent or random failed concoction (DM's discretion). An exceptional or critical success may result in a more potent or duplicate brew, free of costs (also DM's discretion). Potions that use your statistics in their description use your statistics at the time of brewing. Keep track of the number upon brewing. Potions that have spell-like effects are uneffected by dispelling effects and anti-magic fields.

You may attempt to lessen or waive the monetary cost of a brew's ingredients with a Nature or Survival check to gather ingredients (at the DM's discretion). This would require more time.

* Variant: Alternatively to using a cost to brew, your DM may impose an energy cost to brewing a potion.
The cost is 2 Energy for a Tier One Potion, 3 Energy for a Tier Two Potion, and 5 Energy for a Tier Three Potion.
Under this variation, the spent energy cannot be regained until the brew is used or lost.

The potions you can create at this level are "Tier One" Potions. Tier One Potions require 30gp and 3 hours to create. The check DC for brewing a Tier One Potion is DC15.

  • Tier One Potions
    • Potion of Lesser Healing. Heals the drinker 2d4+Your Int mod.
    • Potion of Climbing. Gain a climbing speed equal to your walking speed for 1 hour. You gain advantage on checks made to climb.
    • Potion of Enlarge/Reduce. Choose either the enlarge or reduce effect of the enlarge/reduce spell. The drinker is under that effect for 1 hour.
    • Potion of Swiftness. The drinker gains a bonus of 15ft to their walking speed for 1 hour.
    • Lesser Poison. Upon ingestion, wounding, or splashing, a creature must succeed on a Con save or take 1d6+Your Int mod poison damage.

Skilled Alchemist

At the 6th level, the amount of time and money it takes to brew a Tier One Potion is reduced by 1/3 (or 1 less energy under the variant rule). Applying, drinking, or throwing a brew costs you just a bonus action.

Infuse Greater Potion

At the 6th level, you can concoct Tier Two Potions. Such potions follow the same guidelines as Tier One Potions, except that they require 60gp and 4 hours to create, and a successful DC 18 check.

  • Tier Two Potions
    • Potion of Greater Healing. Heals the drinker 3d6+Twice your Int mod HP.
    • Potion of Alter Self. Choose one possible effect of the alter self spell, and define it thoroughly upon brewing. Upon consumption, the creature possesses that effect for 1 hour.
    • Potion of Flight. The drinker gains a flying speed of 60 feet for 10 minutes.
    • Potion of Waterbreathing. The drinker can breathe underwater for 8 hours.
    • Potion of Haste. The drinker is under the effects of haste for 1 minute.
    • Potion of Resistance. Choose one type of damage (acid, cold, fire, lighting, force, necrotic, poison, psychic, radiant, and thunder) upon brewing. The drinker resists that damage type for 1 hour.
    • Potion of Firebreath. The drinker can breathe fire, as through the burning hands spell at the 1st level, as an action for 1 minute. The spell save DC is equal to your Engineer Save DC.
    • Greater Poison. Upon ingestion, wounding, or splashing, a creature must succeed on a Con save or suffer 2d8+Twice your Int mod Poison damage.

Adept Alchemist

At the 11th level, the amount of the amount of time and money it takes to brew a Tier Two Potion is reduced by 1/4 (or 1 less energy under the variant rule). Healing potions you brew heal for an additional amount equal to your Intelligence modifier (min. 1). Poisons you brew deal an additional amount of damage equal to your Intelligence modifier (min. 1).

Infuse Superior Potion

At the 15th level, you can concoct Tier Three Potions. Such potions follow the same guidelines as Tier One and Tier Two Potions, except that they require 120gp and 6 hours to create, and a successful DC 21 check.

  • Tier Three Potions
    • Potion of Superior Healing. Heals the drinker 4d8+Engineer Level HP.
    • Potion of Stoneskin. The drinker resists nonmagical piercing, bludgeoning, and slashing damage for 8 hours.
    • Potion of Polymorph. Choose a creature (within the limits of the polymorph spell). The drinker turns into the creature, following the perimeters of the polymorph spell, for 1 hour upon ingestion. A creature this is splashed on, or an unwilling creature that who spits it out, must succeed on a Con save or be affected.
    • Potion of Invisibility. A creature who drinks this potion is invisible for 1 minute upon ingesting.
    • Potion of Massive Strength. The drinker's Strength score is 23 for 1 hour. This potion fails if their Strength score is already that high.

    • Potion of Enlightenment. The drinker's Wisdom score is 19 for 1 hour. This potion fails if their Wisdom score is already that high.
    • Potion of Resurrection. The drinker is restored to life, as per the revivify spell.
    • Superior Poison. Upon ingestion, wounding, or splashing, a creature must succeed on a Con save or take 3d10+Engineer level poison damage. On a failure, a creature is also poisoned for 1 minute.
    • Plaguebringer's Poison. Upon ingestion, wounding or splashing, the target is affected as if by Contagion.
    • Paralytic Poison. Upon ingestion, wounding, or splashing, a creature must succeed on a Con save or be paralyzed for 1 minute.
    • Sweet Poison. Upon ingestion, a creature must succeed at a Wis save or permanently fall in love with the first creature it perceives. If it wouldn't normally be attracted to the creature, it instead feels a strong platonic adoration. Remove Curse or similar effects allow the creature to attempt a new Wis save.

Master Alchemist

At the 20th level, the amount of the amount of time and money it takes to brew a Tier Three Potion is reduced by 1/6 (or 1 less energy under the variant rule). While brewing a potion or poison, you may spend 3 Energy per tier to duplicate the brew, free of costs. This may be done after the brew check, and only one duplicate can be made doing this.

Healing Potions you brew cure any diseases and conditions afflicting the drinker.

Poisons you brew have an increased save DC of +2.
