Enthous (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Enthous shake the foundation of the world, bearing down their righteous fury onto all who would oppose them. They are a martial order devoted to the destruction of evil and explore a close relationship and provide patronage to the natural world. Enthous are often extremely hardy, concerned almost entirely with ensuring order and prosperity are maintained in all situations, even in those situations where it may not be prudent. They have a strong sense of decorum and are eager to learn the ways and customs of others so as to fit into their society. As such, they have learned to adapt quickly, both on and off the battlefield, and take extraordinary pride in their ability to destroy those who would harm what they view as the natural order.
Creating a Enthous
Enthous are devoted to setting the world in its proper order. They are strong-willed, to the point of stubbornness. They channel primal energies into their very being and unleash them, causing the world to shudder before their might. Enthous are always on the front line of a fight, and rarely back down from anything lest proven through strength of arms and spirit, rather than simple discourse. They often see the world as undisciplined and that those who are weaker than them, while they may be deserving of help, are not to be pitied for their weakness. Rather, the enthous would see them rally their courage and take to a cause, as a life of passivity is seen as one not in service to the world that breathed life into them. The enthous frequently help more pious sorts, acting as bodyguards and captains to orders whom they deem worthy of concern. Enthous tend towards a variety of ideologies, and who they are in service to is frequently varied, though immediately obvious to those who have been around them for any length of time. Above all else, determination is valued most highly by the enthous, to whatever end.

With a gutteral shout, you leap into the fray, utterly destroying the land around you.
Beginning at level 5, you may use your action to perform a leaping strike, jumping up to 30 feet in any direction. At level 9, you may also use all of your movement to perform this action.
When you land, all terrain within a 10 foot radius centered on you becomes difficult terrain, as the force of your landing shakes the earth itself.
You reach into a creature's spiritual body and crack its foundations, debilitating them.
Beginning at level 11, while you are not wielding a weapon, as an action, you may focus upon an enemy within sight. If that creature takes any action until your next turn, you crush their foundation. The creature is aware of this feature when it is used on them. You may dodge as a bonus action while using this feature.
At level 11, if the focused creature takes any action, including movement, the creature makes a Constitution saving throw. If they fail, they are blinded, deafened, and paralyzed. They may make a saving throw on their turn to end these effects.
You may use this feature three times, and you regain all uses of this feature after you finish a long rest. A use of this feature is only expended if the focused creature takes an action.
Orb of Hope
You focus the energy of a small sun into your fist and release its energy, granting light and hope to your allies.
Beginning at level 13, you may use an action to create a small sun 5 feet above you, that pulses and lasts for three rounds. The sun shines brightly, mimicking the effect of daylight, which is centered on the sun. All evil-aligned creatures become frightened upon seeing it.
This sun grants a number of benefits, providing a variety of effects to all allies within its 30-foot sphere. All allied creatures affected by the sphere gain the effects of lesser restoration and freedom of movement. The sun pulses these effects on each of your turns.
Any foe of huge size or greater is unaffected by the sphere.

If you miss, the foe's hit points are halved. This attack extends into the planar void, and may hit foes in other planes, times, or means of existence, snuffing them out. It also dispels wards or any other protections from death or destruction when it hits.
