Far Touched (5e Class)[edit]

A lone man is standing within the midst of all out war, the side of which he is fighting for is failing. As all seems lost the man's skin ruptures and contorts, hardening into a carapace like structure. A bone chilling roar is let out and soon the tides of battle are sure to turn. The huntress finds herself wandering back to the place that changed her forever, the creatures spilling from this portal are ruining the land all around, and soon she's out of sight, her skin curling over her and changing colors to match the environment.

The Far Touched are creatures that were touched by the Far Realm, a chaotic and unpredictable realm. These creatures have a Symbiotic creature that is not leeching them, but instead empowering them while they feed off of a part of the nutrients the host intakes. (This requires a bit more rations.) The Symbiote turns the creature into the perfect, living weapon. Introduction

Starting at 1st level, you have open your mind, expanding the limits of what you can accomplish. You become able to share thoughts and feelings through your mind. You can communicate telepathically with any creature you can see within 30 feet.

In addition, you can use this ability to trigger the pain receptors on your enemies brain. Choose one creature you can see within 30 feet. That creature must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw against your Psi-save DC. On a failed save, the creature take 1d4 psychic damage and it is unable to use its movement until the start of your next turn.

Haunted Dreams[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you have terryfing visions of distant realms, that grant you insight and information. When you finish a long rest, you can choose to add double of your proficiency bonus to one Intelligence related skill of your choice. This benefit lasts until your next rest.

Awakened Mind[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, can open your mind, enhancing your mental capabilities at cost of your sanity. Your Far Touched level determines the number of sanity points you have, as shown in the Sanity column of the Far Touched table. You can spend these points to fuel various far touched features. Choose two features from those listed at the end of this class article. When you gain a level in this class, you can change one feature you have chosen for another one.

You learn one additional far touched feature at 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th and 18th levels.

Losing Sanity

Using your new awakened powers is a dangerous task, that can cause to become irremediably crazy. Whenever you have 0 sanity points, you must make a Wisdom saving throw against a DC equal to half your level (rounded up) + 10. On a failed save, you develop a madness effect, and need to roll from the short term madness table.

If you fail on an attack roll from your far touched features with a 1 on the d20, or a creature succeeds with a roll of 20 on the d20 of a saving throw against your far touched features, you need to roll on the long term madness table.

Recovering Sanity

Resting your mind can help you to overcome the trauma from overusing your far touched powers. You recover all your spent sanity points when you finish a short or a long rest.

Awakened Mind Ability

Some of your Blood Pool features require your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature’s effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

Far Touched save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Far Touched attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Mind Scanning[edit]

Starting at 10th level, you can spend 1 sanity point to detect intelligent creatures in a nearby area. You need to concentrate for 1 minute, and doing so allow you to detect any creature with a intelligence score of 6 or higher within 1 mile of you. You can detect what's the Intelligence score of the creatures and the general direction those creatures are.

By spending 1 additional sanity points, you can try to scan one specific Intelligence score of a certain creature, determining its type, alignment and number of hit die.

Psychic Shield[edit]

Starting at 13th level, your mind is shielded from most effects that would cause you harm. You can end the frightened and charmed condition on you as an Action on your turn. In addition, whenever you fail a Intelligence, Wisdom or Charisma saving throw, you can spend 1 sanity point to reroll the saving throw.

Preternatural Nature[edit]

At 20th level, you finally transcend your mortal form, surrendering your mind to the madness of the far realm. Your Intelligence score increase in 4, to a maximum of 24.

In addition, you gain one indefinite madness trait, but you no longer need to make checks to avoid madness when you run out of sanity points.
