Geomancer[edit]

A geomancer is a force of nature who has unlocked the ability to unleash the dormant power in the very earth itself. While this power manifests itself in various ways among geomancers, many fail before becoming a geomancer as not all individuals have required patience, fortitude, and natural inclination for earth magic. Those who succeed find themselves able to glide over the earth, armor themselves in stone, and feel the earth around them.

An Ancient Craft[edit]

While using magic to manipulate stone and earth may seem rudimentary, the art of using magic to control earth is as old if uncommon as history itself. The geomancers of old were just as powerful if not more limited in scope of magic than geomancers now. Regardless of the differences between geomancers through the ages, it is tradition for older practitioners of earth magic to tell ancient stories to younger geomancers. Fragmented as these old stories may be, it behooves to remember that the earth forgives much in time but be warned that it has a long memory.

Creating a Geomancer[edit]

When creating a geomancer, it is important to ask your nature. Are you someone who embraces tradition and the old ways or are you someone who sticks to what they know but adapts with new things they learn? How did you gain the ability to manipulate stone, did you train yourself alone through trials and tribulations or did you have a mentor? Is becoming a geomancer a defining part of your life or do you believe that it is just a step in your life's journey? Do you possess strong beliefs and willpower before becoming a geomancer or did some event or events in your life trigger a transformation that allowed you to gain these traits? Or are you still unsure of yourself but gaining more confidence over time?

Quick Build

You can make a geomancer quickly by following these suggestions. First, Wisdom should be your highest ability score, followed by Constitution or Strength. Second, choose the sage background. Third, choose the chain shirt, morningstar and shield, and the explorer's pack.

Spellcasting[edit]

As a practitioner of earth magic, your spells focus on controlling the environment around yourself and protecting yourself and your allies.

Cantrips

At 1st level, you know three cantrips of your choice from the geomancer spell list. You learn additional geomancer cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Geomancer table.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Geomancer table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of geomancer spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the geomancer spell list. When you do so, choose a number of geomancer spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + your geomancer level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

For example, if you are a 3rd-level, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level spell slots. With a Wisdom of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level spell cure wounds, you can cast it using a 1st-level or 2nd-level slot. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of geomancer spells requires time spent in meditation: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability

Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your geomancer spells. You use your Wisdom whenever a geomancer spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a geomancer spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Ritual Casting

You can cast a geomancer spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell prepared.

Spellcasting Focus

You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your geomancer spells.

Earthen Attuned[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you become more attuned to earth and gain the ability to harness it power in a number of minor ways. You may use this power to perform any of the following:

  • You may learn the mineral composition of any rock by touching it.
  • As an action, you may condense a handful of earthen material, turning dust to sand or sand to gravel or gravel to stone.
  • While underground, you can always tell which direction is the closest that leads to the surface.

Geomancer Focus[edit]

At 1st level, you chose a certain focus as a geomancer to fine tune your powers. Choose between Earthen Controller, Sand Shifter, and Earth Defender all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st level, and again at 2nd, 6th, 10th and 18th level.

Geode Points[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you become able to harness the power of the earth in a variety of ways. You gain 4 geode points and your geomancer level determines the number of points you have, as shown in the Geode Points column of the Geomancer table.

You can spend these points to use various geomancer features. You start knowing two such features: Flurry of Blows, Patient Defense, and Step of the Wind. You learn more features as you gain levels in this class and depending on your subclass.

You regain an amount of geode points equal to your geomancer level when you finish a short rest, and you regain all expended geode points when you finish a long rest.

Stone Shield

As a bonus action, you can spend 2 geode points to gain 1d4 + half your geomancer level temporary hit points for 1 hour. The amount of temporary hit points gained increases as you gain levels in this class to 2d4 + half your geomancer level at 6th level, 3d4 + half your geomancer level at 10th level, and 4d4 + half your geomancer level at 18th level.

Earth Glide

As a bonus action, you can spend 1 geode point to ignore difficult terrain made of gravel, mud, sand, or stone for 10 minutes.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

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.

Transmute Earth[edit]

By 14th level, through practice, you have mastered the ability to change the form of stone. As an action, you can spend 1 geode point and touch a 5x5 cube material of dirt, sand, gravel, or solid stone. That cube of material changes to another form of your choice between dirt, sand, gravel, or stone.

Grounded[edit]

Starting at 20th level, your very mastery of nature has allowed you to manifest control over an area around yourself. You gain a tremorsense of 60 feet and when a creature starts its turn within the range and is not on the ground, you may have them make a Strength saving throw. On a success, the creature is pulled 10 feet towards the ground, and on a failure, the creature is pulled 50 feet towards the ground and they can not fly, jump, or otherwise remove themselves from the ground while within the area of your tremorsense.

Earth Controller[edit]

Earth controller geomancers are those who choose to learn how to contort, bend, and manipulate earth to achieve their needs. Although basic in premise, (something on how there are a lot of different uses for the ability/those with the ability do lots of different things? helping with building and repairing roads, homes, fixing foundations; working in military, improve armies' maneuverability and creating traps; help with mining in various ways (check minerals,) ; messengers ; help with farming / making a place more suitable to farm )

Glide Through The Earth

Starting at 1st level, you are able to use magic to displace earth you touch, allowing you to rapidly move through the earth. You gain a burrowing speed equal to your base walking speed and can burrow in any material made of dirt, sand, stone, or other earth. This burrowing is magical, you do not need to breathe during it, and you do not leave a hole in the ground behind when you use it.

Raise Earth Wall

Starting at 1st level, ...... fluff. As an action, you can raise a number of 5 foot earth walls equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of one), in unoccupied spaces you can see within 60 feet of you. These walls last for 1 minute, they each have hit points equal to double your geomancer level + your proficiency bonus, and are immune to poison, psychic, and necrotic damage. Once you summon these earth walls, you can not summon them again until you finish a long rest or you expend a 1st level or higher spell slot to recover use of Raise Earth Wall when you finish a short rest.

Geode Feature: Fling Rock

Starting at 2nd level, your specialization in manipulating earth grants you the ability to imbue stones then chuck them at any unsuspecting foe. As a bonus action, you may spend 1 geode point to make a ranged spell attack against a target you can see within 60 feet of you. On a hit, you deal 1d6 bludgeoning damage. This damage increases as you gain levels in this class to 2d6 at 6th level, 3d6 at 10th level, and 4d6 at 18th level.
