In wilds beyond they speak your name with reverence and regret,

For none could tame our savage souls yet you the challenge met,

Under hollowst watch, you taught, we changed, base instincts were redeemed,

A world you gave to bug and beast as they had never dreamed.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ – From 'Elegy for Hallownest' by Monomon the Teacher


A Pure Vessel[edit]

Born of wyrm and root, of soul and void, you are a pale knight. You rescue the world's vulnerable populations from terrible fiends and evil deities.

Traditionally, pale knights do not speak and show no emotion. However, in the context of roleplaying games, feel free to break this precedent.


Creating a Pale Knight[edit]

As you build your pale knight, think about the origin of their abilities. Were they born with combat capability, or was it gained through years of difficult training?

It's also important to consider what combination of charms you will be using. They are similar to Eldritch Invocations but can be equipped & unequipped each short or long rest.

It is generally best to have both a high Dexterity and a high Wisdom score, but you can lean more into one or the other via your choice of charms and ASI/feats.

Additionally, bear in mind that your main class resource, Soul, is not recovered by resting, but rather by striking enemies. You will have to engage in melee combat in order to use your powerful ranged attacks.


Quick Build[edit]

You can make a pale knight quickly by following these suggestions. First, your highest ability score should be Dexterity, followed by Wisdom and then Constitution. Second, choose the Outlander background.


Multiclassing[edit]

In order to multiclass into the the pale knight, you must meet the prerequisites. If you gain a level in a class other than your first, you only gain some of that class's starting proficiencies:

  • Prerequisites: Dexterity 13, Wisdom 13
  • Proficiencies gained: simple weapons, shortswords


Pale Nail[edit]

Pale knights are trained to strike fiercely with small objects. You can attack with a shortsword using two hands; when you do so, its damage die increases to 2d6.

Your shortsword (or alternatively any other melee weapon you wield that you are proficient in) is referred to as your Nail in other class features.


Soul[edit]

Your hollow heritage allows you to harness the mystic power of Soul, the energy filling the universe with life. Your ability to gather and make use of this energy is represented by a number of Soul points. Your pale knight level determines the maximum number of Soul points you can have, as shown in the pale knight table.

You can spend these points to fuel various Soul features. You start knowing one such feature: Focus. You learn more Soul features as you gain levels in this class.

Gaining Soul[edit]

You gain soul by striking a hostile creature with your Nail. Doing so restores 1 Soul point. Additionally, all of your Soul points are restored whenever your character level increases.

Optional: Ancient Wonders. Your DM may allow you to find statues, magical springs, or other ancient wonders throughout the world that can replenish your Soul points.

Soul Attacks[edit]

As you gain levels in this class, you will learn Soul-fueled attacks. Wisdom is your Soul attack ability, since your Soul power derives from your attunement to its energy. You use your Wisdom modifier whenever a feature refers to your Soul modifier. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a Charm or Soul feature you use and when making an attack roll with one.

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

Soul attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Focus[edit]

You have the ability to use the Soul you collect to restore your own vitality. You can choose to do so at the start of your turn by spending 3 Soul points. Until the start of your next turn, you are incapacitated and your speed is 0.

If by the start of your next turn you have not taken damage, you regain hit points equal to 1d10 + your pale knight level. If you do take damage, 2 of the 3 Soul points you used are restored, but you do not recover hit points. As with most healing, this feature cannot be used to recover temporary hit points.

Charms[edit]

At 2nd level, you gain the ability to augment your power by equipping magical relics known as charms. You have two charm notches, and you gain more as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the pale knight table.

You may equip any number of charms, so long as you meet the charm's prerequisite level, and the total notch cost of your charms does not exceed the number of notches you have. A list of charms can be found at the end of this document.

You are able to equip and unequip charms at the end of a short or long rest.

Optional: Gathering Charms. Your DM may require some or all of your charms to be found somewhere in the world before you can equip them. If you find a charm this way, you do not need to meet its level requirement to equip it.

Fragile Charms[edit]

You can equip "unbreakable" charms before reaching their level requirement. If you are reduced to 0 hit points while one of these charms is equipped, it becomes "broken", and you cannot equip it again until you meet its level requirement.

Overcharm[edit]

If you have at least one free charm notch, you can equip a charm that costs more notches than the number of free notches you have. If you do this, all damage you take is doubled until you are no longer overcharmed.

Vengeful Spirit[edit]

By 3rd level, you’ve learned to weaponize your power over Soul. As an action, you can spend 3 Soul points to direct a blast of glowing, white energy at a target within 60 feet. Make a ranged Soul attack. On a hit, the target takes 4d8 radiant damage.

Mothwing Cloak[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, if you aren't wearing medium or heavy armor, you can use a bonus action to rush up to 10 feet in any direction. This movement does not provoke opportunity attacks.


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.

If your DM allows the use of feats, you may instead take a feat.


Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.


Desolate Dive[edit]

At 5th level, you develop a new Soul attack. As an action, you can spend 4 Soul points to strike the ground with a concentrated force of Soul, creating a shockwave of white energy in a 10-foot radius centered on yourself. All other creatures in this area must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 5d10 radiant damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Inanimate objects that aren’t being worn or carried take double damage from this attack.

If you use this feature in the air, you shoot downwards at a speed of 120 feet per round, creating the shockwave the moment you hit the ground. While falling, you are incapacitated and immune to all damage, and you take no damage upon hitting the ground.

Dream Nail[edit]

Beginning at 6th level, you gain the ability to conjure an astral Nail, which you can use to cut through the veil between dreams and waking. As an action, you can make a melee Soul attack against a creature within 5 feet of you. On a hit, the target takes no damage, but you learn the surface thoughts of the creature as if you had cast detect thoughts. The target can make a Wisdom (Insight) check against your Soul save DC to become aware of your intrusion into its mind.

Additionally, if the target is hostile to you, this attack restores 3 Soul points.

You cannot use this feature on a target affected by any conditions (grappled, poisoned, etc.), and you must have two free hands in order to use this feature (you may sheath your Nail as part of the action used to perform this attack).

Whenever you use this feature, attacks against you have advantage until the start of your next turn.

Mantis Claw[edit]

Starting at 7th level, you gain a climbing speed equal to your walking speed. You have advantage on Strength (Athletics) checks made to climb a surface with few handholds.

Howling Wraiths[edit]

At 9th level, you gain the ability to blast foes with screaming Soul. As an action, you can spend 5 Soul points to release howling energy in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in range must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 3d12 radiant damage and 3d12 thunder damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Crystal Heart[edit]

Starting at 9th level, you can launch yourself at dangerous speeds. As an action while on the ground or holding onto a wall, you can begin a super dash. This causes you to move 60 feet per round in a horizontal direction of your choice. Once the super dash begins, you cannot change your direction of travel, and the only action you can take is a reaction to stop dashing. When the dash stops, you fall to the ground if you are airborne.

Monarch Wings[edit]

At 10th level, you gain a flying speed of 20 feet. You cannot fly on consecutive turns using this feature.

Shade Soul[edit]

At 11th level, you gain the ability to conjure a shadow that will fly forward and burn foes in its path. As an action, you can spend 6 Soul points to release a bolt of Soul energy in a line 100 feet long and 5 feet wide. Each creature in the line must make a Dexterity saving throw. A target takes 8d8 necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Targets gain no benefit from half or three-quarters cover for this saving throw.

Descending Dark[edit]

From 13th level onward, you are capable of striking the ground with a concentrated force of Soul and Shadow. You develop a new Soul attack, which is similar to your Desolate Dive feature.

As an action, you can spend 7 Soul points to create a shockwave of dark energy in a 15-foot radius centered on yourself. All other creatures in this area must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 10d10 necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Inanimate objects that aren’t being worn or carried take double damage from this attack.

If you use this feature in the air, you shoot downwards at a speed of 120 feet per round, creating the shockwave the moment you hit the ground. While falling, you are incapacitated and immune to all damage, and you take no damage upon hitting the ground.

Isma’s Tear[edit]

At 14th level, you gain immunity to acid damage and proficiency in Constitution saving throws.

Dreamgate[edit]

Starting at 15th level, you can traverse the world via the currents of dream energy. You may place a Dreamgate by spending a minute holding your Dream Nail and channeling its power. From then on, you can spend 1 Soul point to teleport to the location you placed the Dreamgate as an action. You can take a number of willing creatures up to your Soul modifier with you if they are within 10 feet of you, and any objects you are wearing or carrying are teleported with you.

You can only have one Dreamgate at a time. If you place a new Dreamgate, the previous one vanishes.

Awoken Dream Nail[edit]

At 17th level, you fully awaken your mind to the essence of dreams. When you hit a creature with your Dream Nail, you can enter the dreams of the target if it is sleeping, as if you had cast dream.

Abyss Shriek[edit]

At 17th level, you develop your most powerful Soul attack, which blasts foes with screaming Soul and Shadow. As an action, you can spend 8 Soul points and release a powerful screech in a 30-foot cone. Each creature in this area must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 5d12 necrotic damage, 5d12 radiant damage, and 5d12 thunder damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Shade Cloak[edit]

At 18th level, you gain new mobility by absorbing power from the Abyss. As a bonus action, or as a reaction when a creature targets you with an attack, you can teleport up to 15 feet to a location you can see.

When you use this feature, you must wait at least one round of combat before using it again.

Salubra's Blessing[edit]

At 20th level, your accomplishments have attracted the favor of a benevolent spirit. You regain all expended Soul points whenever you complete a short or long rest.

Charms[edit]

You can only use this attack if you are at your hit point maximum (meaning you can still use it after taking damage if you only lose temporary hit points) or when you are benefitting from Fury of the Fallen.

Mark of Pride[edit]

9th level, 3 notches
The reach of your Nail increases by 5 feet. Additionally, you can choose to have your attacks hit a second target in your Nail's reach, if your attack roll matches or exceeds the armor class of the other creature.

Race[edit]

The pale knight class is designed to work within the context of the 5th edition races. At your DM's discretion, you can alternatively use the following racial stats:


Arthropod Vessel[edit]

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity Score increases by 2, and your Wisdom score increases by 1.

Age. Little is known about how arthropod vessels age. They are assumed to have lifespans similar to a human's.

Alignment. These vessels were created for a very specific purpose. In general, they adhere to lawful and/or good alignments.

Size. Arthropod vessels find themselves to be shorter than most creatures they meet. Your size is Small.

Speed. You have a walking speed of 30 feet.

Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Natural Armor. You are equipped with a protective exoskeleton. When you aren't wearing armor, your AC is 13 + your Dexterity modifier. You can use your natural armor to determine your AC if the armor you wear would leave you with a lower AC. A shield's benefits apply as normal while you use your natural armor.

Born of Void. You are immune to becoming charmed or frightened. If you are killed, you summon an Avatar of Death, which will attack any creature that was not hostile to you when you died.
