Opportunist[edit]

Some rely on brute force, on endless study, or mere faith. Not an opportunist. No, one such as this thinks on their feet. A combination of cunning, tact, talent, and agility are where this one excels. The exact talents of any given opportunist vary wildly from one to another. While some are akin to thieves and assassins, others are performers and mediators.

As its title might imply, an opportunist excels more than any other at recognizing and seizing a prime opportunity others might miss—whether that's on the field of battle, the alley of a town, or the chambers of a king.

Creating an Opportunist[edit]

  2. Choose the Charlatan background.
  3. For the tool proficiency granted by this class, choose thieves' tools.

Cunning Action[edit]

You can use quick thinking and agility to take a bonus action on each of your turns in combat. This bonus action can be used only to Dash, Disengage, or Hide.

Talent[edit]

Due to training or natural talent, you are unusually skilled in a particular area. At 1st level, you gain your choice of one of the Talents below. Unless stated otherwise, you can never gain the same Talent more than once.

Expertise

Choose one skill, or two tools, in which you are proficient. You gain expertise in the skill or tools you choise. You can gain this Talent multiple times, but cannot gain expertise in a skill or tool more than once.

Jack of All Trades

You add a +1 bonus to any ability check you make that doesn’t already include your proficiency bonus, nor any bonus other than your ability modifier.

Martial Artist

You have mastered the esoteric art of fighting unarmed. You gain the following benefits:

  • You can roll a d6 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike. This kind of unarmed strike is considered a light weapon for the purpose of two-weapon fighting.
  • You can substitute your Dexterity modifier for your Strength modifier on attack and damage rolls with unarmed strikes.
  • When you hit a creature with an unarmed strike on your turn, you can use a bonus action to attempt to grapple the target.
  • When you are unarmed and both of your hands are free, you add a +1 bonus to your AC.
Spellcasting Adept

Your magic point maximum increases by 2.

Choose a class and subclass from researcher or sage. You learn two cantrips of your choice from that subclass's spell list. In addition, choose one 1st-level spell from that same list. You learn that spell and can cast it at its lowest level by expending 2 magic points.

Your spellcasting ability for these spells depends on the class you chose: Intelligence for researcher, or Wisdom for sage.

Weapon Training

You gain proficiency with all martial weapons, and with shields (but not heavy shields).

Sneakstrike[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you can put your cunning to expert use in battle by striking your foes' weakest spots. Once per turn you can make a Sneakstrike when you hit with a called shot, hit when you have advantage on your weapon attack roll, or hit a surprised creature with a weapon attack.

When you hit with a Sneakstrike, your attack inflicts an extra amount of damage equal to your levels in this class.

The subclass you gain at 3rd level may improve your Sneakstrike.

Stamina Meter[edit]

At 2nd level, you gain a number of stamina points equal to your Dexterity modifier if it is positive. If your Dexterity modifier later increases, so does your number of stamina points.

At 3rd level and every level you gain in this class, you gain 1 additional stamina point. You can expend your stamina points to perform a Called Shot, or other class features. Normally all of your stamina points are replenished when you complete a short or long rest.

Called Shot

Whenever you make a weapon attack, but before you make the attack roll, you can expend 2 stamina points to make it a called shot. If the weapon attack hits, it inflicts the maximum amount of damage for its damage dice. (For example, a weapon die of 1d8 would inflict 8 damage without rolling.) The extra damage dice from any critical hit, magic weapon, or class feature are also maximized.

Your DM may allow alternate effects for a called shot.

Opportunist Subclass[edit]

At 3rd level, you choose an subclass that you exercise in your opportunist abilities. The subclass you choose grants you features at 3rd level and again at 7th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 20th level.

Each subclass is summarized immediately below, and covered in more detail later on this page.

  • An assassin specializes in delivering a devastating, killing blow to an unsuspecting foe.
  • A garo practices an art that specializes in accenting the cunning and agility of an opportunist with evocation and illusion magic.
  • A mystic nomad specializes in unarmed combat and mobility, and employs a variety of flashy spells to accomplish its goals.
  • A skirmisher focuses on scouting out terrain, and working with allies to achieve the upper hand in combat.

Ability Score Increase[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 campaign is using the feats optional rule, you can replace this feature with a feat for which you qualify.

Battle Reflex[edit]

Starting from 5th level, you add both your Dexterity modifier and Wisdom modifier to your initiative rolls.

Uncanny Dodge[edit]

Starting at 5th level, when an attacker that you can see hits you with an attack, you can expend 1 stamina point to use your reaction to halve the attack’s damage against you.

Extra Talent[edit]

At 6th level, you can choose another Talent that was available to you at 1st level. You can also choose to instead gain one of the following Talents:

King of All Trades

You can only gain this Talent if you have already gained the Jack of All Trades Talent. The bonus from Jack of All Trades increases to +2.

Evasion[edit]

Beginning at 9th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a a monster's fiery breath or a lightning bolt spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.

Reliable Skills[edit]

By 10th level, you have refined your chosen skills until they approach perfection. Whenever you make an ability check that lets you add your proficiency bonus, you can treat a d20 roll of 9 or lower as a 10.

Blindsight[edit]

At 13th level, you gain blindsight out to a range of 10 feet. As long as you can hear, you can perceive any creature within this range even if it is hidden or invisible, and your inability to see it doesn’t impose disadvantage on your attack rolls against it

Elusive[edit]

Starting at 15th level, no attack roll can have advantage against you while you aren't incapacitated.

Supreme Luck[edit]

You hone your talents to pull off incredible stunts that appear to be extreme luck. Starting at 18th level, you can do any one of the following:

  • Immediately after you roll initiative, you can choose to roll again and can use either the new result or the initial one.
  • When you miss an attack roll, you can choose to hit instead.
  • When you fail an ability check, you can choose to instead treat the roll as 20.

Once you use this feature, you must complete a long rest before you can use it again.

Assassin[edit]

SygSGFr.jpg

Source

An assassin excels at that most deadly of art; of finding the perfect moment to take the life of another with one stoke, whether that be with a swift knife to the throat or a cleverly placed vial of poison. Consequently most assassins are masters of disguise, infiltration, and deception. Clever ones mix and apply their own deadly poisons. The greatest among them fell kings and demons, and can single-handedly change the course of history.

Bonus Proficiency[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain proficiency with the disguise kit and poisoner's kit. If you are already proficient with either, you can instead gain proficiency with any tool of your choice.

Killing Strike[edit]

Starting from 3rd level, the extra damage from your Sneakstrike feature becomes equal to your Dexterity modifier + twice your levels in this class.

Infiltration[edit]

Starting at 7th level, you become a master of getting where others you aren't meant to be. You gain the following benefits:

  • You have advantage on any Charisma check made to convince a creature you are someone other than who you are, or have credentials you do not.
  • You gain a climb speed equal to your base walking speed.
  • On your first turn in any combat, you can Hide as a reaction.

Assassinate[edit]

At 11th, you learn to kill with unparalleled precision. When you use your Sneakstrike on a creature that is surprised, you gain advantage on the attack roll, and any hit against it becomes a critical hit.

Impostor[edit]

At 14th level, you gain the ability to unerringly mimic another person's speech, writing, and behavior. You must spend at least three hours studying these three components of the person's behavior, listening to speech, examining handwriting, and observing mannerisms.

Your ruse is indiscernible to the casual observer. If a wary creature suspects something is amiss, you have advantage on any Charisma (Deception) check you make to avoid detection.

Unerring Strike[edit]

At 17th level, your strikes never falter. If you would have disadvantage on your attack roll, you can use your bonus action to negate any disadvantage your attack rolls would have until the end of your turn. If you use this feature, you cannot use your Sneakstrike feature on the same turn.

Sudden Death[edit]

At 20th level, your ability to assassinate becomes unparalleled. When you hit a creature that is surprised, it must succeed on a Constitution saving throw equal to 10 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier. If it fails, it takes double the damage from your attack.

Garo[edit]

Garo magic originates from a secretive tribe of robe-wearers.
Source

The way of the garo is a secret artform of infiltration, war, and magic hailing from an ancient clan originating in the far-east land of Termina. Much of what garo once were has been lost to history, but those in the clan were renowned for their ability for acquiring information while keeping their own existence all but unknown. Those who still practice this ancient art excel in supernatural abilities that would elude most. According to legend, they can even become invisible at will.

Bonus Proficiencies[edit]

Staring from 3rd level, you can speak, write, and read the Stal language. If you already know Stal, you can learn another language of your choice.

At this level, you also gain proficiency with bombs, an ancient weapon favored by garo of ages past.

Studied Strike[edit]

Beginning at 3rd level, the extra damage from Sneakstrike equals your your levels in this class + Intelligence modifier if it is positive.

Garo Magic[edit]

At 3rd level, you learn a limited and specific form of spellcasting. Your spells are cast from learning and memorization, much like those cast by a researcher.

Spells Known

At 3rd level, you learn two spells from the garo spell list. These two spells must be of 1st-level or 2nd-level.

You learn an additional garo spell at 7th, 11th, 14th, and 17th levels in this class. The spell you learn must be of a level you can cast, as shown under Max Spell Level in Table: Garo.

At every odd-numbered level you gain in this class, you can replace a garo spell you know with another garo spell you would be able to learn.

Casting Garo Spells

Unlike normal spells, casting a garo spell does not consume stamina points or magic points. You can cast one garo spell, and regain the ability to cast a garo spell after you finish a short or long rest.

Any garo spell you cast is always cast at the highest level you can cast, as shown under Max Spell Level in Table: Garo.

Spellcasting Ability

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for garo spells, since you learn your spells through dedicated study and memorization. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a spell learned through this class and when making an attack roll with one.

Motionless Invisibility[edit]

Starting at 7th level, whenever you take the Hide action you become invisible until you move, take any action, or take damage. This is a magic effect, and can be dispelled as if it was a 2nd level spell.

Multicast[edit]

Starting at 11th level, you can cast two spells granted by your Garo Magic feature before you need to complete a short or long rest.

At 17th level, you can cast three spells before needing to rest. Finally, at 20th level, you can cast four.

Unerring Senses[edit]

At 14th level, the blindsight you gained at 13th level increases in range to 30 feet. You can use your blindsight even if you are deafened.

Swift Cast[edit]

Starting at 20th level, if a garo spell normally has a casting time of 1 action, you can instead cast it with 1 bonus action.

Mystic Nomad[edit]

ld6Ctrn.png

from Sheikah that once served the Hyrulean Royal Family.
Source

The mystic nomad excels at an uncanny form of deception, exploration, and combat that is said to originate from Sheikah. It revolves around mastery of oneself and one's instincts. The most legendary of nomads can even unleash supernatural stunts using only this instinctive power drawn from within; and can even cast spells without consuming magical energy or other resources.

Bonus Proficiency[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain proficiency with the disguise kit. If you are already proficient, you can gain proficiency in another tool of your choice.

Fast Movement[edit]

At 3rd level, your base walking speed increases by 10 feet while you are not wearing medium or heavy armor.

At 11th level, this increase instead becomes 20 feet.

At 17th level, this increase instead becomes 30 feet.

Mystic Combat[edit]

At 3rd level, you begin to learn the combat techniques of the mystic nomad, and gain the following benefits:

  • You gain the Martial Artist Talent. If you already have this Talent, you gain another of your choice.
  • You can treat darts you throw as though they were light melee weapons for the purpose of two-weapon fighting.
  • You can draw or sheathe darts or any light weapons on your person without using your interaction for the turn.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

Beginning at 3rd level, while you are wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, you can choose for your AC to equal 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier.

Mystic Arts[edit]

At 7th level, you begin to master the supernatural arts characteristic of legendary mystic nomads. You learn two mystic arts from the following list, and two more at 14th level. At 11th and 17th levels, you can replace one art you know with a new one.

You can use any mystic art you have learned as an action. Using any mystic art is considered to be the equivalent of casting a spell of 1st level with a somatic component, thereby requiring you to have one hand free to use it. (This remains true even if the art mimics a spell of higher level, or one with additional components.) As it is a spell equivalent, your art may be be affected by effects like counterspell, and any damage from a mystic art is considered magical.

Some mystic arts call for a saving throw. The DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your Wisdom modifier + your proficiency bonus. If any art calls for a casting ability, your casting ability is Wisdom.

Art Description
Blinding Flash You cast blinding flash. You must finish a long rest before you use this art again.
Bouncing Fish You use the Attack action against any one creature you can detect within 20 feet of you, ignoring the normal reach or range of your weapons.
Burst Grenade You throw a magical explosive ball to any space you can see within 30 feet of you. Either now, or as a reaction made before the start of your next turn, you can cause this ball to detonate. When it detonates, any creature within 5 feet of it must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or take 3 (1d6) damage and be knocked prone. You can use this reaction when a creature moves into range of the explosive, causing it to potentially fall prone in the midst of its movement.
Enhance Dexterity You cast enhance ability on yourself or a willing creature you touch, but you can only choose the Cat's Grace effect.
Explosive Step Every creature within 5 feet of you must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or take 7 (2d6) thunder damage. You then teleport a distance up to your base walking speed to any point you can see.
Flawless Disguise You instantly create any disguise for yourself as if using a disguise kit. Any ability check made to see through this disguise is made with disadvantage. Once it is in place, this disguise is considered nonmagical and lasts until you use an action to return to normal. In place of using this art as normal, you can cast uncanny outfitting.
Gravity Grenade One creature you can detect within 20 feet of you must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, it takes 7 (2d6) force damage and is pulled up to 20 feet straight towards you.
Illusion Magic You cast minor illusion, or expend 2 stamina points to cast silent image.
Lightning Chain A whip you are wielding becomes charged with magical energy. Until the whip leaves your person, it is considered a magic weapon, and deals an extra 3 (1d6) lightning damage on a hit.
Magic Negation You expend 3 stamina points to cast dispel magic. If you need to make an ability check to end a spell effect from the enchantment or illusion schools, you have advantage on the check.
Mask of Truth You expend 2 stamina points to cast comprehend languages or speak with animals.
Mobility With one action, you cast longstrider and jump on yourself or a creature you can touch. You do not need to concentrate to maintain this effect, but if you use this art on another creature, the effect ends on the previously affected creature.
Needle Storm You make three ranged weapon attacks with darts, and cannot use a bonus action on the turn you use this art. Once you use this art, you must use an action specifically to "recharge" it before it can be used again.
Nondetection You cast nondetection. When you cast nondetection again with this art, the previous instance of it ends.
Shield of Faith You cast shield of faith on yourself or one creature you can touch.
Weak Point Flurry You expend 2 stamina points to take the Attack action to attempt to hit a creature's weak point with a called shot. You can only make this special attack with an unarmed strike or a light melee weapon. If the creature has a weak point and you hit it, you can make two additional attacks with the same weapon against the same creature's weak point as part of the same action, without expending additional stamina points to do so. If the creature doesn't have a weak point, this attack is no different than a regular called shot.
Whirlwind You make one unarmed strike against any or all creatures within 5 feet of you. Any swarm hit by this unarmed strike does not resist its damage.
Whisper Magic You cast message, expend 3 stamina points to cast magic mouth, or expend 5 stamina points to cast sending.

Eye of Truth[edit]

Starting at 11th level, you always have advantage on any ability check or saving throw to discern a magic illusion.

Slow Fall[edit]

Beginning at 11th level, you can use your reaction when you fall to reduce any falling damage you take by an amount equal to five times your opportunist level.

Extra Unarmed Strike[edit]

Beginning at 17th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn. You can only use this feature if both attacks are unarmed strikes or made with light weapons.

Mystic Mastery[edit]

At 20th level, you can use your bonus action to:

Skirmisher[edit]

y8ES9Zi.png
Skirmishers use agility and cunning to great effect in combat.
Source

While some opportunists focus on deception or the supernatural, nothing speaks to the skirmisher like the field of combat. Although a skirmisher possesses all the cunning of other opportunists, it is focused largely on felling foes in a direct and swift manner devoid of fancy parlor tricks. While some opportunists are busy sneaking around, and warriors of valor are shouting their silly battle cries, your arrow has already pierced your enemy's throat—and to a skirmisher, that's all that matters.

Flanking Strike[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, you become able to use your Sneakstrike more easily and more effectively.

The damage from your Sneakstrike equals your levels in this class + your Dexterity modifier.

You can perform a Sneakstrike on a target if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn’t incapacitated, and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Fighting Style[edit]

At 7th level, you gain one Fighting Style of your choice that is available to the Hyrulean fighter class.

Slip Through[edit]

Starting at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge effects that most mortals could only overcome with brute force. When you would be forced to make a Strength saving throw, you can choose to make a Dexterity saving throw in its place.

Swiftness[edit]

By 11th level, you react so quickly in battle it sometimes seems like others are moving in slow motion. You have advantage on any initiative roll you make. If your campaign uses static initiative, you instead gain a +5 bonus to your initiative score.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 11th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Willful Fortitude[edit]

At 14th level, you gain proficiency in your choice of either Constitution saving throws or Wisdom saving throws.

Extra Strike[edit]

Beginning at 17th level, you can use your Sneakstrike feature up to twice on each of your turns.

Battlefield Phantom[edit]

Starting at 20th level, you can become so cunning and swift in battle that you are as a wisp, a specter, and a force that transcends logic or conventional limitations.
