Iron Avenger[edit]

Rocketing down from the skies, an ironclad man decimates the battlefield with a brutal charge into the front lines leaving a swathe through the earth with a single attack.

An inventive tinkerer with just the solution to a difficult problem.

A titanic wall of metal built for a single purpose, destruction through raw strength.

These are the calling cards of the Iron Avengers. As varied as they are, they all have one thing in common, domination over the skies. The Iron Avengers are counted as some of the most intelligent battle masters there are. They are both leaders and soldiers.

Genius Inventors: Tinkering plays an integral role to the Iron class. Ever striving towards highly advanced combinations of arcane and mechanical, these individuals seek out the means to advance themselves and their equipment. These Avengers have little martial skill and no magical skill, but they more than make up for this with their intellect, always finding new ways to surpass the limitations of men.

The Suit: The suit is the life-blood of the Iron Avenger. Without it, an Iron Avenger is little but a man with a spear. But with it, they are a force to be reckoned with. Due to the class's dependency on the suit, losing or severely damaging it puts the Avenger in grave danger and as such, your suit should be protected at all costs, especially if you do not have the time or money to have it replaced.

Iron Suit[edit]

A suit of armor made from a blending of arcane and mechanical design that, for the right wearer, is an extremely powerful and essential tool. The creation of an Iron Suit is extremely complex and only those with a mastery of tinkering could have the faintest of chances to create or use such a tool.

At 1st level, you gain a special suit of armor, each suit is tailored for its maker and may not be used by any other creature. The armor is heavy armor and provides an armor class of 16. You have disadvantage with stealth checks while wearing the suit. There is no strength requirement for wearing the suit. It weighs 600 pounds though only encumbers you for 30 pounds. The rest of the weight is picked up by the enchantments of the suit itself.

The armor class of the suit increases as you level 1-5 AC is 16, 6-9 Ac is 17, 10-14 AC is 18, 15-19 AC is 19, 20 AC is 22 While wearing the suit, you gain a +2 to your strength score.

At 11th level, the bonus increases to +4. Additionally your unarmed strikes deals bludgeoning damage equal to 1d4 + your strength modifier while wearing the suit and whenever you may make any attack, you may make an unarmed strike as a bonus action on your turn

Repulsion Beams[edit]

The suit is equipped with a pair of repulsion beams in the palms of the gauntlets that can be used for deadly ranged attacks. At 1st level, while wearing the gauntlets of the armor, you gain the usages of specialized Repulser beams. You gain uses of different effects for these at higher levels. When you make an attack you can instead choose one of the following beams to utilize. These beams each have a range of 60 feet unless stated otherwise. You are proficient with these beams. Choose one of the effects below, then you may make a ranged attack. These attacks use your Intelligence modifier instead of your Dexterity modifier. You must declare which attack you are using before you cast the die for the attack.

Blast. At 1st level, you use a damaging beam. The beam deals 1d8 + your Intelligence modifier force damage. This damage increases when you reach 5th level (2d8), 11th level (3d8), and 17th level (4d8).

Forceful Blast. At 3rd level, You may attempt to push one creature or object away from you. On a hit, a creature that is of a size large or smaller is pushed back 5 feet and takes force damage equal to your Intelligence modifier. This damage increases when you reach 5th level adding 1d8, 11th level (2d8), and 17th level (3d8). If targeting an object that weighs less than 100 pounds that isn't being worn or carried, the object is pushed 30 feet away from you. If the object is being worn or carried by a creature, you must make the ranged attack with disadvantage contested by that creature’s Strength score. If you roll higher than that creature's Strength, you succeed and push the object 30 feet away from you.

Rapid Blast. At 3rd level, once on your turn, you can attempt to fire a pair of blasts in rapid succession. Make an attack roll for each blast, all of which must come from the same gauntlet. On a roll of a 2 or lower on the dice, your blast misfires and the repulser in that hand is disabled until a bonus action is used to make a successful DC 15 tinker's tools check to repair the hand. You may have two blasts target either the same creature or one blast for two different creatures. On a hit, these blasts deal force damage equal to 2 + your intelligence modifier. The amount of beams you fire increases as you level to three at 5th level, four at 11th level, and five at 17th level.

Harassing Blast. At 6th level, once on your turn, you may launch a single flare at a point you can see within 60 feet of you. Any creature within 5 feet of this must make a Constitution saving throw or suffer disadvantage on the first attack roll it makes until the end of their next turn.

Overcharge Blast. At 6th level, once on your turn, you can push extra charge into the gauntlet to force it to do additional damage. A creature hit by this attack takes the damage for a Blast attack and one additional damage die. On a roll of a 3 or lower on the dice, your blast misfires and the repulser in that hand is disabled until a bonus action is used to make a successful DC 15 tinker's tools check to repair the hand.
