Jumper[edit]

Jumpers are beings who were born with the inherent ability to fold their bodies into the cracks in space, and seemingly teleport across great distances. Jumpers also seem to become steadily more and more mobile on the battlefield, eventually completely ignoring detriments that would normally stop anyone else in their tracks, and slipping between their enemies blows with ease. A jumper is a fleeting being that can be found anywhere on a battlefield at any given point in time.

Creating a Jumper[edit]

When creating a jumper, some questions can help you to build your character: How did you learn your ability to jump trough space? Have you been born with that ability, or did you receive some type of magical training? Why you use your ability? To enhance your combat abilities, or to get a easy life trough stealing?

Reflexive Teleport[edit]

When you are hit by an attack, you can add your proficiency bonus to your AC as a reaction, potentially causing the attack to miss. If the attack misses, you teleport to an unoccupied place you can see within 5 feet.

Jump[edit]

At 1st level, you can use your bonus action and spend 5 feet of movement to teleport to an unoccupied space you can see within 5 feet.

This increases to 10 feet at 14th level.

Jumper Fighting Style[edit]

At 2nd level, you adopt a style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can’t take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.

Blade Dancer

When wielding one weapon in each hand, if you use your bonus action to teleport, you can make an attack with that weapon as part of the same bonus action. You add your ability modifier to the damage.

Dimensional Fencer

When wielding a weapon in one hand, and nothing in the other, you can make a dimensional lunge when you take the attack action. If you teleport at least 10 feet before making the first attack, you add a d4 to the attack roll. On a hit, the damage type is force.

Jumping Thief

When you are grappling a creature or holding an object of large size or lower, you can bring that creature or object with you when you teleport.

Dimensional Anchor[edit]

At 2nd level, you can use your bonus action to create a dimensional anchor on a creature you can see within 30 feet. A unwillingly creature can make a Dexterity saving throw against a DC equal 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier.

For 1 minute, or until you lose concentration (as if you were concentrating on a spell) you can spend your bonus action to teleport to an unoccupied space you can see within 5 feet of the anchor, using up your movement speed equal to the distance you teleport.

Blinking Evasion[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain a pool of d10's equal to your level in this class . Whenever you take damage from an attack, you can spend one die from that pool to reduce the damage taken. If you reduce the damage to 0, you teleport to a place you can see within 5 feet per die spent. You regain your dice spent after finishing a long rest.

You can spend a hit die to regain one of these dice.

Extra Attack[edit]

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

Long Jump[edit]

Also at 5th level, you improve your ability to teleport. You can cast misty step without spending a spell slot. As you gain levels in this class, your ability to teleport enhances, and you can use this feature to cast other types of teleportation spells, as shown on the table below:

Long Jump Table
Jumper Level Spell
5th misty step
9th blink
13th dimension door
17th far step

If the spell normally doesn't allow you to bring creatures with you, when you use this feature you can bring at least one creature within 5 feet with you. You can also bring unwilling targets on a failed Charisma saving throw against your jumper save DC.

You can use this feature to cast a spell twice, regaining the ability to do so after a short or a long rest.

Evasion[edit]

Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm 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.

Pattern Seeker[edit]

At 10th level, when a creature makes an attack against you after have already made a first attack, you can use your reaction to teleport 5 feet to any direction, avoiding the second attack completely.

Constant Jumps[edit]

Starting at 17th level, you can cast misty step at will, without spending a spell slot or material components.

In addition, you can spend two uses of this feature to cast teleport. Once you cast teleport using this feature, you can't do it again until you finish a long rest.

Multiple Anchors[edit]

Starting at 18th level, you can use your bonus action to create two Dimensional Anchors, instead of one. If you try to create a third one, the first one created is dispelled.

In addition, on your first turn of combat, if you teleport to an anchored creature and make a melee attack, you can make one additional attack against it.

Dimensional Walker[edit]

At 20th level, you gain the mastery over your jumping ability. You can use your Long Jump ability three times per rest. In addition, when you cast teleport using your Constant Jump feature, you can do it after a short or a long rest.

Archetypes[edit]

Blink Knight[edit]

Blink knights are jumpers that master the art of teleporting in combat, evading strikes with quick and precise dimensional jumps.

Blink

Starting at 3rd level, you gain the ability to constantly teleport in combat, avoiding strikes against you. You can activate your blinking as a bonus action. For 1 minute, you gain the following benefits:

  • You have advantage on your Dexterity checks and saving throws.
  • You can use your Dimensional Anchor in any unoccupied space you can see within range. You can teleport with the same bonus action used to create the anchor.
  • When you are hit by an attack, you can use your reaction to roll a d6. On a odd number, you take no damage from the attack.

Your blink ends early if you are knocked unconscious, or if you choose to end it as a bonus action. Once you use this ability, you can't use it again until you finish a short or a long rest.

Handheld Anchor

Starting at 6th level, you can use your bonus action to use your Dimensional Anchor on a thrown weapon or piece of ammunition you have on hand. If you hit a creature or object with an attack from the Handheld Anchor, you can teleport to it as part of that attack. On a miss, you can forgo one of your attacks to teleport to that weapon.

Distant Strike

At 11th level, you gain the ability to pass between the planes in a blink of an eye. When you use the Attack action, you can teleport up to 10 feet before each attack to an unoccupied space you can see.

If you attack at least two different creatures with the action, you can make one additional attack with it against a third creature.

Blinking Blades

At 15th level, when your teleport to your handheld anchor and end your movement within 5 feet of a creature, you can use your reaction to make an attack against that creature.

Dimensional Stalker[edit]

Dimensional stalkers use their ability to create dimensional connections and teleport to hunt and kill quickly their targets.

Bonus Proficiency

Starting at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in Survival and Stealth if you don't already have it.

Dimensional Harpoon

Dimensional Dive

Beginning at 6th level, when you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your attacks to teleport to a unoccupied space you can see within 30 feet.

If you attack after teleporting in that manner, you cause force damage.

Assassin Jump

Starting at 11th level, when attack after using your Dimensional Dive feature, you make the Attack at advantage. On a hit, you deal additional 2d8 force damage.

Dimensional Fishing

Starting at 15th level, when you are within 30 feet of a creature held by your Dimensional Harpoon, you can use your reaction to force that creature to make a Charisma saving throw against your Jump save DC. On a failed save, that creature is teleported to an unoccupied space within 5 feet of you. You can then make a melee weapon attack against it as part of this reaction.

You can use this reaction a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and you regain all expended uses of it when you finish a long rest.
