Magical Child[edit]

Magical child is also known as magical girl and magical boy. While the former is more common, the latter exist as well.

Magical Gift[edit]

Magical child obtains or grew up with magical power hidden away. They often gain the power from a life changing event. They often fight for a clause they believe in and achieve their goal after a long struggle. By utilizing their magical power, they can transform into another form, which is more battle-ready. Without using their unusual magic power, they have limited power and could barely be useful in fights.

Fighting Style[edit]

You adopt a particular 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.

  • Archery

You gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls you make with ranged weapons.

  • Blind Fighting

You have blindsight with a range of 10 feet. Within that range, you can effectively see anything that isn't behind total cover, even if you're blinded or in darkness. Moreover, you can see an invisible creature within that range, unless the creature successfully hides from you.

  • Defense

While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.

  • Dueling

When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

  • Great Weapon Fighting

When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

  • Interception

When a creature you can see hits a target, other than you, within 5 feet of you with an attack, you can use your reaction to reduce the damage the target takes by 1d10 + your proficiency bonus (to a minimum of 0 damage). You must be wielding a shield or a simple or martial weapon to use this reaction.

  • Protection

When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.

  • Superior Technique

You learn one maneuver of your choice from among those available to the Battle Master archetype. If a maneuver you use requires your target to make a saving throw to resist the maneuver's effects, the saving throw DC equals 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Dexterity modifier (your choice.)

You gain one superiority die, which is a d6 (this die is added to any superiority dice you have from another source). This die is used to fuel your maneuvers. A superiority die is expended when you use it. You regain your expended superiority dice when you finish a short or long rest.

  • Thrown Weapon Fighting

You can draw a weapon that has the thrown property as part of the attack you make with the weapon.

In addition, when you hit with a ranged attack using a thrown weapon, you gain a +2 bonus to the damage roll

  • Two-Weapon Fighting

When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.

  • Unarmed Fighting

Your unarmed strikes can deal bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier on a hit. If you aren't wielding any weapons or a shield when you make the attack roll, the d6 becomes a d8.

At the start of each of your turns, you can deal 1d4 bludgeoning damage to one creature grappled by you.

Pseudo Spellcasting[edit]

When you obtain or discover your magic at 1st level, you have learned to use the magical power to cast spells. See Spells Rules for the general rules of spellcasting and the Spells Listing for the Magical Child spell list. However, pseudo spellcasting can only be done while transformed with Magical Identity.

Spell Slots The magical child table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your magical child 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.

For example, if you know the 1st-level spell magic missile and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast magic missile using either slot.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher You know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the Magical Child spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Magical Child table shows when you learn more magical child spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For instance, when you reach 5th level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the magical child spells you know and replace it with another spell from the magical child spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

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

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Magical Identity[edit]

Also starting at 1st level, your power gives you a unique identity. Using these identities also enables you to transform and use Pseudo Spellcasting. You also obtain both offense and defense means. Choose one of the identities below. Your choice grants you features at 1st level and again at 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th level. Magical Identities
