Mantra Asura[edit]

Introduction[edit]

The Mantra Asura have fantastical powers hidden deep within them, but not many mortals have seen the Asura's true capabilities because they live for so long. Asura who completely master the power of Mantra can become so powerful, that some are mistaken for the gods that originally granted them these powers. They are often idolized as guardian angels, or even in rare scenarios, heroes if they do not hide the good they are doing. Beings who are not a member of the Asura race can obtain this power as well, if they learn to control Mantra.

Demi-God Fist[edit]

At 1st level, you learn to channel Mantra directly into your fists and unleash its power.

You gain the following benefits while you are unarmed or wielding only martial weapons and you aren’t wearing armor or wielding a shield:

  • You can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of your unarmed strikes.
  • You can roll a d6 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike. This die changes as you gain Asura levels, as shown in the Demi-God Fist column of the Asura table.
  • When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or martial weapon on your turn, you can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

Mantra has caused your body to evolve and become far more durable than most mortals. At 1st level, while you are wearing no armor and not wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Constitution modifier + either your Strength or Dexterity modifier.

Mantra Bolt[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you can fire Mantra bolts of magical energy from your hands.

You gain a new attack option that you can use with the Attack action. This special attack is a ranged spell attack with a range of 30 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Dexterity or Strength modifier to its attack and damage rolls. Its damage is radiant, and its damage die is a d6. This die changes as you gain Asura levels, as shown in the Demi-God Fist column of the Asura table.

When you gain the Extra Attack feature, this special attack can be used for any of the attacks you make as part of the Attack action and your bonus action attack.

Heavy Swing[edit]

At 3rd level, you put everything you have into your next strike. Before you use an attack, you can declare a Heavy Swing. Once declared, all unarmed attacks you make this turn deal one extra die of the damage it would normally do. All attacks against you have advantage until the start of your next turn.

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.

Extra Attack[edit]

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

Mantra Powered Strikes[edit]

Starting at 5th level, your unarmed strikes count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Unwavering Will[edit]

At 6th level, when you start your turn with zero hit points, you regain one hit point. You can do this once per long rest.

Limit Burst[edit]

Starting at 7th level, you push your body past its limit and become an unstoppable force of pure power. As an action, you can supercharge yourself with Mantra and become resistant to all damage. This lasts for 1 minute, but can end early if your are knocked unconscious or if you use a bonus action to do so. You can only use this feature once before needing a long rest.

Massive Strike[edit]

At 9th level, when you declare Heavy Swing, you can choose to have one of your attacks hit all hostile creatures within 5ft of you. When you do this, make a melee attack role against each creature within range. This ability's range increases to 10ft at 15th level.

Steps to Enlightenment[edit]

At 10th level, you begin to truly master how to use Mantra to its full potential. Taking you one step closer to Enlightenment. You can add half your proficiency bonus, rounded down, to any Saving Throws you make that doesn’t already include your proficiency bonus.

Mantra Affinity[edit]

Unbeknownst to most mortals, there are different types of Mantras. These different types of Mantra are most often associated with different emotions. Wrath, Sadness, Happiness, etc. When you reach 11th level, you choose your Mantra affinity.

Wrath Affinity[edit]

Anger is not inherently evil. Anger can drive one to noble causes: protecting the innocent, avenging injustice, or simply keeping one going through troubling times. Asura who have an affinity to Wrath Mantra are some of the fiercest warriors throughout the entire multiverse. If there is someone, or something that threatens humanity, be it physical or metaphysical, the Asura of Wrath will be the first to charge into battle. To destroy whatever evil plagues the world.

Vajra Form

At 11th level, you get your first real taste of what the Asura are truly capable of. Your Limit Burst is upgraded to a form more befitting of your Mantra Affinity. When you activate your Limit Burst, you grow two additional sets of arms to use in combat. While you have them, you gain one additional use of your Extra Attack per turn.

Mantra Bomb

At 13th level, you learn you condense and release the hurricane of power inside you. As an action, you can fire a ball a Mantra at a point you can see within 120ft and force each creature within a 20ft radius of that point to make a Dexterity saving throw. Each creature takes 8d6 radiant damage on a failed save, and half as much on a successful save. You may do this as many times equal to your Strength modifier.

Unstoppable Rage

Pride Affinity[edit]

There is nothing wrong with being prideful. Being prideful comes naturally to most civilized beings, and the Asura are no different. Asura with Pride Mantra often aim to become leaders and guide the material plane as best they can to times of ultimate peace and prosperity. While these types of Asura can often come across as self-righteous or act like they know more than their compatriots, they usually have knowledge and overall worldly understanding to back it.
