Mechromancer[edit]

2500 years ago the Mark of Making made its first appearances on the artisans and craftsmen of ancient Cyre. This soon led to the formulation of Clan Cannith and through their natural inventiveness and the ability of their marks they created their own jurisdictions within Cyre and central Khorvaire. The warforged are a relatively new race being created by House Cannith during the Last War in 965 YK for the purposes of warfare. The Warforged are sentient constructs and have free will, which earned them the same rights as human citizens in each of their homelands in 996 YK under the Treaty of Thronehold. 20 years ago a strange massive airship made of a strange metal crashed in Cyre. The House Cannith tinkerers quickly tried to dismantle the alien construct to find out how it works and to reverse engineer the new ship. After 20 years of research hardly any progress has been made. New Warforged were attempted but went mad and self deconstructed. New artisans were founded to help discover ways to build the new warforged. The new artisans found a way to graft the new warforged to their own bodies. The grafts used a carbon-based matrix for muscle and the strange metal composite from the construct for skin. The Cannith artisans that used the grafts became known as the mechromancers.

Mechanical Grafting[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you can spend time during a long rest creating mechanical grafts in order to upgrade the originally organic parts of your body. You need some combination of tinker’s tools, alchemist’s tools, smith’s tools, and jeweler’s tools alongside various other materials to create these grafts. However, you don’t have the knowledge and skill needed to make all types of grafts at any time and thus must learn how to do so over time. The level at which you unlock various graft slots is shown in the Mechromancer table. Grafts are listed with the following statistics:

  • Type: (what depth of graft is used)
  • Slot: (what slot does this graft function on)
  • Difficulty: (what roll is needed to successfully create this part)
  • Tools: (what specific tools you may need to create this graft)
  • Load: (the power needed to support this graft)
  • Materials: (any required parts you need to construct this graft. Use some amount of creativity to figure out the specifics)
  • Upgrades: (any upgrades this graft might have. Upgrades can be done during a short rest through an Intelligence check using the correct materials. The DC of this check is 5 more than the DC to originally create the graft.)

Once, during a long rest, you may attempt to create a graft that you have unlocked, using the tools and materials listed under that graft. When creating a graft, the difficulty listing under it refers to the roll needed to successfully craft the graft. This check is an Intelligence check with the DC being reduced by half your Mechromancer level rounded down. If you have already attempted or succeeded to create the given graft 3 times, you are considered proficient in the process to create it. Rolling a natural 20 or a natural 1 does not affect the outcome. Upon a failure of this check, roll a percentile die, salvaging that percent of the materials based upon gp value (the player may choose which materials they saved at the DM's discretion). Some grafts have upgrades. The upgrade may be done during a short rest using the tools listed for the graft, and using additional materials listed and a crafting DC that is 5 more than the original DC of the graft. Like the original crafting check, failure in this check destroys a percentage of the materials used.

You start the game with up to 3 partial-conversion grafts of your choice within available slots with no Difficulty higher than 10, and a face graft, which acts as a fully enclosed helmet [1] which can be retracted into your skull.

Additionally, you are considered to be a construct, and thus spells, abilities, and attacks which specifically target humanoids won't affect you. But simultaneously, healing magic will have problems working on you. Whenever a healing spell/ability or healing potion is used on you, make a Constitution Saving Throw with a DC equal to the number of grafts you currently have installed. On a successful Saving Throw, the spell/ability or potion works as normal, on a failed save, it has no effect on you.

If you would create a graft for a slot that already has a graft in it, the new graft replaces and destroys the old one.

It is at the discretion of your DM to decide if the parts you wish to use satisfy the material components of a graft.

Parts Salvage[edit]

In the process of making grafts, you are always in need of parts and materials. Starting at 1st level, you have learned much of what it takes to salvage all manner of parts from mechanical constructs. When outside of combat, you can spend several minutes attempting to salvage parts from a willing or non-living construct or a trap. Roll a percentage die and add your mechromancer level and proficiency bonus to the roll. You take the percentage from the target's weight as salvaged materials. The specific parts obtained are at the discretion of your DM.

Mechanized Flesh[edit]

Starting at 1st level while not wearing armor your AC equals 10 + Dexterity Modifier + Constitution Modifier. Additionally, your heart is only able to effectively sustain power supply to all of your grafts up to a certain point. Your maximum power load of your grafts is 5 times your Mechromancer level.

Graft Actions[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you are able to take up to your Proficiency Bonus in additional actions per turn as long as they pertain to an attack made using a graft. Actions taken this way count as your bonus action. Any attacks made this way do not get to have your attack modifier (Strength for melee and Dexterity for ranged) added to the damage. Any attacks made this way must be performed using a free hand or extremity (e.g. an attack using a leg would require one leg to be grounded and actions using a forearm need a free hand). You can only use a given graft once per turn through a graft action.

Energy Storage[edit]

You have figured out how to store power for long term applications. Starting a 2nd level, you are passively able to store 5 times your Mechromancer level energy inside a gem within a stabilizing circuit. However, you do not yet have any particularly practical uses for such highly potent energy storage. The value of the gem scales its storage capabilities:

  • 0-49gp: Up to 20 Energy
  • 50-99gp: Up to 40 Energy
  • 100-499gp: Up to 60 Energy
  • 500-999gp: Up to 80 Energy
  • 1000+: Up to 100 Energy

A gem can store up to twice its usual energy in a non-stable manner. For every hour it spends overcharged, you must roll a percentage die at a percent higher than the percent of usual power being overcharged. If the roll is failed, the gem will explode at its next discharge in an explosion of radius 5 plus 10 feet per 20 energy stored at that time. Any creature caught in the blast must make a DC 15 Constitution Saving Throw or take 1d6 force and lightning damage for every 20 energy stored at the time of the explosion and half on a successful save. The minimum damage is 1d6 split lightning and force damage.

Mechanist's Focus[edit]

Your experiments with energy storage have led you to create a staff through which you are able to channel energy for many uses. Starting at 3rd level, you can spend a long rest affixing a storage gem onto a staff with 6 slots for additional grafts which are unlocked based upon your Mechromancer level. The level at which you unlock these slots is shown in the Mechromancer table.

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.

Graft Casting[edit]

You have discovered that you are able to create singular controlled effects using energy you have stored. Starting at 5th level, you learn how to encode evocation spells from the Mechromancer spell list into your Mechanist’s Focus or into grafts and can cast them using energy. You must spend time during a long rest researching a spell (you can both craft a graft and research a spell during a long rest simultaneously). The research (Intelligence check) DC and energy cost scales based upon spell level:

  • Cantrip: DC 12 minus half Mechromancer level rounded down, 1 energy
  • 1st-level: DC 17 minus half Mechromancer level rounded down, 5 energy
  • 2nd-level: DC 22 minus half Mechromancer level rounded down, 10 energy
  • 3rd-level: DC 27 minus half Mechromancer level rounded down, 20 energy
  • 4th-level and on: cannot be learned or cast

Spell Save DC = 8 + Proficiency Bonus + Intelligence modifier

Spell Attack Modifier = Proficiency Bonus + Intelligence modifier

When you cast a spell, ignore its material costs unless it is a Misc. spell. A spell doesn’t scale as it would with higher levels (cantrips are always cast as if you are 1st-level), and you cannot cast it using higher spell slots. Spells cast with your mechanist's focus use actions as they normally would and those cast from other grafts use graft actions. Spell cast from grafts cost 3 more energy and spells cast from mechanical arm grafts cost 5 more energy.

Full-Conversion Grafting[edit]

You have learned enough about how various parts of the body function such that you can totally convert a part of yourself into machine. Starting at 6th level, you now have the ability to create grafts which are total conversions of your flesh. Additionally, you can upgrade Partial-Conversion grafts to Full-Conversion grafts within a short rest or alongside other pursuits in a long rest, as long as you have the needed materials.

Improvised Construction[edit]

Your ability to craft grafts has allowed you some modicum of understanding how to build useful implements in a pinch. Starting at 7th level, you can use an action to build a temporary implement using various materials and 10 energy. Such implements include:

  • A small explosive which can be thrown to deal 2d6 force damage and 2d6 fire damage to all creatures within a 15 foot square * up to 40 feet away unless said creatures succeed in a DC 15 dexterity saving throw in which case they take half damage.
  • A small repair pack which can be used to heal a construct 1d8 plus your Intelligence modifier or heal any other creature half that much.
  • A spring-loaded lance which has a single use, plus 8 to hit and finesse and deals 2d8 piercing damage on a hit.
  • Anything that is particularly reasonable to make within about 30 seconds.

Additionally, you may add your Wisdom modifier to the Intelligence checks made to craft grafts.

Multitasking[edit]

Your experiences in building complicated machinery efficiently has given you the ability to multitask. Starting at 9th level, during a long rest wherein you are crafting a graft and/or researching a spell, you can make the given check at advantage or choose to pursue another graft and/or research another spell. In combat, you can take your Intelligence modifier (min. of 1) reactions (You do not gain these reactions in addition to the normal reaction).

Improved Salvage[edit]

You have spent enough time salvaging materials that you have learned several “tricks of the trade.” Starting at 10th level, you can roll percentage for salvaging materials twice and take the higher roll whenever you salvage materials and add twice your proficiency to the roll.

Modular Grafting[edit]

Your skills with producing grafts for yourself has reached the point that you can make grafts almost entirely interchangeable. Starting at 11th level, you can produce modular grafts, meaning that they can be swapped for another graft within combat as a bonus action. Additionally, during a short rest, you can spend 50 energy to regain hit points equal to the roll of 2 of your hit die (but not using your hit die).

If you would craft a graft for a slot which contains a modular graft, the modular graft is removed but not destroyed.

Multicasting[edit]

Your ability to quickly cast spells has reached a pinnacle. Starting at 13th level, you can expend additional energy to cast more than one spell during an action from a given source. You are able to cast up to your half your Intelligence modifier rounded up additional copies of a spell per action from a given source. The additional cost to cast each spell beyond the first scales with its level and the number of prior copies of that spell:

  • Cantrip: 5 energy (10 for the second copy, 15 for the third and so on)
  • 1st-level: 10 energy (20 for the second copy, 30 for the third and so on)
  • 2nd-level: 20 energy (40 for the second copy, 60 for the third and so on)
  • 3rd-level: 35 energy (70 for the second copy, 105 for the third and so on)

Spell cast from grafts cost 3 more energy to multicast and spells cast from mechanical arm grafts cost 5 more energy; this additional cost also scales as noted above.

Alternative Power[edit]

Having discovered that power is key to the more potent abilities you possess, you have discovered new ways to supply this necessity. Starting at 14th level, you are now able to produce cores capable of generating their own energy as well as grafts that generate energy.

Modified Casting[edit]

Your ability to cast spells has reached previously bounded heights. Starting at 15th level, your evocation spells can be molded to damage only those you wish them to. A number of creatures of your choice, up to your Intelligence modifier, which are caught within one of your spells instead take half damage on a failed save and no damage on a successful save.

Dismantling[edit]

Your salvaging skills have reached the degree that you are able to disassemble mechanical constructs within combat. Starting at 17th level, you gain the ability to take the dismantle action.

Dismantle: Attempt to systematically remove pieces from a mechanical construct quickly enough that it may be too fast for it to react. Make a spell attack against the target in melee range, it must pass a constitution and dexterity saving throw simultaneously or have up to twice your weight in parts removed from it. That construct has its maximum hit points reduced by 2 of its hit dice (this includes any modifiers on those hit dice). If this would cause the construct to fall to or below 0 hit points, it dies (e.g. a construct who has 3d8+6 (20) hit points, has taken 7 damage, and fails the saving throws would die as its maximum hit points would become 7). The useful parts you gather in this process are at the discretion of your DM.

Superior Intellect[edit]

At 18th level, your time spend studying the world around you to learn the inner workings of spells have sharpened your mind to an extreme. When rolling against mind affecting conditions like charmed or frightened, and against illusions, if the spell or effect calls for a Wisdom or Charisma roll, instead of using your Wisdom or Charisma modifier, you can use your Intelligence modifier. These roll are still considered Wisdom or Charima rolls, and thus other appropriate modifiers apply. Additionally, your spell attack modifier and spell save DC get a +2 bonus.

Short Circuit[edit]

At 20th level, you can spend 100 Energy to make a melee spell attack against a target in melee range. On a miss, nothing happens and the spent energy is lost. On a hit, you create a circuit between you and the target, and start a chain reaction with the spent Energy. For every gem you have installed, this does a d20 lightning damage. Then, for every point of damage the target took, you regain 10 Energy.

2nd Level[edit]

Air Bubble[edit]

1 actions

30 feet

S

1 hour

An object or creature in range is surrounded with a 2-foot-diameter sphere of clean, pure air for the duration, which suppresses water or unclean air. When cast on a creature, the air bubble surrounds the target's head or face. As the air is always clean, it is scentless even in the presence of overwhelming odor. The sphere stays with the target, though a creature can choose to avoid the air bubble if it wishes.

This effect enables a creature to breathe when it otherwise could not, such as while underwater. The target is effectively immune to any damage that relies on smell, inhalation, odors, or gaseous contact with the face. A fragile object surrounded by this sphere of air is similarly protected from smoke or water.

Energy (50)

Destabilize[edit]

1 action

40 feet

S,M (an energy storage gem with energy stored within it, which is consumed)

Instantaneous

You disable much of the stabilizing features of a storage gem so that it can be “safely” thrown. Make a ranged spell attack. On a hit, the gem explodes in a small scale dealing 1d6 force damage for every 5 energy stored within the gem, rounded down to nearest multiple of 5.

Discharge[edit]

Energy (at least 5)

Instantaneous

You release a controlled electrical burst from a storage gem and channel the power through your mechanist's focus. Make a melee spell attack. On a hit, deals lightning damage in a combination of dice of your choice. The cost of a die is the same as its maximum roll (e.g. a d6 costs 6 energy) and each die beyond the first costs 1 additional energy, progressively (e.g. casting fireball would normally cost 20 energy and it can deal 8d6 in a 20 foot sphere. It would cost 76 energy to do 8d6 with discharge due to the 6 needed for each die and 1, 2, 3, and so one for the additional dice).

Self-Destructive Chest Beam[edit]

1 action and 1 bonus action

5 feet per 10 Energy consumed

S,M (applicable core which is consumed if the energy tolerance is exceeded), Energy (40 or more)

Instantaneous

Channel a vast quantity of energy into a singular cylindrical beam emitted from the chest which travels at half the speed of light. The length of the beam is 5 feet per 10 energy consumed up to 250 feet beyond which, the width of the beam increases by 10 feet for every 50 additional energy. This beam burns a hole clear through most nonmagical materials up to a foot thick per 5 energy consumed within the cylinder. For every 40 energy consumed, roll a d6 and tally the result, subtracting from the pool as damage is dealt.

Perform the following in order until the pool is empty:

1) Check each line of the beam and note the first creature(s) which are met by the beam

2) For each of those creatures, if that creature's space is entirely within the beam, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 plus 1 for every 40 energy consumed to cast this spell. That creature may add 10 to its roll for every size is it above medium and 5 for each of its immunities to fire, force, and lightning damage. If the creature is fully immune to all of these types of damage, it soaks a fraction of the damage remaining based upon how much of the beam it blocks (this is just the number of lines the creature occupies divided by the number of lines total which remain unblocked) that creature is treated as if it has already taken damage. If the creature fails this save, it is instantly vaporized. A creature only needs to make this save once.

3) Repeat 1) and 2) until each line contains a creature which wasn't vaporized.

4) Each creature currently affected by the beam which has not taken damage from it makes another Constitution saving throw against your spell save DC then takes up to a fraction of the damage remaining based upon how much of the beam it blocks (e.g. a large creature entirely within the beam making this save when the beam is 15 feet wide would only take up to 2/3 of the damage). This damage is halved on a successful save. A creature only needs to make this save once and only takes damage once. A creature always takes an equal amount of fire, force, and lightning damage and only as much is needed to kill it, if possible (e.g. if the pool contains 10 points, and the only creature affected has 6 hit points but is immune to fire damage, 3 points are deducted from the pool to kill the creature). Creatures that die this way are vaporized.

5) Repeat until either there are no more points in the pool or there are no more lines which do not contain a creature which has already taken damage.

When a creature is vaporized by this spell every nonmagical object it is carrying is also vaporized.

If the energy that is consumed exceeds the energy tolerance of the core, said core is destroyed, otherwise roll a percentage die and add your Proficiency bonus, Intelligence modifier, and Constitution modifier to the roll. If the total roll is less than the percentage of the core’s energy tolerance used for this spell, the core is destroyed. In the event of the core being destroyed, the Mechromancer is staggered, losing half its movement speed and being unable to take actions outside of moving for 1d4+2 turns.
