Mistborn[edit]

Coin after coin slams into the troll, launched from the small female human shrouded in a black cloak. Roaring, the troll collapses into a bloody heap. A smug halfling sits in the corner of the tavern, watching the emotions in the room grow ever tenser. When the tension finally leads to violence, the halfing silently laughs and quickly leaves the inn. The goblin slams slash after slash into the elf, even as more wounds form, the old wounds are healed. The elf slams a punch into the goblin's face sending him flying. All of these characters are Mistborns, masters of the metals. Channeling the power of Preservation through the metals, Mistborns are forces to be reckoned with in every situation.

Idea[edit]

You create a Mistborn character if you want a character that has a lot of money to throw around (literally). There are two ways to become Mistborn the first way is to have ingested a nugget of Lerasium (explained in multiclassing) or to inherit it from your parents and have allomantically snapped.

Mistborn Features[edit]

Metallurgy[edit]

At level 1, you have a set of metallurgist's tools, and understand metals. You understand basic alloys and properties of most metals. Using an allomantic vial or a small allomantic vial, you can create a vial of metals (A vial holds 8 ounces, while a small vial holds 1 ounce). During a long or short rest, you can fill that vial with ounces of any combination of allomantic metals until that vial is full. You can drink one of these vials on your turn (A small vial takes a bonus action, while a vial takes a whole action) each ounce of metal that you ingest grants you 1 metal slot in that metal (To your maximum metal store).

Burning[edit]

At 1st level, you gain the ability to tap into the power of Preservation contained in the metals you consume. You are able to ingest and burn (use) a number of different metals as shown in the Understood Metals column of the Mistborn table.

When you drink vials of metals, you gain slots based on the contents of the vial you drank. The maximum number of slots you can gain for each metal you understand is listed in the Maximum Slots Per Metal column of the Mistborn table. If by drinking a vial of metals, you would have gained slots beyond your capacity for that metal, the access is wasted and destroyed.

You can control the rate at which you burn your reserves, for metals that allow different rates of burning. For those metals, you can them only at a weak or strong burn, until you reach level 7 and unlock flaring. The faster you burn your metals, the stronger their effect is. The metals you use can be divided into two categories, action metals, and duration metals. Both types of metals are described in the Metals section later in this document, containing all the possible metals, their abilities, and rates of burning.

At the beginning of your turn, you can use a bonus action to start, stop, or alter the rate of burning a duration metal. Multiple duration metals can be burned together but you can only start, stop, or alter the rate of one metal per turn. Each metal you start burning will continue to burn, providing its effectד and consuming metal slots, until you either use a bonus action to stop it or deplete your metal reserve of that metal.

Action metals are consumed in a burst, you can use an action to tap into your metal reserve, and activate its effect immediately. When an ability in this class causes a creature to make a save that does not have a set DC, use your allomantic save DC which is equal to 8 + Your proficiency bonus + Your wisdom modifier


Metal Sickness

If you leave metals in your system when you go to sleep they will poison you.

Impure Metal Burning Sleeping Metal Sickness
No Negative Effects 0 to 10 ounces of metals left in your system.
Minor Metal Sickness: add one level of exhaustion 10 to 20 ounces of metals left in your system.
Moderate Metal Sickness: add two levels of exhaustion 20-50 ounces of metals left in your system.
Major Metal Sickness: add three levels of exhaustion 50-90 ounces of metals left in your system.
Deathly Metal Sickness: add four levels of exhaustion >90 ounces of metals left in your system.

Fighting Styles[edit]

At 2nd level, you adopt a particular style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options, you cannot adopt the same style twice even if you have a chance to receive another fighting style.

Archery

You gain a +2 bonus to all attack rolls made with a ranged weapon.

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.

Two-Weapon Fighting

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

Stronger Allomancer

Push and Pull attacks gain 1d4 to the damage roll.

Allomantic Specialty[edit]

At level 3, you choose an Allomantic Specialty: Temporal Allomancer, Battle Allomancer, or Mental Allomancer. This choice gives you additional abilities at levels 6, 11, and 17.

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]

At 5th level, Whenever you choose the attack action on your turn, you may perform 2 attacks instead of 1.

Flaring[edit]

At 7th level, When you begin to burn a metal or change the level of your burn, you may burn it at the flare level (if the used metal has this property).

Allomantic Reflexes[edit]

At 9th level your understanding of metals allows you to further enhance your reflexes while burning them. If an enemy moves to a point inside of or leaves a 20-foot sphere around you, you can expend your reaction to activate the weak form of one of your action metals (this burns twice as many of your stores as normal). You need to finish a short rest before you can use this feature again. At level 18 You can use the feature twice. The action metal used must have a weak power level defined.

Improved Metallurgy[edit]

At 10th level, you become more skilled in the manipulation of metal mixtures and compounds. When you create a vial of metal you can use a large vial [2.56 lbs]. (Stores 16 ounces and requires an action and a bonus action to drink). Also, you may treat any of your vials as containing one additional ounce maximum when creating it and ingesting it.

Evasion[edit]

Beginning at 13th 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.

Quick Allomancy[edit]

At level 14 you can perform an additional allomantic action on your turn. (This burn cannot be at flare level) You need to finish a short rest before you can use this feature again.

Atium[edit]

At level 15, you now can ingest and burn Atium. This metal is the physical body of the ancient god Ruin and is very expensive to find, and even more challenging to mine. Because of this, it costs 700 GP to acquire an ounce of atium. (Atium does not require a slot in the Understood Metals)

One With Preservation[edit]

You have mastered the ability to gain power from the very air itself. At level 20 you can call on the power of Preservation. White mists start seething out and back into your body, fill 2 of your metal slots to your metal slots maximum. You can also push and pull metals that are inside of, or impaled in living creatures, push on Aluminum, and affect the minds of people wearing aluminum helmets with Zinc and Brass. You need to finish a long rest before you can use this feature again.

Allomantic Specialties[edit]

Mistborns have many abilities utilized by all, but some specialize in specific abilities.

Temporal Allomancer[edit]

A temporal Allomancer utilizes Gold, Electrum, Bendalloy/Cerrobend, and Cadmium to see into the near future or manipulate how time travels near them. Through this use of manipulation, they are always one step ahead on the battlefield and in peacetime.

Masks of Gold

Beginning at 3rd level, when use you the ability of gold you may choose two important decisions or choose another choice from your important decision you already chose. An additional shadow appears that matches what you would be like in either of those cases. When you use the second ability of gold you may adopt one of your shadow's personalities and can switch between them as a bonus action.

Chronostamina

Starting at 3rd level, you are not affected negatively by changes in time travel speed such as the lethargy caused by the end of haste or the leaving or entering cadmium or bendalloy bubbles. Additionally, you are unaffected by the slow spell and the time stop spell. The effect of a cadmium bubble still affects you.

Splitting the Shadow

Beginning at 6th level, you deepen your understanding of electrum and use it to counter the predictions of your enemies. You may choose two courses of action when you burn electrum. Additionally, while you are burning electrum, once per round when a creature has advantage on an attack against you, you may cause that creature to lose that advantage.

Efficient Temporal Burning

Starting at 11th level, you learn to burn Cadmium and/or Cerrobend/Bendalloy at a more efficient level, gaining the same effects for less expended metal. When you are maintaining a sphere of Cadmium or Cerrobend/Bendalloy you only have to burn one slot per round to maintain your sphere.

Potent Temporal Manipulation

Beginning at 17th level, you learn to make you Cadmium and Cerrobend/Bendalloy much more potent. A creature in your Cadmium bubble suffers a -4 penalty to AC and Dexterity saving throws instead of a -2 penalty and must roll a 15 or higher to cast a spell with a casting time of one action. A creature in your Cerrobend/Bendalloy bubble gains a +4 bonus to AC instead of a +2 and can perform two additional actions on each of its turns.

Battle Allomancer[edit]

A battle Allomancer is a force to be reckoned with, a blur of metal as blade after blade slips past them, deflected by their metals. Their blades slam with supernatural power, and their enhanced body can take far more of a beating than the normal human.

Metal Deflection

At level 3, as long as you are burning iron or steel, your armor class increases by 2 against enemies wearing or wielding metal. An enemy can make an intelligence check against your Allomantic save DC to realize that you are affecting his metal and act accordingly.

Martial Knowledge

At level 3, you add your proficiency bonus to Intelligence checks related to combat and warfare.

Efficient Allomancing

At level 6, when you perform the attack action on your turn, you can use your bonus action to activate an action metal's effect at the weak level (You cannot activate metals without the weak power level). Alternatively, when you use your action to perform an allomantic effect, you can use your bonus action to perform one melee weapon attack.

Combat Allomancing

At level 11, when you attack with a metal weapon other than a coin while burning iron or steel, you can spend 1 slot of either of those metals to deal your Wisdom modifier in additional damage of the damage type that the weapon or coin deals.

Synergistic Burning

At level 17, once per turn after you perform an attack, you can give yourself advantage on your next allomantic attack against the enemy you attacked or give the enemy you attacked disadvantage on the next save against your allomantic effects. Alternatively, once per turn, after you activate your allomantic powers, you can grant yourself advantage on your next weapon attack against the same enemy. You need to finish a short rest before you can use this feature again.

Mental Allomancer[edit]

A mental allomancer takes advantage of the mental allomantic abilities to manipulate people or crush their enemies' wills.

Master Manipulator

At level 3, you gain proficiency in your choice of Persuasion or Deception.

Two-Pronged Manipulation

At level 3, when you make a CHA check against a creature you have effected with Brass or Zinc within the last 12 seconds you have advantage on that check. If you already have advantage on that check you may add your wisdom mod to the check.

Subtle Allomancy

At level 6, when you manipulate a person's emotions, that person has disadvantage on any check to notice that you are affecting his emotions. The enemy also has disadvantage on all saves to resist your mental manipulation.

Quick Thinking

At level 11, you can use a reaction after a creature moves or performs an action and burn brass or zinc (at strong level) to give one enemy disadvantage on all attack rolls for this round. You must burn twice as much metal as you normally would from burning the metal at strong power level.

Crushing Emotions

At level 17, when you burn zinc or bronze at strong or flare level and affect an enemy, you can burn 5 additional slots of that metal to force the enemy to make a WIS save, if they fail that save they are stunned for 2 rounds.
