You have attuned yourself to the forces of light and darkness, and are able to control them to some degree. As a bonus action, you can alternate between Light Stance and Dark Stance and gain access to features depending on which Stance you are currently utilizing. You may choose a Stance during a short or long rest as well.
- Light Stance - You gain 1d4 temp hitpoints for every Monochronmancer level at the start of combat, and you may roll a number of additional dice equal to half of the spell's level, rounded down when healing with magic.
You gain access to your Cleric spell list.
- Dark Stance - You gain a total of double your proficiency bonus to hit and treat immunity as resistance and resistance as normal and you gain access to your Warlock spell list.
Somehow, one way or another, you found yourself on the thin line that separates the ever-clashing forces of light and darkness. How it happened doesn't matter, but the fact remains you have obtained power only you can wield.
At 1st level, you know six cantrips of your choice from the Cleric and Warlock spell lists. You learn additional Cleric and Warlock cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the monochromancer table.
The Monochromancer table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these monochromancer spells, you must expend a spell slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.
Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher
You know three 1st level spells of your choice from the monochromancer spell list. The Spells Known column of the monochromancer table shows when you learn more monochromancer spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the monochromancer spells you know and replace it with another spell from the monochromancer spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your monochromancer spells, as the strength of your spells is reliant on your ability to effectively control the forces you wield. You use your Wisdom modifier whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a monochromancer spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one:
- Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency modifier + your Wisdom modifier
- Spell attack modifier = your proficiency modifier + your Wisdom modifier
You can use an arcane focus or holy symbol as a spellcasting focus for your monochromancer spells.
Day and Night
The passing of time now fuels your strength. Beginning at 2nd level, you are granted certain bonuses depending on the time of day. These bonuses are constant and apply regardless of whether or not you are inside or outside. For planes that do not have a day and night cycle, this feature does nothing.
