Mugen Tenshin[edit]

The Mugen Tenshin clan is a prominent clan of shinobi, located within the mountains. A secret society, only certain groups such as the Hayabusa clan, and the Black Spider clan know of them and their capabilities. The clan has existed for eighteen generations. As with all shinobi clans, the Mugen Tenshin clan is governed by a group of master shinobi, with the lower shinobi "troops" ranking from greater shinobi to lesser shinobi. The master shinobi govern the clan’s activities both within and outside the village, and are regarded with respect by other members of the clan.

Creating a Mugen Tenshin[edit]

The Mugen Tenshin has two different styles Tenjinmon and Hajinmon

Tenjinmon ("Heavenly God Gate") is the foreground perspective of Mugen Tenshin style ninjutsu. Most ninjas from the Mugen Tenshin clan belong to this perspective. Tenjinmon practitioners train in order to acquire superhuman physical strength and battle technique and are highly resistant to physical pressure. this style gets to choose Strength Save proficiency instead of Dexterity Save, and uses Strength or Dexterity for attack rolls as well.

Hajinmon ("Supreme God Gate") is the background of Mugen Tenshin style ninjutsu and is considered a secret style within the Mugen Tenshin clan. Hajinmon practitioners possess the same capabilities of Tenjinmon practitioners. However, the style is a lot less direct in attacks with emphasis on stronger ninpo abilities. The ninja of the Hajinmon style, despite possessing unbelievable powers, provide background support and loyalty to the Tenjinmon ninja. Gets to add 1d4 to all Ninpo attack rolls and damage

Torn Sky Blast (Ninpo)[edit]

A deadly ninpo technique that allows the user to generate a large lightning-like blast of energy from their hands and shoot it toward their target dealing 1d4 + Dexterity modifier (at level 11 it becomes 1d8 + Dexterity modifier). The color of the energy summoned differs from person to person. uses 1 ninpo point


you have a poll of points much like ki for a monk this pool resets completely after every long rest, and you can regain half after a short rest

Sneak Attack[edit]

Beginning at 1st level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe's distraction. Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the attack roll. The attack must use a finesse or a ranged weapon.

You don't need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn't incapacitated, and you don't have disadvantage on the attack roll.


At 1st level, choose two of your skill proficiencies, or one of your skill proficiencies and your proficiency with any of your tools. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses either of the chosen proficiencies.

At 15th level, you can choose two more of your proficiencies (in skills or with any of your tools) to gain this benefit.


At 1st level, your practice of martial arts gives you mastery of combat styles that use unarmed strikes and ninja (Shinobi/monk) weapons, which are shortswords and any simple melee weapons that don't have the two-handed or heavy property.

You gain the following benefits while you are unarmed or wielding only ninja (Shinobi/monk) 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 and monk weapons. You can roll a d4 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike or monk weapon. This die changes as you gain Mugen Tenshin levels, Level 1-4 1d4, Level 5-10 1d6, Level 11-15 1d8, Level 16-20 2d8 When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a ninja (Shinobi/monk) weapon on your turn, you can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action. For example, if you take the Attack action and attack with a quarterstaff, you can also make an unarmed strike as a bonus action, assuming you haven't already taken a bonus action this turn. Certain monasteries use specialized forms of the ninja (Shinobi/monk) weapons. For example, you might use a club that is two lengths of wood connected by a short chain (called a nunchaku) or a sickle with a shorter, straighter blade (called a kama). Whatever name you use for a monk weapon, you can use the game statistics provided for the weapon.

Gain Feat[edit]
