Oath of the Hand (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
The Hand is one of twelve closely-guarded fighting styles, known as the Zodiac Of Pain. The Hand focuses on supporting allies and warding away enemies. It also involves an oath of fealty to the original twelve adventurers who were the Zodiac Of Pain, as they have become lesser deities. Originally, the Zodiac Of Pain referred to twelve adventurers who used dark magic to slaughter the forces of darkness. They each founded their own school of combat, and they each chose twelve others to lead their school. The hierarchy of a Zodiac Of Pain school is twelve ranks, each containing twelve students who are sub-ranked within that rank. When a student feels ready, they can challenge the one from the rank above that corresponds to thier sub-rank to a duel. If the challenger wins, they swap places. If they lose, they decrease in the standings of their rank. When a student is in the twelfth rank, they can challenge a master. If they win, they become a master too and the school searches for a new recruit. A student has twelve years to learn the ways of their Zodiac Style and to become a master, and if they fail they are killed to keep the order a secret.
