At first level, you gain access to the mythical flamethrower called the Phlogistinator. This weapon bonds to you and only you are able to wield it. And You can summon it with a 1-minute ritual. It's also almost indestructible not being able to be destroyed while you are wielding it. and only being able to be destroyed by a 9th level radiant spell when you are not wielding it. This applies to any weapon made from the same material as well.
It feeds off your strength. And you have to use your Strength to control and aim with it. you are proficient with this weapon.
- Basic Attack
Is a ranged weapon attack with a 15 ft range able to attack one Creature at a time. It deals fire damage based on your level starting with 1d4 fire damage and is classified as a heavy, two-handed, weapon. Another small detail to this specific weapon is that attacking within melee range does not impose disadvantage.
A creature that takes damage from The Phlogistinator takes the Afterburn damage shown on the chart in fire damage at the start of each of its turns, not stacking with itself. A creature can end this damage by using its action to make a DC Dexterity check equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier to extinguish the flames or until it has lasted 2 times your Charisma modifier in rounds. Additional hits from this weapon will restart the duration of the afterburn.
At second level you realize that the full potential of this weapon is untapped. You gain access to it by the guise of Mmmph Points. You can spend Mmmph Points in multiple ways, and get them back to base after a long rest. And you gain back a quarter of your points rounded up on a short rest. Also up to your base. Or get Mmmph Points equal to the creatures CR (Rounded up to a full number) when you kill a creature. This can stack above your base Mmmph Points. When your Mmmph Points are above base rests do nothing to your Mmmph Points. You can spend these points to fuel various Mmmph features. You start knowing three such features: WM1, Spray and Pray, Focus Flame. You can only use 1 Mmmph feature per attack unless specified otherwise.
Some of your Mmmph features require your target to make a saving throw The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:
Mmmph save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your cha modifier
WM1. When you are about to make a normal single-target attack with a Phlogistinator, you can use 1 Mmmph point. to make your attack act in a 5-foot-wide 15 feet long line in front of you. penetrating any creature standing in that line dealing damage as normal.
Spray and Pray. When you are about to make a normal single-target attack with a Phlogistinator, you can spend 2 Mmmph points to, spray everything in a 15 ft. cone. Each creature in the area must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or take the flamethrower's normal damage.
Focus Flame. When you are about to make a normal single-target attack with a Phlogistinator, you can spend 2 Mmmph points to focus down on that single target and deal double damage for that one attack, and the Afterburn save DC for that creature gets +2 the DC effect does not stack.
At 3rd level, you can choose a Strategy with your weapon. Choose between Lonewolf or Infernal Protection, both detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at the 6th, 10th, 14th level.
Ability Score Improvement
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.
You are the master of fire and you can start it quickly:

- You can breathe smoke like normal air.
- Using a tinderbox to light a torch - or anything else with abundant, exposed fuel - takes a bonus action.
- You always have fuel for a tinderbox.
- Lighting any other fire takes 1 action instead of 1 minute.
- You can conceal a tinderbox on your person even if stripped naked.
- When trowing an oil flask you can double the range and you are proficient with it. Also, the additional fire damage is equal to your afterburn damage.
