Red Mage Maneuver
As a practitioner of both martial maneuvers and arcane knowledge, you can use a number of exclusive maneuvers that combine both fields. At 1st level, you know two such manuevers: the Arcane Jolt and Lunging Riposte.
- Arcane Jolt
You can channel your magical resolve into a jolt of pure magic that zaps through your enemies. You learn a new attack option that you can use with the Attack action. This special attack is a ranged spell attack with a range of 30 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Intelligence modifier to its attack and damage rolls. On a hit, the attack deals 1d6 force damage.
When you gain the Extra Attack feature, this special attack can be used for any of the attacks you make as part of the Attack action.
- Lunging Riposte
Once on each of your turn when you make a melee weapon attack against a creature, you can increase your reach for that attack by 10 feet.
Alternatively, when you make an opportunity attack against a creature, you can increase your reach for that attack by 10 feet.
Immediately after the attack which you applied this option, you move up to 10 feet toward the target, as a part of the same action, bonus action, or reaction. This movement does not trigger an opportunity attack.
By 2nd level, your expertise on magical knowledge allows you to cast spells.
- Spell Slots
The Red Mage table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a 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
At 2nd level, you know two 1st-level Spells of your choice from the red mage spell list at the end of the class description. The red mage spell list is divided into two list, the Dark Mana spell list and Light Mana spell list. The two spells you know at 2nd level must be one from the Dark Mana spell list and one from the Light Mana spell list.
The Spells Known column of the Red Mage table shows when you learn more red mage 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 red mage spells you know and replace it with another spell from the red mage spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
- Spellcasting Ability
Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your red mage spells, since their power derives from memorization. You use your Intelligence whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Intelligence modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a red mage spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.
Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier
Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier
- Spellcasting Focus
You can use a melee weapon you are proficient in as a spellcasting focus for your red mage spells.
The red mage spell list is divided into two lists: the Dark Mana spell list and the Light Mana spell list. When you cast a spell from either list, you can channel the magical energy from the spell, entering the state known as the Mana state.
There are two Mana states, depending on the spell that triggered the state: the Dark Mana state and the Light Mana state. Both Mana states last for 1 minute or until you are incapacitated. When you enter a Mana state while you are already in another Mana state, the previous Mana state ends.
- Dark Mana State
When you cast a red mage spell in the Dark Mana spell list, you enter the Dark Mana state.
- Light Mana State
When you cast a red mage spell in the Light Mana spell list, you enter the Light Mana state.
When you enter the Light Mana state, and again as a bonus action on your turn, you can gain temporary hit points equal to your Intelligence modifier + half your red mage level (minimum of 1). You lose all temporary hit points gained this way when the Light Mana state ends.
Ability Score Increase
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 cannot increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.
Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.
