Shrine Maiden[edit]

[Hakurei Reimu, Shrine Maiden by 朱シオ]


Selected among many promising candidates, only those naturally gifted can become shrine maidens. Through mind-taxing training of being repeatedly possessed by various spirits, if one survives with their mind sane, they are prepared to host a part of the deity into their body. After this ritual the shrine maiden becomes the vector between her world and the world of her deity.

Shrine maiden's magic is granted by the connection they have to their deity, as well as from the communication with lesser spirits as a medium. Their occupation is primarily related to the service and wishes of her deity, gathering faith from the surrounding villages and performing rituals during festivals. Shrine maidens are primarily female, the male equivalent are simply referred to as priests.

Creating a Shrine Maiden[edit]

Shrine maidens rarely embark on an adventure, as they lack a reason to leave their shrines behind. If a disaster strikes or an opportunity arises they might be forced to leave behind their home, pursuing a different goal. When making a shrine maiden it is important to consider how and why would she embark on her journey. Is she forced to leave her past social connection behind? How far is she willing to travel? Is the religion she practices something she wants to spread or show to others? Is she ever planning to return to her shrine? Does she consider her journey as her training?

Quick Build[edit]

You can make a shrine maiden quickly by following these suggestions. First, Charisma should be your highest ability score, followed by Constitution. Second, choose the Acolyte background. Third, choose Guidance and Produce Flame cantrips.

Spellcasting[edit]

Originating from the will of the deity you house in your body, you are granted their ability to cast spells.

Cantrips[edit]

At 1st level, you know two cantrips of your choice from the druid spell list. You learn additional druid cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the shrine maiden table.

Preparing and Casting Spells[edit]

The shrine maiden 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.

You prepare the list of shrine maiden spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the druid spell list. When you do so, choose a number of druid spells equal to your Charisma modifier + your shrine maiden level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

For example, if you are a 3rd-level shrine maiden, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level spell slots. With a Charisma of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level spell cure wounds, you can cast it using a 1st-level or 2nd-level slot. Casting the spell doesn’t remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of shrine maiden spells requires time spent in prayer and meditation: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability[edit]

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your shrine maiden spells, since your magic is based on persuading spirits. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for shrine maiden spells you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Ritual Casting[edit]

You can cast shrine maiden spells as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell prepared.

Spellcasting Focus[edit]

You can use a Yoshida (Equivalent of a Druidic Focus, see “Equipment”) as a spellcasting focus for your shrine maiden spells.

Ofuda[edit]

As a shrine maiden, you are able to produce ofuda, warding papers that can be plastered onto an object or used to attack. During a long rest, you can prepare the ofuda using ink, an ink pen, and at least one sheet of paper. It takes 1 minute of inscribing the formula you knows onto a single piece of paper to create a single ofuda. A 1-ounce bottle of ink can produce up to ten ofuda. Alternatively, instead of preparing the materials, you can use your Calligrapher's Supplies along with 1 gold and 5 silver to create a single ofuda.

When you finish a long rest, you can imbue a number of ofuda up to your shrine maiden level + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier with magic, and they are then considered magical for the next 24 hour. (You can have as many ofuda imbued with magic at a time as you can imbue in one go). Imbuing a ofuda that is already imbued resets the duration. After this duration expires, the ofuda are considered ordinary pieces of paper and are still an ofuda but with no magic. No one else can use ofuda that are created by you, nor restore their magic, and are considered to be ordinary pieces of paper if they attempt to use it.

One ofuda can be plastered on an object to ward it from unwelcome creatures using an action. If plastered on the ground or wall, it affects a 5 feet x 5 feet square, centered on the ofuda. If a creature with the aberration, fiend, monstrosity, or undead type, or is a creature on the ethereal plane attempts to touch the object the ofuda is attached to, they make a Dexterity saving throw of DC equal to your shrine maiden spell save DC. On a failure, they take radiant damage equal to half of your proficiency bonus in d6 (rounded up), and are pushed back 10 feet from the object. On a successful Dexterity saving throw, they take half damage, but is still pushed. Equipment and weapons cannot benefit from this feature, and the creature must willingly touch the object to trigger the ofuda. If the object is already protected by a different shrine maiden's ofuda, another ofuda plastered onto that object has no effect. If you or anyone else remove a plastered ofuda, it loses its magic. Plastered ofuda lose their magic after 7 days, and become ordinary pieces of paper. You can reset this duration by touching them. Each plastered ofuda reduces the number of ofuda you can imbue with magic at the end of a long rest by one. For example, if you can imbue up to six ofuda, and have two ofuda currently appplied, you can only imbue at most four at the end of a long rest.

An ofuda is considered a weapon with the light and range (30/60) property, and you are considered proficient in using it. When making an attack with it, you use Charisma as the attack and damage modifier instead. Drawing an ofuda from a backpack, belt pouch, or other container is part of the attack. On a successful hit, the target take radiant damage equal to half of your proficiency bonus in d6 (rounded up). If the creature has the aberration, fiend, monstrosity or undead type, or is on the ethereal plane, double the number of dice rolled. After throwing it, whether or not it hits, it loses its magic.

Starting at 7th level, you may use a bonus action to conjure a spiritual ofuda using magic. This spiritual ofuda only lasts one minute, and functions exactly like a regular ofuda. However, you cannot recharge it, and it does not gain the benefits of Enchanted Ofuda. You can only have one of these spiritual ofudas at a time. After one minute or you throw it, whether or not it hits, the spiritual ofuda vanishes and if it was plastered on something, it is considered as if the ofuda was removed.

Kamigakari[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you can perform a ritual to channel a dead creature's soul or deity into your body. To channel a person's soul, you must know their name and what they look like. For deities, you need only know their name. You must spend at least 1 minute in concentration, after which the connection is established. For the next 10 minutes, that soul or deity will use your mouth to speak. Other people can ask the soul or deity up to 5 questions regarding present or future events, or for more specific guidance concerning a problem. How the question is answered is up to GM discretion, and they are under no obligation to answer truthfully. This connection can end early by your choice, or if your body reaches 0 hit points. You may only perform this ritual once, and regain the ability to perform it again when you finish a long rest.

During this ritual, the soul or deity may attempt to wrest control over your body. You then must make a Charisma saving throw with a DC of 15. Failure means that the soul or deity takes full control over your body for the remainder of the ritual and you can no longer end this by your choice. After which, you have no memory of what they were using your body to do. During the time, the DM (if it was a NPC) or player (if it was a dead player's character) is in full control of your character. While in control, instead of yours, they instead have the proficiencies and know the languages they had in life while using your body, and can use any of your racial or class features as they please. You are aware of attempts to take control, and can choose to end the connection immediately on a successful save to prevent more attempts.

Shamanistic Sense[edit]

At 2nd level, your natural talent of a medium is further explored and tested. Choose from Mystic Custodian, Warding Guardian, Fortune Teller, and Spirit Watcher. Your choice will grant you features at 2nd level 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th level.

Divine Bond[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, your connection to your god grows stronger and you gain some of their divine power. You learn one Cantrip of your choice from the Cleric spell list. You also can prepare one additional level 1 spell from the cleric spell list. The spells prepared by this feature do not count towards the number of prepared spells granted by Spellcasting. Spells gained through this feature cannot also be included in the Druid spell list.

To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot from the shrine maiden table of the spell’s level or higher. The spellcasting ability for these spells is Charisma. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from this list of prepared spells. You can change this list when you finish a long rest. You do not need to meditate to changing this list. You can cast these spells as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell prepared. You can use a Yorishiro as a holy symbol for these spells. The spellcasting ability for these spells is also Charisma.

You can additionally prepare one 2nd level cleric spell at 5th level, one 3rd level cleric spell at 7th level, one 4th level cleric spell at 9th level, one 5th level cleric spell at 11th level, one 6th level cleric spell at 13th level, one 7th level cleric spell at 15th level, one 8th level cleric spell at 17th level, and one 9th level cleric spell at 19th level.

Mikagura[edit]

Starting at 5th level, as an action, you learn a sacred dance to please the deity you serve. Using an action, you can start your sacred dance and select a ritual from the list below. Some are available only after you gains more levels. Target up to 3 creatures within 60 feet of you and grant them either the blessing or curse of the ritual, as listed below. If the target moves farther than 60 feet away from you, they lose the effects of blessings or curses.

At the start of your turn while Mikagura is active, you target up to 3 creatures again, and grant those targets either blessing or curse. These do not stack unless otherwise stated. Some Mikagura effects require saving throws. When you use such an effect from this class, the DC equals your shrine maiden spell save DC.

Mikagura and its effects end after one minute since it started or when you stop dancing, either by your choice (no action required by you) or if you become unconscious, paralyzed, grappled or your movement speed is reduced to zero. The blessing counts as a magical effect and can be dispelled by Dispel Magic and similar effects with DC equaling your shrine maiden spell save DC. The curse effects can be removed by Remove Curse and similar effects. During Mikagura, by using a bonus action, you are able to change a ritual into a different one. The effects of the old one will cease in the place of the new one. You must finish a short or long rest to use Mikagura again.

Every time you learn a new Mikagura ritual, the number of creatures you can target, and number of uses between rests, increases by 1.

Early Crops[edit]

  • Blessing: Targeted creatures are gains a +5 feet bonus to its movement speed, ignore terrain penalties if they move on the ground, and gain 1d8 temporary hit points. This increases to 2d8 at level 13.
  • Curse: Targeted creatures must make a Dexterity saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw, they become restrained. However, they can use their action to make a Strength saving throw against the same DC. On a success, they are freed.

You learn this ritual at 5th level.

Fortune[edit]

  • Blessing: Targeted creatures gain one Small Luck die (a d6). The creature can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes. The creature can wait until after it rolls the d20 before deciding to use the Small Luck die, but must decide before the DM announces whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Small Luck die is rolled, it is lost. A creature can have only one Small Luck die at a time.
  • Curse: Targeted creatures must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw, they receive one Small Curse. When that creature successfully land an attack, as a reaction, their target can spend one of that creature's Small Curse to force a reroll on that attack roll and take the worse result. Creatures can have any number of the Small Curses applied to them.

At 9th level your deity grants you the Crop Fertility Ritual. By changing the weather, this effect greatly improves the surrounding area's crops and vegetation within half a mile away from you. Rain comes down falling, dousing off all surrounding fires in a 200 foot cube centered on you. You automatically attempt to dose magical fires within 200 feet using your spellcasting ability at the beginning of your round when this ritual is active. The DC for magical fires is 10 + the spell's level. Failure decreases their duration by half, while success means that they are extinguished.

  • Blessing: Targeted creatures are freed from any natural weather penalties and they have advantage on the next ability check, attack roll, or saving throw they make.

A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can, and it can't willingly move to a space within 30 feet of you. It also can't take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there's nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

While in this state, using a bonus action, you can vanish from your current plane of existence and appear in the Ethereal Plane. If you're in the Ethereal Plane, using your bonus action, you can return to the plane you originated from. All your equipped items travel with you. All magical effects applied on you are halted, and are resumed when you stop being ethereal. You can remain in this state for an hour and can use this feature 4 times. If you wish to, you can extend the duration by expanding one use of this feature, the duration will increase by an hour. Additionally, you can choose to cease the effect of this feature at any time.

Additionally, you roll 1d8 equal to half your proficiency bonus rounded up and that creature gains that amount as temporary hit points.

Kekkai[edit]

Starting at 6th level, you can invoke protective spirits to from a barrier that decreases the effects of spells and ranged attacks. Whenever the enemy is casting a spell, attacks you or a creature within 10 feet of you with a ranged projectile weapon, as a reaction, you create a spherical 15 foot radius barrier with one of the following options.

  • Creatures of your choice within the barrier receive resistance to damage caused by spells.
  • The DC for creatures of your choice within the barrier to resist spells is decreased by 2.
  • Any area affecting spell with duration that would affect you is Countered. For the purpose of determining this feature's Counterspell level, use 3rd level.

Sacred Circle[edit]

Starting at 10th level, you can have the spirits produce a protective circle to ward off or seal the contents. As an action, you create a 5 foot radius, 15 foot tall cylinder of magical energy centered on a point on the ground that you see within 60 feet. This circle lasts one minute. Anything outside the circle is prevented from entering and anything inside is prevented from exiting, except sound. The DC to dispel a sacred circle using Dispel Magic or a similar effect is 15.

You can alternatively use this feature as a ritual by concentrating for at least half a minute. Every 6 seconds, you can increase the radius, height, and range by 5 feet beyond the original 5 foot radius, 15 foot tall cylinder and 60 foot range. This goes up to a maximum of a 5285 foot radius and 5215 foot tall cylinder up to 5340 feet away from you. A circle made this way lasts for one hour and the DC to dispel a sacred circle using Dispel Magic or a similar effect is 20.

You can attach an ofuda on the wall created by the sacred circle, either on the inside or outside wall, and make the Sacred Circle last for one week. You can reset this duration by touching the ofuda. You can only have up to your proficiency bonus number of sacred circles active this way at a time, and attempting to make another beyond that number automatically dispels the oldest circle.

You can use this feature twice, and you regain all uses of this feature when you finish a long rest.

Ikken[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, the spirits around you send glimpses of the future that begin to press in on your awareness and your deity appears in your dreams to communicate its will. When you finish a long rest, roll two d20s and record the numbers rolled. You can replace any attack roll, saving throw, or ability check made by you or a creature that you can see with one of these foretelling rolls. You must choose to do so before the roll, and you can replace a roll in this way only once per turn.

Each of these foretelling roll can be used only once, but you can expend a spellslot to use a used foretelling roll again. When you finish a long rest, you lose any unused foretelling rolls.

Starting at 14th level, you roll three d20s for this feature, instead of two.

Shourai[edit]

Starting at 6th level, you can invoke glimpses of the immediate future to rush into your head from the spirits. Using an action, you start to see glimpses of the future. Roll a d20 and that result becomes your shourai roll. Using a reaction, you can replace any attack roll, saving throw, or ability check made by a creature that you can see within 60 feet with your shourai roll. You must choose to do so before the roll, and you can replace a roll in this way only once per turn.

At the start of your turn, roll a new d20, and this is your new shourai roll. These glimpses of the future lasts for one minute and when it ends, you lose your shourai roll. You may only use this feature twice, and regain all uses when you finish a long rest.

Omikuji[edit]

Starting at 10th level, when you finish a long rest, you can determine what your fortune for today is. Roll a d100 on the Omikuji table, and you gain those effects until the end of your next long rest. You are allowed to reroll once, and you must take the second result.

Omikuji Table
d100 Type Effect
1 Great Curse You gain the effects of all the curses (rolls 2 - 40).
2-10 Future Curse Once, if you were to do an attack roll, saving throw or ability check, the DM can force disadvantage on that roll.

91-99 Middle Blessing For each of your ability score modifiers less than +3, they become +3.
100 Great Blessing You gain the effects of all the blessings (rolls 41 - 99).

Divine Vision[edit]

Starting at 14th level, you can see into imminent future through your senses. All of your cleric spells learned through Divine Bond receive advantage on their spellcasting attack rolls as well as on countering and dispelling spells. Additionally, the ranges and duration of those spells are doubled.

Your glimpses of the future also lets you see the optimal movement to dodge an attack and have it graze you. When an attacker that you can see hits you with an attack, you can use your reaction to halve the attack's damage against you.

Sakiburei[edit]

Starting at 18th level, you become more aware of dangers around you, as you have been forewarned by the spirits around you. You are immune to the surprised condition. You also gain advantage in all saving throws against magic and other creatures have disadvantage when attacking you while conscious.

Spirit Watcher[edit]

As your vision expands, you start to see things that normal people would not be able to. This feature focuses on observing spirits and deriving information from them. A shrine maiden choosing this Shamanistic Sense receives a number of features that can prove useful many different situations.

Necrotic Sense[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you can see any aberration, fiend, monstrosity or undead type or creature on the ethereal plane that are invisible to the normal eye that are not behind total cover.

Additionally, as an action, you can focus your awareness to this sense. Until the start of your next turn, you know the location of any aberration, fiend, monstrosity or undead type within 60 feet of you that is not behind total cover. You know the type (aberration, fiend, monstrosity or undead) of any being whose presence you sense, but not its identity (the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich, for instance). Within the same radius, you also detect the presence of any place or object that has been consecrated or desecrated, as with the hallow spell. You can use this part of this feature a number of times equal to 1 + your Charisma modifier. When you finish a long rest, you regain all expended uses.

Starting at 14th level, you become more skilled at using this to see more than a normal person. You gain Truesight for 60 feet.

Spirits of the Past[edit]

Starting from 6th level, the shrine maiden can begin a ritual to see through the eyes of the spirits in the area to determine its history. After concentrating for at least 1 minute, you receive information concerning about the events of one hour of the past 24 hours that occurred in a space no larger than a 60 foot square centered on you. You regain usage of this feature after finishing a long rest.

Starting at 14th level, you can see 1 hour of events of unfold up to 1 year into the past. And then at 20th level, there is no limit to how far back you can go.

Spirit Ward[edit]

Starting at 10th level, you can hear the whispers of the spirits, and they help you to see through disguises and lies. When making a ability check to see through a disguise or trying to learn the true intentions of a creature, you can roll a d4 and add the number rolled to that ability check. You also gain proficiency in Insight and Perception.

Divine Guidance[edit]

Starting at 14th level, the spirits around you gives you additional assistance. All of your Cleric spells learned with Divine Bond become enchanted, and the DC to dispel or counter them increases by 2.

Looking at the spirits around a person, you can determine what kind of person they are. You can automatically determine what their creature type is, as well as whether their alignment is good, evil, or neutral.
