- Spell Slots
The Solstice 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. For example, if you know the 1st-level spell Burning Hands and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast Burning Hands using either slot. Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher You know two 1st-level Spells of your choice from the Aforementioned spell lists. You learn an additional Spells of your choice at each level except 12th, 14th, 16th, 18th, 19th, and 20th. Each of these Spells must be of a level for which you have Spell Slots. For instance, when you reach 3rd level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level. Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Spells you know and replace it with another spell from the Solstice spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have Spell Slots.
- Spellcasting Ability
Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your Spells, as your magic requires you to know the intricate equations that augment your innate magic. 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 Phoenixmancer 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 an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your Solstice Spells.
As a Solstice you have the ability to switch between three forms, your radiant form, your necrotic form, and your true form. At 1st level you can switch between these forms at will. The form you are in will augment or completely change you class features.
- Augmented Spellcasting
At 1st level spell operate differently when cast by you. When in your true form spells do half radiant damage and half necrotic damage, in your radiant form all of your spells do radiant damage, and in your necrotic form your spells do necrotic damage. I.E, if fireball is cast in your true form, it deals 4d6 radiant damage, and 4d6 necrotic.
Even though your abilities have just surfaced and are quite weak, they still are there, at 2nd level you gain resistance to necrotic and radiant damage.
At 3rd level you choose which form that you specialize in, the available forms are the Summer Solstice, Winter Solstice, and the Equinox. The subclasses are detailed at the end of the page.
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 can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.
