Stonelord (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The stones are the image of stability and constancy, remaining unchanged for years on end, enduring the changes in the environment, the fury of the elements. For this resilience, they are used to build walls, buildings and statues that will outlive its creators and many generations ahead. An they also keep secrets, only revealed to those who are willing to listen.
Some of those who seek the secrets contained in the stones are the Stonelords, warriors who can draw the magical power contained in the primordial stones, opening their awareness to the elements in order to comprehend them, and ultimately control them. Stonelords use the power of stone to increase their own resilience, to break and bend those around them and to build and reform the world around them, and to endure as the very stone they control.
