Storm Reincarnation (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Creating a Storm Reincarnation
A child, watching her village invaded by orcs, cries out into the night sky as she watches her life collapse around her. Just when things couldn't get worse, it starts to storm. As a group of orcs surround her, a flash of lightning appears from the sky and touches down right in front of her, between her and the orcs. The figure who came from the lightning is small, but something about him radiates power. Before she could even process what happened, the orcs are dead, left in piles of ash and the mysterious figure is left crackling with electricity before he speeds away, fast as lightning. On a battlefield, a soldier kneels by his fallen comrades, surrounded by enemy troops. He looks up to the sky, a crackle of light flashes in his eyes, and he screams. Dozens of bolts of lightning hurl down from the clouds, striking friend and foe alike. Those who were just surrounding the soldier are now dead on the ground while his companions who laid dead seconds ago begin to wake up. A mysterious woman crouches on the roof of a palace in the middle of a city. The Lord had been exploiting his people, enslaving the men and keeping the women for his own entertainment. A petite woman walks in through the door. The guards put themselves in front of her so as to stop her but her fist crackles with energy and she punches them across the room. She draws two battleaxes and waits. Over the next six hours, she does not take a step nor get as much as a bruise as hundreds of guards stream into the room, only to be killed as quickly as they entered by a combination of brute force and lightning damage. A small groups of towns in the middle of the desert haven't seen rain for almost a year now. Crops are dying, people are starving, and the towns are falling apart. A dust storm strong enough to wipe out the towns entirely and the people are frantic. As the storm approaches, it starts to drizzle as a man slowly descends from the sky, seeming to be supported by a cloud. He stares at the dust storm and lifts his arms, a staff in one hand, a sword in the other. He glows bright with energy as wind picks up around him, rivaling the intensity of the incoming dust storm. The towns people, standing in the middle of the wind, only seem to feel a gentle breeze, yet the wind seems strong enough to rip a castle out of the ground. The man turns, winks, and drifts towards the dust storm. From inside his cyclone, another appears and the three storms stop the dust storm in its tracks.
