Support Skills[edit]

At 1st level, you are capable of performing certain skills to benefit your allies or hinder you enemies. Starting out, you know the two support skills listed below. When you gain certain Supporter levels, you gain additional support skil, as shown in the Support Skills Known column of the Supporter class. You can choose any of the support skills listed at the end of the class, provided you meet the prerequisite. Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the support skills you know and replace it with another support skill you couldn’t learn before.
Skill Points: You have a number of Skill points, listed on the Supporter table. You regain all used skill points after a long rest, or an amount equal to half your Supporter level (rounded down) after a short rest. Skill points are used for your support skills.
Support Skills Ability: Intelligence is your support skill ability for your support skills, since you have to be smart with who to support.

Support skill save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Support skill attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Intelligence modifier

Minor Defense

Time Used: 1 action
Range: touch
Cost: 1 skill point
Duration: 1 minute
The target gains residence to either Bludgeoning, Piercing, or Slashing for the duration.

Minor Heal

Time Used: 1 action
Range: touch
Cost: 1 skill point

Self Improvement[edit]

At level 1, choose one of the following.

As long as you have Smiths tools present, you can create adventuring gear and weapons during downtime, provided you have the basic materials (you can improvise, ie. a dagger could be made out of monsters tooth), and you spend 1 hour working on it for every gp it costs.
