At 1st level, when hit by a weapon attack, you may choose to use your reaction to parry the attack instead, reducing the damage by your weapon damage + your Dexterity modifier. This decision must be made before the DM determines the damage of the attack. Parrying an attack from a creature larger than you is done at one disadvantage per size category, and vise-versa for creatures smaller than yourself. You may use this feature a number of times equal to 1+ your Dexterity modifier, regaining spent uses during any short or long rest.
The Untouchable Blade has spent an uncountable amount of hours practicing the art of parrying an attack, to the point that an Untouchable Blade character arrogantly boast that they cannot be harmed by any normal means of attack. This arrogance has been the cause of many Untouchable Blades' deaths. Starting at 1st level, you take an extra 2 damage from any damage you receive.
Starting at 1st level, when you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, or shields, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.
Beginning at 1st level, you can make an attack to counter the one whom you parried completely. You may use this ability a number of times equal to 1+ your dexterity modifier. These uses refresh with a short or long rest.
At 1st level, the Untouchable Blade is not able to use the following class features: Parry, Riposte, or any "Defense" feature, while wearing medium or heavy armor, while wielding a shield or encumbered.
You are able to see through any feint attack, and are able to perceive where your opponent is going to attack from next. At 2nd level, while wearing light or no armor you add your Intelligence modifier to your Armor Class. Also, you may substitute your Intelligence modifier for your Dexterity modifier for any Dexterity skill checks and vise-versa for Intelligence skill checks.
Untouchable Blade Technique
At 3rd level, you gain the attention of the Untouchable Blade Society, allowing you to choose to be taught in one the three Untouchable Blade techniques. Choose the school of The Unbreakable Blade, The Piercing Spire, or The Flashing Steel, all are detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd, 6th, 11th, and 17th levels.
Ability Score Increase
When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of you 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.
Starting at 5th level, 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. The Arrogance feature is added in after Uncanny Dodge takes place.
Beginning at level 7, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.At thirteenth Level you can attack three times. And at level 17 you can attack Four times.
Starting at 9th level, you can use your reaction to deflect the missile when you are hit by a ranged weapon attack. When you do so the damage you take from the attack is reduced by 1d10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Untouchable Blade level. The projectile is destroyed in the process
At 10th level, you now add your Intelligence modifier to melee weapon attack and damage rolls. The weapon must be a one-handed slashing/piercing weapon.
Upon reaching 13th level, when you Parry an attack the creature attacking it must make a successful Wisdom saving throw against your Intimidation skill + half your Untouchable Blade level (rounded down). Upon a failed saving throw the creature becomes Frightened, causing it to disengage in combat with you. A frightened creature has disadvantage on ability checks and attack rolls while you are within line of sight. The creature can't willingly move closer to you.
Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or invisible creature within 10 feet of you.
Because of your countless hours in training your body to near perfection you have deep reserves of stamina. Starting at 15th level, as a bonus action you can draw on your untapped stamina. When doing so you are able to use your full round of actions again. Tapping into you stamina reserves is extremely draining, you are able to perform this action once per day.
Upon reaching 18th level, you are now able to use the Deflect Missiles feature a number of times equal to your Dexterity modifier per round. Additionally, instead of rolling a 1d10, you now roll 2d8 to determine the damage reduction.
Beginning at 20th level, anytime that you use the Reposte feature, as a bonus action, you can make up to three additional melee attacks against any target within range, each attack is made separately and no target may be attacked twice with this feature.
Receiving the opportunity to learn one of the fabled fighting styles of the Untouchable Blade is rare. One must train tirelessly for years to even hope to gain the attention of one of the three schools. If that attention is gained though, the offer is extended to learn amongst history's greatest duelists.
The Unbreakable Blade
