Aura Magister[edit]

A young lady kneels by a mound of fresh dirt and stone. A simple wooden cross stuck into a pile of rocks adorns one end of the mound, identifying it as a crudely dug grave. The young lady's hands are bruised and muddy. Weeping she begins to walk away. "Why?" She asks herself. "Why did the guards leave the town unguarded?"

"Auras...." Like a whisper, at the edge of hearing. The lady fell backwards,and frantically searched around but saw no one.

"Life and Death...." Again. She looked around, frantically searching for the source of the voice. "Do you wish... to know?" Confused but intrigued she nods. "For revenge on the guards?"

She paused for a moment then meekly says "No." She stands for a moment then meekly sits back down. "No... the guards will have to live with what they did for the rest of their lives... if these auras you speak of can control life and death perhaps I can protect my people. If that's the case I will take whatever powers you offer me" She's met with a long silence, and closes her eyes. Suddenly, a warmth envelopes half her body and the other half becomes deathly cold, just as it came she felt the warmth and coldness surge together in the middle of her body then disappear. After a moment, she opens her eyes and notices a soft yellow glow in one hand, and a dark purple glow from the other.

Just then a little girl cut and bloody runs screaming from the town bolting past her before collapsing asking for help. She feels a urge and her body suddenly feels very warm and begins to glow a soft yellow as she reaches over and touches the young girl. The young girl stands up completely healed of her wounds.

Suddenly a large hand grabs the young lady and the recently healed girl screams in terror. Almost immediately the soft yellow glow turns a dark purple and her body turns cold. The hand that grabbed her was that of a savage orc and the hand was now withered to the bone. She turns to look at the orc and is filled with rage causing her to extend her hands, shooting out an aura-like mist in the orc's direction, engulfing him. She watched as the life of the orc was replaced with death.

Now, she understands.

Spellcasting[edit]

At 1st level, you have gained the ability to use magic, and have learned how to bend it to your will.

Cantrips

At 1st level, you know 1 total cantrips of your choice from the wizard spell list, cleric spell list or the aura magister spell list at the bottom of this page. You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the aura magister table.

Spell Slots

The Aura Master Table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these aura magister 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 magic missile and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast magic missile using either slot.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

You know 2 1st-level spells of your choice from the wizard spell list, cleric spell list and the aura magister spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Aura Magister Table shows when you learn more aura magister spells of your choice from the wizard spell list, cleric spell list or the aura magister spell list. Each of these spells must be of a level where you have spell slots.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the aura magister spells you know and replace it with another spell from your available spell lists, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Spellcasting Ability

Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for your aura magister spells, since the power of your magic relies on your intellect. 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 aura magister 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 any melee martial weapon as a spellcasting focus for your aura magister spells.

Aura Control[edit]

Beginning at the 1st level, your relationship with the auras has allowed you to become stronger. Your unarmored AC becomes 10 + your Intelligence modifier + your Charisma modifier.

Switch Auras[edit]

Beginning at the 1st level, as an aura magister you have the ability to control the invisible auras that contain the ability to control life and death itself. Through many years of training you can swap between using the Aura of Life and the Aura of Death by expending a bonus action . While in the Aura of Life any effect you produce that heals has a bonus 1d4 applied to its effect. While in the Aura of Death any action you make that damages an opponent has a bonus 1d4 necrotic damage applied to its effect. These effects grow stronger as you gain levels, increasing the die type to 1d6 at 5th level, 1d8 at 9th level, 1d10 at 13th level, and 1d12 at 18th level

Fighting Style[edit]

At 2nd level, you adopt a style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can’t take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.

Defense

While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.

Dueling

When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.

Great Weapon Fighting

When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

Protection

When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.

Stored Aura of Life[edit]

At the 3rd level, when an action would cause you to drop below 5 hit points your auras of life reverses the effects it would have had on you causing you to take no damage that turn. Once used you cannot reuse this feature until you finish a long rest.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

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.

Aura Infusion[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, you learn how to temporary imbue your aura of death or life into your weapon. You can expend a spell slot to infuse the weapon you’re wielding with either aura. You can withdraw your Aura Infusion as a Bonus Action, otherwise, the effect lasts equal to one half your level rounded up in minutes or when another creature attempts to wield the infused weapon. The weapon also becomes magical if it isn't already, and any pre-existing magical quality it might have becomes replaced by one infusion from the following list:

Aura Infusions:
  • Life - White Flames erupt from your weapon. While it is ablaze, it deals an extra 1d6 radiant damage and 1d4 fire damage to any target on hit. Any flammable object hit by your attack(s), ignites if it isn't being worn or carried. This damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 14th level (2d6) and 18th level (3d6).
  • Death - Your weapon causes the smell of death within a 15-foot radius of you. All enemy's withing the radius become nauseous and make a Constitution saving throw DC equal to your spell save. On a failure all enemy's within range now roll with disadvantage when attacking you. When you hit with an attack, your target takes an extra 1d6 necrotic damage. This damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 14th level (2d6) and 18th level (3d6).

Everlasting Aura[edit]

At 7th level, once per week, you can bring a dead creature to life, as if casting revivify without material components. Additionally you are able to bring back creatures who have been dead for up to a month with extra hit-points equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1).

Returning Aura[edit]

At the 9th level, the healing spells you cast on others heal you as well. When you cast a spell that restores hit points to a creature other than you, the Aura of Life engulfs you regaining hit points equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1). Alternatively if you cast a spell in the Aura of Death you regain hit points equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1).

Enduring Aura[edit]

At the 11th level, your exposure to the auras of life and death themselves has halted your mortal clock. You no longer age naturally, making you essentially immortal to the ravages of time. Magical effects can still age you. Damage and death effects can still kill you per normal.

Deeper Understanding[edit]

At the 15th level, your Intelligence is permanently increased by 4 with a new potential maximum of 24.

Scales of Life and Death[edit]

At the 18th level, Upon reaching 0 hit points you roll for death saves as normal, however your spiritual aura has the will to fight on even if you are incapacitated. On a success you may cast any Aura of Life spell to heal a member of your party, but any healing received by your healing spells that would heal you is instead stored within you. On a failure you may cast any Aura of Death Spell you have. If you have (not on 3rd fail) managed to kill the last visible enemy by casting an Aura of Death spell, you are then healed to 1 hp and are no longer incapacitated. Upon making your final save or coming back through killing the last visible enemy any stored healing you have accumulated is now received healing your character.

Head Aura Magister[edit]

At 20th level, you have now mastered the auras of life and death. You leak out both auras within a 25 feet area around you. The auras appear like a thick mist to observers it however does not obscure your vision. (Mist can have other effects on DM's digression) When you speak the command word Kamer, the mist forms into a dome spanning 25 feet and 15 feet high centered on you for 1 minute. During this time, you heal yourself and any allies within the dome once per turn for 4d6+ your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1). Your mist can only heal allies up to 1/2 their maximum hit points. Anyone who attempts to attack you within the dome must make a Constitution saving throw to beat your spell save DC or take 2d12 + your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1) necrotic damage. Upon a success the attacker takes half the damage. You regain the use of this ability once you have finished a short or long rest.
