Fervor[edit]

At 1st level, the Warpriest, instead of magic, learns a unique way to manipulate radiant energy focusing either negative or positive elements to it. The Warpriest shapes that energy into a bolt and throws it to a target within 30 feet; If the bolt has positive energy the target is healed; if the bolt has negative energy make a ranged spell attack against the target, on a hit the target takes radiant damage. The hit die for this ability is located in the Warpriest Table. You can use this ability as many times as your Wisdom modifier plus 1 by every 4 levels in this class (rounded down starting in 1). You regain all charges after a long rest and 1 charge after a short rest.

Undead and demons take an additional 1d6 of damage.

If your God is evil change the radiant damage for necrotic damage in every skill, and now instead to deal extra damage to Devils, Demons and Undeads it does to Celestials and Fey.

If your God is neutral change the radiant damage for force damage in every class skill.

Sacred Pulse[edit]

At 10th level, you learn to release a wave of radiant energy in a 30 feet radius from the Warpriest. The Warpriest must choose if the energy is positive (every creature within radius is healed) or negative (every creature within radius takes radiant damage). Creatures targeted by this ability may do a Con saving throw against the Warpriest spell save DC and take half damage on a successful roll. This ability uses the same hit die as fervor from the Warpriest Table. you can use this ability 2 times a day and you regain this uses after a long rest. At 15th level, you can use this ability 3 times a day.

Sacred Return[edit]

At 20th level, the Warpriest learns to store a great amount of positive radiant energy within him. As long as this energy is within you, whenever your hit points reach 0 or lower you spend this ability to automatically resurrect with full hp, make one use of Sacred Pulse and you are considered a Celestial for 5 turns. When this skill ends you fall to the ground with 1 hp and gain one level of exhaustion. If you are reduced to 0 hp in this form you fail 1 death saving throw.

If you are a Tactician Warpriest you regain all of your Fervor and the half of your Sacred Reactions uses and at the end of this skill you drop to half of your current hp instead of zero.

If you are a Power Warpriest you regain the half of your Fervor uses and gain a harmful aura that make you ignore the resistance and immunities of the targets affected by your Fervor and Sacred Pulse.
