When implementing this content, DMs and Players should read over all the information carefully, and consider the following specific notes of interest:
This class may not work in all campaigns due to the futuristic elements present. It is also not meant to work with conventional campaigns 100% for that reason.

YoRHa Troop[edit]

In the desolate world, ravaged by war from millenia past, walks a figure that slays machines. A machine construct jumps out from hiding, only to be felled by a swift slash that halves it along the midriff. The sword returns to its floating position behind the figure's back, secured by fields of electromagnetic waves. The slayer kicks the head dispassionately. From higher ground comes the screech of another mad machine that leaps out. It is shot down by a floating Pod which accompanies the figure. There is only one phrase uttered of the duo's creed:

"Glory To Mankind."

Resistance in Dystopia[edit]

The YoRHa Troops are units specifically meant to combat machines and akin constructs. However, they will do their utmost to protect humankind and so will fight any threat. Each YoRHa Troop is given a Pod companion, which doubles as a mobile turret. Troop units can have special designated uses ranging from combat to reconnaissance and so forth.

Personal Pod[edit]

No YoRHa Troop is truly alone when they have their trusty Pod companion unit! You start off your adventure with a Pod accompanying you. All Pods follow the appearance of a floating rectangular prism equipped with a blaster and small probing claws. It obeys your every command. Your Pod is in a state of constant hovering, always at least 5 feet off the ground. It cannot leave your side and must remain within 10 feet of you. When broken, it can be repaired with an 8 hour rebooting and repair session. Your Pod is capable of communicating in Common and shares your alignment.

As long as your Pod is active, any weapon you throw can be returned to your hand with a bonus action, upon hit or miss.

In battle, it rolls its own initiative and acts on its own turn. And as you gain levels in this class, your Pod attack grows in power. Your Pod has a ranged attack, allowing it to shoot bullets of energy up to 90 feet in range. It deals 1d6 Lightning damage, gaining one extra damage die every three levels.

Starting 7th level, your Pod gains the ability to assist you medically. By having your Pod expend an action, you receive a healing transmission from it, regaining XD4 hit points, where X is your Constitution modifier. After using this feature, you must complete a long rest before you may use it again.

A150:Vault[edit]

When you reach 2nd level, your jump distance is tripled. You automatically succeed checks to land on your feet and take no fall damage unless you are incapacitated, paralyzed, petrified, stunned, or unconscious. You also gain proficiency in Athletics and Acrobatics checks. If you already have proficiency in either of those skills, you may double your proficiency.

YoRHa Troop Specialization Feature[edit]

At level 3, your troop unit can choose a specialization, or role, in the troop dynamic. Choose from the Attacker, Brawler, Canceller, Defender, Executioner, Gunner, Healer, Machinist, Operator and Scanner Models.

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.

P040:Maneuver[edit]

Pods can be fragile things, which is why you're partners. They do decent chiseling and you can block the hits. When you reach 5th level, if your Pod should be attacked, you can expend a reaction and reduce your hit points by the value your Pod would have taken instead. If the attack is an Area of Effect attack, then you reduce your hit points in addition to whatever damage may be dealt to you separately. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Strength modifier, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, when you take the attack option, you may attack twice

Dash and Evade[edit]

Starting at 7th level, you may expend your bonus action to disengage and dash in addition.

When you reach 10th level, you can expend an action to gain 4d10 temporary hit points. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Constitution modifier, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Offensive Heal[edit]

Attacking foes at a melee range can allow you to siphon some energy. Starting at 11th level, as an action, you can make a melee weapon attack against a living creature, dealing force damage equal to 1d20 + your Strength modifier on a hit. You regain hit points equal to the amount of damage dealt. If this feature kills the creature, you double the hit points gained from using this feature. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Strength modifier, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Unyielding[edit]

When you reach 14th level, if you drop down to 0 hit points, you can instead choose to drop down to 1 hit point. You may use this feature once, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Counter[edit]

What's a good soldier without counter tactics? Starting at 15th level, when you are hit by an attack, you may use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against that creature.

R010:Laser[edit]

When you reach 17th level, you can expend one action to command your Pod to do the following: It will expend its action to shoot a concentrated beam in a 60 feet long line, five feet wide, in a direction you choose. The creatures within the area of effect must attempt a Dexterity saving throw against DC 10 + your Strength modifier. This beam deals 6d6 lightning damage on failure and half the damage die on success. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Strength modifier, regaining all uses when you finish a long rest.

Self Destruct[edit]

It's more noble to take down your enemies with you than retreat. That's the purpose of this suicide tactic. When you reach 20th level, you may use an action to reduce your hit points to zero and create a small, concentrated explosion with your Pod. All creatures within 10 feet of you take 12d10 force damage.
