2016-06-10, 03:54 PM
Here is my work to make a a final fantasy style summoner in dnd 5e. Let me know what you think.

Proficiency in 2 skills from list, charisma and dex saves, sorcerer weapons. d6 hit die. Can use arcane focus.
Charisma based caster, selects spells from sorcerer list. Start with 2 spells known at level 2 and gain a new one at ever second level for a total of 11
Aeons use your stats and some some number of hp based on your summoner level and each get 1 spell 1/long rest in increasing level 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th,and 5th
Requires an action to command your Aeon to take an action. Directing your aeon to move is free though.
Each aeon gets one overlimit 1/long rest. Overlmit takes aeon to 0hp. Max Overlmit level follows max spell levels of full casters

1 Summon Aeon: You may summon an aeon as a manifistation of your power. You can summon an aeon as an unlimited number of times per day unless it is reduced to 0hp.
It can be summoned as a bonus action or an action, and dismissed as bonus action. The Aeon appears beside you and last until dismissed or reduced to 0hp. You start with Valefor at level 1. You gain more aeons as you increase in level. At level 5 you gain Ifrit. At level 10 you may choose either Ixion or Shiva. At level 14 either Bahumat or Anima and at level 17 you gain Origin. Aeons can not be healed with the exception of white magic abilities but regain all of their hp when you take a long rest.
1 Sorcerer cantrip: You learn one cantrip from the sorcerer spell list

Start with 2 spells known at level 2 and gain a new one at ever second level for a total of 11
2 - Summoning Order: You gain access to the summoning order abilities from your chosen order at levels 2, 6, 11, and 18
3 - The greater threat: Enemies will always see your aeon as the greater threat. Unless they suceed on a wisdom save, they cant attack you while you have an aeon present. This effect ends if you make an attack or cast a spell that effects an enemy creature.
3 - Overlimit: Each Aeon gains access to their overlimit, and may use it once at the max overlimit level indicated. Using overlimit reduces the aeon to 0hp. All aeons regain their overlmit when taking a long rest.
