    Default [5e] Nifft's Dragonfire Adept [PEACH]

    Nifft's Dragonfire Adept

    Spoiler
    Show




    Golden eyes flashing, a human opens her mouth and unleashes the dragonfire that burns in her veins. As an inferno rages around her foes, leathery wings spread from her back and she takes to the air.

    Dragonfire Adepts are linked to ancient pacts which intertwine the history of dragons, the elemental planes, and the primal magic of the world. Some sought this path; some were compelled to partake of the ancient pacts by the mere knowledge of the secrets they uncovered; yet others were compelled by circumstances beyond their control; and some few obtained their pact binding by a hereditary blessing or curse.

    Whether you come as a courier, a councilor, or a conqueror, none can ignore you when you speak with a tongue of fire.


    Class Features
    As a Dragonfire Adept, you gain the following class features.

    Hit Points
    Hit Dice: 1d8 per adept level
    Hit Points at 1st Level: 8 + your Constitution modifier
    Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per binder level after 1st

    Proficiencies
    Armor: Light armor
    Weapons: Simple weapons
    Tools: Choose one type of gaming set or one musical instrument
    Languages: You can read, write, and speak Draconic

    Saving Throws: Constitution and Charisma
    Skills: Choose any three from Arcana, Deception, History, Intimidation, Insight, Investigation, Performance, Persuasion, and Religion

    Equipment
    You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your background:
    * (a) a light crossbow and 20 bolts or (b) any simple weapon
    * (a) a component pouch or (b) an arcane focus
    * (a) a scholar's pack or (b) a diplomat's pack
    * Leather armor, any simple weapon, and two daggers


    Breath Weapon
    Starting at 1st level, you can exhale a line of scorching flame 30 feet long and 5 feet wide which deals 3d8 Fire damage. Each creature in the line must make a Dexterity saving throw; on success, the creature takes half damage.

    Once you use your breath weapon, it is expended, and can't be used again until it recharges. If you start your turn with your breath weapon expended, roll 1d6 before taking any actions. On a result of 5 or 6, your breath weapon recharges, and can be used again any time after. Some Invocations may give you special options on the turn when your breath weapon recharges.

    At 2nd level, you learn a Breath Effect, which gives you more options with your breath weapon. All of your breath weapons become unavailable while any one of them is expended; all of them become available again when your breath weapon recharges. You learn a new Breath Effect at levels 5, 8, 11, 14, and 17.

    At 4th level, your breath weapon deals 4d8 damage. At 7th level, the damage increases to 5d8. At 10th level, the damage increases to 6d8. At 13th level, the damage increases to 7d8. At 16th level, the damage increases to 8d8. At 19th level, the damage increases to 10d8.

    At 5th level, you may use your breath weapon to breathe a 15 foot cone of fire or a 30 foot line of fire. Some of your other breath effects, such as Frost Breath, can also be used as either a cone or a line. Some breath effects can only be used as either a cone or a line, such as Lightning Breath (line only) or Slow Gas (cone only).

    At 10th level, your breath weapons can be used as 60 foot lines (5 feet wide) or 30 foot cones.

    At 18th level, your breath weapons can be used as 120 foot lines (10 feet wide) or 60 foot cones.

    You use your Constitution modifier when setting the saving throw DC for your dragonfire adept breath weapon effects.

    Breath save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Constitution modifier

    Attune Allies
    At the end of a long rest or a short rest you can attune any number of allies you can see. This attunement makes the ally immune to your breath weapon damage and effects until you revoke the attunement as an action, or until 24 hours have passed.

    Dragon Magic
    Your breath weapons are magical, but they are not spells. You can use your breath weapons in areas of magical Silence, for example, unless otherwise noted. Creatures that get a bonus to saving throws against spells can't apply that bonus to your breath weapon, but creatures that get a bonus against magic in general can.


    Pact Magic
    At first level, you learn two spells from the following list:
    - Absorb Elements
    - Chromatic Orb
    - Command
    - Earth Tremor
    - False Life
    - Healing Word

    You do not learn any other spells from this class, except as indicated by your Aspiration features, Paragon features, and your Draconic Invocations.

    Spell Slots
    The Dragonfire Adept table shows how many spell slots you have. The table also shows what the level of those slots is; all of your spell slots are the same level. To cast one of your warlock spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a spell slot. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a short or long rest.

    For example, when you are 5th level, you have two 3rd-level spell slots. To cast the 1st-level spell thunderwave, you must spend one of those slots, and you cast it as a 3rd-level spell.

    Spellcasting Ability
    Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your dragonfire adept spells. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability.

    In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a dragonfire adept spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

    Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier
    Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

    Spellcasting Focus
    You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your dragonfire adept spells.

    Draconic Invocations
    In your study of primal draconic power and pacts, you have unearthed arcane invocations, fragments of lost knowledge that imbue you with an abiding magical ability.

    At 2nd level, you gain two draconic invocations of your choice. Your invocation options are detailed at the end of the class description. When you gain certain dragonfire adept levels, you gain additional invocations of your choice, as shown in the Invocations Known column of the Dragonfire Adept table.

    Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the invocations you know and replace it with another invocation that you could learn at that level.


    Draconic Aspiration

    Hidecarved Dracolyte - You have emblazoned runes of arcane might onto your scaly hide.

    Shadow Delver You infuse yourself with the unusual elemental essence of shadow dragons.
    Unholy Ravager of Tiamat - You have pledged your service to the diabolical queen of chromatic dragons.


    Dragon Wings
    At 14th level, you gain the ability to sprout a pair of dragon wings from your back, gaining a flying speed equal to your current speed. You can create these wings as a bonus action on your turn. They last until you dismiss them as a bonus action on your turn.

    You can't manifest your wings while wearing armor unless the armor is made to accommodate them, and clothing not made to accommodate your wings might be destroyed when you manifest them.


    Legendary Apotheosis
    You have unlocked some powers of legendary dragons.

    Legendary Reserves: If you have zero spell slots when you roll initiative, you immediately recover one spell slot.

    THAT PICTURE! Mm. That picture. Perfect.

    I see you decided to make them skill monekyish as well, with three skills.

    3d8 is a little high for something usable every three turns. Compared to my 1d6, it's one point of damage higher on average, but because of its power, it's liable to make encounters shorter, increasing its effective DPR.

    Attune Allies should be limited. I stuck a limit on mine to make it so it doesn't become a raw force multiplier.

    ...

    YOU MADE THIS A FULL CASTER! STOP RIGHT THERE!

    Okay. I'm going to look it over. But this is a FULL CASTER CLASS. WITH A BREATH WEAPON THAT PUTS THE DRAGONBORN'S TO SHAME.

    Legendary Apotheosis is too strong. That lets you toss a spell and a breath attack every single encounter.

    Disciple of the Claw is almost Monk strong, early on. Less attacks, but higher damage die.

    BLANKET ADVANTAGE ON INSIGHT AND PERCEPTION! No. Bad. Overpowered.

    Unlimited Frightening at level 6. Also overpowered.

    Blindisght 30' at level 9 when Rogues have to wait much longer for much less? Overpowered, again.

    Dragon Samurai is fine.

    Faerie is fine.

    Loredrake is too much. A bonus spell slot is HUGE on a Warlock style caster.

    Dracolexei is pretty powerful, but maybe okay?

    Elemental Master is way too much extra short rest power.

    Adamant Body has to specify how long they last (not that it matters, because they can get replenished every 3 rounds).

    Adamant Mind is too much.

    Sacred Warder is okay, except for Animal Forms. Much too powerful.

    I'm honestly stopping right here. This class is blatantly overpowered. It's a full caster with WAY TOO MUCH else going for it.

    Ah, dang.

    I was afraid of that.

    Guess I'll have to re-work a bunch of stuff.

    Thanks.

    Post again when it's reworked. You've done good work in the past-you just goofed a little this time.

    Sorry for the necromancy, but I have to ask: What are the Pact Tradition Features granted at levels 10, 14, and 18? Nothing, I assume? An abandoned design quirk? I think this is a solid class that could use a few tweaks, but I have a player about to join a game with one of these and I was just curious. Get back to work on this Nifft!

    Looks like I was going to do something there, but I did something different instead -- like at 10th level you get a bigger area breath weapon, not a "Pact Tradition" anything.

    Thanks for the catch!
