A Prestige Class for D&D 5e: Spellfire Wielder

D&D 5e lacks prestige classes.


More than two years ago an Unearthed Arcana presented a Prestige Class: The Rune Scribe.


According to the rough guidelines in the UA, I've attempted to create the Spellfire Wielder prestige class, based on the class presented in older editions such as 2nd and 3.5.


Spellfire Wielders are from the Forgotten Realms but you can easily adapt to any other setting.




PRESTIGE CLASS: SPELLFIRE WIELDER


Spellfire is a rare magical power highly coveted by many in Faerûn, as it allowed the user to absorb spells cast at them, internally convert it to raw magical energy, and then use it in myriad ways. Spellfire energies can be used to heal, to project destructive bursts of flame, for flight, and many other things

PREREQUISITES


 
In order to advance as a Spellfire Wielder, you must meet the following prerequisites:


  • Charisma 14. Spellfire wielders need a powerful attunement with the raw power of magic
  • Constitution 12. Spellfire wielders need a strong physical body to contain inside themselves the raw power of magic
  • DM's Permission. Spellfire wielders are very rare and have origin in the Forgotten Realms , and they might not to be suitable to your DM's campaign.
     
    HIT POINTS
    Hit Dice: 1d6 per spell wielder level
    Hit Points per level: 1d6 (4) + your constitution modifier per spell wielder level
     
    Magic Absorption

    You absorb the magical energy of a spell that is targeting you and not with an area of effect. The spell's energy is stored into your body. The energy has the same level as the spell when it was cast You can store levels up to your Constitution score. Each time you absorb more energy you must make a Constitution DC 13 saving throw. On a failed score, you absorb the energy but you immediately release it. Each creature, including you, or object not worn or wielded in a 10 ft radius suffers 1d6 fire and 1d6 radiant per level released. You can store levels up to to the double of your Constitution score at 3th level.
     
    Spellfire Blast
     
    As an action, you can expend your energy levels stored to make a melee or a ranged (maximum range 120 ft) spell attack to a creature or an object. Charisma is your spellcasting ability and you add your proficiency bonus. On a successful hit, the target suffers 1d6 fire damage and 1d6 radiant damage per energy level released.
     
    Drain Magic Items
     
    As an action you can drain one charge from a touched magic item (including scrolls or potions), converting the energy into a single stored energy level. A fully drained item has no magical properties. At 4th level you can drain power from touched permanent magic item. The item loses its magical functions for 24 hour. You store energy levels according to the rarity of the item:


Rarity
Energy levels

1 energy levels

10 energy levels


If the item is held or carried by a creature you must win a Dexterity contest with that creature.


 


Magical Healing


As an action you can expend your energy levels stored to heal a creature that you can see within 30 feet from you and with less hp than its hp maximum. You heal 2d6 hp per energy level used.


 


Flight


As an action you can expend your energy levels stored to gain flying 40 ft movement. The effect lasts 1 minute per energy level used.


 


Double blast


When you use your Spellfire Blast feature you can target 2 different creatures.


 


Crown of Fire


As an action, you can expend 10 energy levels to manifest for 1 minute a halo of fire around your head. The crown has the same effects of the daylight spell. You gain immunity from fire and radiant damage and resistance to any other damage type. All nonmagical weapons that strike you are melt after causing damage.


Bye.
