Aeromancer

Depiction of a nereid aeromancer binding a whirlwind of air The aeromancer is a mysterious elementalist. They bind their ki to the wind itself, controlling the air around them comes as naturally as breathing is to other creatures. They can be energetic and emotive, or calm and gentle

Some aeromancers prefer nomadic lifestyles, while others settle in monasteries in remote mountain locations. Adventuring aeromancers are often restless and spirited, travelling to the corners of the world as if driven by the wind itself. As galactic travellers, aeromancers are valued for their natural aptitude as sailors. They can directly control sails and easily navigate their way around a ship. Many aeromancers will trade these skills for passage as they make their way through the galactic stream

Aeromancers excel at avoiding and evading strikes, in lieu of dealing out damage. They have very high mobility, and good utility. They prize a sharp mind and quick body

Talent details

At level one, you may choose from the following talents:
Air Blast, High Jump, Slow Fall, Powerful Ki, Cloud of Dust, and Breath

At level two, you may choose any talent for which you meet the requirements. (Talent Key)


Air blast

Requires: No requirements
Description: Blast an opponent or target hex with air, or use your blast to defend against incoming attacks. The path of the blast may arc up to 30 degrees
Range: 30 feet

Effect: Target creature, hex, or object
Offensive: Attack Bonus + Dex + 2d6
Defensive: Defense Bonus + Dex + 2d6
Damage: Strength x 2 + 1d6 [Bludgeoning]
Cooldown: 6 rounds
Special:

  • Attacking with a standard action grants one attack which does not invoke the cooldown. Attacking with a full action grants two attacks which must be initiated in separate segments. Using Air Blast as a full action invokes the cooldown which only prohibits using it as a full action
  • Upon a successful hit, your target is pushed back 5 feet. If this movement pushes them into an object, the pushback is halted in that space, and the creature takes no damage from being pushed into the object. Pushback still applies when using Air Blast to perform a maneuver

Talent Point Improvements:
□ Extend the range by 10 feet. Maximum range is 120 feet
□ Increase the speed by 2H
□□ Increase the dice bonus of the offensive and defensive formulas by 1d6. (Cost increases)

Action: Standard
Requires: Powerful Ki
Description: Blast an opponent or target hex with air. Your ki binding is strong and precise, allowing your blast to be razor thin, slicing through your target. The path of the blast is a 30 degree arc that moves outward from you, or from one side to the other, at your option
Range: 15 feet
Speed: 8H
Effect: Target 30° cone
Offensive: Attack Bonus + Dex + 2d6
Defensive: Defense Bonus + Dex + 2d6
