Daily Punch 5-4-21 Traveling Scholar rogue archetype for DnD 5e

More fun for the people in the library!

Traveling Scholar

All knowledge is good knowledge, and you find it where you can. As you go around you learn from the things you do, the things you see, and the things you kill. You write everything down and those note teach you things that will keep you alive! What ever doesn’t kill you and whatever you see can only make you stronger!

Detailed Notes

When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you start to write down all the things you see and do. When you make a sneak attack against a creature type, write that down. Every time after you make a non-sneak attack against that target, you gain a bonus to damage against that target equal to the number of times you have previous made a successful sneak attack against that creature type, up to your proficiency modifier. For humanoids, you must make sneak attacks against each different humanoid subtype.

Learn from your Friends

Starting at 3rd level, you start to write down what your friends do to learn from them. Every time an ally succeeds at a Intelligence (Arcana), Wisdom (Religion), or Intelligence (Nature) check, note that they succeeded. When you attempt a Intelligence (Arcana), Wisdom (Religion), or Intelligence (Nature) check, gain a bonus to that check equal to the number of times you have previously observed a successful check, up to half your proficiency modifier.

Useful Observation

Starting at 9th level, you start to apply what you see quickly. Once per day, when you are the subject of an effect or spell from a creature that requires a save and you succeed, you can choose to learn that effect or spell. Before you take a long rest, you can use that spell or effect once. You regain this ability after a long rest.

Success Breed Knowledge

Starting at 13th level, you begin to learn from all the attempts on your life. Every time you succeeds at a save, note your success for that agility score. When you attempt a save in the future for the specific ability score, gain a bonus to that save equal to the number of times you have previously succeeded on that save, up to half your proficiency modifier

Knowledge Pool

When you reach 17th level, you can use your useful observation ability up to three times each time choosing different spells or effects.

Daily Punch 5-3-21 Path of the Savant Barbarian Primal Path for DnD 5e

Knowledge is dangerous! Especially when don’t know what you are doing!

Path of the Savant

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. You’ve learned… enough. The wizard taught you a some things and some things took. Not much, but some. You got you a book, you got you some learning, and know you gonna hit people with both!

Rage Casting

Starting when you choose this path at 3rd level, you get a spellbook with two wizard cantrips. When you start to rage, you can stare at the book for a bit, cram a spell in your brain and you go hog wild. As a bonus action while raging, you can cast that cantrip. The DC for any save is based on your Constitution and spell attacks are made using your Constitution modifier. When your rage ends, you suffer one level of exhaustion as your head hurts. You can copy new spells into your spellbook as a wizard normally does.

Magic Learning

Beginning at 6th level, you gain proficiency in Arcana and History. You also gain detect magic into your spellbook and can cast that spell as normal without being in a rage.

Mindless Magic

Beginning at 10th level, while raging you gain advantage on saving throws against magic spells and effects as your heightened understanding of magic in your rage state lets you see the flow of magic.

Magic Mastery

Starting at 14th level, you gain the ability to cast 1st level wizard spells and can copy two into your spellbook when you get this ability. When you rage you can choose to learn a 1st level spell instead of a cantrip. If you do, you can cast that spell as a bonus action, but you gain two levels of exhaustion when the rage ends instead of one.

Daily Punch 4-30-21 Cold Tolerance ancestry feat for Pathfinder 2nd Ed.

The only feats I’ve seen for ancestries have to do one race. Why not regional ancestries? People from a cold place should be able to survive the cold regardless if they are human, dwarf, or orc. Let’s start.


Cold Tolerance Feat 5

regional ancestry


Prerequisites raised in cold location

You grew up in a land of ice and snow, and it hardened you against the cold. You gain resistance 5 to cold damage.

Daily Punch 4-29-21 Student of Ōya no Tarō Mitsukuni Monastic Traditions for Monk in Dungeons and Dragons 5e

How about an idea for a monk? Always fun to learn new folklore!

Monk-Student of Ōya no Tarō Mitsukuni 

Monks that follow Ōya no Tarō Mitsukuni follow this samurai due to his battle prowess and ability to overcome the impossible.  Having heard tales of this man kill the unkillable giant skeletons sent against him by a practitioner of black magic, you now learn at the feat of the master as he reveals his secrets to you.  He is a warrior first and an honorable competent second, but you find it hard to belittle the man for his results.  You now learn to combine his techniques with your monastic training to survive the unsurvivable.

Path of the Sword

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level, you learn how to use a longsword/katana.  This weapon counts as a monk weapon for your flurry of blows.  When you increase your unarmed damage, increase your longsword damage as well.

Learning From Your Foe

At 6th level you learn how the masters sneak into the enemy’s home and even their very bed to learn the secrets of its attack.  You gain proficiency in Deception and Stealth skills.  If you are already proficient in either of these skills, gain a +2 bonus to that skill instead.

Mastery of Onmyōdō

Beginning at 11th level,  the master reveals the magics of life and death to you and how to survive the magic assaults on your life.   When you are attacked by a magic attack or effect, you can spend a ki point to gain advantage on the saving throw.

Against the Impossible

At 17th level you no longer need the master to teach you how to do what must be done, you have learned to master the impossible.  When you would be reduced to zero hit points, you can spend 3 or all your remaining ki points (whichever is less) to avoid the attack and gain hit points up to your maximum.  You can only do this once and then you must complete a long rest before you can use this feature again.
