Circle of Balance

Druids in the Circle of Balance are tasked with maintaining harmony in nature. They meet with isolated hamlets to teach methods of conservation, sustainable farming, and sanitary waste disposal. In situations of conflict, they attempt to find the middle ground, hoping to avoid the limitations that extremes of purely ordered or purely chaotic viewpoints impose.

Karmic Balance

When you choose this circle at 2nd level, you add the spells bane and bless to the druid spell list.

Unwavering And Unsullied

Starting at 2nd level, you gain advantage on Dexterity (Acrobatics) skill checks made to balance and on Fortitude saving throws against disease.

Circle Spells

Your mystical connection to balance infuses you with the ability to cast certain spells. At 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th level you gain access to circle spells that help maintain equilibrium in your magical repertoire. Once you gain access to a circle spell, you always have it prepared, and it doesn’t count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn’t appear on the druid spell list, the spell is nevertheless a druid spell for you.

Balancing the Scales

Starting at 6th level, you can use your reaction to turn a roll (yours or another creature’s) of a natural 1 or a natural 20 into a 10.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to 1 + your Wisdom modifier. You regain any expanded uses when you finish a long rest.

Checks and Balances

When you reach 10th level, as an action, you can designate one creature you can see as your counterpart for 1 minute. Once on each of your turns for the duration, after you make an attack roll against your counterpart, roll a d6 and add the result of the roll as a circumstance bonus to your attack.

The very next attack your counterpart makes suffers a circumstance penalty equal to the circumstance bonus you gained. You can’t use this feature again until you finish a short or long rest.

Redistribution of Resources

By 14th level, you can choose to lower one of your ability scores by 2 points and raise another ability score by 2 points. This alteration reverts back to its original configuration after a long rest.

You can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest.
