Torrid Scion

Torrid scions carry the legacy and heritage of the greatest warriors in their history, from whom all future generations of believe themselves descended. They believe these legendary ancestors were warriors without equal and so often take on a local name as a part of the social hierarchy of their people. In some cases, so many have called themselves after these legends that the word has drifted beyond their original clans to include warriors of other races as well.

They are adept at fighting in all parts of the land, especially in the torrid zones, from their waters to the jungle.

Natural Acumen

When you reach 3rd level, you gain proficiency in Nature and Survival ability checks.

Swimming Warrior

Starting at 3rd level, you gain a swimming speed of 15 feet. If you already have a swimming speed, it is instead increased by +10 feet.

Jungle Fighter

At 7th level, you are able to fight in the jungle without ever being hampered by your surroundings. You ignore the negative effects of cover and difficult terrain while in the jungle.

Nature’s Protection

At 10th level, as a reaction whenever you would be attacked while adjacent to a tree or natural body of water, you can cause either the bark or water to reach out and protect you.

The attack against you has disadvantage.

Verdant Attacks

At 15th level, whenever you would damage a creature with a melee or ranged weapon attack, you deal an extra 1d4 points of poison damage.

Ancestral Might

At 18th level, as a bonus action you become fused with the spirits of your ancestors, granting you certain protections in battle. You gain resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage as well as becoming immune to poison damage. This ability lasts for 1 minute. So long as this ability is active, it can be ended early as a reaction in order to become immune to one instance of damage. Once you have used this ability, you must complete a short or long rest before doing so again.
