Special Traits

  • Innate Spellcasting (Psionics). The mystic’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15). The mystic can innately cast the following spells, requiring no components:
  • Inscrutable. The mystic is immune to any effect that would sense its emotions or read its thoughts, as well any divination spell that it refuses. Wisdom (Insight) checks made to ascertain the mystic’s intentions or sincerity have disadvantage.
  • Mental Fortitude. The mystic has advantage on saving throws against being charmed or frightened, and magic can’t put the mystic to sleep.
  • Mind Armor. The mystic has mind armor and can add its Constitution and Wisdom modifiers to its AC.
  • Mind Power. The mystic uses its Wisdom modifier for psychic attacks.
  • Psychic Engine. When the mystic suffers a critical hit or is reduced to 0 hit points, psychic energy erupts from its frame to deal 10 (3d6) psychic damage to each creature within 10 feet of it.


  • Multiattack. The mystic makes two attacks.
  • Mindblade. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) psychic damage.
  • Thought Bolts. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 30/80 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) psychic damage.


Mystics are deeply connected to the multiverse. Many folks believe these humanoids have mastered their minds. This is incorrect, they have actually surrendered to their souls. They do have a new relationship to their minds however, simply observing their thoughts.

Interior Life. Mystics aren’t consumed by their thoughts and emotions. They stay in the moment and take whatever action they feel is required. Mystics understand that thoughts and emotions are merely passing through their consciousness.

Psionic Master. Their psionic powers include the ability to create a psychic sword with their mind. They can also send out forceful bolts of thought to target their enemies. In addition, their minds form a psionic shield around them called mind armor.

Patient Perfection. The mystic learns that their personal journey could last a long time, possibly beyond mortal constructs. They trust in something greater than themselves and continue steadily on their path.
