Special Traits


  • Commanding Warhammer. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) bludgeoning damage, plus 9 (2d8) necrotic damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw, or be charmed by the adept for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
  • Restore Undeath. The adept touches a willing undead creature, within 5 feet of it, and expends a spell slot to channel negative energy. The target regains 8 (1d8 + 4) hit points, plus an additional 4 (1d8) hit points for each slot level above 1st of the expended spell slot.
  • Bane of Life (2/Day). The adept presents its holy symbol and speaks a baleful command chastising the living. Each creature within 30 feet of the adept, other than constructs, fiends, and undead, must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw, or be frightened for 1 minute, or until it takes any damage. If a creature with a challenge rating of 3 or lower fails its saving throw against this effect, it immediately drops to 0 hit points. A frightened creature must spend its turns moving as far away from the adept as it can. As its action, the creature can only use Dash actions, or to try to escape an effect that prevents it from moving. If it has nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.
