Curse Bearer

Perhaps you were born cursed, unlucky, spurned by the gods: somehow, a shadow has always hung over you. Through magical practice or sheer force of will, you have bound this shadow to your service.

  • You learn the bestow curse spell, which you can cast as a 3rd level spell without expending a spell slot once per day. Choose Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma to be your spellcasting ability for this spell; the save DC is 8 + your proficiency bonus + your spellcasting ability modifier. Being attuned to cursed magic items increases the power of your curse. If you are attuned to one cursed magic item when you use this benefit, you cast the spell as a 5th-level spell. If you are attuned to two cursed magic items, you cast the spell as if using a 7th-level slot. If you are attuned to three cursed magic items, you cast the spell as if using a 9th-level slot.
  • Whenever you are hit by a nonmagical attack while wearing cursed armor you are attuned to, you can use your reaction to gain resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical attacks until the start of your next turn.
  • If you are attuned to a cursed weapon, you gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls you make with the weapon.
