Special Traits

  • Sculpt Spells. When the arcane navigator casts an evocation spell, he may choose a number of creatures equal to 1 + the spell’s level. Those creatures automatically succeed on saving throws against the spell, and they take no damage if they would normally take half damage on a successful save.
  • Sextant Savvy. The arcane navigator makes any ability or skill check with advantage to avoid getting lost.
  • Wind Ritual. While on the deck of a ship, the arcane navigator can attempt to create moderate strength winds for up to four hours. The arcane navigator performs a special 10 minute ritual, at the end of which it casts gust of wind without expending a slot.
  • Special Gear. Scroll of spider climb, scroll of fly.
  • Spellcasting. The arcane navigator is a 4th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 16, +6 to hit with spell attacks). The wizard has the following spells prepared:


  • Quarterstaff. Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 0) bludgeoning damage.
  • Dagger. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.


  • Shield. The arcane navigator may use a 1st level spell slot to cast shield. Until the start of its next turn, the arcane navigator gains +5 to AC.


This canny arcanist combines nautical know-how with a readiness to bring its magical powers to bear against any threat to its ship, whether to attack or to defend.
