Samurai

D&D Samurai

They are warriors who were old soldiers of war, but they stopped being so for a long time, even if they are old or retired they have that supernatural style of handling their weapon in a way of never having lost the condition, these warriors are known as samurai.

The samurai have an attitude of not being interested in their environment or in the current situation, but they are always ready to draw their weapon at any time (it will also depend on the race you choose, if you choose a non-human race, they will bicker)


A human in oddly dressed attire spots a foot soldier up ahead surrounded by goblins. He rushes over with extraordinary speed. He charges in between the barrage of incoming blades, shielding every last one with his scabbard. The goblins stepped back, however it was too late. Unseen by the human soldier, the human slashed all 7 goblins with a single quick draw. He flicked his blade, sheathed his sword, and kept on his way.

An Eladrin silently drinks his ale. Two men interrupted him, threatening him to give over all his money. The Eladrin snickers, then continues drinking his ale. The two men attack. With unnatural speed, the Eladrin throws his ale up in the air and lazily dodges the first jab. He tosses the chair toward the second man before he could react and in a single blink of an eye, his majestic curved blade stood still at the other neck. The Eladrin instinctively caught his ale and took a sip.

An Orc charges toward an elf. The Elf stood calm and composed. As the Orc closes in, the elf focuses ever so much until her mind is completely blank. She opens his eyes and notices an opening in the Orc defense. The Orc lifts his tetsubo ( greatclub) and gets ready to strike. As they met half way, the elf ever so slightly doges his attack then gracefully cleaves through from the left waist past it’s right shoulder. The beast lets out an ugly scream, then falls at his feet.

Whatever the origin or path of these heroes the one thing they all share is their service to their lord and code of behaviour, they are all known as samurai.

Creating a Samurai

Were you born into your characters allegiance, or were you training for the day you could call yourself a samurai even though you were not born into the middle or upper crust of society (yet you seem to know matters of etiquette that could not be matched by your current social position)? Did you have your Daisho(nodachi or naginata) passed down to you by your parents, or did you acquire your weapons known as the soul of a samurai from the local lord of your residence or your master? Did you always have a soul that was meant for honorable deeds in word, action and thought? If this is so, what drove you to such selfless service?

Daisho

You start out with your chosen Samurai weapons: the Katana/Nodachi/Naginata/Longbow and a Wakizashi. They represent your honor and the souls of your ancestors. You may carve a sigil of your god into the pommel. You may summon or resummon these weapons to your hands by meditating over a long rest, should they be lost. They take the appearance of your minds eye.

Fighting Stance

Time in brutal training has allowed you to perfect your ability to adapt your stance to your opponents in combat. You can learn a total of 7 different Stances (Shogun’s Stance is only unlocked at level 20). You start with 2 and learn 2 new stances at the 5th, 10th, and 15th level. Upon reaching 15th level you gain the ability to activate and maintain two Stances at once. Upon Reaching 20th level you can activate all stances simultaneously (except Shogun Stance) and retain them for 2 turns. After the 2 turns you are unable to enter stances for 2 turns and are only able to move 5ft per turn). All activate can only be used once per encounter and can not be used again until after a 24 hour time period, in addition, you also lose access to Shoguns Stance for the duration.

A Stance is activated as a bonus action, and will last until the end of combat, or until you activate a different Stance, if you are knocked prone, become grappled or restrained

Stone Stance Your AC and weapon damage are increased by five, but your movement speed is reduced by half (rounded up) and attacks of opportunity made against you are at advantage . In addition, Enemies attacking allies other than you within 5 feet gain disadvantage on their attack

Wind Stance. While in this stance, you become both quick and maneuverable. You may take the Dash or Disengage action as a bonus action, and you ignore difficult terrain when you Dash. You also have advantage on Dexterity rolls and attacks made against you are at disadvantage. Upon an attack missing you are able to make an opportunity attack against them if they are within range. While Strike from the Void is active you can make this attack regardless of range.

Water Stance. When you successfully hit a creature with a melee weapon attack while in this stance, you may immediately spend your bonus action to attempt to knock the creature prone. If you do this, you force them to make a Dexterity saving throw equal to (8 + your Strength modifier + your proficiency bonus). Failing this attempt will disadvantage you against their rebuff allowing them a touch attack (AC of 10) against you. Additionally, while in this stance, landing an attack of opportunity on an enemy reduces that creatures movement to zero until the beginning of it’s next turn.

Earth Stance. While you are in this stance, you have advantage on Strength checks made to grapple and can hold a two-handed weapon in one hand whilst grappling a creature. Additionally, When you make an attack roll using strength, you may use a bonus action to gain a bonus to the damage roll equal to your proficiency modifier if the attack hit. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Strength saving throw while in this stance, you may use your reaction to gain advantage on that saving throw. Your planted feet however, gain disadvantage on dexterity saves.

Fire Stance. While in this stance, you become fierce and focused, melee attacks and attacks of opportunities are made with advantage. When you hit a creature with an attack, you may add your Dexterity or Wisdom modifier to the damage roll as fire damage, which also doubles on a critical hit.

Lightning Stance. When your enemies are many and your blade must reach them all, become a lightning bolt. Move quickly and unfold your blade by forming an arc between your enemies. As long as you are in this posture, if you use the Dash action, you can attack all the enemies that pass by. These attacks are bonus actions, but treat them as critical if they hit enemies who are unaware of their presence and are unprepared for their attack. Also, once per turn, you can use this posture to attack furiously 3 times. These attacks are incredibly fast but difficult to land accurately, and as such are made without proficiency or ability score bonuses. At the 10th level, you can use this stance to attack a single target 5 additional times without proficiency bonus.

Void Stance. [This stance must be learned by meditating and training your minds eye and overcoming ones self {DMs discretion}] While in this stance, your mind is at its calmest and you see everything using your minds eye. You are immune to all charms, fears, madness, confusions, and other mental disabling effects. You are immune to blinds and are able to see everything up to 100ft regardless of lighting, obstructions, and stealth. Your attacks in this stance double strike (doubles damage)and have advantage. This stance can not be used with other stances. Switching out of this stance leaves you unable to use any stance for 1 turn.

Honor Surge

Upon reaching 2nd level, you can call upon your honor to go beyond what you can normally do for a short while. On your turn, you can take an additional action and bonus action. You must finish a long rest to regain use of this feature. Starting at 17th level, you can use this feature 2 times, but only once per turn, between long rests.

Honor Archetype

Upon reaching 3rd level, choose an archetype that you want to be emulating in combat techniques. Choose Iaijutsu Master, Shogun, Yojimbo, Kyūdō, or Shoyu. The archetype you pick grants you features at 3rd level, and again at 5th, 10th, 15th, and 18th level.

Parry

Upon reaching 3rd level, when another creature hits you with a melee attack, you can use your reaction to reduce the damage by 1d6 + your Dexterity modifier + your Samurai level. Parry can only be used 2 times per long rest. At 5th, 10th and 15th level you gain 2 extra uses. At 16th level it changes from long rest to short rest to gain uses. You must be carrying a bladed melee weapon.

Deflect

Upon reaching 4th level, you may use your Parry on Ranged attacks, but reducing the damage to 0 reflects the attack back to the attacker, dealing the initial intended damage if it hits and causing all intended effects (enemy’s attack roll against his own AC). You must be carrying a bladed melee weapon. This ability can’t be used again until you finish a short or long rest (your uses of Parry and deflect are separate, meaning that you may use one of each before recovering their uses with a rest).

Ability Score Improvement

Upon reaching 4th level, and again at 6th, 8th, 12th, 14th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of you choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. You can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack

Upon reaching 5th level, when you take the attack action, you may attack an additional time. You gain one more extra attack at level 14.

Warrior Spirit

Beginning at 9th level, you can reroll a saving throw that you fail. If you do so, you must use the new roll, and you can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest. You can use this feature twice between long rests starting at 13th level.

Last Effort

At 11th level you have bettered your control over your body. When your hit points drop to zero but you are not killed outright, instead of immediately falling unconscious, you can use your reaction to attack the creature that last damaged you, possibly using your movement as if in your turn. If you can get in attack range of the target, you may choose to gain advantage or deal critical damage if you hit the enemy whithout gaining advantage. Either way, after your attack, you fall unconscious and enter the normal "dying state". You can use this once per long rest.

Precise Strike

Beginning at 12th level your attacks count as critical hits on a 19 on the d20.

One With The Blade
