Evangelist

From Sigil - Planar Legends
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Typically hailing from a mundane pastime and shaped by some dramatic or traumatic event, the Evangelist is so fanatically devoted to their God that they are directly granted power by them, or at least they claim. Recognized as a necessity by some priests, an inevitablity by others, and a liability by the rest, the evangelist typically picks just a few aspects of their chosen deity's portfolio and follows them zealously and to the letter. The foremost goal and greatest accomplishment for an evangelist would be someone's conversion from beliefs they view as false to acceptance of their own. To such an end the evangelist is capable of casting powerful boons on their allies, and bringing terrible punishment on their enemies.

Being able to cast 0 spells of a certain level per day means the Evangelist cannot cast spells of that level unless bonus spell slots of the appropriate level are granted by a high charisma.

As a rule of thumb, Evangelists can cast spell levels up to a third their class level, rounded up.


Vicious Mockery 30 second cooldown, 1 minute duration:

Taunt a target, reducing their attack bonus, damage, AC, saves, and skills based on your level. At higher levels deal damage based on your performance skill.

Bard Song Bonuses

Evangelists are able to sing a song that can bolster their allies. Deafened creatures are not affected by the Evangelist's singing. Once toggled, the song continuously affects all allies within 30 feet, repeating every 5 minutes with chorus and crescendos automatically playing at their point in the song.

As Evangelists level up they'll be able to add verses, choruses, and finally crescendos to their music. Each of these three pieces of song work behaves differently from the others.

Verses play for the entire duration of the song. In this way, a verse behaves similarly to the way a normal bard might play their music. Choruses play at the start of every song, for 3 rounds at the top of every minute for the duration of the song, and the final 3 rounds of the song. Crescendo play at the start of every song, for 1 round every 90 seconds for the duration of the song, and for the final round of the song.
