Fighter - Fey Knight
These fighters draw their powers from the fey realms, using it to render themselves unpredictable in battle. They undergo extensive training in order to master control over the powers held in their body, before being able to manifest them. These remarkable soldiers often guard the realms from creatures that lost their ways.
Starting at 3rd level, you gain some control over the ever-changing magic of the fey. It imbues you and gives you an edge in battle. Choose one of the following powers:
Stealthy. After using your action on a turn, you can use your bonus action to become invisible, this effect lasts until the start of your next turn.
Ephemeral. You can use your bonus action to teleport up to 30 closer to an enemy creature.
Beguiling. As an action, you target one humanoid or beast that she can see within 30 feet of you. If the target can see the you it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier), or be magically charmed. It does so with advantage if it is hostile to you, or you or your companions are fighting it. The charmed creature regards you as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn't under your control, it takes your requests or Actions in the most favourable way it can. Each time you or your allies do anything harmful to the target, or ask to perform an action that would be harmful to it, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. Otherwise, the effect lasts 10 minute or until you end the effect as a bonus action. If a target's saving throw is successful, the target is immune to this ability for the next 24 hours.
You can use the powers granted by this ability a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier per long rest. You can change which power you can use as part of a short or long rest.
Also at 3rd level, you can touch a creature and magically knows the creature's current emotional state. If the target fails a Charisma saving throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier), you also learn the creature's alignment.
Starting at 7th level, you cast the spell disguise self at will, without expending a spell slot. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for this spell.
In addition while under the effect of the spell, you can add a 1d6 bonus to your Deception (Charisma) checks.
Starting at 10th level, the powers granted by your Fey Paths ability improve.
Stealthy. Your first attack after using this ability deals an additional 1d12 force damage.
Ephemeral. You can touch another willing creature to bring it with you when you teleport, and aren’t restricted to teleporting towards an enemy.
Beguiling. The duration increases to 1 hour, and hostile creatures no longer have advantage on the save but creatures you are fighting still do.
In addition you can now decide at the start of each of your turn which power you want to use, instead of after a rest.
Starting at 15th level, when you roll initiative and have no use of Fey Paths remaining, you regain 1 use of it.
The fey has forever changed you, the very core of your being is infused with their magic. Starting at 18th level, you become proficient in Wisdom Saving throws (if you already are become proficient in Charisma saving throws instead), you are immune to being charmed and magic can't put you to sleep. In addition you can now telepathically communicate with any creature within 60 feet of you.
It’s been a while since I made a subclass, since I’ve been working on many monster compendiums and adventure, but it’s fun to delve back in.
WotC has made many fey themed subclasses, from the archway warlock, to the fey wanderer ranger and the latest wild soul barbarian. But it seems that they didn’t include fighters in the mix.
So here is my attempt at a fey knight. A fighter that uses all aspects of the fey in and out of battle, be it to charm its foes, or read their heart. That fighter possesses an accumulation of what I would call the “most common” fey powers.
I mean fey is a very encompassing word, from red caps to displacer beasts, without forgetting hags and the like, so there are many abilities that go around, but these seem to be the most recurring ones. Being an invisible and uncatchable a**hole that charms people seems to be a good summary of what fey is.
