Inspired by Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy, the Mistborn class is an unparalleled diplomat-warrior for 5e DnD. It is highly experimental, in that it has no subclasses. Instead, it has abilities that you prepare each day, not unlike preparing spells. It may be the first 5e homebrew class to have a Skill Tree (see bottom of document).

Mistborn

The young halfling’s mistcloak flutters quietly it the breeze as she looms a half dozen stories over the city street. Suddenly, she launches into the sky, like a thrown pebble, over the moonlit guards that patrol below. As she begins to fall, she drops a metal coin to the ground, causing her to rocket back into the air high over the castle wall. A guard picks up the coin, and then looks up. A person? Naw. Impossible. He pockets the coin, mumbling about his good luck.

The commander gives a frustrated cry to seize the half-orc on the bridge. Her soldiers inch nervously onto the bridge at both ends. Surrounded, the half-orc spits before raising up both of his arms. The soldiers flinch, and then are flung backward as if pushed by some invisible force. The commander watches helplessly as a dozen soldiers plummet off the bridge.

“Rise up! The time is now!”, the rebel leader says atop his soap box. A listless crowd stands about him, never growing to more than a dozen. Among them stands a heavily tattooed man. A few start to raise their hands, muttering about high taxes, but then stop as they feel their anger subside. Wearing the slightest smile the tattooed man watches them go, thinking to himself, “There will be no rebellion this day.”

Mistborn use Allomancy, the art of pushing and pulling on oneself, metals, and other creatures. By drawing on power from within themselves, or “the mists” so people say, they can enhance their strength and reflexes to superhuman levels, push and pull on metals as if with powerful magnetic force, and even manipulate the emotions of other creatures.

Awakening

All mistborn awaken to their allomantic powers after near-death experiences, most commonly through severe physical trauma. Some awaken as a result of an accident, such as having fallen from a great height. Others awaken through severe mental and emotional anguish — many mistborn origins can be traced to broken homes and abusive guardians, and some institutions persist in ritualizing the practice of awakening through kidnapping.

Those who awaken are said to have been “chosen by the mists”, a divine invocation from a bygone time. They feel a well of power thrumming deep within their bodies, drawing upon it instinctively to fuel their allomantic abilities. With each passing moment a mistborn learns to draw more upon that well, enhancing and expanding their allomantic repertoire.

Allomantic Abilities

A mistborn’s power is the ability to push and pull. By pushing on on their own bodies, they can enhance their strength, speed, and balance. By pulling, they can heighten their senses. They can push and pull on metal, turning copper pieces into dangerous projectiles or moving themselves through the air as if yanked by a powerful rope. By pushing on others they can dampen emotions, or by pulling ignite them.

These powers make mistborn highly sought after by the wealthy and politically powerful, and thus the subject of control and manipulation. Many mistborn adventure to avoid or escape these bonds, while others seek beyond freedom in pursuit of wealth and political power for themselves. Fewer among them decide that the “figure in the mists” they occasionally see is not a hallucination, but perhaps a lead to the true source of allomancy. Whatever their reasons, mistborn bring an untethered mobility and flexibility to any adventuring party, offering combative, exploration, and diplomatic capability for almost any need that arises.

Creating a Mistborn

When creating a mistborn, first think about what circumstances lead to your awakening. Were you seriously injured in an accident and then discovered you could move metals with your mind in your hospital bedroom? Were you groomed for the process by your guardians and ritually beaten alongside other children? Was your trauma so long ago that you do not recall it, yet have since always had a knack for making people act to your advantage?

On whose behalf do you now use your abilities, yourself or another? Do you revel in the thrill of your powers, or do you soberly contemplate its utility?

Do you see your powers as a means to an end, or its unfettered use an end in itself? Does great power come with great responsibility, or the absolute freedom to use it for your own ends? Do you wonder where your powers come from and seek out its origin, or is the past in the past and nothing to be trifled with?

Quick Build

You can make a mistborn quickly by following these suggestions. First, make either Strength or Dexterity your highest ability score, followed by Constitution. Second, choose the urchin background.

Class Features

As a mistborn, you gain the following class features.

Hit Points

  • Hit Dice: 1d8 per mistborn level
  • Hit Points at 1st Level: 8 + your Constitution modifier
  • Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d8 (or 5) + your Constitution modifier per mistborn level after 1st

Equipment

You start with the following equipment, in addition to the equipment granted by your background:

  • (a) two glass daggers, or (b) an obsidian battle axe
  • (a) leather armor, (b) chain shirt, or (c) 10 gp
  • (a) a burglar’s pack, or (b) an explorer’s pack
  • a mistcloak, alchemist’s supplies, a hammer and 10 pitons, and a bag of (1000) ball bearings
Starting Equipment

When you create a mistborn, you can start with 4d4 x 10 gp instead of receiving the equipment from your class and background.

A Mistborn’s Mistcloak

A mistcloak is a charcoal grey cloak made up of hundreds of long, ribbon-like strips, sewn together at the shoulders and chest but flowing freely like streamers down to one’s ankles. In a bygone era, it helped hide mistborn in heavy mists and served as a signifier of status. It is constructed to come free when pulled, so that it cannot be used against a mistborn in combat.

Allomancy

Beginning at 1st level, you have awakened to and begun to hone your allomantic powers.

Misting Talents

Your allomancy is manifested in various abilities, such as the pulling and pushing of metals and emotions. These abilities are called misting talents, and the kinds of misting talents you have access to increase as you gain levels. At 1st level, you have access to 3 misting talents: PewterarmSteelpush, and Ironpull.

Preparing Misting Talents and Abilities

You prepare the list of misting talents that are available for you to use, choosing from the misting talent list. When you do so, choose 3 misting talents. You must meet the talent’s prerequisites before you can prepare it. There are two kinds of misting talents: allomantic powers, which serve as your foundational abilities, and everything else, which improve your allomantic powers. The number of misting talents you can prepare increases as you gain levels, as shown in the Mistborn Talents column of the Mistborn table.

You can also change your list of prepared talents when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of misting talents requires time spent altering your body chemistry with alchemist’s supplies: at least 5 minutes for each misting talent on your list.

Allomantic Ability

Your allomantic ability modifier is +2 for your misting talents, since the potency of your allomancy depends on your time and experience as an allomancer as opposed to any inherent trait. You use your allomantic ability modifier when setting the save DC for any misting talent you use and when making an attack roll with one. Your allomantic ability modifier increases as you gain mistborn levels, as shown in the mistborn table.

Allomantic save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Allomantic Ability modifier
Allomantic attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Allomantic Ability modifier

Using Allomancy

While some misting talents grant you passive benefits, other misting talents interact with the world around you. If one of these talents requires you to target an object or creature, you use your Allomantic Range, as shown in the Mistborn table. If a talent refers to the weight of an object, it refers to its weight and the weight of anything it is attached to or is directly supporting it. Movement made via misting talents is considered forced movement, and thus does not trigger opportunity attacks.

You cannot push or pull on metal that is embedded in or inside creatures. For example, you cannot push against a pierced metal earring or the iron inside a person’s blood. You can tell whether or not anything you can see is metal. Additionally, when metal you are aware of is obscured from your view, you can still act upon it with your talents. Your talents can penetrate most barriers, but is blocked by 1 foot of stone or 3 feet of wood or dirt.

Allomantic Attack and Damage

When you steelpush or ironpull a metal weighing less than 1 pound, such as a copper piece, you can instead move it a maximum distance equal to your allomantic range and you can make a ranged spell attack with it (or double that range with disadvantage). When you do so, you target a creature in the line of that push or pull and add your allomantic attack modifier to the attack roll. On a hit, it deals 1d8 + your allomantic ability modifier piercing damage.

Allomantic damage = 1d8 + your Allomantic Ability modifier piercing damage

When you use your ironpull or steelpush on an object that’s being carried, the creature can choose to let the object go instead of making a saving throw. If the creature is not easily separable from the metal, such as if it is wearing a suit of armor, then you instead push or pull the entire creature.

Anchoring

Also at 1st level, whenever you could steelpush or ironpullagainst a metal source, you can instead choose to anchor yourself to the target metal.

While anchored to a thing that exceeds your weight, you have advantage on ability checks and saving throws against effects that would forcibly move you, and your size category increases by 1 for the purposes of steelpushing and ironpulling. If when you steelpush or ironpull against a target whose weight exceeds your own and your size category is greater than your target’s, then you can choose to push or pull them instead of being pushed or pulled.

While anchored to a thing that is below your weight, you have advantage on ability checks and saving throws against effects that would forcibly move it away from you. When a creature attempts to move metal you are anchored to, it must make a Strength saving throw against your Allomantic save DC, breaking your anchor on a success. Otherwise it must drag the combined weight of you and it, if it is able to.

You can drop an anchor at any time. To reestablish an anchor, you need to make a new steelpush or ironpull.

Size Category

The following table depicts the size category you would need to have for the purposes of steelpushing and ironpulling to push away or pull close a creature or object that is heavier than you.

Target SizeYour Size Category
SmallMedium
MediumLarge
LargeHuge
HugeGargantuan

Detect Metal

Also at 1st level, as an Action, you can identify the locations of all metals within your allomantic range. If the metals are of different shapes, sizes, and compositions, you can differentiate between them. This detection is blocked by 3 feet of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 10 feet of wood or dirt. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your Allomantic Ability Modifier. You regain expended uses at the end of a long rest.

Mistrider

Starting at 2nd level, you begin to feel the mists free you from your earthly bounds, letting you soar through the air quickly and suddenly. When you have the coinshot and/or lurcher misting talents prepared, you can as a Bonus Action steelpush and/or ironpull on metal that is not being worn or carried. You cannot make an attack using this feature.

The number of times you can steelpush or ironpull each time you use this ability increases to twice at 7th level and thrice at 13th level.

Flare

Also at 3rd level, you learn how to flare your allomantic powers, allowing you to draw out extra power from your allomancy. The list of flares is presented after the list of misting talents below.

When you use an allomantic power, you can choose to flare it. Flaring an allomantic power grants you benefits tied to that power, as well as additional benefits from other misting talents you have prepared tied to that power, all of which last a duration depending on the power. You have access to an allomantic power’s flare when you have that allomantic power prepared.

You can flare your allomantic powers twice. You regain expended uses at the end of a short or long rest. This increases to 3 times at 9th level and 4 times at 17th.

Ability Score Improvement

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack

Beginning at 5th level, you can Attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your Turn.

Allomantic Strike

Starting at 6th level, your allomantic abilities count as magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Duralumin

At 10th level, when you flare an allomantic power, you can choose to exhaust it completely to draw out incredible power for a short duration. The flare’s duration increases to 1 minute. Once it ends, you can no longer benefit from any misting talent that has that allomantic power as a prerequisite until you finish a long rest.

Improved Allomantic Power

At 11th level, you are so suffused with the mists that all of your melee weapon strikes and allomantic attacks move with greater speed and weight. Your damage dealt by your allomantic abilities increases from 1d8 to 2d8, and when you hit with a melee weapon attack using a metal weapon, you deal an additional 1d8 damage of the same type.

Pewterdrag

By 14th level, the mists can sustain you for long periods of time. As long as you have the pewterarm misting talent prepared, you regain hit points equal to your allomantic ability modifier at the end of short rests and you can go up to one week without food or sleep without accruing levels of exhaustion while still gaining the benefits of rests.

Savant

By 15th level, you’ve used an allomantic power so much that it has changed you physiologically. Choose one of your allomantic powers. You always have it prepared and it does not count against the number of misting talents you can prepare.

In addition, you can use your Duralimin with that allomantic power twice before you can no longer benefit from any misting talent that has it as a prerequisite.

Recomposition

At 18th level, once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose to change your list of prepared misting talents.

Hero of Ages

When you reach 20th level, you can unlock the full potential of allomancy for a short duration. As a bonus action, you can choose any number of you allomantic abilities you have prepared and treat them as if they are flared. This benefit lasts for 1 minute and does not consume any uses of flare. Once you use this ability, you cannot do so again until the end of your next long rest.

Misting Talents

If a misting talent has prerequisites, you must meet them to prepare it. You can prepare a misting talent at the same time you meet its prerequisites. A level prerequisite refers to your level in this class.

Pewterarm

You can enhance your body’s strength, agility, and balance. You gain the following allomantic power:

Pewter Defense

While you are conscious and not wearing armor nor wielding a shield, your AC equals 10 + your Strength modifier + your Dexterity modifier.

Coinshot

You can push metals away from you with your mind. You gain the following allomantic power:

Steelpush

When you take the Attack action, you can forgo any one of your attacks to instead push a metal source. If the object weighs more than you do, you are instead pushed away from it. Unless stated otherwise, you can push or be pushed up to 10 ft. This increases to 20 ft at 5th level, 30 ft at 11th, and 40 ft at 17th.

If the metal is being worn or carried, the creature carrying it can attempt a Strength saving throw against your Allomantic save DC. On a success, the metal is unaffected, but you are pushed directly away from the creature.

Lurcher

You can pull metals towards you with your mind. You gain the following allomantic power:

Ironpull

When you take the Attack action, you can forgo any one of your attacks to instead pull a metal source. If the object weighs more than you do, you are instead pulled towards it. Unless stated otherwise, you can pull or be pulled up to 10 ft. This increases to 20 ft at 5th level, 30 ft at 11th, and 40 ft at 17th.

If the metal is being worn or carried, the creature carrying it can attempt a Strength saving throw against your Allomantic save DC. On a success, the metal is unaffected, but you are pulled directly towards the creature.

Soothing and Rioting

The allomantic powers of brasspush and zincpull do not let an allomancer know what a creature is feeling. A creature can be feeling an innumerable number of emotions at varying intensities at any given time. By pushing or pulling an emotion that is not already primed to be suppressed or ignited, a callous allomancer may rouse a target’s suspicions and expose their touch. Creatures aware of a person’s ability to manipulate emotions may become more wary and actively avoid them, so those who specialize in soothing and rioting tend to obscure their abilities for as long as possible.

Rioter

Prerequisite: 3rd level
You can pull on a creature’s emotions, inflaming them. You gain the following allomantic power:

Zincpull

As an Action, choose a creature other than yourself within your allomantic range. For as long as you maintain concentration, creatures gain advantage on charisma checks against the target that rely on the intensity of one of the following emotions plus an additional benefit tied to that emotion:

  • Joy. You excite the target’s sense of happiness and wonder. It has disadvantage on saving throws against charm effects.
  • Anger. You ignite the target’s sense of irritation and displeasure. When it attacks, it cannot help but attack recklessly. It gains advantage on its first attack roll on each of its turns and grants advantage to the first attack roll made against it before the start of each of its turns.
  • Fear. You heighten the target’s sense of anxiety and danger. It has disadvantage on saving throws against fear effects.

When a target suspects their emotions are being manipulated, or at the end of each of its turns in combat, it can make a Wisdom saving throw against your Allomantic save DC. On a success, it becomes aware of the manipulation’s source, can choose to end the ability’s effect on them, and can’t be the target of this ability again for the next hour or unless it allows it.

Soother

Prerequisite: 3rd level
You can push on a creature’s emotions, dampening them. You gain the following allomantic power:

Brasspush

As an Action, choose a creature other than yourself within your allomantic range. For as long as you maintain concentration, creatures gain advantage on charisma checks against that target that rely on the suppression of one of the following emotions plus an additional benefit tied to that emotion:

  • Joy. You subdue the target’s sense of happiness and wonder. It has advantage on saving throws against charm effects.
  • Anger. You quench the target’s sense of irritation and displeasure. When it attacks, it cannot help but attack conservatively. It cannot gain advantage on its attack rolls and attack rolls against it cannot be made with advantage.
  • Fear. You repress the target’s sense of anxiety and danger. It has advantage on saving throws against fear effects.

When a target suspects their emotions are being manipulated, or at the end of each of its turns in combat, it can make a Wisdom saving throw against your Allomantic save DC. On a success, it becomes aware of the manipulation’s source, can choose to end the ability’s effect on them, and can’t be the target of this ability again for the next hour or unless it allows it.

When a creature becomes suppressed, it must make a Charisma saving throw, taking 4d8 psychic damage and becoming stunned until the end of its next turn on a failed save, or half as much damage on a success.

As an Action on subsequent turns while brass or zinc is flared, you can enflame or suppress the same target or choose a new target.

Vigor

Prerequisites: 15th level, Pewterarm, Juggernaut prepared
As a Bonus Action, you can end any effect that a Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution saving throw could end. Also, if, when you flare pewter or start your turn while pewter is flared, you have less than half your maximum hit points, you regain hit points equal to 1d10 + your level.

Atium

Prerequisites: 17th level, two misting talent prepared slots
As a Bonus Action, you can burn atium. While it burns, you can see into the brief future. You gain the following benefits:

  • Any attacks against you miss, unless it’s a critical hit or you allow it to hit. Critical hits against you are treated as normal hits.
  • When you would be made to make a Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution saving throw, you can first as a Reaction move up to half your speed, potentially causing you to no longer be targeted by the effect. If you have coinshot and/or lurcher prepared, you can steelpush or ironpull yourself instead.
  • When you miss with an attack, you instead hit.

These benefits last for 1 minute. Once you use this ability, you cannot do so again until the end of your next long rest.
