[sblock=Backstory]
His true name kept secret, lest his enemies use it against him, "Digger" is a member of a Secret Society known as "The Eternal Order of Enterrers" or as they are publicly known as "The Gravediggers Guild". The group was originally founded centuries ago by the Order of Anubis to protect Mastabas, Crypts, and other Burial Sites. "Digger" roams the lands cleansing places of enterrement, while hunting those who would defile such places. While he often has found himself involved with facing other supernatural threats, his true passion is finding and destroying undead.

[sblock=Features]Background:
“Trust me; I’ve smelled this smell before.”
All characters utilizing this background roll at advantage whenever making checks involving the detection, tracking (if applicable), and identification of the undead and their habits.

Feats
Fell Handed (Unearthed Arcana 6 June 2016)Edit
You master the handaxe, battleaxe, greataxe, warhammer, and maul. You gain the following benefits when using any of them:

You gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls you make with the weapon.
Whenever you have advantage on a melee attack roll you make with the weapon and hit, you can knock the target prone if the lower of the two d20 rolls would also hit the target.
Whenever you have disadvantage on a melee attack roll you make with the weapon, the target takes bludgeoning damage equal to your Strength modifier (minimum of 0) if the attack misses but if the higher of the two d20 rolls would have hit.
If you use the Help action to aid an ally’s melee attack while you’re wielding the weapon, you knock the target’s shield aside momentarily. In addition to the ally gaining advantage on the attack roll, the ally gains a +2 bonus to the roll if the target is using a shield.


Bloodhunter Features
Hunter's Bane
Advantage on Survival checks to track Fey, Fiends & Undead. Advantage on Intelligence checks to recall information about them. If you are actively tracking one of these creature types, you cannot be surprised by any creatures of that type.
Crimson Rite
As a Bonus action, take your level in damage and imbue weapon to do 1d4 extra Fire damage per short or long rest. Damage taken is restored as rite fades and cannot be restored otherwise.
Fighting Style
Great Weapon Fighting
When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.
Blood Maledict
Blood Curse of the Eyeless: Once per short/long rest when an enemy with eyes attacks you, use your Reaction to impose disadvantage on his attack.

Amplify. You may choose to take your Blood rite die in damage. If you do following the triggering attack, the affected enemy has disadvantage on the next attack roll they make.

Order of the Ghostslayer
The Order of the Ghostslayer is the oldest and most driven of the orders, having rediscovered the secrets of blood magic and refined them for combat against the scourge of undeath. Ghostslayers seek out and study the moment of death, obsessing over the mysteries of the transition. Some will sit with the terminally diseased to closely witness their passing, while others go so far as to deliberately have a near-death experience, allowing them to tune their body and senses to the ethereal realms beyond.
Rite of the Dawn
When you join this order at 3rd level, you learn the esoteric rite Rite of the Dawn (detailed below).
Rite of the Dawn. Your rite damage is now radiant type.
If you hit an undead creature with your Rite of the Dawn, it suffers additional radiant damage equal to your Wisdom modifier. (+2)

Feats: Sharpshooter: Ignore 1/2 and 3/4 cover, can shoot long distance without disadvantage, and can take -5 attack for +10 damage.

Racial Abilities:

Background Abilities:

Feature: Heart of Darkness
Those who look into your eyes can see that you have faced unimaginable horror and that you are no stranger to darkness. Though they might fear you, commoners will extend you every courtesy and do their utmost to help you. Unless you have shown yourself to be a danger to them, they will even take up arms to fight alongside you, should you find yourself facing an enemy alone.

Harrowing Event
You were cursed with lycanthropy and later cured. You are now haunted by the innocents you slaughtered.


Class Abilities:

Tinkerer
Beginning at 1st level, you can use Tinker’s Tools to craft basic firearms, as well as basic ammunition for those firearms.

Natural Talent
Proficiency bonus is doubled for one skill proficiency.
Gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls you make using firearms.

Grit
You gain a number of Grit points equal to your proficiency bonus. The number of Grit points you have can never exceed your proficiency bonus.

You can spend these points to fuel various class features. You start knowing one such feature: Aimed Shot. You learn more such features as you gain additional levels in this class.

Any expended Grit points refill at the end of a short or long rest. In addition, you regain 1 Grit point, up to your current maximum, whenever you roll a critical hit with a firearm attack, or you use a firearm to reduce a creature to 0 or fewer hit points. If you reduce a creature to 0 or fewer hit points with a critical hit, you regain only 1 Grit point, not 2.

Some of your Grit features require your target to make a saving throw to resist the feature’s effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:
Grit save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier

Aimed Shot
Beginning at 2nd level, when making an attack with a rearm as part of your attack action, you may choose to expend a number of Grit points up to your current maximum to gain a bonus on the attack roll equal to the number of Grit points spent. If this attack hits, you add the number of Grit points spent to its damage roll as well.

Walking Armory
When you choose this trail at 3rd level, you craft a mechanism which allows you to easily store and equip your personal firearms. You may draw any firearm within arm’s reach without using your object interaction.

Apprentice Guncrafting
When you choose this trail at 3rd level, you can craft new rearms and modify your current ones. One- handed guns are based on the pistol, two-handed guns on the musket, and cone guns on the scattergun. Modifying a rearm requires 1 day of constant work per modi cation. You may remove an existing modi cation at the same time as you add a new one.

Maintenance.
Modifications require constant tuning and maintenance in order to remain in working order. During a long rest, you may maintain a number of modified firearms up to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of one). If a modified firearm is not maintained during a long rest, any attack roll made with that firearm has disadvantage.

Limited Modification.
You may modify a firearm a number of times up to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of once). In addition, every modification falls into a category. You may only place a single modification from each category on a given firearm.

Modifications for firearms are shown on the Modifications chart. At 3rd Level, you gain access to the Long Barrel, Snubnose Barrel, Elemental Barrel modifications. You gain additional modifications as your level increases, as detailed in the Modifications Table.

Personality Traits
I don’t run from evil. Evil runs from me.
I refuse to become a victim, and I will not allow others to be victimized.

Ideal
I kill monsters to make the world a safer place, and to exorcise my own demons. (Good)

Bond
I have a child to protect. I must make the world a safer place for her.

Flaw
I talk to spirits that no one else can see.


Equipment (200 gp start):

Hardened Snubnose Pistol (Loaded, 4 bullets, Misfire 3, Reload)

Flaw:
[/SBLOCK]


[SBLOCK=CLASS FEATURES]
- Spellcasting: Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your cleric spells. The power of your spells comes from your devotion to your deity. You use your Wisdom whenever a cleric spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a cleric spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier (12)
Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier (+4)

- Blessing of the Forge: At 1st level, you gain the ability to imbue magic into a weapon or armor. At the end of a long rest, you can touch one nonmagical object that is a suit of armor or a simple or martial weapon. Until the end of your next long rest or until you die, the object becomes a magic item, granting a +1 bonus to AC if it’s armor or a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls if it’s a weapon. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest.
- Channel Divinity: Choose between multiple Channel Divinity effects, usable 1x per long rest.
- Channel Divinity: Turn Undead: Undead within 30 feet must pass a Wisdom saving throw or be turned for 1 minute or until it takes any damage. Uses an action.
- Channel Divinity: Artisan’s Blessing: Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to create simple items. You conduct an hour-long ritual that crafts a nonmagical item that must include some metal: a simple or martial weapon, a suit of armor, ten pieces of ammunition, a set of tools, or another metal object (see chapter 5, “Equipment,” in the Player’s Handbook for examples of these items). The creation is completed at the end of the hour, coalescing in an unoccupied space of your choice on a surface within 5 feet of you. The thing you create can be something that is worth no more than 100 gp. As part of this ritual, you must lay out metal, which can include coins, with a value equal to the creation. The metal irretrievably coalesces and transforms into the creation at the ritual’s end, magically
forming even nonmetal parts of the creation. The ritual can create a duplicate of a nonmagical item that contains metal, such as a key, if you possess the original during the ritual.

[/sblock][sblock=Features]Background: Entertainer(By Popular Demand)
You can always find a place to perform, usually in an inn or tavern but possibly with a circus, at a theater, or even in a noble’s court. At such a place, you receive free lodging and food of a modest or comfortable standard (depending on the quality of the establishment), as long as you perform each night. In addition, your performance makes you something of a local figure. When strangers recognize you in a town where you have performed, they typically take a liking to you.​

Bard Features

You can inspire others through stirring words or music. To do so, you use a bonus action on your turn to choose one creature other than yourself within 60 feet of you who can hear you. That creature gains one Bardic Inspiration die, a d6.​

Whenever you take the Attack action on your turn, your walking speed increases by 10 feet until the end of the turn, and if a weapon attack that you make as part of this action hits a creature, you can use one of the following Blade Flourish options of your choice. You can use only one Blade Flourish option per turn.​
  • Defensive Flourish. You can expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration to cause the weapon to deal extra damage to the target you hit. The damage equals the number you roll on the Bardic Inspiration die. You also add the number rolled to your AC until the start of your next turn.
  • Slashing Flourish. You can expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration to cause the weapon to deal extra damage to the target you hit and to any other creature of your choice that you can see within 5 feet of you. The damage equals the number you roll on the Bardic Inspiration die.
  • Mobile Flourish. You can expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration to cause the weapon to deal extra damage to the target you hit. The damage equals the number you roll on the Bardic Inspiration die. You can also push the target up to 5 feet away from you, plus a number of feet equal to the number you roll on that die. You can then immediately use your reaction to move up to your walking speed to an unoccupied space within 5 feet of the target.

[sblock=Appearance]With pale skin, short black hair tucked under a small grey cap, and blue eyes, one might mistake Twopaz for a local... except he's a rockgnome only three feet tall. In simplistic olden worn garb and a gemcutter's leather apron (he dare not take it off!), Twopaz might appear as though working class. But there is a sparkle in those eyes, of a young fellow quick of mind and warm of heart.[/sblock]

[sblock=Personality]Twopaz is friendly and curious, a true lover of stone, learning, sunshine and stories. As apprentice to an extentric and sage-like gemcutter and wizard (Vallov), his days have largely been spent in study. This has only strengthened his enjoyment of companionship and time outdoors. Well... that's what he thought until the fateful day he placed that dastardly stone upon the lapidary grinder...

Once I pick a goal, I become obsessed with it to the detriment of everything else in my life. Right now I just want to go home!

I'm used to helping out those who aren’t as smart as I am, and I patiently explain anything and everything to others.

The goal of a life of study is the betterment of oneself.

I am easily distracted by the promise of information.

[sblock=Background]Sage (Wizard's Apprentice). A young Rockgnome Arcane Trickster, an aspiring apprentice in distant Allais' dangerous gem trade, has attempted to facet a pretty piece of semi-translucent stone one night, in the hopes of impressing his mentor (Vallov), thinking it a rare variety of Beryl!

Unfortunately, the stone was cursed, perhaps tossed away by some previous escapee of Barovia?

For a moment everything went dark, the hum of the grindwheel fading into the distance...

The little man awoke in mists, trapped in some macabre demi-plane for close to a year now, where he quickly had to learn how to survive, or die. The locals treated him with distrust, as though being a rockgnome made him some form of foul otherworldy imposter! Oh well, disguise time. He was far from welcome here, quickly learning of other threats, wolves and horrible creatures...

It was a good thing for Twopaz that his previous life, in the sun-bleached rocky hills of Allais, had required skills other than the mere shaping and appraisal of precious raw material. Stealth, a keen eye and a little wizardish trickery. The rockgnome learned quickly, burying himself in all aspects of business. From book-keeping, study of history and far away lands in the hunt for precious stones, through to cleaning machinery and practising simple but effective spells, forming shimmering and refractive gems upon the tools of the trade.

Twopaz has probably only remained alive because of his skillset and cunning, deviousness required by those who trade in gems and deal with clients at times greedy and equally seedy. How better to protect one's work against theft, than by learning the ways of a rogue? Know your enemy. Vallov's training came in handy. Not to mention the old mentor's abilities in the arcane arts, and willingness to share them with his little apprentice.

Through disguise Twopaz managed to trade for basic equipment via the locals. With minor illusions and a gnome's innate ability to hide, little Twopaz has wandered with hope in his eyes. Hope that he'd one day find adventurers, foreigners, other cursed folk, who perhaps might know of the way back home.

The dreariness started to get to him.

Slowly, the hope faded, until now.

Lurking in shadows outside the Old Bonegrinder, he can't help but smile as a mix-matched group of travelers approaches. These surely aren't locals! Perhaps this is his chance... strength in numbers... and finally some interesting conversation! [/sblock]
