D&D 5E The Planetouched Lineages (Tieflings/Aasimar/Genasi/Axani/Cansin/Liminaire)

Some additional abilities and options. One is a legacy trait to reproduce the Mephling PC race from the Planar Handbook, and the other is a spell mentioned when describing the Janni in the Genasi entry.

Alternate Elemental Legacy Trait
Elemental Breath - You can expel a burst of elemental energy with your breath, much like how your possible Mephit ancestor could. Your elemental breath is a 15 foot cone with a spell save DC determined by your constitution score. It does 2d4 damage of one type that you pick at character creation from the following options: Acid, Bludgeoning, Cold, Fire, Lightning, Necrotic, Piercing, Poison or Radiant. Once you use this ability you can roll a 1d6 at the start of each round, if you roll a 6 you can use it again. You can also use this ability again after a short or long rest. This ability replaces Elemental Legacy.

This is a spell for Druids, Sorcerers, or Wizards
Passage of the Elemental Traveler
4th-level transmutation
Casting Time: 1 hour (Ritual)
Range: Touch

Known among the elders of the Genasi Janni clans, is the secret rite that makes aids the Janni when they travel across the varied elemental planes. Shaping elemental essences obtained from the border regions between the elemental planes, they conduct a rite calling upon elemental spirits asking for aid and passage. At the end of the rite the caster (if they're a Genasi) and up to 6 other Genasi can change their Elemental Nature trait if they possess such a trait.

So when working on the Liminaire and Legacy of the Traveller, I realized there's no Teleportation cantrip. So I had to come up with something.

So the revised Legacy is:
Liminal Legacy (Legacy Trait)
Legacy of the Traveler- Your command of shaping makes you adept at finding the spaces between the planes which you can momentary slip or stomp through. The powers of this legacy are: the cantrip Dimension Hop (see below), at 3rd level Longstrider cast as a 2nd-level spell once before requiring a long rest, and at 5th level Misty Step cast once before requiring a long rest.
Alternate Spells: Replace Longstrider with Expeditious Retreat.
Dimension Hop
Conjuration cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
In a blink you teleport instantly to an unoccupied space that you can see within 15 feet. If it's obstructed and you'd teleport into a solid object, then you can't teleport there.
