Flesh and bone are malleable forms to be sculpted and shaped to one’s will. As a metamorph, you can transcend the limits of biology, able to meld objects to your body and grow bone or reform your flesh.
|1st||Morphic Power, Metaform (2 traits), Unarmored Defense|
|6th||War Form, Metaform (3 traits)|
|10th||Body Meld, Metaform (4 traits)|
|18th||Robust Form, Metaform (5 traits)|
1st-level Metamorph feature
You warp flesh and bone through your psychic ability. Your manifesting ability is Constitution. You use your Constitution whenever a power refers to your manifesting ability. In addition, you use your Constitution modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a channeler power you manifest and when making an attack roll with one.
Power save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Constitution modifier
Power attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Constitution modifier
When you gain a new channeler power, you may select a power from the channeler power list or the following powers: accelerated healing, biomorphic skin, chameleon, decay, elastic body, energy cloak, living weapon, martial insight, molecular agitation, size alteration, and speed of thought.
At 1st level, you can select one of the powers above and add it to the list of powers you know. At 10th level, you may add another power from the list above.
1st-level Metamorph feature
As a bonus action, you can alter your physical form, adopting a trait from the Metaform Table. Metaform traits that can make attacks count as simple weapons for you, and use your Strength modifier on attack and damage rolls with them. When you enter your metaform, you gain a number of temporary hit points equal to four times your level in this class. These hit points remain until you finish a long rest, enter your metaform again, or are depleted through damage. You can remain in your metaform for 10 minutes.
While in your metaform, you can take a bonus action to adopt a second trait, or use your action to replace one trait you’ve adopted with a different trait. When you reach certain levels in this class, you can adopt one additional trait: at 6th level (three traits), at 10th level (four traits), and at 18th level (five traits). If you expend a Psychic Burst die on your turn, you can enter your metaform and manifest all traits you are capable at once without an action.
When a metaform trait requires a target to make a saving throw, the save DC is equal to your power save DC.
You can take on trivial, cosmetic changes in your metaform as you will, such as growing body hair or scaly skin, red eyes, or nightmarish features, for instance.
Once you enter your metaform, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest, unless you expend a Psychic Burst die to enter it again. When you reach 10th level, you can enter your metaform twice between rests.
You aren’t limited to the options from the Metaform table. For instance you could grow a sharp beak instead of fangs and deal the same piercing damage, or you could create a myriad of gaping maws along an arm in place of claws. Metaform is intended to allow the metamorph the ability to create a thematic form.
