Elegant Accoutrements

3rd-level Fashion Binder feature

You gain proficiency with whips and either the Deception or Persuasion skill (your choice). You also gain proficiency with tailor’s tools. If you already have this proficiency, you gain proficiency in one other type of artisan’s tools of your choice.

In addition, you can choose to use Charisma instead of Intelligence for your spellcasting ability and for artificer features.

Fashion Binder Spells

3rd-level Fashion Binder feature

You always have certain spells prepared after you reach particular levels in this class, as shown in the Fashion Binder Spells table. These spells count as artificer spells for you, but they don’t count against the number of artificer spells you prepare.

Each spell is in the Player’s Handbook, unless it has a dagger in which case it is linked to the appropriate page.

Ensorcelled Raiment

3rd-level Fashion Binder feature

You infuse a set of clothing you wear with magic as an action. It remains magical as long as it remains within 15 feet of you, but its benefits can only be applied to you. While wearing your ensorcelled raiment, you gain the following benefits:

  • While not wearing armor , except your infused raiment, you add your Charisma bonus (minimum 1) to your AC, provided you aren’t holding a shield or adding another ability other than Dexterity to your AC.
  • You add your Charisma modifier (minimum 0) to initiative rolls.
  • As an action, you can change the appearance of your raiment and make minor cosmetic changes to your body, such as changing the length and style of your hair, or the color of your eyes, hair, or skin.
  • You can cause your raiment to produce a length of cloth from its folds that functions as a whip, but you can add your Intelligence or Charisma modifier to its attack and damage rolls instead of Strength. You can do this as part of an attack or summon it at will until you have your raiment recall it.

Your ensorcelled raiment is always a valid target for one of your artificer infusions. You can also transform magical clothing, but you must be attuned to it, if required, to use the item. The ensorcelled raiment counts as a wondrous item, armor, and weapon for the purpose of which infusions can be applied to it.

Once you have created an ensorcelled raiment, you can’t do so again until you finish a long rest, and any raiment you’ve previously created loses any magical properties you gave it.

Radiant Fashion

5th-level Fashion Binder feature

Whenever a creature must make a saving throw against one of your enchantment or illusion spells, it makes its save with disadvantage, provided it is within 20 feet of you.

Additionally, you can make two attacks with your ensorcelled raiment’s whip when you take the Attack action, and the damage you deal with any whip increases to 1d6. As you reach certain levels in this class, the damage you deal with a whip increases at: 11th level (1d8) and 17th level (1d10).

Animate Cloth

9th-level Fashion Binder feature

When you hit a creature with your ensorcelled raiment’s whip, you can attempt to bind it in folds of magical cloth. Your target must succeed on a Strength saving throw against your spell save DC or be restrained for 1 minute. It can use its Action to attempt a new saving throw, freeing itself on a success. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Intelligence or Charisma modifier (minimum once), and regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Stylish Ensemble

15th-level Fashion Binder feature

While wearing your ensorcelled raiment, you can cast alter self at will without spell components. Any adaptations not natural to your normal form are created as clothing or accessories matching your raiment.

Additionally, when you are hit by a melee weapon attack, you can choose to have it miss you instead. Once you cause an attack to miss, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest, or unless you expend a spell slot of 3rd level or higher to use it again.
