A Class That Turns Its Struggle Into Its Strength
The Accursed, a halfcaster class that has taken control of the curse that ailed it! At some point in their past, each accursed was afflicted with a permanent curse designed to make them endlessly suffer. Not content with accepting their fate, the accursed found a way to bring the curse under their control, utilizing its magic while mitigating the worst of its effects. They can use their Jinx feature to imbue other creatures with a small amount of curse energy with a touch, and use their Curse Control to Suppress their curse’s ailments or Afflict other creatures with them temporarily.
Accurseds are defined by their Accursed Affliction, the curse that they made their own, and by their choice of curse ability, the ability score – Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma – that they used to bring their curse to heel. Each affliction has its own method of approaching exploration and combat and its own list of curse spells tied to the magic of that curse, as well as lingering ailments that add some complication to its bearer's every day life!
