Stigma Blade

STIGMA BLADE

A general outline of the class and what to expect from it goes here.

Level 0

What you get when generating a new Stigma Blade character.
- 3 Passive Abilities, with a choice of how one functions.
- 1 Quick ability.
- Learn 3 Active Abilities out of a list of 6.
- Choose 1 Overdrive Ability out of a list of 2.
- Choose 2 Dazed Abilities out of a list of 4.

Passive

[P] Stigma Blade's Endurance - The Stigma Blade gains +20 Maximum HP. Additionally, when not engaged in battle, the Stigma Blade may spend LP to recover HP, which each LP spent recovering +15HP.

[P] Mark of the Exile: All Stigma Blades are fueled by one of two different power sources: Celestial or Abyssal. Your choice of power source determines what element momentum your M-Stigma abilities generates, what element momentum you consume to activate C-Stigma, and which element Stigma-elemental damage deals. When creating a Stigma Blade, choose one of the following as your Mark of the Exile effect:
- Celestial: Stigma momentum and damage is Fire. Whenever you cast a Spell, you gain a Celestial Mark. When you use a Technique with a melee weapon, you can choose to expend any number of Celestial Marks in order to either roll an extra damage die, or True Heal the Stigma Blade for +4 HP, per Mark.
- Abyssal: Stigma momentum and damage is Water. Whenever you cast a Spell, you gain a Abyssal Mark. When you use a Technique with a melee weapon, you can choose to expend any number of Abyssal Marks in order to either roll an extra damage die, or True Strike an additional enemy for 4 water damage, per Mark.
(If you're playing Dantali Stigma Blade, Wizardry functions a little bit differently with "Stigma" Elements than it does normally. Rather than being able to swap out the element for each ability freely, you can instead change the element that corresponds with your chosen Mark of the Exile option while otherwise keeping the same rules. This would let you play an Abyssal Mark of the Exile that has earth based stigma spells and True Strikes when expending marks rather than water, for example, or a Celestial that still expends marks for True Heals, but has Air based stigma spells!)

[P] The Blades Call To Me: Any melee weapon that the Stigma Blade equips, increases its die potency by one step. This applies to Barehanded damage, as well.

Quick

[Q] Seal Breaker: To use Seal Breaker, you must voice your desire for power - whether you calmly request your desire be sated, or passionately demand it at the top of your lungs, the choice is yours.
Draw massive power from the Stigma, refilling your MP to its maximum instantly. Then roll 1d10:

1-2: No Special Effect
3-4: Inflicts Long Burning II on the Stigma Blade.
5-6: The Stigma Blade is inflicted with the Wound (30) Condition, reducing Max HP by 30. Worsen existing wounds by 30.
7: Reduces the Stigma Blade's LP to 0. If LP is already 0, reduce the Stigma Blade's HP to 1 instead.
8: The Stigma Blade is dealt Supreme damage equal to your current HP. Allies may offer to suffer any amount of this damage instead, reducing the amount you take.
9: The Drive gauge of all enemies instantly fills to maximum.
10: A weapon you are holding (if any) is destroyed, and you are equipped with Lunacalibur instead. (Lunacalibur functions as a weapon with the same WGT as the weapon it replaces, or 0WGT if you had no weapon equipped, 1d12+13 potency, generates M-Stigma, and all physical damage dealt with it is Stigma.) At the end of the battle, it dissipates back into nothingness, and your HP is reduced to 1.
