Love transmutation magic? Interested in playing a character dedicated to only one school of magic?
Even more specialized than a specialist wizard, the yamabushi can only ever cast transmutation spells. But they can cast any transmutation spell, whether arcane or divine. Choose from five paths to follow: razor wind, starry eye, primal dream, trying steel, or maker’s hand. Each path presents a different approach to transmutation magic.
Yamabushi seek nothing short of perfection—in both body and soul. They seek to transmute themselves into an ideal, to realize their truest potential, to unlock the secrets buried within, to understand themselves. They learn to control their bodies through intense training that incorporates spiritual discipline and mystic knowledge. They learn to channel transmutation magic—both arcane and divine—through their mastery of themselves. The precise nature of their devotion can differ, hence the different paths, but their quest for change is paramount.
More than just the class, a new PC race is presented that is deeply tied to the yamabushi. The daitengu are the fey cousins of the kotengu (or tengu) you all know and love. Play a daitengu yamabushi today!
