The other day, the magically talented Critical Bard pointed out that if there are fallen aasimar shouldn’t there be some sort of celestial tiefling subrace? Well, who are we to not deliver on the possibility, especially as tieflings are one of the favored race options at the Mage College. So we present to you the Ascended Tiefling subrace, following the pattern of the Tome of Foes style subraces with brand new art from our very own Head Curator Kannah to go with it. If you like today’s creation let us know on Twitter or the comments below. Be sure to check out Critical Bard, he’s an incredible artist worthy of the title Bard.
If you’re interested in seeing exclusive content from us at the Mage College, consider joining our Patreon for spells, subclasses, feats, and other monthly goodies. Without further ado, we present: The Ascended Tiefling!
Some tiefling are called to a greater purpose. Through a bit of celestial intervention, ascended tiefling are reclaimed to glory, defying the infernal purpose Asmodeus set for them. These tiefling, despite being of hellish origin, are granted celestial powers through this redemption.
The traits of this subrace replace the tiefling’s Ability Score Increase and Infernal Legacy traits given in the Player’s Handbook.
Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 2, and your Wisdom score increases by 1.
Celestial Calling. You know the sacred flame cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast the sanctuary once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. When you reach 5th level, you can cast the lesser restoration spell once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
