    Fighter Martial Archetype - Destined Warrior
    You are a warrior of legend, your birth was preordained by the stars millennia ago. From the day of your birth you looked upon those stars for guidance and strength, and you have noticed an extra twinkle from them that no one else seemed to be able to see. In times of trouble they always lent you strength and support.

    Marks of the Destined Warrior
    At 3rd level, you gain visible astral marks on your body denoting the constellations. These marks can be anywhere on your body, but are clearly noticeable. Each of these marks allows you to call upon the stars support in your daily life. You gain three astral abilities granted from the stars. You can switch these abilities when you level up as a fighter as long as you meet all prerequisites. At level 7, 10, and 15 you gain an additional astral ability.

    Weapon of the Chosen One
    At level 7, you gain an the ability to transform a weapon through your astral abilities. After a 10 minute ritual, the weapon begins to sparkle and glow as if in starlight. The weapon provides 20 feet bright light and 20 feet dim light and it has the ability to hit creatures on the astral or spectral plane. The chosen one may summon this weapon into their hands as part of an object interaction, and once per long rest they can sheath the blade in astral energy causing it to do an extra 1d8 radiant energy for 1 minute.

    Astral Assistance
    At level 10, you have learned to draw upon the lifeblood of the stars. You may spend one minute in quiet meditation as starlight slowly gathers around you. After completion of the meditation, you regain 1d10 * proficiency mod in hit points. This ability can be used again after you have completed a long rest.

    Resilience of the Fated One
    You are the fated one, and the fated one continues fighting against all odds. Once per day, at level 15, when you receive damage causing you to fall below 0 HP, you may choose to remain conscious and continue fighting. During this time, you can act normally, but you continue to make death saving throws. If you fail three death saves you immediately fall over dead. If you succeed in three death saving throws, you regain 1 HP.

    Astral Transformation
    At level 18, once per day, you can absorbs the essences of the stars into yourself as a bonus action. For one minute, you glow with an astral light. During that time you gain Truesight to 120 feet and resistance to piercing, slashing, bludgeoning, and radiant damage.
