    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    A Kyudo Master is proficient with all simple weapons and all strung ranged weapons and the storm bow. They are not proficient with any armor.

    Main class features

    Storm bow
    Passed down from distant ancestors or created from their own hands is a specialialy crafted bow. The bow is feared by many for its lethality and very little know how to reproduce it. The Storm bow is a massive bow that is roughly 6 feet in length and incredibly powerful sturdy. The weapon deals 1d10 piercing damage with a 19-20x2 crit, range of 60ft. The bow is unique because the drawing force required to fire it makes it a particularly dangerous weapon to those of great strength. Able to add their strength modifier to damage as well as adding +10ft to its range per strength modifier.

    focus, self
    Life of a Kyudo master is requires more then just combat, it requires inner focus. To realign oneself to their own world and abilities. Every day they must spend a chosen hour on meditation where the would not be disturbed. As long as they do this meditation daily they gain an insight bonus to their ac and saves against enchantment equal to their wisdom modifier +1 for every three levels they are in this class.

    wall climb
    A Kyudo Master is a master of their environment, using all that is around them to their advantage. Starting at level 2 they gain a climb speed equal to half of their normal movement.

    eye of the arrow
    Starting at level 3 a Kyudo master may prepare an arrow with a piece of their own soul. Preparing such an arrow requires a full round action and may only ever have one such arrow prepared at a time. The Kyudo master may concentrate and look at the world around them as if they occupied the area where the arrow is. Allowing them to shoot the arrow and look at the surroundings where the arrow is. The concentration check needed to see from the arrow is equal to the distance the arrow is from the Kyudo master in feet divided by 5.

    Fast movement
    Starting at level 4 a Kyudo master gains a +10ft enhancment bonus to their movement speed for every 4 levels they have of this class.

    Focus, clear thoughts
    After focusing for the day a Kyudo master may clear their mind while aiming their bow. Eliminating all stray thoughts as if under the affect of a mind blank spell. While doing so they may only think of the target in which they are choosing to fire upon. Doing so requires a movement equivalent action to prepare the arrow upon your bow and completely empty their mind. For one round, all ranged strikes gain an additional +1d8 piercing damage and a +2 bonus to hit. All bow attacks are considered focused shots for this round.

    Scattering arrow
    A Kyudo masters arrows are part of themselves, they are one and the same. their connection with the world around them allows them to use their souls to bend reality. When firing a focused shot from the storm bow a Kyudo master may choose to fire the arrow as if they were firing from a previous arrow they had shot from. Using this ability requires a full round action and must still have line of sight towards their intended object. When firing the arrow from the storm bow, the arrow immediately disappears in a light of soul energy, appearing from a chosen arrow that was shot from a focused bow attack. This attack must be done withing 1+wisdom modifier amount of rounds after the original arrow was fired.

    Archers prowess
    Starting at level 7 a Kyudo master has become so attuned with bows that they now automatically gain weapon focus with all bow like weapons. As well as learning how to fire to targets in close proximity, not triggering attacks of opportunity while firing their bow.

    The Dragon's Strike
    At level 8 a Kyudo master has learned to turn their souls energy into a divine strike. By preparing a focused arrow shot, the Kyudo master may unleash their inner essence into a destructive spiritual beam of energy. This beam is a total of 15ft wide and 40ft lon, the beginning of the beam starts directly in front of the Kyudo master and will continue to move forward at a pace of 10ft a round, continuing to grow from its origin starting location until it has reached its full size 4 rounds later.
    If a living creature were to be caught within the area of the beam as it passes through then they will take 2d6 force damage for every 5ft square they are on or adjacent to that is within the beam. The beam continues forward for a number of rounds equal to their level +wisdom modifier or until dispelled by the Kyudo master.
    A Kyudo master may only ever have one dragon strike active at a time and may not access any Focus abilities while the Dragon strike is active.

    Sound of the arrow
    Starting at level 9, While preparing the Eye of the arrow ability, a Kyudo master may now hear from the arrow as well as see.

    Focus, no illusions
    After focusing for the day a Kyudo master may further focus their mind and body on their bow. While taking a standard action to focus themselves their mind becomes clear, visioning the truth of their suroundings. This granting them the ability to reroll any enchantment or illusion effect that they may see or are currently under the effect of. The next round that they fire their storm bow they gain a +4 attack bonus and deal an additional +2d8 damage with their bow. All bow attacks are considered focused shots for this round. As well as from now on, when using the Storm bow and after focusing for the day, the storm bow deals 2d8 damage instead of 1d10.

    Improved Scattering arrow
    Starting at level 11 whenever a Kyudo master uses their scattering arrow ability, they may choose to do it from any focused arrow shot from within the last 1+wisdom modifier minutes. As well as the bow shot may benefit from a full round attack, as long as a single arrow is fired at a time.

    Soul of the arrow
    Starting at level 13, While preparing the Eye of the arrow ability, a Kyudo master gains blind sense equal a 30ft radius from the point of impact.

    focus(spiritual)

As well as all weapons wielded by the Kyudo master gain the ghost touch ability.

    greater Scattering arrow
    Starting at level 16, Whenever a Kyudo master uses their scattering arrow ability they may choose to do it from any focused arrow shot from within the last 1+wisdom modifier hours. As well as the bow shot may benefit from the many shot feat.

    The Dragon's Soul
    Mastery of the dragon's strike has given the Kyudo master the ability to further empower the abilities of their ability. Whenever they use their dragon strike ability, a living target now takes 3d6 force damage for every 5ft square adjacent to them. As well as their attack is no longer bound by physical objects barring them. the beam attack continuing forward even if it hits a physical barrier, as long as the ability still has duration.

    Focus(soul)
    After a lifetime of contemplation and practice a Kyudo master has mastered the art of focusing on not only the world around them, but also on themselves. After focusing for the day a Kyudo master may further focus as a full round action.

    This is a class based off of the video game character Hanzo from Blizzards: Overwatch. I have made a number of the characters into dnd 3.5 form, basing them mostly off of team work and tactical use on a battlefield.

    I just realized this is for 3.5! lol. My brain has been locked into 5e and I was skimming over the class. It's funny, I was thinking to myself that the ability descriptions sounded more like 3.5 than 5e. Now I know why. lol

    I can agree with that, after looking over once more i decided to change it to a 1d10 as well as make it go to a 2d8 about half way through progression. Making the damage come up after doing the focus for a day.
