Circle of Stone Lords

Druid Circle

Granted power by the primal spirits of the earth itself, the Circle of Stone Lords is made up of druids both in the highest mountains and the lowest caverns. Many of the circle’s most prominent members are dwarven ancients who have left dwarven civilization behind and have entered into the caverns beneath their homes to seek out communion with the earth.

Words of Stone

When you choose this circle at 2nd level, you gain the ability to speak, read, and write Terran.

Stone Form

When you choose this circle at 2nd level you gain the ability to use Wild Shape to adopt a stone form resembling a rough cut animated statue of yourself. You may use a bonus action on your turn and expend a use of your Wild Shape to gain resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. While in stone form, you have a burrow speed equal to your speed.

You can maintain your stone form for a number of minutes equal to half your druid level (rounded down). You then revert to your normal form unless you expend another use of Wild Shape. You can revert to your normal form earlier by using a bonus action on your turn. This ability may be combined with other applications of Wild Shape, but may not be combined with any beast shape that has a flying or swimming speed.

Wisdom of Stone

Starting at 6th level, you gain tremorsense out to 30 ft. You have advantage on saving throws against being poisoned,paralyzed, petrified, and unconscious.

Stone Guardian

Starting at 10th level, you may animate a nearby stone and rock into a stone guardian. You may spend an action to create the guardian, which has the same statistics as a Galeb Duhr (MM pg 139), except that it has Intelligence 1 and Charisma 1, it can’t be charmed or frightened, and it lacks the Animate Boulders ability. The stone guardian remains animated as long as you maintain concentration, for a number of minutes up to your Constitution modifier (minimum 1). It obeys any verbal commands that you issue to it (no action required). If you don’t issue any commands to it, the guardian defends itself from hostile creatures, but otherwise takes no action. You can’t use this feature again until you finish a short or long rest.

Strength of Stone

Starting at 14th level, when you adopt stone form your size increases by one degree (for example, from Medium to Large). While in stone form you double your damage dice on Strength-based weapon attacks and make Strength checks and Strength saving throws with advantage.
