I love this, this is really well done. Did you change the name to avoid copyright?
Anyways, on conscious awakening, how do you end being awakened? Is it an action, a bonus action? Also, I could be wrong but the abilities that the specializations give to heal hitpoints with Hod points is cool at early levels, but becomes close to useless at later levels because you can at max heal yourself for 7 hp or do 7 extra damage, while paladins get that pool of healing, so maybe base it off of that instead. The best that will do is stabilize the cleric, but they shouldn't be falling anyways, and since there's a 50/50 chance of being a human you could get magic initiate and get spare the dying if you don't have a cleric.
You do already have cure wounds as a spell, so maybe you can instead spend the points to give temporary hitpoints, but I don't know if that would be better.
For the extra damage, maybe instead of doing straight up extra damage, you can do other combative effects. However, why not just give...See more

Thanks for the feedback. It's nice to see someone interested in your work.
Yes i changed the names to avoid copyright, the original source is the Claymore manga.
Consious awakening uses an action just like the paladin transformation at 20th level.
You gain the Hod benefits when you spend points to cast a spell too, you can't use the regen on other but can cast cure wounds on the cleric and regain 3hp at the same time. About the later levels, don't underestimate it, it's not designed to heal you up everything but can keep you alive when mixed with witch's eyes.

Yes, I'm watching the anime currently.
But what I was asking is, do you have to make the saving throws at the end of Conscious Awakening or do you manually end it, if so how? Are you able to end it with a bonus action? An action?
And I don't mean that it should be able to heal you up to full, but the use of your Hod points on much more powerful abilities basically makes the ability to heal yourself maybe 2 points of health becomes pretty worthless because once you start getting 50 to 100 health, 2 hp is pretty insignificant. I think maybe at a later level, you can tag on "You can now use Hod points to regain 5 times the amount of health per Hod point"
And I still think the level 1 Judge ability should be changed to a fighting style, cause rangers even get that even though they primarily use bows

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
