Cheese Whiz

Arcane Tradition
Comments from the Finger: I played one of these back in the 3.5 days, but I was killed by a bleu dragon. It's wasn't a gouda day for anyone.

School of Tyromancy

Not all wizards find the right specialization within the conventional schools of magic, and instead turn to even more focused areas of expertise, like the School of Tyromancy. A wizard of this school (often called a Cheese Whiz) specializes in a subsection of gastromancy that uses energy from Semielemental Plane of Cheese to power his magic. The very first Cheese Whiz, Lactose the Intolerable, learned of this magic shortly before his untimely death.

Sharp Cheddar
Starting when you choose this tradition at 2nd level, when you deal damage with a cantrip, you can deal additional slashing damage equal to your Intelligence modifier.
     Additionally, your spells adopt a purely cosmetic cheese theme. For example, mage hand appears to be formed from spectral swiss and shield manifests as a wheel of cheese to deflect blows.

Holy Swiss
Swiss cheese has the deepest divine connection amongst cheeses, for it is holy. At 6th level, by exploiting this connection as a bonus action, you can restore a number of hit points equal to twice your wizard level + your Intelligence modifier. After using this ability, you must complete a long rest before using it again.

Right Brie-hind You
At 10th level, you can use your action to teleport up to 60 feet to a space adjacent to a creature you can see.

Legen-dairy Touch
Starting at 14th level, can turn solid objects into cheese with a touch. If you touch a nonmagical object, a 10-foot cube of it becomes a type of cheese of your choice. If you touch a creature, it is affected by a variant of the spell flesh to stone that instead transforms the target into cheese. After using this ability, you must complete a long rest before using it again.

    1. That's just not the right attitude. You should fondue, not fondont.

    2. That's right, you need a Gouda Mindset to play a class like this.

    3. But, you know, it might not be for everyone. If it's nacho thing, it's nacho thing.

  2. I was hoping for more consistent features like with the Cluckromancer. Where is the fun with cheese without giant mouse traps and wheel-o-cheese bowling?

    1. No, see, that's what Sharp Cheddar lets you do! Now, wheever you cast flaming Sphere, its a huger rolling ball of Saganaki!

    2. Look, honest answer here: on this one, puns>feature types. I tried by best to make them interesting, but I wasn't getting hung up trying to give it a single type of mechanical focus. It bounces around a lot like a sorcerer, really.

    3. Actually, as far as the Holy Swiss, I was expecting the ability to summon a cheese wheel which heals with each bite, like a Lay on Hands in consumable form. Make you a little less random Wizard, slightly more healing cook.

  3. I assume in Legen-dairy touch, the second part should say "if you touch a creature..."

    That being said, this is absolutely PERFECT for an all mage campaign my group has been joking about - also includes the sucromancer (aka candymancer) and the nec-romancer.

    1. No, the Nec-romancer can stay safely hidden away in his weird mausoleum. Now, the Neck-romancer would be a great name for a wizard school that turned you into a vampire.

  4. Thanks for making this... I don't have a cheese pun but it's wonderful.

  5. Alright time to get real, Barberarian(Barbarian using giant scissors to cut his foes and his hair), Bardbarian(musical savage beating everyone down with his huge Axe), and Librarian(literally what it sounds).

    1. (These puns are terrible/incredible) I've never considered a barberbarian, but I can already see the features: 'Close Shave', 'Bad Hair Day', 'Luxurious Locks', etc

    2. That's it. I'm now dedicating a portion of our collective resources to an update of sub-classes, monsters, and magic items dedicated solely to awful puns.

      I blame all of you.

    3. Female only variant of the Bardbarian, she goes into a Minstrel Rage.
