While any spellcaster can tap the potential coursing through ley lines, the tradition of geomancy teaches the art of becoming like a ley line and bonding with the great flow of power. Geomancy is sometimes looked down on by adherents of traditions that focus on individual magic schools because it eschews specialization in favor of molding any form of magic through the focused power of ley lines.

Geomancers have an increased facility for tapping into any ley line, but they also learn to bind themselves to a specific ley line. While other spellcasters must be within a ley line’s area of influence to use it, the geomancer becomes a tributary of his or her chosen river of power, capable of siphoning its power anywhere.

Except as noted below, geomancers function as wizards and use the wizard spell list.

Ley Line Savant

Beginning when you select this tradition at 2nd level, the gold and time you must spend to copy a ley line spell into your spellbook is halved.

When you gain a level, one of the two spells you learn for gaining a level can be a ley line magic spell, even if you’ve never encountered it before.

Additionally, you can sense the presence of ley lines within 1 mile. As an action, you can discern the intensity of the nearest ley line and the direction and distance to it.

Channel Ley Line

Starting at 2nd level, you learn to tap the power of ley lines to augment your spellcasting, as described under “Using Ley Lines.”

Additionally, when you finish a short or long rest within 1 mile of a weak ley line, you can bind yourself to that ley line. You can be bound to only one ley line at a time. If you later bind yourself to a second ley line, you lose your connection to the previous one.

While you are bound to a ley line, you can channel the power of the line into your spellcasting from any distance, as long as you are on the same plane as the ley line. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Intelligence modifier (a minimum of once). You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Ley Line Manipulation

Beginning at 6th level, when you augment your magic with power from a ley line, you can reroll the effect of an unlocked ley line or the result of a backlash. You must use the rerolled result. After rerolling, you can’t use a reaction until the end of your next turn.

Ley Line Adept

Starting at 10th level, you can bind yourself to weak or strong ley lines with your Channel Ley Line feature.

In addition, you add your proficiency bonus to the ability check when tapping a ley line for power.

Ley Line Mastery

At 14th level, you can bind yourself to weak, strong, or titanic ley lines with your Channel Ley Line feature, and you have advantage on the ability check to tap the ley line.

As an action, you can lock or unlock a ley line within 30 feet of you. When you lock a ley line, choose one of its effects; the ley line will always have that effect for you while it remains locked. Once you use this feature to lock or unlock a ley line, you can’t do so again until you finish a number of long rests depending on the intensity of the line: one for a weak ley line, two for strong, and three for titanic.
