A man looks up at the sky and transforms into a giant eagle. As he soars high above the sandy dunes of the desert, his eyes seem to be aglow with the light of the sun itself. Basking in the rays and heat of the midday sun, he swiftly follows the footprints in the loose sands of the people that invaded the lands which he calls his home.
A kind faced gnome woman walks down the street, her blonde hair waving in the soft morning breeze. As the day’s first light hits her face, she smiles with the knowledge that today will be a wonderful day for her garden.
The hands of a halfling touch the back of their dwarven friend. A soft flash of light with the color of the setting sun glows in the eyes of the dwarf as their wounds are mended.
Children of the Sun
Druids of the circle of the sun carry the light of the sun itself within them. Druids of the sun believe that the sun is the source of all life as it is the sunlight which makes the plants grow, which in turn feed the creatures of the world. As a druid of the sun you may bring warmth, light and life wherever you go, or blind, scorch and burn whatever stands in your way.
Starting at 2nd level, you gain access to spells that harness the power of the sun. You learn the Light cantrip and at 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th level you gain access to the spells listed for that level in the Circle of the Sun Spells table.
Once you gain access to one of these spells, you always have it prepared, and it doesn’t count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn’t appear on the druid spell list, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.
|Cure Wounds, Shield of Faith
|Beacon of Hope, Daylight
|Arcane Eye, Wall of Fire
|Flame Strike, Mass Cure Wounds

Aspect of the Sun
Starting at 6th level, the power of the sun courses through you while you are transformed into a beast. While you are Wild Shaped, you have resistance to Radiant damage. Additionally, whenever a creature hits you with a melee attack while they are within 5ft., they take 2d4 Radiant damage.

All (hostile) creatures of your choice within the sphere have to make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save they take 6d6 Radiant damage. A creature that rolls a 1 on the save is also Blinded until the end of their next turn. On a successful save they take half damage. All allied creatures of your choice within the sphere regain 3d6 hit points. When you use this ability by expending a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 2d6, the healing by 1d6 and the the size of the sphere increases by 10ft.
