Making a Dementia Summoner

In the earlier levels a Dementia Summoner functuions as a moderate combatant, gaining strength for the oncoming battle within.Young Dementia Summoners often seek out a more advanced Dementia Summoner's tutilage.Once the Demmentia Summoner gains the power to manifest his nightmares into reality, they then use this ability to augment the combat power of himself and his allies by calling nightmares into combat. Demnetia Summoners can get along well with any of the primary classes, alothough they often have a distaste for the over preachy Clerics and Paladins. .

Abilities: Wisdom is the most important ability for the Dementia Summoner,as it dictates how difficult it is to entrap creatures in their dementia space.Charisma is likewise an important ability because it determines how many nightmares he can maintain in reality at a time.Dexterity and Strength are also crucial in the early levels so that they can hold their own in combat..

Races: Of the common races, humans are the most likly to begin the inward journy through the depths of their fear. Gnomes with a slightly more malicious bent also tend to walk the fine line between reality and insanity to give there jokes a more terrifying twist. Elves are so long lived that they often work out any type of fear that they may have, and Dwarven dementia summoners are almost unheard of. .

Alignment: <-Dementia Summoners don't favor good over evil as the lines between right and wrong often blend into shades of moral grey.The rigors of constantly confronting ones deepest nightmares often cause insanity of the weak minded making it so that those who have forgone law completely can walk this path. Alighnment:any nonlawful .

[edit] Class Features

All of the following are class features of the Dementia Summoner.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Dementia Summoner begins play proficient with all Simple Weaponsand all Light Armor but not shields.

<-extraordinary class feature-> (Ex): <-class feature game rule information->

Enter Dementia Space (Sp): At Second level, a Dementia Summoner has begun to find the road to his nightmares,and now has the ability to enter his Dementioa Space. A Dementia Summoner's Dementia Space functions as a demiplane.A Dementia Summoners Dementia space can look like anything he desires.He choses the geography, gravity,presence of water,ect... A Dementia summoner cannot create life through the creation of his Dementia Space,he is limited to just soil and rock,likewise,he cannot create the dementia space out of any precious metals. A Dementia Summoners Dementia Space is unreachable by all means by anyone other than the Dementia Summoner who it belongs to except by the use of the Dementia Guest ability,or the Wish spell.Dementia Space's Atmosphere is subjective,it will automatically ajust on a creature to creature and person to person basis, meanig that if a shark were to be brought to dementia space,it would not die from a lack of water to pass through its gills the shark may or may not be able to move however based on the presence of water.This is were the Dementia summoner will eventually be able to store his nightmares.

__________________________________________________ _

This is my first shot at creating a class and is copied and pasted from a engine so thats why most of it is blank but I would like it if you could explain how to set things up for future reference.

interesting concept. but before people are going to read it, they are going to want to be able to read it. format it; make it look nice. right now it is not very easily read or pretty to look at. go to fax celestis' homebrew guide stickied to the top of the homebrew forum and learn how to format and use tables and stuff. you'll get a lot more people to look at it.

Needs a special ability at first level. Otherwise, in combat, it is a rogue without sneak attack and Will instead of Reflex for its good save... not very fun to play.

And seconded about the formatting.
