This isn't completely ready yet (I still need to make spells and a couple of special abilities and right now I am completely out of ideas. I posted this here for comments and ideas. Have a look. Ill be doing spells when I figure out proper ones.
I hope you can make something out of those tables, but I didn't know any other proper way to transfer them form openoffice to this forum.
I was thinking the spellcasting could be mainly offensive.

Elementalist


The Elementalist is much like the druid exepct that The Elementalist draws her power for the elemental planes instead of nature. Elementalists aling themselves with one of the four classical elements and many spend time in the elemental planes they specialize in. They learn to deal with the residents of the elemental planes and have substantial knowledge of the elemental. Some Elementalist form organizations to guard portals to the elemental planes in order to prevent access to people with harmful intent.
Adventure
One can learn and experience only so much in the halls of a library and many are driven to adventure to find out more about the elemental planes. Many adventure to seek out threats against the elemental planes. And some are sent out to gather information by elementalist sects.
Characteristics
Elementalists cast spells much like clerics and druids, but draw power from the elemental instead.
Elementalists specialize in one element and have the ability to transform into a elemental of that type. The pinnacle of their power is in the form of an Greater Elemental where they are truly fearsome opponents. They harness the power of the elemental in many ways and they can imbue their attacks with elemental damage.
Alingment
Elementalists can be of any alingment though evil elementalist are rarer that good or neutral ones.
Evil elementalists often just harness the elemental power without actually protecting it. The same is sometimes true for neutral elementalists
Religion
Elementalists revere if not worship the elemental planes and many worship gods who represent particular elements.
Role
An elemetalists can use offensive and harmful spells on the enemies. She can also summon elementals and other beings to help the characters. One of her best abilities however is shapechanging. This way the Elementalist becomes a formidable physical combatant

Game rule information
Elementalists have the following game statistics
Abilities
Charisma determines how powerful spell an elementalist can cast and how hard those spells are to resist. To cast a spell an elementalist must have a charisma score of 10 + the spell's level. An elementalist gets bonus spells based on charisma. The DC of a saving throw against an elementalist spell is 10 + the spells level + the elementalists charisma modifier
Alingment: Any

Hit Die: D8

Elemental Pact
You aling youself with one of the elements and learn to turn into an elemental
At second level you get Elemental Pact which goes as follows.
At 2th level, an Elementalist gains the ability to turn herself into any elemental found in her pact for the level she is in and back again once per day. Her options for new forms include all elemental forms she has. This ability functions like the alternate form special ability, except as noted here. The effect lasts for 1 hour per elementalist level, or until she changes back. Changing form (to elemental or back) is a standard action and doesnít provoke an attack of opportunity.

Any gear worn or carried by the elementalitt melds into the new form and becomes nonfunctional. When the druid reverts to her true form, any objects previously melded into the new form reappear in the same location on her body that they previously occupied and are once again functional. Any new items worn in the assumed form fall off and land at the druid's feet

You need to spellcheck and wordsmith it. It is rather hard to understand.

Look at the top of this forum for the homebrew tables, and build a class table, so the progression of the class can be understood.

In the description of the abilities, include the level you get them.

I'm a bit concerned about being able to shapeshift into elementals at low levels.

Building a spellcasting class with a brand new spell list is ... often overkill. Note which spells are new, and which ones are taken from other classes.

The online d20 srd might be of use. Instead of saying "like the druid", go there, get the srd text, and rewrite it to be the same form for your class.

You have a handful of dead levels.

Frog Dragon
2008-09-24, 11:28 PM
Yeah. I'm aware of my dead lvls (three to be precise, but I have a hard time thinking anything new). And the tables? Well I couldn't make a table into this forum and neither I could copy the entire table form open office. Yeah I'll clear the tables once i find out how to do it. The elementals. Well I tried to balance it some even before i put it here. (It first had the ability to go elder elemental, but I kicked that figuring it was way too powerful.)
I don't think the elemental shapeshifting is that bad. Small elementals aren't that powerful.
And the spells hokey:

Elementalist spells.

There is a guide to homebrewing stickied at the top of this forum. In it it gives you the exact method to make tables in this forum.

I find that polymorph powers (ie, get the powers of creature X) are fraught with balance problems. It might be far easier to keep balance if you detailed the powers you gained explicitly. But that is just my opinion.

At the very least, include a link to the creature you can polymorph into so others don't have to search it out.

Huge and larger creatures cannot be pulled. They are simply too big.

When in the area of effect you must succeed on a dc 10+ spells lvl + caster lvl strength check every turn or be sucked 10 feet towards the center of the spell with no ability to move. if you succeed by 4 or less you are sucked but you can still move normally. If you succeed by 5 or more you ingore the effects of the air hole for that round alltogether. You get a +4 bonus to the check if you are large and -4 for each size category you are below medium size. incorporeal creatures cannot be pulled as they don't have a body that could be affected. if you're adjacent to the hole you take 1d6 damage every round.

Detect Magic
Divination
Level: Brd 0, Clr 0, Drd 0, Sor/Wiz 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 60 ft.
Area: Cone-shaped emanation
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 min./level (D)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

You detect magical auras. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area or subject.
1st Round

Presence or absence of magical auras.
2nd Round

Number of different magical auras and the power of the most potent aura.
3rd Round

The strength and location of each aura. If the items or creatures bearing the auras are in line of sight, you can make Spellcraft skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura; DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + half caster level for a nonspell effect.)

Magical areas, multiple types of magic, or strong local magical emanations may distort or conceal weaker auras.
Aura Strength
Spell or Object Aura Power
................................................Fa int.............Moderate........Strong....Overwhel ming
Functioning spell (spell level)..3rd or lower.....4th-6t...........7th-9th..........10th+ (deity-level)
Magic item (caster level).........5th or lower.......6th-11th....12th-20th..... 21st+ (artifact)

An auraís power depends on a spellís functioning spell level or an itemís caster level. If an aura falls into more than one category, detect magic indicates the stronger of the two.


A magical aura lingers after its original source dissipates (in the case of a spell) or is destroyed (in the case of a magic item). If detect magic is cast and directed at such a location, the spell indicates an aura strength of dim (even weaker than ae faint aura). How long the aura lingers at this dim level depends on its original power:

Original Strength Duration of Lingering Aura
Faint..........................1d6 rounds
Moderate..................1d6 minutes
Strong......................1d6◊10 minutes
Overwhelming...........1d6 days


Outsiders and elementals are not magical in themselves, but if they are summoned, the conjuration spell registers.

Each round, you can turn to detect magic in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.

Detect magic can be made permanent with a permanency spell.


Detect Planar presence
Divination
Level: Brd 0, Clr 0, Drd 0, Sor/Wiz 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 60 ft.
Area: cone-shaped emanation
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 min./level (D)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

You detect planar auras. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area or subject.
1st Round

Presence or absence of planar auras.
2nd Round

Number of different Planar auras and the power of the most potent aura.
3rd Round

The strength and location of each aura. If creatures bearing the auras are within a 120 foot radius, you can make knowledge planes skill checks to determine the subtype involved in each. The DC is 15 + half the creatures HD

Somehow alinged areas, multiple types of presences, or strong local emanations may distort or conceal weaker auras.
Aura Strength
creature or Object Aura Power

A plaanr aura lingers after its original source is no longer there If detect planar presence is cast and directed at such a location, the spell indicates an aura strength of dim (even weaker than a faint aura). How long the aura lingers at this dim level depends on its original power:

Original Strength Duration of Lingering Aura
Faint..........................1d3 rounds
Moderate..................1d2 minutes
Strong......................1d2 hours
Overwhelming...........1d2 days

Each round, you can turn to detect magic in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 2 feet of stone, 3 inches of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 6 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.

A detect planar presence spell can be made permanent with a permanency spell

Nitpick: Please use proper roman numerals for the Elemental Pacts. They should be as follows:

Elemental Pact I
Elemental Pact II
Elemental Pact III
Elemental Pact IV
Elemental Pact V
Elemental Pact VI
