    Default The Necromancer [PF] because trying to name it something else is futile.

    To make this 3.5, simply change the skills to "x4 at first level" and change Perception into Listen/Spot.



    The following class is
    Tier: Cipher.
    (In other words, to hell with balance as you know it)

    The Necromancer

    “Lo!" cried the demon. "I am here! What dost thou seek of me? Why dost thou disturb my repose? Smite me no more with that dread rod!" He looked at Cabal. "Where's your dread rod?"
    "I left it at home," replied Cabal. "Didn't think I really needed it."
    "You can't summon me without a dread rod!" said Lucifuge, appalled.
    "You're here, aren't you?"
    "Well, yes, but under false pretences. You haven't got a goatskin or two vervain crowns or two candles of virgin wax made by a virgin girl and duly blessed. Have you got the stone called Ematille?"
    "I don't even know what Ematille is."
    Neither did the demon. He dropped the subject and moved on. "Four nails from the coffin of a dead child?"
    "Don't be fatuous."
    "Half a bottle of brandy?"
    "I don't drink brandy."
    "It's not for you."
    "I have a hip flask," said Cabal, and threw it to him. The demon caught it and took a dram.
    "Cheers," said Lucifuge, and threw it back. They regarded each other for a long moment. "This really is a shambles," the demon added finally. "What did you summon me for, anyway?”
    ― Jonathan L. Howard, The Necromancer



    Role:
    While many necromancers are recluses, living on the edge of civilization, this is not true for all of them. Necromancers are forced to learn survival tricks from a young age. Many are killed off early in life due to superstitions surrounding them. Many of these superstitions are true however. The common necromancer yearns to fit in with normal society, to find love and to be loved. These are not people who chose to seek dark powers, they are chosen by fate to be born the way they are. Its easy for them to give in to the discrimination and become evil. But most simply hide from themselves. Necromancers are blessed with unique powers that make them excellent controllers and even damage dealers on par with any spellcaster.

    Alignment:
    Any, usually Chaotic.

    Starting Wealth:
    3d6 × 10 gp (average 105gp.) In addition, each character begins play with an outfit worth 10 gp or less.

    Class Features

    Weapons and armor:
    The Necromancer is proficient with light armors and simple weapons.

    Witchborn (Ex)
    The Necromancer must be born of a Witch. The exact premises of what qualifies as "a witch" are up to your GM. But generally, any character who's mother (or father) was a literally a Witch qualify, as do any Changeling characters, since Hags count.
    At first level, the Necromancer gains the ability to see ethereal creatures, though they appear like any other character which can be confusing. As a minor action, the ethereal creature can actively avoid detection as if by the Invisibility spell.
    Every three class levels the Necromancer's skin gets tougher, and the Necromancer gains Natural Armor +2 until the Necromancer has a +15 bonus at 18th level, when they get an extra +1 in celebration of completing the metamorphosis. The levels are as follows: 1,3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18.
    To someone who does not have this natural armor, the Necromancer's skin feels hard and smooth, like marble, or clean even bone. But to other Necromancers of similar level they feel quite normal.


    Domains (Sp)
    At first level, a Necromancer chooses two Domains of power which fuel the Necromancer's power.
    The Necromancer chooses two of the following:
    Chaos, Lust, Darkness, Death, Destruction, Evil, Fire, Memory, Revolution, Curse, Madness, Repose, Void, Ice, and Serpent.
    They can be found here. Simply replace references to wisdom with charisma and cleric with necromancer.
    If a full domain is listed, she also choose one of the Subdomains under it.
    The Necromancer gains one extra domain at 10th level, and 20th level.
    The Necromancer gains the Granted Powers of the chosen domains, and can cast the domain's granted spells spontaneously when she reaches the appropriate level.
    Each spell costs its spell level (3 for a 3rd level spell) to use from a pool of points the Necromancer possesses equal to her class levels x charisma score. if her charisma score is ten or less, she cannot cast these spells.
    This casting is considered Spell-Like and never need material components less then 5gp in value.
    Recovering these spell points can be done in a few ways:
    A ritual in which you sacrifice something pure, taking 5 rounds to perform.
    Example pure things, your DM is the final say in what counts as pure in your game:
    • Gold equal to your level x100
    • Gems of value equal to your level x10
    • Virgins, clearly.
    • Small adorable animals.

    8 hours of rest, as normal for other spellcasters.
    Sleeping with a Sacred Something of 5th level or higher for 20minutes while she performs Restorative Act.
    A Necromancer can add to her available by following the normal rules for custom spell creation, she otherwise does not possess a spell list.


    Path
    Starting at first level and every level indicated on the table, the Necromancer gains a Path ability. These abilities are taken from one of three paths. Unless otherwise noted, Path abilities are at will and a standard action, with DC saves 10+1/2 Necromancer level+Charisma, and a duration of 24 hours. Path abilities are Supernatural.
    Available abilities are as follows. The number at the side is the minimum level before it can be acquired as well as the Strain cost.
    At 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th, and 19th levels you can replace one Path you've selected and replace it with a new one you can choose.

    Formation
    Special: Formation effects exert dominance over organic matter, primarily that of bones. Naturally, creatures that do not have bones are immune to effects that target their nonexistent skeletal system.
    These spells do not directly effect undead creatures themselves, but go straight to the bones. As such, any effect requiring a Fortitude save cannot be ignored if the creature would normally be immune to fortitude saves. Instead, they target such creature's will saves.

    You take control of your own bones, you gain speed equal to your charisma modifier x5, and gain a partial action each round. However you take an additional 1d4 damage per hit you take due to the dangerous nature of this control.
    Overstrain: extra 1 strain, add an extra five feet per extra point of strain. Every 2 extra strain you take you get a levitation effect for 1ft per total strain spent (thus ignoring effects such as grease, hover over water, ice, ect.
    For an extra 10 points of strain, your speed is changed to Fly speed (perfect)

    Target: One living creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude DC= 10+1/2 class levels + charisma modifier negates
    Power/Spell Resistance: Yes
    With decerebrate, you selectively remove a portion of the subject’s brain stem. The creature loses all cerebral function, vision, hearing, and other sensory abilities, and all voluntary motor activity. The subject becomes limp and unresponsive. Without extreme measures, such as greater restoration or some other suitable effect of 7th level or higher, the creature perishes in 1d4 days.
    Repulsion:
    Creatures, as long as their anatomy consists of bone, simply cannot approach within Charisma mod x10 /2 ft of you. No save, Spell/Power resistance applies. lasts Charisma mod = rounds.
    Overstrain: For every 2 additional Strain, Add 5 for overcoming Resistances. For every 1, add five feet range.

    Osteoprosthetics:
    You can attach working bone replicas of a subjects limbs somewhere onto their body, or replacing a missing limb. The bone attaches itself to the subjects nervous system and is considered living bone. Arm has hardness 15, and 60hp,
    Overstrain: For an additional two, the limb can be made with natural weapons such as Claws appropriate for the size. For an extra two on top of that, it can be made a size larger. For five extra points of overstrain, you can create a working eye. Strategic use of Eye Osteoprosthetics grant 360 vision. For another extra two, the eye can be made with Low light vision, for another five, the eye can be made with Darkvision.
    Osteotransmutation:
    You transform Wood, Metal, Stone, or Flesh into Bone. Or bone into the above. This can potentially change a victim of petrification back to normal, Or a victim into a statue of Bone which you can control with other Osteokinetic abilities. Unlike most Osteokinetic abilities, this is a will save. DC= 10+1/2 class levels + charisma modifier. No effect on a succeeded save.

    Osteotranslocation:
    Your control over bone matter is so fine, You can propel It, and what it may be attached to (in the case of living bone) Across space. This is in effect a Teleportation spell used as a standard action, with Class levels as caster level, and Spell level Nine.
    You can use a move equivalent action with Osteotranslocation to move a number of creatures equal to your half your HD Cha mod x10 ft of teleportation with no save. This can't effect creatures of equal or higher HD then yourself. Target location must be visible.
    If you move yourself or a willing target, this can function as the Teleport without Error spell, however every participant takes nonlethal damage equal to their total HP -1, leaving them barely conscious and are Nauseated for 1d4 rounds. Creatures immune to critical hits and/or nonlethal damage are immune to the side effects of teleporting.

    Detonate Bone:
    You cause bone to detonate. It deals 1d8 damage per size category larger then fine it is, + Cha mod = die. (+5 cha mod detonating a Medium size skeleton frame or singular chunk of bone would deal nine d8 damage) To all within Cha mod x5 ft from the origin (Reflex save for half) If used on a living creatures skeletal system, they are instantly slain if they have less HD then your own. If they have more equal, detonation does not occur. They instead take half the usual detonation damage and constitution damage equal to half your HD as their bones are fractured, splintered, and generally very damaged, they are considered Nauseated, and knocked prone until they are healed of the constitution damage.
    If they have up to 5 more HD then you do, this deals half the usual detonation damage, and constitution damage equal to one fourth their HD, and they are considered to be under the effects of a Slow spell.
    If they have 6 or more HD then you do, up to 10, this only causes hairline fractures to riddle their skeletal structure and they are considered sickened. 11 or more HD and this does nothing. Detonate Bone can not be used on a target more then once. Needless to say, if they have equal or more HD, the detonation is contained and there is no area damage around them.
    Overstrain: for each additional point of strain, you add 1d12 damage.
    By spending ten points of overstrain, you can detonate yourself to deal 1d12 damage per HD you have, + a number of d12s equal to your charisma score. You cannot be resurrected with anything less then a Wish or Miracle spell.




    Affliction
    Special: Afflictions are raw manifestations of ill will, hatred, loathing, or sorrow.
    If you channel those emotions in with your Afflictions, they gain +2 DC, and you can add overstrain equal two twice your class levels instead of half. To channel these emotions, you must actually possess them against the target. If the GM feels the target has sufficiently wronged you, he can inform you that it has the condition: Cursemarked.
    Afflictions, unless otherwise specified, cannot be used on a target more then once per day, even if it failed to take hold.
    An Affliction is automatically replaced by its more powerful version when it becomes available.

    Conjuration
    Special: At the appropriate levels, for appropriate abilities, a Conjuration automatically upgrades to its most powerful form you can take for your level, but you can still cast it as an earlier stage if you wish.
    Summon effects last for a number of rounds equal to your charisma modifier + 1/2 class levels.
    Raise effects last until they are killed. You can only control a number of Raised creatures until their combined HD equals twice your class levels. If it would exceed that, the Raised creature replaces the most damage raised creature you currently possess.

    Golem effects can only have one golem active at any one time.
    Conjuration Path is in the following post.

    Witchborn Noble (Ex):
    The witches blood that runs through the Necromancer is empowered. The Necromancer's heritage burns within her and the dark arts penetrate deeper to form a stronger connection as she grows in power.
    Every three class levels the Witchborn Noble possesses, she gains Fast Healing 2 to a maximum of Fast Healing 15 at level 18, when they get an extra +1 in celebration of completing the metamorphosis. The levels are as follows: 1,3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18. At level 20, this turns into Regeneration.
    In addition, she gains the Scent ability.
    Whats more, she gains the at will ability to change the way she looks. This functions similarly to Disguise Self, but as a Polymorph effect.

    Witchborn Royal (Ex):
    The Necromancer takes on her final transformation. The witches blood within her is in its own right a powerful magical artifact now.
    The Necromancer gains a Damage Reduction of 15/-.
    Her blood can be used to replace any material component and can lower XP costs by 25%, to do so she deals 1d4 points of damage to herself. If she uses this 4 times in a row, she takes 1 point of constitution damage.
    If her blood is spilled in large amounts (1/2hp), the blood can coat a single person into provide them with her 15 Regeneration. It can bring back the dead, but not if they've been dead for over 6 minutes.
    Whats more, she gains the ability to change her form at will. This functions like Alter Self.
