    Default Re: [3.5/PF] GitP Regulars as Vestiges Type II

    Khadgar, Master of the House
    Vestige Level: 3rd
    Binding DC: 20

    Legend: Khadgar was once a powerful nobleman who liked to keep his dealings in order. He was very precise when it came to his work and expected his home to be the same, or risk his displeasure. His servants all wore uniforms that had to be pressed and neat and his home had to be kept so as well. During a daily inspection of his house, he noticed that he didn't recognize one of his servants. This was unusual by itself as his thorough nature kept him up to date on everyone who worked for him. Upon questioning, it turned out that the "new servant" was, in fact, a servant of Asmodeus, who had heard of Khadgar's precision in all things and had decided to test him to see if he would make a worthy lieutenant. To sweeten the deal, Asmodeus gave Khadgar a bit of his dark power. However, Khadgar refused, stating that he was no one's servant and that Asmodeus had interfered with the running of his house. Asmodeus, to his displeasure, discovered that the power he had given Khadgar had taken root in someone who was almost a devil himself and would not return. To prevent such a being becoming a full devil and threatening his reign, Asmodeus banished Khadgar to realms uncharted, never to threaten him.

    Manifestation: Khadgar himself does not appear, as you do not have an appointment. Instead, the image of an incorporeal maid appears to relay your request to her master.

    Sign: No matter what you are wearing, minor cosmetic changes appear to make it always seems to look reminiscent of either a maid or butler uniform.

    Influence: You always stand straight and at attention. Every movement is measured and precise, with no wasted movements.

    Special Requirements: Khadgar refuses to answer unless you make your request precisely on the hour.

    Granted Abilities:
    Dark Gift of Asmodeus (Su): Add half your binder to your warlock levels to determine the level of your Eldritch Blast. If you have no levels in warlock, you are treated as a warlock of half your binder level for the purpose of determining your eldritch blast power.

    Quiet in the Ranks (Su): You can unleash a rebuke that stuns all opponents in a 20' burst centered on yourself. All enemies in the area must make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 your effective binder level + your Charisma modifier) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds. You can use this ability once every 5 rounds.

    Of All He Surveys (Ex): Due to his forceful and commanding nature, Khadgar bestows a bonus on Diplomacy, Intimidate, and Sense Motive checks equal to half your effective binder level.

    Dark Servant: While Khadgar is bound, you attract the service of a supernatural servant. This servant takes the appearance of a creature of your race, dressed in a maid or butler outfit. It otherwise functions as an unseen servant except that it can move up to 10 times your effective binder level in weight.

    Aura of Authority (Sp): It is difficult for people to show aggression towards you. This functions as the sanctuary spell except as noted. Whenever someone tries to make a hostile action toward you (an attack, a hostile spell, etc.) they must make a Will save (DC 11 + your Charisma modifier) or fail to act. This effect is always active and does not deactivate if you attack.

    Improved Bind Vestige: Anyone with the Improved Bind Vestige feat can bind Khadgar. You gain the ability Of All He Surveys while Khadgar is bound. If you have Practiced Binder, you also gain the Dark Servant ability.

    the Aura needs to be renamed, too. It doesn't function like an aura, does it?
    Whoops, that aura was supposed to be an "each round" kind of thing. Also, the morale bonus is based on how much damage you do, so you could theoretically keep increasing it if you keep dealing higher amounts of damage (which applies to all of your abilities, since they are damage rolls also). 'Come Here, My Pet' allows you to kite a target into your ice aura since the compulsion only ends during the turn after they are next to you. If you move before then, they have to keep moving also. Phrased the wording of each to make them clearer.
