    Default Applemancer

    The Applemancer

    "Well, what's you're hungering for? Caramel apple? Apple pie? Apple fritter? Apple fries?" ~Applejack, Earth Pony Applemancer

    In all the stories, the Applemancer is the one in the background. The Applemancer is the one no one cares about. The Applemancer is the random farmer who gets killed to show how evil the villain is. The Applemancer is the true peasant's hero.

    Adventures: The only reason an Applemancer ever leaves home is to sell her apples in new markets.

    Characteristics: Applemancers are capable of the mystic arts of Applemancy, a forbidden magic once thought forgotten in ages past.

    Alignment: Applemancers tend towards respecting honesty, loyalty, and friendship. This leaves them leaning towards Law and Good, but there are plenty of Chaotic or Evil Applemancers in the world.

    Religion: Applemancers tend to worship the gods of nature, agriculture, weather, and the sun. Though, religion tends not to be a very important part of their lives.

    Background: One becomes an Applemancer when one feels the call of the apple. It is an ephemeral thing that few can understand, but when you hear it, you'll know.

    Races: Any race with strong farming tendencies or a reverance for nature can become an Applemancer. Races that predominantly live underground rarely feel the call of the apple.

    Other Classes: Applemancers tend to have trouble with classes that rely on deception and trickery, like the Rogue or Illusionist. They also usually feel that other spellcasters, wizards in particular, are arrogant and elitist. Otherwise, they have little trouble fitting in with a variety of classes.

    Role: The Applemancer fills primarily a support role with healing and secondary spellcasting.

    Adaptation: While highly unusual, it is possible to change the Applemancer to something that focuses on a different kind of fruit, like bananas or pineapples.

    Applemancers have the following game statistics.

    Applemancy (Su): An Applemancer can substitute an apple for any material component or arcane focus when casting Applemancer spells.

    Apple Sack (Su): An Applemancer is in possession of a magic sack that acts as a Bag of Holding. However, it can only ever hold apples. Drawing apples from the Apple Sack is a free action. The sack always weighs five pounds no matter how many apples are inside it, and it can hold a number of apples equal to the square of the Applemancer's level multiplied by her Wisdom score. Apples within the Apple Sack never rot and remain fresh and edible forever.

    Apple Sustenance (Ex): A level two Applemancer can subsist on a diet solely consisting of apples. She must eat at least at least 16 apples a day (if small) or 32 apples a day (if medium).

    Applemorphing (Sp): At level four, an Applemancer gains the ability to permanently transform any form of plant matter into an equal volume of apples. Fine sized objects and creatures turn into one apple. For each size category larger, multiply that number by eight. Creatures are entitled to a Fortitude save (DC10 + 1/2 level + Wisdom modifier) to negate this effect. Creatures immune to polymorphing are immune to this ability. At level ten, she can transform any non-living matter into apples. At level sixteen, she can transform any and all matter into apples. This ability is usable at will.

    Apple Crafting (Su): A thirteenth level Applemancer can substitute an apple for any gold cost required in crafting magic items. Items made with this ability are always either bright red or bright green and smell like apple pie.

    Advanced Applemancy (Su): At level ninteen, an Applemancer can substitute an apple for any XP component when casting Applemancy spells.

    Apple Transformation (Su): By level twenty, an Applemancer has become one with the apples and turns herself into a giant, human-shaped apple. Her type changes to Plant, and she keeps all subtypes. She gains DR10/slashing, Cold Resistance 20, and +4 Constitution.

    Magic Apples (Sp): Applemancers can Imbue apples with marvelous and mystical powers. These apples bestow their effects when consumed, similar to potions. An Applemancer can create a number of magic apples per day equal to 1/2 her level. The apples remain potent for a number of days equal to her Wisdom modifier. After that, they lose their magic. The Apple Sack does not prevent this loss of potency.
    Apple of Courage: Applies an apple bonus to attack rolls, damage rolls, and saving throws for a number of rounds equal to the Applemancer's caster level.
    Apple of Cure X Wounds: Functions as the Cleric spell of the same name using the Applemancer's caster level.
    Apple of Power: Applies an apple bonus to one ability score for a number of minutes equal to the Applemancer's caster level.
    Apple of (Lesser) Restoration: Functions as the Cleric spell of the same name using the Applemancer's caster level.
    Apple of Growth: Functions as the Enlarge Person spell using the Applemancer's caster level.
    Apple of Healing: Functions as the Heal spell using the Applemancer's caster level.
