    Class Features:

    Spellcasting: A Dragonpact Mage is a divine spellcaster who draws her power from a pact with a quasi-divine being known as a "spirit dragon" who gives her the ability to cast divine magic. Thus, a Dragonpact Mage uses charisma as their primary casting stat. A Dragonpact Mage must have have a Cha score of 10+ a spell's level in order to cast it and the DCs for her spells are equal to 10+ the spell's level + her Cha modifier. Like a sorcerer she obtains bonus spells for a high charisma score. A Dragonpact Mage has a very limited spell knowledge and uses the same spells known progression as a Sorcerer.

    Spirit Dragon Pact: A Dragonpact Mage's powers come directly from her pact with a spirit dragon which is made when she first takes up the class. Much like a deity, each Spirit Dragon possesses two "Spheres" from which a Dragonpact Mage selects her spells known. A Dragonpact Mage, at character creation, selects one Spheres as a Primary Sphere and one sphere as a Secondary Sphere. A Dragonpact Mage cannot chose a secondary sphere which is an opposition sphere to her primary sphere and cannot chose the Universal Sphere as a primary or secondary sphere. When a Dragonpact Mage chooses a primary sphere she also chooses her second opposed sphere. This can be any sphere except the universal sphere and a sphere which is already an opposed sphere for her. At least half the spells a Dragonpact Mage knows at each spell level must be from her Primary Sphere. All other spells known can be from either their Primary Sphere, Secondary Sphere or the Universal Sphere.

    Pact Boon: As a Dragonpact Mage increases in power they eventually gain access to special abilities called "Pact Boons." Each sphere except for the universal Sphere possesses a special set of Pact Boons which are associated with it. A Dragonpact Mage chooses her pact boons from the pact boon list of her primary sphere pact boon list.

    Advance Learning: At the indicated levels a Dragonpact Mage may gain knowledge of 1 spell from any sphere except her opposed spheres. This spell dose not count against her spells known.

    Spheres:
    < All Spheres are a WIP>

    Death

    Opposed Spheres: Life and One Other

    Description: The Sphere of Death possesses magic that invokes all aspects of the grave. The Death sphere possesses spells which can animate undead, scour enemies with negative energy, drain power from others, invoke the chill of the grave to smite foes and even wield death itself as a weapon. The sphere of death is one which good aligned Dragonpact Mages rarely possess due to it's sinister nature. Only the most dark and depraved individuals take up this sphere as their primary sphere as while it is certainly a road to great power the vile nature of this sphere's magics turn away the pure of heart and weak of stomach.

    Divine

    Opposed Spheres: Earth and One Other

    Description: The Divine Sphere focuses on magic dealing with the other planes of exsistence from which the Spirit Dragons themselves as well as their servants and other creatures dwell and the divine power of the Spirit Dragons. A Dragonpact Mage with this sphere can call divine power to bless allies and curse enemies, gain the omniscience of Spirit Dragons and summon creatures from other planes of existence to fight enemies. Due to the fact this sphere grants powers directly related to the Spirit Dragons themselves rather then the aspects they control this is a popular secondary sphere choice for many Dragonpact Mages. However, just as many chose this as their primary sphere due to the great power and closer connection to the source of their abilities that this sphere offers.

    Earth

    Opposed Spheres: Divine and One Other

    Description: The Earth Sphere, despite it's title, is not exclusively based on the earth element. Rather the earth sphere is one which is focused around the mundane and the prime material plane. A Dragonpact Mage who has accesses to this sphere can control mundane substances such as stone and metal, shield themselves from magical effects and cast spells which counter, dispel and protect against magic. Earth is another common secondary choice among dragonpact mages due to the extra edge it gives them when fighting other spellcasters.

    Description: Due to the divine nature of Dragonpact Mages and their Spirit Dragon partners, every Dragonpact Mage has acssess to a small collection of spells which are based on the Dragonpact Mage's alignment. These spells allow a Dragonpact Mage to detect, protect against and smite creatures of opposing alignments to their own. Due to the universal nature of this sphere it has no pact boons and it's spell list is much smaller then the rest of the Spheres.

    Sphere Spells:

    Level 0: Detect Good/Evil/Law/Chaos

    Level 1: Protection from Good/Evil/Law/Chaos

    Level 2: Align Weapon

    Level 3: Magic Circle against Good/Evil/Law/Chaos

    Level 4: N/A

    Level 5: N/A

    Level 6: Dispel Good/Evil/Law/Chaos

    Level 7: Holy Word, Blasphemy, Dictum, Word of Chaos

    Level 8: Holy Aura, Unholy Aura, Shield of Law, Cloak of Chaos

    Level 9: N/A

    (More Spells MAY be added soon.)




    Notes: This class was made with the intent that it is the only "fullcaster" in the campaign world. Thus the "sphere system" was created to allow the class to be able to be able to fill all the standard caster rolls in a setting with this class as the only fullcaster but yet at the same time not be able to do all those rolls at once. The Advance learning and secondary sphere features allow this class to do a bit more then it's primary sphere allows while still doing what it's primary sphere focuses on best due to the fact half their spells must be from their primary sphere and their pact boons are based around their primary sphere. The setting this class would find itself in (A homebrew setting I am creating) would have no PrCs and has the following base classes allowed:

    Fighters:
    Kensei, Warblade, Crusader, Swordsage,

    Skillmonkies:
    Factotum, Psirogue

    Casters:
    Dragonpact Mage

    But enough on that...more or less the Dragonpact Mage's intended balance level is Tier 2 since I intend it to be the most "powerful" class in this world yet at the same time not make the other classes feel useless. Though at the moment I think it may be too powerful..though I am not really sure. Also be aware it's a WIP, so yeah. Oh, and if you have not guessed I am limiting them to (Mostly) core spells.

    Is this going to involve Dragon Pacts (as in the WoTC Dragon Magic supplement)?

    No. It is actually going to involve a homebrew idea of pacts with "spirit dragons" which are quasi-divine dragons which grant spells and powers to mortals who enter into pacts with them. It's essentially going to be a divine sorcerer who serves as the only fullcaster class in it's setting.

    Here's some Pact Boons for you to consider. If they are accurate to what you were looking for, I'll continue to add a few more as I think of them.

    Pact Boon, Nature Sphere:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Animal Companion: The dragonpact mage attracts an animal companion as a druid of equal level.

    Unhindered: In natural environments, the dragonpact mage's movement is no longer impaired by natural obstacles or terrain. Also, he no longer leaves any tracks if he desires.

    Camouflage: Hide and move silently are now class skills for the dragonpact mage.

    Hide in Plain Sight: (requires camouflage) The dragonpact mage may now attempt to hide in natural terrain even while he's being actively observed.

    Thick Hide: The dragonpact mage gains a natural armor bonus to his AC equal to his Constitution modifier.

    Natural Summoner: The creatures summoned by the dragonpact mage have a +3 morale bonus to hit with their attacks. The dragonpact mage's summons duration is also doubled.

    Wildshape: The dragonpact mage can polymorph into a small or medium sized animal he is familiar with once per day, similar to a druid.


    I also have a few things for you to consider. I was wondering if you would be interested in changing the "Disorder" sphere name to "War"? Perhaps "Order" would be changed to "Community" then. And the "Earth" sphere to... something - I'm still trying to come up with one.

    Also, the disorder sphere as is seems more powerful than the others. It has a few spells that could easily be trimmed out and given to the nature sphere to balance it out. Giving nature Entangle, Animal Growth, and Wall of Thorns seems to fit the theme, and would make a lot of difference in the power disparity.

    I actually like that idea...and your right about those spells being more thematic for the nature Sphere. Also, in addition for Rebuking for death I had the idea to make Undead Mastery(The Dread Necro ability) a boon for death that becomes selectable at higher levels but I feel that just copying the DN's power and making it a boon is kinda a cop out despite the fact there is no DN in this setting. However, I would like some power to increse the number of undead a death DpM can control.

    As for the names I do prefer those. I am sucky with names in general and usually steal them from other things(with minor alterations, of course) or don't bother with them.(I have had BBEGs who's "names" where more or less their title such as "The Dark Master")

    Oh, and I have a few of the other boons up, mainly the Turn/Rebuke ones.

    As for the names, War and community don't work since energy has a more war theme. However, changing energy to "combat(or war)" and mind to something like "Subtlty(Or manipulation)" would be thematic. As for Order and Disorder, Disorder could become "Chaos"(which was my original name idea.) but I feel naming it after an aligenment may be troublesome since Neturals and even lawful(by RAW) characters can take up the sphere...perhaps Entropy would be a better name? Also, I was thinking about moving Destruction to another sphere(In paticluar Death) but I am not sure if that is nessicary. I was also thinking about moving Wail of the Banshie to death and giving Illusion the weird/phantasmal killer line(Which is a better fit there.) and giving Mind either Mindrape or Monsterous Thrall as a 9th and moving Glibness from Life to Mind(It works better there as Mind is the "manipulation" sphere.)

    Would these changes be good or bad?

    EDIT: I have an idea for the undead increser boon, if you want to critique it:\

    Master of the Legion: Your limit for creating undead animated with spells increases to three times your caster level instead of the normal two times caster level. In additon, you can control 4 + your Cha modifier HD of undead for each character level you have instead of the standard 4 HD per character level. This pact boon becomes selectable at level 7.

    The idea of this boon is that it's Undead Mastery while not being Undead mastery. It seems overpowered as of now, but Undead Mastery is basicly corpsecraftter + the HD control increse so if I limit this to being selectable at level 7 onwards(one level before DN's get it) it may not be that broken compaired to Undead Mastery since Corpsecrafter(A feat) is about on par with the deathbound domain in terms of power...

    Edit: I moves some things around. Disorder lost Destruction and gained Insanity and Symbol of Insanity from Mind. Mind gained Lost Weird and phantasmal killer which got swaped to Illusion(it fits better there) and in return Mind got Symbol of stunning as a level seven, Plauge of Nightmares as a level 8 and both Monsterous Thrall and Mind Rape as 9ths In addition Morality Undone was placed in Disorder which lost Blight to death. Death got Destruction at 8, lost Unholy Sword which was sent to Divine and Desecrate and Unhallow where also moved to Divine. Specteral Hand was moved from Divine to Death. Death also gained Wail of the Banshie at 9.

    EDiT: Mind lost Dominate Monster and plague of nightmares. Instead at level 8it has True dominate, and at levels 6 and 9 has the psionic powers Mind Switch and True Mind Switch as divine spells(instead of psionic powers.) at their respective levels.

    Edit: Magic jar moved to death, Death loses Symbol of Death and Blight. Disorder loses Morality Undone and gains back Blight.

    Do these changes unballance things at all?

    Also, I am looking for a better replacement spell for Monsterous Thrall in mind since it dose basicly the same thing as Mindrape but in a weaker way...any ideas would be nice.
