    Default Screw You, Conservation of Energy! [3.5, PrC Redux]

    Since for whatever reason, i'm feeling in a fixing mood. First it was Shadowcaster, and nowwwwwwww..........

    Entropomancer



    Everything is pointless in life and everything is worth nothing, yes. Still, I shall not let my friends be harmed, for their life is worth just as much as yours. - Arabella Flux, an Entropomancer

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Alignment: Any Neutral
    Skills: Concentration 5 ranks, Knowledge (The Planes) 5 ranks
    Domains: Must have access to any of the following domains: Decay (SC), Destruction or Entropy (FCI)

    Special: The prospective Entropomancer may ignore the domain requirement if they have the Destruction Devotion feat.

    Skills Points at Each Level: 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    1st | +0 | +2 | +0 | +2 | Summon Shard of Entropy 1/encounter | ---
    2nd | +1 | +3 | +0 | +3 | Entropic Field 1/encounter | +1 level of existing divine spellcasting class

    10th | +7 | +7 | +3 | +7 | Summon the Sphere | +1 level of existing divine spellcasting class[/table]

    Weapon Proficiencies: An Entropomancer gains no new proficiencies.

    Spellcasting: When a new Entropomancer level is gained other than 1st level, the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in whatever divine spellcasting class he belonged to before he added the prestige class. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. This essentially means that he adds the level of Entropomancer except the 1st to the level of whatever other spellcasting class the character has, then determines spells per day and caster level accordingly.
    If a character had more than one divine spellcasting class before he became an Entropomancer, he must decide to which class he adds each level of Entropomancer for the purpose of determining spells per day.

    Summon Shard of Entropy (Su): At 1st level, the Entropomancer may use their connection to the nothing that permeates the Great Wheel and condense it into a servant of its whims. The Entropomancer may, as a Standard Action, summon a Shard of Entropy (see below) as per Summon Monster I. The Entropomancer can communicate telepathically with the Shard of Entropy for the duration of the summoning. This ability can only be used 1/encounter, plus one more use per encounter at 3rd, 5th and 7th level.

    Entropic Field (Su): At 2nd level, the Entropomancer gains the ability to intensify the entropic energies in its immediate area. As a swift action 1/encounter the Entropomancer may activate its Entropic Field, which lasts for a number of rounds equal to the character's Entropomancer level and has a range of 100ft around the Entropomancer. While the Entropomancer's Entropic Field is active, all magical healing fails. At 4th level, while the Entropic Field is up, once per round the Entropomancer may force one person who has just made a roll for an attack, save or check (after the roll, but before it has any effect) to re-roll the roll and take the worse result of the two rolls. At 6th level, anyone in the entropic field's range takes damage at the end of the round equal to double the character's Entropomancer levels. At 8th level, anyone who dies in the Entropomancer's Entropic Field bolsters the Entropomancer, as the Death Knell spell. Additionally, anyone who dies in the Entropomancer's Entropic Field cannot be brought back to life with anything less than a Resurrection, True Resurrection, Wish or Miracle spell. These effects are cumulative.
    The Entropomancer gains an additional use per encounter of this ability at 5th and 8th level.

    Summon Greater Shard of Entropy: At 5th level, when the Entropomancer uses their Summon Shard of Entropy ability, they summon a Greater Shard of Entropy instead (see below).

    Control Sphere (Su): At 9th level, the Entropomancer gains the ability to control a sphere of annihilation as if they were wearing a talisman of the sphere, and become immune to the effects of a sphere of annihilation, which passes through the Entropomancer as if their square was empty.

    Summon Sphere (Su): At 10th level, the Entropomancer gains the ability to punch a hole in the continuum of the universe and wield it like a weapon. Once per day, as a full-round action they may summon a sphere of annihilation to a square adjacent to their own. The sphere lasts for 5 rounds plus as long as the Entropomancer concentrates on the sphere.

    A Shard of Entropy appears as a swirling field of dark energies dotted with flickers of annihilated matter, making it appear like the night sky.

    A Shard of Entropy does not speak, but always understands its Master's commands (see Entropomancer)

    Combat

    Entropic Touch (Ex): The Shard of Entropy does not care for the bastions that the existing put up to block it - not that it cares for much at all. A Shard of Entropy makes its Slam attacks as touch attacks.

    Entropic Backlash (Ex): As contradictory as it sounds, a thing of nothing will react to its death with annihilating energies. If a Shard of Entropy would be reduced to 0hp, then all creatures within 30ft of the Shard of Entropy must make a Will Save or take 1d2 damage to each of its ability scores. The Save DC is equal to 11 + its summoner's Cha Modifier.

    Swirling Field (Ex): The nothingness of the shard spreads to its surroundings, before fading away in a contradictory self-consumption, making the shard seem like it is jumping in its place like a jittering child. Any creature adjacent to the Shard of Entropy at the end of the round takes 2d4 damage (no save).

    A Greater Shard of Entropy appears as a swirling sea of pitch black energies dotted with bright flashes of annihilated matter, making it appear like a wondrous firework display.

    A Greater Shard of Entropy does not speak, but always understands its Master's commands (see Entropomancer)

    Combat

    Entropic Touch (Ex): The Greater Shard of Entropy cares even less for the bastions that the existing put up to block it than its lesser kin - not that a creature of this kind could care. A Greater Shard of Entropy makes its Slam attacks as touch attacks.

    Entropic Backlash (Ex): As contradictory as it sounds, a Greater Shard of Entropy will react to its death with annihilating energies in a fantastic flash of nothing. If a Greater Shard of Entropy would be reduced to 0hp, then all creatures within 30ft of the Shard of Entropy must make a Will Save or take 1d4 damage to each of its ability scores. The Save DC is equal to 11 + its summoner's Cha Modifier.

    Paradox Field (Ex): The grand nothingness of the shard drowns its surroundings, before dramatically flashing away in a contradictory self-destruction, making the shard seem like it is jumping in its place like a maddened animal. Any creature adjacent to the Shard of Entropy at the end of the round takes 2d6 damage (no save).

    Minor: At level 8, you say that Entropic Field is 3/day. Should it be 3/encounter?

    Slightly less minor: The Shard of Entropy statblock is weird. Incorporeal creatures never have STR scores by definition, and pretending they did have STR scores, the damage on their attacks doesn't add up. Also, "object" isn't a creature type, unless that's a different bit of homebrew I've missed.

    Also, I'm really not sure how I feel about Summon Sphere. The ability to control Spheres of Annihilation is kind of useless without the ability to make them, yes, but there's a reason you don't just give PCs access to the SoA, especially not (as this appears to be) at-will. I understand that they have to be level 17 to get this ability, but still, I'm leery of giving PCs a "you die, no save" ability at-will, especially one that can cause that kind of property damage.

    It should. Good catch.

    1. No, it shouldn't have an STR score. That was me adding the subtype and leaving the score in. Object is just a weird error

    Also, I'm really not sure how I feel about Summon Sphere. The ability to control Spheres of Annihilation is kind of useless without the ability to make them, yes, but there's a reason you don't just give PCs access to the SoA, especially not (as this appears to be) at-will.

    Ah. it was supposed to be 1/day, and I forgot to add that bit.
    Also, at 17th level, There are all kinds of horrific ways of death dealing, and Barghest's Feast can give a 50/50 chance of damaging the soul beyond revival, including via Wish, Miracle and the like, and that's only a 6th level spell. Also, it's a gaping hole in the continuum that only moves about 30ft a round (assuming this isn't an Archivist Entropomancer with a mahoosive Int Modifier). If your BBEG can't avoid that, I give up.

    Anyway, thanks for giving it the look-over. I knew I missed a few things.

    EDIT: Also modified the prerequisites so non-Clerics don't have to jump through hoops to get in.
