    Default New Subsystem: Aura Binding [3.5, WIP, PEACH]

    This is Chapter Eight for my Binder Of Souls Project.
    Details can be found in this thread.

    Chapter Eight: Aura Binding
    Spoiler
    Show

    Wisdom Rune

    This chapter is home to the various effects which is caused by binding a creature to the land and air of a place. This slowly warps its appearance and can taint all within its grip.

    Some Binders can bind souls into places. This soul normally manifests as a magic effect upon the area. The EBL of the binder determines the strength of the binding and can alter the power of the affects.

    Whenever an area has a soul bound into something for a while it starts to be tainted by the soul within it. After one week the creature gets the Minor Tainted Trait, after one month it gains the Moderate Tainted Trait, and finally after a year it gains the Major Tainted Trait.

    The abilities mentioned in the tables are as if the spell is affecting the area that the bound soul gets bound to (Hereby refered to as the target area). The bound soul is still conscious and can communicate with all within the target area via telepathy.

    The bound soul can sense the world through the senses of all the creatures within the target area.

    A binder may use make the binding weaker if they wish to at the time of Binding.

    Note: EBL stands for Effective Binder Level.

    Table of Aura Sizes
    The size of the target area is determined by the Binders power. They are all circular is shape and the length of the radius is determined by the Binder's EBL.

    Aura
    The Aura Receptacle allows a Binder to place a soul within an area. This grants a Genius Loci to the area. The size of this area is determined by your EBL.


    The Genius Loci has no physical ability scores, and has the mental ability scores equal to the bound creature. A Genius Loci views everything within the area as if it had Blindsight. It is always considered taking 10 on spot checks unless it is commiting some other action.

    While a Genius Loci retains its memories, personality, and knowledge, the Binder who created it can command it while within its area as a full-round action.

    A Genius Loci normally has no physical presence and can merely observe. As a Swift action, the Genius Loci can become manifested. While manifested it gains a transparent incorporeal medium sized body which generally mimics its natural form, in addition this body can speak any language known by the Genius Loci.

    This body can be moved to any 5 foot square within the area as a move-action. And by expending a standard action it can ultise any of its Aura Traits (If its Trait would normally not be activated by a standard action, it is changed to a standard action).

    Whenever an area has a soul bound into it for a while it starts to be tainted by the soul within it. An area inhabited by a Genius Loci is affected by the Ambient Taint of the souls. Also while manifesting, the area is affected by the Manifested Taint of the Souls.

    In addition to taint; the Genius Loci may select an Aura Trait from the bound creature. Moderate Traits can only be choosen if the Binder has a EBL of 10 or more. Major Traits can only be choosen if the Binder has a EBL of 15 or more.

    A binder may use make the binding weaker if they wish to at the time of Binding.

    Gesalt Genius Loci: Souls can be placed into an existing Genius Loci, doing so causes the following changes:
    Its Intelligence equal to the highest in the gesalt.
    Its Wisdom equal to the highest in the gesalt.
    Its Charisma equal to the highest in the gesalt.
    It gains the Aura Traits of each soul.
    It has the memories, personality, and knowledge of all the souls that make it up.
    It has the Ambient Taints of all in the Gesalt.
    It has the Manifested Taints of all in the Gesalt.

    Note: EBL stands for Effective Binder Level.
