    Default Base Class Contest XIX - Inner Might

    Inner Might

    Welcome to base class challenge number nineteen! Let's have fun creating some breathtaking base classes! The rules are below, as always. Make an original D&D 3.5 base class and fight for the right to keep your kneecaps!


    1. You will be creating an original base class based around a theme of the inner planes; anything is possible, from pyromancers and cryomancers to knights who straddle the line between light and darkness to LIGHTNING BOLT, so have fun with it! You may not post your entry anywhere else until after the contest is finished. If you have already posted a class under this theme, you may not enter it for this contest. You may use previous homebrew in your classes as long as no mention of the class or any part of the class was made in that homebrew. Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!

    2. Submissions are due by 23:59 Central Standard Time (USA/Canada) on October 16th, and should be submitted in the format shown in the next post or at least in a way that's easy on the eyes. Feel free to play around with fonts, images, and the like; just make sure it's not hard to read.

    3. There must be a name, complete class, and fluff for both combat and role playing purposes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified--no exceptions.

    4. Everyone is allowed only one entry per contest.

    5. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Violators will be towed disqualified and reported.


    The chat thread is here. Feel free to discuss each other's creations, give critique, or talk about what you're thinking of this contest, but entries (and nothing else) belong in this challenge thread.

    It's a bird! It's a plane!

    ...It's a plane!

    The Gate

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    Getting cocky, eh? We'll see how well you can sneer when you have to start holding your breath.
    -Larai, Keeper of the Wind Shrine



    Adventures: Gates advanture for any number of reasons, as their personalities and circumstances are as radical and varied as the planes themselves.

    Characteristics: Gates channel the innate power of neighboring planes, altering themselves, others, or the battlefield.

    Alignment: Any.

    Religion: Gates may venerate gods of travel or protection, praying for their blessing in the hopes of staving off disaster.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: Any can manifest the ability, though unliving races are rarer, due to the fact that the physical strain involved tends to tear their body apart.

    Other Classes: Druids tend to be wary of gates due to their tendency to rip nature a new one wherever they decide to manifest their abilities. Gates share a special kinship with sorcerers and warlocks due to their shared experience with innate understanding of magical forces, and indeed, more mundane people often mistake Gates for particularly odd sorcerers.

    Role: The gate excels in the role of a battlefield controller, though they may serve as primary melee combatant, depending on playstyle.

    Adaptation: Gates may result from the fruition of long hours of research, rather than innate talent. In this case, replace all mentions of Charisma in class features with Intelligence, reduce skill points to 2+int mod, and replace social skills with more knowledges and spellcraft.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Gates have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Constitution is important to Gates for endurance to withstand the physical strain of channeling, as well as being able to take a hit. Gates also need Charisma to force their will and desire into their channeling and execute fine control.
    Alignment: Any.
    Hit Die: d6
    Starting Age: As Barbarian
    Starting Gold: 4d4x10 gold (100 gp)

    Class Skills
    The Gate's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Heal (Wis), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (The Planes) (Int), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex)

    Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4

    Jinnblood
    “Good? Evil? What matter these constructs of the mind. Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, all things are made from these, all things have their wellspring there. They are true power!” – Hayden Fraes, a large ham barmy jinnblood

    A jinnblood is wields the power of the elements, flowing naturally from their fingertips. Reliant primarily on a raw surge of jumbled elemental energy as their primary offense, a jinnblood has a variety of other abilities open to them. Their elemental invocations are primarily usable freely, but some develop more specialized powers that require several moments of calm between uses, or even hold such power that they can only be used once a day.

    Adventures: A jinnblood might adventure for any of many reasons. Many born on the Prime find that their powers are distrusted, confused with the demonic powers of warlocks, and adventure because they have little place in society. Others adventure out of curiosity. Their powers are a rarity, an inborn connection to one of the four elements which leads them to a kinship with it. To many just trying to find out why this is, what gave them this power, is reason enough to adventure as such knowledge is beyond common men held by those with power, or in places of lost power.

    On the Inner Planes, and to a limited extent the Outer Planes, they are more respected and common. Where a Prime Material jinnblood may adventure to find out why they have this power, planar jinnblood often feel they already know. Many take to adventuring out of a sense of pride, they have been gifted this great power and it would be a shame to squander it in a life that is merely ordinary. Others adventure because even on the planes they feel out of place in mortal society, more at home in the wilds of the Elemental Planes, and with a burning desire to unlock the tightly guarded secrets of these worlds.

    Characteristics: A jinnblood wields the powers of the elements themselves, channeling them into magical effects. At their most basic a jinnblood is a ranged combatant, relying on their elemental blast to either weaken or kill enemies. Their invocations provide a variety of boons allowing them a mixture of defensive abilities, fogs and walls which serve to reshape the battlefield, and various utility powers. A jinnblood’s abilities makes them well suited to traversing hostile environments, such as those found on the Inner Planes.

    Alignment: Jinnbloods show no strong tendencies towards any alignment. Earth jinnbloods show a leaning towards the lawful alignments, while air and fire jinnbloods are more commonly chaotic. Fire jinnbloods are also polarized between moral alignment, being most commonly passionately good or evil, meanwhile air blooded are usually unconcerned with good or evil. Earth blooded show no strong leaning towards good, evil, or even neutrality in the moral sense, and water blooded reflect their race’s alignment spread fairly evenly.

    On the Inner Planes this changes somewhat, as many jinnbloods find themselves aligning with one of the Archomentals. As such jinnbloods on the Inner Planes are more commonly divided between good and evil.

    Religion: Many jinnbloods turn to gods with a strong tie to one or more of the elements, especially the one corresponding to their path. Others worship gods of nature as a whole, or travel, while still others forgo gods altogether stitching together a somewhat animistic worship of the elements directly. On the Inner Planes, and on Prime Material Planes where they are well known, many jinnbloods worship the Archomental Princes and Princesses of Elemental Good and Evil.

    Background: The power of a jinnblood typically comes naturally. The common theory is that they have traces of genie descent and in some sort of genetic throwback they redevelop these powers which connects them to the elements. Others are descended from other elemental creatures, or are elemental creatures themselves. Rarer are the jinnblood who are the children of elementally dedicated priests and druids who manifest naturally some of the magical powers of their parents. Other jinnbloods have an almost inexplicable connection to the elements the source of which is varied, sometimes it is a matter of the place they were born some leaking of elemental essence into the plane, other times it could simply be fate. It is said that jinnbloods are born not made, but this simple phrase may be wrong. Stories tell of monasteries on the Inner Planes, and a few Primes, were sages teach a creature to harmonize with the elemental powers within them opening themselves to act as a conduit to the raw power of the elemental planes.

    Races: Among the common races jinnbloods show up most commonly in cultures that deal heavily with denizens of the Inner Planes or with strong elemental connections. As such humans, and some elven civilizations, sometimes count jinnbloods among their numbers, but it is in dwarves and gnomes that jinnbloods specifically earth blooded ones are most common. Outside of the common races, earth blooded duergar outnumber their hill and mountain dwarf counterparts several times over due to the duergars’ close dealings with the dao.

    Among the planes, genasi are very likely to be jinnbloods, not surprising as they are often half genie and it is basically assumed that those who do not manifest it naturally could do so with some training. Mephits contend with genasi for the most common members of the class, though, and many of the planes’ mephit dukes are jinnbloods of some power. Mephlings are less likely to become jinnbloods than their mephit forefathers. Elementals and paraelementals count a few jinnbloods among their numbers, but for one of their number to become a jinnblood seems to be an act of dedicated practice and study that few perform. Genies count relatively few jinnbloods among them, save for the jann who are almost as likely to become a jinnblood as a mephit or genasi. Among the Outer Planar races jinnbloods are rare, a few fiends and celestials with elemental connections manifest these powers and some of their planetouched children, but it is extremely rare for a jinnblood to be counted among the githzerai, neraphim, bariurs, or rogue modrons.

    Other Classes: Jinnbloods get along well with druids, their natural connection to the elements giving them a common ground. The same holds true with elemental clerics. They typically know the value of a rogue’s ability to get around, and the usefulness of a frontline combatant to keep enemies away. Jinnbloods are often more accepting of a warlock than most, knowing the hatred that common people often feel for those with a hint of demonic power, but despite their similar powers they feel little true connection with those whose power source is actually so fundamentally different. They respect the power of sorcerers and wizards, but typically get along better with the former who share their innate power tempered by limited learning than with wizards who all too often would study them as a curiosity instead of interact with them as a person.

    Role: A jinnblood serves as a ranged combatant dealing out a moderate amount of damage coupled with the potential to debuff opponents. Depending upon a jinnblood’s invocations they can have a variety of debuffing elemental blasts, fogs and walls to shape the battlefield, defensive powers, or even a few buffs usable to augment the power of allies. Between their ability to gain any movement mode, given sufficient levels, various extra senses, increased speed and invisibility a jinnblood can make a decent scout. Their allied buffs, though, are limited and they cannot fulfill the role of a primary buff specialist like a true caster or a bard.

    Adaptation: A jinnblood could be divorced from genies entirely, simply drawing their powers from the elements. They could be the priests of a special religious order, or if their invocations were made arcane like a warlock’s and they were given the ability to ignore spell failure for light armor an order of elementalist mages. Remove their first level invocation, give them a monk’s unarmed strike, Wind’s Grace, remove the 30-ft range on their Elemental Blast and make it instead channeled through an unarmed strike or melee touch attack and you can easily turn them into elemental monks.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    JINNBLOODS have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: A jinnblood’s Wisdom determines how hard it is to resist their debuffing effects, or any other effects of their invocations. Their Dexterity determines their accuracy, most important at low levels, and adds to their armor class. Constitution serves to increase Fortitude saves and hp allowing them to survive if an enemy does manage to get into melee with them. Intelligence and Charisma are important for various skills and abilities. Strength is their least important ability.
    Alignment: Any.
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As barbarian/simple.
    Starting Gold: 4d4x10 (100 GP).

    Skill Points at 1st Level: (4 + Int modifier) ×4.
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 4 + Int modifier.

    Weapons and Armor Proficiencies: A jinnblood is proficient in all simple weapons, and in light and medium armor.

    Invocations: A jinnblood gains access to invocations similar to those of a warlock or dragonfire adept. Unlike a warlock or dragonfire adept a jinnblood’s invocations are closer to divine magic than arcane and they are considered to have a divine caster level instead of an arcane one for fulfilling prerequisites and never suffer arcane spell failure. A jinnblood uses their Wisdom modifier, instead of their Charisma modifier, for determining the save DCs for their invocations and how hard they are to resist.

    In addition certain jinnblood invocations are limited in their use to once per day or once per encounter. A jinnblood may learn such an invocation more than once, doing so gives them an extra use of that invocation for each extra time it is learned.

    At 1st level jinnblood can only select Least invocations. At 6th level when they gain access to Lesser invocations. At 11th level they gain access to Greater invocations. At 16th level they gain access to Primal invocations their equivalent of Dark or Draconic invocations.

    A jinnblood may take the Infernal Adept feat to gain access to Dragonfire Adept and Warlock invocations, and it may be used by the aforementioned to gain access to jinnblood at-will invocations.

    Elemental Blast (Sp): An elemental blast is a ray with a range of 30 feet. It is a ranged touch attack that affects a single target, allowing no saving throw. An elemental blast deals 1d6 points of damage at 1st level and increases in power as the jinnblood rises in level. This damage, sometimes called Planar damage, is a composite of Acid, Cold, Electric, Fire, Negative and Positive energy and is only resisted by a creature which resists all these types of damage (living creatures and constructs are considered to be immune to positive energy for this purpose) and it uses the weakest resistance/immunity from among them; vulnerabilities do not apply. It is otherwise identical to a warlock’s eldritch blast.

    Elemental Blasts and Eldritch Blasts: If a character possesses both an elemental blast and an eldritch blast they may combine them into a single attack. This attack deals damage equal to the combined damage of their elemental blast and eldritch blast. The range is the lesser of the two attacks (typically the elemental blast’s 30-ft range) and the damage is Planar damage unless an eldritch or elemental essence sets it to another type.

    Should a jinnblood gain access to an Eldritch Essence invocation it may be used as an Elemental Essence (the two terms are equivalent) applied to an Elemental Blast, and should a warlock gain access to an Elemental Essence the reverse applies.

    An Elemental Blast can be used to qualify for Eldritch Theurge as if it were an Eldritch Blast.

    In a gestalt game you may not stack your elemental and eldritch blast damage to obtain damage higher than 1/2 your character level (rounded up) +1 in dice.

    Path of the Elements: A jinnblood’s power springs from the elements that form the world. Each jinnblood’s connection to these powers is strongest with regards to a certain element. At first level a jinnblood selects one of the four classical elements (Air, Earth, Fire, or Water), this determines the abilities gained from the Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Step abilities and also grants the jinnblood a second good save for their jinnblood levels.

    If they select Air or Fire they treat Reflex saves as a good save.

    If they select Earth or Water they treat Fortitude saves as a good save.

    Detect Elementals (Sp): A jinnblood can detect elemental creatures, whether true elementals, non-elementals with elemental subtypes, and natives to the Inner Planes. This functions as Detect Undead with the following differences:
    • It detects elementals, creatures with elemental subtypes, and natives to the Inner Planes even if they lack an elemental subtype or the elemental type.
    • Creatures lacking the elemental type has an aura of one half the normal strength.
    • During the 2nd round you may also determine which of these auras are associated with a creature with an element subtype matching your Elemental Path.


    Blast Invocation: At 3rd level a jinnblood gains a least elemental essence or blast shape invocation if they do not already have one. If you already have a least elemental essence or blast shape invocation you may instead select any least jinnblood invocation.

    At 8th level, 13th level, and 18th level a jinnblood gains another invocation with the same restrictions except that each one is 1 grade higher than the one before it.

    Planar Knowledge (Ex): A jinnblood finds that they are able to instinctually grasp information about the Inner Planes from which their powers spring. At 4th level a jinnblood gains a +4 insight bonus on Knowledge (the Planes) checks concerning the Inner Planes and their inhabitants and a +2 insight bonus to Survival checks made on the Inner Planes.

    Second Step (Ex): A jinnblood’s deep connection to the elemental powers serves to help protect them from harm. At 5th level a jinnblood gains an ability based on their Elemental Path.

    Air: +1 dodge bonus to AC per 5 class levels.
    Earth: DR 1/-. This DR increases by 1 for every 5 class levels beyond 5th.
    Fire: Once per round when you receive damage you may take a 5-ft step as a free action even if it is not your turn. Beginning at 15th level you may use this ability an additional time per round, but only once per instance of damage. You may not use this ability in response to damage caused by entering a square.
    Water: You gain 2 temp hp at the start of every round (these do not stack with other temporary hp or themselves) +2 temp hp for every 5 class levels beyond 5th you obtain. At 8th level you gain Uncanny Dodge. This becomes Improved Uncanny Dodge once you obtain 13th level.

    Elemental Diplomat (Su): Jinnblood’s often find themselves as go-betweens for various elemental beings, and find that their resonance with the elemental powers lend their words carry a preternatural weight. Beginning at 7th level a jinnblood gains a +3 competence bonus on Charisma checks, Charisma based skill checks, and Sense Motive checks made when dealing with creatures with an elemental subtype matching the jinnblood’s elemental path.

    Focused Blast: A jinnblood learns to focus their elemental blast increasing its power. A jinnblood of at least 8th level may spend a full-round action to use their elemental blast with a -3 penalty to hit. If they do so the base damage from the jinnblood’s elemental blast, and any bonus damage from an elemental essence (but not other sources of bonus damage), is doubled. Focused blast may not be used with any blast shape that causes their elemental blast to strike multiple creatures or make multiple attacks. If combined with Empower Spell-like Ability (or similar effect) this gives a 150% increase total to the base damage and bonus damage from elemental essences (and 50% from other sources of bonus due to the Empower effect).

    Beginning at 14th level a jinnblood may use their Focused Blast with an elemental blast that affects an area but when doing so the DC of any save for half damage is reduced by 4. They still may not use it with any ability which allows multiple attacks to be made against a single target.

    Beginning at 16th level a jinnblood's focused blast now may deal triple the base damage (including damage from elemental essences) instead of double damage but suffers a -6 to hit instead of -3 when used this way. If combined with Empower Spell-like Ability (or similar effect) this gives a 250% increase total to the base damage and bonus damage from elemental essences (and 50% from other sources of bonus due to the Empower effect).

    Alter the Flow (Su): As a jinnblood’s connection to their elemental powers deepen so too does their understanding of them. With understanding comes control, and eventually jinnbloods learn to alter the natural flow of their powers allowing them to change how they are manifested. Beginning at 9th level a jinnblood may, once per day, spend 1 hour in meditation to change one Least invocation they have access to as a jinnblood to another jinnblood invocation of the same grade. The sacrificed invocation must be available to use (so it cannot be an expended daily invocation), and it must be an invocation gained through class levels. In addition you must still have at least one blast shape or elemental essence invocation gained through class levels of each grade, and you must retain your Fourth Step invocation. Using this ability ends any currently active instances of the invocation that was lost.

    Levels in a class which advance jinnblood invocations stack with jinnblood levels to gain access to Alter the Flow and its improvements.

    At 14th level a jinnblood using this ability may change one Least or Lesser invocation under the same restrictions that apply above.

    At 19th level a jinnblood using this ability may change one Least, one Lesser, and one Greater invocation (they may choose to only change one or two invocations, they do not have to change one of each grade) under the same restrictions that apply above. In addition activating this ability now only requires 10 minutes.

    Third Step (Ex): A jinnblood grows ever closer to their elemental power source. Beginning at 10th level a jinnblood gains either Evasion or Mettle depending upon their elemental path. If they selected the Air or Fire path they gain Evasion, and if they selected the Earth or Water path they gain Mettle.

    Elemental Adaptation (Ex): A jinnblood is at home amongst the elements, moving through the Inner Planes with safety even without a need for magical protection. Beginning at 12th level a jinnblood is continuously affected as if by the Avoid Planar EffectsSpC spell.

    Fourth Step: A jinnblood’s mastery of their elemental nature continues to deepen manifesting in the form of an additional invocation. At 15th level a jinnblood gains an invocation based on their choice of elemental path, if they already have this invocation they may select a different greater jinnblood invocation in its place.

    Air: Shield of Winds

    Earth: Earth Glide

    Fire: Blazing Blast

    Water: Water Step

    Elemental Immutability (Ex): A jinnblood elemental connection grounds them, tying their form to the world. Beginning at 17th level a jinnblood is immune to any effect which would alter their physical form (polymorph, disintegration, petrification, most Transmutation effects) and allows a save. A jinnblood may still choose to allow the effect to affect him, but they are no longer considered willing for such effects while unconscious.

    Fifth Step (Ex): A jinnblood’s growing closeness to the elemental powers leads them to eventually transcend their natural form entirely. At 20th level a jinnblood’s type changes to Elemental and they gain the subtype matching their Elemental Path. They gain all traits associated with that subtype and the elemental type including immunity to stunning, critical hits, poison, etc, but may still be resurrected normally. In addition this transformation permanently halts a jinnblood’s aging (any previous penalties or bonuses still apply but they will not accrue new ones) and they no longer have a maximum age.

    The jinnblood also gains the ability to move between the elemental planes and the Prime Material Plane gaining the ability to use Plane Shift as a spell-like ability at-will on themselves only. They may only use this ability to move to the Prime Material Plane or the Inner Plane matching their Elemental Path and, if the old 2nd edition cosmology is used, any paraelemental or quasielemental plane bordering it. When this ability is use to travel to their corresponding Inner Plane (but not its neighboring planes) this ability does not suffer from the inaccuracy normally inherent in Plane Shift.

    Alternate Class Feature: The Qorrashi Born:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Some jinnbloods draw their power primarily from the Paraelemental Plane of Ice, hypothetically due to descent from the qorrashi or ice genies (Frostburn page 131). These jinnbloods replace their Elemental Path and abilities which build off of it. This is close to a 5th elemental path but different enough to be listed separately. They also require the use of a non-standard cosmology (for 3.X, normal for 2e and earlier) with either the paraelemental planes or the Elemental Plane of Cold.

    Changes

    Level 1: Elemental Path is replaced with Path of Ice; this grants you a good Fortitude save (just as selecting Earth or Water does).

    Level 5: A Qorrashi Born still gains the Second Step as normal but gain the extraordinary ability to hide without cover or concealment as long as they are in an area with ice or snow not of their own creation. At Lv 10 this ability lets them do so even if they are being observed.

    Level 7: A qorrashi born replaces Elemental Diplomat with Tongue of Ice. This ability functions the same but applies whenever dealing with creatures of the Cold subtype.

    Level 10: A qorrashi born's Third Step grants them Mettle.

    Level 15: A qorrashi born's Fourth Step grants them the Frigid Gaze invocation.

    Level 20: A qorrashi born's Fifth Step gives them the Cold and Air subtypes and they may move to the paraelemental Plane of Ice as well as both the Elemental Planes of Water and Air but may not go to any quasielemental planes with this ability.


    Alternate Class Feature: Jannblooded
    Spoiler
    Show

    Jannblooded:
    Like qorrashi blooded this alternate class feature changes your elemental path feature and abilities which build off of it. Where the qorrashi blooded represents an affinity for a paraelement, the jannblooded is a jinnblood whose elemental affinity truly is equal amongst all four elements.

    The following abilities are affected/changed:

    Elemental Path: Your Fort and Reflex saves are both poor, but you gain a +1 untyped bonus to them both, increasing to +2 at Lv 10, and +3 at Lv 20.

    2nd Step: 1/day per 5 class levels you may, as an immediate action, gain a +10 sacred (if good or neutral) or profane (if evil) bonus to your AC against an attack after you know whether it would normally hit your AC.

    Elemental Diplomat: Replace this ability with Transelemental Diplomat granting a +2 on all the same checks but applying to any creature with an elemental subtype.

    3rd Step: A jannblood does not get either Mettle or Evasion, instead they gain the ability to 3/day re-roll a saving throw as a free action usable outside of their turn. They must accept the new roll even if it is worse than the initial roll.

    4th Step: You gain the Gas Shape invocation.

    5th Step: You gain all four elemental subtypes and may travel to any of the four elemental planes, but do not gain full accuracy with any of them.

    Jinnblood Invocations:


    Jinnblood invocations function like warlock invocations, except they are divine in nature as opposed to arcane. In addition they are further divided including some invocations that can only be used once per encounter (or per 3 minutes out of combat) or once per day. A jinnblood’s invocations come from an elemental, as opposed to fiendish or fey source, and as such while some jinnblood invocations are mechanically identical to warlock invocations these often have different visual effects, for example a jinnblood’s Fell Flight is more likely to be represented with a wind lifting them up, or a cloak of mist, smoke, or storm clouds than one of shadows.

    A jinnblood’s elemental essences work like warlock eldritch essences and the two terms are functionally identical. An encounter or daily elemental essence applied to an elemental blast along with an effect (such as Eldritch Glaive or Elemental Tri-Shot) which allows for multiple attacks only applies any extra damage due to the elemental essence to the first attack.

    Caress of Frost: 1st level
    You coat the ground with a covering of ice, making movement across it difficult. You cover a 10-ft square within 30-ft with ice, any creature in this area when you activate this ability must make a Reflex save or fall prone. In addition moving through this area costs double the normal movement cost, any balance or tumble checks are made at -5, and any attempt to double move, withdraw, charge, or run through an area including this ice requires a DC 5 balance check (made at -5), on a failure the creature slips and falls.

    The ice created by this ability lasts 1 +1/2 Wisdom bonus (minimum +0) rounds.

    Child of the Waves: 2nd Level
    Your hands and feet become webbed as gills appear on your throat. You gain a swim speed equal to your land speed and the ability to breathe water.

This ability lasts for 24 hours.

    Cloak of Radiance: 2nd Level
    You are surrounded by a nimbus of light equivalent to a daylight spell.

This effect lasts 24 hours or until dismissed.

    Dusk Blast: 2nd Level
    Your elemental blast carries with it the power of twilight, of time passing, and the gentle end to light.

Your Elemental Blast deals untyped subdual damage and any creature struck by it must make a Fortitude save or suffer 2 points of Strength damage.

    Earth-ear: 2nd Level

    Elemental Lance: 1st Level
    You may use your elemental blast as a melee touch attack, this is treated as a one-handed weapon for the purpose of Power Attack and you may apply your strength bonus (if any) to damage, and your melee reach is increased by 5-ft for the purpose of this attack. Until the start of your next turn you may make attacks of opportunity with your Elemental Blast although the reach increase does not apply for determining your threatened area and these attacks of opportunity do not benefit from Focused Blast or any Elemental Essences.

    Fogsight: 1st Level
    You gain Low-Light Vision and you may see through fogs, clouds, and mist (magical and otherwise) that would normally obscure vision and grant concealment, though this enhanced vision is limited to a range of 60-ft and any portion of fog/mist/cloud beyond this range obscures your vision normally. This effect lasts 24 hours or until dismissed.

    Jann’s Tongue: 2nd Level
    You call upon the golden tongues of the jann who, composed of all four elements, are natives to all the Inner Planes and therefore often the diplomats across them.

    Waste Walker: 2nd Level
    You gain acid resistance equal to twice your caster level, and a +5 bonus on saves versus Poison and Disease; at CL 10 this becomes immunity to poison and disease. This effect lasts 24 hours or until dismissed.

    Whisper of the Wind: 2nd Level
    This functions as the spell Whispering Wind but you may target a creature. If they are further than 1 mile/caster level away the spell fails. If they are less then the wind will seek them out and deliver their message. A creature with a Nondetection spell or a Mindblank spell active cannot be targeted in this way.

    Wind’s Grace: 2nd Level
    When unarmored, unencumbered, and not carrying a shield you gain an insight bonus to your armor class equal to your Wisdom modifier as the voice of the wind guides your movements. This bonus lasts for 24 hours. This bonus does not stack with a monk’s bonus to AC.

    Worldwalker's Step: 2nd level
    The jinnborn seems to be in tune with the world around them moving with its flows and not against them, gaining every possible advantage from the terrain and turning it to their aid. While this ability is active you ignore any extra cost in movement due to terrain, both natural and magical, and gain a +4 insight bonus to Balance checks, retain your Dexterity bonus to AC when balancing as if you had 5 ranks in balance, and lastly you never suffer penalties to tumble checks based on terrain. This does not allow you to walk on water, or move through terrain that would normally require a movement speed you do not possess. These benefits last 24 hours.

    Anchoring Blast: 4th Level
    Any creature struck by your Elemental Blast is affected as if by a Dimensional Anchor spell for 1 round, a successful Will save at -4 negates this effect.

    Claws of Mist: 3rd Level
    You conjure forth talons made of semi-solid mist. These talons attack 1 creature/3 caster levels making melee touch attacks with a base attack bonus equal to your caster level and using your Wisdom as their Strength. On a hit they deal 1d12 + Caster Level damage and attempt to grapple the target. They have a +8 bonus to grapple and no size modifier. These claws have an AC of 14 + your Wisdom modifier and 2 hp per caster level, and automatically fail all saves but are considered to be mindless and have no constitution modifier. At the beginning of your next turn all claws created by this channel vanish.

    Cloak of Smoke: 3rd Level
    A second skin of black smoke surrounds you obscuring your exact location. Attacks made against you suffer a 20% miss chance as if from the Blur spell.

    Cloud of Ashes: 4th Level
    You create a cloud of ash. This functions as a Fog Cloud spell except that creatures entering the cloud or starting their turn within it take 1d6 cold damage per 3 caster levels and must make a Fortitude save or be Fatigued for as long as they are within the cloud and for 1 round + 1 round/8 caster levels thereafter. You may only have one Cloud of Ashes active at a time.

    Deluge Blast: 4th Level
    Your Elemental Blast includes a torrential force of water. Any creature struck must make a Reflex save or be knocked prone.

    Desiccating Blast: 4th Level
    Your Elemental Blast deals desiccation damage (see Sandstorm page 15), and all dice are increased to d8s against plants and elemental creatures of the water subtype. Any creature damaged by this blast must make a Fort save or be exhausted for 1 round.

    Earthbinding Blast: 4th Level
    Any creature struck must make a Reflex save or be unable to fly for 1 round/4 caster levels and take 2 Dexterity damage. A creature knocked to the ground by this effect falls as if under the effect of a feather fall spell.

    Elemental Charm: 4th Level
    This functions as the warlock’s Charm invocation but only affects creatures of the Elemental type or with the Air, Earth, Fire, or Water subtype. The Will save to resist this effect is increased by 1 and you may use your Wisdom in place of Charisma when dealing with the charmed target or for opposed checks when two charm effects come in conflict.

    Elemental Resistance: 3rd Level
    Touched target gains acid, cold, electric, fire, or sonic resistance 5 + your caster level. You may instead choose to gain resistance to desiccation damage, damage and healing (but not negative levels or ability damage from) positive or negative energy, or any damage caused by effects which disintegrate the target. You may only have one Elemental Resistance active at a time and activating it again ends the old effect. This effect lasts 24 hours.

    Elemental Spray: 4th Level
    Your elemental blast fans out from your hands. This creates a line 15-ft wide and 10-ft long, continuing an additional 5-ft at 5-ft width. Any creature in the area may make a Reflex save for half damage.

    Flame’s Cloak: 4th Level
    Fire surrounds you sheltering you from the cold and harming creatures which strike you in melee. You gain Cold Resistance equal to twice your caster level and any creature striking you in melee suffers 1d6 fire damage +1d6/6 caster levels. This ability lasts 1 round per caster level.

    Icy Wind: 3rd Level
    You release a powerful gust of wind which slows and freezes enemies. This copies the effects of gust of wind but any creature within the area when the ability is used or entering the area takes 3d4 Dexterity damage as ice freezes across them, freezes their muscles, and even begins to freeze their blood. A creature may make either a Reflex save to negate this damage or a Fortitude save to halve it. A creature immune to cold is immune to Dexterity damage from this effect and any Dexterity damage caused by this effect disappears after 1 minute. A creature that has its Dexterity reduced to 0 by this effect must heal the Dexterity damage normally and is frozen solid, placed into a state of suspended animation for as long as the ice covers them. The ice will not melt until 12 hours have passed (and the jinnblood can reapply the ice if needed) and has a hardness of 10 and 10 hit points per caster level; fire deals full damage to the ice and ignores its hardness. The transparent ice blocks line of effect to the creature within but not line of sight.

    Naiad’s Gift: 3rd Level
    Touched creature gains a Swim speed equal to their land speed and the ability to breathe water for 10 minutes/caster level; unlike most Channels that can be placed on another target you may have any number of instances of this ability active.

    Radiant Blast: 4th Level
    Your Elemental Blast deals fire damage. On a successful hit the target must make a Fort save or be Blinded for 1 round.

    Storm Sprint: 4th Level
    As part of this channel you move up to 5-ft per caster level (as if you had a fly speed with perfect maneuverability). Movement made as part of this channel does not provoke attacks of opportunity and you may freely pass through squares occupied by other creatures. Any creature whose square you enter takes 1d6 electricity damage per 2 caster levels you have (regardless of how many times you enter their square a target only receives damage once); a successful Reflex save halves this damage.

    Slowing Blast: 4th Level
    Any creature damaged by your Elemental Blast must make a Will save or be Slowed for 1 round.

    Water is Formless: 4th Level
    Your body becomes ooze-like in consistency. You gain Moderate Fortification (as the armor quality; prevents bonus damage from 50% of critical hits and sneak attack) and may compress your body to fit through gaps and cracks of at least 1/3 an inch in width, this also means you no longer suffer penalties for fighting while squeezing. In addition you may reshape your features (and to an extent body shape) as a standard action at-will, granting you a +10 circumstance bonus to disguise checks. The benefits of this effect last 24 hours.

    Zephyr’s Freedom: 4th Level
    You are continuously under a Freedom of Movement effect, in addition you may ignore difficult terrain and gain a +4 dodge bonus against attacks of opportunity caused by movement.

    Blazing Blast: 6th level
    Your Elemental Blast deals fire damage. On a successful hit the target must make a Fort save or be Dazed for 1 round.

    Control Weather: 7th level
    This functions as the spell, Control Weather but it lasts only 24 hours, and you may not create Hurricane or Tornado force winds. You may only have a number of instances of this effect active at once equal to your Wisdom bonus (minimum of 1).

    Earth Glide: 6th Level
    You gain Earth Glide with a 24 hour duration, but you must emerge from the rock to make attacks (melee or otherwise) against creatures outside of the rock. In addition you may see through stone and dirt less than 5-ft in thickness, metal less than 1-ft in thickness, and lead less than 1 inch thick.

    Elemental Burst: 5th Level
    Your elemental blast becomes a 10-ft radius burst centered within 100-ft of you.

    Elemental Horde: 5th Level
    You summon forth an elementite swarm (Planar Handbook page 114) at a point within close range that you designate. This swarm lasts 24 hours and vanishes if you summon a second swarm, or if the swarm moves further than close range from you, it immediately vanishes. The summoned swarm deals damage as a magic weapon for the purposes of DR and gains a +4 enhancement bonus to Constitution (increasing their hp by 14, Fort save bonus by 2, and distraction and burn save DCs by 2).

    Elemental Quake: 5th Level
    Your elemental blast may target any number of creatures within 30-ft that are touching the ground, without requiring an attack roll but they are allowed a Fortitude save for half damage; you may target any creature you may sense with tremorsense even if you do not have line of sight to them and/or they have total concealment. The range of this effect is measured through the ground (meaning that if there is a pit in the way then it must go down the pit and back up), and this effect may strike through objects and walls, as long as there is a path through the ground to the enemy. You must be touching the ground to use this invocation.

    Elemental Warding: 5th level
    You gain resistance to all 5 energy types (acid, cold, electricity, fire and sonic), as well as desiccation damage, damage (but not healing) from positive and negative energy, and damage dealt by disintegration effects. This effect lasts for 24 hours.

    Frigid Gaze: 6th level
    Your eyes become a conduit of pure frost granting you a gaze attack out to 30-ft. Any creature meeting your gaze must make a Will save or take 1d6 cold damage +1d6/6 caster levels. You may choose to exempt certain creatures within sight as a free action on your turn. The benefits of this invocation last 24 hours.

    Gas Form: 5th level
    You assume a gaseous form. This functions as the spell Gaseous Form except that you may use your Elemental Blast and any Elemental Essence and Blast Shape Channels (but not other Channels) in this form.

    Illusory Creation: 5th level
    You create an illusionary image as the spell Persistent Image except that a creature gains no bonus on their save if they are informed it is illusionary. Additionally you may use this spell to create an illusion of a creature on the Summon Monster I-IV or Summon Nature's Ally I-IV list. When used this way you create a partially real illusion of the creature (as Shadow Conjuration but only 10% real) which lacks all of the original's spell-like abilities. You may only have one illusionary creature created through this spell at a time.

    Invigorating Blast: 5th level
    Your elemental is infused with positive energy. Any creature healed by positive energy is healed by this blast, and any healing that would put them over their maximum hp is gained as temporary hit points, and they gain a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls and all saving throws. The temporary hit points provided by this ability stack with themselves and any creature whose temporary hit points from this ability are greater than their maximum hp explodes in a burst of pure light. The temporary hp and morale bonus from this ability both only last 1 minute. Creatures harmed by positive energy instead take full damage and suffer a -1 penalty to attack rolls and saving throws for 1 minute. No creature may be healed, gain temporary hit points, or gain morale bonuses from this blast used by a single jinnblood more than 3 times per day.

    Lightning Wisp: 6th Level
    You create a small ball of electricity which moves under its own volition. Once per round this ball of lightning strikes out at a creature within your melee reach moving slightly to touch the target. This is resolved by you making a melee touch attack (as a free action limited once per round) and on a successful attack the target takes half the damage of your (non-focused) elemental blast but it is electricity damage. The lightning wisp is truly merely an extension of yourself but may be damaged separately either by area of effect or being specifically targeted; it is immune to mind-affecting effects, uses your AC and saves, has 3 hp per jinnblood level you possess, but does not benefit from any (improved) evasion or mettle you may possess.

    Oozing Bulwark: 5th Level
    As Wall of Water except that any creature beginning its turn inside the wall or passing through the wall takes 2d6 + ½ Caster level (max 2d6 + 10) acid damage.

    Planar Seal: 6th Level
    For 24 hours any attempt to teleport to or within 10-ft of you per caster level, or to travel interdimensionally within this distance requires a Will save or it fails and they receive 1d6 damage per 2 caster levels (max 10d6). Even on a success any creature finds its arrival at its location delayed by 2 round (as per Anticipate TeleportSpC) and they receive the same damage as on a failed save; you are aware of these creatures as per Anticipate TeleportSpC. Each creature affected by the effect must make the Will save to appear (this means that if a Lv 15 wizard teleports into/out of the area with 4 allies it is possible some are stuck behind while others arrive at their destination 1 round later) and receives the damage. In addition any creature summoned or called into the area (by a summoning or calling effect) must make the Will save or fail to appear and even on a success appears 1 round late and receives 10d6 damage. A creature teleporting from within this area to another location within this area only needs to make one save and only suffers from one instance of damage.
    You and up to ½ your Wisdom bonus (minimum 0) creatures other than yourself which are within 30-ft of you when you activated this ability are immune to its effects. Any creatures summoned (but not called) by an effect created by you are also unaffected by this ability.

    Rocky Rampart: 5th Level
    As Wall of Stone but its duration is permanent and creating a new wall destroys your old one. In addition creatures whose alignment matches yours standing on the wall gain DR 2/-.

    Shield of Winds: 6th Level
    Ranged attacks made against you suffer a penalty equal to half your Wisdom modifier, this penalty is increased by 4 for ranged touch attacks. This effect lasts for 24 hours.

    Stony Blast: 6th Level
    Your Elemental Blast deals magical bludgeoning and slashing (DR applies as if it were not a spell-like ability) and ignores SR. In addition any creature struck by it must make a Fort save or be pushed 5-ft away from you (as per a bull rush) +5-ft per every 3 points by which they failed their Fortitude save.

    Voice of the Elements: 6th level
    This functions as the spell Stone Tell but has a casting time of 1 round and allows you to speak with water and fire as well as stone.

    Voidsight, Greater: 5th level
    You gain Blindsight out to 60-ft for 24 hours.

    Water Step: 6th
    You may teleport, as Greater Teleport from any body of water that you are in contact with and which you could fully submerge yourself within to any other body of water that you could be fully submerged within and is within 100 miles per caster level.

    Winds of Dust: 5th Level
    You create a cloud of fine dust which swirls around you. While the cloud is not thick enough to impair vision any creature within 10-ft of you, other than yourself and up to ½ your Wisdom bonus (minimum 0) creatures designated when you activate this ability or re-designated as a standard action, take 1d6 damage/4 caster levels; a successful Fort save (made each time damage would be dealt) negates that instance of damage, despite allowing a Fort save this ability deals damage to creatures without Constitution scores. Any creature reduced to 0 hp by this effect has their body destroyed as per the Disintegrate spell. This effect lasts 24 hours.

    Elemental Artillery: 8th level
    Your elemental blast’s range increases to line of sight.

    Elemental Burst, Greater: 8th level
    Your elemental blast becomes a 20-ft radius burst centered somewhere within 600-ft.

    Maelstrom Warp: 9th level
    As a move action you may teleport up to your Wisdom bonus in creatures (minimum 1) within 30-ft of you to any other location within 30-ft of you. You may not place any creature in an occupied square with this ability, nor may you place them on a surface unable to support their weight. This ability lasts for 24 hours.

    Planar Void: 7th level
    You call upon planar energies to banish a creature from your sight. Target creature within close (25-ft +5-ft/2 caster levels) range must make a Will save. On a failed save the creature is immediately transported to a random plane. Summoned creatures suffer a -8 penalty on this saving throw, and called creatures suffer a -4 penalty.

    Pyre of Fantasy: 8th level
    This ability functions as a targeted Greater Dispel Magic on one creature within 60-ft, but after all effects are dispelled they burst into red-gold flames taking 2d6 fire damage per spell successfully dispelled and if at least 5 spells were dispelled must make a Fort save or be blinded for 1d4 rounds. This ability may not be used to counterspell.

    Overwhelming Blast: 8th level
    Your elemental blast is infused with the essence of all the Inner Planes, a sweeping, burning power that overwhelms the very spirits of those struck by it. A creature hit by an elemental blast improved with this invocation must make a Will save or cower for 1 round.

    Varell Blast: 8th level
    Your elemental blast is infused with the powers of the negative quasielemental planes as they represent the breakdown of reality. Mimicking the effects of Varell crystals, your blast ignores spell resistance but deals magical slashing and piercing damage (damage reduction applies). Your elemental blast deals lethal damage to creatures, regardless of any regeneration they may possess, and any creature slain by your blast is harder to revive. Any attempts to restore a creature killed by a varell blast to life requires a caster level check with a DC of 11 + your Caster Level. Incorporeal creatures are immune to a varell blast.

    Walker through Doorways: 8th level
    As Ethereal Jaunt except you may use your Elemental Blast to interact with conterminous planes, but doing so makes you semi-present on that plane for 1 round rendering you visible and able to be damaged as if incorporeal. Each time you use this invocation you suffer 2 points of Strength burn, and cannot use this invocation if your Strength is 2 or less.

    I ran out of space in the first post (just barely for now but there's decent odds of more to come) of them so split it into two.

    Elemental Hunter: 2nd level
    Your Elemental Blast automatically hits without any need to roll an attack ignoring any cover or concealment less than total.

    Fire’s Swiftness: 2nd level
    Target creature within 30-ft gains the benefits of a Haste spell until the start of your next turn. Activating this ability is a swift action.

    Healing Wind: 2nd level
    As an immediate action you may prevent 1d8 + caster level (max 15) that is currently being dealt to an ally other than yourself within 30-ft. This is a positive energy effect and deals damage to undead (even if they are not being dealt damage), but allows a Will save for half.

    Potent Blast: 2nd level
    Your Elemental Blast deals an additional 1d6 damage +1d6/12 caster levels.

    Stone’s Touch: 2nd level
    You charge your touch with the weighty power of the earth. On a successful touch attack the target suffers a penalty to its Dexterity equal to 1d6 + your Wisdom modifier for 10 minutes/caster level; this penalty may not reduce a target’s Dexterity to below 1, and multiple applications do not stack.

    Diamond Flesh: 4th level
    As an immediate action gain damage resistance equal to your caster level penetrated by adamantine until the start of your next turn.

    Last Gasp: 4th level
    You channel the power of vacuum pulling the air from the target’s lungs. One target within 25-ft +5-ft/2 caster levels must make Fort save or begin to suffocate. During the first round of this effect the target is staggered and cannot speak, but does not fall unconscious (unlike normal suffocation). Afterwards they must make a 2nd Fort save, if they succeed this effect immediately ends, if they fail they are reduced to -1 hp, knocked unconscious, and are dying. On the next round they must make a 3rd Fort save, if they succeed this effect ends (although they remain at -1 hp), if they fail they die.

    Oozing Blast: 4th level
    Your Elemental Blast deals acid damage and its damage is increased by 1d6. On a successful hit the target must make a Fort save or be Nauseated for 1 round.

    Thundering Blast: 4th level
    Your Elemental Blast deals Sonic damage and its damage is increased by 1d6. Any creature struck by this effect must make a Fortitude save or be permanently deafened.

    Wings of the Wind: 4th level
    Up to 1 target/3 caster levels within 30-ft of you gains a fly speed of 60-ft (good) for 1 round/3 caster levels.

    Bar Death: 6th level
    As an immediate action, you fill a target within 30-ft of you with positive energy preventing them from succumbing to death for a time. For 1 round/2 caster levels the target can continue functioning even if killed (due to a death effect, hit point loss, etc) or at negative hit points and any ability damage or burn (but not drain) the target is suffering is temporarily negated. At the end of this effect the target takes the full effects of any abilities delayed by this, dying if they had been affected by a death effect or are still at negative hit points, and all ability damage and burn being reapplied (even that received while this effect was active); if a creature receives an effect which heals damage or ability damage it can still be healed and may potentially prevent death from one of these causes.

    Draining Touch: 6th level
    Your touch is filled with the draining hunger of the Negative Energy Plane. As part of this channel make a touch attack. If you hit you deal 1d6 damage per caster level and gain that many temporary hit points, these temporary hit points last for 1 minute.

    Elemental Storm: 6th level
    Your Elemental Blast affects a 15-ft radius within 150-ft. You may designate any number of squares in this area of being unaffected by your Elemental Blast. Creatures in this area may make a Reflex save for half damage.

    Magmatic Blood: 6th level
    You transmute the blood of a single target within 60-ft to magma. This deals 1d8 fire damage per two caster levels and the target suffers 2d6 Constitution damage, this ability damage is dealt even to creatures immune to fire. The target may make a Fortitude save to half both the fire and Constitution damage.

    Volcanic Blast: 6th level
    Your Elemental Blast is a blob of viscous lava, which deals an additional 1d6 damage and all damage dealt by your blast is fire damage. In addition at the beginning of your next turn the target takes ½ as much damage as they received from the initial blast.

    Blaze of Life: 9th level
    You channel the power of the Positive Energy plane into your target letting life flow into them overloading them with its pure force. The target must make a Fortitude save, on a success the ability ends immediately. If the target fails their save the target dies, and all living creatures within 60-ft heal 4d8+Caster level hp (or take damage if they are undead). Each creature may make a Will save to halve their healing (or damage for undead). This is a death effect, but creatures of the undead type may be affected despite their non-ability score for Constitution and type based immunity to death effects.

    Elemental Maelstrom: 9th level
    Your Elemental Blast strikes any number of creatures within 150-ft of you. You may select targets as you desire, and while this does not require an attack roll they are allowed a Reflex save for half.

    Megaflare: 8th level
    You release a massive burst of flame at a designated location within 400-ft. All creatures in a 40-ft radius burst take 120 damage, but a successful Reflex save halves this damage. A creature that fails their Reflex save is also badly burned suffering a -4 penalty to attack rolls, damage, and ability or skill checks for 1 minute. Creatures that do not feel pain (primarily undead or constructs) or with fire resistance 30 or immunity do not suffer this penalty.

    Mistcage: 8th level
    This functions as the windowless cell version of Forcecage except that it is just large enough to contain the target creature and can be destroyed with a DC 30 Strength check as full round action, and can be destroyed by damage but has Hardness 15 and 10 hp per caster level. The duration of this effect is 10 minutes per caster level.

    Tornado Blast: 9th level
    Your elemental blast carries the raw power of an elemental storm sending creatures it strikes flying. Your elemental blast deals an additional 1d6 damage and any creature damaged by your elemental blast must make a Fortitude save at -4 or be sent flying, moving 10-ft away from you per die of damage dealt by your elemental blast before any doubling due to Focused Blast, this movement is halved if the creature successfully saved for half damage (if the blast allowed a save) they also half the distance they are sent. If a creature strikes a solid object they take 1d6 damage per 10-ft of movement remaining from the blast.

    If combined with Elemental Bombardment creatures are blasted away from the center of the bombardment effect instead of directly towards the ground.

    Create Feast: 3rd level
    With a wave of a hand a jinnblood can create a filling meal (including drink) for 1 (medium) creature, plus one creature per 2 caster levels. The food created by this spell can be rich (though not truly exotic) fare of your choice, and can include wines, ales, or other beverages beyond merely water; while these beverages may have a mild alcoholic effect they never cause actual drunkenness. In addition it may include a small dessert. Any creature eating an entire meal of this food gains a +1 morale bonus on saves versus fear and ingested poisons, this bonus increases by 1 for every 5 caster levels and lasts for 1 hour + 1 hour/2 caster levels. A creature also gains half the bonus they gain to saves as a morale bonus to attack and weapon damage rolls for the same duration. Should quality become important any Profession (Cook or Chef) checks made in conjunction with it are made at a +8 circumstance bonus.

    Earthgrasp Blast: 3rd level
    Your Elemental Blast roots a creature to the ground. Your Elemental Blast deals an additional 1d6 damage +1d6/12 caster levels and any creature touching the ground damaged by it must make a Reflex save or be rooted in place unable to move from their square for 1 round and have any land, climb, and burrow speeds they possess reduced to ½ their normal value for 1 round per 5 caster levels after they are no longer immobilized. On a successful save their land, climb, and burrow speeds are simply reduced to ½ their normal value for 1 round per 5 caster levels (minimum 1).

    Elemental Companion: Variable level (spell level is equal to ½ caster level rounded up)
    You summon a small elemental, it remains with you until destroyed, banished, 24 hours have passed, or you use this ability again.
    At Lv 6 you may instead summon a medium elemental. At Lv 8 you may summon up to a large elemental. At Lv 11 this becomes a huge elemental. At Lv 14 this becomes a greater elemental, and at Lv 18 this becomes an elder elemental.

    Control Size: 5th level
    Like a jann or an efreet a jinnborn has some control over the size of creatures, both herself and others. Target willing creature (within 60-ft) grows or shrinks two size categories. This functions as an Expansion power augmented to grow two size categories or as a Compression power augmented to shrink two size categories. This ability lasts 1 minute per caster level.

    Devouring Smog: 4th level
    You conjure a 20-ft radius cloud within 100-ft. The smog acts as a Fog Cloud but movement through the smog is reduced to half rate. In addition the smog deals 1d6 damage +1d6/4 caster levels to any creature entering it or starting their turn within it, other than you, and it attempts to grapple any such creature (using your caster level for its BAB and having a +12 size bonus to the check). The smog can be dispersed by a Gust of Wind spell or similar strength wind but will reform 1 round later. If there are no creatures within the smog it will move 10-ft a round towards the nearest creature other than you at the start of your turn. The smog lasts for 1 round per caster level before vanishing.

    Dusty Blast: 5th level
    Any creature struck by your Elemental Blast must make a Fortitude save or take an additional damage equal to the damage dealt by your Elemental Blast; all damage from your elemental blast is considered a disintegration effect and not Planar Damage. Any object struck by this blast is disintegrated if it fails its save, this affects a 10-ft cube if it is a single target blast but if it is an area of effect blast it affects any unattended object within the area but they still block line of effect and does not disintegrate any portion that would be outside of the effect or more than 10-ft from the source of effect (whichever results in less disintegration). If this Elemental Essence is used in conjunction with any Blast Shape that causes a blast to strike any number of creatures in an area (such as Eldritch Doom, or Elemental Quake) it has no effect on objects although may still affect Undead and Constructs. If this Elemental Essence is used in conjunction with the Elemental Bombardment blast shape damage from this blast does not carry through objects that were disintegrated (the rules for this Essence’s interaction with cover take precedence).

    World Walker’s Gate: 6th level
    1 minute to activate. Creates a portal to an Inner Plane of your choice or the Prime which is large enough to allow a creature up to 1 size category larger than you to pass through at a time (though multiple may pass through in a single round); the accuracy of this portal is the same as Plane Shift placing you 5-500 miles away from the intended destination. This portal remains open for 1 round/5 caster levels or until you spend a standard action to dismiss it. Any creature passing through the portal benefits from the effects of Avoid Planar Effects (Spell Compendium page 19) for 10 minutes per caster level.

    Bestow Elemental Form: 6th level
    Touched creature becomes an Elemental with one of the Fire, Water, Earth, or Air subtype. They gain elemental immunities (and any traits of the granted subtype) and the following abilities based on chosen subtype:

    Glacial Blast: 7th level
    Your Elemental Blast deals cold damage instead of planar damage and its damage is increased by 3d6. Any creature damaged by this blast must make a Fortitude save or be stunned for 1 round and take 4 Dexterity damage. On a successful save they still take 4 Dexterity damage.

    Jinn Statues: 6th level
    You may use Permanent Image as the spell, but if you create an image of yourself you may observe things as if you were at its location by concentrating on it, but while doing so you are blind and deaf in your own body and any special senses do not function from your body but do from the image.

    Shining Rebirth: 7th level
    As an immediate action you may heal yourself of harmful effects as the Heal spell, but it heals damage equal to your maximum hit and if used when you are being hit by an effect may heal its effects as they are applied (effectively preventing them).

    Spirit of the Flames: 7th level
    Allies within 60-ft have their weapons ignite with flames which deal half the damage of your Elemental Blast the first time they hit each round. In addition when you use this ability you may use one at-will Elemental Essence that is imbued into their attacks, but its damage is half fire and half whatever it normally would be with that Elemental Essence. This ability lasts up to ½ Class Level rounds, but you must maintain concentration as a swift action and if you are damaged while concentrating on this ability you must make a Concentration check or lose the spell. As this is not actually a use of your Elemental Blast you may not use Focused Blast with this.

    Ash Flow: 9th level
    You conjure forth heavy soot, the final, dead remains of fire once energy and heat have all faded away, covering the battlefield and your enemies with it. You may select up to 300 5-ft cubes to fill with ash, up to 800-ft away, this soot may be created in the air falling to the ground and knocking down creatures in its path. The soot deals no falling damage, but any creature who is touched by the soot (other than yourself) takes 1d8 cold damage per caster level, and a creature whose space is filled to a height equal to the side of one of its bases (5-ft for small/medium, 10-ft for large, 15-ft for huge, 20-ft for gargantuan, 30-ft for colossal). A buried creature can free itself with a DC 20 Strength check as a full-round action, and can be dug free by others (a single creature working alone requires 1 minute to free a trapped creature). A trapped creature is unable to move, and cannot cast spells with somatic components, and any material components must be in hand. A successful Reflex save halves the damage and prevents the burial.
    The soot remains for 1 round per caster level causing any square it covers to become difficult terrain and any creature entering it or beginning their turn there to take 1d6+Caster Level cold damage, a creature buried in the ash instead takes 4d6+Caster Level cold damage each round.

    Call Monolith: 9th level
    You summon forth an elemental monolith which appears with at least one space adjacent to yours. It fights obediently for you, obeying your commands for 1 round/2 caster levels.

    Elemental Bombardment: 9th level
    Your elemental blast rains from the sky. Your elemental blast hits everything within a 1 mile tall, 1 mile radius cylinder centered on you; a Reflex save halves this damage. This attack strikes from above so being beneath cover can prevent this damage, but it deals damage to objects normally and if it deals enough damage to destroy the cover any remaining damage (if the damage to the object is halved or quartered before hardness subtract its hardness 2 or 4 times respectively and its hp 2 or 4 times) is dealt to anything beneath it.

    Ice Clone: 9th level
    When you use this ability you conjure snow and ice in the form of a facsimile of yourself. When you create this icy double make a disguise check at +10, any creature dealing with it which makes a Spot check that beats this check notices its snowy composition. You share your senses with this icy duplicate able to sense what is happening around your body and its at all times. In addition you may control the icy duplicate from any distance including interplanar ones. You may only have either body act during a round, and only the body which last acted can take immediate actions (or free actions which may be taken out of turn) and if they take an immediate action it locks them into place as the body to act during the next round. The icy duplicate uses all of your stats but has only 80% of your max hp, and gets a -2 to AC, initiative, and Reflex saves (due to time lag in control), its type is elemental with the air and cold subtypes (in addition to any subtypes you may or may not have), and any limited use abilities used by the duplicate are also considered expended by you. The icy duplicate also duplicates all your gear, but any item removed from it for longer than 6 seconds becomes a puddle of water, and any expenditure of daily, charged, or one use items is reflected in their original counterpart (a consumed potion becomes inert, a consumed scroll becomes simply fancy writing, etc). Effects that you activate on yourself are applied to your ice clone as if cast upon it as well, as are any effects active on you at the time of its creation. Mind-affecting effects are also applied to both you and the ice clone equally. An ice clone lasts 24 hours and cannot be dispelled short of a Mage’s Disjunction or other equivalent effect. You may only have one ice clone at a time and while one is extent attempting to create another one simply destroys the former.

    Jinn's Wish: 8th level
    You utter a wish bending reality to your will. This functions as a Limited Wish spell but may copy a sorcerer/wizard spell of up to 7th level, or another spell of up to 6th level. In addition you may use this ability to undo an effect that specifies it needs a Wish spell but doing so requires a DC 30 caster level check. On a failure you may not try to remove that effect again for 30 days.

    Petrifying Blast: 8th level
    Any creature struck by your Elemental Blast must make a Fort save or be petrified (this is an instantaneous effect). In addition even if the target successfully saves against this effect all speeds they have are reduced by 10-ft for 1 round per 2 caster levels.

    Waves of Death: 9th level
    You bombard enemies with wave after wave of negative energy attempting to extinguish their life force directly. You may target up to 1/2 your Wisdom bonus (minimum 1) creatures within 60-ft of you. Each creature targeted must make a Fortitude save or die. On a successful save they still take 3d6 + Caster Level negative energy damage.

    Ebon Curtain: 4th level
    Creates a wall up to one 10-ft square per caster level which blocks line of sight.

Any creature passing through the wall takes 1d6 cold damage per 2 caster levels. Duration: 1 round/caster level. You may only have one Ebon Curtain active at a time. Magical light with a(n effective) spell level of 7 or higher suppress the wall within their radius of bright light.

    Shadow Sight: 4th level

    Voice of Shadow: 3rd level
    Shadows connect all things in the world. You may communicate with one creature that you are familiar with (has met personally and interacted with for several hours of time) within 1 mile per caster level.

Both you and the target must be within 30-ft of a shadow (not in total darkness, or an area with omnipresent light).

    Shadowstep Boots: 3rd level
    Your footsteps carry you through the world of shadows as easily as the world of light. While this ability is active you may teleport yourself ½ your land speed as a move action, as long as neither you nor the destination are not in direct sunlight (a daylight spell does not qualify for this purpose). This ability lasts 24 hours.

    Shadow Warp: 7th level
    You step from one location to another moving instantly across the world. This functions as Greater Teleport but has a 1 full round casting time. In addition you may choose to not move yourself but teleport any creature you are familiar with (know firsthand and have spent hours in the company of) to yourself; such a creature is allowed a Will save to resist this effect and if they succeed are immune to it for the next 24 hours.

    Encounter
    Lesser:

    Last Gasp:
    As Jinnblood invocation.

    Shadow Gate: 5th level
    As World Walker’s Gate but may only open to the Plane of Shadow or the Prime Material Plane. It is also more accurate arriving 5-100 (5d20) miles away from the targeted location in an area of shadowy illumination (even if only a 5-ft square of it); if there is no shadowy illumination at the area indicated by the roll then it will open in the nearest shadowy area to the randomly designated point.

    Midnight Cloak: 4th level
    Shadow wraps around you deflecting baleful magic. Activating this invocation is an immediate action, and the next spell or spell-like ability that targets you before the start of your next turn suffers a 50% miss chance (Blind-Fight applies). This ability has no effect against spells that do not target (fireball) or spells that require an attack roll (rays, touch spells).

    Greater:
    Witching Hour: 7th level
    You may activate this ability as a swift action. You step from time into its hollow shadow allowing you a fleeting moment to act during which others are unaware. This functions as Time Stop but with a duration of 1 round.

    Draining Touch:
    As Jinnblood invocation.

    Grasp of Shadows: 6th level
    This invocation functions like the spell Hold Monster but each time the target fails its Will save (including the first) they take 3d6 cold damage.

    Spell Shadow: 8th level
    Copy one spell (or spell-like ability) 7th level or lower that was cast since the end of your last turn. This copy uses your caster level and your Wisdom or Charisma (whichever is higher) to determine any save DC required, and its duration is reduced to 1 round/4 caster levels unless it already has a shorter duration.

    Special:
    Shadow Body: 8th level; Primal/Dark grade
    At-will. You gain the Incorporeal subtype for 1 round/2 caster levels. Each time you activate this ability you suffer 2 points of Strength damage ignoring any immunity or resistance you may have. If your Strength is reduced to 2 or less (ignoring the non-ability while incorporeal) you may no longer activate this ability.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XIX - Inner Might

    Transelemental Scholar

    "Hm...what if I mixed Ooze with positive energy?

    Tanselemental Scholars are mages that focus their studies on the endless power of the Inner Planes. You can tap into that limitless magic to produce magical effects at the tip of a hat, much like a Warlock or Dragonfire Adept, but make no mistake, you are a scholar, and your magic comes not from pacts or innate magical power, but from study.

    Adventures: Transelementalists adventure for many of the same reasons as Wizards might, often searching for strange, arcane lore.

    Characteristics: Transelemental Scholars are often across the board with their personalities. Some are wild and fiery, some are calm as a tranquil lake, some stand stony and stoic, others blow on the wind, and anywhere in between.

    Alignment: Tranelementalists can be of any alignment. Those focusing on fire or air tend to be more chaotic, while those focusing on earth or water tend to be lawful. Those who lean to good prefer positive energy, while evil ones prefer touse negative energy.

    Religion: Transelementalists tend to be rather agnostic, while still others actually come to worship the inner planes themselves. Those that worship deities usually worship deities that watch over the elements (e.g. Kossuth in the Forgotten Realms)

    Background: Transelemental Scholars often start as apprentices to wizards, especially apprentices to elemental mages like Djinn, and then decide that they want to pursue the magic of the elements in its purity. Others have some sort of contact with the inner planes that drives them to study the elements.

    Races: Most any race capable of casting spells can enter this class, but it calls strongly to Genasi and other planetouched races.

    Other Classes: They often butt heads with Wizards and Sorcerers, finding their less focused approach to magic foolish. They often have a grudging respect for druids, seeing their reverence for nature as an indirect and highly superstitious use of elemental magic. Clerics of elemental deities often have very strong relationships, either friendly or adversarial, depending on their own personal elemental preferences.

    Role: Transelemental Scholars are best used as damage-dealers and support characters, with their more destructive elements being complemented by their gentler ones.

    Adaptation: Perhaps they are just Genasi with a powerful connection to their plane of origin (stiffer elemental restrictions), or they worship elemental gods (their invocations become no longer subject to armor failure and are based off of Wisdom). Alternately, you could make them scions of the transitive planes (Astral, Ethereal, Shadow and Mirror), changing their abilities (and available invocations) to match the properties of those planes.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Transelemental Scholars have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Intelligence is the chief ability of this class, determining the saves of your invocations. After that, Dexterity and/or Constitution is very important for survival.
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d6
    Starting Age: As Wizard
    Starting Gold: As Wizard

    Class Skills
    The Transelemental Scholar's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are
    Appraise, Concentration, Craft, Decipher Script, Heal, Intimidate, Jump, Knowledge[Any], Listen, Perform, Profession, Search, Speak Language, Spellcraft, Spot, Swim, Tumble and Use Magic Device

    Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Transelemental Scholar.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: You are proficient in all Simple weapons, as well as light armor. Your invocations are not subject to failure due to light armor.

    Invocations (Sp): Transelementalists learn to cast invocations which are subject to arcane spell failure conditions, much like a Warlock, a Jinnblood, or a Dragonfire Adept. However, they do not tap into any internal power when casting these invocations, and they learn them through intense study of how to manipulate the energies of the inner planes. As a result, the save DCs of these invocations are based upon Intelligence. A Transelemental Scholar's Invocations are rather odd ducks in that they actually possess schools, like spells do. These are all elemental schools, and each pertain to an inner plane. You can actually take Spell Focus, Arcane Defense, and other related feats for these elemental schools. Some invocations pertain to a paraelemental, quasielemental, or meta-elemental (see next post) plane, and are thus multiple schools, being the elements that make up that plane (Ash is Fire and Negative, for example). These receive the benefits of Spell Focus and similar feats do not stack unless explicitly stated otherwise.

    Exotic Arcana: Your magic is odd, being that it is like the spells of a wizard, but also radically different. A Transelemental Scholar qualifies for feats, prestige classes, or anything else that requires the following:
    • An arcane or unspecified caster level.
    • Possessing the ability to cast a specific spell which is replicated by an invocation you know.
    • Knowing a spell of a specific descriptor, provided you know an invocation of the corresponding elemental school:
      {table=head]Descriptor|Elemental School
      Acid|Decay, Ooze, Salt
      Air|Air, Vacuum, Lightning
      Cold|Ice, Vacuum
      Chaotic|Change, Entropy
      Darkness|Vacuum, Negative Energy
      Death|Negative Energy, Decay, Stagnation
      Earth|Dust, Earth, Mineral
      Electricity|Lightning
      Evil|Negative Energy
      Fear|N/A
      Fire|Ash, Fire, Radiance
      Force|N/A
      Good|Positive Energy
      Language-Dependent|N/A
      Lawful|Shelter, Imprisonment
      Light|Radiance
      Mind-Affecting|N/A
      Sonic|N/A
      Water|Salt, Steam, Water[/table]
    • The Infernal Adept feat, which you may use to take invocations from the Warlock or Dragonfire Adept list. You must still find a trainer unless you are fey-blooded (for Warlock invocations) or dragon-blooded (for Dragonfire Adept invocations).
    • Additionally, they may replace the arcane or divine requirement for Mystic Theurge or similar classes with Transelemental Scholar Caster Level 3, and advance it as if it were a class normally advanced by that class, advancing caster level and invocations known as appropriate.


    Elemental Study (Ex): Your studies into the inner planes grant you an impressive knowledge of them and their residents. As a result, you gain a bonus equal to 1/2 your class level on Knowledge[Nature] checks pertaining to any plane; [Planes] checks pertaining to the inner planes; Diplomacy, Handle Animal and Sense Motive checks against creatures from those planes or with elemental subtypes; and Survival checks while on those planes.

    Energy Resistance (Su): All good elementalists learn how to protect themselves from the energies they control, and the Transelemental scholar is no exception. At level 4, you gain resistance 2 to Acid, Cold, Electric, Fire and Sonic. At levels 10, 16 and 20 the resistance increases to 5, 10 and 20 respectively.

    Planar Focus (Ex or Su): At every 5th level, you gain a special trick pertaining to your studies. At each level you receive this class feature, you may choose one of the following abilities. You may not select an ability more than once unless the ability specifically states otherwise.
    • Evasion (Ex): You fill yourself with the energies of the plane of Air, granting you Evasion as the Rogue class feature. You can select this a second time, improving it to Improved Evasion.
    • Energy Buffer (Su): Once per day, you can perform a ritual to imbue one touched creature per class level with an energy resistance similar to that of the protection from energy spell, except that it absorbs 20 damage per level, up to 200 points at level 10.
    • Mettle (Ex): Your connection to the plane of Earth leaves you incredibly toughened. You receive the Mettle ability.
    • Planar Blink (Su): Three times per day, you can teleport as with a dimension door spell. However, a random effect occurs at either your point of origin or the point to which you teleport Roll a d6 to determine what the effect is. If it requires a save, the DC is 10+1/2 your class level+your Intelligence.
      {table=head]d6 roll|Result
      1|A burst of flames deals 1d4 damage per level to all those caught in a 10-foot burst (reflex half)
      2|A wave of water gushes out. All those adjacent to the space in which it originatedare bull-rushed by the water, which has an effective strength of 10 + 1/2 your class level.
      3|A burst of wind knocks prone all adjacent creatures who fail a reflex save prone.
      4|The ground cracks, immobilizing adjacent creatures who fail a Reflex save for 1d4 rounds.
      5|All adjacent living creatures are healed of up to 2d10 hit points, and excess is granted as temporary HP for 1d6 rounds. Undead instead take the healing as damage.
      6|All adjacent undead creatures are healed of up to 2d10 hit points, and excess is granted as temporary HP for 1d6 rounds. Living creatures instead take the healing as damage.[/table]
    • Energy Conversion (Su): Three times per day, when casting a spell or invocation that deals energy damage, you can increase the casting time as a Sorcerer using a metamagic would to change the damage type to Acid, Cold, Fire, Electric or Sonic. This does not apply to damage not already of one of those types, with the sole exception of magic missile and similar spells.
    • Elemental Movement(Ex): You gain either a swim speed, a climb speed, a burrowing speed, or a fly speed (clumsy maneuverability) equal to half your base movement speed. You can select this ability multiple times, gaining a different type of movement speed each time.


    Bonus Feats: At every 3rd level, you can choose one of the following feats for which you qualify as a bonus feat: Arcane Defense, Spell Focus, Greater Spell Focus, Ability Focus, any Meta-Spell-like Ability feat, Extra Invocation, or Infernal Adept.

    Elemental Apotheosis (Su): Your type changes to elemental with up to three of the following subtypes of your choosing, plus the native subtype: Air, Chaotic, Cold, Earth, Evil, Fire, Good, Lawful, and Water.
    Additionally, you gain complete immunity to a single energy type, preferably one pertaining to one of your new subtypes. You no longer suffer aging penalties, although you still die when your time is up. Finally, once per day, you can cast an Air, Earth, Fire and Water invocation simultaneously. They need not be intended for the same target, but they must all be of the Lesser or Least grades.

    Reserved Post for Invocations and Meta-elemental planes

    Meta-elemental planes
    Spoiler
    Show
    are little-known planes that come where two elemental planes meet an energy plane. These planes are hard to find, and are rarely inhabited, possessing next to no intelligent native life. They are the source of more abstract concepts, the individual elements being too dilute to really take a physical form. They tend to possess traits of all three elements, and often have a blended landscape.

    Air/Water/Positive: Change:
    The plane of Change is inherently chaotic, but not as wild as Limbo. Creatures here evolve faster, traditions change more readily, and change is, overall, more rapid. It is a world of water and air, with storms between the two being fairly frequent. Occasionally, you may find an island, but rarely will it harbor life. The water itself, however has all sorts of bizarre and exotic sea life, from tiny, many-finned fish to great, slender cetaceans. The seas are brimming with life. The waters here carry a certain restorative property, and living creatures that drink or breathe it frequently over a period of 4d4 weeks gain fast healing 2 for up to a month after they leave the plane, or indefinitely if they remain in the plane.

    Water/Earth/Positive: Growth
    This plane is a wild, overgrown forest. There, life abounds, with all sorts of simians and exotic reptiles, but the sky has never been seen, due to the thick, high canopy. Some believe there is no sky, that the trees just keep going up forever. The ground is always in a stat of perpetual saturation, leaving the ground moist and muddy. This mud is packed with nutrients, with an amount as little as a cup (about 1/4 a liter) being enough to feed a medium creature for a full day, leaving them utterly sated except in cases of magical hunger.

    Earth/Fire/Positive: Shelter
    This plane is warm, made up of natural cave systems, feels homey, as if it was designed to provide shelter. There is an occasional fire, burning from a small pocket of natural gases, but it rarely gets large enough to become a danger. The animals here are largely docile burrowing creatures such as giant moles. With the exception of the occasional cave fungus, there's little autotrophic life, which begs the question of what the creatures there eat. Sleep is unnecessary here, and creatures can choose not to be affected by magical sleep, and exhaustion is impossible (exhausting effects only render targets fatigued).

    Fire/Air/Positive: Freedom
    This plane is an endless sea of sky, much like the plane of Air, but there are many islands that look to be composed of glass. This is actually solidified light. There are three suns, which travel together across the skyscape, occasionally aligning. When they do, anything not native to the plane is at risk of burning to death. However, on the few islands of earth and soil, plants grow at a prodigious rate.

    Air/Water/Negative: Stagnation
    On the plane of stagnation, nothing changes. The plane is cold and dark, plunged into an eternal winter where no new plants grow, and few animals are born (but always enough to maintain current populations). The plane is harsh to outsiders, especially those who bring change. Hypothermia is a constant hazard, with a cumulative -1 per day penalty to saves to stave off hypothermia.

    Water/Earth/Negative: Decay
    This fetid swamp is filled with parasites, vermin, and diseases. The endless bog that is this plane reeks with the fetid stench of death and decomposition. Those entering the plane must make a DC 25 fortitude save or be rendered nauseated for 1d6 minutes. Every week you spend in this plane, you must make a DC 35 Survival check or be afflicted with a random disease (although you can still attempt to make any appropriate saves against it).

    Earth/Fire/Negative: Entropy
    This plane is in a constant state of volcanic upheaval, with earthquakes and eruptions a constant danger. The air is full of ash and soot, obscuring the vision of all creatures not equipped to deal with it, similarly to an obscuring mist spell. Every 1d4 minutes, all creatures on the plane are subjected to the effects of an earthquake spell as appropriate to where they are.

    Fire/Air/Negative: Imprisonment
    This stifling plane is a boiling soup of winds and flame, with only a few pockets of survivable territory, deep inside half-molten spheres of rock. The creatures within are paranoid and violent, rendered half-mad by their entrapment in these tiny shells, barely eking out a resistance in this inhospitable plane. Any creature caught in the firestorm outside take 20d6 fire damage every round, and if they are standing on the outside of a shell, they can make a DC 35 Climb check to hold onto the shell (creatures with a climb speed need not make a check). If you fail, or are not on the surface of a shell, you are caught drifting on the firewinds. Each day, you (or a cloud of your ashes) have a 1% chance of encountering a shell or other object in the storm

    The Planar Infused

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    Fire and Ice, Light and Darkness, The Sky and The Earth. All things are opposed by something, pupil. Focus your mind, your soul, and draw one of the elements into you—and in doing so, call its opposite into the world around you.—Hafez Nullrune, Planar Infused

    Planar Infused are individuals harness the power of the inner planes while still maintaining the balance between them.

    Adventures: Those who choose the path of a Planar Infused might adventure for enlightenment, or to correct an imbalance. Those who are born with the gift adventure for their own reasons, and as such their reasons for adventuring are as varied as people are.

    Characteristics: Any given Planar Infused will Embody at least one element and Unleash another. The element Embodied grants defensive boons to the Infused, and the element Unleashed is used to make direct attacks against an enemy.

    Alignment: Planar Infused come from a variety of alignments, but those who seek balance are usually True Neutral.

    Religion: Planar Infused often worship gods of balance, or in lieu of that the elements themselves.

    Background: One who follows the path of a Planar Infused often learn under a wandering mentor, while one who innately possesses the ability simply discovers it through trial and error.

    Races: While most races can be planar infused, beings who are tied to one of the 4 elements may not Unleash or Embody the element that they are tied to. Those without souls also cannot become Planar Infused, as a soul is required to manipulate and channel the energies of the planes.

    Other Classes: While Planar Infused might be mistaken for an arcanist, warlock or even a cleric at first, it becomes quickly apparent that they are in an entirely separate category. Some get along surprisingly well with monks and druids, as they are often like-minded individuals in respect to balance. In general however, the attitude of the average Infused is as easy to predict as that of the average person of every other class.

    Role: What your class does in and for a party.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the CLASS NAME.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: What weapons and armor your class is proficient in the use of!


    Elemental Aura (Ex): A planar infused has a particularly powerful pair of auras corresponding to his current chosen elements. Spells and effects that would normally reveal auras corresponding to alignment instead reveal the Infused’s current auras to the caster. The caster does not automatically know which aura is active and which aura is passive, though it should normally be visually apparent.
    Embodiment (Su): Each morning the Infused must choose one element to Embody and another element to Unleash. These elements must be opposed, as indicated in the Embodiment description.

    The Kalpa

    Feel the warmth of your skin? Thank the Plane of Fire.
    Feel the breath flowing between your lips? Thank the Plane of Air.
    Feel the stability of your bones? Thank the Plane of Air.
    Feel the blood flowing from your veins? Curse the Plane of Water.

    All things are a conjunction of the four elemental atoms; some defined by their presence, some by their absence.

    Things of great complexity, such as a living creature, are built from beautiful structures of intricately-bound atoms; they resonate in the perfection of their conjunction, each element still intrinsically bound to their plane of origin.

    However, there are those that are aware of these resonances, and as such, seek to change them. And in doing so, they change themselves. Such is the price of enlightenment.

    Adventures: Why your class might adventure.

    Characteristics: What your class is capable of.

    Alignment: What alignment or alignments your class may have and why.

    Religion: What deities or ideals your class follows, if any, and why.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: What races most often have members of your class, as well as any races that cannot join, along with why.

    Other Classes: How your class relates to other classes, positively or negatively, and why.

    Role: What your class does in and for a party.

    Kombatant

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    GET OVER HERE!

    Kombatants are similar to monks in many ways, but their path to enlightenment is more violent, and their violence has the purpose of proving once and for all whose philosophy of Kombat is best. The first Kombatants studied the lessons of the elements: Fire showed them the value of overwhelming offense, Air taught them mobility, Earth showed them how to endure, and Water showed them versatility. However, no one philosophy created the perfect warrior, and Life and Death were added to the mix. Finally, Kombatants realized that only a Kombination of two paths could give them martial perfection. Now, Void Kombatants square of against Ooze Kombatants and Ice Kombatants fight Lightning Kombatants. Only time will tell which is supreme.

    Adventures: Before engaging other Kombatants for the right to call themselves champion, many Kombatants travel as adventurers to learn more of the art of Kombat.

    Characteristics: Kombatants fight mostly unarmed with a variety of elemental powers and enhancements. Weapons are seen as a crutch that is only occasionally necessary for a true warrior.

    Alignment: All Kombatants are lawful. The entire purpose of a Kombatant's training is to devote themselves to a philosophy and then proves its worth. The Death path requires the Kombatant to be Lawful Evil, and the Life path requires them to be Lawful Good. Otherwise, they may choose any lawful alignment.

    Religion: Kombatants have no overall trend with regards to religion, but their deities often relate to the path they choose. One deity in particular favors his Kombatants, the lightning god Dairen.

    Background: Kombatants come from the same general background as monks, though they are more likely to wander than monks, and may train under a wandering master.

    Races: All notable Kombatants have been human, though it is not impossible for other races to train in their arts. There are rumors of at least one lizardman and possibly a centaur Kombatant.

    Other Classes: Kombatants can recognize the utility of other classes and teamwork, but their ultimate test will eventually be in single Kombat, and so they try to develop self-reliance as a general principle.

    Role: Kombatants are front line, mobile strikers with limited other abilities that vary by path. Some can be very durable, others very stealthy.

    Adaptation: A campaign that doesn't feature the Inner Planes might need adaptation, but very little.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    KOMBATANTS have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Kombatants can be built around almost any ability score. The different paths benefit differently from different ability scores.
    Alignment: Any Lawful.
    Hit Die: d6
    Starting Age: as Monk.
    Starting Gold: as Monk

    Class Skills
    The Kombatant’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (religion) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex).

    Skill Points at 1st Level: (4 + Int modifier) × 4.
    At each additional Level: 4 + Int modifier.

    Weapons and Armor proficiencies: Kombatants are not proficient with any armor or shield, and most of their Kombatant extraordinary abilities do not function in armor. Kombatants do not take nonproficiency penalties for any melee or thrown weapon, including improvised weapons, and they are proficient with shortbows and slings. A multiclassed Kombatant takes a penalty equal to the portion of his base attack bonus from other classes, but no higher than -4.

    Kombatant Abilities(Ex): The table gives four Extraordinary abilities that every Kombatant improves at as they go up in level. They are Speed, Damage, Armor Class, and Damage Reduction.
    Speed:
    The Kombatant adds this amount to their base movement speed as long as they are unarmored and not carrying a medium or heavier load or wielding a shield. "Kombatant bonus speed" refers to the amount in the table for that Kombatant's level (some Kombatant abilities are dependent on this amount). The path of Air enhances this ability more than other Kombatants.
    Damage:
    Kombatant bonus damage is added to all unarmed attacks and with weapons designated as special Kombatant weapons (quarterstaff, sai, nunchaku, kama, siangham, and shuriken). A Kombatants unarmed strikes can come from any part of their body, and they are treated as armed when attacking with them, as per the Improved Unarmed Strike feat. They can choose to deal lethal or nonlethal damage with any unarmed strike or grapple check, and they also add the bonus damage when grappling. In all cases, the bonus damage is the same type as the weapon's base type, although some path abilities change this. The path of Fire accelerates the progression of this ability.
    Armor Class:
    The Kombatant adds the number in this column as an untyped bonus to their armor class, as long as they are not helpless, unconscious, encumbered, or wearing armor or using a shield. The Path of Water increases this ability.
    Damage Reduction: The Kombatant subtracts this amount from all damage from weapons or natural attacks. Damage reduction can reduce damage to zero, but not below zero. The path of Earth enhances this ability.

    [i]Light is good? Dark is evil? Your worldview is naive. I have found the balance between the light and the dark and will use it to destroy you.
    Image From: http://images.mmosite.com/my/upload/...f894704318.jpg

    Info: Twilight Magi are spell casters who delve into the study of life or death and find out the balance or synergy of both life and death. Finding harmony or a balance between cold negative and warm yet erratic positive energy Twilight Magi are powerful casters who can bestow blessings or curses as appropriate for the situation.

    Characteristics: Twilight Magi tend to be fairly warm and open to their friends and can be cold and brutal to enemies. The amount of positive energy they tend to wield gives them more energy than the average person. On the counterpoint the amount of negative energy they hold can cause them to become coldly analytic and calm. These emotional effects can be suppressed by a competent Twilight Magus but they are also increased the more a Twilight Magus uses their abilities. Using more negative energy abilities causes the Magus to become temporarily colder and calmer while using more positive energy abilities causes the Magus to be more emotional and friendlier.

    Races: Races with strong religious ties have a slightly higher tendency of becoming Twilight Magi as their culture often deals with positive and negative energy which draws people to study the connection between the two types of energy. Undead can sometimes become Twilight Magi as well and it is decently common for a good aligned undead to become a Twilight Magus to capitalize on his newfound negatively powered soul.

    Alignment: Twilight Magi are fairly varied for alignment. Evil empires need healers as well and the Twilight Magi's ability to heal and harm makes them valuable to evil cults who normally lack the healing ability of good aligned churches. Likewise though Good aligned churches also need healers and the added offensive power of the Magi can help defend themselves from other threats. It is rare but not entirely uncommon for Magi to be neutral on the good-evil spectrum, usually they find themselves drawn to one side or another. It is fairly common for Twilight Magi to be neutral on the law-chaos spectrum as the art of the Twilight Magi requires finding common ground from the chaotic positive energy plane and the unchanging void of the negative energy plane.

    Other Classes: A Twilight Magi's relationship with other classes varies on the individual Twilight Magus. Good aligned Twilight Magi can find themselves in good company with good aligned clerics and paladins while also being able to maintain friendly relationships with a natural necromancer or vampire lord. An evil aligned Twilight Magi can find himself right at home with evil aligned clerics, demons and necromancers.

    Roles: A Twilight Magus is a healer and primary spell caster. Using recitations to protect, shield, heal his allies or debuff or harm his enemies. His shades can protect allies or harm enemies depending on his current energy point total and depending on his recitation selection a Twilight Magus can provide numerous summoned creatures to help flank and control enemies. Twilight Magi are also quite adept at manipulating energy that people use and are quite adept at refueling spell caster's spells and other character's limited resources.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Twilight Magus

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Twilight Magi are proficient with all simple weapons and light armor.

    Energy Casting: Twilight Magus use their own bodies as conduits for both positive and negative energy allowing them to manipulate such forces with great power and finesse. However, using too much positive energy harms the magus's ability to use negative energy and vise versa. The Magus starts with 0 energy points each day and can have at most 100 energy points and as little as -100. Whenever he uses a recitation he gains or loses energy points (Positive energy recitations adds energy points negative energy recitations subtract energy points). While the Magus has 50 energy points he becomes unable to use negative energy recitations and if he has -50 energy points he becomes unable to use positive energy recitations. Every round the Magus's energy point pool approaches 0 by 1. Thus if he has a negative amount of energy points he gains one and if he has a positive amount he loses one. If a magus gains 100 energy points he become unable to use any negative energy recitations until he can rest for eight hours which resets his energy points to 0. Similarly, if a magus gains -100 energy points he become unable to use any positive energy recitations until he can rest for eight hours which resets his energy points to 0. In addition, the Magus's energy pool doesn't approach 0 when he has either 100 or -100 energy points. However, the Magus can use final recitations at 100 or -100 energy points (Positive final recitations at 100 and negative final recitations at -100). Final recitations are described below.

    Recitations: A Twilight Magus can channel positive and negative energy in a different ways then standard casters. The Magus can produce magical effects through recitations which function as spell like abilities useable a certain amount of times per day. Unlike regular spell like abilities recitations requires verbal, material and xp components. Also they incur arcane spell failure when the Magus wears any armor heavier than light armor. A Magus may dismiss any ongoing recitation he cast as a standard action. The Magus may use each of his highest grade recitations 2 times per day. His next highest grade can be used 3/day the next highest level 4/day and any recitations of lower grade than his 3rd lowest level (So if he can use perfect recitations he would be able to use lesser and least recitations at will). Recitations have a dc equal to 10+the recitation level+the Magus's charisma modifier. Recitations are presented in the format: Name of Recitation (Level of Recitation, Energy point adjustment) [Any Appropriate Descriptors]. Recitations are standard actions unless otherwise noted.

    At level 1 a Magus knows one positive energy least recitation and one negative energy least recitation. Then the Magus gains more recitations as shown on the table above. A Magus can never know more than 2 recitations of one type than another. Thus, if a Magus knows 4 negative energy recitation and 6 positive energy recitations the next time he gains a recitation he must select a negative energy recitation.

    A Magus may change one of his previously selected Recitations for another one at any point as long as he preforms a ten minute ritual which requires material components equal to 100gp per level of the recitation. In addition, this ritual must take place on either the negative energy plane or positive energy plane. The Magus may then select a new recitation of the same set as the one he wishes to change.

    A Magus may select only least recitations at 1st level, he gains access to a new grade of recitations at 4th, 8th, 12th and 16th level.

    Linking: (Su) A Twilight Magus is excellent at creating webs of energy to spread spells to allies and efficiently inflict damage upon enemies. As a move action a Twilight Magus can link a creature within close range. The Magus has two types of energy webs, a positive web and a negative web. Usually a Twilight Magus will wish to link allies with their positive web and enemies with their negative web. Certain recitations may effect any creature in a particular web and they are noted as such in their description. The Magus is always treated as being in a web if he so wishes to be counted as in the web. The Twilight Magus can have a number of other creatures in each web equal to his intelligence modifier. A creature remains in the Magus's web as long as it stays within line of effect of the Magus (Teleportation to an area that is still within line of effect of the Magus does not count for this ability).

    Turn or Rebuke Undead A Twilight Magus can either turn or rebuke undead as a cleric of his class level. If his energy point total is positive he can turn undead, if it is negative he may rebuke undead and if it is 0 than he may choose which one to use. He may uses this ability 3 + his charisma modifier times per day.

    Mediation: (Su) At second level, the Magus can realign himself with either the positive or negative energy plane. As a move action the Magus may grant himself two energy points or subtract two energy points from his total. The Magus may not use this ability while at 100 or -100 energy points and can't increase his energy points above 100 or below -100 with this ability.

    Energy Shade: (Su) Twilight Magi can summon embodiments of positive and negative energy through their connection to both energies. A Magus may summon a shade whose abilities depend on how many energy points the Magus has. If you have positive energy points the shade becomes a positive energy shade, if you have negative energy points it becomes a negative energy shade. The shade switches forms if the Magus's energy points change from positive to negative values and vise versa. If the Magus has 0 energy points the Magus can switch which type of shade it is as a move action. Summoning a Shade takes a 30 minute ritual and they last until destroyed. A 3rd level Magus can have only one Shade active at any time. At 9th level and every 8 levels after he can have an additional shade summoned at once.

    Shades are spectral undead that have hit points equal to half the Magus's maximum. All of their ability scores are equal to the Magus's intelligence score except for strength and constitution which are -. Their armor class is equal to 10+their dexterity modifier + their charisma modifier (Deflection Bonus) + the magus's charisma modifier (Insight Bonus). They have HD equal to the Magus's caster level for the purpose of spells and effects. While Shades look incorporeal and do have an incorporeal touch attack they are not truly incorporeal and can take damage from non magical weapons and do not have a 50% miss chance against other attacks as well as being unable to phase through thin walls. When the Magus reaches 8th level they become truly incorporeal and gain all the standard traits of the incorporeal subtype. They do not gain skill points or feats. Shades have a natural incorporeal touch attack that depends on wether it is a positive energy or negative energy shade in addition to other abilities (See Below).

    Negative Energy Shade
    Incorporeal Touch: Inflicts Profane damage equal to 1d6+the shade's charisma modifier

    At 8th level the damage increases by 4

    At 10th level each touch inflicts one negative level. A fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 HD + Shade's Charisma modifier) negates the level.

    At 14th level the shade gains the feat life drain (Libris Mortis)

    At 16th level the damage increases by 12

    At 18th level the shade gains the feat spell drain (Libris Mortis)

    Positive Energy Shade
    Incorporeal Touch: Gives temporary hit points equal to double the shade's charisma modifier. This temporary hit points do not stack with themselves. These temporary hit points last for a number of rounds equal to the shade's charisma modifier

    At 8th level the temporary hit points gained increases by 8

    At 10th level each touch also gives +1 on all attack rolls, skill checks and saving throws. This bonus lasts as long as the temporary hit points last.

    At 14th level the bonus increases to +2 and the duration of the shade's temporary hit points doubles.

    At 16th level the temporary hit points increases by 32.

    At 18th level the shade can explode as an immediate action to heal an ally within line of sight and line of effect 75 hit points. This kills the shade.

    Aura: (Su) The energy a Twilight Magus holds is quite unstable and experienced Magi can leech excess energy around them creating an aura of negative or positive energy. Whenever the Magus has positive energy points he has the positive energy aura active and if he has negative energy points he has the negative energy aura active. If he has 0 energy points he can switch which aura is active as a move action. The aura can also be suppressed or reactivated as a move action. This aura has a radius of 30ft around the Magus, at 12th level this increases to 60ft radius.

    Positive Energy Aura: All allies within the aura heal one point of damage at the beginning of the Magus's turn as long as they have less than half their hit points. This aura can also damage creatures injured by positive energy. A will save negates this damage (DC 10 +1/2 Magus Level + charisma modifier)

    At 8th level this fast healing increases to 3 hit points each round.

    At 14th level this healing can heal allies to 3/4 of their maximum hit points

    At 16th level this healing increases to the Magus's intelligence modifier or 4. Whichever is higher.

    At 18th level this healing can fully heal any allies within range.

    Negative Energy Aura: All enemies harmed by negative energy within the aura take one point of negative energy damage. A will save negates this damage (DC 10 +1/2 Magus Level + charisma modifier) This aura can also heal allies who are healed by negative energy such as undead. They can only be healed to 1/2 their maximum hit points though.

    At 8th level this damage increases to 3 hit points each round.

    At 14th level this damage also gives them a stacking penalty against negative energy recitations. Each time an enemy takes damage they suffer a -1 on saving throws against negative energy recitations (Maximum penalty of -3).

    At 16th level this damage increases to the Magus's intelligence modifier or 4. Whichever is higher.

    At 18th level this damage can heal any allies healed by negative energy to 3/4 their hit points.

    Energy Healing: (Su) At 4th level, the Twilight Magus has learned how to sustain his form with both positive and negative energy. Whenever the Twilight Magus is targeted with an ability that deals positive or negative energy damage he is healed by that amount. He is still vulnerable to negative levels or other similar effects.

    Healer's Hands: (Su): At 5th level the Twilight Magus learns how to harness his powers to help others heal quicker from diseases, poisons or regular wounds. The Magus gains a +2 circumstance bonus to heal checks. This bonus increases by +2 for every 3 class levels beyond 5th. The Magus may also heal creatures more rapidly, providing first aid, treating poison or caltrop injury is now a move action. At 10th level these become swift actions.

    In addition a number of times per day equal to the Magus's intelligence modifier he can channel positive or negative energy as appropriate into a creature with a touch. This takes a standard action and has varying effects depending on the level of the Magus. At 5th level the Magus allows the subject to make a immediate saving throw against any poison or non magical disease using the Magus's heal skill modifier in place of his normal saving throw. If this saving throw succeeds then the poison or disease instantly is removed. At 8th level the Magus can send a minor amount of negative energy into an undead creature allowing it to recover hit points naturally like a living creature. This lasts for one day per intelligence modifier. At 11th level the Magus can remove one negative level from the subject with this touch. At 14th level the Magus can also regenerate one limb as the spell except it doesn't restore hit point damage, fatigue, exhaustion and also only restores one limb or extremity. At 17th level the Magus can restore all points of ability damage and remove all ability drain on one ability score of the Magus's choosing.

    Energy Inverse: (Su) Once per day as a free action a Twilight Magus of 7th level can abruptly change his energy pool and his style of fighting. When using this ability he multiplies his energy pool by -1. He can not use this ability while at 100 or -100 energy points. At 13th level he can use this ability 2/day and at 19th level he can use it 3/day.

    Final Recitations: (Su) At 10th level the Twilight Magus may select one of the 10th level final recitations below. At 15th level he may select a 15th level final recitation and at 20th he may select a 20th level one. A final recitation works like a normal recitation except that a positive energy final recitation requires 100 energy points to use and a negative energy final recitation requires -100 energy points. Using any final recitation sets the Magus's energy points to 0. Each final recitation can only be used once per day.

    10th Level Final Recitations

    Phoenix Fire: (7th)
    The Magus uses the energy of the positive energy plane to wrap a subject in a cloak of energy. This energy give off bright light and looks like a shield of dancing flames. If the subject is healed by positive energy than this shield grants fast healing 10 and inflicts 5d6 points of fire damage to anyone who touches the subject or who attacks the subject with a non reach melee weapon. If the subject dies while this shield is in effect he is immediately resurrected with half his maximum hit points. This shield lasts for 1 round per 2 caster levels.

    If used on a subject who is harmed by positive energy than the shield deals 4d6+10 damage per round for 1 round per caster level. A fortitude save at the beginning of this recitation halves all future damage caused by it. If a creature dies while being affected by this recitation than their remains burst into flames and are reduced to ashes.

    Soul Steal: (7th) [Death]
    The Magus targets a single subject and rips the subject's soul from his body killing the subject unless he can succeed on a fortitude save. If the subject fails the fortitude save than the Magus steals his life energy and adds the subject's current hit points to his own as temporary hit points.


    15th Level Final Recitations

    Lay on Hands:(8th) The magus channels all the positive energy his soul can bear and unleashes it with a touch. Any creature touched by this is healed an amount equal to the Magus's maximum hit points. The Magus can damage undead or other creatures harmed by positive energy as well but needs to hit with a melee touch attack and they get a will save for half damage (DC 18 + Charisma + intelligence). If Lay on Hands is used to heal it grants temporary hit points equal to half the Magus's maximum hit points. Unlike normal melee touch attacks the positive energy used in this recitation is too unstable to be held and if the Magus doesn't heal someone within one round of using this recitation the energy is wasted.

    Negative Burst Storm: (8th) The magus channels a massive amount of negative energy as a standard action targeting 4 creatures within medium range (100ft +10ft/level). Each creature is flooded with negative energy which lashes out at nearby creatures and siphons energy. For each creature within 10ft of each target creature the targeted creature gains one negative level (Maximum negative levels equal to 1/2 the Magus's caster level). Each creature within 10ft of each targeted creature gains one negative level. The magus then heals two hit points for each negative level bestowed with this recitation.


    20th Level Final Recitations
    Spoiler
    Show

    Supernova: (9th)
    As an immediate action this recitation allows the Magus to call as much positive energy as he is possible of calling into one spot at once. However, he spends all his power on simply calling the energy not controlling it with any finesse what so ever. Instead he lets it burst from his form and spread to his allies shielding and protecting them. The positive energy the Magus has called bursts forth in a magnificent explosion of light. All allies within a one mile radius of the Magus gain a +5 bonus on all saving throws, skill checks, attack rolls and also gain temporary hit points equal to the maximum hit point total of the Magus. This ability ignores line of sight and line of effect and the Magus needs neither of those to affect his allies with this recitation. These temporary hit points last for one day per caster level of the Magus. Using this recitation is not without cost though and after using this recitation the Magus's form disintegrates into white ashes that scatter in the explosion killing him. In addition, channeling this much positive energy is disruptive for the Magus' soul and makes it impossible to resurrect the Magus for at least one day as his soul and spirit try to reform themselves after the hosting maelstrom of energy they just unleashed.

    Absolute Zero: (9th)
    The Magus can siphon energy so efficiently as a standard action this recitation lets the Magus rob a 20ft radius spread within close range (25ft+5ft/2 levels) of all energy. This essentially robs all creatures in the area of the ability to move, think or act rendering them in a state similar to temporal stasis (Though they can still be harmed and healed though it may be difficult to do so). Magic as well is negated inside this area and all ongoing magical effects are ended as long as they are not cast at a caster level higher than the Magus's caster level. Magic items are treated as being suppressed in the area and for 1d10 rounds after leaving the area. All kinetic energy and gravity is also negated so movement inside the area is impossible for objects. When objects are thrown into the area they simply stop once they enter and simply hang in the air. Every round a subject is trapped in the area he may make a fort save to allow himself to move. If the subject fails he takes 5d6 cold damage from the lack of heat. If he fails three saving throws in a row the character dies as all energy from his very soul is sucked into the negative energy plane. Even if he succeeds it still is difficult to move around, his movement speed for all types of movement are halved and he can only take a move or a standard action on his turn. A successful saving throw means that the creature's items are not suppressed. In addition, the area is still suppressing magic so he must make another will save or be unable to use any spell, spell like ability or similar ability while in the area. The Magus is immune to his own Absolute Zero recitation and it does not hamper his movement or his recitations or items nor does it deal damage to him. This area siphons energy out of it for 1 minute/caster level


    Energy Well: (Su) At 11th level with a minute long ritual the Twilight Magus can summon up a spectral well filled to the brim with positive or negative energy at his choosing. This energy can restore creature's magical, psionic, or similar power. A well can restore a number of spells, recitations or mysteries equal to one quarter the Magus's charisma modifier (rounded up). This allows the spells or abilities selected to be used again as if the creature had not expended them. The spells or recitations restored may be of any level that the character can use, although prepared spellcasters must gain spells that they have already expended this day. The well restores psionic power points, and one spell is equivalent to a number of power points equal to the manifester level of the creature. The Magus can limit how many spells or power points each creature can pull from the well. Pulling a spell or refilling power points from the well takes one standard action and the character must be adjacent to the well to do so. At 18th level the Magus can conjure the well two times per day.


    Energy Transformation: The Twilight Magus of 16th level transforms into a new form which is cloaked in positive or negative energy based on the choice of the Twilight Magus. The Twilight Magus can choose any of the following templates to chose from, Vampire, Serath Lich, or Radiant Conduit. Find them all here. The DM may grant another template if he so wishes but it should be LA 2 or less and be thematically tied to positive or negative energy.

It has two claw attacks that each deal 3d6+strength damage and it has the following special qualities and attacks.

    Aura of Flames (Su): This ability grants the Stygian Phoenix +10 Deflection Bonus to AC as the black flames surrounding the bird protect it. In addition, any creature striking the Phoenix with a non reach melee weapon or a natural attack takes 2d6+10 points of profane damage from the flames.

    Black Flames (Su): All natural attacks of the Stygian Phoenix deal an extra 3d6 points of profane damage.

    Body of Decay (Ex): The Phoenix is made of negative energy and thus is healed by negative energy, is immune to negative levels, is immune to death effects and other harmful negative energy effects. However, this energy is not stable. Every round the Stygian Phoenix takes 20 points of unavoidable unblockable damage as its body slowly decays.

    Cataclysm (Ex): When the Phoenix inevitably dies it explodes in a burst of black flames. Any creature within 10ft of the Phoenix is subject to a destruction effect. The DC is charisma based.

    Healing Bubble, Perfect: (9,+20)
    This recitation grants the subject fast healing 15 for one minute per caster level as they are enveloped in a warm glow. This fast healing stacks with any existing fast healing that the creature has.

For the duration of this recitation the caster's spells automatically overcome all spell resistance, essentially treating the spells as if they had SR: No. Due to the difficulties of holding that much positive energy the duration for non Twilight Magi is 3 rounds. If the Magus uses this on himself the duration is 1 round/caster level as the Magus is better at controlling the ebb and flow of energy.

    Enhanced Fortitude, Radiant: (9th, +20)

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XIX - Inner Might

    Planar Sentinel

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    I am here not just to keep this realm safe, but all realms.

    A general description of what your class is!

    Adventures: Why your class might adventure.

    Characteristics: What your class is capable of.

    Alignment: What alignment or alignments your class may have and why.

    Religion: What deities or ideals your class follows, if any, and why.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: Humans and halflings, with their ambitious nature, are not usually Planar Sentinels, although they do take to the class readily. Elves and gnomes, with their long lives and general respect for the natural world, are by far the most likely of the common races to become a Planar Sentinel. Dwarves are generally too commited to their clan to leave them, but make fine Planar Sentinels when they do. Half orcs and half elves actually are likely to become a Planar Sentinel, as the wandering nature of the two races lends itself to the wandering lifestyle of a Planar Sentinel.

    Other Classes: Planar Sentinels get along well with Druids and others concerned with the balance of life. However, a Planar Sentinel is wise enough to recognize the value of teamwork, so normally do not have serious problems with working with varied classes.

    Role: A Planar Sentinel mans the frontlines, and protects those around them. Their auras give them great support capabilities, even functioning as a secondary healer of sorts.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    CLASS NAME's have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Wisdom powers many of the Planar Sentinel’s class abilities, giving them better saves and DCs for their abilities. Planar Sentinel’s are also a combat class, so physical statistics are also important.
    Alignment: Any Neutral

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Planar Sentinel.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Planar Sentinel is proficient in the use of all armors and shields (excepting tower) and with simple and martial weapons.

    Planar Lore (ex): A Planar Sentinel knows lots of random things about the many planes of the multiverse. A Planar Sentinel adds elemental languages to their list of bonus languages (Ignan, Auran, Terran, and Aquan) and may use the Knowledge (The Planes) skill even if untrained.

    Additionally, the Sentinel may make a check similar to a Bardic Knowledge check about things concerning the planes, adding their class level + Intelligence modifier. If the Planar Sentinel has 5 ranks in Knowledge (The Planes), they gain a +2 bonus to this check.

    Planar Aspect (su): A Planar Sentinel learns to channel a small part of one of the Inner Planes into themself, gaining insight into certain skills. A Planar Sentinel channeling an Inner Plane gains a Competence bonus equal to their class level in a single skill. Activating this ability requires a Swift action, but the Sentinel may continue channeling a Plane indefinitely, or until they switch planes or dismiss the effect (both swift actions). Additionally, at 10th level, a Planar Sentinel may take 10 with the skill relevant to the Inner Plane they are channeling.

    {table=head]Inner Plane|Relevant Skill
    Fire|Tumble
    Air|Jump
    Earth|Balance
    Water|Swim
    Positive|Heal
    Negative|Concentration
    [/table]


    Auras (su): A Planar Sentinel gains the ability to channel the power of the planes into the area around them, manipulating the situation as they see fit. Projecting an aura is a swift action and you can only project one aura at a time. You can continue projecting an aura indefinitely, or until you change auras or dismiss it (both swift actions).
    Auras


    If your aura is beneficial it affects all allies within the range of the aura (including yourself) with line of effect to you. If it is harmful, it affects all enemies with range of the aura with line of effect to you. Your aura is dismissed if you become unconscious or are slain, but otherwise it remains in effect even if you are incapable of acting. The save DC of any aura is equal to 10 + 1/2 the Planar Sentinel's level (rounded up) + Wisdom modifier.

    A Planar Sentinel knows 2 auras (selected from the list below) at first level, and gains knowledge of 1 additional aura every third level thereafter (at 4th, 7th, etc). The bonus associated with a Planar Sentinel's aura starts at +1 at first level, and increases by 1 every 5 levels (5th, 10th, etc.)

    Serene Grace (ex): A Planar Sentinel slowly becomes more at peace with themselves, and gains a greater understanding of the plane they exist on in the current moment. This inner peace grants them great insight into their own reactions. At 2nd level, a Planar Sentinel may add their Wisdom modifier (if positive) as a bonus to all of their saving throws.

    Planar Manipulation (su): A Planar Sentinel of 3rd level gains the ability to actually transpose portions of the various elemental planes onto their current plane. Activating a manipulation for 1 round is a Move action, and mantaining that manipulation for each additional round requires a swfit action and a successful Concentration check equal to 15 + (2 x the number of rounds you've mantained this manipulation). A Manipuation effects an area centered on the Sentinel with a radius equal to 5 ft. x the Sentinel's aura bonus.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Manipulations
    Fire:
    Air: The area affected by this manipulation experinces heavy winds, blowing outwards from the Sentinel. Treat this as Severe Winds.
    Earth: The area affected by this manipulation becomes difficult terrain, although the Sentinel (and only the Sentinel) may move freely amongst the area.
    Water:


    Mettle (ex): The energies of the planes slowly hardens a Planar Sentinel to all that would attempt to slay them. At 4th level, if a Planar Sentinel makes a successful Will or Fortitude save against an attack that normally would have a lesser effect on a successful save (such as any spell with a saving throw entry of Will half or Fortitude partial), the Sentinel instead completely negates the effect. An unconscious or sleeping Planar Sentinel does not gain the benefit of mettle.

    Dimensional Blockade (sp): The Planar Sentinel learns to contain portions of the planes within themselves, allowing them to deal with nearby threats without worry. The blockade effects an area centered on the Sentinel with a radius equal to 10 ft. x the Sentinel's aura bonus as the spell Dimensional Lock. Activating the blockade for 1 round is a Move action, and mantaining that manipulation for each additional round requires a swfit action and a successful Concentration check equal to 15 + (2 x the number of rounds you've mantained the blockade).

    Exorcisms (su): A Planar Sentinel is a warden of the planes, some creatures must be dealt with in an immediate fasion, whilst others may need to be dealth with later on a different plane. Whatever the case, the Planar Sentinel learns skills to exorcise them. At 6th level, a Planar Sentinel learns their first Exorcism (chosen from the list below), and may activate it as a free action during an Exorcist's Strike (see below), though only one Exorcism may be used during an Exorcist's Strike. A Planar Sentinel learns an additional Exorcism every second level after sixth, but they must meet all of the prerequisites of the Exorcism (this includes their first Exorcism). Whenever an Exorcism grants a saving throw, the DC is 10 + 1/2 class level + Wisdom modifier
    Exorcisms
    Spoiler
    Show

    Exorcism of Bane
    Benefit: Upon activating this Exorcism, your weapon is treated as if it had the Extraplanar Bane property, regardless of your weapons actual properties. This increases the effective enhancement bonus of the weapon by +2, and causes the weapon to deal an additional 2d6 damage upon a successful attack on any creature with the Extraplanar subtype.

    Exorcism of Seeking
    Benefit: Upon activating this Exorcism, your weapon bypasses miss chance (including that of Mirror Image) as if you were affected by True Strike.

    Exorcism of Dread
    Benefit: Upon activating this Exorcism, a successful attack forces the target to succeed at a Will save or become Shaken for 1 minute. This ability does not stack with itself.

    Exorcism of Fire
    Benefit: Upon activating this Exorcism, the target becomes affected as if by Faerie Fire for 1 minute.

    Exorcism of Unraveling Enchantments
    Prerequisites: Level 8 Planar Sentinel
    Benefit: If you hit your target with an attack affected by this Exorcism, you may affect it as if with a targeted Dispel Magic, using your class level as the caster level of this attack. Alternatively, if used as part of a readied action, you may use this Exorcism to immediately Counterspell a spell cast by your target.

    Exorcism of Trapping
    Prerequisites: Level 10 Planar Sentinel
    Benefit: If you hit your target with an attack affected by this Exorcism, you may affect it as if with a Dimensional Anchor for 1 minute.

    Unfortunately due to our lease holder dodging at the last second I am finding a new place to live and can not do the intensive writing needed to wrap up the project to a point where I feel comfortable launching it. It's a huge project and is on the edge, likely next month.

    Additionally my other plan was to release the next model of Ozodrin, but sadly that one is not comfortably polished either so I must withdraw from the competition.

    Thanks!

    Conductor

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    Put a quote by or about a member of your class here!

    A conductor absorbs electrical and other energy-based attacks in order to build charges to spend on their own powers. Once they obtain a number of charges over their normal maximum limit, they become even more powerful.

    Adventures: A conductor may adventure for the same reason your regular adventurer may: wealth, status, understanding, thrill, etc. However, many conductors adventure with one goal in mind: the acquisition of POWER! Not power as in becoming king over some obsure nation, either. No, conductors adventure to find pure, elemental power!

    Characteristics: The conductor has the ability to absorb elemental powers and turn them into electrical energies, using them in almost anything and everything he does, bending them to his will.

    Alignment: Conductors are capable of any alignment, however, you're likely to find more than a few that tend toward something chaotic. Their drive to obtain pure power turns more than one completely evil in their conquest as well.

    Religion: What deities or ideals your class follows, if any, and why.

    Background: A conductor is not born with the powers they have; they are a creation of pure force: electrical force, to be specific. A conductor became the way they are through extreme exposure to electrical energies. Whether by natural or magical means, it does not matter. Most conductors do not choose to become what they have, but it is not unknown for a conductor to purposely pursue the path of electrical supremacy, especially those chaotic evil types bent on harnessing such power (though, it is also not unheard of that those who try die in the process; just because you're struck by lightning doesn't mean you automatically make the cut).

    Races: Any race without racial immunity or resistance to electricity are able to become a conductor. Those with these traits have bodies that are too naturally hardened to electrical energies for them to be effected.

    Other Classes: A conductor typically works well with a spellcaster that is able and willing to expend their magic in order to aid the conductor by charging his abilities.

    Role: What your class does in and for a party.

    Adaptation: A DM of a campaign may have to throw a few more electric-based attacks/traps against the party to effectively take advantage of the powers the conductor has, but there are other ways for one to obtain their power as well.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Conductor's have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: The two most important scores for a conductor are Dexterity and Constitution, though which one is more important is dependent upon what the player wants out of his character. Dexterity is important in order to move about the battlefield more effectively. Constitution becomes necessary when the conductor becomes undercharged so that he may damage his Constitution in order to regain his charges.
    Other than the main two scores, Intelligence is also semi-important for a conductor in order to fuel some of their skills and for casting.
    Alignment: Any, with a strong draw toward chaotic (many times evil).
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: Any age is possible, but those who are most likely to survive the power transfer in order to become a conductor are likely to be more youthful than not. They are likely just past or just reaching adulthood respective to their race.
    Starting Gold: What amount of currency your class starts at level one with normally ("As barbarian," "As cleric," "As druid," "As fighter," "As monk," and "As sorcerer" are the standard options, though feel free to put down the numbers, as well.).

    Class Skills
    The Conductor's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are...
    Balance(Dex), Climb(Str), Concentration(Con), Craft(Int), Disable Device(Int), Escape Artist(Dex), Heal(Wis), Hide(Dex), Jump(Str), Listen(Wis), Move Silently(Dex), Open Lock(Dex), Profession(Wis), Search(Int), Sleight of Hand(Dex), Spot(Wis), Swim(Str), Tumble(Dex), Use Magic Device(Cha)

    Skill Points at First Level: (8 + Int modifier) x 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 8 + Int modifier

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Conductor.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies:
    Conductors are proficient in the use of all simple weapons.
    Conductors are proficient in the use of light and no armor.

    Lightning Reflexes (Ex):
    As a quintessential incarnation of lightning, the conductor is able to deftly dodge even the most sudden attacks.
    At 1st level, a conductor gains the benefits of Lightning Reflexes, as the feat.

    Lightning Rod (Ex):
    At 1st level, a conductor is able to absorb energy-based attacks, storing charges for their own use during the process. For electricity-based attacks, the amount of charges received is determined by [damage roll x 1.5]. Other energy-based attacks build charges based on just the damage roll. The number of charges obtained is not reduced by any amount of resistance to a certain energy type a conductor may have.

    Additionally, whenever a conductor is struck by an energy-based attack that he has resistance against, he may arc the attack off himself, dealing damage to a single target within 30 feet of himself equal to the amount of damage he negated to himself (he still takes the rest of the damage as normal and does not gain the benefit of keeping the charges he would have gained from the resisted damage).

    Charges may be spent on a wide variety of things: from electricity-based spells, skill modifiers, class abilities, etc. In order to cast electricity-based spells, a conductor must have a Conductivity Rating equal to or exceeding the spell level that would be required by a wizard. A conductor's caster level is equal to his conductor class levels plus any other caster levels he may have gained from another class.

    A conductor has a maximum number of charges he can hold at any given time, as represented in the class table. After 8 hours of rest, a conductor's charges are restored up to his maximum amount.

    Static Discharge (Su):
    Starting at 1st level, upon being struck by a conductive, melee weapon (metal, flesh, etc.), a conductor can choose to spend 3 charges to do 1d4 points of electricity damage to the attacker. The conductor can stack uses of Static Discharge to do more damage, but the appropriate amount of charges must be spent. He may use as many stacks as he has class levels.

    Resistance to Electricity (Ex):
    Because the flow of current moves so easily through the conductor, he is able to take reduced damage from electrical attacks, eventually becoming completely immune to such damage.

    Level 1: Resistance to Electricity 5
    Level 5: Resistance to Electricity 10
    Level 10: Resistance to Electricity 15
    Level 15: Immunity to Electricity

    Overcharged/Undercharged (Ex):
    At 2nd level, a conductor has the ability to store a 1.5x his maximum number of charges. Whenever he has any number of charges over his maximum, he is considered to be Overcharged. While Overcharged, any abilities that do damage deal 50% more damage.

    Conversely, whenever a conductor finds that he does not have enough charges to use an ability, he is considered Underchaged. If a conductor finds himself to be Undercharged, he may damage his Constitution score by 2 in order to regain a number of charges equal to [15 x class level].
    Constitution damage suffered in this way heals at a rate of 2 per eight hours of rest, separate from healing ability damage suffered from another source.

    Evasion (Ex):
    The speed and precision with which a conductor moves allows him to avoid any injury from magical assailants.
    By 3rd level, the conductor gains the benefit of evasion, as the rogue.

    Lightning Quick (Ex):
    With his constant surge of power, a conductor is always on edge, eagerly awaiting his next conflict.
    Starting at 4th level, a conductor gains a +1 modifier to his Initiative roll. Every four levels after, he gains an additional +1 modifier to his Initiative roll.

    Improved Evasion (Ex):
    At 13th level, a conductor gains the benefit of Improved Evasion. This ability works like evasion, except that while the conductor still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks henceforth he takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless conductor does not gain the benefit of Improved Evasion.

    Channeler

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    I'm not a cleric, there is nothing divine about what I do. Clerics don't really understand what they do when they cast cure or harm spells, they don't know or care were they energy comes from to turn or rebuke the undead. Clerics and Paladins don't care about the 'how' only the 'what'. There's so much more you can do with the 'how'.

    How do positive and negative energy work really? People who study this can stumble upon the power of the channeler. Channelers understand that any healing or damaging effect can

    Adventures: Why your class might adventure.

    Characteristics: What your class is capable of.

    Alignment: While the law of energy conservation and an understanding of the "balance" of positive and negative energies is the source of their power channelers are equally likely to be of any alignment.

    Religion: Channelers tend to be either irreligious or worship gods of magic or knowledge.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: A channeler can be of any race, though humans, gnomes, half-elves and elves are the most common.

    Other Classes: How your class relates to other classes, positively or negatively, and why.

    Role: Channelers are both healers and ranged combatants.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Channelers have the following game statistics.
    Abilities:
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d6
    Starting Age: As wizard
    Starting Gold: As wizard

    Class Skills

    Sidebar: Committed Hit Points-
    Spoiler
    Show
    Some abilities have costs labeled Committed Hit Points. To use them, a character loses the number of hit points specified(as a cost to use the ability, these cannot be prevented in any way unless the method specifically mentions lessening HP costs). Depending on the ability, these are either lethal committed points, or non lethal. Unlike normal hp loss, these hit points cannot be restored using cure spells or other normal means of healing. Instead, these points are permanently lost until enough time has passed as noted in the specific ability. Most are until the effect generated by the ability ceases. After this duration has passed, they may be healed as normal if they were lethal points. If they were non-lethal HP, they are instead automatically healed.

    The cost is applied after the ability resolves: if this would render the character unconscious or dead, the effect resolves as normal, and then the character is rendered dead or unconscious. For the purpose of Committed cost, a character cannot use an ability if it would reduce him past -10, or would kill him, whichever is greater.

    Non-lethal HP count towards the total amount of Non-lethal damage a character has sustained.



    Elemental Champion

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    Through Air I Sought You. Through Earth I Held You. Through Water I Judged you. And Through Fire I Sentence You.
    -Traditional Pryian Flame Execution Saying

    A general description of what your class is!

    Adventures: Why your class might adventure.

    Characteristics: An Elemental Champion's master over elemental forces is all but unmatched, both living and non-living.

    Alignment: While not having any firm restrictions, Champions do tend towards neutrality, especially as they grow in power.

    Religion: Champions have no innate tendency towards religion. In fact, many take it as a point of pride that they hold no such allegiances. Those that do turn toward religion usually do so due to their own moral outlook, rather than a cause brought to them through their training. There are occasional Champions who follow nature Gods, the divine beings closest to the Inner Planes a champion channels.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: There is very little discrimination in the choosing of Champions: most sizable races have had a champion or two. Races who are already tied to the elemental planes may well have more Champions than normal. On the other hand, beings that are tied to the outer planes generally produce fewer, and those tied to the Far Realms are essentially non-existent.

    Other Classes: Champions often have the most problems in dealing with those that channel the divine powers. Divine classes view the Champions as being deceived by lesser powers, and Champions have much the same opinion.

    Role: Champions are focused on physical combat, whether melee or ranged depending on the champion. They also have an array of options at their disposal which can id them in other areas.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    CLASS NAME's have the following game statistics.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the CLASS NAME.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: What weapons and armor your class is proficient in the use of!

    All other class features go here (Use the format shown directly below if you don't know what to do.)!

    Affinity (Su): At first level a Champion chooses which plane they will primarily channel energy from, which influences many abilities gained latter, including channels. They may chose any of the 4 Elemental planes: Water, Air, Earth, and Fire.

    Elemental Channeling (Su): The raw power of the inner planes is at the finger tips of a Champion, but they can no more use it than a Wizard can utilize the raw arcane power that fuels their spells. Instead they learn formalized methods of using the power granted to them, called Channels.

    Each plane has it's own set of channels, and each set of channels is divided into 4 levels. Channels are often collected into trees. In this case, you need each of the prerequisites to learn the more advanced channels.

    Champions learn channels through two methods. First, they automatically know all the channels from their chosen affinity, though each level is locked until they would unlock it. Secondly, they learn channels from their other elements as they progress in the class. They may spread channels they learn from the class among any of the 3 non-chosen planes, and may chose from any level of channel that they have unlocked.

    Channels may be passive, active, or a mix. Channels do have costs associated with using them, generally involving hp. Some Channels also allow a Champion to invest hp, in effect spending or committing more hp in return for a greater effect. A Champion can only invest a number of hp according to the chart below unless specified. Investing is a free action.

    If a character is immune to non-lethal damage, all non-lethal commitments are instead lethal. If a character is immune to Lethal damage, all costs should be non-lethal. If a character is immune to both, you should throw a book at the player.

    {table=head]HD|Max Invest
    1-3|1
    4-7|2
    9-12|3
    13-16|4
    17-20|5[/table]

    Affinity Boost(Su): At level 4, all Channels from your chosen element are considered to be automatically invested with a value of 1. Thus, a level 4 Champion with an affinity to Fire and who wished to use Body of Fire could freely use it with an investment of 1. If he wanted to use it with an investment of 2, he would only have to invest 1 hp, not the normal 2.

    At level 13 the automatic investment increases to 2.






    Fire Channels:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Cloak of Fire - The simplest of all Fire Channels, the Champion taps their connection to the Elemental Plane of fire, and largely lets the energy dissipate into the air around them.

    This normally replicates the spell endure elements, though, only for cold temperatures. This effect extends out 30 feet + 5 feet per point invested. A Champion also gains +2 fire damage on all physical attacks, which increases by 3 for each point invested.

    In addition, the Champion can spike the energy, thus disrupting magical effects relating to the plane of fire. In effect, they may cast Dispel Magic, but only against things with the [Fire] tag. This effect costs 5 hp, and is considered Dispel Magic, with a caster level equal to HD(with the normal limit). If more than 3 hp are invested, then it is instead Greater Dispel Magic.

    Invested Hp are lost until the effect is ended, which can be done at any time. The invested hp are non-lethal.

    Affinity-Those with an affinity to fire gain a +2 bonus on the caster level check, and may make one free dispel magic per day. Additionally, the Fire damage is shared to all allies within the range of the endure elements effect.


    Body of Fire - Prerequisite: Cloak of Fire

    A more advanced channel, the Champion takes the energy they would otherwise release and internalize it, attuning themselves to the Plane of Fire.

    This internalization gives the Champion Fire Resistance 3. Investing hp adds 3 to this resistance per hp, and the resistance stacks with resistance gained from items, classes, and races.

    In addition, the finer control over the connection allows the Champion to use Dismissal against creatures not native to this plane. Champions add the number of points invested in this Channel to the save DC against creatures who have the fire subtype. While still imperfect, the 20% chance to transport the subject to a random plane instead will transport them to the Elemental Plane of Fire.

    Invested Hp are lost until the effect is ended, which can be done at any time. The invested hp are nonlethal.

    Affinity: If the Champion has affinity with this element, he may share the elemental resistance to allies within 60ft. He also gets one free use of Dismissal per day.

    Heart of Fire - Prerequisite: Body of Fire

    With even greater internalization of the planar patterns found in the Plane of Fire and it's relation to the material the Champion gains even greater power.

    Firstly, for every non-lethal point invested in this Channel, the Champion gains a stacking +5 fire resistance. If this would push them over 20 fire resistance, they may invest 5 lethal hp to gain Fire immunity(this is an exception to the normal investment rules, and does not count toward the amount invested in this Channel, and they are Lethal hp). They lose this immunity if there Fire resistance would drop below 20.

    Additionally, a Champion may now bring beings fully into the Material. If three or fewer points are invested in this ability, they may use Lesser Planar Ally for a cost of 10 lethal hp. If 4 points are invested, he may use Planar Ally. If 5 or more points are invested he may use Greater Planar Ally. He may only call beings with the [Fire] Subtype, or Elementals. If the being falls under both categories, the Champion gains a +5 circumstance bonus on all rolls relating to the being. The 10 hp are considered committed for 1 minute per hit dice called.

    Invested Hp are lost until the effect is ended, which can be done at any time. The invested hp are nonlethal.

    Affinity: A champion with affinity gains Fire immunity if their resistance reaches 20 automatically, with no further cost. He also gains one use of whichever version of Planar Ally he qualifies for for free.


    Soul of Fire - Prerequisite: Heart of Fire

    At the peak of their skill, a Champion can bind their very being to the plane of Fire, gaining some degree of mastery over it's powers.

    They may cast Gate once per day for lethal 30hp. If they use this to call a Creature with both the Fire subtype and Elemental type, they only have to spend half the xp. If they Call one with neither, they must spend one and a half as much. This hp is committed for one hour.

    In addition, for each point they invest in this Channel, they gain qualities according to the table below.
    {table=head]Points|Quality
    1|They do not need to Eat, Sleep, or Breathe
    2|Immunity to Poison, Sleep effects
    3|Immunity to Flanking, Darkvision 60ft
    4|Immunity to paralysis, and stunning
    5|Immunity to Critical Hits[/table]
    They may also add the points invested on Attack rolls, saves, and to AC against beings with the Fire Subtype.

    Blink Raider

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    "We move through the planes as they move through us. We exist between, reaching out to bring you sweet death, so that we may fade again." -Gherot Kaelor, Blink Raider Exarch

    Blink Raiders are psionic warriors, using their mental powers to move in the blink of an eye to strike where least expected. Due to their emphasis on teleporting to quickly move around the battlefield, Blink Raiders wear bulkier armor, allowing them to weather what few attacks their opponents can land.

    Adventures: Blink Raiders adventure for many reasons, but rarely do they go out into the planes for glory. Most do not wish to draw attention to themselves, preferring to use their powers to satisfy their own moral compass, such as revenge or to right perceived wrongs.

    They are primarily insular, seeking to protect those they care about or to further their own ability to survive in the increasingly hostile and varied inner planes.

    Characteristics: Blink Raiders use their psionic abilities to attack enemies from near and afar, striking from nowhere only to disappear again. They do not like drawn out fights, tending to wait until opportune moments to teleport in and strike with powerfully augmented attacks. They wear heavier armor to weather whatever attacks come at them, and use their years of surviving in the planes as a way to weather the many harsh environments.

    Alignment: While they are varied, many Blink Raiders lean towards lawful and neutral alignments, based on their desire for equilibrium. They tend to have strict moral codes and rarely act in the interest of others.

    Religion: Not intuitively religious, they tend to worship gods that show aspects of their individual personality, usually related to retribution or combat.

    They rarely align themselves with the elemental powers, seeing them as part and parcel with the stresses and challenges they faced coming to adulthood in the inner planes.

    Background: Blink Raiders are a natural outgrowth of being a psionic in the Inner Planes. While some speculate that experimenting ultraloths may have had a hand in introducing these warriors into the planes, these are individuals who grew up with psionic abilities and use them to survive the harsh elements.

    Races: Any race that is not primarily arcane in nature. These warriors are a result of growing up in an harsh environment with only their own mind to rely on, and as such tend to not be from races that rely on magic to get by.

    They are based in the inner planes, rarely resulting elsewhere. Sometimes they will appear on a Primal plane, descended from a previous Blink Raider who migrated to an easier environment to grow old in.

    Other Classes: Blink Raiders are usually envious of arcane spellcasters, and tend to compete with them. They see great value in a rogue's ability to strike out of the shadows and respect physical prowess from anyone capable. They find paladins to be a little too loud, and rarely like to take orders from anyone. They do oddly get along with bards exceptionally well, finding true worth and delight in their story telling and performances.

    Role: Blink Raiders tend to be harassers, able to move about the battlefield almost entirely unimpeded and to hit hard when they do strike. They can decently survive attacks, and work well to protect weaker allies from enemies the front line fighters can't get to. They are excellent at stepping in and weakening or killing a foe before moving on to the next one.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Blink Raider's have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: A Blink Raider’s Wisdom is vital to their psionic powers, determining their power level and power points. Strength is usually one of their most important abilities, determining their melee power. Their Dexterity determines their accuracy if they are ranged, and adds to their armor class. Constitution serves to increase Fortitude saves and hit points allowing them to survive in combat. Intelligence affects what skills they can use to their advantage. Charisma is their least important ability.
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As barbarian, or as race.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Blink Raider.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Blink Raiders are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, and all types of armor (heavy, medium, and light), but not with shields.

    Home Is Where the Body Is(Ex, Ps): Due to the time spent traveling between matter, Blink Raiders have learned some control over the molecules in her body. As long as she psionically focused, a Blink Raider may treat her body as being inside of an elemental plane she knows well. At start this only refers whatever plane she grew up on, but with a successful Knowledge (planes) check (DC 30) she may add another plane to this list. A Blink Raider may only add a new plane once a year, and she must have spent the majority of that year in that plane or one inherently similar in make up.

    Blink Step (Ex, Ps): As long as she is psionically focused, a Blink Raider may teleport a distance equal to half her move speed as a move action. This provokes attacks of opportunity.

    Planar Sommelier



    You'll never know a good time, until you drank Water Plane beer with the Fire Elementals.

    A Planar Sommelier starts as a quirky buffer, evolves into a decent summoner, and then ends up a ridiculous mixture of both with a touch of blasting and utility thrown in.

    Adventures: A Planar Sommelier adventures to drink of course. Either to get stone drunk on planar drinks, or simply to expand his palate, the Planar Sommelier roams the worlds in search of the best booze.

    Characteristics: Depending on the planar drinks he sampled, a Planar Somelier can cover a variety of roles. By default, they work as pretty decent summoners.

    Alignment: Having spend most of the time on the Inner Planes, most Planar Sommeliers end up being Neutral on the alignment spectrum. They mostly care about having a good time with their drinking buddies and sampling the next alcoholic beverage that comes their way.

    Religion: If there is a god of drinking, the Planar Sommelier knows him, if not he doesn't outright worship him.

    Background: Simply tasting a planar drink can change a person forever. Most Planar Sommelier started out by testing another Sommelier's planar drink. Either the taste, or the abilities granted were enough of a lure to go down the path of the Planar Sommelier.

    Races: Dwarves. And every other humanoid race, but mostly Dwarves.

    Other Classes: Planar Sommeliers love hanging out with Bards. Barbarians, fighters and rogues are also pleasant company, as long as they can hold their liquor. They don't get along well with the more studious types, like wizards or clerics.

    Role: Early game, the Planar Sommelier is an okay warrior, capable of granting small buffs to one of his allies. After he gets his Drinking Buddies ability he becomes much more versatile, allowing him to summon elementals to scout, fight or tank. As his planes choice expands so do his capabilities, from blasting, to transportation, to better fighting.

    Adaptation: A Planar Sommelier is a tongue in cheek class, revolving around magical alcoholic drinks. You can remove all the drinking nonsence and make it something of a planar invoker with a focus on summoning.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Planar Sommelier.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Planar Sommelier is proficient with light armor and all simple weapons.

    Wines Sampled (Ex): The Planar Sommelier would be the Sommelier if he hadn't visited at least another plane to sample it's wines. During his career, a Planar Sommelier receives invitations from another plane in order to sample their wines, ales and asorted spirits. At any point afterwards he can accept the invitation. When he does, he is shifted there for a day, in a hospitable area for his race where he can taste the drinks of that plane. When the tasting is over, the Sommelier returns to the same place he was when he accepted the invitation but with a deep understanding of the plane he was and it's inhabitants.

    At 1st level, choose one of the 4 elemental planes: Air, Fire, Earth or Water. You have visited the chosen plane, sampled it's wines and made drinking buddies of it's inhabitants. Sampling a plane's wines grants numerous benefits depending on the plane. Any granted Spell-like ability has a caster level equal to your class level and a Save DC of 10 + spell level + your charisma modifier:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Air: gain a bonus of 5 ft to your speed plus 5 ft per 5 class levels and you gain Lightning Reflexes as a Bonus Feat.
    • Fire: gain a bonus of +1 to your damage rolls plus 1 per 4 class levels and you gain Improved Initiative as a Bonus Feat.
    • Earth: gain DR 1/-. This increases by 1 every 3 class levels. You also gain Improved Toughness as a Bonus Feat.
    • Water: gain a dodge bonus of +1 to your AC plus 1 per 5 class levels and Combat Expertise as a Bonus Feat.

    Starting at 5th level, you may add the following planes to the list of planes that can invite you:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Ice: You gain cold resistance equal to your class level and you always succeed on balance checks with a DC lower than 20.
    • Ooze: You gain acid resistance equal to your level and you ignore difficult terrain.
    • Magma: You gain fire resistance equal to your class level and you may make your skin hot to the touch for a number of minutes equal to your class level. This is a supenatural ability that can be activated as an immediate action a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. Any creature that you touch, or that attacks you with a natural weapon is dealt fire damage equal to your class level. Attacking you with a manufactured weapon deals half damage to the attacker.
    • Smoke: You are immune to all cloud based effects like Fog Cloud, Freezing Fog, Cloud Kill and similar spells. This doesn't affect concealment due to darkness, bluring and similar. You may use Fog Cloud as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier.

    Starting at 9th level, you may add the following planes to the list of planes that can invite you:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Lightning: You gain electricity resistance equal to your class level and you may use Lightning Bolt as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 13th level you may use Chain Lightning instead.
    • Vacuum: You may use False Life at will as a Spell-like ability. You may also use Enervation as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier.
    • Steam: You may use Fly and Blink on yourself as a Spell-like ability, a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 13th level you may use Wind Walk instead.
    • Salt: You don't have to eat or drink anymore. You may use Create Food and Water as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 13th level you may use Heroes' Feast instead.
    • Mineral: You gain 50% to be immune to critical hits. At 13th level you become immune to critical hits.
    • Dust: You ignore any damage reduction of Constructs and any hardness below 15. You may use Shatter as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 13th level you may use Disintegrate instead.
    • Radiance: You become immune to blinding effects, but not blindness induced due to darkness and may use Daylight as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 15th level you may use Sunbeam instead.
    • Ash: You don't have to breath any more and may use Stinking Cloud as a Spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier. At 13th level you may use Cloudkill instead.

    Starting at 15th level, you may add the following planes to the list of planes that can invite you:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Positive Energy Plane: You gain Fast Healing 5 and with a touch attack you may infuse a creature with so much possitive energy that it has to dance wildly or explode in a spectacular display of light. This mimics an Irresistible Dance, although it's a non-mind affecting Supernatural effect. It has no save, can be used once per day, and at the start of each turn, for 3 turns, the victim chooses wether to dance during it's turn or take 20d6 positive energy damage.
    • Negative Energy Plane: You become immune to negative energy effects, and with a touch, you may cause a creature to lose all will to act. Once per day you may make a touch attack that cause the target to choose wether to do nothing during it's turn or suffer 3d4 negative levels for 3 turns. A creature that does nothing is considered flat-footed even if it is immune to being flat-footed. If the creature is undead, it suffers the effect of the Positive Energy Plane instead.

    You choose another plane every 2 levels, starting at 3rd level.

    Distil Planar Drink (Su): A Planar Sommelier can reproduce any planar drink he has sampled. This process requires a vial filled with water, and it takes 10 minutes per vial. A Planar Sommelier can have a number of planar drinks equal 1 plus half his class level active at a time. If he exceeds his limit, an older drink turns back to water.
    When making a planar drink, they Planar Sommelier chooses witch plane's wine he creates. He must have sampled a wine in order to reproduce it. Anyone drinking the planar drink enjoys the benefits of the Planar Sommelier's Wines Sampled ability for 10 minutes. If the planar drink grants a Spell-like ability, it is only usable one during the duration and it has a caster level equal to the Planar Sommelier's class level.
    If the Planar Sommelier drinks the drink, he regains 1 use of the Spell-like ability. All other numerical effects stack, but a creature can benefit from a planar drink once during it's duration. Drinking the same drink twice during the duration wastes the second drink. Drinking another drink grants it's effects normaly.
    Drinking a drink is a Standard action that provokes attacks of opportunity.

    Planar Adaptability (Ex): At 2nd level, the Planar Sommelier is under the effects of a constant Endure Elements effect, and ignores the harmful effects of planes that he has sampled wines from.

    Drinking Buddies (Su): A Planar Sommelier of 3th level and higher has made many friends on the outer planes, that he may now summon to his location for help. As a Standard Action, a Planar Sommelier may now mimic the Summon Nature's Ally II spell, but only to summon elementals from one of the planes that he has sampled wines from, a number of times per day equal to his charisma modifier.
    He always summons the same elementals with each use of this ability, and the elemental summoned is better than average.
    Use the Elite Array to determine the Ability Scores for each elemental summoned. You must also know the name of the Elemental. For example, you always summon Bob the Small Fire Elemental with Str 15, Dex 17, Con 13, Int 6, Wis 11, Cha 9 when you use this ability.
    At 5th level and every 2 class levels afterward, you may use the next level of the Summon Nature's Ally spell. The caster level for this effect is equal to your Planar Sommelier class level.

    Brew Potion(Ex): At 4th level, the Planar Sommelier gains Brew Potion as a Bonus Feat even though he is not a spellcaster. He may create any potion like normal with a maximum caster level equal to his class level, but to emulate the knowledge of a spell he must succeed on a DC 20 Spellcraft check. At 8th level he may produce up to 3 potions in the same time it would take to make one. At 16th level he may produce up to 6 potions instead of one. The cost is the same as making the total number of potions.

    Planar Cocktail (Ex): By mixing 2 or more planar drinks, a Planar Sommelier creates a Planar Cocktail that grants the effects of both at the same time. A Planar Cocktail counts as a number of planar drinks equal to the amount of drinks used to create it.
    Creating a Planar Cocktail consumes a Full Round action but the Planar Sommelier may drink the cocktail as a swift action on the same turn.
    At 6th level the Planar Sommelier can create Planar Cocktails that use 2 drinks. At 8th level, the Planar Sommelier may spike a Planar cocktail with one of his potions. At 10th level, the Planar Sommelier may add a 3rd drink. At 12th level, he may add a second potion and at 14th level he may add a 3rd potion.

    Move the Party to another Party (Sp): Twice per day, a 13th level Planar Sommelier can use Plane Shift as a Spell-like ability to go to any plane he has sampled a wine from, or to his home plane.

    Free Drinks on Arrival (Ex): Whenever a 16th level Planar Sommelier uses his Drinking Buddies ability, he may expend one of his Planar Drinks or Planar Cocktails. All elementals summoned this way recieve a shot of the expended drink on arrival, gaining it's benefits for 2 rounds.

    Surprise Party (Su): Once per day, an 18th level Planar Sommelier may mimic the Elemental Swarm spell to summon many of his Drinking Buddies. All elementals must be from your Drinking Buddies list. Your Drinking Buddies stay for the duration but are not compelled to obey you, though they have a Friendly attitude towards you by default.You can't use Drinking Buddies to summon creatures allready summoned by Surprise Party for the duration of the Surprise Party. The caster level for this effect is equal to your Planar Sommelier class level.

    The Party to End all Other Parties (Su): At 20th level, the Planar Sommelier may use his Surprise Party ability and his Free Drinks on Arrival at the same time. The Elementals enjoy the Benefit of the drink consumed for the duration of the Surprise Party.

    Quasi-Warrior

    "Wishy-washy primitive heathens, the whole lot of them. True Strength comes from devotion to a cause and purity of action!"
    -Alhandra, Paladin of Heironeous and Lindroos, Blackgaurd of Hextor

    Quasi-Warriors devote themselves to mastery of the positive and negative charge of a specific element. Applying the elements in combat both offensively and defensively.

    Adventures: Quasi-Warriors often adventure to survive, using their talents as Mercenaries or Bandits. Some journey out into the world to bring wealth and glory to their tribe. Others see combat as a meditative process, thus crawling through long forgotten dungeons and battling monsters is a way of focusing the mind on present matters and clearing one's mind of all else. Occasionally a group of Quasi-Warriors from each element will join forces to take on a greater threat to their respective homes.

    Characteristics: Quasi-Warriors tend to wade into the thick of battle with little regard for their own safety. Their offensive and defensive abilities keep them as primary targets keeping the heat off of their allies. Their support abilities can keep enemies at bay or they can help support allies. Quasi-Fire Warriors tend to prefer straight blades and Axes, many learning two weapon fighting styles. Quasi-Earth warriors usually fight with blunt weapons and shield or two handed, and at higher levels don't even bother with armor. Quasi-Water warriors often enter combat with thrusting weapons like spears and tridents, and many learn to fight with the net. Quasi-Air Warriors prefer to use curved blades made of iron and copper.

    Alignment: Quasi-Warriors are often on the extremes of either chaos or law, being either contemplatives of the nature of diametrically opposed elements, or reveling in their primal nature. On the good-evil axis they tend towards neutrality. Since the nature of their abilities focuses on both positive and negative energies, most consider both forces to have equal merit.

    Religion: Most Quasi-Warriors do not worship a single deity, but rather worship or revere two deities that are opposed to each-other, yet are also similar; Especially the Elemental Princes of good and Evil. It is not uncommon to find a Quasi-Water Warrior to give prayers to both Olhydra and Ben-hadar, or A Quasi-Fire Warrior burning tributes to both Imix and Zaaman Rul. Though uncommon, a quasi-warrior may worship non-elemental gods that are both equal and opposed. A lawful Quasi-Warrior may worship both Heironeous and Hextor. An Elven or Orcish Quasi-warrior could pray to Corellon Larethian and Gruumsh. As one could probably guess, this does not make them popular with practitioners of those faiths.

    Background: Quasi-Warriors are trained by others of the same element. For some it is a tribal rite of passage to bond with the light and darkness of an element. Others are trained in monasteries dedicated to each element. These tribes and monasteries are usually found deep in the wilderness surrounded by their element. Quasi-Fire Warriors can be found at the foot of an active volcano or around an oasis in a vast desert. Quasi-Warriors dedicated to earth can be placed in Mines or in barren wastelands. Quasi-Air Warriors can be found at high altitudes where the air is thin or in open planes where they construct pillars of lodestone to call the lightning. Quasi-Water Warriors gather around sea coves or near natural hot-springs.

    Races: As the originators of the class, humans and orcs make up the bulk of Quasi-Warriors. "Half-" Races are also drawn to the duality aspect of the class. Elves with interest in elements are more likely to be druids, as the Quasi-Warriors are more destructive. Dwarves, especially those far removed from dwarven society, have been known to join tribes of Qasi-Earth Warriors. In the world of Athas, Tribes of Thri-Kreen have been known to learn this class.

    Other Classes: Quasi-Warriors get along best with Barbarians, seeing something of a kinship with them, even the lawful ones respect their primal nature. Fighters respect their combat prowess and see them as a welcome brother in arms. Arcane casters, especially elementalists, see them as a curiosity and often spark friendships in the hopes that they can learn more about the elements from them. In contrast, Clerics and Paladins find their relationship with Religion appalling. This is doubly true if they worship one of the gods that the Quasi-Warrior does. Druids and Quasi-Warriors both have alliances with natural forces, though some younger druids may not understand the relationship of the negative elements and see it as destructive to nature.

    Role: The Quasi-Warrior is a melee combatant first and foremost. At low levels, they will be similar to a Fighter. A Quasi-Warrior at mid-levels can deal heavy damage or avoid damage or lock down enemies depending on his element. At High-Levels they can be nigh-unstoppable in the middle of battle, while stopping those that try to run or try to attack any other targets.

    Adaptation: If your campaign setting does not have Quasi-emental planes, the Quasi-Warrior can be adapted to any source of elemental power, focusing on indirect uses of that element. In Athas, Quasi-Warriors are staunch guardians of the priesthood, acting as guards and soldiers for the elemental clerics. A Quasi-Fire Warrior could easily be converted into a divine warrior that uses powers from both Celestial and Infernal sources.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Quasi-Warriors have the following game statistics.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Quasi-Warrior

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Quasi-Warrior is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields)

    Quasi-elemental Focus(Ex): At first level the Quasi-Warrior chooses an element to train their focus in from Earth, Fire, Water, or Air. This selection determines which future abilities the warrior receives. In addition, they receive a +2 bonus on saving throws and a +2 bonus to their armor class against spells with the descriptor of their chosen element. They also add Terran (if Earth), Ignan (If Fire), Aquan (If Water), or Auran (if Air) to their languages known.

    Positive Elemental Support (Su): At First level the Quasi-Warrior gains a supernatural ability based on the positive aspect of his element. Any saving throws are DC 10 + 1/2 his Class Level + his Charisma Bonus:
    • Fire - Radiant Palm: As a standard action, the Quasi-Fire Warrior can hold out his open hand and create a flash of brilliant white light in his enemy's eyes. A single target adjacent to the Quasi-Fire Warrior must make a Reflex save or be blinded for 1d4 rounds. This ability can be used a number of times per day equal to his class level.
    • Earth - Lucky Crystal: 1/day the Quasi-Earth warrior can take five minutes to preform a ritual in which he plucks a quartz crystal from any stone or earth. Whoever holds this stone may make a single re-roll on any Attack roll, Damage Roll, Skill Check, or Saving Throw. They may also force an enemy to re-roll an attack roll and have them take the lower result. The stone is consumed upon use. At fourth level and every three levels after that, he may make another stone per day (2 at 4rd, 3 at 7th, 4 at 10th etc). A Quasi-earth Warrior may only have one stone at any time.
    • Water - Cleansing Steam: With a touch and some soothing heat and steam, the Quasi-Water Warrior can heal wounds. As a standard action the Quasi-Water Warrior can heal a number of hit points to a touched target each day equal to His Class Level x His Charisma Bonus. This only affects living targets and does NOT damage undead.
    • Air - Stunning Touch: The Quasi-Air Warrior can channel electricity through his fingertips giving the nervous system of his target a surprising jolt. A number of times per day equal to his class level, the Quasi-Air Warrior can make a melee touch attack against a foe as a standard action. They must then make a fortitude save. If they fail they are stunned for 1 round.


    Negative Elemental Attack (Su): At second level, the Quasi-Warrior gains an ability pertaining to the negative aspect of his element to help him attack his enemies:
    • Fire - Ashen Weapon: In combat, the Quasi-Fire Warrior's weapon is coated in smoldering ash. When this weapon deals damage, the ash clings to the target dealing 1d4 additional fire damage, then 1d4 cold damage (due to the clinging ash absorbing heat from the subject) for each successful strike on the following round.
    • Earth - Dust Devil: Whenever a Quasi-Earth Warrior successfully hits a foe on a charge, his blow releases a cloud of dust that clouds his target's vision. All attacks made by the subject of the strike have a 50% miss chance for a number of rounds equal to the Quasi-Earth Warrior's Class level.
    • Water - Salt the Wound: Any weapon that the Quasi-Water Warrior wields is covered in a coarse and salty brine. When he successfully damages a living foe with a Piercing or Slashing weapon, they take an additional 1d4 points of damage and must make a fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the Quasi-Water Warrior's Class Level + his Charisma Bonus) or take a -2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks for a number of rounds equal to the Quasi-Water Warrior's class level due to the stinging pain.
    • Air - Vacuum Strike: A Quasi-Air Warrior's weapon is sheathed in an airless Vacuum, leaving no resistance as he swings it. Any weapon he wields has the Keen property.


    Positive Elemental Defense (Su):At third level a Quasi-Warrior can call upon the positively charged aspects of his element to defend himself:
    • Fire - Glare Aura: While in combat, a Quasi-Fire Warrior glows with a fierce radiant corona. Any enemy who can see the Quasi-Fire Warrior has difficulty looking directly at him, taking a -2 penalty on all attack rolls against him and his allies in the same line of sight.
    • Earth - Mineral Armor: As a standard action, a Quasi-Earth Warrior can call an armor made out of raw ores and crystals to protect him. This armor provides an armor bonus equal to 3/4 his class level. This armor moves to accommodate the Quasi-Earth Warrior's movements and thus has no armor check, penalty movement penalty, or spell failure chance, though the weight causes a penalty on balance, climb, swim, and jump checks equal to half the bonus (rounded down). The armor lasts as long as he needs it and can be dismissed as an immediate action.
    • Water - Steam Cloud: A Quasi-Water Warrior can, as an immediate action, summon up a cloud of thick steam around him once per encounter. This cloud fills his space and every space adjacent to him. Those inside the cloud have total concealment from outside and partial concealment from each other. The cloud lasts a number of rounds equal to the Quasi-Water Warrior's class level.
    • Air - Static Field: The space around Quasi-Air Warrior is filled with an electrostatic charge whenever he is in combat. This field gives him a +1 deflection bonus to his AC. This bonus increases by 1 every additional four levels he has (+2 at 7th level, +3 at 11th, etc.)


    Elemental Resistance I (Ex): At Fourth level, as the Quasi-warrior bonds with his element, he can withstand environmental extremes and gains the effect of a constant Endure Elements spell.

    Elemental Pact (Su): Starting At 5th level the Quasi-Warrior can preform a ritual to call an elemental. He may call a single elemental with the subtype of his focus, with HD less than or equal to his class level. The ritual takes 10 minutes to preform and requires 500gp per Hit Die of the Elemental in materials and tribute. The Elemental will follow the caster for 1 day per caster level, or preform a task that can take up to 1 week per level if it is nonhazardous, or 1 day per 2 levels otherwise. The elemental returns to its home plane at the end of the duration or when the task is completed and may be dismissed at any time. He may only have one elemental in his service at one time, and the elemental may not have any of the other quasi-warrior's subtypes in addition to its own.

    Negative Elemental Conjuration (Su): At 6th level a Quasi-Warrior gains the ability to use the negative aspect of their element to harm or disable their enemies usable once per encounter as a standard action. Any saving throws are DC 10 + 1/2 his Class Level + his Charisma Bonus:
    • Fire - Soot Blast: A Quasi-Fire Warrior can release a 30ft cone of smoldering ash from the palm of his hand in a violent burst. Any caught in the blast take 1d6 fire damage per level and 1d4 cold damage per level the following round. A reflex save halves the initial damage and prevents the secondary damage
    • Earth - Dust Storm: Placing his hand on the ground a Quasi-Earth warrior can conjure a violent dust storm around a single target within 50ft. They must make a fortitude save or be blinded and unable to do anything other than cough and choke for a number of rounds equal to The Quasi-Earth Warrior's class level. If he makes his save he can manage to act freely, though he is still blinded for 1 round. The subject is entitled to make a new save each round to regain his senses enough to exit the storm.
    • Water - Salt Lance: The Quasi-Water Warrior forms a lance in his hands out of pure salt, which he then throws at his target within 80ft making a ranged attack roll. If he hits, the lance deals 1d4+1 points of piercing damage per level plus twice his strength modifier. A living subject must then make a fortitude save or take a -4 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks for a number of rounds equal to the Quasi-Water Warrior's class level. This penalty does not stack with Salt the Wound.
    • Air - Void Rend: With an upward slash of his weapon, the Quasi-Air Warrior releases a wave, empty of air that cuts through targets in a 60ft line, dealing 1d6 points of slashing damage per level (Reflex Half)


    Negative Elemental Support (Su): At eighth level, The Quasi-Warrior learns a supernatural ability based on the negative aspect of his element. Any saving throws are DC 10 + 1/2 his Class Level + his Charisma Bonus:
    • Fire - Ash Tattoo: once per day per four class levels the Quasi-Fire warrior can take ten minutes to draw markings on himself or an ally that bestow great luck in a critical situation. The barer of the tattoos may activate them as an immediate action to gain a luck bonus equal to half the Quasi-Fire Warrior's class level on any attack roll, Saving Throw, Skill or ability check, or to his Armor Class. He may expend it after he knows the result of the roll. The tattoos disappear after being used or until dawn of the next day, whichever comes first.
    • Earth - Unsure Footing: By stomping his foot in the direction of an adjacent opponent he can cause the surface below the target's feet to temporarily have the consistency of loose sand. The subject must make a reflex save or fall prone. He may use this ability once per day per class level as a standard action.
    • Water - Brine Splash: As a standard action, the Quasi-Water Warrior spits out a spray of pungent brine at an adjacent target. The scent of the brine is so strong that they must make a fortitude save or be Nauseated for one round then sickened for 1d8 rounds after that. If they make their save they are still sickened for 1 round. A Quasi-Water Warrior may use this ability once per day per class level.
    • Air - Empty Space: As a standard action, A Quasi-Air warrior can manipulate the air around himself or an ally within 30ft and render them invisible as the invisibility spell. This ability can function for a number of rounds per day equal to the Quasi-Air Warrior's class level and need not be contiguous.


    Positive Elemental Attack (Su): At 10th level, a Quasi-Warrior can harness the destructive power of his element and channel it through this weapon:
    • Fire - Streaking Blade: When the Quasi-Fire Warrior swings his weapon it streaks with a radiant white trail. This has a distracting effect on any trying to evade his blows. Opponents in melee with the Quasi-Fire Warrior lose the benefits of Uncanny Dodge and Improved Uncanny Dodge. They also may not withdraw, take a 5ft step, or tumble out of a threatened without provoking an attack of opportunity if they attempt to do so. They are aware that they will provoke a threat if they make an attempt.
    • Earth - Creeping Crystal Strike: The Quasi-Earth warrior can make a single melee attack on his opponent as a standard action which, if it hits, encases the target in a creeping crystal that may root him to the ground. This is treated as if he had been hit with a tanglefoot bag except that the Reflex DC to avoid being stuck to the ground is 10+1/2 the Quasi-Earth Warrior's class level+his charisma modifier, the crystal has a break DC of 5+the Quasi-Earth Warrior's class level+his charisma modifier, and has a number of hit points equal to his Class level plus his charisma modifier. The crystal is vulnerable to the shatter spell. This attack is usable once every 1d4+1 rounds.
    • Water - Scalding Blow: When drawn, a Quasi-Water Warrior's weapon is sheathed in a fog of super-heated steam. The weapon deals 1d8 fire damage in addition to its normal damage.
    • Air - Lightning Crash: As a standard action the Quasi-Air Warrior can make a single melee attack against a target, if it hits it deals the weapon damage plus 1d6 electricity damage per 2 levels. This attack may be used once every 1d4+1 rounds.


    Negative Elemental Defense (Su): At 12th level the Quasi-Warrior can harness the power of his element to defend himself:
    • Fire - Embers on the wind: A number of times per day equal to one half his class level a Quasi-Fire Warrior can, as an immediate action, appear to immolate himself in a flash becoming a loose collection of dying embers and reform at another location within 30ft. He may pass through any barrier that is not airtight. If he uses this ability in response to an attack, the attacker suffers a 50% miss chance and adjacent melee attackers and grapplers take 1 point of fire damage per class level of the Quasi-Fire Warrior.
    • Earth - Dustcloud Defense: When in battle the Quasi-Earth Warrior is surrounded by a constant dust cloud that hides him from his opponents. This cloud grants him concealment (20% miss chance) from all attacks.
    • Water - Cured Hide: When a Quasi-Water Warrior enters combat, his skin thickens and becomes tough like leather. His base natural armor increases by 3 and increases by 1 every four levels after that.
    • Air - Vacuum Shield:Pockets of vacuum constantly open and close around the Quasi-Air Warrior when he is in battle. This alters the trajectory of arrows and other missile weapons giving him DR 10/Magic against ranged weapons.


    Elemental Resistance II (Ex): At 14th level the Quasi-Warrior has become more attuned to his element, he is no longer subject to the adverse effects of any of the inner planes. he is also granted a benefit based on his Elemental Focus:
    • Fire: The Quasi-Fire Warrior's connection to the plane of radiance and Ash give him a calming internal warmth granting him resistance to Cold 10
    • Earth: A Quasi-Earth Warrior's relationship with the Mineral and Dust planes ground him, granting him Resistance to Electricity 10
    • Water: Thanks to his connection to the planes of salt and steam, his body has become calmed and his mind relaxed. Effects that cause Fear or Fatigue are reduced by one order of magnitude (Effects that cause Exhaustion only cause Fatigue, Panicked becomes Frightened, Frightened becomes Shaken. They are immune to the effects that cause Shaken or Fatigue conditions)
    • Air: Due to his relationship with with the quasi-elemental plane of Vacuum, a Quasi-Air Warrior no longer needs to breathe.


    Positive Elemental Conjuration(Su):At 16th level the Quasi-Warrior can harness the positive aspect of his element to great effect. These abilities are activated as a standard action and have a save DC of 10+1/2 his class level+his charisma modifier
    • Fire - Solar Emanation: For a number of rounds per day equal to half his class level, the Quasi-Fire Warrior can become a living conduit for the plane of radiance. He becomes a beacon of intensely bright light extending 160ft and gives shadowy illumination out 320ft. He becomes painful to look at, invoking a 50% miss chance as if he had total concealment. Those adjacent to him when he first activates this power must make a fortitude save or be permanently blinded. Undead can not remain within 60ft of him and must take any action to leave the area. Unlike the daylight spell, this 60ft area is treated as true sunlight. The rounds that this is used need not be continuous.
    • Earth - Gemstone Trap: Once Per Encounter the Quasi-Earth Warrior conjures a perfect diamond the size of a fist from the Mineral Plane and leaves it hovering at a single point within 60ft. If any that the Quasi-Earth Warrior does not designate as allies pass within five feet of the gem, the diamond explodes scattering shards in a 30ft radius burst dealing 1d6 points of piercing damage per level (Reflex Half). The gem stays dormant for one round per class level, then it returns to the Mineral Plane if it hasn't exploded.
    • Water - Steam Geyser: Once per Encounter a Quasi-Water Warrior can conjure geysers of superheated Steam from the ground beneath his enemies feet. He may target one enemy per four class levels all within 60ft of him. These enemies take 1d6 fire damage per Quasi-Water Warrior level and are knocked prone (Reflex Half and are not knocked prone)
    • Air - Lighting Coil: Once per encounter a Quasi-Air Warrior can point his finger and fire a bolt of electricity at a target within 100ft. The Quasi-Air Warrior makes a raged touch attack, if it hits the bolt coils around target entangling them as a net. Each round the subject takes 1d6 electricity damage per three class levels and must make a Fortitude save to do anything other than writhe in agony. The coils last for a number of rounds equal to the Quasi-Warrior's Class level and have an escape artist and break DC equal to the 10+the 1/2 Quasi-Air Warrior's class level+his charisma modifier and a number of hit points equal to his class level + his charisma modifier.


    Elemental Resistance III (Ex): At 18th level the Quasi-Warrior becomes so attuned to his plane that he is granted a powerful immunity based on his focus:
    • Fire: A Quasi-Fire warrior becomes immune to fire damage and blindness.
    • Earth: A Quasi-Earth warrior cannot be blown away, knocked down, bull rushed or tripped and benefits from the effects a constant freedom of movement spell
    • Water: A Quasi-Water Warrior becomes immune to poison, paralysis, and stunning. The Quasi-Water Warrior's movement is never reduced from terrain.
    • Air: A Quasi-Air Warrior cannot be disarmed, is never denied his dexterity bonus when flat-footed, and cannot be flanked.


    Quasi-Perfection (Ex): At 20th level the Quasi-Warrior becomes something more than man, a perfect embodiment of Quasi-elemental fury. He gains immunity to critical hits and precision damage, Damage Reduction 5/-, and Darkvision 60ft. He no longer needs to eat or sleep, being sustained by his connection to his plane, and no longer suffers penalties for aging.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XIX - Inner Might

    Gammon

    "Life and death isn't a dichotomy. From a non-binary, spectrumatic viewpoint, it's more of a nuanced, blended sort of...triangle thingie."

    No one talks about the seventh inner plane.

    The existence of the Forlorn is something that living and undead minds are not designed to comprehend, as it violates the simple Us vs. Them mentality common to most sentient creatures. They are best described as a third prong on the axis of positive and negative, a numerical sign represented neither by suprlus nor debt. There are three, not two.

    Forlorn are entities nither living nor dead, and are powered by a third energy type after positive and negative, commonly referred to among texts about Forlorn as colour energy. This energy has its own inner plane, the Colour Energy Plane, but it is very difficult to access by conventional means as both life and undeath are, by and large, violently opposed to it. Sentient undead and living creatures have been destroying methods of reaching the Colour Energy Plane, and its very existence is now a secret, requring a DC 35 Knowledge (The Planes) check to know about it. The material focus for a Plane Shift spell with a destination of the Colour Energy Plane is not found in the common spell component pouch. Creating it is simple (DC 5 Craft [Metalworking] check), but one can only do so if they already know about the Colour Energy Plane.

    Sometimes, a Forlorn will blunder into the Material Plane somehow, and find themselves trapped there. Or perhaps they merely go there as a challenge. Whatever the case, Forlorn creatures can exist as adventurers or monsters. Generally, this is only very temporary; Forlorn creatures wither and cease existing when not supplied with colour energy, which the material plane has little of. The exception is a Forlorn race of human-shaped creatures known as Gammons. Gammons are capable of self-healing, and thus can persist as adventurers in the Material Plane. Some come to like it there, and join adventuring parties, which tend to be inclusive of strange beings and pracices so long as they get along.

    The following base class is a racial class for a new race, the Gammon, which has a new creature type, Forlorn. Levles in this base class count as racial hit dice for a Gammon. A Gammon must take at least one level of the Gammon racial class, but is not obligated to continue beyond level 1. They may freely (and without penalties) multiclass in and out of this base class after level 1.

    Spoiler: New Energy Type: Colour
    Show
    Colour energy is akin to positive or negative energy. It heals creatures of the forlorn type and damages both undead and living creatures. It is associated with a rainbow of colors, but the manifested color in tint spells is a vivid pink.


    Spoiler: New Inner Plane: Colour Energy Plane
    Show
    The colour energy plane appears dimly lit, but all objects are very clearly visible, thier colors vibrant. Like the positive and negative energy planes, the colour energy plane is generally empty except for energons and a few rare creatures that have adapted to colour energy, such as the growing forlorn population.

    Planar traits:
    • Subjective Directional Gravity
    • Normal Time
    • Infinite Size
    • Alterable Morphic
    • Major Colour-Dominant. A Major Colour-Dominant plane inflicts 5 points of colour damage to all creatures within at the start of every round. Any creature damageable by colour energy loses their fast healing and regeneration while on a Major Colour-Dominant plane.
    • Enhanced Magic: Spells and spell-like abilities that use colour energy are maximized (as if the Maximize Spell metamagic had been used on them, but the spells don’t require higher-level slots). Class abilities that use colour energy gain a +10 bonus on the roll to determine Hit Dice affected.
    • Impeded Magic: Spells and spell-like abilities that use negative and positive energy are impeded, including inflict and cure spells. These spells and spell-like abilities can still be used, but a successful Spellcraft check (DC 15 + level of the spell) must be made to do so.


    If you are using colour energy in your campaign, add the following trait to the Positive and Negative Energy planes.

    • Impeded Magic: Spells and spell-like abilities that use colour energy are impeded, including tint spells. These spells and spell-like abilities can still be used, but a successful Spellcraft check (DC 15 + level of the spell) must be made to do so.


    Spoiler: New Creature Type: Forlorn
    Show
    A forlorn is a creature animated by colour energy, in the same way that living creatures are animated by positive and undead are animated by negative.

    Features

    A forlorn creature has the following features:

    • d6 Hit Dice
    • Base Attack Bonus equal to 3/4 HD (as cleric)
    • Good Fortutide saves
    • Skill points equal to (6 + Int modifier, minimum 1) per Hit Die, with quadruple skill points for the first Hit Die


    A forlorn creature possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).

    • Darvision out to 60 feet
    • No bonus Hit Points from Constitution.
    • Bonus Colour Hit Points equal to half of their lowest ability score multiplied by their Hit Dice. Colour Hit Points are refreshed by resting for 8 hours, but cannot be healed otherwise unless specifically noted.
    • Does not naturally heal damage. Whatever damage would be healed from resting is instead subtracted from the forlorn's hit points (not colour hit points). Thus, forlorn require healing from colour energy on a regular basis.
    • Forlorn take damage from positive and negative enrgy, and are healed by colour energy.
    • Proficient with all simple weapons, its natural weapons and any weapons mentioned in its entry.
    • Proficient with whatever type of armor (light, medium, or heavy) it is described as wearing, as well as all lighter types. Forlorn not indicated as wearing armor are not proficient with armor. Forlorn are proficient with shields if they are proficient with any form of armor.
    • Forlorn breathe and sleep, but do not eat. Eating affects a forlorn the same way that failing to eat affects a humanoid, and vice versa. Forlorn are generally repulsed by the concept of eating.


    Spoiler: New Race: Gammon
    Show

    A gammon is humanoid-shaped, with pink-red skin and blood-red eyes with white pupils. Gammons are typically between 4' 6" and 5' 2", with a long dark-red mane of hair that reaches to their hips. Their hair encircles their neck, but it usually pulled back. Gammons have board, muscular legs with wide hips, but thin arms and upper torsos.

    Gammons are native to the colour energy plane, where they form small societies upon planetoids of their own construction. These planeroids often come from material on the Material plane, but can be from any plane. Planetoids usually house no more than 300 gammons--any larger, and the societies break apart, usually accompanied by cracking the planetoid in two and reshaping it into two separate ones.

    Gammon racial traits:
    • Forlorn Type: Gammons are Forlorn, and have all of the associated traits.
    • +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma: Gammon are cunning, but their existence is off-putting to the living and dead.
    • +2 racial bonus to Balance, Knowledge (The Planes), and Diplomacy. In addition, they can make Knowledge (The Planes) checks untrained. Their bodies are shaped in such a way that their center of gravity is low, they are familiar with the planes due to coming from an exotic one, and they know how to mediate in small groups.
    • Spell-like abilities: A gammon with Charisma equal to or greater than 10 has the following spell like abilities: prestidigitation, tint minor wounds, and arcane mark. Each are usable 1/day.


    Spoiler: New Spells: Tint
    Show
    Tint spells are the equivalent of cure and inflict spells, except that they deal colour energy damage instead of positive or negative energy damage. They can be prepared by clerics that are neutral on the good-evil axis, using the spell level of the corresponding cure or inflict spell. The cleric must choose at character creation to channel colour energy instead of positive or negative energy, but they can still choose whether to turn or rebuke undead.

    The 6th-level spell hue charges a subject with colour energy that deals 10 points of damage per caster level (to a maximum of 150 points at 15th level). If the creature successfully saves, hue deals half this amount, but it cannot reduce the target’s hit points to less than 1.

    If used on a forlorn creature, hue acts like heal.

    The 9th-level spell mass hue functions like mass heal, except that it deals colour damage instead of positive energy damage.


    Adventures: Gammons typically adventure on the Material because they need to get home, but may find their friendships or other quests to be more important along the way. Some deliberately go to the Material to test their self-sufficiency, as Gammons are capable of surviving outside of the Colour Energy Plane.

    Characteristics: Gammons have talent with utilities and with combat. Their selection of chromatics allows them to serve in various situations, though with less versatility than arcane spellcasting. Their Colour Touch ability provides them with combat readiness, but a tradeoff between chromatic use and Colour Touch is involved--Gammons cannot invest too much in one role without limiting the use of the other.

    Alignment: Gammons are typically true neutral or follow an alien code of morals, usually described as chaotic evil. Other alignments are possible, but much rarer. In the same way that undead default to being evil, gammons default to neutrality, believing in it as a force like good and evil.

    Religion: Gammons are normally nonreligious, as all gods are either living or dead, none forlorn. A few gammons might worship deities of community.

    Background: Gammons come from the Colour Energy Plane, displaced into a more conventional one. Once there, a gammon may adventure to find a way back, or to establish community with other adventurers.

    Races: Gammons are their own race, but sometimes they will undergo the Dragonborn ritual as a final act of naturalization if they have grown accustomed to life outside of the Colour Energy Plane. As an exception to the general rules that only humanoids can become a Dragonborn of Bahamut, a gammon is a valid subject for the ritual. Their type changed to Humanoid when they undergo the ritual, and their racial traits except for ability score adjustments are overwritten as normal, but their class abilities are unaffected. They are no longer able to heal themselves with their Colour Touch.

    Other Classes: Gammons find all classes exotic compared to the stnadard inhabitants of the Colour Energy Plane, and so are not repulsed from classes such as the hexblade and warlock. Because gammon like to form small groups, they are attracted to classes that support the entire adventuring party, such as bard and marshals. They also have an affinity for those classes related to the planes or have the ability to go there, like wizards.

    Role: See Characteristics.

    Adaptation: The Colour Energy Plane does not have to be a seventh inner plane, if that would be too disrupting to the game cosmology. Instead, it could be a demiplane floating around just inside or outside the shell of the inner planes, which would make it sensible that it is so obscure.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Gammons have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Gammons require Strength to make the most out of their Colour Touch and Constitution for more powerful chromatics, but are otherwise relatively statistic-independent. Gammons should distribute their ability scores evenly, to gain more Colour Hit Points per day.

    Alignment: Any.

    Starting Age: As barbarian.
    Starting Gold: 3d4x10

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the gammon.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Gammons are proficient with simple weapons, light armor, and shields (including tower shields).

    Colour Touch (Su): A gammon can channel colour energy through their touch. Colour Touch replaces a melee attack, and is resolved as a touch attack. At low levels, this means that a gammon's single attack as a standard action can be replaced with a Colour Touch. A gammon can make iterative attacks with their Colour Touch if they have sufficient base attack bonus. In this case, they may make a full attack action, and replace their Colour Touch with an attack. A gammon may mix and match normal weapon attacks with uses of Colour Touch. For example, an 8th-level gammon may make a single attack with a sickle, followed by a colour touch, as part of a full attack action. If they have sources of additional attacks, such as Two-Weapon-Fighting or Haste, they my use those attacks to make Colour Touch attacks. In the case of Two-Weapon Fighting, their off-hand attacks are made with their opposite hand. Coulour Touch is unaffected by the Power Attack feat.

    A gammon can use Colour Touch to heal themselves, as they are healed by colour energy.

    Chromatic (Su): At 2nd level, a gammon can wreak changes upon their body by drawing power from the flow of colour energy in their body. Chromatics are the results of this ability, and take the form of persistent affixes on the gammon's body. Creating a chromatic requires the gammon to temporarily invest a number of dice of their Colour Touch ability, listed in the chromatic. A least chromatic requires 1 die, a lesser chormatic requires 2 dice, a greater chromatic requires 4 dice, and a vivid chromatic requires 7 dice. When dice are invested, they are subtracted from the amount of dice Colour Touch deals in damage. For example, if Colour Touch ordinarily deals 3d6 damage, but 2 dice are invested in chromatics, then Colour Touch only deals 1d6 damage as long as the dice are invested. If all dice are invested, Colour Touch deals 1 damage. A gammon cannot invest more dice than they have available, or more than their Constitution score - 10.

    Dice can be divested by dissolving the chromatic. After doing so, the chromatic no longer exists, but the dice are returned to the gammon's Colour Touch dice pool.

    4 swift actions on consecutive rounds are required to create or dissolve a chromatic. The process cannot be expedited by using standard or move actions; the gammon must wait all three rounds. However, this does not require concentration, and the gammon is free to use their move and/or standard actions during this time. While being dissolved, a chromatic is still usable, but a chromatic in the process of being created is not in usable shape.

    At every level except 1st, 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th, and 19th, a gammon learns and additional chromatic. The chromatic can be selected from any of the degrees of chromatics they have access to. The degrees, in order form lowest to highest, are least, lesser, greater, and vivid. Additionally, at each level, a gammon may exchange a single chromatic known for a different chromatic of equal or lower degree.

    Spoiler: Least Chromatics
    Show
    Alter Energy: Colour Touch deals energy damage--fire, electricity, acid, or cold, chosen when you create the chromatic. Your fingertips change color to match the energy chosen--orange for fire, pale yellow for electricity, green for acid, and blue for cold.

    Altered Attire: Colour energy forms new attire for you. This functions as disguise self, except that the chromatic alters your actual form and appearance, so true seeing does not allow one to see through Altered Attire or negate the Disguise bonus.

    Ambush Cowl: You gain a dark green cowl that hoods your face. When you participate in a surprise round, you are entitled to a full-round action during the round instead of only a standard action.

    Colour Channel Rings: Gaudy, multicolored rings appear on your hands. These allow any weapons you hold to deal extra colour energy damage as if you had hit the target with your Colour Touch in addition to weapon damage.

    Colour Crystal: A shirt of fine, interlocking crystals forms, hovering around you. This functions as a continuous mage armor effect, including the lack of armor check penalty and maximum Dexterity bonus. You can wear items that occupy your body slot while wearing a Colour Crystal.

    Desaturating Claws: You gain two rainbow-hued claws, usable as primary or secondary natural weapons. These claws 1d4 base damage for a Medium creature. These claws cannot channel Colour Touch.

    Float Cincture: Four tiny crystals array themselves in a circle around a rope on your waist. They provide upward pull, which grants you a +6 bonus on Jump checks. You are also under a continuous feather fall effect, except that you fall at 10 feet per round.

    Latch Boots: You gain stony boots that reduce your land speed to 1/4 of what it otherwise would be, but make you immune to bull rushes and trip attempts, provided you are on the ground. Unless you choose to move, your boots keep you rooted to the ground uncompromisingly--for example, you could stand in the middle of a tornado while wearing Latch Boots, though it would not necessarily be pleasant. The boots are incredibly heavy, though you are able to move with some difficulty--they impose a maximum Dexterity bonus of +2 to AC, as if you were wearing certain types of armor. While wearing Latch Boots, you must always keep one foot on the ground. Thus, you cannot run or leave the ground.

    Steel Blue: Your skin turns steel blue. You gain a +2 enhancement bonus to natural armor and add your colour level to your maximum hit points (do not include your colour hit points in your maximum)

    Sufficience: Strips of green wrap around your chest. You do not need to breathe or sleep while this chromatic exists, but your needs resume as soon as it is dissolved.


    Spoiler: Lesser Chromatics
    Show
    Coloured Quintessence: You gain a belt of multicolored quintessence. In addition to being able to store very small items in its belt pouches which behave as if submerged in quintessence, you can store a singe move action in the belt. Storing this sliver of time requires a standard action. You can then regain the stored move action as a swift action at any time, which expends it from the belt. The move action appears as a scintillating ball of multicolored light while stored.

    Colourized Weapon: A scintillating gauntlet appears around one of your hands. Any weapon held in that hand bypasses Damage Reduction and interacts with incorporeal creatures as if it were magical. You can also attack with the gauntlet itself, which has a magical enhancement bonus to hit and damage equal to one-fourth your colour level.

    Dark Eyes: Your eyes are covered in what appears to be a jet-black film, and you constantly weep tears of blackness. Your eyes radiate deeper darkness out to 10 feet per colour level, and darkness out to twice that. You can change the deeper darkness radius as a move action to a maximum of the aforementioned distance and to a minimum of 5 feet. The normal darkness radius changes accordingly. You can can see through the darkness created from this ability perfectly. Finally, your black tears grant you a competence bonus to intimidate equal to your colour level.

    Emphemeral Hands: Your hands and forearms turn bright green and slightly translucent. You can handle incorporeal objects and creatures with your hands, allowing you to make grapple checks against incorporeal creatures at a -4 penalty and to make ghost touch unarmed strikes with your hands. Your hands can still manipulate corporeal objects, but they can pass through such objects if you wish. This allows you to perform such actions as reaching through a door and pulling the handle on the other side.

    Rage Halo: A wide, horizontal golden ring forms around your head at about nose-level. When you form the halo, you enter a Rage, as a 1st-level Barbarian, with a duration equal to 3 + new Constitution modifier rounds. When your rage ends, the ring disperses into sparkles that continue to orbit, and you are fatigued until you dissolve the halo.

    Spectrum Line: You create a rainbow-hued pole, 1 inch in diameter. The pole can resize to any length from 6 inches to 100 feet long at your command. The pole is not a weapon, but you can maneuver it as if it weighed nothing, even when it is very long. A Spectrum Line has Hardness 18 and the DC to break it is 38. It is almost as tough as adamantine in terms of supporting weight and material properties. For example, a properly-braced Spectrum Line can span a chasm and allow a Medium creature to shimmy along it with no worries for how much weight it can support.

    Swivel Pauldrons: Golden pauldrons adorn your shoulders, and a thin gold ring surrounds the base of your neck. While you have this chromatic created, you can rotate your head almost a full turn in both directions. You cannot be flanked.

    Teleportation Pyramids: You create two pyramids in your hands. Both are usable as a wondrous item that lets you (and equipment up to your maximum load) teleport to the other Teleportation Pyramid in the pair. You end up 5' away from the destination pyramid when you teleport. When you teleport, the pyramid only comes with you if you hold it; you can leave a pyramid behind by setting it on the ground and activating it from there.


    Spoiler: Greater Chromatics
    Show
    Colour Blast: A rainbow orb hovers in front of your throat. While the chromatic exists, as stnadard action, you can blast colour energy in a cone of any length between 10' and 120' (your choice), which does colour damage to all targets within the cone as if you had hit them with your Colour Touch. A sucessful Reflex save, DC 16 + Constitution modifier, halves the damage.

    Extradimensional Crown: A rotating, elaborate, hoop-like crown hovers above your head. The opening from the top is actually the opening of an extradimensional space, which can hold up to 20 lb. or 1 cubic foot of material per colour level. Material inside the space doesn't fall out or otherwise leave unless someone reaches inside to remove an item. You can retrieve something as a standard action. When the chromatic is dissolved, the material in Extradimensional Crown is inaccessible until you recreate the crown again.

    Focal Wand: A wand-like object appears in your hand. When you hold it, any effect that would target any of your equipment instead targets the wand only. If you are subject to a dispel effect on your person, it instead affects the wand, and an area dispel that includes the wand in its area instead becomes a targeted dispel against the wand. Dispelling the wand works like how dispels affect a soulmeld. If the wand is destroyed, the chromatic still exists, and you can dissolve it.

    Perch Claws: You gain claws on your feet. They cannot be used to attack, but as an action requiring 1 round, you can "invert" yourself into whatever surface your perch claws are touching. This works like meld into stone, but with any solid material. You cannot move from your inverted position, and the tips of your claws are visible on the surface of the material. You can invert again back onto the surface at any time, which also requires 1 round.

    Soul Backup: You create a fine box that functions as a lich's phylactery, except that it allows you, specifically, to rejuvenate. Up to eight other creatures can also touch the box to allow themselves to rejuvenate, as well. The box does not perform its function unless it is on the colour energy plane. You rejuvenate near the box before all of your allies, which emerge all at once, one day later than you. Note that your equipment does not rejuvenate along with you.

    Throughsense: Your senses pass through an object up to Medium size within close range that you designate as a standard action. You are then able to see through it, it doesn't hinder sound with respect to your perception, and if you touch the object, you can feel whatever is also touching it. For the purposes of your other senses dependent on line of sight or effect, the object does not break those lines.


    Spoiler: Vivid Chromatics
    Show
    Aspect Improvement: Three concentric blue circles are engraved into the backs of your hands, which glow faintly, just enough to be seen in darkness. You gain a +4 competence bonus to one of your ability scores of your choice as long as this chromatic exists.

    Hues of Self: You create a multicolored fog around you, and your position becomes indistinct. This grants you concealment, and if an attack roll misses due to the resultant miss chance, you may immediately "teleport" up to 5'--you were there all along. Abilities contingent on teleportation do not interact with this ability, such as Anticipate Teleport and Shadow Pounce.

    Planar Presence: As astral projection, but is also useable on the Colour Energy Plane. If you wish, you can send your bodies from the Material Plane to the Colour Energy Plane at the time of casting, as plane shift. Your bodies return to their original locations when this effect ends. A complex rune is etched on your forehead (main and projected bodies alike) when you use this ability.

    Prismatic Pendant: A rainbow pendant forms around your neck. You become immune to any prismatic effect, gain resist 20 to fire, cold, and electricity, and +8 to saves vs. poison, petrification, insanity, and effects that would send to you another plane.

    Veil of Discoloration: This chromatic changes your hair color to be white or black, depending on whether you choose positive or negative energy at the time of creation, respectively. So long as you have this chromatic created, you are healed by the energy type you choose instead of damaged by it, and the damage is not halved by Lucid Colour. This does not affect how you receive the other type of damage. You also become immune to the planar effects of the plane corresponding to the energy type you choose: Positive plane for positive energy, Negative plane for negative energy.


    Gammons benefit in a specific way from prestige classes that have the "+1 level of existing meldshaping class" benefit. A gammon taking levels in such a prestige class does not gain any of his class abilities, but he does gain additional chromatics and increased damage with his Colour Touch. Levels of prestige classes that provide +1 level of meldshaping effectively stack with the gammon’s level to determine his Colour Touch damage and chromatics.

    A gammon cannot qualify for prestige classes with specific soulmeld requirements, as he never actually learns to shape soulmelds; chromatics and soulmelds are merely similar enough for this sort of qualification. However, if the gammon can have a number of chromatics active at one time equal to or greater than the required number of soulmelds to enter a prestige class, then they fulfill that requirement. A gammon with access to lesser chromatics is treated as capable of binding one soulmeld to a chakra for the purposes of qualifying for a prestige class, but not if a specific chakra is called out. Greater chromatic access counts as being able to bind two soulmelds, and vivid chromatic access counts as being acle to bind three soulmelds. Finally, a chromatic's full Colour Touch dice are summed with the gammon's essentia pool to determine their essentia pool for the purposes of qualifying for incarnum prestige classes.

    Reach Colouration (Su): At 4th level, a gammon can use their Colour Touch as a ray with a range of 60'. The ray version of Colour Touch otherwise functions the same as the melee version; the gammon can still mix and match attacks, varying between regular attacks, melee Colour Touches, and ray Colour Touches.

    Colour Item (Su): At 8th level, a gammon can modify an item that uses positive or negative energy. Through a ritutal that requires 1 hour and costs an amount of gold equal to 1/5 of the item's price, a gammon can alter the item so that its effects produce colour energy instead of positive or negative energy. The item's effects are unchanged except for thsi energy difference. For example, a wand of cure light wounds would function as a wand of tint light wounds after being coloured. A coloured item's market value is unchanged. A coloured item's apparance changes so that it is vividly shaded with all sorts of hues, and is recognizeable as coloured with a Spellcraft check of DC 15 if the character making the check knows about the Colour Energy palne.

    Energy Awareness (Su): At 10th level, a gammon is continuously aware of all sources of postive, negative, and colour energy within 100'. A source of energy is defined as an object that can inflict one of the three energy types. The gammon can identify which energy type(s) the object(s) can produce. Sources of energy also include certain types of creatures:
    • A creature qualifies as a positive energy source if they are living and have Fast Healing or Regeneration, or if they are capable of producing effects that channel positive energy.
    • A creature qualifies as a negative energy source if they are undead and have Fast Healing or Regeneration, or if they are capable of producing effects that channel negative energy.
    • A creature qualifies as a colour energy source if they are forlorn and have Fast Healing or Regeneration, or if they are capable of producing effects that channel colour energy.

    The Darkstalker feat allows a creature that qualifies as an energy source to hide from a gammon that could otherwise use this ability to detect them.

    Faster Chromatics (Su): At 13th level, a gammon can create or dissolve a chromatic over the course of 3 swift actions instead of 4. At 16th level, this decreases again, to 2 swift actions.

    Lucid Colour (Su): At 15th level, a gammon is so suffused with colour energy that they gain Fast Healing equal to 4 times the number of dice they have available in their Colour Touch ability, to a minimum of 1. They also take half damage from negative and positive energy.

    Colour Aura (Su): At 18th level, a gammon's body radiates colour. The gammon is continuously surrounded by an aura of colour energy. This energy deals colour energy damage equal to the gammon's uninvested Colour Touch dice at all adjacent creatures every round at the start of the gammon's turn. This ability can be suppressed or resumed as a free action.

    Bubble of Colour (Su): At 19th level, a gammon is continuously surrounded by a bubble of the Colour Energy plane, as the planar bubble spell centered on the gammon. The gammon can suppress or resume this ability as a free action.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XIX - Inner Might

    Planar Mage

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    Do you like my blast of fire? I can do this all day.

    There are many forms of magic and many ways to use them. Wizards learn arcane magic through intense study, but sorcerers only need to channel the power of their mighty ancestor (usually a dragon, but sometimes an outsider or an elemental). Divine magic is the custody of worshippers. Planar magic, for its part, is a wholly different set of skills : Planar Mages meditate for years to "synchronize" themselves with the constant flow of energy originating from the inner planes. As such, their magic functions differently.

    Adventures: Planar Mages adventure for the same reasons as more traditional spellcasters : they want to practice their magic, and won't say no if they can become rich along the way.

    Characteristics: Planar Mages can cast formulas, which are the equivalent of spells. They don't need to prepare their spells or use spell slots. Instead, they need planar points, which are spent when casting a formula and are slowly recovered over time. When they fight, they must spare their planar points to make sure they don't run out before the end of the encounter. Once it is done, they have plenty of time to recover their planar points before facing the next opponent.

    Alignment: Planar Mages can be of any alignment, but they tend to be neutral aligned, because the planes have no particular affinity to alignments and a character must have at least some notions of balance to master their energy.

    Religion: Some Planar Mages believe that the inner planes are sentient gods, granting their gift to those that please them. Others think that the harmony and self-discipline required to master planecasting is a religion in itself. Others yet worship elemental gods and various other entities of the inner planes.

    Background: Planecasting results from intense efforts to harmonize the applicant with the planes. In the Planar Mage's case, its the inner planes. Potential Planar Mages almost always study in one of many monasteries on the inner planes, but there are some of these locations in other planes, including the prime material. These monasteries are often directed by genies or elemental creatures. Finally, some Planar Mages learn their powers directly from a teacher of the class, but they are rare.

    Races: Planar Mages are most common amongst races of the inner planes, such as genies. Those born in the material plane are usually genasi. Very rarely will a character become a Planar Mage if he does not have a least a remote connection to one of the inner planes. Amongst humanoids native to the material plane, humans are the most likely to have such connection.

    Other Classes: Planar Mages tend to dislike more traditional spellcasters, which they see as too limited. After all, a wizard can only cast a couple of spells per day, but a Planar Mage can cast formulas all day as long as he gets enough time to accumulate the planar points he needs. However, they respect divine spellcasters for their dedication to an higher power. Monks receive the same treatment, especially since many adherent Planar Mages trained in monasteries. Finally, Planar Mages usually have a low opinion of fighting classes, which they see as meat shields, as well as of roguelike classes, because they see magic as intrinsically better than lockpicking and stealing skills.

    Role: Planar Mages are the equivalent of arcane spellcasters. At lower level, they can use their formulas to attack at range, hide their allies or protect them from the effects of certain planes. As they improve in level, their slowly learn formulas that can damage multiple opponents at once, improve their fighting abilities or give them utilitarian tools to use between encounters.

    Adaptation: As GM's discretion, a Planer Mage may be an elemental-bending character with no particular connection to the inner planes. The planecasting subsystem may also be refluffed into something else, such as emotion-based magic, but this would require greater adjustment and the creation of many new formulas. Finally, a different plane-based class may use the general chassis of the Planar Mage, but use planar points from the outer planes and thus have a wholly different set of formulas.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Planar Mages have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: A Planar Mage needs a high enough Charisma score to learn high level formulas and improve the save DC of them. Like any character, he benefits from having a high Constitution score and gets more hit points as a result. Dexterity will improve his Armor Class and thus make him avoid some hits. Finally, a decent Strength score may allow him to fight in melee should he lack the planar points he needs to cast formulas.
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: Complex.
    Starting Gold: 5d4 x 10 gp (125 gp).

    Class Skills
    The Planar Mage's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (the planes) (Int), Profession (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), Survival (Wis) and Use Magic Device (Cha)

    Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 4 + Int modifier

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Planar Mage.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Planar Mages are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor of any type interferes with a Planar Mage's gestures, which can cause his formulas with somatic components to fail.

    Planecasting (Sp): Planar Mages rely on a form of magic known as planecasting. A Planar Mage casts spell-like abilities known as formulas, which are drawn from the Planar Mage formula list. He can cast any formula he knowns without preparing it ahead of time, but doing so requires the spending of planar points (see below).

    To learn or cast a formula, a Planar Mage must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the effective spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Planar Mage's formula is 10 + the effective spell level + the Planar Mage's Charisma modifier.

    A Planar Mage's selection of formulas is extremely limited. He begins play knowing one 1st-level formula of his choice. At each new Planar Mage level, he gains one or more new formulas, as indicated on Table: Planar Mage. These new formulas can be common ones chosen from the Planar Mage formula list, or they can be unusual formulas that the Planar Mage has gained some understanding of by study. The Planar Mage can’t use this method of formula acquisition to learn formulas at a faster rate, however.

    A Planar Mage can cast any formula he knows at any time, assuming he has enough planar points remaining to cast it. There are many types of planar points associated with different planes, but the Planar Mage only needs air points (shortened A), earth points (E), fire points (F), water points (W), positive energy points (P) and negative energy points (N). Other planecasting classes may use different types of points. Spent planar points recover naturally at the rate of 1 per minute (taken individually for each type of points), though there are ways to quicken the process. The Planar Mage can only have a given amount of points at any time, as indicated on Table: Planar Points.

    Instant Recovery (Su): At first level, a Planar Mage may use a full-round action to instantly recover 1 planar point or any one type. He can do so at will, but never more than once per round.

    At seventh level, a Planar Mage can do so as a standard action.

    At thirteenth level, a Planar Mage only needs a move action, though the limit of one time per round still apply.

    At twentieth level, a Planar Mage can use this ability as a swift action.

    Bonus Feat: At 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th level, a Planar Mage gains a bonus feat. At each such opportunity, he can choose a feat from the following list: Augment Summoning, Beckon the Frozen (Frost), Boost Spell-like Ability (BoVD), Combat Casting, Elemental Spellcasting (PlH), Empower Spell-like Ability, Energy Gestalt (CM), Greater Spell Focus, Greater Spell Penetration, Heighten Spell-like Ability (CAr), Improved Counterspell, Maximize Spell-like Ability (CAr), Quicken Spell-like Ability, Skill Focus (Knowledge (the planes)), Spell Focus or Spell Penetration. The Planar Mage must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including caster level minimums (which he can fulfill with the spell-like abilities he gains as a planecaster).

    These bonus feats are in addition to the feat that a character of any class gets from advancing levels. The Planar is not limited to the feats above when choosing these feats.

    Note that, even though many of the feats above mention spells in their description, their benefits also apply to spell-like abilities (which does include formulas).

    Formulas

    Planecasting is a particular kind of magic. It uses formulas, which are spell-like abilities with an accompanying cost in planar points. Formulas are cast with an effective spellcaster level equal to the planecaster level of the relevant class, taken individually for each class. The description of each formula is described in a standard format. This format follow the same pattern as the format of a spell, with the differences described in the spoiler below.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Level and School [Descriptor]

    Beneath the formula's name is a line giving the level, school, and descriptor (if any) of the formula. A planecaster cannot learn a formula if it's level is higher than his maximum level of formulas known (taken individually for each class). Planecasting relies on the same schools of magic as spellcasting, but most formulas are from the Conjuration, Evocation or Transmutation schools. Formulas are treated as being spell-like abilities from the relevant school and with the relevant descriptors.

    Minimum Cost

    The next line of a formula's description gives the minimum cost (in terms of planar points) required to cast the formula. Because different planecasting classes use different types of planar points, refer to the description of the class on planar points cost.

    If the formula fails, the cost is wasted.

    Components

    Given that formulas are spell-like abilities, they have no component. Therefore, this line is absent.

    Casting Time

    This is the time it takes to cast the formula. If this line is missing, then the formula has a casting time of 1 standard action.

    Augmentation

    Some formulas may be further enhanced by spending more planar point than their minimum cost. These formulas are identified with the mention Augmentation: Yes. In this case, see the formula's description for the details. Formulas with the mention Augmentation: No cannot be augmented.

    If an augmented formula fails, the augmentation cost is wasted.

    Notes

    Many formulas have the same effect as the spell (or spells) stated in their description. In this case, use the formula's description (with the accompanying level, school, minimum cost, casting time, range, target, etc.) instead of the spell's, but use the spell's for the effect's purpose. If a formula duplicates a spell, it does not count as that spell for the purpose of counterspelling, unless otherwise stated (formulas can however be counterspelled by the same formula).

    Planar Mage Formulas (Part 1):
    Spoiler
    Show


    Arc of Lightning
    4th-level Conjuration (Creation) formula [Air, Electricity]
    Minimum Cost: 4 A, 2 P
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Area: A line between two creatures
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    You conjure the energy from the Quasielemental Plane of Lightning to create conductivity between two creatures, and a bolt of electricity arcs between them.

    This bolt deals 6d6 points of electricity damage to both creatures and to anything in the line between them.

    Both creatures must be in range, and you must be able to target them (as if this spell had them as its targets).

    Draw the line from any corner in one creature's space to any corner in the other's space.

    While this formula is in many ways similar to the spell of the same name (described in Complete Arcane), they don't counter one another.

    Augmentation: For each 1 W and 1 P spent after the minimum cost, the damage of this formula increases by 2d6 and its effective level increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Channel the Dragon
    7th-level Transmutation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Casting time: 1 round
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute
    Augmentation: No

    You feel the mighty force of elemental wyrms flood your spirit and reinforce your body. Your flesh hardens, and your eyes gleam.

    Few creatures represent both the mystic and the elemental more than dragons. You tap into the elemental might of these magnificent creatures to gain a breath weapon and a defensive ability based on the element selected. Refer to the table below for the breath weapon and defensive ability granted by this formula, as well as for its cost and descriptor.
    {table=head]Element (Dragon)|Breath Weapon|Defensive Ability|Cost|Descriptor
    Air (Green)|7d6 acid (Reflex half)|Resistance to acid 30|7 A|Air

    Earth (Copper)|Slow, 1d6 rounds (Will negates)|Damage reduction 5/adamantine|7 E|Earth

    Fire (Gold/Red)|7d6 fire (Reflex half)|Resistance to fire 30|7 F|Fire

    Water (Silver/White)|7d6 cold (Reflex half)|Resistance to cold 30|7 W|Water[/table]

    The breath weapon takes the form of a 15-foot cone-shaped burst. Using the breath weapon requires a standard action, and each time you breathe, you must wait 1d4 rounds before breathing again. Spell resistance does not apply against the breath weapon's effect.

    This formula counters and dispel the spell of the same name (described in Dragon Magic).

    Control Water
    4th-level Transmutation formula [Water]
    Minimum Cost: 4 W
    Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area: Water in a volume of 10 ft./level by 10 ft./level by 2 ft./level (S)
    Duration: 5 minutes (D); see text
    Saving Throw: None; see text for the Control Water spell
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula functions like the spell of the same name, but it has another application; when the Raise Water version is cast on water elementals and other water-based creatures, this formula acts as an Haste spell (Will negates (harmless)) for 5 rounds. The formula has no effect on other creatures.

    This formula counters and dispel the eponymous spell and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: For each water point spent after the minimum cost, the duration of the formula increases by 5 minutes (or 5 rounds for the Haste effect) and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it (to a maximum of 9th level).

    Control Weather
    7th-level Transmutation formula [Air]
    Minimum Cost: 7 A
    Casting Time: 10 minutes; see text for the Control Weather spell (normal) or 1 standard action (augmented)
    Range: 2 miles (normal) or Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level) (augmented)
    Area/Effect: 2-mile-radius circle, centered on you; see text for the Control Weather spell (normal) or Cyclone 10 ft. wide at base, 30 ft. wide at top, and 30 ft. tall (augmented)
    Duration: 4d12 hours; see text for the Control Weather spell (normal) or 1 round/2 levels (maximum 1 minute) (D) (augmented)
    Saving Throw: None (normal) or reflex negates; see text for the Whirlwind spell (augmented)
    Spell Resistance: No (normal) or Yes (augmented)
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula functions like the spell of the same name.

    It also counters and dispel the spell it duplicates and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 1 A, this formula functions like the Whirlwind spell instead and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Cure Disease
    3rd-level Conjuration (Healing) formula [Water]
    Minimum Cost: 3 W, 1 N, 1 P
    Range: Touch
    Target: Creature touched
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless)
    Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)
    Augmentation: Yes

    You conjure the combined essence of the Quasielemental Plane of Salt and of the Quasielemental Plane of Steam to boost the immune system of the target. The target may make an immediate Fortitude save with a +2 bonus against all diseases, parasites and similar he is currently suffering from (use the original disease's DC). He is cured of any disease for which he succeeds on his save. Certain special diseases may not be countered by this formula or may be countered only by a caster of a certain level or higher (treat this formula as a Remove Disease spell for this purpose).

    Once the subject has been affected by this formula, he cannot benefit from it again for the next 24 hours, even if the attempt to cure him failed or if he contracts a new disease during this time period.

    Note: Since the formula's duration is instantaneous, it does not prevent reinfection after a new exposure to the same disease at a later date.

    Detachment of the Primitive World
    7th-level Transmutation formula [Earth]
    Minimum Cost: 7 E, 5 N
    Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
    Effect: Ray
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude Partial (object)
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You channel the combined energy from the Elemental Plane of Earth and the Negative Energy Plane in order to turn your target to dust. You must make a successful ranged touch attack to hit. Any creature struck by the ray takes 1d6 points of damage per caster level (to a maximum of 20d6). Any creature reduced to 0 or fewer hit points by this formula is entirely disintegrated, leaving behind only a trace of fine dust. A disintegrated creature’s equipment is unaffected.

    When used against an object, the ray simply disintegrates as much as one 10-foot cube of nonliving matter. Thus, the spell disintegrates only part of any very large object or structure targeted. The ray affects even objects constructed entirely of force, such as a Wall of Force, but not magical effects such as a Globe of invulnerability or an Antimagic Field.

    A creature or object that makes a successful Fortitude save is partially affected, taking only 5d6 points of damage. If this damage reduces the creature or object to 0 or fewer hit points, it is entirely disintegrated.

    Only the first creature or object struck can be affected; that is, the ray affects only one target per casting.

    This formula counts as a Disintegrate spell for the purpose of destroying any spell or effect specifically affected by a Disintegrate spell. However, the spell and formula don't counter one another.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 2 E and 2 N, this formula instead affects everyone in a 10-foot cube (you don't need an attack roll to hit) and deals double damage (or 5d6 damage on a successful save). In addition, its effective level increases by 2 for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Dispel Element
    5th-level Abjuration formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: Touch
    Target or Targets: You and a touched evil creature from another plane; or you and an enchantment or evil spell on a touched creature or object (See text for Dispel Evil)
    Duration: 1 minute or until discharged
    Saving Throw: See text for Dispel Evil
    Spell Resistance: See text for Dispel Evil
    Augmentation: No

    This formula functions like the Dispel Evil spell, except that there are many applications to it, depending of which spells and creatures you wish to be protected against. You are surrounded by energy, the color of which depends of the application use. Each application has a different cost and descriptor.

    {table=head]Subtype of the Opponent/Descriptor of the Spell*|Color of the Protective Energy|Cost|Descriptor
    Air|Brown|5 E|Earth

    Cold|Blue-white|5 F|Fire

    Earth|Green|5 A|Air

    Fire|Red|5 W|Cold, Water

    Water|Dark blue|5 F|Fire[/table]

    * Choose whichever you wish to be protected against.

    The Cold and Fire applications of this formula counter and dispel the Dispel Cold spell (Frostburn), and vice-versa.

    Earth Reaver
    5th-level Transmutation formula [Earth, Fire]
    Minimum Cost: 5 E, 5 F
    Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
    Area: 20-ft.-radius spread
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex Partial
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You channel magical energy from the Paraelemental Plane of Magma to make the earth erupt in a shower of rock, dirt, and fire.

    Creatures and objects within the area take 4d6 points of bludgeoning damage from the impact of the rock shards, as well as 3d6 points of fire damage; no saving throw applies to the damage. Creatures in the area must also succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be knocked prone.

    While this formula is in many ways similar to the spell of the same name (described in Complete Mage), they don't counter one another.

    Augmentation: For each 1 E and 1 F spent after the minimum cost, the formula deals an additional 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage and 1d6 points of fire damage to every creature in the area, and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it (to a maximum of 9th level).

    Earth's Vigor
    4th-level Transmutation formula [Earth]
    Minimum Cost: 4 E
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute or until discharged (normal) or 1 minute (D) (augmented)
    Augmentation: Yes

    You conjure the energy from the Elemental Plane of Earth and redirect it into your own metabolism, bestowing you with their impressive vigor. You gain damage reduction 10/adamantine (You ignore the first 10 points of damage each time you take damage from a weapon, though an adamantine weapon bypasses the reduction) Once the spell has prevented a total of 100 points of damage, it is discharged.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 4 E, this formula instead functions like the Iron Body spell, and its effective level increases by 4 for the purpose of effects that rely on it.

    Elemental Mist
    1st-level Conjuration (Creation) formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: 20 ft.
    Effect: Cloud spreads in 20-ft. radius from you, 20 ft. high
    Duration: 1 minute
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula has two different applications; it can either create a dust cloud or a fog cloud. Both applications of this formula functions like the Obscuring Mist spell, but have a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor.

    {table=head]Type of cloud|Cost|Descriptor
    Dust cloud|1 A, 1 E|Air, Earth

    Fog cloud|1 F, 1 W|Fire, Water[/table]

    Unlike the spell it duplicates, this formula can be used just as well in and out of water.

    This formula counters and dispel the spell it duplicates, and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: By spending one additional planar point of each required type, the formula instead has a medium range (100 ft. + 10 ft. Level) and the effect originates from any place within the formula's range (not necessarily from you). In addition, its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it. By spending two additional planar points of each required type on top of the previous augmentation, the effect duplicates the Solid Fog spell (instead of the Obscuring Mist spell) and the effective level of the formula increases by an additional 2 for the purpose of effects that rely on it. By spending an additional 2 E and 2 W on top of the previous two augmentations, the effect duplicates the Acid Fog spell instead, though the effective level of the formula doesn't increase further.

    Elemental Needles
    2nd-level Evocation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: 2 planar points; see text
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: 10 needles
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half; see text
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You channel energy from the elemental planes in order to create ten needles out of a given element, which are then magically thrown in direction of one or more targets within range. Choose a type of planar points amongst Air, Earth, Fire and Water; you spend 2 planar points of the selected type. Each needle deals 1 point of damage, the type of which depends of the type of planar points used (see the table below).
    {table=head]Planar points used|Damage Type
    Air|Piercing*

    Earth|Acid

    Fire|Fire

    Water|Cold[/table]

    * Piercing damage from this formula is subject to damage reduction, but it counts as magic for the purpose of overcoming it.

    If a target succeeds on his Reflex save, only half of the needles that were targetting him (rounded down) hit him. Even if they hit, the target's damage reduction or resistance (if any) apply individually to each needle.

    You cannot mix more than one type of planar points with this formula.

    This formula has the descriptor relative to the type of planar points used (Air, Earth, Fire or Water).

    Augmentation: For each planar point of the selected type spent after the minimum cost, you create 10 more needles and the effective level of this formula increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Elemental Ray
    1st-level Evocation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: 1 planar point; see text
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: Ray
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    A ray of energy projects from your pointing finger. You must succeed on a ranged touch attack with the ray to deal damage to a target. Choose a type of planar points amongst Air, Earth, Fire and Water; you spend 1 planar point of the selected type. The ray deals 1d6 points of damage, the type of which depends of the type of planar points used (see the table below).
    {table=head]Planar points used|Damage Type
    Air|Bludgeoning*

    Earth|Acid

    Fire|Fire

    Water|Cold[/table]

    * Bludgeoning damage from this formula is subject to damage reduction, but it counts as magic for the purpose of overcoming it. If you want, you may deal nonlethal damage instead, though damage reduction still apply.

    You cannot mix more than one type of planar points with this formula.

    This formula has the descriptor relative to the type of planar points used (Air, Earth, Fire or Water).

    Augmentation: For each planar point of the selected type spent after the first, the damage increases by 2d6 and the effective level of this formula increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its ability to penetrate a Globe of Invulnerability.

    Elemental Weapon
    2nd-level Evocation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: Touch
    Effect: Weaponlike beam
    Duration: 1 minute (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula has four different applications, one for each element. Each application creates a weapon out of a different elemental energy. The base damage of the weapon is dictated by the spell. Each application has its own cost and provides the formula with a different descriptor.
    {table=head]Element|Weapon created|Base damage|Cost|Descriptor
    Air|Shortspear|1d8 +1/2 caster level (maximum +10)|1 A|Air

    Earth|Great club|1d10 +1/2 caster level (maximum +10)|1 E|Earth

    Fire|Scimitar|1d8 +1/2 caster level (maximum +10) fire damage*|1 F|Fire

    Water|Quarterstaff|1d8 +1/2 caster level (maximum +10)|1 W|Water[/table]

    * Since the fire scimitar is immaterial, your Strength modifier does not apply to the damage. A fire scimitar can ignite combustible materials such as parchment, straw, dry sticks, and cloth, but does not function underwater.

    The weapon is 6-foot-long and is formed of the element used. It springs forth from your hands and you can use it with proficiency. Unless the weapon is a fire scimitar, you apply your Strength modifier to the damage roll of the weapon.

    You wield the weapon as if it was a weapon of the type it duplicates. For example, you wield a water weapon as if it was a quarterstaff.

    Attacks with the elemental weapon are regular melee attacks.

    The elemental weapon is subject to damage reduction (unless it is a fire scimitar), but it is considered a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming it.

    Augmentation: For each planar point of the same type spent after the minimum cost, the duration of this formula increases by 1 minute and its effective level increase by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it. The elemental weapon gains an enhancement bonus to attack rolls equal to half the amount of planar points spent on augmentation (rounded down).

    Fire and Brimstone
    5th-level Conjuration (Creation) formula [Fire]
    Minimum Cost: 5 F
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    You use energy from the Elemental Plane of Fire to cause your foes to erupt in afoul, acrid-smelling burst of yellow fire.

    The subject ignites in a burst of sulfuric fire that deals 8d6 points of fire damage and causes the subject to be sickened for 5 rounds.

    A successful Fortitude save halves the damage and negates the sickening.

    This formula counters and dispel the spell of the same name (described in Complete Mage), but the spell may only do the same if the formula is not augmented beyond its minimum cost.

    Augmentation: For each fire point spent on augmentation, this formula deals an additional 2d6 points of fire damage and its effective level increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Fireburst
    8th-level Evocation formula [Fire]
    Minimum Cost: 8 F
    Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area: 80-ft.-radius burst
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex half (normal) or Reflex partial (augmented)
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula causes a globe of searing fire to explode silently from a point you select. All creatures in the globe take 6d6 points of fire damage.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 6 P, this formula acquires the Light descriptor and functions like the Sunburst spell (this replaces the normal effect of the formula), though it still has the Fire descriptor. If augmented in this way, this formula counters and dispel the Sunburst spell.

    Light spells counter and dispel darkness spells of an equal or lower level.

    Fire Shield
    4th-level Evocation formula [Cold or Fire; see text]
    Minimum Cost: 4 F or 4 W; see text
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/2 levels (maximum 1 minute) (D)
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula functions like the spell of the same name, and has therefore two version: the Warm Shield, which has a minimum cost of 4 F and provides the formula with the Fire descriptor, and the Chill Shield, which has a minimum cost of 4 W and provides the formula with the Cold descriptor.

    It also counters and dispel the spell it duplicates, but the spell may only counter or dispel the formula if it is not augmented beyond its minimum cost.

    Augmentation: For each additional planar planar point of the same type spent on augmentation, the damage inflicted by this formula increases by 1d6 and its effective level increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it.

    Flaying Burst
    5th-level Evocation formula [Air, Earth]
    Minimum Cost: 5 A, 5 E
    Casting Time: 1 round
    Range: 60 ft.
    Area: Cone-shaped burst
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: See text for the Flaying Burst spell (Sandstorm)
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula functions like the spell of the same name (described in Sandstorm).

    It also counters and dispel the eponymous spell and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: For each 1 A and 1 E spent on augmentation, this formula deals an additional 1d6 points of damage to the creatures within the area, and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Gust of Wind
    2nd-level Evocation formula [Air]
    Minimum Cost: 2 A
    Range: 60 ft.
    Effect: Line-shaped gust of severe wind emanating out from you to the extreme of the range
    Duration: 1 round
    Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (object)
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    Harnessing the energy from the Elemental Plane of Air, you create a severe blast of air that originates from you. This formula functions like the spell of the same name.

    It also counters and dispel the spell(s) it duplicates and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 1 A, the duration becomes 1 round/level (maximum 2 minutes) and this formula functions like Wind Wall instead. In addition, its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC. By spending an additional 2 A on top of the previous augmentation, the formula's effective level increases by an additional 2 and it simultaneously functions like Gust of Wind and Wind Wall.

    Ice Storm
    4th-level Evocation formula [Air, Cold, Water]
    Minimum Cost: 4 A, 4 W
    Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area: Cylinder (20-ft. radius, 40 ft. high)
    Duration: 1 full round
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You channel magical energy from the Paraelemental Plane of Ice to create great magical hailstones that pounds down for 1 full round, dealing 3d6 points of bludgeoning damage and 2d6 points of cold damage to every creature in the area. A -4 penalty applies to each Listen check made within the formula’s effect, and all land movement within its area is at half speed. At the end of the duration, the hail disappears, leaving no aftereffects (other than the damage dealt).

    While this formula is in many ways similar to the spell of the same name, they don't counter one another.

    Augmentation: For each 1 A and 1 W spent after the minimum cost, the formula deals an additional 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage and 1d6 points of cold damage to every creature in the area, and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it (to a maximum of 9th level).

    Light and Darkness
    3rd-level Evocation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: Touch
    Target: Object touched
    Duration: 1 minute (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula has two different applications : one for light and one for darkness. Each one duplicates the effect of a specific spell on the object touched. They also have a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor.

    {table=head]Application|Duplicated Spell|Cost|Descriptor
    Darkness|Deeper Darkness|1 N|Darkness

    Light|Daylight|1 P|Light[/table]

    Light spells counter and dispel darkness spells of an equal or lower level, and darkness spells counter or dispel light spells of an equal or lower level. This formula also counters the spell it duplicates and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: By spending four additional planar points of the same type as the base cost, this spell deals 1 points of damage per round to every creature in the area. The darkness application inflicts negative energy damage, harmful to living beings but beneficial to undead creatures. The light application inflicts positive energy damage, which heals living creatures and is detrimental to undead. In both cases, the effective level of the formula increases by 4 for the purpose of effects that rely on it.

    Move Earth
    6th-level Transmutation formula [Earth]
    Minimum Cost: 6 E
    Casting Time: See text for the Move Earth spell (normal) or 1 standard action (augmented)
    Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area: Dirt in an area up to 750 ft. square and up to 10 ft. deep (S) (normal) or 80-ft.-radius spread (S) (augmented)
    Duration: Instantaneous (normal) or 1 round (augmented)
    Saving Throw: None (normal) or see text for the Earthquake spell (augmented)
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    Drawing power from the Elemental Plane of Earth, you change the shape of the ground in the affected area. This formula functions like the spell of the same name.

    It also counters and dispel the spell it duplicates and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 2 E, this formula functions like the Earthquake spell instead and its effective level increases by 2 for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Planar Adaptation
    1st-level Transmutation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: 1 planar point; see text
    Range: Touch
    Target: Creature touched
    Duration: 1 minute (D)
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula has six different applications, one for each inner plane. Each application makes it easier for the target to live in a given inner plane and similar planes. They also have a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor.
    {table=head]Inner Plane|Effect|Cost|Descriptor
    Elemental Plane of Air|When in a plane with the subjective directional gravity trait, the target automatically succeeds on his Wisdom check to set a new direction of gravity.|1 A|Air

    Elemental Plane of Earth|If the target is inside a plane with the earth-dominant elemental trait, he gains a burrow speed equal to his base land speed, and he leave an useable tunnel behind him when he burrows. If the target already has a faster burrow speed or is not inside a plane with the earth-dominant elemental trait, this application has no effect.|1 E|Earth

    Elemental Plane of Fire|The target and his equipment don't take fire damage as a result of being in a plane with the fire-dominant elemental trait. He does not gain fire resistance, however.|1 W|Fire

    Elemental Plane of Water|If the target is inside a plane with the water-dominant elemental trait, he can breathe underwater. He can't do so if he is merely underwater, but not in a water-dominant plane. If the target is made of fire, he doesn't take damage as a result of being in a plane with the water-dominant elemental trait.|1 F|Water

    Negative Energy Plane|If the target is living, he doesn't take damage as a result of being in a plane with the minor negative-dominant energy trait, and treats that major negative-dominant energy trait as the minor negative-dominant energy trait instead.|1 P|—

    Positive Energy Plane|The target can never gain more temporary hit points than his normal hit point total as a result of being in a plane with the major positive-dominant energy trait. Also, he is not blinded in such circumstances. If the target is harmed by positive energy, he doesn't take damage as a result of being in a plane with the minor or major positive-dominant energy trait (if the GM houseruled it as such).|1 N|—[/table]

    Most applications of this formula function by creating a shield out of an element or energy to protect against the opposite element. In this case, they are not affected by the impended magic trait of the plane they are intended to be used in, but are nonetheless affected by the impended magic trait of the opposite plane. The applications associated with the Elemental Plane of Air and the Elemental Plane of Earth are exceptions, as the element is channelled in a way that let you control your environment better.

    Augmentation: By spending two additional planar points of the same type, the target of this formula may also ignore the impended magic trait of the inner plane associated with the application used.

    Quasielemental Blood
    3rd-level Transmutation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute (D)
    Augmentation: No

    You mix the planar energy from one elemental plane and one energetic plane of your choosing, and redirect the quasielemental energy into your own blood. This formula has eight different applications, one for each quasielement. Each application duplicates the effect of one or more spells on you. They also have a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor.
    {table=head]Quasielement|Emulated spells|Cost|Descriptor
    Ash|False Life and Resist Energy (fire)|3 F, 1 N|Fire

    Dust|Blur|3 E, 1 N|Earth

    Lightning|Lesser Vigor (CD) and Resist Energy (electricity)|3 A, 1 P|Air, Electricity

    Mineral|Barkskin and Lesser Vigor (CD)|3 E, 1 P|Earth

    Radiance*|Darkvision and Lesser Vigor (CD)|3 F, 1 P|Fire, Light

    Salt|False Life and Resist Energy (acid)|3 W, 1 N|Acid, Water

    Steam|Resist Energy (cold) and Swim (CAr, Sto)|3 W, 1 P|Water

    Vacuum|False Life and Resist Energy (sonic)|3 A, 1 N|Air[/table]

    * Light spells counter and dispel darkness spells of an equal or lower level.

    Quasielemental Flame
    3rd-level Evocation formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Range: Touch
    Target: Object touched
    Effect: See text
    Duration: 2 hours
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula has two different applications, one for each fire-based quasielement. Both applications have a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor.

    {table=head]Quasielement|Effect|Cost|Descriptor
    Ash|The object is covered in invisible fire, dealing an additional 1 point of fire damage on every hit. It is immune to it's own damage.|3 F, 1 N|Fire
    Radiance*|As Continual Flame|3 F, 1 P|Fire, Light[/table]

    Both applications of this formula can counter and dispel Continual Flame, but Continual Flame may only counter or dispel the Radiance application.

    * Light spells counter and dispel darkness spells of an equal or lower level.

    Augmentation: For each fire point spent after the minimum cost, the duration of the formula increases by 1 hour and its effective level increases by 1 for the purpose of effects that rely on it (to a maximum of 9th level).

    Ray of Enervation
    4th-level Necromancy formula [Death]
    Minimum Cost: 2 N
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Effect: Ray of negative energy
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None (normal) or Fortitude partial (augmented)
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You point your finger and utter the incantation, releasing a black ray of crackling negative energy that suppresses the life force of any living creature it strikes. You must succeed on a ranged touch attack to hit the target. If the attack succeeds, the subject gains 1d4 negative levels.

    If the subject has at least as many negative levels as HD, it dies. Each negative level gives a creature a -1 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, ability checks, and effective level (for determining the power, duration, DC, and other details of spells or special abilities).

    Additionally, a spellcaster loses one spell or spell slot from his or her highest available level. Negative levels stack.

    Assuming the subject survives, it regains lost levels after 10 minutes. Usually, negative levels have a chance of permanently draining the victim’s levels, but the negative levels from enervation don’t last long enough to do so.

    An undead creature struck by the ray gains 1d4×5 temporary hit points for 1 minute.

    Augmentation: By spending an additional 3 N, the target must also make a Fortitude save or die instantly. The subject may die from negative levels even if it succeeds on its saving throw.

    Sandstorm
    6th-level Conjuration (Creation) formula [Air, Earth]
    Minimum Cost: 6 A, 6 E
    Range: 40 ft./level
    Area: 40 ft./level radius cylinder 40 ft. high
    Duration: 6 minutes
    Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    You channel the combined energy of the Elemental Plane of Air and Elemental Plane of Earth in order to create a duststorm of sandstorm. This formula functions like the spell of the same name (described in Sandstorm).

    It also counters and dispel the eponymous spell and vice-versa.

    Augmentation: For each additional 1 A and 1 E spent on augmentation, the duration of this formula increases by 1 minute, and its effective level of increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Sound Burst
    2nd-level Evocation formula [Air, Sonic]
    Minimum Cost: 2 A
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Area: 10-ft.-radius spread
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You tap the power of the Elemental Plane of Air in order to blast an area with a tremendous cacophony. Every creature in the area takes sonic damage and must succeed on a Fortitude save to avoid being stunned for a certain number of rounds. The amount of damage inflicted and the duration of the stunning depends of the amount of air points spent on the formula (maximum 10 points). Spending a certain amount of points also increase the effective level of the formula for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as the save DC.
    {table=head]Air Points Spent|Damage Inflicted|Duration of the Stunning|Effective Level of the Formula
    2|1d8|1 round|2nd
    3|2d6|1d2 rounds|3rd
    4|3d8|1d2 rounds|3rd
    5|4d8|1d3 rounds|4th
    6|5d8|1d3+1 rounds|5th
    7|6d8|1d4+1 rounds|6th
    8|7d8|1d6+1 rounds|7th
    9|8d8|1d8+2 rounds|8th
    10|10d8|1d10+2 rounds|9th[/table]

    This formula counters and dispel the spell of the same name, but the spell may only do the same if the formula is not augmented beyond its minimum cost.

    Augmentation: See the table above.

    Storm of Fire and Ice
    6th-level Evocation formula [Air, Cold, Fire, Water]
    Minimum Cost: 6 A, 6 F, 6 W
    Range: Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
    Area: Cylinder (20-ft. radius, 40 ft. high)
    Duration: 1 round
    Saving Throw: Reflex half
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: Yes

    You combine the power of three of the four elemental planes to bring forth a swirling vortex of smoking lava intermixed with chunks of steaming ice.

    A shower of lava globs and hailstones rains down for 1 round, dealing 6d6 points of cold damage and 6d6 points of fire damage to everything in the area.

    The cylinder provides concealment similar to the Fog Cloud spell and also applies a -4 penalty on Listen checks made within the area.

    Movement costs within the area of the spell are doubled.

    At the end of the duration, the lava and ice disappear, leaving no lingering effects (other than the damage dealt).

    While this formula is in many ways similar to the spell of the same name (described in Complete Mage), they don't counter one another.

    Augmentation: For each 1 A, 1 F and 1 W spent after the minimum cost, this formula deals an additional 1d6 points of cold damage and 1d6 points of fire damage to everything in the area, and its effective level increases by 1 (to a maximum of 9th level) for the purpose of effects that rely on it, such as its save DC.

    Storm of Vengeance
    9th-level Conjuration (Summoning) formula [Air, Water]

    Saving Throw: See text for the Storm of Vengeance spell
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    Augmentation: No

    You channel the combined energy from the Elemental Plane of Air and Elemental Plane of Water in order to conjure an enormous black storm cloud. This formula functions like the spell of the same name.

    It also counters and dispel the eponymous spell and vice-versa.

    Summon Elemental I
    2nd-level Conjuration (Summoning) formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Casting Time: 1 round

    Effect: One summoned creature
    Duration: 1 round/level (maximum 1 minute) (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Augmentation: Yes

    This formula summons a creature from one of the elemental planes. It appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the creature, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions.
    A summoned monster cannot summon or otherwise conjure another creature, nor can it use any teleportation or planar travel abilities. Creatures cannot be summoned into an environment that cannot support them.

    The formula conjures a creature from the following table. Each creature has a different cost and provide the formula with a different descriptor. All the creatures on the table are neutral unless otherwise noted.
    {table=head]Creature Summoned|Cost|Descriptor
    Air Elemental, Small|2 A|Air

    Earth Elemental, Small|2 E|Earth

    Smoke Paraelemental, Small (MoP)|2 A, 2 F|Air, Fire

    Water Elemental, Small|2 W|Water[/table]

    Augmentation: By spending 1 additional planar point of each type required to summon a specific kind of creature, you can summon 1d3 creatures of that kind instead of only one. By spending 2 additional planar points of each type required to summon a specific kind of creature, you can summon 1d4+1 creatures of that kind instead of only one. In addition, the effective level of the formula increases by 1 or 2, respectively, for the purpose of effects that rely on it. These two augmentations cannot be combined.

    Summon Elemental II
    3rd-level Conjuration (Summoning) formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Casting Time: 1 round

    This formula functions like Summon Elemental I (described above), but it summons a creature from the list below (it can't be used to summon a creature from the Summon Elemental I's list).

    4th-level Conjuration (Summoning) formula [See text]
    Minimum Cost: See text
    Casting Time: 1 round

    This formula functions like Summon Elemental I, but it summons a creature from the list below (it can't be used to summon a creature from the Summon Elemental I's list). In addition, summoning some creatures may let you recover planar points of a specific type, as indicated on the table. This recovery happens immediately after the formula is successfully cast.
