    Default Truespeech [Truenamer fix, PEACH]

    This project is mirrored at dnd-wiki.

    Speaking the Words:
    When the gods created the multiverse, they did so by speaking in a long lost tongue. By finding and learning scraps of this language, you can greatly control the multiverse. However, to use a word, you must truly understand it and then say it with absolute clarity. The knowledge behind this is represented by the skill of Truespeech.

    To speak a phrase, you must first choose what phrase you wish to speak. You can choose any phrase in your Lexicon. To speak a phrase, you must be able to speak. All phrases are spoken as a standard action.

    Once you have chosen what phrase you want to speak, you need to make a Truespeech check. The DC of this check is 10 + double the level of the phrase. If you fail this check, the phrase fails to take effect.

    If you succeed on the check, the phrase takes effect and you suffer Drain. Every phrase has two drain numbers listed in the form -X/-Y. X is known as Long-Term Drain, while -Y is known as Short-Term Drain. Both of these numbers are imposed as a penalty on all Truespeech checks to speak phrases, but the two penalties go away at different rates. Both types of Drain stack.

    Short-Term Drain goes away very quickly. To remove Short-Term Drain, you merely need focus for 1 minute. Doing so removes all Short-Term Drain.

    Long-Term Drain sticks around much longer. In fact, to get rid of any of it, you must sleep or rest for 8 hours. Doing so removes all Long-Term Drain and Short-Term Drain.

    Phrases are supernatural effects; however, they can be dispelled as if they were spell-like abilities. In addition, phrases create magical echoes that can be detected with Detect Magic as if they were spells; however, phrases do not have a school.

    Each Phrase has two labels; its Chain Name and its Word. The Chain Name tells you the name of the chain the phrase is part of and how far into the chain the phrase is. The Word of a Phrase is the new truespeech word you learn when you learn the Phrase.

    To add a phrase into your Lexicon, you must fulfill two requirements. The first requirement is a level requirement; your Truespeaker level must be at least double the level of the phrase minus one. The other is a chain requirement; to learn a phrase, you need to know all phrases before it in its chain (i.e. to learn Air II, you need to know Air I; to learn Fire III, you need to know Fire I and Fire II).

    If a phrase has a duration longer than Instantaneous, the truespeaker that spoke the phrase can end the phrase early as a move action (no truespeech check is required to do this).

    If a phrase allows a saving throw, the DC is 10 + the phrase's level + the speakers Int modifier.

    Note on Languages:
    Most truespeakers will keep Speak Language at maximum ranks; combine that with All-Speaker and they learn 3 languages every 2 levels. The GM will need to ensure they don't run out of languages to learn; the constant increase in languages known is a critical part of the balance of this system. Without more languages, their Truespeech bonus falls behind what it needs to be.

    Truespeech (Int):
    This skill allows a creature to speak truespeech phrases and to identify such phrases and their effects.

    Check: Truespeech is the skill used to speak truespeech phrases; the rules for this use can be found above. However, it can also be used to identify truespeech phrases and effects and to speak whispers.

    In addition to your ranks in the skill and Intelligence modifier, you get an untyped bonus on Truespeech checks equal to the number of languages you know.

    Whispers: While most of the power of Truespeech is found within the powerful phrases, there exist weaker effects known as Whispers. Truespeakers have an innate mastery of these simple words, but others can learn them by taking feats.

    To speak a whisper, you must learn that whisper, either via the Whisperer class feature or Truewhisper. The Truespeech DC to speak a whisper is 10; Drain does apply to whispers (whispers have a drain of -1/-0). Attempting to speak a whisper is a full round action; and any target must be within 20 feet.

    • Color: Target object changes color for 2 minutes; you choose the new color.
    • Ember: Target takes 1 fire damage; very flammable objects light on fire.
    • Float: You have telekinesis (range of 20 feet, can move up to 5 lbs.) for 2 minutes.
    • Frost: Target takes 1 cold damage; easily frozen objects freeze.
    • Glow: Your eyes beam forth a 20-foot cone of light for 2 minutes.
    • Harm: Your target takes 1d2 damage.
    • Make: You create a small, crude object for 2 minutes.
    • Mend: Your target is healed 1d2 hit points.
    • Moment: You learn the time of day to the minute.
    • Name: You learn your targets name; disguises/aliases trick this whisper.
    • North: You learn which direction is north.
    • Skill: You get a +1 to your next skill check within 2 minutes.
    • Soul: You learn your targets alignment.

    Identifying Truespeech: If you hear a truespeech phrase or whisper be spoken or see its ongoing effects, you can make a Truespeech check to identify the effect. The DC to do this is equal to 11 plus the level of the phrase (whispers are treated as level 0 phrases for this purpose).

    Speaking Truespeech: Truespeech is a very complex language. However, it is a proper language; those who have studied it can speak and understand it.
    • If you have 3 or more ranks in Truespeech, you can understand simple sentences spoken in Truespeech.
    • If you have 6 or more ranks in Truespeech, you can understand complex sentences spoken in Truespeech and speak simple sentences.
    • If you have 9 or more ranks in Truespeech, you can speak complex sentences in Truespeech.

    Literate characters can read and write Truespeech as well. They can read anything they understand and write anything they can speak.

    Action: Varies. Speaking a phrase is a standard action. Identifying a phrase is a free action. Speaking a whisper is a full-round action.

    Try Again: Varies. You can retry speaking a phrase or whisper at will, bearing in mind the actions required. If you fail the identify a phrase or whisper, you can not try to identify that phrase or whisper again for 1 minute.

    Special: You cannot take 10 with this skill.

    Truespeakers have an innate knowledge of whispers. They learn every whisper as a part of their training and study.

    Items:
    Amulet of Words:
    The amulet of words is a simple magic item that acts as a major boon to truespeakers. When worn, the amulet grants you an competence bonus to truespeech checks. The amount of this bonus can be any multiple of 5, ranging from +5 to +20.
    Crafting Requirements: Craft Wondrous Item OR Craft Truespeech Item, creator must have ranks in Truespeech at least equal to the bonus.
    Cost: 2,500 gp (+5), 10,000 gp (+10), 22,500 gp (+15), 40,000 gp (+20).

    Phrase Tablet:
    Phrase tablets are stone tablets with a single phrase of truespeech etched into them and reinforced with magical force. Phrase tablets can be read to create the effect of the phrase tied to them or studied to learn the phrase.
    To read a phrase from a tablet requires you to have the tablet in hand. Other than this requirement, speaking a phrase from a tablet works exactly like speaking a phrase normally. Reading a phrase from a tablet does not require you to know the phrase, qualify to learn the phrase, or even have the truespeech class feature at all.

    To learn a phrase from a tablet requires you to spend one hour studying the tablet. At the end of that hour, you must spend 20 xp per level of the phrase. When you do, the phrase is added to your Lexicon. Doing this requires the Truespeech class feature, and you must qualify to learn the phrase.

    After you read the phrase successfully or study and learn the phrase, the magic in the tablet is expended and the stone tablet breaks. Failed attempts to read the phrase do not use up the tablet.

    If the phrase etched into a tablet has an XP cost, the etcher does not need to pay this cost. If you use a tablet to read a phrase with an XP cost, you must pay that cost.
    Crafting Requirements: Craft Truespeech Item, creator must must know the phrase being etched.
    Cost: 100 gp times the level of the phrase squared.

    Tome of Infinite Lore:
    This tome contains a summary overview of almost everything there is to know in the universe. Written in truespeech, a creature must have at least 1 rank in Truespeech to use the tome. By referring to the text within the tome, the holder of the tome gets a +4 circumstance bonus to all Knowledge checks and to all Truespeech checks. This bonus does not stack with the bonus provided by masterwork tools.
    Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item OR Craft Truespeech Item, Comprehend Languages OR Future I- Future, creator must have 14 or more ranks in Truespeech.
    Cost: 3,600 gp.

    Post Re: Truespeech [Truenamer fix]

    Feats:
    Expanded Lexicon:
    Your truespeech lexicon expands.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature.
    Benefit: Add any two phrases of your choice that you qualify for to your lexicon.
    Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you add two new phrases to your lexicon.

    Truewhisper:
    You understand the basics of Truespeech. This skill allows you access to whispers.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech 1 rank.
    Benefit: Choose a number of Truespeech Whispers equal to the number of Truespeech ranks you have. Whispers. You learn those Whispers. Furthermore, Truespeech is always a class skill for you; this applies retroactively.
    Special: If you gain additional Truespeech ranks, you learn an equal number of additional Whispers until you have learned all of them.

    Craft Truespeech Item [Item Creation]:
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature.
    Benefit: You can create any truespeech item whose prerequisites you meet. Enchanting a truespeech item takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its price. To enchant a wondrous item, you must spend 1/25 of the item’s price in XP and use up raw materials costing half of this price.

    You can also mend a broken truespeech item if it is one that you could make. Doing so costs half the XP, half the raw materials, and half the time it would take to craft that item in the first place.

    Metaphrase Feats:
    As a truespeaker’s knowledge of the language of creation grows, they can learn to speak phrases in a slightly different way. Speaking a phrase in such a way is harder than normal but, thanks to metaphrase feats, at least it is possible. Phrases modified by a metaphrase feat have a higher DC to speak and cause more short-term drain.

    This does not change the actual level of the phrase, so the DC for saving throws against it does not go up. You choose to apply a metaphrase feat when speaking the phrase you wish to modify. Doing so does not take any longer than speaking the phrase normally.

    Quicken Phrase [Metaphrase]:
    By adding the word "Swift" to the start of your phrase, you are somehow able to speak it faster.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature, Truespeech 13 ranks.
    Benefit: Speaking a quickened phrase is a swift action. A quickened phrase has the Truespeech DC to speak the phrase increased by +10 and causes 10 more points of Short-Term Drain.

    Enlarge Phrase [Metaphrase]:
    By adding the word "Distant" to the start of your phrase, you expand the range of the effect.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature, Truespeech 7 ranks.
    Benefit: Enlarged phrases have any mention of "50 feet" in their target replaced with "100 feet". An enlarged phrase has the Truespeech DC to speak the phrase increased by +4 and causes 4 more points of Short-Term Drain.

    Extend Phrase [Metaphrase]:
    By adding the word "Lasting" to the start of your phrase, you extend the duration of the effect.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature, Truespeech 7 ranks.
    Benefit: Extended phrases last twice as long. A extended phrase has the Truespeech DC to speak the phrase increased by +4 and causes 4 more points of Short-Term Drain.

    Secure Phrase [Metaphrase]
    By adding the word "Stable" to the start of your phrase, you can enunciate it more clearly.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature, Truespeech 5 ranks.
    Benefit: Secured phrases are easier to say reliably; you can take 10 when speaking a secured phrase. A secured phrase has the Truespeech DC to speak the phrase increased by +2 and causes 2 more points of Short-Term Drain.

    Living Whisper:
    A living whisper is a snippet of truespeech given life and intellect. Living whispers are tied to the truespeaker that created them (hereafter referred to as their creator). To create a living whisper, a truespeaker must take the feat Whisperbound.

    Whisperbound:
    You discover the secret to bringing life to sound.
    Prerequisites: Truespeech class feature, ability to speak 2nd level phrases
    Benefit: You can create a living whisper. Creating a living whisper takes 1 minute, but costs nothing. You may only create one living whisper.

    Living whispers are incorporeal, have hit points equal to their creator, and are size Fine. Their AC is 18, and they can fly with perfect maneuverability and a speed of 30 feet. Living whispers act on their creators initiative count. If a living whisper is destroyed, or it somehow moves out of its creator's line of effect, it reappears in its creator's space in 1d6 rounds. If a living whisper must make a saving throw, it uses its creator's save modifier. It lacks skill ranks, feats, Hit Dice, and ability score modifiers, except where otherwise noted.

    Living whispers have no sense of sight; instead, they must rely on their sense of hearing to navigate. They have ranks in Listen equal to their creators hit dice plus 3 and blindsight with a range of 50 feet. They also have ranks in Truespeech equal to their creators hit dice plus 3.

    Living whispers can not be seen via most methods of sight. Their creator can see them as a disturbance in the air; creatures using true seeing can also see the living whisper. Living whispers can speak any language known by their creator. In addition, the living whisper knows and can use all Truespeech Whispers.

    Epic Phrases:
    Epic phrases are very powerful phrases. However, they act like normal phrases for most cases. The only differences are that epic phrases can only be learned by taking Epic Truespeech (no other method works) and items like phrase tablets can not be made for epic phrases. For calculating Save DC's and Truespeech DC's, epic phrases are 10th level phrases.

    Epic Truespeech [Epic]:
    Your studies into truespeech finally unlock the most powerful of phrases.
    Prerequisites: Ability to speak 9th-level phrases
    Benefit: Add any epic phrase of your choice to your lexicon.
    Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects stack.

    Spoiler: Epic
    Show
    Create IV- Universe
    Words: Create-Life-Plane-Universe
    Level: Epic
    Target: Any location on the ethereal plane within 50 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Drain: -5/-10
    Effect: You create a massive demiplane. This demiplane is 200,000 feet in radius. You determine the environment within the demiplane when you first speak this phrase, reflecting most any desire you can visualize. You determine factors such as atmosphere, water, light, temperature, and the general shape of the terrain. You can establish patterns such as days, nights and even seasons. This phrase can also create simple life such as animals and vegetation. It can also create construction such as buildings, roads, wells, dungeons, and so forth. This phrase can not create any material more valuable than silver (5 gold per pound). All planar traits of the plane match those of your home plane.
    XP Cost: 10,000 XP

    Destroy I- Destroy
    Words: Destroy
    Level: Epic
    Target: Any location within 50 feet
    Duration: 24 hours
    Drain: -5/-10
    Effect: This phrase creates a massive thunderstorm that covers everywhere within 1 mile of the targeted location and rains fire down on that area. All creatures and objects within 1 mile of the targeted location take 1 damage of fire damage each round. Unless the ground is exceedingly damp, all vegetation is eventually blackened and destroyed, leaving behind a barren wasteland similar to the aftermath of a grass or forest fire.

    Sands I- Sands
    Words: Sands
    Level: Epic
    Target: You and up to 5 willing creatures within 50 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Drain: -5/-10
    Effect: All targets teleport through time. You choose the amount of time and the direction, but the amount of time must be a multiple of 100 years. Anything that is done to change the future will only change the future in the smallest way possible.

    Sun II-Moon
    Words: Sun-Moon
    Level: Epic
    Target: None
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Drain: -5/-10
    Effect: You advance the time of day for the entire plane you are on. Time jumps up to 24 hours forwards to your chosen time of day. This is an actual change of time; duration's advance and the sun and moon rise and set as appropriate. From the perspective of other planes, the plane you are on vanishes from existence until it arrives at the new time.
    XP Cost: 600 XP

    Teach I- Teach
    Words: Teach
    Level: Epic
    Target: Any creature within 50 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Drain: -5/-10
    Effect: You impart some of your knowledge onto your target. Choose any Intelligence-based skill in which you have at least 10 ranks. Your target is imbued with some of your knowledge of that skill; they are forevermore treated as having 1 more rank in that skill then they actually do (up to their maximum ranks). A given creature can only benefit from this phrase once per skill. Alternatively, you can choose a truespeech whisper; your target is imbued with the ability to speak that whisper.

    Alright, time to bring this thing up. I've added in several more feats, more phrases (bringing the total to 45), new class features and a new use for the Truespeech skill.

    "Raise"

    There we go. I've added in several more phrases, bringing the total to 54. I also think I added in the phrase tablet since the last bump, but I'm not sure.

    Alright, here's the situation.

    I have defined how phrases interact with normal effects. They do not provoke AoO's, they can be detected and dispelled, and they are subject to Anti-magic fields.

    I want to make more truespeech items, but I can't come up with any ideas. All ideas will be considered.

    Perhaps an item that is a throat slot. Imagine an choker collar that grants the use of several abilities.

    Call it "Throat of the Truenamer".

    At Will, mutter the true word for violence, fires a 30 ft. ray effect, dealing 5d6 sonic damage +1 per Truenamer's level. Spell Resistance Applies.
    3/Day, mutter the true word for protection. Interposing Hand effect.
    1/Week, instantly know the true name of one creature who fails a will save (DC 15 + Truenamer's Int Modifier).

    Caster level 9th.

    ...there are 2 problems with this item:

    1: With this system, creatures don't have true names, so the third ability is meaningless.
    2: The 1 equipable item I've made made up so (the amulet of words) far takes the throat slot.

    That said, the phrases for an item like this... Sound I- Sound would definitely be on the list, but what for the defensive effect? I don't have any good defensive phrases.

    I have glanced over this, and I like what I see. I have no experience with a lot of D&D, so I can't really critique, but keep up the good work. As for defenses words, how about a Ward progression(Ward I, Ward II, Ward III). Another fun idea could be Wyrd (Fate) allowing for rerolls.

    I actually wasn't planning on adding more phrases. I think I have enough.

    That said, if I were to add more phrases, I would want to add 1 phrase to each of levels 1-8. Currently there are 10 level 1 phrases, 9 level 2 phrases, 8 level 3 phrases and so on to 3 level 8 phrases; however, there are 3 level 9 phrases. Adding one phrase to each of levels 1-8 would make it 11 first, 10 second and so on; that would make a perfect staircase.

    So, what would Ward do? One idea is:

    Ward I- Ward: Shield, as the spell. (level 1)
    Ward II- Mark: Explosive Runes, as the spell. (level 3)

    Also, ideas for Fate:

    Fate I- Fate: Target creature can reroll any d20 roll they make or an attack roll someone makes to attack them; this reroll must be used within 1 minute/level. (level 2)
    Fate II- Destiny: As Fate I- Fate but the target gets rerolls equal to caster level/3. (level 5)

    So, that leaves room for phrases of the following levels: 4, 6, 7, 8.

    Raise. Alright, I have expanded the phrase list to 63 phrases and 12 whispers, for a total of 75 effects.

    I am currently planning the following:
    • An epic progression
    • Epic phrases
    • More truespeech items
    • Maybe some monsters
    • Maybe some PrCs
    • More metaphrase feats

    I now have some epic phrases up, along with rules for learning and using them. Next on the to-do list: an epic progression for the Truespeaker.

    Epic raise.

    I have written up the epic progression of the truespeaker. I also wrote up an idea I've been sitting on for a while; the living whisper, intended to fill the same role as the familiar or psicrystal. It is very much a rough idea, but it's there.
