    Default The Paragon of Duality (Base Class contest XXV winner, PEACH)

    The Paragon of Duality
    You never really learn how to use something until you learn to combine it with something else.

    A paragon of duality learns everything there is to know about single school of magic, but this includes its interaction with other schools. A conjurer of duality, then, learns spells from the mighty school of diabolism by learning about the interaction of conjuration and necromancy, and also learns the power of convocation through its interaction with evocation. A necromancer of duality will still learn of diabolism as will an evoker of duality learn of convocation. Through this, a paragon of duality learns to attune one central theme to many purposes.

    Adventures: A paragon of duality has a slightly less unhealthy obsession with a single school than some specialists, willing to try other schools to see how they interact. They are always learning, however, and an adventure gives them more than their fair share of targets, willing or otherwise.

    Characteristics: A paragon of duality has one specialism, but their spells without exception mix in the powers of another school, allowing them to remain relevant where their speciality is less directly useful.

    Alignment: All paragons of duality work with necromancy, but few concentrate on it enough to affect their alignments. In general, a paragon of duality can be any alignment.

    Religion: Paragons of duality often worship deities of magic or experimentation.

    Background: Paragons of duality often learn alongside wizards, and are trained as specialists but can't help but experiment with the schools they might have neglected. Alternatively, they might find magical power like a sorcerer, but find that it always comes back to a single school, even when they work with others.

    Races: Any race can produce paragons of duality, but human flexibility and dwarven inventiveness are the kind of traits that might encourage them. Of course, the high intelligence and dexterity of grey elves serves paragons of duality just as well it does wizards.

    Other Classes: Wizards like the experimentation inherent in paragons of duality, and many wish they could learn their spells. Sorcerers, of course, can learn spells that they understand through study, so they are often eager to learn the unique perspective of the paragon of duality. In general, other classes treat them much the same as they might treat wizards of the same specialism.

    Role: A paragon of duality has a fair selection of spells, all of which are directed to a similar cause but each of which has its own diversion from that goal, allowing them to specialise without cutting out other options that might have been available to them.

    Adaptation: A paragon of duality could be a member of some kind of secret order; for example, necromancers who disguise their spells as one of the other schools of magic. Perhaps necromancy is banned, and there is no good test for necromancy, only a test for each other school. Universal spells are banned partly as they are indistinguishable from necromancy and partly because many of them can emulate or assist with necromancy spells anyway. Paragons of necromancy therefore pass their diabolism spells off as conjurations and their maledictions as enchantments, as there's no way to tell that they are also necromancy. Conversely, in the land where there is one true school of magic, a paragon of that school may be a creature keen to explore other schools but afraid to eschew the sanctioned one - they may even be permitted to explore that school's interactions with other schools. Alternatively, it could be that the spells' schools have no special significance, and scholars are still working to find what connection, if any, they have to the standard schools.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the paragon of duality.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    Paragons of duality are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor of any type interferes with their gestures, which can cause their spells with somatic components to fail.

    Spells
    Paragons of duality choose a single spell list from the abjurer of duality spell list, the conjurer of duality spell list, the diviner of duality spell list, and so on for each other school of magic (Universal is not counted as a school of magic). For ease, these are written as a single paragon of duality spell list, as all of the spells thereon appear on two different sub-lists. To find out which sub-lists a spell appears on, you can check by the spell school to which it belongs, as follows.

    Paragon of duality spells do not belong to any of the normal schools of magic. Instead, they belong to a single combination school. This lends them some advantages compared to normal spells, and also some weaknesses. A spell of the convocation school (conjuration+evocation) will be used as an example of where the school does and does not count as each of its component schools, and will be compared to the spell fire bolt which is a conjuration and an evocation, vision of the omniscient eye which is a divination and an evocation, and teleport which is a conjuration, but the rules are the same for the other dual-schools:

    • The spell registers as conjuration and evocation under the effects of detect magic. It does not register specifically as being a convocation spell, and so would not be distinguishable from fire bolt save by effects which can tell the specific spell being used.
    • The spell can be used with the improved counterspell feat to counter either fire bolt or teleport if it is high enough level to do so, but it cannot be used to counter vision of the omniscient eye, nor can teleport or vision of the omniscient eye be used to counter it, but fire bolt can. In general, the spell must be all of the schools of the spell to be countered in this way, so a convocation can counter spells which are no schools except for conjuration and/or evocation (and which aren't universal spells, which can only be countered by other universal spells in this way), and a spell must be at least conjuration and evocation (but could be anything up to all eight schools) to counter it.
    • A spell or ability which protects against either conjuration spells or evocation spells, or which calls out specifically conjuration spells or evocation spells, even if it doesn't refer to both, will affect the spell. A spell which affects both will only ever affect a single spell once unless it specifies a greater effect for spells which belong to both schools, but an effect that improves conjurations and an unrelated effect which boosts evocations would affect the spell twice. Spell focus is an example of an effect that would not stack, but if one somehow gained greater spell focus in conjuration while having spell focus in evocation (and not in conjuration), the two would stack for a convocation. Similarly, a diabolism (conjuration and necromancy) would be affected by corpsecrafter (which alters necromancy spells) and spell focus in conjuration.


    To find out which list a spell belongs to, you can look at its combination school and find out which two schools that combination is made up of. That spell belongs to the spell lists of both those schools. For example, every convocation spell ever to come to be belongs to both the conjurer of duality and evoker of duality spell lists. However, the spells fire bolt and firestride exhalation do not, because even though they are conjuration and evocation spells, they are not convocation spells.

    A paragon of duality knows every spell on the chosen spell list, and casts spells as a sorcerer does, except that intelligence is used in place of charisma and that the spells cast are both arcane and divine - they are subject to arcane spell failure as they are arcane spells, but otherwise they are treated as both.

    The combination schools are as follows:

    Abj Con Div Enc Evo Ilu Nec Tra
    Abj Adjuration Precognition Inhibition Protection Intervention Sacrament Warding
    Con Adjuration Exhortation Petition Convocation Replication Diabolism Morphism
    Div Precognition Exhortation Cogitation Exhibition Oneirism Seance Retribution
    Enc Inhibition Petition Cogitation Coercion Deception Malediction Animation
    Evo Protection Convocation Exhibition Coercion Illumination Effigy Destruction
    Ilu Intervention Replication Oneirism Deception Illumination Apparition Silhouette
    Nec Sacrament Diabolism Seance Malediction Effigy Apparition Animism
    Tra Warding Morphism Retribution Animation Destruction Silhouette Animism

    Adjuration holds people to a limited set of actions, allowing you to force them to perform specific actions or prevent them from attacking you.
    Animation brings nonsentient objects into motion, or compels your enemies to act through physical force rather than subtle mental influence.
    Animism is the control of, or assault on, the souls of living beings, or beings which were once living and retain, or are, the souls of the creature they once were.
    Apparitions are much like phantasms, but rather than having a single effect and then going away, they stick around as though they had been summoned or raised.
    Coercion spells are a direct assault on a creature's mind. If enchantment is picking the lock on someone's mind, coercion is bashing down the door.
    Cogitation allows for super-fast rationalisation, thought, and understanding. Enchanters or conjurers of duality can look at a language they have never seen and learn the meaning in moments, or decipher a hidden message just by looking at it.
    Convocation creates lasting forms of energy, allowing a pillar of fire to rise while its creator becomes living lightning.
    Deception tricks people. Their beliefs are changed, and what they see changes to match; they see an illusion and their worldview reforms to suit it.
    Destruction is its own explanation, causing life to become death and structure to become ruin. Proud stone towers collapse into rubble and creatures go up in flames.
    Diabolism is the use of demons for one's bidding. It has a subschool, possession, but also allows calling of demons to serve the user. Possession effects are ones which force a demon into a creature's body, allowing some degree of control of that body (whether by the caster or otherwise).
    Effigy spells are ones which affect one creature through another creature or object: the archetype of effigy is the standard voodoo doll, and this school of magic allows the pins in the doll to come to life in the victim.
    Exhibition allows you to reveal the results of your divinations to other creatures, or project a message outwards. Alternatively, you can use your divinations as the targetting equipment for a powerful attack.
    Exhortation is an appeal made to a creature to aid you, or a forceful attempt to bring a creature or object, willing or otherwise, to you.
    Illumination is the control of light, allowing you to make devastating attacks which blind your foes, or plunge entire continents into darkness.
    Inhibition dissuades people mentally from their goal, suggests to them another course of action, or leads them astray by suggesting the impossible. If all else fails, it crushes their spirit until they choose to stop.
    Intervention convolutes things, it targets some creature and places impedements to their goal, or chooses some other creature and foils plans to harm them. To use intervention is to confound someone, somewhere, in some action.
    Malediction is a fancy way of referring to curses: these are abilities which plague a creature in some way and are generally difficult to remove.
    Morphism refers to the changing of one's form, or in this case merging one's form into that of a summoned creature, potentially allowing you to remain unharmed no matter how much damage the morph sustains.
    Oneirism is the manipulation of dreams, allowing you to transmit messages between sleeping creatures or even bring a creature's nightmare to life.
    Petition is a wide call for creatures to answer to you, to come to your aid, or to rally to your cause; using the power of petition allows you to send a rallying cry to those who would never normally even hear you out without leaving your seat.
    Precognition allows you to protect yourself or other creatures with foreknowledge of events that are to come. Further, while neither divination nor abjuration have strong aggressive potential, the combination can be devastating, flooding a creature's mind with warnings against their untimely (and inevitable) demise.
    Protection is the creation of physical impediments to harm: walls and shields of energy that block the attacks of those who wish to harm the allies of the caster.
    Replication allows you to copy creatures, spells or abilities, enabling you to use abilities that are beyond your grasp, but within another creature's.
    Retribution is an odd sort of divination, which only seeks to influence what happens after the event: by retaliating in full force. The weak points left by an opponent's attack are automatically exploited.
    Sacrament guards one's soul, and wards against those with ill intent. It is used by necromancers to ensure that their undead are protected from the machinations of clerics, and by abjurers to ensure that they can protect all creatures, alive or dead.
    Seance is the act of speaking to the spirits of the dead. They have the power to serve you or impart wisdom to you, allowing valuable information to be obtained or armies to be defeated.
    Silhouette is the physical manipulation of shadows, allowing a creature to be strangled by the darkness or even forced to fight their own shadow in battle.
    Warding is the ability to create safeguards which impede magical and physical assault on a creature, usually by changing the attack in a way that makes it less harmful.

    Duality Companion (Ex)

    A paragon of duality has access to a companion exactly like a druid's animal companion, except that it is chosen from the paragon of duality companion list. As the companion's hit dice advance, it gains an additional hit die of each type that it is whenever it would normally gain two hit dice. For example, a fey dragon companion belonging to a 3rd-level paragon of duality gains a fey hit die and a dragon hit die over and above those hit dice given in its base statistics.

    Bonus Feats
    Paragons of duality gain bonus feats at levels 2, 6, 10, 14, and 18. These bonus feats can be chosen from among item creation feats and metamagic feats, in both cases for which the paragon of duality meets the prerequisites, or for feats with "Two-weapon" in the name.

    Widened Horizens (Ex)
    At every second level after first, the paragon of duality learns an extra spell from a part of the Paragon of Duality spell list which would not normally be known, of the level indicated on Table: The Paragon of Duality. For example, an Abjurer of Duality could at fifth level take the spell Merge with Creature I.

    Twin Talons (Ex)
    From fourth level, whenever the paragon of duality wields two weapons, treat the paragon of duality class as having the medium base attack bonus progression to determine attack bonus and the maximum number of attacks that can be made.

    Meta-Duality (Ex)
    From eighth level, whenever the paragon of duality uses a spell with two metamagic feats, so long as each metamagic feat adjusts the spell slot by at least one level, the total adjustment is reduced by 1. This ability does not stack with any ability that reduces or replaces metamagic spell slot adjustments.

    School Replacement (Ex)
    From twelfth level, the paragon of duality can treat any effect that would affect schools of any specific school as affecting schools of any other school instead or as well. For example, spell focus now affects all spells, and corpsecrafter now affects undead created by any school of magic and not just necromancy (which is useful with the fell animate metamagic, for example).

    Double Attempt (Ex)
    From sixteenth level, the paragon of duality makes all d20 rolls twice and takes the better result.

    Embodiment of Duality (Na)
    From twentieth level, the paragon of duality takes on a second creature type, gaining all of that type's listed immunities. If the paragon of duality is any type other than undead or deathless and is also a construct, add the living construct subtype. You cannot take on:

    - The animal type if you have an intelligence greater than 2 or are a dragon or a magical beast or a vermin.
    - The construct type if you are an elemental.
    - The deathless type if you are undead or are evil or have the evil subtype.
    - The dragon type if you are an animal or a magical beast or a vermin.
    - The elemental type if you are a construct.
    - The fey type if you are a giant or if your size is larger than medium.
    - The giant type if you are a fey, a humanoid or a monstrous humanoid or if your size is smaller than large.
    - The humanoid type if you are a giant or a monstrous humanoid.
    - The magical beast type if you are an animal or a dragon or a vermin.
    - The monstrous humanoid type if you are a giant or a humanoid.
    - The ooze type if you have an intelligence score.
    - The undead type if you are deathless or are good or have the good subtype.
    - The vermin type if you are an animal or a dragon or a magical beast or if you have an intelligence score.

    Spell Descriptions (Adjur-Coerc)

    Adjur

    0lvl

    Moment of Peace
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 immediate action
    Range: Unlimited.
    Target: Creatures in combat with you.
    Duration: 1 round
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Each creature takes a moment to talk.

    All creatures in the combat, friend or foe, stop what they're doing for a moment, getting a moment to speak. Out of all creatures in combat, you choose the order for them to speak, and each one in turn spends their round of six seconds doing nothing but talking. You cannot change the order once creatures have begun speaking. You are yourself included in the order of speaking. Once each creature has had a chance to speak, the spell ends and initiative order resumes as normal.

    Trip Trap
    Adjuration (Creation)
    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Touch
    Effect: 10 foot tripwire
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: Reflex negates and reflex partial.
    Spell Resistance: No.
    You create a tripwire that may knock a creature over.

    You create a 10 foot tripwire between two points that you can reach (you are permitted to move during the casting just enough to touch them, and will probably have to if your reach is less than 5 feet). The search and disable device DC to find and disable the trap are equal to the reflex save DC, but dealing any damage with any attack breaks the tripwire.

    A creature who crosses the tripwire gets a reflex save to negate the effect in its entirety, otherwise they drop each item they are holding. A creature who fails the first save must take a second; failing both saves knocks the creature prone. In any case, the tripwire breaks when crossed. A creature who deliberately avoids stepping through the tripwire can bypass it without setting it off without any check or save of any kind.

    1st

    Flock Together
    Adjuration [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 1
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Two objects or creatures touched and also touching each other.
    Duration: 1 hour per level
    Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (object) (potentially harmless) (see text)
    Spell Resistance: Yes (object)
    Two objects become stuck together tightly.

    Two touched objects, or one touched object and one touched creature, or two touched creature, must save or be stuck together (a creature may potentially save twice if they would be stuck to an object they are attending). Creatures may take another save each round to unstick themselves from an object or creature but objects, even attended ones, cannot save again if they fail the first save.

    A creature stuck to the floor cannot move from the square they are in and is flat-footed.

    2nd

    Trianna's Chainstrike
    Adjuration (Creation) [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 2
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 60 feet
    Area: 60-foot cone originating from you.
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Reflex Partial (see text)
    Spell Resistance: None
    Whirling chains of force entangle enemies

    Creatures in the area are entangled by the force of the chains, which bind them and hinder their movement. Creatures who fail their reflex saves are held immobile by the chains. Either way, creatures get a new save each round to end the effect.

    3rd

    Hold Oath
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Touch
    Target: Willing creature touched
    Duration: 1 year + 1 month/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    A creature states an intended course of action, and cannot deviate from it.

    Hold oath allows a creature to make a statement which that creature must then follow. It can only be used on a willing target, not a sleeping one, and the spell fails if the target is charmed or compelled into saying anything specific. The creature makes its intent clear using natural language or sign language, and the spirit of the wording rather than its literal meaning is observed by the spell.

    The creature is physically incapable of deviating from the statement if it is possible not to, and must attempt to remedy the situation if they are in breach of it. For example, a creature who promises to stay within 100 feet of a specific person at all times may be unable to keep up if that person acquires a horse or casts a flying spell, but the oath-holder must still attempt to enter the space within 100 feet of them, even if this involves going back to get something that will speed them up to catch up.

    Nothing short of a wish or miracle can end this commitment when made.

    4th

    Reinstate Magic
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard actions
    Range: 120 feet
    Effect: Dispelled spell effect that fits within area
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You restore a spell that has been dispelled

    Choose a fourth- or lower-level spell that has been countered and cast a spell that's a copy of that spell except as noted above, or choose a fourth- or lower-level spell that has been dispelled and reinstate it from that point in its duration. Either way, the spell must have been active within the last minute.

    5th

    Force into Ruin
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 round
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    You force a creature to be reckless in combat.

    The targeted creature cannot use any abilities which protect it against anything (except by killing or disabling the aggressor) and attacks each turn if able.

    6th

    Timeshackle
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/2 levels)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You slow a creature without affecting it directly, preventing it from resisting.

    The creature you target acts as though staggered and takes a -2 penalty to AC, reflex saves and attack rolls, and its speed is halved.

    7th

    Bind into Service
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: 1 creature.
    Duration: Permanent
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    As you cast this spell, a creature is forced to obey you - physically.

    The target creature forevermore obeys your orders, with limitations. You can only give it orders of the type which have an obvious metric other than time by which they can be considered complete, and you cannot give multifaceted orders, or lists of orders. Each time you give an order, that creature obeys you until that order's resolution, but is also free to act within the bounds of that order, meaning that they can choose how to approach a particular task and needn't display any regard for your safety. The creature isn't under any compulsion not to harm you, however, and can act as it will once its task is completed (until you give it a new one).

    Remove curse, limited wish, wish or miracle can remove this effect.

    8th

    Crushing Prison
    Adjuration [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Fortitude Partial
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    A crushing prison is a great cage of force that pushes in on a creature.

    The target creature takes a fortitude save. If that creature fails, it is held immobile by the prison. Either way, it takes 1d6 points of damage per round as the prison pushes in on it.

    9th

    Commandeer
    Adjuration
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 immediate action
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level) (see text)
    Effect: Spell is redirected as you choose
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You take control of a spell as it is being cast.

    You immediately alter a spell being cast by a creature in range, so that its parameters are chosen by you exactly as they would be by the caster. For example, a creature casting bestow curse may be trying to inflict a -6 penalty to one creature's strength, when you redirect the spell to another creature and make it give the target a -6 penalty to the target's constitution, or back on the caster and make them lose half their actions. All parameters must be legal for the creature to have cast the spell, meaning that the entire effect of the spell must be in range of the original caster (but not necessariliy within medium range of you).

    Anima

    0lvl

    Control Self
    Animation
    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 immediate action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round
    You rely on your magic to stop you doing something stupid.

    You gain a +2 bonus to all saves and checks related to physical self-control, such as constitution checks to keep running, skill checks requiring bodily control such as sleight of hand or balance, most reflex saves, and so forth, but never attack or damage rolls or your armour class. Control Self is useless to prevent mental effects such as suggestion spells.

    Telekinetic Fist
    Animation [Force]
    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: None
    Casting Time: 1 standard action or one full-round action, see text.
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/2 levels)
    Target: One or more creatures in range, see text.
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You lash out and hit a creature outside of your reach.

    You choose a single creature and lash out your fist at them, and they take damage as though struck by your unarmed strike if you succeed on a ranged touch attack roll. If you cast this spell as a full-round action, you can attack as though making a full attack action with these ranged touch attack unarmed strikes.

    1st

    Animate Weapon
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 1
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Weapon touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You allow a weapon you possess to attack on its own.

    You cause the touched weapon to fly about and attack on its own. It moves at a speed of 20 feet, flying with perfect maneuverability, and can attack as though it had a strength of 10 and a dexterity of 10. It can be attacked like a creature of its own size (not necessarily the size of its intended wielder) rather than a creature having to sunder it. If the weapon is a projectile weapon, your ammunition container for that weapon can be animated too. If the weapon can be thrown, it still can't throw itself and must make melee attacks (shuriken are ammunition and can't be animated with this spell).

    Kinetic Trap
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 2
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Touch; see text
    Target: 1 object/level touched; see text
    Duration: 1 day/level or until discharged
    Saving Throw: None.
    Spell Resistance: No
    You animate some objects on a trigger, so they come to life for a brief moment when a creature reaches a designated spot.

    You choose a set of objects, which can be no larger than medium, to fly towards a particular point when a creature enters that point, which you designate when you cast the spell. When a creature enters that location, each of those objects is hurled towards that point (unless it is affixed to something too large for the spell to move both of them as one). An attack roll is made for each one with a bonus equal to your caster level; if the attack hits, it deals 1d6 points of damage irrespective of the size of the object. Each object takes half its hit points in damage, plus another 1d6, even if it misses.

    You cannot target objects that are attended by a creature who is not you, but during the casting of the spell you can walk around the room touching the objects you need to touch to make the spell work.

    Animate Corpse
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Dead creature touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You cause a creature to rise from the dead, by lifting it up physically.

    You animate a corpse, making it half-undead and half-construct. The creature becomes halfway between zombie or skeleton (as appropriate - you cannot make a corpse that could have been a zombie into a skeleton) and animated object.

    The creature can only have hit dice up to your caster level; excess hit dice are lost. Half of the remaining hit dice (rounding down) are undead hit dice; the rest are construct hit dice. Apply the changes listed in the skeleton or zombie template, except for the hit dice and that the creature's type is undead construct. At the end of the duration the creature reverts to its usual, dead state. Unlike with spells that actually animate the creature as a typical undead, this spell does not make further spellcasting on the creature

    Hurl Enemy
    Animation [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level
    You throw a creature around the room.

    You use your telekinetic abilities to move a creature about the room. Each round as a standard action (including the one you cast the spell, using the same action with which you did so) you can choose a creature within 100 feet, then that creature takes a will save. If it fails, you drag that creature up to five feet for each size category it is below gargantuan (colossal and gargantuan creatures don't move), deal 1d6 points of damage per two levels to it, and knock it prone. You can't drag it into a square that's occupied by another creature or an impassable object, but you can throw them through squares occupied by a creature - other creatures dodge out of the way.

    5th

    Animate Creature
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: Up to 1 willing creature/level.
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You give creatures a spark of the energy that animates objects as constructs.

    The creatures targeted gain several benefits for the duration: they take on the construct type and lose the living construct subtype if they have it, while keeping their original type or types. This allows them to keep their own immunities if they have them, and although it deprives them of their constitution score, they gain extra hit points by size.

    The creatures also gain the natural armour bonus and slam attack of an animated object of their size (Diminutive slams deal 1d2 damage, fine slams deal 1 damage, neither form has a natural armour bonus). They additionally move 10 feet faster than normal when travelling across land, just as animated objects tend to be fast for their size and number of legs.

    6th

    Supreme Animation
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Target: Two small objects per caster level; see text
    You animate more objects than many others would manage

    Supreme animation works just like animate objects, except as noted above.

    7th

    Foewielder
    Animation [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    You pick up your enemies and hurl them at one another.

    Foewielder works just like hurl enemy, except as noted above and that you can throw enemies into or through each other. You can either throw the creature into another, in which case they take damage, and are stopped in the last legal space before the creature struck, or through another, in which case they pass through one or more other creatures. A creature only takes damage from being thrown once, but each creature that they pass through or are thrown into takes the same damage. You can also use this to damage structures such as gates, but you can't throw a creature through the space of a closed gate the same way that you can throw them through a creature.

    Creatures must be thrown in a straight line, so you can't circle around and hit multiple people with a curved path; further, no creature can be hit twice by a single throw. To throw a creature, if the throw does not end in an impact, the final space must be free and reachable within the distance. If the throw ends in an impact with a creature or object, then the closest square of that creature or object's space must be reachable and the space before that creature or object must be free.

    8th

    Sammael's Tsunami
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 10 minutes
    Range: Long (400 ft + 40 ft/level) and see text.
    Effect: One tsunami
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex partial, Fortitude partial, see text
    Spell Resistance: No.
    A great wave rises from the water and destroys all in its path.

    You choose a point in the spell's range to be the initiation point of the spell. Once you have done this, the spell's range is treated as infinite (do not ignore parts of the tsunami which move out of long range). Then, the tsunami, 40 ft/level wide, 20 ft/level long and 10 ft/level tall, starts to move inwards. It travels inwards 4d6 miles, crushing anything in its path. This travel is at the speed of 100 feet/round, meaning that creatures and objects will be within the tsunami for multiple rounds.

    The tsunami deals 1d6 points of damage per level to each creature or object in the area that it impacts and knocks creatures prone, with a reflex save halving the damage and allowing the creature to stay standing if they also pass a fortitude save. Creatures and objects already within the tsunami take half this damage each round, meaning that theyso saving reduces the damage to a quarter of the total.

    When the tsunami passes, it still leaves areas flooded to a depth of 1 foot/level, so creatures are liable to drown if they cannot swim.

    9th

    World Wakes
    Animation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 10 minutes
    Range: Long (400 ft + 40 ft/level)
    Target: Up to one colossal object in range.
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You awaken trees, boulders, and even the tops of mountains

    You animate a number of colossal objects, none of which is more than ten million cubic feet (100 feet by 100 feet by 100 feet, or equivalent), and which are natural. These objects then fight as colossal animated objects, with a few key differences. The object's space can be up to 100 feet (assuming that the object even has a square space, but either way, the largest dimension is the vertical one), and it may have attacks appropriate for its size and shape, such as a tree using its roots much like 6 tentacle attacks. Each of these objects also recieves a +20 bonus to its strength and to its dexterity and to its natural armour bonus to AC.

    Animi

    Detect Souls
    Animism
    Level: Paragon 0
    Duration: Concentration, up to 3 rounds.
    You detect the souls of creatures, living or dead, who have, had or are souls.

    You detect souls exactly like detect undead with the obvious differences that entail from detecting souls instead of undead creatures as well as those given above (the aura strength is based on the hit dice of the soul's owner, or the soul itself). Generally, only living creatures and intelligent undead have or are souls. Outsiders are monist: they do not have a separate body and soul and cannot be detected by this spell.

    This power comes with risk: rather than good creatures being stunned by high-HD undead, good creatures are stunned by high-HD evil souls, evil creatures by good souls, lawful neutral creatures by chaotic souls, chaotic neutral creatures by lawful souls, and neutral creatures by souls which are in no way neutral. To stun a creature, the soul need only have at least 4 more hit dice than the caster has character levels.

    Soulstrike
    Animism [Fire]
    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/level)
    Target: 1 incorporeal or ethereal creature.
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    You fire a blast of flame into the aether.

    The target creature takes 1d6 points of fire damage if you hit it with a ranged touch attack, even though you can't normally attack creatures on other planes. Much like a force effect, the soulstrike is 100% likely to damage incorporeal creatures.

    1st

    Summon Minor Spirit
    Animism (Summoning)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 1
    You summon a ghost to aid you in your plight.

    Summon minor spirit works much like summon monster I except that the available animals are lizard, rat, toad and weasel, and that the creature acquires the ghost template, with one of the special effects given on it. Ignore the requirements for the template.

    2nd

    Sammael's Visage

    Level: Paragon of Duality 2
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level
    You become possessed by a ghost, and take on a power possessed by a ghost.

    You gain one of the special abilities of a ghost: corrupting gaze, corrupting touch, draining touch, frightful moan, or horrific appearance, for the duration.

    3rd

    Summon Spirit I
    Animism (Summoning)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    You call upon a ghost to do your bidding.

    Summon spirit I works just like summon minor spirit except that the base creature is chosen from the summon monster I list.

    4th

    Vampire Blade
    Animism (Healing)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Weapon Touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You empower a weapon to heal its wielder by draining life from the victim..

    Whenever the wielder of the equipped weapon deals damage to another creature during the duration, the user gains half that many hit points, with any excess above the normal maximum becoming temporary hit points which last for the spell's duration. The vampire blade only works when fighting creatures with two or more hit dice; weaker creatures aren't strong enough for their life to power it.

    5th

    Summon Spirit II
    Animism (Summoning)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    You call upon a more powerful ghost to do your bidding.

    Summon spirit II works just like summon minor spirit except that the base creature is chosen from the summon monster II list and that it has two of the ghost's special abilities.

    6th

    Free Spirit
    Animism
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Dead creature touched
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You return a creature to life as a ghost, ready to do your will.

    When you cast this spell, you raise a creature as a ghost; you must have a vaguely intact corpse. The creature returns as a ghost, with three of the ghost special abilities. It is not under your control, but you can give it a general purpose and it does not attack you or your allies.

    The creature must be of a type that can be raised as a ghost, and excess hit dice above your caster level are lost for the duration of the spell.

    7th

    Summon Spirit III
    Animism (Summoning)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    You call upon an even more powerful ghost to do your bidding.

    Summon spirit III works just like summon minor spirit except that the base creature is chosen from the summon monster III list and that it has three of the ghost's special abilities.

    8th

    Sammael's Exorcism
    Animism
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Living non-outsider creature touched or intelligent corporeal undead touched.
    Duration: Instantaneous and 10 minutes/level
    Saving Throw: Will partial
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    You attempt to tear a creature's soul from their body, killing them instantly.

    The creature who is the target of the spell must take a will save or die as their soul is pulled from their body; they then appear as a ghost just as though you had used free spirit on them if they can be turned into a ghost. A creature who passes the save still takes 1d6 points of damage per level as their soul is tossed about.

    9th

    Ghostly Projection
    Animism
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Permanent or until discharged; see text.
    You free yourself of your corporeal shackles, and roam as a ghost.

    You take on the ghost template, leaving your corporeal body behind. Your body is protected, much as a sequester spell, from all other creatures. While you are in this ghostly form, you have a separate hit point total from your body, which is determined anew each time you cast the spell, and you begin at full hit points. Your body is considered to be resting while you are in ghost form.

    If your ghost form would be destroyed, you wake up in your body and the spell ends. You can also do this manually by returning to your body deliberately. If the body form would be destroyed, you actually become a ghost; even if you make a new body or you have a clone, you can't return to that body. You must be resurrected normally.

    If you can't be a ghost because you're the wrong type, ignore this and apply the template anyway. If you can't be ghost because you're incorporeal, add the ghost template except that the resulting creature is material corporeal instead of ethereal incorporeal, and then your ethereal form is sequestered instead.

    Level: Paragon 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 swift action
    Range: Personal
    Effect: Dagger appears in your hand
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    A dagger appears in your hand, the stuff of shadows and reality.

    A dagger appears in your hand when you cast the spell and disappears when the duration expires. The dagger cannot be used to hold any weight, for example to pin a bowstring in place so that it fires when the duration expires, and is obviously not real. The dagger can be the subject of spells that enhance weapons just like a real dagger.

    Figment Doll

    Range: 5 feet.
    Effect: Illusory doll obeys your orders
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You create a living caricature of a humanoid to do some tasks for you.

    You create a mindless diminutive construct with strength 6, dexterity 10 and wisdom and charisma 1, which acts on your behalf, moving with its speed of 15 feet to perform the tasks you require of it. It only understands relatively simple tasks, of the calibre of picking up an object and putting it in a location. It cannot use skills even if they can be used untrained, and cannot deal damage even if possessed of a weapon strong enough that it normally could.

    False Truth
    Apparition (Glamer)

    Target: Unattended object, or part thereof, of no greater than 10 cubic feet/level
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: Will belief
    Spell Resistance: No
    You make an object seem to be an illusion.

    You make an object, or part of an object, appear to be an illusion. For example, you can make it look as though a bridge has a gaping hole in it, and as though you've put an illusory bridge section over it, by making part of the bridge appear to be an illusion. Creatures who pass their will saves believe that the object is real.

    Phantasmal Dancer
    Apparition (Phantasm)
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/2 levels)
    Effect: Phantasm distracts creatures.
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will belief
    Spell Resistance: No
    You call upon a lasting dancer who repeatedly impedes creatures.

    The spell creates a pseudo-creature, vaguely humanoid in size and shape, which dances around the room, whirling tassels through the spaces within its reach. It moves as you direct, moving up to 30 feet each turn. Creatures cannot move through its square and opponents treat squares adjacent to it as difficult terrain, meaning that it can stop creatures partway through their movement and its whirl of tassels can stop creatures in the middle of their charges: a creature who attempts to move into the phantasm's space or an enemy who attempts to charge through the tassels' spaces is stopped before entering that space and wastes the rest of that action.

    A creature who believes that the phantasm is real can understand that it is likely to be affected by the tassels. Creatures who see the illusion block or slow down a creature can tell that it is real.

    Illusory Walkways
    Apparition (Shadow)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 100 feet
    Effect: Illusory walkway, 10 feet wide and no more than 20 feet/level long
    Duration: Duration chosen on casting, up to 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will belief
    Spell Resistance: No
    Those who believe in the power of the walkways can walk across them.

    You create a thin, horizontal walkway that can carry creatures who believe in its power. The walkway is no impedement to creatures trying to cross it horizontally, even if they believe in it, so it cannot be used as a wall. Creatures can stand on or walk across the walkway, which also needn't be in one section (although any section of the walkway less than 20 feet long counts as 20 feet). These can then be used as bridges or platforms, or as stairs or ladders (in which case the walkway can have flaps in the middle of the walkway bent out to serve as steps).

    Creatures who do not believe in the illusion assume that any creatures moving across the walkway have some other method of moving across, and disbelievers cannot use the walkway. Creatures who do believe can use the walkways, or they can choose to fall through them. They can even land on one, then immediately fall through it, possibly splitting a single long fall into several that can be mitigated with jump or tumble checks. A creature can even jump up through the platform from underneath, then land on top of it after completing a jump that takes their whole body through.

    Wall of Illusion
    Apparition (Shadow) [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Medium (100 ft, + 10 ft/level)
    Effect: Illusory wall, 20 ft/level long, 5 ft thick, 10 ft tall.
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving Throw: Will disbeilief
    Spell Resistance: No
    A wall of force springs up to block you opponents, unless they realise it's an illusion.

    A wall, completely immune to damage, appears at the location you designate and blocks creatures who believe, as well as their possessions and unattended objects, except for ammunition or throwing weapons launched by a creature who disbelieves in the wall and magical items which pass their own saves.

    Creatures who disbelieve in the wall can move through with their belongings (even magical items which believe in the wall). They can also fire spells and ranged weapon attacks through the wall, and even see through it, although creatures on the other side still have concealment.

    Apparition
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Willing Creature Touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will disbelief
    Spell Resistance: No
    A creature appears to take no damage from attacks.

    The chosen creature appears to be immune to attacks of any kind against that creature. Creatures get their will save to disbelieve this the first time an attack is made that hits that creature.

    The illusion is sophisticated enough to make everything else appear consistent with this - arrows bounce off, abilities that drain life from one creature and give it to another seem to do nothing in the way of healing, and so forth. This might make other creatures believe that they have, or do not have, some condition that was removed or inflicted by attacking the creature.

    6th

    Blade of Realities
    Apparition (Phantasm) [Fear, Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Weapon touched
    Duration: 1 round/level and instantaneous.
    Saving Throw: Will disbelief, then fortitude partial and reflex partial.
    Spell Resistance: No
    A malevolent spirit inhabits your blade, showing creatures just a glimpse of the horrors that await them.

    Your weapon - blade or otherwise - gains the power to slay any creature it strikes outright. This power is gained for 1 round/level and slays creatures with an instantaneous duration.

    First, you must successfully hit a creature. That creature is then offered up visions of their place in the universe, showing them the futility of their existence. The creature gets a will save to disbelieve these illusions, failing which they can attempt to pull back before the vision consumes them, rolling a fortitude save and a reflex save. Failing both causes death; failing a single one of the saves but not the other causes 3d6 points of damage. Creatures only need to save once per round against this effect from a single weapon, but

    Target: 1 creature/level in range
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will partial
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    The targets of your spell find themselves confronted with their worst nightmare.

    Each creature targeted must take two will saves: one as a fear effect to prevent being panicked, and the other to prevent being nauseated. If the first save is failed the creatures are still shaken, and if the second is failed they are still sickened. All four effects last for the spell's duration if they apply.

    Phantasmal Army
    Apparition (Phantasm)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/2 levels)
    Effect: Illusory army deals real damage unless disbelieved.
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will belief or disbelief.
    Spell Resistance: No
    You appear to summon up an army, and those who believe that you just did are assailed by the creatures.

    You conjure up a small army - 10 creatures from the summon monster IV list - which immediately fight enemies under your control as though you had cast that spell, except that all of the creatures summoned are illusions.

    Creatures are subjected to conflicting information about the status of the creaures as illusory or otherwise. A creature who passes their will save is able to choose whether or not to believe in the creatures, and failing causes this to be chosen at random instead. Either way, a creature who believes in the army can attack and be attacked by them just like normal creatures. A creature who disbelieves is ineffective against them but they also won't attack that creature. Further, creatures who don't believe the illusions can walk through or be walked through by the illusions, or even share a space with them, though if either of two creatures sharing a space in this way is attacked by believers or other illusions, a single attack roll is made and compared to both occupants' ACs to determine whether it hits one or both. If a creature starts believing in the illusions while inside one, both creature and illusion lose hit points equal to the illusion's remaining hit point total.

    Retroactive Illusion
    Apparition

    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Effect: You
    Duration: 1 hour per level or until discharged.
    You create a copy of yourself, or maybe not. You'll decide later.

    You split into two copies of yourself. One is real, and one is an illusion, but you do not need to decide immediately which is which. Track their hit points, spells known, and so forth separately. Each one is in a state of potentiality, and their attacks are only half real until they move back into actuality at the end of the spell's duration. No save is required for this halving to occur. Because the creatures are only half real, attacks against them are only half likely to hit.

    At the end of the spell's duration, or at any other time before, you can choose one of those creatures to become the real one and the other one to be the illusion. The illusion becomes fully unreal (and now allows a will save to disbelieve it) for the rest of the duration, if any. The real version works like the normal continuity of your existence.

    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will half
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    You launch a blast of energy at the target that knocks them out of their mind.

    You launch a spike of mental force at the enemy. Choose intelligence, wisdom, or charisma. The creature takes 1d6 points of damage of the chosen type, plus 1 per 2 levels.

    Secret Surrender
    Coercion (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 2
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Very Close (10 ft + 5 ft/4 levels)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round.
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    A creature bursts out the information that it's trying to keep from you.

    The target spends the entirety of its next turn doing nothing but telling you whatever information it is specifially attempting to hide from you, or the information it most wants to prevent you from knowing. If it doesn't have any information it doesn't want to give you, then it is confused for the round instead.

    3rd

    Force Mind
    Coercion
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/level)
    Target: Any number of creatures in range.
    Duration: See text
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You intimidate a creature badly

    You make an intimidate check with a +40 bonus. The creature you intimidated remains intimidated for an extra minute for each point by which you passed if you changed their attitude, or an extra round for each point by which you passed if you shook them. You can demoralise a target with this special intimidate check so long as you're in the spell's range, not only so long as you threaten them.

    4th

    Mind Hammer
    Coercion [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Duration: Instantaneous and 1 round/level
    You deal a finishing blow to a creature, and convert it to your cause.

    Mind hammer works just as mind spike, except that a creature who has an ability score reduced to 0 in this way serves as a creature under your control for 1 round per level before falling unconscious (if that creature has its ability scores healed, it immediately regains its ability to act normally, though).

    5th

    Antony's Interrogaction
    Coercion [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Creature touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will half
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    The target must answer questions correctly or be tortured by the spell's power.

    Each round, you can ask the subject one question that it must either answer correctly, or take 2 points of damage to intelligence, wisdom and charisma and 2d6 points of true damage instead of answering. True damage cannot be prevented, mitigated or resisted by any means except by passing the will save to halve the damage (a new save is taken each time) or by answering the question correctly, and it affects even creatures normally immune to the spell's effects.

    The damage is not taken if the creature doesn't know the answer, so long it says so. Otherwise, the damage is taken unless the answer it gives is true in spirit - the spell is not fooled by excessive literalism but nor does it use it to make excuses to deal more damage.

    6th

    Mental Strength
    Coercion
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Your physical body fights using your mental abilities.

    Your base strength becomes equal to your base strength or your charisma, whichever is higher. Your base dexterity becomes equal to your base dexterity or your intelligence, whichever is higher. Your base constitution becomes equal to your base constitution or your wisdom, whichever is higher. Any hit points gained in this way are treated as temporary hit points and are lost first even though hit points from a bonus to your constitution aren't usually temporary hit points.

    Any change your ability scores is reflected by a temporary bonus equal to the difference between the current base value of your relevant physical ability score and the current actual value of your relevant mental ability score. For example, a 15th-level character with a base constitution of 8 and a base wisdom of 14, wearing items which increase both ability scores by 4, end up with their base constitution changing from 8 to 18, a +10 bonus. The +4 bonus from the item is then applied to the constitution score. The creature's actual constution therefore changes from 12 to 22, which is also a +10 bonus, and the creature gains 75 temporary hit points.

    7th

    Overcome Mind Blank
    Coercion
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 hour/level
    You can target normally-immune foes to full effect with this ability.

    You can affect creatures normally immune to mind-affecting and/or scrying abilities with abilities of one or both of those natures, most notably overcoming the effects of mind blanks, but also allowing you to affect creatures with some other protection, or even mindless creatures (as most creatures which are considered mindless are still capable of some level of thought and even object permanence). If you try to take control of an undead creature under some other creature's control, you need opposed charisma checks to see who actually controls the creature.

    This spell also overcomes immunity to abilities which require will saves, even with some kind of rider on this ability.

    8th

    Mind War
    Coercion
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: 1 creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will negates/see text
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    You mentally fight a creature, the battle playing out in an instant.

    You take a will save, adding the spell saving throw DC to your save result. Your target then takes an ordinary will save. For every single point that creature rolls below your result, that creature takes 1d6 points of true damage. True damage cannot be prevented, resisted or mitigated by any means (short of passing the will save). For this special will save, even rolling a natural 20 does not guarantee success, but neither does a natural 1 guarantee failure (for your will save to set the DC, there is no special effect of rolling a natural 20 or 1 either).

    9th

    Cerebral Storm
    Coercion
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 60 feet
    Effect: Storm mentally damages enemies in range and may turn them to your cause.
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will partial.
    Spell Resistance: No.
    You conjure a whirlwind of thought, pummelling your enemies with a storm of ideas.

    Each enemy in range must pass a will save during each round at the start of that creature's turn or take 1d6 points of damage to each mental ability score. A creature who has an ability score reduced to 0 in this way serves you for the rest of the duration, just as if struck by a mind hammer to this effect.

    Target: Allies in range.
    Duration: 1 round/level (apparent time)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    Suddenly, the world stops, and you and your allies discuss your strategy.

    Moment of Thought is an exceptionally limited variant of time stop: you and your allies spend 1 round/level of time to do nothing except talk verbally with each other. Creatures who cannot speak for some reason can still move their mouths the normal amount, allowing them to mouth words if they are normally capable of doing so.

    Speed-read
    Cogitation

    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action

    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You look at a creature and find out some information about it.

    You can choose a single piece of numerical information about a creature, such as its armour class, flat-footed armour class, strength, fortitude bonus, fly speed, or balance skill bonus, plus another piece of information per 3 levels. You can also gain numerical information that is not a game statistic, such as the creature's age, but only information directly about the creature itself.

    3rd

    Pieces of the Puzzle
    Cogitation [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous
    You use the information that you have access to in order to determine the truth.

    You immediately work out which pieces of information you have access to are relevant to a particular matter, and the general way in which they might be relevant. You do not gain any information which could not eventually have been gained from extreme thought.

    4th

    Erika's Immense Scrutiny
    Cogitation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    You learn copious amounts about a single creature.

    This spell works just like analysis, except that the DM reveals the creature's monster entry to you.

    5th

    Extrapolate
    Cogitation [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level
    You work out what is on the other side of walls and fill in conversations you cannot hear.

    You can see and hear normally through walls, even if they contain materials which would normally block divinations - in effect, you are not actually seeing or hearing anything, only deducing what is occurring on the other side.

    6th

    Solve
    Cogitation [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantanous
    You instantly solve a puzzle, given the right information.

    You immedaiately obtain the solution to a puzzle or mystery if you have enough information, or if you don't, as close to the solution as possible with the information available.

    Erika's Contemplation
    Cogitation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous
    You reorganise all of your remaining spells.

    Add together the total number of levels of spells you have available. Then, lose all non-cantrip spell slots and regain non-cantrip spell slots of the same or lower total level, and such that you have no more spells per day of a particular level than you started with. For example, if you had a single ninth-level spell, you could split it into 3 3rd-level spells or a 7th- and a 2nd-level spell, but perhaps not into 9 1st-level spells.

    8th

    Ego Escape
    Cogitation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: None.
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Very Long (800 ft + 80 ft/level)
    Target: Space in range
    Duration: 1 round/level (D)
    You can cast spells from a location you aren't in.

    Your mind escapes your body and becomes the focal point for your spells, while your body is locked motionless into whatever position it was in when you cast the spell. You can cast spells as though you were in the chosen space. Your body gains DR 10/- and resistance to everything 10, as well as a +10 bonus to AC, but is otherwise vulnerable to attack. Your mind, however, is immune to being attacked, It also has a fly speed equal to highest base speed, and perfect maneuverability.

    9th

    Knowledge Overload
    Cogitation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will half
    You scour the realities for all information on a single creature.

    Choose any creature. You only need to be able to identify them uniquely, not know anything about them.

    Assuming you name a viable creature, you take 3d6 points of damage to each of intelligence, wisdom and charisma. This damage is halved on a successful will save. Whether or not you are knocked unconscious, you know everything there is to know about this creature. Pertinent details are brought immediately to your attention, but a little thought can bring up any piece of information about that creature's life, statistics, or even their personal true name.

    Only one creature's information can be stored in this way at a time, but your ordinary memory still works as normal.

    Convo

    Ignite
    Convocation [Fire]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 0
    Components: V
    Casting Time: 1 standard action

    Target: Object or creature touched
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex negates

    The touched creature or object Catches on Fire, and stays on fire until the flames are put out. Ignite doesn't work on non-flammable materials.

    Liquid Lightning
    Convocation (Creation)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Touch
    Effect: Vial of liquid lightning
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You create liquid lightning, a dangerous substance to the touch.

    You create enough liquid lightning to fill a potion vial. When the liquid lightning is thrown on a creature, it deals a single point of electricity damage before discharging. If a creature actually drinks it, it deals 1d3 points of electricity damage + 1 per level instead.

    1st

    Wield Energy
    Convocation [See text]
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Your attacks are imbued with a type of energy

    Choose an energy type; your attacks deal 1d6 extra damage of that type on a successful hit. This applies to manufactured and natural weapons equally. Whatever type you choose, this is a spell of that type.

    2nd

    Volcanic Sphere
    Convocation (Creation) [Fire]
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 30 feet
    Effect: Lava ball rolls out to end of range.
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
    Spell Resistance: No
    You roll a ball of lava towards your foes, knocking them away.

    The volcanic sphere - not actually quite made of lava, but close enough to do some serious damage - drags enemies back that it hits, moving foes along its line of effect to give it space to move. A creature who is struck by the sphere must take a fortitude save or be knocked back a square, and takes 1d6 points of fire damage and 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage either way. The sphere may force a creature to take up to 6 saves, one for each square the sphere tries to enter. Finally, the sphere explodes, dealing 1d6 points of fire damage, plus 1d6 per five levels, to each adjacent creature.

    3rd

    Summon Elemental
    Convocation (Summoning) [see text of summon monster I]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3
    You summon an elemental to fight.

    This spell works like summon monster I except as noted as above and that it can summon any type of small elemental.

    4th

    Smoke Burst
    Convocation [Air, Fire]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, F (A quarterstaff)
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous and 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Reflex partial
    Spell Resistance: No.
    You fire a burning, smoking blast of energy at a creature.

    You point your staff at the creature you wish to target, and fire a projectile that deals 1d6 points of fire damage per level (maximum 20d6) and grants all creatures concealment against the creature. A successful reflex save halves the damage and negates the concealment.

    5th

    Thrumming Sphere
    Convocation (Creation) [Sonic]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Fairly Long (200 ft + 20 ft/level)
    Effect: Huge sphere of sonic energy
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Reflex partial.
    Spell Resistance: No
    You create a thrumming ball of manifest sound.

    You conjure a huge-sized, spherical ball of sonic energy. The sphere remains suspended in whatever point you place it, and is essentially a solid object. Creatures who touch the ball take 1d6 points of sonic damage per two levels and are deafened for 1d6 rounds (even if this is longer than the remaining duration.. Creatures who pass the reflex save take half damage and are only deafened for one round.

    You can move the sphere up to 30 feet once per round as a free action. The sphere bull rushes creatures exactly like a forceful hand does when pushed into them, and even if it fails it deals damage (and stops next to the creature it damaged).

    6th

    Force of Nature
    Convocation [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    You create a creature made purely of force.

    Force of nature works like summon nature's ally II except that it's a force effect, so the resulting creature is immune to damage, can harm creatures on coexistent planes, and deals untyped damage. It can't be moved out of the square it's in, or moved through, by other creatures either.

    7th

    Prismatic Weapon
    Convocation
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Weapon Touched
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: See text of prismatic spray
    Spell Resistance: See text
    Your weapon is imbued with the power of the seven colours

    The touched weapon deals a randomly-chosen effect out of the effects given in the prismatic spray spell, including the roll twice and combine result, upon striking a creature. Spell resistance is rolled individually for each hit, and applies to creatures struck, not the weapon.

    8th

    Form of the Five
    Convocation [Acid, Cold, Electricity, Fire, Sonic]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    You become imbued with the power of all five energy types.

    You become an elemental and your equipment is subsumed into your body. You gain immunity to energy. You get a slam attack appropriate to your size and can make a full attack with it as though it were manufactured. Any contact between you and another creature - a touch attack, a natural attack, or each round of a grapple - deals 2d6 points of damage of each energy type. Further, you gain the ability to make a breath weapon attack which deals the same damage in a 60 ft cone.

    9th

    Volcano
    Convocation [Fire]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Very Long (800 feet + 80 ft/level)
    Effect: One volcano.
    Duration: See text.
    Saving Throw: See text.
    Spell Resistance: No.
    It's a volcano; what do you expect?

    A crater, full of lava and 20 feet across, appears at a location within range. Creatures are entitled to a reflex save to get out of the way, otherwise they fall into a pit of magma. The crater, and the surrounding 120 feet of land, starts to rise to form a small hill over the next 6 rounds, dealing 40d6 points of damage to each building, or discrete damageable part of a building, on top of it each of these rounds. Then, the crater erupts, causing choking smoke to move out of the crater at a speed of 300 feet/round for 20 rounds, and lava to move out at the comparatively leisurely pace of 60 feet/round for 20 rounds. Each creature in the smoke must take a fortitude save each round or be staggered in that round.

    The lava produced by this spell is nonmagical, so it goes through antimagic fields much like the results of instantaneous conjurations.

    Decep

    Look Again
    Deception (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 0
    Components: V

    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Until discharged
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    The creaure you target becomes less sure of itself

    The creature re-checks a specific piece of information chosen by you, and believes the new evidence even if it has changed from what they previously believed. This allows you to alter something and convince a creature to look at it again. The creature waits until it has a reasonable opportunity, rather than dropping everything it's doing immediately.

    Mind Patch
    Deception (Charm) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 0
    Components: V, S

    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 minute
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    A creature ignores minor problems with their beliefs.

    The target instinctively ignores oddities, or minor contradictions, within your bluffs, or evidence that seems to contradict it. Hard evidence and obvious contradictions are not affected.

    1st

    Falsehood
    Deception (Charm) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 1
    Components: V, S

    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    A creature believes something untrue that they've no reason to doubt.

    The target believes a single peice of information of your choice which they otherwise might have been unsure on. The spell doesn't help when the evidence against the information becomes clear.

    2nd

    Forger's Hand
    Deception
    Level: Paragon of Duality
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 hour/level
    You become a master at forgeries.

    You get a +20 bonus on decipher script and forgery checks for the duration.

    3rd

    Implicit Lie
    Deception (Charm) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 3

    This spell works just like falsehood except that it works even if the creature previously had an opinion, even justified by evidence. If the creature later sees convincing evidence against your deception, they recieve a new save for each individual piece of evidence presented.

    4th

    Mind Wipe, Lesser
    Deception [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 4
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: Touch
    Target: Willing (or unconscious) creature touched
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No
    You erase a creature's recent memories.

    You choose a length of time equal to or less than one year per caster level, and also equal to or less than the creature's age. That creature forgets everything they learned during that time - spells, skill ranks, levels, and ordinary memories. The creature automatically invents new memories to fill the gap, but these memories don't refer to any real creatures about whom the creature did not know at the time of the last remaining memory. Powerful evidence that the memories are fake allows the creature to recall its memories.

    5th

    Object Impermanence
    Deception (Glamer)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 5
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 minute/level (D)
    Creatures forget about you when they can no longer percieve you.

    You remove the concept of your own object permanence - that is, you remove the idea that you continue to exist when creatures can't percieve you. Whenever a creature stops being able to percieve you, that creature forgets your passing entirely. This means that creatures can lose understanding of how a creature came to die if you killed that creature, not even thinking that it might have been an invisible creature, for example. They don't necessariliy consider that you, or anyone else, might possibly still be there.

    6th

    Mind Wipe
    Deception [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6
    This mind-wipe is more accurate in what exactly it replaces.

    Mind wipe works like lesser mind wipe except as noted above and that rather than just removing memories holistically, you can choose a type of memory to be replaced. Because you can't actually view the memories, you must either be aware of the specific memories you want to remove already, or choose a specific category of memories to remove. These are still replaced with random, appropriate memories.

    7th

    Paranoia
    Deception (Charm) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level)
    Target: One creature
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    The creature chosen believes all creatures to be its enemy.

    The chosen creature becomes hostile towards its own allies (as chosen by you) and unfriendly towards all other creatures, and acts accordingly. It regains its initial attitude after the duration expires.

    8th

    Mind-wipe, greater
    Deception [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    You choose types of memory to replace, and what with.

    Greater mind wipe works like mind wipe except as noted above and that you choose the memories that replace the memories that are removed.

    9th

    Total Simulation
    Deception (Glamer) [Mind-affecting]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: One creature
    Duration: Permanent
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: No
    The creature touched believes whatever you want and acts accordingly.

    When you cast this spell, you gain complete and utter control of the creature by influencing its senses so that it always believes that it is doing something unrelated to what it is actually doing. This means that it cannot be affected by attacks which rely on vision, but because your simulation can make the creature's opponents appear where your opponents are, the creature automatically senses creatures as though it had blindsight. There is no chance to give it extra will saves to end the effect.

    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None

    You damage buildings and walls with a blast of sound

    You open your mouth, and a sound like a deep horn comes out. Each building, section of a building, wall or section of a wall in range takes 1d6 points of damage per level, ignoring hardness.

    6th

    Obliterating Blast
    Destruction
    Level: Paragon of Duality 6

    Kinetic Bombardment
    Destruction [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 7
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: 10 miles
    Effect: Random bombardments scattered through the area.
    Duration: 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: Reflex half
    Spell Resistance: No.
    You pull items from orbit and slam them into the ground with high speed and abysmal accuracy.

    Each round, you choose a place within range, and then randomly determine a location 1d100-1d100 squares away from the chosen location in a random direction (rather than choosing one of the eight grid directions, the direction is 1d400 gradians clockwise from north - there are 400 gradians in a circle). Then, every creature within 100 feet of the chosen location takes 1d6/level points of force damage as an object tumbles down from space and slams into the location. Creatures with evasion can't possibly evade the entire attack and take a quarter of the damage even if they pass the save.

    Buildings near the impact take 3d6/level force damage, ignoring their hardness, while anyone or anything actually impacted by the falling projectile takes 10d6/level force damage, and is extremely unlucky.

    8th

    Antony's Iconoclasm
    Destruction [Force]
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    Components: V, S, M (A holy symbol)
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: 1 mile
    Target: Each holy symbol or religious structure in range.
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Fortitude partial (Object)
    Spell Resistance: No.
    This powerful spell seeks out and destroys symbols of faith.

    Each holy symbol and religious structure in the area is destroyed. Attended holy symbols - even those unsuitable for use as divine foci - or occupied structures (or those of either which are intelligent) can take a fortitude saving throw, but they still take 1d6 points of force damage per level, ignoring hardness, if they pass.

    A holy symbol destroyed in this way shatters into fragments, dealing 1d6 points of slashing damage to each creature within 5 feet of it and an additional 1d6 to a creature wearing or holding it (This damage is dealt by the holy symbol, so silver holy symbols will bypass DR/silver). A holy symbol which is drawn on paper is simply destroyed along with the paper; so too is the fate of those inscribed on most other surfaces. A holy symbol on a cliff face will not bring down the cliff, but a little of the face of the cliff crumbles. Incredibly durable materials such as adamantine will resist, and only a minute layer (invariably not enough to deal any real damage to the adamantine) will fall off.

    A holy symbol tattooed on a creature explodes off them, dealing them 2d6 points of force damage, whereas a symbol only inked on merely reddens the skin as it leaves, just like rubbing it off with a pumice stone. Any kind of birthmark is not treated as a religious symbol and the spell ignores it. The creature can take the fortitude save for its symbol.

    A religious structure's collapse is treated as a cave-in for a creature inside. Creatures in a doorway to the outside of the building are almost invariably (Reflex DC 5) able to abandon the building fast enough to avoid being trapped.

    You create a perfectly accurate map of the surrounding area, which shows in intricate detail the types of materials, the locations of buildings, and even the insides of buildings. Mobile objects are not counted (assuming that they really do move at all regularly), nor are creatures. Every named location has a name written on it on the map, usually the most common name among the languages you speak.

    Unlike most divinations, the spell cannot be blocked by 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt, but any of those counts as 10 feet for the purposes of the spell's maximum range.

You then have an hour (in which no actions are needed to continue casting) to move through whatever means to the other of the two locations, and touch it. Locations can be points in space. Once you have touched the second location, the casting is complete - one of the locations, chosen by you, becomes a screen that can look into the other location as though through scrying.

    This spell works like cartographer's will except that it creates a scale model of the surroundings, that creatures can choose which parts of the model to look through as though they were transparent to see inside, and that until the spell is dispelled, moving objects and creatures are represented on the model and any damage to the model repairs itself.

    Dead creatures who come to be within 60 feet of the target creature are raised as skeletons or zombies, as appropriate, which do nothing but attempt to hunt down the caster. They have access to greater teleport and discern location at will.

    This spell can only be removed by wish, miracle or reality revision.

    Duration: 1 hour (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    Merge with Minor Creatures
    Morphism (Summoning)
    Level: Paragon of Duality 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 Standard Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level
    You summon a creature, then merge with it.

    You summon a lizard, rat, toad or weasel to merge with, and take on a dual form with it. You retain your own hit dice and type, and also take on those of the summoned creature. You take on the combined hit point total, the physical abilities of the creature, the mental abilities of yourself, the speeds of the creature, the size of the creature, the natural armour and weapons of the creature, and the physical shape of the creature. You subsume equipment that doesn't fit on the new form.

    Special attacks that don't depend on form are retained by you, while those which depend on form switch to the creature's set of special attacks that depend on form. The same is true of special qualities.

    Ari'El's Infectious Hibernation
    Oneirism
    Level: Paragon of Duality 8
    After many long and fruitless debates about the workings of the sequester spell, archmage Ari'El made this spell to show their colleagues the error of their ways.

    Ari'El's Infectious Hibernation works just like sequester, except that whenever a creature looks at the target's location without some means of seeing invisible creatures, or if they physically trip over the target or accidentally hit or kick them, or are otherwise affected, even indirectly, by the fact that the creature has been sequestered, they share in that creature's fate, though fortunately the entire spell ends at the end of the duration.

    You create a copy of the dreamheart - a roiling mass of energy a half-mile in diameter that deals 5 points of damage of each energy type per round, and also happens to be a hurricane. If the dreamheart doesn't exist in your setting, then the spell still works - some other reason for this can be invented to taste.

    You predict the future, so long as everyone acts as they intend to.

    You find out the events of the next day per level, assuming everyone acts under the intent they had when you started casting. Your own actions, however, are almost guaranteed to change some aspects of this.

    Level: Paragon of Duality 9
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 Standard Action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: Instantaneous
    You see into the future far enough that you decide that it would be a good idea to cast this spell.

    When you cast this spell, you are taken back 1 round/level. You can then replay the previous situation with the new knowledge you have - everything is the same as it was back then, minus the spell slot. In effect, what really happens is that you retroactively become in the position of having cast the spell, so technically you don't actually travel in time. Either way, any rolls that are made to do the same thing at the same time get the same result, but as creatures will inevitably change their actions, new rolls can be made for the new actions.

    The drakoid looks like a very mechanically-enhanced wyrmling. It can barely pick up objects in its claws.

    Combat Abilities

    Laser Breath (Ex)
    The drakoid has a mouth-mounted laser cannon which also feeds off the dragon's natural breath. The laser can be used once every 1d4 rounds as a 30 foot line that deals 1d6 fire damage per dragon hit die and 1d4 damage per construct hit die (the damage from construct hit dice is untyped). Against undead or creatures harmed by light, the laser's untyped damage is doubled.

    This creature looks vaguely humanoid from a distance on a dark night, but even the most superficial of inspection reveals it to be made of a writhing mass of rats.

    A rat elemental is essentially a large mass of rats, forming some kind of tornado of stacked rodents.

    Combat Abilities

    Dual Size
    To attack a rat elemental is to swing one's weapon throught the whole mass, but to be attacked by one is to be swarmed by the individual rats. The elemental is treated as a swarm of tiny creatures when attacking, and a large creature when defending, except that its slam attack has a 10 foot reach (and the damage is calculated for a large creature).

    Swarm (Ex)
    A rat elemental deals 1d6 points of damage per vermin hit die on a swarm attack.

    Disease (Ex)
    Filth fever—any attack, Fortitude DC 13, incubation period 1d3 days, damage 1d3 Dex and 1d3 Con. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Distraction (Ex)
    Any living creature that begins its turn with a swarm in its square must succeed on a DC 13 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Skills
    Rat elementals are made of rats, and share with them these properties:

    Rats have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks, and a +8 racial bonus on Balance, Climb, and Swim checks. A rat can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. A rat uses its Dexterity modifier instead of its Strength modifier for Climb and Swim checks. A rat has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    Hit Dice: 1d10+1d8+4 (14 hp)

    A servitor is an armoured cyborg, humanity partly obscured by gears and pumps. Its hands hold weapons already, but can also pick up, but not wield, objects.

    A servitor is still a human, just a heavily-modified one, and gets a bonus feat at first level, 4 bonus skill ranks at first level, and 1 bonus skill rank at each other level.

    Combat Abilities
    Grappling Claw (Ex)
    Whenever the servitor hits with its claw, it may attempt to start a grapple as a free action without making a separate touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity.

    Innately Armoured (Ex)
    The servitor has a +6 armour bonus to AC as well as the natural armour bonus that it will get as its owner gains levels.
