    Default Base Class Contest XXXXVIII: Ruins and Caverns and Tombs, Oh My!

    Ruins and Caverns and Tombs, Oh My!

    Welcome to Base Class Contest number forty eight! Let's have fun creating some breathtaking base classes! The rules are below, as always. Make an original D&D 3.5 base class and fight for the right to... uh, brag that you won this contest!

    1. You will be creating an original base class based around a theme of dungeons; anything is possible, from a master of an underground lair to a spellcaster that draws power from ancient ruins of old to an explorer of trap-laden tombs, so have fun with it! You may not post your entry anywhere else until after the contest is finished. If you have already posted a class under this theme, you may not enter it for this contest. You may use previous homebrew in your classes as long as no mention of the class or any part of the class was made in that homebrew. Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!

    2. Submissions are due by 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (New York/Miami) on August 2nd 16th 30th, and should be submitted in the format shown in the next post or in another way that's easy on the eyes. Feel free to play around with fonts, images, and the like; just make sure it's not hard to read.

    3. There must be a name, complete class, and fluff for both combat and role playing purposes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified.

    4. Anyone can participate. Everyone is allowed only one entry per contest.

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


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

    May your swords stay sharp, may the odds be ever in your favor, and may all of your die rolls be high...

    Gentlemen, start your brewing!

    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    When in doubt, set something on fire. If not in doubt, set something on fire anyway.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XXXXVIII: Ruins and Caverns and Tombs, Oh My!

    The Delver

    Many academics are content to remain cloistered in their universities as they research the outside world through books and scrolls. Not so the delvers. These adventuring archaeologists put the vast repositories of knowledge they have accumulated over years of study to use exploring ruins, tombs and other dangerous locales in the pursuit of their next great discovery.

    Adventures: Delvers are almost universally fixated on the pursuit of ever greater knowledge, and they know the most valuable secrets are invariably uncovered by adventurers. As such, delvers will often attach themselves to adventuring parties they deem likely to stumble upon some ancient discovery or another, and if nothing else they’re liable to find treasure that can further fund their research.

    Characteristics: Delvers are able to put their studies of various monsters to excellent use, improving their and their allies abilities to defend themselves and combat nearly any sort of creature. Additionally, while delver’s lack a rogue’s training when it comes to traps, their study of architecture and trap design means they can spot and avoid traps with amazing skill. Finally, while they’re nowhere near the peer of a dedicated spellcaster, delvers have developed a unique form of arcane spellcasting to aid them in their work.

    Alignment: The thirst for knowledge can take many forms, both benevolent and malicious. As such, delver’s can be found of any alignment.

    Religion: As a general rule, delvers tend to gravitate towards deities of knowledge and secrets. On rare occasions, however, a delver will become obsessed with an ancient or obscure deity whose existence they learned of in the course of their studies.

    Background: Most delvers start their careers in universities or academies, gathering the deep stores of knowledge that they will later use in their adventures. Occasionally, however, a rich eccentric will learn their craft from time spent alone in their private libraries.

    Races: Humans, with their boundless thirst for knowledge and willingness to take insane risks, make up a majority of delvers, though delvers count elves, halflings, gnomes and especially scholarly dwarves among their number.

    Other Classes: Martial classes particularly like traveling with delvers, as they appreciate the delver’s ability to bolster their combat ability with intelligence on their opponents. Wizards and other members of scholarly-focused classes can view delvers as rivals, however, and rogues often find themselves driven to distraction by the tendency delvers have of waltzing into and through trap-filled corridors.

    Role: Delvers generally focus on supporting other classes with their ability to locate and identify threats. Furthermore, their skills and maneuverability make delvers excellent scouts.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Delvers have the following game statistics
    Abilities: Intelligence is the most important ability for delvers, as it fuels both their spellcasting and several of their special abilities, as well as increasing their skill points. Dexterity is also valuable, as delvers tend to wear little or no armor. Finally, a number of a delver’s important skills are keyed off of Wisdom.
    Alignment: Delvers can be of any alignment.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A delver is proficient with all simple weapons. Delvers are proficient with light armor but not shields.

    Spells: A delver casts arcane spells from the delver spell list. When a delver gains access to a new level of spells, they automatically know all the spells for that level on the delver’s spell list, and they can cast any spell they have retrieved for the day as long as they have the spell points to do so (see below).
    Unlike other spellcasters, a delver fuels their spellcasting through a reserve of spell points instead of set spell slots. The delver’s spell point reserve is equal to their base spell points gained from their class plus bonus spell points they may gain for having a high Intelligence score (use the table for determining bonus power points to determine the number of bonus spell points the delver receives). Each spell the delver casts costs a certain number of spell points depending on its level, as shown on the table below.
    Spoiler: Spell Point Costs

    *A delver can cast a number of 0th level spells per day equal to 3 + their Intelligence modifier (if positive) without expending spell points. After that, a delver can cast further level 0 spells for 1 spell point each.

    To retrieve or cast a spell, a delver must have an Intelligence score of at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a delver’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the delver’s Intelligence modifier.
    While the delver knows all of the available spells on their spell list, the delver can only access a small number of them per day. Each day when the delver rests to regain their spell points they retrieve a certain number of spells that they will be able to access during the course of the day. The delver can cast any spell that they have retrieved at any time as long as they have the spell points available to cast a spell of that level. For example, a 4th-level delver can retrieve two 0-level, one 1st-level, and one 2nd-level delver spell.
    If a delver knows any metamagic feats, they apply them to their spells when the retrieve their spells for the day. For example, a delver might choose to retrieve an extended water breathing by using a 4th-level spell retrieved slot. Any time they use water breathing during the ensuing day, they must pay spell points for a 4th-level spell to cast it, and it is always extended. A delver could use a 3rd-level spell slot and a 4th-level spell slot to retrieve water breathing and extended water breathing if they wanted to have both spells available to them in a day. A delver cannot choose to alter their spells with metamagic feats on the fly, as other spontaneous casters do. Delvers using metamagic feats do not have an increased casting time as sorcerers do.

    Armored Mage (Ex): Normally, armor of any type interferes with an arcane spellcaster’s gestures, which can cause your spells to fail if those spells have a somatic component. The unique nature of a delver’s spells, however, allows them to avoid any chance of arcane spell failure if they wear light armor. This does not extend to any other form of armor or if they carry a shield, nor does this ability apply to spells gained from other spellcasting classes.

    Dungeon Lore (Ex): A delver can draw upon his vast knowledge of monsters to grant himself and his allies certain benefits against the creatures that they face a number times per day equal to 3 + the delver's Intelligence modifier. Using this ability counts as a move action.
    Using this ability requires a DC 15 Knowledge check of a type appropriate to the creature faced:
    Spoiler: Knoweledge types
    Show
    Arcana; dragons, magical beasts
    Dungeoneering; aberrations, oozes
    Local; humaniods
    Nature; animals, fey, giants, monstrous humanoids, plants, vermin
    Religion; undead
    The planes; elementals, outsiders

    The bonuses grated by dungeon lore apply to either a single creature or all creatures of the same race, depending on the effect used. The target creature must be within 60 feet, and the delver must be aware of the creature's presence, although they do not need line of sight to it. The bonus provided by the delver's dungeon lore ability starts at +1 at 1st level, and increases by an additional +1 for every three class levels beyond 1st (+2 at 4th, +3 at 7th, +4 at 10th, +5 at 13th, +6 at 16th and +7 at 19th). The effects of the delver's dungeon lore ability last for 1 minute. Unless otherwise noted, the delver may grant the bonuses from dungeon lore to themselves and all allies within 30 feet that are able to hear the delver. The delver can grant only one type of bonus per use of dungeon lore.
    At 1st level, the delver can use their dungeon lore to grant themselves and their allies an insight bonus to AC against all attacks made by the target creatures.
    At 5th level, the delver can use their dungeon lore to grant themselves and their allies an insight bonus to all attack rolls made against the target creatures.
    At 9th level, the delver can use their dungeon lore to allow themselves and their allies to deal a bonus to weapon damage rolls made against the target creatures equal to 1d6 per point of dungeon lore bonus.
    At 13th level, the delver can use their dungeon lore to grant themselves and their allies an insight bonus to all saving throws made against the target creatures' special abilities.
    At 17th level, the delver can expend a use of their dungeon lore ability to identify a critical weakness in a single target creature. The next weapon attack made by either the delver or a single designated ally forces the targeted creature to make a Fortitude save with a DC equal to the delver's Knowledge check or die (unliving creatures are destroyed instead). This attack must either be a melee attack, or a ranged attack from no further than 30 feet away. On a successful save, the target takes damage as if the attacker had scored a critical hit.

    Sixth Sense (Ex): Through long study of architectural history and accounts of famous dungeons, a delver gains the ability to notice secret doors and traps even if they're not actively looking for them. Whenever a delver comes within 10 feet of a secret or concealed door or a trap, the delver may make a Spot check against the Search DC to locate them. The delver can potentially locate traps with this ability that have a Difficulty Class higher than 20, even if the delver does not otherwise possess the trapfinding ability.

    Trap Awareness (Ex): The delver has an intuitive sense that alerts them to the dangers of traps, granting them a bonus to AC and any saving throws made against traps equal to their Intelligence modifier (if positive).

    Dungeon Senses (Ex): A delver's continuous exposure to pitch-black surroundings enables them to develop darkvision out to 60 feet. If the delver already has darkvision, then the range of their darkvision extends out another 60 feet.
    By level 11, a delver's senses sharpen further, granting them blindsense out to a range of 60 feet.
    A delver of level 20 hones their senses to their pinnacle, granting them blindsight out to a range of 60 feet.

    Tight Quarters Affinity (Ex): Delver's must frequently squeeze themselves into tight spaces, and a delver of level 2 or higher learns to fight and defend themselves effectively in such circumstances. A delver with this ability no longer takes penalties to attack rolls and AC when squeezed into a narrow space. Furthermore, when using the Escape Artist skill to squeeze through a space less than half their space's width the delver takes no penalty to AC and they retain their Dexterity bonus to AC.

    Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Starting at 3rd level, a delver can react to danger before their senses would normally allow them to do so. They retain their Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if they are caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, they still lose their Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.
    If a delver already had uncanny dodge from a different class (a delver with at least two levels of barbarian, for example), they automatically gain improved uncanny dodge (see below) instead.

    Mass Trap Awareness (Ex): A delver of 6th level or higher gains the ability to grant the bonuses from their trap awareness ability to any allies within 30 feet.

    Poison Immunity (Ex): Thanks to continual experimentation and exposure, a delver of level 8 or higher gains immunity to all forms of poison.

    Stone Shape (Sp): At 8th level, a delver gains the ability to use the spell stone shape 3 times per day with a caster level equal to their class level.

    Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): A delver of 12th level or higher can no longer be flanked; they can react to opponents on opposite sides of them as easily as they can react to a single attacker. This defense denies an opponent the ability to sneak attack the character by flanking them, unless the attacker has at least four more sneak attack granting levels than the target has delver levels.
    If a character already has uncanny dodge (see above) from a second class, the character automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead, and the levels from the classes that grant uncanny dodge stack to determine the minimum level an opponent must be to flank the character.

    Ethereal Jaunt (Sp): At 14th level, a delver gains the ability to use the spell ethereal jaunt 3 times per day with a caster level equal to their class level.

    Arcane Improvisation (Ex): Dungeon exploration is an unpredictable process, and the risk that one may not have the precise spells needed to overcome a given obstacle are almost unavoidable. Thanks to their unique method of spellcasting, however, experienced delvers are able to circumvent this issue somewhat. Once per day, a delver of at least 15th level may spend 15 minutes meditating, during which they may swap out some of their spells retrieved for the day. When using this ability, the delver may swap out a number of spell levels equal to their class level.

    Earth Glide (Ex): A delver of 18th level gains the ability to glide through stone, dirt of almost any other sort of earth except metal as easily as a fish swims through water. Their burrowing leaves behind to tunnel or hole, nor does it create any ripple or other signs of their presence. A move earth spell cast on an area containing a burrowing earth elemental flings the delver back 30 feet, stunning them for 1 round unless they succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save. Furthermore, the delver does not suffocate if they end their movement inside earth or stone.

    Create Portal (Sp): At 20th level, a delver develops the ability to open a gateway between any two points either on the same plane or between different planes, as per the transport function of the gate spell, except that the delver may open a portal between two points on the same plane if he wishes and the delver need not concentrate to keep the portal open. The delver may use this ability up to three times per day.

    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    When in doubt, set something on fire. If not in doubt, set something on fire anyway.

    Mirecarvers



    Info: Tombs, caverns and dark places are notorious adventuring locations. Dark creatures congregate beneath the earth, mad wizards hide their experiments from prying eyes and others simply make use of old ruins forgotten long ago. Mirecarvers are those who make the others look like amateurs. Seeping corrosive and corruptive magic into the earth they carve out intricate webs of caverns and tunnels while filling them with oozes and other such monstrosities. Warding such a location with various supernatural abilities they can create an impenetrable stronghold in days beneath even the most watchful of guards.

    Adventures: Frankly it is not uncommon for Mirecarver's to encounter adventurers in a hostile manner. Many Mirecarvers have a tendency to isolate themselves in underground dungeons surrounding themselves with fearsome guards as they preform experiments. These Mirecarvers can often find adventurers knocking on their door if those adventurers hear of a mysterious dungeon that might be filled with riches. Those Mirecarvers who explore often join groups bent on exploring underground places like the Underdark or other scholarly types in search of more knowledge.

    Characteristics: Mirecarvers are a fairly odd bunch with not a lot of shared characteristics. Those who seek knowledge and arcane power would generally find themselves more called to become Wizards and the like rather than spend time tinkering with oozes and slimes. Mirecarvers tend to be more introverted and find comfort being away from people, and due to their close association with slimes and underground places they tend to have that wish. Still that is hardly a universal trait amongst Mirecarvers.

    Alignment: Mirecarvers tend to be chaotic just due to their nature but once again it is a moderate trend not an absolute rule.

    Religion: Mirecarvers tend to be more scientific and experimental and often are not particularly religious. Evil Mirecarvers may worship slime demons or similar demon lords to Jubilex but that is solely for the promise of more knowledge/skill manipulating slimes and oozes. Still others find great comfort with gods of hidden places or secrets and praise them or hold an altar in their labs.

    Background: Mirecarvers are those who decided to follow a different path than most traditional wizards. Their method of spellcasting is far less efficient but also less reliant on personal skill with arcane magic. Mirecarvers can sometimes be curious individuals with not much talent for memorizing facts and tables but more skilled with experimentation and guesswork in their magical abilities. Others find fascination with oozes and other chemicals and wish to focus on those to the exclusion of other talents.

    Races: No race is particularly well suited to become a Mirecarver except perhaps a sentient ooze creature.

    Other Classes: Many classes find Mirecarvers a bit disturbing for the same reason necromancers are disturbing. While Mirecarvers don't desecrate or dishonor corpses, oozes are not particularly pleasant to be around. Many Mirecarvers find themselves allied with arcane spellcasters in need of minions to guard them or similar situations.

    Role: The main role a Mirecarver in gameplay is to provide minions and a variety of battlefield control. They have a variety of utility effects that their ooze minions can create as well as limited spell casting which they have incredible versatility in how they access it. In addition, they are quite adept at providing fortifications and hidden bases for adventurers to retreat to.


    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Mirecarvers have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Intelligence is the most important ability for Mirecarvers. It determines how powerful their summons are and how many they can summon each day but it also determines their slime grenades effectiveness. Dexterity is important if they plan on focusing on their slime grenades which require a ranged touch attack or if they plan on selecting Ooze Body Traits which require them to engage in melee.


    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As Wizard.
    Starting Gold: As Wizard

    Spoiler: Class Features
    Show


    Ooze Summoning: (Sp) The Mirecarver's most iconic ability, the ability to leach energy from the earth and coalesce it into oozes that obey his command. As a full round action that can only be done while the Mirecarver is touching the ground he may create one ooze in an adjacent square he knows how to create. He can use this ability a number of times equal to 2 plus his intelligence modifier.

    At 1st level a Mirecarver selects one of the three types of oozes to specialize in (Combat, Ward or Utility). Combat oozes are those who specalize in combat applications, ones meant to attack or crush enemies. Ward Oozes are a speciality type of oozes that only Mirecarvers can create. These oozes can spread and cover a large underground room seeping into the walls and ceiling and apply a major beneficial effect to creatures inside that area. Utility oozes are those which have more variety to their abilities, some may be excellent tunnelers while some may enhance slime grenades when sacrificed. Oozes and their various types and statistics are described in more detail in the section below.

    A Mirecarver knows how to summon one ooze of his specialty's type at 1st level and one ooze of another type. At every even level he learns to summon one more ooze from his specialty's type and every odd level he learns how to summon an ooze from one of the other two types. A Mirecarver can only have one ooze summoned at a time, summoning another ooze instantly dismisses the previous ooze. These oozes last until dismissed.


    Slime Grenades: Starting at second level the Mirecarver gains the ability to create small vials of alchemically infused slime and goo which he stores in vials he creates in the process of creating these slime grenades. After eight hours of rest he can as a full round action siphon magical energy from the earth to create a number of vials equal to the number indicated on the above table. The maximum spell level of a slime grenade is noted on the table above.

    The Mirecarver can infuse these vials with any spell he has stored in his alchemical notebook (See below). If a creature is hit by such a vial they are affected by the spell if it was a single target spell or the spell is centered on their square if it has an area of effect. Hitting a creature with a vial requires a ranged touch attack and the vials have a range increment of 20ft. This allows them to use personal or fixed ranged spells on other creatures if necessary. These grenades only last for 24 hours before they become unusable.

    In addition, the Mirecarver can as a full round action sacrifice an ooze summoned by his Summon Ooze class feature to gain another Slime Grenade. The Mirecarver sacrifices the magical energy inherent in his summoned minion, killing it in order to leach more magical energy out of the earth. In order to do so he must be touching the ooze and both he and it must be touching the ground. After doing so he may create another slime grenade infused with any spell he knows. Slime Grenades created in this manner only last for 4 hours before becoming unusable.

    The Mirecarver has an alchemical notebook with which he inscribes the many spells he has seen and researched and describes how to properly infused them into slime grenades. The Mirecarver starts with 2 known spells and learns one spell up to the maximum spell level he knows every time he gains a new class level. At 2nd level a Mirecarver chooses three schools of magic, this choice can not be changed later. A Mirecarver can learn any spell from the Wizard/Sorcerer List from these three schools of magic or the universal school. After seeing a spell and succesfully identifying it with a spellcraft check or by examining a spell completion item like a scroll and expending the magic item in the process of examining it the Mirecarver can add the spell to his alchemical notebook with 4 hours of dedicated research and alchemical experimenting as well as a DC 15 + Spell Level Craft (Alchemy) check. Unlike a wizard's spellbook a Mirecarver does not need to spend expensive regents to write down his notes in his alchemical notebook. The Mirecarver's caster level is equal to his class level and his spellcasting ability score is his intelligence score for the purpose of Slime Grenades DC's and other effects.

    Spells that have a casting time of longer than one round can not be turned into Slime Grenades. Spells whose area of effect radiate from the caster such as cones and emanations have their radius determined from either the square the slime grenade lands or the creature the slime grenade hits as appropriate. If the spell requires a creature target such as Magic circle against Evil, the Mirecarver must still target and hit a creature in order for the spell effect to not be wasted.

    Slime Body: (Sp) At 3rd level Mirecarvers become able to conjure up slime and transform their body in a variety of ways. As a standard action they can transform themselves into this oozelike form. At 3rd level they can activate this ability once per day. They gain an additional use of this ability at 6th and every 3rd level after that. Each use of this ability lasts for one minute per caster level. They can dismiss the effect as a free action. If they use Slime Body again while still under its effects than the previous version ends immediately and they can select new traits.

    When transformed they gain the immunities of the ooze type (Immunity to Stunning, Poison, Sleep Effects, Paralysis, Polymorph, Critical Hits and Flanking) while retaining their previous type. In addition they may select a number of traits from the list below to apply to themselves while in their Slime Body form. They may select any trait they know and each time they activate their Slime Body ability they may select a different trait they know. At 3rd level they know 2 traits they qualify for. At 5th, 7th and every odd level afterwords they learn an additional trait. At 3rd level they can only apply one trait to themselves while in their Slime Body form, at 9th level this improves to 2 traits at a single time and at 15th level it improves again to 3 traits.

    Spoiler: Slime Body Traits
    Show

    • Durable Body: Gain +1 Natural Armor bonus to AC while in Slime Form. This bonus increases by one for every 6 levels.
    • Agile Slime: Gain a +2 enhancement bonus to dexterity while in Slime Form. This bonus increases by 2 at 8th level and again at 14th level.

    • Boisterous Slime: Gain a +2 enhancement bonus to strength while in Slime Form. This bonus increases by 2 at 8th level and again at 14th level.
    • Slime Slingshot: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver may use the slime coating their body to launch and aim their slime grenades. They may add their intelligence bonus to their attack rolls with their slime grenades.
    • Ooze Slap: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver gains a slam natural weapon that deals 1d8 damage plus their strength modifier for a medium sized Mirecarver. At 13th level they can make two slam attacks in a single round.
    • Giant Ooze: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver's size increases one step. They gain a +2 bonus to strength and a -2 penalty to dexterity and their natural armor increases by 2 but they gain no other changes to those statistics from increasing their size.
    • Martial Ooze: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver can use their caster level instead of their base attack bonus for determining their bonus to hit with natural weapons.
    • Acidic Coating: While in Slime Form all of the Mirecarver's natural weapons deal 1d8 acid damage on a successful hit. This damage increases by 1d8 at 4th, 8th and every 4 levels after that. This damage also applies to anyone striking the Mirecarver with a natural weapon.
    • Regenerating Slime: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver gains fast healing 1. This fast healing increases by 1 for every 6 levels.
    • Accommodating Slime: While in Slime Form any slime grenade that affects the Mirecarver has it's duration doubled as if by the extend metamagic.
    • Resistant Slime: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver gains spell resistance equal to 11+their caster level.
    • Empowering Slime: While in Slime Form all of the Mirecarver's Slime Grenades gain a +1 bonus to caster level.
    • Tunneling Slime: While in Slime Form the Mirecarver gains a burrow speed equal to half their base land speed. This burrow movement can not burrow through stone nor does it leave a tunnel. However, at 13th level the burrow speed increases to their base land speed and can burrow through stone and objects with hardness equal to or less than 10.
    • Linked Slime: While in Slime Form any oozes the Mirecarver has summoned with his Summon Ooze class feature gain +1 to attack rolls and +1 bonus to their natural armor. In addition, they gain the effects of any other Slime Body trait the Mirecarver is affected by while in Slime Form.



    Experimental Nature: (Ex) At 4th level the Mirecarver gains insight into his research and methodology. He gains a bonus on Knowledge (Arcana), Knowledge (Dungeoneering) and Craft (Alchemy) equal to 2 plus 1/5th of his class level.

    If you DM is using rules for researching custom spells than Mirecarvers spend half as long and half as many resources as normal when creating custom spells.

    Efficient Crafter: (Ex) At 6th level the Mirecarver can supplement alchemical reagents with various slimes he can produce with his own powers. He only needs to spend half the required material components when using Craft (Alchemy). This does not affect the craft time and it only functions when the Mirecarver is crafting the item himself, using spells such as Fabricate or Unseen Crafter do not result in this reduction in price.

    Improved Slimes: At 8th level the Mirecarver has his slimes improved. They all gain +4 strength and constitution when summoned but more impressively the Mirecarver can have two oozes active at the same time from his Summon Ooze class feature. If he attempts to summon a third than he choses which of the other two is dismissed. Finally if he wishes he can have his summoned oozes become large instead of medium sized. If he so wishes he can still summon them as medium sized oozes. Oozes do not adjust any statistics other than reach and size bonuses to hit and AC, their ability scores, armor class and other statistics don't change upon changing size.

    Mired Fortification: (Su): At 10th level Mirecarvers gain the ability to infuse underground channels and caravans with his power. At 10th level he gains a pool of resources that he can use to enchant an underground location. The Mirecarver must spend one week in an underground cavern, tunnel network or similar location to claim such a spot as his base. They must spend at least 8 hours each day meditating in the same spot to claim such a location. The base's radius is at most one mile from the a central point where the Mirecarver claimed their base. A Mirecarver can only have one such base active at a time. He gains pool of "Fortification Points" which he can only use to enhance their fort. The number of these points is the same as a character of equal level would receive in money from the Landlord feat (Stronghold Builder's Guide).

    A Mirecarver can use these fortification points to enchant wondrous architecture and magic items for their fortification. When creating wondrous architecture the Mirecarver can enchant such magic items at a rate of 500gp per class level per day. Thus at level 10 he could craft a wondrous architecture feature that costs 5000gp in a single day. His fortification points are spent at a 1-1 ratio to gp for the cost of enchanting. He doesn't need to pay any experience cost to enchant his fortification but he does need to know all the spell prerequisites in order to create a particular piece of wondrous architecture. These wondrous architecture features are only able to function below ground as they siphon magical area from the land around them.

    The Mirecarver can also craft regular magic items in a similar fashion but those items only function while inside the fortification. If taken outside they instantly melt and turn into green ooze like material. In addition the Mirecarver must have the appropriate crafting feat and the spells and other prerequisites needed to craft the item normally. However, the Mirecarver can not craft any magical items that have limited charges such as wands or scrolls. Items that refresh their charges per day such as a Belt of Healing are allowed.

    The Mirecarver can mold the ground and earth in his fortification to create regular mundane items as well. They can create any mundane stronghold component such as walls, libraries, alchemical labs or a smithy. You can find a list of such features and their cost in the Stronghold Builder's Guide. Doing this costs fortification points as normal but the cost for such mundane features are halved compared to their regular price.

    If a magic item or regular structure is destroyed the Mirecarver regains the fortification points spent on such features at a rate of 1000 points per day.

    Finally the Mirecarver can maintain one combat or utility slime per class level in their fortification, sustained by the general magic leached from the surrounding area. These slimes are summoned from their Summoned Ooze class feature as normal but do not count against the limited number of slimes they can have active at a time and they last until killed or dismissed. These slimes however can not leave the half mile radius of the fortification or else they immediately die.

    This class feature is treated as a crafting feat and things that reduce the time or crafting cost reduce the cost of wondrous architecture or other such items created by this ability. The Mirecarver can't create anything that the Mirecarver himself doesn't know, thus he can't fill his library with books he doesn't have on hand, but as long as he has a general knowledge of how to build such a component he can build the rest, his magic filling in the gaps for him.

    If the Mirecarver abandons their fortification and meditates in another location the first fortification has all of it's wondrous items and similar features being ruined and worthless. The Mirecarver then regains their fortification points at a continuous rate over the course of the next twenty days. At the DM's discretion long held fortifications created by powerful Mirecarvers may retain their magical properties even after abandoned. Such locations can make excellent adventuring destinations.

    Efficient Concoctions: At 12th level the Mirecarver can produce Slime Grenades more easily from his various slimes. Now whenever he sacrifices an ooze to create a slime grenade he creates two slime grenades. They have the same duration and they do not need to be the same spell.

    At 19th level the Mirecarver creates 3 slime grenades per sacrificed ooze.

    Greater Slimes: At 14th level the Mirecarver's slimes and ooze minions further improved. They all gain +4 dexterity when summoned and the Mirecarver can now have three oozes active at the same time from his Summon Ooze class feature. If he attempts to summon a fourth than he choses which of the other two is dismissed. Finally he may summon his oozes as medium, large or huge sized.

    Plentiful Slimes: At 16th level the Mirecarver can tap into greater reserves within himself and can now use his Summon Ooze class feature twice as many times per day.

    Slime Embodiment: At 18th level the Mirecarver can use his Slime Body class feature at will and it lasts indefinitely until canceled or the Mirecarver uses Slime Body again.

    True Connection: (Su) The Mirecarver gains a steady and powerful connection to the land they claim as their own. As long as their
    Fortification is at least partially intact and on the same plane as the Mirecarver, then whenever the Mirecarver dies he may turn himself and all of his items into green sludge which quickly evaporates into the air. He then reforms at the center of his fortification with all of his equipment an hour later. Once he does so he can't revive himself in such a manner for one month. This is not a resurrection effect and things that trap the soul are ineffective at stopping this effect.


    Mirecarvers can create some fairly unique creatures which are detailed below.

    Mirecarvers have three types of Oozes they can summon, Combat, Ward and Utility Oozes. Combat Oozes are those specalized to fight enemies and defend the Mirecarver. Ward Oozes spread themselves over an area and apply magical and supernatural effects to that area and Utility Oozes are a simple catch all for non combat oozes.

    Oozes of all type have the following statistics:
    • Hit Dice: All summoned oozes have 1 Ooze Racial HD plus one per caster level of the Mirecarver.
    • Type: All summoned oozes have the ooze type and it's associated immunities
    • Armor Class: All summoned oozes have a bonus to natural armor equal to their constitution modifier
    • Size: Oozes are medium sized unless otherwise noted.
    • Speed: Oozes have 30ft move speed unless otherwise noted
    • Blindsight: Oozes have a 60ft Blindsight but are otherwise blind.
    • Telepathy (Su): All summoned Oozes have a two way telepathic link to the Mirecarver that summoned them allowing the Mirecarver to direct them as needed. This bond has unlimited range on the same plane of existence.
    • Not Mindless: Despite being oozes the oozes the Mirecarver summons have a small yet sometimes clever intelligence behind them. They are still immune to mind affecting abilities but all have an intelligence score. Despite this they still gain no feats or skills.


    Combat Oozes generally have the following statistics
    Spoiler

    • Strength score of 16. Increased by 2 for every 3 HD they have
    • Dexterity and Constitution scores of 14: Increased by 2 for every 4 HD they have
    • Int Score of 2
    • Wisdom and Charisma Score of 8

    Ward Oozes generally have the following statistics
    Spoiler
    Show

    • All Ability scores other than int are 10. Int is 1
    • Ward Oozes are one size category larger than normal.
    • All Ward Oozes have an ability "Activate" which causes the ooze to spread out over the surface of a region and produce an effect for those inside the region. To activate a Ward Ooze must spend a full round action and must be inside a room, tunnel or some enclosed space where they can cover most of the wall, ceiling and floor. The Ward Ooze then produces an effect for creatures entering the region. Large Ward Oozes can cover a 15ft radius room, a huge ooze can cover a 20ft radius room and a gargantuan ooze can cover a 30ft radius room. This area an ooze is covering and producing an effect over is simply called the ooze's "Activation Aura".

      While activated a Ward Ooze spread their body over their room and coats it in a thin usually mostly invisible membrane. A dc 20 spot check notices this membrane and detect magic registers the ooze glowing with transmutation magic. The ooze can still be attacked in this state and has an AC of 0 while activated. Multiple Ward Oozes can not be activated on the same area.



    Utility Oozes generally have the following statistics
    Spoiler

    • All Ability scores other than int are 10. Int is 6
    • Utility Oozes have half as many HD as other oozes.

    Description: Scry oozes can split themselves into multiple parts and allow the Mirecarver to spy in far off locations.
    Prerequisites: 18th Level
    Special Abilities: This Ooze gains the following traits.
    • Split (Su): Three times per day this ooze can split off a small one inch diameter dollop of translucent slime that survives even when this ooze dies or is dismissed. Whenever the Mirecarver touches an ooze of this type that he has summoned he can see and hear as if he was present at the location of every such dollop of slime simultaneously. If the slime is completely surrounded in a box or other material than the Mirecarver simply sees darkness but may still hear surrounding noise and conversation. Any extra senses the Mirecarver may have such as blindsight or telepathy do not function while observing through these dollops, only sight and sound. An individual Mirecarver may maintain a maximum number of these dollops of slime equal to his caster level, creating any more causes one of the Mirecarver's choosing to become permanently nonfunctional.

      Spotting such a piece of slime is not easy and requires a DC 30 spot check to notice it if it is just out in the open. If it is hidden this DC increases by half of the individual who hid its hide check. The slime is gooey and mostly translucent but it also sticks to surfaces such as walls and ceilings making it easier to hide. Despite being made from a magical ooze these dollops of slime do not radiate magic unless the Mirecarver is actively using them to observe, in which case they radiate faint divination magic. Despite being divination magic this effect bypasses normal such blocks against scrying and similar magic such as Arcane Sanctum and similar spells. The ooze is simply relaying the sounds and sight surrounding "its" body rather than trying to scry inside such a barrier.


    Name: True Hallucinogenic
    Description: True Hallucinogenic oozes can cause a creature to experience wild visions which allow it to solve almost any problem they have.
    Prerequisites: 20th Level
    Special Abilities: This Ooze gains the following traits.
    • Induce Perfect Hallucination (Ex): This ooze can sacrifice itself and pour itself into a willing or helpless living creature's mouth. The creature is knocked unconscious for an hour as it's mind witnesses various hallucinations detailing various events and possibilities. These hallucinations give the target creature advice towards a single event or goal the creature wants as the psionic power Hypercognition.
    • Tiny Sized (Ex): This ooze is always tiny sized.

    Aide

    By mattforsyth

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

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Aide's is proficient with simple weapons, but no armor or shields.

    Sworn Service (Su): The Aide gains a bond with their master that goes beyond mere desire to serve. The aide chooses a single master at level 1, any further class features that reference the master are in reference to the chosen master. Changing master is an expensive process taking a 1 hour ritual and 50g x Aide Character Level². The aide may only have one master.

    As long as the aide is no further than 1/2 their base speed from their master they may be considered adjacent to their master for purposes of Aide class. Furthermore, if the aide is no more than this distance from their master they and their master may share the effects of spells as per the share spells ability of a familiar.

    The Master gains twice the normal benefit form aid actions preformed by the Aide. The Aide takes a -10 penalty to d20 roll that oppose or impede their master, and half all damage dealt to them

    Heavy Lifting (Ex): The aide gains their level to their strength score for determining carry capacities and weapon damage.

    Bonus Feats: At the first level the aide gains 2 feats form the aide feat list. They gain an additional feat from the aide list at the following levels; 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 17th, 18th, 19th. The aide must meet all prerequisites of the feats acquired this way.

    1st level: Acrobatic, Agile, Alertness, Animal Affinity, Armor Proficiency (Heavy), Armor Proficiency (Light), Armor Proficiency (Medium), Athletic, Deceitful, Deft Hands, Die Hard, Diligent, Dodge, Endurance, Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Bolas, Spiked Chain, Whip), Improved Initiative, Improved Unarmed Strike, Mobility, Run, Shield Proficiency, Skill Focus, Toughness, Tower Shield Proficiency, any racial feat, and any feat with one of these feats as a prerequisite.

    Transgression Sense (Ex): Starting at the 2nd level the aide gains an insight bonus equal to 1/2 class level to sense motive. The bonus doubles for gaining a hunch. When gaining a hunch you can detect anyone that has core morals opposed to your master. IE a bandit aide would be able to detect someone was a snitch, the kings aide would be able to detect someone wished the king dead, a sheriff's aide would be able to detect someone that breaks major laws, etc.

    Avoidance (Ex): Starting at the 3rd level, whenever the aide would take damage that would bring them below 0hp the aide they may reflex save DC 10 + 1 per 5 damage. The triggering damage is halved. A helpless or flat footed aide does not gain the benefit of avoidance.

    Irrational Control (Ex): Starting at the 4th level, the aide may manipulate items to unwieldy to interact with normally. This manifest in way such as picking up a large boulder in one hand or single-handedly carrying an entire king size bed frame through a china shop, without hitting anything.

    Skill over Failure (Ex): The aide has experienced enough failure to know how to even the most disastrous bungles into passable attempts. Twice per encounter an aide can choose to re-roll a single attack or skill check roll after knowing the result of the roll. The aide must take the second result, regardless of whether the roll is better or worse than their original roll. The aide gains another use of this ability at 7th level and every two levels after that (3 times/Encounter at 7th, etc).

    At 10th level this ability improves again. The aide is now skilled enough that they may choose which of the two rolls to take.
    At 15th level this ability improves again. The aide can now reroll saves in addition to damage, attack, and skill check rolls.
    At 20th level this ability improves again. The aide may now choose to treat the result of any applicable roll as a natural 17.

    This ability may also be used out of combat, up to a maximum of once per hour.

    Vigilance (EX): At the 6th level the aide expands the range of their service to their master. As long as the aid can reach their master in a single move action they are considered adjacent to their master. Additionally the aide gains the constant guardian feat and the dutiful guardian feat as bonus feats.

    Grin and Bear It (Ex): Starting at the 7th level, when effected by a fortitude save with variable out come the such a poisons strength damage, the aid may fort save vs the original DC. If they succeed all variable effects are minimized, IE poison that does 2d6 con damage would only do 2 con damage.

    Beast of Burden (Ex): A 8th level aide adds twice their level to their effective strength score when determining lifting capacity, strength skill and ability checks, and weapon damage.

    I am your Sword (Su): At the 9th level the aide, while adjacent to their master they treat their base attack bonus as equal to their character level.

    Excellence in Service (Ex): Starting at the 10th level, while adjacent to their master an aide adds their class level to any skill check made.

    Unyielding Service (Ex): Starting at the 13th level, the Aide gains fast healing equal to their class level - 8. At the 20th level, the fast healing becomes regeneration overcome by their master and epic.

    Mastered Form : At the 14th level the aide, the aide gains a permanent enhancement bonus to strength, dexterity, and constitution equal to 4.

    Transgression Sight (Ex): Starting at the 15th level, gain true sight against anyone that has core morals opposed to your master.

    Grasping at Ghosts (Ex): Starting at the 16th level, the aide can treat any gas or plasma material as if a rigid object. They become contained in a sort of globe. The aide is still in contact with the material and incurs any effects of the material such as acid damage or lava's heat damage. Additionally they benefit form ghost touch as an extraordinary ability.

    Any Thing for the Master : At the 17th level the aide, whenever the aide is given a task by the master it instantly gain any ability that would be required to complete the task. Abilities gained are lost once the task is complete. An ability cannot be gained if a character of the aide's HD could not have acquired it, IE epic level item creation feats are flat out for a level 17 aide.

    Faithful Companion (Su): Starting at the 18th level, the aide ignores any normal level cap related to the leadership feat when acting as a cohort. Additionally the aid is considered adjacent to their master as long as they are with in 1 days travel by foot.

On a failed save the effect applies as normal. If the aide is at or below 0hp they instead loose 2hp on a successful save.

    Perfected Service (Ex): At the 20th level the aide's permanent enhancement bonus to strength, dexterity, and constitution equal to 6. Additionally they are always adjacent to their master as long as they are on the same plane.
