Warlock:

He always said I couldn't handle magic, that it'd consume me if I


wasn't careful. The problem is, I am magic, and he has no right to
keep me from it. He underestimated the amount of power within
me. Even as his spells are exhausted, I remain strong. He will die
for his arrogance, and nobody will remember him.
-Excerpt from a Mad Warlock's journal
Warlocks are infinite wellsprings of magic, coming
by it more naturally than even Sorcerers. Their
spell-like abilities (called Invocations) are often
less potent than those of more conventional casters,
but they never run out. Their magic comes either
from an inhuman (but not necessary evil) lineage,
or a pact with a powerful entity beyond earthly
reach.
Adventures: Warlocks are often fiercely
independent, frequently seeking knowledge, glory,
riches or power. If there is a chance they will get to
show their mettle, a Warlock will not be hard to
find.
Characteristics: Indomitable spirits, the magic in
their souls grants them vitality. Warlocks are
irrepressible, and rarely give up unless they must.
They are not averse to deception, and often must
hide their powers from a fearful public, often being
mistaken for demons or their worshipers.
Alignment: While Warlocks can come from a
number of different walks of life, and consequently,
any number of different alignments, they tend to be
Chaotic, more often than not. Evil Warlocks are a
force to be reckoned with, using their endless magic
to wreak endless suffering, while Good warlocks are
often shadow champions, protecting the weak
whether they like it or not.
Religion: Many Warlocks remain agnostic, relying
on their own power, but innate Warlocks often
worship gods of magic or trickery. Those who
receive their power via a pact often worship or
revere whomever they made their pact with.
Background: Warlocks can come from nearly any
walk of life, but they rarely receive any sort of
classical training in magic. Usually they are just

average people with extraordinary ancestors, but


those who gain their powers from pacts usually
have something about them that attracts the
attention of the power in the first place.
Races: Nearly any race can find Warlocks in its
numbers, but a few have more than others,
especially savage races such as goblins, kobolds
and orcs. Among the more civilized, human
Warlocks are the most numerous, especially planetouched individuals such as Aasimar or Tieflings.
Roles: Warlocks have a fair mix of firepower, utility,
and mobility, making them capable scouts and
decent strikers.
Abilities: Charisma is an important ability score for
you, as it determines the saving throws for many of
your powers. After that, Dexterity helps you with
your eldritch blast, and improves your AC, and
Constitution grants you some extra hit points.
Game Rules Information:

Skill Points/Level: 4+Int
Class Skills: Acrobatics (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Craft (Int),
Disguise (Cha), Intimidate (Cha),
Knowledge[Arcana, Planes, Religion] (Int),
Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int),

Class Features:
Proficiencies: Warlocks are proficient in simple
weapons and light armor. Warlock Invocations
aren't subject to spell failure due to light armor.
Invocations (Sp): Warlocks don't cast spells, but
instead use abilities called Invocations. Invocations
differ from other Spell-like Abilities in that they're
subject to armor-based failure. Invocations come in
grades: Least, Lesser, Greater, and Dark. At level 1,
a Warlock may learn Least Invocations. At levels 6,
11, and 16 he gains access to the next grade. In
addition to the normal Invocations known innately,
a Warlock receives a number of free Eldritch Shape
or Essence Invocations, (see eldritch blast, below) as
shown on the table. Save DC for an Invocation is 10
+ 1/2 caster level + Cha, and they are subject to
spell resistance and are standard actions unless
otherwise noted. Warlock invocations are counted
as arcane spells when applicable.

Eldritch Blast (Sp): At level 1, all Warlocks receive


this Invocation (which does not count against
known Invocations). This deals 1d8/2 caster levels
(rounded up) in a 60-foot ray. This Invocation's
effects can be modified by means of invocations
called Eldritch Essence (which add special effects)
and Eldritch Shape (which change how the eldritch
blast targets) Invocations. The Eldritch Blast's
effective level is 1 or the greatest level of invocation
currently applied to it. You may make iterative
attacks with this invocation as if it were a normal
manufactured weapon, dealing full damage with
each attack (but it becomes a full action). You may
only apply one Eldritch Shape and one Eldritch
Essence to your Eldritch Blast at any given time.
Exotic Arcana: Due to how a Warlock uses magic,
some things available to other casters may be
available to him. His Invoking qualifies him for
anything which requires any of the following:

Ability to cast invocations of a specific level
or grade, or ability to cast a specific
Invocation.
Prestige classes that improve caster level (arcane or
unspecified) also advance Invocation caster level,
invocations known, and maximum invocation
grade. If a class specifies advancing invoking
alongside another type of casting, apply only the
invoking advancement except where noted. Feats
that modify spellcasting can be applied to Warlock
invocations as appropriate.
Detect Magic (Su): Warlocks can use their intuitive
connection to magic to see magical auras around
them. 1St-level Warlocks are under a constant detect
magic effect, and are always treated as if they had
concentrated for 3 rounds on any given object.

Source of Power: As a result of your source of power


(be it blood or pact), you gain a few abilities unique
to that source. You must select a source, which
comes with a set of powers and a pool of feats. You
gain a power at level 1 and every 4th level thereafter
from the list given for your power source, in order.
At levels 6, 12 and 18, you gain a bonus feat of your
choice from the list given for your power source (you
need not meet the prerequisites). Finally, at level 20,
you undergo an eldritch transformation, drastically
and irrevocably changing your form. Upon gaining
this final ability, you cease aging, and no longer
take penalties from aging. You still receive bonuses,
and any existing aging penalties remain.
Damage Reduction (Su): The magic filling your body
grants you impressive toughness. At level 3, you
gain DR 1/-. This DR increases by one point at levels
7, 11, 15 and 19.
Deceive Item (Ex): As a result of your uncanny bond
with magic, you can use magical items with
unusual ease. You can take 10 on Use Magic Device
checks, even under duress.
Energy Resistance (Su): Your powers grant you a
measure of protection against elemental attack. At
level 10, the Warlock gains resistance 5 to two of the
following energy types: acid, cold, electric, fire, or
sonic. This cannot be changed, and increases to
resistance 10 at level 20.
Imbue Item (Su): At level 12, your ability to
manipulate magic, combined with your intuitive use
of magic items, you have gained the ability to create
magical items without knowing the spells involved.
When crafting a magic item, you can replace a
required invocation or spell that you do not possess
with a Use Magic Device check (DC 10 + effective
level for invocations, DC 15+level for arcane spells,
& DC 25 + level for divine spells). You must still
have the required feats and meet any other
prerequisites, and you must still pay any expenses
to make the item.

Sources of Power:
Warlocks gain their powers from some source. Be it
a blood connection or some kind of pact or blessing,
these sources are what sets them apart from the
average man. Whatever the reason they got their
powers, they will never be normal. Any ability that
calls for a saving throw has a save DC of 10 +
class level + Cha Bonus.

Alien Power:
You, or your ancestors, were touched by some
creature outside human understanding, be it the
frightful experimentation of the Mi-Go, or some
aberration's infectious bite, or stranger things from
beyond reality. Whatever the reason, they changed
you.
Eldritch Feats: Combat Expertise, Defensive Combat
Training, Improved Grapple, Ironguts, Iron Will
Unnerving Presence (Ex): Something about
you seems off, making it easier to coerce
others. At level 1, you receive a +4 racial
bonus to Intimidate checks. You suffer a -2
racial penalty on Handle Animal checks, and
against Aberrations, you receive a +4 racial
bonus on Diplomacy checks instead of
Intimidate.
Alien Life (Ex): Your physiology is strange and
warped for your race, making you more
difficult to cripple. At level 5, you have a 25%
chance to ignore extra damage from critical
hits and sneak attacks, as per the
fortification armor property. At level 13, this
improves to 50% fortification.
Starbound Step (Su): You seem to be
somewhat out of phase with reality, as if you
didn't belong there. At level 9, you can
replicate the effects of a dimension door on
3+Cha bonus times/day.
Acid Blood (Ex): Your blood has become
highly caustic. At level 13, any time you take
slashing or piercing damage, all creatures
adjacent to you take 1d6 acid damage per
two dice of your Eldritch blast (Reflex half).

Slimy Secretion (Ex): You secrete a viscous


chemical that allows you to slip out of
anything. At level 17 you can take 10 on
Escape Artist checks at all times, even under
duress. Additionally, Escape Artist is now a
class skill for you, and you add your
Warlock level to Escape Artist checks and
CMD. Any time an effect that hampers your
movement and offers a save, you may roll
twice and take the better result.
Eldritch Transformation: Your appearance has
become obviously alien. Your type changes to
Aberration with the augmented subtype. You are
immune to mind-affecting effects, and you are now
immune to critical hits, although not sneak attacks
or other precision damage (you maintain your
fortification from alien life)

Divine Blessing:

Damnation or Salvation(Su): When using


your channeling ability, at level 13, you may
choose to apply the effects of a lesser
restoration or break enchantment spell when
healing; or apply the effects of the curse spell
when harming to any targets of your
channeling. Your channeling improves to
that of a Cleric of your level-4
Divine Purity: You are resistant to the powers
of the divine, having a measure of it flowing
through you at all times. At level 17, you gain
Spell Resistance equal to 5+ your Warlock
level. This spell resistance is doubled against
divine spells.
Eldritch Tranformation: You have become a step
below demigod, and are considered slightly divine
in your own right. Your type changes to Outsider
(native). You gain immunity to disease and poison,
and resistance 20 to acid, cold, electricity, and
negative energy, not stacking with any energy
resistances from Warlock class features. Finally,
choose any two domains (You may not choose an
alignment domain that opposes your alignment).
You learn the first 3 spells of each domain as Least
Invocations for free, and can replace up to 2
invocations from each other grade with a spell from
either domain of an appropriate level (4th & 5th are
Lesser, 6th & 7th are Greater, and 8th-9th are Dark).
You may treat your invocations from these domains
as divine spells instead of arcane for any applicable
purposes. If you use an invocation as divine, it is
not subject to armor-based failure.

You were blessed by divine powers, either by blood


or by deed, granting you your magic.
Eldritch Feats: Blind-Fight, Combat Casting, Iron
Will, Skill Focus (Knowledge[Religion]), Toughness,
Weapon Finesse

out to 60 feet, and receive a +4 racial bonus

outsiders
Smiting (Su): At level 5, you can more
effectively harm those who oppose your
path. This functions as the Paladin's Smite
Evil ability, usable 3+Cha bonus times per
day. Upon gaining this ability, you must
choose whether this is effective vs. lawful,
evil, chaotic or good foes, and you may not
change this. This uses your Warlock level
for Paladin level.
Divine Power (Su): At level 9, the divine
power within you floods out to heal or harm
others. You can channel energy as a cleric of
your alignment, and with a level 8 lower than
your Warlock level.

Effendi:

Somewhere in your past, you, or an ancestor, had a


fateful dealing with a powerful Djinn, altering you
and granting you powers over the elements.

allowing you to grant the tiniest of wishes.
You can replicate the effects of mage hand
and prestidigitation at will, and can replicate
the effects of any first-level Wizard or
Sorcerer spell 3+Cha Bonus times/day. Each
uses your Warlock level as its caster level.
Elemental Power (Ex): Your powers grant you
the ability to manipulate the elements. At
level 9, when casting an Invocation that
deals Acid, Cold, Earth, Fire or Sonic damage
(including Eldritch Essence invocations
applied to your eldritch blast), you can
change the damage to one of the other types
at will.
Elemental Vitality (Su): At level 13, you gain
the ability to heal when subjected to
elemental attack. Your energy resistance
from this class includes all of the energy
types offered instead of just two.
Additionally, when you resist damage with
your energy resistance, you gain fast healing
equal to your Charisma Bonus for a number
of rounds equal to the damage resisted, up to
a total maximum number of rounds per day
equal to your class level. You can end this
fast healing at will.
My Command (Su): You have a acquired a
somewhat greater capacity to aid those you
deal with, either as favors or in bargains.
Once per day, you can replicate the effects of
a limited wish spell as cast by a Sorcerer of

type changes to Outsider with the air, earth, fire, or
water subtype. You gain immunity to electric (for air
subtype), acid (for earth subtype), fire (for fire
subtype) or cold (for water subtype), and can
replicate the effects of wish as cast by a Sorcerer of
your level once/day as a supernatural ability. You
must still pay requisite costs normally attached to
the spell.

Embrace of the Abyss:

You have some connection to fiends, either from a


demonic ancestor or a deal with fiendish nobility.
Eldritch Feats: Augment Summoning, Deceitful, Fast
Healer, Power Attack, Iron Will & Toughness
Hellclaws (Ex): You receive a pair of claws,
granting you 2 claw attacks that deal
damage appropriate for your size.
Brimstone Stench (Su): At level 5, you reek of
brimstone, choking your enemies. Any
creature that comes within 30 feet of you
must make a fortitude save or be sickened for
1 minute. After the effect wears off, or if the
save is succeeded, that creature is immune to
this effect for 24 hours. You can suppress or
resume this effect as a swift action.
Fiendish Resilience (Su): Your wounds close
on their own, and you heal at an incredible
pace. At level 9, you gain fast healing 1 + 1
per 5 levels past 9th.
Devil's Tongue (Su): At level 13, 3 times per
day, you can replicate the effects of a charm
monster spell, using the persuasion powers
of fiends and devils.
Inferno (Sp): At level 17, you have gained a
spark of hellfire that escapes when you are
injured. Any time a creature within 30 feet of

target only takes half damage, and this
damage is fire damage.
Eldritch Transformation: You have become a fiend.
Your type changes to outsider, and you gain the evil
subtype, and the demon, daemon or devil subtype.
You gain a +3 natural armor bonus to AC, spell
resistance 25, and any benefits and drawbacks of

attitude toward you improved by one step
automatically.

become truly adept at manipulating
illusions, and can see through them easily.

fairy world, and thus no longer beholden to mortal
laws. Your type changes to Fey, and you gain a +4
racial bonus to Bluff, Perception, & Stealth checks.
You and your unicorn receive 25% concealment,
and you are under a constant speak to animals
effect, and can replicate charm animal and animal
messenger at will as supernatural abilities. Finally,
you gain the tree meld ability as a Dryad.

Your contact with the fey has left you with


otherworldly beauty and a penchant for nature.
Eldritch Feats: Beast Claws, Fey Foundling,
Improved Initiative, Mobility, Nature Soul, Skill
Focus (Knowledge[Nature], Survival)

against those who would be sexually
attracted to you.

trickster, and can use the fairy magic in your
spirit to confuse others. At level 5, 3+Cha
Bonus times per day, you can replicate the
copycat ability from the Cleric's trickery

you are a virgin, at level 13, a unicorn has
attached itself to you. You gain an animal
companion that is statistically identical to a
horse or pony, except that it has a gore attack
appropriate to its size, and 2 extra hit dice.
Use your Warlock level to determine your
effective Druid level for this companion. This
unicorn shares the benefits of your
Supernatural Beauty and Fairy Trickery
abilities.

Wild Magic:

Your body overflows with wild magic. Nobody


knows where this force comes from, and it seems to
appear randomly in families regardless of planar
lineage or lack thereof. Wild Magic Warlocks
possess mastery over magic and randomness.
Eldritch Feats: Arcane Strike, Improved
Counterspell, Iron Will, Skill Focus
(Knowledge[Arcana], Spellcraft), Spell Focus, Spell
Penetration
Familiar: By chance or by purpose, at level 1,
you have acquired a familiar, as the Wizard's
class feature.
Power Surge (Ex): You can let the magic run
free when you cast an invocation, sometimes
creating a more powerful spell. At level 5,
when casting an invocation, you can choose
to reduce its caster level by 3. If you do so,
you can roll 1d8 and add the result to the
invocation's caster level.
Wild Metamagic (Ex): As a result of your
natural magic, you can improve invocations.
At level 9, 3+Cha bonus times per day, you
may apply the effects of metamagic you
possess with a total modifier of up to class
level (round up) to any invocation you cast.
The metamagic you apply must still be able
to modify it as appropriate.

Spell Absorption (Su): You can soak up


magical energy, using it to power magic
items or heal yourself. At level 13, as an
immediate action, you can attempt to absorb
a spell targeted at you. This is a dispel check,
as if using dispel magic. If you succeed, you
ignore the effects of the spell, and absorb it
instead. You can absorb total spell levels
equal to your Charisma score, and these
spell levels dissipate after 24 hours. You can
expend spell levels in place of charges in an
item on a one-to-one basis while using the
item, or you can expend any number of
absorbed spell levels to heal yourself or a
touched creature by 1d6 hit points per spell
level expended. You can not absorb your own
invocations.
Spellfire: You can use stored energy to
empower your magic, causing it to flash with
silvery flames. When casting eldritch blast,
you can expend spell levels absorbed via
Spell Absorption. Your eldritch blast deals
1d8 extra damage per expended spell level,
and its save DC increases by +1, per 3 spell
levels expended. When casting some other
Invocation, you can increase the caster level
for it by an amount equal to the total levels
expended.
Eldritch Transformation: You have become partially
pure magic. Your type becomes Outsider with the
native subtype. You add your Charisma bonus as a
deflection bonus to AC, and gain Spell Resistance
25. You also learn 1 Wizard/Sorcerer spell of each
level as an invocation (1st & 2nd are Least, 3rd & 4th
are Lesser, 5th & 6th are Greater, and 7th-9th are
Dark). The DM must approve each choice.

Dragonfire Adept:
Praise! Praise to she that birthed the noble dragonkind!
Praise be to Tiamat, mother of the chromatics!
In her service, we raise our breath and blade against the servants
of Bahamut!
-Tiamat's Children; Oath of Battle
Dragonfire Adepts are magicians that, through
supplication, study and blood rituals, have sought
to become like the great and mighty beasts known
as dragons. Unlock Warlocks, they do not receive
power from pacts with extradimensional beings, but
instead gain their powers by studying and serving
dragons.
Adventures: Dragonfire Adepts often adventure in
service to a dragon or dragonkind, but just as often
seek some piece of ancient draconic lore. Anything
that allows them to become more like the great
beings they venerate can be a motivation.
Characteristics: Dragonfire Adepts are often
arrogant and haughty, like the beings the revere,
and have the utmost faith in their abilities. That's
not to say that they're narcissists, but it's also not to
say they are not narcissists.
Alignment: Dragonfire Adepts are extremely
convicted. While they can be of any alignment,
many tend toward extreme alignments, much like
the dragons. Good Dragonfire Adepts seek to follow
the path of Bahamut, and his offspring the metallic
dragons, protecting the weak with magic and fire,
while Evil ones emulate Tiamat, and her brood the
chromatics, subjugating and destroying those in
their path. Neutral ones are rare, but often prefer to
contemplate the nature of draconity, often looking
to the ancient dragon god Io for inspiration.
Religion: Dragonfire Adepts often worship draconic
deities, such as Tiamat or Bahamut. Those who
worship non-dragon deities often pay their respects
to deities with dragon-like personalities, usually
gods of riches, magic or physical power.
Background: Many Dragonfire Adepts were normal
people who encountered a dragon in their lives and
were enraptured by its power and grace. A few

actually profess a draconic bloodline, but most


scholars agree that a Dragonfire Adept's stems from
their near-worship of dragonkind which, while too
broad to offer true divine magic, appears to be
enough to grant the magic they possess.
Races: While many Dragonfire Adepts are humans
or demihumans, a surprising number of them arise
in savage races, especially those that live near a
dragon's natural habitat, such as goblins, kobolds,
and the like.
Roles: Dragonfire Adepts can fill a variety of roles,
but are especially suited to support and area
damage, using their invocations to back up their
allies while laying down destruction with their
breath weapon.
Abilities: Charisma and Constitution are the most
important ability scores for a Dragonfire Adept, as
they control their Invocations and breath weapon,
respectively.
Game Rules Information:
Hit Die: d8
Skill Points/Level: 4+Int
Class Skills: Acrobatics (Dex), Appraise (Int), Bluff
(Cha), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha),
Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge[All, taken separately]
(Int), Linguistics (Int), Perception (Wis), Sense Motive
(Wis), Spellcraft (Int), Use Magic Device (Cha)
Class Features:
Proficiencies: Dragonfire Adepts are proficient with
simple weapons and light armor.
Invocations (Sp): Much like Warlocks, Dragonfire
Adepts cast Invocations. These Invocations behave
the same, and meet all the same requirements. You
receive 2 invocations at level 1, and their save DCs
are based on Charisma.
Scales (Ex): As a Dragonfire Adept continues to
emulate dragons, his skin begins to become scaly,
granting him a +2 natural armor bonus to AC. At
every 5th level after 2nd, this bonus increases by +1.
Breath Weapon (Su): A Dragonfire Adept's signature
ability is the ability to breathe fire (and breathe
other things, later). From level one, you gain a
breath weapon which deals fire damage (Reflex
half, DC 10+1/2 class level+Con) in a 15-foot cone
or a 30-foot line as a standard action. This breath

weapon has no recharge. The amount of damage


dealt is shown on the table below. At levels 10 and
20, the range of the breath weapon doubles. Any
class that advances Invoking caster level also
advances breath weapon damage, but not breath
effects known.
Bonus Feats: At level 1, you receive the
Dragontouched feat. Additionally, you gain one of
the following feats for which you qualify as a bonus
feat at level 3, and every 5th level thereafter:
Any Draconic Feat
Extra Invocation
Infernal Adept
Any Meta-Spell Like Ability Feat
Ability Focus
Breath Effects (Su): At level 2, and then at every
level divisible by 5, a Dragonfire Adept gains a new
way to use his breath weapon. Each breath effect
has a minimum level at which it can be chosen, a
type of breath it can be used with (cone, line or
both), and an effect. You may not use a single
Level

breath effect more than once in consecutive rounds.


(So, for example, if you used Frost Breath, then you
could not use it next round, and would have to use
a different breath effect, use the unmodified breath
weapon, or take some other action the next round).
Dragonkin (Ex): As you learn more about dragons,
you become better able to communicate with them.
At level 4, you gain a +4 competence bonus on
Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate and Sense Motive
checks vs. dragons.
Damage Reduction (Su): At level 6, a Dragonfire
Adept's flesh hardens against most weapons,
granting him DR 5/magic. This improves to
10/magic at level 11, then to DR 10/- at level 16.
Energy Resistance (Ex): At level 9, you become
resilient to elemental attack, gaining resistance 5 to
acid, cold, electric, fire or sonic. This improves to
resistance 10 at level 14, and immunity at level 20
Draconic Immunities: At level 19, you become still
more draconic, becoming immune to paralysis and
sleep effects, as well as the Frightful Presence
special ability.

Breath Effect, Energy Immunity, Breath Weapon (quadruple range)

10d6

Multi-Breath (Ex): At level 20, you have mastered


the use of your breath weapon, granting you the
ability to use two different breath effects at once.
Both must be usable with the same type of breath
(cone or line). If both change the damage type, half
the damage is one type, and half the other. This may
not be used with the discorporating breath of
Bahamut or the fivefold breath of Tiamat breath
effect. If both breath effects have some secondary
effect (paralysis, etc.), both are applied as
appropriate. If you use a breath effect which
prevents your breath weapon from dealing damage
with one that changes the damage type, your breath
deals half damage, reduced to a quarter on a save
(if applicable).
Draconic Perfection (Ex): As a result of the magic
you channel, you have become, to a limited extent,
a dragon yourself. You gain the dragonblood
subtype, grow wings that grant you a flight speed of
double your base speed at average maneuverability,
and learn any 4 Wizard/Sorcerer spells, 1 of level 12, one of level 3-4, one of level 5-6, and one of level
7-9 as a Least, Lesser, Greater and Dark Invocation
respectively. If you already possess flight, it
improves by 30 feet and becomes average
maneuverability if it wasn't already of better than
average.
Dragonblood Subtype:
The dragonblood subtype is a subtype denoting a
strong tie to dragons, but not strong enough to be
considered one. A creature with the dragonblood
subtype is considered a dragon or its normal type
for any effect based on race, whichever is more
beneficial (such as ignoring the effects of a hold
person spell, for example), and meets prerequisites
as if they were a dragon.

Breath Effects:

As explained above, a Dragonfire Adept can apply


these effects to his breath weapon, much as a
Warlock would apply eldritch essence and eldritch
shape invocations to his eldritch blast. Until you

gain the Multibreath class feature, you may only


apply one at a time. Applying the effect is a nonaction, but you still must make the normal standard
action to use your breath weapon. Each breath
effect has a type of breath weapon it can be applied
to: Cone, Line, or both (can be applied to either
shape), as well as a minimum Dragonfire Adept
level at which it can be taken. You may only apply a
Dragonfire Adept Breath Effect to the breath
weapon granted by the Dragonfire Adept class.

Acid Breath: Level 5; Both


Your breath weapon's damage is dealt as acid
damage.
Cloud Breath: Level 10; special
Your breath weapon takes the form of a 20foot cloud around you. Unlike most other breath
effects, this can be used alongside other breath
effects without the Multibreath ability, but only with
effects that can be used for cone-shaped breath.
This does not count against your maximum of 2
effects when using Multibreath.
Discorporating Breath of Bahamut: Level 15; Line
You breathe a line of pure energy (with no
damage type). This breath uses twice the normal
damage dice (so a DFA with 8d6 breath damage
would roll 16d6). Any creature reduced to negative
hit points by this effect is disintegrated into dust.
This breath has no effect on constructs and
inanimate objects. The save to halve the damage
from the breath effect is Fortitude instead of Reflex.
Evil DFAs may not learn this breath effect.
Enduring Breath: Level 10; Both
Your breath has lingering effects. Any
creature damaged by your breath weapon under
this effect takes the damage it originally took
from the breath weapon, next round. There is no
save against this extra damage, and those that were
undamaged (including those who saved against it
and have evasion) do not take any damage from
this breath effect.

10

Fivefold Breath of Tiamat: Level 15; Special


You breathe five distinct but overlapping
breath weapons:, all aimed in the same direction: A
cone of acid, a cone of fire, a cone of cold, a line of
acid, and a line of electricity, each dealing normal
damage and requiring a separate reflex save for
each. Additionally, if a target is damaged by
multiple simultaneous breath weapons from this
breath effect, they take an extra 2d6 per breath
weapon past the first (up to an extra 8d6, fort half).
This extra damage is negative energy damage.
Good DFAs may not learn or use this breath
effect.
Force Breath: Level 15; Line
Your breath weapon deals force damage,
similar to that of a magic missile. Thus, it affects
incorporeal creatures normally and bypasses most
resistances and damage reduction.
Frost Breath: Level 2; Cone
Your breath weapon deals cold damage
instead of its normal fire damage.
Lightning Breath: Level 2; Line
Your breath weapon deals electric damage
instead of its normal fire damage.
Paralyzing Breath: Level 15; Cone
Instead of dealing damage, you breathe a
powerful toxin, paralyzing any targets who fail a
Fortitude save.
Shaped Breath: Level 5; Both
You may choose up to four squares within the
area of your breath weapon which are unaffected by
your breath weapon. These spaces need not be
adjacent. Unlike most other breath effects, this can
be used alongside other breath effects without the
Multibreath ability. This does not count against you
maximum of 2 effects when using Multibreath.
Sickening Breath: Level 2; Cone
Instead of damage, your breath weapon
sickens those in its area (Fortitude negates).
Slow Breath: Level 5; Cone
In place of damage, those caught in your
breath weapon is slowed for Con Bonus rounds
(minimum 2) and suffers a penalty to AC equal to
your Con bonus (minimum -1 penalty). A Fortitude
save reduces this to 1 round.

Thunder Breath: Level 10; Cone


Your breath weapon deals sonic damage,
and the save for half damage becomes Fortitude.
Weakening Breath: Level 5; Cone
In place of hit point damage, your breath
weapon deals Strength damage equal to the
damage dice of your breath weapon. (Fort negates)
If used with the Multibreath effect, this becomes a
flat 2 Strength damage instead.

Divinity: Your pact with your god or gods (both


through your divine magic and your Warlock
powers) continues to advance. Levels in this class
stack with Warlock levels for determining your
Eldritch Powers afforded you from the Divine
Blessing power source. If you are not a Warlock, you
instead begin gaining Eldritch Powers from the
Divine Blessing power source. If you later gain
Warlock levels, you must choose the Divine Blessing
power source. If you worship an different type of
creature (such as an Archfiend or Aboleth), the DM
may allow you to substitute a different power
source.
Gift of the Divine Patron (Su): At level 1, and every
3rd level thereafter, you gain a new blessing from
your deity. In order to use the ability, you must
spend a Channel Energy use as a swift action.
Corrupting Blast: Instead of using an eldritch
essence invocation, you can make your
eldritch blast apply a penalty to the target's
Will saves equal to your class level (round
up). This penalty persists for only one round.
Crusader's Frenzy: You gain a +2 on attack
and damage rolls with melee weapons and
your eldritch blast for 3+Cha Bonus rounds.
Damage Reduction: You gain DR x/cold iron,
with x being your class level for 3+Cha
Bonus rounds. This stacks with the Warlock's
DR.
Divine Resistance: You gain resistance 10 +
class level to fire and acid damage for 3+Cha
Bonus rounds. This stacks with Warlock
energy resistance.
Fearful Glare: You can render an enemy
within 30 feet with no more HD than yourself
shaken for 1 round (Will negates, DC
10+class level+Cha Bonus)
Healing Blast: Instead of applying an eldritch
essence to your eldritch blast, you can make
it a healing blast, which heals damage when
used on living creatures instead of damaging
them. It still damages undead, and has no
effect on constructs.

Protective Aura: You create a magic aura


effect against an alignment opposing your
deity's centered on yourself which remains
for 3+Cha bonus rounds.
Strength of Will: You gain a + class level
bonus on Will saves for 3+Cha Bonus
rounds.
Divine Vigor (Su): You receive 1 bonus hit point per
hit die from level 2 onward, to reflect your divine
favor. This bonus applies to all future hit dice
gained. The bonus is not retroactive for hit dice
gained before the level at which you gained this
class feature, but when the bonus improves to +2 or
+3, it is retroactive for hit dice which received the
bonus already.
Ability Boosts (Ex): You improve at even the most
basic level, thanks to your god, having your
Constitution, Charisma and Wisdom at levels 3, 6
& 9, respectively, increased by 2 each.
Eldritch Feats: At level 5, you gain a bonus feat from
the Divine Blessing (or appropriate power source, if
otherwise) list, ignoring prerequisites.
Eldritch Spellweave (Su): At level 5, you gain the
ability to apply Eldritch Essence invocations (other
than greatreach blast or spellblast, see the Eldritch
Theurge class) to any divine spell that affects a
target or requires a touch attack. The spell can be of
no level lower than the essence invocation applied
to it. The essence effect uses its own separate save
from the spell, and Essence Invocations that change
damage can only be applied to damaging spells.
This increases the spell's casting time to a full-round
action, if it wasn't already. You may use this ability
3+Cha bonus times/day.
Timeless Body (Ex): Your god has blessed you with
incredible longevity, rendering you immune to the
negative effects of aging. You no longer have a
maximum lifespan.

Eldritch Theurge:

Sorcerer, Warlock, do we really need all these


labels? Why not just call me...Master.
Black Mask, conqueror and Eldritch Theurge
Eldritch Theurges are arcanists who have
decided to use their knowledge and talent to unlock
the secrets of the Warlock. Such magi are some of
the most versatile in existence.
Requirements:
Skills: Knowledge[Arcana] 5,
Knowledge[Planes] 5
Spellcasting: Able to cast 2nd arcane spells
Invocations: Able to use least invocations
Special: Eldritch blast 2d8
GRI:
Hit Die: d6
Skill Points/Level: 2 + Int
Class Skills: Bluff, Craft, Intimidate, Knowledge
(arcana), Knowledge (religion), Knowledge (the

Class Features:
Spellcasting: At each level, you advance your arcane
casting ability, including caster level, spells known,
and spells per day in a single arcane casting class
as if you had gained a level in that class. This
advancement can not be applied to an invoking
class.
Level BAB Fort Ref Will Special

Invoking: At each level, your invoking ability in a


single class, including caster level, invocations
known, and maximum invocation grade, advances
as if you had gained a single level in the class.
Damage Reduction (Su): You gain DR 1/- at 1st level,
stacking with DR gained from other classes. At
levels 4, 7 & 10, the DR increases by 1 each.
Fiendish Resilience (Su): You gain Fiendish
Resilience, as the Warlock Eldritch power, adding
your Eldritch Theurge level to your Warlock level. If
you have the Embrace of the Abyss power source,
this stacks with the Fiendish Resilience gained from
Warlock levels.
Arcane Surge (Ex): Your mastery of magic allows
you to sacrifice arcane power to improve your
invocations. You can apply metamagic feats with a
total level modifier no greater than the level given
for your class level to one of your invocations by
expending one arcane spell slot or prepared arcane
spell of equal or greater level. This makes the
invocation a full-round action (if it wasn't already),
similarly to applying a metamagic to a spontaneous
spell, and if you have an ability that negates such a
casting time increase, it applies here.
Bonus Invocations (Sp): You learn the spellblast
invocation for free at level 3, and greatreach blast at
level 10. These do not count against invocations
known, and can't be swapped like most invocations.

ability to apply Eldritch Essence invocations (other
than greatreach blast or spellblast) to any arcane
spell that affects a target or requires a touch attack.
The spell can be of no level lower than the essence
invocation applied to it. The essence effect uses its
own separate save from the spell, and Essence
Invocations that change damage can only be
applied to damaging spells. This increases the
spell's casting time to a full-round action, if it wasn't
already. You may use this ability 3+Cha bonus
times/day.
SPELLBLAST (Lesser, Special)
Classes: Eldritch Theurge
School (Subschool): Universal

You can attach an arcane spell that affects an area
to your eldritch blast. The spell, if your eldritch
blast hits, goes off on your first target (and it is not
carried by an eldritch chain, or other effects). If it
misses, the spell is lost without effect. The spell
applied must be an area spell with a casting time no
greater than 1 standard action. The level of this
invocation is equal to the level of spell used. You
may only use this invocation with shapes that
specify a target.
GREATREACH BLAST (Greater, Special)

the increases from this class's Invocation

Damnation Points (Ex): You receive a pool of


damnation points equal to your class level + your
Charisma bonus. You can not spend these points in
the confines of a consecrate, hallow, or magic circle
against evil spell. These points refresh at the end of

can spend damnation points, binding the essence of
a demon to yourself to gain some special benefits.
Some may offer you additional ways to use
damnation points, which can only be used while
that particular Demonbind is active. If you enter the
area of a hallow or consecrate spell, the effects of
your Demonbind are suppressed until you exit. If
you are targeted by banishment or dismissal, your
Demonbind is removed. This is a full-round action
to activate, and lasts for 10 rounds. You may only
have one Demonbind active at a time, and entering
a new one ends the previous one. Temporary hits
points from Demonbinds last until the Demonbind
ends. Any saving throw for a Demonbind ability is
DC 10 + Class level + Cha bonus. At level 10, you
may have two demonbinds active at once, gaining

point as a swift action to gain a +5

checks.
Yochlol (4 points): Your flesh takes on a
slightly amorphous appearance,
occasionally forming tiny vestigial tendrils
that wave about as if searching for
something. You gain 20 temporary hit points,
and you have a 25% chance to ignore the
extra damage from a critical hit or sneak
attack. Also, you can spend one damnation
point as a swift action to use gaseous form
on yourself.

of your mouth. As you move, puffs of
harmless dust rise from your body. You gain
25 temporary hit points. In addition, you can
spend 1 damnation point as a swift action to
augment your eldritch blast with screeching
sonic energy. A target struck by this eldritch
blast takes an additional 10 points of sonic
damage and becomes deafened for 5 rounds
(Fort negates deafness).

fuse into a green serpent's tail, and your eyes
burn with an unholy light. You gain 40

any) are your primary arms, and the new

limbs are secondary limbs. You can wield


extra weapons with these new limbs, but all
such attacks are treated as offhand attacks.
Also, you can spend 1 damnation point as a
swift action to use one of your new limbs to

your back, and angry red flames wreathe
your body. You gain 45 temporary hit points

a melee touch attack that deals fire damage
equal to the damage normally dealt by your
eldritch blast.

level 2, improving by 2 at levels 6 and 10.

to poison, including magical poison.

Planar Fire Warlock:

Hellfire? That's a little dramatic. It's just surpernal


fire purified through an arcane matrix. But I see by
your pitchforks and torches you're not here for a
lecture. Very well.
An unknown Warlock before wiping out a village
Planar Fire Warlocks, or Hellfire Warlocks,
insofar as they can be called that, are Warlocks
who have mastered the art of harnessing Planar
Fire, a primordial form of fire found in many
planes, especially the Hells (hence the name). While
many misguided Warlock attribute the power to
demons, it is open to nearly all creatures who are
willing to take the punishment required to make use
of the power.

Requirements:
Skills: Intimidate 3, Knowledge[Planes] 9,
Spellcraft 3
Invocation: Must know brimstone blast
and/or hellrime blast.
GRI:
Hit Die: d8
Skill Points/Level: 2+Int
Class Skills: Disguise, Intimidate, Knowledge
(arcana), Knowledge (the planes), Knowledge
(religion), Spellcraft, Use Magic Device.
Class Features:
Planar Fire Blast (Sp): If you are willing to pay the
price, you can turn your eldritch blast into a hellfire
blast. Your eldritch blast deals an extra 2d6
damage per class level. This isn't normal fire, but
Planar Fire, a force which ignores resistance and
immunity to fire. There is a downside to this ability,
however, which is that every time you use a planar
fire blast, you take 1 point of Constitution damage,
which can not be reduced or avoided in any way
(although it can still be healed as normal.) This
Constitution damage ignores normal immunities,
and if you are of a race that does not have a
Constitution score, you take damage to whichever
ability score determines your hit points, if any.
Invoking: At each level, your caster level,
invocations known, and maximum invocation
grade advance as if you had gained a level in an
invoking class. Additionally, at each level, your
Warlock Source of Power advances as if you had
gained a Warlock level.
Fire Resistance (Ex): At level 2, you gain resistance
10 to fire damage, stacking with fire resistances
from other sources.
Planar Fire Infusion (Su): At level 2, you gain the
ability to apply the effects Empower Spell, Maximize
Spell, or any metamagic feat of level adjustment +1
or less to magic items when using them, as a swift
action, a number of times per day equal to your
Charisma bonus.

Planar Fire Shield (Sp): At level 3, you gain the


ability to shield yourself in planar fire. As an
immediate action in response to a melee attack, you
can deal damage to the attacker equal to your
eldritch blast. You can use hellfire blast in
conjunction with this ability by taking the normal
Constitution damage.

Feats:
There are a number of feats intended for use with
the Warlock and DFAs, as well as feats useful to
them and other casters.
Metamagic Feats and Invocations:
Only metamagic feats without level
modification can be applied to invocations as if
they were normal spells. This doesn't increase their
casting time. If you are able to reduce a metamagic
feat's level modifier down to +0, you may apply
them in the same way. If a feat requires you have a
spell of a certain school, level or descriptor
available to cast in order to use the feat, then an
invocation of the same school or descriptor meets
the requirements.
Black Lore [Metamagic]
Your knowledge of dark secrets empowers your
necromancy.
Prerequisite: Spell Focus [Necromancy], Caster
level 7
Benefit: Any necromancy spell you cast can be cast
instead as a Black Lore spell, dealing an extra 1d6
points of negative energy damage +1d6 per two
spell levels (+1d6 for 1st-level spells, +2d6 for 2ndor 3rd-level spells, etc.). If the spell normally allows
a saving throw, the target takes half the negative
energy damage on a successful save, regardless of
the outcome of the save on the spell's normal effect.
In addition to its normal spell components, a Black
Lore spell requires the creation and expenditure of a
runebone: a small human bone scribed with
carefully prepared arcane markings. Only a
character trained in the Black Lore knows the
secrets of creating a runebone, which takes 1 hour
to craft and requires special inks and powders
costing 25 gp per die of negative energy damage to
be generated. While the maximum negative energy
damage dealt by a Black Lore spell is based on the
spell's level, the actual damage is limited by the
runebone's potency. +0 to spell level.

Born of Three Thunders [Metamagic]


You can infuse spells with the power of the
storm.
Prerequisites: Elemental Spell [Electric],
Knowledge [Nature] 4
Benefit: When you prepare (or cast, for spontaneous
casters) a spell with the electricity and/or sonic
descriptor that deals hit point damage, you can
decide for it to be a spell of Three Thunders, dealing
half electric, and half sonic damage. The spell is
accompanied by a thunderclap which leaves all
those affected who fail a Fortitude save stunned for
1 round, then knock affected targets prone on a
failed save. Casting such a spell is draining, and
automatically dazes you for 1 round after you cast
it. The spell's descriptors change so that it includes
both electric and sonic descriptors. +0 to spell
level.
Cooperative Spell [Metamagic][Teamwork]
You can team up to cast spells more effectively.
Prerequisites: Any metamagic feat
Benefit: While the two of you are adjacent, you and
another spellcaster with the Cooperative Spell feat
can simultaneously cast the same spell at the same
time in the round. Add +2 to the save DC of
cooperatively cast spells and +1 to caster level
checks to beat the target's spell resistance (if any),
using the higher base DC and level check of either
caster. For each additional caster with this feat
casting the same cooperative spell simultaneously,
the spell's save DC and the bonus on the caster level
check both increase by 1. When more than two
spellcasters cooperatively cast a spell, each must be
adjacent to at least two other casters involved in the
casting. +0 to spell level.
Extra Invocation
You learn an extra invocation
Prerequisites: Able to cast lesser invocations
Benefit: You learn a new invocation from your
normal list of an invocation at least 1 grade below
your maximum normal grade.
Special: You can take this feat multiple times,
gaining a different invocation each time.

42

Infernal Adept
You can access invocations not normally available
to your class.
Prerequisites: Special (see text)
Benefit: You learn an invocation from the list of a
different class. If you are a Dragonfire Adept, you
can select from the Warlock list or the Soulfire
Blade list. If you are a Warlock, you can select from
the Dragonfire Adept or Soulfire Blade list. If you
are a Soulfire Blade Soulknife, you may select from
the Warlock or Dragonfire Adept list. Unless you are
of the appropriate type/subtype (Dragon type or
dragonblood subtype for Dragonfire Adept,
Aberration, Outsider, Fey, native outsider or
aberrant subtype for Warlock, or psionic subtype for
Soulfire Blade invocations), you must be taught by a
creature that knows the invocation. Unless you are
able to apply them to something, you may not take
Eldritch Shape or Eldritch Essence invocations in
this way.
Insightful
You have a talent for divination
Benefit: An innate talent for magic grants you the
following spell-like abilities as a 1st-level caster. If
you are an invoker, you may instead use your
invoker level for caster level. 1/day detect magic,
detect secret doors, read magic.
Lord of the Uttercold [Metamagic]
You can merge the powers of death and ice.
Prerequisites: Elemental Spell [Cold], Knowledge
[Planes] 6, able to cast a spell with the cold
descriptor
Benefit: You can turn spells with the cold descriptor
into uttercold spells. Half the damage dealt by an
uttercold spell is cold damage, and the other half is
negative energy damage. The spell's saving throw
remains unchanged, but creatures can apply cold
resistance or immunity to cold only to the cold
portion of the damage. An undead creature can be
healed by the negative energy damage of an
uttercold spell, though if it doesn't have resistance
to cold, the effects of damage and healing may
cancel each other out. +0 to spell level.

Necropolis Born
You have been touched by the dead
Benefit: An innate talent for magic grants you the
following spell-like abilities as a 1st-level caster. If
you are an invoker, you may instead use your
invoker level for caster level. 1/daycause fear,
ghost sound, touch of fatigue. Save DC 10 + spell
level + your Cha modifier.
Metamagic School Focus
You are very skilled at using metamagic with this
school.
Prerequisites: Spell Focus or Arcane School of the
chosen school.
Benefit: Choose a school of magic for which you
have the Spell Focus feat, or the school in which you
have specialized. Three times per day, you can
reduce by one level the cost of a metamagic feat
applied to a spell of the chosen school. If you
prepare spells, you can have only up to three such
reduced cost spells prepared at any time.
Planar Adept
You are more adaptable than others with your
Invocations as a result of your heritage
Prerequisites: Outsider, Aberration, Fey, or aberrant
subtype
Benefit: When swapping invocations, you may swap
two invocations for new ones instead of one. You
are still limited by grade and list.
Practiced Spellcaster
You are especially skilled at a specific type of magic.
Prerequisites: Spellcraft 1
Benefit: Select a spellcasting or invoking class you
possess. Your caster level in that class is increased
by 4, up to your hit dice (so a Wizard 2/Fighter 3
would only have a Wizard caster level of 5, but
upon gaining another level in Fighter would
increase CL to 6). This does not advance
spells/invocations known, spells per day or
maximum invocation grade.

43

Ranged Spell Specialization


Your ranged touch spells are more dangerous.
Prerequisites: Weapon Focus (ranged spell), caster
level 4th
Benefit: Your spells and spell-like abilities which
require a ranged touch attack deal +2 damage. This
only applies to the first attack that spell makes, and
only to its first round of damage. This can only be
applied to damaging spells.
Sanctum Spell [Metamagic]
Your lair suffuses your spells with extra power.
Prerequisites: Any metamagic feat.
Benefit: A Sanctum spell is treated as 1 level higher
than normal when cast in your sanctum, and 1
lower than normal when cast outside a sanctum.
All effects are calculated from this new spell level.
Your sanctum is a particular site previously
designated by you, and no larger than 20 feet/level
in diameter. The designated area must be a site
where you have spent a cumulative period of at
least three months. Though a sanctum can be
designated within a larger structure, its special
advantages do not apply beyond the maximum
area. Once designated, it takes seven days for a site
to become a sanctum, and if you designate a new
area to be your sanctum, the benefits of the old one
immediately fade. +0 to spell level.
Soul of the North
You have a touch of ice in your soul.
Benefit: An innate talent for magic grants you the
following spell-like abilities as a 1st-level caster. If
you are an invoker, you may instead use your
invoker level for caster level. 1/day chill touch, ray
of frost, resistance. Save DC 10 + spell level + your
Cha modifier.

Spell Hand
You can intuitively manipulate object around you.
Benefit: An innate talent for magic grants you the
following spell-like abilities as a 1st-level caster. If
you are an invoker, you may instead use your
invoker level for caster level. 1/daymage hand,
open/close, Tensers floating disk. Save DC 10 +
spell level + your Cha modifier.
Touch Spell Specialization
You can strike truer with touch spells.
Prerequisites: Weapon Focus (touch spell), caster
level 4th
Benefit: As Ranged Spell Specialization, except it
applies to melee touch spells and spell-like abilities
instead.

Archetypes:

In addition to the warlock, there are a number of


other classes that can potentially harness the power
of the invocation, through Archetypes.

Soulfire Blade:
Base Class: Soulknife
Class Skills: Add Diplomacy, Spellcraft
Invoking (Ps): Soulfire Blades have mastered a
unique brand of psionics unlike any others. They
use invocations, similarly to a Warlock, with the
following differences:
They are Psi-Like abilities, not Spell-Like
abilities. As a result, instead of caster level,
these invocations have manifester levels. Any
effect based on CL instead uses ML
Your invocations thus qualify you for things
which require:
A manifester level
The ability to manifest powers of a level
up to your ML (rounded up), provided
you know at least 1 invocation of that
level or greater.
The ability to manifest powers of a given
discipline or with a given descriptor

44

The ability to manifest a specific psionic


power replicated by one of your
invocations
Ability to cast/manifest invocations of a
given level or grade, or knowledge of
specific invocations.
The save DC for a Soulfire Blade's
invocations is based off of Wisdom.
Classes that advance arcane casting do not
advances this ability. Instead, classes that
advance psionic manifesting advance both
this ability and your Mind Blade. If you take
a class that advances Psionics and Invoking
separately, you may not apply the psionic
advancement to this class. Any class that
advances invoking also advances your Mind
Blade, exactly the same as a psionicsadvancing class would.
If a power replicated by one of your
invocations allows augmentation, it is
augmented as normal for a power used as a
Psi-Like ability
Additionally, you get a small number of free Essence
invocations. You can apply eldritch essence
invocations to your mind blade similarly to a
Warlock's eldritch blast. Any class features that
improve your eldritch blast, such as the Enlightened
Spirit's special advancement, or the Planar Fire
Warlock's hellfire blast may also be applied to your
Mind Blade as appropriate.
When determining the psionic discipline to which
an invocation belongs, remember:
Clairsentience is equivalent to Divination
Metacreativity is equivalent to Conjuration
Psychokinesis is equivalent to Evocations
Psychometabolism is equivalent to
Transmutation
Conjuration (healing) effects become
Psychometabolism (healing) effects
Telepathy is equivalent to Enchantment
This replaces Psychic Strike

continued pushing each target the appropriate
distance. If a target strikes an object, they both take
damage as if they had fallen a height equal to the
distance you had pushed them. You do not need to
move in any way to bull rush the targets this way,

48

Black Mage:
Black Mages are Warlocks who attained their power
purely by study. Unlike other Warlocks, they do not
benefit from a pact of any kind, deriding it as
cheating.
Base Class: Warlock
Class Skills: Add all Knowledge[Skills]
Invoking: Invoking is largely unchanged, except that
save DCs are determined by Intelligence, as
opposed to Charisma.
Eldritch Study: Black Mages have no need for
powers from others, and instead rely on rigorous
study. They do not select a source of power, and
instead receive a set of specialized benefits:
Studious Arcana (Ex): A Black Mage can
understand arcane formulae that most
Warlocks never bother with. A Black Mage
can study a scroll containing a 1st or 2nd level
arcane spell as a Wizard adding it to his
spellbook would, and from that point may
cast that spell as a Least Invocation. Upon
gaining access to a new grade of Invocation,
he may add spells of 3rd or 4th level (Lesser
Invocation), 5th or 6th level (Greater
Invocation), or 7th to 9th level (Dark
Invocation) to his available Invocations. A
Black Mage may only know one extra
invocation of each grade this way, but can
replace these learned invocations at will.
This replaces the first Eldritch Power.
Impossible Knowledge (Ex): You are wellversed in all varieties of arcane lore, and you
can put this knowledge to great effect in
practice. You can replace Survival checks
with Knowledge[Nature] checks, Strength
checks to break an object with
Knowledge[Engineering] checks, Diplomacy
with Knowledge[Local] checks, Linguistics
checks with Knowledge[History] checks, and
Stealth and Perception with
Knowledge[Dungeoneering] checks.
Additionally, any time you make a successful
Knowledge check to identify a creature or
item, you gain a bonus equal to your class

Roll

level on attack and damage rolls against it


and on skill checks dealing with it. This
replaces the 5th level Eldritch Power
Improvisation (Sp): 3 times per day, a 5th
level Black Mage can pull an effect out of his
hat. He may reproduce the effects of any
arcane spell or any Invocation. To do so, he
must make a Spellcraft check (DC 15+the
effective level of the spell/invocation). If they
succeed, they replicate the effects of the spell,
cast at the minimum possible arcane caster
level (so, ignoring possible divine caster
levels). If you fail the Spellcraft Check, you
lose the attempt to no effect. This replaces
the 9th level Eldritch Power
Power Surge (Ex): 3 + Int times per day, a
Black Mage may create a burst of power with
his invocations. When using this ability, roll
2d6, and apply any metamagic feats
(regardless of whether you possess them)
with a total level modification up to the
value on the following table. This replaces
the 13th level Eldritch Power.

Steal Spell (Su): Once per day, you can


subvert all magic in a 60-foot area. You may
make a caster level against all ongoing
effects, as if by dispel magic. For each check
you succeed, you gain control of the
corresponding effect. Personal effects move
to you, summoned and controlled creatures
obey you, and you choose who benefits or is
harmed by any spells as applicable. You may
not change the terms of the spell(s) after the
fact, excepting for spells that specifically
allow you to do so. The caster level of each

effect is unchanged. This replaces the 17 th


level Eldritch Power.
Mastery of the Arcane (Sp): You have truly mastered
arcane power, gaining the ability to tap into the
most basic arcane forces. You can take 10 on
Spellcraft checks under any circumstance, and you
gain wish as a Dark Invocation for free.
This replaces Eldritch Transformation.
Bonus Feats: In place of the normal bonus feats a
Warlock would get, a Black Mage gains a bonus feat
from the Wizard bonus feat list, or take a Wizard
Discovery, using Warlock Level in place of Wizard
level.
This replaces the bonus feats from the
Warlock's Source of Power.
