The Summoner

by Jason Tseng

 

Overview

Summoners search the deep corners of the world and peer into the cracks that separate creation from the multitude of other realms that exist beyond our own-- the outworlds. Some summoners were born touched by magic from the outworld, forever marked by the strange alien energies from the unknowable abyss. Others began as wizards, studying ancient secrets, but stumbled upon unpronounceable names of elder beings of great power. Summoners have learned how to reach into the outworlds and summon and control the otherworldly creatures that inhabit these realms.

 

However, Summoners who reach into the outworld often attract the attention of the Eidolons. Beings of immense power and innumerable forms, the eidolons rule the outworlds. Intrigued by the prospect of the magic of our world, the Eidolons bond with the Summoners willing to accept their boons. Summoners are able to summon aspects of these great beings into our world-- taking the form of fantastical creatures. As Summoners grow in power they are able to bring more aspects of their Eidolon into our reality, allowing their eidolon companions to evolve their forms in our realm. The greatest of the Summoners can even become one with their eidolons and fight as one powerful being. But the question still persists… who is truly in control? The summoner or the eidolon?

 

Play Style: Summoners are a complex class. Between the summoner’s spoiler spells which focus on buffs, debuffs, and crowd control spells and their summoned monsters hand-to-hand combat, it’s a lot to keep track of. The eidolon talent option provides the highest amount of tactical customization. If you’d rather not focus on the mechanics, taking the master summoner leaves the customization to the luck of the dice. Demonologist and Daevologist talents are available for those wanting to play more dark or righteous characters.

 

Ability Scores:  Charisma or Intelligence are the primary traits of a Summoner. Translating alien scripts and parlaying with extra-dimensional powers are all in a day’s work of a skilled summoner. Summoners gain a +2 bonus to either Intelligence or Charisma, as long as it isn’t the same ability you increase with your +2 racial bonus.

 

Races: Summoners tend to operate on the fringes of the magical establishment. Often seen as eccentric or misguided practitioners. Some even accuse summoners of consorting with demons. Any race can be a summoner, though gnomes and elves are most often called to the study of such strange and ancient rites.

 

Backgrounds: Arcane student, Tomb raider, Court conjurer, Demon hunter, Cultist, Occult investigator, Outworld-touched, Blessed Conduit.

 

Icons: The Diabolist is most frequently linked to the Summoners due to the similar interest in creatures from beyond this world. However many Summoners receive the sponsorship of the Archmage, in spite of their unconventional means. The Elf Queen is known to keep several summoners in her retinue, particularly among her dark elf courtiers. The Summoners however are often shunned by the Crusader and the Priestess whose Gods, both light and dark, distrust the extra-planar creatures they summon.

Gear

At 1st level, unlike some of their spell-crafting associates, Summoners often are required to go into the field to search for lost tomes of forgotten names, so most summoners start off with light weapons, such as a staff or shortsword, travel clothes, books and other reference materials related to their area of expertise. Summoners who have found gainful employment or successful summoning texts start with 25 gp. Summoners who are less lucky start with 1d6 + 10 gp.

Weapons

Typical Summoners are able to defend themselves should they require, and often wade into battle alongside their Eidolon. Most Summoners start with a single-handed weapon plus light armor. If using a two handed weapon, most summoners will use a weapon that is easy to cast spells with such as a staff or spear.

*Summoners need one free hand to cast spells. It’s easy to get a hand free from a weapon you’re good with like a staff or a spear for the time it takes to cast a spell, but if you take a penalty for using a two-handed weapon, the penalty also applies to your spells.

Class Features

 

Summon Outworld Creature

As a summoner, you have learned how to call upon extra-planar creatures from the outworlds to aid you. Like a fisherman, summoning spells are like magical lures into the outworld, attempting to attract and hook the attention of outworld creatures. Because of the chaotic nature of extra-dimensional magic, Summoners must build their skills in order to increase their control of the kind of creatures pulled from across the planes.

 

You are able to summon a random monster from the Outworld once per battle, and once per day outside of battle. If you wish to use this ability again in the same battle, first make a hard save (16+). This creature acts under your command and on your turn. The creature remains on this plane for a number of minutes equal to your Cha mod + Level. This creature is always one level below you and must stay nearby you, otherwise they are returned to the Outworld. See the Baseline stats for Normal Monsters for stats (p254). This creature also receives a random special ability, roll a d20 and consult the table below. The summoner should feel free to describe the appearance of the creature based on the benefit results. Outworld creatures never appear natural or native to this world. They are typically alien and clearly extra-dimensional, often with impossible anatomies:

 

Roll

Benefit Name

Benefit

1

Battle Frenzy

on natural even hit, damage to a second nearby target for 50% of strike hit

2

Determined strike

3

Life-draining bite

on 16+ hit, the creature heals ½ of damage dealt that turn

4

Ranged attack

the creature gains a basic ranged attack with attack bonus equal to -1 of their basic melee attack, and half strike damage.

5

Tank

once per round the creature can take up to half of an attack’s damage done to a nearby ally

6

Vital Strike

on a crit, the creature does triple damage instead of double

7

Fury

when staggered the creature gets +1 to attack and +level to damage (if level 0, additional +1 to attack)

8

Artful dodger

creature takes half damage from attacks of opportunity

9

Assured victory

Upon dropping an enemy, all other enemies hit at -2 until the end of the creature’s turn.

10

Shapechange

As a standard action, the creature can appear as a humanoid. To imitate a specific person, the creature must roll a save +11. Those attempting to examine the creature must make a hard save (+16) to see past the creature’s shapechange

11

Resistance

the creature resists a damage type at +12. Roll a d8 to determine damage type: 1 - Fire; 2 - Cold; 3 - Lightning; 4 - Poison; 5 - Psychic; 6 - Thunder; 7 - Acid; 8 - Force

12

True Seeing

This creature is immune to invisibility and illusion

13

Teleportation

The creature can teleport to anywhere in sight 1d3 times per battle

14

Ferocious accuracy

Once per battle, the creature rolls 2d20 on a attack and chooses the best for each attack.

15

Ethereal Form

The creature can remove itself from play as a standard action, and reappear anywhere nearby the next turn

16

Thorny defense

Any creature who hits the creature takes 1d4/level damage

17

19

Cone of energy

20

Flight

The creature can fly. Reduce strike damage by 25%

 

You may only have one outworld creature summoned at a time. If your summoned creature drops to 0 hp, unlike the Ranger’s animal companion, it does not follow the death and dying guidelines, rather it is returned to the outworld. You may not summon an outworld creature if you have summoned an eidolon. The summoned creature is also maintained by your concentration, so if you are incapacitated either by dropping to 0 hp or otherwise incapped i.e. sleep spell, petrification, etc. Your summoned outworld creature is returned to the outworld.

 

If you use this ability while having another summoned creature under your control, you lose control of the first creature, whose first course of action is usually to attack the Summoner who brought it to this realm. You may dismiss your summoned creature and return them to the Outworlds with a quick action, but you may not summon another creature in the same round that you dismissed a creature.

  • Adventurer Feat: When determining creature benefit roll two d20s. Choose a benefit that is to your liking. If you roll two of the same result, reroll one of your d20s.

  • Champion Feat: When determining creature benefit you may add +1 or subtract -1 to that roll. If you took the Adventurer feat this applies to both d20s you roll.

  • Epic Feat: Your summoned creatures receive two benefits from this list, roll twice and take both benefits. If you took the Adventurer feat, you may roll 2 d20s each time you roll.

Class Talents

Choose three of the following

 

Blood Sacrifice

Before summoning a creature (including you eidolon), as a standard action, you may sacrifice (1d6 x Level) + Con worth of HP in order to cause the creature you summon to be equal to your level, instead of one less.

  • Adventurer feat: Add your Cha mod to your creature’s strike damage.

  • Champion feat: if you use Blood Sacrifice to summon a creature, as a quick action you may add half your level to your summoned creature’s AC, PD, or MD until the end of your next turn, once per battle

  • Epic Feat: if you use Blood Sacrifice to summon a creature, as a quick action, you may double the damage of your creature’s next attack, once per battle.

 

Daevaologist

Gain +4 to background related to Daevology. When you use Summon Outworld Creature, instead of rolling the Summon Outworld Creature random benefit table, you may roll a d6 from the random daeva ability table provided here:

  • Adventurer feat: You also can speak in the tongue of daevas. Daevas will readily parlay with humanoids speaking holy-tongue.

 

Roll

5

Judgement

Once per battle, name one enemy. Your crit range expands by +2 with that enemy.

6

Flight

Creature can fly. Reduce Strike damage by ¼

 

Demonologist

Gain +4 to background related to Demonology. When you use Summon Outworld Creature, instead of rolling the Summon Outworld Creature random benefit table, you may roll a d6 from the random demon ability table (p 209): 1 - True Seeing, 2 - Resist Fire 18+, 3 - Invisibility, 4 - Resist energy 12+, 5 - Fear aura, 6 - Teleport 1d3 times per battle

  • Adventurer feat: You also can speak in the tongue of demons. Demons who often will parlay with humanoids speaking hell-tongue.

 

Eidolon

Special: Unlike most class talents, this talent takes up two Summoner class talent slots

You have the ability to summon a normal-sized eidolon companion that fights alongside you in battle. See the Eidolon companion rules at the end of this section for information about this talent and its associated features. note: If you take this talent, you may not take the master summoner class talent.

  • Adventurer feat: Inter-locate - once per battle you may swap locations with your eidolon as a free action. This is often used before an attack by an enemy so that the eidolon is struck instead of the summoner.

  • Adventurer feat: Separation - your eidolon no longer needs to remain next to you, and can travel away from you.

  • Champion feat: Merge Forms - you and your eidolon merge forms at will, allowing the summoner to cast spells from within the Eidolon. You pool your HP with your Eidolon.

  • Champion feat: Outworlder transfer - You may transfer one Eidolon evolution benefit to yourself.

  • Epic feat: Twin Eidolons - Once per day, you may gain an identical form to that of your eidolon for the duration of a battle.

 

Empowered Summons

Creatures you summon, including eidolons, get +1 to their basic attack rolls.

  • Adventurer feat: creatures also get +1 to AC

  • Champion feat: creatures now get +2 to AC and +1 to PD and MD

  • Epic feat: On a 16+ hit, creatures may make a second attack at a -2 penalty.

 

Master Summoner

Special: If you take this talent, you may not take the Eidolon class talent

You have forsaken the temptation of the eidolons, but instead have focused on summoning the smaller yet no less deadly denizens of the Outworlds. Creatures you summon with the Summon Outworld Creature ability remain on our plane until they drop to 0 HP or are dismissed. You can still only use this ability once per battle, and once per day outside of combat.  And you still may only have one creature summoned at a time.

 

You also gain the ability to discover a outworld creature’s true name. You immediately know if an engaged enemy’s monster type is Outworlder. To discover a creature’s true name, make a hard ability check (adventurer 20, champion 25, epic 30) with a relevant background. With its true name, you may expand your crit range with the enemy by two, you gain a +2 bonus to your attack rolls against that enemy, and finally, you can banish a staggered outworld enemy back to its home plane by making a  Level + Cha vs MD roll.

  • Adventurer feat: Instead of a normal strength monster, you may summon 5 mook monsters of one level less than yours. They still act on your initiative and are identical to each other.

  • Champion feat: When using the Summon Outworld Creature, instead of rolling to determine a random benefit, you may choose to use the same benefit as the last time you used this skill.

  • Epic Feat: Once per day, you may summon a Huge or double damage monster.

 

Soul Bond

When you use Summon Outworld Creature, you may choose to forge a soul bond with the creature. As long as the creature is summoned, you also gain the random benefit the creature has. However, all damage that the creature receives, it splits with you, and vice versa. If the creature drops to 0 HP while summoned, you are weakened until the end of your next turn.

  • Adventurer feat: Once per battle, as a free action you may swap a defense (AC, PD, or MD) with your summoned creature. This lasts until the end of your next turn.

  • Champion feat: If your soul bound creature drops to 0 HP while summoned, you are only dazed, not weakened.

  • Epic feat: Once per battle, when you or your summon must make a save to end an effect, roll twice and take the better of the two rolls.

Eidolon Companion Rules

Add two recoveries to your total recoveries. Your eidolon is always one level less than you. Your Eidolon always acts on your turn. You can decide who acts first. The summoners bring certain aspects of the otherworldly eidolon into our world, and are able to choose what aspects to pull through the veil. Eidolons have a number of evolution points which can be spent to purchase benefits described in the Evolutions table. Summoning your eidolon takes a number of minutes per level, and is normally done out of battle. If you need to summon your eidolon during battle, you must take two uninterrupted full actions to do so.

 

You may dismiss your eidolon as a quick action, and when you summon it again it retains the number of HP it had before it was dismissed. If you eidolon drops to 0 HP, it returns to the outworlds. In order to summon it again, make a hard save +16. If you fail then you must wait until the next day or after the next encounter, whichever is sooner, to summon your eidolon. When it is summoned, it has half HP.

 

Soul Link

You and your eidolon share a powerful magical connection that allows your to communicate to each other across any distance, even across dimensions. This communication is considered a free action, but when distracted or concentrating on other things, communication can be reduced from words to mere images, sounds, or other senses.

 

Similar to true magic items and their quirks, the eidolons have their own personalities which rub off on you. Confer with the GM to determine your eidolon’s “quirk.” The more powerful your soul link becomes, the more pronounced this “quirk.”

 

This connection also causes both and your eidolon to share magic item chakras. i.e. if you wear a magic ring, your eidolon can only wear one additional ring. If you carry a true magic staff, your eidolon may not carry a true magic sword. Eidolons using weapons, magic or otherwise, do not change their damage dice. But if they use a true magic item, they gain the benefits of that item.

 

Similar to the Ranger’s Animal companion, when you spend a recovery to heal, your eidolon heals the same amount. However, if someone heals your eidolon, it spends a recovery from your pool and heals, but you do not gain HP.

 

Share Spells

You may cast a spell with a target of “you” on your eidolon as a close quarters spell. You can cast these spells on your eidolon even if they would not normally affect creatures type. However, spells cast this way can only come from the Summoner spell list.

  • Champion feat: Shared spells now may come from any spell list, not just the Summoner one, and may be cast by any of your allies.

  • Epic feat: Spells that are shared now affect both you and your Eidolon

 

Transmogrify

Once per full heal up, you may rearrange the evolution points spent by your eidolon to gain different benefits. This can only be done out of combat and usually takes about an hour to cast.

  • Adventurer feat: You may use transmogrify in combat as a full action, but afterward you are weakened until the end of your next turn.

After casting this spell, the next time an enemy uses a ranged attack against you of any damage types except  thunder or psychic, you may use this spell as a free action to redirect their spell or ranged attack back at the attacker. Make a normal save (11+) and add your Level to your roll. If you fail the save, you are affected as normal by the ranged attack and the Mirror of inversion is expended.

The swarm has no AC, so all strikes against it automatically succeed, however the swarm has resist weapons +12.

You create a swirling gravity singularity which draws enemies towards it. Enemies caught up in its pull get sucked into the singularity, taking force damage. The more enemies sucked in, the more damaging the singularity. At the end of your turn, the singularity is released and all targets sucked in are exploded outward. Allies engaged with targeted enemies must make a normal save (11+) to evade, otherwise are also affected by this spell, though take half damage.

Level 7: 1d8 + Cha force damage per enemy hit

Circle of Enfeeblement

Quick Action to cast

  • Epic feat: Attacks against the chosen defense also have their crit range expanded by 2.

 

Planar Transposition

Daily

Full Action to cast

Effect: For the rest of the battle you transpose a portion of the Outworlds onto our reality. You choose narratively how this portion of the outworlds looks (rocky, icy, hot, jungle, etc.). The area of the transposed reality is roughly equivalent to the bounds of the battle area (within reason). You are the temporary master of this plane and the very environment responds to your whim. While within transposed reality, your allies can make stunts as the environment subtly shifts towards your advantage. At the discretion of the GM, combat advantages of +2 may be given for appropriate stunts. It is also easier to summon creatures from the outworld here, so you may use Summon Outworld Creature ability as a quick action instead of a standard action. All other rules still apply.

 

When cast outside of battle this spell is as a ritual, even if you do not have the requisite feat. The spell takes one hour per level to cast and the transposition lasts a number of days equal to your level. You may also add one of the following features:

  • Bountiful - This plane has a thriving natural ecology with streams, ponds, etc. and provides enough plant-based food (fruit, vegetables, grains, fungi) to support one Normal sized creature per Level. Feel free to make these foods as alien and strange as you like.

  • Elemental - This plane gains traits related to airy, firey, watery or earthy environments. Elementals thrive here. Creatures summoned in this environment gain +1d4/Level corresponding energy damage

  • Gravity - By default a plane’s gravity is normal and oriented in one direction, like what most creatures are used to on the Material Plane. By selecting this feature, the plane’s gravity is heavy, light, none, objectively directional, or subjectively directional.

  • Structure - Your demiplane has a specific, linked physical structure, such as a giant tree, floating castle, labyrinth, mountain, and so on. (This option exists so you can pick a theme for your plane without having to worry about the small details of determining what spells you need for every hill, hole, wall, floor, and corner).

 

Level 9

 

Dimension Gate

Daily

You can open a gate to another plane. The gate stays open for as long as you concentrate on it. If you have an arcane connection to a being (such as a favored tool, a vile of blood, or a true name) you may call this being through the gate. The Gate opens up in their vicinity and they are made aware of your call, but they are not obliged to step through. You may also open a gate from the Outworld to our reality, and similarly call a being (such as an icon) if you have an arcane connection. However you may only do this from the Outworld, and since you can only cast Gate once per day, you must at least spend some time in the Outworlds to do so, which has it’s own perils.

  • Epic feat: You can recharge +16 after using Dimension gate.

 

Reality Nexus

Daily

Effect: You become a crossroads between the Outworlds and our world. While in this state, you may use Summon Outworld creature at-will and you may summon and control as many creatures at a time equal to your level, including your eidolon (for simplicity’s sake, they all act on your turn and you roll one attack die for them all, and they all have the same benefit, though they may cosmetically appear unique). However, you also become helpless and unable to use any other abilities in this state. It becomes obvious to all enemies, that you should be the prime target. When you drop to half staggered HP, the spell ends, and any monsters summoned except one of your choosing are dismissed.

  • Epic feat: While in this state you gain resistance to all energy +16
