Class Skills

(4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level) Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Knowledge (Arcana, Nature, Planes) (Int), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), and Spellcraft (Int).

Class Features

Armor and Weapon Proficiency: Summoners are only proficient with simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor of any type interferes with a summoners gestures, which can cause his spells with somatic components to fail.

Aid Summoned Creature: A Summoner of 4th level may take the Aid Another action as a free action once per round, but only to assist a creature they have summoned.

Advanced Learning: At 3rd level and every six levels afterwards, the Summoner may permanently add two spell to her spell list. This spell must be of a level she can already cast, and it must be of the Conjuration school. Only spells from the Cleric, Druid, or Wizard spell list may be added in this way.

Aura of the Outsider: A Summoner’s strong connection to the outer planes causes them to have the aura of an outsider themselves. For purposes of detect spells, their HD is = to an outsider of their same alignment.

This bond with the outer planes also gives her summons another 10 minutes duration per/caster level. Summoned creatures also get a bonus to hp’s and attacks. These bonuses increase as the Summoner raises level.

Rapid Summoning: A Summoner can cast summoning spells in less time than most other casters. Any Conjuration spell of the Summoning subschool that a Summoner casts that would have a casting time of one full round have a casting time of 1 standard action instead.

Sudden Extend: At 7th level, the Summoner gains Sudden Extend as a bonus feat. If she already has Sudden Extend, she may gain any metamagic feat that she qualifies for instead.

Summon Ally (Sp): Once per week a Summoner with this ability can teleport a willing creature from any location (that is not constricted by anti-teleportation or other dimensional lock) to their side. At 10th level they can summon one creature, at 15th level they can summon two creatures, and at 20th level they can summon 3 creatures. This ability is a full round action.

Summon Cohort: Once per day when a Summoner casts a Conjuration spell of the Summoning subschool, she may extend its duration to 24 hours. A summoner may only have 1 summoned cohort at a time.

Summon Outsider (Sp): At 6th level, once per week, a Summoner can attempt to summon outsiders with an alignment identical to her own, of an equal ECL, with a 50% chance of success. Summoning a creature of a different alignment reduces the chance by half.

Summoning a creature with a lower ECL increases the chances of success by 5% for every level the level of the Summoner class exceeds the ECL of the target. Summoning a creature of a higher level reduces the chance of success by 10% for every Summoner level below the target’s ECL.

At 12th level they can summon up to two creatures, and at 18th level they can summon up to three. But a separate percentile roll is required for each one. Creatures summoned by this ability can only remain for 1 hour per Summoner class level. This ability is a full round action.

Improved Summon Outsider (Sp): At 18th level, the Summoner’s chances to summon outsiders increases by 40%.

The WarSlinger is good at the sling and ranged combat; They are also adept at controlling the battle field. Where Sorcerers may throw fireballs, the WarSlinger throws bullets that explode, vials full of acid, and makes shots around corners; They also are enlisted to send messages between groups hundreds of yards away. A WarSlinger truly shines when commanding a formation of other slingers, their effectiveness is increased under his direction and skill.

It’s not uncommon for Peasants, Shepards, Halfings and *NPC*’s to have some levels of WarSlinger.

Weapon Focus: Slings give a +1 to hit.

Sling Anything: Not satisfied with only slinging rocks, bullets, or other things. If it fits in the pouch and is round or oval shaped, it can be slung. Flasks, bags, mud balls, flaming tar as a few examples.

Exploding Bullets: As a swift action a single projectile (enchanted or otherwise) can be set to explode causing splash damage of 1/2, with all effects from the bullet affecting all targets. Afterwards the projectile/ammo cannot be recovered. Extends splash damage to 5 feet.

AC vs ranged: A WarSlinger’s AC increases adding his WarSlinger class levels, but only against ranged attacks.

Increased Range: Ranges of all slings increase by 20ft for Long/Short/staff slings and 100ft for War/Long Slings.

Catch/Return Bullet: Once per round if a projectile is thrown and misses the WarSlinger (due to increased AC vs ranged) the WarSlinger can catch the bullet in mid-flight in his sling, redirect and fire it at the original attacker as an AOO.

Bestow Quick Reload: Other Slingers within 50ft get the benefit of Quick Reload as though they had the feat/ability.

Auto Feign: With small bullets (iron or lead) the bullets can’t be perceived while in flight, so targets beyond 30ft don’t get their Dex bonus against the WarSlinger and are considered flatfooted.

Improved Range sunder: While Sundering the target’s hardness is treated as having 10 less.

ManyShot: Load a second bullet and get a second attack at the same bonus as your first attack. (Same as ManyShot feat)
