Ravaged By Graz'ztEdit
Those that Graz'zt chooses to ravage are typically his admirers or bed partners that he sees as particularly noteworthy and powerful - for one reason or another. His ravage is also often bestowed as a means of espionage, both by him and by other ravaged.
Making a Ravaged By Graz'ztEdit
Ravaged by Graz'zt make effective spies and assassins, but also learn considerable secrets from their nightly adventures.
Abilities: Charisma is an important ability score for this class, as many of its abilities depend on it. A high Dexterity and Constitution aren't amiss either.
Races: Only outsiders can become ravaged by Graz'zt.
Alignment: Only chaotic evil creatures can become ravaged by Graz'zt.
|Saving Throws||Special||Spellcasting or Bonus Feat|
|1st||+1||+2||+2||+2||Abyssal power, perfect darksight, scion of shadow||+1 spellcasting level/bonus feat|
|2nd||+2||+3||+3||+3||+2 Charisma, concealed by shadow, ravage form||+1 spellcasting level/bonus feat|
Class Skills (8 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the ravaged by Graz'zt.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Ravaged by Graz'zt become proficient in daggers. They gain no additional armour or shield proficiencies.
Spellcasting or Bonus Feat: When a ravaged by Graz'zt gains their first class level, they can choose to either advance spellcasting or not to. If they choose to advance spellcasting, gaining a level in ravaged by Graz'zt counts as gaining a level in their previous class for the purposes of spells known and spells per day. If they had multiple classes capable of casting spells, they choose which one is advanced in this manner.
If they choose not to advance spellcasting, they gain a bonus feat at each level of ravaged by Graz'zt. They must meet all the prerequisites for a feat to take it. Once this choice is made, it cannot be changed, and remains constant no matter how many levels of ravaged by Graz'zt are taken.
Abyssal Power (Su): The mighty power of the Abyss flows through a ravaged by Graz'zt. If they have any spell-like abilities or spells, their caster level always equals their character level (or CR), and any DCs for these spells or spell-like abilities is worked out as if it were a supernatural ability (10 + 1/2 the ravaged by Graz'zt's character level or CR + the appropriate ability score modifier).
Perfect Darksight: Ravaged by Graz'zt can see through darkness of any sort, even if it is magical in nature, as if under normal daylight.
Scion of Shadow: A ravaged by Graz'zt gains a close connection to the powers of shadow. This has different effects depending on whether the ravaged by Graz'zt is a spellcaster or not.
If the ravaged by Graz'zt is not a spellcaster, they gain the following spell-like abilities at the designated character level (or CR), each useable once per day. If their character level or CR exceeds the minimum character level or CR of the spell-like ability by 2 or 3, then they may use that ability 3/day instead, and if it exceeds the minimum character level or CR of the spell-like ability by 4 or more, they may use it at-will. These abilities have Charisma-based DCs and a caster level equal to the ravaged by Graz'zt's character level (or CR).
|Minimum Character Level||Spell-Like Ability Gained||Equivalent Spell Level|
|9||Power word blind||5th|
|13||Greater shadow conjuration||7th|
|15||Greater shadow evocation||8th|
If the ravaged by Graz'zt is a spellcaster, they add all of the above spells to their class list, and learn them when they reach the marked character level (or CR). They cast them as they would normally cast spells from their class. If the ravaged by Abaddon had multiple spellcasting classes, apply this to all of them.
Concealed By Shadow (Su): A 2nd level ravaged by Graz'zt is constantly shrouded in shadows, giving attacks against them a 20% miss chance (similar to the blur spell). See invisibility does not bypass this, but true seeing will.
Ravage Form (Sp): As a full-round action, a 2nd level ravaged by Graz'zt may bestow Graz'zt's ravage on a creature eligible to gain a level. That creature gains its first level in the ravaged by Graz'zt racial paragon class. If the ravaged by Graz'zt attempts to ravage an unwilling creature, it receives a Will save to resist (Charisma-based DC).
Ex-Ravaged By Graz'ztEdit
Graz'zt is relatively permissive with his ravaged, knowing that in practical terms, he has all the control over them he needs. However, those of his ravaged who cease to be chaotic evil lose access to any spells, spell-like abilities and supernatural abilities from this class, and cannot continue to advance in it. They may atone if they want to continue advancing and get their powers back (and Graz'zt will likely permit it).
