Cogblessed Maker[edit]

I will get that needlemus!
—Korbotnik, Human Cogblessed Maker

The art of building constructs is difficult to practice, very few spellcasters are even able to build the smallest, meekest automaton. Those who die usually do so on the side, making construct is a long an expansive process that consume quite a lot of resources. The Cogblessed makers are however those who turned this side practice in an obsession, creating constructs after constructs after constructs. They are the wizards with armies of constructs, walking prototypes, flying fortress staffed by automated minions.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Cogblessed Maker.

Spellcasting: At each level after the 1st, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a cogblessed shaper, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Cogblessed Advancement (Ex): Levels in Cogblessed stack with level in one previous class you possessed to determine the effectiveness of level-based abilities (such as sneak attack, bardic music, pathfinder sorcerer's bloodline) and any improvement for such abilities, with the exception of spellcasting (which is covered above) and bonus feats.

This feature improve for both codex roboticist and constructor, counting half of their cogblessed maker level and adding them to it previous class level for the purpose of gaining new class features. Both still get the normal benefits of cogblessed advancement as well. This only apply if you have one or more level in either classes.

Construct Specialization (Ex): A 1st level cogblessed shape choose between golem, bots and effigies. She gain a further 20% reduction on gold and XP cost as well as crafting time when making construct of the chosen category.

Technological Knowledge: A 1st level esoteric maker gain her class level as a bonus on knowledge (arcana). knowledge (engineering) and program.

If the Cogblessed Maker possess Use Mechanical Device class feature, this bonus also apply to it.

We Can Rebuild It!: A 2nd level cogblessed maker can repair any construct she herself created from destruction, as long as the body is mostly intact. Doing so require 1 hour of work per HD of the construct and 1/50th of it creation price in component.

Machine Lord (Su): A 3rd level cogblessed maker can operate machinery by voice as if it was obeying her. She no longer need any free hands to operate any kind of mechanical device (she might still need he hands to pick it up however).

Prototype (Ex): A 4th level cogblessed maker can make any construct she make a special prototype. A prototype construct gain up to two of the following trait:

  • The prototype has both a feat and a flaw, it must be able able to benefit from the feat and be penalized by the flaw.
  • At the start of each combat a prototype construct has 50% chance of being hasted and 50% of being slowed for the encounter. (if both happen they cancel each others)
  • The prototype has maximum hit point per hit dice and gain hit point as a construct one size category larger, however all it speed are halves (rounded down, to a minimum of 5 feet).
  • The prototype has an intelligence score of 1, it possess feat and skills as an intelligent creature but it must only select low feats. At any given order the prototype has a 5% chance of doing the exact opposite.
  • One of the prototype's special attack that is usable at will deal 25% more damage than normal, but require 5 rounds of recharge between uses. This ability is chosen upon creature.
  • The prototype fully benefits from positive energy healing and is dealt damage by negative energy.

Construct Obedience (Ex): A 5th level cogblessed maker is always under the effect of sanctuary against mindless construct, it break as normal but only to the construct she attacked.

Additionally any golem or construct she make that normally have a berserk chance do not.

Machine Overlord (Su): A 6th level cogblessed maker can animate object as a free action once per round with caster level equal to her character level. This is only usable on objects with moving parts. Additionally any construct she make gain one of the following benefit (chosen when the construct is built):

  • +4 enhancement bonus to strength.
  • +10 enhancement bonus to all speeds.
  • Apply half of it natural armor to it touch AC.
  • Gain a single feat it meet the prerequisites.
