Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the godseer.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A godseer is proficient with all martial and simple weapons but not in any armor or shields.

Spells: A godseer is a divine spellcaster much like a cleric, however she is not restricted by her alignment when casting her spells. A godseer is a spontaneous spellcaster and does not prepare her spells ahead of time. Unlike a sorcerer she does not need to know a spell beforehand, instead she can cast directly from her spell list. However, she does possess domains like a cleric, and may cast any of her domain spells in her domain spell slot but not in others. The godseer uses her Wisdom to determine the DCs of her spells, the amount of additional spell slots she gains from a high ability score and the highest level spells she can cast. A godseer cast their spells from the following list:

0—Detect alignment, detect magic, know direction, read magic.

1st—Astral fugue, analyze object, augury, comprehend languages, detect thoughts, guidance, identify, identify symbol, object insight, true dodge, true strike.

2nd—Clairaudience/clairvoyance, confusion, divine insightSpC, find traps, locate object, locate portal, séance, see invisibility, see through fog, status, reveal doom, tongues.

3rd—Analyze event, arcane eye, arcane sight, detect survivors, discern lies, divination, lesser telepathic bond, locate creature, scrying.

4th—Analyze teleportation, commune, commune with nature, contact other plane, curse of misfortune, dangerous divination, greater clairaudience/clairvoyance, greater status, probe thoughts, prying eyes, telepathic bond.

5th—Analyze dweomer, brain spider, find the path, insanity, minimal effort, stone tell, true seeing.

6th—Discern location, eye of the gods, foresight, greater arcane sight, greater scrying, greater prying eyes, moment of prescience, time stop, vision.

A Godseer's spellcasting cannot benefit from the Ascended Progression feat and cannot be made into scrolls or consumable items as is. She may still craft magic consumables with the spells on her spell list, but they are treated as of the same level as they are found on either the Cleric, Druid or Wizard spell list. In addition, for the purpose of [Reserve] feats, she may treat her spells as either the level they appears on the godseer list, the Sorcerer/Wizard or Cleric spell list whenever beneficial.

Battle Prediction (Su): As a swift action, a godseer can grant herself or a single ally within close range her battle prediction bonus as an insight bonus to attack roll, damage roll and AC for 1 round.

Domains: A godseer chooses two domains granted by her Vision. She may also always choose the Oracle domainSpC even if her Vision does not grant it.

Godly Vision: Upon entering the class, the godseer receives a specific vision from the gods. Once chosen, it cannot be changed, as it dictates what revelations and domains are available to her as well as her Prophetic Epiphany. A godseer chooses her Vision from the following list: Godseer (3.5e Class)/Visions
