Thaumaturge[edit]

Some people are born with an innate connection to specific areas of magic. How this happens is unknown, but those people, reinforced by their belief and rigorous training, are able to wield their chosen "paths" with extreme skill. These people are called thaumaturges. Unburdened by spellbooks and limited only by their chosen paths, thaumaturges can outlast any other spellcaster, but with a lesser amount of spells known.

Making a Thaumaturge[edit]

A thaumaturge's role depends on their path decisions, and they can act as a variety of roles. While they do not work well on the frontlines, a thaumaturge can lay waste with deadly area of effect spells or support their allies from afar, either specializing in a single role or taking a broader approach.

Thaumaturges work well with melee combatants who keep them away from danger, and recognize the usefulness of all classes due to their limited selection of Paths.

Abilities: While Charisma is by far the most important ability score for the thaumaturge, not only setting their DCs but also the number of Path Abilities they can have readied at any one time, many thaumaturges also benefit greatly from a high Constitution and Dexterity due to their innate frailty and need to stay fairly close to the front line in order to use their abilities.

Races: Any. Thaumaturges are found among all races, but their purpose varies of reasons. Where elves use magic as a fine art, dwarven thaumaturges focus more on practical problems and aiding their fellow soldiers in battle, whereas gnomes utilize their innate magical abilities to work subtle magic, preferring illusions over brute force.

Alignment: Any. Thaumaturges do not follow any alignment in particular - the pursuit for magic can be observed in all alignments. However, some thaumaturges prefer to be Neutral, distancing themselves from moral quandaries to further focus on their studies. A thaumaturge's alignment may affect their path choices - evil thaumaturges might prefer offensive debilitating paths, while good thaumaturges take paths that aid their allies. However, any thaumaturge can pick any path. Some even take opposing paths, such as both the Frost and Flame paths, leading an almost schizophrenic lifestyle on the border of sanity, tying their abilities to equal-yet-opposing forces.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Thaumaturge.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Thaumaturges are proficient with all simple weapons, and are not proficient with either armor or shields.

Path Rating: All thaumaturges have a path rating which dictates how strong some of their path abilities are. The path rating is equal to their class levels in thaumaturge, plus one for every two levels levels they have in a non-thaumaturge class (see "Thaumaturges and Prestige Classes" below).

Paths: At first level, the thaumaturge chooses two paths, and a third at second level.

Spells and psionic abilities gained (called Path Abilities) are treated as spell-like abilities, except for the following exceptions:

  • Path Abilities have a DC equal to 10 + your Charisma modifier + the Path Ability's level (the tier at which it can be taken), even if it would be higher through the use of augmentation for psi-like abilities.
  • Path Abilities have both verbal and somatic components (and thus are affected by arcane spell failure, except with armor with which they are proficient).
  • Path Abilities have a caster level (or manifester level in the case of psi-like abilities) equal to the thaumaturge's Path Rating.
  • Path Abilities that mimic spells that have an expensive material component must still expend that component.
  • After using a Path Ability with a duration of rounds/level or less, after it ends you must wait an equal duration before using it again on the same target.
  • If you have an instance of a Path Ability in effect, the first instance of the Path Ability ends should you cast the same Path Ability.
  • Feats that affect spell-like abilities a number of times per day such as quicken spell-like ability treat all Path Abilities as a single spell-like. Thus, if a creature took empower spell-like ability and chose Path Abilities as their spell-like ability for that feat, they would be able to empower any Path Abilities cast, but only up to three times per day. If a feat affects a spell-like ability permanently, a specific Path Ability must be chosen (though this may be re-chosen if that Path Ability is switched with another.

At first level a thaumaturge knows 4 different Path Abilities chosen from the paths he picked, and gains more according to the table above (which lists the total number known). A thaumaturge can ready a number Path Abilities up to the amount noted in the "Path Abilities Readied" column plus one-half of his Charisma modifier (rounded up), chosen from his Path Abilities known (up to a max equal to his Path Abilities known), but none more than once. A thaumaturge may cast any of the Path Abilities they have readied once before they are expended, and cannot be used again until regained. By spending five minutes of uninterrupted concentration, meditation, or prayer, the thaumaturge may change their currently readied Path Abilities with any others on their list of known Path Abilities. If one of your readied Path Abilities is switched out while still in effect, its effect immediately ends. A single Path Ability may be readied at most once.

A thaumaturge may regain all of their readied Path Abilities by taking a swift action followed immediately by a standard action which can be a simple meditation to a mighty flair of the wrist. At the thaumaturge's option, they may also cast an eldritch bolt of power when regaining their Path Abilities which is a ranged touch attack with a medium range that deals 1d6 damage for every two character levels the thaumaturge possesses (minimum 1d6). Using the bolt counts as a Path Ability.

Switch: Starting second level and every even level afterwards, the thaumaturge may remove one ability from his current Path Abilities Known list and replace it with any other Path Ability which he would be eligible to learn, though the new Path Ability need not be of the same level or even in the same path.

Thaumaturges and Prestige Classes[edit]

Thaumaturges benefit in a specific way from prestige classes that have "+1 level of existing arcane spellcasting class", "+1 level of existing divine spellcasting class", "+1 level of existing spellcasting class" or "+1 level of existing manifesting class" as a level advancement benefit. A thaumaturge taking levels in such a prestige class does not any special abilities granted by paths they gain, extra path abilities readied, or the ability to switch out path abilities for new ones. Levels of prestige classes that provide +1 level of spellcasting or manifesting effectively (though only once per level) count as class levels in Thaumaturge to determine what level of Path Abilities he's unlocked, increased Path Rating, and more Path Abilities known.

A thaumaturge can qualify for prestige classes with spellcasting level or manifesting level requirements, treating his highest level of Path Abilities unlocked as his spellcasting or manifesting level (for example, level 4 spells for a level 13 thaumaturge). The same goes for prestige classes with caster level requirements, which treat the thaumaturge's caster level as the requirement. If there is a requirement for a specific spell known, the thaumaturge can qualify for that prestige class only if they have that spell known as a Path Ability.
