Weapons and Armor Proficiencies: A Pactsurger is proficient with all simple weapons

Spells:
A pactsurger casts arcane spells which are drawn primarily from the Arcanist/Pactsurger spell list. He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time, the way a arcanist or a divine vessel must (see below).

To learn or cast a spell, a sorcerer must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a sorcererís spell is 10 + the spell level + the pactsurgerís Charisma modifier.

Like other spellcasters, a pactsurger can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is given on the table. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Charisma score.

A sorcererís selection of spells is extremely limited. A sorcerer begins play knowing two 1st-level channel spells of your choice. At each new pactsurger level, he gains one or more new spells, as indicated on the table. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a pactsurger knows is not affected by his Charisma score; the numbers on the table are fixed.) These new spells can be chosen from the arcanist/pactsurger spell list, or they can be unusual spells that the sorcerer has gained some understanding of by study. The sorcerer canít use this method of spell acquisition to learn spells at a faster rate, however.

Pact(Su):
Tapping into the outer forces, the Pactsurger sends out a call for aid.

Beginning at 1st level, a pactsurger may create a pact with a creature from the list below. The pactsurger must share at least one part of his alignment with the pact creature.

A pact grants certain bonuses as long as it is being maintained, with penalties being issued if it is broken without consent.
A pact can be threatened to break when a pactsurger takes enough damage in one attack to bring him over his Pact Threshold. A pactsurger's pact threshold is equal to his total pactsurger levels multiplied by his charisma modifier to a minimum of 1. When a pact is threatened, a pactsurger must make a Will Save equal to 10+damage over threshold or the pact is broken and the pactsurger takes the appropriate penalty. A pactsurger may restore the pact by meditating for 1 hour and negogiating with the pact creature again.
A pact creature can channel for the pactsurger to a maximum of 1/2 of the Pactsurger's class levels. He may either use the energies now or let pact creature hold them until later, to a maximum of 24 hours. All the channeling energies from one pact may only be spent on a single spell at a time.

At 6th, 11th, and 16th level, a pactsurger may call one additional pact or instead enhance one of his existing pacts. If a pactsurger has more than one pact, he may have each one channel for a different spell, but his threshold is split between all of them. If he chooses to instead enhance an existing pact, he gains additional abilities based upon the pact being enhanced as well as treating his Charisma as 2 points higher when determining his threshold for that pact. A pact may be enhanced multiple times, gaining more abilities and stacking the threshold increase.

Threshold DR (Su): Any amount of damage taken over the pact threshold is decreased by an amount equal to the threshold DR.
Life Pact(Su): When taking damage, you may pay either hit points, constitution, or charisma to reduce the damage over your threshold, up to a maximum of 3 payments per attack. Paying Constitution or Charisma is temporary ability damage that heals naturally. Higher ranks reduce more damage per payment.

Amount Reduced
{table=header]Payment|I|II|III|IV
1 Constitution|10|15|20|25
1d6 Hit Points|1|2|3|4
1 Charisma|5|10|15|20 [/table]

Unshaken(Su): When taking damage over your threshold, you may take an immediate action to ignore all damage over your threshold. Doing so renders you unable to move from your spot, but may otherwise act normally.

Pact Broken Penalties
{table=head]Pact Creature|Penalty

If the pactsurger is unable to pay the penalty, he may instead substitute the payment with the permanent loss of either 2 points of Constitution or 2 points of Charisma. If he is still unable to pay, he loses the ability to make pacts until he can pay off the penalty from the previous pact.

Pact Surge (Su): At 4th level, the pactsurger gains the use of special attacks determined by his available pacts, once per day as a standard action. At 8th level an every 4 levels after that, the pactsurger gains an additional use per day. A pactsurger may expend more than one use per day on a single attack to strengthen it.

Renewal (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=135499)

Edit: Forgot I didn't post the magic system yet and it's sort of needed, but the gist is that regular magic has been rendered extinct so wizards, clerics, etc. are gone. A new magic known as channeling has come to replace it. Te pactsurger is intended to be the sorcerer replacement.

Generally, a spell can be channeled for 1-9 rounds with escalating effects. For the spell to be safely cast, it should be channeled for the 1 round per spell level. It can be underchanneled, but harms the channeler. Overchanneling makes the spell more powerful, but may harm the channeler. A channeler can only channel spells up to a maximum number of rounds equal to the highest spell level they can currently cast.
