Auras (Su or Sp, see text): An auramancer's art is that of enchanting allies or enemies. He can learn to produce different effects, or auras, over the course of his career. The auramancer may project one aura at a time.

Projecting an aura is a swift action. The aura remains in effect until the auramancer uses a free action to dismiss it or activates another aura of the same kind (major or minor). an auramancer can have an aura active continually; thus, an aura can be in effect at the start of a combat encounter even before the auramancer takes his first turn.

Each auras has two parts, a passive and an activated ability. When an aura is in effect, the passive ability is applied to each target in range, and at any time as a standard action (unless otherwise noted), the auramancer may use the activated ability as a spell-like ability.


At level one, an auramancer may expend each least aura he has learned once per day.

At level 5, the auramancer's ability to refresh his auras improves, allowing him to expend each least aura once per encounter, and his newly-learned lesser auras once per day each.

At level 10, the auramancer's auras improve again, and he may expend least auras once every 1d4 rounds, lesser auras once per encounter, and greater auras once per day.

At level 15, the auramancer is a master of his craft, and may expend least auras at will, lesser auras once every 1d4 rounds, greater auras once per encounter, and master auras once per day.

An auramancer is entitled to a Concentration check to successfully activate an aura if he is hit by an attack while activating, just as a spellcaster would be. an auramancer can choose to activate an aura's activated ability defensively, by making a successful Concentration check, to avoid provoking attacks of opportunity. an auramancer’s auras are subject to spell resistance unless an aura’s description specifically states otherwise. an auramancer’s caster level with his auras is equal to his auramancer level.

The save DC for an aura (if it allows a save) is 10 + equivalent spell level + the auramancer’s Charisma modifier. Since spell-like abilities are not actually spells, an auramancer cannot benefit from the Spell Focus feat. He can, however, benefit from the Ability Focus feat (see page 303 of the Monster Manual), as well as from feats that emulate metamagic effects for spell-like abilities, such as Quicken Spell-Like Ability and Empower Spell-Like Ability (see pages 303 and 304 of the Monster Manual), but such feats only apply to the activated ability.

Unless otherwise noted, an auramancer's aura affects all targets within 30 feet (including himself) that are within line of effect. Unlike other supernatural abilities, an aura can be dispelled. If an aura is dispelled, it is put on cooldown as if its activated ability had been used.

The four grades of auras, in order of their relative power, are least, lesser, greater, and master. an auramancer begins with knowledge of two auras, which must be of the lowest grade (least) and of his primary color. As an auramancer gains levels, he learns new auras, as summarized on the class Table. A list of available auras can be found following this class description.

At any level when an auramancer learns a new aura, he can also replace an auras he already knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade. At 5th level, an auramancer can replace a least auras he knows with a different least auras (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be either least or lesser). At 10th level, an auramancer can replace a least or lesser auras he knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be least, lesser, or greater). At 15th level, an auramancer can replace a least, lesser, or greater auras he knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be least, lesser, greater, or master).

Bonus Feat: At second level, and every eight levels afterwords an auramancer receives a bonus feat. The feat must be based on a color you have chosen as your primary, secondary, or tertiary color. In addition the the list below, an auramancer may take the Ability Focus feat or the Skill Focus feat for any of the skills their primary color has granted them.

Black: Deceitful, Fade into Violence, Imperious Command, Death Blow, Evil Devotion, Stealthy.
Blue: Combat Expertise, Dodge, Iron Will, Magical Aptitude, Master of Knowledge, Trickery Devotion.
Green: Animal Affinity, Endurance, Great Fortitude, Improved Unarmed Strike, Plant Devotion, Power Attack.
Red: Acrobatic, Chaos Devotion, Improved Initiative, Lightning Reflexes, Empower Spell-Like Ability, Weapon Finesse.
White: Combat Intuition, Disease Immunity, Master Manipulator, Mind over Body, Law Devotion, Negotiator.

Surmount Ability: Auramancers gain an knack for certain things as they travel the planes. Upon reaching fourth level, an auramancer gains a surmount ability based on their color.

Black: You have learned how to manipulate people to get what you need. When making an intimidate check to influence somebody's behavior, their attitude shifts only to neutral (or unfriendly if they were unfriendly to start with).
Blue: You are a great scholar. Making a knowledge check to identify a monster is a free action instead of a standard action.
Green: You have an affinity with beasts of all shapes and sizes. You may use the Handle Animal skill on Aberrations, Magical Beasts, and Vermin just as easily as you could an animal.
Red: When you want something done, it better be done quick. When using a skill in a shorter amount of time than normal (such as tumbling while running, or picking a lock as a move action) you suffer only half the penalties, rounded down.
White: You're able to convey your thoughts and actions to others even through language barriers. You may make diplomacy checks against creatures who do not share a language with you (but still have a language) with a -5 penalty.


Secondary Color: Upon reaching sixth level, an auramancer gains a secondary color. The auramancer must choose another color from the list of five, and she can now choose auras from that color's list. Additionally, auras she creates of her primary color have their saving throw DCs increased by one.

Peak Ability: An auramancer of eighth level has gained some experience using their abilities and have started to master their color. The bonus an auramancer gains is dependent on their primary color.

Black: A black auramancer has learned how to recover from webs of lies they have spun. Once per day, when a black auramancer fails a bluff, disguise, or intimidate check, they may make a second check in the following round. If the check is successful, the previous failure is undone.
Blue: A blue auramancer has learned how to how to identify certain quirks about people from their writing. A blue auramancer may use the decipher script skill to identify certain aspects about the writer. An auramancer can determine the targets type and/or subtype and whether or not what is written is false information. The DC is equal to 10+ the charisma score of the person who wrote the piece.
Green: A green auramancer has learned how to strike a path for his allies to move through. When a green auramancer and his allies move overland, he may make a survival check. The DC is equal to 15+2 for each ally he wishes to effect. If the check is successful, they may move at full speed no matter what the terrain.
Red: A red auramancer has learned how to let their passions drive them. Whenever making a skill check for a skill in which the auramancer has full ranks, she may choose to add 1d6 to the result. This must be decided before the auramancer rolls the skill check. This ability is usable once per day.
White: A white auramancer has learned how to size up people through merely talking to them. While interacting with an intelligent being which the auramancer shares a language with, they may make a special sense motive check. The DC is equal to 10+the Hit Dice of the target. If your check is successful, you may discern if the targets alignment differs from yours and by how many steps.

Double Aura: An auramancer of eighth level or higher may have two auras projected simultaneously. The second aura must be at least one tier lower than the highest tier of auras the auramancer can project (for instance, an 11th-level auramancer could have a lesser aura and a greater aura active at the same time).

Widened Auras: An aura projected by a ninth level auramancer extends out to 60 feet instead of 30 feet.

Mastered Emulation: An auramancer of eleventh level can emulate any race when using magic items.

Tertiary Color: Upon reaching twelfth level, an auramancer gains access to his third and final color. He can from then on choose auras of that third color. All auras project of her primary and secondary colors have their saving throw DCs increased by one.

Retether: If a target would succeed on a saving throw against an aura projected by a fourteenth level auramancer, they must make a second saving throw in the next round.

Perfect Emulation: An Auramancer of sixteenth level can emulate any alignment when using magic items.

Prime Ability: Upon reaching twentieth level, an auramancer has mastered their abilities, taking them to a level of skill few can hope to attain. They gain a prime ability based upon their primary color:

Black: A black auramancer has become adept at hiding their body as easily as they hide their motives. A black auramancer may now hide even while being observed, as the hide in plain sight class feature.
Blue: A blue auramancer has learned how to perfect their subtle art of disguising. The auramancer may now use Alter Self and Charm Person as a supernatural ability at will. The DC for Charm Person is 11+charisma modifier.
Green: A green auramancer has walked every terrain in existance. A green auramancer is no longer effected by rough terrain, negative planar effects, and doesn't trigger any floor-based traps.
Red: A red auramancer has learned to truly embrace their chaos. Nobody, not even them, can predict their next move. They gain the Uncanny Dodge and Greater Uncanny Dodge class features.
White: Your prowess for healing has surpassed mortal hands. With a successful heal check you may now cure magical diseases, curses and poisons. The DC is equal to the saving throw DC of the spell, poison, or disease.

Aether Storm
Evocation
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)

Every round at the start of your turn, each enemy within your aura takes 2d4 points of electricity damage (reflex half).

When you expend the aura, you cast a combined Gust of Wind and Lightning Bolt, knocking the enemy back and shocking them. They are launched backwards 60 feet as described in the Gust of Wind spell and take 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (max 10d6).

If an opponent fails its saving throw, it must save the next round or become frightened. Frightened foes that remain within the aura must make a saving throw on the third round or become panicked. A successful save after the first indicates that the condition does not worsen, nor does it get better. And they must make another saving throw in the next round.

When you expend this aura, you create a charming illusion of a wide, open field. This illusion strikes fear into the hearts of your enemies. Every enemy within the aura (even those who made their original saving throw), must make another Will save or become paralyzed with fear for one round.

Allies also gain Damage Reduction 10/evil and a fly speed of 60 ft.

Enchantment [Red, Compulsion, Mind-Affecting]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Your allies hear sharp insults being hurled at them and notice that you look like their most hated enemy. With a newborn rage, they attack.

Enemies entering your aura must succeed on a will saving throw or be compelled to attack you. They may attack you with ranged attacks and spells, and will not take any obviously harmful means of attempting to hurt you (such as moving through fire or drawing attacks of opportunity), unless they would normally do so.

Whenever an enemy's attack misses you that is so compelled, they take 2d6 points of damage. At the end of any round in which an enemy does not attack you, they also take 2d6 points of damage.

Spell Resistance: No

You and your allies become amorphous and flexible. Much like an ooze you are able to slip through cracks with the greatest of ease.

Allies within your aura become ooze-like and very flexible, granting them a +4 bonus to dexterity. Allies are able to move through liquids quite well, granting them a swim speed equal to their base land speed. Allies' organs shift around and are hard to place, giving them light fortification (as the armor enhancement). In addition, allies are able to move through spaces up to one size smaller than them and other allies' squares without squeezing.

When you expend the aura, enemies in the aura must succeed at a fortitude save, or become amorphous blobs for one round. The sudden change is shocking, thus an enemy so effected drops anything they were carrying (including grappled characters).

Arachnus Web
Conjuration [Creation, Green]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Effect: Strands of sticky web
Saving Throw: Reflex partial and reflex negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

All around you, the ground is coated in a sticky web such as that created by a trap door spider. Your foes struggle to escape the sticky strands as you lurk closer, like a spider waiting to strike.

This aura creates a plane of sticky web-like material on the ground around you. Enemies walking into the web must succeed on a reflex saving throw or become entangled. Enemies that succeed on the saving throw merely move through the area as though it were difficult terrain. Foes must make a new saving throw every round at the beginning of your turn.

You and your allies are immune to the web and can walk on it normally.

When you expend this aura, each enemy in the radius must succeed on a reflex save or become entangled and immobilized for 1d4 rounds as the strands reach up and attempt to cocoon them.

Archetype of Endurance
Conjuration [Green, Summoning]
Level: Auramancer Master (7th)
Effect: One dire boar
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

A large boar appears as if from nowhere. In its presence, your allies feel like they can take on anything.

When you project this aura, a dire boar comes to your aid. The boar must stay within your aura if at all possible. If separated from you, it does its best to return to you although it will not if doing so would be dangerous (for example, if it is surrounded by enemies it will attempt to fight them instead of drawing attacks of opportunity). While the boar is alive and within your aura, allies gain a +10 bonus constitution and are immune to all diseases and poisons.

If the boar is slain, the aura is immediately expended. You may expend the aura before the boar is slain, but doing so returns the boar to its home plane. You may expend the aura as an immediate action to protect an ally from any one harmful effect. This could be a single attack, a single spell, or a single source of damage.

Necromancy [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)

Artificer's Intuition
Divination [Blue]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)

Your allies receive a sudden stroke of genius. Scrolls were once papers with scribbles, but now they are pieces of an intricate magical puzzle. Wands were no more than mere sticks, but they are the spark that lights the flame.

Allies within your aura gain a +5 competence bonus on Use Magic Device checks, and may use the skill untrained. At level 10, the bonus doubles to +10.

When you expend the aura, you may cast Detect Magic as the spell.

Asceticism
Abjuration [Green]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)

Spell Resistance: Yes

Not all silences are easily broken.

When you project this aura, the area within your aura is affected as though by a Silence spell. All sound is stopped: Conversation is impossible, spells with verbal components cannot be cast, and no noise whatsoever issues from, enters, or passes through the area. An unwilling creature can attempt a Will save to negate the spell and can use spell resistance, if any. Items in a creature’s possession or magic items that emit sound receive the benefits of saves and spell resistance, but unattended objects and points in space do not. This spell provides a defense against sonic or language-based attacks.

Once per round as a spell-like ability you may use a targeted Dispel Magic on any item you can see within your aura (caster level equal to your auramancer level)

When you expend the aura, you may create an Antimagic Field that lasts for a number of rounds equal to your charisma bonus.

You gain the spell-like ability to turn people to gold. The subject, along with all its carried gear, turns into a mindless, inert statue. Creatures that succeed on their saving throw take 1d6 points of dexterity damage. If the statue resulting from this spell is broken or damaged, the subject (if ever returned to its original state) has similar damage or deformities. The creature is not dead, but it does not seem to be alive either when viewed with spells such as deathwatch.

Only creatures made of flesh are affected by this spell.

When you expend this aura, you may create a wall of gold. This is similar to a Wall of Iron spell, but with the following differences: Creatures that attempt to scale the wall or move through a destroyed section must make a fortitude save each round or take 1d8 strength damage. The wall lasts for 1 round per auramancer level, after which it turns to sand.

When you expend the aura, the barbed wire attempts to entangle foes. Those who fail their save are immobilized for one turn and take 1d6 points of piercing damage per two auramancer levels (max 5d6).

Barbed Foliage
Transmutation [Green]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
Effect: Thorned grasses and weeds
Saving Throw: Reflex partial
Spell Resistance: Yes

Wherever you go, you transform the land into a weapon.

Within your aura is a constant entangle spell. Each time an enemy fails their reflex save against the entangle, they take 1d4 points of piercing damage and bleed for 1 point of damage each round. The wounding effect is cumulative.

When you expend your aura, you may choose to have the foliage attempt to grapple or trip enemies. If tripping, the foliage gets +8 to their roll (+4 strength, +4 for multiple limbs). If you choose to have them grapple, the bonus is equal to your auramancer level +8 (+4 strength, +4 for multiple limbs). Either way, if the enemy fails their check they take 1d4 points of damage per auramancer level of piercing damage and gain wounding 2.

Blood Reckoning
Necromancy [Black]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates and fortitude negates.

When you expend the aura, the blowflies mature and burst forth from the enemies, dealing damage equal to half your auramancer level, and sickening enemies. A successful fortitude save halves the damage and negates the sickening.


Boon Reflection
Universal [White]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

A surge of positive energy surrounds you, empowering healing spells.

All Conjuration (Healing) spells and spell-like abilities used within your aura have their caster level increased by five. This may not allow a spell to heal more than its usual maximum (for example, Cure Light Wounds cast by a second-level cleric will only heal for 1d8+5, not 1d8+7).

When you expend the aura, choose a creature within in. That creature is subject to a Cure Light Wounds spell at your caster level.

Breeding Pit

Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Effect: One Thrull minion
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

A twisted being crawls forth to serve you.

This aura summons a Thrall to serve you (see below). You have mental control of the thrull and a telepathic bond. Directing it to attack a foe is a free action, anything more difficult requires a move action. The thrull must stay within your aura. If it is forcibly removed from your aura, it will do everything in its power to get back to its master.

To expend the aura, your thrull must still be alive. When you expend the aura, the thrull dies, granting you and your allies a +4 bonus on Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution for a number of rounds equal to your charisma bonus.

This aura can be prematurely expended if the thrull minion is slain.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Cinge (Su): As a standard action, a Thrull can cower in fear. This is a mind-affecting effect. Any opponent attempting to strike or otherwise directly attack a cringing Thrull, even with a targeted spell, must attempt a will save (DC 11). If the save succeeds, the opponent can attack normally and is immune to the effect of the Thrull's cringe for one day. If the save fails, the opponent can't follow through with the attack, that part of the attacker's action is lost, and the attacker can't directly attack the Thrull for as long as it continues to cringe. If the Thrull stops cringing, then cringes again, the opponent may attempt a new Will save to attack it.
Sneak Attack (Ex): Any time a Thrull's target is denied its Dexterity bonus or when it is being flanked by the Thrull, the Thrull deals an additional 1d6 points of damage on its attack.



Burden of Guilt
Enchantment [White, Compulsion, Mind-Affecting]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Will negates and will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

A shadow of doubt lingers in the minds of your foes, as they are shown the errors of their ways.

This aura fills your enemies with unease, making them less effective in combat. If an enemy within your aura fails a will save, it receives a -1 penalty on attack rolls for every auramancer levels you posess.

When you expend the aura, enemies within it must succeed at a will saving throw or be unable to directly attack you or your allies for one round. They may take attacks of opportunity and otherwise defend themselves, however. If the enemy is attacked by an ally, the pacifying effect is immediately ended on them.

Call to the Grave
Conjuration [Black, Evil, Summoning]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
I Skeleton and Zombie arms reaching up from earth
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

The air around you smells like freshly dug earth. Suddenly, zombified, mummified, and skeletonized limbs grasp upwards at the legs of your foes; clawing, grasping, and pulling them down.

Each round, at the beginning of your turn, enemies within your aura are attacked by the multiple undead limbs reaching up from the ground.

For each enemy you may choose to have them claw, grab, or trip your opponents. If you choose to claw them, make an attack roll with using your caster level as your base attack, +5 for the arm's strength. If the claw hits, it deals 1d6+5 points of damage.

If you chose to have the arm grab an opponent, make a touch attack using the same bonus. If the attack hits, multiple limbs try to hold the opponent still. Make a grapple check using your caster level as the base attack +9 to account for multiple limbs and the arms' high strength. If the check succeeds, the enemy is considered grappled. If an opponent is grappled, the arms will attempt to pin the enemy using the same bonus next round.

If you chose to have the arms trip the enemy, make a touch attack as above. If the attack is successful, make an opposed strength check against the enemy (bonus +5), if the trip attempt is successful, the enemy falls to the ground.

Chill
Evocation [Blue, Cold]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Saving Throw: Fortitude partial and fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You can start to see your breath as the air around you becomes unearthly chilly. Water freezes and your opponents start to numb.

Each round, enemies within your aura take 1d4 points of cold damage and are numbed, giving them a -2 penalty to dexterity. A successful fortitude save halves the damage and negates the dexterity penalty.

When you expend the aura, you fatigue all enemies within its radius (fort negates).

Circle of Affliction
Abjuration [Black]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Effect: Intricate chalk design on ground at edge of aura
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: No

A magical black ward protects your allies an punishes your enemies.

When you project this aura, you must choose an alignment (Good, Evil, Law, Chaos). This aura's sub-type is the opposite of the alignment chosen. You and your allies receive the benefits of a Protection From spell matching the alignment chosen. In addition, outsiders and summoned creatures of the alignment take 2d6 points of damage every round they remain within your aura (no save).

When you expend this aura, it deals 1d6 points of unholy damage per two auramancer levels (max 5d6) to each enemy of the chosen alignment within your aura.

Coalition Flag
Enchantment [White, Compulsion, Mind-Affecting]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: No

You now bear a spectral flag, complete with your seal. Your enemies appear to focus on you.

Enemies within your aura that fail their saving throw are compelled to attack you. They may use spells and special attacks, even those that target multiple enemies, as long as you are one of those targets. Foes so compelled will not take obviously harmful means of attempting to hurt you (such as moving through fire or drawing attacks of opportunity), unless they would normally do so.

When you expend this aura, you gain a +2 sacred bonus to armor class for one round, and enemies that were compelled to attack you still continue to do so. At fifth level and every five levels therafter, this bonus increases by 2.

Crippling Blight
Necromancy [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Fort negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Your enemies' muscles and bones ache, causing them to open their defenses more often.

Enemies within your aura take a -1 penalty to armor class and -4 penalty on attacks of opportunity. At 10th level, the penalties increase to -2 on armor class and -8 on attacks of opportunity.

When you expend this aura, the penalty doubles until the start of your next turn.

Crown of Suspicion
Transmutation [Black]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Effect: Smoky black crowns floating over allies' heads
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: No

A pale black crown made of smoking ice floats just above your allies' heads. They are much more adept at picking out openings in your enemies' defenses.

All allies within your aura gain the benefits of the Combat Reflexes feat, whether or not they meet the prerequisites.

When you expend the aura, each ally gains +10 on their next sense motive check made within the round.

Crumbling Ashes
Evocation [Black, Fire]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
Effect: Columns of black ash scorching foes
Saving Throw: Reflex half and reflex half
Spell Resistance: Yes

Pillars of ashes rain down upon your foes, scorching them alive.

Each round as a standard action that draws attacks of opportunity, you may call down a pillar of ashes to scorch a foe. The pillar does 1d6 points of damage per two auramancer levels (reflex half), half of which is unholy damage, and the other half is fire damage.

When you expend the aura, you call down two empowered columns on two separate enemies.

Any creature reduced to 0 or fewer hit points by this spell is entirely disintegrated, leaving behind only a trace of fine dust. A disintegrated creature’s equipment is unaffected.

Decomposition
Necromancy [Good, Green]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Fortitude half and fortitude negates (Object)
Spell Resistance: Yes

Unnatural beings begin to turn to dust before your eyes.

When you project this aura, all aberrations, constructs, and undead start to decompose within your aura. Each creature with the aberration, construct or undead type that ends their turn within your aura takes 1d4 damage, +1/2 levels (fortitude half).

When you expend this aura, creatures within your aura of those creature types that are normally immune to critical hits or sneak attacks must succeed on a fortitude save or lose that immunity for one round per caster level.

Diabolic Servitude
Necromancy [Black, Evil]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

The bones of your fallen foes start to reform and rise to aid you.

This aura turns the bones or bodies of dead creatures into undead skeletons or zombies that follow your spoken commands. Whenever a creature is slain within your aura, you may choose to take 1 damage per hit die of the slain foe to raise it for a number of rounds equal to twice the damage you took.

The undead can follow you, or they can remain in an area and attack any creature (or just a specific kind of creature) entering the place. They remain animated for a number of minutes equal to your charisma bonus or until they are destroyed. (A destroyed skeleton or zombie can’t be animated again.)

Regardless of the type of undead you create with this spell, you can’t create more HD of undead than twice your caster level. If you exceed this number, all the newly created creatures fall under your control, and any excess undead become uncontrolled. (You choose which creatures are released.) When you create an undead, you take damage equal to its Hit Dice. Created undead cannot leave your aura or they become uncontrolled.


Skeletons:
A skeleton can be created only from a mostly intact corpse or skeleton. The corpse must have bones. If a skeleton is made from a corpse, the flesh falls off the bones.

Zombies:
A zombie can be created only from a mostly intact corpse. The corpse must be that of a creature with a true anatomy.

When you expend this aura, the undead creatures explode into a 10 ft. radius cloud of choking dust. Each enemy within those areas must succeed on a fortitude save or be stunned until the start of your next turn as they are coughing in the dust.

Elephant Guide
Conjuration [Green, Summoning]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

An incorporeal elephant appears to guide you to your goal.

When you project this aura, an elephant spirit appears to guide you. The spirit is incorporeal, large sized, and is bound to you and must stay within your aura. Though, as an incorporeal being it can move through solid objects. While you have the guidance of the elephant, you and your allies get a +5 bonus on survival checks. At 10th level this bonus increases to +10.

When you expend the aura, the elephant guide may attack any foe within your aura with its trunk. At 5th level, you may instruct your elephant guide to make two such attacks before the aura is expended, and at 15th you may instruct it to make three attacks.

Enemies within your aura are distracted by the whispers around them, giving them a -5 penalty on listen checks and concentration checks.

When the last saproling is destroyed, the aura is expended. If you expend the aura before the saprolings die, you cast an entangle spell that stays within the aura's bounds for 2d6 rounds.

The saprolings are completely loyal and have a mental link with you. Commanding them to attack enemies is a free action, but anything else requires a move action. Having a low intelligence, the saprolings can't carry out complex orders.

Here's the aura ability I made for you:

Auras (Su or Sp, see text): An auramancer's art is that of enchanting allies or enemies. He can learn to produce different effects, or auras, over the course of his career. The auramancer may project one aura at a time.

Projecting an aura is a swift action. The aura remains in effect until the auramancer uses a free action to dismiss it or activates another aura of the same kind (major or minor). an auramancer can have an aura active continually; thus, an aura can be in effect at the start of a combat encounter even before the auramancer takes his first turn.

Each auras has two parts, a passive and an activated ability. When an aura is in effect, the passive ability is applied to each target in range, and at any time as a standard action (unless otherwise noted), the auramancer may use the activated ability as a spell-like ability. This action ends the aura and puts it on a cooldown, and the auramancer cannot use the aura again for [time].

An auramancer is entitled to a Concentration check to successfully activate an aura if he is hit by an attack while activating, just as a spellcaster would be. an auramancer can choose to activate an aura's activated ability defensively, by making a successful Concentration check, to avoid provoking attacks of opportunity. an auramancer’s auras are subject to spell resistance unless an aura’s description specifically states otherwise. an auramancer’s caster level with his auras is equal to his auramancer level.

The save DC for an aura (if it allows a save) is 10 + equivalent spell level + the auramancer’s Charisma modifier. Since spell-like abilities are not actually spells, an auramancer cannot benefit from the Spell Focus feat. He can, however, benefit from the Ability Focus feat (see page 303 of the Monster Manual), as well as from feats that emulate metamagic effects for spell-like abilities, such as Quicken Spell-Like Ability and Empower Spell-Like Ability (see pages 303 and 304 of the Monster Manual), but such feats only apply to the activated ability.

Unless otherwise noted, an auramancer's aura affects all targets within 60 feet (including himself) that are within line of effect. Unlike other supernatural abilities, an aura can be dispelled. If an aura is dispelled, it is put on cooldown as if its activated ability had been used.

The four grades of auras, in order of their relative power, are least, lesser, greater, and master. an auramancer begins with knowledge of two auras, which must be of the lowest grade (least) and of his primary color. As an auramancer gains levels, he learns new auras, as summarized on the class Table. A list of available auras can be found following this class description.

At any level when an auramancer learns a new auras, he can also replace an auras he already knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade. At 6th level, an auramancer can replace a least auras he knows with a different least auras (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be either least or lesser). At 11th level, an auramancer can replace a least or lesser auras he knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be least, lesser, or greater). At 16th level, an auramancer can replace a least, lesser, or greater auras he knows with another auras of the same or a lower grade (in addition to learning a new auras, which could be least, lesser, greater, or master).



And the capstone I had proposed:


Mana Incarnate: A level 20 auramancer becomes a creature of pure, unbridled magic whose very existence affects the world around him. His type changes to Elemental, and he gains a +2 inherent bonus to three abilities scores of his choice. Unlike other elementals, the auramancer can still be brought back from the dead as if she were a member of her previous creature type.

Additionally, he gains other abilities based on his primary color:

White: the auramancer gains the Armageddon aura and a fly speed equal to his base land speed with good maneuverability.

Blue: the auramancer gains the Time Spiral aura and a fly speed equal to twice his base land speed with perfect maneuverability.

Black: the auramancer gains the Yawgmoth's Will aura and (something)

Red: the auramancer gains the Obliterate aura and immunity to fire, electricity, and sonic damage.

Green: the auramancer gains the Hurricane aura and immunity to natural hazards such as storms, lava, or the effects of being on another plane.


1


Incarnate Auras
Unlike other auramancer auras, incarnate auras can be in effect while another aura is active. Once per week, the auramancer can activate the secondary ability of the aura as a free action. When the activated ability is on cooldown, the incarnate aura's passive effect still remains available, unlike with normal auras.


Armageddon
"I will show you fear in a handful of dust."

Passive Effect: The auramancer's presence disperses magical energies around him. Whenever another creature within 120 feet of the auramancer uses a spell-like ability, casts a spell, or activates a psionic power, that creature must succeed at a caster or manifester level check (DC 10 + the auramancer's level + the auramancer's charisma modifier) or the ability, spell, or power is countered.

Activated Ability: The auramancer releases a pulse of white magic, causing indiscriminate destruction in a 120-foot radius circle. Each creature and object in the area of Armageddon's active effect takes 1d6 points of force damage per two auramancer levels, and the area is treated as if on a plane with the dead magic trait (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/planes.htm) for 24 hours.

1

Time Spiral
"Any oaf can conquer a kingdom. It takes true power to conquer time."


Passive Effect: The auramancer gains mastery over short-term events, allowing him to rewind and redo actions in his favor. This aura grants the auramancer and his allies within 120 feet an insight bonus on all rolls equal to the auramancer's charisma modifier.

Activated Ability: Seizing control of time itself, the auramancer revitalizes himself and targets of his choice in his aura. Creatures affected by the Time Spiral regain hit points and heal ability damage as if they had rested for the night, and all spent power points, abilities, and spell slots are returned to them. Objects affected by the Time Spiral are returned to the state they were in 24 hours previous, repairing damage or breaking newly-repaired items.

However, each creature affected by the Time Spiral must make a will save (DC 10 + the auramancer's level + the auramancer's charisma modifier) or be dazed for one round, as they readjust to the new time frame.

1

Yawgmoth's Will
"The essence of every world, every spell, and every thought is power. Nothing else matters, because nothing else exists."


Passive Effect: The auramancer's power is so great that he can ignore some of the laws of magic and regain energy already returned to the world. Once per round as a free action, the auramancer may instantly recover an aura that he has previously activated and placed on cooldown. His active changes to that one.

Activated Ability: Until the end of the auramancer's turn, he can use any of the activated abilities of auras he's already placed on cooldown as free actions.

1

Obliterate
For his family, Barrin made a funeral pyre of Tolaria.

Passive Effect: The sheer raw energies produced by the auramancer's body rends the world asunder. At the beginning of the auramancer's turn, every object and enemy within 120 feet takes 1d6 points of damage per five auramancer levels each of sonic, fire, and electricity.

Activated Ability: The auramancer focuses his power and casts a forbidden spell, destroying everything in a large radius. Obliterate deals 5d6 points of damage each of sonic, fire, and electricity to every creature and object within one mile per five auramancer levels. This damage is half raw magic, overcoming 50% of resistances and immunities, including the auramancer's own.

1

Hurricane
"Let nothing own the skies but the wind."

Passive Effect: Calling on the forces of nature and infusing the air with Green magic, the auramancer creates an area of inclement weather within 120 feet of him. Inside the cylinder, the auramancer can control the wind's speed up to a windstorm level. His allies are immune to the effects of the Hurricane aura unless he specifically targets them.

Activated Ability: Increasing the power of the magic, the auramancer enhances his storm into a widespread force of destruction. For one minute per auramancer level, the radius of the Hurricane aura increases to one mile, and the auramancer may increase the winds to speeds of up to 10 mph per auramancer level, and may call down and control one tornado per auramancer level for the duration of the activated ability.


At this point the capstone is mostly pseudo-balanced, strong abilities based on what I thought would be a cool, powerful capstone using the flavor the the spells I pulled from Magic. Thoughts?


Some red least auras:
Red Least Auras:



Agility: Allies gain +1 to dexterity-based checks, including ranged attacks and initiative checks. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability to double this bonus for one round.

Curse of the Pierced Heart: At the beginning of your turn, each enemy takes one point of piercing damage. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability to deal 1d6 points of piercing damage to each enemy in range.

Flaming Sword: Allies deal an extra 1 point of fire damage on each melee attack. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability to grant the weapons of each ally in range the flaming property for one round.

Seal of Fire (Sp): Instead of affecting everything in range like a normal aura, this aura allows you to place an explosive seal in a square within your aura radius as a standard action. As a free action, you may activate this aura’s secondary ability to detonate every seal you’ve placed, dealing 1d6 damage per two auramancer levels (max 5d6) to each creature in or adjacent to a square with a seal.

Malicious Intent: Enemies in range do not gain shield bonuses to armor class. When you activate this aura’s secondary ability, enemies in range lose their dexterity bonuses to armor class for one round.

Racecourse Fury: Each ally in range increases their land speed by 10 feet. This is an enchantment bonus. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability to increase this bonus to 30 feet for one round.

Dizzying Gaze: Enemies in range with flying reduce their flight speed by 10 feet. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability to double this penalty for one round. If the enemy’s fly speed is reduced to zero by this aura, they fall, taking damage based on how high they were in the air.

Eternal Warrior: Allies in range get +1 to armor class. You may activate this aura’s secondary ability as an immediate action to grant all allies in range an additional +2 to armor class for one round (total +3 bonus).

I would say I am impressed with the balance of this class, I would play it, but don't consider it Over powered in the least. Ofcoarse depending on higher level auras that may very well change.

Idea's for the capstone

Personal Aura

Secondary(Time): For each turn a creature takes they must succeed a dc 25 will save or fall out of time, They disappear with out a trace and can not be effected by anything. they reappear on their next round and don't need to make a save
Tertiary(Knowledge): Once per round you may make a skill check using the skill total of another character in the aura's radius

Black:
Primary(Death): Every round spent in your aura causes a negative energy charge to build up When this charge reaches 10 you must make a fortitude save with a dc equal 10+number of charges or die, if you're immune to death effects you instead take one damage per charge

That is likely, once we get around to actually finishing the class itself.

Red Lesser Auras
Firebreathing: Allies in range deal an extra 1d6 points of fire damage per two auramancer levels (max 5d6) on melee attacks.

You may expend this aura to grant each ally in range a breath weapon for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier, or until the ally in question uses it. This breath weapon is a 30ft cone or a 60ft line, and deals 1d6 points of fire damage per two auramancer levels (max 5d6).

Manabarbs: Whenever a creature in range uses a spell-like ability, casts a spell, or activates a psionic power, that creature takes one point of damage per auramancer level (reflex for half).

You may expend this aura as an immediate action to negate any number of successful saves.

Claws of Valakut: Allies in range gain a pair of stone claws. They gain two natural attacks, each dealing d8 points of damage (2d6 if they are Large, or 1d6[url=] (]1[/url) if they are Small) plus their Strength bonus. These claws do not interfere with held items, but a claw cannot be used in the same attack action as a weapon held in it.

You may expend this aura to wreath the claws in flame for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier. During this time, the claws are treated as one size larger for the purposes of damage, and are treated as if they have the flaming and speed enchantments.

Curse of Stalked Prey: Enemies in range take a penalty to armor class equal to your Charisma modifier (will save negates), and allies in range deal extra damage to those enemies on each attack equal to your charisma modifier.

You may expend this aura as an immediate action to double these bonuses and penalties (a second will save can be taken to negate the doubling, in which case the enemy in question only has the normal penalty to armor class) for one round.

Destructive Urge: Whenever an ally in range strikes an enemy spellcaster or manifester in melee, that enemy must make a will save or lose one spell slot of their highest level (chosen at random) or an amount of power points equal to the cost of an unaugmented power of the manifester’s highest level known.

You may expend this aura to grant allies the ability to see how many spell slots or power points each enemy in range has left for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier, during which the passive effect of this aura stays in effect.

Galvanic Arc: Mana-infused lightning arcs between creatures in range, dealing electricity damage equal to your Charisma modifier to enemies at the start of each round, and granting allies an enchantment bonus to initiative equal to your Charisma modifier.

You may expend this aura to coalesce these bolts of energy into a single blast, dealing 1d6 points of electricity damage per two auramancer levels (max 10d6) to each creature within a 60ft line. This bolt sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals with a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier shatters or breaks through it, the bolt may continue beyond the barrier if the spell’s range permits; otherwise, it stops at the barrier just as any other effect does.

Ion Storm: Unlike other auras, this one does not affect each creature in range. You create a small sphere of rippling electricity, fire, and mana in one 5ft square within range (this space can be occupied). Anything sharing its space with this sphere takes 1d6 points of damage per turn from the raw energies contained within (reflex for half). At the beginning of each of your turns, you may create another sphere in a location within your aura’s range.

You may expend this aura to gather and detonate the spheres, dealing 1d6 points of damage per two auramancer levels (max 10d6) to each creature within a 20ft spread, centered within 60ft. This damage is equally fire and electricity, and any resistances of immunities to either of them only apply to half of the damage (a creature immune to both types of damage takes no damage as normal).

Lust for War: Whenever an enemy within range makes an attack action, it takes 1d6 points of damage for every point of your Charisma modifier (fortitude negates). At the beginning of each enemy’s turn, they must make a will save or attack their nearest enemy instead of whatever they planned on doing. If they have no enemies within range, they will move towards their nearest enemy instead, then attack, charging if possible.

You may expend this aura to cause each enemy in range to charge the nearest creature (ally or enemy) on their next turn, taking damage as if the passive effect of the aura was still active (will negates).

Undying Rage: Each ally in range gains the benefit of the Diehard feat.

You may expend this aura to cause each dying ally in range to stabilize.

The expend cooldowns writeup:


At level one, an auramancer may expend each least aura he has learned once per day.

At level 5, the auramancer's ability to refresh his auras improves, allowing him to expend each least aura once per encounter, and his newly-learned lesser auras once per day each.

At level 10, the auramancer's auras improve again, and he may expend least auras once every 1d4 rounds, lesser auras once per encounter, and greater auras once per day.

At level 15, the auramancer is a master of his craft, and may expend least auras at will, lesser auras once every 1d4 rounds, greater auras once per encounter, and master auras once per day.

I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes.

Me too. It's starting at level nine, and I'm starting out Black, then going either Blue or Red. I'm going to be a grixis 'mancer.

Going to work on being a debuffer that uses Goad to get enemies close. Maybe be a tripper too?

Noticed the class table was wonky, so I updated it, along with the class.

Added in the description of a few new auras, let me know what you think.

I'm unsure, but I think least auras will become redundant at mid to high levels. Little abilities like +1 ac become negligible. Could a meta-aura be made, doubling (or something) an aura's effects and making it an aura of the next level. I might look through my enchantments and make some auras tonight.

2014-05-27, 02:27 PM
yay, magic the gathering!

Boo, no "master" auras at all and 2 colors don't have greater aura's either.

Also, some minor stuff:

Add "this stacks with the increase from secondary color" to the tertiary color DC bonus segment.
And I'd say, give access only to lower level aura's for secondary and tertiary colors (one level lower for secondary and two levels lower for tertiary)


Might poke into the actual aura's later on... though I'd have to find some time somewhere to do so first...

True, but by the time it wouldn't matter you should have double auras, so you can combine older ones with newer ones.

Please do, I'll give them a look-see when I can.

Added some master auras, I'm pretty curious as to what people think of their power, I'm working on adding in some more auras as well.

This is a really cool concept; I always love MtG-themed homebrew. Thematically, the class seems really solid. Mechanically, I would like to see fewer dead levels (levels 7 and 19 give +1 BAB and level 17 gives nothing) and have the auras scale better (maybe base numbers off of Cha and/or Auramancer level rather than just providing flat numbers).

I'm giving them a capstone and am going to fill dead levels with minor abilities like I did for level four.

Bump, currently playing this in a game to test it out.

I'm playing a Green auramancer: Nigel Cliffton (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OJ0iaVSGkpJ9EX_JivUy0b2BHcQhZsUYahHvuRSQedA/edit?usp=sharing)

I'm currently working on the aura descriptions whenever I get a chance. I could add more auras as more magic sets come out, but that is a goal for another time.

Should've reserved a third post, since the descriptions are running a bit long. :x

Aura Descriptions, Q-Z

Relic Bane
Abjuration [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Reflex half and reflex negates (see text)
Spell Resistance: No

The very magical trinkets that your enemies use turn on them, shocking them with magical energies.

Whenever an enemy within your aura attempts to activate a magic item, they take 1d6 points of electricity damage, +1 per auramancer level (reflex half)

When you expend this aura, enemies within it must succeed on a reflex save or drop any held items.

Seizures
Necromancy [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Effect: Convulsions in enemies
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates and reflex negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Your enemies are wracked with horrible seizures, causing convulsions.

Enemies within your aura must succeed on a fortitude save or take a -2 penalty to dexterity and initiative checks. At level 10, this penalty is doubled to -4.

When you expend the aura, each enemy within your aura must succeed on a reflex save or be knocked prone.

Skeletal Grimace
Illusion [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Effect: Skeletal visages on your allies
Saving Throw: None and Will negates, see text
Spell Resistance: No

Ghostly skeletal visages form upon the faces of your allies, disturbing those around you.

Allies within your aura gain an illusory skeletal guise over their face. This mask grants you and your allies a +4 competence bonus on intimidate checks, and any fear spells or abilities that cause fear have their saving throw DCs increased by 1. At level 5, the intimidate bonus increases to +6 and the saving throw DCs increase by 2. At 10th level, the bonuses further increase to a +8 bonus to intimidate checks and a +3 bonus on saving throw DCs. Finally at 15th level, the intimidate bonus increases to +10 and the saving throw DCs are increased by 4.

When you expend this aura, the visages disappear from your faces and form a large skeletal head that strikes fear into your enemies. Enemies within sight of the illusion must succeed on a Will save (including the increase to DCs that the aura provided) or be shaken for 1d4 rounds.

Torment
Enchantment [Black]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Will negates and fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Creeping thoughts and doubts creep into the minds of your enemies, causing them to stay their hand and weakening their blows.

Enemies within your aura that fail a will save have damage they deal with natural and manufactured weapons reduced by 2. This bonus increases by one for every five auramancer levels you have, up to a maximum of 5 at 15th level.

When you expend this aura, enemies within it are wracked with pain, nauseating them for a round unless they succeed on a fortitude save.


Underworld Connections
Transmutation [Black]
Level: Auramancer Lesser (3rd)
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: No

A dark gray aura exudes from you and your allies, who fight with wicked vigor.

When you project this aura, each ally within gains the fiendish template until you expend it.

You may expend this aura to recover any one other aura that you have expended.

Unholy Strength
Enchantment [Black, Compulsion, Mind-affecting]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: No

You fill your allies with confidence and strength, allowing them to fight much better than before.

Allies within your aura gain a +1 morale bonus to attack and damage rolls per five auramancer levels.

When you expend the aura, allies deal an additional 1d6 points of unholy damage with weapon attacks until the start of your next turn.

Witch's Mist
Conjuration [Black]
Level: Auramancer Greater (5th)
Effect: Purplish Mist
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: None

A macabre haze descends around you, amplifying the pain and wounds of enemies around you.

The area within your aura is filled with an Obscuring Mist, as the spell but with the following differences: You and your allies can see within the mist as though it weren't there, whenever an enemy suffers hit point damage from any source while within the mist, they take an additional 1d4 points of damage. The damage is only applied once per subject per attack or spell. For example, if an enemy within your Witch's Mist is targeted by an allies magic missile, apply the bonus damage only to the first missile, not to each one. You may chose to suppress the mist as a free action each round, but doing so stops the additional damage from occurring and prevents you from expending it as well.

When you expend the aura, you may cast a charm monster spell on each creature in your aura.


Wreath of Geists
Divination [Green]
Level: Auramancer Least (1st)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: None

Your ancestors offer guidance to your allies.

When you project this aura, choose a knowledge. You and your allies within the aura gain a +5 competence bonus on all knowledge checks made of that type. When you expend this aura you cast Speak with Dead at your caster level.
