Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Divinity Thief.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies:
All Simple and Martial Weapons. Not proficient in any armor or shields.

Spellcasting
Spontaneous Divine, CHA based casting.

Defiling Caster
When you cast a spell you suck the energy required from the arcane weave, the life forces near you and the very divinity of the world itself. You do not pray for spells or need any special mumbo-jumbo (though you may chose to apply it), but simply will your spells into existence by tapping into these energies. In order to cast spells each day you need to meditate and tap into these energies for 1 hour after a full night's rest each morning.

When casting a spell chose from the following options:

Divine - You draw the energy needed from the Gods themselves. This has no drawback except that the God you are stealing energy from is made immediately aware upon completion of the spell via their portfolio senses. The God cannot stop you from casting, however they can chose to manifest and confront you.
Nature - You suck the life out of all plants within a radius equal to the spell level times 5. This works the same as the Blighter ability and plants will wilt and start to die several hours later. Spells that have had their level raised through metamagic or any such other enhancement instead immediately destroy all plants and turn the soil into sand.
Pain - You attempt to draw the energy from all non-plant living creatures around you except for yourself. All non-plants within a radius of 30 feet must make a will save equal to 5+ Divinity Thief level +CHA. A total pool of of 5 times the spell level HP drain is inflicted on those who fail their save, divided how the caster chooses in lots of 5 damage. Friendly characters may chose to voluntarily fail their save. Undead of any sort can never be affected by this.
Self - You take 1 randomly assigned point of ability damage per level of the spell being cast (assign each point separately). If you are immune to ability score damage then this option is not available.


Spells of 4th through to 7th level require two methods of drawing power. Spells of 8th and 9th level require three, and 10th level spells require all four methods of powering the spell.

You are immune to all forms of Poison including Supernatural Poison.

Bonus Feat
Select a Bonus Feat from the following list. You must still meet prerequisites for the selected feat.

Quasit Familiar
Gain a Quasit who acts as your familiar. You count as a Wizard equal to your levels in Divinity Thief for the purpose of Familiar bonuses.

Hardened Skin
Gain the listed bonus as a bonus to your Natural Armor Class.

Summoning Mastery
When casting a Summon Monster spell, treat it as if it were a higher level Summon Monster spell. The increase in level is equal to the highest number indicated for your level. So an 8th level Divinity Thief casting Summon Monster IV may chose to cast it as a Summon Monster V spell instead.
This does not affect her level for Defiling.

Resistances
Gain Resistances: Acid 10, Cold 10, Fire 10, and Electricity 20

Telepathy
Gain the Tanar'ri ability to communicate Telepathically to any creature within 100'.

Vile Ascendance
Feeding on the distrust, hatred and pain you have caused you seed your own Divinity. You do not gain the Divine template, instead gaining as follows only:

Divine Rank: You count as having a Divine Rank of 0 and 1 Divine Point for the purpose of feats.

Salient Divine Abilities: You gain 1 Salient Divine Ability as if you had a Divine Rank of 0.

Grant Spells: You are unable to grant spells.

Perform Miracle: You may perform Miracles as noted in the Divine Template

Gathering Storm: 1D10*5% (roll for each settlement) of all Dislike/Distrust Gods religion slots across the world convert to a new religion worshiping you. Should you gain enough Divine Points from this you may expend them to gain an actual rank of 0 the following week.

Legacy of Ascension: If you attain an actual Divine Rank you always count as 1 rank higher for the purpose of attaining more ranks, but also for the purpose of gaining feats.

Could give this class Cleric BaB? The main reason I'm rebuilding is so that I can get Destroyer of the Divine pre-epic. I've also noticed that you have Animate Dead in the third and fourth level spell slots. Is it a 3rd level or 4th level spell.

Gaiyamato
2014-01-15, 06:27 PM
Alright Cleric BAB...

3rd AND 4th level for Animate dead. Gives you a lot more potential castings.

I just want to say, Gai, that this class is the best thing ever. Thank you for brewing it up for me.

I think this (http://makaze-kanra.tumblr.com/ForumTableConverter) will make your life so much easier. It's an old-to-new table converter program.

Skills added, tables fixed.

Ionbound

Oh, one more thing; Since this is a fixed-list casting class, shouldn't it have an Advanced Learning-type ability that lets me customize the spell list to a certain extent?

Gaiyamato
2014-08-21, 04:57 AM
No, most of these classes in D&D 3.5 don't have alternate lists. We could work out an ACF for you though, based on organisation membership or race.

Also the game is probably going to be E9 now. So you will need feats to get the spellcasting above 9th level (5th level spells).
