I think the summoner is a bit redundant, since the Companions from Conjuration are more like Eidolons than regular summons. As in I could never see a purpose to using the eidolon, because I could have 2 equivalent Companions.

You've gotta burn quite a few form talents on a Companion to make them match an Eidolon. Plus, the Eidolon is free. It should be fine.

Yeah, but the other side is that if you don't, then you have no reason to use the Companion.

Also, it isn't as many as you thought. I made an Incanter for a playtest who, at level 6 as a human, had dumped all of his talents into conjuration and all his feats on Extra Magic Talent. I had 3 companions, all of whom could be summoned at once, all of whom lasted 24 hours, and they covered a caster-model (Destruction, focused for blasting), a skillmonkey model, and a melee brute model (and I invested in using a greatsword instead of just using naturals.

Summoner just doesn't work properly in a system with Summon Monster, where anyone can get an eidolon for the cost of like 6 talents (yes, a lot for low-casters but not really for high casters)

Fair. On the other hand, my intention was to make a quick patch so people could use the old classes with these new rules if they wanted to, not to homebrew a whole new summoner class. If you would like to suggest an alternative quick patch, I will happily swap it in, but I'm not planning to spend much time on the summoner.

Keledrath
2015-01-14, 03:05 PM
Honestly, I feel the summoner patch should be: play either an Incanter or a Hedgewitch, and invest at least half of your points into Conjuration.

The problem is that the Summon has 2 things going for it: Ediolon (Anyone who puts a moderate investment in conjuration can match you) and Summons (which this system removes).

I see that we had a lot of similar ideas, but our Witches, Oracles, and Summoners are vastly different.

Edit: I have a feeling Dragon Disciple would be significantly stronger if converted to Spheres of power.

Well, some of them. Some were converted to full casters and just given cleric-speed talent acquisition. My goal is that all of them should be strong enough to be playable on their own merits, but not so strong people feel they're gimping themselves by not taking them. As opposed to the paizo default where 80% of the prestige classes are self-nerfing dross, most of the rest are crazy powerful and only a handful are equivalent to the base classes.

Because I forgot about the patron spells feature when I was writing up the witch, I'll fix it up in the second pass.

One thing I loathe when doing/seeing conversions is that the conversion removes options which previously were available. Sometimes it is unavoidable, but I'd rather increase access when doing so is an alternative. That's why I am unhappy with Dragon Disciple conversion.

The original requirements state any class which can cast spontaneously arcane spells (also, if any bloodline, then it has to be draconic; this one still works for SoP, actually). There is no requirement that the caster needs to be Charisma based. This means that an Arcanist (with Int) can multiclass into a DD*. Or there is the 3rd party class Spellblade which uses also Int. As there is no arcane/divine divide anymore, it can be argued that previously divine spontaneous casters can now multiclass into DD as well. So a Hunter (uses Wis) would fit if doing a naive conversion. Or take a multiclassed Wizard/Bard. After SoP conversion, the Bard part uses Intelligence as casting stat.**

*While the text states the Arcanist prepares spells, mechanic-wise he is a Sorcerer who can switch spells daily. So this is a bit interpretation to allow the Arcanist.

**Actually, you could go Bard/DD first and add then Wizard, at which point of time you might decide to use Intelligence as casting stat. Which would make the character automatically illegal. Considering that the rules state that you have to choose the casting stat whenever you take a level in a new casting class, you'd break a fundamental rule with your restriction and would prevent that after taking DD levels anyone could switch the casting stat.

All of these examples would be forbidden, if you insist on Charisma casters. But you don't need to throw out this requirement completely. "Spontaneous spellcaster" can be approximated by barring casters with the Prepared Caster drawback, which is used in the wizard conversion. If you add in the missing "Must have a Draconic bloodline or choose the Draconic bloodline", then the conversion is as close as you can get.


BTW, instead using Arcane Trickster, I'd use a Hedgewitch with Charlatanism and combat traditions and the Trapfinding option. Probably the best way doing Arcane Trickster short of gestalting Rogue/Incanter.

This looks like some good stuff. I just got Spheres and am in the process of converting things myself. With the magus I am worried about allowing spell strike now since basic sphere abilities are unlimited. I was thinking of having Magi use class level as caster level for Destruction but no spell strike instead like the elementalist. Have you run into problems with infinite spell strike?

Um, there's a talent called Energy Weapon that is basically the single hit Spellstrike.

Looking at the Arcanist's conversion I noticed the Counterspell feature.


Counterspell: Rather than expend a spell slot, expend a number of spell points equal to the number spent on the sphere ability you wish to counter + 1.

This is worse than the actual Counterspell feat which merely requires a single spell point. So to make this ability useful enough that people actually take it is to provide the feat Counterspell as an exploit.
